Alriiiight, you guys ready to get to Season 36 of Survivor: Ghost Island? #TooScary

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, Charlie Murphy Brown made some #BigMoves to come away with a win in the final stretch of episodes and it's time to reclaim the title of Sole Survivor. Will the zombified remains of Marshall Mellow's back to back last place teams come to haunt the rest of us? Will your winner pick ghost into the background of every episode like FBI Joe from Koah Rong? It's about to get SPOOKY on this island folks.


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, have fun and don't get too friggen scared (haha like from Hollywood Handbook show podcast goof around time)


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.




https://www.youtube....OnCBS/playlists


And here is the official CBS 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. *WINNER PICK MUST BE SOMEONE FROM YOUR FINAL 3*
The ONLY 3 time Hollywood Handbook Pro-Version winner.

A nice boy.

Super behind this week, will be watching on Saturday and then will have the spreadsheet all updated and such probably Sunday!

Oh no! I missed the deadline. I have a new job where I can't hang out on these forums as much an this totally slipped my mind. As an unofficial thing can I have an all Donathan team? If I win i'll host a party for everyone at a local Red Lobster (airfare and lodging not included)

You can still make a team! You just won't get points for the first week!

Also, sorry that I'm behind with the scores from last week. My phone has shit the bed and it had all my notes on it for points and shit but I'm just going to rewatch last week and the new episode tonight or tomorrow and have everything up and on here for the weekend!
