I saw it on DVR yesterday. Kim is from this area, and her dad coaches football at one of the area high schools. I was also happy with the win.

What the heck was Colton's problem? It also sounds like he will be back on the next show.

I agree,and the guy who burned his hands too, maybe back. It looks like the setting will be more brutal than usual. I think the bunch of ladies was prety ho hum, but,Kim was the right winner.

Trip,

Speaking of brutal. Does it seem like conditions have changed on the show? Do you notice they seem cleaner, stronger. Remember when it first started, and all they had was rice?

Luanne, you are right...and no animals coming uo close and personal like in Africa. There is no question, most waste away before our eyes, but, things were tougher, back in the day.

From the threads I have read on the Survivor fan page Colton IS NOT one of the past contestants coming back. The three names were listed but none of them rang a bell. I'll see if I can find out which ones they were. Kim did play a great game, but I had wanted to see Chelsea win. But, I wasn't that disappointed either.

Russell Swan - he was the black guy that passed out during one of the challenges.

Jonathan Penner - punctured a hole in his leg during one of the challenges and it got infected. Jonathan is also an actor.

Michael Skupin - he was the one that fell in the fire and burned his hands.

Some sites are also reporting the an Angelia Layton (a model) will be back. I don't remember her at all.

No Colton!!

I made the same observation/statement about the last few seasons. It doesn't seem like they are making things as "hard" as they used to be. People don't seem to be as "hungry", bug bitten and suffering from exposure. I also wonder how they keep their teeth so "white".

I know there was a period where Survivor was getting some bad press because they were "recruiting" the contestants from casting companies, MySpace and other venues and not using the entries submitted. They had more "pretty people".

There were a few times in the last couple of years that I believed they played up "sexual appeal" of the female and maybe the male survivors for ratings. The "Slide Challenge" of this last year, where the contestants oiled themselves up and did a type of slip and slide was a little overboard.

Take care,
Mike
