    The game is to win, not deserve to win. At least they are more engaging that Sandra or Vecepia were. Neither of them did anything other than not pissing anyone off.

    I think Taj, in the middle of the game, was one of the masterminds of the "cross tribe" alliance with Stephen (I think) when they were on Exile together. That alliance led to the power change after the merge. So , you could argue that she did something that makes her "worthy". Erin on the other hand, i don't think has done anything but "follow the leader" until last night when she called out Coach.

    I think Taj and Erinn are exactly like Sandra and Vecepia. Overall this one of the most uninteresting final 4's in the series.

    So long dragon slayer.

    I do wonder if JT knew Stephen was voting Coach. If not, their alliance could be in trouble.

    Why didn't Taj use her hidden immunity idol? If it was the last week she could use it, why not use it? It hurts nothing.

    That would require thought.

    Some would say that Stephen had it anyway.

    I liked Erinn's comment when voting, "Dragon Slain". Though, it was actually the Dragon Slayer slain, but I still liked it! :)

    I had forgotten all about Ponderosa, I'm watching some of the clips now.

    If Ponderosa is for jury members, where do the first 7 people to get voted off go?

    The look on JT's face told me he didn't know Stephen was voting for Coach. My bet is Stephen and Taj are tight. They will go after JT next if he doesn't win immunity. Probably would have last night except JT won immunity. JT needs to get Erinn on his team and maybe force a tie at the next Tribal.

    To me, the editing after the vote of JT's face showed that he didn't know. It appeared to me that he had a look on his face that he didn't really expect that to happen.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I kind of liked Coach. He is a tool of the first order - no doubt - but he played a good game and he has been pretty true to his alliances throughout. I don't think he deserved to win, but I wouldn't have been upset if he did.

    Stephen implied that JT knew how he was voting. JT was keeping a promise to coach, and had to appear like it was a shock to him too if he wants to keep that vote locked up.

    So far, JT is the only one playing to the Jury. Hes been nice to coach, he was decent to Sierra when every one else was mean. He is setting up the final tribal well. All I can guess is Stephen is either good with getting 2nd, or else he intends to get rid of JT next.

    I also could not believe the idol wasnt used. It was the last time it could be. If I were Steven, I would have voted for Erinn too, but have Taj give her the idol. Then he saves face with Coach too.

    If either Stephen or Taj had played the idol it would mean that they thought someone in their alliance had turned against them. It's a big sign saying "I don't trust you". It's difficult to stay tight in an alliance when you're publicly showing that you don't trust the others. NOT playing the idol was a good strategic move; playing it could have been a disaster.

    The old give up the idol but we won't vote for you scam. Worked before but I don't see it working in this case. Taj is a bit too paranoid for that.

    I believe the idol wasn't used because Stephen and Taj could not come to agreement as to which of them would use it. I'd bet they agreed to leave it at camp so neither could use it.

    Coach does not have a ruptured disk. His buddy was cracking his back like a chiropractor just a couple days ago, and you NEVER do that with a ruptured disk. He's just a drama queen.

    And, the reason he didn't want medical is because he was afraid they'd tell him there was nothing wrong with him, physically anyway.

    Anyone recall the conversations here when JT, Taj & Stephen went along with Tyson and Coach to vote out Brenden? It's pretty much played out as I called it a month ago.

    I a few weeks back if a significantly outnumbered tribe took complete control of the game as Jalapao has? This season has certainly been interesting from that respect.

    I, too, thought they were trying to make Coach look like Christ on the cross.

    Of course he should have. Jeff is thrilled every time Coach opens his mouth, because it just means more gold for the editors to work with. Coach is a tool of the highest order, but he's great for a reality show like this.
    In the past, those people have gone on trips or just been housed at other locations until everyone goes home together.
    Yeah, Jalapao came to the Merge at a 4-6 disadvantage, and then they immediately lost Joe with the medical evacuation. So they were down 3-6 and now they're up 3-1. That's pretty incredible, and shows how poorly Timbira planned this thing. Taking out Brenden first, and including Jalapao members in their "Warrior Alliance" was their biggest mistake.

    Did anyone else notice Coach's double spine? Paraphrasing: My right vertabra is ruptured and the one one the left is about to go too.

    That ain't a dragon slayer, that's an alien.
