Yeah if I were to handicap the final 6 as far as winning:
Cirie
Aubrey Huff
Culpepper
Yau Man Lite
Officer Waffle
Wallpaper

Officer Waffle could get to the final, she's safe at the next vote, but she could only win against wallpaper and Yau Man lite, and I still think Yau Man Lite takes that.

Next tribal will be interesting.
Theoretically, if Tai holds one idol, gives one to Brad, Wallpaper has his, Waffle has the legacy advantage and Aubrey Huff wins the immunity challenge you could have a scenario where 5 of the 6 folks can't be voted out.
Won't play out that way but boy would that be something.

What I've been enjoying about this season is that there's no clear cut winner. I figured Birdcage would be one of the Final 4 at least, but the other contestants were wise to vote him out when they got the chance. If anyone goes to the Final 3 with either Tai, Troyzan or Officer Waffle, they should win. Cirie fucked up big time by failing reading comprehension, but she still has room to rally. So either Cirie, Culpepper, or Aubry should emerge victorious.

Almost like a few seasons back when they couldn't go to drawing rocks because there would be only one person drawing and he would automatically be sent home.

Your scenario seems pretty likely. As long as Tai ends up with an idol and not the immunity challenge win, then we could very well see the guys covering each other.

I think Cirie is in the most precarious position at the very next tribal...and it's getting way too close to the end to really risk it with her. If she makes it, you are not going to win this game, nor should you.

Not happy with Officer Waffle. Culpepper should have won.

God, so much to discuss. It truly was one of the most interesting finales ever.

What sticks in my mind the most is just how much I badly, badly want to bone Aubry. Over the last two seasons, her personality has grown on me immensely. Her intelligence, her razor sharp wit and her ability to call bullshit whenever necessary. I was devastated when she left tonight (I'll get to that tribal below) and was thinking how I couldn't be more attracted to somebody and then she turns out to be an absolute stunner on the jury.



Thoughts:

#1 - The Final 6 tribal council was a fitting end to Cirie's career. This woman has now gone home at a F4 firestarting challenge, in the F3 when there was a surprise F2, idoled out by J.T. with a minority vote and now goes home with no votes. Even when you want to get out the best player to never win you can't do it the old fashioned way.

#2 - I felt that the FInal 5 tribal council was sort of a missed opportunity for Sarah and Tai. Yeah, I get that Aubry is a massive threat to win, but by keeping Aubry into the Final 4, it ensures that either Aubry or Brad goes home right before the Final Tribal Council. Voting for Troyzan probably would have been smartest.

And if you're Sarah, you'd have to assume that Brad/Troyzan would want to take Tai to the end given all of his flip-flopping and the fact that he already lost for the same reasons on his first season. Granted, that's not the move they made because Brad was a total fucking idiot to let the woman that worked in an alliance with most of the people on the jury get to the end, but if you're Sarah, you'd have to assume you'd be out fourth and therefore it would be best to work with Aubry for one vote.

#3 - Jury made the absolute right move. Brad didn't do shit strategically once his alliance fell apart and he built no social relationships. Just look at how he treated Tai in tonight's finale and it's blatantly obvious why he deserved to lose. He may have been able to hold back the tendencies we witnessed on his first season most of the time, but they still came shining through by the end.

#4 - Ozzy is still a whiny little bitch who doesn't understand how this game is played, but at least he wasn't sanctimonious about it all like that awful witch Debbie.

#5 - Aubry. Aubry. Aubry. God fucking damn.

#6 - Oh, and to add more fuel to the "Sarah is kind of a dumbass" discussion (Answer: She is), what the fuck was she thinking by saying that voting with Tai was "a risk" at F4 because she could have to make a fire. Um, you fucking moron, if you have to make fire then you damn sure should be glad you voted with Tai for Troyzan because otherwise it means you would be going home. I get the risk of taking Tai to the end, but her reasoning for not voting with him was fucking stupid. Sarah was by no means a great winner, but she was the most in-tune to the game of anyone this season and played damn hard. But there were a lot of mistakes on the way to that $1,000,000.

#7 - Jesus christ, Aubry. Just like go hide out in the crowd for this reunion show so I can concentrate.

I think Officer Waffle is one of the worst winners ever. An anticlimactic ending to an entertaining season.

Well, it played out just like that save for flipping Brad and Aubrey around.
That was pretty cool (not for Cirie)

No question Brad should have taken Yau Man Lite to the final instead of Officer Leggo My Eggo, almost as bad a decision as his wardrobe/facial hair choice for the reunion...good God man did you look in a mirror before leaving the hotel?

You, my friend, have odd taste in women. Who was it before...Pei Gei and I forget the other. Certainly not classic hotties.

Give Me Halie, though maybe put Aubrey's brain in her head first.

Is Brad's decision to take Sarah the stupidest ever? I mean, Colby at least kind of thought he had the votes and Tina was pulling the wool over his eyes...like it's no surprise that Jeff brought up the "Should you have taken Tai?" question on the reunion show because to most viewers it would have been the correct decision.

I mean, he was out there all the time and noticed that Sarah had worked with most of these people on the jury. What could he possibly have been thinking?

Plus, we can't really take him seriously over his reasons to vote out Tai when it was clearly all based on emotions related to past grievances.

Seriously may have been the dumbest decision ever because it was so obvious Sarah would win unless the jury was randomly bitter.

My only guess is he thought the jury would be bitter beer jury a la the first All Stars jury giving the win to Ambah instead of Mariano.
Really no smart strategic sense in the move.
Yau Man Lite would have done terribly in front of the jury and it may not have ended up 5-5. (Ozzy said he'd have voted for Tai which I find hard to believe the way he was rallying for Brad in the final TC. I think his response at the reunion show was tainted by seeing the final episodes where Brad bullied Yau Man Wannabe)
Which by the way I am glad we finally got the answer to the question of what happens in the case of a tie.

Finally caught up. Looking back that was a great season overall with some pretty crazy twists. Culpepper made the classic mistake of choosing his final opponent based on least amount off butt hurt. He would have easily won if he chose Little Yau. He also didn't present a strong case for himself in the final TC. Quite a few on the jury felt he was a dick- but he could have framed it within the context that this is a game, and yes, being a dick can be part of the mental manipulation strategy. He got sheepish on it though. And judging by his new look on the finale, he's gone into middle management at the office. Whereas Offissuh Sayrah did a great job positioning everything she did as within the spirit of the game- and oh I really do like you guys in real life.

It still amazes me that after nine hundred and fifty two seasons people sit in the jury butt hurt over relationships in the game. Or a blindside or whatever. It's fucking Survivor, you know what you're getting into. The only person with a legit reason to be pissed off outside the game is Zeke because that situation transcended the game and will affect his entire life.

Troyzan is a dope.
Cirie got royally screwed.
Little Yau continues his string of stupid decisions.
Aubry gives BigMac a boner.

Definitely a lot of "what ifs" regarding Cirie...if someone like Troyzan ends up vulnerable at Final Six and goes home, she'd have had a wealth of opportunities in front of her with Brad and Aubry seeming like the bigger threats and Brad pissed at Tai, etc.

But I still would have a hard time believing that anybody, even Brad, would be dumb enough to take Cirie to the finals.

Yeah Cirie wins in a walk against any 2 of the other 5 who were in the final episode, so would have been pretty foolhardy for anyone to take her with them.
