    I think I would agree with that.

    Another question on the "hidden" immunity idol:

    Can you re-use it? Or if you use it when you would have been voted off, then do you have to give it up? If you can re-use it, then why not just announce you have it as soon as you find it? You're safe until the final four, and everyone will consider you someone important to have as an ally, because you'll easily be the swing vote.

    The hidden immunity idol is a one-use item. Use it, give it up, it gets re-buried on Exile Island for someone else to find.

    It's definitely a strategic decision. If you annouce it early, your tribe could simply vote for you the next time you go to TC, knowing that you won't go home, but that you'll have to use the idol and that will take it out of play. Last season, the person who had it never explicitly told others that he had it, but he made some strong hints and the rest of the tribe had strong suspicions, so they were never comfortable voting for him at all. The unknown factor was actually more beneficial than the actual knowledge that he had the idol.

    That's the assumption, but we don't know that for sure. It was never used last season and it was never explicitly said that it would have been reburied on EI if it had been.

    Terry (Survivor 12) never used his and Gary (2 shows ago, Survivor 11) used his but the idol (that season)wasn't re-hidden. So, technically, the idol has never been re-buried.

    For some reason, I doubt that it would be reburied if used once. I think it's a one-shot deal for everybody. Once it's been found and used, that's it.

    no he said though the final 4.

    terry had it last year and never needed it since he won the ICs to stay alive and get to final 3. there he lost the biased challenge and either fianlist would not take him to the final two since he was the most dominant player in the game, well as dominant as can be without making final two/winning.

    Regarding Cao Boi's name:

    Cao Boi is from down the road from here in Christiansburg, VA. The Roanoke newspaper has been doing stories on him and here's some info that hopefully can dispel some of the confusion about his name. It also talks about the necklace and the dog tags he wears among other things.

    Full story here: LINK (He seems to be a pretty cool dude if you ask me.)

    it's small but if it was only buried 1 foot down in the sand it would be tough/tiring to find just digging randomly.

    on the treasue hunters they had a challenge with buried object in dirt about oh 2 ft down and the area was about 20 ft square. it took a couple teams like 6 hours to find the item and each team had 3 members. no matter the dirt vs sand and how far down just saying unless you just lucked out it could be really hard instead of a cinch.

    I thought the "bad wind" comes out of the opposite end of the body. ;)

    Overall I enjoyed these groups.

    I bet the hidden idol is buried when preparations first start for a new survivor show as otherwise the disturbance in the ground would be easier to help track down the idol. I hope it is buried along the shoreline.. though that would make it very difficult to excavate as the tide keeps burying and sucking the idol back down.

    one more question, if you find the idol, do you take it with you or leave it hidden? it seems strange that if someone found it and took it, and then the next week someone else is sent to exile islnd there is nothing left to look for..

    Unless the person who found it chooses to reveal it, no one knows if it has been found. So if you're the second, third, etc. going to exile island, you never know if its still on the island or not.

    One thought I had - I don't know if this was intention or not, but it was very smart on the part of the girls to let the boys pick who should go to Exile Island. That way, if it ever comes back to bite someone in the butt, the girls' hands will be fairly clean.

    I don't think it was intentional at all...it works out well for them, as you say, but I didn't see anything to indicate that they did that on purpose...

    I'd have to say that this has the most interesting cast for me since the early seasons. I'm guessing that's because they did recruit rather than take from auditions, so they have fewer people who are just there to launch an acting career. I enjoyed it a lot!

    My coworker said that he heard on the radio that Seku stated that he took a break AFTER working for 5 straight hours under a hot sun. Did anyone else hear this in any of his interviews?

    Kinda shady if it is true. Everyone has to keep in mind that Survivor is a HEAVILY edited show. I am sure that other ppl in the other tribes rested also but that was not shown at all.


    Don't put it past the producers to pull some shady stuff on purpose. In the first half of the ep they showed CowBoy talking about how he was educated and was not a stereotype. As he was saying he was educated they show him eating the coconuts caveman style and as he mentioned he was NOT a stereotype they pull up the graphic stating he owns a nail salon.


    There has been talk that a couple ppl from either the 'black' or 'hispanic' team might be of mixed race. black/white hispanic/white black/hispanic.
    I didn't think so while watching the ep but if it is true and there is a survivor who is 50% of another race it makes you wonder what led to the decision of them being on the tribe they are on.

    early show interview said he did 5 hours yes...
    all big brother/survivor fans need to press Tivo 7 and set up a manual "early show" recording for every friday :) The 3 minutes of stuff on there are actually good at times.

    Nah, it is so much easier just to have people come in here and tell us what they said instead of having to FF through 1:30 of show just for the 3 minutes we want. ;)
