So when did Jeff say the show got good again? Or did I blink and miss it?

Given the edit Ryan is getting, as soon as the producers tried to paint a bit of a target on him early on, it was clear that this was going to be a paint by numbers episode

Obvious elimination is obvious. Props to Lauren for winning that challenge. That looked like murder on your thighs and back.

Fingers crossed that next week can get interesting. That the alliance of 7 just doesn't pick off the remaining 2 outsiders. That could happen if anyone feels they're on the bottom of that alliance of 7 ... and now would be the time to use the 2 outsiders to move up the ladder.

Not optimistic for that next week though. Joe is such an easy target due to unlikability and idol scrounging. And I wouldn't mind a predictable episode if it means not having to watch Joe anymore (and things can get good after that).

Every episode start I wonder "wait, did I see last week? I can't remember if I did" and then the recap it and I go "Oh, yeah. I guess I did see it".

Nothing of this show is even worth the time remembering as it's so dull.

I don't really understand Dr. Mike's play at tribal. Was he trying to get all the heat on him and use his idol to get rid of Ben? He failed miserably and he wasted his idol....

I know! He was smiling the entire time but his idol was wasted. I don't understand what he thought he gained. I do hope this gets better and Joe gets a big boot. He is so annoying

If he had just said nothing, Cole would still be eliminated and he wouldn't have any heat on him.

I'm pretty sure that he was trying to draw all the heat over to him, so that the 7 would vote him instead of Cole or Joe, and then he would play the idol and Ben would've gone home.

Except for the fact that Mike & Joe voted for Cole!

Exactly. Seeing they voted for Cole makes absolutely no sense and leaves the episode very unsatisfying and fake. Why would Mike use his idol and NOT vote for Ben

Because Mike is just another one of the idiots that make up this season. He's quickly gaining on Joe as being the most annoying as well. Ashley is growing on me after they showed her standing up to that douchebag Joe.

That's an excellent point of course. Maybe the strategy I posted was what he was initially trying for, but then read the mood among the 7, knew it wasn't going to happen, and switched to Cole?

Or he could just be out of his mind.
