Do you still watch Survivor or do you think it's over done at this point? I love the show still, although the physical challenges are more background for me. I prefer the social aspect.

I still watch sometimes, but it's not must-see TV anymore. Last night's episode was the first one I watched in full in a few weeks. It's nice to see the ladies take control of the game. Can you tell who has an inside track to F3 and has a good chance to win?

I do think it's overdone; I mean come on, it's up to 24 seasons and 12 years. But it's a cash cow and people still watch it, so it persists. It's easy to get burnt out on "Survivor" when the formula has never really changed much.

No, I'm generally terrible at figuring out who is going to be in the final three. I do watch for people who fly under the radar, though; usually at least one of the final 3 does that.

Yeah, Wylla, it seems in these past few seasons of Survivor, most of the castaways have been nothing but sheep, following one or two dominant parties. It's kind of annoying to watch people skate by!

The Survivor finale airing next Sunday has all female contestants vying for the grand prize. I believe this is the first time in Survivor history that has happened; I wonder what took so long. ;)

I am going to merg this thread with the existing Survor thread. We don't need more than one thread for the same season

I love Survivor! I've watched every season (minus a few episodes of the first one). My favorite players are still Boston Ron and Johnny Fairplay. Yes, I like the devious ones. This season has been pretty cool - having an all girl final 4! Many girls have said this in past seasons but then always caved when it was time to knock the guys out.

We have a winner!

Kim won the big prize last night as well as the Sprint popularity contest. Do you think she deserved to win?

What did you think of Colton's explanations for his behavior?

It would have been a shocker and an upset if anyone other than Kim won. It was obvious a few episodes ago that she would win which made for a boring, predictable end to an average season.

I'm not looking forward to another season of returning players.

I was pretty surprised that Kim picked Chelsea and Sabrina to go to the end with her. That was a risk on her part, and the only thing that made her win at that point slightly uncertain. I am also surprised that Chelsea received zero votes; she seemed more sincere with her answers at the final Tribal Council.

The little we got from the jury, I don't think they respected Chelsea as a player. Maybe they thought she rode Kim's coattails and her opening speech to try to separate herself from Kim hurt whatever chance she had to come in second. I also think Sabrina garnered a couple of votes her way due to the woe is me speech she made about being laid off.

I disagree. Chelsea still seemed pretty self-serving to me and rather annoying during the final tribal council. I don't think I would've brought Sabrina with me though, had I been Kim. I thought Sabrina had a really good shot of winning.

Sabrina would have been a greater threat to win if she had won more competitions. I was shocked to see how little respect the jury had for Chelsea.

I think this show is overdone but if the network still run this show then I guess people are still watching it. Maybe we are all trying to survive in our workplace, school, or even inside our homes that watching this show will help us a bit with our struggles.

They are going on the 20 their something season, they keep recycling the survivors which works as far as I know. So while old I won't say it is overdone

I like people who admit their mistakes and learn from it, Russell should stick to his new plan stay in the background. He is not a natural born leader anyway

RC should cut Abi loose before she blows up her game. That chick is a walking paranoia

What do you guys think of Angie and Malcolm? The environment on Survivor is not showmance friendly but it worked for Rob and Amber
