    I can see why Vytas changed his vote, and it probably wasn't that he didn't want to draw rocks.

    Last week, Culpepper used the excuse that he didn't want John to link up with his wife (if she made it back into the game) at the merge.

    I can see him thinking, "What if Culpepper decides that it wouldn't be good for him if I partnered with my brother, Aras (another strong player) after the merge?"

    Culpepper was setting things up as to what was best for him, not the tribe, which wrong at this point of the game.

    He got rid of a strong player now when the tribe needed him because of what he thinks could happen later, and in the process weakened his own alliance. Apparently Hayden still though he could be trusted, but Vytas decided he wasn't trustworthy.

    I did notice the tat and don't remember her having it the first time she was on. They never showed her close up enough to see what it was.

    I didn't understand that part at all. Why would Tyson and Gervase leave the coconuts they drank from sitting around where someone could find them? Why not chuck them out into the middle of the dense jungle where nobody is going to be walking around? Why take the chance that someone will find them and wonder what is up?

    As for tribal, that was a very bold move by Caleb, but very well done. It was pretty risky, because from what we've seen in the past, people know who they're voting for before tribal starts, and rarely does anything said at tribal change that. So him announcing that he was voting for Brad could have seriously backfired on him. But instead, it worked out exactly as he intended. However, the chances of that tribe winning any immunity challenges from here on out is pretty slim. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we had a tribe switch in the next week or two.

    I have an even simpler question: why is it wrong for Tyson and Gervase to drink the coconut milk?

    For not sharing. If it wasn't wrong, why are they hiding the fact from the rest of the tribe. Why paint a target on your back.

    That's kind of what I was thinking too. Aren't coconuts plentiful there? I'd think if anyone wanted one, they could just go get one. Are they ALL high up in trees?

    I assumed the coconuts were from a cache that the tribe had previously gathered so they would be missed if Tyson & Gervase had chucked them into the brush.

    Coconuts may be plentiful but they're also mostly at the top of 50 foot tall trees. There is definitely effort required to gather them up.

    I assumed they were just from a spot where people go to gather coconuts. They seemed to be pretty far from camp. I don't know why they would have gathered a cache so far from the camp. :)

    Another thing that shocked me in voting Brad to RI is right now it seems Brad has a large target painted on him in the eyes of the other tribe. After the merge it would seem many would easily agree he should be target #1 to get rid of (especially if RI is gone by then) since he has taken an active roll in trying to control a lot of the game. To me it seems good strategy to keep in the person who will easily be the bigger target. Though it could be all editing.

    But not if you don't trust him.

    The voting is done in secret, right?
    There is no way to tell if anyone changed their vote if the results are the same.

    As secret as you can be with cameras and producers recording and watching every second of it ;)

    Except that's not really what happened, IMO.

    When learning that John had a clue to give away, she said, "Let's give it to Monica." A request.

    When Monica received the clue, Brad barked at her three times: "Walk it down and put it in the fire. Walk it down and put it in the fire! Walk it down and put it in the fire!" until she complied.

    His was an order; hers was not.

    I think normally it would have made sense for her to keep the clue for her tribe to share, but since she has someone else on the other tribe she would rather be playing with, that kind of takes that strategy out of play.

    The loved one twist definitely changes up the whole game in terms of strategy. So far, I like it.

    I didn't think the loved one idea was all that good but so far I like it. Still hate RI.

    I think RI also adds a twist. Brad would not be voted out at all if it weren't for RI. Like he's said it gives the voted out member a chance to vent and let everyone know what's going on.

    But the finality of being voted off is taken out of the game. I miss that a lot. It takes away a lot of the drama from Tribal.

    I agree with this. I kind of just says, you're going to go play the game somewhere else. And with 3 at RI, you have a 66.6% chance of staying in each week.
