    I wish that the kids had not sucked the juice out of a family quad TAR; I planned on applying with my wife, her ex and his new wife. :)

    But as someone said before, if there was a final 2 and 1 of them was Abi it would be pretty boring. If it's 3 you can't just win by taking Abi with you. There's usually someone with no votes, and she would be it.

    Yeah that's what they're trying to avoid. With 3 you have a better shot at it being competitive. With 2 it could be a landslide. But I don't remember too many finals being close regardless.

    And to add the other 7 finalists back into Season 8.

    :D

    Yeah, that sounds like it could be interesting. With 20-some seasons to draw from, they ought be be able to make up a decent casting pool...

    So in the 10 seasons there have been 3 finalists 9 times the third one got no votes. Seems pointless.

    It's not pointless, it keeps the winner of the last immunity challenge from cherry-picking their opponent in the final.

    I don't think it's pointless, they are trying to make sure that the final vote is not anti-climactic between, for example, Malcolm and Abi. Makes sense to me.

    It's semi-easy to drag along one piece of useless baggage to the final 2 or 3. Much more difficult to drag along 2 of them.

    Overall when there has been a final 2 the winner has received 71.7% of the votes. When there is a final 3 the winners have received 70.9% of the votes. Adding another finalist hasn't made a difference.

    It's not such an easy comparison. In many cases where there was a final 3 the winner of the last immunity challenge would have taken the lowest vote-getter (of the 3) to a final 2 and received a much larger percentage.

    I prefer a final 2, but I recognize the problems with that format.

    I'm "stealing" this from another forum because I think it's spot on.

    Yeah that's a good point. I think a Lisa/Skupin/Malcom final could potentially be close. Or even Denise in place of one of those. But I'm resigned to the fact Abi makes the finale.

    If Lisa makes it to the final, I have to assume that her "true identity" comes out at tribal. I wonder how that will affect the jury---will they be angry because this was withheld from them?

    Of course, Penner could have already disclosed it by now...

    If I were on the Jury and Abi makes it I would give my vote to her. I don't like the idea of taking the person who annoyed everyone to the end because they are not liked. If you cn vote out the B***h then you should. I think the strongest at the end should be there and then it comes down to who can sway the jury ie Amanda and Parvarti. Amanda was wonderfully liked but couldn't string together two coherent sentences when questioned by the jury. Parvarti wasn't liked but she was strong and played the game well and at the end convinced the jury to vote for her. At this point I want one of the other four to winn but if they don't vote out Abi then none of them deserve to win.

    It's basic Survivor strategy to take some to the finals that you think you can beat. Taking the best players is a self defeating strategy. I think you deserve to lose if you give the jury a chance to pick someone they think deserves to win more than you do. The only people who would vote for Abi are those who are too bitter to vote for someone like Malcolm, and I don't think we have any of those this season, other than Abi herself.

    But Abi isn't strong or cunning or smart or devious. She's not like Boston Rob or Richard Hatch. She hasn't played the game well or won challenges. She's mean and she's stupid.

    I think that she's just too honest.
