ETA: I guess congrats to the newly engaged Memphis and Christmas.
Wait,what? I'm jut now getting ready for BB, and reading what ya'll have uncovered so far. Then I see Memphis and Christmas are engaged. That makes them Chrisphis. say the ph as ph not f. or just a p. I really hope we do not see either of them this season. fresh faces, people. Arghhhh.
It's a mixture of "fans, superfans and people not as familiar with the game" which means most of them will have only watched a recent season or two in sequester.
The teams thing is their latest attempt to prevent a super-alliance from being formed and dominating the season, which is what killed most of the last several seasons. We'll see if it works, but you can't change human nature.
I hate teams. It just ends up being a popularity contest.
And the last few seasons weren't? I say give it a chance. It's worked for Survivor for quite a few years. It couldn't be any worse than the last few years. If it gets rid of the bullying way of playing, then good. I'm just glad there are no former contestants. They ruin every season they're in.
There's always another option. You just have to find it.
I normally think the twists are silly, but this one seems kinda cool as long as it's just for the one week. I don't recall it ever being done before and it would definitely throw the others for a loop as long as production doesn't get too involved in it.
It does sound like a decent twist but when do TPTB ever restrain themselves from getting involved?
