    S12. E05. The Art Stands Alone

    Remember back to episode 1 when Pon asked the girls if they would like to come and help clean up, fast forward to this week and he is saying that these are 7 of the most talented women he has ever met. The editing is weird on this show.

    Who would you have picked? Pon (was safe) Creepy Jason Cam Jake Fon Tito (already chosen) Maybe Creepy Jason but he has put up some solid tattoos. Cam, Jake and Fon are 3 of the strongest artists in the house imo. I think Ash might have been a good pick.

    S12. E04. The Hunter and the Hunted.

    I was baffled by the decision of Justin going home, I thought he clearly had the best tattoo out of the three, but then Dave said "Congratulations DJ you will be tattooing in the finale" and then it all made sense,

    S12. E03. Down to the Wire.

    It does seem like a safety net just in case the contestants were boring to have returning players to talk to camera. I thought the standard of the tattoos improved from last week, not much else to say.

    S12. E02. A Storm Is Brewin'

    Not much to say about that episode other than the standard doesn't seem to be very high so far. So if they are bringing back past contestants as captains, are they going to have enough females? Off the top of my head I can think of 6 who I think deserve it but then I think it will just be well she made it half way through the competition.

    S38:E14 I See the Million Dollars

    Rick was the biggest threat in the game, while he did have the most votes, so the idol would have been played "correctly", it was a bad move because she would be saving the biggest threat in the game. To me it doesn't really change the Rick narrative as Rick would just revealed at the next tribal council that he had an HII, he could have saved himself but is able to use it now. It would change the Lauren narrative as she made a confusing move to save the biggest threat in the game. If she had saved it and played it on herself at final 5 she would have played it correctly and made final 4.

    S38:E14 I See the Million Dollars

    After Rick got voted out I didn't really care that much who won as the remaining 3 were all pretty uninspiring. But hats off to Chris, he had a much better final tribal that the other 2. Gavin and Julie really need to listen to the question and think about what what would impress the jury. What big moves did you play? Gavin: I formed relationships Julie: I was emontional The jury hears - we both did nothing Why do you think you should win? Gavin: I am not playing the game for you guys, I am playing it for my family. Julie: I know I didn't make aggressive moves like you guys but why does that mean I can't win? The jury hears - seriously we both did nothing.

    S38.E13 Idol or Bust

    EoE seems to be generally agreed to be a terrible concept, I just thought of an idea that could have made it a little more interesting. I am not sure if it is a good idea or not but thought I would share it. When you are voted to EoE you then have to nominate someone still in the game. Your fate is then tied to that person, and if the nominated person is voted to EoE, you are then sent home/put on the jury (depending on what stage of the game they are at). I just thought it could be interesting to see another level of strategy and who people pick to tie their fate too, it would also probably mean that you wouldn't have so many people on EoE as some would actually get eliminated.

    S38.E13 Idol or Bust

    At the immunity challenge when Victoria said to Jeff, "I'm playing too Jeff", I thought to myself, that is a perfect description of the edit you are getting. Because she has been on the right side of every vote means she is involved in the decision making is one interpretation of what might be happening. Others could be: - she has little influence over the vote but is very perceptive and votes with the majority to try and not be on the outs - she just votes for whoever the majority tells her to. Victoria and Lauren could be doing far more than we are seeing, or they could be doing very little which would explain why they have never been on the chopping block because they are not seen as threats.

    S38.E13 Idol or Bust

    I am not totally sold that there is some conspiracy that gifts idols to certain players, but I totally agree with you that the way they rehide the idol right after tribal is ruining the game. To me the HII should be rare so that when it is pulled out it is a substantial event that can change the course of the game, not a crutch that a players pulls it out tribal after tribal to get them self to the end. There is a large element of luck in finding a HII, for something so powerful I think maybe there should be some cost or risk associated with it.

    S38.E13 Idol or Bust

    Rick is creating quite the survivor resume for himself, at the expense of everyone else as their resumes are looking very bare. If Rick gets voted out and a nobody returns from EoE it will pretty much be an even playing field.

    S38.E12 Awkward

    I am a little interested to see how EoE affects the jury. Normally when they go to ponderosa the might stew for a day or 2 but then they get a little closure and most of the time aren't a bitter jury. The fact that any of them could get back into the game there is no closure. All the exiles can really do is sit around and stew on how they got voted out. It will be interesting to see if that affects how the jury will vote in any way.

    S38.E12 Awkward

    I totally agree with you that there is a difference between big moves and smart moves. To me a big move is risky and impactful and not necessarily smart. I also agree that I would prefer the winner to have made smart moves throughout the game and if they did then I wouldn't call them a goat. You ask if taking out Wardog was a big move, since it was unanimous then no it isn't as the credit gets split between everyone and there is very little risk in the move. Same with the split vote to take out Ron, the majority of the tribe all had the same idea and there was little risk, so it isn't really a big move. Remember the vote to take out Eric? Julia and Gavin came up with the plan via information by Wardog, Victoria was against the plan as she thought it was too early to turn on their own alliance (which I agree with), but didn't have the influence to stop the plan going ahead. Can you tell me anything she has done between the Eric vote and the Ron vote? I call them goats because they have pretty much sat under the radar, watched as the big targets got taken out and now suddenly find themselves in the majority.

    S38.E12 Awkward

    Most of the players left seem like goats. Everyone who has had the guts to organise a big move has been voted out. Lauren mainly just rode Wardog and Kelley's coat tails Victoria seems really smart but doesn't appear to have much influence Gavin just seems to do what he is told same with Julie Aurora lacks the social skills to be subtle and I don't think could convince people to follow her.
