Survivor is back tonight with a two hour season premiere. This is the shows 34th season, and it’s 500th episode.
I can’t really explain my love for the series…because I say that I’m not a hardcore viewer, but as soon as I hear that iconic theme song I’m in it like I’m playing for a million.
Only recently did I start watching intently, but I’ve always known about Survivor…everyone does, either you have a betting pool at work, or you heard about the Richard Hatch situation in Borneo.
Even when I didn’t have television, my parents bought me the Survivor computer game and I got to simulate asking people if they were hiding jerky in their bags.
So this season is exciting for a few reasons, one being the theme: Game Changers.
20 previous contestants are returning to play because they contributed something to their season that no other play did, they advanced the game in a significant way.
Another reason I’m so excited about this season is because I’m learning the game, and yes, I realize that sounds super nerdy, but it makes the experience more enjoyable when you have an idea what the players are doing wrong, or right.
Hopefully you are just as excited as me, because you’re going to be hearing about it every Thursday (or Friday, sometimes I record episodes) for the rest of the season!
Here is the trailer for this season or Survivor.
