    I agree 100 % with ( RG ), i have been a big fan of Survivor since the very beginning,
    but I could sure do without the contestants with such a negative personality as Philip
    and Brandon, I think it is a disgrace to the other contestants that must put up with so
    much stupidity until they can form enough courage to vote these idiots off.

    My one wish is for survivor not to allow Phillip to run around in his underwear it is discussing but then again it does match his personality.

    I was pretty happy about having another FvF, but this seems to be lacking a little starpower. Cochran, Malcolm, Dawn, Brenda, ok. But seriously, Francesca? Last-place finisher in her only participation? Corinne? Who remembers who that is?

    And did we really needed Brandon and Philip back? These guys almost made their seasons unwatchable because of how cringingly annoying they were.
