The interesting thing is that none of them when discussing Ciera being 4th or 3rd or whatever seemed to even realize that somebody else is coming back into the game (and soon), and based on what we've seen to date at Redemption Isle, its likely to be Laura. Ciera might have been better served just sticking with the plan and waiting till her Mom came back and trying to turn Monica for a big move at the end.

Great tribal.. a real good laugh. Tyson is arrogant, but he's playing a good game and he's entertaining in this lot of boring people.

The season would blow without Tyson.

Plus, Tyson has shown more emotion this season than previously. Shit, he cried again last night speaking about how he owed it to his girlfriend to win the game.

I agree with all the above comments. I hated Tyson previously...but for some reason, I love him this time. It surely has to do with how they are editing him. I totally agree with Hewson about Ciera blowing it by not just voting with Tyson this time...her Mom is certainly going to be the one back in. I loved it whenCiera said to Tyson to stop glaring at her...and he said, I am not glaring at you...then Haydon left his torch. hahaha.

On a more somber note.... I just read that Tina's son (Katie's brother) was killed in a car accident on Tuesday....

Tyson finding the 2nd idol was far too convenient and easy similar to Russell Hantz' first time in the game. Show is definitely scripted.
I did get a kick out of the rustle/ruffle/Russell discussion.

The people tied in votes not having to draw rocks has been well known for years. It's why the rocket scientist flipped on Laura in Survivor: Samoa, he didn't want to draw rocks to save her rear end which would be automatically immune. In fact, I'd say that the automatic immunity for vote-getters is the main reason we've avoided ties all this time. It puts the onus on those forcing the tie rather than those that are already getting votes and have nothing to lose.

Of course, the other time they drew rocks was absolutely retarded. They drew them at Final Four which was fucking stupid since there would only be one person that should be drawing them under that scenario (luckily, it was that person that went home). Jeff Probst later acknowledged it was a mistake and we've obviously had a few Final Four firestarting tiebreakers since (Vanuatu, Palau, Panama, Cook Islands). Not as likely to happen anymore though given that the game usually ends with a Final Three now, so people just vote out whom they deem to be biggest threat.

It's definitely not scripted. The clue was just a total gimme for drama's sake as it explicitly mentioned that it's in a tree. It is kind of ridiculous that it was so high up as there's certain men and women on this show that in no way could pull themselves up on it the way Tyson did.

They really should have the Redemption Island returnee come back at Final Six. While they'd have to go another round to try and make it to the final tribal council, they'd actually be better off. If the Final Three is well known by that point, then it would likely lead to a 3-3 tie at the following tribal council. The way it works now, the Redemption Island returnee is only a threat by way of potentially winning the final two immunity challenges, since there's no chance they can get the numbers as it will be 3-2 at best at the first tribal after they return.

I didn't recall that aspect of it.

So, what's the verdict? Seems like Tyson has this in the bag unless a bitter jury wants to reward Monica for her immunity wins. Only thing preventing a Tyson-Monica-Gervase Final Three is if the last hanger-on wins immunity. Otherwise, it looks like he has this on lock.

Gervase will surely get zero votes. If your argument is that you were buddies with someone that did every single aspect of the game better than you...

I honestly think we're looking at bitter beer face jury based on comments from folks after being ousted (see Caleb) and reactions thus far from the jury at TC.

I think if its Tyson/Gervase/Monica that Monica wins.

However I still expect Laura to monkeywrench the whole thing by getting back in the game and winning her way into the final 3, and taking the million.

If Tyson doesn't win, this season won't be memorable. He's the most compelling contestant.

I'd like to see Laura come back, then have Monica go with an all women alliance and vote Tyson out, then have Ciera win it all.

She is the only one that is playing a decent game.

Tyson's not playing a decent game?

Monica would stand no shot at winning against Laura and Ciera so I don't see her making that move. She may be able to beat Tyson and Gervase if we get a bitter jury (and we will).

Cieras talking too much shit now, I dont think she'll make it to the end. Tyson has to play the idol next tribal. He'll probably make it to f3.

Yeah Ciera is getting a little full of herself all of a sudden.

I actually know Tyson quite well in real life. I went to high school with him and also hung out with him a bit in college.

He's exactly the same in real life as he is in the show. Arrogant and kind of an asshole at times, but also pretty fun to be around.
