    That was a great moment!

    I also loved his little bit of solo camera time when he was very lucid and seemed to know just what was going on.

    It sure seems like there will be one big challenge to get back in the game for those on RI. I like that.

    Unless a guy weighed 100 pounds, a girl was going to win that hanging challenge. I would have taken the food as well. Very nice "scenery" of the girls during that challenge, though :up: :D

    I think they had 2 TCs because they always get more people to start the game since they have to account for people quitting during the game.

    Now that Ometepe has a big number advantage, this is the time when they turn at each other because they can "spare" going down one person. I can't imagine this alliance holding until they are down to 6.

    But the cockiness is only when doing the solo interviews. That doesn't bother me.

    Yeah, that was very surprising to me. Good for Philip.

    Me too..

    Rob had some "Russellness" in him last night.. THIS IS MY GAME!!!
    Although he is playing a way better game than Russell ever has.

    I also felt a little off towards Rob. I mean I love him and this episode almost made me root against him. And when I say love, I mean as much as a Yankee fan could ever love a Red Sox fan. :D

    I thought the hanging challenge and the subsequent TC were the same day. Steve ate a bunch of burgers and then when eating the fish said something about how hungry he was because he only had eaten a cup of rice. Maybe I'm getting things mixed up.

    True to a point. Dictating that his tribe not eat the fish and having the "buddy system" because he doesn't trust anyone on his tribe being alone is kind of cocky too. I agree he's careful what he says around the others but his actions say "I'm cocky" :)

    The buddy system I don't mind because it really does help all of them. It helps him more though, but still.

    The thing about the fish was just kooky to me. Might have been a bit too much as it could leave a sour taste in the mouths of his own group.

    To me Grant is the wildcard. He's good in challenges. But beyond that I have no clue. We never hear much out of him. He's either really dumb or really boring or both. It could be he decided to ride with Rob as far as he could and then make a move. But you'd think if that was his plan we would have heard something about it.

    Me too.
    If Philip makes it to the end, I want him to win. He may be crazy, but I'm beginning to like his brand of crazy.

    Was that their fishing net or something that just washed ashore? I certainly wouldn't (normally) want to eat fish that had died in some washed up fishing net and they did look pretty stiff.

    Yeah I was unclear about the net too. It seemed so random and seemed like a surprise. Did they have their own net and had just never caught anything with it before and now all of a sudden there were a bunch of fish in it?

    Ralph said it was their fishing net. IIRC, Rob said the fish had been there for 3 hours.

    For those of you that play the Fantasy League (didn't have TCF team this year) I got a perfect bonus for 1185 pts last night.

    Buddy system is an amazing idea. Rob has learned his lesson. Love the idea of not deciding who gets picked until last minute, just in case there is a HII in play.

    Philip was great last night. He shut down the other tribe that is great.

    I can't view at work but Dalton's blog has a deleted scene where he says that Boston Rob explains why he wouldn't eat the fish. If anyone watches that, please post what he says in that clip.

    btw...how could Brob NOT have a big head at this point? He is playing absolutely perfectly and has every aspect accounted for (at this point in the game).

    Sleeping seperately, eating seperately, buddy system, no strategy till TC....amazing. Of course Rob was extremely lucky to get the people he did on his tribe. I don't think this would work most of the time.

    His challenge will be after the Us vs Them has been fullfilled and he now becomes the target. He better have his Philip, Natalie, & Grant alliance locked up tight!

    He says it is because it has been sitting in the sun for 2 hours and he doesn't want to risk getting sick. He says there is other stuff to eat - rice and such, so the fish was not life or death. If it had been fresh caught a few minutes ago then sure, he would have eaten some, but not after being in the sun for 2 hours (and then repeats this a couple more times).

    He speaks in a very quiet, serious way, it is interesting. No smiles, no jokes.

    Interesting. I know Steve made the comment about "living on a cup of rice" but lack of food doesn't seem to be an issue at all compared to earlier seasons.
