PSA: Survivor Season 32, Vote Now

Season 32 of Survivor has an all-new theme: Second Chance players! And CBS and Jeff Probst are letting us, the fans, decide who the cast will be from a group of contestants who didn’t win their first time around.

How does this apply to you, as a Brown student/parent/alum?

As I’m sure most of you who are following the current season know (SPOILER ALERT) that awesome Brown alums Shirin ’05 and Max ‘99 were both voted off the current season of Survivor: Worlds Apart. Max was pretty brutally blindsided and Shirin was bullied until she eventually met her end, which was hard to watch. I’m sure they were very appreciative for all of your Twitter/Facebook love this season.

Want to show them some more love? Fortunately for us, they were both fun enough to watch to be candidates to return.

Tap into your Brunonian spirit and vote for Max and Shirin to join the cast of Season 32! Also, if you hate those smug Yale students, don’t vote for Stephen Fishbach, class of 2001.

You can vote here, and you can vote once a day. VOTE SHIRIN AND MAX!!!

Final note, if you truly love Survivor, vote for Shane Powers, national treasure and star of this absurd audition tape.

There are two Brown alums on the new season of Survivor…

Last Wednesday, Survivor premiered its 30th season, and while I thought my friends and I were the only ones watching, it actually drew a really big crowd (10.04 million people, to be exact).

Upon further research, it turns out that Brown is the leader in Ivy League Survivor contestant. [Ed’s note. Is this something to be proud or ashamed of?] A resounding four people having competed in the show, although none have won so far.

Suck it, Princeton!

Two of this season’s contestants are alumni from Brown, both representing the “White Collar” tribe–Max Dawson ’99 and Shirin Oskooi ’05. Coincidentally–or maybe not–they were named by host Jeff Probst as the two players from the White Collar tribe to watch. In the first episode, they formed an alliance, and SPOILER ALERT: voted out another White Collar tribe member. Both of these Brown alums have great chances of winning the show. Get to know them a little bit better after the jump.
