Candace getting voted out probably had to do with pre-game alliances. She was a last minute replacement for another former player, and therefore probably hadn't made any alliances. As much as they're not supposed to, a lot of former players keep in contact with each other, and when a returning-players season comes up, they make alliances before the game even starts.

Funny you mention that because I JUST read this on Dalton's recap

Then it comes time for the returnees to vote. It is a split decision between Candice and the other Laura, with Aras becoming my instant hero by voting for Gervase and his Philadelphia Eagles shirt and explaining, “I’m a Washington Redskins fan.” I don’t necessarily think that is true, because if so, I’m sure Aras and I would have had numerous conversations about my beloved football team, but I do know this: That vote was camouflage. None of them will admit it, but my take from my pre-game interviews is that Aras, Gervase and Tina struck an alliance before they ever left the United States. Unfortunately, this is commonplace on seasons with returning players. RC — who was sent home from location with her dad just two days before filming began due to his medical condition — had pre-game alliances as well and even tweeted to me about it.

I was thinking the same thing when there was a consensus on the votes without actually "knowing" anyone. I was positive that the more well known Survivors have probably gotten together at various functions and know each other. I think that Jeff should make them come clean about it, but he won't. It's another reason I'm not enamored with returning survivors.

I also think Jeff has a relationship outside the house with the football player and his wife. Jeff has a habit of calling people he knows by their last names. As soon as he called the football player by his last name, I figured they were friends.

Yeah, I was hoping they weren't going to vote off Tina's daughter. Her rack is pretty much the only good thing about the family member tribe.

It's the new and improved Colton! That other guy, from the previous season, was wearing a "mask". Ohhh. I see now.

The guy is such a fake and a brat. He can't just be part of the team, he has to make himself the star. First time by being a complete asshat, then he found out the fans didn't love to hate him, they just plain hated him. So he tries going in the opposite direction - I'm misunderstood, poor pitiful me - whatever he was babbling about during that appalling crying jag (I ff'd thru most of it). Then, first time he's under a little stress in the challenge, he threatens his teammate.

I thought to myself, yep, there's the real Colton.

Jeff claims he just instinctively called him by his last name since that's what everybody called him in the NFL. They do have just their last names on their jerseys.

We need to either a) get far more coverage of Redemption Island, or b) get Candace back into her tribe, because she's got a rockin' body.

and I'm sure Jeff was around the NFL? Most players are refered to by first and last name by announcers.

I didn't expect the vote at the beginning. While the voting was going on, I thought that the voted off players would go to the other tribe. Would have been interesting to see if a pair could survive one than one week without getting broken up. Disappointed that redemption island is back.

The season Aras won was dominated by the Air Force pilot, Terry, who had an amazing immunity challenge run only to lose the final (extraordinarily lame floating/balancing) immunity challenge.

It's funny seeing people get bent out of shape by football guy not including whatshisgay as one of the guys, when he's clearly not one of the guys. But, if he doesn't go with the girls, he is a vote they can string along.

Having seen Colton play, I would not go into the game wanting his partner in my alliance. He does seem like a good guy though, so maybe they will change their minds if he proves to not be psychotic.

I an't believe no one has mentioned Culpepper's counting scene about 4 of 9 and 5 of 9. It was hysterical!

Not to mention there was also a Dante Culpepper in the NFL, who was also a QB. (Yeah, I know Dante is black)

I find Rupert as annoying as Colton. Can't stand either one.

I was hoping at the beginning they would have split returners and loved ones and had each group pick from a bag of 5 x colored rocks and 5 y colored rocks and mix the teams up that way.

I think it would be interesting to see a season of one team made up of players who were removed early due to injury (though none of the ones who fit that description who had already been brought back in prior seasons) or runners up (who hadn't already been brought back) versus a team made up of Naked and Afraid contestants.

I thought Marissa had a rocking bod as well, and pretty much knew as soon as the loved ones lost (even without Uncle Idiot's antics) that she was gone because of the eye candy factor. I HATE that it seems like the best looking women are always the first to go. I would have liked to see more of her personality beyond the reality that her uncle just screwed her out of the game.

I interpreted that as he's not really part of the bromance that the other 4 guys had going on (we saw them on camera together a lot more than with Caleb), not that he's literally "not a guy". And he even said in his one-on-one that he wasn't really that into the guy alliance.

have you considered it's because they kept him at arms length because he was gay? if they hadn't known up front, they'd probably have welcomed him into their alliance. you know how some straight guys are - they can't be seen hangin' out with the gays, someone might get the "wrong impression".

i suspect the reason caleb said he wasn't really into the alliance was because he had already sensed the others apprehension, and knew he'd be the expendable member.

Of course I have... I was posting how I interpreted the Fool Me Twice's post that he's "not a guy", not how the on-screen alliance was developing.

I was confusing Brad Johnson--who I think was a white QB at Minn. with Dante Culpepper, who was black. This guy is neither one of them (obviously)--a defensive player who also was at Minn.

He started his career in Minnesota played 2 years there then played for Tampa Bay for 6 years and finished with 1 in Chicago.

Culpepper's "four guys and a gay guy" comment was indefensible. I am now rooting against him big time.

I predict that Hayden is going to go far in the game. Based on what I remember about him from BB, he's very likable, and good at physical challenges. Survivor is a different game, though, so I guess we'll see.
