Survivor 10/3/12

I think getting rid of Angie was the right move, but Russell is really not very good at challenges either.

Yea that was a tough choice both are worthless. Angie really seemed young this week almost like a kid. I guess you have to keep the one that has more strength.

Was anyone else rooting REALLY hard for Abi not to find the idol? Can't stand her and her unfounded paranoia.

I'm always against getting rid of the cute girls early. Survivor is all about eye-candy.

However, in this instance, even I would have voted for Angie. Although I would've probably asked Jeff is we could vote out two people.

Abi is psycho. Her personality switches from one to another in the blink of an eye.

And that makes me want her to stick around as long as possible for the entertainment value.

Yellow bra girl, RC?, was very impressive in the challenge. She kept going back and got 3 or 4 in a row. That woman has some serious stamina.

Angie has the body of a 25 year old woman, and the face and voice of an annoying 14 year old girl. And based on this episode, she's also got the strength and reasoning skills of the 14 year old girl as well.

Why did she keep harping on the fact that she "would have" kept going? That wasn't the point. The point was that if she kept going, it would have been slower than someone else, because she simply doesn't possess the physical capabilities.

I'm hoping that there is a switch at the beginning of next episode, because it wouldn't make sense to have half of the other teams sit out the challenges. Plus, with a switch, they can screw with alliances and allow people to regroup.

It's funny now, after all this time, realizing that his exit from Survivor: Outback was as inevitable as the sun rising in the east. I wonder what will put him out this time.

What a sad sad challenge. Russell couldn't get up the ladder and Angie couldn't get the puzzle piece loose and gave up after one try. I think the other team had it right - letting the one girl go as many times as she wanted. Too bad Denise and Malcolm couldn't do that for their team.

I think they chose right to get rid of Angie. If they don't get integrated into the other teams, they will have to vote Russell off next.

Denise and Malcolm did go back multiple times, didn't they?

Yes, but they took turns, which meant they had to take the extra time for one to climb up onto the platform and tag out. RC just stayed in the water and presumably this was faster since she never had to climb out.

I wonder if Angie's boobs made her too buoyant.

I had the exact same thought when she was having trouble diving down for that puzzle piece.

Yeah, they went out in the jungle and imbedded it in the ground. They didn't show whether she then covered it up or anything. She can't really stick it in her pocket, and in the past people have searched the bags of other players, so they have to hide it until it's time to go to TC.

How can you be built like that and not be able to climb a ladder???

When Skupin dove into the water, I made an audible flinching sound...GF asks "What was that?"

"You ever dive head first into the water with goggles on? That **** hurts...it's like getting slapped in the face with a piece of plywood"

He comes up with blood streaming down his face. Priceless.

Do implants float? I'm thinking that her pontoons mean that she does not have to fear drowning.

At least we know that Skupin is not a haemophiliac.

There's something hypnotic about that tiny, flimsy little fabric barely covering the Brazilan booty, but her personality (probably more than one) is the thing that snaps a guy back to reality, though.

Does silicone float?

Edit: Oops I smeeked.

The interesting thing about the II this year is that it's VERY obvious that it's been found. And I think it will be fairly easy to figure out by who(m). It somewhat changes up the dynamic of the game.

I can really relate to Michael Skupin. Although my accidents generally involve spilling cups of water, knocking over random things in the house, or hitting my head on the top of the hatchback. I'm pretty lame compared to what he does to himself!

That ^

Hopefully the producers do just that... mix things up and change the tribe dynamics, even if it's just pulling one player from either of the teams that has yet to go to tribal, if they mix the teams up and get everyone to even strength before the next challenge, they could potentially wind up pulling two players from one of the formerly stronger team (one lost to the team that acquires the new members, one lost via losing the challenge and going to tribal).

That would also, as noted, really mess with the alliances as Russell, Denise and Malcolm would potentially have numbers over any new members of their tribe, or... Russell could perhaps form an alliance with the two new members and use that to get Malcolm or Denise out before they are able to get him out (assuming Malcolm or Denise isn't able to pull a new tribe member in with them immediately).

Certainly mixes things up and makes the show that much more interesting, so yes, I'm definitely hoping for just that.

BTW, Angie's problems with the challenge, along with Russell's made me wish that the rules for the challenge required all members to bring back at least one puzzle piece. While I give credit to the teams that took advantage of their strong swimmers to get the pieces back, I think the tribes should all have had to dealt with the potential of having poor swimmers once the challenge commenced. The two stronger tribes could have sat out their weak swimmers in the name of evening up the teams, but otherwise, anyone that was participating should have had to go and retrieve at least one puzzle piece before anyone could have gone back a second time.

I just figure that Probst has talked to these guys off camera and has asked them how they prefer to be addressed.

I thought he always called Penner Penner?

Has ANYONE from the loser tribe even tried to find the HII? I don't remember everything that airs, but I don't recall even a bit of that tribe finding a clue or looking for the idol.

They probably haven't figured out how to open the container of rice therefore haven't seen the clue.

His original season was Cook Islands, right?

I can't tell if this was CI or FvF, but this video starts off with Jeff calling him Penner.

Penner

Penner is a cool last name. He never calls Russell by his, and Skupin... I couldn't figure out what he was saying at first.

I think Russell found the clue for the idol, but that was it.

Funny how often one tribe gets decimated while the other(s) keep at full strength. And how close the challenges can be and yet the same tribe keeps losing. Remember when Steph was all alone when they finally merged. I don't remember how they did the last couple challenges that time.
