  • Morgan

    Bitch mode cowboy on the beauty tribe? Are you for real?

    • Wild Rose

      He wouldn’t be on brains !!! He’s dumber than a sack of hammers lol couldn’t work his way out of a paper bag lol

  • Igor

    man oh man real love this guy love them all go neal to aubery go jullia go michele but not in a sexey way go anna go joe go jenifer go all them i love this guy there so so

  • Cole

    Well the Brains are due to fail again…

    It seems like most of cast is on the right tribe, and then a couple were just thrown onto a random one.

  • Nick

    Is it just me or does peter kinda look like obama xD

    • Annie Stephenson

      He looks like Obama to me as well

  • Regal

    There are some really weird choices for their corresponding tribes.

  • Faith

    As a super fan who will be old enough to apply in January, I can both appreciate and envy Julia Sokolowski. I aspire to be the youngest contestant/winner ever so I do halfway hope that she doesn’t win. I do think it’s interesting that there are actual models on this season and they aren’t on the beauty tribe. Seriously though, where are the Morgan’s, Jeremiah’s, and LJ’s? I find it interesting that there are a few people who, to some extent, work(ed) in poker. Reminiscent of BB17. Speaking of, why Caleb? Just why? He will be beyond blind, but people will view him as a threat (why???). I don’t think he will go far. If they were going to pick anyone from BB16 though, why not crazy Zach, interesting Frankie, hot Cody (it is the beauty tribe), or awesome Derrick? No, of course they pick annoying Caleb, whose face (and dull color) I wish I never had to expierience through a television screen again. I guess I should just be happy that they didn’t get “Candy Land”. Overall though, this cast seems like they filmed a truly great season, and they don’t seem like half bad people. But really, are we going to have to sit through a former NBA player every time Survivor does a BvBvB season?
    Ps. Sorry for the rant.

    • Josh Potter

      Younger is not always better, the older contestants have a better shot because they have the life experience to pull from and not be manipulated as easily. I’m only 29, but I always manipulate younger people at work to do things for me. it’s just to easy

      • adsf

        you mean “too”? Not much life experience at spelling

    • Tom

      Interesting Frankie!?!?! He was the most vile and sexist person that I’ve ever seen on my TV!

    • sigh

      Will they always have an airhead beauty queen every season, or are the two NBA players too much for you?

    • Wild Rose

      I heard Zach was banned from cbs after some choice words over money !!

    • JimmyJam

      I love ur rant!?! I tell ya though…when it comes to the final three I hope Julia and Tai are in that group…
      They both are playing a good strategic game at this point. I like Tai because he is simply one of the best SANDBAGGERS on the show…Julia is playing both end from the middle.

  • Dutch

    Ok that’s a weird mashup on tribes….

  • Deb

    Must I be the first to say it..Tai Trang on beauty? I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that bologna but come on. If you’re going to separate people based on certain characteristics then maybe they ought to actually have those characteristics. Why not just invite Cochran back to be on the beauty tribe and Brandon Hantz to be on brains. Ass-backwards.

    • Dutch

      I agree. I mean I don’t mean to bash older men, but I can’t find him beautiful. Something must be off

    • Genki

      It’s because they’re providing commentary on inner beauty. Jeff said he’s on the beauty tribe because he “cares about all living things”. He’s also a philanthropist of sorts.

  • Tyler Robinson

    Can’t say I’m too excited. This cast looks a little bland and old. I am especially turnoff to this season because of Beast Mode Cowboy. He was simply a creeper who couldn’t get over the fact that Amber didn’t want to get with him, so he shoved her out of the house.

    I have to agree with what Deb says above …
    Must I be the first to say it … Tai Trang on beauty? I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that … but come on. If you’re going to separate people based on certain characteristics then maybe they ought to actually have those characteristics.

    The Beauty tribe is far from Beautiful (unless they just submitted bad pics) some are very ordinary,
    others just not good looking at all , many of the cast members from the other tribes are much better looking.

    I had to Laugh at some of the occupations …
    Does being a bodybuilder, poker player, blogger &/or former BB cast, even count as having a profession?

    Still, as always looking forward to the new season!

    Happy Holidays Every-One! Enjoy

  • Pat O’ Hearn

    Are you kidding me, they are all perfect. I love the mix. All new people, sure they watch the show but until you land on that island they have no idea what will take place and all the tricks that will be in-store for them.

    Just a feeling that this ‘SURVIVOR’ will blow us away, it will be hard to beat Season 31 but just wait. Jeff is the very best at what he does without question. At the end of the day it will be a New Season, with new people, new games to be played, it will be an interesting ‘ SURVIVOR ‘

    All the very best in 2016

  • Richard

    As always, Survivor producers write the rules as needed. This cast is another prove.

  • Taenora

    Reading Tai Trang bio, I find him to be a beautiful person. I hope he wins!

  • Eric Chung

    Give me a Tai-break.. Beauty???WTF

  • Don Murray

    I should have been picked. For sure.

  • amber

    There is NO WAY some of the “beauty” tribe should be on there, were the production crew on crack? Really?

  • james butler

    nice to see all new faces, and new personalities, looks like a great season to come. i’l be glued!

  • Kendyll

    I love Survivor so much and I can’t wait to see this new season.

  • Kasley

    Can’t wait to too see all new faces try and face the world in all new wonders. I love survivor and can’t wait to see this new season.

  • Jim Browne

    Have been a fan since Season 1 and always have lotto contests with other fans. However, not too much eye candy this year, especially in the Beauty Tribe…..really? But who cares, as long as I pick the winner this year and win the lotto.

  • jun

    Why is am man of age 51 in beauty

    • Wild Rose

      Well he is nice to look at lol

  • Cindy Zellner

    At least most of the players aren’t from California. Would LOVE to see a 40 and older survivor. I’m, a super fan and would sure love to see more “real” people. More from the South and Midwest with values. No more model types, it hurts the entire game. And make them work for their food like in the beginning, Don’t hand them so many rewards………. How do you get tickets for the finale?

  • Keltickaren

    I’ve seen every episode in real time (except one when I had to go to my husband’s retirement dinner) since the beginning. Last season (31) the challenges were better. I didn’t like the Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty in the past and doubt it will be any better this time. It’s always been my fantasy to have ALL BB players on Survivor for a season and ALL Survivor players on Big Brother. Now, that would be amazing!
    Personally, I think Big Brother is the more difficult game.

    • Linda Rippetoe

      Great idea on the sharing of BB and Survivor contestants!!!!!!

  • Linda Rippetoe

    Love Survivor!!!! Can’t wait, doesn’t matter who the contestants are it is always a good and interesting show. I must say I am glad to see Caleb Reynolds on there!!!! Can’t get enough of him, I think he is good TV. A mix of celebrities and just common folks makes for a good tribe!! Be safe.

  • Evelyn

    I can’t wait – already love Tai Trang

  • john

    I’m a BIG fan of Survivor, Big Brother and The Amazing Race. But seeing contestants on any one of the shows once is enough. Tired of seeing the same people on these shows, even “switching” shows. Is it too much for the producers to get an entire cast of fresh faces for each show. Surely there’s enough applicants to field new teams each season. Producers are getting bored and lazy as far as I’m concerned. BTW – how about signing Betty White as a contestant for a show? If she can survive being tackled on a Super Bowl commercial, she’s my gal !!

    • Tina

      I think casting calls are way overdo for Kentucky! Its been said that our state is one of the highest in your market for tuning in to the show. We need some more outback dads like Roger Bingham on the show, Come on Ky lets get back on the show!

  • JB

    How many episodes will there be in season 32?

    • Martin Holmes

      Most likely 14 as usual. 🙂

  • an vi

    ok seriously WTF is with the chickens?Thats just disturbing! Throw some beans at them…its a game..animals shouldnt be getting hurt!

    • Jacob Cummings

      It’s not smart to waste more of your food by throwing it at a chicken who will give you much needed protein that will help you have more energy for challenges and the rest of the game.

  • Jacob Cummings

    Unsure how I feel about this cast this year, it just seems like there are a lot of people with big ego’s and I think they did that to draw in more drama than we’ve ever seen so far on this show.

  • MM

    First of all I have to say I love Survivor. I have watched it from day one. What I don’t get are the bras and underwear. I’m not insulted by it but it’s not practical. Nylon pants with zip off legs. SPF 45 shirts to prevent sunburn, open rubber shoes that dry fast etc. Maybe someone will get smart in Survivor 36! Jeff, keep up the good work!

    • Martin Holmes

      Unfortunately the contestants don’t get the final decision on what clothes they wear on the show. Producers have to approve the clothing and they usually choose clothes that best fit the persons “character” or personality, and also they like them to show off their “beach bodies” for ratings.

  • Rebecca

    I’m still trying to get to know everyone, and here are my impressions from tonight:  

    Alecia just rubs me the wrong way.  Who’s she trying to fool with that bleach blonde hair?  It doesn’t go with her complexion at all.

    Cydney?  Arrogant.

    Kyle “Sarg” Jason is kinda cool.  I was impressed the way he went after that idol!

    Debbie is an awful loud mouth and pretty arrogant besides.

    Tai is great!  He’s smart and very likeable.  He was hurting after helping to butcher the chicken, but he didn’t back away from doing it.

    Peter is another arrogant bugger.  Maybe doctors need that arrogance to succeed…I dunno.  I just don’t like that trait.  

    Nick I’m not so sure about.  His bio states that he’s a FORMER RHAP BLOGGER.  WTF is that???

    ‘K, that’s all for now.

    • Martin Holmes

      RHAP = Rob Has A Podcast. It’s a website and podcast network run by Rob Cesternino (from Survivor: Amazon and Survivor: All-Stars). It’s a big part of the online Survivor community. Nick used to blog for the website about Survivor. 🙂

  • john

    What’s with the ER Doctor (Peter) not going to the aid of any of the three stricken with heat stroke on the rewards challenge tonight? Pathetic. I’d sure as hell wouldn’t let him treat me in an emergency room.

  • nbafan

    Anyone else think Scot Pollard and Jason were both dirt bags for berating Alecia? Talk about Pollard distorting the facts as if he had any part of the Celtics playoff run the year he was GIFTED his ring. He didn’t log a single playoff minute and last played a game in February of that year. He was intentionally left off the playoff roster for a reason (Most likely his 4ppg and 4rpg career averages). It was laughable for him to infer that he was somehow superior to Alecia because he knew what it took to win a championship. News flash for Scot Pollard you actually have to play in a championship playoff run to claim you know what it takes to win one.

  • Peggi Calder

    I have watched Survivor since the first, and am not happy with the metamorphosis. Strategizing and plotting have taken over from what we first really enjoyed. What are they eating? What were those clams(?) they picked up from the ocean, what were the leaves they were picking on the beach? How did they prepare them? Where did all of their food come from? I’m fed up with the yakking and scheming. You are filming in countries that most of us will never visit – let’s see more of the country and how contestants are interacting with their location.

  • Reebs

    Congrats to Michelle! Wonderful season. Great cast. I thought the finale was overshadowed by the popstar, although donating to a great cause this was not the time to do it. She upstaged the cast, some who had not yet had a chance to speak. It should have been about them not her.
