Current and former players shared their thoughts on the events of this week’s episode of Survivor and on Rudy Boesch’s death.
One fun element of Island of the Idols is watching Boston Rob and Sandra’s reactions to each Tribal Council. Seeing how respected castaways view the events of a Survivor episode and how they view particular players can be entertaining to follow. With there being such a large Survivor fanbase on Twitter, previous and current castaways often share their opinions about the episode.
I do have to say that so far, this Island of the Idols cast is shaping up to be one of the quietest group on Twitter in quite some time. While contestants from David vs. Goliath and Edge of Extinction made a lot of noise on social media, this latest group of castaways have been present but not too active.
After the entire incident with Alec Merlino that kept him from attending the reunion show, I could see why that’s the case, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. That said, a few members of this 39th class still shared a few comments on episode 7, along with other players including some all-time greats. Jason Linden who got blindsided last week was quick to chime in.
Unintentionally poking fun at the Applebee’s reward from a few weeks ago has been a mainstay so far.
This week’s Island of the Idols visit drew a lot of attention. Maybe you picked up on Boston Rob hugging Janet, but Sandra simply giving a handshake. The two-time winner explained why she actually couldn’t hug Janet.
The flashback to Chris Underwood’s big move last season got some of the Edge of Extinction cast into it.
However, it was that moving and surprising Tribal Council that had everybody talking.
On top of all that, an even more emotional moment shared amongst the Survivor community was losing Rudy Boesch. Here’s what a few old school castaways and legends of the game had to say about this Survivor icon.
It’s amazing how Island of the Idols followed up a great episode last week with maybe even a better one this week! The combination of smart, strategic gameplay with unique personalities who aren’t afraid to talk about sensitive topics has given this season a thoroughly entertaining pre-merge game. Hopefully, that trend will continue as the two tribes become one.
