What did Corrine win with the $500 at the auction? I missed a couple of minutes.

Damn, Sugar gets hotter every week. Funny since I didn't think she was attractive at all when the season started.

Best. Episode. Ever.

Randy and Corrine are just such vile people and Crystal isn't far behind. How is it possible for an Olympic athlete to be so nonathletic?

My guess is that CBS is wondering the same thing.

I don't understand this. How is this any way to watch a show?

Aren't you really confused during the finale?

Jeff is funny

By the way, (which is, by the way, one of the phrases that most annoys me because everyone in Hollywood uses it as a way to alert you they're about to say something brilliant) all this stuff about me being attracted to Corinne really surprised me. Here's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I felt like I had been beating up on Corinne for so long that when I saw her smile on the last episode I figured I'd say at least one nice thing.

Fittingly, Corinne probably hated that I said it in the first place. But just so we are clear, I have no interest in dating Corinne. I do not have the hots for Corinne. I don't think about Corinne. I like nice women. Done. Enough already.

I love how every episode Corinne spends the whole time talking about how stupid everyone else is but she always ends up looking like the dumbass in the end.

i think that was the funniest tribal councils ever. I absolutely loved it. God I can't stand Corinne the more I see her on tv. I hope she goes next.

Something tells me he's not going to be on board with "synergizing" his Tribal Council wardrobe with them

I wouldn't mind Kenny, Sugar, Matty, or (unlikely as it is) Bob making it to the end. Kenny's trying hard at playing the game - both in the social/strategy part, and busting his butt for challenges. He'd be a worthy finalist. Just so long as Susie or Crystal don't win. Susie has been completely worthless. Crystal is annoying and shockingly unathletic, though at least she delivers some entertainment ... I loved how she just shouted her TC vote comments for everyone to hear

Yeah, I'm still not sure what to think about the idol prank. Bob could've sold it as "Hey ... I followed the clues and found this. You're welcome to try and play it". Sugar was out there so often that she would've had plenty of time for an arts-and-crafts project. But Bob reacted like he was in on the joke (although ashamed of it) instead of being another victim. I just hope the next couple of weeks aren't predictable for the vote-offs. Watching the alliance with numbers pick off the other side gets old fast. Matty and Sugar both better not be too comfortable - Matty for being a physical threat and Sugar for having the II.

Yeah, for a back-stabbing ****. She's pretty much screwed over everyone who has trusted her and her partner-in-crime Kenny is just a lying flake.

Bob is the only one I'd like to see win and that certainly isn't going to happen, considering the nest of vipers that are left. With tonight's episode, this season is officially over for me.

I love it, complaints about lying and screwing people over on Survivor. It's PART of the game-always has been-and if you get to the end and have done it badly, it usually bites you in the butt.

The rest of the group are all "vipers" but Bob, who went along with Sugar's plan to humiliate his own alliance member, at least as far as we know now, just to make sure the other group would keep him in the game and possibly/probably to get himself into a good position where he might still be able to be around when the group of 5 fractures.

By the way, I like Bob a lot. I just like Sugar and Matty too. The others are meh...except Corrine who is horrible and Crystal who deserves to go just for being so unbelievably bad in every challenge.


Good-bye, we won't miss you.

Is next week's show on Thursday (thanksgiving in the US)? I think it usually is a new episode, but CSI didn't have a preview so I assume that will be a re-run. Does anyone know for sure?

That's what I was thinking while watching Charlie and Marcus pick their clothing.

I'm with you. I would like to see Kenny, Matty, Sugar, or Bob win. Frankly, anyone but that asshole Corrine.

I actually liked Sugar until tonight, but now for some reason find her just as despicable, if not moreso, than Randy.

The cookies: Randy offered her one and she said no. Randy wouldn't give hers to Matty. Randy offered her one again, and she took it and gave it to Matty, with that sweet little smile of hers. And then she spent the rest of the time railing against Randy.

Sorry--she's just as bad as Randy--but with that cutesy pin-up model smile and tattoo. At least with Randy what you see is what you get.

Oh please, don't be naive. Who hasn't done that on this show? THAT'S THE GAME!

Like I wondered before - where did all this Sugar rage toward Randy come from? She's spent so much time away from the tribes.

That's kind of how I feel too. Why pour salt in a wound in a game where you are trying to get everybody to like you? Just vote Randy off and be done with it. I'm sure the producers liked it though.

After Bob, I'd like Kenny to win. He's likable enough, has been thinking a pretty good game thus far, and isn't too bad in challenges. Oh yeah, Matty too.

Marcus and Charlie spend hours picking out their wardrobe when they are on a tropical island? I've got to imagine there's better things to do there than play dress-up.

And what was with Corrine when she approached Bob, assuming he had the HII? She does remember Sugar was there a ton before Bob ever was, right? She apparently thinks Sugar is an absolute dunce and couldn't have ever found it?

Randy crashes the Charlie-Marcus bromance at Ponderosa:

They look like a big happy threesome now! Though Charlie still seems to always be snuggled by Marcus's side. You have to love Charlie's fishing technique, of shoving the pole between his legs while shaking his ass.

And judging by the end of the second clip, it actually does look like they worked out their wardrobes together

I thought Kenny was just gonna be a tag-along, but he is turning out to be one of the best players this season.

What is up with the idiots not spending their money at the challenge. Did Crystal bid even once?

I'll third this. Her "It's just a cookie" defense was b.s. She knew exactly what she was doing.

That said, it's amazing how the former power alliance is now making the stupidest mistakes without Marcus. I can't figure out why they were so sure Bob would have the idol, even before he returned from Exile... and why none of them, not even Bob who was on Exile twice and can't seem to find it in the place it should be, has even considered the idea that Sugar might have it after the half dozen times they sent her out there. I know they may think she is just a dumb blonde, but frankly the clues didn't seem *that* difficult and with that many opportunities anyone should be able to find it.
