Dalton Ross has been doing extended reviews of the show for years. He often gets to go to the island for a day or two before filming starts to see the layout. He also interviews Probst each week after episodes air. http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/10/03/su...t-colton-quit/
He's not gone yet! He has a very good chance of getting back into the game. I can only imagine that was an awkward first night at Redemption Island, though. I thought it was very clever of Monica, what she did with the clue. And that was a great tribal council. If things keep going that way for the dwindling tribe, they're going to have to do something soon -- either a merge or a random reshuffling of the tribes.
Monica was the fourth to be voted out from One World, so she didn't have much of a chance to make an impression. Colton blindsided her. She did sneak into the other camp and steal an ember to make fire, so there's that.
I missed the first week. The idea of family members competing is... interesting. I was sad to see Rupert go so fast, though.
Can you believe Colton wussed out again?! Sheesh!
I can't imagine that first night on RI with Brad and Candace!
