    I thought he has one more chance to use it - next tribal council. Good until the final 4 which would be the next one and they kept saying he could use it until day 36.

    I always thought it was risky to do a final 3. Did they ever say what would happen if it goes to a final 3 and there is a tie in the voting? Do they drop the lowest person and re-vote between the final two right then and there? Do they split the million? Have a fire-off at the live reunion show? lol If Russell or Brett is in the final 3 I don't see a chance of a tie, but if it is a final 3 of Natalie, Jaison, and Mick I see a good chance.

    The tribe said a few times during their discussions at camp that last night was the last time to use it, and Jeff made of point of emphasizing that same fact at tribal council.

    He has SUCH a easy way out of this come the final.
    He comes out and says he is rich and if they vote for him he will split 50% or all of his winnings with the people who voted for him. (Assuming that is allowed) Not like he needs the money. He just wants to win!

    Why is it that everyone believes that Brett is an automatic winner if he gets to the final three just because he's galu? Have you watch these games recently. They almost always vote the best player, unless there is some personal grudge. How can ANYONE say that Russell hasn't been the best player? He orchestrated the Galus getting taken out one by one.

    One of my favorite statements ever in Survivor history.

    Yup, like bryhamm said, this is disallowed. I believe if it is discovered that you had any sort of agreement to split the winnings with other players, you forfeit the money. I'm not sure how Tina and Colby got around that in Australia when they agreed the winner would buy the loser a car (or motorcycle, if I remember correctly).

    Russell has told so many lies that it will be easy for him to say that his admission of wealth was a lie. The jury isn't going to know what's true and what is a lie when it comes to Russell.

    I think Brett would get a lot of votes, but not sure he'd get enough to win over Russell. I think Eric will hold a grudge against Brett for going with the crowd and voting Eric out and then dissing Eric's high five. Not sure if the others from Brett's tribe will be happy that he made it or mad that he made it and they didn't?

    I'm wondering if the reason Brett hasn't received a 'winner's edit' is because all he talks about is Bible verses?

    I think this has been the best season in a long time. I've really enjoyed watching. Will be very sorry to see it end on Sunday night.

    Well, we witnessed the "Powah of Prayah!" at that challenge, didn't we?

    If they vote Russel and Brett off, who gets it? That's a tough call.

    I dont think its a gimme to Brett if him and Russell both make the finals, but it depends on his speech. We know Russell can sway people. The question is can Brett.

    If Brett makes it there, by definition he is a survivor. People have been gunning for him for a couple weeks. Other then that though, he didnt even play enough of the game to be on the show other then the credits.

    Sometimes the universe is like that. Sort of like the Patriots going 16 - 0 and then losing in the Superbowl. It ain't right, but it happens. :)

    I would argue that Pavarti over Amanda and Bob over Sugar were not 'best' player votes. Sugar was somewhat crazy, sure, but Bob did almost nothing to get himself to that final 3.

    I think the Galus would feel vindicated that one of their own won, beating the odds against those nasty FoaFoas to get to the end. I don't think it would be a contest.

    Though I did like Jeff's call for the HII, my favorite moment at tribal--Dave rolling his eyes when Shambo got voted out. I'm guessing Dave won't be thrilled to have Shambo at Ponderosa.:D

    Brett finally speaks, and man is he boring, he even made the smoking hot Natalie boring.

    Hatch will always be the greatest simply cause he figured it all out without help. Everyone since then has been following his lead.

    Having said that, Russell is the best player of the game using that strategy including Hatch.

    Jaison has to realize now that his ONLY chance of winning is to get rid of Russell, and NOW. Jaison could easily go to Brett and Mick and have the votes he needs to get rid of Russell. If Jaison doesn't create a game-changing blindside, then at best he's a coattail rider, and juries tend to hate coattail riders. And no one is going to blame him for blindsiding Russell - everyone (except Shambo, who seems to have a crush on him or something) would be looking to high-five him for it.

    Down to a final four of Jaison, Brett, Mick and Natalie, Natalie has very little chance of winning the final immunity (unless the challenge is solely a balance challenge).

    In that scenario, Mick is probably the odd man out in the final. Jaison focuses on telling the jury about playing a good, aggressive, honest game and then "killing the rat" the first chance he got. Brett plays on old tribal unity and his challenge winning streak. Brett probably wins in that case, but it's the only chance Jaison has.

    But Hatch was also playing with clueless players, Russell did it against players that had knowledge of how things work. That bumps Russell past Hatch in my mind. I'm also willing to bet Russell will pay taxes on any money won.

    Shambo left with a lot of class. I will miss her.

    I agree with this.

    Also, I think it was a dumb move to vote Shambo out. I suspect Russ went along because he didn't want to ruffle Jaison's feathers.
