So, it seems like it's only been a few weeks since Survivor: Cook Islands ended with the Yuhl and Ozzy showdown. This Thursday, a new installment kicks off. The setting? The beautiful land of Fiji. (The taping may have gotten a little frenzied as the Asian island nation experienced a military coup while the season was being taped.)
You've probably seen the hype for this season. Survivor: Fiji is being billed as a battle of the "haves vs. the have nots." This seems to be a recurring theme for Mark Burnett. It's also playing out on his NBC Donald Trump franchise, "The Apprentice. On that show, one team sleeps in a mansion. The losing team sleeps in a tent. On Survivor, everyone will work together to build a very nice camp, then the team splits with the winning team staying and the losing team going to a empty beach to start over. I haven't heard anything about the details of food. Do the "haves" get regular meals? That would be perhaps too big of an advantage.
You can get a preview of the contestants for this season at cbs.com. Of course, there's the usual batch of 20-somethigns that will look good in swimsuits. There's a few odd ones. One guy is homeless. Another person is a middle-aged trainer for beauty pageant contestants. I didn't even know there was such a job?
Who's going to be watching?
