Survivor: One World Episode 3 Thoughts

I don't have a heck of a lot to say about this episode. It basically solidified what we already knew in terms of alliances and who was going to be going first. It also confirmed that every person in the world knows that Colton has a hidden immunity idol.

One thing that was interesting is the realization that Jay might be smarter than he looks. He was given a lifeline by the majority misfit alliance, and he snapped it up, knowing that he would be in trouble otherwise. I wasn't entirely sure that he would have the self-awareness for Survivor; like many, I equated him with Fabio from Nicaragua. I think he showed more today and he might be the men's player to watch for at the end.

A final thought for discussion: The women had so much success this episode due to the men. Seriously, they warmed up at the men's fire, got a source of fire from the men, and even used the men's puzzle as a guide at the immunity challenge to help to catch up quickly. This isn't to excuse the men for Bill's failure to finish the puzzle first, but just to point out an interesting subplot of this episode.
