    I am with you there. I don't get there extreme hate for her, unless they are editing something out that has made everyone hate her. At this point I though everyone would have wanted to bring her to the finals since they all know she will get no votes to win.

    Maybe Sierra thought she was hot stuff having an alignment with the most popular player.

    Survivor is doing a good job of keeping interesting players in the contest. There is little question that they can nearly control who leaves based on the challenges.

    And what about Erinn voting for Stephen? I can't remember a move like that. Sort of interesting... does that put her in better position? Could be brilliant or might blow up.

    I don't know, Fairplay was a genius player. He should have won.

    I'm much more likely to believe that the people who have to live with each other 24 hours a day have a better idea of who is hard to get along with than those of us who only see 45 minutes out of 72 hours worth of footage.

    Based on that, I think we could assume that Sierra got a favorable edit and that Coach is getting a really brutal edit, as Sierra has been disliked from the get go, while there has been very little talk amongst the players about voting out Coach.

    Exactly. The producers can make anyone "good" or "bad" whenever they want. They are trying to create a story they feel will keep viewers tuned in. And being able to edit and splice together a few minutes of clips out of hours of footage makes it easy to do.

    I get a kick out of viewers who despise coach and think they know all about him. He's a character on a TV show made out to be what the producers want him to be. Just like a WWE wrestler. :)

    jeff/contestants should start calling him his real name...which is.....:confused:

    i think the difference is that fairplay, ambers boyfriend etc all , while in the diary room, were telling the camera they hey, i'm lying my ass off and these people are buying it...coach on the other hand is the same away from the other guests as with them.

    i guess you could say he's 'staying in character' though ;)

    That's how I see it. But I see the same limited/edited clips as everyone else. Maybe coach in "real life" is exactly like coach in the game. Could be. But I certainly can't proclaim to know that for sure. It's just as likely he's trying to milk his 15 minutes as much as he can in hopes of generating some kind of post Survivor career (and any post Survivor career is a longshot to be sure).

    I agree with all of this.

    I keep thinking that if I were a contestant this season and had witnessed how badly some of the other players have treated her, I would be so turned off that I would likely break any alliance I had with them. That's why I wouldn't be good at this game. I care too much about how people treat others and get treated themselves.

    Plus, has anyone else done a Google Image Search on Sierra? I'd probably be befriending her, and she's the type of person to appreciate it.

    I was really hoping Sierra would stay in... Like others, I felt she really got the raw end of this season... The editing showed a lot of her irritating whining, but I think in reality she seems like she is a really sweet person...

    Yeah there is a world of difference between model Sierra and Survivor Sierra. If she could have played up her looks into a social game perhaps she would have lasted longer.

    Yes and Sierra has been treated most unjustly as well maybe more than any Survivor. Take that along with idiot coach, voting off Brendan and I am watching the most unenjoyable Survivor to date.

    Sierra when confronting Coach and Debbie in front of the group actually showed some smarts and backbone. Too bad she is just too nice and too laid back, but that is how it goes. And as far as Debbie she is an evil *****. I thought I disliked coach the most, but after seeing Debbie's reaction to being caught in a lie and her fake ass tears she disgusts me. I hope she goes next. Had jackass not won the II he would have been voted off, then Debbie. What a mess. Now for all I care, coach, debbie and erin could be at the final three as I have no interest in seeing any one win over the others.

    I am the type that would have gone against the grain and called him Ben for a reality check and then said you remind me of that Michael Jackson song Ben from the movie about the rat. :D What a jerk.

    I just watched Ponderosa with Sierra. You know, maybe letting coach go to the final three would be the best thing, because that Mother Fer will ruin Ponderosa. He is the kind of guy where if everyone is getting along and being adults yet having fun and he walks in....party over!

    Yeah, the Ponderosa videos are a lot of fun. Tyson is hilarious (a natural on camera), and Sierra has a much brighter personality now that she's not under the threat of elimination, and Brendan is just a good dude (he's so kind that he let Sierra sleep with him--what a guy!).

    Debbie was pretty blatant. Along with the tears was the hand coming up, saying "This conversation is OVER." Just DENYING any chance of Sierra accusing her further, 'cause she knows any more and she would have been totally outed.

    Debbie acts like a spoiled little kid who, when losing at a game, just tips over the board and says "I'm not playing anymore!!" She must just get used to having her way as a HS Principal or something.

    Yes can you imagine her at school if you are a student. She said to Sierra in a dismissive tone, your only 23, I am 46...blah, blah, blah... yet another control freak and these are the people that are running the world, raising our kids. Yikes, scary. I mean sure we all have our faults and days, well, except women they are perfect, but besides them, really Debbie is an ass and if I was a parent and got into it with her, it would get ugly as I have zero patience for her kind in that mode. I might dislike her more than coach, because she comes across as sweet. Coach just comes across as unbelievable and belligerent...well, arrogant, egotistical, self absorbed, delusional. See that is why I dislike Debbie more as least she isn't delusional which could be viewed as an excuse to justify his pathetic game he played.
