So Richard Hatch just got released from prison last week and he thus took the opportunity to get his name back out there as far as Survivor is concerned. For one, Hatch claims that it was supposed to be him and not Rob Mariano who was to be cast on Redemption Island opposite Russell Hantz. Hatch claims that the court wouldnt allow him to compete again from going back to his original tax evasion charges. He also went on to say that he has plans for a big reality show that could be picked up eventually. On and on it goes.

My View: Hatch wants so bad to return to Survivor and I actually would love to see it. No doubt it has been mentioned in the past about a possible Hatch-Hantz battle but there is no way he was supposed to be in there instead of Boston Rob in Redemption Island. That was a rivalry that was fresh and needed to be taken advantage of.


Just trying to clean up some odds and ends during my absence when I was writing my new Survivor book. I will start posting all of the Ponderosa videos from South Pacific. Good stuff.

Survivor: South Pacific - Survivor: One World - New Season

Since I wasnt around for most of the just completed season Survivor South Pacific, that doesnt mean I wasnt paying attention. Now that the show has wrapped, I wanted to share some random thoughts on it, especially with regards to Ozzy and Coach who of course were the two retunrees.

-First of all, Ozzy comes out of this smelling like roses as he clearly was the star of the season and was the slam dunk winner if he made the finale. Instead he came painfully close by losing the last challenge which no doubt was a bummer. As much of a blow as that was, Ozzy probably already got over it as he clearly lives his life with a care-free attitude that is infectious. His last chance at playing Survivor was an overall success as he continued to show he is without peer when it comes to winning challenges and he actually did well on the stratgic side as well. Nothing bad could be said about his game. Of course I thought we could be looking at a JT moment when he gave his idol to Cochrana and volunteered to go to Redemption Island but luckily it all worked out for him. He will be missed.

-As far as Coach is concerned, he did much better obviously this time round than in the disaster that was Heroes VS. Villains but he screwed up royally at the end. He should have kept either Brandon or Rick around and brought them to the finale and booted Sophie. He would have won the million dollars over Brandon, Rick, and Albert but of course he stayed with Sophie and he paid for it. By voting out Rick and Brandon, he poisoned the jury and made himself look bad. Simple as that. He had the storybook ending right in his hands until he ruined it at the very end with some terrible moves of which I am sure he will regret later on.

-In talking about Sophie, she was one of the more boring winners in Survivor history. It was a situation where the jury gave it to the lesser of three evils. Simple as that. Yes she won three immunity challenges which was nice but she did little else except get on the nerves of the other tribe members. She will quickly be forgotten as a past champion.

There you go. Thats all I wanted to say. The season was pretty boring until the end and other than Cochran, Ozzy, Brandon, and Coach, the cast was lame. Lets hope things will be a bit better in the terribly named Survivor One World but I am not holding my breath since it will be men versus women again which I abhore. Let me know what you think.


Hey everyone. Dont worry I didnt die. I took a little break from the website and it was due to Survivor. During the time I was away, I wrote what I think is the best Survivor book ever written which will soon be available for purchase through Amazon and other outlets. I submitted a manuscript which was approved and proceeded to get to work on the rest of the piece. The book will take an in-depth look at Survivor from yours truly's point of view and focus in on some of the best plaeyrs to ever play the game. I will devote chapters to some of the following players:

Russell Hantz
Rob Mariano
Rob Cesternino
Rupert Boneham
Tom Westman
Ozzy Luzth
Parvati Shallow
Sandra Diaz-Twine
Richard Hatch]
Rudy Boesch

and many, many more. Also included will be a closer look at Jeff Probst, Survivor gimmicks over the years, top ten lists with various categories such as strongest, smartest, best at challenges, in Survivor history, along with an in-depth look at some of the more devastating injuries to hit contestants of the show. Its one big critical analysis on everything and anything about Survivor and I hope you enjoy it. Ask me any questions you might have and start checking back like usual since I will be back to my old tricks on here going forward.
