It's hard to understand what you're talking about with the "gathering clues" comment, but just because they didn't show something during the show doesn't mean it didn't happen. You can't infer that nobody looked for an idol just because you didn't see it. And you seem to be implying that Tyson just found the idol laying on the ground, but after he found it he said something to the effect of, "I probably stepped on it 20 times" while looking, so it had to be covered. They've only got so many minutes to air so they can't show everything...
Who is the real you? Your animal instincts, or the one that calmly decides after considering all aspects of a situation. Why the "real you" is the one under so much stress that doesn't have the ability to think?
Don't be so quick to judge people. Who is the real Misty? The stupid, useless hot girl of survivor Panama, or the actual rocket scientist she is in real life? Who is the real Cochran? The awkward, stupid, frightened boy of the first time, or the superman mastermind that won everything the second time?
We have so very little information. You don't know everything they do (you said it yourself, not enough air time), you don't know where they come from and you don't know what it is like in survivor for them (even people that have been in survivor don't know because it is different for everybody).
About "gathering clues": Jeff said it. What we have seen is that 5 other smart people had the same information, at the same time with Tyson and that the idol was super easy to find.
"That fact alone changes nothing."
Yes it does. Read the example, and think about it a little bit.Edited by 33idolfinder - 11/24/13 at 12:08pm
