    Good start to the season. Seems like some very interesting players. I'm definitely rooting for Anna, the poker player, to stay on my TV as long as possible.

    When Jennifer was complaining about ear pain, I first wondered if she was just being dramatic, but then it was clear she was in real agony. Do then when the bug came crawling out of her ear and was basically just dancing around, I was yelling at the camera guy to brush it off! How could the camera guy see how much pain she was in, see the bug crawl out, and then just film it while it might potentially go back in? That's just cruel.

    Interesting that on both the Brains and Beauty tribes, the old people are on the outs. I won't be sad if crazy Denise goes early, but the two guys seem like they could be fun to watch.

    Too bad for Darnell. I think that was short sighted of his team to vote him out for one poor challenge performance. They're going to miss his strength in future challenges. It's almost never smart to vote out physical strength this early in the season.

    I kept wondering why she wouldn't call for medical? If something is eating way at my ear and causing it to bleed, I'd get them down right away. If it was serious enough to be pulled, then so be it.

    I think Darnell lost the game when he threw out his sob story at tribal. That may have worked a few seasons ago, but not now.

    AHHHH! That bug was like something straight out of The Wrath of Khan. :eek:

    I also did not understand at all why they voted out Darnell instead of Blondie.

    My daughter had a moth fly into her ear late one night. We could not get it out; it didn't hurt, like this one apparently did, but she could feel it fluttering around in there. We tried to get it out in various ways including ultimately oil... it stayed in there and drowned. We had to take her to the doctor the next day to get it out (we had offered to take her to the ER but she didn't want to go--we've had mixed experiences going to the ER). To this day she's freaked out by moths... I would think everyone would be wearing their buffs over their ears from now on, although that bug looked small enough to get under.

    Bad, bad mistake getting rid of Darnell IMO. Now you're down a player and one of your remaining players is Alecia.

    I cannot believe that Joe is 71. He's got to be doing steroids or something... crazy!

    Tai was dumb, trying to do a full search for the idol in one shot. Just pretend you have a little stomach upset, and go look for shorter periods of time.

    I loved it when Alecia said she was a mental giant at tribal, then forgot to take the cap off the marker when she tried to vote!

    I think you guys mean Alechia. ;)

    Bounty Hunter Guy's card cracked me up.

    Edit: I guess his might have been Alichia... I'm not sure now. I was too busy laughing at the "chia" part. :)

    I never saw so many alternate spellings for Alecia. :)

    I thought Darnell made a decent case for staying, he admitted to screwing up and pointed out how he rowed and helped lift the canoe and she was basically useless the whole challenge. She had to be yelled out to help take out the puzzle pieces. I think it was a dumb decision to vote him out.

    I looked up Scot's career earnings in the NBA, he was a bench player his whole career and averaged a little over 4 points a game and made 38 million. Good work if you can get it.

    Yeah, that's why I didn't get why they voted him out. Everyone seemed really annoyed by Alecia, she's weak, doesn't do anything... but they still went with the guy who admitted he f'd up and dropped the mask?

    And as they were throwing her a bone and telling her she was safe she was being sketchy.

    Yeah, I only vaguely knew who he was because he played for the Celtics his last year and they won the championship that year.

    The girl who had the panic attack is in Boston now, but she grew up not too far away from here in NH.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. WTF!! They're telling you you're safe and making plans with you to vote out someone else, and then when they ask if you have the Idol you give a squirrelly answer? If you have it and don't want them to know, just lie and tell them you don't. But NEVER say something stupid like "I never said I did but I never said I didn't."

    I thought she would be first to go when that tribe lost but she did real well in the challenge.

    It took me about 30 seconds to start hating the chemist on the Brains tribe. I had hoped they'd lose and vote her out first. Since that didn't happen, now I'm hoping one of her tribemates smothers her while she's sleeping.

    I like Tai, though I found it a bit odd that, after claiming to love all plants and trees, he seemed to have no problem ripping those trees out of the ground to find the HII.

    Liz, on the Brains tribe, is far more beauteous than anybody on the Beauty tribe.

    She said she was a chemist and also worked at Red Lobster and I believe the caption with her name said "server" or "waitress" or something like that so I don't know if she's actually a chemist or maybe took chemistry in high school.

    Tai was entertaining the first minute or so but I quickly got tired of him and hope he goes soon

    Jeff said in the interview he thinks they all wanted Darnell out but split the vote in case there was an idol. I agree with others in this thread, dumb decision. Yeah he messed up with the goggles but he DID help in other ways while Alecia did nothing at all. I like Joe the FBI guy. Hard to believe he's 71 (now 72)

    I was shocked by the 'aqua dump'. That was really close to the camp! If they were going to use the water for that, I'd hope they'd go to an area that was away from camp and in some fast-moving water.
