    S01:E08: Semi Finals: Double Unmasking

    I don't have an issue with this- yet. I think it depends on what it is that he did. I'm just going along with everyone's guess that it's T-Pain. I recognize the name but have no idea what he looks like or what he sang/rapped. I don't know anything about his history (haven't cared enough to google). If he did something that tainted his image but wasn't actually that bad, then I don't think he needs to be apologetic (fans can be very fickle, so it may not be anything bad). But, if it were, say, Chris Brown- then I would absolutely agree with this statement. Joey was throwing out every single boyband reference he could to throw us off, I think. Didn't work for me. I knew it was him pretty much from the beginning from the clues. Yeah, it was Joel McHale and I'm pretty sure he leaned over and said it to Ken. I don't think he really said it very loudly at the time, but Hailey, Idaho was mentioned again in a future episode he wasn't on. So, continually ignoring that was just downright dumb. I think they don't really coach the guest judges on what to say or not since they've been pretty candid. But, I fully suspect the regular judges are told to mostly say stupid guesses with a real guess thrown in occasionally. Yes.

    38:E01 It Smells Like Success

    Agreed. I hate swimming and I was in the Coast Guard lol. People always ask my why I joined the Coast Guard since I hate water. Luckily, I was only stationed on land. If I ever went on Survivor I would suck at swimming challenges. I think that's marginalizing what she did, though. I think it was partly that she moved their stuff but then also because she was just so damned argumentative. Other tribe members were trying to answer Jeff's questions and she just wouldn't let them finish without butting in and telling them they were wrong. Can you imagine living with that 24/7? Ugh. Or, this.

    38:E01 It Smells Like Success

    Castaways hover on the “Edge of Extinction” in an all-new twist, and four returning players attempt to bond with their new tribemates. Also, castaways tackle a giant puzzle in their first immunity challenge of the season.

    The Masked Singer

    I didn't notice it with Peacock, but I DID notice it with the Raven. It didn't sound like there was any voice modulation on Rikki at all.

    S04.E13: I Have to Get Out

    I agree, but I'm still annoyed that they even brought Greg back. If Santino wasn't available they should've scratched the storyline since they're not endgame anyway.

    This is where you discuss the previews at the end of the episode and the speculations resulting from them. There is no preview talk in the episode threads and there are no future spoilers (past the what the previews show) in this thread.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: Because I never quit.

    S38 Ron Clark

    Meet Ron Age: 46 Hometown: Chocowinity, North Carolina Current Residence: Atlanta Occupation: Teacher, Ron Clark Academy Personal Claim to Fame: I co-founded the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, where we teach using passion, innovative strategies and creative methods to inspire all of our students to reach success. Each week, we also train educators from around the world so that they can incorporate our strategies in their schools. To date, over 50,000 educators have visited RCA to receive training, and we are starting a revolution! I hope that doesn’t overshadow the fact that back in 2002 I won the showcase showdown on The Price is Right. Hobbies: Life doesn’t get any better than giving my Chow Chow pups belly rubs! I also get a kick out of watching the roulette ball spin and land in the single zero, but I think my main hobby is surprising people by making really unique moments for them. When I was a kid, my family didn’t have money, but my parents put a lot of effort into making simple moments magical. I now try to follow in their footsteps and try my best to do that for my students, friends and family. I also like telling stories and participating in anything competitive such as poker, pool, trivia, basketball, tennis and “Bamboo Stick Speller,” a game my friends and I created. Pet Peeves: I’m a sore loser. Like really sore. I’ll stew over a Monopoly loss for weeks, wondering, “just where did I go wrong.” Also, I hate when people slurp food (like soup) or smack chew gum. People, we can hear you! If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A recording device that I could leave under the shelter so that I would always be in the know. A returning player that others would focus on voting out so that the target wouldn’t be on me. My wedding ring, so I’d be inspired by the love waiting for me at home. SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I’m a compassionate person, but everyone who knows me well says that during competitions I turn into a villain. I also overanalyze everything. For those reasons, I don’t think there’s a past contestant that is a perfect fit for me, but I think my game play will be most like Spencer Bledsoe.

    S38 Victoria Baamonde

    Meet Victoria Age: 23 Hometown: Bronx, New York Current Residence: Bronx, New York Occupation: Waitress Personal Claim to Fame: I was valedictorian of my college with a perfect 4.0 and I bring it up in conversation as much as possible. Hobbies: Hiking, painting/visual art, cooking. Pet Peeves: Slow walkers, leaving cabinets open, my guinea pig who I named Peeve, and when customers don’t read the menu and then ask dumb questions like, “are there meatballs in the meatball sauce?” If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A notebook and pencil (this is one item) to keep track of all my thoughts and to sketch. Baby Pillow: this tiny pillow I’ve had since I was born that I sleep with every night. A guitar: No clue how to play one, but I figure I’ll have lots of time to learn. SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I relate to Malcolm Freberg. If you read his Wiki fandom page, he’s described as “likeable, strategic, and excels at challenges” and I’d like to think I am the same way.

    Meet Rick Age: 33 Hometown: Blacksburg, Virginia Current Residence: Macon, Georgia Occupation: Morning News Anchor Personal Claim to Fame: My kids, BUT one time there was a cat stuck high (very high) up in a tree for days and may have died but I did a news story and contacted folks and got him rescued. So I have that going for me. Hobbies: Basketball, hiking/playing with the kids and dogs, and video games. Pet Peeves: Not taking ownership of actions, over explainers, waiting in line, and people not using coasters. If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? The Stand by Stephen King. A great book and long so it’ll entertain me for a while. A Lego figure. My son always asks me to keep his Lego men safe. A picture of my family, dogs and cats included. SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Cochran. He’s a strategist. He was also a genuinely nice guy but he was there to PLAY!

    S38 Eric Hafemann

    Meet Eric Age: 34 Hometown: Chicago Current Residence: Livermore, California Occupation: Firefighter Personal Claim to Fame: I am extremely proud of my profession. It was a lot of hard work and took some serious grit to get where I am. I’m proud of that, and what I am now a part of. Good people! I’m also very proud of being a good dad! I had one of the best father’s on the planet, so I have big shoes to fill. So far…it’s going pretty good. Hobbies: Backpacking, basketball, wood working, and pretty much anything outside. Pet Peeves: My biggest pet peeve is people taking themselves too seriously…come on, relax people. I try to remember that 99.9 percent of the time I am NOT the smartest, coolest, most interesting, deserving, or important person in the room. If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A picture of my family to remind me why I am playing and why I need to play so hard. A book – something to feed my mind and something to keep me grounded. Most likely my Bible. A surfboard. SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: I have to say Tony Vlachos. I don’t think we are very similar people but I think we agree fundamentally on how you play the game. Tony was a grinder from start to finish. He understands that EVERY piece of the game, EVERY moment, EVERY situation has value and can be used to influence your outcome. I think most players only identify the most obvious parts of Survivor as pieces on the board, when in reality, every last detail is a movable piece. It’s going to be my goal to be “ON” all the time in the game. In other words, to never stop playing. I plan to work angles everywhere and with everyone…all the time. I think this is how you win, by paying attention to the details and then playing off of them. Tony did that I think, and so will I. https://ew.com/tv/survivor-edge-of-extinction-cast-gallery/#eric-hafemann
