Starts next week. I’m curious to see how the abbreviated schedule will affect the editing. I always took each episode as reflecting 3 days - one for politicking, the reward challenge, and the final challenge and tribal. I’m sure there are no plans to reduce the number of episodes, so we’ll see what happens.
It was…underwhelming. The tiny groups make things different but I’m not sure it makes them more interesting. Challenges were fun, except the poor yellow team’s oar being in a bright yellow net. Maybe the other groups had their colored oars hidden in similar colored things but I didn’t notice that. No one to really dislike yet but JD is trying way too hard. For the love of all that is holy I don’t want half my episode to be various sob stories. And coming out of Covid that seems like all they’re gonna do this season.
