Word to the reader: this post was created before the season premiere of Survivor, but we're posting it after the fact because, you know... life gets busy sometimes. If you haven't watched the premiere yet, watch the season premiere of Survivor: Cagayan online now.

Who is your fav Survivor castaway? Tough question. Fave male: Boston Rob. Fave female: Parvati. I like deserving winners.
What is your fav season of Survivor? All-Stars. The original (season 8). I tend to prefer returning player seasons, and it doesn't really get better than a love story (hello, Boston Rob proposing at the live reunion show)!

Woo Hwang on Survivor Sarah: my top pick
Rebecca: he'll be interesting to watch for sure
Christine: he's like an Ozzy, minus the "me, me, me" attitude

Sarah Lacina

Sarah Lacina on Survivor Sarah: I feel good about this gal
Christine: I think we all like this pick
Rebecca: brains and muscles
Jason: I have no idea who this is
Rebecca: the guys will keep her when they team up and pick on girls

Garrett Adelstein

Garret Adelstein on Survivor Sarah: AMAZZZZINNNGGG
Jason: probably the only good pick Sarah made

Sarah: PPPPPoker face

Brice Johnston

Brice Johnston on Survivor Sarah: this will be interesting....

David Samson

David Samson on Survivor Christine: As a Quebecois, i'm shocked Jason would pick a guy associated with destroying the  Montreal Expos   
Jason: Ok, I know.  But hear me out... He's smart and has business acumen
Sarah: is this a good pick? I don't get it. No one will let him win
Rebecca: No one will give him money
Christine: he'll probably be arrogant. No one likes the guy who wants to be the boss all the time
