I like both of the remaining players on the Loser tribe, hope they make it through the next challenge somehow. And I'm glad Russell is gone already, he was fucking irritating the first time around and still is.

About damn time they got rid of Russel. Too bad so many potentially good players had to leave before the realized what a dead albatross Russel was.

Yeah, the puzzle fixation the last couple of seasons has been a bit tiresome.

Next person voted of Survivor...


Dawson.

It didn't seem she did much to verify that it wasn't her going after they lost the challenge. And her provoking the ex-baseball player didn't help.

I'm glad Denise is doing so well in her hew tribe. She's a tough lady and alligning with the boys is a good move, even if she is the fourth wheel. Malcom is a good player too, but he seems to be clueless of what is happening in his new tribe, although it is early still.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Dawson was stupid with the way she handled the Jeff Kent information. Either play the "he's a wealthy ex-baseball player" card and let everyone in on it so they'll possibly turn against him because they don't want a millionaire to win another million, or keep it to yourself. Teasing him about it but not letting anyone else in on the joke just pisses him off and makes him want to get rid of her to protect his secret.

Is she? I can see Penner and Jeff ditching Carter and keeping Denise if they have to make a choice and Jeff would probably consider an alliance with Denise to get rid of Penner, he already had his weirs four fingered handshake speech, he doesn't consider Penner a long term ally, I think Denise is in a good position right now.

I still think it's funny how Lisa went from Tandang's obvious first boot to sitting save in swing vote land between the fighting factions of the former alliance of four. She seems to be smart and observes her tribe, she is probably already planning to turn on Peter before he turns on her.

Yeah Dawson was frustratingly dumb. Just get it out there to shake things up or something. The last thing you want to do is poke at him until he has you voted out. Lame.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Especially since she thought there was at least the possibility that she might be at risk in this tribal (according to one of her interviews). Why not shake things up at that point to distract people before the vote?

Agree with others that Dawson misused her knowledge about Jeff Kent's background. She would have been better off using the info to blackmail him instead of just teasing him with it. She could have pulled him aside and told him to use his influence to keep her or she would spill the beans on her way out. It may not have worked, but at least she'd go down swinging.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

What a great tribal, one of the best I've seen. Was hoping it'd be Pete but I'm ok with Jeff. Why did Penner vote Abby? And how stupid is Abby, revealing she has the idol. That chick is just nutters. Facts of Life seems to be stepping up her game, but I think she's not being so smart about it.

Good season so far!

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

Yeah, I'm really enjoying this season. Once the dead weight on Matsing got cut off things really started to pick up. It was actually Penner who voted for Abi, which didn't make a lot of sense to me. But maybe he knew Jeff was in trouble and wanted to get rid of him since Jeff had been gunning for him forever. I noticed that Skupin also stuck with Tandang and voted for Jeff instead of joining the Kalabaw alliance and voting for Abi. That was a surprise to me, since he's been on the outs in Tandang since early on.

Jeff Kent going into scowling bitter 1 percent always wanting more mode in his exit interview...

And great timing with Obama.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

I enjoyed it quite a bit as well. I couldn't stand Jeff, was glad to see him go. I too was surprised about Penner voting for Abi, and Skupin voting for Jeff. I can't tell if they did this purposefully to make sure Jeff went home, or if Skupin really is with his old tribe and Penner was just left out of the loop on everything. The various alliances discussed at tribal council were a mess to figure out. I'm sure we'll get the real story on the next episode.

fuckingn lol at Abi looking around what the fuck's going on the way she did.

I'm glad Penner survived, although he clearly won't win the season.
