HASH(0xa07b3084) out of 5 stars One of Survivor's Best June 26 2007
By Courtenay Gleaton - Published on

Survivor Vanuatu: Islands of Fire, the ninth season of the series, is definitely among the best seasons of Survivor. This season featured many interesting and unpredictable plot twists: an earthquake; nude sunbathing; shocking tribal council outcomes; and, of course, the winner. The DVDs' features are great. The four featurettes, along with the audio commentaries, add much insight and intrigue into what happened behind the scenes. Overall this was an excellent season of Survivor, and this DVD set is a must-have for any true Survivor fan.

HASH(0xa07b33b4) out of 5 stars Dumb and Dumber! Jan. 25 2012
By Shane - Published on
Verified Purchase
This season of "Survivor" I thought should be called "dumb and dumber!" I found it to be one of the funnest seasons to watch that is out on video. The thing that was great was it's girls vs guys. You get to watch how each tribe handles this. Watching this season with my girlfriend was fun, I found the guys to be irritatingly stupid, and she found the girls to be irritatingly catty and stupid. There are a few surprises and lots of irritation to the viewer as you watch these people create so much drama and problems for themselves. I liked the variety of women on the show and watching them interact. The guys were pretty boring and stupid I thought, but didn't detract from the show, only making it better because you couldn't believe how stupid they were playing! I found myself wanting them to keep playing so dumb so I could say "told ya so!" I was VERY surprised at the final two, and was compelled enough throughout the entire season. Not the best played "Survivor" per say, but fun on it's own merit of pretty much what NOT to do. Worth watching!

HASH(0xa07b3948) out of 5 stars One of the slower seasons Feb. 4 2013

The characters in this season weren't as strong as they have been in past seasons. It was ok but a bit dull towards the end.
HASH(0xa07b3b7c) out of 5 stars a solid but not outstanding season of survivor… July 19 2016
By trebe - Published on
The follow up to Survivor All Stars, Survivor: Vanuatu – Islands of Fire was the ninth edition in the series, and featured a return to the traditional format, with 18 first time players vying for a million dollars. In a bold opening ceremony, the contestants were divided by sex into two groups of nine, setting the stage for the initial phase of the game.

Some may disagree, but I found this season to be a little below average when it comes to entertainment value. The division by sex is a factor, along with the contestants selected, the way the game was played, and elimination votes that eventually left just one man with six women. While there are some interesting personalities and a few occasional emotional outbursts, in comparison to other Survivor seasons, Vanuatu just falls a little short in the drama department.

Conditions are relatively favorable, as food is relatively plentiful, and the weather is moderate. Hidden immunity idols are not yet part of the game. Players like Sarge” Masters, Scout Cloud Lee, Rory Freeman, Twila Tanner, Chris Daugherty, Ami Cusack, and others have their moments, but for various reasons, the season unfolds without a lot of fireworks and cutthroat moves, as highway repair personnel assume prominent roles.

The image quality of the DVD’s is very good, and there are some nice featurettes, and informative and lively commentary tracks on four episodes, especially the finale featuring host Jeff Probst, who later became romantically involved with contestant Julie Berry.

Diehard fans will not want to miss Vanuatu, which does feature an earthquake, flowing lava, family reunions and some interesting challenges, however the casual watcher might want to start with another season such as Survivor: Heroes and Villains, or Survivor: Cook Islands.
