If they were evacuated, they should all be DQ'ed.

Huge mistake this last tribal council. Just in case it's still on your DVR...

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
When's the last time they DIDN'T switch up tribes after the fourth tribal council??? If you're a super-fan you should know that. Playing your idol for someone else when the whole game is about to change in less than 24 hours is a huge mistake. Keep the idol. You may need it in your new tribe.

Was glad to see last night's vote. The Millenials have a huge edge in challenges and numbers, but so many of them are really bad players. Glad to see that finally get punished.

I'll never understand why they continually pick people who have never watched the show and/or have no idea how to play the game. It's the same thing with big brother. Some of these people are very frustrating to watch.

I think we're getting lots of super-fans actually, and they're all thinking way too deep. More like Joe Maddon type errors than just being stupid.

True or false: Taylor was one of the ten worst players in Survivor history?

I'm leaning towards true. He did try to play an interesting gambit at Tribal Council, but other than that he was just a moron. An entertaining moron, sure, but a moron.

Not loving that they're putting back-to-back episodes on tonight. TV watching won't kick in until sometime during Friday's turkey coma (football excepted).

Yeah I was not expecting that when I went to fast forward to the scenes for next week at 8:57 on my DVR

Great ending on the 2nd episode

A good epic breakdown during the closing credits. They're certainly playing hard.

Why in the holy hell would they agree to go to rocks? Both of the players up for eviction have flipped and flopped all game. Cut one them move on.

You gotta make that decision to avoid rocks before tribal though. Cochran flipped in his first appearance to avoid rocks, and wound up ostracized and on the bottom immediately after.

Hey guys (or just Frank as it appears to be) - I caught this season, it was pretty good, a couple of hilariously bad moves early (to speak to Frank's question - Taylor and probably Figgie were probably two of the dumbest players, but not the worst, since people will usually keep around someone semi-athletic), a lot of people playing too hard, and telling everyone that would listen that they were playing too hard, but some good moves and some good television.

One trend I am happy to see is that players respect good game play more in recent seasons, and don't just vote for who hurt their feelings the least. Not sure if this a result of Survivor getting more fans on the show, the show becoming more popular, or just the next generation not being such a bunch of Sallys. The all time worst of this was of course when a bunch of alleged "all-stars" voted Sandra (who was brought to final tribal because she was completely useless ALL GAME) the champion because my guy Russell Hantz and Pavrati had hurt their feelings when outsmarting them all game... that was the the true low point of the show and an insult to the game, Probst, and all the great players that have played it... Probst even sounded off on them in the Reunion.

Next season could be interesting with "game-changers" though it appears they whiffed on most of the actual game changers and had to extend the offer to some third tier contestants - am excited to see Tony the cop from a few seasons, will root against Ozzy (good athlete, terrible strategic player, and one of the ultimate you hurt my feelings guys as noted above) and Sandra (won two Survivors with a strategy of be so useless noone will view me as a threat and hope that the jury is butthurt at the good players, just awful). Sure there are a few other players I might like though...
