    I'd rather see more of the social strategy back at camp than two challenges. These challenges have gotten so boring. They are all the same.

    I wonder why they're combining the reward and immunity challenges? Reward challenges are fun because (a) you get to see an extra challenge and (b) usually the reward puts the winner at somewhat of a disadvantage for the next challenge.

    Another reason I don't like having reward challenges often is because the prize is often food. They are hardly even deprived anymore. I would like to see them go back to the way it was in early seasons when they were given a set amount of food for the 30 days and had to ration it and a rare food prize was really coveted. Didn't some women strip just for a bite of peanut butter?

    i also think they are missing out on another aspect of the game. when 3 ppl out of 12 are away, there is definite strategizing going on with one side wondering what the other is talking about. also there's opportunity to bring back some food and share and be a hero. also there's the opportunity to come back and describe in great detail what you had, get people mad at you, then get voted off

    theres an entire social dynamic they just threw away

    Nobody else tried to convince Hope to do that because they all wanted Hope gone. Shamar was just being selfish because he liked Hope more than Eddie, but if his plan had worked, it would have been the opposite of what everyone else in his alliance wanted.

    As for why Hope didn't do what he suggested? No idea. I guess she thought the others were really going to vote for Shamar.

    They didn't throw anything away. :rolleyes: They've never split the tribes up for reward when they're still split into tribes. They'll start doing what you're talking about once the tribes merge, and they'll do it pretty much anytime there are an odd number of people.

    Totally agree, I like the strategy aspect of the game, on the other hand this weeks cage/trunk/rails challenge was by far one of the best new ones we've seen in a long time. It may even be one of my top 10 challenges.

    Time to change things up a bit; challenges are the same, what Jeff the host says etc. Been the same over and over.
