I hope Natalie gets the boot, runs into the woods, and falls prey to a secret tribe of cannibals.

I'll guess Erik wins immunity and Amanda goes home.

Voted Erik. I just think his luck has run out, and they'll probably give them a non-physical immunity challenge now that there's only 1 guy left.

Even with a non-physical immunity challenge Erik has the ability to win. But the odds are just against him to continually win.

I think he'll be voted out tonight and Natalie will be voted out in the finale.

If Natalie were smart she would see that she's the last in line in her female alliance and would try to make something happen with Erik and Cirie. Cirie sees how tight Amanda and Parv are and probably knows that she doesn't stand a chance at winning up against Amanda. Now might be the time to vote Amanda out.

It truly is amazing how often and quickly the title of "dumbest Survivor ever" has changed hands in the last month.

No, he didn't really do that.... did he? I'm at a loss for words.

This dwarfs every stupid thing anyone has done in Survivor history.

I've watched every season since All-Stars, so I'm not sure if this happened prior - is that the first time they showed *every* vote?

Back to ice-cream scooping for him!

I loved James yelling out something like: "And I am no longer the dumbest Survivor ever!"

I think we all knew it was coming when they showed the entire plan go down and focused on Natalie saying how stupid and impossible it would be. Absolutely incredible.

Well, that was one of the funniest tribal councils ever. Erik, Erik, Erik, that's not the way to make Survivor history, son.

Erik's Tribal Debacle just bumped Jason Castro's Trainwreck down to second most hilarious reality moment of the week.

Funniest tribal ever...they even showed all the votes being cast! Best season ever?

Ice Cream Boy is more like it Erik. I couldn't even watch the last bit setting him up it was so obvious he was going to fall for it. I have to say this season has had some of the dumbest bunch of men in survivor history.

Wow I was rooting for Erik, and thought Natalie would go home. But he will go down as the dumbest survivor player in history, no one will be able to top that level of stupidity.

If Amanda makes it to the finals, she'd be the only one to never get voted out (barring injury to others who left the game) in 2 seasons of Survivor.

I can't even think of a way to top that. Unless there is a drastic rule change I cannot see how anyone can possibly top that.

I can understand playing a fake immunity idol. Even if you think its fake its always worth playing.

I can understand NOT playing the real immunity idol because you think you're safe.

I can never, in any circumstance, see how it is a good idea to give someone else the immunity necklace at tribal council.

I wanted to see the women start turning on each other, but Erik really did bring this on himself making deals with everyone.
