No, thread eh? Well, here we go then.
THE PROS: The grueling terrain was probably the best part about this series as the three teams had to brave their surroundings in the quest for the suitcase. There was a true Survival element to it unlike the constantly rewards fed contestents on SURVIVOR who pretty much just sit around the whole time plotting to back stab each other. The enviroment truly played a big role in the game when it managed to finally halt the near runaway sucess of the Blue Team who I thought for sure had it in the bag with the two Alpha Males.
THE CONS: Wait what? Three people have to SPLIT $100 (k). That's not gonna pay off a mortgage like the one woman had hoped for. Each person should get their own suitcase full of money. Then we have Dayna who was straight out of stereotype central casting. Why do the casting directors always have to go to that well. Same thing with the dude who had the "all show" gym muscles....that don't really lend much by way of swimming apparently.
Also I don't like that each week we have to get new teams. I think the two losing teams should move on to the next episode where one of them will either win or if they do not...the last place team should be eliminated...by week three then you would have one of the orginal teams vying for a last chance to win. If they muff that too.then they go home.
Fairly happy with the winners. I liked the NON-military guy. I can imagine it would be tough to be in a family where everyone else is in the service and you aren't.
Lastly was that hand sanitizer in the relief drop or in the supply drop? Either way that seems an odd thing to have in the jungle but the blonde waif was brilliant the way she employed it.
