yea, editing would be a nightmare, with all the cameras rolling, and all the little things to consider. I am sure they watch the whole 39 days before making the first episode, to see what things to highlight (for example, Jerri's bitchiness). i think that Survivor 1 started airing while they were still on the island, I think that one reward that Kelly won was to go to a bar and watch the first episode. Maybe somethin glike Idol, have all the votes done by tribal council, but maybe let America decide teh million dollar winner. Like have the live show as always, and instead of haveing the 3rd person decide who comes, just let America decide who out of the 3 will win. Give them a 1 hour show, let them state their cases, and do the reunion show while people vote via 1-800 number (or 1 900) and then announce the winner at the end of teh show. I think that the anticipation would make for very interesting tv, and it would ensure people watch the reunion show, therefore enabling CBS to gain more advertising dollars for that show. Oh, and if anyone from CBS is reading this, I am currently unemployed, and full of great ideas for Survivor!
