  1. I mght be wrong, but when you said “Tai and Parvati used two idols on the same Tribal Council”, didn’t Malcolm use two on Fans vs Favorites?

    • Technically Eddie used the second idol, but if you want to argue semantics like that, then TECHNICALLY Tai’s the first one to play two idols, because Parvati gave her idols to Sandra and Jerri, and THEY played them.

      • By your logic, Steven, either all of of them (Parvati, Malcolm, Tai) should be included, or just Tai.

        • That’s my point. I feel like all three of them should be included, because Malcolm did the same thing that Parvati did, yet he’s not included in the list.

  2. You’re wrong about tai bing the second person to use 2 idols, Malcom did in fans vs favorites 2 when former FBI agent Phillip Sheppard was voted out

  3. It can definitely be argued the Caramoan Phillip boot was a double idol play by Malcolm, even though he gave idol #2 to Eddie before the vote.
