    So... Because I have nothing better to do... I am following Jeff Probst's Twitter. I'm having a really hard time following the #Survivor channel where he is answering questions though, it moves too fast. But I thought I'd copy/past anything I found interesting for you guys.

    Jeff's quotes:

    In response to what the girls offered to Rob at the Redemption Island challenge:
    We never expected or anticipated these moments when we created the RI Arena. It totally changes the dynamics of the game.
    A to Q - Matt sits on his ass most the day at RI. There is nothing to do! that's part of it - the boredom - surviving it
    Someone asked how bad the survivors smell:
    you can smell the fire on their clothes at challenges - REEK of smoke. Always the same smell.

    He really doesn't seem to like how much shit people are giving Phillip.
    Say what you want, Phillip is aware of what's going on.. and if people disregard he could really mess up their game at the end
    Come on tell the truth - you know you'd be up for dinner with Phillip - the dude is fascinating and so earnest
    don't underestimate Phillip... warning you... the guy could blow up and screw it all up. He's got a lion and a gorilla !!!


    It was very windy that night... and a storm brewing. TC can last 45- 90 minutes depending on the night.
    Holy shit... We see like 5 minutes out of 90?!

    David seems pretty smart. I hope they give him more air time.

    I remember reading (in an interview with Mark Burnett) that they have about 130 hours of footage per episode that is reduced to the 44 minutes we actually see. Probably 90% of that is pretty boring, but no doubt there's stuff that would be influential but doesn't fit into the narrative they weave.

    David seemed quite insecure about his "skillz" ... he has a hot button for sure, so we'll see if someone exploits that over time.

    Yeah. I'm sure most of the time sitting around the island is downtime. But the only reason to sit at Tribal Council for an hour is because there is actually discussion going on. I feel like it would be hard to splice that down to 5-10 minutes.

    1. The switcheroo BostonRob pulled was hillarious. He totally outgames the rest of his tribe. Lol.

    2. Interesting above info demostrating the nice editing of Tribal Counsel. I had no idea it lasted that long.

    3. The Ometepe tribe are starting to get sloppy. Sending the two "outsider" girls to watch the RI challenge was ignorant. Should have split them up.

    Wow. Yeah, it seems that the Ometepe tribe has gone downhill since Russell left. I don't really see them pulling out of it, unless there is a puzzle challenge and David beats Rob. I'm sad because now David has probably put himself on the outs with his tribe. I want to see him do well. Hopefully he's able to put his brain to use and can stick it out.

    Phillip is kinda getting better in my eyes, since now he's not being portrayed as weirdly and he does seem to know what's going on. I agree that if his tribe votes him out before those lazy girls, then that will be annoying. Phillip=ESTJ or ISTJ? He IS all about "duty".

    Yeah. Serves Ometepe right.

    It makes me a little sad that the survivors get to know who is on Redemption Island. How crazy would it be if the blond kid just walked back on and no one was expecting it? He got voted off, what, week 2? Do you guys think he could make it the whole way? I think he'll come back in at the merge.

    I still hate Phillip. But I agree that he does make the show more interesting. Kind of like a loose cannon and you don't know what he's going to do.

    ^ I think with the edit Matt is getting, he will. I do have a special love for dark horses ... so therefore am hoping Stephanie can beat him at RI next week. But with the edit Matt is getting, I doubt it.

    Although she is a total little weasel, I am kinda sad to see Stephanie gone. She was the only thing of interest with what now remains of her tribe.

    As to the other tribe the lazy "beauty queens" are getting on my nerves and I would like to see one of them voted off.

    Im kinda rooting for Agent Phill (funny how they put a question mark next to his job title when they interview him e.g. Phillip. Federal Agent? but I still find Rob to be the most entertaining to watch and listen to the candor of his game strategy.

    Currently watching the new episode, but the two do-nothings on Phillip's tribe are irritating me so much I have to vent here to my fellow lowbrow vermin. I would have lost my temper and put on my crazy-face if Ashley had talked that way to me, so I respect Phil for being able to keep his cool.

    And I wouldn't use David as my attorney even if he threw himself at my feet and offered to pay me.
