Does anyone here (other than Spanosa, I KNOW you watch Survivor/BB) watch any reality TV?

Don't even get me started on Redemption Island........ lol I wasn't a fan that Boston Rob won because it was just so predictable from pretty much the very beginning of the game that it was his, and it took him 4 tries to do it. The only satisfying thing I think I gleaned from this season was watching Russell whine and cry when he was finally eliminated from the game Twisted Evil

True, what pissed me off the most about his win I guess was the fact that no one ever even CONSIDERED taking him out because they were so damn starstruck by him and legitimately thought he'd take them to the end with him, making every single boot from F6 effectively a "blindside." And why did Ralph never use his idol? :X

Ralph is just a silly farmer, he don't know about no idols! Also, why did he vote off Grant???? Grant is boss.

Ah man, I haven't watched Survivor in forever lol. I used to really love it though.

As for reality shows that I watch lately... well, I do tend to keep up with Dancing with the Stars. It's a pretty fun show to watch Very Happy

In terms of Ralph's idol, I'm wondering if it was just slick editing, use it as a plot driver while Russell, "King of Idols" is still around, maybe he'd played it when no one voted for him and no one found another idol on Zapatera afterwards so they didn't feel the need to explain that there wasn't one in play anymore... i don't know, just seems kind of odd to me.

I think the flushed it out awhile ago. I can't remember, Ralph wasn't that major of a player.

Yeah, the reason I found it odd was because on wikipedia there was no mention that Ralph used the immunity idol, because it would've been noted somewhere that he had played it even if there were no votes cast against him.

Was he the last Zapateria to go? If he wasn't it would've just pissed the others off.

He wasn't. He and Steve technically went in the same TC because of that damn "memorize the symbols" challenge, but he went before Steve.

Well then wouldn't using it just annoy Steve? Well, since they went at the same tribal council is could've done some strange magic and saved him for a moment. I honestly think the producers pull some magic though, he found it far too easily. "Lemme just move some random rocks and... OH HEY IDOL!"

Let's be honest, the producers would only let that happen to Russell LOL

He found 5 idols over the course of 2 seasons. Ridiculous.

Respect the made skills/intense luck/producer set-up! I do think it is the third though, I mean it is ridiculous to find that many with no clues.

It was definitely the third one. Russell is their poster child and it's obnoxious.

He does get a little tiring after a little while. I am excited for the next season though, the Redemption Island idea is a lot better then the previous Exile Island. I think it adds far more strategy to the game.

I would probably be a fan of it a) if it weren't exactly like Real World/Road Rules Challenge, and b) if the person who returns just gets voted out right away, thus burning an entire episode.

Oh, and c) if they did it the way the international versions did it in the past: tell them that it exists and nothing more, just have the person return without the knowledge of who it'll be.

I really would have liked to have seen that. It would have made it so that no one knows who's even on the island anymore, and who has the chances of coming back. Having everyone know sort of defeats the purpose in a way.
