Survivor; STOP the Recruiting or Spillman must GO

If you are here then, you are a fan of Survivor and you know the current state that Survivor is in with the dwindling fan base. The black cloud of controversy hanging over Survivor is and was not the resent racial division of tribes for this series, but the fact that 16-17 of the 20 contestants were recruited by an ever increasing lazy or less than motivated casting crew which is lead by Lynne Spillman. It is also her belief that she can no longer get the correct diverse mix of contestants through the application process of ten\'s of thousands of applications and has resorted to recruiting by hanging out at the LA bar scene. That is her reasoning for recruiting players. Survivor was intended to be made up of a cross mix of Americans from all over the USA and not just the wanna be actors from LA like the current series; Survivor: Cook Islands. If you agree that this philosophy of recruiting should be changed or if the casting director needs to be changed in order to have fresh eyes within the casting process of the show, then please fill out this petition. It will be sent to CBS and Mark Burnett by the completion date which will be January 4th, 2006. Let\'s show them what there fan base thinks about recruitment and sign this petition.

Sponsor

We are the fans of Survivor who want to keep Survivor true to it\'s original casting ideas. We believe that the recruitment of contestants will be the ruin of Survivor because there will no longer be that guy you could be standing nest to in line at the check out counter. You, me, us and Joe Blow makes up the fan base and it is us who we should be allowed to root for and not an actor.

    Comments: We want real people, although a few token hunks and sexy ladies, one or 2 of each sex, for the perverts. More diversity, and more focus time on the contestants (relationships, strategy, personality clashes, etc,) so less time on the challenges.
