Hate.  Another advantage for Rob. So if a player come back at 6 or 5 players left they can have immunity?  Terrible.

Also, for next week

Ugh.

double ugh :yucky:

Not just Rob though.  Natalie bought a HII as well.

I've known my wife for 18 years, and I'm not sure I've ever seen her laugh as hard as when Adam tried to pry that fleur de lis off the podium last night. that was like Jerry Lewis level slapstick.

Yes you are correct.  At least she earned it.   Rob was only able to buy it cause Amber gave him hers.  No one is giving Natalie a token on EOE.

Really hope it's Nat that enters the game.  If not her then Yul.

Man, people really do hate Rob. Natalie got her first fire token because she was the only one there and Rob wasn’t there for the hiking challenge. If he was there earlier he would have had a few more. Amber giving him one is nice but Natalie was the first one out so you’d hate to have Rob go back with an idol but you’re OK with the first person out being able to win the whole season?

I am NOT ok with Natalie winning.  No one from Extinction has any business winning this or any season IMO.

Seems like when they gave out 4 tokens at once, it was pretty easy to get them.  Not hard work like carrying all that wood.

I don't think it is fair to the other players at all to have Amber and Rob in this game.  Don't forget, when she was voted out, she gave her fire token to Rob as well.

It's just too much of an advantage.

Eh, he had to give up his fire tokens when he was voted out. He, like Amber, Parvati, Tyson and Sandra had huge targets on there before any votes. Rob and Amber got voted out well before the merge so not really an advantage. Neither of them has made it back in so clearly Rob having Amber and his reputation sure wasn’t a helpful even if he got a few fire tokens.

Its such an advantage that they are both sitting on extinction.

ETA: I agree with you, just adding my thoughts.

It’s because they were together that they are both on extinction. How is it an advantage that both were voted out before the merge? Yes, one more person comes back but acting like a chance to come out if the loser’s bracket is some huge advantage. Who’s the top target of Ron comes back? Every person that Rob has been aligned with is on extinction in part because of their relationship to him.

Honestly, having her there hasn’t helped him overall. I’d say it hurt him because he didn’t have a chance to not have a target. Tyson is now playing it better. Just sit back and be a cog for a bit.

My point is, their "advantage" cuts both ways. Amber was voted off almost solely because of her relationship with Rob.

This is true to some point, but Natalie was voted off for having a close relationship with Jeremy.  I doubt if they were both on Extinction, she would just give him her tokens so he could try to win his way back in.

I'm slightly confused on remembering seasons it turns out... It happened in Survivor Australia season 5 (first All Stars with Russell Hamtz). A contestant received a clue and was told the idol was hidden under the lid of the vote urn, and retrieved it on his tribe's next visit to Tribal Council. 

But there is precedent for hiding an idol at Tribal, and US will borrow from Australia from time to time. Just another edition of the franchise.

If she was the first one back in I would be ok with it, just like I would be ok with Tyson winning. Not a fan of letting a second player back in.

I don’t mind how many come back but they need to be back by now. Coming back with 5 or 6 left means you get to the end without making enemies, build relationships with the jury and potentially without backstabbing anyone. It’s a massive advantage compared to actually playing the game.

This week was the funniest episode of Survivor I can recall. Certainly the funniest since the DvG episode where Angelina begged for a jacket. 
 

The entire tribal was hysterical even before Adam tried to play the podium as an idol.

I was hoping that Adam would just run up and shoulder tackle the podium, then stand up and just start smashing it.  Once the "idol" popped off, just stand up like nothing happened, play it and walk back to his seat.

Figured out an alternate way to do this with my Roku that is quite simple.  The web site Dailymotion has all of the episodes available for streaming.  Search for "Australian survivor season 1 dailymotion" or similar and you should find what you're looking for.  I verified that our Roku was setup for Screen Mirroring, then I used my Windows 10 laptop to connect to a wireless display and set my Roku as the wireless display.  Watching the first episode on our TV now.  Hope this helps!

 

Australian Survivor Season 01 was epic.  Loved it!  And if you needed another reason to watch, the overall cast of females in terms of eye candy is incredible.  😍

He's so scrawny, he would likely have bounced off of it and they would have had to call the medical staff to haul him away.

Several ways to do it:

  1. The web site Dailymotion has all of the episodes available for streaming.  Search for "Australian survivor season 1 dailymotion" or similar and you should find what you're looking for.  This is the easiest and the way that we watched.  Just hook your laptop up to the TV and away you go.
  2. If you have a VPN and can set your location to Australia, you can watch directly from the Play10 channel web site
  3. Torrents

This has been such a good season.  I had no idea where the final vote was going.  I'm still trying to figure out who voted for who.  Jeremy made a good decision for himself, but ultimately his ship is sunk.

Im torn.  On the one hand they did need his vote.  but once he noticed Sarah was gonna play and advantage, then i think he knew it was going to be a slim chance.  Also i think he knew the votes were coming at him and really, if would come down to a big guess on who to play the idol for.  It could be a huge risk because his tribe may be mad.  However, if both tribes are down on him they may decide to let him stay since he has noone.  Im thinking it was a good decision for him to do that.  But we shall see how it was received.

Oh yeah, I think it was the decision he had to make at the time.  I think he had the right read that he was going home, just put him in an almost no win situation.  But much like March Madness it is survive and advance.

IMO, allowing the talking after he left defeated the power. Should have been.. " Time to vote", he stands, gives idol walks out and Jeff sends them to vote immediately. No secret discussing.. Better have had a backup plan in place or you are screwed.

More power to the idol and the scrambling would have been entertaining :popcorn:

completely agree.  I assumed that would be the case. It made it completely unfair that they could re-strategize after that.  Not granted most of the time they have 2 or three backup plans in place so i would assume they would have but still.  I did find that odd.

That would be a good rule change.  Once he asks if anyone has anything they want to play the communication has to stop.

the whole "people openly talking at Tribal Council" thing was awesome at first and still interesting at times, but really ruins a lot of the strategic part of the game.

I agree. Kind of sucks the wind out of the other people who were aligned with him when the majority can sit there and plan everything out. The biggest part is that after he did that Sarah was able to then play her advantage and still steal a vote.

All that said, since it was 6-3, why did they split the vote 4 and 2? If Kim plays the HII for Tyson, Sophie goes home. Why wouldn't you do 3 and 3 and then if a HII come out you re-vote and vote 6-0 on Denise?

Not only did they huddle, Sarah was also able to play her steal a vote minutes after Jeff said let's vote and Jeremy stopped him. Once Jeff says let's vote, it needs to be over. It's like an auction where someone throws in the last second bid and then while the auction house validates that bid someone else can jump in with a new bid even though the auction is over.

There should be a let's vote no more discussion, give me any special things and then Jeff reads out what people played (including idols) and let's people vote knowing all the special things but not letting them re-huddle, play another special thing, etc.

I know a lot of you guys bag on the loved ones visit episode. It still gets me. Every time. Especially this one.  Maybe it's because I have young children.

If my theory of duos is the theme and the winner is part of one of the duos, Cops-r-Us took a big step forward.

This makes me think even more they changed it up right at tribal and didn’t think it out.  Which means they were going all in on Jeremy.

And the fact that they never read the third vote on Sophie, makes me wonder if one of the 4 actually voted for Tyson too just to protect themselves. And like you said, doing it 4-2 made zero sense. I was almost yelling at my tv as the votes were read that it was so stupid

I’ve warmed up a ton to Tony, right when it looks like he’s in trouble next week.

Sophie is sneaky good.  I don’t remember her at all before this.  Don’t remember Kim or Denise, either.  Maybe I have a mental block on female winners for some reason.

Was that Natalie’s kid or her sister’s?  I love Natalie but agree it wouldn’t be fair for her to come back in.  At this point rooting for Yul to return.

It was nice, but the episode was more than half over when they actually got back to the game. Felt like a half hour episode, really quick. Tribal had a lot of goings on, but it was just so quick.
