Great first episode, so much going on, Matt.........you fool!
Fantastic discussion, from everyone!

I think he must have. He called Jonathan "Jeff" after all.Oh, the irony of having been nicknamed Sneaky Steve when you should have just been called Stupid Steve. He's out next. I would bet real moola that he's never watched Survivor, because he's literally so clueless.
It's easy to think that.I'm actually liking Russell so far. At least he PLAYS. But that idol was placed there for him to find, let's face it.
If he calls him Probst, La Pags should rightfully get up and bitch slap him. JLP subtle shade is one of the best things about AU Survivor. Crosses fingers he rips up Russell in the most Aussie way possible.I think he must have. He called Jonathan "Jeff" after all.
...I remembered the background of the challenge from the Ad and his reaction to an obvious win of some sort and when he was the main star of the team at that point I kind of knew Meglos... but as I said to Timmy... I thought that the 'winning scene' was pure misdirection to throw us off and that's why I picked the Contenders to win it lol!... I can thank the producers of Masterchef for conditioning me be misled like that... the show has finished yet their tendrils are STILL within my mind!... bastards!... lol!... cheers.For me, I didn't assume that the promo with Damien celebrating a win was from the first episode. But I was wrong obviously.
Jeff Probst is the Survivor presenter archetype, I think all others are influenced by him.Steve called JLP, Jeff!
There may have been an attempt to bluff they were still going for Steve. The vote did turn out split though, so Matt caused a bit of chaos if nothing else. But thinking about it the vote may well have been planned like this, a split vote in case one of them had an idol."Sticking to the plan" will probably turn to backstabbing.. They just don't want him to use any idol.
The contenders tribe looks more interesting so far, though Matt went he at least got them thinking beyond Steve. In going he even said if he went he wished Steve luck.Haven't read the verdict here yet, but I thought that was pretty good. Better than I expected, and it should play out in interesting ways.
Matt was a typical overplaying first boot, though I think Steve is pretty clueless and will follow soon after. "Jeff"???
Russell Hantz is all piss and wind, and he will also fizzle out soon. Gotta laugh at him dissing Natalie White, He carries a pretty young girl to the end, and how does that work out for you Russell? Oh that's right, they beat you. And you don't even have to be a social genius like Parvati, you just have to NOT be Russell Hantz.
It's the evolution of Survivor.I don't remember anyone being so obvious about their idol search in the previous seasons as Matt and Steve have been.
I agree. I saw someone make the same observation elsewhere (Whirlpool? Can't remember). Worth considering. Or you could completely disregard that as a misdirection. Haha.I doubt many of them are true Survivor fans, and probably only have the slightest notion of how Hantz operates.
The Contenders, on the other hand, are likely to be more aware, and I predict that all of the interesting gameplay will come from them.
Ha. The only other opinions I can bear to read are on here. I did join a facebook Survivor group but I have never posted in it and can't get on board with any of their opinions.I agree. I saw someone make the same observation elsewhere (Whirlpool? Can't remember). Worth considering. Or you could completely disregard that as a misdirection. Haha.
