Maybe it’s because she put her career on hold to raise her kids before going back to work? If that’s so, that’s pretty weak.

Finally a little pick up in the enjoyment division. The tribe mix up brought back some fun, some decent game play at TC also, too bad it came from a douche.

That puzzle challenge seemed a little easy at the end, the rest was just dragging that thing along. Little disappointed in it.


That kid is really screwing up telling everyone all the secrets she has, plus it is screwing his future chances with her.

That was a weird "Advantage". I must have missed the detail. I was thinking it would have the same "Advantage" as the finder had.

I was surprised when it turned out the finder, in giving it to another tribe's player, could null that player from voting.

Kinda bitter sweet outcome for Ash

Man, I wanted scam artist Joe to go, but he did play his hand well!

Good Tribal ..

Information is Power .. when you give Information away, you don't gain power, you lose power, Mr. Cole .. in addition, your Alliance Partner(s) must be able to Trust you ..

And now, we have the "disadvantage" .. which can be played or not, apparently .. so now, Players will begin to wonder "What's in the Wrapper ..??" .. do I have a good thing or a bad thing .. ??

I heard thru Wiki Leaks Season 36 will be :: "Liberals vs Moderates vs Conservatives" ..

I still would like to see Joe go ..

They just need to give up on these tribe classifications, that just seem arbitrarily put together.

May as well have tribes based on blood type, especially if the separate tribes are so brief before mixing, then all merge anyway.

I'm digging surfer dude. he reminds me of Keanu in Bill and Ted, but with a lot more savvy. Luckily for him, that bogus advantage he received, that was lame by the way, didn't hurt him. I'm glad football dude is gone, though apparently strong looking, his game was not. See-Ya.

Thanks for explaining. My wife and I both missed it too. We were wondering where in the heck that "advantage" came from

The activity in this thread speaks volumes. Jeff better not say something at the reunion show about how this was one of the biggest seasons ever. I doubt he will say how boring its been and how unlikable the players are.

After the merge, they need to put Ol' Jeff in the game! That would make things interesting!

Problem is, no one would be as good at the hosting.

That tribe sure figured out the immunity challenge fast. Having everyone else hold the platform and then the one person just walking up placing it and walking back let them fly through that challenge.


His pass out moment was kind of creepy/scary, he was rambling some weird stuff when he hit the ground. Didn't know not eating enough could cause that to happen so fast (I know it could cause it but he seemed to be eating a lot of stuff, his own fish, cleaning out the jars with stuff in them, etc. just seemed to hit him all of a sudden when he just ate his own fish).

This episode seemed a little more staged than I've noticed before. I know they are all edited and groomed. This seemed a bit more so.

First with the aerial drone pan out of Devin, passed out on the beach Jack Shepard style.

The over the top Outback Steakhouse sponsored feast. What with the players that just happen to call out the Outback menu items they like and then these just happen to be what is on the menu for this unique meal? During the meal, all the call out praise...Outback! Outback! Outback!

Then, after all that food when they were so famished, none got sick? Can't offend the sponsor, right?

Also, the Cole, Ben sit down talk, etc.

Yeah, I know this stuff has been going on since the start. Maybe I'm just getting more jaded.

Still, all that said, this was a better episode than others this season. They fooled Joe into giving up the idol. Chrissy reveals she has amazing mental skills and almost gets the boot for that reveal. Also had that new weird immunity challenge.

I like how the dude who gave up the idol thinks his game is so strong, when in fact he has no idea what is going on with anyone else. He got totally played. I too, thought the Outback thing a bit over the top. I wonder what they paid to get center stage on the show. I also don't think a plot point of this show should be about nearing starvation, they should be fed enough to remain somewhat coherent and maintain the strength needed to face the elements. Voting that girl off also seemed uninspired, as she is hardly a threat compared to almost anyone else in the game, especially compared to the one who almost did get the ax.

Yes, the Outback Pig Out was unusual .. I don't remember any other eatery having had a spot on the show .. and the fact that no one was shown puking afterwards is pretty unrealistic .. of course, we did have the South Pacific shameless movie plug for "Jack & Jill" reward .. which also elicited great reviews by the participants .. Outback got a nice commercial .. "Best steak I ever had .. " .. "Oh, my God, it's sooo good .. ", (I will admit the steak looked good, but of course, Outback is going to put their best foot forward .. and, after all, these people were starving .. a boiled shoe would probably taste good ..

Camp Food wise, in seasons past, we've seen big bags of rice, etc .. it does not appear that rations are being doled out as liberally these days .. perhaps a budgetary cutback .. ?? .. or maybe the Producers are just trying to make it more "Survivor" .. these people can still try to get some fish, etc ..

Then, there was that completely set up Challenge course during the Merge Buff Drop that was never even used .. ??

Cole did not see the Advantage in the bundle of nails .. ?? Or did I miss him getting it .. ??

Deuces ..

Jessica was doomed by her emotions. She’s so infatuated with Cole that she didn’t realize it was making her a target. I wouldn’t be surprised if she has built a shrine to Cole at Ponderosa and is wondering why he doesn’t love her.

She’s got the Crazy Eyes!
Ya she was out to lunch, was it being super selfish that turned her on? Also when people equate being a virgin with being moral I tend to not be able to take them serious. lol

While I can't speak for the Police, I can speak for the Military .. when I came back from a year deployment in Vietnam in 1971, it was the complete polar opposite of things today .. we were looked down upon, marginalized, thought of as second class Citizens and worse .. I am both proud and glad that the Military of today is respected and honored ..
