Fixing The Final Tribal Council

6 Jul

Not since Survivor Nicaragua 10 seasons ago have we had a particularly close final tribal council, which begs the question "is it broken?". In recent seasons jury questioning has simply become a formality, with the editors carrying the burden of trying to make straightforward wins look somewhat unpredictable and interesting. Any facade of open-mindedness has been dropped, with most jurors simply using their allotted time to campaign for a finalist or lap up their last couple of minutes in the spotlight.  In today’s feature article Nick Chester puts forwards his suggestions for fixing final tribal council to return it to its former glory. Read on to find out some solutions to the current dilemma.

The big landmark season 30 is now in the books for Survivor, and Worlds Apart has left a somewhat strange taste in the mouth. Billed by Jeff and others at CBS as one of the best seasons ever, it was an unusual season, with some great moments, a cast with massive potential, and a very popular winner. Yet it was a strangely personal season, and downright uncomfortable to watch at times. Contrast that with San Juan del Sur – a season seemingly unloved by production and downplayed right from the start. The cast was widely panned and the seasons written off by many.
