    Watching this season for the first time, and in episode 3 they did something I haven't seen before that I found interesting (I haven't seen all seasons so maybe they did something similar in another season). Both tribes went to tribal; the first part of the challenge was for reward, and the winning team got to compete for individual immunity in the second part. Then the immunity winner (John) spent the day with the other tribe and was required to pass the immunity necklace on to one of the women after his tribal was done. With so many idols in play these days, doing something like that maybe wouldn't be as interesting, but he was really smart both in getting a lot of information on the dynamics of the women's' tribe *and* how he decided who to give immunity to (picking Ami because he knew she was safe, which should have pissed off nobody, we'll see next episode.)

    Yeah, I should have noted that I left the text as he had written it, clearly missing a comma! I'm pedantic enough that I couldn't bring myself to fix it since I was putting it in quotes :)

    S37.E13: Finale

    Not really sure where to put this since it really encompasses the whole season, but since David said a prayer during final council voting I think it works here. I thought it was really nice to see a couple of religious people portrayed in such a positive way on the show this season. Both Davie and Nick were shown quietly saying prayers of gratitude during the season, and back in episode 1 Nick clearly was familiar with the story of David vs. Goliath from the Bible (I would guess many people don't realize that David from this story is the same person as King David.) I'm not religious myself (raised in a Christian church though, so I know my Bible), but I have religious friends that I respect, and most of them are in the vein of how these two were shown - quiet, grateful, humble faith.

    My thought exactly when i read it, but I thought I should post it the way that he wrote it!!

    Yep, and it is a way to get girls interested in governing at a young age, which both gives them confidence and teaches them new skills in the short term, and will also likely contribute to more women running for office in the long term. Lots of charities sprung up after the 2016 election to encourage women to run for office and help them learn how to do so effectively. I don’t see anything negative about charities that help girls develop these interests and learn these skills at a younger age.

    S37.E14: David vs Goliath Reunion

    Yep, it did happen! I did read a post (in her thread, I think) that mentioned something about her admitting she’d change up a few things if she came back. I remember when she made that comment it was pretty clear to me she meant “more than a few” by her tone of voice and facial expression.

    She talks about it in her Ponderosa - one thing she said was she was using the wrong side of the knife a good part of the time. But getting the cursed orange seat couldn’t have helped...

    Great season and great winner! This season’s creative editing pulled through all the way to the end - in prior seasons I think they would have shown 3 votes as they were made for both Nick and Mike, so when they showed only 1 each I figured Nick got the rest. So my heart stopped for a minute when the second Mike vote came up. Got me, editors! That is the first time I can remember the jury applauding the finalists at the end of final tribal council, but I haven’t seen every season. This cast was so great. Last thought: they took a real risk with this theme - I think it could have been a tough narrative to sell had the Goliaths dominated everything and a Goliath won. Glad they took the chance because it made for a great season!!!

    S37:E14 David vs Goliath Reunion LIVE CHAT

    Thanks, I hadn’t heard that! I thought it might be due to how salty he was in his exit press...

    It looks like Jeremy isn’t at the reunion either. I’m not surprised, but I had not heard he wouldn’t be there. I knew Alex wouldn’t.

    S37:E11 So Smart They're Dumb

    Support in a situation that is extremely difficult? Strategy to get him to care for you within the context of the game so that he has your back? Actual friendship? One of my best friends is a married man and I am a married woman. We care deeply for each other and have zero romantic interest. Men and women can be friends and care for each other without it being romantic.

    For me it is funny to see the kitten grow up into a cat - I have always used/heard kittywumpus :)

    Josh Wigler talked about them on Rob Has a Podcast. Sounds like it is something he has wanted to do for a while and the show agreed to try it this season. He is calling them his Active Player interviews. I like them as well - it is fun to get some context and feedback from the different players right as things are happening in the show, rather than waiting until it is over.
