The challenges are very physical this season, Steve was just telling the truth at tribal. And as said earlier on in the thread him forming an alliance early on is what you are supposed to do on Survivor.It amazes me how compared to last year, how many more people on the champions tribe year are from sporting backgrounds compared to last year, and just how poorly this tribe is doing in immunity challenges. I'm hoping the people like ET, Simon and Bradbury are voted out. I'm sick of this self entitled sporting stars thinking survivor is purely based of challenges and being the physical alpha player.
I think Luke would have liked an early alliance if he'd been in it. Steve could have had more social nous, but at the same time I haven't seen someone on Survivor react how Abbey did. On Big Brother sure, but on the US Survivor I don't remember someone going off crying just because someone said their strategy was weak. David actually looks far more controlling than Steve was, Steve's strategy was to let ET take the lead. After the two blindsiding him he should have thought more carefully about his next move rather than complaining.Whilst Steve's strategy to form an alliance early might have been sound, the problem was that he didn't have the personality or the social nous to make it work properly. Plus he was a on tribe with Luke and Ross, both who would bristle against that type of survivor play making.
I always believe that you need a certain type of personality to win survivor, and Steve definitely did not have that. Still, that doesn't make him to be a bad person or whatever.
Ok, someone correct me if I am wrong.I am a little confused with this Janine/Shaun/David Idol situation. So my understanding is Shaun was given the fake idol, David has Janine's idol and Shauns idol was given to Janine by David, so that he can have the offical champions idol? But does this mean Janine's idol cannot be used by her as it can only be played by a contender? Or does David have the contender idol and does Janine have the proper idol. I am very much confused and I think I missed something in last nights episode?
Thats how I initially thought of it as well. A bit confusing for my liking but still an interesting twist. Annoying though because I like Shaun and Janine, however well played by David.Ok, someone correct me if I am wrong.
Janine still has the Contenders idol. She can't use it. Only a Contender can use it. She could only use it if there was a tribe swap and she became a Contender.
David made a fake idol. He gave the fake idol to Shuan who gave David the Champions idol.
So Shaun has the fake idol. David has the Champions idol and Janine has the Contenders idol
And to add the icing to the cake if Shaun then plays his fake idol for David and David went home that would be television gold!Would be pretty funny though if a tribe swap occurs soon and David and Janine both become contenders. Would be a massive slap in the face to him.
