I'm a HUGE Survivor fan!! I go through withdrawals when it's in between seasons.
I haven't noticed more ads for this season, but could be because I don't watch much TV and therefore don't see any commercials.
I think it's great the way their doing it this season .... splitting them up the way they are. It's different ...... it's gutsy ...... and it'll be interesting to watch!!
You can bet the tribes won't be split long though, I give it 3 weeks max. They never keep the tribes split up long before they merge into 2 tribes.
Jeff Probst said that like 80% of the applicants are white, therefore in past seasons the majority of the contestants have been white. Think about it ..... this season there are only 5 white people. There are most minorities this season than ever before. I think that's great.
I agree they might not be the best matched up. I guess they're pretty limited on the number of people that apply though ...... if 20% are minorities, they have those 20% to pick from, for each of the other 3 groups? But then again, the tribes don't ever seem to be fairly matched up.
I think it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. I LOVE this show ...... I'm so glad it's back!!
