All in the title.

So far I have seen Australian outback, Africa, Amazon, Pearl Islands, All-Stars and Hero's vs Villians

Currently on season 22 and I cant believe that in episode one

It was certainly an eventful tribal council, but not so good to lose an actual character so soon.

If anyone's interested I'm watching Pearl Islands (my fave season) for the 3rd time.

Pearl Islands was okay

Spoiler


If I had to rank them so far I would say

All - Stars (I loved how bitter the Jury was)
Amazon (Just a great season as the power always changed)
Pearl Islands
Hero's Vs Villians (Will be interesting to watch Pavarati, Ive heard good things about her in her season)
Australia
Africa

Certainly opt for Fans vs Favourites (aka Micronesia) to get your Parvati fix.
Don't expect too much of her in Cook Islands or else you'll be disappointed.

Anyway I don't want to spoil anything so *zips mouth*

Amazon is awesome.

Rupert? Really?

CI is a very underated season. I remember when it came out it was considered one of the worst, seems to be slowly growing on people over time though .

My reaction too. I can hardly bear to watch him when he turns up for Reunion shows, let alone the seasons he actually played.

And sorry, I think S22 is the worst ever.

Actually I think it would have been better without Boston Rob. It just ruined it having someone there that everyone was so in awe of.

I don't actually think they were all THAT dumb, just quite dumb. The editing I think removes any slight form of intelligence in anyone but Rob.
It was just a season gifted to him.

At the beginning of that season, I thought that this cast has a lot of potential. They didn't live up to their potential at all which saddened me. But I wonder if things would have been different without Rob.

For definite the way things played out would have been completely different, and the edit would have been more even because that season it was horrendous.

It was strange, the cast seemed to have all the essential ingredients at the start, but it's like they all had their common sense chips removed and couldn't think for themselves properly.

If the editors wanted to make Rob look good then they should have made everyone look good. Instead it just comes across like a p*ss poor season that anyone could win.

I liked Rupert too. He was a fitting castaway for the pirate theme of Pearl Islands lol
And he was in an alliance with two of my faves - Sandra and Christa.

I'm a fan of Cook Islands too.

My own personal ranking of the seasons is....

I wasn't a fan of CI when I watched it either but I think the reason it was so unpopular was because it was the season that drastically changed the format of the show, e.g. with 20 contestants, final 3 etc., and let's face it, it's shit - but at least now we've come to expect and tolerate it. I still think the show should go back to its 16 contestants and final 2 setup.

Season 22 is the most dire piece of television I have ever suffered through. And such a disappointment after Nicaragua...funnily I missed Nicaragua on its originally airing, so I watched whilst RI was on the air, loved it so much I HAD to follow it up with the first half of Redemption Island, and was even more dismayed at its rubbishness.

With respect to Rupert, I've never been a fan, in PI he showed himself to be a bit of an arse when he went off at Shawn (?) for 'daring to vote' for him.

I think I'll watch All-Stars (for the first time!) when my exams are over...last summer I started filling in the gaps in my Survivor back catalogue and I've now watched all the pre-ASS seasons, although some of them I don't remember too well. Is ASS any good?

Of the recent seasons I'd recommend Nicaragua, Gabon, FvF and China. (21, 17. 16, 15)

I hated All-Stars. So many horrible egos, predictable gameplay. It has the most disgusting, bitter jury I've ever seen in one of these shows. It says it all about a season when the only person you like gets booed and walks off during the reunion show.

Who walked of the reunion show? I didnt bother watching them just saw who won and went to the next one.

The girls have confirmed in interviews afterwards that they knew a lot more than editing let on.

Yep that's my main reason for not liking him. He didn't seem that bad before that but the way he screamed at JFP for daring to vote for him and put him hands around his neck was disgusting. So arrogant. There's a reason why about 98% of survivors that know him take the piss out of him.

Its great how everyone has their favourite seasons, something for everyone . Nicaragua and Gabon are by far my least favourite seasons since like pre All Stars,

Didn't her closest ally Christie get the blame for that and get voted out the next episode because of it?
