Survivor 28: Cagayan (Brawn vs Brains vs Beauty) discussion thread


Recommended Posts


The spring edition of SURVIVOR, filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines, will be themed "Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty."

The groupings of these tribes, each comprised of six castaways, reflect the distinguishing qualities that people bring to the game and test whether there is any truth to the pre-conceived notion that that certain characteristics will help you win the game of SURVIVOR. All castaways will compete to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor.

The season's cast includes a high-stakes poker player, an attorney, an ex-NFL cheerleader, a nuclear engineer, the President of the Miami Marlins and a former NBA All-Star. Will the Brains use their expertise solving puzzles to outsmart the others? Will Brawn dominate all the challenges given their physical attributes? Or will Beauty use their looks to master the social game?

The battle unfolds when these three tribes compete on SURVIVOR!

For those who dislike seeing returning players, this cast should satisfy, as there are no familiar faces.

They are all rather good looking and in fact the beauties are less so than some others in the two other categories. No one looks like they are in their forties. I watch more in the hopes that someone will figure out how to trap some of the wild life or have done some research and learned what roots and herbs to dig up...so far that has never happened although someone did eat a rat. No one has offended the PETA sensibiities and eaten a monkey yet.

Well, it's an all NEW cast, which is BEYOND WONDERFUL and is a huge plus!!!

2nd Plus is bye-bye Redemption Island!

Beyond that, I HATE the special idol. It's too much a "safety net" dumped on the

Survivor production favorite (this season, Tony...the new Boston Rob).

If they are going to have it, it should only be able to

be used in the first half of the game where more people have a shot at it,

and after that should be an "idle idol" and a souvinour unless played.

Survivor needs to either shake it up or give it up. They should just openly probably cast

4 people who are serious about playing the game and then go to SAG and get

4 hot girls and 4 hot guys, give them $100 a week to just run around the beach acting stupid,

flashing their muscles, fake tans and crest whitestripe (or whatever product integration of the season is)

smiles at each other and annoy the crap out of the 4 who really came to play the game,

and eliminate the deception that it's not really what we have now!
