    Rumor has it that the three returning players are

    Spoiler



    And wow, I thought Lisa Whelchel was just a weird Internet rumor! Going to be hard to resist this one just to see how Blair fares.

    I loved a tweet from Reality Steve asking why Tootie and Natalie aren't on!

    Worst casting ever of a famous person.

    As a SF Giants fan, I sure know who he is. He's a former NL MVP and gigantic a-hole. So perfect for Survivor.

    Why? From the article she is a big fan.

    I know pretty much nothing about her myself.

    I'm sorry but that is the most awesome thing I have ever heard... Blair on Survivor? I don't care if she's a super crazy fanatical Christian now, or whatever... just the pure ridiculous WTFness of it all makes it worth it. The returning players, on the other hand... yuck. NO MORE.

    Well I'm in. I don't have a problem with Lisa or the baseball player - they bring them in as regular players, not so-called celebrities/all-stars/coaches/twists (I'm looking at you Allison Grodner!), and I'm good with that. As always, it's both an advantage and disadvantage for those who are well-known, and fun to see how it plays out.

    Don't mind the returning players because they weren't voted out - they were forced out for medical reasons

    Blair looks good. But I think any well-known (or half well-known) person coming into the game will have an automatic bull's eye on her back. When Jimmy Johnson was on the show, some people immediately resented him and wanted him out simply because he was Jimmy Johnson.

    True, but it goes both ways - some wanted Jimmy there because they idolized him, and maybe wanted to experience his coaching skills first hand.

    For Lisa, as she said there will be the older crowd who recognizes Blair, but the cast usually includes a lot of younger people who likely won't be impressed. The fact (!) that she's 49 might make her appear less threatening physically too, so that might also work in her favour.

    Not sure how big the baseball player is, but the assumption might be that he's rich and doesn't need the money, and views might be mixed on how well-off a former child star from the 80s might be.

    That interview with Lisa was great. It looks like she has the social skills to go far. She said she's watched the show since episode one, so I'm hoping she will be able to manoeuver the game play to her advantage. And she seems relaxed and not at all hot-headed, which will also benefit her. Go Blair!!!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    She seems to have a certain humbleness about her too, which could surprise those expecting her to be Blair.
