And his lie was STUPID!
"I've got an Immunity idol. Make sure you vote me off!"
Jeebus, how dumb can you be??? Superfan, my ass.

As for giving up on the first challenge, I thought that he waited as long as he could, without risking the fishing equipment, and if they were at all behind, it was a smart move.
I also wonder if, since she told us she sucked at puzzles, if she might have mentioned that to him, off camera...

I didn't pay much attention to the rules. What happened if neither tribe solved the puzzle before the sand ran out? Didn't appear that either was close to solving.

Then the "bonus" item was no longer in play and they couldn't pull the lever to abort the challenge. Once the timer ran it out, it just came down to who solved it first got the original rewards shown.

CBS’s ‘Survivor: Ghost Island’ Start Signals End Of NBC’s Olympics-Fueled Winning Streak
By Lisa de Moraes, Deadline.com - Mar. 1, 2018

Armed with launch of Survivor: Ghost Island, CBS scuttled NBC’s 20-night demo winning streak that included 18 consecutive nights of Winter Olympics and the two nights that followed.

CBS’s Survivor: Ghost Island launch topped Wednesday primetime in viewers and key demos, winning its 2-hour block in viewers by 45% over closest competitor, by 42% in the demo. Ghost Island’s opener improved over last year’s Survivor spring debut by 6% in total viewers, coming in flat in the demo.

S:GI (1.7, 8.14M) topped every half hour in both metrics from 8-10 PM, starting at 8 with its strongest stats (1.9, 8.769M), and sliding each half hour thereafter. In its final half hour, at 9:30 PM, the long-running competition series (1.5, 7.45M) shared the demo lead with Fox’s 9-1-1 (1.5, 6.03M), which self-started off its X-Files (0.8, 3.24M) lead-in.

I still would have rolled the dice in order to get that big stash of building tools .. the girl moving the tiles on his Team was really putting some effort in it ..

I don't think anyone had time in advance to have much discussion as to who was good at what .. IOW, picking the tile movers was just a shot in the dark, from what I saw ..

Self delusion seems to be what gets many folks to feel worthy to apply/audition for Survivor.

I guess they are then picked not because the vetting missed their flaws, but likely because those flaws add to the entertainment value!

So Seth Rogan’s dumber brother got voted out. He just couldn’t keep his mouth shut. I don’t know if anything would have saved him. He had to let someone know that he had an “idol” but if he told just one person, that person would have just told everyone else and split the votes to get him out anyway.

Construction bro is playing a strong game so far. I don’t know if he has many allies.

I just made a fake idol, so you guys cant vote me off of the message boards. I am not going to tell anyone though, just use it when you don't expect it.

Damn you Libby, we have to break up now. You got rid of the next best eye candy. Oh well, I guess I will forgive you if you wear more bikini's. Morgan was looking hot also, amazing body. Cant wait to see her all dolled up at the finale.

So far I'm enjoying this season much more than last season. Nice blindside last night though I really would have liked to have seen the guy who went to Ghost Island booted....he annoys me to no end.

And yea...Libby is nice to look at...........

Yeah, too bad Golden Boy was sent to Ghost Island. It would have been fun to see the duel between him and Dom.

The tribe swap at this early stage was too confusing. I had no idea who was on which original tribe. Too many to keep track of.

I said this last week and I’ll say it again. I wish they would show the events that led the majority to decide to vote out Morgan. Maybe they can include it as a web extra.

Kellyn saying she's "excited to open New Treasure Boxes of Love" at the Buff Drop .. ?? Maybe one of the classic lines of the show ..

Bradley the Whiner needs to go ..

I thought it was too early for a Tribe swap, I was just not yet invested in each player enough so it was confusing ..

and the editing for the last couple seasons seems to lean toward #blindside .. so you never really know what's behind the current strategy ..

I agree that though it may have been fine at the player level (Throw them off balance.), the buff drop this soon was not welcome from a viewer perspective. As said, knowing who is who and the player tribe dynamics etc. were too nascent.

As far as the two strong male personalities. I always find the alpha dogs annoying, but also entertaining if I step back from my dislike. Golden Dog and Grifter Dog...Should be fun!

What did Morgan say about Libby? "Don't trust the cute blondes." Or some such. Words to live by? I say trust, but verify.

Oh yeah, another thing that came to mind...What's with the sequential clay urns on Ghost Island that are broke to get the message within? Was something said that I missed? What would keep a Russell type player from braking them all?

True .. it would be interesting to see someone try and see what happens ..

I'm still wondering about the Tote Bags .. I just don't remember seeing them up until this season ..

.. I just ASSumed the player at Ghost isle knows the rule is to break just one ..
Would be funny if they are allowed to break'em all ...
Also, it seems they are breaking them "in order", wonder if that's a rule , to keep certain specific idol powers until later in the game .... I'm waiting for a player to break one "in the middle" ..

What we are really missing is people on the show telling them to look in their tote bag.

And the sign is ambiguous too. I think it says “Break the Urns”. Maybe they were given the instructions to only break one. I think they’re allowed to break any one they want but Jacob started at one end and the others just assumed that you have to go in order?

Maybe we'll see a Player "Think Outside the Urn" ..

I am confused about the TC. All that talk from the guy with the idol and he turns around and plays it for Stephanie? Almost looked like he also wanted Branden out and just played him like a fiddle, which if that whole thing was game play, it was brilliant.

That was annoying. He had a great pitch, then showed no ability to properly read the room and Bradley's tell reaction to the first pairing.

I think he just blew it.

The more interesting fun may be on the other side between the smoke monster and wanna be Jacob.
