Wow. – Jeff Probst
I’ve been waiting a long time for this. To be able to see absolute LEGENDS play this game together (mixed with some… er… not so legendary players) is going to be a wild experience. I mean, the mere fact that the season is called Game Changers is going to push everyone to play their hardest. Or, at least, that what I’m hoping for.
Let’s do a quick check-in with our player, shall we?
We have our legends: Cirie, JT, Malcolm, Ozzy, Sandra, and Tony. It’s been SEVEN (7) YEARS since we’ve seen the likes of Cirie, JT, and Sandra. I’m still in disbelief that I get to watch them compete together. The only problem is, with so few of them here it could mean an early demise.
We have our “secondary threats” next: Andrea, Aubry, Ciera, Michaela, and Zeke. A huge reason a majority of these players in this category is because of their recent return. Aubry JUST played the game of her life, Ciera JUST screamed “Make some moves people,” and Michaela/Zeke are huge question marks to every other player out there. I’m hoping these kids will be smart.
Then we have the “not a huge threat, but could become a threat with time” crew: Varner, Sarah, and Caleb. Varner is coming hot off Second Chances where his reputation spiked for being a sneaky player. Sarah had the world at her feet, but was shot down by Chaos. Caleb hasn’t even been to a tribal council! There’s potential here, but it could just fizzle out. I guess we can throw Tai in there, but he fits much better in the next section…
The “I’m not mad, but why are these people back?” section: Brad, Debbie, Hali, Sierra, and Troyzan. Listen, I’m all for these players pulling a ‘Wentworth’ and becoming the next big thing. I just don’t really see it in them.
But all in all, there’s a stellar group of players hitting the beach and I can’t wait to get started.
