    • I’ll refrain from prejudging too much til I’ve seen the cast videos. Even then they can surprise you on the show. I’m hopeful.

  1. Somehow, I think there’s going to be some kind of a twist. Since the series is all but permanently docked, they can’t call it by any more geographical location.

  2. Since Morgan’s on the Naviti tribe, I’m rooting for them. Lol. Based off of pictures, Morgan is my winner pick…for now.
