    Wow! I feel like I got blindsided! That was incredible!!

    Maybe the best blindside ever, since the audience didn't see it coming either!

    When she grabbed that torch, I was thinking a nice home run swing upside the head.

    Fantastic blindside! I love it. She was starting to annoy me.

    I think a person really shows their true self when they get voted out - especially when blindsided. You can go with grace and class, or you can be bitter and angry and make an ass of yourself.

    What a great Tribal Council. I (along with everyone except Michaela) loved this exchange:

    Michaela to Jay: "Did you do this?"
    Jay: "Yeah, I did. Sorry."
    Hannah: "I did NOT do this"

    Even as it was clear that Mikayla was going to be gone, Hannah is still afraid of her. Too funny. So perfect.

    I thought she sealed her fate when she stated that Figgy's was overdue to go home. As much as I liked her, I don't like sore losers.

    Someone should have "Bye Felicia!"'d her on the way out. :D

    But maybe she only said that in her one-on-one camera interview... I can't remember. :)

    I would not be surprised to see Michaela get a second chance in some future season.

    No, she said it to Jeff in front of everyone when they were assembled for the reward challenge.

    Not sure I agree with the strategy of voting her out, but that was really fun to watch. And I can definitely see the thought process of Jay and Will being a little freaked out that Michaela was going to outsmart them, especially after her whole demonstration with the shells and rocks and how she had the whole game already planned out. For someone who isn't able to think that way, that would be very unsettling.

    I think Michaela is a lock to come back on a future season with returnees.

    I think getting her out before she gets on the jury was smart. She strikes me as the type that would hold a grudge.

    Yep. Everything is all fine when they are in charge and things are happening to others. But when it happens to them ... "that was such a dumb move" or "you idiot"

    One of the best blindsides we've ever seen on the show. They even had me fooled.

    I disagree.

    She wasn't a savvy player at all; witness her immediate alienation from Figgy. She was unable to control her impulses, and made enemies quickly.

    In other words, she's the perfect person to have on your side to help you win challenges, but she will inevitably be voted off at some later point.

    I really liked watching her play, but she had no chance of winning.

    I'm glad she's not on the jury. She's way too sanctimonious.

    She talked about how she "didn't want to be the one doing everything" because that's dangerous (and she's right), but then she does the whole Napoleon thing showing her battle plan with shells and rocks. She did exactly what she said she didn't want to do.
