I was wondering if maybe they have one big tribe for the first two eliminations, then divide the remaining 16 into two individual tribes. I just hope MB comes up with something unique this season. Or that the contestants make the show interesting. As we've seen in the past, sometimes MB doesn't need to throw any twists in to keep it interesting, they do it themselves.
I remember for ASS, it was rumored that because there were two extra contestants, some TC would have two people being voted off. That never happened, but maybe that's what's going to happen this season. This came from E! (who also mentioned The Apprentice having 18 contestants for it's next season, too) so I guess I'll wait to decide whether this is a good thing or a bad thing when/if it gets confirmed.
