    CBS announced today that Survivor Pearl Islands will premiere on Thursday 9/18, a week earlier than the rest of the schedule, like it did last year. No word on whether it will be 90 minutes like The Amazon premiere was.

    Another interesting tidbit is Jeff probst was on E! last week and said 2 big events had already happened in the first 19 days that have never happened before on Survivor. No clues, of course. Any guesses?

    Maybe a huge storm (hurricane, monsoon, tornado..) or a hookup between 2 castaways?

    Maybe that there are more than 2 black people on the show? Maybe that someone had practiced making fire before they left for the island? [​IMG]

    If the first season people had thought of that, they could have lasted off Rich for the whole season!

    When did this start taping? If it was a hurricane, you could always check the NHC site.

    Edit: It was not a hurricane, none in that area this season.
    My prediction on one of the major events: someone quit.
    Just a guess though, not backed by any fact.

    I'm big on the cannibalism theory, how about a revolt against their oppressors? Literal war between the tribes?

    You may not be far off Jeff. Mark Burnett has stated that the show would play off of the theme of piracy alot, due to the location's history of piracy.

    One of the events could have been what Jeff Probst stated, that this time if you lost a reward challenge, your team was punished somehow.

    Maybe the people that are voted off get sent to Paradise Hotel. [​IMG]

    Heh, I am also going to go ahead and agree with the cannbalism theory.

    Maybe they reveal "Dirty Little Secrets" about the tribe members and have that polygraph guy from Meet My Folks come down. [​IMG]

    Maybe they actually checked out the contestants well enough that there won't be a Smoking Gun story about one of them this time. [​IMG]

    I think they should make some sort of elimination show (like Survivor, Big Brother, etc.) where the people voted out are stuck with the other people for the entire duration of the game. Hopefully, they'll do something like that for this season.

    Or they could switch out the first persons voted out for other people midway through?

    Morgan, the Family on ABC (which they are getting ready to re-air) was like that. The eliminated family members still lived in the house and could win prizes, but could not win the grand prize.

    Two more How about a really early merge a couple of episodes in, where individual reward and immunity start happening almost from the get-go, or maybe they can have the tribe that wins immunity vote the castaway off from the other tribe?

    > maybe they can have the tribe that wins immunity vote the castaway off from the other tribe?

    That would be interesting, but would they know enough about the other tribe members to decide who to eliminate?

    Why not just settle immunity with elimination rounds of paper/scissors/rock?
