    I think Shan pushed her into it. I think most of the advantages are done. Lliana used the Knowledge one, Deshawn used his double vote.

    I think Xanders idol and maybe 1 other are the only ones left on the board right now.

    edit - Shan has one too. Ricard will probably make her burn it soon.

    Does Xander have an extra vote too? I thought he gave two things away

    Xander (Tiffany?) has the extra vote and idol
    Shan has extra vote and idol
    Naseer has an idol

    I think that’s all that’s left?

    TVLINE | Can you share something from that night that didn’t make the edit?
    Danny basically reamed Jeff out. He was like, “This isn’t a twist. This is a lie! You told us that if we won the challenge, we would get immunity,” and there was a long conversation about it. Jeff’s like, “OK, well maybe I can make it better for future seasons. What can I change?” I’m thinking like, “Really, bro?” I don’t want a change to go benefit someone else that I don’t f–king know because I don’t have empathy for them. What the hell do I care? This is about the now, and it’s about me getting f–ked over. That twist was intended to get a threatening player out, and I said during my pre-game interviews, in order to win Survivor, you can’t be the best at anything. So looking back, I was f–ked from the beginning because I’m the best at everything.

    The pace of this season is about to get crazy. I just used the 40 schedule for reference.
    7 episodes, 14 days, 11 left so far. That leaves 8 to go in just 12 days or 50% faster than the first 7. I’ve heard that this season is 11 or maybe 12 episodes, where the last several have been 14.

    I think the producers tried to rig the immunity challenge. The platforms they're standing on are calibrated based on height but Heather's allowed her to take a much wider stance than everyone else. Looks like they were trying to give her an edge... and she still lost.

    The Live tribal councils are awful, I’d much prefer to watch people strategizing back at camp. The producers need to find a good balance between keeping tribal interesting while also allowing gameplay to develop back at camp.

    I actually saw a clip posted on this but up until the last couple seasons this had been banned. Jeff deemed tribal a “public forum” and anything said should be heard by everyone. I doubt we get rid of it but I just don’t like the 20 minute tribals where everything gets hectic.

    Agree with others that Shan is playing too hard. She needed to dial it back a tad considering she was in the majority.

    Ad for Ricard, I don’t mind the guy. I also see both sides to the papaya disagreement. I don’t think it’s some major deal that Ricard wanted to just try a sliver, it’s something I would do, and try I get why Shan was pissed. I probably would have been too. It’s going to be fun watching those two turn on each other.

    They are. But everyone else has a much narrower stance in order to stay tall enough to keep pressure on the block of wood. She's got a wider stance and still managed to hold her block up.

    They really need to put in a stay-seated rule at tribal, and Jeff can’t give into them like he did last week.
    That shit eating grin heather had after the whispering like she actually did something really annoyed me.

    Big fan of Ricard eating the papaya. You’re on this show to outplay each other. Fucking do it.

    i think the reasoning is that somehow Naseer and Heather could've voted for Shan/Ricard, and Naseer use his idol, so the extra vote would be needed to still get Heather out, instead of playing an idol.

    but, from everything we saw, that's a ridiculous thought, and i think Ricard just wanted to get rid of it.

    Blue team messed up big time. D&D had the chance to align with X and Evie and be the strongest 4 by quite a bit and decided they’d rather roll the dice with the couple at each other’s throats all the time in Shan and Ricard. I guess we have a massive insight advantage, though.

    At this point you have to fight for the chance to drag Heather and Erika to final 3 and win automatically.

    Dragging Erica and Heather is so obvious that’s what Shan’s insistence to get them out it so weird.

    getting Nasser out was finally a move that made sense. Get rid of someone with an advantage.

    Pretty decent episode. Big fan of Nasser but I really do think the language barrier hut him big time.

    Also laughed at tribal council when Xander totally didnt read lines describing how great the campbells stew was.

    It’s so odd to me that everyone keeps targeting the lower end players in the game. Most of them are Type A personalities and eventually all need to go after each other. Surprised none of them have committed to stirring it up yet.

    Shan is running the game and has Liana in her back pocket.

    Agreed that splitting the vote splitting by Ricard and Shan, it made no sense.

    I think it made some sense but was still unnecessary. If Heather & Erika vote for either Shan or Ricard and Ricard and Shan put their votes on Naseer (without using extra vote), it's suddenly Shan/Ricard: 2, Naseer:2 and Heather:1. Naseer plays his idol and now Shan/Ricard go home. By doing it this way, they guarantee that Heather has at least 2 votes in case Naseer played his idol and she goes home.

    This should cause some decent chaos. meanwhile, Xander just needs to survive 2 tribals to be golden. He can likely win at least one immunity comp along the way. I think that he’s got the best shot of winning at this point.

    Hates the do or die at this point of the season.

    I think the vote was smart for the four. Now they can pick or Ricard.

    Deshawn is way to emotional for this game. I like him because he seems like a real good person but needs to get his emotions for the game in check.

    I too didnt mind the Do or Die twist, it at least gave the players the information to make a calculated decision. It was an interesting wrinkle as the "weaker" players sat out, making it harder to not finish last and thus win immunity.

    All of the new majority alliance being afraid to target Ricard is bonkers to me. He has done well in challenges, has a solid social game and made the biggest move so far. He was completely unprotected and it was the best time to do it. Xander being afraid to do it shows how dumb he is. He could have taken out Ricard this vote and worst case used his idol next vote. That gets him to the final 5 with a mashup of "weaker" players, I would prefer this over a continued battle with Ricard. Heather and Ericka are going to get carried to the end most likely, if Ricard sticks around long enough he will win.

    Xander did have a great point though, he would be the big target if Ricard is gone. Ricard will no doubt win if he gets to the end. The timing of his exit has to be perfect for Xander
