LAST EDITED ON 02-08-10 AT 08:12PM (EST)

In this week's issue of EW (Entertainment Weekly), JP ranked all 19 seasons. It is pretty sweet (though some of his rankings are pretty dubious, hahahaha).

I was not able to find the article online, but here is a great 3 segment interview regarding the upcoming season.

http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/02/08/survivor-heroes-vs-villains-jeff-probst/

Jeff's frankness regarding the selection process is really cool. I love how he calls Fairplay a quitter, calls celebrity TV BS, calls Tom Westman the greatest winner ever, and even talks about considering Brian and offering a slot to Corinne. He also talks about how there have been more memorable characters that were men, which explains why some of the more questionable women made it. He and Dalton have a pretty entertaining argument regarding Sally at the end. Apparently, I'm not the only fan of Sally's pigtails and kneesocks.


Oh, and if no one can find the rank list online, I can manually transfer it into this thread. P/O

1. "RE: JP ranks Survivor seasons 1-19 in EW"
Jeff does those rankings every few years and one thing that is evident is that he rates the newer seasons higher at first to sell the corporate line that newer is better and also he rates low those seasons where the staff had problems, either with the climate or the government. Guatemala and Marquesas were miserable for the crew and look where they are.

I couldn't find a link either but Beatles over at Sucks posted Jeff's rankings with some comments:

http://survivorsucks.yuku.com/topic/64737?page=1


1. Borneo: "This spot will never be replaced...it will always hold a special place in my heart..."
2. Micronesia "The Parvati-led women's alliance produced some of the most memorable moments in the history of the show..."
3. Samoa "Not the most exciting cast overall, but sometimes it only takes one, and Russell is in the Survivor hall of fame..."
4. Palau
5. Pearl Islands "This is a season I would recommend showing to someone you want to introduce to Survivor..."
6. China
7. All-Stars "I still like this season for everything that drove me crazy about it six years ago..."
8. Outback
9. Cook Islands
10. Amazon
11. Tocantins "In a word, Coach."
12. Africa "This season has stood the test of time better than I expected..."
13. Panama
14. Gabon
15. Vanuatu "I always liked this season more than the audience did, and that has probably influenced why it has dropped since my last ranking... The lack of huge characters and huge moments makes this one just another very good season of Survivor but nothing more"
16. Guatemala
17. Fiji "If it weren't for Yau-Man and Dreamz, this might have edged out Thailand as the worst season ever..."
18. Marquesas "This was just a snoozer..."
19. Thailand "I didn't like it then, I don't like it now, and you'll notice nobody from this season was invited back for Heroes vs. Villains."

I agree...though Vanuatu started weak but ended strong, and would have loved to see Twila back as a Villain. Ami would make a good Villain, but she graduated to USOP in Fans vs. Favorites.

As for Chris...the only problem would be whether he's a Hero or a Villain, since he's the quintessential example of an anti-hero.
