Not sure what I hate more, Donathan's voice or Stephanie's ridiculous fake tits. They're both incredibly distracting.

Was he just that bad of a swimmer? I didn't understand how he was having so much trouble, especially for a guy that looked to be in pretty good shape.

As someone who can't swim (or even float), it's eludes me how someone literally can't Go Down In The Water, since it's the default direction for me.

I think Dom went on the show with the singular goal of making a fake idol.

I have no idea how people still think they're getting away with that idiocy. People aren't stupid.

Some people are just there to angle for a second season I guess.

I listened to part of the RHAP with Joe Mena and the guy just kept going on about Making Big Moves but not once did he figure out how to actually win a game of Survivor.

The most blatant 'production tells them to say this' is when the producers told the Upolus to laugh during the Jack and Jill reward that they 'won'.

This is partly why Sophie Clarke is one of my favourite winners, because she had no time for that poo poo.

Zesty posted:

Ghost Island as a game mechanic is bad. Itís just exile island with an optional gamble. Not having the chance at the advantage makes the whole gimmick a wet fart for that episode. Even if you get the option to gamble your vote, the nebulous advantage so far was something that doesnít even benefit the person who made the gamble. The whole concept punishes the player for taking a risk.

Now if they had it where you TRADE your vote for an advantage, that might be something. But no one should want to risk coming out behind.

I got my on but I'm thinking that you can't actually lose the "game" but they just word it that way to stave off cowards.

I fully expect to be incredibly wrong about this.

blue squares posted:

I think they just didn't show Donathan talking because we had just hard his story moments ago. The editors aren't going to waste time having him tell the story twice in a row, and the take they got from the confessional must have been better.

The body language looked like he was just nodding and looking for a way out of the conversation while Chris droned on for hours but that might just be wishful thinking.

What exactly is an advantage? Is it just an immunity idol with specific rules?

"Advantage" is catchall for some kind of bonus effect whether it's an Immunity Idol, vote steal, legacy advantage, opportunity to practice a future challenge, whatever.

No one said they have to smash the pots in order on Ghost Island right?
Also it seems like most of them have been duds so far

A producer is probably standing right off camera saying "smash the one on the left"

Otherwise you'll get dumb stuff like the Legacy Advantage showing up on day 12 or something.

Is anyone else thinking Desiree and Kellyn are screwed early to mid merge? I think it was James who was talking about how it's bad play to foreclose any possibility of working with the other side, and in the modern era of Survivor, this is absolutely true. I guess maybe they've made an arrangement with Michael, but if the show's not showing it, it probably isn't a factor.

So Kellyn and Desiree should have instead voted for Desiree? Don't think you thought this plan all the way through.

Schlonged Again posted:

I think the problem is partly this, but mostly it's that the constant and pointless tribe swaps have ruined the pre-merge game. It's been an issue for a few seasons now, but it's very evident this season.

If they didn't swap tribes then Malolo would probably keep losing tribe immunity challenges and the end results would be.... a bunch of Malolo going home!

Fast Luck posted:

Angela sucks but i guess these specific people didn't betray Angela AND original naviti will clearly have the numbers in future swaps and at merge so maybe not the most opportune time to vote against them. Her best hope is Chris gets voted out soon so she can just sit there safe and anonymous at the bottom of the majority alliance totem pole until the moment to do some moves presents itself. I doubt she was considering that stuff though and she seems like shes just a dumb rigid person that drank KellyN's kool aid

Yeah James got really unlucky that the other Naviti on this tribe weren't the ones that tried to double cross Angela.

Did we ever see what side of the Chris/Dom divide Kellyn and Desiree were on? If it was shown at all it would have been in ep 1 and I didn't know the players well enough at the time to remember.
