Survivor Ghost Island Season 36

Post by Dude » Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:43 pm

The season is starting out pretty interesting,
the contestants didn't get thrown off a boat this season,
Jacob was funny when he put his shoes down and they got washed out to sea.
with his neurotic personality he reminded me of Cochran, but Jacob was not nearly as luck and got voted out.
I can't remember the guys name but he found the idol at night, then he made a fake idol and started telling people about that?
that does not seem like a great idea to me, I am still trying to figure out how that is going to help his game?
seems like he should stick with either not telling people about the idol, or telling them about it,
trying to convince people that a fake idol is real seems like it's way over thinking the problem.

Great start, I am looking forward to the next episode.

Survivor: Ghost Island kicked off with a two-hour premiere episode that sent not just one but two castaways waving goodbye to the competition.

ME- Stephanie. She came on too strong and that puts a target on your back. Has she not been watching any seasons? It appears to me that not many people 'really' know themselves.

I have not seen the 2nd ep yet.

The second episode...

That block challenge was brutal.

Jacob. As one of the girls said 'he lacks in social skills'. Perhaps he is also not likable.

Anyway, with all his conniving he got his fire snuffed.

Remember Cochran? He is one of the rare nerds that did well. He I believe was more likable.

It was fun, rather nice, to see that 'strange guy' Donathon redeem himself. The underdog that might surprise everyone. Hell, he surprised himself. He was sent to Ghost Island. I saw some girls fawning over him. I would want to quickly become his friend. He is the kind of player that can take you to the final 3 and perhaps save your neck along the way. Donathon...first time to come across that name. https://www.babycenter.com/baby-names-d ... 567065.htm

Too early in the game to know what will unfold. We hear more about playing a physical game and a social game.
Alliances are very important. I note 2 of the stronger players being chummy. That can be the kiss of death. Keep your enemies close....and keep your friends farther in the game of Survivor. You might end up in the final 3.

I need a list of names to keep track of everyone.

James Lim
Laurel Johnson,
Michael Yerger,
Jenna Bowman
Brendan Shapiro,
Stephanie Johnson,
Libby Vincek,
Donathan Hurley

Out
Stephanie Gonzalez

it's way to early to say who has a chance of making it deep into the game.

Another good show,
they really smoked on the giant puzzle, I was surprised to see how fast they put it together.
After they came up with the new tribes, I thought there would be some strategy about losing on purpose to vote out the other team members.

It doesn't seem like anyone is taking into account that if your on Ghost Island then your guaranteed to stay in the game, that seems like an important detail that no one talks about.

When Chris was crying I thought it was funny, it seemed so out of character for him, but I guess he doesn't like being alone.

Yes..that puzzle solving was amazing. Left the other team well. 'puzzled' and scratching their heads.

Another blindside.

Re Chris....never seen anyone cry that much. I wonder how women will see him after they see this ep...and he returns.

We don't see much fishing or other activities. They must be bored. Didn't we see a guy with a crab trap that he made ...early episode?

The complainer guy is toooo much. Did he think this was Club Med? Suck it up cupcake.

yes, when he said something like he can complain as much as he wants while they are voting out the other team one by one,
it made me think of all the other over confident people who got voted out.

just watched the latest episode,
the challenge was something, that huge comeback was almost unbelievable,
it really made me wonder if they were trying to lose so they could vote out one of the people from the other old tribe?
they were so far ahead it seemed almost impossible that they could lose.

And the tribal was really good, but I am still confused at to what happened?
they needed one person to flip but it looked like everyone flipped??
the numbers don't add up, it should have been 4 votes from the one side and they at most 4 from the other side, I mean unless one of them voted for them self???

The swap right at first was a real shake up, but they gave that away in the preview last time.

it was funny when Chris was saying how exhausting it was talking to the other people, and that he didn't want to tell them he was a model because he didn't think it would be benaficiarerly to himself.
then he hits Sebastian with the machete, but I guess he didn't hurt him much because if there would have been blood I am sure they would have shown it.

Bradley - great line - maybe I am as fantastic a player as I think I am. That sounds like someone who is getting ready to get voted out.

Domenick - in the game when everyone was blindfolded he is yelling at them I need all the white pieces. :D

The vote surprised me a little, everyone voted for James, I didn't think it was going to go that way.

I also noticed an ad that Bill Gates was going to be on the next Big Bank Theory, I think I would like to see that.

Yeah, I don't know what happened with the vote,

my guess is that Michael just thought that there was no way that James had a chance so he might as well vote with the group to help himself fit in better on the next vote :?:
or he figured it was between him and James so one extra vote for James might help keep himself in the game?

it would be nice if they would let everyone know what happened because it seemed very different than what they were talking about.

But I guess there is always a lot of talk, then when people vote you find out what is really going on.

As one of the female players said...there was not much 'social' going on with James. He does have a bit of a..? not that friendly..approachable look about him. Michael was aware how the group felt and it was in his best interest to follow the group. He had to do what was best for him. It was either him or Desiree...and even though she took resposibility for losing the challenge, they made a choice. The 3 females had a lot of say in this. It's also about looking forward.
