Cirie is stupid for thinking she's going to any final with Amanda/Parvati/Ozzy/James.
If Amanda, Parvati, Ozzy, and James somehow keep their alliance together, whoever is the fifth in that group is in a fantastic position to go to the final. That person can't win, but Cirie can't win anyway. At least she'll get 3rd place money.

What's your hard-on for? Pretty girls who add nothing to the show? There's internet porn for that kind of thing.

Give me examples of times those players have been more entertaining than the people I listed.

For some people, being a douche bag (Fairplay, Danzig) = entertaining

For others, like me, being a douche bag = please go away

Even if you think they're douche bags, you can't deny their presence in the game being a catalyst for other entertaining things to happen.

Whereas the only thing Natalie's contributed to the show thus far is describing her possible alliance with Teeth as "hot".

Riveting.

I bet a lot of people here think Eliza's a douche bag too, but without her you don't have next week's classic stick scene.

True enough! And Amanda and Parvati probably realize Cirie can't win in the end, so she's a great tagalong.

Of course, it looks like Parvati is making backup plans with Natalie and Alexis.

I'm not sure I've ever hated a Survivor contestant as much as I hated Ami when she gave her, "Thanks for talking to Amanda and Cirrie, Eric. Your futile plan failed, but now we're all BFFs" speech. I wanted to reach through the TV, snatch that machete she was waving around, and and wave it in her fucking face to wipe that shit-eating grin away. God, what a bitch.

This episode was good, but that tiny little Eliza/Jason 10-second clip from next week contained more entertainment value than some entire seasons.

I think Ozzy is a little too arrogant (or getting an "arrogant" edit by the producers) this season. Time will tell if it bites him in the butt.

At least Natalie spoke more than 3 words in this episode. She's really below the radar this season.

That also struck me as extremely bitchy but I thoroughly enjoyed Eric's response, "Um, thanks." I really hope he gets far - granted he kind of reminds me of a deer-in-the-headlights at times but other times I think he has (and hopefully will) show that he is an "almost Ozzy".

I'm enjoying the crazy challenges and some of the game play but every Thursday at 8 PM I cry a little inside at not seeing Yauman.

You just know in that last challenge, Yau-Man would've done on-the-spot calculations in his head taking into account the weight of the bags, geometry of the course, and wind resistence. And he would've owned it by knocking someone off the course with a perfectly placed throw every time

I think the pizzas have usually been generic, but yeah, I was figuring they must not have found a sponsor. Something other than take-n-bake probably.

Since the majority on their team are fans and Eric was the only fan left on the other team, they should have tried to give him immunity, just to protect their numbers and shake up the favorites.
Ooh, that would have been good, assuming they had beaten Ozzy in the challenge.

Oh joy, then we can look forward to another episode of Cirie hemming and hawing. Pull a Dolly on her and let the two couples battle it out on even ground!

I'd rather see Eliza succeed, though.

I cant believe no one has mentioned natalie not wearing a bra at the challenge. She is the hottest contestant survivor has had. If someone could get a picture of her standing there before the challenge I would appreciate it.

I also agree that when ami thanked eric for talking to the girls, it was the bitchiest thing I had ever seen. And you would think she would not want to antagonize eric any more. Eric could have went right to ozzy after that and said now ami is locked up with the other two and ozzy may be next if eric is gone. I was so happy about the two voted out the past two weeks. both were huge bitches.
