Seriously.... this is the first time I feel like the show is rigged.
First of all, an Idol at F5? Did this ever happened?
And this stupid F4 twist... feels rigged.
And even after all of this, I felt Chrissy (who I don't really life) deserved to win with her FTC performance.
Anyway.... Pretty sad.

Chrissy I threw up because I was so scared

I asked for time off, but I LOST MY JOB TO PLAY SURVIVOR

Ryan Life doesn't give you many opps to prove yourself, I hung in there


Jeff: Stories are impt: we have one with Ben

Ben PTSD, you are lonely, I still can't do loud noises, my wife and kids saved me. But bigger than that, past will eat you alive, the future will save you.

Ben so many vets have reached out to me...

JEFF: we have three of your marine buddies here>>group hugs

3 guys: we haven't seen Ben in 12 years. He was not in a good place. To see him do this...so important

If he pulls one other vet up, that is HUGE!!!

SURVIVOR 36:NEW IDEA:

This Speaks to the past 35 seasons, PREVIEW!

Survivor Ghost Island

Place for Survivor bad decisions (show lots)

NEW CAST can reverse the bad decisions/bad plays

Will the past come back to haunt them again?

haven't watched it yet. From the edit he got we know Ben won. I don't have a problem because he played well. But i do have a problem with the twist at Final 4. That was actually an advantage for Ben, not Chrissy. She fight for the immunity but Ben got the advantage. If it was normal F4, we know Ben voted out and Chrissy might have won. Totally disappointed  :cmas11

Hate that twist. So you don't need any social abilities no more to win a season. He did his moves until F8, and that was enough because nobody could vote him out for the last 4 tribals. So disappointing.

He got the Mike edit from Flops Apart, and I really hate these two because they just based their victories in being on their own for the last 10 days which shows how poor their social gameplay was.

We also got the "I am here for my family" that straightforwardly gives you the million as we have seen with Jeremy and Adam. None of these three played much better games than the other finalists in the Final 3, but they just make the jury emotional to bias them. Hate that in a final tribal council; everybody played a game, and I wouldn't have voted for someone who begs for the vote through emotion. I feel that is trying to make people feel guilty for not voting for them, and I totally cannot respect that moves. Only Adam would have a pass in my honest opinion, and clearly his game wasn't that good to get him a clean win. I just hate those FTCs where you make jurors cry and they vote for you :/

What a promising season!

This was the best season since SJDS and we had a deserving winner! At FTC, Chrissy was AMAZING and had me thinking she would win! Poor Ryan tho!

I dont know if i like the new Final 4 twist, I mean teh voting was bad but directly to fire making? At least have ONE vote.

HYPED FOR NEXT SEASON! The producers are going to have to get creative to make an advantage for Erik or James' mistakes though. Ghost ISland itself looks amazing! And can't wait for the new season! The viewers sould probably go up considering how close 35 and 36 r together!

I still wish Mike had won but i thonk he may come back! And go down as a Survivor God tbh

Everyone: stop putting advantages and extra idols in the game

Production: Ghost Island where all advantage mistakes return!!

S37: Everyone starts with an idol!

The F4 twist was pointless and takes power away from the person who won the FIC and gives it to the person they want to leave the game. Not good. I like Ben as a character who was good for the season, but production were clearly biased towards him, which makes the season take a little hit. Ben would've still been an amazing character/ambassador for marines/etc WITHOUT winning.

I thoroughly hope for the 37/38 cycle we go back to basics, although more than likely I imagine returnees will be in there!

I love Survivor, but this was the worst finale ever with everything helping Ben.
Yeah, the word "rigged" is also in my mind. Too much new things just to help a contestant. Idols in front of his face, twists to help him go to the F3, and then the sympathy vote. Horrible.

Also the reunion was pretty crappy. We didn't heard anything from the contestants, and what was Jeff doing all the time on the audience with weird poses and talking to people we don't care? They asked us on Instagram "What do you want Jeff to ask to the contestants? Tell us!" ??? Why did you want our questions if you are not going to even read it? Really disappointed.

Yeah, I'm pissed, because that wasn't the Survivor I like. They are trying to change things, but they are going the wrong way...

Chrissy should have won even though Ben was on the F3, but as I said, the jury ate Ben's story. STOP voting people by their past lifes. This is Survivor, your must vote by their Survivor gameplay! Ben only survived but idols and things production put on the way. Chrissy survived playing the game, socially and physically. And I didn't want Chrissy to win at first, but once it was between her, unfair-Ben, and invisible Ryan, my decision was made.

Anyway, looking forward next season, and please, throw the twist of fire-making-challenge at F4 to the trash (yeah, I know, it will be played again next season too, I heard Jeff saying it,.. it sucks).

I actually don't know if I liked this season more than Game Changers.
So pissed with production. They've lost track of the concept of this show.

... glad this season is over tbh

back AT tribal

Jeff says Chrissy ties record most wins by a woman

(Who was the other? Sandra? ??? )
She tied with Kim Spradlin, Kelly Wiglesworth, and Jenna Morasca.
Sandra has never won an individual challenge lol

The sheer idea of this F4 twist is FLAWED, and most fans were quick to spot that.
It is beyond me how production doesn't realize they're implementing an unfair game element.

I actually don't remember feeling so disappointed after a season finale since :dick Caramoan.

I'm very sad at the way this season ended. I did not want to see Ben winning as I didn't really like him (at least the way he is portrayed). This season now reminds me too much of Flops Apart with Ben idoling/fire making his way to the F3. I still thought Ben played the best game and deserved the win. I really loved Chrissy and would love to see he return, but I thought Ben had more control over the game, even before his idol run and Chrissy never really seized control (although it is very hard to control the game with 3 idols). Even if Devon won Fire Making I believed he should have won over Chrissy.

I felt like the idols were very easy to find, and I wish they were more difficult to find with how frequently they were played it was upsetting that they made it (at least seem) so easy to find them. Also I found the F4 twist complete BS (although it was essentially the same twist as the BBOTT final 3). I don't like it when competitions decide the fates of people and prefer social game to have more of a presence. Also, in general I liked the way F4 going into a F3 FTC politics are and find it very interesting. Either 3 people can gang up on 1 person and vote them out or it just takes one person to flip to make it 2-2 and go into firemaking. I hate that they changed that and it sucks that Jeff sounds like it will be returning in upcoming seasons so that is no fun.

Also I have mixed feelings on the open forum FTC and wish there was at least a little bit of formality where the F3 can give opening/closing remarks and jurors have the opportunity to address the F3 as individuals. But I also like the flow of the open forum, so I would like see more of a mix in upcoming seasons.

The pros. Much like Game Changers, I enjoyed the new jury format. I feel like it actually allows debate & prevents groupthink. In both cases, neither victory has been a unanimous vote. Also, that final immunity challenge was intense.

Here we go:

Many people believe that there were too many idol/advantages this season. I donít think that was the problem. In Heroes vs Villains, six idols were played at tribal, and I donít hear many people complain about that season having too many idols.

However, hereís where the problem lies: why do idols have to be hidden the same way each season? When looking at seasons like HHH & MvGX, every idol was rehidden the same way giving an advantage to anyone who found and played an idol. Listening to Rob Cesternino, his strategy is to play any idol and just find it again because you know how itís hidden. Also, the fact that the idols literally had a bright X pointing to the hiding spot made finding idols easier this season. Compare this season to HvV in which a variety of contestants were able to find idols due to random hiding spots. We don't need an idol hiding & rehiding theme. In fact, the only idol not hidden with an X was the pasta reward idol (a twist I liked).

For everyone saying that personal stories always result in a win (Jeremy & Adam), Jacklyn in SJDS talked about not having kids during final tribal and she didnít win. That said, stop with the piano music; itís an obvious spoiler.

While Iím not pushing the same "too many idols" idea, I wasnít a fan of how Ben won in a Mike Holloway fashion. I know some people like that, but itís not what I look for in a winner. Some seasons improve when you know the winner. I canít see this season improving. Also, I know Iím not alone, but that reunion was horrible. Half the time was spent justifying Benís win. They talked to like five people. I seriously tuned out.

Disclaimer: Iím sure Ben is a nice person in real life. Iím just commenting on his game in the show.

Totally agree. The F4 twist practically makes the FIC pointless. Might as well just have all 4 of them make fire and the last to start goes! [/sarcasm] The twist would also suggest a F2 will not be occurring for the foreseeable future, which sucks.

I'm also beyond sick of the idols that literally say "dig here" and you get an idol. It looks so sketchy. To find such an advantage in the game you should have to work for it. Either that or don't do them at all. Production should know by now the social savvy of some players can bring better blindsides than idols. I for one, would've been flabbergasted had Cirie's 3-2-1 boot of Sarah been pulled off instead of 73 advantages being played at once.

Next season's preview looks like it is about to go too far. A parody. A fantasy org. It's stupid, and can easily be manipulated by production.
