    In the first season they purposely doctored a shot of an upcoming tribal council and put it in the previews. It showed a final 4 sitting there that was different from what actually happened.

    It certainly appears as if there will be a final 2, which would be great. Otherwise either next Wednesday no one will be voted out and 2 voted out during the 2 hour finale. Or, if someone is voted out Wednesday then only one gets eliminated in 2 hours next Sunday. Either way that would suck. I've always hated a final 3.

    The finale is on 12/16. So they have a chance to eliminate someone next Wednesday to get it down to 4. Then they can eliminate 1 or 2 in the first hour of the finale. Final 2 or 3 is still possible. I wouldn't assume anything.

    In the Jeff Probst interview, regarding the makeup of the final TC, he makes an offhand comment
    referencing the "final three". For whatever that's worth.

    I don't think they'd have a final three with a jury of 8. It's too easy for a jury of 8 to tie.*

    *Yes, it's also also possible for 9 people to tie (when there are three people to vote for), but the chances are much slimmer.

    They could make Wednesday's episode a 3 part challenge, and not eliminate anyone. I'd be surprised if there's a final 2, even though I like that a LOT better. I think the days of final 2's are over. It's got to be at least 5 seasons since the last one, right?

    There's only been one time where they had an even number on the jury.

    Wow, 9 finalists in S8, I don't remember that!! <I'm sure that's a typo>

    So we haven't had a final 2 since season 18.

    I hate the 3 finalist things... there's always someone that no one votes for. :)

    The 7/2 they did in the early seasons was just right for me.

    Because then Malcolm, Abi, and Carter would have voted out Skupin or Lisa.

    I think this was part of her "I have an immunity idol" performance piece.

    I hope that the producers saw what I saw, and invited Justice and Li'l Skupin to play the game next season.

    That season was filmed before this season aired, so the other contestants would not know who they were.

    I would like to watch Justice play this game.

    I think it would be interesting to have family members of former (good) players on. So far I think the only one has been Hantz.

    That's a good idea - I would like to see him play too.

    Actually, I think a whole season of nothing but family members of former players would be kind of fun.

    As long as it isn't like the family version of TAR. That was bad.

    That sucked because of the kids. Survivor would do it right.

    I would love to see a "loved ones" season almost as much as I would love to see a "first player voted out" season.
