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. The supreme ruler of the Survivor message boards, who had his name legally changed to Jeff Probst and had dimples surgically added to his face, denies the charges that the show is now only of interest to fanatics. “That’s so untrue. 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.
