Carter's face is shaped like one of those beaten up Corona straw hats you get in Mexico.

Interestingly, Carter shops in my store and has breakfast with his family in it every Sunday after church.
Does his boyfriend join them?

It's always weird reading things like that, although I know america is a very religious country I'm never able to fully grasp that entire families actually go to church every sunday.

His family is also usually with a much larger group. I've never had much interaction with him beyond passing employee/customer pleasantries.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Curious. They're down to five people. That usually is what they have for the finale ... in the first hour, two get voted out, they spend 15 minutes reminding themselves how awesome the people who were voted out were, a few minutes with their feast and burning camp, then the last half hour getting grilled by the jury. Then during the reunion, announce the winner.

But this time, they're not. There is another episode next Wednesday, which means getting down to four for the two-hour finale, and Probst has already said they are doing a final 3 as usual, so how are they going to pad out the time in the finale next Sunday?

What I would love to be the case is that they spend more time on the reunion portion of the finale, which seems to have 10 minute commercial breaks every 5 minutes. But I don't see that happening.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

all that scheming and then no one but Abi votes for Denise.

I'm still rooting for a Denise or Malcolm win. They have dominated the game.

I assumed all that scheming was in regards to the next tribal council. Too risky to go after Denise this time since it would give Abi too much power. Had they kept Abi in the final four, I think the other three would have been too worried about each other making deals with her.

Part of me wanted Abi to make it to the final 3 just so I could see how unbelievably shitty her speech to the jury would be, followed by her being eviscerated by said jury.

I dislike Lisa more and more every episode.

My choice would be Malcolm or Denise, but I have to admit Scupin is growing on me. The guy's an idiot but endearing in a strange sort of way.

There was also the thought that Denise stood a better chance of beating Malcom the final immunity challenge, giving the others a better chance to vote him out . . . .

Prediction: Penner will drop the "Facts of Life" card during the final T.C. This will be bad news for Lisa, who will have to go on the defensive to convince the jury that (1) she's not a rich Hollywood TV star, and (2) that she hasn't been "dishonest" about it the whole game.

To be fair, she never lied about her "former teen star" past, but could still be a problem. We all know how those final Tribal Councils can turn into orgies of hypocritical self-righteousness in which sore losers (who were perfectly fine with the plotting and scheming while they were in the game) suddenly get on their high horses about "playing with integrity" and so on.

I can see somebody giving Lisa a bad time about not coming clean about her past . . . .

I don't think Penner is going to do that

I can't believe anyone got on a helicopter with him. The guy is an accident magnet. I mean, he managed to get head-butted by a whale shark, almost burned in a fire again, and OD'd on soda all in one episode.

I know, right? Watching Scupin reminds me of Crispin Glover's character in Hot Tub Time Machine where the guys are waiting to see how he loses his arm.
