I guess I’m the only one around here who likes having Redemption Island. At least they are forced to show 2 challenges an episode; seems like they have been mostly combined immunity/reward for some time now which I find annoying.
I have a feeling they are continuing RI just to experiment with the idea. If they ever use it again I bet it’ll be either just pre-merge or just post-merge.
That’s very much a double edged sword even if I granted it was much of an advantage at all. Despite the high drama, you would still like to see how the alliances/strategies are shifting.
