Ok, i'm sure that this has been discussed before. But why do they show up in bikini's. They get cold, its wet, but they prance around in those thongs things. So Kelly says its wet and cold, and Na (who has a history of bone chilling) wears that rubber band outfit. For crying out loud, shop the L L Bean catalog.
oh I sometimes like those bikini's.

Is there a clause that Survivor has about what you can bring, besides, high heels, alligator shoes and thongs??

Hello HDTV and welcome.

My memory is (and maybe someone can back me up on this) that Executive Producer Mark Burnett (EPMB) has a lot of events before Survivor actually begins. He gathers the participants for interviews, photo shoots and the like.

Then, without much warning, he says "Get in the boat" or helicopter or flying dragon or whatever. That's why contestants are dressed as if they're going a garage sale and they'll be back home in a half hour.

Besides, it's not very dramatic when someone is nice and comfy in their sub-zero, Antartica rated parka.

Finally, bikinis and men's swimsuits = ratings.

Fabio had jeans on yesterday. He apparently has more than one clothing item.

If they have all these pre-Surivor events, why is it that in Episode 1 they all need to do the "my name is xxx" routines?

My understanding is that they are not allowed to talk or communicate with each other before the game begins. They see each other as they go through various group activities, including orientation and safety lessons as well as the others mentioned above.

Molie was thinking there might have been a pre-Survivor mixer.

Well, a few of these DAWs needed a pre-Survivor shaking, so maybe he was thinking of that.


Or post Survivor shaking. Whatever.

I'd be willing to wager that a snuggie or parka would have more power in the game then a II.

So what you are saying, that almost literally they show up with the clothes on their back for some "event' and because they have been already selected, are sent off. Interesting

Yep. Anyone remember a few seasons ago when the contestants were on deck of the ship in dressy clothes and then Jiffy said, "Jump in the rafts and paddle ashore."?

That was a disaster because nice clothes aren't designed for the rigors of Survivor. Besides, I think some of the women went sans underwear in order to avoid VPL.
It was the Season of the Blur.

Actually, the producers decides what each player will bring on the show even when they don't surprise them with "only the clothes on their back." Look at the tribes and you'll see that the players are dressed mostly in the colors of their tribes. For examples: Look at all the yellow in Foa Foa or the red in Jalapao. I also remember Chris saying that he had brought a regular red T-shirt but that an assistant said it wouldn't do so he cut off the sleeves and turned it into that ridiculous "wife-beater" we always saw him wearing.

Players bring many suitcases of clothes then assistants go through the clothes and decide what is OK, what isn't. Parkas have been allowed in the outback, who doesn't remember:

I'm guessing that the producers decide at what point do they need the extra clothes and when they don't. In Nicaragua, last summer, I doubt the temperature ever went below 60F, enough to be cold when it's wet, not enough to get really sick.

Well weather the potential contestents know if they are selected or not. I putting a mandate out there for them. Every interview going forward. carry you own tarp....a glad trash bag, even better one that expands, for your alliance.

Talk about commercial product placement.

Personally, the bikinis are a key part of the entertainment for me. I have noted previously that they are getting smaller and smaller though. The guys are also wearing less and less. I'm not complaining. Just noting.
