    Technically, Filipinos are pacific Islanders, not asian. They are not even of mongolian descent. just saying.

    i like survivor, no matter how they do it. Doesn't get old for me.

    And funny how all the teams have hot, bikini-worthy chicks, except for the black team.

    There were Vietnamese twin brothers in my high school class, their names were Khanh and Khánh. They went by Khanh #1 and Khanh #2, even though to native Vietnamese speakers, there was no cause for confusion. Except for them being identical twins, of course.

    There's also that other Vietnamese star of reality TV with monosyllabic first and last names:

    My TIVO didn't record this because I had disconnected one of my SAT inputs yesterday doing a test. It doesn't look like they'll rerun it though. What's the best way to see episode 1? I don't want to watch next weeks before seeing the first one.

    Just for the record, Gervase has said he is lazy, and being lazy was part of his strategy.

    :confused: The Hiki tribe lost the challenge and therefore did not get flint after TC like the others. They did know this at the time they were trying to convince Stephannie not to vote with the other girls.

    The other three tribes got flint after the challenge. The Hikis got it at the end of tribal council, after they voted. Jeff tossed it to them right at the end of the show, and told them to "grab your torches and head back to camp."

    Regarding the clue on EI: Were those trees that were growing naturally in an "A" shape, or were they big logs that were erected there? I thought it was the latter, and thus thought it reasonable that he thought of making them into a A. However, he didn't think about the rest of the clue which told him something like being in a line, where the southern isle disappears from view. Perhaps he needs to line up the southern isle in his view between the two logs of the "A" and then back up (to the north) until the southern isle disappears below the horizon, meaning that the horizon line would make the crossbar of the "A" and telling him where to dig.

    Did anyone else notice Jeff said something about the clue for exile island being related to "the location of the island", not the location of the hidden idle? Maybe I was just hearing things, but I thought twice he mentioned figuring out the location of an island.

    i watched the first season of survivor, then skipped 11 seasons cause it lost my interest, and then i started up again last night.. what is the exile island? i don't get the rules for what happens when they find this idol, do they become immune for the rest of the game or can they use it once whenever, or what's the story with that? also, is the idol usually buried, hidden in a tree trunk, how many seasons have they had it and where was it usually hidden? is it possible in order to vanish the south island from view to make the tree trunks and horizon form an "a" he may have to step in the water.. maybe it's burried somewhere in the water.. i'm just more curious what this exile island is..

    The hidden idol is good for individual immunity that can be used *through* the final four. It can be held or given away by the owner. The holder can wait until after the vote and then pull it out to save themself (or someone else?).

    This will only be the 3rd such idol. Last season it was buried on Exile Island it it took (as I recall) three clues for someone to dig it up. The season before that it was on the forest floor in some rather undefined space. It was found and used although the rules were different then.

    So, I'd be surprised if the first person with a clue finds it. What happened last year is it was found then people kept getting sent to the island without knowing if they had anything to dig for or not. It was a bit confusing.

    They just started with Exile Island on the last season. It's the third time for a hidden immunity idol.

    A hidden immunity idol can be buried, up in a tree, embedded on rocks, etc.
    Each episode somebody goes to Exile Isle and gets a clue to its whereabouts -- even if somebody has already found it. It's all a big secret.

    If someone finds it, when they return to the game and participate in challenges and wind up on the losing tribe, they all go to Tribal Council where one person has won an Immunity Challenge (IC) and tribemates vote for anybody except the IC winner. After the votes are read out, if the person who found the hidden immunity idol gets the most votes to leave the island, they can whip out their hidden immunity idol and remain in the game. The person with the second-most votes then gets booted out of the game.

    Last season, the guy who found the hidden immunity idol then went on to win almost every Immunity Challenge and never needed to use the hidden immunity idol, as it was redundant -- although nobody else knew for sure if it had been found by anybody or not. He could have given it to someone else, but kept it for himself.

    As Probst mentioned, you can use it all the way up until the "final four". That's about the time the guy got booted out -- at around the final four or three.

    Something else to add about Exile Island: Each time a new person goes, they get a new clue as the the whereabouts of the idol, but they also get the previous clues given to the people who were there before them. This means that by about the 3rd or 4th time, someone should be able to find the idol and will then have a huge advantage.

    Not sure how they'll select people to go to EI this season, but last season there were times when the winning tribe got to select someone from the losing tribe to go to EI on the night that tribe was supposed to go to TC, thus allowing someone who was likely going to be voted out a chance to stay in the game longer.
