Who voted Malcolm? He has the HII, he can't go home!

I bet Denise goes, but boy would I love to see Abi or Lisa go. Abi is clearly the goat, but how Lisa managed to bumble through this game is beyond me. I liked her initially, but after the past few weeks, its more painful to watch than someone who coasted under the radar.

Well, technically he could be a total moron and not play it.

It's funny that the pic doesn't include one of the final five (most likely four after tonight). Although I guess we can assume that Skupin just fell down the hill.

I think it may be Denise... if Lisa is finally playing strategically.

sugar high Skupin feeding Lisa a cookie off a flipper is perhaps the strangest thing I've ever seen

That picture only includes the noobz... no Skup, Penner, or Black Russell.

James during the China season had TWO HIIs and still went home.

I could practically see the thought bubble over Skupin as Abi is berating him: "Maybe it is worth a million dollars not to be stuck with Abi anymore".

That HAD to be an act though, didn't it? Just trying to drive him nuts and drive into people's minds even further that she's a bitch and she should be taken to the finals...if not, then just...wow.

Good riddance, Abi! Confirms the belief that there shouldn't be any prize money except for the winner. Her playing just to make the final 3 was pathetic.

at the clip of the remaining players laughing and dancing as they left TC.

I'm of the belief that Abi is REALLY bad, but also that she was playing the game at tribal. I concur that she was doing anything she could to annoy people even more than usual in an attempt to sway them into keeping her, because that was over the top even for her and it definitely seemed forced (which is not a huge stretch for someone so completely annoying).

I'm sure I'm the only one here who'd love to see Lisa win (I guess I'm still not over Blair), but seeing as she has no chance of winning against any of the other 3, I'd rather not see her make the F2 than to see her not get a single vote.

I still believe if Lisa or Jeff had gone for the kill on Denise tonight they'd have stood a better chance to win if either could drag Abi to the end-I mean Malcolm still has a huge advantage in challenges either way. I think this jury will be bitter, but I don't think they are even close to being bitter enough to give Abi the million.

I'd like to see Lisa win, also. I think it was a big mistake not to take out Denise. Skupin and/or Lisa would have guaranteed themselves 1 mil/100k if they had been able to take out Malcolm in one of the next tribals.

Lisa is a terrible player and is really annoying in general.

You should make sure you post this in the thread each and every week. It's possible someone may have missed it.

I wouldn't mind seeing Abi return for a possible Heroes vs. Villains II

Re: Survivor: Philippines -- "Gouge My Eyes Out" -- 12/12/2012

So pretty much the only person who shouldn't have voted for Denise... was Denise.

Even Malcom benefits as it is one less person that can beat him at the next immunity challenge and only leaves Skupin as a real threat.

I really don't understand Skupin and Lisa - sure Abi is annoying as crap but they can't deal with that for 3 more days? I don't see them having a chance against either Malcom or Denise. And if they both turned on Denise, I don't think it impacts jury votes as people aren't suddenly going to throw votes to Abi (if it it's a final 3) and if Malcom gets there, they are done anyway.

Having seen the Ponderoas videos and from the the lack of dirty looks/angry glares at tc I would be shocked if the jury will be that bitter. The only one who seems like she will go on a bitter rant is RC.

It's not always the simple linear of take goat to end.

Lisa realized she can't beat Malcolm and Denise is far more likely to assist her in Skupin in beating Malcolm in the f4 challenge. It's pretty much the same scenario why Natalie and Russell kept Mick ahead of Jaison in Samoa.

And for Malcolm keeping Abi means he 100% needs to win the final challenge. If he loses the next IC as far as he thinks Lisa/Skupin will keep their word to him plus he might think even if they turn on him he could get Denise to side with him.

Weird how Malcom and Denise made it this far after their original tribe was decimated so early on.

I figured that she was acting that way because Skupin had told her before the TC that he wasn't going to vote Denise.

That's what I thought as well. It seemed like she already knew she was going home at that point.

In some ways, I think it might have been smarter to vote out Denise, but I also think that could have worked against them. Allowing Abi to stay in the game for that long could have created some bitterness in the jury where there previously was none.

Not to be overlooked in all the strategy talk ... there are friggin' vampires in the jungle!!! I hope the other remaining players are smart enough to keep an eye on Denise (and a sharpened stake at hand).
