I've only watched two episodes this season (but read every thread) so I'm sure this list is incomplete, but to my mind the list of advantages to Daniel and SJ just gifted to them by producers is now in double figures.

Daniel
  1. The first eviction twist where he got immunity by going in the bunker and the sole vote to evict.
  2. Daniel being "ill" - immune for eviction with no consequences.
  3. The Panic Room twist - we know he was ordered to go in last and had a power which would have prevented him being evicted.
  4. HoH - I highly doubt SJ came to the decision alone to choose Daniel, and now as a result he gets immunity...
  5. ... not once, but twice. And wouldn't surprise me if it's tomorrow as well.
SJ
  1. Fake evicted...
  2. ... and then immune from the next eviction
  3. Fake evicted...
  4. ... and then immune from the next eviction
  5. ... and the next.
That's ten advantages all handed to them by producers rather than earned. They've basically had as many advantages as the intruders who went in at the half way point - but without the disadvantage of not being there from the start.


Really is an insult to not just the viewers but the other housemates as well.

Why would any normal person want to audition for the show if the producers will show clear favouritism?

There’s a lot of assumptions you make there.
You are insinuating he wasn’t ill. You don’t know that.
How do you know he was told to go to the panic room last?
And you don’t know that SJ was told to take Daniel.
You don’t know that SJ’s advantages wouldn’t have gone to anyone else evicted those nights.

You can make it look a lot worse by just insinuating a whole heap of things you simply don’t actually know. Ha

There is enough evidence within the show alone for the entire integrity of the show to be questioned. And if it was one incident I think you'd have a point - but it's not - it is multiple incidents where the same individuals have got an advantage.

It's a flaw with this format. They need a way to signpost the twists ahead of time of them occurring in the show. Which I don't know how they do in a pre-recorded format.

There still is a lot of random chance. No need to assume everything is scripted.

They should just advertise - "Watch how this year we green light 2 people to the top 3 and burn the rest, it's so entertaining. This is the new BB format in the 2020's".. At least it wouldn't be as insulting as "YOU DECIDE" :rolleyes:

People keep saying there's a lot of love for Danny, but in the early stages of this poll, he's being outvoted by Tully Tilly.

Yeah, he talks about it on a podcast with Tully. iirc it was something like being asked through a friend of a friend of the producers, and they were looking for people about two weeks before he went into the house.
So maybe they cast him even after the show started filming? Interesting.

It’s not a flaw with the format or with flaw with the show being pre-recorded. We don’t question the integrity of twists within the Survivor format the same way we do with BB. The simple fact is this all boils down to integrity.

I agree with you on all the others but i think Daniel number two was a sensible covid safety precaution.
