Fallen Comrades Challenge

Interesting note from Mario Lanza’s book, When It Was Worth Playing For:

Fallen Comrades – challenge where the players are asked trivia questions about the other players’/jury members’ personal info

In Season 3, Survivor Africa, the producers made a mistake –

Q: Which contestant doesn’t have any piercings?”

Kim: Kelly (correct)

Lex: Lindsay (actually also correct, but is told it’s the wrong answer)

It seems that producers were unaware Lindsay also did not have any piercings, but this mistake cost Lex, and also somewhat, Big Tom, their games. It was theorized that Big Tom + Lex were paid off and/or guaranteed spots in Season 8, All Stars, because of this.

This also ended the Fallen Comrades challenge for good – except that it had already been filmed in Marquesas, so we do see it one last time in Season 4. (Although in my opinion, it probably would’ve ended soon anyway since in Season 4, Vecepia wrote down everyone’s personal info in preparation for this challenge – that’d get old very quickly + also completely takes the challenge out of it).

Powerful Moments

  • Ethan Zohn, winner of Survivor Africa – Season 3, returns for Winners at War – Season 40 + speaks about his blood cancer diagnosis + how funds raised through a charity he started actually helped find/develop the drug that saved his life. He says Survivor not only completely changed his life, it also saved it. This emotional scene on the Edge of Extinction demonstrates his true appreciation of life + shows his extreme passion + determination to survive both in + outside of the game.
  • When Boston Rob suddenly collapses near camp + explains his passion for the game to Jeff through tears “I feel like… it’s getting the best of me… and I love + respect it too much…to not play, you know? I’m gonna win this game, dude, watch this.” πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜‰
beginning at 2:19
  • Sabrina Thompson (teacher) thinking of her students: “I would love for the kids just to see this view––they see a few blocks of Brooklyn, that’s it + that’s all they aspire to see––so i hope they see that I took a chance + they’ll take a chance.”
Rudy Boesch gets voted out of All Stars + no one is happy about it/wanted to do it – he is an American hero + well-respected by his entire tribe. ❀️
basically ALL the loved ones visits––except Johnny Fairplay’s obviously… πŸ˜…πŸ˜­
