Survivor Fantasy: Champions vs. Challengers

Voting is now open for the new Survivor Fantasy season.

It’s time once again for another fantasy season poll, where you the Inside Survivor readers get to vote for the cast of a fictional Survivor season. We’ve previously run two successful fantasy season polls, Survivor: Rebels and Rogues and Survivor: Missed Opportunities. Our latest idea is Survivor: Vietnam – Champions vs. Challengers.

Inspired by the casting rumors surrounding Season 34, we decided to pick a theme which would see ten former Survivor winners go head-to-head with ten former players regarded as some of the “best to never win.” As usual, we’ve selected a ballot of 32 former castaways, and fans can vote for the 20 they want to see return.

We’ve attempted to make the ballot as realistic as possible, choosing people based on various factors: diversity, demographic, who CBS would ask, who would likely accept the offer, etc. To decide on the “Challengers” we made it a rule that each player had to have made a finale episode in at least one of their seasons.

Let’s enter the world of fantasy…

Voting closes Sunday June 25. The results will be revealed soon after.

  1. If this was a real season I think it would be bad, I had trouble picking 5 of each that i’d like to see. The only ones i’d really like to see are Kim, Jenna, Tony, Mike, Tyson, Adam, Steph, Chelsie, Jay, Haydon, Malcolm.

  2. Am I the only person who doesn’t like Stephenie LaGrossa? Sometimes it feels like it.

    I really don’t like how she uses the r-word so freely and acts like she’s so much better than everybody else. The way she treats others – especially other women (Jolanda, Kim Mullen, Brooke, Amanda) – is despicable. She reminds me of the jock bullies I dealt with in middle and high school. I can’t stand her.

  3. Wtf this rule about finale episodes, if that wasn’t there I’d want to see Michaela Bradshaw and Michelle Schubert.

    • It was just an easy way to make the categories. I noticed that most the people I had on my list had made the finale episode, so it made sense keeping that as a rule. So it’s winners versus those that came very close to winning/FTC.

  4. Thank you for your amazing insight, Martin Holmes’ articles are always a great read, and I usually agree with your opinion, keep doing what you’re doing, Natalie B. (Why haven’t they brought her back yet?), Ken (One of the Gabon standouts in my opinion), Chelsea (for eye candy), Natalie A.(could be a potential threat to Sandra’s crown), CBS take note for future returnee seasons, oh and I know this has nothing to do with this fantasy league, but please bring back Morgan McLeod, I enjoyed her so much on the show.
