Pretty ho hum ep. That actually wasn't very smart of Troyzan imo. Even if he still some how survived today and Christina went home, it still leave's the big 4 in control. He needed to work with Christina. He got Tarzan to flip, but needed to work on Kat some more.

Troy was in a tough position. Ideally he would want someone at the top part of the girls alliance to go, such as Chelsea, but once he knew they were splitting the vote between himself and Christina he really didn't have a choice but to try to get her out since she was already going to be getting a couple of votes. Boring season.

Wow, Christina is dumb. They tell her that if Troy has the HII she will be voted off and she is OK with that.

The girls alliance would rather sacrifice one of their own than Tarzan.

I don't think he got Tarzan to flip. Sabrina and Tarzan were supposed to vote for Christina as part of the "split vote" strategy.

Absolutely. Tarzan continues to vote with the girls.

It will be very interesting to see who goes next week. I'd bet Christina.

It probably won't be Tarzan. I think at this point, Kim and Chelsea have a plan to keep him until the end. Do we know if the finale will be two or three this year?

I liked the part where Tarzan said technical mumbo jumbo about the dolls burning to ashes and joining the earth and Jeff said "I was just going to say that"

I wonder if the women could have butchered that pig. I wonder if the guy they rented the pig from would have allowed them to.

I don't know if Christine is dumb so much as she didn't see anything gained in kicking up a stink about it. The others were going to do what they were going to do. Perhaps she decided to say nothing but rather to work on getting votes for Chelsea.

Loved it when Kat says something about people not thinking she's running the show. Really? Kat? Really?

Troyzan is an idiot who lost the game weeks ago. Decent instincts, horrible execution (like when he didn't trust the girls and decided to use the idol. And then told that other moron his plans...)

Tarzan may be in a decent spot to make final 3 though.....

I don't think it really makes sense to keep Tarzan until the end... the game is clearly men vs. women and the jury is now loaded with men. Taking him to the end means risking losing everything to a 'revenge vote'.

Yes, the only way to guard against the revenge vote is to end the game with just the female leaders.

Of course, I think Kim has been pretty thoroughly identified as the mastermind; I wonder if that will keep people from voting for her.

True dat. The guys still had a chance when the girls told Troyzan that one of the guys (Michael?) wanted him out and convinced him to side with them. Out-witted. Then they beat him in the immunity. Out-played. Then they voted him out. Out-lasted.

I thought that pig looked domesticated. If it was a wild pig and not used to humans it would have run off and not stopped. The running around in circles was a give-away to me that this pig came from a farm. Also the other staged scenes where the pig was nearby and just laying there as the tribe walks by.

I kind of liked the comment from one of the guys that the girls think they're gonna be able to just yank off a leg and have a ham sandwich.

They tell her that if Troyzan plays an Idol she is going to be voted out, and you think she shouldn't "kick up a stink"? She should have been raising hell!
She should have demanded they split the votes between Troy and Tarzan.

The "it" is to break from the girl alliance and make a move with Christina, Chelsea, Sabrina and Tarzan.

Well as if there were any doubt, Kat is a moron, Christina is as big (if not bigger) of a moron. Okay, we're going to split the vote, and make it between you and Troyzan - but it's not you, you're not going home - we just want to split the vote in case he has an idol.

Wait. What?!?

That right there says that they're willing to "sacrifice" Christina since if they split the vote, it'll be two votes for Christina and 1 vote from Troyzan so regardless who he votes for Christina goes home. That right there would have sent me into scramble mode - it wouldn't have saved me (and may have put a HUGE target on my back) but you can't sit there and not do something about what they just did. Holy crap is she a moron.

Kat's insistence that she's a leader and not a follower was delusional - there is a reason everyone voted that you needed a slap upside the head with a lesson from life.

I'd imagine Tarzan is safe for a couple of weeks now while they eliminate Christina and either Kat or Alicia. Then they'll have to vote Tarzan out just because of the fear of the "revenge" vote making the final 3 Sabrina, Chelsea, and Kim. I think that Kim wins out of those with maybe Sabrina getting a couple of votes.

I want to see Troyzan back in another season - either an All-Stars or a Redemption (hopefully an All-Stars). It was Kim and Troyzan that figured things out - I don't believe that Colton would have been able to do squat after the merge and would have easily been eliminated.

Wow is Christina a moron. Sheesh.
