What does Everyone Think about this

by on Jan.16, 2012, under Entertainment

“How long will it take to talk with the local merchants? Who will have to go into town and decide on what items they can purchase? Will WE will have to make sure all things are clearly priced?”

“Well, yeah. We’re responsible for the challenge.”

“Let’s just make them remember numbers.”

Mark Burnett, if you’re reading this, you need to hire me as a “What the people will enjoy watching” consultant. Obviously those you’re paying to do this have more important things to do with their time.

Ken and Clay move on to the second part where they must follow compass directions while also taking the appropriate Thai-number of steps. This part totally contradicted what I just theorized: it had to take forever to set up this challenge. They buried roughly 300 hundred (yes, I counted them) signs in little mounds of sand.

Ken and Jake held a sign indicating a certain number of steps to take in a specific direction (North, East, West, or South), at which point they’ll uncover the pile to get the next sign. If they uncover the wrong pile, they must start again where they left off.

The numbers are written in Thai (but the English to Thai conversion sign was left up in case they forgot). A large compass sat next to the number key. Jeff reminded them that the ocean was WEST.

Ok, so it might be a little confusing to get your bearings. What we did NOT hear Jeff say was that the directions were also clearly marked at the edges of the challenge area. All they had to do was look at the English-Thai conversion chart, then simply walk the appropriate number of piles in the direction clearly labeled on the ground in front of them. Also, the flags were blue (Ken) and yellow (Clay). So, if either of them messed up, there was a good chance they’d end up at the other guy’s flag.
