All I have to say is that I have NO idea how I would be after I left any reality show...winner or first out. Well, I do know I would cry my eyes out no matter what...which leads me to have some empathy for all of them.

Even 8 months later and then watching it fresh, feelings are stirred up, I imagine.

I am surprised. I could not put me through this.
But, if I ever did I would go in expecting the others to do whatever they could to win. If I found someone I could be friends with while there , great. But, I would never let my guard all the way down. I f I did and it came back to bite me, that would be on me.
If I met someone I wanted to be friends with after, no one would be more surprised than me. I think I would expect to be more like Jordan, "nice to have met you, thanks for the money and the boyfriend, have a good life but bye"

this being hurt, mad or feeling betrayed surprises me, everytime.

I can't stand Rob but he deserved the win. He completely controlled his "room temperature IQ" tribe throughout the game and won key immunity challenges. That was the final three that Rob wanted from day three (for obvious reasons) and they handed it to him on a silver platter. I didn't watch the reunion part (Vancouver/San Jose game) so what did Russell say? That his tribe wouldn't have been decimated if they'd kept him?

I agree that much of the current bitterness of some comes from having just watched the season and having it thrown in their faces, week after week, what fools they were. It must have been hard to watch.

I'm sorry they're bringing back redemption island. It takes up too much time each episode. I hope they tweak it a bit ... maybe have a RI challenge after three or four have been voted out and the winner gets back in the game immediately or something. (with a one week immunity?) I also think they should bring back the member swap. I think if they'd done that, the outcome might have been a bit different.
I'm also not a fan of recycled players unless it's an all-star season ... the veterans have a big advantage right out of the box. The only recycled players I'd like to see again (outside of an all-star season) are Janelle and Will.

Also, didn't Probst date Julie Berry from Survivor Vanuatu for years? Maybe they still are a couple?
Probst sure lucked into a money pit when he agreed to host the first Survivor back in 2000. Every aspiring TV host's dream I guess.

They broke up a few years ago.

Took me over an hour of reading to catch up here today. I missed the finale last night. First time ever and, of course, it had to be when one of my favorites wins right? I was honestly very surprised Rob won. I know he deserved the win but for some reason I thought we'd determined he didn't win from spoilers. I can't wait to watch the finale later tonight.

As far as being bitter. I agree with those who say watching it brings back a lot for these players as they see it right in front of them and see their edit it must really piss a lot of them off. I think in time most get over it. There's always at least one player that can't though.

Congrats to Rob. He deserved the win. Everybody else played like idiots. Sucks to be them!

I don't believe anyone was jealous of Natalie for being a finalist. The only reason she made the finale and they did not is because she was a zero threat to Rob's end game -- why would anyone be jealous of that?


Grant had a F3 deal with Rob. Ash had a F3 deal with Rob. Matt had a F3 deal with Rob. Even Dre, after she was betrayed in Ep2, actually thought she had a new F3 deal with Rob.

All were betrayed by Rob. And all were jealous that some sweet naive 19 year old girl, whom they felt was undeserving, made it to the endgame without being voted out.


It's VERY telling that a 19 year old can get over it and realize it's just a game, when a 30 year old ex-football player is STILL pouting and petulant.

Yes. Rob and Phil got the most screen time but Nat had a few questions too.

It just goes to show you that everyone matures at different ages. Some sadly never grow up.

I am so late at posting, but I was so very happy for Rob, he really did deserve the win.

Grant....really confused me, what a baby. Julie disappointed me at tribal council...

I had such a great weekend, my NASCAR guys completely dominated the weekend races (Carl Edwards on Sat and Matt Kennseth on Sun...with the Mark Martin 2nd) and then....Rob WINS! I woke up Monday and had to make sure it all really happened.

As for next season being Redemption Island #2, complete with returning players, no matter how much I do not like RI , I will watch. Hopefully they will tweek things to keep it fresh,and not do a repeat.

The shows been over now for 8 months

Yes, but Grant finding out that Rob had been lying to him from the get go is not 8 months old. Rob and Grant were in contact until the 3rd or 4th episode of the show. The hurt is still pretty fresh especially because the last episode was right before the finale - Grant may have been wondering for the last 3 months how much more he was going to find out about what Rob really had to say about him.

I am really glad that Rob won. I thought he had a perfect game - he came in with a HUGE target on his back and somehow got the tribe together to keep him till the end. He controlled the vote each tribal, who was going home and he even controlled who would be sitting next to him in the finals. He did a GREAT job!

As far as Grant is concerned. I think he and Rob had a great connection and outside of the game they would have been fast friends. I realize, as do so many others that Rob was playing a game to win. I am sure it was hard for Grant to see Rob fooling him with the clue to the Idol and other things he might have watched once he was home. He also might be questioning how much Rob really liked him if their relationship was built on lies. I hope that he is able to move past it, I think they really liked one another and that they could potentially bond for a great friendship.

Reading some tweets from Jenna....I think based on those that possibly her and Ethan or Ethan or her will be on the next season of Survivor.

Yes there is... @Gaga4Enrique27 Is there a specific reason why you can't wait for Season 23 Wink lol!

JennaMorasca Jenna Morasca

JennaMorasca Jenna Morasca

Amy, I saw that too...I think with Ethan having one of the toughest years of his life beating cancer and Jenna losing her Mom to cancer, I can see the both of them saying "feck it, let's go beat this game too!"

I can't wait to see next season... I love, love, love Survivor and already miss this season!!!

IF Jenna & Ethan were selected to return next season, there is no way in hell she would even peep about it in any social media. She's just yanking our collective chains ....
