"Survivor: All-Stars II FAQ/Reader Check-In"
Throughout the season, I got a few questions asked of me - some easy to answer, some not so easy to answer, and some that were hard to answer out of character. Since I'd like to know what questions, suggestions, praise, or criticism people have, the thread is here for the however many of you who actively read the All-Stars II season.

Ask me anything you want, and I should be able to provide an answer.

By all means...I was wondering where the next episode was going to come from. After the drama of All-Stars II, we need some comic relief.

Colonel please can you add more subtle refs of Julie??

Well, I wouldn't want to steal your thunder...though I guess if we find out Phil's seeing anyone in DAWdom, I might have to work her in...

I really don't have any questions, NOW, tho I probably had plenty during the reading & if I had time to go back and re again those questions would come back to me......... (i'm rambling again, aren't I?

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I for one thoroughly enjoyed reading All Stars II - you had me on the edge of my seat at many moments!
Thanks for the fun. Are you really planning a TAR series?


Agman says I'm GREEN. (Is there a message in that?)

Actually, I've already planned the road map. I've done some preliminary research on travel times between legs, and I do intend to go to some never-before-seen places.

However, the release isn't due until next summer. I prefer to run my seasons during down-time...although if I get the research done, I may go nuts and do TAR over the holidays. Don't hold your breath, though.

The season will take place as if it's the middle of 2008; the intent is to pick up where All-Stars II left off.

I don't know how you do it!
Wonderful - I'll have something to look forward to for next summer (smart move).
Now, are you doing any of the research for locations in person? Do you need an assistant? I'd volunteer to try out the tasks for you - you know, so there are no more accidents like on AllStarsII. Wouldn't want any more lawsuits. Besides, I'll volunteer to hang out with Phil any day!
Just let me know when and where you need me.

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, maaaaaaaaaaaaybe...I can tell you this much - I don't want to turn someone into an automatic villain a la Rob and Amber. Simply put, they won't win, they're pretty much guaranteed second or third place (or an early crash and burn,) and does anyone want to see another millionaire running around the world collecting a massive appearance fee and getting helped (or shafted) because of what people saw on Survivor?

Besides, Maria's leg is still broken, and I'm guessing that, if I did cast her and Laura, 90% of the time, they would be a happy couple, and the other 10%, Laura would be a pouty little bee-yotch and threaten to take the next plane back to Buffalo every three-and-a-half minutes.

Cast D!ck and Daniele from Big Brother 8. No one outside the USA and Canada would know them, because US Big Brother doesn't go worldwide, and yet they'd draw viewers, if for no other reason than to see how many foreigners D!ck could offend.

Okay, so here's mine:

1. How much of the boot order and plotline, as least as far as existing contestants went, was based on viewer's revenge? Were there cases where you were actively saying 'I've always wanted to see X get hirs, and now's my chance?' By the same token, were you ultimately seeking some level of justice for Ozzy?

2. Did you restructure any conversations because the words didn't feel like the actual players would be saying them? Speech has to carry the majority of this, and some of the characters have fairly distinctive vocal patterns.

3. On a scale of one to ten, how insane did the challenges drive you?

4. Did anyone actively criticize or praise their 'edit'?

5. You're not really going to subject us to Whining 'Round The World, are you? (And if it is the 2008 Donato World Tour: We Came To Kill You All, they pull an Alison and go out no later than second -- right?)

And #6: What question do you wish someone had asked?

Many good questions...let's see what we got.

1. How much of the boot order and plotline, as least as far as existing contestants went, was based on viewer's revenge? Were there cases where you were actively saying 'I've always wanted to see X get hirs, and now's my chance?' By the same token, were you ultimately seeking some level of justice for Ozzy?

A few were based on viewer's revenge, at least from my point of view. Ami could have gone one of two ways for me - early boot or F4 villain. I ended up booting her early because i felt that her feud with Maria had pretty well run its course and because I had to spare Paula.

Chris was the same thing - first out of his tribe, just as he "should" have been in Vanuatu. I wasn't really kind to the Vanuatu players, with the exception of Twila, who I probably could have used more...although in some way, Twila seems to have rubbed off on Paula.

Parvati and Danielle's boots were viewer revenge. I made Parvati into a little bit more of a flirt than usual (having her flirt with another female was a bit of absurdity on my end, but it worked as far as the story went. In no way did I imply that Parvati swung that way, but I did imply that she was willing to pretend to.) I didn't much care for Danielle in Exile Island and really only included her because so many people said she was worthy of inclusion. Her tiebreak loss to Cirie was definite viewers' revenge.

The rest were pretty much all storyline. And just for the record - I actually like Danni. Having her pull a stunt like the one she did was great for the story, but if she actually lurked here and read it, she'd probably letter-bomb me if she didn't make it to the finale and reunion.

As for Ozzy winning...I actually thought the Cook Islands jury made the right decision, but he's probably the best player never to win, so writing him in as a winner sent two messages for me. One was that I thought Ozzy was a great player and earned a victory he never cashed in on. The other was that I wasn't automatically going to let one of my own creations win.

2. Did you restructure any conversations because the words didn't feel like the actual players would be saying them? Speech has to carry the majority of this, and some of the characters have fairly distinctive vocal patterns.

A few of them. The interactions between the real Survivors and the Japan ones was always a bit odd for me, especially considering that Danni had very close interactions with two real Survivors and a loved one. Some of the things she said with Charlie were probably very genuine - the movie reward was one where they probably forgot that they were just a fake couple.

The biggest conflict I had was trying to make a lot of the dialogue between Charlie, Danni, and Paula seem natural when I knew full well that it was largely rehearsed. (Actually, with that story, I was a little afraid I was borrowing too much from the Angela/Tony fake romance, so I took the idea in a completely different direction, including the fact that both Charlie and Danni were in on it. The only person in the Tony position there was Charlie's son.)

It was challenging for me to get a good physical description of my own castaways, since I tried to picture the scenes playing out in my head as I wrote them. It was also very hard for me to picture Danni, who, by all accounts, seems very nice, turning into some sort of evil dungeon mistress and going all psycho on Charlie.

3. On a scale of one to ten, how insane did the challenges drive you?

Eight, although the Attack Zone challenge was lots of fun to write.

4. Did anyone actively criticize or praise their 'edit'?

I'm sure that people watched and saw what dopes they were, but I can imagine Terry being shown as worse than he was...and maybe Yau-Man appearing to try too hard.

5. You're not really going to subject us to Whining 'Round The World, are you? (And if it is the 2008 Donato World Tour: We Came To Kill You All, they pull an Alison and go out no later than second -- right?)

I said there would be a familiar face. No, it won't really be Evel and Daniele. Aside from the fact that I didn't care for Daniele, Evel already has his money.

Truth be told, though, I have some cast members in mind, and some will probably make us wish for Evel and Daniele...

And #6: What question do you wish someone had asked?

I was guessing that someone would ask me why I picked on Danni (pure convenience,) or what the deal was with some of my characters (I suppose Charlie's missing fingers or Paula being an alcoholic could have come up in Japan, but the fact is, Japan was a first try at writing a season of Survivor. I really cranked things up for All-Stars II.)
