This week was really a bland Episode, IMO .. Jeremy getting the boot was no surprise .. his mouth pretty much sealed his Fate, especially at Tribal .. I still would have lobbied for Natalie to get booted, if for no other reason than she's not going to help much with anything .. and, I just don't like her .. I don't know how anyone could work for her ..

Tribe Swap up coming .. ??

Pre-Merge always seems more bland than Post-Merge ..

They’re doing the merge too soon these days. As a player, I’d be upset because you don’t have enough time to solidify an alliance before things are shuffled. And then the whole DvG doesn’t make sense anymore.

Yep, there is that ..

I don't think Alliances mean as much as they used to .. most Players these days are ready to flip on a dime

I think the show needs better players. Not to mention any names but, some of these folks would provide better entertainment while asleep not to mention gameplay.

Think about it. When you recall standout players, are any of them from recent seasons? Seems there's always a 'celeb' of one sort or another too, usually the sports world and we should be wowed they are out of their element. I'm not. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the show but...

So true. No one stands out. The only one that has a boisterous personality got medivac’d out in the first episode.

She needs to remove that “Shut Up” phrase from her vocabulary. It definitely rubs people the wrong way.

When whats his face hurt his back and had to be removed, no TC. When B quits, they have a TC, just goes to show to balance out the numbers not everything goes the same way.

Ding Dong, the witch is dead! That ending was hilarious!

That whole jacket thing was ridiculous. I’m glad Weaselly lawyer guy stood up to them. The Goliath women thought they were in total control.

As well, its as if she had never watched the show before. She practically did everything that one can do to be disliked by the group and get the boot. See-Ya.

The only way Natalies' actions made sense is if her plan was to be dis-liked so much that it was sensible to take her to the end.

The thing for me that really got me was Natalie seemed completely unaware of just how she came across .. how can she be this big shot boss in Real Life .. ??

And her ignoring the "May I have your jacket ..?" request at the end was about as childish as I've seen on the show ..

She had no game ..

If her resume isn’t pumped up, she’s used to being the boss and have her underlings do her bidding. Plus, she’s a mom, so she might be one of those “My way or the highway” types.

Not the best qualities for Survivor. I guess her strategy really was the “I’m the oldest person who’s no threat, so use me as a goat.”

So glad she is gone. Wow, how does she keep any employees, they must be desperate for work or something. I can't read that article at work right now, but interested to see what it says about her.


She was so annoying. That whole jacket thing too was just lame, they sounded like 6 year olds or something.


One thing that always bothers me is tribes that continue to stick with their original groups. Like they start in say goliath and they stay there no matter what. Shouldn't you make new groups, especially when you mix things up and shift people around, based on what you need now and what you need to get to the end and not blindly sticking with who you were with on day one?

She was obtuse and a legend in her own mind.

I really don't understand the casting of Natalie, I understand having a TV villain, but what good was she really? Its not like she was fun to watch and made me want to see what she would do next, she was just an idiot.

The Goliath tribe had the majority before the split and they even had the majority in each of the three tribes after the split. Logically, each Goliath sub-group had the ability to vote out the Davids when their new tribes lost. And once the final merge happened the Goliaths could pick off the last few Davids left.

This is appealing for the Goliaths who believed they had control in the overall Goliath hierarchy. Once they got back together, they would still have the advantage even amongst the Goliath members. Those Gs that were not so comfortable saw the opportunity to try and form their own alliances with the David members so they would not be on the bottom of the G pecking order after the merge.

No sound issues here.


That bromance cracks me up and the geek is hilarious. Loved the scene of him feeding the big dude. That was some funny stuff.


No feelings one way or the other on the elimination. That tribe is one of my least favorite anyway.
