    How is that a mistake? I think he did that on purpose to up his value to the tribe.

    Yeah, but then you better deliver, which he didn't do. It puts all the weight on his shoulders.

    It was my understanding that they couldn't cook rice because there was too much rain to build a fire. Skupin was eating raw rice because they couldn't cook it.

    I figured it was simply a matter of wanting to save one of their stronger players for the Immunity Challenge.
    I know you're somewhat joking, but it is sometimes very frustrating that they leave so much of the game play out of the show in favor of showing more Tribal Council. The producers and editors would like viewers to believe that the tribes go into TC with an open mind and decide who to vote for based on what's said during Jeff's questioning. But in reality, what's said at TC has probably only swayed a couple votes over the past 25 seasons. In 99% of the cases, every player knows exactly who they're voting for before they arrive to TC, and that doesn't change no matter what's said at TC. I wish the editing of the show would reflect that, rather than trying to make it a mystery when it's not.

    I was bummed to see Katie go. She's gorgeous. I would have liked having her on my TV for several more weeks.

    Sad indeed, but as long as RC is there, I'm happy happy happy!

    Eating the raw rice was dumb.

    Actually wasn't joking at all - you did a more eloquent job of making my point :)

    And sorry I keep bringing Big Brother into the conversation, but it's just like you said there - the most useless 30-60 seconds on TV is when the 2 nominees stand up and "make their case" why they shouldn't be evicted - it's 100% foregone long before that so really no point in bothering

    Kalabaw got the best end of that deal, albeit ia small advantage. There was only a small amount of rice availabe but Tandang didn't know that - I expect they anticipated much more. They really only aquired enough for one additional day. Meanwhile Kalabaw lost out on that additional day of rice but they had, presumably, more high calorie, high protein and more satisfying food for the one day.

    I'm not sure I like the deal-making instead of completion of the challenge. But I believe the producers jumped at the turn of events. The game was at a standstill for one hour. Not very good TV and they could have edited something together but I suspect the crew was getting tired and the challenge turned out to be a huge mistake.

    That girl annoys me. She sits out challenges, is obnoxious and mean and whines about everything. She'll be kept around though because she probably has no chance of winning...She'd be good to bring to the finals.

    They don't just suspect it. Penner told Jeff Kent that he had it.

    The immunity challenge was poorly thought out to even allow such a stalemate. I bet it would have been better if they were not allowed to tackle each other.

    They should have had one or both hands tied behind their backs.

    My sister and I were talking about it and she said if you were allowed to, she would have started tickling someone.

    In Jeff's Q&A (linked above), he said the problem was there was too much mud, so the players were sliding and couldn't get any traction.
