Problems with Survivor Season 31 Episode 1

Here it is.  Plenty of excitement as the fans get their first all-star season since Heroes vs. Villains and… I actually think the first episode was very bad.  It put so much focus on the Ta Keo tribe that I knew for a fact they would lose the challenge.  To add to the problems the immunity challenge was really bad.  It put too much focus on one person to win it or lose it, and I prefer if that person has to sit out the rest to even it out.

On the good the first reward challenge was great, and I really enjoyed seeing the initial alignments, as I enjoy having to quickly figure out who is aligned with whom. It became apparent that it was Vytas, Terry, Kelly (1), and Woo vs. Kelley (29), Abi-Maria, and Shirin.  Jeff, Peih-Gee, and Spencer were in the middle.  Vytas said in an interview that he is a very close friend to spencer which makes me wonder if Spencer made a huge mistake in betraying him.  Spencer did much better than anticipated.  Stephen said Kass was going on and on about how Spencer would be the first one out.  Many fans believed her, but he was very safe this vote.

The idol being hidden in a challenge was shockingly disappointing.  I was just no that intrigued, as I thought it would be better if everyone knew it was there or if getting required abandoning the challenge instead of abandoning cheering.

The three big winners are 1. Kelley (29)-She found the idol and is on the majority.  2. Spencer- for running the tribe it seems.  3. Joe- For winning the immunity challenge.

I think the biggest candidates to go next are from Bayon 1. Stephen, 2. Kass, 3. Jeremy.

From Ta Keo- 1. Abi-Marie, 2. Kelly (1), 3. Terry
