    The official cast list is out:

    http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/


    Premiere is February 13th. That's the day after Mardi Gras. If I'm over my five day food/drink binge, I plan on tuning in as I'm interested in seeing this version of "fans vs favs". And I use "favs" very :rolleyes: with Brandon Hantz in the mix!

    Here's a direct link - http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/cast/

    Have they given any explanation for why on earth they think someone who was voted out FIRST in their season can be called a favourite? And Corinne was definitely a villain, not a favourite. I'm sure Philip's a decent man, but he got WAY too much airtime first time around so I hope he's out early. Brenda, Erik, Andrea sorry but I barely remember you, and I'm a Survivor fan - you can't be among my favourites when I don't remember you :p As for Brandon and Dawn, do they deserve a second shot? Neither's "journey" was cut short - in fact in their season it was specifically what they went through emotionally that was their story, so why bring them back? Although I guess Dawn can qualify as a favourite.

    I'll give you Cochran and Malcolm though - I'd like to see more of them as both are good players. I wonder if Cochran will go far this time given that everyone knows that he's smart and knows the game, and I can see a few of them wanting to align with him because of that. Malcolm is worth keeping just for the :swoon: of course, and I'm kinda looking forward to seeing what Corinne brings this time.

    And one of the "favs" thinks she may get a showmance out of it? pardon me while I puke (still needing a puking icon) so will go with :rolleyes: instead.

    Haven't seen one why Francesca is back as a "favorite" when she lasted one episode the first time around. Maybe they were hoping she'd kill Philip this time!?!

    I would consider Andrea, Erik, Dawn, Malcolm and Cochran "favs". The others, not so much.

    Of course I'll be watching but I'm not excited for any of these people to be returning at all. This is like a D-list version of Survivor "favorites".

    Malcolm's Personal Claim to Fame: "Once I spent over a month with Abi-Maria Gomes, and I'm still considered legally sane by the state of California." :lol:

    This is the idiot Erik who gave away immunity, right?

    Meh

    But I felt the same way about the Micronesia FvF choices and it turned out to be one of the best seasons in the series, so I'll be optimistic for this one.

    At least we get Malcolm back.

    Another reason to love Malcolm.

    I think the definition of 'Fav' is that they are the producers favorites, not anyone in the general population.

    And PeterG - not good at doing multiple quotes - yes it must be that Colby dropped out last minute ROTFLMAO

    Just watched the video - Cochran - I bring nothing to the table. Cochran for the win! (or Malcolm).
    Just not Brandon, Corinne, or Phillip

    If Jesus loves me, Phillip will have new underwear and get voted off early. :)

    :shuffle: I've watched every season of Survivor since 7 episodes into the first season (the media hype finally pulled me in), but honestly I have no idea who most of these people are. Bad fan. :p

    So who is planning on watching tonight?! I guess I'll tune in to see what craziness Philip brings this time around. Hopefully some of the newbies will interesting as I can honestly say there isn't one "favorite" I'm interested in seeing again.

    she's one of the few returnees that I'm interested in :shuffle:

    I've got a meeting tonight, so i'll be watching after. Usually CBS posts the eps right away, so I might even get to watch tonight, but it depends on what time I get home (can't interfere with Nashville, doncha know ;) )

    I am not a prude or very conservative, but Phillip in the underwear is too much.

    Great first elimination. Are we spoiled here? I think so, but don't want to get blasted.

    I didn't watch Cochrane's first season but I really like him.

    Shame Malcolm couldn't keep the lead in the immunity challenge. I guess it will be him vs Gaynord (or what ever his name is) in the early challenges.

    And how stupid were the two fans who coupled up the first night?

    Overall a great opening episode.
