    Ryan claimed that he followed Ben all day the last time. The problem was that Ben had already found the idol while everbody else was sleeping.

    Yeah, there sure wasn't much said. I notice that there wasn't the same fuss made over Chrissy's losing her job as there was over the lunch lady from the China season losing hers (probably because they found out she lied about it).

    As I said, they're not allowed to change the rules in mid-game (those are part of the regulations for all American game shows, due to the shenanigans during the 1950s, when some shows were rigged to favor certain contestants). However, I'm glad they dropped the requirement to beg for money, since that was so demeaning and undignified... and what would they have done if the team just wasn't getting anywhere?

    She sued Mark Burnett (the producer), accusing him of orchestrating her ouster. They eventually settled out of court.

    Some went looking for idols. Ryan did, although he found the advantage that he gave to Chrissy (because his tribe won the challenge and it was only usable during the first tribal council).

    I give him credit for being persistent in his search for idols. I don't give him credit for his jerk behavior, which is a huge part of why the others wanted him out.

    This makes me wonder how he could have found them. Do the producers provide a night light everywhere now? Did he tell a camera person to follow along and give him light?

    I think he found that last idol just as the sun was beginning to rise, but it was hard to tell. Most of his searching was probably done as the sun was coming up and before the others woke up and/or began the day. He indicated that he was searching while others were watching the sunrise (or was it sunset?).

    Of course, the moon could have been particularly bright those nights...Did he have a full moon and no clouds? And the camera lights are probably a good bet too. They needed to at least get film of him, so that's going to provide a bit of a light source as they're following him around.

    His searching in the middle of the night could have been directly related to his PTSD. The nightmares can make it hard to sleep.

    I don't remember Ben being too much of a jerk. Interesting how we watch the same things and see people totally differently.
