Aren't you really confused during the finale?
I can be suprised with the vote. Then during the final words I can see who voted for who. Sometimes I really don't like all the scrambling of asking of how everyone in voting.

I really don't understand the big deal about the cookie. Randy had Beer, Peanut, Pasta, and Bread. Did he really even want the cookie? And Jeff said the cookies were for the tribe. Why did Randy think he was in control of there distribution?

It was a sealed bottle with a message inside that couldn't be opened until the next challenge. It was a two-part challenge where only three would be in the final part. When they opened it, the message said she could skip the first part and automatically be in the final part.

Every year with the auction, I don't understand them. You're playing for a million buck. Screw the $500 and get yourself some food, comfort, and/or clues. If I saw that burger with fries, I would have outbid everyone @ $500.

They hold on to their money hoping for something better to come next. Obviously, they don't know when it will end.

C'mon, it's not like people in the semis are slow dawdlers.

Even still being good enough to race in the semi's of the Olympics is pretty damn impressive. Has to be some kind of identity theft.

You figure after 16 seasons or so, you'd have an idea of how many auctions would be held.

Exactly. Just to be qualified to be in the Olympic require talent. No idea where that went.

So no one thinks Crystal has been dogging it so that she isn't look upon as a physical threat in the game, and then turns it on for a good stretch run when her more physically capable opponents have been sent to the jury? (I have no idea if she's dogging it or not, but again, just because you can run fast in a 400m loop doesn't mean you have the agility or nimbleness to be good at Survivor challenges).

The only time Crystal was good in a physical challenge was the one where they had to pull an opponent off that pole and drag them. She was a tough bitch in that challenge.

I was really disappointed with Bob. He didn't need to make Randy look like a fool. This only hurts him. Now he will have at least 2 people on the jury who won't vote for him, Randy and Corrine.

Plus telling Sugar about the idol was stupid. Why tell her ?
Does he really think now they're not going to vote him off after Corrine ?

I'm rooting for Matty.
I just don't want Suzie, Sugar or Crystal to win.

The incident with Randy and Sugar over the cookies was my favorite part of the episode.

It reminded me of how people at my office will go absolutely apeshit over a plate of cookies or box of donuts. If someone brings in a plate of cookies or donuts, then it pretty much guarantees that someone's not going to get one, someone who the collective hivemind doesn't think deserves one eats one, or any other such question over the distrubtion of the baked good, and half of the people who work at my place are pissed off for a couple of weeks.

(For the record, I won't eat any donuts or anything like that if I don't know where they came from. I remember stories from my college days.)

So many priceless moments, but I gotta go with Crystal yelling while casting her vote.

I was wondering when someone was going to mention this.

Actually I'm not really laughing knowing that Crystal is going to finish much higher than she deserves, having been pretty much useless throughout the game.

That had to be the most entertaining tribal council in Survivor history.

Bob made a bad move. He gained some respect from Sugar but he's still the odd man even if they vote Corrine out next. Bob comes off as such a smart guy and I understand WHY he did this but he needs to realize that there is no way Randy will ever vote for him at the end.

I love how this episode was edited. Matty bring up the right point in going for Bob before Randy because Bob is an immunity idol threat. Then Randy "burns the house down" and they flip and decide to vote him out. All in all, Randy's plan wasn't so bad. Hope that Bob got the idol and make sure everyone was voting for him. If Bob really did have the idol it would have been one of the best blindsides ever.

Still a fan of Corrine. I'm officially the only one. She's a real bitch but I kinda like it. I don't think she deserves to win, never did but I would like to see her go far.

Right now Kenny, Matty and Bob are the only ones that deserve to win. Sugar is a twat. Crystal and Suzie are the most useless Survivors ever. I hate it when players like that make it so far. Bob has been playing his game. Staying low key, being well liked and trying to win challenges. Matty is the only strong competitor left and he's smart and likable too. Kenny is just king of the castle right now.

Next weeks preview looks VERY interesting. But I can't help but think it's going to be something completely different than what it seems.

He definitely was one of those "love to hate" characters. He was an ass, but he was an entertaining ass.

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.

Ha ha, yeah, between Crystal shouting her comments, Sugar's weird "Loser" line, and Randy's "this isn't strategy, this is strictly personal" line, this was one of the best TC's just for what happened when people wrote their votes.

Then we get to the fake idol, which was hilarious when it happened.

I didn't see Bob laughing. I think he can play it off. He could easily say that he found it at Exile, and that Sugar must have made a fake one. It's happened multiple times (Yau-man's season, Fans vs. Favorites).

I LOVED this part too! I started laughing so much, and loved the reaction Sugar had afterwards. In Jeffs blog he things Sugar laughing during the reading of the votes was "not cool", but I don't think she was laughing at that. I think she was still laughing at the way Crystal yelled out what she was saying, I know I was still laughing at that. It's also the kind of thing that once she stopped yelling, and you sit there and think about it, it just gets funnier and funnier. I probably would have been on the dirt floor pissing in my pants if I was at the tribal.

This was THE best tribal ever.
