Nope, Yao sent himself to Exile Island (after winning the reward challenge and giving a truck to Dreamz in exchange for the immunity idol if Dreamz won it during the final four) , got the third clue and gave it to his ally Earl. Earl then went and found the idol. This kind of honour is sickening.

If Yao just went and got the idol himself, he would have guaranteed himself final four at worst. But that's why Yao deserves to win. He is playing an amazing all-round game. He has contributed in the challenges, won individual immunity, found idols, contributed to the camp and has played a clean game. Who knew you could compete in this game without being a total jerk?

Yao actually got lucky at tribal council. I really don't think he had intended to use the idol, but Stacy totally gave him the heads up by practically telling him that the others were voting for him tonight. When you say you think there is going to be a split vote, you've let the cat out of the bag. One of the biggest blunders ever on this show. Yao's reaction to what she said pretty much showed that he was taken by surprise.

But it helped him, and while it must have been gut-wrenching for him to use it then, he made the right move. He's done very well and if he makes it to the final three, he's your winner.

Watching the first episode after drawing him in the Survivor pool, I took one look at him and said "omg, he'll be out within two shows."

Sometimes being wrong rocks. He seems like a genuinely nice man with a great deal of integrity. The part I'm most surprised about are his social and people reading skills. He's fairly quiet, and yet can astutely read the undercurrent of the camp very accurately.

I agree. He was aware of a possible move against him but not certain. Hence the "I got bad vibes" remark to Earl who tried to reassure him. His conversation with Dreamz gave him some more insight and I imagine he noticed how people were behaving around him leading up to the vote. Stacy's comment obviously gave him the final piece of information but some contestants don't pick up on all the hints during tribal councils. I don't think it was luck. He analyzed the whole situation and reacted to it.

When Yao pulled out the idol, Earl looked at him like he had two heads. Earl had no idea what was going on even after Stacy spilled the beans so it wasn't an obvious reveal unless one was conscious of the possible betrayal.

Oh my GOD how stupid is Stacy!! She pretty much voted herself out IDIOT! Not to mention she's absolutely horrendous at the challenges.

In any case, I hope Dreamz does honor his word. Yau is really amazing. I hope he wins it all!

I disagree. Yes, Yao had been analyzing the situation up to that point, but until Stacy started to blab away, he wasn't sure, and based on his expression, I don't believe he was going to use the idol until that happened. He and Earl have been together throughout this whole thing, and Earl was taken aback when Yao used it. That tells me that they had no plans on pulling the idol card at that council. They would have strategized previously, and from their expressions, it is quite obvious that wasn't what they had originally planned.

Has Yao been playing the game well? Of course - better than anyone else. But Stacy pretty much sealed the deal for him tonight.

YM's been on a roll, but tonight's show was definitely his finest hour. He played all of the angles well. I loved how he struck the car deal with Dreamz and then sent himself to Exile Island. Then of course when he shocked the others and played the idol. That was sweet!
Boo's been on a roll too. They have to get rid of him ASAP. He's getting better each week. Dreamz is such a dope that they should use him until the end. By "they", I mean Earl and YM, by the way. They deserve it the most right now.

Yeah, but some people would not have played the idol thinking Stacy was just blabbering. No luck involved. He evaluated the situation and all the cues given to him and responded accordingly. Luck would be him pulling out the idol without any external influence whatsover on a hunch, this was not luck. And yes, Stacy was the nail in the coffin to his decision to use the idol. But if he had not been considering the possibility of it happening which he did. Or have an awareness of how close Dreamz and Cassandra are, which he does. He may have disregarded her comment thinking she is just overconfident after being mislead by others in the group into thinking she had a chance. This is one of the strategies used to calm people before they get voted out. They have made people think they are safe and then out they go despite showing confidence at the tribal council. A split vote could mean anything especially coming from the person who was targeted for going home. Look what happened at the tribal council when Michelle went home, everything was said and put out there and Dreamz stilled screwed it up.

Actually, I would think Yao has been prepared to use the idol since he found it at every council especially since they all know he had it. This guy has an incredibly analytical mind and watches everything. Unlike Boo, who decided to go off by himself and miss everyone talking about him while he planned on sneaking up on others talking about him.

Earl looked bewildered at Yao's actions because he had no idea why Yao was pulling the idol. He never had Yao's conversation with Dreamz, he never had bad vibes, he probably never noticed people behaving differently around Yao. Yao has been noticing different things about people and evaluating them throughout the whole season.

I agree that Stacy's comment helped seal the deal but don't like the suggestion it was luck. Winning the lottery is luck, evaluating and studying stocks and investing based on information about a company and getting a windfall is not luck.

Yao made it this week and I am glad. Smart move. I like this guy, he is really strategic and is playing the *game* well. Next and final episode (sniff sniff) should be interesting. I Wasn't in the room when Yao gave away a vehicle he won tho. What's up with that?

Stacy may go down as the worst player ever to get as far as she did...I mean physically nothing in the challenges, mistrearted people early on (Dreamz & Boo) cause they were on the outside of her alliance, admitted to being a "follower" last week, and then the stupidest statement ever at tribal council...just keep the ruse up, act like you think you're going home and Yau is out and you move on...but noooo, she has to talk about how the vote is gonna be split and surprise some people etc.
No way Yau plays the idol if she doesn't make that speech.

And I'm sure it is all in the editing, but didn't it seem like Probst gave Yau an inordinate amount of time compared to previous TCs to produce the idol?

That was pretty funny...Boo"I'm gonna hide here by the water and hear people talking about me"...5 others back in the cave: "Lets vote Boo out".

However I'd love to see Boo win the next 2 immunities to compound things.

And Dreamz, assuming he gets to the final 4 and Yau is still there, should just not win immunity, hope someone like Boo does if he's still there and team up with Boo to try and oust Yau.

Some interesting possibilities. Dreamz, Boo and Useless should join forces now to oust Yau, but there is a loyalty to Earl that may prevent that. But it should be fun if Boo can win immunity again to see what the alliance of 4 does to itself, and if Earl's turtle comes into play.
