  1. Just wanted to log my discontent at Survivor (whose numbers seem to be sliding again) for advertising which tribe lost the immunity challenge and had to go to a tribal vote the night before the show aired. Talk about undercutting your own ‘build the suspense’ angle. And I still say they are manipulating outcomes with idols etc. Cameraman pans down to where idol is next to log; Harry passes by, walks back and ‘finds’ it. Suspicious.

    1. Haha yes I was wondering the same thing that it’s always where the camera man is panning to, and always at the camp of the tribe that needs it, was there the same hidden advantage at the other camp as well? I’d imagine not.
