    In Jeff's blog, he doesn't give any indication as to who it is, but he does say this:

    ... I am going to be honest that for a few seconds during next week’s episode I was really worried we were in danger of losing a contestant… forever.

    Jeff's blog reminded me of what happened during the challenge -
    I was seeing what was happening and thinking her team should have been yelling louder then Dave to drown him out. I think Ashlee may have made it if it wasn't for the crap she had to listen to, though I know that was a good strategy on their part.

    I'm getting where I pretty much despise short Russell. He has almost no redeeming value.

    I'm also getting fed up with all the city idiots on this season. The palm limbs (or however you spell frawns?) are supposed to be all stacked in the same direction so that the water runs down on their leaves and drop to the next and run down. They've made their shelter with them laying each way alternating and no slope. What a bunch of dopes.

    The fire thing was a complete joke. You just use a big knife or machete to chop into the wood to expose dry parts and then stack on the fire. Doh!!!

    All the wimpy little girls had no problems with their feet or hands. They should go home next. :D

    I thought I heard some of the women own that they were just as much responsible as Russell. Sure he made the decision, but at the time the women seemed to give him the go ahead. Ultimately the decision was up to him, but he wasn't really alone in making it, which is why I think we aren't seeing more complaining about it.

    I think I know why they put more contestants on this season, because they knew they might lose more along the way. Since it looks like we lose another to the medivac next week, that means two more are gone. I then believe we will see the merge.
    I think the "jungle rot" is going to become a more serious issue for several of them.

    You really think they expected to have multiple medevac situations and compensated by putting more contestants on the show?

    Maybe they ought to import Les Stroud (survivorman) or distant second, Bear Grylls to help out.:rolleyes:

    I was theorizing how they are going to deal with more contestants.

    I think they knew the conditions would be harsh and more would bail, not necessarily that they knew or hoped somebody would be seriously injured and flown out. I am sure they are also going with some statisitics based on conditions at Samoa. Several members seem like they want "out" with this rain, even though they say they don't want to leave. The more contestants you have the greater chances of someone being hurt and discouraged. Look at the "rugby" challenge. They hope no one gets seriously hurt, but it was such a physical competition that Jeff had to give a warning, then he pulled Ben and then whats his name got "injured". I was trying to think how they are going to deal with the "extra" contestants and maybe they were counting on more casualties one way or another.

    Do you know if this season is going to be several weeks longer than others?

    They have done things before like sending both tribes to Tribal Council in the same 3 day 'cycle', so I'm sure they had scenarios planned where they would whittle down the numbers within the parameters of the game. If anything, unexpected evacs and things like that cause them to modify the plans they had for multiple eliminations if need be.

    As the Captain said, they simply have both tribes go to tribal council in the same episode. They've started a season with 20 players before, and that's how they've handled it.

    "Good" Russell sure has let leadership go to his head.

    If you DON'T want to know who gets injured next week do not look at the videos on the CBS survivor site. They completely reveal who it is.

    I guess I'm a sucker for spoilers. As soon as I read your post, I headed over there. It took me a minute to find it. All I could find was the "Next time on...Survivor..." preview. I can only say, "WOW!"

    I'm really surprised they had that clip out before the show aired. Will still be interesting to see how the whole thing plays out.

    +1. I'm watching the Patriot/Titan game on CBS, and they just aired this clip. No big deal for me, as I had previously spoiled myself online (that sounds dirty), but I hadn't thought they'd reveal who it was. A teaser is just that, a tease. This ain't a teaser, although maybe they are hoping people will tune in just to see if the injured person must leave the game, etc.

    I always wonder about why the tribes don't continue to improve their camps through the show. (Unless they just don't show it on TV). It always seems like they build their camp and that's it. They seem to have lots of free time when they could work on a better roof. Build a covering over the fire area (with a hole in the center of the roof for the smoke) so they can have a fire when it's raining. The way the show airs it seems like they build something the first few days and that's it.

    I've always wondered that too. Seems like with 39 days and not a whole lot to do, you could have a Swiss Family Robinson treehouse like at Disneyland. :D

    I think in past seasons (although not a lot) we've seen a few camps make a few modifications to their shelters.
