I apologize for being unclear. I really liked Worlds Apart, mostly due to the enjoyable characters. I felt that the Will and Shirin conflict was part of why some people didn't like it. I agree that it shouldn't have played a role in whether the season is good or bad, but considering it apparently was a big enough deal to bring up in the reunion, I feel that it may color some perceptions of the season.

That, and I've found Dan tends to be one of those characters that is either quite liked, or quite disliked. Considering how much screentime he had, you could argue that would influence one's opinion of the season.

Then again, I only started watching Survivor with South Pacific, although I've seen all but 2 seasons as of now, so I'm not quite as in touch with how fans truly feel compared to, say, Mario.

I'm in the process of rewatching it right now and it's totally renewed my love for that season (and Rodney.) The whole Will/Shirin storyline- it's so minor, I don't see how you could make that argument for it being a bad season. There are arguments every season. That's like saying Cagayan is a bad season because of one argument between Lindsey and Trish. Or Marquesas is bad because of the argument between John and Rob/Sean. It's an invalid argument.

Yeah but the Will/Shirin part is just one minor storyline in the season. It doesn't really even factor into anything other than part of one episode.

I think part of the reason Worlds Apart has a bad rap is how much it was hyped up by Jeff leading up to it. That, and...the Will/Shirin conflict was REALLY ugly.

Totally agree. I don't understand why Worlds Apart has such a bad rep. Between Rodney, Dan, Jenn, Hali, and Vince it's one of the funniest seasons out there. I think (and hope) as time goes on people will do more of a 180 on it and maybe bring it some more love.

Zach I agree, Worlds Apart are my favorite entries. The next one will be about Jenn, because it is about time I start to feature her.

Andy my thoughts on Phillip are that he really isn't that bad. I thought he made Redemption Island, he was the star of most of that season. Yeah he fizzled out at the end but for at least half the season he was a lot of fun. And then in Caramoan he was actually a pretty good player who probably would have won had he not been blindsided when he was. So I think he mostly gets a bad rap. It doesn't mean I ever need to see him again, but really he was a pretty major character during a pretty bleak time for Survivor. So I think he should get more credit than he does.

Love the new entry. And can't wait for the next one, Worlds Apart entries are always promising.

New entry- Great. I'm one of those Phillip lovers, who thinks that he is one of the greatest things to happen to the show since Heroes vs Villains (cause not many other great things have happened) along with Tony and Rodney. Since you never really mentioned your stance in the article, what are your thoughts on Phillip?

And here's a video in case you wanted to see him in, as JP would call it, "solitaire".

Loving the newest addition to the countdown. Just imagine if they actually did do what they did with Phillip to Coach way back in Tocantins.

Also, I noticed that you had mentioned John Palyok as a great "could-have-been" character. I was watching this old reality show called Solitary, and lo and behold, he pops up in cell #9. Not sure if you knew already, but it was great finding him somewhere else.

That's a big oopsie about Stacey. A lot of the Redemption Island details roll into one in my memory.

-----------------------

A new entry, yay!

It's about Phillip, boo.

FORMER FEDERAL AGENT? yay! I wonder if the producers know the truth - surely everyone cast has a background check done on them?

A shout-out to Debbie, squeal!
PART-TIME MODEL

Shapeshifting to Cydney, LOL

NATALIE - Nadiya?, ha! One should come back and pretend to be the other.

The new entry will be up in a couple of hours. It's a tribute to the editors doing their "Former Federal Agent?" Phillip joke.

Interesting. I just read an article from a couple days ago. Apparently, Sierra Dawn Thomas was not initially one of the castaways for Game Changers, but Natalie Anderson backed out at the last minute, and Sierra was brought in as an alternate.

I'm still confused about how Sierra Dawn Thomas was an alternate for Game Changers to begin with, but at least they had a more fitting choice initially.

Stacey was in South Pacific not Redemption Island. I'm personally hoping it's the "I faked ya" moment with Ralph, and Phillips comments afterwards but I also feel that should be higher on the list. Could be a Phillip character entry.
