    I think you meant Tai, Aubry, Joe, and Cydnee. Michelle and Julia were not in on the blindside of Scot.

    Exactly. Tai had already committed to going against his alliance by voting for Scot. There was no way he was giving up the idol at that point.

    In his Ponderosa video...

    He got his family letters and he read the one from his sister, who is apparently in the late stages of breast cancer, chemo isn't working, and it sounds like she has developed congestive heart failure due to it. She was talking about how she knows that he (Scot) will help someone whose name I forget (I assume her husband) take care of her daughters after she is gone. He said it's the first time she's ever talked about death/dying.

    I think this was a great move by Tai.

    The up side was huge; he has an idol and an extra vote, and he has hobbled the alliance that for sure was going to dump him before the final tribal council.

    And the down side was minor. He has alienated Jason, but Jason is in such dire straits now that he will need Tai, and Tai can use him. And I can pretty much guarantee that if Tai is in the final TC, hemgets both Scot's and Jason's votes anyway. Those two are too misogynistic to vote for any of the women.

    This isn't a bad alliance for Aubry and Tai--no votes for Joe, and Cydnee doesn't seem to be so well liked. Aubry is more likely to take Tai to the end than the boys were, and then it's up for grabs between the 2 of them.

    I don't think Aubrey is likely to bring Tai to the final at all. She's a smart player, and she knows how well-liked Tai is. And she also will recognize that Tai is much more likely to get Scott's vote and Jason's vote than she is.

    So Tai's real struggle is at the final four, and how he can get himself to the final three. Winning that immunity challenge is always nice, but he can't bank on that. He's going to have to figure out an alliance that gets him into the final three.

    He could have had a change of heart and used the super idol to effectively change his mind. But I get the sense that Tai is a pretty smart guy, and a quick thinker, and when his name was read, I'm sure he did the math in his head and realized that he was now locked into his choice.

    He was locked into his choice when he chose to vote for Scot. It would be monumentally stupid of him to vote for Scot and then waste his idol to save Scot. I can pretty much guarantee that once Tai voted for Scot, it never even crossed his mind what the ramifications of giving the idol to Scot would be, because he never considered doing it.

    I agree. Why would he vote for Scott and then for any portion of a second consider using his idol to save Scott? That's just crazy talk!:p

    Plus if Tai voted with the boys, Aubry would have three votes and he wouldn't be in this position.

    I saw this coming, but with different names.

    I thought Tai was going to get the most votes and Scot and Jason were going to refuse to safe him.

    Jason and Scot had already made it clear that they were going to be voting Tai off soon, so even if he didn't know it, sticking with them was not the best move.

    I'm also surprised that once Scot realized he was going that he didn't give the idol he had to Jason before leaving. It seemed like he had an opportunity to do so.

    I think once the votes are read you're officially out of the game and you're not allowed to interact with the other contestants, including giving them an idol.

    What I'm wondering is if anyone knows Scot took the idol with him! It didn't look like anyone was around when Jason handed it over: maybe everyone still thinks Jason has his idol... that would be powerful.

    I'm not saying Tai should have put all his trust in the Jason/Scot alliance and expected to sit in the final three with them. But I think sticking with them for a couple more votes would have been smarter. I don't think Tai's new alliance has any intention of letting him get to the end, either.

    Once Probst said "The __th person voted out of the game, and __th member of the jury, is Scot" the idol in Scot's possession became worthless, except if it were combined with another to form the Super Idol. Jason made a bad decision letting Scot hold it, because Jason could have kept it and played it for Scot if necessary, but it couldn't have been taken out of the game.

    My wife ran the Big Sur marathon today, while we were waiting near the finish line who comes running by but Tai, he finished in 4:17 which was pretty respectable because they said the wind was probably worst than any year but one.

    My prediction for next one leaving the Island? The chicken.

    I can't see Jason NOT making that their next meal!

    It's such a bad decision that I am wondering if there is some rule we don't know about. Like it can only be played for one of the 2 people actually holding the HII when it is combined.

    As someone said earlier, the smart play would have been to give both halves to Jason since there was zero chance he was going home.
