Plus, they've never hidden them in challenges in Survivor history, so literally nobody is going to figure out just what the hell is going on or question if she walks away for two seconds. It's not going to become an issue until more clues/idols are found and people are in on it or the challenge team starts tossing them in places so blatantly obvious that it can't be ignored.

Also, they're going to have all sorts of different idols this year including ones that look like they were made by a five-year old kid. This is to throw everyone off and to allow people to make fake ones. If the real idols now look "fake" then it will be a lot easier to pass off a fake one as real.

I don't know. This week was kind of a ho hum episode. All the pointless drama with Abi-normal is already getting lame. Terry made the right move to actually pretend to give a shit about her. Now he's got her in his back pocket. After all the drama she had with Shirin, it was interesting to see who she actually voted for. Next week looks way more entertaining.

Best part was when Woo shot Shirin and Spencer down, "Absolutely not". Love seeing someone just be straight forward.

And of course the other team could only win the Immunity Challenge when they got mental midget Kass off of the puzzle. She was part of the brains tribe last time but couldn't do a puzzle to save her life, but she still insists on claiming she'd be the best at it obviously.

Right, they're barely showing the "other tribe". They're too busy winning challenges. Or making Fish look like a goof, which isn't too difficult.

Well, in Kass's defense, she kicked ass at the final four immunity back in her season where she spent forever in the water and then totally dominated the puzzle. She also nearly beat Woo in the puzzle in the final immunity challenge. She's a smart woman.

Going from two tribes to three tribes is brilliant and something I always hoped they would do. It's clearly going to allow Fishbach and Spencer to reset their games. Spencer has been edited from the first moment as this season's power player and it's unfortunate that his boring ass is going to be allowed that as he surely would have gone next on his original tribe. Fishbach is going to slice the throats of the alpha males that were worried about him, obviously.

I'm absolutely loving this season as the strategy is going at a million miles an hour and there's a ton of great character moments. Jeff Varner and Abi-Maria are television gold, Savage and Jeremy had some intimate moments to share, Stephen is a total wreck out there. A lot of fun to watch.

It's clear from the edit though that certain players make almost no impression over the course of the season, albeit as characters or strategically. They ignored about a third of the cast in the premiere (I reckon about a dozen players had a flashback intro to their previous season while the rest did not). I don't think we've heard a peep yet from Monica, for example, and I imagine she'll get tossed for being physically useless once the tribes become six person teams.

Again, all played up for their storyline where Fishbach will start taking names on the new tribes next week. Even if some of the alphas are wary of the guy, they're not going to want to lose a male from a tribe with only six people on it...unfortunately for them, Fishbach will have no problem working with members from the opposite original tribe to cut out people like Savage, Jeremy and Joe. If I had to gamble, it would be Joe given the moment in the last episode where Fishbach labels him as the golden boy of Survivor.

I looked it up...there were eight people that didn't get a proper "redemption" intro in the premiere. Two of them are already out of the game, so yeah, they unfortunately made it obvious that some people have no shot at winning.

The eight:

 
Keith, Monica, Peih-Gee, Shirin, Stephen, Terry, Vytas, Woo

Well, they can split them up into 3 tribes, but Fish doesn't really stand a chance. Right now, his social game is for shit and he just looks like a goofball. Eventually, they'll all be merged into one anyway, so it won't really matter. But, like Abi-normal, Fish could be used as someone's pawn. Out of the 8 that you listed, Terry is easily the best. Hell, they've barely shown Monica. One thing I enjoy about the show, is that often the winner is a wild card in the beginning. Last season, Mike was so out there, it looked impossible for him to win. Especially after the move he made at the auction. Then before that it was Tony who was constantly lying, but somehow managed a decent strategy. If Abi-normal keeps her shit together, she might be able to last a while in this game because people know she's a loose canon. But, if she has an all out Brandon Hantz moment, she is gone. Either that or she'll quit.

Dammit Abi slides through again. She is so ridiculous.

Usually when players dont get a lot of early air time doesn't it mean they do well later on or even end up in the finals?

There isn't necessarily a correlation except that the winner rarely is outright ignored in a lot of episodes. I really don't see the winner being one of those eight people because I think they would have wanted to hype their second chance storyline in the premiere (and it's no coincidence that two of those people were the first two out). The editors ignored, say, Monica because she has no real affect on the actual season.

I don't think Stephen's dead in the water, but I do think his game is going to be a glorious flame out that he alluded to. When they cut down to 6-person tribes, let's say there's a 3-to-3 split between members of the initial tribes. Stephen jumps ship to make it 4-2 and in the process slits the throat of one of the alpha males...I don't see it happening the other way around because someone like Jeremy is more likely to want to take out one of the women in order to keep their tribe strong while Stephen is more about jockeying for a better position.

Abi-Maria making the merge is going to have required the luckiest set of circumstances in all 31 seasons of Survivor. Knowing that the three tribe thing will only hold for maybe four rounds at most will probably lead to a lot of power players picking each other off and not worrying about keeping the tribe strong since they know they'll be back to two random tribes real soon (and why not boost your odds of having more power on one of those two new tribes?). Therefore, it would not surprise me at all if Abi-Maria was used as a vote and actually made the merge which is pretty astonishing.

The warpath of Abi-normal continues. She is tribal poison. And good gravy, Jeff Varner is a putz.

That's exactly why you keep her. Because she is the worst. She won't win the game, but she can sabotage every threat along the way. If she doesn't have a Brandon Hantz moment during the course of the show, I'd be disappointed. And good Lord, Woo is doing the same thing he did last time. Clueless until the end. If their tribe loses again, he's next to go.
