Would it be possible for him to have say, Nicotene gum or a patch as a luxury item?

Regardless of why he is doing this, I'm certain that this one reason why they chose him to be on the show. The producers learn tons of info about the performers on the show except info about dead grandmothers, and probably talked to him about how he would not be able to smoke and he probably said he could handle it. Obviously, it makes for great tv watching a smoker suffer nicfits while viewers go "I know how he feels, poor guy"

The luxury items have actually featured in every season (according to Jeff Probst) but they just haven't been of interest to the storylines lately, so they don't bother showing them. I think Rob C with his magic 8 ball was the last time that we were even shown one.

Tribe mixup next episode is ok, but it's kind of unfair to do it when one tribe will have one more member than the other.......gives everyone in that larger tribe a slight advantage since they can rest a person in challenges and will know one more person than the other tribe. Granted, I do think we'll get another tribal switchup at one point, but the folks on the tribe of 8 will have a bit of leverage.

If we had started with 2 tribes, one would have an extra member at this point anyway.

^ Yeah, but that tribe would've earned it by having won the first IC. The next episode looks a lot like a random mixup according to the previews.

I still thing the worst offense was last season when Steph was basically handed a tribe lead at the switchup when she was put on Nakum which had an extra member.......definitely really gave her a big advantage. If her new tribe didn't have the numbers at merge, she could just try to guilt trip Gary into joining her side and all.........so, basically Brandon/Bobby Jon/Danni were in the worst position of anyone in the game, and Danni still managed to win. Good for her!

At least ....... this is what I say right now.

I think that I remember Mad Dog from Survivor Australia using the patch when she went on the show.

runs off to google... Ha ha! I found this chat transcript with Jerry

http://www.survivorfever.net/chat_s8_jerri.html
Quote:
Question: Are you or the other Survivors smokers? I imagine withdrawal would be horrendous
Jerri: I myself am not. However a really good story comes from my Australia experience and Mad Dog, who was a chain smoker and had to wear a patch in order to get by without nicotine. And I still to this day have a huge amount of respect for her because she never once let on that she missed her daily cigarettes. Never once did she get cranky.
So either they changed the rules and banned the patch, or they don't manufacture a patch large enough to cover this man's addiction. 3 packs a day!!!
