Names flash across the screen: Sandra, Ozzy, Malcolm, Cirie, Tai, Michaela, Tony, & JT. Hmm, that’s quite a mix of Survivor castaways there from the full cast list of 20 players. Are these our players to watch out for this season?
We get an expansion again on the “Game Changers” title here as the voice-over informs us these are the most “risk taking, groundbreaking players of all time” adding on to Jeff Probst’s explanation of “bold moves.” There’s a flashback to Ciera threatening to draw rocks at Tribal, Tony doing his bush-hiding ways by the watering hole, and Cirie voting out Erik. Good times.
Those aren’t the only big players in the season but I think it is a wide net to cast when we see Michaela and Tai in there with them. Michaela hinted at the potential for big moves but she didn’t get much of a chance last season. Fingers crossed that she’ll be sticking around to make that happen this season. Then for Tai, he was a fun castaway and he did have that moment of going against the guys in his alliance to further his own game. Tai will need to balance the trust issues others may see in him, especially with his close ally Caleb Reynolds being on the other tribe.
We’re just a few weeks away from Season 34 of Survivor 2017 as these big names return “to rewrite the playbook again.” No pressure, guys! So who is your early fav for the season? Share your expectations below for Game Changes and who you think has the most potential to wow us.
