    That challenge sure did lend itself to some GREAT camera shots!

    I don't think Kim wins if she takes Tarzan.




    Agreed.

    My wife and I talked about that too, and we both agree. I understand the feelings about Christina and her father, but if it was THAT important to her to spend more time with him, maybe she shouldn't have gone on the show in the first place.

    From Kat's bio on CBS.com on why she thinks she will win:

    I would have picked Christina and her father. Yes, she could have not gone on Survivor if she wanted to spend more time with him. But I looked at it like this: how many chances do she and her father have left to have an experience like this together? Having a celebratory lunch together in a beautiful locale on a TV show. He will be dead in a few years. Even Tarzan and his wife (and the other survivors with their respective loved ones) when the show is over can look forward to many trips, experiences, and events together. Christine and her dad don't.

    Jury seems to be turning into Bitter Bettys and Kim is the target of their wrath.

    I would not take Tarzan to the end either which is sad cuz he is just as guilty as the girls.




    Is ANYONE going to look for the immunity idol?

    No one must be looking for the II, unless for some reason they didn't hide a new one when Troy used his. I almost forgot Kim has one.

    I have a feeling that Kim must have already told everybody and they just didn't show it.

    As is quite common these last few seasons, we have what SHOULD be a clear winner, and then we have a bunch of bitter jury members that all get together at Ponderosa and poison each others' attitudes, and then they come to final Tribal Council and they're not interested in respecting the person that played the best. Instead, they're selfishly trying to spite the person that "cost them their chance to win."
    I don't think there is another Hidden Immunity Idol available. Kim still has hers, and she's wisely keeping it secret. Troy played his two episodes ago, and if it had been placed back into the game, the winner of last week's reward challenge (Kim) would have been given a clue to locate it. However, since there is already one HII still in play, and only a couple tribal council's left where it can be played, I think they're not putting another one out there.

    I think there IS one available. If you remember, Troyzan tried to find it and then tried to trick everybody into thinking he had it. They were concerned enough that they threw some votes to Christina.

    I'll preface this by saying I think Kat should have probably taken Tarzan and Christina, but knew she wouldn't because she doesn't have a sympathetic bone in her body.

    That being said, I also don't quite understand the direness that people seem to apply to Christina's father, unless I just plain missed something.

    I don't know much at all about kidney ailments and the sort, but I thought that Chirstina had said her father had a kidney transplant a year ago or within the last year or some such. From the little I've seen of it, I thought people's health took a drastic turn for the better shortly - within hours? - of a successful transplant surgery. He seemed to look pretty healthy from what they showed of him, and especially when he ran out, it didn't seem like he was in failing health.

    I just don't get the 'he'll be dead in a couple of years' train of thought. For those with more knowledge of this, am I really off base? Or did I miss something that painted a much more dire picture from the broadcast?

    Oh, and it looked like Tarzan's wife has had JUST a bit of work done herself! Their reunion was sweet though. ;)

    While it's possible, they've never shown us that a clue has been given. Troyzan went looking because ever since Russell Hantz, that's what you do. But it doesn't mean that there actually is anything hidden.

    It's also possible that there is a HII hidden but nobody ever finds it, so any reference to it has been edited out of the show, since it doesn't affect the overall story.

    Christina specifically said he probably had 5-10 years to live. That's what we/they are going on.

    Christina herself said he only has a few more years left.

    When my brother had a kidney transplant in 1999, he was told that the average lifespan of a donated kidney was 10-15 years. That number could be increased or decreased depending on how closely the donated kidney matched, how diligent the donee is about taking the necessary medication, the age of the donee, the overall health of the donee, etc. My brother was 18 at the time. He's been fine ever since, and has shown no signs that he'll need another kidney anytime soon, but we all expect that he'll need another transplant sometime in the next 10 years or so.

    Perhaps Christina's dad, because of his age and whatever condition caused him to need a transplant in the first place, was told not to expect his transplanted kidney to last past 5-10 years, and that he would likely not be eligible for another transplant at that point due to his age.
