Castaways drop their buffs and switch things up, and "Edge of Extinction" heats up when an eliminated castaway has to face people they blindsided.

Poor Julia. Still no confessionals from her. 

How has David, who I do like, continued to slide by? Wentworth at least is a good obvious shield.

Victoria has been quite visible for someone who has yet to visit tribal council.

Reem had me in stitches tonight.

Wendy was so funny at the beginning. I can see why she'd be annoying, but she's funny to watch and it's funny to see the others' reactions.

That sure is a messed up rearrangement of tribes (almost typed "tripe"). Because they weren't rearranged. Kama was split in two and that's about it.

This seems like the longest I've heard Joe talk in all his three seasons. Ron is such a sly devil! Conspiring with Julia to search Joe's bag! And Julia says, "There's nothing in his pants." Ahem.

I’m not sure I can continue watching while crazy Wendy is on. She is a lunatic and not in a good way. 

However it’s pretty amusing to have Wentworth’s tribe continue to lose. Different name, same result.

Was Keith really blindsided?  And I’m guessing Reem still hasn’t figured out Keith threw her under the bus for the first vote.  It was way too much with 3 tribes and the EOE tribe of castoffs.  And Chris will have no reason to be bitter at Rick; he and David tried to warn him not to trust Wardog.

With how the tribes came out, this is the first time in many years I’ve believed a tribe swap to be random. 

Big Wendy lives!  I’m glad she threw her former tribe under the bus.  I don’t care that she’s a chicken prison breaker hypocrite or a little quirky, I love her!

So Old Manu/New Lesu voted out two weak links and a strong player and are still losing.  And god, now Wentworth is on a last name basis with Rick?  Disappointed, but not surprised, with the vote.  I don’t think Wardog was as much of a swing vote as they tried to make it seem.  I’m just glad those 3 are at least still losing.  But I want David to stick around, so hopefully he finds Lesu’s idol or they win.  Wardog is definitely making enemies.

After that article about Julia and her lack of confessionals/airtime this season, I have to laugh that the most screen time she got so far was tonight and only involved going through Joe’s bag (a huge pet peeve of mine).  And still no individual confessionals.  And it was on Ron’s orders to go through the bag.

Reem is awful.

I have to apologize to Rick. With my usual good luck and Survivor foresight at the start of the ep, I thought this guy has been getting a lot of THs all season. Maybe he'll win. He was instantly doomed.

Really dislike Wendy at this point, partly bc of what's shown on screen partly bc of her social media posts. Those chickens were probably safer and more comfortable in the pen. And did I hear her suggest fishing instead? So every life is worth saving but fish?

First of all I hate when people go thru other people’s personal belongings. 

So Wendy let the chickens go but they hung around camp. Lose, lose for Wendy I guess? Sorry, I don’t think she’s cute or funny.

why keep Lauren when she’s sick, not eating and crying about being homesick, but whatever, I did not notice if Rick was strong in challenges or not.

I like the bitchy greeting to EOE  Reem gives all the arriving voted off contestants.

Ok. I will give props to the editors I legitimately thought it was going to be Lauren tonight especially with the talk of her missing home which possibly could  have made her the first not to go to Extinction island.  I am actaully surprised she didn't play that idol.

oh and despite being sick she was the first one up the A-frame from her tribe and helped the others up.  So no she wasn't "weak"

And can also add how funny it is that Jeff won't call her Big Wendy but her new tribe does. lol

The chickens will probably hang out around camp even though they're set free. There will be plenty of bugs for them to eat. (Later) One came back. I guess I'm on the chickens' side. They’re the fourth tribe, the Cluck tribe.

Too bad for Lesser losing, those guys have been at every tribal so far. Maybe their tribe name should be Loser. I wonder who Wardog Peacekitty will select to vote out.  Now why does he wear his buff over his mouth? And his ambition is to be an ambulance chaser. With his blender analogy he'd be a great contestant on Worst Cooks in America.

I don't know...I like Wendy. Sometimes, if confronted with a live animal, its hard to imagine killing it to eat it. At least her new tribe, since they did not actually win the challenge for the chickens, could have waited a few days before talking about killing one.

LOL.  I'm so glad somebody else said it first!  I laughed hysterically throughout this episode.  Man, I love this show.  Everything about it.

I rewound the IC like 3 times.  I loved it.  And I usually find the challenges the most boring part.  This one was incredible.  The visuals of the human ladders and the sliding.  And Lauren's incredible body.  Yikes.

I just love this show!  I know people are declaring this season sucks already but I love it.  And yes, Reem is HILARIOUS.  Queen of The Edge of Extinction.  What did she say?  "This ain't the fuckin Holiday Inn.  This is the Edge of Extinction."  Ok I threw the "fuckin" in there but I love Reem and her Reeminess.

All the tribes stay the same, thank god.  Did the producers mess with the bag because they know how much we hate the tribe swapping and not knowing who anyone is.  We kind of know who everyone is and it makes things that much more fun.

Why was Kama openly cheering for (Manu)?  That was hilarious and so mean.

The only thing I find hard is that you guys interchangeably using Ron Burgundy, Devens, Rick, Anchorman, Jared Fogle (sp?) and I rarely know who Rick is.  I guess I do now.  Hopefully nobody uses Wardog's real name here because that will confuse me even more.

“And Wendy is still on the tribe with her tightest alliance—the chickens.”  *dies laughing*  Well said, Rick!!  For you, I'm glad there's Edge of Extinction.  At least things might get a little more entertaining over there.

One thing that’s always pissed me off when two tribes split into three is the fact that one tribe has to rebuild an entire camp.  It puts them at a disadvantage—the other two tribes can sit back and relax because all their stuff is together.  If the show is going to do that, the only fair thing would be to make all three tribes start from zero.

I cannot believe Wendy SERIOUSLY released the chickens!!  It was one thing when Tai was concerned about the chicken, because that was part of who he was--I can't remember if he was a vegetarian, but caring about the chicken didn't feel contrived with Tai.  With Wendy, it's totally contrived and annoying as hell.  As for saving their lives…she’s released them on an island that may or may not be their natural habitat to be fodder for any predator that comes along with a taste for chicken.  Or, as my father pointed out (and as we saw), the chickens don’t go too far from camp, giving the players a chance to catch them and eat them anyway.  *rolls eyes* I am so over Wendy.

And maybe it’s been like this for a while and I'm just now catching on, but it seems like more and more of this season's episodes so far have been with the losing tribe after the immunity challenge as they strategize about who’s going home.  So we’re losing out on the chance to get to know people as more than just strategists.  And then they wonder why we sometimes scratch our heads trying to figure out how somebody won.  Watch it be Julia.

Huh, because I kind of just wanted to punch her in the face and I swear I'm not a violent person. She just became really, really grating after about five minutes of the cutesy, silly, "I'm the weird, lovable goof" shtick.  Like shut up already. And if it was this annoying to me watching at home, bless these people stuck out there, wet, cold and hungry, dealing with that. 

I really hate seasons where one tribe really, really freaking sucks. It just becomes tedious after awhile and I don't get to truly see the dynamics of the other tribes and get to know the other players very well. And once again, Joe'll likely make the merge because once again, Joe's tribes don't lose pre-merge. That's how he's remained safe almost all the times he's played before. And then we'll get to the merge and everyone will be gunning for him the second he loses an immunity challenge. 

I'm also ready for something to happen with the whole Edge of Extinction. I can't imagine they'll re-enter the game as one tribe because then the game starts again with a full cast and they only have so many weeks for the season. If they have to play some challenge to decide who gets back in, well get on with it already. I'm going to assume this is going to go until maybe the merge is about to happen. 

Kind of bummed Rick is out because he's one of the few cast members this season that I actually liked as opposed to just not knowing who the hell they are or just feeling meh.

Tai looked really sad all of the time.  He named a chicken Mark after his boyfriend (do I have that right?)  And would cuddle it really closely, like a child.  He seemed genuinely forlorn.  I'm pretty sure he wept a few times.

I like how terrible that one tribe is because they can't figure out their horrible chemistry and it's kind of fascinating.  I guess Kelley and David are like stubborn polar opposites or something.  Lauren and Wardog, ESPECIALLY Wardog are so dazzled by Kelley and Rick and David aren't.  I couldn't really understand all of their crying over each other at TC, I mean it was weird and unique and nice but really?

Totally agree.  I think they should (for something different) make the new tribe like the Haves camp from S14.  Or, at the very least, do what you suggested.  Or let them pluck creature comforts from their old camps, or something.  

As to the second part of your comment, I think it's been like that for a few seasons now.  My biggest pet peeve is that most seasons seem to be idol hunting, challenges, strategizing, and classifying every vote off as being a blindside.  Last season the editing was so much better, and I don't know why they changed it for this season.  And if we're going to go to EOE for a considerable period of time now that more people are getting voted off, they should have done two tribes.  Now I feel like we're watching four. 

Curious what's going to become of NuOldKama.  I do think Joe is at risk at being voted off, but I'm hoping Ron's comments come back to bite him.  I really don't like him, and not because he's targeting my favorite man bun.  But there is something about a bad vibe he gives off.

Yes!! This has always bothered me too. I guess it’s part of the game but it still always seems so unfair. This is also the number one reason why I would have had chicken for every meal after winning that reward.

I was hoping that we'd see a classic Survivor swing vote elimination, but I guess Kelley and David never got their heads together to think "hey, should we just vote out Wardog?"  Then again, if Wardog was even willing to eliminate Chris to protect Kelley last week, his chief alliance is clearly with her at this point.

The only other non-switch tribe switch in Survivor history that I can recall was in All-Stars, when Amber was the only one to move to new tribe.  So this obviously means that Wendy will win, then  end up marrying one of her old Manu tribemates.

I kinda hated that this 'Kumbaya Survivor' thing took over the vote. "Oh we don't want to vote out anyone!! We luuuuuuvvvvv one another!" Whatever. I really hated though that they collectively took the easy/non-strategic way out between obvious (from physical stature, etc.) vote outs of Rick or the ailing & homesick Lauren. Why were David and Kelley not even considered? "Oh this isn't the time to vote out Kelly." The hell it isn't, what better time than an easy opportunity to rustle up ONE vote by one of the duos? Totally worthless strategically to vote off Jared.

It's not like they want to slaughter beagle puppies, you know ? They're chickens- dumb as rocks with a lot of meant on their bones. Eat 'em !

Still don't like Reem at all. She was probably playing it up for the camera, but to say hey, we're not helping you at all pal, until said pal brings home some fish. Then he's alright ? Hopefully, whenever they get around to doing something with these people, she will go out 1st if possible.

I think Wendy has just gotten too cocky and comfortable. She was on chopping block yet survived 3 times so she has an invincible feeling. If they had lost the IC she would have gotten the boot. Gawd, I was hoping for that.
