    That list sure shows how useless the third finalist is. That person has gotten one vote in each of two seasons and no votes all other seasons.

    It makes the last episode more exciting because the votes are split between 2 more worthy candidates. In a final 2 scenario, they'd take the less deserving person and that person would get few votes and the winner is more obvious.

    The list makes me realize just how little I care about who really wins (except in a couple of cases) and how much I just enjoy the game.

    I remember how Russell always freaked out if he even got 1 vote and totally blew his strategy going after that person. I can see Tony doing that.

    What are the rules about stealing clues or idols that other people have found? Apparently, Woo did not violate a rule by taking the clue that was in Spencers pants. So what if Woo had found the HII? Can another player just walk up and take it from him? Or if it's hidden in his stuff, can someone take it? Does possession of the HII only matter at the time of tribal counsel, and before that it's fair game?

    I believe that you cannot steal an idol.

    There were some editing jumps during Spencer's idol walkabout.
    1. When they returned from the Outback during a sudden downpour and Spencer slipped away from everybody and read the clue, he was just wearing his green shorts.
    2. Woo was shown turning his head as his voiceover said that he noticed Spencer slipping away and starts to follow him, but the rain has now ceased.
    3. Suddenly Spencer is wearing the khaki pants which he removes to place the clue in the fold (??) while his socks are stuffed in his shoes. Why not put the clue in the pants pocket, or into the shoes?
    4. Then when Woo picks up the pants and discovers the clue, Spencer is wearing his shoes in order to give chase to the Stealthy Ninja! BTW, loved Woo's description of his own moves while following Spencer and then eluding him once he had the clue ... Stealthy Ninja and then running away like Sonic the Hedgehog ... LOL!

    Yeah, I noticed that as well. Everybody else had the straight-on camera, but Morgan had the down-blouse overhead cam. Thank you, Mark Burnett! :up:

    I thought that has been done before. Like right out of the guys bag while he was off doing something else.

    I've seen people dig in people's bags when they weren't around and find a HII, but I don't believe I've ever seen one stolen. I am almost certain that it is against the rules to steal an idol.

    Now as for the clues, I think if you hide a clue in a folded pair of pants like Spencer did, that's fair game.

    I know the idol cannot be stolen, but I've always wondered what happens when the person rehides the idol. If someone stumbles across it, do the get to keep it?

    I would assume that if you can't steal it out of their stuff you can't steal it hidden somewhere else. But what if you're just digging around looking for an idol and you think you found it for the first time? If you then don't tell anyone and rehide it and play it later--would they tell you no? Or would the camera men or whoever following you around tell you it was off limits when you found it? :confused:

    I know you cannot steal an idol from someone's person or from their personal belongings, but I always assumed (not at all that I know this for a fact, though) that if someone found the idol and buried it somewhere to hide it from the others, that they run the risk of someone else finding it there. I always thought that a buried idol was also fair game.

    Not sure what would happen in that case, but I have my doubts about any "but so-and-so found it first and hid it there, so you can't have it" type of rule. :shrug:

    I was under the same impression as Capt. Picard... if it's in your personal belongings then it can't be taken, BUT there's no rule against people searching your belongings and seeing that you have it.

    On the other hand if you hide it or bury it somewhere else besides your personal stuff and someone else finds it, then they now own it. Kind of a "finders keepers" type of thing :p

    Since it seems many people didn't read the EW Q&A with Probst that was posted earlier in the thread, here's what he said about stealing idols and going through people's stuff:

    Hmmm... OK... So it is okay to rummage through people's belongings... And they can take a clue, but they can't take an idol...

    WTF? Where are these so called "rules" documented?

    I thought there were only two rules in Survivor:

    1 - You can't conspire to share the grand prize money
    2 - You cannot do anyone physical harm

    I thought that was it... But apparently there are more details, and they get pretty specific...

    You can see the note that comes with the idol when Spencer found it. It's a full page of all the rules. You can read some of them on TV but the camera wasn't exactly pointed at it.

    I'm sure those 2 rules are the basic overview of the rules and I'd guess they give contestants a full rulebook that they need to sign before they can be on the show. For instance, the contestants know about the tie-vote rock-picking rule.
