I never remember him being so preachy before. Yes, weird and "spiritual," but not like this.

Ozzy is a dick, and Cochran is worthless.

Coach's prayers ring false to me (especially when he prayed that they would find the idol...and it was in his pocket). What a twat.

I hope he gets the boot soon.

If Christine gets back in the game, I bet she sides with the other tribe.

Useless Edna hitting her head twice

You can almost guarantee there will be a merge if Ozzy wins.

Ozzy is a moran and everyone except Cochran is idiotic to go along with his plan. Again. Christine hates the other team. Everyone heard her talk about Benjamin at the RI. She is the likeliest candidate to flip. Her own tribe didn't help her against someone they just voted out. She will flip. Ozzy isn't playing to win but I don't know what. MORAN.

Even if she does flip and join them the numbers will be even anyway.

I'm wondering if Cochran didn't throw the competition after what Ozzy told him at the beginning of the episode. It seems to have worked out pretty well for him. Ozzy is either gone or will come back gunning for the prayer circle after merge. Plus he spared his entire tribe the torture of being forced to watch Jack & Jill.

Ozzy is an idiot. A soon to be gone idiot. I'd much rather look at Ozzy than Cochran, but he isn't even playing the game.

And that's moron, not moran. And yes, he's a moron.

Beides putting himself in needless danger, he has been watching Christine openly display her disdain for her former tribe. Does he not get that she will flip??? I hope the next redemption island challenge is a mental one.

He's just physically inept and gets flustered. That tribe blew it by not getting rid of him right off the bat.

Ozzy seems very foolish, but then again it could be brilliant. IF the merge happens and IF he beats Christine, then his tribe will be incredibly loyal to him--which he needs, because otherwise he'd have had--hands-down--the largest target on his back post-merge. But if this makes his tribe more loyal to him than Coaches tribe is to him (which is possible), this could be a brilliant move and get their six far in the game.

Re: Survivor: South Pacific -- "Trojan Horse" -- 10/26/11

Please let there be no merge.(Oh who am I kidding... as if Probst would allow that to happen, especially if Ozzie wins the RI challenge)

The ideal scenario is Ozzie loses, no merge, the tribe loses again due to Cochran and ironically is unable to vote out Cochran because he now has the idol.

Why would Ozzie give Cochran the idol and not someone else if he's going to get it right back if he wins at RI? I understand their master plan post merge, but there really is no need for Cochran to have the idol pre-merge.

Spoiler:
Weren't there 3 at the final RI challenge before the merge last season?

If so, there's probably a regular immunity challenge at the start of next show to send another to RI to join Christine & Ozzy.

Exactly. If anything should prove the lack of God's existence to those folks it should've been having to watch "Jack & Jill" as a "reward".

Jeremy's Power Rankings after Episode Seven

RankPlayerNotesTrending
1JimFar and away the front-runner at this point 4
2DawnNot a good edit for Dawn, considering how much of the focus her tribe got. Another week like this would be bad news. 1
3CochranHe survives again, but not a favorable edit at all for this point of the game. I don't see how he could get jury votes even if he makes it to the end. 1
4CoachManaged to annoy both non-Christians (lots of praying and God talk) and Christians (praying as a strategy, instead of with any sincerity). Quite an accomplishment.--
People below this line have no chance. It is really tempting to move this line above Cochran. Only his idol and his tribe have him above this line. I'd put Coach's odds at about 100 to 1 right now.
5AlbertMoves up by default, since he seems to have a clue about how to play. 4
6OzzyHigh risk-reward. It probably isn't going to work, but it was probably his only chance to get back in his tribe's good graces. 2
7SophieIrrelevant three episodes in a row. Hard times for a former frontrunner. Probably would do well if she was on the other tribe. 4
8BrandonManaged to avoid crying this episode. Unfortunately for him, he avoided any face time as well. Only Crazy Brandon gets face time, and Crazy Brandon can't win. 1
9EdnaCan we just eliminate all of the bottom six in one episode? 1
10ChristineImpressive RI run but no face time? No long-term future in the game. 1
11WhitneyCan we just eliminate all of the bottom four in one episode? 1
12KeithCan we just eliminate all of the bottom four in one episode? 1
13ElyseCan we just eliminate all of the bottom four in one episode? 1
14MustacheCan we just eliminate all of the bottom four in one episode? 1

I don't like Ozzy at all, but this was a good move if he wants to win. If they vote out Cochran, Ozzy still can't win a jury vote. By sending himself to RI, he gives himself a chance to win if he gets back. By making this move, he is on average eliminated sooner, but I think it is his only chance to win. I'm 100% sure Ozzy only cares about winning, not whether he finishes twelfth or fifth, so this was a risk he had to take. I don't think it will end up working, but that doesn't mean it was the wrong move.

Odds that he comes back from RI as his tribe's hero, then goes on to win it all > the odds that he wins any other way.

it's not a smart move since they probably already have Christine's vote. Ozzy needed to go into the merge trying to goad the other team to vote for him and then playing the idol. Coach and Brandon are dumb enough to try and take out the "head" of the snake first. Then Ozzy's team targets someone like edna or sophie. Ozzy's convoluted plan involves telling Christine that Cochran played the idol against him and the other team would try and turn Cochran. Well that would involve Christine beating Ozzy at RI otherwise she goes home and doesnt tell the other anything except probably giving them the finger again as she leaves. Also most all the RI challenges have been puzzles or skill type challenges and Ozzy isnt the smartest person by far. sending Cochran would have made more sense.

Ozzy is in for a shock when he finds out that God is on Coach's team.
