THE RETURNING FAVORITES: YAU-MAN CHAN

AGE: 55

SEASON: Survivor: Fiji

YAU-MAN SAYS: ''Last time, I was able to play the weak old man under the radar before the merge. I definitely cannot do that [this time].''

JEFF PROBST SAYS: ''You can't do a favorites season without Yau-Man. He's sort of the Rudy of this season. He'll be the oldest guy and the most frail and probably be one of the most popular. Yau-Man's problem is going to be those things. He's so popular, everyone there knows that he's popular and well liked, and everybody knows what happened to him in Fiji. But I think Yau-Man's going to have to come out and play aggressive. I don't think he can play that same game of just chopping coconuts and being everyone's friend.''

Yep, him and James both. They need Yao for his smarts and some of his finer skills, and James for the brute strength. But once they are on for individual immunity they will be toast. If they're smart, James and Yao will get in an alliance. Bring on Cirie and a couple of the others and they're in good shape.

I absolutely loved Yau-man! He was the truest, nicest guy in Survivor history. I am shocked that he was voted out. I had hoped it would be that skinny chick....Eliza. Gosh, I hated her the first time around. Who picked these "favorites"?
