This was pre-empted by the debate, no?

Well, shit. It's not on the schedule here. The debate aired at 7 pm MDT. TiVo says Code Black comes on after it.

Update: Woo hoo! It came on after the debate... The TV writer's bumbling moves during the immunity challenge had me LOL.

They went from having one tribe clearly at a disadvantage in almost every way to creating a new third tribe that is even worse off. Don't like the guy, but I do have to feel for poor Chris. His only hope if to survive long enough to make the merge.

Let the game is fixed to get Taylor-Figgy as far as possible talk begin. The people I talk to that are watching this show see a lot of Parvati in Figgy. I agree with them. If that tribe ever does lose, they better get rid of her.

I just hope the mixup will lead to a gradual de-emphasis on the Gen X - Millenial thing.

I'm also shocked by how many of these people can't swim.

Or make fire with a flint.

It's like going on Hell's Kitchen with no idea how to make risotto.

Glad David didn't give up his idol again. Not that I'm rooting for him or anything, but it would've seemed like a dumb move.

When Jessica said she'd give someone her legacy immunity, I looked up at the TV expecting her to be talking to David, but no, it was longtime ally Ken. Not a surprise, but kind of amused me.

Gen-X gave up their 3-2 advantage by voting off CC, but there's something to be said for getting rid of people who are so bad in challenges that they get you to TC in the first place.

Given it's still their best way to speak in short hand about the two original tribes, not until there are only 1 or 2 Gen X'ers left. Which is exactly what I expect to happen. Thinking Ken and Jess.

I'm also shocked by how many of these people can't swim.
Really need to be a strong swimmer, not just enough to not drown. It's like going on the Amazing Race if you are afraid of heights.

So does Ken think Jessica can "share" her legacy advantage with him? Did he realize that he would only get that advantage if she is voted out before he is? If he assumes that he will get it when she is voted out, it would be good for him to get her voted off as long as he doesn't piss her off in the process.

I was thinking about that during the challenge, when a player would reach the platform and Jeff would yell "Random tribe name that you just learned! Go!"

Anything is possible. But she did explain it pretty well such that she was only going to pass it if she was voted off. Could be a reason to target her, if she ins't going to help you get any further anyway. But she could be one of Ken's only allies.

And depending on who has it, those advantages often end up being worthless. It's not an idol.

I think it's a function of the casting. They must see hundreds of LA area waiters/waitresses/personal trainers/wannabe actors for the casting. I am sure that can you swim, outdoor experience, fear of heights, etc are questions on their forms. They probably screen out many Eagle scouts/Wilderness guides, etc. To amp up the drama, they will cast people that can't swim or haven't been camping or never drove stick (on TAR), etc. They know if everyone is like Ozzy that the show will get boring fast.

Being a California boy myself, I would think it would be hard to find people that can't swim. Swimming was even part of gym class when I was in high school.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I think a season where the whole cast was at least close to a match from a physical standpoint would be pretty awesome. The challenges sure would be a lot more fun to watch. I'm surprised at who win challenges maybe 5% of the time simply because there is such a disparity when it comes to who is out of shape, can't swim as well, has no balance, or has no endurance.
