Excuse me, Australian Survivor watchers, for not posting a new thread at the start of the viewing week but let’s get to the point: OMG what is with all the silly twists!
First, we see a voted-out Kez sneak her idol to Flick in a move that is usually illegal. Cue online outrage and then we have to leave it to a former player (thank you, Nick Iadanza) that this is a recent rule change and is now kosher. Whaaaat! Way to blindside the audience.
And then last night a challenge skewed to brawnier players is set up to win three immunity necklaces (I initially thought they would be girl/boy necklaces, as they sometimes do) and JLP says only those three people get a vote.
Then we get to tribal and – gotcha, audience – only one person gets to vote and they have to make fire to do so. Grrr.
Now, think what you like about Dani but it was satisfying to see her beat Andrew and Emmett, after her chances were completely dismissed by her tribe mates.
And THEN, after Baden is booted, he’s not actually gone but sent to some kind of Redemption Island scenario.
Channel 10, just let them play! We don’t need explosions every minute.
