    I was not really surprised. Challenges relying on balance and/or flexibility and/or body weight usually favor the women. I was really shocked at Reynold's performance in that balance challenge. For this one, the men are still a lot heavier and have probably lost a lot of muscle mass, not to mention there would just be more pressure in general on their hands. Plus, they were at an odd position where having more flexible shoulders would have really benefitted them. I know this as a super inflexible person who can barely lift my arms more than a couple inches in yoga when we put our arms behind our backs like that and then try and lean forward and lift them up behind us. :)

    This. Challanges like this one always favor the women.

    Pretty much how I feel, although I might not mind Eric winning either. He may not be strategic, but he's a nice guy. I understand it's a game, but I did not enjoy what they did to Brenda.

    I'm not sure I understand this. They didn't think they could beat her in the finale and this was the BEST time to get rid of her. It is not their fault she gave up an immunity challange and a reward. They didn't do it out of spite.

    Dawn's comment of "well we can wait till tomorrow and make this same decision then" was incorrect because Brenda might have had immunity then and then they couldn't get rid of her.

    I fully understand WHY they did it. It just was not enjoyable to watch, for me. I have seen fun blindsides and not-fun. This was not-fun. YMMV.

    True. Though, Sherri came with a strong move during the second loved one announcement--going down to her knees to blubber by herself rather than clutching her older son husband (which would have required her to share the moment with another).


    The only shocking ending will be anyone but Cochran winning this thing. He's had more face time than Boston Rob had in the season where his team walked him to the finish line.

    Dawn is one of my least favorite players ever. Can't stand her. As long as she doesn't win I'm fine with the outcome.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have next season be all new players. No "favorites", no "villains", no "second chance because they got hurt", no "allstars". Give me all new please. And Burnett/Probst, don't even think of EVER bringing back Redemption Island.

    I would love to have Cochran up against Dawn or Sherri because I think he would win hands down. Well, I hope.

    Sherri can't win because she's basically done nothing.

    I don't think Dawn can win because of both what she did to Brenda, and the whole "being a part of everyone's alliance" factor. Everyone on the jury will see her as betraying her alliance with them.

    Eddie could win if the jury is bitter enough, so they should hope he doesn't win immunity next time and get rid of him.

    Erik is the only one who has any real shot next to Cochran of winning, but he hasn't really done anything outside of win a challenge. And he has not seen nearly enough camera time. Four or five weeks ago, I would have said that Erik could still be the winner, there is still time for them to bump up his camera time. But now here we are at the finale two days from now and I don't think he will. He has gotten more camera time, but I don't think nearly enough to be the winner.

    The bitterness factor of the jury is always a wildcard. Hard to predict how they'll vote.

    My hunch is Erik wins

    Brenda just did a local radio interview. She was laughing at how hard Dawn took missing out on the family reward. She said "I got to see my dad and we only had 4 days left so it wasn't it big deal to give up the reward".

    She said she gave up on the IC because she thought letting Dawn win would cement their alliance. She said she wants to do survivor again and if she does "next time I won't let go and next time I won't find anyone's teeth".

    She's now engaged.

    Then she said she is rooting for Erik to win.

    Spoiling my thoughts just in case...

    Does that means she already saw him make it to the final three?

    that's how I took it. Each week the person voted off has done the local radio spot and they have all been very careful in what they say so I was surprised when Brenda said that. On the surface it would appear to mean he makes the final 3 and she voted for him but I guess we'll find out Sunday :)

    Good. I don't ever again want to see or hear from any Hantz, any Hantz friend or anyone who look like a Hantz

    Another Spoiler about Sunday

    Just saw a preview. 5 remaining players. But a medical emergency makes it only 4. That would suck with only a couple of days left.

    Another interview with Brenda. . . .

    Key Q&A:

    THR: Have you been in contact with Dawn or Cochran since filming ended?

    Brenda: I've had no contact with Dawn and would not actively seek out a friendship with her. It if wasn't for the finale [airing live Sunday on CBS], I wouldn't talk to her. It's not out of bitterness, but more out of, "I don't want someone like you in my life." Cochran, I've talked to, I have no problem with him.

    I hate watching Dawn, but I do feel for her. Erik is a strong young guy and they showed him being all depressed. Dawn is just a nervous wreck, and I probably would be too with a million dollars on the line and her being as close as she is. That being said, she has no chance. I could see Erik winning. He's nice and could come up big in the last challenges. I love Cochran, but the one I think deserves it the most never wins. :(
