They showed the guy laying around camp for what seemed like days, then the girl said something to him like "You need to slow down." Which made me think he had probably been wearing himself out hauling firewood or something which they never showed.

Then there was her idea to stack stones against the side walls and lean them against the structure. When he built a basic fire reflector out of rocks they tried to make it seem like that was her idea, but it wasn't. Her idea was stupid.

If I ever went on this show, I'd love to have a vegetarian as a partner. I'd get to eat anything I found! lol

I did see in that episode, the bananas that somebody was talking about. It was a huge bunch with had to be a hundred bananas on there.

The question was not whether I could guess where they might have gotten drinking water. It was whether it was shown at all on the episode.

I could guess all of the techniques people might use to survive in a given location, but that does not mean I do not want to see what people actually do.

It was interesting how at the beginning she said that she had no doubt that she could have survived the 21 days on her own. Then, near the end, she said how Tom's support really helped her get through it.

I did not see any images of them sharing body heat. Every time it showed their shelter, they were lying or sitting and barely touching each other at all. One time it showed Tom rubbing Lisa's back with his hand.

So, you would not "find" any bananas if you had a vegetarian as a partner?

Not that I'm enamored with the in your face Jersey style personality. They're likely Jets fans.

It was funny how as soon as Corinne tapped out, Chris was able to start a fire and caught a nice crab. Too bad Corinne had not brought a firestarter instead of a pot -- it seemed drinking water was easy to come by without boiling it, and the only time the pot got used was for the crab after Corinne was gone.

Chris was pretty tough to stick things out by himself, but it did seem like their location was among the easier ones we've seen on the show.

It was odd how Chris seemed surprised that he had to swim out to the boat at the end. In all the other episodes, the contestants somehow were informed that they had to build a raft or whatever to get to the pickup boat. Was it on the map and he missed it? Or did the producers screw up?

How did she ever get picked for the show? You could see almost from the first minute that there was no way she was going to make it to the end.

Maybe it's harder for them to find women for this show so they aren't as picky?

She could kick ass in obstacle course athletic events but had negative right stuff mentality for enduring harsh conditions, minimal survival skills (could weave), and an attitude the size of California. It was a good choice for our entertainment. She's lucky she didn't "accidentally" choke on a palm frond at night when the cameras were away.

Jersey guy could get on my nerves but the very least I could do would be to cooperate with a partner who did know what he was doing and was willing to work his tail off.

yes I believe this concludes season 3. Don't know why the last two seasons were so short.

Thetvdb.com lists a clip show on the 17th and has that as the last show of the season.
I would guess the seasons are short because it's a difficult show to produce. Casting, scouting, filming and editing etc take up a great deal of time.

I think you answered your own question.

The show this week was interesting. The duct tape wasn't a terrible idea, but not a substitute for fire. If they allowed 3 items I think they would always be a machete, fire starter, and duct tape.

As for the guy tapping out so soon, I have to wonder how much of his illness was nicotine withdrawal. I have known people who got physically ill when they quit. Seems like he should have recovered once he got some rest.

Finding the pineapples should have been a tremendous boon. I wonder if she went back and got more after he left.

I doubt she went back. It seemed like she just sat around camp for two weeks, except for getting water.

I wonder how many applicants the producers of the show get to choose from. Amanda was another strange one. How can someone who claims to be so modest about her body, and who "freaks out" at night when her partner accidently brushes her with his elbow or whatever, possibly think going on this show is a good idea?

The duct tape was an interesting twist. But it should never be first or second choice, I think. 1st and 2nd should always be a blade and a fire starter.

I wonder if they would let the participants bring a blade that has built-in rough steel and something to strike it with. I can't remember exactly where, but I am sure I have seen something like a hunter's knife that had a rough patch of steel near the handle, and something that you could pull out of the handle to strike a spark.

Then, a blade with a firestarter could be one item, and you could choose a metal pot (my preference) or duct tape for the second item.

I realize this was asked over a month ago, but the clip show that aired a couple weeks ago addressed it. The boat was unable to get close to shore because high winds were causing rough waters and they were afraid of the boat hitting the coral reef. So he was forced to swim a mile and half (i think) out to the boat.
