It also showed Todd and Amanda I think climbing up on the arch thing looking for the immunity idol, and apparently not realizing it was 2 inches from their face.

I can't decide what to make of what happened. . .

I recognize the brilliance of Pei Gei's strategy (though as has already been pointed out, the execution was pretty much bungled with how obvious and smug they were about it), but something about it still just sat so wrong with me. Something in me just resists the idea of "losing" on purpose or throwing challenges. I just don't like to see it. And to see James taken out that way would just be somehow sad to me. . .It about broke my heart watching him during tribal council.

For that reason I was glad it was Aaron they sent home. Maybe James will be able to win the next immunity challenge all by himself. How amazing would that be? Unlikely, though, I know.

The whole thing sped up the dynamic that usually happens at the merge where they start targeting the strong players, with the disadvantage being that the strong don't have the opportunity to protect themselves like they do in indvidual immunity challenges. For the sake of all the other players having a better shot at the win, getting James out IS good--for everyone (except him of course). But I just hate to see him done like that.

I agree. I hope James can pull some kind of miracle and stay in the game. He's a great player.

I thought it was great.

Outwit. Outlast. Outplay.

It's not about sportsmanship, it's about strategy.

I know, you're right. Those same three words came to mind as I was watching. It was brilliant (though you have to admitt their execution was pretty poor)

In fact, I humbly admitt I thought of Pei Gei's plan before she did.

Still. . .ah, it just hurt to see James taken down (almost) like that.

I'm with you maycocksean, it doesn't sit well with me either. I am a lot like James in that I wasn't able to fathom how anyone could do such a thing and laugh about it. I mean I know why they threw it and all, but my pride wouldn't let me do that. I won't be rooting for either of them at all.

But you're right also Bonogir84. It isn't all about winning battles. It's about strategy.

I just feel bad because James was in great shape before, and now he's screwed.

If PG is one of the last people standing, i think she deserves some votes for this strategy. If Jamie is with her, she shouldn't get any. Same goes for Erik. They just went along with things. There's always the masterminds and the people who ride their coattails.

oh you just know that PG and Jamies strategy is going to bite them in the ass....

they certainly make alot of assumptions, not the mention the fact they didnt even let virgin guy in on their strategy, and they expect the original tribe to stay together when the dont even share things...I mean really, and why do they assume when they merge that the 2 movers will automatically come back to the fold...seems like they assume too much without any consideration whatsoever.

cant wait to see the ass-biting though..pg annoys the hell out of me

Too bad the 3 stooges decided not to throw the eating challenge, even though James was trying. Would have liked to see Jaime gone.
