    Edited for time, I assume. We don't always see all the rounds in challenges like that.

    Culpeper is playing the classic Alpha Male game. He must be the leader, he must make all of the decisions, and he must convince himself that he is doing so without the others noticing.

    And the classic Alpha Male mistake: turning on a key member of your alliance because he threatens your Alpha Male status.

    Stupid.

    Right, the first-team-to-X challenges are always more than what they show. This one was probably to 7 or 9, but Probst said 5.

    I think Probst should have just taken Colton's buff and tossed it away. Now Colton has a Survivor buff that has some value. The other folks that stick it out and get eliminated have to burn theirs, why should Colton get to take his home? I bet it shows up for sale at some point, benefitting the quitter.

    I agree; Probst should have confiscated the bandana.

    His name is Tyson... I am not sure what the Game of Thrones reference was about. :)

    Do you honestly believe that, the minute the cameras were turned off, somebody on the staff (maybe even Probst himself) didn't demand that Colton hand over the buff?

    Agreed. If the other team finally goes to tribal council, I wonder if his behavior will blow back on Monica? She could be the first to go from that tribe.

    Her tribe is getting to see at RI that obviously Culpepper is running things on his tribe.

    Glad to be rid of Colton, no matter how it happened.

    The next RI challenge will be interesting now that John and Candice are up against each other. Although, I suppose they can just hope to beat Marissa. If they win, there may be some funkytown going down at RI, for at least one night. :)

    I thought it was funny when Culpepper said they needed to get rid of John because after the merge his loyalty would go to his wife. Don't they all have someone else to be loyal to after the merge? Or most of them.

    Based on the information we have, in that Probst SAID "I'm going to let you keep your buff", why on earth is it such a stretch for you to believe that I would think Probst LET HIM KEEP HIS BUFF? You act as if I'm some imbecile to believe what Probst said rather than your guess as to what happened after the cameras were turned off.

    They may have asked for it back, who knows. But to respond the way you did is even more strange than letting Colton keep the buff.. :confused:

    I wonder why Culpepper's wife sat out the challenge instead of Cierra. She may not be strong, but I'm sure she's stronger than Cierra!

    Colton is a tool and should have never been invited back. What a waste.

    I was disappointed to see John get voted out. He seems like a genuinely nice guy, and he is a strong competitor. I honestly think the right move would have been to blindside Culpepper instead. It was such an idiotic thing for him to suggest that everyone else should vote for John, but he was going to vote for one of the girls just in case John comes back in the game. Hayden was at least smart enough to see right through Culpepper's bulls**t, but he was ultimately not ready to make any waves. I think Hayden is still getting his feet wet, so to speak. I anticipate that he will go far in the game.

    That is one way to look at it. But I'm pretty sure a loss is a loss, maybe they can ask Probst, hey they're margin of victory is less this week, can we not go to tribal?

    As for Culpepper, he cant go soon enough. But even when he goes, I'm guaranteed to have him still on my tivo with his ambulance chasing commercials (ff helps, but the're slow-mo, so ff just makes his creepy smile fast-mo).

    I swear Colton used to work with me but under a different name. I'll never forget when un-Colton asked one of the District Managers if they were mad at him. Sounded just like me when I was 5 years old..."Are you mad at me?"

    Anyway...didn't contestants used to get to keep their buffs? Any idea why they changed it?

    In my opinion, Jeff should have taken the buff. Colton will probably just sell it on eBay.
