    I'd suggest reading the Q&A with Probst linked to above. He addresses this very thing.

    Tyson has always been a favorite of mine. He's funny and doesn't take himself seriously.

    I agree regarding Hayden too. I think he's learned a lot from BB. Keep your mouth shut!

    I liked the number "puzzle." Something for people like me who are really bad at spacial visual type puzzles. I did think since Laura is a puzzle guru that could be to her disadvantage, but she did ok anyway.

    While Tina looked terrible in that challenge, I thought she had been doing pretty well up to this point. Really carrying her weight considering her age.

    They didn't mention Cat leaving them for an alliance with Hayden as a reason to get rid of her, but I think that must have been part of it. Of course that applies to Vytas too.

    I didn't really get why Tyson was purposely annoying them by hogging the food at the same time as he's saying that that is one way to get in trouble. :confused: But he's funny.

    She also made some comment about her "cool girl friend factor, on a scale of 1 to 10" with his friends just dropped to a negative 2. The whole thing made me chuckle out loud and I didn't for a second think she was not kidding.

    I'm surprised they didn't change things up and just start hiding the clues in rewards as in past years.

    What I'd like to see is for them to say "Here is a clue that has all of the hints to find the idol. If you take this, you WILL find the idol". Now THAT is a big decision. Or just hand them the idol right in front of everybody!

    The problem is that once they start looking, everybody else will follow them and start looking in the same general area.

    I still think the thing to do is accept the clue then open it in front of the rest of the tribe and everybody read it together. Tell your tribe "she's not giving it to me, she's giving it to us."

    That's what I always thought they should do, give everyone a chance if anything hopefully your alliance has an idol at the merge.

    +1 Just watched the episode and that is exactly what I came in the thread to talk about. I never saw him on BB, but he seems like a nice guy from what I have seen on Survivor. Sad that she would think that.

    I thought Kat was completely joking when she said those things about Hayden at the end.

    Or give the clue to the winning TEAM. Then watch them all try and "kill" each other trying to find it.

    Are those interviews with Jeff done after the taping is concluded for the season or right after each TC? If it's after the season, Jeff's stance might have softened on this point, but he sure looks a bit miffed when they throw it in the fire, despite what he says there.

    I agree, Jeff is clearly annoyed when they throw the clue in the fire.

    I'd think at this point the producers would be thinking of other ways to introduce the clue to them - as in the fore-mentioned 'slipping it in the reward basket'.

    Since they will only be out there another 25 days at most, and a cycle is 28 days, syncing them would be impossible. Plus, that is a myth.

    If I were on survivor I would purposely skip my period for the duration of my trip by skipping my sugar pills.

    I've often wondered about this, so Dalton Ross' explanation of what happens before a challenge was especially interesting to me

    My little quip about nesting and syncing cycles was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. :)

    I didn't know about placebo pills affecting periods. :)

    But Vytas would be wise to hunt for the HII on his own and keep it to himself, as the ladies have indicated that they plan to stick together.

    The placebos make it so you have a period that week. If you just keep taking the non-placebos, you won't have one.

    Because John (?) took the clue, didn't share it, and failed to find the idol. That made Brad mistrust him and vote him out.

    Apparently nobody else can see that this wasn't the only possible outcome. If somebody handed me the clue, I'd accept it, then tell my tribe that we are going to find it together, and use it after the merge.

    There's a chance that somebody else will find it and use it before the merge. But in general, it's better to have an idol in your tribe than not.

    They must be hiding the idols better than they used to. Everybody on the one tribe heard the clue eventually, and no one has found it. Russell used to practically trip over them by accident. ;)

    It seems like having a group owned idol could cause trouble. Somebody would have to possess it, so they could really do whatever they want with it. And the guy who's being blindsided wouldn't have a chance of using it. Keeping it until after the merge for the alliance might work.
