    Yeah this season is very, very spoiled, especially since it filmed months ago. Same with Season 26 which is also done filming and won't air till 2013. Seems like our friends in the Philippines that had access to the set/cast were able to sniff out lots of spoilers.

    That's annoying - after the Amazon the producers got better about it, but sounds like they didn't even bother this time. Hate the long lead time - way too much time for things to get out. Can't imagine what it's like for the players trying to keep secrets from their friends and families, and not knowing who won. Although I expect with such a long lead time, they'll figure it out as they talk with other players.

    I wouldn't even call her a celebrity, it's not like she has a show on TV now. She just wants to play the game like the ex NFL player. I hope she does well.

    I'm also happy they are allowing the returning players. It's one thing to have the game beat you and be voted out; it's quite another to have to leave for medical reasons. I don't have a problem with letting Penner try again.

    I love that Lisa has been cast. I just hope she doesn't hate on the gays.

    I might actually watch for the first time in a LONG time. Actually, I think the last time I watched was Australia when the guy got burned. He is coming back so it seems I am being called to this season. I am a HUGE Facts of Life fan so I have to tune in, even if Lisa is a uber-Christian now who would probably drive me crazy in real life.

    I'm hearing a lot of that since the cast announcements. I think Lisa is drawing people in, and Skupin will bring back some lapsed viewers.

    I think the return of well known players like Boston Rob, Coach, Ozzy, Russell etc was divisive - some people loved, some hated it. These three this season bring far few objections - especially as most only vaguely remember who they are.

    From the sound of some of the bios, that doesn't make her special in this cast.

    Or in any cast - in recent years, prayer circles on the beach have become commonplace on Survivor.

    So two celebs whom one is a born again Christian and one who is livid when he is around gays, both have gay players on their tribes.

    Survivor has done it again!

    I hope that Survivor doesn't cast any more of those "straight-acting" gays. For once, I hope they cast a bitchy, flaming stereotype. Just to mix things up once and for all!

    Yeah, and that turned out well. Oof!

    Just curious, Peter, who are the "straight-acting" gays that you're referring to?

    I thought Rogue was classifying Colton as a bitchy, flaming stereotype :shuffle:.

    Haven't we already seen a flaming stereotype matched with a conservative--Brandon and Frank on Survivor: Africa?

    To this day, whenever someone says something about a "sterotypical gay man," I get a mental image of Brandon with the bow and arrow.:lol:

    I'm okay now. With the arms of Hab wrapped around me, the bitchy flaming stereotypical queen in me goes back into hiding.

    Maybe Carson should Survivor - he was great on DWTS. That would be pretty awesome (however, can't see that ever happening :lol:)
