Holmes is probably pretty accurate in his rankings but I think there will be some attempted "cross-pollination" early on especially if one or more of the women think they can "play" a man into allying with them secretly if not overtly. And judging by the previews there are already some men who want to boot other men right away. I'm not sure how Tribal Council will work. If the immunity challenges pit everyone together regardless of gender then the men would have an advantage in the more physical challenges. It would seem more logical to have everyone do the same challenge at the same time but have them competing only against their own gender so there would be two winners and two booted off, one man, one woman, at Tribal Council....we'll see. At any rate we have another 13 weeks of fine entertainment ahead, and don't forget ! The Amazing Race starts soon with it's potentially higher psycho-sexual tension in the mix with Brenden and Rachel as one of the teams....more on that later.











The Many Twists of ‘Survivor: One World’


by Gordon Holmes | February 15, 2012 at 11:03 AM | Survivor, TV News






Greg Smith and Leif Manson (CBS)

Redemption Island has not been redeemed.

Former players have not been issued invitations.

“Survivor” the way classic fans like it has returned for the 24th
season. But, that doesn’t mean the producers don’t have a few twists up
their sleeves. So, before tonight’s festivities get under way, let’s
take a quick look at what Probst & Co. have in store for us…


The Twist: Two Teams on One Beach


How It Will Work: Both the Manono and Salani tribes will camp on the same beach.

It’s Kinda Like: “Survivor: Thailand” when the Chuay Gahn and Sook Jai tribes lived on the same beach for a few days before the merge.

How That Twist Worked Out: That was actually a bit
of a dud. The two tribes were already pretty solid in their alliances,
so there wasn’t much in the way of cross-tribe strategy after Shii Ann
was voted out.

How “One World” Is Different: The two tribes will be living on the same beach from day one.

How I Think It’ll Turn Out: The two tribes will have
access to each other before any deep-rooted alliances can take shape.
Also, there’s the possibility that the two sides could fight over
resources.

Pre-Game Twist Ranking? A ten out of ten. I love this idea. Here’s hoping it will help break up the rock-solid merge alliances of the past two seasons.

The Twist: Men vs. Women

How It Will Work: The tribes will be split up by gender. The MANono tribe will be all dudes, while the Salani (or SaLadies) will be all female.

It’s Kinda Like: “Survivor: The Amazon” and “Survivor: Vanuatu.”Actually, it’s exactly like “Survivor: The Amazon” and “Survivor: Vanuatu.”

How That Twist Worked Out: Meh. In both cases the male vs. female twist didn’t make it to the merge.

How “One World” Is Different: It isn’t.

How I Think It’ll Turn Out: I’m assuming the reason
this twist exists this seasons is so we can easily tell the tribes apart
when they’re running around the same beach. If that’s the case,
hopefully they’ll let the tribes stay intact until the merge.

Pre-Game Twist Ranking? If they shuffle the tribes
after four episodes? A three out of ten. If they let the tribes stay
intact until the merge? A seven out of ten.

The Twist: Cross-Tribe Immunity Idols

How It Will Work: If you find an immunity idol
around the campsite, you can’t use it for yourself. You have to give it
to a member of the other tribe. EDIT: The idol
situation hasn’t been made completely clear. There may be tribe-specific
idols. And, if you find your tribe’s idol, you’re free to use it.

It’s Kinda Like: “Survivor: China” when Fei Long member Todd Herzog gave his immunity idol to Zhan Hu’s James Clement.

How That Twist Worked Out: Ultimately, Clement left
the game holding two idols, so it didn’t have that much of an impact.
But, the move did help Herzog gain favor with the He-Man-esque
gravedigger.

How “One World” Is Different: Todd didn’t have to give up the idol. The One Worldians do.

How I Think It’ll Turn Out: There’s sure to be some
drama in picking the right person to grant the idol. I could also see
someone in trouble desperately trying to find out which member of the
rival tribe has the idol.

Pre-Game Twist Ranking? Hard to call this one. It could have huge pre-merge implications or it could be a dud. Let’s call it a five out of ten.

Survivor: One World” premieres, Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

That was a rather bizarre premiere even for Survivor. But first things first....we must determine some info about the helicopter that Jeff rode in on in the opening sequence. It's interesting that the contestants arrived by truck to their beach home rather than by boat which is the norm for most S. Pacific seasons. Anyway, Jeff swoops down on them in a Aerospatiale AS350B, registration number DQ-HMY. We know that DQ is the prefix for aircraft registered in Fiji, and with a little more research we learn that HMY is owned by the Island Hopper company and is rented to the Survivor production co. Further we learn that HMY spent some time in New Zealand with another company before returning to Fiji.

Why, you may ask, is it necessary to know this apparently unrelated info ? Because...a true Survivor fan knows E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G about the show. End of story.

So, returning to last night's events we see the bizarre case of poor Kourtney breaking her wrist in the first immunity challenge and having to be evacuated . An operation on her wrist will be necessary so she is out. The first time any contestant has left the first episode (keeping in mind that each episode covers 3 days) for reasons other than being booted at Tribal Council. There have been medical evacuations in other seasons but always later on. With the womens team losing the immunity challenge and already being one person down Jeff tells them at Tribal Council that no one else will be voted off that night.

But he does point out that their team is an unorganized, back biting mess and they had better straighten up if they expect to get far.

So we are in for an interesting season, not less for the men's team containing one gay guy (not always a requirement in their casting) and a midget (a first) who looks to be more physically competent than several of the other men.

The "Survivor: One World"
season premiere presented longtime fans of the veteran reality series
with a lot of firsts. In a brand new twist, all 18 competitors are
living on the same beach from the very beginning, divided into two
tribes based on gender. But that's not the only first: For the first
time in "Survivor" history, the first contestant to leave the game was
not voted out, but left due to a medical emergency. Kourtney Moon left
the island after a nasty wrist-break in the opening immunity challenge —
a challenge that the men subsequently won by default, by the way, after
they were given the choice to claim victory early or continue competing
against their Kourtney-less rivals.

Kourtney's medical evacuation and the short-lived immunity
challenge weren't the only sources of drama. From the first minute, the
male and female tribes — Manolo and Salani, respectively — made their
rivalry clear through theft, fire and harsh negotiations. There is no
love lost on the "One World" beach, even if there's plenty to love for
the viewers at home.

I would have liked for Chelsea to have at least gotten the $100K, I think this is the first time that the million winner also got the fan vote 100k but you have to hand it to Kim for her strategy especially considering what a mess the women were in early on and what she thought she had to work with.

Survivor: One World' winner crowned
May 14, 2012, 7:44 AM EST
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Survivor: One World"
should have probably just been called "Survivor: Kim's World."

Bing: Watch episodes and clips of
'Survivor'


Kim Spradlin not only won the CBS reality competition's $1 million grand
prize Sunday, the crafty 29-year-old bridal shop owner from San Antonio, Texas,
also brought the alliance that she helped form at the game's outset to the final
tribal council all while engineering the dismissal of each member of the show's
nine-person jury of former players.

"I strategized until I was blue in the face," said Spradlin.

The jury ultimately voted for Spradlin over her allies, 33-year-old high
school teacher Sabrina Thompson of New York and 26-year-old medical saleswoman
Chelsea Meissner of Charleston, S.C. Spradlin, Meissner and Thompson worked
together from the first day of the game, which originally featured two tribes
divided by sex living on the same beach in Samoa.

Photos: See all the castaways

"We were a mess at the beginning, and then we just pulled it together," said
Thompson, who nabbed two jury votes to Spradlin's seven. Spradlin also received
the most viewer votes, winning an additional $100,000 fan-favorite prize.

Spradlin secured her place among the final three contestants on the 24th
edition of "Survivor" by winning four individual immunity challenges, including
the final two physical competitions, which ousted 29-year-old career consultant
Christina Cha of Los Angeles and 25-year-old special education teacher Alicia
Rosa of Chicago from the 39-day contest.

At the end of the finale, "Survivor" host Jeff Probst announced that the
upcoming 25th season would be titled "Survivor: Philippines" and would feature
three tribes as well as three returning contestants that previously removed from
the game for medical concerns.
