Survivor Civil War! Whose side are you on? Team Chris or Team Domenick?

My vote is for neither I hope these fools destroy their numbers advantage, and a smaller underdog alliance smarts takes control (much like the first season that Coach played).

I wonder if they'll put JT's idol back on Ghost Island.

Chris is dumb. The moment Dom plays the advantage you have to play the idol.

Well, I guess Chris still trusted the others enough that he expected Wendell would get enough votes to be voted out. Now if Wendell had played his idol, then Chris would have probably played his too forcing Libby to go home.

Plus, I think he REALLY wanted to save it for a future tribal, which isn't a bad idea. But still...he went home with an idol in his pocket.

Was going to post this exact thing. I was astonished he did not leap to his feet once Jeff confirmed Dom's immunity. The idol was only good for one more tribal and he has a decent chance to win every single individual immunity...not to mention idols are being passed out like candy at Halloween so there's half a chance he'd find another. What an idiot.

He could only play it at this tribal or the next. It was unbelievably stupid to not play it. He shouldn't have even risked his vote.

Considering he had never been to tribal before last night, where alliances are confirmed, there's a compelling case he should have played it no matter what.

This is the first time all of these people have voted together, and you are 100% certain that you are getting votes. Given the limited power of that idol, he should have played it to be certain. Once Dom played his advantage, it was a no-brainer. Way too many moving parts on a vote split with a bunch of people with conflicting agendas who have never voted together before. They all voted in Dom's favor, but he wasn't so stupid to leave his in his pocket.

Glad to see Chris go. His arrogance was unbearable. One can only take so much "suave."

I don't know if it's the edit, but Dom isn't so bad. He's actually kinda likeable.

Doms certainly the lesser of two evils compared to Chris. Though I can see him getting really obnoxious now that his enemy is gone if he thinks himself in control of the game.

Didn’t Chris leave his idol back at camp?

Sometimes you have to wonder if a player is really that dumb, or it's just the edit. But yes, Chris really is that dumb.

Sometimes you have to wonder if a player is really is a dick, or it's just the edit. But yes, Dom is a dick.

Not much else to take form that last episode other than I'm starting to see how Wendell could be the player most seem to be underestimating.

Amazing episode start to finish.

I yelled out loud when Chris didn't play the idol. I wish he would've lost the first round of that Ghost Island game so he would've had to use it.

The funny thing is that in his interview he claims that if Dom hadn't played something then he would have.
