Default Reality Game Shows (Survivor, Big Brother, Amazing Race, etc...)

I love all three of these shows.

Is anyone else a fan? American versions or from other countries? Any other similar shows?

Survivor starts this week. Another season where they bring back former players. I understand why they do it, but I am quite sick of it.

I mean...Brandon Hantz? wtf?

First episode of Survivor - just seems so weird that some of these people are "favorites." Some of these people are not very memorable (Corinne) or remembered for something ridiculous (Francesca, Philip, Brandon, Erik). It's hard to want any of these people to win. Even Malcolm proved a bit of over-ratedness by blowing the immunity challenge when he had a lead.

I might struggle through this season. *sigh*

That's cool - I can understand why people would like that one and not the others. I think heard that this year's season of Big Brother is supposed to be a few weeks longer. Maybe we will get more houseguests

Agreed on all three points. I'm kind of sick of CBS recycling their players too.

Loved the first episode of The Amazing Race the other night. These teams seem like a lot of fun! I would have freaked out at the skydiving, and I love the sandcastle roadblock. I don't agree with voluntarily taking penalties, though. That was a crappy way to end it. However, they've set it up for there to be conflict over the second express pass. Should be interesting.

Second episode of Survivor this week = pretty lame ending. I understand wanting to vote off a weaker member, but why Allie? The foursome was a minority alliance anyways. I don't like when they don't have an actual reason and it's all too nonsensical.

Brandon's still an asshat. Enough said.

And at Malcolm trying not to smirk at Philip wile being given his secret agent name.

Second episode of TAR - I usually don't like the guy/guy teams they put on this show, but I like the hockey guys. They aren't the typical model/d-bag/horrible stereotyped pairs they usually cast. I always appreciate when a team is obviously going to come in last and be eliminated - but they let them complete the tasks anyways. I would hate the felling of not being able to finish. Even being last...I'm sure it would be an accomplishment.

That being said - you know you're going to be on the show, but to not expect water/heights/eating challenges is ridiculous. Prepare yourselves. Twins rightfully eliminated.

Survivor this past week - serious eye roll. Why do they hype up these tribal councils like something major is going to happen...like it's a "can't miss" event? That was the most boring result, given the options. Seriously, even though the girl practically shares the same name as me...I was like "Allie...who??"

Lame. Just...lame.

Continuting the Brandon watch - yep, still an asshat. Why did they even bring back this clown?

TAR last night - I know I may be in the minority with my opinion here, but I like the "To Be Conitued..." double legs of the race. I would rather have two of these per season instead of the usual one (and do away with one of the normal three non-elims).

Was nice to see the unexpected first place last night, even with the Express Pass. The Australia/New Zealand shows are always fun when they go there, too. Another reason I'd love to apply for this someday.

TAR this past Sunday - I seriously hope they submit this episode to whoever decides on the Emmys (I know there is a category for these shows). Wow, fantastic hour. From the father/son team (father on crutches) coming in first again to the cocky couple coming in last (still holding the Express Pass)...and the tasks they did were great. Monkeys, fruit arrangements, and surfboards! Hope the season continues like this

Survivor - thank goodness Brandon is gone. Bringing him back and sticking him together with Philip may sound like a good idea for entertainment, but that was just painful to watch. Ugh....cringeworthy. Hopefully the season will get better from here, because so far it's pretty much a dud.

TAR - sorry to see the father/son team have to quit. For once, I hope they actually do bring them back in the future. The cattyness on this show lately is unreal - I don't really understand the alliance thing on this show. It's not like Survivor or Big Brother where they actually vote. They can only...maybe share some information. Sooo lame.

Survivor - yeah, pick it up people. Y'all are boring me. This is NOT a good season at all.

TAR - shocked at last night's elimination. I thought they were a good team. I guess it only takes messing up once to lose, though.

I watch both Amazing Race and Survivor, not Big Brother though.

I quit watching Survivor US, this season is pitiful. Big Brother is the best! Ours is unique for the Houseguests voting each other out, as opposed to other countries where the housemates will all vote each other to be up for eviction and then the viewers vote them out. I watch Big Brother from US, Canada, Spain, UK, Phillipines, Australia and Brazil.

Never watched TAR though :/

Haven't posted here in awhile -

At least Survivor is starting to get interesting. Too bad that somehow I lost my season pass on the DVR (I had to go back and re-add it) and I missed the episode two weeks ago. I only realized it and caught it in the middle of last week's show. The funny thing is, I couldn't even tell who had gotten voted out on the episode I missed (and I haven't even cared enough to go back and look). I find it funny that all the Favorites are scheming to get rid of each other already. Strange, but pretty smart move by Malcolm at the tribal council....even though he didn't get any votes he got rid of someone else's idol. Hopefully the recent trend of the show getting better continues next week.

Silly turkeys.

TAR this week - not really surprised by the elimination. Chuck and Winona did a lot better than I thought they would, exceeding expectations. Getting down to the end pretty soon.

Survivor - it's a shame we had to wait until the past weeks to get some good episodes. Loved the triple immunity this week and loony Philip getting the boot. Funny, funny stuff.
