    My favorite part of last night's episode was the snake in the camp. I wish there was more of that kind of thing; I've always been fascinated by the living arrangements, the bathroom situation, the bug and vermin stuff going on. I know the isolation from friends and family is difficult, and the social game is a big thing, but 40 days without a bath? With rats nibbling your toes while your sleep? Do they have toilet paper? These are things I'd like to hear more about.

    They have the lagoon to bathe in. Some seasons they've even managed to construct a shower. The bugs -- that would be hard to deal with. Some of them look really bitten up. Katie was the smart one -- she brought these thigh-length socks to protect her legs.

    I loved those socks, Bev! Good for warmth, bug protection, and kind of nerdy/sexy.

    You used to be able to go to the Survivor page and see which luxury item each contestant brought. I miss that. Mine would have been a giant bottle of soap/shampoo. Sitting in a lagoon, without soap, is not the same as bathing!

    I've always wondered about women and their periods? Do they make them win challenges for tampons?

    They supply those items, no bloody challenge necessary.

    And what about any medications they may need on a daily basis? I mean, in all these years, there are people on drugs.

    DJ - I've always assumed that people who required meds to maintain their blood pressure or diabetes or bipolar disorder or whatever, were allowed to bring them. The application to be on the show includes a very detailed medical history section. Maybe they don't even allow people who require daily meds to participate? I am certain that some of the past contestants had to be on some kind of drugs, due to their age/weight/personality.

    Yes, I would like to hear more about these daily sorts of things. I mean, after a while, they might not need to defecate as much seeing as how they are starving, but at first, what do you say? " Uhm, don't follow me out in the woods, I'm NOT looking for an immunity idol, I'm taking a sh*t thank you very much!"

    I'm curious about clothing. On some seasons, the contestants seem to wear only one outfit, every day, the entire time. Other times it seems as if they have multiple outfits. I remember one year there was a lady who was in her bathing suit (a one-piece) every second she was on air. All I could think about was that damp, un-breathable fabric, snug against her body for 40 days, and the multiplying bacteria underneath. Okay, I'm getting myself nauseous here.

    Yeast infections! What the hell with all that dampness, there has had to be some raging cases of yeast infections!

    I'm getting a little bored - the last two episodes have seemed ho-hum.

    I agree...
    They're playing it too safe, they're too careful not to upset anyone. Tyson may have made some enemies last week when he played the immunity idol though, if the other players remember looking for the idol while he kept his find a secret.

    I think it was stupid to vote off Caleb last week. They should have voted off a mother/daughter team player. If they don't smarten up, either Laura or Ciera or Tina or Katie will end up in the final three and with the other three on the jury, they will probably win.

    Let me see if I have this right. Tonight's episode is going to feature someone being voted off by chance? Is that what you folks have seen on the commercials as well?

    Seems to be the case. Not sure why.

    Not sure I like that. You stay on the island for all this time and then you are gone by chance.....?

    Hmmmmm

    I agree... It ain't right! It's supposed to be a game of strategy, not chance. And, I would really be p'd off if Monica was booted out by chance. I didn't like her at first but she's played a good game!
