You do realise that this was filmed a couple of months before Australian Survivor was? So it’s more likely that Aus Survivor got the idea from discussions with the US team, or both got this challenge idea form another international version.
Last week this season fell into place for me. It was one of the very rare times ever pre-merge that every single contestant got a confessional. I think it’s why this season pre-merge was OK but not amazing. It’s a pretty even and consistent cast of players (who never got to play to hard with such small tribes). Which means good things come the merge I reckon.
Last night’s merge episode was great. I feel like we have a lot of strong players in this group and the gameplay is just going to go into overdrive. There have been consistent rumours that this is a pretty crazy season post merge and that tribal seemed to really kick things off. So glad that Chirssy survived, she is the one contestant I really would love to see this. Such a smart and strong player. Surprised to see Jessica go though as some of the Survivor boards I was reading a lot of people seemed to think she was going to win.
The preview for next week looks insane. It literally looks like Cole lifts and grabs Chrissy in a lock to try and get the Idol or clue off her.
