If you’re like me, you’ve had some difficulty sleeping this summer because, from time to time, you’d wake up in a cold sweat thinking, “what is Survivor Blood v. Water?!?!? Dammit, CBS!?!?!? It’s something about families, but will it be all-stars or what??!?!?”
Finally, CBS has announced the cast and explained what it is. Former all-star cast members, like Rupert, Colton (who was nobody’s favorite), and Tina are back with girlfriends, wives, husbands, boyfriends, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, or in the case of Colton, with his fiancee. His gay fiancee. I’m assuming Colton’s fiancee is gay.
Not that it matters. Colton is horrible no matter what his sexual orientation.
So the premise, and question, becomes how do these pairs advance? It can’t last forever – unless they vote people off two at a time. But that would suck. It needs to be the exact same format and rules as regular Survivor, and if your husband or daughter gets voted off, so be it. Now you’re left to scramble and make new alliances with other pairs that have been split.
I love it. It adds an amazing twist. Think about that first week and that first tribal council? Someone’s going to be breaking down in sobbing tears. There will be “survivors guilt” happening on Survivor. Why didn’t they think of this sooner?
What’s that you say? Won’t they all just try and help their partner into the top-2 to ensure they’ll win? Ha! Sure, that’s their plan, but it can’t happen. Nobody is going to accidentally or purposely let a pair into the Top-3 at the end? Are you nuts?
It’s going to be a blood bath. Oh … a pun! Or maybe just a play on words. Either way …I need to splash some cold water on my face. I’m funny.
There’s only two problems …where are Rob (aka Boston Rob) and Amber? Second …why is September 18th so far away?
Heck, it’ll be hear soon enough. Can’t wait. LOVE this idea. Best …show …on …TV.
Don will be writing about and talking about @Survivor all season, and Tweeting about it at @spunkybean and @donkowalewski.
