    Thanks, Devdog. That's the kind of information I was lacking.



    I had heard the mention of 5-10 years, too, which is what confuses me about people talking about him like he's on his last leg and this might be the last chance they get to do anything with each other.

    Sure, it's likely the only chance they'd get to do something like the reward on a TV show, but the same can be said about any of them. Five to ten years seems like a long time to make special memories.


    I guess I must just be incredibly cold-hearted.

    Me too. Didn't Christina mention that she needs to START spending more time with her Dad? And the 5-10 years became "a few" when others said she should have been taken.

    It did seem weird to me with all these cute young women, that no one had a boyfriend come. Don't know if they're married or not--maybe the husbands or boyfriends have to work and couldn't come.

    It always seems odd to me that not seeing your dad or brother for 39 days brings out all these tears and all. Spouses, yes. I always think that whoever is married should get the loved ones visits, but they usually don't. :confused:

    I would assume the producers have something to do with that. They'd rather it be family if at all possible.

    After being subjected to these type of contions for 39 days, I would say that most people would get emotional seeing or talking to any close family member. I remember the first time we got to call home from basic training....I've never seen so many grown men cry like babies. It's tough to imagine unless you've been in a similar situation.

    Jeff had a tout (video tweet, I guess) explaining that the Survivor contestants get to say which family member they want, if they make it that far.

    LOL!

    I never watched those Ponderosa videos. That was great. Seems like a great place but after a couple of days you just want to go home already!

    Correct: Family. Not anybody they want such as boyfriends/friends/etc. That was my point.

    I think I recall that friends have also been guests before. Wasn't it Johnny Fairplay's friend who brought "news" of his grandmother's death?

    I agree. I need subtitles, because I couldn't understand anything either.

    I don't think this is the case. On the show, Jeff refers to guests as "loved ones".

    A loved one can be anyone.

    I guess you were never in the military. I felt that way in boot camp, partially due to the isolation of the outside world.

    Well, I guess you're better than me at that sort of stuff. But after listening to it about 6 times I'm starting to piece it together, and holy crap. If I'm not mistaken, she sounded like she thought that was becoming her real life and now she has to come back to the real world and she doesn't want to.

    It was all just a muffled mess. I have an easier time understanding Kenny on South Park. :)

    Goodness. The condemnation of a whole generation due to the actions of one ditsy blonde.

    Darn kids these days! It's that rock and roll music, I tell ya! And all that dancing! It leads to sex!

    What a fun episode! It's always sweet when someone gets their just desserts, and Kat got that in spades :D

    Kim better keep winning immunity. I don't think the remaining can be so stupid as to not vote her out if they have the chance.
