After watching Matt Elrod run his mouth about a certain subject nonstop this season, I thought about the perfect divisive way for Survivor to split the tribes. It would be guaranteed nonstop entertainment. You ready for it?
Religious vs. Athiests.
Think about it. Regardless of what happens early on in the game you've got a great storyline. If the Athiests start to dominate, we've proven to about a dozen former contestants that no, God does not give a shit about how you do on Survivor. If the religious tribe starts to dominate, then we know we should probably try and hedge our bets on that heaven thing before we die. If it's pretty even, you've got a hotly contested battle between (what I'm sure will be) violently competitive sides.
And it gets even better if you've got a melting pot of religions. Imagine the infighting! Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists! Faith might prove to be far more divisive than it is unifying.
Plus it would be a perfect season to pull the old "you're living on the same beach, but you're not merged" trick. Imagine having these people sharing resources and still competing against each other as two separate forces. It would be ugly. And that's exactly what we want to see.
