    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!

    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... :guffaw:

    And great timing with Obama.

    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. :lol:

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

    Kinda rolled my eyes when Lisa still voted with Tandang after all the grief she's taken from them and especially after Abi straight up said she didn't trust her. :rolleyes:

    Thank goodness Skupin voted with the non-Tandangs and broke up that Abi/Pete/Artis alliance. I'm still rooting for either Denise or Malcolm to win this thing, which would be hilarious to see after they got stuck on one of the worst tribes ever. :lol:

    I really like Penner. He seems like a great guy. Can't see him winning unfortunately. Though he doesn't seem to garner the hate the way Skupins does. Abbey just needs to be gone. I don't know how such unpleasant people always make it so far on these shows.

    was shocked to see how lisa voted. What is she thinking?

    I want to see Denise or Malcolm to win as well.

    Poor Artis, dumped off the show like that after getting zero screen time from the edit all season long! On the bright side I won't exactly be crying over the rest of his alliance.

    The Facts of Life chick is a spineless loser.

    I'm cheering for the returnees at this point.

    Because the good players want to take those unlikeable people with them to the end. It's easier to garner votes from the jury over people like Abi.

    I think Jeff put truth serum in the water. These people can't keep secrets for more than thirty seconds without blurting them out to the world. I keep expecting one of them to randomly admit to an unsolved murder during tribal.

    That was a great roasting of Abby at tribal. Loved every second of it. My wife wants to beat her up.

    I don't hate Abi, but she's really not a very intelligent person.

    And I can't help thinking maybe it would've been an intersting move for Penner or Skupin to vote Malcolm. They would've gotten rid of both idols, and a very strong player, and kept one who's no threat whatsoever for the final prize. Ideally they would've done it without telling anybody, even Abi and Pete...

    But apparently Abi is way too obnoxious for anyone to consider that. And it was quite satisfying to see Pete get voted off after declaring himself "smart". ;)

    I kind of felt sorry for Abby. Just a tiny bit. But Jeff was almost forcing them to talk about her. I think they should have brought up how mean she was rather than just rude.

    I liked the one comparison of taking unwinnable people to the finale is like taking someone who can't play poker to a poker game so you can take their money. It's a better game if strong people go to the finale

    ugh. She's still there. I was freaking out thinking Denise was going home.

    What's wrong with Abby? I was hoping it was Denise, Penner works too, though.

    I wonder what her reaction is to watching herself on the show.

    She is horrid.

    Malcolm and Denise, the left-overs from the little tribe that couldn't might pull the whole game off. Nice. Shame to see Penner go, but I can't wait to see him at the final.

    The thing is, Abi (not "Abby") might stick around just because she has absolutely zero chance of winning the jury vote at the final tribal council. At this point, you really do need to target the likeable players, not the obnoxious one who is getting on everyone's last nerve.

    Of course, that means putting up with Abi for another ten days or so . . . which may be more than some people are capable of!

    I know that is a common tactic, but I hate it. There are just people on the show I'd rather be watching then her.
