So, I PVR’d my way through the People’s Choice Awards… Taylor Lautner, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman were pretty much the best part… so I could catch the promised sneak peek at Survivor 20. For those who have been to Homorazzi before know, we trolled the depths of online forums like SurvivorSucks to bring you the rumored cast list back in August. And then in November, we trolled the same flame-filled pits of hell to bring you the tribe list. Now, CBS has finally confirmed the cast… and the spoilers were right!
Say hello to “HEROES” Rupert Boneham, James “J.T.” Thomas, Tom Westman, Colby Donaldson, James Clement, Stephenie LaGrossa, Amanda Kimmel, Jessica ‘Sugar’ Kiper, Cirie Fields and Candice Woodcock.
And then the “VILLAINS” Jerri Manthey, Parvati Shallow, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Courtney Yates, Danielle DiLorenzo, Rob “Boston Rob” Mariano, Randy Bailey, Tyson Apostol, Ben “Coach” Wade and Russell Hantz.
Once we finally got to the preview during the People‘s Choice Awards it was quickly crystal clear that this season is going to be epic! Jeff Probst came out on stage and said:
“Ten heroes going up against ten villains in a knock down, drag out brawl in survivor!”
Cue video with dramatic music (Wagner`s Flight of the Valkyries to be exact) and whirling chopper blades. Then Rupert says, `This is my third shot at proving to the world that I`m the best survivor`. Ummm no Rupert… this will be the third time you lose. Russell then claims HE is the best ever. James wants to compete against the best and Colby says he is now a decade older. But you know what folks… he is looking HOT. Parvati then tells us she feels like the heavyweight champ coming back to defend her title (which she won in Fans vs Favourites).
Ugh… and then Coach tells us he is going to slay everyone and trust no one. Hate him. Jerri finally owns up to her villainess self and claims she will embrace it. Jeff then welcomes them all to Survivor 20… where the tag line is no longer Outwit, Outplay, Outlast. It’s Return, Revenge, Redemption.
Bring it on!!! Oh… it`s already been brought`n!!!
