To someone voted off it sure serves a point.

Agreed--though I don't understand why the winners chose Nathan. That one threw me.

Jenni seems like such a ****. The way she spoke at Tribal Council shows that she has no sense.

Spoiler:
He's a good replacement for Cao Boi in terms of strength challenges and he is very neutral in his position. Especially in terms of down the road, when and if they vote off Ozzy. I hope the rest of Aitu was observant of the exchanges between Candace and Adam. The main thing is that there is some animosity towards Jonathon with everyone being suspicious. We'll see what happens with the merge and the original alliances... Asians = 4, Caucasians = 4, Afro-americans = 3, Hispanics = 1.

Im guessing that they wanted a strong guy for the next challenge, but didnt want to upset the White/Asian balance of power

BTW...the white team TOTALLY has a post-merge alliance

They should have taken Christine since she was obviously the one that was going to be voted out. That way, they make another ally for after the merge. Also it puts turmoil into the voting tribe as they suddenly have to vote someone out other than the one planned, and without any chance to talk to each other, therefore forcing them to turn on each other. Taking Nate was stupid.

If they took Christina, Jenny is easily the next person out.

Like Tommy Ceez said, I think it was a strength consideration. Now Raro is left with only two men if the next reward challenge is another strength battle. It would have been different if it'd been a "send to Exile Island and avoid the vote" thing.

Aitu (and Nate especially) must have been disappointed they didn't get to stick around for the vote.

I agree the Adam-Candace exchange might have been a big tactical error especially after Cao Boi planted the seed.

They already had the strength and were dominating the challenges, so had no need for Nate. I would much rather do something that would have them turning on each other, leading to distrust which may continue after the merge. Plus, I think Christina would have definitely been someone they could turn to be an ally after the merge, considering her own tribe doesn't really care for her. I don't think that is going to happen with Nate. So, if they did it only because Nate is strong physically, I think they chose unwisely.


Also, I don't think Jenni was definitely the one to go had they taken Christine. Only 2 voted for her. There is no telling what the other 4 would have done, especially since they would have no opportunity to confer with each other before the vote.

I wish Cao Boi would have tried to take the immunity idol with him from TC. Would have been too funny. Jeff:"I'm going to have to ask you to leave that here"... CB starts to back away... Jeff:"You can't take that with you." CB:"Watch me!" ...and he turns and runs off only to be tackled by the crew.
(That nut is crazy enough to try it.)

How long does Nate stay with the other tribe? I missed that. I agree they should have chosen Christina.

I mistakenly thought Jeff had said until the next reward challenge, so the pick of Nate kind of threw me for a loop, for I thought it would been wiser, like others have stated, to have kidnaped Christina. It makes sense to go with Nate if they want to win the next RC, but they need to be looking at the bigger prize, the million dollars, and saving Christina may have proved benifical to them once the tribes merge, in case they went into the merge without the numbers. But it doesn't look like some of these people are going to be voting along tribal lines once it happens, so it should make for an interesting after merge Survivor.

Did anyone else notice that someone drew what looked like a gun on their slip of paper when they voted Christina off. That's pretty damn cold considering she was shot at some point in the past as a cop.

I thought it was pretty harsh considering that it was pointing at her name instead of away from it, but maybe I'm looking too into it. Does anyone know which person made that vote?

Now, if they win the next reward challenge with Nate, will they have to share it with Nate, or send him back to his tribe with nada?

I assume they'd share it with Nate, otherwise what's the point? He'll just throw it.

My wife and I commented last night that it seemed a pretty bad thing to do. There didn't seem to be any humor behind it - just mean and tasteless. While Christina wasn't a favorite of mine, I'd now like to see Jenny go quickly.

Yeah, she's a bitch. Considering the 2 people who bitched the most about Christina were Jenni and Adam, I'm starting to wonder if there really wasn't anything wrong with Christina and it was just those 2 being the assholes they are.
