PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

I also enjoyed Salon's analysis. It really amazes me that Mark Burnett turned out Survivor on his first attempt and Romer has been doing this for a while. CBS seems to have made two big mistakes, the first is editing. It is down right horrible. They are, by the very premise of the show, running a very risky game. As evidence, one European contestant committed suicide. Why are they not showing the risky scenes like they should be. Also, this should be on later (say 10:30pm), which would allow them to show more of the "on the edge" material that they have got to be collecting as the audience is naturally older.
The secound is the audience voting system, which to some extent is a problem that is created by the first problem. By that I mean, the audience they really want to watch the show and vote wants more of an edge to the show, with the exception of Karen's meltdown. The best evidence of this opinion I can offer is Jordan. First, aside from the humor it contained, Letterman's infamous observation is exactly right. This woman was controversy, if the show had a little more edge, she would have seemed slightly less offensive, but still interesting.
Why in the world was she voted off? To answer the question, I am going to to sound like something of a pig, but it is simply my guess, I don't have any evidence to back it up, but would love to see the evidence regardless of whether my guess is right. Here goes: There are no men voting (please excuse me if this was discussed earlier, I'm new) and certainly no men between 18-35. If CBS had them interested enough to vote, she would be there for quite a while.
I must confess that I watch the webcast every couple of days or so and read about the show, but it is impossible for me to make it through the half-hour and stopped after only two episodes.
