    Dawn yes... but Cochran? We saw a whole scene at the beginning where Dawn, Erik, and Brenda were talking about voting him out. Obviously Cochran wasn't one of Brenda's close allies!

    My wife and I said the same thing when we saw the votes. My guess is that maybe Cochran was afraid Eddie would go to Brenda and try to stir things up by letting her know she was being targeted. Then maybe those two would go after each other and everyone would forget about Eddie?

    The big question this episode was: Who will be more irritatingly overwrought with their histrionics, Dawn or Sherry? Dawn, of course, won hands down.

    In contrast, I thought Brenda's comments after the vote and at the show's end were quite touching. What a sweetheart. Her display of emotion was genuine and therefore quite moving, whereas Dawn's constant histrionics are all about self-pity and getting attention. I find her to be one of the most irritating players in the history of the game.

    I bet Brenda really regreted giving up the reward when she was stuck on the island having to listen to Dawn blubber.

    How cruel was it to have that BBQ just off the camp beach?

    Of course it's a game. Of course you sometimes have to lie. But it's also a game of alliances. Bad karma all around...I hope!

    Was it bad Karma that got Brenda for talking about voting off Cochran?

    Don't assume too much about the jury will vote; we have been surprised too many times.

    I think Reynold will vote for his bro no matter what, but I don't think Michael and Malcolm have much of a bond with him.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Cochran & Mom didn't really push themselves in the reward challenge because they didn't want to win?

    Cochram is certainly smart enough to honor the "never win the family challenge" rule. But I don't think they stood a chance anyway.

    I think they knew they wouldn't win. She apologized before they started.

    I just got caught up on the last 5 weeks of Survivor over the last 2 nights, and my lasting impression of those eps is Dawn is a freaking mess and completely unstable. Now that Malcolm is gone, I really have no one left to root for. Cochran is amusing to me, and he's definitely less of a weasel and wuss this time around, but I still can't really pull for him. I think I'm rooting for Eddie by default at this point, even though he's basically a cipher with little personality from what we've seen.

    Wow. What a show! I can't believe Brenda took that deal! It was a lousy deal for her and Dawn to begin with, and I could have told her that she would NOT be rewarded by loyalty for her act of kindness. Quite the opposite really...

    All in all, one of the cruelest blindsides in Survivor History. I feel bad for Brenda but I LOVE the show! :up:

    Eric was so starving in the beginning--don't they have rice or beans left? They never show them eating anything except for rewards. :confused:

    I wonder if they weigh them regularly for health reasons? They always seem to know how much weight they've lost--like there's a scales sitting around camp.

    Was there something about the challenge that made it easier for women than men? I know Brenda and Dawn probably weigh 160 pounds between them, but you'd think the guys would have way more strength in their arms.

    I hate to see Sherry get this far. She seems so worthless. Brenda played a good game, and she seems really nice (and her Dad is cute) but she should have held back a little more on the challenges. Except for this last immunity.....

    They should... wasn't it just 2 episodes ago (so like 6 days in Survivorland) that they got sacks of beans and rice and a lot of grody peanut butter that they were scraping off their hands and faces into a container when they got back to camp?

    I just figured he knew they had no chance in hell of winning and didn't really want to push his 60-something mother in that heat.

    I just figure that they are so weakened by now with all the weight loss that they their strength reserves are about gone, so they're going to fatigue easier. So the heavier ones that would have to rely more on strength are going to struggle. But yeah, it did seem surprising.
