Well, Hitler swayed and entire country, so I suppose Spencer and his sales pitch could have swayed some jury folks .. I tend to think not .. they had made their choice by the time they got to Final .. the jury has more than ample time to cuss and discuss / work out their issues, etc prior to the Vote .. much like a jury in real life ..

I don't think Asians are any smarter than anyone else .. they just tend to work at it harder and have parents that push them hard ..

As opposed to the "Let's Give Everyone a Trophy Even if They Did Not Earn It" philosophy .. wink.gif

From what I understand, Woo is of South Korean lineage ..

And, he also was on a TV show a couple years ago ..

Probst Thoughts .. and apparently the "Rites of Passage Ritual" is gone for good ..

I am in the minority but I liked the Rites of passage segment, often you'd get a nugget or interesting commentary on a fallen warrior that gives you a little extra insight of what a finalist thought of them. I preferred it to the pre-Reunion Reunion segments and interviews with kids, injured military, etc, that is for sure. They do enough of that at the Reunion, don't fill up the final episode with that.

Yeah, interesting that starting with only 18 contestants and having Lindsey quit (she wasn't even invited to the Reunion I imagine) forced their hand. It was solely a numbers thing.

I think Woo brought his A game to final tribal. While Tony who was not terrible came off as defensive and apologetic at tribal. I think Woo made a credible case for people who were looking to vote against Tony rather then for Woo. While Woo was no where near the player that Spencer or Tony was during this season. He has a better Survivor "resume" then some Survivor winners I can think of like Sandra (both seasons), Amber, Natalie and Tina.Woo did win two individual immunitys including the most important final immunity, he was in with Tony on two of the blindsides and according to Tony it was Woo who wanted to vote out Trish. He also took Tony to the end instead of the obvious goat Kass. So the jury voting for Woo might not have been as difficult as some think. I think that's why Spencer stepped in to trash Woo and plead Tony's case. There's a video at youtube of Spencer saying how important it is to him that the right person win this season of Survivor and that person according to Spencer is definently not Woo.

Yes, there's a stereotype that Asians are very smart. But we're talking booksmarts, not streetsmarts. Woo seemed to be intelligent enough, but when it came to him playing the game, he couldn't figure out how to upset people and win.

That is my point. Rsambuca has a good theory.

It’s not important. I think Rsambuca is right.

WOW, repeating over and over my mistake. For what I apologized repeatedly more than 3 times. Yes, when someone says something I listen, I think, and if he is right I have the courage to admit it. What about you?

I overreacted, my bad. My point stands. And the answer is probably what Rsambuca said.
It doesn’t hurt the integrity of the show. It doesn’t mean it is rigged.

Stupid.

If you move the blank spot, don’t you have to move a tile also? Remember, the tiles are numbered. Then you have to recalculate the formula. As long as you don’t make “illegal” moves, the result of the formula will remain the same. Think about it.

It’s good to know that the reason you can’t solve a puzzle is not because you are stupid! smile.gif

I guess Woo could have asked a little kid what to do! tongue.gif

Now he can continue stealing things with integrity.


I really hope they won’t permit stealing clues next season.

Blood vs Water 2! Let’s see if they finally understand its strategy this time!

Really enjoyed this season and loved the F2, even though there was a chance it could have been the Kass/Woo nightmare. I haven't seen any exit interviews or day after videos so it is hard to judge how much Tony took advantage of Woo's mindset and how much it was Woo just blundering. It reminded me a little of Tom talking a younger man In into quitting the F3 challenge in Palau. Experience over youth. Personally I don't think Spencers speech did much to sway the jury. He was the audience surrogate there. At any rate one of the best ever and I'm sure we'll see at least three of these players again.

No it wasn't there this season. I wonder if Sprint pulled their sponsorship because usually they get messages from home on a Sprint phone and they are the ones that sponsor the fan favorite. Spencer would have been a lock to have gotten that.
