  • I'm loving our Exile Island Duo!!! Great episode!

    10
    So Jalapao is able to continue its winning streak here! I loved having separate Reward/Immunity Challenges, unlike the previous episode, as I fell that it adds more suspense and is more enjoyable to watch!



    Brenadan and Taj are becoming my favourites, closely followed by J.T. and Sierra. Those two on Exile hav e set up a great crooss-tribal alliance, which could potentially dominate the game post-merge! If they all make it there, taht is!



    Meanwhile, I was sad to see Jerry fgo home! He seemed like a really great guy, but if you get sick, the tribe gets rid of you unfortunately, and tht was his fate tonight. Coach is a n interesting character, and Tyson seems evil, so thigns are probably more interesting on Timbira at the moment!



    Can't wait for the next episode!!!moreless
  • Timbira loses and votes out Jerry.

    8.0
    This episode was a good episode but I was disappointed that Jerry got voted out even though it was in their best interests to vote him out and make the tribe stronger. This is where the exile alliance is formed and Brendan finds the idol outside the tree mail. Timbira lost both the reward and immunity challenges and were forced to vote out teir second member. Even though Coach wanted to vote out Erinn for aligning with Candace Jerry was voted out because he was too sick to contribute to the tribe. The episode was interesting because of the formation of tan exile alliance which has never happened before.moreless
  • Exile Island = Show Saver?

    9.0
    I was talking with a friend of mine about the 18th season of survivor and we started talking about the show and how it has been able to stay around for so long. I think Exile Island being added into the show and being around for more then just the "Exile Island" season was the best thing that could have ever done for the show. I'm very pumped up about the new rules of Exile Island. I assume that you can always jump tribes they just didn't bring it up in this episode because it was the same two people. Exile Island is the best portion of the episode for me, whereas in the earlier seasons it was more about the challeneges.



    This epsiode was good, still not up to 9.5 level but I can see it getting there very soon. Two challeneges, both were very good. The Red team is dominant right now. I thought the Black team was better after the first epsiode of this season, but they are outmatched in every aspect of this game. I fully expect the Red team to continue to make a run and put this game out of reach. I was surprised when the firts two votes came out for Jerry, but then I thought that they might do a little comeback action when Erin got a vote. Then Jerry got voted out and I was like - what? Didn't see that coming? I'm thinking he got a little blindsided or some people just changed there minds. Can't be sure. Either way - good episode.moreless
  • Really good episode!

    8.5
    Brendan and Taj are really, coming off as two strong players, in the game. The two went and got into Exile Island for the second time, in a row. While Taj's team won as they are, on the fast track. But the reward and the immunity challenge. At times, Tyson makes all-time villian on reality tv. Jonny Fairplay look, like a cakewalk. But at times, he does, have a soul. Unlike Fairplay, who didn't. Coach is coming off, as he just talks the talk. But not walk, the walk. You have to walk the walk, most of all. Pretty good season so far. Can't wait for next week. Taj who we thought, would be a goner due to. Her husband being, an NFL player. Really is proving, her worth.moreless
  • Jalapaoian comeback!

    8.0
    Jalapao is shaping up to a VERY good tribe, but they aren't great. Get rid of Sandy, they are a GREAT tribe, as for now, VERY good. Taj and Brendan are stirring everything up with their 4 way alliance... just how the game should be played, Taj, Brendan, Sierra, and Stephen, the "Fantastic Four" for the season, if this works, it's going to be awesome. Sad to see one of the only nice people on Timbira to leave... at least Coach thought of something RIGHT this time (by that, meaning trying to get rid of Erinn), I really hope Erinn gets out soon... I want Jalapao to lose the next one to get rid of dead weight Sandy! Only time will tell, though... Tyson is playing the best game in Timbira, he's going to be interesting at this point... too many events to recap in this one review sectionmoreless
