    I listened to an exit interview with Scot and he said it was Jason's idea to give it to Scot so all three of them would be safe at TC. He didn't say anything about it being required that the person votes out must have at least one of the pieces in his possession.

    Think about it from the producers point of view. They just want to make great TV. What would be better and more shocking than someone getting saved after the votes are read when they didn't even have one half of the Super Idol? Making a rule to prevent this wouldn't make any sense.

    This only makes sense if they were planning on playing them as actually HIIs. If they were always planning on using it as a SI (which it sure seemed that way), then Scot holding one half was totally unnecessary.

    Good point.

    Do we know this for sure? So, if Scot would have slipped it to Jason, what would happen? When Jason went to play it later, Probst would say it was no good?

    What if nobody knew who had an idol? And they slipped it to someone else after being voted off? Would the producers/Jeff bust them? They'd then be putting themselves in the game with info they only have because of the cameras.

    Or what if it was Scots, but he left it at camp buried, and someone else found it? Or he told someone as he was leaving where it was?

    Based on some info I heard and inferred from the exit interviews this week, I think the rules of the idol require that if one player gives it to another, it has to be done in view of the cameras so the producers know at all times who has the Idol. So that's why we saw Tai give the idol back to Jason after the previous TC, and also why we saw Jason giving the idol to Scot before this TC. So if Scot were sitting there at TC and realized he was going and simply set the idol on the ground by his stool so that it didn't leave the game with him, and then Jason saw this and picked it up, I think the idol would still be dead because Scot didn't properly transfer it to someone else before he was voted out.

    I don't know what happens if he buries it and someone else finds it. But I know the rules of the idol are that the idol can't be stolen from you, so my guess is that if it's buried and someone else finds it, it still belongs to the person who buried it. If the person who buried it has been voted out of the game, then I'm fairly certain the producers would retrieve the buried idol and either replace it somewhere with a new clue, or remove it from the game completely.
