The Tribe Has Spoken
"Julia, on the other hand, is such a non-entity out here. I'm tempted to say that she has, like, a vanilla personality. But I feel like that would be doing a great disservice to the flavor of vanilla. I mean, people actively seek out vanilla flavored products. Children clamor to get a vanilla ice cream cone. Nobody's clamoring for anything Julia-flavored."

In nearly 40 seasons, almost 700 players have outwitted, outlasted and outplayed in the battle for $1 million and the title of Sole Survivor -- with Jeff Probst as King of the Jungle.
I've watched nearly every season, with gross admiration for anyone who can start a fire (without a flint!), sleep on a bamboo bed in a downpour, climb a tree for a coconut, spear a fish, or brush their teeth with a twig. And while the players look super stinky, there are some I love -- and love to hate -- from afar.
