Looks alright. I could do without Zeke, Tai, Sandra, Ciera, Cirie and Debbie....I find those folks utterly annoying and am already looking forward to them being voted off. But I get it why they were cast again.....

I was thinking the same with Sandra, Cirie, Debbie, and Ciera.  Zeke irritated me last season, but I'll see if he's any better this time around.  Tai, I'm okay with.

After seeing Caleb be a creep on Big Brother, then redeem himself on Survivor, only to get airlifted out due to heat stroke, I'm glad to see he's coming back.

I liked Tai for the majority of his season....then he just lost it for me and became real annoying to me....can't put my finger on why? Same with Zeke. I started off really liking him but then he got real arrogant and annoying at a point and it was off putting.

For me, that was more the case with Zeke.  He started even getting a little bully-ish at one point.

Interesting.  A change up of the rules regarding tie votes at TC:

Hm, I think I like it.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

I was trying to figure out how this was going to change things, it seemed a little confusing, but I think I've got it now.  In any instance where they majority has double the votes of the minority and chooses to split the vote from the onset, they can't fall back on the luxury of a revote, to switch all their votes to one person.  They immediately risk going to rocks and potentially going home themselves.  Nice.

yep....it's a good change to end what was a lame approach/tactic.

I like it.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

No kidding. I'd have voted her out just for the fact she's won TWICE. Kick her out and then start. I'm curious as to if her little bravado tirade towards Tony will alarm anyone....about her being the Queen and so on?

Anyway, I'm already sick of Tai and the chicken thing. I'd kill every one of those chickens at once and eat them right in front of him.

I hope so.  That shit was getting really old really quick throughout the whole show.

And Sandra IS right, the likelihood of someone awarding her a third win at the end may not be real high, but you never know.  That's what she's banking on, and if she gets there, she can say "Look at this.  I've won twice, they should've voted me out the first chance they got, and I'm still here" and win again.  I just hope it doesn't come to that.  She needs to go.  Take your overconfident "queen" bullshit, STFU, and GTFO.

:lol Yes! I really don't like Tai, between the animal stuff, and being a downright crappy strategical player, both of which were on show already.

I would have liked to see Tony stay longer. He was so crazy paranoid, but he made things interesting. He can't be that much of a threat yet when everyone knows him and his tactics. That whole thing with him building the bunker and listening in felt very fake and planned to me though.

So far I like the changes they've made to the game, including the preview for next week.

The bunker was a ridiculous thing.  He did that on his original season, in a place that was MUCH better secluded from the water/mail place.  This time, he was literally trying to build a dugout RIGHT NEXT TO IT.  WTF?

One of the dumbest vote outs ever. That'll turn into 'girl power' real quick and Tai and Culpepper are gone. Just a stuiped decision.

I have no problem seeing "F*ck You Brad Culpeper" go home.  And the whole goat sequence was just uncomfortable.  Couple with Sandra's insistence that "f*ck you, we're gonna eat it".  That was just unsettling.  I'm glad that they all thought better of it.  Also, if that HAD gone through with it, I can guarantee you, there would've been public outrage.

That goat thing was just silly. And you're right, that'd have been the talk of the twin for a news cycle or so.

The only reason I'm rooting for Culpepper is that I have him in my office pool. Him and Malcolm. I also have JT and Debbie in the 'B' pool.

In an interview with Caleb that was posted online today:

On how much pre-existing personal connections impact the game:
“You know, you have your pre-game alliances and people call each other and there are several people that have played together and it does make you wonder. Like at my Tribal Council, Sierra and Hali. One thing that they didn’t show was Sierra called me out. She says, ‘Well, Tai was at your wedding. Why would we keep you two here together?’ And I said, ‘Well, you and Hali have matching tattoos from the last time you played.’”

Goes to show you how heavily the longer-than-what-we-see TCs are edited.  It just irks the shit out of me how much Probst and co. insist on fucking with stuff just to fuck with stuff.  Storylines were developing just fine and BOOM.  Switch.  Effectively fucking SEVERAL people at random for no good reason.  Each tribe has very clear targets now that they didn't have before and it's extremely not cool.  It's why Caleb left.  He was unlucky enough to be the odd man out on a tribe with someone he shouldn't have ended up near.

SON OF A MUTHA FU%KING BITCH! I just lost my best shot at cashing in in the office pool. Utterly ridiculous that Malcolm is gone. JT sucks....little dick. Why Sandra is still around blows my mind.

I've not been this ticked about someone getting kicked off since Fighter Pilot Terry in his original season.
