Malcolm is the most recent returnee this season on Survivor 2013 and with the taste of defeat fresh on his lips he’s ready to get back in the game and do it right this time.
He does consider it a disadvantage that he is only castaway to return from last season of Survivor while there are several other “pairs” of “Favorites” who already have relationships with the other players. Of course that didn’t work out so great for Francesca so maybe Malcolm will convert that to an advantage.
Watch the video below to find out what Malcolm thinks of his fellow “Favorites” on Survivor 2013 and which castaway pulled him aside on the first day and suggested they team up and “run this game.” One returning player that is already on Malcolm’s “watch list” is Cochran for his inability to contribute and more dangerously, his lack of loyalty in the game. It’ll be interesting to see how Malcolm’s take on each player changes through the season.
Do you think Malcolm has what it takes to go all the way this season or will he lose out again?
Francesca became the first person to be voted off Survivor 2013 Caramoan, making this the second time she was the first to have her torch snuffed.
A lot of people were surprised to see a favorite over a fan be the first to go, but that’s just how it goes.
During her exit interview the day after her elimination, Francesca said she had a lot of fun on the show and that she’s grateful to have gotten the chance to do it twice. But she doesn’t think we’ll be seeing her again. She’s also kind of bummed that she trusted people she shouldn’t have.
“It is just a game, but it’s definitely different coming out here a second time,” Francesca said. “It definitely hurt me that I was friends with some of the people I was playing with. It made me trust them when I shouldn’t have trusted them. In Survivor, nothing is for certain.”
“I was completely honored to be back,” she added. After the way the first time played out, she thought she was more prepared and certainly wouldn’t be repeating it.
“I think this is the last you’ll see of me,” she said with a laugh.
Survivor 2013 Camaroan kicked off Wednesday night as super fans came face to face with fan favorites for a battle of show experts.
The show opened on a brief intro of the newbies and a full recount of the returning players during their original seasons. Then we get into the real begging of the season. The new castaways arrive on the island and are greeted by Jeff Probst. They can immediately see there are two tribe designations.
Jeff wastes no time telling them they’ll be playing against some of their past favorite players. And they returning players show up in helicopters. One by one they’re greeted by the favorites. Jeff then tosses the buffs and sends them right into the first challenge. They’re playing for fire and 20 pounds of beans.
The favorites easily win the first challenge and Malcolm is the first player to lose his shorts. If you’re keeping track this season.
Tonight on Survivor 2013 we’re about to get the Caramoan season started with the premiere episode of the new ‘Fans vs. Favorites.’ It’ll be a long 90-minute episode launching the pursuit of the next Sole Survivor. Will it be a returning, albeit questionable “favorite,” or a brand new “fan” castaway? Time to find out which side can make the first cut.
I’ll be live blogging tonight’s Survivor results of the premiere so stick close by and comment below throughout the show!
It doesn’t take long to hit the first challenge of the night. Minutes after arriving on the beach and getting their first look at their competition host Jeff Probst puts them to task. It’s a one-on-one challenge, well it’s one woman and one man from each team at a time, where the castaways have to retrieve a buoy and be the first to bring it back.
Round 1 goes to the Fans, but the Favorites make it up quick in round 2 as it turns in to a dogpile to the end. During round 3 Shamar gets noticed by Jeff when he yells for his teammate to “break her wrist” though he tries to back pedal and claim he meant “break her hold.” Favs get round 3 and round 4.
Round 5 could end the challenge and give Favs the reward of fire if they can keep their streak alive. In perhaps the most brutal and bottom baring round the Favs take it. The Fans are starting out the Caramoan season in the cold.
If you’re just getting to know the cast and their tribes then check our our gallery for the Survivor 2013 cast. As for the tribes, the Favs are “Bikal” and the Fans are “Gota.”
Survivor 2013 arrives tonight on CBS with the premiere of Caramoan featuring “Fans Vs. Favorites” and what would any season before without a continuous flow of Survivor spoilers? Of course these sneak peeks come from CBS themselves, but we’ll take it.
In the first week of Caramoan the castaways will compete in a competition called “It’s A Long Way To The Top.” They’ll have to run, in pairs, to the first, second, third, and fourth levels of a giant structure (geez, that must have taken forever to build!) where they’ll throw crates over the railing. The last pair on each team will race out, collect the bags from inside the destroyed crates, and then lob them in to six holes. First team to finish wins the race.
This competition will either be for immunity or luxury as there’s another water-based battle featured in the pictures released by CBS. I’m guessing it’s for immunity considering the complexity of the setup. What do you think?
