Survivor Time!

For 23 seasons Survivor has traveled around the world. Contestants have had to contend with unforgiving oceans, mysterious jungles and unbearable weather in their quest for the title of Sole Survivor and the million-dollar prize that goes along with it. As always, there will be twists to keep things interesting. This time, two tribes will compete against each other while coexisting on the same island. They will have to decide whether to work together or fend for their selves in the adventure of a lifetime.

As previously announced, the Official Survivor Recap Trilogy will make its triumphant return. Jamie and Mary Beth have signed on for another season of weekly satirical recaps.

Here is a list of the eighteen individuals who will be competing in the new season:

Alicia Rosa, 25, Chicago, IL, Special Ed Teacher

Two Tribes. One World. One Survivor.

Survivor: One World is season 24 of the award-winning reality show and will be the eighth for my yet-to-be awarded blog. To honor these milestones, I have decided to run a Survivor contest for all my Fellow Survivor Geeks. 

  
Contest Rules:

1.    Predict the Survivors who will make up the final three. Please use only full names as they appear in the list. No nicknames!
2.    As a tiebreaker, predict who will be voted off in the second episode. If know one picks the correct person for week two, whoever predicts the earliest one evicted after week one wins.
3.    If there is still a tie, the earliest entry wins.

To enter you must send me an email at vag57@wi.rr.com. All entries must be received no later than 7:00 pm CST on Wednesday, February 22, 2012. This gives everyone one full episode to form their opinions and time to do any research they might want to do.

Want to know what you’re playing for? Sounded like Jeff Probst, didn’t I?

The prizes are: an autographed copy of Some Kenosha Softball, an official Survivor: Pearl Islands buff and a Some Kenosha Softball cap.

First place will get their choice of the prizes with second place choosing next and third place will receive the remaining prize.

Hopefully this isn’t too complicated. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Pass the word, the more the merrier. Don’t forget to vote in the new poll – it’s about your favorite reality show!

Until next time…from the booth.
