    Everyone except the 2 who are tied draws rocks and one of them goes home. That's a pretty good incentive to not have a 2nd tie vote.

    I used to like Candice but she's too whiny for my taste. I hope Culpepper takes them both out. They are too schmoopie.

    Culpepper and his followers made a stupid decision when they blindsided John. When your team is already down in numbers, the last thing you want to do is vote off the strength.

    I thought the exact same thing. I can't imagine Ciera was very pleased to hear that last night. In fact, she was probably downright humiliated by it. Not a very motherly thing to say at all.

    Yep, that's how it would have played out. Here's a quote from Jeff Probst:

    Are we to assume that the events that went down at tribal last night are what Jeff was referring to in the Time article? He mentioned that something crazy was going to happen this season.

    But what if two people change their votes and end up with another tie?

    I told my wife the same thing last night. Though I used "bitchy" instead of whiny.

    I'm sure it does not matter how each person voted, only that the result of the vote was a second tie.

    They were at least once. In season 18 (which I'm watching now) both idols are hidden in the treemail statue.

    If this is what he was referring to, then meh. This isn't even in the conversation. I figured Brad was going to get his eventually, so I wasn't surprised by this.

    According to the quote, they go to the rocks if nobody changes their vote, therefore, in your scenario, they shouldn't pull rocks. The words in the quote could have easily been "...if after the second vote we remain tied...". He specifically mentioned nobody changing a vote and remaining tied, however.

    The shock wasn't that Brad finally got what he deserved, but in how it all went down. The way Caleb orchestrated that crazy last second shift was unprecedented.

    The quote you put from Probst didn't come over, but is this a recent quote? For some reason I thought they got rid of the purple rock and use fire-making between the 2 instead.

    Yeah, this would make the most sense. Different clues for different tribes, and when John was still there it was his 2nd clue vs anyone else's 1st clue.

    You're parsing it like a lawyer. This is not written in some "Survivor policy and rules book", it was just an explanation by Probst. I think the spirit of what he says is pretty evident.

    It was in his most recent interview with Dalton about this very eipsode

    Found my own answer. I see now that your quote was from this week's Q&A between Dalton and Probst.

    That was such a horrible way it played out before when the one dude ended up going home because of it, that I thought I had heard that they dropped the dreaded purple rock. Guess not. Which is why I could understand Vytas switching. If he doesn't switch, Brad and Cierra stay and Vytas now has a 25% chance of randomly going home. No way should he let that happen. And lol at Hayden taking that chance.

    But it does bring up a good point. Probst's answer specifically said "if nobody changes their vote and we remain tied, then the two people tied are now immune (yes, immune) and the rest of the tribe must draw rocks to see who goes home." So, in regards to the bolded, what if Vytas switched his vote but Caleb also switched his vote and they were still tied. What happens then?

    While this may be true, I don't think it's evident. He made his explanation lengthier by including a qualifier. I am no lawyer (nor have I even stayed at a Holiday Inn recently) but it would have been easier to just say "after another tie we pull rocks", if that is in fact what happens without regard to votes changed or not.

    The silliness that is argued here sometimes.

    If it is a tie, and then a tie again, they can draw rocks. No one cares which specific vote a person casts. A tie is the contestants getting the same number of votes.

    And the rules actually add another step in the process - there can be a 2 minute discussion about who to vote out. This has never happened in the game, though, but it is allowed based on the producers discretion.

    I'm definitely on this side. I don't like Brad Culpepper.



    Wait, he's a trial lawyer too? That might explain the big mouth. I noticed the tat, but couldn't tell what it was.
