If so Im surprised because usually the edits are way over the top with everything blurred out.

I missed the wardrobe malfunction somehow .. biggrin.gif

For the last few seasons, I've commented on the clothing .. used to, they'd wear the same thing till it was practically falling off .. apparently, more clothing is allowed ..

And for you long time fans .. I seem to remember a time when players were allowed to bring a "personal luxury item" .. ??

Didn't somebody bring a guitar way back when .. ??

I'm looking forward to the game. Though once again, I seem to be seeing the same thing over and over again. Guy one makes a huge mistake, basically costs immunity. Guy two falls on his sword. Guy one survives tribal. Ugh!

I watched the show on DVR last night, read the forum and was primed for the "slip".....I didn't see it either.

I think we're being played with deception editing again.

I think Zane was actually doomed from the moment he made that crack about having alliances with everyone on the beach. I think they edited out all the plotting against Zane to make it look like Russell was in jeopardy while it was Zane all the way.

most likely .. but I don't think many believed Russell was going home .. and, as with many players, Zane was drinking his own Kool Aid ..

Zane had an interesting strategy. Of course to use that strategy you either have to prove your worth or the other choice is some one people really dislike. If you have haven't really proven yourself then the other guy has to be hated. We will never know if he would have been the choice due to his performance anyway.

Either way, back to the gameplay discussion. Who do you think will be the first to figure out that the symbol on top of the rice box is actually the immunity idol?

Pretty obvious to me too! smile.gif
Hard to say who will find it. Probably Jonathan or Lisa.

The sad part is, if I remember right, the clue said something about plain sight ..

I don't know about that.  Blair Warner always got good grades at Eastland Academy.

Cookies?

I guess I should have felt bad for her instead of laughing, but....

Why did Penner have to find the Immunity Idol? I can't stand him or Russel. As for Blair, I wish she would just express her feelings to her tribe so they will understand her situation and not think the worst of her (that she's out looking for the idol). She seemed pretty perky during the challenge.

Yea, suprisingly Blair seems very socially awkward...I was really feeling bad for her last night.

Agreed her best step moving forward would be to open up to the tribe....

This, she helped direct her tribe to the win, I didn't know Naionka had a little sister on this season...wink.gif

no it didn't. angie needs a crash course on survivor game play. if she had said "cookies(pause).........but seriously we have to start working together...." or something like that it would've come off much better. and her and malcolm needed to do something about de-fusing the cuddling situation.

She's a kid that may have got cast because she looks great, I don't know .. the young players like her always seem to say or do something stupid ..

I doubt if anything can be done now to de-fuse the percieved romantic connection .. unless one of them wants to throw the other under the bus at a tribal .. I was hoping these guys would not end up at their second tribal in a row .. tribes on the downhill slide now ..

i wonder how long they will stay with 3 tribes. especially with the blue tribe already losing two people. if they wanted, they could disband that tribe and add two people to the red and yellow tribes.

That's what they should do. I'd love to see Russel and Penner on the same tribe. Speaking of Penner, how long will it be before the other idiots notice something is missing from the top of the box.

In Penner's case, I have to admit I like him better here than his first time.  His interview clearly showed he's not as full of himself as before and admitted that thinking you've got a great plan and having it work out are different and not at all guaranteed.  He's still a bit much at times, but also a bit more self effacing.  Russell on the other hand is a full blown jerk and has few saving graces.  As for the cuddling with Cookie girl, she may be dumb but she sure is hot.

It is not surprising to me that she is socially awkward. A child actor that did not attend "normal" schools...

Yes, that's what I was trying to say... the perception from her tribe members is that she's looking for the idol but I think she's so introverted she just wants to be alone.

So...anyone else think this was a case of total "mis-direction" editing? Obviously, they wanted us to think Angie was going...I didn't see any way Russel would be swayed to vote for Roxy, yet in the end EVERYONE voted for her (except Roxy). Must be there was no way to edit the footage enough to show some controversy, but somehow Russel (and the sex therapist) got convinced the opposite way than shown the "home audience".

Exactly.  And as she said in her confessional ... she 'hides' behind her roles when she's acting.    Well ... why not join the rest of the contestants and 'act' like you are somebody they can trust, like, depend upon, etc.   Survivor is the ultimate acting role.   At this point, she should take Mike's advice and tell everybody about her acting past.

I didn't think it was a mis-direction at all.   I think they edited to show that Denise was the deciding vote and she had a tough decision on her hands.  She said she was caught between two alliances.     Keep Angie and worry about the couple alliance, or keep Roxy and worry about her erratic behavior and lack of effort in challenges (plus she clearly had a problem with Roxy's religious stuff).  

 

At the end of the day, if Denise tells Russell she's voting for Roxy, there is no reason for him to vote for Angie.  His vote doesn't matter and it would only anger Angie (and Malcolm).     That doesn't mean he wanted to vote Roxy out from the get-go, it just means Denise filled him in on her decision at some point before Tribal.  And the never show us those conversations for obvious reasons.

I hope the cookie comment is just a ploy. Either way, I'd gladly share milk and cookies w/her.
