Survivor Recap: Our Hometown Player
Survivor is back! We are on the 25th season of the hit reality show that catapulted competition-reality shows to the primetime. This season is like no other; tribes are separated into 3 tribes of 6 people. Each tribe has a returning player that was taken out of the game from a medical evacuation. Jonathon Penner of Cook Islands and Micronesia, Russell Swan from Samoa and Michael Skupin from Australian Outback are back. Skupin made TV GOLD when he fell into the fire in his original season. I can still remember watching him fall and then seeing dead skin covering his hands as he stands in the ocean. Jeff tells the castaways which tribes they are on and that they have 90 seconds to gather as much resources off the ship as possible. The tribes gathered fruit, wood, ropes and chickens. Well, they tried their hardest to kill those poor chicken as they tossed them into a cage then throw it in the water. Note: they didn’t intentionally try to kill the chickens but carelessness could lead to PETA calling.
