There are hundreds of posts all over the Internet saying this but I don't think he sounds anything like nasal Alan Alda.

No, referring to recently how they all were like Penner has to go, Penner has to go, Penner, who is Penner? He really convinced them to come to his side and tore up that alliance, he seems good at getting on people's good sides.

I'm actually voting for the short muscular woman. She is a powerhouse in challenges, I hope she wins actually.

Its symptoms range from "none" (most common) to "death" (least common). Most people who get sick with it have typical flu-like symptoms which go on for longer than typical flu.

I have thought this since the very first time I heard him speak on his first Survivor episode!

I like Denise .. she puts it all out on a challenge and seems to be playing a good social game as well .. not really ruffling any feathers, not appearing as a threat .. if she can make it to final tribal and continues to play it like she is, she would have a very good shot at the win .. unfortunately, those same qualities may put a target on her at some point ..

He does still have blisters from that horrific sunburn tho. frown.gif

I guess you missed the part where Abi hit him in the head with a coconut in the last episode. biggrin.gif

While they did not show any blood, I think if they showed every time Mike bled, they'd have to run an extra episode.

it is not the sign of a power player that he had no idea how the vote was going and was not in the loop even with his own "side". A 5-5 vote would have meant that Pete might have left afterall. Penner got sparred because he had immunity btw.

It had as much if not more to do with shocking the other alliance as it did with Abi having the idol. Voting for Artis was a blindside that sent Abi(mainly Abi) and Pete a message....your done and its just a matter of time. Artis was a bigger threat moving forward...Abi would be wash as she probably won't win a million based on attitude and complete failure to actually understand the game and what is actually going on..for example..accusing RC when it was Pete.

Artis was not a threat at Final Tribal either, no one liked him either. They couldn't take any chance with Abi's idol yet or that she was give to Pete. That was legit.

I was expecting a review episode being the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and although they have actually been pretty good with lots of new footage and behind the scenes views, I was pleasantly surprised to have a new episode tonight.

Abi sure got her comeuppance tonight, poor thing.

I cant remember Jeff ever being so hard on someone as the comment he made to Abi. But as I said in another post, she is clueless.

As the saying goes... She can dish it out, but she sure can't take it . . .
post #378 of 586
As Jeff tried to point out to her, and Denise tried to explain, I think some of her problem is cultural.

Having said that, has no one ever explained to her what "conversation" is? She seems to think that any ideas not originating in her head are false.

Bluntly put, The woman needs to SHUT THE HELL UP and listen once in a while.
post #379 of 586
I love what they've done with the music during tribal. Oh yeah... the game. Rooting for Malcolm to pull this one out.
post #380 of 586
I really hope that Abi gets the boot next. She lives in her own little universe and everyone are just satellites around her. Even when Lisa was trying to explain how the other faction made her feel better and welcome, Abi still treated her like crap instead of trying to mend fences. She probably truly believed she deserved to go on the reward trip even though she almost blew it for her team in one of the few challenges she actually competed in.

A very interesting season even though they had returning players. Russell had too high a regard for himself and was not the "leader" that he thought he was. I don't mind seeing Penner or Skupin take the win. I also like Malcolm and Denise. Even though Lisa has been in the mix lately, I don't think she'll win unless she makes a huge power move and cuts out the mini-breakdowns she keeps having. Carter is still a no-show despite the fact he won immunity last time. There hasn't been a season in a while where I had more than one or two people that I wanted to win.

I think it is more "kids of the wealthy" syndrome. I used to go to Brazil regularly on business, and my Portuguese, now rusty, used to be semi-fluent. I know many warm, considerate, nice Brazilians. However, there is a wider class separation between rich and poor than we are used too, and some of the privileged can feel VERY privileged. The kids more so than their parents. But we see the same cluelessness in our Hollywood celebrities.

Personally, I think it would be funny if by some twist of fate Abi wins immunity next week. It will never happen, but I'd love to see the look on the other's faces if she did.

She got a dose of something she badly needed. I don't feel bad for her in the least.

I really did not like MuscularWoman's comment about not wanting Abi at the final, because it's not the right game to play,
& it's like "bringing someone to a poker game who never played before, just so you can take their money"...

I lost respect for her... I always hate when there are morons who self destruct, who suddenly decide they are "playing the moral & correct game", & decide "Who deserves" to be with them in the finals, instead of who to bring so they can actually win ....
The correct analogy would actually be, "You show up to a poker game, & one of the other players who also already signed up & is seated across your table, can't really play well... It is correct to play them & take their money .. "
For goodness sakes, your on a TV game show where the object is to outlast, make it to the end, & be in best position to win the $1 mill ... & if bringing Abi is a high chance ..........

Whatever. She came up with the analogy on the fly.

I can't fault anyone if the whole non-Pete-and-Abi alliance is in agreement to get rid of Abi.

I don't think there is any particular right way to play ..

As well, some players do actually try to play a game based on their own belief .. Denise is certainly not a moron .. as opposed to Abi, who is a moron ....

Barring some really quirky thing happening, I'm thinking Denise and Malcom have the best shot but I'm usually wrong. eek.gif

Well, two issues:
*Abi is hyper-annoying. Putting up with her for two more weeks to use her as the goat might be too much.
*Abi has no idea when to shut up and even with the perfect goat, you have to be next to her at Final to benefit. With Abi's yapping, there is a high risk of her screwing up your conniving to get yourself and your pet goat to Final.

I can see the option of getting rid of the crazy girl. I would say Abi led her alliance in being mean and untrustworthy towards Lisa. Do you really want an alliance with her, and two weeks of having to guard your goat.

I'm surprised Denise jumped into the the Abi bash. I really don't see how there was anything to gain by piling on. But I guess Abi is just so irritating that Denise finally had to scratch the itch.
post #390 of 586
I did not hear it as piling on, although obviously Abi did. To me it seemed like Denise was illegitimately trying to explain to her, but Abi would NOT SHUT UP long enough to hear her.
