Survivor Premier Night

I can't even believe I'm doing this.

Big Brother ended less than 48 hours ago, and I actually spent the past couple hours getting a header and a few other things together for this blog. I was taking a drive around my island today, clocking out the mileage of some of my favorite bike routes, and thinking... thinking about putting my big girl pants on, stopping whining about how tired I am, biting the bullet and doing a blog for Survivor this year.

So.. Here it is. I love the show. Always have. And this season should be incredible. Now that we've built such an amazing community of dishers, I have very high hopes for this blog! :)

I know less than nothing about the current cast members, so I'll be learning along with the rest of your tonight during the season premiere at 8pm, or maybe I'll stop by the CBS site and do a little reading and video watching first...

I'll be bloggin' about it shortly after the premiere, once I get my thoughts together, and I hope to see you all back here then, and hear your reactions too.

All I do know is their names and what they look like. Based on that and that alone, I thought it would be fun to take a page from the Jenna-Dalton handbook and make a time capsule prediction as to the winner... Just for fun.

If you'd rather have a bit of info first, the link for the Official CBS Survivor Site is just to your left, in the sidebar, along with a couple of other useful Survivor links.

Please join me in the comment section here on the blog, and we can come back at the end and see how well-honed our powers of ultimate Survivor picking are! ;) If you don't have a google account and can't be bothered to make one, please make sure to include your name or screenname somewhere in your comment.

And just for giggles... lets do a quickie poll so we can see at a glance who, if anyone, the majority is leaning towards.

I have never watched survivor before. but because I love ya so much I'll give it a shot tonight (oyh my hubby is gonna kill me if I get addicted to another reality show.)

Oh and I picked Chicken...I like chicken, tastes good, and I liked Chicken George, and since I've never seen survivor I have no clue on anything about making a reasonable prediction :)

I love you guys. I couldn't get enough of bb8dish and you have really made my day by creating this blog too. I felt a little sadness when bb8 ended - like what am I going to do with myself now? Now I have you for survivor and I can make it through another workday!

I have already discovered our "Dani" of survivor, anyone want to take a guess as to who it is *LOL*

Luv ya Carolyn this is going to be fun!!

Anonymous grits207 said...

I voted for Eric. I don't know what it is about him but he just seems like somebody that will make it far in the game.

BTW it would be so cool if survivor was live like BB and had the live feeds! No harm in dreaming :p

6:01 PM  
Blogger Clementine said...

coachcher - Does "Dani" = Courtney?

OK, Dave seems arrogant, don't like him anymore.

So far, I like James (grave digger) and Frosti (the youngest).

6:07 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Coachcher, was it the one who freaked out after their tribe lost. I forget if her name was Pei-Gee or if it was another gal.

PS: I totally tried to get a photo to accompany my profile, but can't seem to do it right. If anyone can help, pls advise.

6:20 PM  
Blogger Cliff O'Neill said...

I voted for Jamie. Wasn't sure if it was a guy or a girl. But she's definitely a mo.

"I always vote the straight mo ticket."


"Yes. Eenie, meenie, minee, mo."

Ok, I listened to the first episode. Was busy doing my ebay stuff. The only thing that kept running through my mind is.....

This Chicken has to go.

I was hoping you were going to come around Carolyn! Thanks

I've been waiting for Survivor China to start since they mentioned it last season. I even watched BB8 this year. Found the BB8 Dish and when you said you were starting up here I decided to follow. The first show was awesome and I'm looking forward to Dishing with you all!

I pick James as the winner by the way, completely forgot that's what this post was for... got so caught up in the excitement of the moment I forgot.

Go James Go!

yeah, I am so glad that you are doing survivor now... love the show and can't wait to see how it plays out. James is so quiet, yet strong and athletic... he is one of my early favs. I am glad that CHicken is gone... he just wasn't like any of those other "old man hick" types that have been on the show before... he rubbed me the wrong way. Anyway, looking forward to seeing Courtney leave the show too. Spoiled brats always have to be blonde don't they? Seems like they are anyway, from BB to survivor.. lmao With Jen from BB being an exception. And I'm not talking about Jessica either..;)

Not sure about the "store," but Hey! Nice ta see ya again!

I am still despondent about the outcome of the Show That Shall Not Speak Its Name and am slowly dying of hunger from never being able to eat turkey burgers again.

I think survivor wants frosty to win and they are going to taylor all of the competitions towards climcing and scalling walls and such.
