Survivor: Second Chance - the cast backstories

Survivor: Second Chance may be three years old because of SABC3's smackable nonsense but it's still brilliant.

I'm loving every moment, espesh with the Old School / New School conflict, which has been so relevant - not only in relation to Survivor but in relation to life as it is right now.

Life has become so infested by the concept of strategising to win-win-win and to get more-more-more no matter what it takes and Survivor's making excellent commentary about this New state of mind. 

I've always been a fan of hard-core strategising on Survivor BUT it has to have soul and I'm loving seeing Spencer's emotions and truth for the first time.

What's happening with him and even Kass reveals that the ultimate Survivor strategy is to find the perfect yin/yang balance of both: true human connection mixed with strategic skill.

I'm also enjoying the fact that we know the castaways already but I can't remember everyone - or at least I don't remember all their Survivor backstories so I found this cool vid. of Jeff giving an overview of their histories which I thought you'd enjoy too...
