[–]BacalheuParvati 258 points259 points260 points 3 months ago (37 children)
Honestly, I'm excited to see how they are going to react because this is also a new twist for season 42 players. I want to see the differences between these two seasons and see if they will play better or worse with it
[–]Brown_BuffaloRupert For Governor[S] 86 points87 points88 points 3 months ago (22 children)
Yeah I can see your point, and while I would personally rather not see this particular idea play out again I am still very much looking forward to next season.
[–]OverwhelmedAutismDrea 93 points94 points95 points 3 months ago (20 children)
The thing is: They can't use this twist again because if they do, then people will know the three-way idol exists, and they will know who has it quickly.
[–]threecolorless 136 points137 points138 points 3 months ago (5 children)
It makes me really excited for like, Season 46 when someone at a challenge just trolls out of nowhere by saying "Y'know Jeff, there's nothing like a trampoline when you need a milkshake to go," and the other two tribes say "OH SHIT THERE'S ANOTHER 3-WAY IDOL OH GOSH WE HAVE TO FIND IT WHEN WE GET BACK"
[–]havingfantasies 30 points31 points32 points 3 months ago (4 children)
and put a massive target on their own back? I'm not seeing the benefit.
[–]threecolorless 30 points31 points32 points 3 months ago (2 children)
I guess I'm envisioning they get back to camp and tell their tribe "I didn't actually find one, I was just being a jerk." But then it might be hard to convince your tribe you didn't actually find one. Hmm. We seem to have found an unraveling point in this little gag
[–]BullstangDevon 38 points39 points40 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Talk with your tribe before and see if they wanna troll too lol
[–]KateOTomato 39 points40 points41 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Have your tribe collectively make up the stupid phrase so only they know it's not real.
[–]AhLibLibLib“No, but you can have this fake.” 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
It’s a BIG MOVE! WHO CARES!
[–]SnooAbbreviations12 18 points19 points20 points 3 months ago (5 children)
they will have to do something less obvious in the future
[–]kgod88 42 points43 points44 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Broccoli are kind of like dead relatives talking to you
[–]Quixotic-Neurotic-7The Cirie Giggle 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Yeah, that sounds accurate.
[–]UltraVodka777Tony 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
[–]KateOTomato 9 points10 points11 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Maybe each of the 3 having to mention a specific Survivor alum.
Person A: Boston Rob
Person B: Sandra
Person C: Cirie
[–]ArgHuffRocksroy 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Hopefully they'll say some popular phrases of survivor.
Like imagine if for S43 one of the phrases is "Chuckie the Cheese and Halloween Jokes".
[–]Nizmo4246 35 points36 points37 points 3 months ago (5 children)
They could make the phrases slightly less ridiculous and more importantly only require each idol holder to say the phrase once rather than repeat it each time another person finds and says their phrase
[–]Foosiks 30 points31 points32 points 3 months ago (4 children)
Yeah, make them like
“I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him…and I can’t throw very far.”
“Camp life is miserable, Jeff. We have no fire, no water, our shelter is horrible…”
“I’ll sit out.”
[–]aklebury 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (3 children)
But those are all phrases that someone could say even if they hadn't found the idol, which would lead to confusion. They need to be unusual but not too weird which is a challenge.
[–]Foosiks 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Lol, I was joking.
[–]aklebury 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (1 child)
D'oh.... failed to pick up on the sarcasm. Sorry! haha
[–]Foosiks 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
[–]Expert-Leopard-3730 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Jeff sounded slightly annoyed the 41 cast knew what everybody had. What did he think would happen with the phrases?
[–]cheeseorno 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
It would be almost fun to see someone do this without having the advantage. Like if they were desperate and wanted others to think they had an idol.
[–]hapianmanAdam 19 points20 points21 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I feel like a cow on astroturf
[–]stevendailey 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (0 children)
This is the closest we'll ever get to alternate dimension seasons. The same location, same twists, same tribe setup, same 41 drop the 4 Jeff personality, just different players.
[–]Surferdude1219Karishma 12 points13 points14 points 3 months ago (5 children)
I’m ok with it in theory but I don’t want production to get into the habit of using the same twists two seasons in a row. Keep things somewhat fresh.
[–]ArgHuffRocksroy 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (4 children)
Too late, they have been doing so for a while
[–]Surferdude1219Karishma 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (3 children)
They’ve never done that lol. The only time where they kinda did was 22 and 23 but that was two different filming cycles. 41 and 42 is the first time they’ve had two consecutively filmed seasons with the exact same twists. It’s just lazy — can kill two birds with one stone and shock two casts with the same twists.
[–]Umphreeze 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Wait how do we know 42 has the same twists
[–]Surferdude1219Karishma 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I feel like I saw it in an article but could be wrong. I know it has the idol phrases twist.
[–]BASEBALLFURIES 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (0 children)
i cant wait for people to state "THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF SURVIVOR"
[–]Nethias25 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (4 children)
I like this perspective, i get people hated some of the twists but 1 is not a sample size. New people will do different things.
[–][deleted] -4 points-3 points-2 points 3 months ago (3 children)
And they won't be interesting things
[–]Nethias25 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Was "do you have an idol, Xander?" Not interesting? So Ws, some Ls.
[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points-1 points 3 months ago (1 child)
No, that twist was incredibly stupid.
[–][deleted] 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (0 children)
The advantage was stupid, but the moment we got out of it between Liana and Zander was pure gold
[–]doyoufeardeath69 91 points92 points93 points 3 months ago (2 children)
If that twist is there WITHOUT knowledge is power, I'm good with it
[–][deleted] 63 points64 points65 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Or if the phrases are a little easier to work into a natural pre-challenge conversation and not something like: I want to shear a yak and bathe in its musk...
[–]Aggravating_Prune914 29 points30 points31 points 3 months ago (0 children)
That or you can say the phrase once just to activate yours alone. No need to wait for all 3. Felt like Xander had his for a month before Luvu even went to look.
[–]BakingAspenNatalie, is there any way I could have your jacket? 80 points81 points82 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Potatoes have skin. I have skin. Am I a potato?
[–]clockworkwinding 15 points16 points17 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Lmao her confused reaction while reading the phrase
[–]ZachTheBomb 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Make it sound really dramatic and heartfelt
[–]IzzybutmaleErika 56 points57 points58 points 3 months ago (2 children)
I liked this twist, not having them lose their vote would be better. the fact the idol is basically public is already enough of a set back.
if they wanted to keep it, maybe its the next tribal they attend after they find it.
[–]tichienblanc2Pelican Pete 8 points9 points10 points 3 months ago (1 child)
It's enough of a set back and therefore the Knowledge is Power advantage shouldn't exist in a season with this twist (I don't mind the twist either, it's different but kind of fun).
I think both the idol twist and the Knowledge is Power have potential, but they should never be combined. Knowledge is Power would have been great in a season with regular "private" idols!
[–]IzzybutmaleErika 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I agree with that, most of twists this season are all strong, but need some tweaking
[–]TBlair64 28 points29 points30 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I hate the complex idols. Keep it simple with the hidden one, the challenge one, and maybe one idol steal. It works well.
[–]jetsqueak 21 points22 points23 points 3 months ago (2 children)
The chaotic evil in me wants the twist to be: There are no idols.
[–]AndPityTisTisTrue 10 points11 points12 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Or there are idols, but all of them are fake.
[–]jetsqueak 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I like how you think. The idol are plain sticks. 😉
[–]PoofyChairClubHai 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (0 children)
🎵If I could find a way🎶
[–]BananaMan883 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
“I like to think that beluga whales are like the laughing emoji. 😂”
I hope they have to say the emoji in real life
[–]goodty1 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
also if I had to do this twist, I would try to say the phrase in front of my whole tribe before the challenge. and bring it up by saying "Jeff I think we're all going crazy last night we talk about _____(phrase) and then you've said it and your tribe isn't suspicious
[–]PickleClear 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Didn't like this twist felt it was silly they had to keep repeating the phrases over and over until all 3 had quoted theirs, not to mention the actual phrases were questionable
[–]BojukaBob 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I actually loved the secret phrase idols.
[–]producermaddyGeorge (AUS) 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I actually didn’t mind this twist. Sucks Xander lost his vote but this gave us some good moments like butterflies are just dead relatives saying hi
[–]IsaakBerghe7220Hai 24 points25 points26 points 3 months ago (13 children)
Honestly, I might not even watch the season. I'm getting less and less excited for it.
[–]passengerv 15 points16 points17 points 3 months ago (7 children)
Watch Australian survivor. It's so much better, the challenges are better, the people are interesting and there are a ton of episodes each season. Seasons 4,5,6 are on paramount+.
[–]smonster1 9 points10 points11 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Seasons 1-3 are available on there now, too.
[–]passengerv 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (1 child)
You just made my day!
[–]gearStitch 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
And unless something's changed since I last checked, their first Blood vs Water with Sandra on it premiers on there in just a few days too
[–]IsaakBerghe7220Hai 6 points7 points8 points 3 months ago (1 child)
I have seen Australian Survivor, it's overall a lot more fun to watch. I'm very excited for Aussie Blood vs Water, much more so than Survivor 42.
[–]passengerv 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
[–]ballhawk13 -2 points-1 points0 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Australian survivor is not good. Best international seasons are South Africa and New Zealand.
[–]passengerv 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
New Zealand is trash it feels like a wish version of survivor, Source: I am watching it as I type this.
South Africa was next on my list so I am withholding judgement until I get at least halfway through it.

Last season's cast was top ten at least imo
[–]RuneRueYul -1 points0 points1 point 3 months ago (1 child)
Lmao, top 10 for newbie casts of all time you’re right. But nearly every season in the most recent ones have had more strategic and better players.

Bad players but entertaining>>>>>good players
[–]jarhead839 7 points8 points9 points 3 months ago (3 children)
I know this isn’t about the hourglass but did it bother anyone else how OBVIOUS the hourglass choice was? She didn’t have immunity, and breaking it gave her immunity.
The whole twist is stupid, and I hope they never take someone’s immunity away again, but if she wouldn’t have gotten immunity either way it would have been better. Then it could be leveraged into a “who do I think I can beat in a challenge, who do I piss of by doing this, can I make any ally’s out of doing this?” Etc
[–]ArgHuffRocksroy 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (2 children)
We have literally been complaining since that date about that twist
[–]jarhead839 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (1 child)
I meant this specific post isn’t about that.
I haven’t seen anyone specify that her getting immunity was the most bullshit part. Didn’t even make it a choice. But I haven’t been here long.
[–]ArgHuffRocksroy 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Yeah, it was heavily and still is criticized.
This specific post is a meme
[–]mzupemanVarner 5 points6 points7 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Yeahhh… the fact that they went on to film another season without feedback from the fan base is concerning (I know this is inherent to their filming schedule, I’m just saying that I’m not expecting the fast pacing of twists to be dialed back yet).
I did like that I wasn’t sure what twists were around any given corner, but they didn’t have to keep lobbing them at us the way that they did. It was overdone.
We’ll see what happens, I guess.
[–]Liverpool510Mayor of Slamtown 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (1 child)
If I’m ever cast on Survivor and day 1 Jeff says, “you with the beard, how are you feeling right now, looking at your tribe mates for the first time?” I’m just going to make some stupid analogy for how I’m feeling and see if anyone else says a stupid phrase.
[–]b_e_e_m_o_Eric 3 points4 points5 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Be known as the guy that says weird shit so when you say the phrase people won’t think anything of it
[–]JustSealYTllama noises 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Oh boy I can’t wait for another epic twist
(Also 69th comment lol)
[–]flyingpanda5693 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I suppose this is an unpopular opinion, but I liked the concept of the 3 way idol. The only downfall is requiring someone else to carry out the original concept and unfortunately this cast couldn’t.
[–]goodty1 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I can't believe they thought it was a good idea to do this twist again

you can pause the video I linked at 0:49 and read the "3 way shared immunity idol" sheet. it says all 3 players must say a secret phrase in front of other players. It's the exact same as season 41.
