Here is a plea from me to Probst. Let’s see a throwback auction in an upcoming season. No advantages, no love letters, nothing but food. While re-watching Season 2 Australia with my daughters this week (I re-watch all the Seasons to share with my youngest who is now addicted, but also to study the game) I enjoyed the simple food auction. All the players were able to pool their money allowing alliances to be revealed, new connections to be made, and something as simple as peanut butter and chocolate that brought Elizabeth Hasselbeck to tears. Producers would have to make it clear prior to the start that it is food and only food. The simple joy of watching Erik Reichenbach pay $40 to lick Cirie Field’s fingers….Priceless!
