Survivor : Phillippines in HD September 19 CBS - Page 4

post #91 of 586
Thread Starter 
I felt Roxy was going home without a doubt .. her rants seemed to me, anyway, to be almost a jealousy toward Angie .. it seemed obvious that even in the short time so far, there was some deep seated anger almost .. and all that coming from a girl that wears her Christianity on her sleeve .. Roxy was not cut out for Survivor ..

CBS has entitled the last episode: "Don't be blinded by the headlights." That is so bad, but so true.

it's always interesting to see character traits come out that maybe you didn't expect. at first roxy seemed fairly sweet but it turned out she had a mean green streak. and how about abi? she's all buddy buddy with rc until she sees rc chatting it up with skupin...then she goes paranoid schizophrenic on her. i wouldn't want to be in an alliance with her.

By the look on RC's face, I think she was thinking the same thing.  Time to move on to Plan B.

That was some hood rat nonsense from abi or whatever her name is. I see her going down in flames.

The older woman on Angie's tribe (can't recall her name) had made a comment to Russell about Malcolm being "blinded by the headlights".... biggrin.gif

Really interesting editing dynamic this season. Not very many OTTP players looking to be camera hogs. Penner's tribe is mostly invisible except for Kent and Penner. Skupin's tribe has an interesting pair in the two girls. The other two guys are hardly there. Russell's tribe is busy going bye bye but at least we see them.
I don't mind Penner getting the idol, I'm sure he knows he is marked for elimination and he can be amusing at times especially when he is sticking it to Probst.
I hope they let the three tribes play out to the merge even if it means Russell's tribe gets eliminated.

It was obvious Roxi was going as soon as you saw how heavy-handed the editors edited the tribal council to make it look like Jeff was raking the blond over the coals and she was in real danger.

My wife pointed out to me (and I have to agree with her!) that Roxy is a dead ringer for JAR-JAR BINKS. And, as we all know, no one likes Jar-Jar.

The blue team looks pretty hopeless at this point. Angie and the sex therapist are both useless in the challenges. And I haven't really seem much out of Malcolm too. Russel is the only one that seems to be putting in any effort. And he's next up on the chopping block since the other three have tighter alliances.

The only thing they have going for them is that they don't have to win, they just need to not finish last.

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".

Yes...again we are intentionally misled to believe one thing and then at tribal we see something different. Then we wonder why? Everything we were showed led to the belief that angie was going. More importantly it makes sense, but we aren't seeing how other tribes members perceive Roxy. Having seen Russell vote for her was a shock, unless he felt and was convinced like others that she was smart, controlling and a true threat. And I know the rest of her tribe were a bit freaked out by her "speaking in tongues", which may have put enough fear in them to not trust what she may do or how she may react... Welcome to the game.

I'm already thoroughly annoyed with those stupid Twitter hashtag things. Seriously, do we need that crap popping up during the show? Oh look it's #survivormeltdown. rolleyes.gif

Here's a Twitter hashtag for ya that they should have put up.

The dopey looking young blonde guy on Penner's tribe.
He seriously has not said one single word in two episodes.

It was obvious to me when Roxi was scrambling at camp and the blonde didin't have a care in the world (except, I guess in hindsight, cookies).

This is getting annoying not everyone gives a .... about the social networks and should not have to put with such on our screens, there is already enough spam on screen as it is.

Add me to the Twitter nonsense on screen .. absolute BS .. and what's the point anyway .. ?? Somebodies thinking that it's somehow hip .. ?? How many people actually sit there and watch a Twitter feed and add to it during the show .. ??

One way or another TV will be going interactive. Either to replace revenues or ride alone with those not too old...

Millions of multitaskers already tinker with their tablets and smartphones while watching TV. More than four out of 10 (42%) of tablet owners -- and nearly as many smartphone owners (39%) -- use them daily while watching TV, according to Nielsen.

If TV needs to be interactive, that's fine .. just give those of us that don't want it the ability to opt out .. that's interactive ..

And Denise I think. She was keeping warm with Russell and Roxy was the fifth wheel freezing her butt off.

Heck, I can hardly stay w/ it live. Not sure I would have even that much interest several years down the road.

I would expect some "way to go" for my prediction! Or some hint that I have inside info from a cast member! smile.gifsmile.gif

So far. Most boring Survivor ever.
post #117 of 586
I loved how the two girls complained about being put on puzzles during the first challenge then come to the second challenge and prove in second challenge they are not really good at anything. One thing I was confused about is why didn't Malcom and Russel run the last? Was there a rule that the same person could not run back to back legs?

Let's face it, Russell's team is toast if the challenges require physical or mental prowess. eek.gif

Anything can happen! The other teams can give up immunity 2-3 times to vote their members out (Lisa, Jonathan, ....)! wink.gif
