Survivor Marquesas audience mostly Dungeons & Dragons players, Trekkers.
The latest ratings have found that Survivor Marquesas‘ largest fan base is of former Dungeons & Dragons players, Magic the Gathering players, Trekkers, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fans waiting for the next movie, and other similar groups.

How can they say that watching a strikingly familiar group of 16 strangers do the same challenges for the fourth time in a row is not scintillating TV?”
+ also: next week’s immunity challenge involves cast watching an episode of Baby Bob as CBS product-places itself.
