I like what I'm reading in the synopsis.

Nobody's going to beat Ozzy on RI. If he makes the final 3 he wins it.

Cochran was starting to crap his pants as he watched Whitney continue to stay alive in the Immunity Trivia Challenge.

Damn. Was hoping Whitney won there so the vote might be at least somewhat interesting.

I'm happy they did the back to back double tribals. Obviously the producers knew that the votes were going to be predicatable so they put that twist in in hopes that Whitney could create some drama. Hopefully the game will get more interesting from here.

Despite Coach being the favorite I think Sophie is playing the best game so far. If she gets with Albert and Cochran she'll end up winning. Those were two clutch immunity wins in a row.

I think so, too. I don't think Sophie's on anyone's radar, but she's been a smart player and immunity winner, so she could secure the votes for a win pretty easily.

I'm glad they changed the second round of Redemption Island from those who didn't lose stayed to only who won stayed.

I'm honestly surprised every time I see him. "Who's that? Oh yeah, the cowboy." Or when I'm going over the numbers during the show... "They said six... who am I missing?" I can't remember ever having someone this deep into the game that's made less of an impression with me.

Think was Whitney. Too bad she thought those clams were dangerous...

There was the really young guy who made the final four in the first Russell season. I'm not sure we saw him speak a word until the final episode

Me, too. It would have been very interesting to see what would have happened had she won. It might have shaken things up within that alliance at least a little bit.

I just refer to him as mustache. He is such a non-entity in this game.

I think this is the new normal ever since Tocantins .Focus a ton on 3-4 people and let a lot of end game people literally go weeks at a time without any confessionals. Pretty much everyone left besides Brandon,Cochran and Coach have gone stretches of episodes where they never speak.

I would not rule out Albert or whoever comes back from RI either

I'm tired of Albert -- he talks BIG MOVE, but chickens out every time. Cochran is a much bigger risk taker, but he has to be.

Yeah, I'm not convinced that Rick is even playing. I think he might have just wandered into the camp and stayed there.

Albert needs to shit or get off of the toilet.

Albert's big talk with lack of action could end up putting him at the bottom of his alliance because he'll be perceived as a loose cannon and not loyal.

Actually I thought Albert had the best line of the night when he said (talking about Edna) that Survivor wasn't "Outsweep, outclean or outorganize"...or something like that.

This was really the night to send a message and get Coach out. Since that didn't happen, I don't see how he doesn't win this game. They all seem to be scared shitless of him.
