I hosted the 25th version this past season. There were 5 brave souls who played. Thank You All, from
the bottom of my heart! With all the spoiling over the last seasons, the PTTE game lost many game
players. I tried many versions to combat the spoiling. The last version I called Stealth Mode. I was
the only one to see the lists. I felt it worked.
I loved hosting for the past 15 seasons. My plan was to host to the end of Survivor. That did not
For the past 5 years, I spent a summer weekend with the reality stars. I would use my PTTE
write-ups for them to autograph. Now, it wonít be as personal. I loved watching them read about
themselves. The toughest one was Michael Bortone, S16 Micronesia. I wrote, ďNow maybe you can
shut your mouth.Ē He was hurt. He told me he was with a bunch of stupid people and could not keep
his mouth shut. I told him I was sorry and I understood. I spent the next evening with him and a
group jamming music. I liked this version of Michael. My best was Stephen Fishbach. He loved my
picture of him in a NY race and took a picture with his phone of which I took a picture of him.
I also brought back a version of the People of the Question Mark game. I called it SIQ! Survivor in
Question! I really had fun with this game.
I hosted this game for the past 5 seasons. There was no skill needed, just answer a few questions.
It was mainly editing questions. I think most people enjoyed it. Some great poetry came out of this
game also. Thanks to all who played
Another area, I was involved in was writing summaries. Back in the day, there were so many people
who wanted to write, you had to prove your ability. If you wanted to write, you needed to start on
I choose One Ocean View. A reality series that lasted 3 shows. I summarized the first two shows. My
first attempt at a summary: "One Ocean View Summary - Episode #101" which I posted August 06.
While waiting to write a summary, I started writing SOTSís. I enjoyed writing the first SOTS. I enjoyed
this form of writing. However, a few years ago we ran into a problem. People got upset that we were
ďspoilingĒ. In a Spoiling Forum! In a thread which was titled State of the Spoiling! Do you remember
this? There were many discussions. It never made sense to me. If you donít want to know about
spoiling, then stay out of this forum. So I stopped writing in this form.
By now, I was organizing the summary thread. Again, we started having a problem with writers. We
lost many of them. It was getting harder to get people to write. Thank you for all for stepping up and
filling in. Last season only two people finished their summaries. I donít know what happened? Webby
used to post them to RTVW. But not anymore. I donít think many people read them anymore.
So here we are. Our wonderful site has fallen into disrepair. Can it be fixed? Donít know. The only
thing I can do with this site is to lurk. Not my choice. I will check back to see if anything has been
fixed. I will not hold my breath. If anyone wants to host PTTE or SIQ feel free. I donít think there will
be many players. Everyone has the same problem as me. So this is how it ends, with a whimper. I
have enjoyed my time here and the friends I have made. Good Luck everyone. I love you all, Connie/
