Cast announced

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/?ttag=tv;survivor

And there are two returning players that are unknown right now.

The spoiler which said that nutcase Carrie Prejean of Miss California USA fame wasn't true. Sigh...was hoping the spoiler on who's going to return wasn't true either.

Rob and Russell

A new season deserves a new thread.

I might be in the minority but the return of Rob and Russel makes me very happy. I love the bad guys. When will it be offically announced?

I'm so glad for a new season. I am a true fan, but had to quit watching last season, it was such a disappointment. It's the only season I've missed. I don't even know who won. Onward to better things!!!

The sheer amount of contestants from California is disgusting. :blah: Some geographic diversity would be nice!!

ETA: I hope Rob beats Russell's ass into the ground. Actually, I'd like the NEW contestants to wallop them both. Not a fan of them returning.

Can't wait. Cast seems young.
I am so amused that Russel is their least favorite. I never wanted Russel to win, but he is so entertaining and he played the game. I am still mad at him for ousting Boston Rob, but I don't mind he is playing again.
To me the least favorite should be someone like Kelly Purple, who did nothing and quit.

A lot of people move here, so I wouldn't say that they are 'from' here. Survivor would serve themselves better if they told us where they were from NOT where they live. I grew up in Pennsylvania, but live in California... so would that make it irritating if I got on the show? I do wish that they would cast REAL people, however, and not people who already have ties to the entertainment industry (or other reality whores).

When I get casted, I want it to be about the experience of the game. Once the game is over, I will go back to my life. I don't need to do public speaking engagements, etc. To play the game would be reward enough.

Wow, another contestant from near where I grew up. Big Tom was from about 20 minutes away from where I grew up. Ralph is from the next town over from where my parents live.

I think what really gets my panties in a wad about the issue is how lazy the casting department is. What's the point in applying anymore when you have a better chance of being selected for the show in clubs and bars in the Southern California area? So in that sense, yes, it is irritating to me... but then again I have a degree in geography and I'd love to see people from all over the country be mixed in. There was one past season where there were like 7 contestants living in LA alone. I read an interview with someone else that said they automatically felt left out and at a disadvantage because those players would talk about their favorite restaurants, salons, and hang-outs with each other.

Well the worst kept secret in Survivor-land is out, Russell & Boston Rob are back for another season:

Love me some Boston Rob so I might tune in to watch this season. Have taken the last 3 off so the show should be "fresh" again. Well as fresh as it can be for having them back once again. I am just glad its not Rupert and Russell!! And I am interested in seeing how Redemption Island plays out.

"Having never been awarded the title of Sole Survivor, Hantz and Mariano return to compete for the $1 million prize and one last shot at redemption,"

Don't tease me like this, CBS. We all know that you will bring them back if you can.

:lol:

If they could, they'd have Boston Rob play Survivor every season. Not sure about Russell but Rob is beloved by both Probst and Burnett. And since this is his SEVENTH CBS show, I guess the suits at CBS love him too.

That's pretty incredible that a construction worker from Boston has been able to parlay an entire career out of CBS. And gotten a wife and two daughters out of it too!

His on-screen caption should read "Professional Survivor player" as his occupation.

Itīll only be a good idea if Boston Rob outwits, outplays and outlasts Russell.
