PostSubject: Survivor 29: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water    Mon Sep 08, 2014 10:57 pm

There were supposed to be 10 pairs of loved ones competing on this season’s Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water (which debuts Sept. 24 on CBS). But then, just days before filming began in Nicaragua, one of the couples was forced to bow out after a last minute-medical check turned up something that gave the Survivor medics pause. The same thing actually happened during the last Blood vs. Water season when RC Saint-Amour and her father had to drop out while on location due to medical reasons involving the dad. In that instance, Candice and John Cody were flown in at the last minute to replace them. (They arrived in the Philippines less than 24 hours before filming began.)
No such luck this time around with replacements, so producers had to adjust the game from 20 players down to 18, which also created an imbalance in the amount of men and women playing. I sat down with Survivor host Jeff Probst on location on day one of the game, where he told me all about the last minute change. “We started this with 10 pairs and it does happen,” says Probst. “It’s rare, but it sometimes happens that for different reasons somebody is pulled from the game. We lost a pair of women, so the way it works out is there are more men than women. That’s just the game. We don’t like it that way, but that’s the way it’s going to start…. It changes your show. It changes your Tribal Council because there are two less people to get rid of.”

But, wait — if we’re down to only 18 players, does that mean we may get a final two again instead of a final three? Not necessarily, cautions the host. “Yeah, it’s possible,’ he says of the chance of a final two. “It depends what happens over the next 39 days. As it is right now — no. But if somebody were to be evacuated or to quit, now we’re getting to a small amount of numbers in order to finish our show.”

Probst and I have  good-naturedly sparred over the merits of a final three vs. final two — I am a fan of the latter — for years, and the host once again shared why he prefers the former. “I don’t think the final three is better than the final two,” he says. “But I do think the final three gives you a better chance of somebody likeable or an interesting dynamic happening. Case in point: last season had Woo chosen Kass, you have a Kass-Woo final. No offense to those guys, it’s not as interesting as a Tony-Woo final. To me, it only proves my point more as to why a final three goes into play.” “

You should, it's the same concept just in a house instead of an island

I do enjoy the blood vs water ones. But I keep the same opinion as last year- you know going in that you may have to sacrifice your loved one in irder to succeed . Jeremy was sweet though when he almost cried about Val going to exile.


And finally someone who showed up having practiced making fire. I know I would be studying that stuff if I was going to play. You see how hard it is when you're missing skills like that.

Exactly, I would be able to make fire before coming out, and I would practice making shelter as well and research the best ones to make

hmmm, a negotiation occurs that makes Jeff happy? that ought to be good - he gets a little evil sometimes

someone looks like they quit too - unless that's part of the negotiation - someone pulling a Rupert.

I think someone will quit, but probably not until later in the season
