It wasn't all that long ago I was thinking Survivor was on its last legs. They had to recruit people to play, and when they couldn't get enough new players they filled in with previous players. Unfortunately, some of the recruited players were just lowlife, pardon my bluntness. Earlier challenges were repeated, making it look as if they were running out of ideas. But then came the resurgence of the last two games, and it looks as if Survivor has survived after all. And I'm rather glad. It was the original reality show, after all.
