    Can't believe I'm the first to post about the show? Does anyone care anymore? :p

    I thought it was a decent finale. Not too exciting, but entertaining. I would have been content with any of the final 4 winning, but was rooting for Malcolm.

    Looking forward to next season already.

    This might be the first Iowan to win. Woo hoo!

    Like you, I would have been happy with any of them but was rooting for Malcolm. I got the vibe he was dating someone from the show when he clarified his "best relationship" comment, but I guess not.

    I think Abi in that dress should have won the million dollars.

    I was rooting for Lisa, so I'm glad she got the fan favorite award.

    I question whether 'the kiss' was spontaneous. They tried to make it seem that way, but I'd bet it was discussed beforehand.

    I thought that all 3 did a decent job in front of the jury - no major gaffes. I lost some respect for Penner. Way too bitter for my taste, and no reason to out Lisa like that, other than to try to sway the rest of the jury.

    Penner turned out to be a bitter bore.

    I do wish finalists would tell the sermonizers to shut up and sit down. It would likely win as many votes as it lost.

    The cast list for next season is out there and

    Malcom is one of the returning favorites. Which means when Probst asked him if he would play again, he already had.

    What was up with Malcolm's "Stop! Don't nod your head!" thing to Denise?

    Not looking forward to next season with that cast. Yawn.

    Abi is my favorite (with the sound turned down).

    I'm used to bitter and resentful and the final tribal but Penner was a total ******.

    Also didn't like having just one elim in 2 hours. But we did get the "Fallen Comrades" walk. Wow that's always fun.

    At least Denise and/or Malcom were actually able to say something about each person, some seasons the Final 3 have no clue about some of the early castoffs.

    I was fine with the outcome, although I was hoping for Lisa to win (but wasn't expecting it. Glad she got both a vote and the Favorite Survivor.)

    I lost a lot of respect for Penner. For a man who prides himself in playing Survivor, revealing Lisa's secret at the final TC was just a d-bag move. It would have been one thing to reveal it while he was still in the game, but it was done ONLY to sway the jury against her. He didn't even allow her to reveal it, he HAD to do it himself. At least she, somewhat, was able to make a save by asking if he talk all about his childhood.

    I wonder if Abi really did learn anything about herself or was she just saying that?

    Regarding the spoiler about next season
    How can Malcom be on a Fans vs. Favorites so soon? No one will know who he is, since next season was probably filmed just as this season was getting started.

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why Malcolm did not take Denise up on her offer of an alliance to the final three. If he had and convinced Denise to vote for Lisa, he would have won the game. If Lisa and Skupin split their vote, it would have been Malcolm, Denise, and Skupin. If Lisa and Skupin voted for Malcolm as they did last night, there would have been a tie, and I'm pretty sure Malcolm could have beaten Lisa. As it was, Malcolm screwed himself out of a million dollars. If he'd have made it to the final three, he would have won hands down. For such a seemingly smart player, he made a big mistake at the end.

    i FF thru some of this this morning to prevent spoilers and i'm glad i wasnt realllly into the show. midway thru the marble contest, which i was watching in its entirety, some kind of weird signal glitch sent me to waaay beyond that...very weird

    when you are shinier than a bald guys head, you have some serious facial issues..did she shine that much even during the show itself? abi just has what i call angry face..her natural state is looking fiercely angry and it's a big turn off

    also noticed RC had quite the superiority complex during the final tribal...her demeanor and body language was just so telling.

    the congrats to denise on the way out of being voted off was right on the money though!

    I am glad that Denise won. I think she played a great game - better than Malcolm.

    I was surprised with Penner's reaction and him voting for Denise. I know he was probably mad that Lisa voted him out, but she should have pointed out that she asked him to be in the Final 4 and he didn't want to commit!

    I was bummed about Malcolm's appearance at the reunion show. :) He looked way hawter all island scruffy. ;)

    I didn't watch much of the reunion show---did Jeff ask the jury how they would have voted if it were Lisa, Skoopin and Abi in the final 3?

    Oh my god, I just watched the Malcolm Ponderosa videos and Penner does an on camera interview about the final tribal where he says he's interested to find out how the alliance of Lisa and Skupin decided to work with Malcolm and Denise, and how/when he and Carter were cut out.

    Dude! She asked you right on the beach to commit to a final 4 and you said no! How can you not know when they decided to cut you out?

    No, but he did ask how they would have voted if Malcolm was there with and without Denise, and it was a little confusing. The second question, who wins between Denise and Malcolm if they're both there was a little clearer and Denise still won, but the original question was worded a little confusingly and I think was supposed to be "does Malcolm win if he's in the final with Lisa and Skupin" and only 2 people raised their hands, one of which was Lisa. :confused: :) So, it sounds like either Lisa or Skupin (probably Lisa) would have been richer if they'd made a better final 3 choice!

    I always feel the jury lies when asked the "who would you have voted for if" scenarios to further stick it to the people they're angry at or to justify their actual votes.

    I was really surprised when Penner outed Lisa, but chuckled when she asked what he did 20 years ago....I was waiting for her to out him as an actor also. I don't know if she ever knew - can't recall if he told her. That would have been amusing.
