I can’t be the only one watching, anyone else?

what did you make of tonight’s episode? Not sure what to think about it all. Was it as bad as they were saying or was it gameplay?

I am watching but not up to date - I didn’t see last week or tonight. I did see 5 mins of tonight’s tribal though when Janet was saying she was thinking of leaving, and then that guy started saying he was all me too. Super curious to see what it was all about!!

Otherwise really enjoying it. Love Boston Rob!

I’m watching... always watching survivor!!!

I didn’t like what happened on the first of Thursday’s episodes. Those women said they were uncomfortable and didn’t like having him around camp. Janet did what she thought was morally right and stood up for them. She was made to look like the bad guy and I’m glad she called them out on it.

I feel the worst part is Elizabeth lying about it though, just to keep someone in the dark on the vote. Not cool!!

IF IN DOUBT, PLAY YOUR IDOL, even just a little, do it...

Haven’t watched the second ep yet.

I agree, they took a serious issue and then used it strategically as part of the game. Now it looks like they were either a)making it up or b) blowing it out of proportion but I do think he was a bit too touchy feely with them. They should have just stood by their word and voted him out.

First time we have ever seen anything like this on survivor though, never seen a contestant get a warning before.

other than that I am finding the Idol Island concept interesting. It is funny watching Rob and Sandra listen to tribal councils.

Some of the women were complaining about Dan being too touchy/feely right in the beginning and I believe them and I like that production stepped in, Kellee was really upset I believe.  But some of the women then using that for strategy was totally wrong imo and stepped over a line from gameplay into ruining a man's reputation and damaging the me too movement through lies for personal gain, I didn't like that at all.  And Janet got shafted - not cool.

I can't believe that Kellee left with 2 idols in her pocket.

I've been watching, and I was pretty angry when I watched it.  They started well, dealing with the issue but then allowed her feelings to be totally minimised, and let him have a say while Kellee couldn't say anything as part of the jury.  The women who lied are vile, and also minimised her experiences.  Dan obviously thinks he has every right to touch women and they should just accept it.  I bet he wouldn't try that with a man.

I made the mistake of reading the reviews of both shows before watching, and now I think I would get too angry to watch it through. As PP said, first time such a serious issue has been tangled up in game play, and so bad that the victim and then the person who stood up for her were voted out. Such a parallel with real life really. Definitely don’t want Missy or Elizabeth to win now.

Very glad that Missy and Elizabeth are gone.  

I'm not a fan of Karishma, but she played that idol perfectly.

Yes he should have been taken out much earlier.

So he did something 'inappropriate' with a production member or assistant and was sent home, but when he did it with a contestant on camera, he wasn't?  how ****ed....

Yep, this whole season is pretty tainted. Even winning will be overshadowed by Dan. Apparently it’s the first time the reunion won’t be live, so they can manage what people say.

What an underwhelming ending.

I think Kellee will get another season, they kind of owe it to her.  Elaine and Janet will make another reappearance as well in future seasons.

I agree, didn’t like any of them in the end.

i wonder wether Kellee will want to come back, she still seemed upset by it all - and very justified in feeling that way.

next season looks very promising though
