Seems like this should be an easy win for Matt so I'm kind of rooting for Sarita.

The preview indicated that
Spoiler:
Matt has some kind of injury that could hurt his chances in the duel.

So I fully expect
Spoiler:
Matt to win.

Based on the preview, you can see that the Redemption Challenge...
Spoiler:
...looks like one of those endurance/hold-yourself-up challenges they usually do for the final immunity. And if that's the case, yeah, Matt will win. Sarita will collapse in 30 seconds.

Phillip's Bushido Code speech with the time lapse shots cut in was fucking awesome.

Redemption Island starts again? That ought to be interesting and will likely affect the end of the game

Show hasn't ended, it was i'm posting after Nat won the immunity. Why in the FUCK should we vote for man hair as the bold move of the day?

That makes me think that he will make a bold move, cause he only had a few seconds of air time this ep.

The bold move thing always has people who aren't worthy.

Awesome, Grant survives and MMMS wastes his idol. Gotta like Matt's chances on RI. Who voted for Steve?

I figured that out about 2 minutes after posting. I love to watch Survivor drunk so it takes me a minute

Rob had to hold his laughter when the immunity idol was played.

That's some funny shit. And all because Matt was sleeping with another girl's Bible. I liked David's reaction to the votes.

I guess no matter who you voted for in the poll, you were right.

While it was certainly funny, I think Rob overplayed. It would have been better to get rid of at least one before you blindside Matt. That having been said I don't see the advantage of any of his four allies flipping on him at this point (later sure, now...no). Phillip is crazy and unreliable though.

Re: Survivor: Redemption Island -- April 6th, 2011

poor, dumb Matt. He had it right ... he really doesn't know how to play the game.
Rob was right to get rid of Matt, who is an individual immunity threat and always a danger to flip. Now, Rob has a tighter control on his group 6-5. Maybe Matt bonds with Andrea more and gets her to flip 4-6 in the next TB or the next like he planned. Sorry Matt but he should have just said I am loyal, I want stay ... not all this back and forth that made even Andrea question him. He even promised her not to say anything but then runs to Rob and spills the beans.
On top of that, the HII got played. Good job Rob.

Re: Survivor: Redemption Island -- April 6th, 2011

Yeah i think they should have voted out a member of the other tribe and kept Matt around for one more TC at the least. Even if he switched sides after that first vote, the 6 would still have the numbers.

Re: Survivor: Redemption Island -- April 6th, 2011

I was ok with getting a chance to come back at the merge, but not again. It's very likely that the next player who re-enters the game is a strong player and there's even a remote chance that someone voted out near the final 4 could leave and re-enter from simply going there once. I don't think it's fair to the other players at all now, who have to win and play and much more pressure packed game.

No one should get to simply just back into the game around the final 4 and have very little to do, relative to the others, to get the end.

Dave certainly seemed impressed with Rob's move. But, again, with ANOTHER chance of re-entering the game for anyone voted out, it's going to be difficult to judge many decisions until we see who comes back and how it impacts the game.

My favorite part of the episode was when Philip was talking at the beginning, his marquee said something like:

"Phillip; former federal agent?"

Note the question mark .
