    Even though they didn't win they can feel proud that they were out of their comfort zone for so long. Morgan was clearly out of her element. I don't have a problem with it.

    I saw that. That reward challenge was the first thing after the first commercial. What I missed was the cold open segment, which presumably was the scene of them arriving back at camp after the previous episode's TC.

    All I remember is the usual nightvision return from tribal and Spencer telling Kass that he was not angry (he clearly was) but that he thought it was a bad move. Kass congratulated herself on her brilliance by getting rid of Sarah and 2 II (as if she had a clue about those!).

    So what was Spencer apologizing for when he and Kass were out looking for the HII?

    In so many words, for telling her she was a bad player and that she didn't make a big move, but a bad one.

    I said to my wife, it Morgan reminds me of Baywatch....and she punched me :)

    I kind of agree. I like watching Tony play, and I thought he was playing a smart game until he played his idol for no reason. Still, he is a bit devious and I think he has a plan. But I don't necessarily want him to win.

    Well looking back he played it for no reason but he can't see the future. He felt the need to play it because he didn't completely trust Kass. He didn't hear everything you did about how they were voting.

    Tony looks to be the favorite to win right now. Jefra could also win as the bland, floater choice if Tony rubs too many people the wrong way. Kass doesn't seem to be playing to win. She thinks she's a lot smarter than she is. She still has a shot as long as she's in the game but she's really made it more difficult on herself.

    You see the same thing at many final TC's when they get to question the final 3. "At least I played the game with integrity". As soon as they change the name of the game from Survivor to Integrity that might matter.

    Tony thinks before he speaks. He has lied to everyone and they all know it. I give Tony zero chance of winning.

    We chuckled at the editing and commentary during the reward challenge. As they show Morgan running (we all know what that means) after the balance beam, Jeff's commentary is something like "now everybody get to the chest!".

    It wasn't Tony that played his idol for no reason, it was LJ. Tony's move was actually pretty smart. He heard the other alliance all say they were shifting their vote to the "other one" and he assumed that was LJ. He knew they were no longer voting for him, but he used the Idol to protect his alliance by playing it for who he thought the "other one" was.

    It was LJ who made the boneheaded move of then revealing his idol and playing it for Tony, when it should have been clear that the other alliance wasn't voting for Tony.

    He's the alpha male of the now dominant post merge alliance. Guys in that position typically make it into the final three. There's still time for him to make mistakes but it wouldn't be difficult for him to get there. There's frequently talk about a coup and taking out the player in that position but in past seasons that's been more talk than something that actually occurred.

    I will bet you a fake $1,000,000 he doesn't make the final 3 ;)

    heck, I'll give you odds! :p

    There's been plenty of players who have "lied" and have won. I don't rule out Tony's chances at all. It's, as always, dependent upon who he's in the final three with. If he's with Spencer, I don't think he wins. With Kass or someone else? Why not?

    Based on the amount of camera time he's getting, I think it's at least 50/50 he makes it.

    But is it going to be a Final 3? To keep the jury with an odd number, it will have to be a Final 2 this year.

    They started putting people on the jury when they had 11 players. Maybe it's not what they intended after losing two players in one day, but that's what they got.

    Fans have been complaining about the stupidity of the Final 3 for years. Maybe this year we get our wish.

    It's been a long time since they had just two finalists. And the last few seasons they've had an even number of jury members. They've never had a close vote spread among the three finalists. Even with three finalists, they've never had a winner that didn't get a majority of the jury votes, even though it would be possible to win without a majority (4-3-2 or 4-2-2 for example).

    I'm not sure it's accurate to say "Fans have been complaining about the stupidity of the Final 3 for years." While I'm sure it's true that some have, I don't think that necessarily means it's the majority opinion.

    I thought the mad dash to find the Idol by everyone was exciting. I'm happy that Spencer found it.

    I too thought he found the special idol. And I also thought the special idol let you play it after the votes were read. If that was so, then he could have gotten out Tony with it last night.

    It looks like Tony is now freaked that he saw his name written down. It may be his down fall.
