    She's from NJ? I had no idea!

    Michelle is definitely playing a good game, and I think she's getting the kind of edit that a winner would have. You can feel the redemption arc with her confessionals. My prediction is that she makes it very far.

    I'm thinking the Sara/Sophie combo will go far.

    She’s also getting the same edit that she got when she won. Lots of confessionals despite the fact that she’s not really controlling anything.

    I’m still excited to see what Kim can do, but the pre merge episodes don’t really point to her having a huge role.

    In last week's thread I said Sandra would be too proud to quit EoE. Boy was I wrong. I understand that she had zero chance of winning any challenge to get back in, but as the self-appointed "queen" of Survivor, it's a pretty bad look to quit when everyone else is sticking it out, and when Reem lasted the full 36 days on EoE just two seasons ago.

    As for Yul, I think the editing tricked us to make us think it would be close, but I'll bet there was never much of a dilemma among the others. I doubt Yul's plan to try and get Wendell's fire tokens really played much of a role in them deciding to vote him off.

    I remember thinking that Wendell seemed like a jerk a handful of times on his season but mostly got a good guy edit. Probably because they want people to like the winner. I think this is definitely more his true colors.

    On behalf of Dalton:

    SANDRA GOT REEMED!

    My opinion only, others may disagree (Probst seems to) she never did anything to earn the title in the first place except get lucky, one time with a confused jury, one time with a pissed jury. Soon she won't even have the "only one to win twice" BS to harp on. 14 minutes, 57 seconds have elapsed. Outwit? Debatable, but probably yes. Outlast? Obviously. Outplay? Ya gotta play to outplay.

    Probst seems to think enough of her game to put her in the last Survivor to give advise to the others. I'm not saying I agree, but he seems to think she's a queen. Maybe it's all an act for attention. That's my guess.

    I wonder what Jeff thought of Sandra quitting like that. I've been watching some past seasons and he does not like it at all when people give up, whether in challenges or the game itself.

    Probst has his favorites and will defend them. I never cared one way or another about Sandra until this episode. I now have outright contempt towards Sandra. In general, there are too many people who fight to get on Survivor. I hope I never see Sandra again.

    Yeah, he totally defended her. Like I said, I am pretty sure they had a deal in place that if she got voted out she wasn't staying around to try and get back in (though that could have cemented her legacy).
    That EW website is the worst when it comes to popups and auto video. I can't put popup blockers on my work computer so it's a PITA every time I go there. I don't know how that doesn't frustrate the average person (who doesn't know about popup blockers) enough to never visit there again.

    Someone quitting on Edge by raising the flag is not the same as someone quitting on a normal season. Sandra simply utilized a mechanism that was put in place by the producers for the express purpose of leaving the game.

    Yeah, Wendell is not coming off as likable at all this season. It kind of reminds me of James on HvV. James was very well liked coming into that season, but he quickly devolved into a total a-hole.

    Why would there need to be some sort of deal in place? Anyone on EoE can raise that flag anytime they want.

    Well because I think she's in Probst's inner circle and I just get the idea that some of the players got "deals"

    I don’t like Sandra but could see why she quit. She knew her chances of getting back into the game were very slim. She’d fairly recently spent 30+ days in those type of living conditions. Why do it again if you pretty much know you’re done.

    The thing is, it's quite possible that the coins might play a huge deal in them getting back in the game and not necessarily a challenge. We just don't know yet. Why not stick around until you find out?

    Her quitting was definitely odd timing. You have to assume there will be an opportunity to get back in the game at the merge. That's when Rick Devens reentered the game on Season 38. I agree that she should have at least stuck around a few more days.
