Also, you gotta love Cirie's approach with Michaela, which was basically "You're a bitch and you're really not very good at hiding it.  Stop being a bitch."

I couldn't stand Debbie last time, can't stand her now.

Yeah. I hate her even more now.

Last chance for me in the office pool is Culpepper. Otherwise, Debbie had to go. What a nut job.

And Michaela needs to GTFO also.  She was so pissy from being benched that she didn't notice the

SECRET ADVANTAGE

right under her feet.

Yeah, you can't fucking act like that.  I do not know how her shitty attitude has not gotten her voted off yet.  I gues because everyone knows nobody would award her the win at the end.  I'd want her gone, just to be rid of the attitude.

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

No frills, no surprises.  I honestly don't really have much to say about this episode.  Although the exchange between Hali and Debbie at the end was great:

Hali:  Game changers
Debbie:  Idiots

:rollin

I've felt the same about these past two episodes. But get ready for the obligatory manufactured drama of the family visit next week!

Yeah, that always irritates me.  It's definitely an emotional moment, but as we've discussed, it just feels manipulative or something.  I'm not a fan of bringing families out to see each other for THAT short a period of time.

It's manipulative, and they know it, and that's why they do it every season. It's a guaranteed cheap way to wrangle drama out of an episode. I've never liked the family visit episode. It's scummy and contrived.

You can almost see Probst licking his lips when this shit goes down too, thinly veiled as surprise like he didn't know what would happen after 30 seasons of the same thing. :lol

Yeah...you have to assume the lack of sleep and nutrition affects their minds and emotions. There's just no way you can be that distraught after what...28-29 days?

My wife always makes fun of them and tells me that she's sorry...that she loves me and all but she'd never get that emotional after such a short break  :lol

I think that after nearly a month in those sorts of conditions, seeing any of my family members would reduce me to a useless sobbing wreck.

It's hard for me to imagine what it's like to not only be apart from close loved ones for a month, but also the malnutrition, shitty living conditions, and perhaps most of all, only interacting with people in a game situation where you can't trust a word they say and have to carefully consider everything you say and do in return. It's probably somewhat like coming out of prison. Seeing someone you really trust and love after all of that, and then having them leave so quickly, is probably pretty shitty.

This season infuriates me. One dumb move after another. Sierra had a zero chance of convincing a jury to give her a million bucks. Andrea just adds to the resume by still being there.

And Sierra gifting that advantage to Sarah shows how dumb a player she is. Sarah has voted 'against' her and her alliance the whole season yet she gives her the advantage and not Brad who has been with her since day 1? Makes zero sense. But it fits this season being that it was a retarded move.

I'm glad Sierra went. I've never liked her.

When they put them in groups of three for the reward challenge, I was like "oh good, they're not going to do the manipulative bullshit with making the winner choose two people who else gets to spend time with their family".
But then Probst was like lol nope, we're still going to do the same manipulative bullshit and make you choose two people who get to spend time with their family.

I skipped all of the cliche family stuff, so I managed to watch this episode in under 20 minutes. :lol

Brad's team won that reward challenge handily, with next to zero effort, it seemed.  Same manipulative Probst crap.  Bums me out.

And yeah, you're almost like "Sierra who?"  NOBODY would've given her the win for getting lucky enough to not do anything to piss anybody off and by chance getting to the end.  BUT LET'S GET HER OUT!!!  Dumb.

Perfect night of vote outs if you ask me.

There had to be some serious editing going on in the last day and tribal council.....otherwise, Tai not playing one of his idols there was idiotic. Too much confusion going on for any of them to feel safe and when he didn't play his idol I thought for sure he was done.

OMG, we were screaming at the TV "YOU IDIOT!"  Shocked that Tai did not go home.  But yeah, happy to finally see Michaela's smug, self-important bullshit get voted out.  And Andrea was also a smart move.  I nearly shit when Cirie said she was taking Sarah's vote, with the advantage Sarah gave her.  Then I nearly DOUBLE shit when Probst was like "Nope, Cirie, not yours, you lose."  She was totally going to vote Sarah out, I don't care what she says.

I'm again shocked Tai didn't use his idol, but we don't know everything people said to each other around camp and whispered during tribal. Still, he has two of the things, so why the hell not?

Well she did explain that the reason she told Tai about the advantage was because after the advantage was used, the person you stole the vote from still had an opportunity to use an idol to save themselves, now having a clue you were probably voting them out.
But after that clusterfuck of a tribal, who knows.

Right, if she took Tai's vote, then he'd figure she was voting him out and play the idol, but I'm almost surprised they wouldn't have WANTED to do that, in order to flush out a potential idol.  Only they don't know he has two.  :lol  It's still all kinda confusing.

And does it feel like they've rushed through this season?  Next week is the finale.

It always feels rushed at the very end, so I think that's normal length. :lol I never like having multiple tribals in one episode, because it always feels rushed and less eventful.

How can they flush out an idol? If it's a draw this season, thy don't do the usual re-vote first. Or am I confusing myself here?

No, I meant, if they made Tai think he was going out, he plays his idol and the next most votes goes home.  Then they know his idol is out of contention and they go for him next go around.  Only they don't know he has another.

Maybe I'm confused.

But the next most votes would probably be one of their own group, leaving them with weaker numbers at a crucial time of the game, and they don't have enough to split.

Maybe we're both confused. Let's not play Survivor.

There's not a prayer in hell I'd last a week playing Survivor.  First off, my shit swimming skills would kill me before malnutrition would.  Secondly, there's no way I could bear the possibility of being away from my wife for that long and having to live under the crushing levels of anxiety and paranoia that one must deal with.
