    Russ, yelling at God, and calling Probst "Lord" isn't the greatest strategy.

    There's still RC and Abi-Maria, potentially.

    That was a cluster****. Malcolm made a good move with his bluff. Lisa was correct to think about who she should go to the end with, but she tried to make her big move several days too early. I was initially surprised and disappointed Skupin was the fifth vote that got Kent out, but then I realized he's a returnee and Kent wanted him gone right after Penner. And, of course, Skupin has to be loyal to his only ally, Lisa, who was voting Kent. Abi is a terrible combination: big mouth, tiny brain. And Pete thinks too highly of himself. Mastermind? Yeah ****ing right, keep telling yourself that, Petey.

    OMG. Since the merge, and especially after the last two episodes, this season has leaped up into amazing territory. Let's hope it stays there.

    Skuper Duper!

    Well then, I liked all the final 4. And the top 3 did the sensible thing in voting out who they did.

    I think Penner's speech revealing Lisa's past cost her $1,000,000. Or at least $900,000.

    Good season, but not great. Next up, Fans v Favourites. Lisa coming back, you think?

    I think the only 2 in the final 4 impacted by who got voted out were Malcolm and Denise. I don't think Skupin and Lisa had a chance. Interesting that Denise would have bet Malcolm (at least according to the jury at the reunion show).

    I hope to god that I never hear Lisa talk again. I couldn't wait for her to shut the hell up. Doubt she'll be in F vs F since it was filmed back to back with the Philippines, IIRC (cost saving measure, I think).

    Decent season though.

    So, I always got the vibe that most of Tandang did not like Skupin very much and I wondered why. There was the goggle-shattering incident, of course. But I didn't think that was it and wondered all season long what CBS didn't show us. Artis finally spilled the beans on twitter:

    Unfortunately for Tandang, Skupin assured they would have a non-chalet.

    Holy crap, I've never heard a grown man sound so much like a teenage girl writing a facebook rant about someone at school she doesn't like.

    Seriously, even if the guy built something that fell down, 400lbs was not going to KILL someone. Artis just comes off as a bit nuts there tbh. That rant makes me understand more why they thought he was unpleasant than why he loathes Skupin so entirely.

    And I liked that final four as well. I don't think there was any way anyone but Malcolm and Denise were going to win though, revelations about Lisa's past or not. I'm surprised she got one vote. She's sweet but totally unreliable and stabbed everyone in the back at some point, though out of wishy washyness instead of malice. Was really shocked she won fan fav over Malcolm.

    But ultimately I think Denise deserved it the most. She and Malcolm were in the same boat, except she didn't have the advantage of being an attractive, charming, 24 year old man. Let's face it, most intelligent older women in this show get voted off early because people are threatened by them. And she was as physically fit and competitive in challenges as she could possibly have been. I like Malcolm too but I really admired what Denise did out there.

    So, pretty much, they're saving the big guns for the next All-Stars/HvV or whatever they call the next all-returnee cast.

    And Malcolm, really? He was a good player, certainly, but I didn't find him all that memorable. I guess they had to bring someone from Philippines.

    I also read that Francesca, a first-episode boot from her season, is only on the show b/c of Probst.

    The two returnees I'm most excited about: Erik and Cochran.

    Other than Malcolm, were any of these people actually favourites? i.e. in a good way.

    So sick of the sight of members of the Hantz family on Survivor. And Cochran.

    Nah, most of those coming back are Villains, definitely not Favourites. They should do a returnees show where everyone was the first kicked out of their tribe.

    I do like
    Andrea and Brenda
    though. Should be fun to watch.

    I may be in a minority, but I still love

    Cochran

    But as much fun as villains can be, I really didn't ever want to see

    Phillip again. I think he might be the only certifiably insane person to be on this show. And to me that was more baffling, annoying, and sometimes a little sad than entertaining.

    Also I hope Brandon is voted off first.
