One of Survivor’s worst kept secrets is out of the bag, and know we can finally talk about it. For the first time ever us Survivor fans will get a chance to vote who we want to see back for a second chance. For the full list of 36 potential castaways can be found here: http://xfinity.comcast.net/blogs/tv/2015/05/06/‘survivor-second-chance’-invites-viewers-to-select-the-castaways/, but I’m about to give you my ten men and women I want back.
The Men: Jeff Varner, Andrew Savage, Terry Deitz, Shane Powers, Stephen Fishbach, Vytas Baskauskas, Spencer Bledsoe, Jeremy Collins, Mike Holloway, Joe Anglim.
I have a nice split going on here, five older seasons represented and five newer ones. The men was pretty easy. Jim Rice and Troyzan came close to making my list, if not just because I know they both want it so bad. Max, Keith and Woo could easily get on due to recency bias, but it’s not like their seasons already aren’t represented.
The Women: Kelly Wiglesworth, Kimmi Kappenberg, Teresa Cooper, Peih-Gee Law, Natalie Tenerelli, Sabrina Thompson, Abi-Maria Gomes, Ciera Eastin, Kass McQuillen, Shirin Oskooi.
Once again I couldn’t go past the four old school women. After that I locked in Kass, Ciera, and Shirin as they were the stand out females in their seasons. That left me with three more slots. Nat T is someone I really wanna see back after just re-watching Redemption Island. Abi needs to come back because I would want to see anyone from Philippines play again. The last pick I went with Sabrina only because I could see the first time around she had so much to give. I was close to giving my last pick to Stephanie Valencia, but if we get Natalie T, that means four people in total have retuned from Redemption Island, one of the shows worst season, while Thailand and Guatemala have only ever had one rep.
So what are you thoughts on the fan vote, and who are you gonna pick? Would love to hear thoughts in the comments below!
