Everyone did know Naseer had the idol
Absolutely agree.Well played by Xander, however they fell for that so easily. When I saw him basically tell everyone that he’s got it, and will play it for Evie, and then so obviously/boastfully showing it off at tribal and holding it up - surely Liana and co would’ve thought is he bluffing? Is this a misdirect? To mask who really has it etc?It was comically obvious was Xander was doing last night, and it's incredible that they fell for it.
The clue said it had to be in his possession when he was asked.Just to be nitpickey… xander gave his idol some chick (forgot her name), so when he was asked did he have an idol he could say no, yet a minute late the chick with the idol says, xander I still have YOUR idol do you want me to play it for Evie ?
So in reality he still had an idol, he just wasn’t holding it
Can't argue with that.Nah i hate it. Its just a tool to slam dunk against the minority and give no outs as far as entertainment go. It will almost never be of any use to someone in a minority and if the majority get it then it cant be countered and takes no strategy to play. Just a TV killer
At least this one could provide entertainment once its known its in play
With shorter seasons I doubt we will ever see players voted out return to the game.You can criticise a lot about this season, but at least everyone who has been voted out has gone home.
Yeah I can see this argument as well.To me, Survivor 41 appears to be what happens when the US producers try to make their version more like the Australian one
Gone way too far down the rabbit hole i think lol. Im not sure Xander would be believing that given it was his idol so he knows what it looked like an hour ago when he gave it to Tiffany and asking a lot for her to make a replica out of random bits and stringI have been thinking far too much about this. But I was wondering if Tiffany could have returned a fake idol to Xander, telling him it's the real one and saying that she really thinks Liana will see through the ploy and ask Tiffany for the idol - like a double bluff. Then when Liana asked Xander for the idol, he could give it to her thinking it's a real one, so he wouldn't be lying as such. It's not a lie if he thinks it's real.
Tiffany would have then needed to play the idol, but they could have gotten Deshawn out. So probably not a better outcome overall, given that Sydney left and they still have the idol
Yeah it was mostly a hypothetical, it would have required him to keep it wrapped and not actually check it. Then when Liana opened it, would he have had to come clean? I wonder if production would have intervened etc.Gone way too far down the rabbit hole i think lol.
