This was like a fear factor gross out show tonight. 😬

Joel and the fly, Keith and his stomach, fish man Mark and his sleeping bag accident. I will never eat during this show. 🤢 Roland continues to not crack a smile during the after show. 

Wondering if Keith’s stomach issues were because of the squirrel being bad or undercooked?

Sleeping bag accident? I don’t remember that.

Did Keith tell what caused him to be sick on the after-show?

I kept yelling at Joel to pour water in his ear!

Note to self....squirrel is not the other white meat....

Karma biting Keith in the ass for faking the tap....buh bye

Keith’s Room Rater 3/10...2 traps, horn and pelt.

Anyone else notice he resembled Robin Williams?

Mark hope Frebreeze was one of your 10 items...eeewww
Too much fat in his diet causing poo to gush from his rectum....Guess too much of a good thing can backfire (pun intended)

Callie, wish your shelter was closer to water and more sturdy. Hazard trek come ice and snow.

Nice coil and pinch pots.

Roland cracked a smile over his 2 fish.

Colby Is blurry.

I loved that too. The best way to hunt a rabbit is to act like a cow.

I hope that fly surfed out. I’m weirded out to think he might still have a drowned fly in his ear quietly rotting away. *shudder*

Poor Mark, imagine having to do an emergency sleeping bag cleaning in the cold in the middle of the night with a bad stomach. That would be THE WORST.

I thought Keith looked like Robert Englund, who is best known for playing Freddy Krueger. 
I sorta knew he was not going to last long. He just did not seem to be making good use of his precious time before everything freezes over. Did he only catch one squirrel in 22 days?

I loved Callie’s joy over catching that rabbit.  

Then they cut to Joel with TWO rabbits.  And he plays all the parts!  😄  too bad he didn’t re-enact the role of the fly.

Doesn’t surprise me that Keith tapped out.  He caught one measly squirrel, while the others are catching fish, rabbits.

Nice fish Roland!  Crappy net, but nice catch.

I’m wondering if we are going to see Mark kill that bear he’s hunting. It seems like he’s doing great so far, other than his bowel issues from eating too much fish. He’s got plenty of food, and a good shelter. I think he’s thriving so far overall.

Also I did not need to see Keith puke like that. Too much! I’m not surprised he tapped. He barely ate, and when he finally caught and ate a squirrel, he got horribly sick. I don’t think he needs to be ashamed though. He tried. 

I like Joel quite a bit with his rabbit hunting reenactment scene. That was pretty funny and even educational, not that I’ll ever be hunting rabbits. I cringed through that whole fly scene. 

I suppose Callie is entertaining, and I’m glad she’s having some fun thus far, but I don’t see how she makes it 100 days. We learned from Wonida last season that you can’t survive on rabbits alone. She needs fish. 

Roland is too grumpy for me, both on and off the island. He just isn’t having any fun at all. Tonight he mocked contestants who make little crafts to amuse themselves. He finally caught two fish, but he’s way behind folks like Joel and Mark in the hunt for enough food to last through winter. He’s going to need a lot more fish.

I wonder whether he tried using his camera to confirm it was gone.  Turn on the video and start manipulating your ear to see if he could get ANY kind of a shot down there.

I just kept thinking of Chekov in Star Trek, where the villains put some creature in his ear to eat its way to his brain and then lay eggs.

Maybe you should already do the number of days before you give yourself the tattoo. It was almost like giving himself 25 dots guaranteed that he would not make it 25 days. At least he did not ink Season 7 winner.

This season has been more gross than usual. The show usually does a good job bypassing some of the nastier aspects of survival.

If I were a contestant, I would just be amazed that I was less than 80 days away from a million dollars, tax free, since the show pays the taxes. It is a life changing amount of money.

I am still a little foggy on the rules of this season. If no one makes it 100 days...does that mean no one gets the money?

For those of you avoiding the Colby Blinding Teeth Review, he had Keith explain what they are required to carry when they leave camp... the camera equipment, safety kit backpack, cross body purse holding their sat phone and yellow locator transponder...

Sorry, but not sorry Whiner Keith but Jordan managed to bag a moose last season by carrying all that gear, all you managed to do was snare a tainted squirrel that you boiled and roasted into your Million Dollar Mistake.

I cringed all the way through Joel's bit with the bug in his ear.  When my son was a young man, a bug with pincers flew into his ear and started stabbing at his ear drum trying to get out.  He ended up having to go to the ER.  Even now, after 4 years in the Marine Corps and 20 years as a sheriff's deputy, he still says that was the worst thing that ever happened to him.  I really like Joel so I was very relieved he didn't have to tap out.  

Poor Mark.  I can't imagine how he cleaned up after such an awful incident with no detergent and only icy water to work with.  Discussing that on TV must have been embarrassing.

Callie seems to have knowledge and skills but she's maybe a bit flaky.  I was impressed with her pottery making.

Can't really say I enjoyed watching that episode.  Between the getting sick stuff, the poor animals getting killed, watching them remove the guts, and aggh that fly, this show wasn't exactly pleasant.

I did think Keith's line about scraping black stuff off a rock and calling it dinner was kind of funny, can't remember what he said exactly.  Makes you feel for George Washington's troops at Valley Forge, who had to eat it.

Seeing that Callie's shelter was still basically a frame and a tarp and that she is living meal to meal does not instill me with confidence. Priorities, girl, make your pottery later!

I think Keith wanted to go and the vomits gave him an out. I mean, yeah, food poisoning SUCKS in a bed with a bucket, so I am sure that was rough, BUT if he was really as serious about not tapping as he previously stated, he could have just taken it easy and slowly drank a bit of water until the next day to see how he was fairing. Most of the time one is much improved within 24 hours. 

Like @LittleIggy, as soon as that fly went in the ear, I was like, dude, do not stick shit in your ear! You are just pushing it further in. Flood the ear and it will wash out!!!

Add me to that list, @cooksdelight.  I thought this episode alternated between gross and boring, plus I'm getting tired of these people trying to outdo each other to make themselves "interesting" for the cameras.  Most of the time whatever they do takes them so far away from the survival aspect that it ends up biting them in the ass.  Like those Instagram people that risk their lives just for the perfect shot.  I'm over it.  Maybe I'm showing my age.  I was also thinking that Callie is flaky.  She reminds me of (insert previous season female contestant here).  How is it that they find people that are so much like people from previous seasons?  I hate to type people like that but I can't help it, the similarities are too strong.  I feel like a lot of these people are pretty eccentric.  As a group it's bugging me, no pun intended, LOL.  Maybe the only people willing or able to try for 100 days are the more eccentric ones?  Although a couple of them so far seem pretty OK.  I have to admit I don't even know them apart by name yet, which is telling.  Usually by this time in the season I would have been able to do that.  I have been thinking that something about the way they're editing the show is making it harder for me to do that.  Or maybe it's just that some of them look a lot like each other this season.  Judging from other posts, I'm not the only one confusing some of them so far this season.

A lot of the ladies that go for this lifestyle seem to be kind of sunny and perky. It is great that they seem so happy but I understand if it is not everyone’s cup of tea.

I remember watching a documentary show about a woman going to a a survivalist camp to learn how to live in the wilderness by herself. She was the only female and had a very perky personality. In contrast , all the men around her were quite serious. You could tell she was kinda getting on their nerves even though  she really did not mean to.

I've thought the same things.  I can't remember the name of the gal in the previous season but I think she was the one who made a puppet out of a rabbit hide.  I also can't recall if it's Callie or the other woman this season who lives outside all the time.  That is so far removed from anything I would choose to do (or be capable of doing) that it seems flaky to me, probably unfairly.

Speaking very generally, I think women are much more likely to be people pleasers, they're much more apt to smile and appear upbeat, and to be more social.  It's just basic gender differences.  It would be interesting to see a woman on here with an attitude like Roland's lol.

There was a former cop named Traci who had a more rough and tumble attitude. However, a close encounter with a bear set off some of her ptsd, so she did not last very long.

There have been upbeat, positive men on this show too.  I think that particular attribute may be more of a personality type or temperament thing than a gender thing.

Although I do think that more of the women tend to fall into this "earth mother" category that knows how to make cute pottery and is able to identify and use every herb in the book.  The men tend to act more like the hunters while the women tend to act more like the gatherers.  I guess some habits are ingrained in us from thousands of years of evolution.

Yes! At least I think it was Keith, I still haven't for the names down pat, but during the show I did say at one point "that guy looks just like Robin Williams".

No one is talking about the haircut with the knife and the "comb" by Mark (?) but anyways that made me laugh thinking about my family's COVID haircuts.

I am liking this season and the last season too because at least (most) of the contestants are getting food so we are not just watching people starve to death.

Re fly in the ear: the fly couldn't have got into his "inner ear" because it would have had to penetrate the ear drum, so the fly went quite far into his ear canal and maybe the ear canal is really tight and curved, like mine which makes it almost impossible to wear ear plugs, but it wasn't in his inner ear

I spent half of it holding my blanket over my face. Especially during the vomiting. And I find I'm very uncomfortable with the trapping and snaring. I wonder if the animals suffer. I know that's weird since I'm a meat eater, but I feel better when I see the animals die instantly, like from an arrow.

Yes. A few of them are almost starving and it hasn't even snowed yet. I can't see how they can survive the frigid weather if they don't have a good stockpile of food. Unless they suddenly start snaring lots of game, which seems unlikely.

I'm able to tell the two women apart, but the men are a blur, except for the one from South America and the one from Africa because of their distinctive accents. I keep confusing the others and can't remember anyone's name. 

That said, I'm happy we discovered this show, even though we jumped in at season 7.

the women were tough, no doubt,  but pretty clueless about how to feed themselves. Since you can't have barbed hooks, trotlines are worthless, UNLESS, you know to cut the 24 big hooks in half, reforge their ends and then use the fishline to wrap them into 16 treblehooks. Then they're much more likely to retain a fish that's taken the bait. if 2 or more of the hooks got into him. Run your fishline thru all 3 of the hook's eyes. Then it wont matter if the three hooks somehow get separated, you see. 16 hooks fishing for you is a lot better than just one and it frees you up to do other things, like spin cordage made from the rope hammock's internal threads and weave netting. out of your spun strands
