    That was a fairly ho-hum episode.

    The highlight was the debut of the bikinis. Also liked Cochran's new alliance with Jim and the old lady (what's her name?), but we didn't get to see if that will play out or not.

    I was impressed with 'lil Hantz at the weight challenge, but more impressed by the two ladies. :up:

    For a few minutes there I would've liked to trade places with Ozzie. That hammock looked awfully comfortable. :)

    one thing I forgot to mention last week is that there was one female in a bikini while everyone else was in their underwear. I found that strange.

    Jim stayed in his underwear after they gave put the bathing suits. I found that even stranger!

    I would have much rather seen them vote out Edna. This was yet another case of a strong player being voted out because they didn't make the right friends on Day 1.

    I found it a sort of boring episode. The inner dynamics of the tribes are just not reaching me like they have in the past. Made as the tribes get smaller or after the merge.

    I am glad that Christine won again at RI. I think next with her against Stacy it will be very interesting as they are more evenly matched.

    I thought the same thing. I don't remember seeing him at all.

    Which means that he will make it far in the game. The editors had a lot of time to work him in.

    Either that or he's really really boring.

    it doesn't mean he will be interesting, though. He could be in the final 6 or 7 then have an ep with his moment in the sun and go away quietly. But you can already tell who is going to last a long time. There are a few people who have not said 2 words to the camera so far.

    I have to say I'm liking Coach this season. It appears he's dropped the persona and is actually playing the game this time.

    I liked when Coach got all in Brandon's face about playing the game and telling that he said this to so and so and that so and so said that about someone. I was cheering Coach on and hoping he would tell Brandon the alliance was done.

    He didn't get butt hurt when Brandon said he got voted out in previous games. I don't know if Coach will mind losing, but he would like to make it far and would be very happy if a member of his alliance makes it far.

    Edna is cute, but so annoying. She starting panicking and wouldn't stop trying to 'connect' with everyone. That was pretty funny to see the eye rolls everywhere.

    I do give her props for trying though. You can see she was devestated when Branden told her she wasn't part of the group. She could have easily self destructed but instead, she realized that she better do something to get into the group.

    I thought both teams screwed up when they kept adding weight to the last 2 guys. At that point, they had enough weight and time was gonna get em any way. They should have been adding to the women at that point.

    I like coach this season too. Maybe they are just giving him a more likable edit. He was absolutely right about not believing anyone who is on "death row".

    We've seen Rick many times. How can you forget a moustache like that?
