viewer comments…
Caution—…a very feel good type show and brings many tears to many people but its too Hollywood in that it pretty much solves peoples problems by “enlightening” them and not by telling them about Jesus.

Caution—As a fan of Survivor, I thought this season was pretty good up until the 2nd episode where the immunity challenge required the contestants to drink cow's blood. Hopefully, this show will redeem itself later on in the season.

One of the safest "Real TV" shows out there. Survivor Africa is entertaining and enlightening; to see what a person will do for the chance to be a millionaire is an eye opener, to say the least. It is compelling to see the "melting pot" of America interacting with each other, offering different points of view and back grounds, not to mention values and morals. I would recommend this program for mature audiences, older teens to adults. Children may have a hard time separating the “game” from real life, which sometimes, unfortunately, is art imitating life.

Comments from young people
Caution—This is one of the shows I can't miss. It's exciting and keeps you in suspense… what I don't like about this show is the backstabbing and the alliances built up between the contestants…other than that, it's a pretty good show!
