RHAP blogger, Sarah Freeman explains how, in Survivor, truth comes second to perception; it's on the latter that games are won or lost.
I’m talking movies that are a part of my soul, that make me feel good, or remind me of happy times in my life. The clips I will share will run parallel with each remaining Survivor player.
It’s rare that Jeff pushes a theme so forcefully so I was very pleased to see how his words were used during the challenge. Viewers are often left with the impression that the winner didn’t have to do a lot to get to the end but with Jeff’s words, we can be sure that this season’s winner will have been shown earning it, fighting through tough circumstances to get that title of Sole Survivor. So, let’s look once more at the players to see which are fighting to earn it.
This week I’m going to warn you now; you will need a Kleenex, because we are going with famous death scenes in cinema history.
We’ve made the case for Tyson’s win but this episode gave us other players to consider. Let’s see what case the editors have made for some of them.
Hold up, Bro. A new threat is on the rise.
I guess this is just "Lost" week on Robhasawebsite.com. Just know right now, if you never watched Lost you are going to be thoroughly confused and I won’t blame you if you bail at this point. My opinion on Lost is that through season 5, it was my all-time favorite show.
Despite all the twists introduced this season, we have been constantly reminded that this is still the same game. Playing too hard, too fast has proven to be wrong while making solid alliances and earning trust have worked very well.
If you know me at all, you know two things: (1) Survivor is my all-time favorite television show, and (2) Lost is my all-time favorite television show.
Whether you’re a Thief or a Fighter or a Wizard or whatever, you need to hit your Ninja Moment to win Survivor. You need to transform and become the best version of your weird little self if you’re to blow past the competition and get that sweet, sweet million-dollar title.
With the tribes swapped and the merge looming, allegiances are shifting all over the place.
The theme of this blog is the Godfather. The thing is, at this time we don’t have a Michael Corleone yet this season.
Since Jeff put it so directly in his final words to the players, we have to assume that the winner is being presented as a player that earned trust or is working hard to get it. Can we separate the players into those that have shown that they’ve earned trust and those that haven’t? We don’t have the best position to know exactly what is going on in the game on such a deep level but the story has given us a lot of material to use.
What makes the ongoing debate surrounding Survivor's Hidden Immunity Idols once more interesting and timely is that a new idol strategy altogether has emerged. In this post-modern era of Survivor, castaways are boycotting the idols completely.
