    Happy Thanksgiving Christiana and Mike

    Enjoying the podcast as always. Here’s a few items for feedback:

    1) It was Tyson that gave Coach life advice in Heroes vs Villains

    2) Regarding Multi-Person Duels, AFTER filming but BEFORE the season started Jeff Probst said in an EW interview with Dalton Ross:

    And while the Redemption Island twist is back, there will be one major change to it, with the elimination of group duels — meaning each competition will truly be a win-or-go-home situation (as opposed to last season, in which players often simply did not have to come in last to stay alive). “We’re not having multi-person duels,” says Probst. “That was part of the experiment [last season]. We wanted to see how many people we could keep in the game until the end. And that’s why we let more people live out there. But we felt like it’s too many people and now we’ve got half the group still in it at the end. So it will only be a one-on-one situation. Loser’s out, winner stays. Otherwise, we’re playing it the same way.”

    Jeff had to correct himself before the 3 person “duel” between Ozzy, Keith, and Jim:

    As we head to the tease for next week, you told me when filming began that there would be no group duels this season, yet by my math we have three dudes hanging out on Redemption Island. What gives?

    Yes, I did say that and I was trying to find a simple way to say that generally speaking duels will only be one on one. I think there are two times where we have double eliminations and have to have a 3 person duel. But only the winner stays. The two losers are out. My bad. Just seemed more complicated to explain it the way I just did.

    3) Coach found the Hidden Immunity Idol way back in Episode 5 and he STILL has it!

    4) The coconut crab, Birgus latro, is a species of terrestrial hermit crab, also known as the robber crab or palm thief. It is the largest land-living arthropod in the world, and is probably at the upper size limit of terrestrial animals with exoskeletons in today’s atmosphere at a weight of up to 4.1 kg (9.0 lb).

    5) Are South Pacific Clams dangerous to remove from the ocean?

    The South Pacific clam is also known as the “Giant Clam” or “Man-Eating Clam”. It is a Legend that South Pacific clams can grab you and hold you under the water. Today the giant clam is considered neither aggressive nor particularly dangerous. While it is certainly capable of gripping a person, the shell’s closing action is defensive, not aggressive and the shell valves close too slowly to pose a serious threat. Furthermore, many large individuals are unable to completely close their shells.
