    D'oh. I thought that was Eddie, not Malcolm, since they cut right to Eddie putting his vote in the urn.
    Trolling dates all the way back to 397 B.C. - People began following Plato around and would make fart noises after everything he said.

    I thought it was Eddie too... and Eddie could be that clueless to vote Sherri LOL.

    In Malcolm's TC statement, he told Dawn she would have his vote as long as she presented herself well, owned up to her strategy and didn't use the adopted 6 kids as a reason to vote for her.

    Looking back at that shot of the non-Jury members in the audience, I realized that other than Shemar (because of his drama) and Corrine (because I knew her from the past), I have no memory of who those other players even are, what their names are, or even their vote outs. So I guess it wasn't that big a deal anyway. But still, just having to be all icky in the jungle should warrant you at least a seat on the stage.

    I can't wait for Survivor: Hodgepodge, where they just throw every twist they've ever used into one season.

    (And I would totally watch it.)

    How come they never bring back the phantom tribe twist? *stomps foot*

    (ok, I know I was possibly the only person in the entire universe who kinda liked that twist....but come on, admit that it was better than either Exile or Redemption Island!!)

    The only twist I have remotely liked is from Cook Islands when they did the Mutiny. And the only reason I like it is cause what happened with Yul & Ozzy taking their little tribe all the way to the end. The rest of the twists Probst and company have come up with are pretty bad and not really added anything to the game.

    Not sure if I'll tune into Season 27 yet or not.

    Oh that. I'm not big on players (Survivor or BB) coming back into the game in any form, inc RI, ghost tribes, audience votes, you name it.

    I actually kind of liked it too - I do generally agree with Jenny that I don't like the concept of players coming back in the game, but the outcasts twist surprisingly turned out rather well IMO. Maybe it couldn't be repeated in that manner, but it was very interesting the way the players who came back into the game were able to worm their way into alliances and make it quite a bit further in the game. I also liked that it wasn't an automatic re-entry - the outcast tribe had to actually beat the other tribes to be able to vote anyone back in. The rest of the season played out with a lot of twists and turns and changes of power.

    Redemption Island, OTOH, was just completely pointless. Both people who re-entered the game were immediately voted off again afterward and so I'm not sure why they would think this was a twist worth repeating.

    I think that some other twists have worked well - tribal shakeups/switches are old hat now, but a massive shocker when first introduced in Season 3 and there are still many times when the tribal swap contributes to alliances changing and re-forming. The HII is also pretty old by now and while there are some seasons where it has no impact, some of the best tribal councils have come as a result of the HIIs, so I would say that on the whole, it has been a successful twist.

    It's used as a safety net for when the producer's favorites are voted out. It also completely hogs up a massive amount of airtime, and also eliminates all reward challenges -- boo.

    I'm re-watching a couple of the early seasons on DVD... the old school reward challenges were great. I miss the old Survivor.

    I don't remember what the phantom tribe twist was at all.

    I like the HII's (as long as the person keeps their mouth shut about having it!!) but they need to work a LOT harder at hiding them! Unless its all in the editing, it seems all someone has to do is spend a day looking in tree trunks and under rocks and "poof" oh look I found an Idol! I think it was the early days of the Idol or something, but remember that girl on Redemption Island (I think) and she literally dug a trench from the tree line to the ocean trying to find that thing? They need to make them win clues to find the HII's or something but at least make them difficult to find.
