Survivor Caramoan - Episode 2 Discussion Thread - NO SPOILERS PLEASE
The first rule of Fight Club is ... you don't talk about fight club.
Well then the first rule of survivor is do not form a couple alliance in the open the first day. The stupidity of forming a couple alliance, and then joining with another couple alliance is obvious to any real fan. This was downright stupid, and one of the smarter members of the "cool kid" alliance paid for it. Reynold is lucky it was not him going home, they need his strength, because they are going to have to get rid of Shamar very soon. That man is down right crazy.
I also have to again comment on how much I am tired of the HAntz family. Please MArk Brunet, enough it enough. Let this be the last Hantz on the show. So Brandon is upset his alliance mate Francesca got voted out first in her two seasons. But why did Dawn, who seemed very reasonable about it, pay the price. Why are you talking about going down in a blaze of glory when nobody is even targeting you. He is going to cause havoc with his stupidity.
Shamar is still doing his lazy days of summer routine and not lifting a finger at camp. Lucky for him he seems to back up his plan to rest for the challenges. He looked like an animal pulling the boat even with the celeb tribe and made great time on the back end too. He is a force of strength, which is the only reason he is here.
How about that IC. Have you ever seen a tribe send two girls who can't swim or hold their breath out to do a diving contest. I mean Andrea, Eric and Brenda were a machine getting rings as quick as can be. But Sherri, Julia and Hope were terrible. I should not blame Sherri, as she did seem to get 9 of the 10 rings herself, but she had no help. When she ran out of energy, no one even dived in. What a waste. But when they finally finished, Shamar pulled them back fast and Reynold tried to do his magic again. But Malcolm and Secret Agent Man got it done, and the fans go to tribal for the first time.
Once the fans get home, Reynold throws Shamar under the bus, which is his clear strategy, but I am not sure it was the best idea since he is one of the only ones that pulled his weight at the challenge. THey had a nice fight and Shamar made it simple, you thin you have the votes, prove it. Amazingly Eddie and Reynold did not seem panicked that something was amiss in the vote out the mean big loud guy. Instead Reynold goes idol hunting and Sherri and Laura appear to save Shamar.
On idols, next time, just hang them in camp in plain sight. Whoever hides idols needs to be fired. this is ridiculous. I used to think Russell was great for finding idols without clues. Now I realize he just bent over to tie his shoes and there they were.
CBS showed Matt making the obligatory "what will I do?" interview, but I had no doubt. The is no way he is dumb enough to go into a foursome as the fifth wheel. Reynold apparently likes his pants TIGHT so they can show off his bulge, or at least the bulge the idol made. I credit Laura for being the first one to really play the game. Not having time to talk, she does it at tribal and puts the idol on the table for all to see. Sherri set the table by telling everyone to stick with the plan and vote out Allie. So we lose Aliie to a stupid early alliance. Leaving the tribe shelter to sleep with your new cool friends is suicide, as shown last night. I thought they were fans. Oh well, next week I suspect it will be more Hantz garbage.

3. Its a good show in my opinion
But to each his own. I am sure there are television shows, books, essays, films, music, performances or other forms of entertainment that you enjoy and others have never experienced and never want to. If you were to start a thread about one of them, I suspect I would leave the thread alone for people who did enjoy that item. I wish you well.
