Survivors pick their ‘Survivor’ all-stars

“Survivor” will mark its 20th season with something special as it once again unites former players, this time as “Heroes vs. Villains.”
Before CBS announces the lineup next week, we asked former Survivors whether they see themselves as a hero or villain, who other than themselves they’d like to see play this time around and is it easier to win as a hero or villain.
There’s no question that fan-favorite Rupert Boneham (“Survivor: Pearl Islands”) is a hero both on and off the show, so it’s no surprise that he has a few favorites that are also heroes.
“Rudy Boesch (‘Survivor: Borneo’), toughest old man I’ve ever met in my life, Big Tom (‘Survivor: Africa’) – the Goat Man – maybe this time he would believe me instead of Boston Rob and Tina Wesson (Winner – ‘Survivor: The Australian Outback’). You have to have the hot girl,” said Boneham.
Boesch castmate and original sole Survivor Richard Hatch is a popular villain choice.
“I know I’m asking for a lot, but I’d love to see Richard Hatch back on Survivor,” said Rob Cesternino (“Survivor: Amazon”). “If it were up to me, I think you put Richard Hatch out there every season. I think you make him like the “free space” on the Bingo card, he’s just a given. Some years they vote him off first, some years they keep him around. How could that not be intriguing every time?” he said.

Now that you’ve read what our experts think, it’s your turn to weigh in. Who would you like to see on Heroes vs. Villains and who do you think has a better chance to win?
Hey guys! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a safe and Happy New Years.
CBS has not given out the official cast list for the next season of Survivor 2010 but it has been leaked on the internet so I am going to share it with all of you who do not already know. It is also being filmed in Samoa and the heroes tribal color is blue and the villains is red. The merged color is black. There is no exile island for this season and there will be no tribal swap. There will be a double boot episode and another interesting piece of information is that there will be two idols played in one tribal council.
The heroes tribe consists of Amanda Kimmel, Candice Woodcock, Cirie Fields, Colby Donaldson, James Clement, JT Thomas, Rupert Boneham, Sugar Smith, Stephanie LaGrossa, and Tom Westman.
The villains are as follows: Courtney Yates, Coach Wade, Danielle DiLorenzo, Jerri Manthey, Parvati Shallow, Randy Bailey, Rob Mariano, Russell Hantz, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Tyson Apostol
Richard Hatch, the 1st season winner will not be appearing on the show due to legal troubles. When he asked a judge to let him travel to Samoa to be on the show, he was turned down. Sham also reportedly turned down an opportunity to be on the show.
The air date is February 11, 2010 for two hours. Did the producers miss someone that you wanted to see return?
There has been much talk on the internet today about who should really have won the title of Sole Survivor on Survivor Samoa and for once I am in total agreement with the masses that Russell is the only one who deserved that crown.
I am the type of person who is all about game play. I don’t want anyone riding my coattails and for sure I don’t want to ride theirs. This year that is all to be found on reality tv. It is a shame that what was once considered the mack daddy of all reality shows has fallen into the same path of destruction as all the others.
You can argue and say riding coattails is a strategy but is it really? I don’t think so. There is no competitive spirit involved in dragging behind another stronger player. I would personally be embarrassed if I won a game in that fashion but then again, I love to compete and I want to win because I did well and not because someone else took pity on me and that is what the jury members did in the case of Natalie. You all know it as well as I do.
There is no one on that panel who honestly in their hearts believed Nat to be the better player. They just couldn’t stand the fact that Russell beat them and did it so well and none of them ever saw it coming. It was an amazing thing to watch all season.
I’m going to remind all of you that at the beginning of the season we all picked the person we thought would do the best and the least and I said Laura would be among the first to go and I was wrong. She actually controlled the feelings and thoughts of the women for Galu except Sham.
My person to win was Russell based sole on the fact that he owned an oil company and I work in that industry and I never turned back on him. I did think it was crappy to burn Jaison’s socks and wreak havoc on his own tribe but you know what? He had a purpose and a strategy and he never waivered from it. He was a phenomenal player and it was an absolute pleasure to watch him from week to week because let’s face it, without him, the season would have sucked.
What do you think? Is Russell the ultimate sole survivor?
Tonight was the big Survivor Samoa finale episode and here are the results!
The first immunity challenge is won by Brett the only member from the original Galu tribe and this is his 3rd win for immunity in a row.
The final four of Foa Foa will now be split up and Jaison is sent to the jury.
The second immunity challenge comes down to Russell and Brett and Russ wins his first immunity necklace and Brett is sent to the jury.
The final 3 are Mick, Natalie and Russ and they are questioned by the jury members.
Natalie wins Survivor Samoa after an amazing speech by Erik and Russell came in second. Of course, Russ should have won as he is one of the best players ever.
Russell does win the $100,000 Viewers’ Choice prize though.
