    Where is everybody?

    Loved the Wicked Step Mother speech. I'm sure people will be divided on it, but I loved it.

    Strange that Reed voted for Jacklyn. Stupid of them to take Nat instead of Keith. What were they thinking?!

    Also loved the multiple times they showed Alec with his mouth open looking like the village idiot :D

    I hate to say it, since I've always disliked the "Twinnies," but I'd have voted for Natalie too. She just plain won that thing.

    I looked up "Ephrata" (which was on the old man's shirt...not Keith, the other old man) and it's a town in Pennsylvania (?)...what's up with that? can't you find something better to wear on national TV?

    his daughter looked like she got a boob job...

    Yeah, though I don't dislike her, I agree that Natalie played the best game, especially at the end. Giving the idol to Jacklyn was probably the biggest move of the game. Though she probably would have had just as good a chance against Baylor as anyone else left, aside from Keith.

    Really entertaining finish.

    My guess is Reed did that to ensure that Missy was third.

    I think Missy was third no matter what. Reed was just being a drama queen (much like he was during that reward challenge when he called Baylor a 'brat' and got into a verbal bout with Missy).

    Missy gave a surprisingly good speech at final Tribal. I was impressed she made as good a case for herself as she did.

    Regarding choosing Natalie over Keith... I think they all knew they were deciding who to give the $1m to at that point and they chose Natalie. They weren't going to beat either of them so they went with someone who deserved it more (which she did by her game play even though Keith was stronger at challenges).

    "village idiot" <--- spot on. :D

    Who won Fan Favorite? I haven't watched that far but don't care if it's spoiled.

    Agree with everyone so far. I thought Natalie was sunk when Jaclyn came out of nowhere and won that last immunity challenge. I was thinking they should know Natalie is going to win if they don't vote her out so I was afraid she was gone. But maybe jradosh is right, it's the only logical explanation. When Jeff polled the jury as to how they would vote if Natalie wasn't in the final 3 Keith wins. I suppose Missy and Jaclyn might have known that and didn't want Keith to win.

    Also agree about Alec. I don't think they ever got a shot of him with his mouth closed. ;)

    How was she third no matter what? Reed knew that both Missy and Jackie were most likely only going to receive one vote each - from their loved ones. His vote put Missy in third.

    Jackie kept saying that she need the $1 million to start a family. Is there an operation to correct her condition? Was she talking about adopting? While I feel bad for her, that is not a reason to vote for someone as the winner of Survivor. And being divorced three times is even less of a reason.

    I don't remember any specific mention now, but in my mind I have "adoption", though surrogacy could be one of their other options. She herself would not be able to bear the child, though.

    Once again Natalie made a big move by orchestrating Baylor's removal from the game. While she probably would have won anyway, it showed how hard she played until the end.

    As I said last week this was of the best Survivor performances ever. Boston Rob, the season he controlled all those young girls, also comes to mind.

    Great job by Natalie.

    Yep, didn't like the Twinnies during TAR, but I thought Nat won this based on game play and about half way through the season, I called it. I have no problem with her winning and she wasn't half as annoying as she was on TAR (maybe, her playing alone was the partner in crime, as they say).

    I was surprised there was no "America's favorite player" this season, but I'm betting they didn't have a sponsor for it. In fact, as far as I could tell there were NO sponsored challenges at all. No Sprint calls from home or food sponsor. Personally, I always hated the "Rupert award" as my son calls it for favorite player. The winner should have the complete spotlight.

    Also noticed that the reunion show has really gotten much shorter. They didn't announce the winner until almost 15 minutes into the 10 o'clock block.

    Not sure about the new season coming up. Seems they are really grasping at straws for a theme this time around. And once again, location doesn't matter any more. Are they back in the same location again?

    Decent season, but not among my favorites.

    Maybe it's just me but I don't think Missy has been divorced 3 times because she's a hopeless romantic.

    As long as there is no RI and no returning players I'm fine with however they want to classify the tribes next season.

    I think Keith's advantage was too much. Considering the learning curve of that challenge, given hours to practice really guaranteed him a win. And he even struggled at the real challenge at the start, but then ended up beating all of them 3-0.
    I think it would've been fairer to do something like just make him get 2 balls in instead of 3. And no practice.

    So glad Natalie won. I too was on the hater bandwagon at the start based on her Amazing Race appearances, but her game play won me over.

    A hopeless romantic who makes poor choices in men.

    Shorter reunion show is fine with me. Since they no longer feel the need to talk with everyone they can get what they want from the main players in a shorter time.

    I was very happy going into the season that it was all new players with no RI. But this season didn't really do it for me. The Blood vs. Water thing was fine but no players will stood out to me as really likeable or unlikeable.

    For the past few years now they have been shooting two Survivor seasons back to back at the same location. It saves them a significant amount of money in doing so. There has even been a player or two that have competed in both seasons back to back. Also means the final 3 or 2 from the second season have to wait a long long time to see who is going to win.
