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.

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 can see why Vytas changed his vote, and it probably wasn't that he didn't want to draw rocks.

Last week, Culpepper used the excuse that he didn't want John to link up with his wife (if she made it back into the game) at the merge.

I can see him thinking, "What if Culpepper decides that it wouldn't be good for him if I partnered with my brother, Aras (another strong player) after the merge?"

Culpepper was setting things up as to what was best for him, not the tribe, which wrong at this point of the game.

He got rid of a strong player now when the tribe needed him because of what he thinks could happen later, and in the process weakened his own alliance. Apparently Hayden still though he could be trusted, but Vytas decided he wasn't trustworthy.

I did notice the tat and don't remember her having it the first time she was on. They never showed her close up enough to see what it was.

I didn't understand that part at all. Why would Tyson and Gervase leave the coconuts they drank from sitting around where someone could find them? Why not chuck them out into the middle of the dense jungle where nobody is going to be walking around? Why take the chance that someone will find them and wonder what is up?

As for tribal, that was a very bold move by Caleb, but very well done. It was pretty risky, because from what we've seen in the past, people know who they're voting for before tribal starts, and rarely does anything said at tribal change that. So him announcing that he was voting for Brad could have seriously backfired on him. But instead, it worked out exactly as he intended. However, the chances of that tribe winning any immunity challenges from here on out is pretty slim. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we had a tribe switch in the next week or two.

I have an even simpler question: why is it wrong for Tyson and Gervase to drink the coconut milk?

For not sharing. If it wasn't wrong, why are they hiding the fact from the rest of the tribe. Why paint a target on your back.

That's kind of what I was thinking too. Aren't coconuts plentiful there? I'd think if anyone wanted one, they could just go get one. Are they ALL high up in trees?

I assumed the coconuts were from a cache that the tribe had previously gathered so they would be missed if Tyson & Gervase had chucked them into the brush.

Coconuts may be plentiful but they're also mostly at the top of 50 foot tall trees. There is definitely effort required to gather them up.

I assumed they were just from a spot where people go to gather coconuts. They seemed to be pretty far from camp. I don't know why they would have gathered a cache so far from the camp.

Another thing that shocked me in voting Brad to RI is right now it seems Brad has a large target painted on him in the eyes of the other tribe. After the merge it would seem many would easily agree he should be target #1 to get rid of (especially if RI is gone by then) since he has taken an active roll in trying to control a lot of the game. To me it seems good strategy to keep in the person who will easily be the bigger target. Though it could be all editing.

The voting is done in secret, right?
There is no way to tell if anyone changed their vote if the results are the same.

As secret as you can be with cameras and producers recording and watching every second of it

Except that's not really what happened, IMO.

When learning that John had a clue to give away, she said, "Let's give it to Monica." A request.

When Monica received the clue, Brad barked at her three times: "Walk it down and put it in the fire. Walk it down and put it in the fire! Walk it down and put it in the fire!" until she complied.

His was an order; hers was not.

I think normally it would have made sense for her to keep the clue for her tribe to share, but since she has someone else on the other tribe she would rather be playing with, that kind of takes that strategy out of play.

The loved one twist definitely changes up the whole game in terms of strategy. So far, I like it.

I think RI also adds a twist. Brad would not be voted out at all if it weren't for RI. Like he's said it gives the voted out member a chance to vent and let everyone know what's going on.

But the finality of being voted off is taken out of the game. I miss that a lot. It takes away a lot of the drama from Tribal.

I agree with this. I kind of just says, you're going to go play the game somewhere else. And with 3 at RI, you have a 66.6% chance of staying in each week.
