Personally, I think she's less likely to be arrested for petty theft if she won the million dollars...though perhaps she'd join Richard Hatch in prison for forgetting to pay taxes...

I liked what Anubys said and was thinking of commenting on it before I saw your post. I get his point ("at this point everyone playing the game agrees Kim is the mastermind") that we have all been witnessing and commenting on for weeks....yes Kim believes it too, but the other dolts believe what isn't reality. They just keep reinforcing it to become a reality that they are all peons. How many times, prior to Troy mentioning it two weeks ago, did many of the players know they were all just as capable, with a couple of exceptions . They knew KIm or no one else at that point was really running the game, yet they all kept plodding along like she was and that nothing could change. Again...but they knew it could and they would go no where if they didn't but they failed to act. More like procrastination with a touch of fear making them incapable of moving forward.
I'm not sure what's confusing about my comment. Anubys said Kim was the mastermind and likely to win, and I pointed out that the jury decides who wins, and more often than not, the jury is bitter toward the mastermind and votes for someone else.

I bet she thinks the capitol of taxes is Houston.

If they really wanted to catch the pig, why not just tackle it? They were certainly close enough to it.

Yeah, I thought with that many people and that size pig which didn't seem mean at all, they could have easily caught it. As far as the bacon and ham comments go, everybody knows you just put it on a spit and put an apple in its mouth. They could have done that too. The whole pig scene looked fake to me. All the screaming was really stupid if they were seriously trying to catch it.

I have a feeling they were probably told they couldn't kill it so it then just became a game to try and catch it.

I remember one season the tribe did kill and eat a wild pig. One of the guys knew enough to slit it's jugular and hang it until all the blood drained out to avoid trichinosis.

That was fun seeing them actually hunt and kill something. He didn't know what he was talking about. Draining the blood has no effect on trichinosis. It is in the muscles. Draining the blood though was a wise move, though.

re: this season. I suspect the pig was planted there, and agree with the comment about the producers telling the players they couldn't kill it. One of the woman commented about keeping it as a pet. It was a small pig but would have made for quite a feast.
