I honestly thought after reading this headline, he was going to say "myself and other producers" or "the advertisers". I don't know if the answer he gave is actually any better though lol. Condescending little b*tch.

Bleh, I don't really care. US Survivor has been going downhill for years. Jeff is a bad producer and fixates on just a few players who get way too much screen time while others are so invisible, there's a name for it, the purple edit. There's the odd good season, but mostly they're crap now and have all kinds of issues from short run time per episode, bad editing, bad casting, obsessed with dumb themes and too many tribe shuffles and finishing with a rushed finale in which there are usually 6 people remaining. It's just bad. You may not think much of the 6 person finale but honestly, it's so much better if they get down to 5, 4, 3 people and it focuses on them, rather than 15 minutes cramming a challenge and tribal in, rinse and repeat another 3 times. Those people get forgotten about by the time it ends.

People need to go and check out other versions as I am doing. I'd only be repeating myself but I think they're better in almost all areas. I highly recommend checking out Survivor South Africa: Philippines (see link below) and obviously Australian Survivor (currently season 5, episode 1 below).

Australian Survivor: Champions Vs Contenders - Episode 1

Survivor South Africa: Philippines - Episode 1 (full season on YouTube)
