Can you imagine if she did? lol!
I would have thought she was a bigger fool.
I can't believe she told Phillip she had the idol...why???
I am disappointed in her, I thought she was going to be a good player...but she is not!

IMO her mouth (and ego) was as big as Phillip's and she was just as spazzy as him... and to boot she wants to vote off one of the strongest players right after they LOSE their very first strength competition??? what the f*

bravo

It was a very entertaining first TC. Sad that Francesca got the boot instead of Kristina. I know it's a long shot, but I hope she can redeem herself on redemption island.

I knew from the first moment I saw Phillip that he was going to be a crazy loon. The beady eyes gave it away. Hopefully he's not long for this game.

I hate that the start of the season has become kiss Boston Rob's ass to not be on the wrong side of his alliance. Blech! TBH, I cannot wait for Boston Rob's boot episode - it has to happen!

Jeff's episode 1 blog.

Quote :
Survivor: Redemption Island Episode One Blog 2/17/11
by jeff.probst on February 17, 2011 · 123 Comments

Welcome to the first official episode blog on JeffProbst.com. I know I promised you a video blog, but here’s the truth. I got home from New York at 1:30 am. I sat down in my living room five minutes after getting home and recorded a nine minute video blog. Was it any good? I have no idea. But as I loaded it to YouTube it.. was… too…long. I’m still learning and evidently there is a size limit.

So… you get the written blog once again. I know a lot of you want this to be a written blog anyway. The truth is doing a video blog is a helluva lot easier for me. So maybe I’ll vary it and on days when I have time I’ll write it and other times I’ll videotape it… just shorter.

For the record it is now 3:30 am. That’s 630 am NY time so I’m now at 24 hours without sleeping. Bear that in mind as you read this blog! But I promised you it would be here when you woke up, so here it is.

SURVIVOR REDEMPTION ISLAND EPISODE ONE BLOG
Feb. 17th, 2011

Well we are one episode in to our 22nd season and I’d say we’re off to a pretty damn good start.

Phillip: I’m a former federal agent. That’s right. Special Agent Shepard.”

Those ten words ushered in a new Survivor superstar. Phillip Shepherd.

I can already hear you guys complaining. Probst, you love Phillip. You have a hard-on for Phillip. (that was one of the quotes I read on Twitter.) I know many of you already hate Phillip. You think Phillip is crazy. Phillip is a loser. Those words fall on deaf ears. It’s as if I don’t have ears. They just bounce off and fall to the ground. I absolutely love Phillip and I’m pretty sure Jimmy Fallon does too!

But more on him later…

THE HELICOPTER OPEN
First off – flying out the back of a helicopter is a rush no matter how many times I get to do it. Here’s how we did it: I was attached by one safety strap that is hidden under my shirt and the strap is attached to one clip which is attached to the floor of the helicopter. That’s it. That’s all that stops me from falling out of the sky and to what I’m pretty certain would be instant death. But our safety guys told me that it was “almost completely safe…” so I said “Okay, strap me in!”

To get that awesome shot just after I say: “Thirty nine days, 18 people.. One Survivor” — two things have to happen at the exact same moment. The helicopter I was on has to bank to the right and the helicopter that is filming us banks to the left. If they both hit it at the right moment you get that epic moment where it looks like the chopper that I’m on is falling off the side of the earth. If the earth were indeed flat. Our chopper crew of Mark Hryma (photographer) and Ken Gray (pilot) are really, really, really good and their communication with my chopper was the reason that shot looked so freakin epic.

It’s an incredibly fun experience that I wish all of you could try just once. It’s a total rush. I wish we could use choppers or planes every time. Adds a lot of drama.

OUR NEWEST TWIST
We had pitched Redemption Island to CBS for a few years but we could never get it past them because the creative wasn’t quite right. Last year we hit upon the magic formula and CBS said yes. They took a HUGE chance letting us change the format of our show. Survivor is a format that has worked all over the world and has allowed us to garner big ratings for over a decade here in the U.S.

Networks don’t mess with things that work. But Leslie Moonves and the guys at CBS take risks. I think this one is going to pay off nicely.

I will go on the record that I think we’ll be doing it again next year. We haven’t even officially been picked up for next year nor talked about creative for next year but I just can’t see going back to the old format. Afer the first tribal council I thought, “I can’t imagine voting someone out and then having them be “gone” from the show. We’d miss out on so much. The “losers bracket” which is what RI is, just opens up so many options.

I realize it’s too early to decide if you like it but I’ll ask you again in episode 5 after you’ve had a bit of time to try it on for size.

HOURS BEFORE THE START
I woke up on day one with a really powerful and positive feeling about the season. No idea where it came from, but I knew it was real. It was still hours before we were going to put them on the chopper and I had an idea.

I took my boombox, yes I still have a boombox, and I gathered the Survivors around me in a circle. They still couldn’t talk because the game hadn’t yet started. I then put on LOSE YOURSELF by Eminem. I blasted it from the speakers. I had the words printed on a sheet of paper. I went from one person to another singing the song.. well talking the song… well actually just basically screaming the song. I wanted them to feel the energy I felt – that we were sitting on the edge of something really special.

LOSE YOURSELF LYRICS
If you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it? Or just let it slip?

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.

Not sure what they thought about my performance – if they thought I had lost my mind, (which was kinda true) was a lousy singer, (very true) or maybe they just didn’t care one way or the other (quite possible.) But it didn’t matter, I really thought we were onto something and I wanted to share it. In fact, the lyrics of LOSE YOURSELF influenced some of the language I ended up using at Redemption Island duels. See if you pick up on it as the season unfolds.

BOSTON ROB AND RUSSELL
From the moment R and R exited the chopper the energy changed and it stayed that way for the entire 39 days. Having Rob and Russell ignited something in every other contestant. Like them or not, they are stars of Survivor and they bring something special to the season.

Their journey won’t be easy.

Both have huge targets. Huge. For obvious reasons. No need to waste the space we know the drill. We know their backs are up against the wall. So do they.

But give Russell 3 more days on that island and that one girl alliance could become the two girl alliance that he has used so successfully in the past and he’s off and running. Is it even plausible that he could do it a third time?

Give Boston Rob a few days to solidify an alliance and a few more challenges to prove his worth and he too could become unstoppable.

But if either of them lose many challenges in a row they are probably in trouble. Kristina is already onto Rob and the entire Zapatera tribe, save Stephanie, seems to be onto Russell.

Ah but Survivor is an ever changing game.

And even if they are voted out early… they have Redemption Island. They are guaranteed a second chance. Good luck beating Boston Rob at a duel, Francesca.

A FEW OF THE OTHERS
Natalie – our youngest competitor ever at 18. Huge adventure for a girl just out of high school. Think about it. Takes nerve just to show up. I root for Natalie.

Matthew, whose religious faith is going to be severely tested if he lasts very long at all. Survivor is a game where “turn the other cheek” typically doesn’t work very well.

Kristina showed herself to be a very strong contender by finding the idol in first few hours.

Ralph, as Mike said has the best man sweater in Survivor history and will need a full-time interpreter if we are to understand him. Or subtitles. Maybe both.

In addition, we have MANY other great characters that you will come to know. Have no fear if I didn’t mention your favorite or the person from your hometown. They’ll all get their chance to shine. This really is a great season. Great.

CHALLENGES
Our opening challenge is indicative of what to expect this season. Big challenges. Our challenge department had a lot of pent up energy left over from having to do smaller challenges during Survivor: Nicaragua (aka Old vs Young.) This one set the tone that you’ll be earning everything this year.

TRIBAL COUNCIL
That was hands down the best first tribal council ever. It was yet another sign to me that whatever that feeling I had the morning of Day One was legit.

Poor Phillip, he really had trouble with Francesca’s name. I think he mispronounced it a few more times but we just couldn’t include them all because sooner or later we had to get to the vote.

It was funny the first three times. Really funny the next three and I nearly fell off my stump the last three. But as he mentioned, he did have dry mouth for which he was getting treatment, so we have to account for that. What wasn’t included was Phillip telling me at tribal council that he had dyslexia. I don’t think anybody believed him but honestly who knows who is telling the truth in this game. Certainly not me. I never know when someone is bullshitting or being straight up, but after he told me he had dyslexia I couldn’t laugh at the mispronunciation any more. He found my soft spot. If he was lying, it worked on me.

Have I told you how much I love Phillip. It’s his earnest nature. That’s what I responded to from the day I met him in casting. He lives this stuff. He believes it. For real. Just like another great Survivor character… Coach!

THE BEST MOMENT OF THE EPISODE
The moment of the episode had to be Rob demanding that Kristina show him the idol. HUGE MOVE. And it worked. She not only showed it to him she handed it to him. Damn, that is how you do it.

I say it all the time. To get to the end of this game – sooner or later you will have to make a big move. Rob isn’t waiting or wasting any time to make big moves. First tribal, first gigantic, intimidating move. I think Kristina was even considering giving it to him a sign of solidarity. It’s amazing what Rob can pull off. Boston charm.

Downside for Rob.. the target on his back just got a lot larger. Remember that huge red Target store logo from season one? Yes I know some of you were only three when we started… well the target on Rob’s back is that big.

NEXT WEEK TEASE – It’s a great episode. The tease: Phillip goes hunting for crab. You will laugh for sure and you may even shed a patriotic tear. It’s one of the best scenes of the season. Yes, he’s wearing his peach underwear.

OUR LIVE TWITTER EXCHANGE: For those of you who missed it. I was flying home from New York and while on the flight I tweeted live with fans who were watching the show at the same time. It was really kind of amazing. I was watching the show on the airplane at 30,000 feet and tweeting back and forth. It was quite the fun experience. I’ll see what the feedback is over the week and maybe we’ll try to do it again. I stole the idea from Howard Stern who did it recently while watching his movie Private Parts on television.

Later.

What a great start to the season last night! I have always enjoyed Rob, I think he is a great guy and I like the way he plays these games.

The tribal councel was so funny. I can not believe that Philip blurted out all the information he did with the people he was working with and I am disappointed that Candace was the one that fell prey to that dibacle - I think Kristina was the one that should have been booted.

I don't care much for Kristina but I will say that I was impressed that she was looking for the idol so quickly after arriving and kudos to her for finding it. My only thing about it is that the idol is such an important thing in the game that having the tenacity to find it comes with the same kind of tenacity to hide it until you need it. Telling both Candace and Phillip that she had it so quickly was surely a game play mistake on her part.

I might be in the minority but I hope that Rob stays in the game for a long time, I enjoy watching him and the way he navigates the people and the challenges in the game. His team appears to be the weaker of the two so I am concerned that they will end up at Tribal more often than the others.

I know I was yelling it at the tv....really he couldn't get it right after saying it about 20x according to Jeff's blog they had to cut some of it out too so imagine how many times we heard him try and say it and how many times he butchered it. LOL!

As someone who has a difficult name to pronounce, I thought the way Philip kept butchering Francesca's name was nothing but disrespectful. I hope Philip's boot episode is satisfying.

No worries, don't be sorry, I am glad you corrected me! I might have gone on forever thinking her name was Candace. LOL She wasn't there long enough to get a good read on her so I will reserve my decision as to who she is in the grand scheme of things. As for Philip and his inability to pronounce her name, I find that rather humorous and odd. My initial read on him is that he is just plain odd! LOL Wonder if he can pronouce Candace? LOL

thank you You said it better than I ever could.

Don't get me wrong, I like Boston Rob, but I think it's dangerous for them to keep him around.

I hope Francesca can redeem herself because I liked her. And I like Kristina too, but she needed to approach the other girls instead of talking to Phillip. That guy does not know how to keep secrets. What an idiot.

I liked Stephanie too and her dealing with Russell even if the other members already guessed the Russ/Steph alliance.

Overall, enjoyed the show very much.

Boston Rob does it so well.... I love him. I want him to kick Russels' ass on Redemption Island.

The tribes are not even...not even close in strength. Kristina over played from start. Immediately targeted Boston Rob and Natalie (why?), and chose Phillip and Francesca as an alliance? WTH was she thinking?

I like Robs arrogance in this situation. He is who he is, just as Russell is ....I just prefer RObs style. I am sucker for Robs smirk and twinkling eyes....

Loved the first episode, but I hope see more of the other players next week Smile

I hope she gets the best of Rob in the end. fuss and fight run away

lol! Okay...I was wondering if there was anyone else that was even semi- okay with Kristina. I don't have a favorite, but I do like that she's playing the game. I'm right behind you Nancy run away

From Reality TV Lounge:

Survivor: Here's What Really Happened During That Epic Tribal Council
by Andrew Evans TV.com Staff Writer

*snip*

On screen, Tribal Council lasted less than seven minutes. In real life, it dragged on for over two hours. There was an out-and-out fight between Phillip and Francesca with plenty of outrageous shouting and finger-pointing. Kristina played the coward, trying desperately to look like she was on the right side of wrong. Phillip’s inability to correctly pronounce Francesca’s name was a sticking point, and there were even some silly racial remarks between the two African-American castaways. Phillip just couldn’t let it go and got hotter and hotter in his outbursts. If anything, he revealed himself as the show’s raging lunatic. This first Tribal Council could have been a special episode in and of itself, one that made you laugh, gasp and cringe all at once.

Full review at link.

It was a very entertaining first TC. Sad that Francesca got the boot instead of Kristina. I know it's a long shot, but I hope she can redeem herself on redemption island.

I knew from the first moment I saw Phillip that he was going to be a crazy loon. The beady eyes gave it away. Hopefully he's not long for this game.

I hate that the start of the season has become kiss Boston Rob's ass to not be on the wrong side of his alliance. Blech! TBH, I cannot wait for Boston Rob's boot episode - it has to happen!

OMG... finally someone who agrees with me. They are all just falling over backwards to help his game. Of course, he is egotistical enough to think that is the way it should be. Rob and Russell both need to go. IMO

I had a different reaction than most people in that I actually liked Kristina and Francesca the most! I was sad that Francesca got voted out, she seemed great to me. I don't like how entitled and cocky both Rob and Russell are and I was annoyed at the people who were acting all starstruck like groupies- I want them both to get voted off. Philip was a hilarious trainwreck and him not being able to say the name was so funny. I cannot imagine the man being a federal agent of anything lol

I like Rob but at the same time I don't like the starstruck behavior for either of them. I don't think Kristina and Francesca are bad at all. I think Phillip is a basket case who will crack if he doesn't calm down and he seriously needs to stop with the pink droopy undies. I mean really! I don't have a strong enough opinion on anyone else yet. It usually takes me a few episodes to form a solid opinion. I just think having Rob and Russell is interesting this year. Honestly, I could take them or leave them.

Exactly! You'd think that any man would be smart enough to wear boxer briefs under his clothes for the fly in, no? At least then, if you end up running around the island in your underwear, we only see a moose knuckle, and there's no risk of having anything escape.

I read somewhere that the producers pick the clothes they wear to reflect their "character" on the show. Doubt they go as far as underwear, though. I am still traumatized by the sight of Phillip in his pink briefs.

I've stopped watching Survivor in recent years and the little I've seen of Russell completely turns me off. I'm only watching because of Rob. His charm and ability to manipulate people is really amazing.

I just don't get it. I think he is a douche. I don't think he is charming at all.
He thinks the others owe him. It's just like Big Brother. The ones who think you should play so they can win instead of playing for yourself.
I think I have some deep psychological problem with cocky guys.
I never understood women's attraction to "bad boys". I'll take a geek over a bad boy any day.

Nancy I really disliked Rob on his first season of Survivor, but when it came to All Stars I fell in love with him and with Heros vs Villians he dominated ALOT of those challenges with his abilities to do a puzzle. I have become a HUGE fan of his, truth be told I have a little crush on him!

I think Rob Mariano is the farthest from being a douche.
I haven't seen him ever say or act like he thinks others owe him...one of the very first things he said on this season is he thinks they would be smart if they got rid of him.
Rob was one of the hardest workers I have seen on any season of Survivor.
His first season I was in awe of the camp he made...it was like a luxury hotel compared to all the other camps.
I like him because he is a hard-working guy who goes on the show and he plays hard to win...he doesn't lay around camp expecting his alliance to drag him to the end and win it for him.
I also like that he doesn't talk down to women ...I like that he can see who is playing hard right off the bat and I like that he respects that they are playing hard too.

Actually I felt the same way- I didn't like him at all in his first season- I thought he was an asshole. I think it was his relationship with Amber that humanized him for me. He's a faithful and devoted husband and father, so he's not all bad.

I couldn't believe it when he asked Kristina to hand him the idol- and she did. I think for a moment she actually considered giving it to him. Amazing.

I am in shock, Amy and kmjm!!

I became a Rob fan from his FIRST season...that season is when I became a Rob fan.
He had the perfect mix for me to like him...he played hard, worked harder and he caused some fun drama in the camp!

Ozzy is my favorite but Rob is right there behind him. I did find Rob to be completely way too cocky his first season, but Amber did humanize him!! I will say no other player IMO has worked as hard as he has!!! His camps are indeed the best I've ever seen!

No, as a matter of fact he has one of those extra thick Bostonian accents that I don't like.
But he is good-looking Italian guy from the North End that loves his family so I can handle that accent on him.
lol!
