Great list. Reading that just goes to prove that anyone who goes into playing Survivor trying to win by playing a wholesome honest game is kidding themselves.

I would not consider the last paragraph to be a spoiler at all.
Not spoilerizing this

jeff says something happens.

Ok, he says slighty more than that. Barely.

I'd agree. Plus sometimes this sort of thing is more hyperbole than anything. I think we've heard him say this for about the last 10 seasons

I wouldn't put Ozzy's move in the top five. Jeff stated that if he had made it to the final three, the move would have won him the game. The fact of the matter is that it didn't really accomplish much. The other four were all great moves, though. Say what you will about Russel, but the guy was pretty amazing at manipulating people.

Except there have been a lot of great moves that ended up with the person not winning. It got Ozzie probably deeper into the game than he would have had he stayed. The risk of course is that just ONE of those challenges didn't play to his strengths, and he lost. I'm thinking that Ozzie saw he was going to go out early and it was his best chance to stay longer in the game, and he was right.

Other great moves I thought about...

Johnny Fairplay's dead/dying (I forget) Grandma play
Rupert stealing stuff on the first day of his first Survivor, which endeared him to us fans that season (and won him a million dollars by being the "fan favorite"

I'm not saying it was a bad move, it just hardly seems worthy of such a high ranking.

I agree but a few people on here are very spoiler sensitive about everything

As I said in the ep thread, if that's what he's referring to, then meh. I figured Brad was going to get his sooner rather than later. This did not surprise me all that much. This isn't even in the discussion with what the article mentions
