Survivor Pool…

I tried this for Amazing Race – only all you people were party poopers 😥 So I’m going to try again…

As you may (or may not) know, Survivor Palau starts on Thursday night. So that gives you two days to get your picks (3) in for who you think will win. I’ve even made it easy for you – in the extended entry I’ve shared with you pics of all the contestants along with a few details about them. You don’t even have to watch the show to participate! Humour me, afterall I went to all this trouble to display all the “Survivors”…

So here’s how this will work – pick your 3 “Survivors” and give me their name through your comment. The last 10 Survivors voted off of Palau will receive points. For example if your survivor is the show winner, you will recieve 10 points, if your survivor is 2nd place, you will receive 9 points:

Place Points
1 – 10
2 – 9
3 – 8
4 – 7
5 – 6
6 – 5
7 – 4
8 – 3
9 – 2
10 – 1

And the winner? They’ll get a really cool Cosmo Prize…

I’ll go first – my picks are (drumroll please)…..

Kim – ’cause that’s my best friend’s name
Tom – ’cause he’s a runner
Janu – ’cause she’s a Cancer survivor

  1. I’m in. I love Survivor and I didn’t know that it was to start on Thursday. Thanks for letting us know.

    Lori
    I post my picks tomorrow.

  2. GRR I lost my comment because I didn’t know email was required. I have a habit of not leaving it. That’s the thing that annoys me about WordPress, if there’s an error with your comment then you lose it. But of course, the good outweighs the bad and I still use it. 😀

    Anyway, I was saying that I hope you get lotsa participants for your contest, I would but I honestly don’t watch the show. 😳

    And I said YAY your are halfway there! Nesting yet?
    And I said (lol) that your Gravatar has to be the cutest one I’ve seen yet. 😀

  3. My Survivor picks will be Jennifer, Ian and Stephenie. Blind picks of course, but we’ll see how I do after the first episode. …. already set to save to my PVR!!

  4. ahhh, I wanna play, but I have a hard time choosing before seeing the first episode…I like to see what the personalities are, but for you girl I’ll go blind.
    1.Gregg
    2.Ashlee
    3.Bobby Jon

  5. As anyone who watches this show religiously, which ever sex lost last season will win this season. (At least that has been the way for all the past seasons. I would like to see this broken, only because it is getting predictable.) Also Therefore, my pics for the winner are Ashlee, Jennifer, and Janu.

    I must say though, that there are a lot of handsome men on here, and I hope they stay around for as long as possible. 😳

  6. OK, I’ve been keeping quiet because of my NINdifference awaiting a new post for the past few days… but you caught me in the right frame of mind.

    Honestly Survivor & shows of the like belonging to the “Reality TV” craze not only condone; but promote coercion, NINtimidation, manipulation, derision, lies, and on and on…

    In all honesty, I would vote the the person who has had enuf of this behaviour and beats the living hell out of all those who tread upon afore the mentioned paths.

    Yes, a characteristic of the show to an extent; but well deserved nevertheless.

    2wo cents Marie, not 2B taken personally.
