Survivor Season Rankings 2019 (19-1)

In all honesty, 2019 was the most terrible of terrible years for Survivor.

But it only got worse with all that went on in Island of the Idols. Due mainly to the actions of one player … Continue reading Survivor Season Rankings 2019 (19-1)

Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X Episode 3 Recap, Edgic and Analysis

efore we get started, this was the slowest and possibly worst episode of Survivor I have seen live since I started watching.
