What's also bull**** is the number of 4-episode legs this season. Last season was so short, what happened? Did people not like it? I did!

I've watched the broadcast live for several periods of this one and I afraid the duration of the episodes were cut off. Like instead of 1 min 30 secs one (in syndication I mean without the ads), sometimes they cut it into like 1-hour episode (including the ads) that resulted into the ep having 30-ish minutes duration.

I afraid when this happened in the latest Survivor edition there, it resulted into 60-ish episodes as I saw over there (instead of 30-ish usually) and I oofed. Idk if we're going to have 40-ish eps again since HMLM tend to have average of 20-40ish eps with the 2-3 hours airtime, but with the airtime being cut that much I really, really worry on this tbh. And it's just my hypothesis.

Anyone have any info on the broadcast duration as well, as in why they're cut this much? It's unusual to me too tbh.

Bull****.

Liane has hurt her hand or her wrist or whatever, and the doctor says she can't compete in the Head-to-Head. The challenge is to balance on a rolling log as if it were a horse, two team members fight, then the other two team members fight, followed by a tiebreaker. Since Liane can't do it, Eviatar has to do it alone, giving the team an unfair advantage as Liane probably doesn't have good balance and would have lost.

Let me take you back to season 4. Alexa badly hurt her leg on that season, and then she and Raz came to a task where they had to roll on a log in the water. Alexa obviously cannot do this task, so Raz has to do it alone. But they had to serve a 1-hour penalty before he could.

Also in season 4, let me take you back to the likes of Roni & Yael and Gal & Liel. Both teams had one member hurt themselves during a Head-to-Head and could no longer compete in it. In both of those cases, the teams forfeit the Head-to-Head and had to wait until all other teams passed them and then serve the 15-minute penalty.

Eviatar & Liane should have forfeit their Head-to-Head and ended up in last place. Bull****.

Also remember last season with Noy & Hadar! I remember they were medevac-ed when one of them got injured, and they were rushed to the hospital? In the end of the leg, they're eliminated.

Since I'm trying to catch up, I'm really, really curious on how could this happen, and how in the end Eviatar was allowed to complete this task alone. Like how.

If there is any way to watch this online, would someone be able to let me know via PM? I would love to check out the Armenia episodes if it is possible! :2hearts:
I'd rather walk alone than let them throw dirty confetti. ♥

Feels like there's more 4-episode legs this season. That's a good and bad thing imo :(

The legs seemed to be designed to air over two episodes like last season, but COVID forced them to extend the season by splitting each episode in half.

Ben's instructions during the block task.  :funny:

Omen & Neta finding an empty clue box.  :funny:

Apparently this season took inspiration from Survivor US as well as TAR US.

Given how few detours and roadblocks HaMerotz has done over the past few seasons, could anyone have predicted that this season would have more detours through its first two legs than TAR32?  :funny:

Looks like there was a mistake made somewhere. The task at the school was to spell out the name of the man who invented the Armenian alphabet in 405AD, according to Shahar's explanation, and the man in question is Mesrop Mashtots.

However, the name they actually had to spell out was Komitas, an unrelated priest and musician from the late 1800's...

The Cascade task was pretty brutal.

Had Shay & Shani been eliminated that would have been harsh with Lian & Eviatar checking in right before them.

The fact that they started the next leg at the tail end caught me off guard.

So GB, what do you think about Assaf & Netanel? Hope you like them, because two straight legs without your least favorite aspect of HaMerotz has led to two straight leg wins by the most boring team left.

Anything is better than elimination via dice roll.
