everyone is d3f3nder. everyone is snakes. everyone is xofelf. everyone is reck.

see today we've learned that having diverse playstyles is a good thing. well done guys.

bad twist idea: tribe swap every round.

Twist: Each spectator only has access to one player's confessional and if the player ends up winning then the spec gets credited with a win as well
PrivateI: I wish I could bang on the home keys on my keyboard to create an appeal to emotion. It sounds so...soothing.
CuddlyCaucasian: Mafiascum: a land where pansexuality is widely accepted and understood while two people who share the same first name cause mass confusion

It's actually been done a few times (BotB, Eon, Medevac are some examples), most of the time the player exiled is safe that round but can't talk to anyone, and they usually get a reward or a chance at one

the whole once a round someone gets sent to exile has never been done. pretty not feasible because you'd need reward challenges each round

It actually happens pretty frequently, even. Just in the last year it happened in those games, and very heavily (three times) in #2016.

It was great in Bands, the reward that you could have gotten was a Vacation item :P If only it was used.

It would have been feasable in Medevac! The main reason rewards aren't feasible imo isn't having to make extra challenges, though that's a huge part, it's that you either give away a dozen double votes or need something else to refill, because online Survivor players don't get hungry or swayed by monetary awards.

You don't reeeeeeeeally need clones for this.

Just run, like...Survivor: Everyone Is Shadoweh or whatever, and then at the end, instead of having the jury vote based on perceived skill/alliances/ability not to piss off jury members, insist that everyone vote as objectively as possible on which player made the best Shadoweh.

shadoweh's never won though so the real best shadoweh is actually 5th place. and playing an idol correctly is instant death.

WORST TWIST: the jury doesn't have to vote for someone who survived to FTC, the jury can vote for whoever the hell they want.
