I've got to agree with those who mentioned how unpredictable things have been with this season. After last week's episode, I'm not sure what's going to happen next.

Sash and Chase have idols (although Chase is dumb enough to give it away). Benry, Jud and Jane have a good shot at immunity. Everyone there wants Dan in the finals. I'm going with Holly this week.

I don't think anyone knows Chase has an idol, but people know about Sash's. This'd be a good week to try and flush Sash's idol while they can.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

I don't get all the Jane hate here. She's the only one I'm wanting to win at the moment. If she doesn't win, she's a shoe-in for America's player.

edit: Actually, I wouldn't mind Jud winning either.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

Dino most of her dislike by people is because of how bitter she was towards Marty and her attacking his parenting when she voted him out. \The editors are even half assing her phony underdog we are supposed to root for storyline.

Depending on how the rest of the season plays out I think if either Fabio or Holly survive long enough to be in the final episode 1 of them will win America's player. After having 3 big charecters go out in a row these 2nd tier charecters will became the new default narrative charecters that Brenda and Marty were.

I don't want Jane to win because our Survivor contest prize would go to 2nd place and forever put an asterisk next to the winner's name.

Also, I had Marty in the Survivor game.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

But if that did happen, I don't think there would ever be a leftover pick again.

I had Jimmy T and there was no way I was rooting for that guy after actually seeing him on the show. I also have Benry, but I think his only shot at making it is if he were to go on an immunity challenge win streak.

I have Jud I NEVER thought he'd actually be viable as a final contestant. I just took him for fun. Jud FTW!

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

Everyone says stuff like "you know not to take Jane to the finals" but is that really the case? Marty wouldn't vote for her. Chase would, but is she liked well enough that people would vote for her because she "deserves" it?

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

So is this the most underfed tribe ever? They always lose weight, but Sash and Jane are starting to look like Holocaust survivors.

And Dan seems to be re-defining 'under the radar'.

I thought that during the immunity challenge. After it was over, I asked myself "Did Dan sit this one out?" and had to go back and see if he was out there.

to Jeff for introducing the jury and referring to NaOnka and Purple Kelly as the two quitters. I would love it if he continues to do this from this point forward. It was hilarious to see NaOnka beaming as if she wore the title as a badge of honor. Purple Kelly, however, seemed ticked off to be there. Perhaps when she quit, she thought it meant she could go straight home and she's not happy about being made to stick around.

I think he's on everyone's radar...as someone they want to take to the finals with them. Voting him out at any point now would be pointless as he doesn't factor at all in the immunity challenges and thus poses absolutely no threat. I bet he doesn't get a single vote between now and the finale.

If anything, Holly is under the radar. As much as they talk about Jane being a lock for the prize, Holly has just a good shot at the million dollars, I think.

(Sash's only hope of a win is if he gets Dan and Chase to the end.)

Of all the skeletors in the history of the game, Jane is the skeletoriest!

He must be doing something right socially if he was with the majority alliance on the old people tribe then when the shuffle occurs he fits in with the young tribe.

If he makes the finals I doubt a juror would be like you suck and are a worthless player 60 something year old man with your bum knees you should be dissapointed you are not good at challenges.

The one player left who is no threat to win if they make the finals is Chase.
He may be a nice guy but he is an emotional player who was belittled even by his closest allies

That is because America is stupid. She is getting the same hero edit that Rupert got his first time around and the sheeple ate it up then too. He was an annoying jerk off and so is Jane.

Purple Kelly cleans up nicely. As does Brenda. I'm not a Brenda fan, but wow, she looked smoking hot last night.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

I can definitely see the annoying part, but I just don't understand the hate and **** comments. NaOnka was our **** this season.

Maybe mwbis (our resident reality tv expert) can answer this. Has anyone that's ever been up for Sprint Player of the Week been voted out that week? I hate when they do this mid-episode, because to me it's saying that these players are safe. Why would they have you vote for a player of the week that will be voted out in 30 minutes? I wish they would do this at the end of the episode.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua Dec. 8th, 2010

After watching every Survivor season but one (whichever one Gary Hogeboom was on) this one ranks as the dullest by far. I've already bitched about the lame people but I was hoping that the challenges would ramp up after the merger removed the oldster tribe but that just isn't happening. At this point I'm rooting for useless old Dan as a win by him might actually make them shake the show up a bit. Yeah right.

That was the highlight of the episode.

I kinda hope Dan wins also. No one has really done much this season to earn it, other than maybe Sash, so it would be funny to see him win.
