  • "Survivor: Cook Island" Cast + Twist
    Wednesday, August 23, 2006
    For the new season of CBS's hit competition show "Survivor", teams will be divided up by race now. There are four starting teams of five: African American, White, Latino, and Asian. The 13-series-long show's executive producer Mark Burnett stated "We're going to take some heat for it, but it's a great cast." Even with the flak, host Jeff Probst has my exact thought on it. He stated on Wednesday, "This is a game that starts very even. Everyone starts the same way with the same materials and the same shot: a 1-in-20 shot at a million." So same game, just a semi-interesting twist. It's not going to make me a watcher of the show on a regular basis or even for a whole show, but as a writer, I cannot wait to see the media feedback on this.

      This is a can of worms the producers of 'Survivor' hope will add controversy (which they hope will translate into ratings) but they may have misfired badly. Is this supposed to provide a window into whether one race is superior than another at back-stabbing or surviving without help? The editing will keep all racial slurs and uncomfortable fights out of view, but the fact the producers felt the need to tweak with the show's formula after last year's lowest-yet viewership will be maligned and questioned. CBS has apparently not learned a thing from last year's 'Amazing Race: Family Edition' debacle, which ended up hurting this once-great series (maybe permanently).

      If it gets all the outlets to talk about it... People will watch it... I'll stick with recording it on the DVR and watching it IF there is nothing good on at 3:00am... lol.

      As a Survivor fan from the start, I have recorded EVERY single episode, have every season on tape. I like this new twist. Controversial, but new.

      Also for those who never noticed, the most amount of minorities was 3 in the Pearl Islands (Sandra, Tijuana and that quitter Osten). Other than that, it would be just two black people.
