    Yeah... She hesitated and Rob seemed almost too anxious to sweeten the deal... He should have waited for her to formally decline before offering up a better deal IMHO... I don't think anyone has truly tried to negotiate with Rob or Sandra yet...

    I think Rob was so excited to think someone would negotiate with him he leaped at it :).

    I think it's less than 50/50. Kellee surprised me with her acting. Noura is a known nutter and loose cannon, I'll bet you Kellee can talk around that without much effort, saying Noura misunderstood or got it wrong or whatever.

    In any event, if the merge comes soon then no one will be worried about that anymore.

    I was really impressed with Kellee here. She had a plan, she executed it perfectly, and she got out with no obvious fingerprints. I was also surprised when they showed Noura as the second vote for Jack. Only Noura could be so naive as to agree to vote Jack in case Dean had an idol, instead of the obvious vote: Karishma. Meanwhile Kellee is shocked that Dean has an idol, and shocked that Noura voted for Jack... Kellee certainly voted for Dean just as planned!

    Ah! Interesting. I spent the entire first half of the show anticipating the reaction of Lairo when they saw that Jason had been voted out... and nothing! Bummer.

    It will be interesting to see if Kellee really does get out of this without any blow-back. Noura seemed to have some confusion about why Dean wouldn't have played his idol last week.

    He could just give the obvious answer that he found it this week.

    Yes, maybe. However, though it's a week for us, it was only a couple days for him. And he might feel like he can get more out of telling the secret to others than he does by staying aligned with Kellee, especially if Noura clicks to being played. Granted, that's a long shot. :p

    Here's an interesting "secret scene" that proves that Rob and Sandra are legitimately living out there in less than ideal conditions ...

    I was wondering what happened to her wrists.

    Can't see the facebook thing from above, but I noticed the bandages on her wrists. So, what happened?

    She had an allergic reaction to something she touched while out there, and she has 4-5 huge blisters on her hands.

    If you want to watch the scene, google Survivor Sandra Contact Dermatitis and it will take you to a public site.

    I'm guessing they paid Rob and Sandra a lot of money to participate on this season. Even though they aren't technically competing, it still takes a physical toll to be living out there, especially at their age. Because of this, they will most likely come into the all winners season more tired than the rest of the returnees. They could even potentially get sick or injured and be forced to miss season 40. Because of this, I wouldn't be surprised if they both have something in their contracts that not only pays them for this season, but also guarantees them a lot of money for next season even if they have to drop out or can't compete at all.
