Survivor 16 - Micronesia!

Thursday, February 7 is the big day, y'all! Survivor will be back with their latest incarnation - Fans vs. Favorites.

Now, I don't know whose favorites these are; I only really, really like about half of them. But I guess we all know that they're really chosen for ratings, not actual likability.

The fans are unknowns, obviously, but here are the ones I think I might like:

Erik - This is one cute kid! He looks so sweet and fun and cuddly; we'll see...
Joel - He's a firefighter! And he looks like he might be nice. Plus, I always like to see people over 30 who aren't from California on this show!
...well, that's about it for the newbies, I guess. I'll definitely have more opinions after the show premieres!

Now for the "favorites." Here are MY favorites in order:

James - Tied with Cirie for my top spot. I can not believe he had two idols and still went home. I hope he wizens up this season.
Cirie - Tied with James.
Jonathan - Sorry, y'all, but I really did like Jonathan! I think he doesn't mean to be obnoxious and he really has a good heart. I'm hoping that he learned some things by watching his past season, and he'll be able to tone down the bad spots and improve on the good.
Ozzy - He was sweet, right?
Yau-Man - Poor guy got totally duped last time by Dreamz. TOTALLY. He should have told him, "You can have the truck AFTER you take me to the final 3." But I love his heart.

My not so favorite "favorites:"

Didn't like Amanda - She acted like she was really surprised that people were upset by her lying to them and then voting them out. I was amazed that to the end, she seemed surprised that anyone would be upset by her back-stabbing. I realize that back-stabbing is part of the game. Just acknowledge that you did the stabbing, please.

Jonny Fairplay - I've seen this guy be sincerely nice sometimes, but otherwise he's sickening. I would love it if the other contestants would realize that if you don't feed the fire, it goes out. Just don't give the guy any attention when he's acting ridiculous.

So here's my fantasy scenario: James, Jonathan, Yau-Man and Cirie team up. Maybe they ask Ozzy or even Jonny Fairplay to join them. They can neutralize Fairplay for awhile if he's aligned with them. They have to be vigilant in watching for his defection, though. They vote off the cute, cocky, manipulating girls one by one. would appear I'm rooting for all the men, plus Cirie. Oh well...

Can't wait, y'all! See ya back here on February 8!

I love Survivor too. It's amazing how quickly I forget some of them from season to season. I don't recognize Ami at all. I like James, Ozzy & Yau-Man too.
