Survivor 22 Rumor: Boston Rob vs Russell

Posted by Maki On Saturday, August 14, 2010 2 comments

Survivor 21 Nicaragua has yet to start but we already have rumors on how Survivor 22 will be played. According to sources, Survivor 20 rivals, Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz, will lead the opposing tribes composed of new players. The ‘stars’ of the show, Boston Rob and Russell, may be acting as “mentors” who are immune until the merge, at which point they become real players and can be voted off.

Survivor 22 will once again be filmed in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua – the same location as Survivor 21. This is part of Survivor’s new back-to-back filming schedule, designed to cut production costs.

The Russell vs. Boston Rob Rivalry
It was not until Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, which aired from February to May 2010, that the rivalry between Russell and Rob was ignited. Almost immediately, the tribe of Villains was divided into two factions: those who followed Russell (Parvati and Danielle) and those who followed Rob (Sandra, Courtney, and Tyson). In Episode 6, Boston Rob won a crucial Immunity and kept himself safe while his ally Tyson was blindsided when Russell gave his hidden Immunity Idol to Parvati. Then, in the following episode, Jerri joined Russell’s alliance and helped vote Rob out of the game.

Jeff Probst Comments on the Twist
In an IGN interview with Survivor host Jeff Probst on August 6, 2010, Probst indicated that he “would love to see Rob and Russell go head-to-head or represent different tribes, something like that,” without revealing that this theme was actually being used for Survivor 22. Probst also stated that, although both Russell and Rob were considered Villains on their original seasons and on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, if such a match-up were to occur, Boston Rob would become the hero against Russell.

CBS has yet to confirm the theme for Season 22. An official announcement is not expected until the finale of Survivor: Nicaragua in December 2010.

Fans’ Reaction to Russell vs. Rob
The reaction to the concept from diehard fans has been almost universally negative, and according to ‘missyae,’ the show will go on. Survivor continues to be watched by an average of 13 million viewers per week and those fans who voice their opinions on on-line message boards represent only a small portion of Survivor’s total audience. In fact, Russell Hantz was the recipient of the Sprint Player of the Season award, worth $100,000, for both of the seasons in which he played – a prize that is awarded by a fan vote. So while diehard fans may be opposed to the idea, it is likely that there are just as many Survivor watchers who will embrace the concept.

So what do you think about Survivor 22?

What kind of fucking shit is this?! I'm a huge Rob fan, but really CBS, isn't 4 times enough?! I'm not hating on Rob for coming back because he'd be an idiot to pass it up, but CBS needs to move the fuck on!!! This twist is worse than the sab!!! Has Survivor finally jumped the shark?!?!?! With this bullshit, it sure looks that way..

Survivor has "survived" (no pun intended) for so long because they have hardly swayed from their original format. It worked then, it works not and its always good tv. I am not a huge fan of the "gimmicks" (old vs young, ethnic groups etc). I know that BR and Russell have been fan favorites but stop milking it!! Especially because you dont HAVE TO!! Survivor will be good with or without the gimmicks. 16 people no one ever heard of before thrown into a jungle to compete for a million bucks works for me.
