Fowl Play! CBS Releases New Survivor Opening Credits – with a Twist

Originally posted 04/27/2016 05:35PM

Every season, someone emerges as a Survivor fan favorite.

Back in 2000, people actually wrote songs about Survivor's first sweetheart, the quirky and cute Colleen Haskell. Haskell parlayed that fame into a leading role in a Rob Schneider movie before vanishing from public life. (Speaking of Colleen, does anyone know where she is these days? Asking for a friend.)

We've seen other favorites come and go: Rupert, Russell, Cirie, Joe. CBS knows how to promote these fan favorites – casting them on subsequent seasons, booking them on soap operas and even having them compete on The Price Is Right.

But this is a first.

"In life, as in Survivor, you've gotta know when to kiss ass, you've gotta know when to kick ass." –Tony Vlachos, winner, Survivor: Cagayan

How would you play Survivor: naughty or nice?

It's an age-old Survivor question, though the terminology varies. "Old school" vs. "new school." Last season, Jeff Varner divided his tribe into "beach people" and "shelter people." The naughty new-school beach people were on the shore scheming. The nice old-school shelter people were in the woods providing.

You'd think by now everybody would be devious snakes. Rob Cesternino quipped in The Amazon: "We'll see if these guys that are building the shelter are all gonna be here to use it for more than six or nine days." Spoiler: They weren't. That was 13 years ago.
