Please note that the below is filled with spoilers, if for some reason you didn’t see this season yet and plan to watch it, do not continue reading.
Yeah, so I am about 4 years slow with this I know â€” but I literally just finished watching Survivor All Stars tonight. Survivor is uncategorically my all time favourite reality show, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it for the first time (season 9) and immediately got my hands on the previous season, but when I saw that it was an all stars, featuring people from the first 8 seasons I decided to try and get a hold of them all and watch them before all stars.
It took me 4 years to do it but I finally got there, I could have just gone through them all in a flash, but I have patience and I wanted to really enjoy them so I took it slowâ€¦only ever starting on a new season when there wasnâ€™t a current one on (and with 2 seasons per year thatâ€™s harder than it sounds) and only allowing 3 episodes per week maximum!
I did know before the season started that Amber won, Rob came second and that he was hated and she was accused of riding his coat tails all the way there. But I knew nothing else.
So all the twists and turns and drama had me totally hooked. Knowing that Rob and Amber did end up together it seemed obvious to me they were for real, and I couldnâ€™t see how people thought it was fake at the time. I also couldnâ€™t understand why Rob was so hated by the fans â€” until about half way through when even I got tired of his wise cracking and the way he and Amber seemed to get every thing handed to them on a plate and were untouchable.
Over all it was a freaking awesome season. Amazing.
