Wednesday, September 15, 2010: Survivor: Nicaragua

Wednesday, September 15, 2010: <I>Survivor: Nicaragua</I>

It's a new season of Survivor and for the first time in a year we're not subjected to Russell Hantz. It's a bonus. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if he found a way to worm his way into the reunion somehow. Just sitting around crying and proclaiming himself the ultimate ruler of the world or whatever. But Russell aside, there are a couple of actual things about this season that are worth noting before it even gets underway. It is on Wednesdays instead of Thursdays, they have their first actual real-life celebrity in Jimmy Johnson and they are splitting up the teams into old vs. young.

As someone who has been watching this show since minute one, I'm curious to see how people react to Jimmy Johnson. Will they vote him out immediately because he doesn't need the cash? Will they keep him around knowing that people won't want to award him money at the end? Will they be awestruck and not consider him an actual player? Will his status as a legendary coach make him the immediate choice for a tribe leader? Will he actually do work and starve himself?

The older vs. younger player thing doesn't interest me quite as much, but it does mean that there will be more than one or two people over 40 and not all just gym bodied twenty somethings, so that's an interesting dynamic. As for it being on Wednesdays, I'm thrilled. Wednesdays are a much lighter day for me, DVR-wise, so this might actually be an improvement. I'm cautiously optimistic about this new season. Go figure.

The Nicaragua edition of Probst and his dimples begins tonight at 8 PM on CBS.
