Survivor Starts Next Wednesday

Ok, so all the Survivor fans, probably already know that. LOL

I am so disappointed in the changes that Survivor has made to the show since it started, that I haven't watched a full season in a very long time.

I'm going to give this season a try again. I will blog my opinion about the show, maybe some Hollywood producer will see my disappointments and change some things back. Or maybe I will be pleasantly surprised to see the show has already made the changes.

I must say I'm pretty fed up with all the reality shows. I know they say they are cheaper to produce but come on Hollywood, New York you know you have the money. When I hear some "Snookie" is getting $30,000 an episode, I mean really that doesn't sound cheap to me. I could live on $30,000 a year. I prefer to live on more than that. But I'm just saying.

I'm a big CSI fan and I loved William Peterson (Grissom) but he left the show making like $600,000 an episode. Ray Ramano left his show making approx 1.8 million an episode. I don't begrudge anyone making a living, but really you could feed a country with 1.8 million. Put a cap on these actors salaries and give us real programming back!   Find the happy medium here producers, whoever is in charge. It's not rocket science.

Jeff Probst said he started Survivor because the human interaction and behavior intrigued him. I guess in that sense I am the same, because the three reality shows I watch or have watched more than once have a lot to do with emotional manipulation and are pretty much centered around human behavior. I will/have watched: Big Brother, Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab and Survivor.

Course, I also love watching shows on psycho's and serial killers. I just can't figure them out. They intrigue me. And no I'm neither a psycho or a serial killer nor do I want to be.

Maybe with the upcoming season we will get some new decent shows to watch, a couple look like they might have potential, like The Event, Outlaw, and Hawaii Five-0. I hope we get something that works out cause we lost some good ones last year when we lost 24, Doll House and Law & Order.


  1. Good blog :) I'm excited for the show to start. Like the idea of young v old.

    I'm going to have to look up the contestant.

  2. I need to look them up too. I've seen Jimmy Johnson and one other person can't remember who, but I remember thinking they don't need money either. I guess if all the old crew have money it would be more fair, but you know if they find out you don't need the money your gone. It's not like they aren't going to recognize Jimmie Johnson. I'll have to look and see who the others are.

    I like the young v old too. I think the wisdom of the older folks will surprise those young whipper snappers. LOL
