SURVIVOR MICRONESIA – Watch a Preview of the Next Season of SURVIVIOR

     January 7, 2008

Can you believe CBS’s long running reality show “Survivor” is about to start its 16th season! While some might have stopped watching as it’s pretty much the same thing every year, the fact is the show is still a ratings bonanza for the network, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Also, every time the show feels a little boring or repetitive, they do something special to mix it up… like this upcoming season, which will have 10 of the favorites from previous seasons against 10 superfans of the show.

Personally, after looking over the so called “favorites,” I’m less than impressed. They’ve got no previous winners and almost all of them are veryrecent contestants. Also, they’ve got a few people from each season rather than one from each year. I think it would’ve been a lot better to make it so no one season had more than two people, as it gives an advantage to that group.

Anyway, the favorites are going to go against ten people who have watched every season of the show and knowit inside and out. It should be interesting.

So to help promote the return of the show on Thursday, Feb. 7, CBS has given me a short video that features the new contestants and some of the returning ones. If you’re a fan of the series, the video is the most they’ve revealed for what to expect next season.

And one last thing, Entertainment Weekly posted a cool photo of the returning favorites and I grabbed it for this article. It lists what season they were on and each person has a number for the photo.
