    I bet there's a rule now... you can ask for help, but you can't invite them to come along. The little children followed the water bottle teams this last episode, so it must not be expressly forbidden that someone can accompany you (ie, invite themselves). :)

    Agreed. It's one of the reasons I like this show over others of it's kiind. Everybody does as well as they can do, and it doesn't matter what anybody else does.

    Not the "he's too good, let's eliminate him" aspect you get on Survivor...

    Unless otherwise stated by the clues, teams are allowed to use the help of locals for navigating and during tasks. Teams are required to have any locals who appear on camera sign release forms that legally clear the footage for use; some teams have avoided or reduced contacts with random local strangers because the release process can take a very long time to complete.

    More rules and citations here!

    Disclaimer: Reading through the citations will take much of the "magic" out of the show for some people, so read at your own risk.

    I have this one sitting on my phone and haven't finished it yet, and don't really care who got Philiminated.

    The bee segment had me dropping out of the show for the rest of the night Sunday, and I haven't bothered to catch up.

    Thanks for that link. Very interesting. I can see now why the teams limit their use of locals to the times they really need the help.
