Alriiiight, you guys ready to get to Season 35 of Survivor: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers!?

What an awful name for a season but hey, Survivor is back this coming Wednesday and that means it's time to start picking our fantasy teams! Once again this year teams may be picked before OR after the premiere. The catch being that if you pick a team after the episode airs, any points a castaway accumulates during the premiere will NOT count towards your final total whereas choosing your team beforehand will earn you full points. -- It's a high risk/reward game.

Last season, SaltPeanuts proved to be a GAMECHANGER and smashed everyone in the fantasy league, running away with the lead in week 4 and holding tight all the way through. Time to see if someone new will hustle their way up to the top and claim the mantle of sole fantasy league Survivor!


As always, I will keep the leaderboard updated on the google doc and here in the thread.

Here is the link to the scoring sheet: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

And the spreadsheet where the scores are kept: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

I'll post the template to pick your squad in a seperate post below. Good luck and have fun! Let's hope this season is a good'un!


PRE-PREMIERE PICK RESOURCES:
If you're looking to choose your team pre-premiere here is a link to a video of Probst assessing the cast that you can get some impressions from and draw conclusions based off personalities as well as a playlist with full in-depth castaway interviews.

And here is a page with interviews for every contestant and a Reddit link with a slew of pre game interviews and clips.

Here is your form to pick your team!

Challenge Beast: Someone who will prove his or her challenge prowess.
The Strategist: Player who will show the greatest strategic aptitude.
The Black Widow AKA the Parvati Award: This is a female player who might be underrated or not so front-of-mind and can therefore strategically sneak and blindside her way to the top.
The Cutthroat: A player who will set out aiming to lie, cheat and steal their way to the million dollar prize no matter what it costs.
The Old Schooler/ Loyalist: A player who will play the less strategic "old school survivor" mindset or someone who will be unwavering in their loyalty to their alliance.
Under The Radar: Someone entering Survivor aiming to play an undetectable game.
Wildcard: A player who is completely unpredictable in the game
Bench Player: A bonus player you like or think will earn you points.


Final 3 Prediction: The 3 players who will make it to the final.
Winner Pick: The player who will win this season.
The ONLY 3 time Hollywood Handbook Pro-Version winner.

A nice boy.

Challenge Beast: JP i think pro athletes weirdly tend to be a little lazy on survivor or possibly they just have so much muscle they don't have the fuel they need to keep it all going, but a big firefighter guy is probably going to want to give his all for the team
The Strategist: Dr Mike only because he's basically going to have to be a good strategist if he wants to stay in the game
The Black Widow AKA the Parvati Award: Desi not just for the obvious dumb joke reason but idk i kind of got this sense in the video i watched
The Cutthroat: Joe i never trust a PO
The Old Schooler/ Loyalist: Devon
Under The Radar: Chrissy idk no real reason
Wildcard: Ryan this dude looks like a little imp like my man Jericho in Survivor AU
Bench Player: Jessica this babe looks like she could eat my lunch and hell i could use to skip a meal hehe


Final 3 Prediction: Ryan. Desi. Roark.
Winner Pick: Roark but you may ask, why Roark, greggy? here's why: Posted Image roark is the one representing me and my ideals/beliefs. she has what it takes to win this thing. gotta go with the podcast listener baby

Here are my Hookers, Handjobbers and Hussies

Challenge Beast: Cole. This dude is like the hunkiest hunk I've ever seen
The Strategist: Chrissy. This lady has it going on and I think a lot of people are going to underestimate her.
The Black Widow: Jessica. She compared herself to Andrea and I like Andrea and she's cute to boot so sure
The Cutthroat: Patrick. Never trust a ginger
The Old Schooler/ Loyalist: Alan. Athletic, seems sharp, affable. V well rounded but seems like a dude that will form an alliance day 1 and just be ride or die to the end with it.
Under The Radar: Desi. Hachi machi! What a mega babe! She seems TOO good so I'm sure she'll be first out.
Wildcard: Ryan. What is this little freak up to?! I get the feeling he might flame out quickly but here's hoping he runs deep!
Bench Player: Ben


Final 3 Prediction: Chrissy, Alan, Roark

Winner Pick: Chrissy
The ONLY 3 time Hollywood Handbook Pro-Version winner.

It's 2017 and Jeff Probst has had enough of the nerds and awkwards dominating Survivor storylines. The Davids and Cochrans and Aubreys and Adams and Hannahs. So I'm predicting a season dominated by the bigger players. The alpha girls and guys getting our friend Probst all hot and bothered in the challenges. He's been such a good boy ---- he deserves this !

Here are my picks which you know will be very good and right and I definitely won't be in last place again:

Challenge Beast: JP
The Strategist: Roarke
The Black Widow: Desi
The Cutthroat: Ali
The Old Schooler/ Loyalist: Chrissy
Under The Radar: Alan
Wildcard: Ryan
Bench Player: Devon

Final 3 Prediction: Katrina, Alan, JP
Winner Pick: JP

I'll change my winner to JP then, I can't get rid of him.
JJPI without JP is just a Jack Investigator without his Johnson Private.

ok i dont plan on making a big production of notes this season but if i see a prime gif i gotta go for it you know?

watching jeff probst break down the shitty theme for this season made my skin crawl

Posted Image

dr mike immediately being bullied, as well he should be if we're being honest

i.imgtc.com/S9o0rP6.gif

oh hell yeah ryan got that advantage, what a fun super idol

lol alan wtf. could be a good way to sneakily see dicks though and if thats the case the man should have been on hustler tribe

oh its really cool the producers gave the idol to her in secret just by dropping it in her bag without saying anything, like maybe thats bullshit but a fun detail

RIP the advantage, would love to see a return of that one

alan was a fun character on this ep, wish i had picked him up somewhere on the team.

PRO ep on the PROBST scale, little bit boring tbh

"through wilderness training and rock climbing, its second nature for me to enable people and help them accomplish their goals" is one of the most bullshit things anyone has ever said that has actually managed to touch me with its sincerity, good job cole

i cant wait for these tribes to be merged/made in to 2 tribes, i hate hearing jeff calling the tribes hustlers and heros and healers

cool snakes

PROB ep i guess, the idol stuff early on was fun

Chrissy doing real well Joe -- she's going at least far enough to meet Ryan so he can finally tell her about how he saved her with his idol and how he is in fact a Hero not a hustler or whatever it is he is imagining will happen lol.
Here's hoping that JP gets his head in the game cuz I need them points !
