of course they put Daniel saying, "I love this twist. Jeff had a great idea"

my god 

i dont know, i loved the premire but i might be 3-4 episodes away from checking out of this season. cant stand these advantages 

The girl who went home was disgusting I'm so happy we will never see her again! Maryanne won this episode per usual queen stays on top 

The beware advantage is easily the worst Survivor twist of all time

besides the Hourglass one

I cant believe they kept this horrible twist 

Well this was filmed back to back with 41 so it's not like they had time to check out fan reaction to the twists and changed it accordingly. So I'd even expect the hourglass twist to happen too and the Do or Die challenge.

the beware advantage twist isn't that bad imo.

there is absolutely no reason someone should be penalized for finding an advantage/idol on survivor. it makes aboslutely no sense.

no penalization if you're the third to find it. and it clearly states "beware advantage" too and you don't NEED to take it. they're only in play bc the people finding them are taking them. the whole concept could be null and void if nobody wants to take a "beware" advantage which to me quite clearly would indicate there's some sort of penalty incoming

Agreed. Hate twists but they were warned and made a decision knowing their were consequences 

As much as I hate the shot in the dark twist, I'm glad they are actually using it this season. It is ridiculous so many people went home last season without trying.

Also, do y'all think they changed the editing after the season 41 backlash?

Nah the beware advantage is shit, the phrases are stupid, and there's such little benefit for it, im sure if they bring it back on 43 nobody is going to take it .

But let's be real, nobody is going to see a warning about a vague penalty and think that means you lose your vote for multiple tribal councils..... they take probably thinking at most they risk 1 vote. 

 

I'm tired of the sob stories...still good pace though to this show.

I like it because I feel like you're at least getting to know people more. They're definitely focusing more on personal connection than just strategic, which they also include for good measure. I like this new style of editing. I just need them to distribute it more fairly so that no one simply dominates the screentime and keeps you guessing.

I don't need the sob stories.  It seems intentional when it comes to casting and while I like this cast so far I think it often ruins casting.  

Don't watch then

I'm not a fan of sob stories either. I don't mind real and authentic stories, like Mariah losing her brother to covid. But I don't need 18 sob stories especially when your story is how hard life was because youre different. Everyone is different get over it. But luckily those stories phase out after the first few episodes.

Something about this cast is so much more likeable than 41. 

I've grown to have mixed feelings on the Beware Advantage because at the very least, powerful idols aren't just hiding under every other rock anymore. Now there's actual risk to finding a beware advantage and actual consequences. Since they've completely given up on Exile Island, I guess I should be more thankful that they make idols more difficult for the individual, even if it's Big Brother levels of corny silliness.

after Jeff has screamed at contestants for years, "You HAVE to take risks and always go for things". 

It is the stupidest idea in history. Imagine if Parvati or Russell found this and were screwed till the merge bc the other tribes couldn't find it? Of course if you find an "advantage' knowing 40 past seasons you'll take it. 

I think this cast is so much better than 41. To be honest, we can blame producers when they tried to make a one woman show. Don't get me wrong, Shantel IS a Survivor legend and that's something we can all agree on but when you look at airtime for each player then of course you won't appreciate someone like Heather who got bamboozled in the edit. I think this cast will bring it, I hope I'm right.

I feel terrible for Marya, Jackson being removed screwed her too. Such a small tribe and it's hard to make a decision. I will say if this wasn't a 6 person tribe game to begin with then Marya would be fine. I wish it was the white girl going home but other than tweaking timster, nobody wanted to see a WOC go out.

I love Drea the most, something about her cutthroat and assertive ways honestly is so interesting to watch. You can tell she trucks everyone in her way in real life and hasn't had crashed into a wall yet. Now go get that ***** Tori out! 

Favorites: Drea, Maryanne, Jonathan (shocker, ya'll know I don't root for this kind but he seems very sweet & genuine), Mike, Chanelle (I heard she's an ORG'er, she will be a player)

Middle: Rocksroy (king was doing perfect in episode 1 until he started giving directions around camp, wtf?), Jenny (girl, give me the real you not this nice lady for the cameras.), Romeo (kingie is playing so well!), Hai (my husband but we gotta do something about that vegan thing), Omar

Dislike: Lindsay (sis is looking rough as **** out there already, white does crack huh?), Swati (I have a lot to say about her but let's see how this plays out, not a fan tho. Sumn smells here and I think I'll be right about this one), the white cow from the green tribe.

Hate: Tori & Daniel 

We agree 100% on Drea but you know I live Tori too. I also like Lindsay, she just seems like the fun/chill coworker that you love hanging out with. I do think you might be right about Lydia, I can see her becoming unlikable. I'm still undecided Hai, I liked him the first episode but him crying over eating crab like come on. You knew what this show was prior and animals are designed to eat animals so shut up. But he can win me back next week.

Wrong. All Shantel screentime was earned and deserved..blame the rest of the boring cast for not delivering AFTER she was out. Everyone was boring and monotone. Every single person. Think about it. That ain't an editing problem, that's a lame cast.

Girl, I love Shantel. I just think some pivotal moments not showing us others sucked.

Random but I hate when they start with 3 tribes. 

Random but I hate when they start with 3 tribes. 

I hate it when they do that too.

Hate this edit...100% convinced I'm going to be mad

Took 3 episodes for the twists to ruin this season.  Hopefully Chanelle is the next to go for her decision
