  • Josh

    Do the tribes happen to be extremely even like Second Chances, Challenge and placement wise?

  • Monae

    Surprised Sara and Toni aren’t together.

    • Ishay

      Most of the people with connections were separated – tony&sara, brad&cierra, Sierra&hali, Aubry&tai/debby, Tai&caleb, Sandra&JT, andrea&malcolm. I think it’s better to give this season a fresh start

  • Matthew Hecht

    With the exception of Cirie to Ozzy and J.T, and Tai to Debbie none of these people have been on a tribe together.

    • me

      Actually, Cirie and JT were on the heroes tribe together in HvV

      • me

        I read your comment wrong sorry ignore that

  • Ishay

    Don’t know why, but I hoped for Cirie and Aubry on the same tribe. Hope they’ll have the chance to play together. I see a Malcolm-Aubry-cierra power alliance

  • Ronald Thomas

    I cannot wait to see Tony and Sandra on the same tribe that’s going to make great TV

    • Applesauce

      Tony: “Look, Sandra…”
      Sandra: *explicit rant*

      Every episode.

    • Lauren

      And then throw Varner in the mix too? It’s going to be amazing

      • Donnie Johnson

        CANNOT wait to see Varner/Micheala/Sandra/Tony. Mana is DEF the better tribe.

    • Ben

      I still feel sad that I’m deprived of seeing Sandra and Natalie together, those two would have gotten on so well. I am really hoping we get to see a Sandra/Aubry alliance.

  • Chris

    I think this is gonna be a good season it’s kinda like 2nd chance 2 but just with 3 people who won it I think we will have a person that never won

  • Dutch

    Tony and Sandra together. I love it.

    • It’s Gonna Happen

      I can hear it already, “Maaan, I don’t trust Tony’s ass AT ALL.”

  • John

    do they want Cirie to fail?? two of her enemies are on her tribe and they are the strongest men of that tribe… I don’t see how Cirie could possibly last 🙁

    • Matthew Hecht

      I think she will align with Tai and Debbie. Sarah and Sierra will likely join them.

      • John

        I can see Cirie aligning with Debbie but Sierra and Tai will definitely gravitate towards Brad and JT and Ozzy. Tai is a huge fan of Ozzy and Sierra and Ozzy were partnered together on TPIR and she has a history of aligning with the intolerable people of the season. It looks like a bro down with Sierra as a sixth to me 🙁 unless Brad flips on the men again

        • Donnie Johnson

          I see Sierra as kind of a new version of Amber. She’ll probs latch on to Ozzy. Lets pray to the Survivor gods those two dont make the finals.

    • Adam

      Right?! I’m devastated. I feel like her legacy is gonna take a big hit for some people 🙁

    • Ben

      Why are people convinced Ozzy and JT are her enemies? All of them will be coming in with a target on their back, isn’t just as possible they realise that they need to stick together in this season? These things are contextual (mind you, I should never rely on Ozzy to know what is best for him).

      • Genco Olive Oil

        JT and Cirie should not start out on the same tribe. JT blindsided her in HvV. It’s almost the equivalent of Boston Rob and Jerri being in the same tribe in HvV after Rob played Lex to out Jerri in All-Stars. There will be a moment of revenge, you watch!

    • Damien Roberts

      I don’t know if it is so deep seeded that they’ll go after her immediately. I am optimistic that she COULD be okay.

    • ctge33

      shiri teams up with the bros and massacres wildcard Zeke, wildcard Debbie and wildcard Sierra.

    • Tim Mueller

      I can’t believe she came back.

    • Yolanda Merkel

      Hope she lasts to the end.

    • Kenneth Valleau

      her tribe has a much better chance to win the challenges though

      • Andrew Young

        No Mana does they have Tony, Malcolm, and Caleb which all proved they were good at challenges. I see how you think Nuku have a better chance but they only have Ozzy and J.T… Malcolm is a more recent version of Ozzy.

        • Kenneth Valleau

          but Malcolm was never as dominate as challenges as Ozzy was, I put malcolm is on the same level as JT but still you never know till you are out there so we will see

    • Sebastian

      Who are her enemies?

      • Luke

        JT and Ozzy. JT was the main person responsible for Cirie going home in Heroes/Villains, and Cirie (along with Parvati) blindsided Ozzy’s ass out (while he had an idol) in Fans/Favorites. Agreed, this is NOT an ideal setup for Cirie

    • Jacinto John Bahalla

      It’s survivor, you gotta read and anticipate what’s the best for you!

  • Eli Edwards

    I’m sure that Malcolm and annoying Cierra will team together to get rid of Sandra/Tony asap. Annoying.

    • kailaautum

      I’d want Ciera to team up with Sandra (don’t care a ton for Malcolm, so that’s whatever) but I really think that Sandra/Tony are a better duo than Malcolm/Ciera. If Tony doesn’t go after Sandra (or vice-versa) I think both of them could easily out play Malcolm/Ciera.

  • Snsetblaze

    They did not match up the athletic ability of the women very well though.

    Nuku has four women (the weak one being Cirie) that are pretty good to very good at challenges. Sierra was voted out over others because Mike was afraid she could beat him. Debbie was ok on some, good on others. Sara and Andrew were athletic.

    Mana has at least two women that are challenge liabilities in physical challenges (Sandra and Ciera). Aubry is very good at challenges. Hali is fair (although it really is hard to tell as she had challenge beast Joe Anglim on her side) and we do not know the new woman.

    The men seem matched up. Caleb with Ozzy on the other side. Malcolm with J.T. (who was great but is older now). Tai/Troi – neither great or bad – depends on the challenge. Tony/Brad – although Tony was not particularly great. The new guy/Varner.

    • Ben

      I feel like Mana has the advantage with the men, and Nuku the advantage with the women. Tai is not really that great in team competitions and he is matching up with Jeff to my way of thinking, Malcolm/Caleb seem overall slightly better than Ozzy/JT (factoring in age) and Tony/Troy seem slightly better on balance than Brad/s33 male, although of course my view could change after watching s33.

    • Marcos Gouvêa

      now we know Michaela is a BEAST

  • Pingback: 'Survivor 34': Title, Cast & Tribe Divisions Revealed For Upcoming Returnee Season - Gossip Moms()

  • Hance

    In Mana tribe (great name btw) I think that Jeff, Tony, Troyzan, and Sandra will be in same aliance. And on the other side there will be Malcom, Ciera, Hali, Caleb. Not sure where Aubrey and other girl will end up.

    In Nuku tribe, I think that big surprise will be aliance between Cirie and JT.

  • Joe

    Yup, Mana has more rootable/inoffensive people whereas in Nuku, it’s only Andrea whom I like over there, with the added detriment that the Nuku dudes are pretty much write-offs.

    • Donnie Johnson

      agreed 1000%. I mean, i like J.T/Ciera/Debbie/Andrea and Brad ok…but compared to Mana, Nuku really does suck ass.

  • Applesauce

    Malcolm and Aubry are on a tribe with a bunch of crazy people. Should be extremely entertaining.

  • Landon

    Queen Cirie is screwed. Why is Ozzy and JT on her tribe???

    • Ishay

      If they’ll work togheter, it will be awesome. I’m can’t wait for this season !

  • Daniel

    Well Cirie is fucked.

    • Ishay

      Men I hope she makes it

  • Owen

    Cirie won’t be that screwed over. If anything, she will want vengeance on JT for flipping on her in HvV. The only people she really has to be worried about is Ozzy, Andrea, and the season 33 guy. I don’t know if she can make it all the way to the end, but she isn’t as hopeless as one might think.

  • Anne

    I would really like Aubry, Malcolm, and Caleb to align but I so fear that Malcolm and Caleb are so screwed. I hope I am wrong about that!

    • Andrew McMahon

      They could align with ciera and get out sandra and tony that be the smart move I reckon

  • Ismael

    If anyone can make it is Cirie. She was overconfident in HvV, but I think she’ll learn from that.

  • Ben

    I wish they banned themselves, temporarily, from so regularly making the starting tribes primary colours exclusively, or secondary colours exclusively. Cambodia mixed tribal colours up a little nicely with pink, teal and yellow. Lets hope if they revisit the ‘Angkor’ concept in this game that the equivalent tribe is NOT yellow on this season – perhaps a pale purple or brown or something. Or lets hope that Mana is more orange than it appears here, because Orange and Blue would work.

    Really bored with the red/blue/yellow colour scheme over and over.

    On the other hand – Mana is my tribe right now. Hoping the girls stick together and bring in Jeff, I could see guys like Troy and Tony being in immediate trouble on that tribe. But I also get the feeling like it will be the tribe that meshes a little more. Hope Cirie manages to make it to the merge on the other tribe, it’s really hard to see how things might play out with that mix of people. Can’t wait to see how Ozzy copes with Debbie! I could see this being the season where Ozzy doesn’t make the merge.

    MANA TRIBE
    a.k.a The guys Vs Sandra+Ciera sasszzz
    Tony and Aubrey will probably work together. Vaner and Troyzan will probably try to get in majority and get in control. I hope they put Varner, Tony and Troyzan in the same tribe, so they’ll try to get rid of each other, and leave Sandra alone hahaha

    meanwhile in NUKU TRIBE
    the girls seams more peaceful, and Brad and Tai are the most aggravating, but Brad seems tolerable, he’ll probably slide more quietly now. Ozzy will probably talk and talk until they lost their first immunity and get rid of him, I hope not.

    I just want Ozzy, Malcolm, Andrea, Ciera, Sandra, and Caleb to reach the merge.

    • shihomt

      the price is right “models” will probably align with each other, Sierra should spray insecticide before Ozzy can rub in anyway possible his latino charm all over her, pretty much like what he did on that red car. *and amanda*

    • Tara Healy

      I hope that Malcom wins season 34 sourivior with j.t and Ozzy make final 3 with Andrea ‘
      Tia and Caleb

  • Chris Merch

    I am pulling for Ozzy, Cirie, Andrea and Malcolm they were so darn close before ugggh. I hope they team up and Cirie doesn’t make the same mistake she made on H vs. V. If you get rid of the athletes you will go to tribal everytime and dwindle. I would love to see this final four with a final two of any combination, would be sweet.
    – Tai was close too, but I don’t think he could win with a returnee jury.

  • Marcos Gouvêa

    Now that we know who the players from season 33 are I just cant wait to see more of Michaela <333 GO GIRL

  • ABC123

    I am happy Sandra is playing again, but I feel she has a lot to lose legacy wise. If she doesn’t care about her legacy (very possible) then great. She is a great player and has a shot at a million dollars. But, if she does care about her legacy then adding a loss to that perfect record will hurt. Her 2 wins are not the most respected, so if she does not do well this season (very possible as she will be seen as a target) the is Sandra actually good questions will grow.

    • kailaautum

      People who question Sandra’s 2 (!!!) wins are just bitter, honestly. HvV is considered one of the top seasons of Survivor & she pulled that W over Russell and Parv. It’s amazing to me that people consider Boston Rob, who took multiple tries to win and only won on a season catered to him, a great player yet they will question whether Sandra is a good player. This isn’t meant as an attack on you at all, because you’re voicing what I believe a lot of people are thinking (in terms of her losing a legacy), but I just don’t think it’s true. Sandra will always, no matter who comes up next to be a two-time winner, will the first person to have won the game twice. Nothing is going to change that. The fact that there is even a lingering doubt in anyone’s mind as to whether she’s good is absolutely nuts!! If she goes out early in Game Changers it’s because they saw her as a huge threat (which she is) and not because she’s a bad player.

      • ABC123

        Absolutely agree. You can maybe luck into 1 win. You can’t luck into 2. If she goes out early next season, as I expect she will, she is still no question in my mind an incredible player. Her legacy will still be a great one, but 2 wins in 2 tries sounds better than 2 wins and an 11th place in 3 tries for example. It will hurt her legacy in my opinion, but nothing could remove it.

      • Genco Olive Oil

        I don’t disagree that Sandra is a great player and earned her victories but I disagree that BR’s win season was catered to him. Rob was a late replacement for Richard Hatch. I guess you think they changed up the whole cast in the last 3 weeks before the season started?

  • MiaR

    “In my first seaon I played with Kass and in this season with Sandra, its a same thing Jeff, same thing” imagine that in Tony’s voice.

  • Donnie Johnson

    Mana is def my tribe. Would LOVE to see Varner, Aubry, Ciera, Micheala or Malcolm win. I actually love everyone on that tribe.
    The Nuku tribe sucks…
    To be honest….Anyone but Ozzy winning would be allright

    • Cyril Axel

      tai dark horse of that tribe

    • Trump

      Nuku is a better fit tribe to win challenges actually.

  • Yolanda Merkel

    This hasn’t even started and I already want both Tony and Brad to be gone. They disgust me.

  • Maria MacLachlan

    Yawn. Happy to see returners like Michaela, Caleb and Tony who’ve only played once before. Really don’t care to see people come back again and again though. I might cheer up if Ozzy’s the first boot.

  • Zach Steven Whitlow

    I am going to go with a dark horse this season and make the bold prediction that Sarah will actually win Survivor. She seems like she can learn from her mistakes quickly and showed great observation skills (minus her blindside). If she can just stick to her guns, I could see her allying with the right people and making a deep run.

  • Cyril Axel

    shouldnt have broke up tai and caleb!

  • Michelle

    Why the HELL is Russell Hantz not on this season?! Are the Survivor mucky mucks afraid of high ratings and strategic players? Russell should be on Game Changers because he is the ultimate Game Changer. Stop continuing to choose players that can be physical threats alone, ones that truly only dream and aspire to be Russell the Ultimate Game Changer. You know he raised the bar!

    #BRINGRUSSELLHANTZBACK

  • I do agree with some of your points about how juries seem to take part in group think at times (I think this is more a result of the larger jury than anything else – 10 people is too much). But according to the jurors in exit interviews, none of them knew about Adam’s story (apart from Jay obviously), until he revealed it at FTC. They were planning to vote for him even before that.

    • Andrew McMahon

      I don’t think that would matter Adam was clearly the best player out the 3

  • Genco Olive Oil

    She appears to be in a tough spot going in. It would be interesting to see if she plots to pit Ozzie and JT against each other.

  • Andrew McMahon

    Cant wait for this season it should be brillant delighted see tony one my favourite players play the game again. For me both tribes are brillant but if they don’t get sandra out on her tribe asap then there something wrong with them two time winner makes it to the end she automatically wins in my book. The non winners should make pact to get rid of previous winners that be my angle if I was on either tribe be gunning for previous winners. Anyone have any idea the theme for 35 I take it that be all new players

    • Cam TexasBoy Perry

      pretty much what happened in all stars

  • Andrew McMahon

    They be stupid not get her out first in my book easy first vote

  • Andrew Young

    Someone on Mana will win

  • Sebastian

    Jay didn’t do that. Adam told him he’d never forgive him if he told anyone.

  • Tara Healy

    Please have Jay back For season 35 you need to him back why he still wants to play He could win next time you should give players like that a second chance

  • Rueven Sane

    I think JT, Ozzy & Culpepper are the first three out, easy bet. That is if they lose a challenge, which might not happen depending upon Andrea (which I’m thinking is their only good puzzle solver, maybe Debbie or Zeke is all right on puzzles too). Tai and Zeke will connect right away and Cirie will grab on to that along with a few of the other women. Those three guys are screwed. Overall, I predict Malcolm, Aubry and Ciera forming a strong bond (Varner hopefully gets into that mix as well and goes a long way) and going to the end and a very close final vote Malcolm beating Aubry. But it’s Survivor and it could go a million different ways. I would Love to see Sandra or Tony win but with this group there’s just too many people hungry for the win that would let that happen. We’ll see, can’t wait. Oh yeah, who’s Troyzan?

  • Larry’s Opinion

    I would have liked to have seen the two AA women on the same tribe or some (at least 1) AA men.
