This episode was crazy. First, there’s Ben, who is finally getting back to the strategy that won him his season by finding an idol. The whole thing of not talking to Jeremy was really nuts. He’s mad that Jeremy was part of a plan to not let himself get voted out? Come on, man. Then there was Tony, who has been talking the last few episodes about needing to get rid of Jeremy because he’s popular and will get lots of votes at the end (I love Jeremy, but is this even true?) but has twice now orchestrated Jeremy’s salvation, pissing off the very people he’s been working with, most specifically Ben. Then you have Nick, who I guess forgot he was part of a plan to vote Tony out and sold him immunity for a fire token and a couple of cookies, not to mention then doing an unbelievably bad job of trying to lie about it to Tony’s face. Not to mention Michele and Kim hopping out of the immunity challenge for food. Kim was probably thinking back to One World when she was at the Survivor auction taking a shower and eating chocolate and peanut butter while people were sitting on the bench waiting for an advantage or something and not getting anything.
It sucked to see Kim go, but at least she tried something. Tony seems to really be outplaying, outwitting and outlasting everyone right now, so it feels like he can focus on working with people who aren’t trying to get rid of him, which is maybe the appeal of keeping Jeremy around people like Kim and Sophie who are more likely to get a plot against him going.May 1, 2020 at 2:58 am #1203456846
Yeah i have to say Kim has been suprising me the last 2 episodes. She is the only one trying something. Michele is just there, Nick cant make up his mind and that one token for immunity when his plan was to vote Tony out was stupid.
Tony is in prime position to win, he has the best resume yet (If he gets to the end). Sarah might be second, or win if the jury happens to be bitter. Jeremy is not much of a threat like everyone is saying. Tony/Sarah should bring Ben and Michele. They win in any scenario in that final 3.May 2, 2020 at 10:26 am #1203459007
I sort of didn’t want Kim on Edge of Extinction because I wanted Natalie to come back. Now with Kim there, her chances went way down. They’re both great players and good at challenges. I agree she was the only one doing stuff so it’s sad to see her go.
Tony has become the biggest threat. He’s for sure winning right now. How easy the whole token extortion went for him, 3 immunities in a row (one partially thanks to Nick), this tribal council this week…they’re just letting him win at this point. And I’m here for it. He’s PLAYING.May 2, 2020 at 8:57 pm #1203459697
Tony is definitely getting the winner’s edit right now. This season has been one of the best if not the best season of Survivor ever. It’s crazy how everyone is letting Tony dictate everything. It could be his strong personality.May 3, 2020 at 12:48 pm #1203460729
In a hypothetical scenario in which we have Tony, Natalie and Michele/Sarah in the final three, who wins?May 4, 2020 at 3:08 pm #1203463178
I guess anything can happen, but it’s so hard to imagine that Natalie can do anything post returning from the Edge (if she does) to beat Tony based on what he’s done. That said, Natalie’s strength on the Edge could potentially sit well with the jury, since they’ve all been living there too and only experiencing the main game through tribal council since their elimination, which for some of them has been quite a long time.May 4, 2020 at 4:04 pm #1203463246
i will love it Danni or Yul or even Adam come back. That will be such a big upset. If any of them get it, they will for sure go into the final 3, as non threads.May 7, 2020 at 8:13 am #1203468904
I don’t understand why Jeremy was considered a threat. He wasn’t great at challenges, didn’t have a lot of strong social connections and didn’t have a resume. At the first tribal, with 7 people left, there was a unique chance to remove the biggest threat (Tony) and split the big trio (Tony, Sarah and Ben). It would’ve been easier than trying at the next one. Michele and Jeremy were on the bottom, so it was up to Denise to get only Nick. But both Denise and Nick were foolish to try to work with the big three. Nick is naive, but I really think Denise should’ve tried her attempt at Tony at the first tribal. I don’t get why no one even tried to get Tony out.
At the second one, I really wanted Denise’s faking to go wrong and get her out. Again, I don’t see the logic in her aligning with the strong three. Michele winning the immunity was a highlight. Didn’t see it coming, but damn, it felt so good. Natalie proves to be a beast, with freaking fourteen tokens! Getting three advantages for the challenge, I think she’s getting back.
I don’t like the fact that the whole jury gets to to spend weeks with the returnee and therefore, are more inclined to vote for them, just as it happened in season 38. Although, if one of them does make it to the final three with Tony, it will be hard to beat his maneuvers.May 7, 2020 at 8:45 am #1203468974
I was watching last night and thinking that Tony, Sarah or someone must be running one helluva campaign that people feel like Jeremy is as big a threat as he is. I know he’s likable, but I don’t see why he’s the person who has gotten this label of being so tough to beat at the end. Nick was an absolute idiot to vote Jeremy out instead of going for Ben. I don’t know why Nick thought he could get into a favorable position with Tony, Sarah and Ben, an alliance they know is solidly happening. Everyone also seemed to know that Denise was with Ben, so she could have been an easy next vote. I can more understand why no one is targeting Tony right now. I think he just seems too connected, so you don’t know who you could even talk to to try to plot against him. I too was kind of hoping Denise’s ploy would backfire and they’d just vote her out, but it also felt like this was what Nick deserved for his poor decision in the tribal before. Michele winning that immunity was so great! I was doing a happy dance right along with her.
It’s burning me up how likely it seems that Ben will be in the final three. They’ve already told us that he’s a dynamo at making fire, so he’s unlikely to be eliminated at final four, and he’s got an idol that has to be played before that, so there aren’t going to be many chances to get rid of him, though clearly the group plan now is to get rid of Michele and whoever comes back from the Edge. I feel like he’s played so poorly in terms of strategic and social games.May 7, 2020 at 8:56 am #1203469004
I feel like Natalie is coming back and is easily sailing into the final three (i mean two immunity idols potentially if tyson gives the other back).
My guess how this is panning out:
runner up: Natalie
6th: BenMay 7, 2020 at 9:53 am #1203469160
I Think nick was an idiot and didnt have any understanding of the game , i am very anxious to rewatch his first time and see if lucked into a win … I think Jermey was a threat beacause people feel for him and his love of his fanmily..
It was very curious who they showed from exile … They wrapped up Ambers time on Survior … They Gave us alot of Nat, and moments of Tyson, Rob , Parv, Wendall and Yul …. I think that Nat is coming back and i do see her making the final three .. I think she will come back and align with Michele and get ben or Denise out and i can see a final four sutuation where she does fire and beats someone .. She is a beast and the edit has reinfornced that many many times so i would prepare for her to be in the end
the only other people to get a good edit are Michele and Tony , so i think they are also in the top three … Ben has played horribly, Denise has played poorly after getting Sandra out and Sarah isnt trying to win. she is playing to make it further not to win.
I think Tony or Nat for the win , and i think they have both played the hands they got dealt and played strong games… so im happy either way … For me the only two who dont deserve to win are ben and Sarah as they havent done anything at least Denise got Sandra .. Votes be dammed i think Michele has played a wonderful social game and has been able to manevour many situations without getting the boot so while i dont think she is at tonys level i think she has done a great job and i woulndt be mad if she won

Tony really deserves to be the winner and they are editing him that way. I don’t see Survivor legends rewarding someone who was on Exile most of the time and didn’t really play the game. Natalie had the unfair advantage of being on Exile the whole time and being able to rack up all those fire tokens. No way the best of all time make a stupid decision like the idiots from two seasons ago (the worst Survivor season ever) and reward someone who didn’t play the game.May 11, 2020 at 10:49 am #1203476176
Natalie is def coming back, its btw her and Tyson imo. Although i would love for my fav Parv to get back, i feel like her reputation kinda killed her game and this is most likely the last time i will get to see her play.
Tony is def winning, Natalie gets runners up if she makes it in the game. Sarah i think gets 5th due to idols from Nat and Ben. Ben either wins fire challenge and eliminates Natalie or loses it. Michele is most likely making final 3. Nat can win if she gets the 2 cops out.
I am actually shocked at how Nick is playing. Every conversation that he has, he looks dumbfounded and out of it. He literally has no clue what he is doing, he plays the advantage against Ben and then votes for Jeremey??
Like AWDubay said i feel like i need to recap his season to see how he won.
