Erik even knows he's in an alliance with Malcolm. The guy doesn't appear to be all that bright.
He was nominated for Dumbest Move in Survivor History for a reason.
And he's still doing whatever the pretty woman tells him.

I bet if he had an idol, Andrea and Brenda could convince him to give it up again.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

The high point of the season so far has to be Cochran's reaction to the 'brodown'.

'You think that appeals to me, you numbskulls?'

Cochran's definitely in a great position right now. Nobody is targeting him and he's the first person everybody seems to go to with any new information they have.

This season was lame pre-merge, but it's one of the more interesting post-merge seasons we've had in a while. The worst post-merges are when one alliance just easily votes out another. I love the way Malcolm got Reynold to play his idol on him.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

The Dawn meltdown was a little bit of a letdown, she dropped her retainer, then she needed to sleep.

Malcolm and friends with the immunity forcefield was pretty great. I loved the way they sprang it before the vote. But, I don't know if out and out targeting Phillip like that was the way to go. I think they should have put their votes up for auction so to speak, let it be known they are open to a voting alliance. They gave Phillip the opportunity to fall on his sword and he sort of did. I'm not sure if Phillip actually sacrificed himself for the alliance's cohesion, or if he just didn't think it through and understand that he would be out.

I hope next week's wheeling and dealing actually goes somewhere for entertainment's sake.

Well well well...

I thought Malcolm and Eddie might gamble, but again they made the right call.

And good riddance to fucking Phillip.

The Three Amigos probably could have made a better strategic move than outright admitting they were voting for Phillip, but I'm just so glad Phillip is gone that I don't even care.

Yep. Not only did they miss an opportunity to sway others to their side, but they gave Phillip the opportunity to say he sacrificed himself for his idiotic Stealth Alliance. And no doubt Phillip will spin it that way at the reunion show.

So Erik finally joined up with the the other guys, voting for "Fillip"- I wonder if he's gonna flip or if he was just confused.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

I've been thinking about it, but I don't really know how exactly Malcolm could have played it differently and achieved a better outcome, especially if his goal really was to get rid of Phillip.

He had to stir the pot, keeping the second idol hidden wouldn't have done anything to change the 7 splitting the vote. Of course if he'd known about Erik's vote, he could saved the idol, but that's hindsight.

I don't think "selling the vote" would've worked. He could have threatened Andrea or something for example, but I don't think anyone would have agreed on any deal in the open there.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

Great Tribal, in fact that's 3 very good Tribals in a row now. Post-merge this has been one of the better Survivors in recent memory.

So glad Fillup is gone. Great move by Malcolm in terms of cutting the head off the snake, hopefully everyone goes scrambling now that they don't have Phillip bullying them into making decisions.

Dawn has serious issues. She's been so tightly wound up her whole life as soon as she loses control she completley loses her shit. Grow up, woman.

Brenda is so smoking hot.

I don't think eric has the slightest clue as to what he's doing.

Cochrane for the win! Probably won't happen though.

Man I hope Fillup loses his shit when he questions the final 3.

Oh good grief. The very first lines:

Having the opportunity to meet Phillip Sheppard, The Specialist, at a past charity event was truly an honor. He is a man full of adventure, intelligence, and charisma, with a charm and personality that feels contagious.
I can't go on. Really, I'm laughing so hard, I'm having a little trouble breathing!

Oh wow. And reading the description, it sounds like he's exactly describing his experience with Survivor. He failed the first "39 day mission" and was offered a huge check to come back for a second one. He asked for help from his friend the "former Israeli Secret Service member" (aka Boston Rob), to endure his second mission of betrayal and turncoats.

My favorite part is the reviews. One person says:

"I haven't read a book like this in years and all I could hear when I read it was the narrator from "Casablanca" in my head! My favorite line? "his blood stained tongue stuck out too, like a 'take a number' meat market pull tab." Brilliant!!!!!"

That qouted line sounds like something that would be entered in the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. If the rest of the book is written that bad, I may just buy it for laughs.

And give "fillup" your hard-earned money?

I had the most brilliant idea. I love listening to Cochran's comments on what is going on. Jeff Probst should have him do a debrief on his show after every episode on upcoming seasons.
