Oh, I thought some people had voted for him when I read this:

Chet really blew it for his allies. All he had to do was attend tribal council, help the others vote off Ozzy, which would have been the biggest Survivor blindside ever, and then tell Jeff that he can't go on and leave as well. It would have been an amazing way to go out.


And speaking of blowing things, they completely screwed up the immunity challenge. What were they thinking? Yeah, the other team didn't have the workhorse that is James, but clearly that was the more efficient method, so why they kept on walking on the poles, even when the other team was already carrying over their second person, I just do not know. They should have changed tactics, that would have given them a fighting chance.

Exactly!!!!

I really like Ozzy, so part of me didn't want to see him go...but, for pure entertainment value, it would have been great. Plus...like I said, I like the guy, but I didn't care for his over confidence before the vote. I don't care who you are or in what position you are, unless you have immunity (and he technically didn't, since he wasn't playing his hidden idol), you are NOT safe. Haven't people learned this by now??? He had no clue that there had been a potential plan to oust him.

I cried when Jonathan left (I get way too invested in these shows, jeez), I felt so bad for him.

Oh, Jason...he was so victorious and full of glee when he found the fake idol... This could be good.

Ozzy's over confidence was starting to bug me too. Perhaps he caught on to exactly how people were going to vote but you just never know and his gamble could have backfired.

Jonathon leaving was really sad and you could obviously see how distraught he was having to leave the game. Then you see someone like Chet giving up. Though I don't blame Chet, 'cause everyone has their limitations, it still did irk me a bit.

It definitely shows how Jonathon is one of the best Survivors of all-time. A classy guy me thinks, and I'm going to miss him and what could have happened if he stayed in the game.

I felt soo bad for Jonathan when he gave in and went off with the medics to hospital. It was unfortunate, I think he could have gone all the wya till the end.

I bet that was another case of "Survivor editing", and everyone knew Chet was going, but they had led us to believe that Ozzy might go, so they played up Ozzy's comment, and probably didn't show 4 others say the same thing at TC.

Yes, but it would have lacked "honor", apparently

Chet has to be one of the worst players in the history of the game! I don't know what kind of honor he thinks he has in this game refusing to help his teammates out when they needed him.

What a contrast to Penner who went out like a real hero. I haven't liked him much better in this game than the last time around but I did like, respect, and was moved by his heart and his desire to keep playing.

One person I do like more this time around is Ami. I couldn't stand her last time.

I really don't think there was as much producer meddling though that led to Chet's ouster. Chet said he would "think about it" and all that happened that they didn't show us was Chet deciding that he wasn't going to go along with plan. He probably told his allies "Sorry, guys I'm not doing it" and they had to give it up.

I thought the "Micronesian Natives" was kind of funny. The producers obviously want us to think they are shooting in a new location rather than in Palau again. I don't think anyone out here really goes by the term Micronesian--they're identified ethnically by the island group they belong to and the language they speak (and there is no Micronesian language.) Those guys were Palauan--I've heard the accent a thousand times and recognized it right away. So if there is any producer manipulation it's in their kind of stereotypical and simplistic depiction of "the islanders."

Schedule Alert

Because of the NCAA tourney Survivior is on tonight (Wed) not tomorrow...I think it may be one of those useless recap shows, but I'm not sure.
