Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains - "It's Getting the Best of Me" Review

The fun of doing an All-Stars season is that the show and viewer can jump in right away - we don't need to waste time getting to know these people, because we've already seen them play. Sure enough, two episodes in, and there is already a ton of drama going on in Heroes vs. Villains, as these very strong personalities play off one another.

Let me just saw how incredibly relieved I am to see Boston Rob is okay! He is too good a player and way too interesting to watch to be taken out so quickly for medical reasons - it would have been a real loss to the show, and I think it's evident Probst felt that too, based on how much he was reinforcing with the medical team that Rob was not nearly as bad off as he initially looked, after he passed out.

As he did in Chapera during All-Stars, Rob has turned into the rock star of his tribe, doing all the work and proving to be the driving force behind the team in the challenges. It's so funny to once again see the rest of his tribe react with awe and respect to the guy, given that they know both his skills and how dangerous he is. I still fear he's on borrowed time, simply because it seems impossible that a group of experienced contestants won't still remind themselves that he's a huge threat and get rid of him. But this is Rob, and he works magic, so who knows?
