I think Randy is an asshole too!

Oh and a side note..I read in the paper today that Erik and Jaime from Survivor China are engaged! I had to go back and look to see who Jaime was I don't remember them seeming that close on the show...but apparently they entered a contest to win the cost of the wedding and honeymoon and I guess they won

^Yeah, i read that about Erik and Jamie too. I did remember her because of the whole fake immunity idol thing. I believe it was the one that YauMan made and planted. And i remember Erik because he was a virgin.

They did have a bit of a romance on the show, but neither were major players so they were easy to forget. Erik had no game.

Jamie was the blond right?

You're right on everything except Yau-Man wasn't on that season. They were on Survivor: China. James was told where both idols were at each camp by Todd. Jaime then looked into James's bag, assumed those were the idols, and decided to take one of the ones James had dropped at camp with her in case it happened to be a real idol. I still think Jaime and Eliza playing the fake idols wasn't remotely hilarious in either season...it's a million dollars, why would you downplay a potential savior and get yourself voted out? I'd gladly be made a fool of in the same light since at least it's called trying.

I remember an interview where Jeff Probst said Erik had the least game of anyone he'd ever seen on the show. Take from that what you will.

But that wouldn't make any sense! Sure, I could see her lying and creating a persona to get on the show but she was recruited. Recruits are picked up off the street because of the way they look (weird, or usually, attractive). She hadn't even watched the show much before besides obviously taking a glance at some Micronesia episodes (hence the occasional Parvati fanaticism). Sekou, for example, was recruited for Cook Islands like two days before the cast flew over there. He'd never seen the show. Becky, also from Cook Islands, was recruited because of her MySpace photograph.

But how did they find her? I mean she ain't that hot. There's just something very Johnny Fairplay about that interview, you know? It sounds like someone in the habit of seeking attention.

I think she's very attractive and one of the most attractive they've ever had on here. I'm not sure how they found her but it was off the street most likely. She had recently moved to Los Angeles actually and as of a few weeks ago was seen on the shoulder of the guy who plays Oscar on The Office. Also, she supposedly dated Ethan (Survivor: Africa winner/All Stars) many years ago.

She's actually not the only product of an incestuous Survivor relationship of this season. Eliza gave the casting department a thumbs up for Marcus who works at the same law firm as her.

C'mon...Eliza looked at the "idol" and said to Jason, "thats not an idol, its a stick!", and then played it...that is damn funny.
And Jaime had just finished telling us how she was not a "dumb blonde" and so forth, but reality proved otherwise.

If the producers of the show are gonna recruit contestants why do they continue to have "try outs"?

Seriously...what is the purpose of sending Sugar to immunity island constantly ? Just so they know she has the idol? I don't get it....
This season has been the most boring I can remember...these people are all just major yawns

Sugar is really pulling it off. Haha on another trip to the Island tho. I'm glad to see Ace go. He was evil.

Gotta give Ken props, he convinced Sugar that Ace would flip on her, then Ace asked for the idol, making Ken's lies seem believable.

How the F is that useless Crystal still there?
Man what a stupid tribe. As much of a snake as Ace was, he is a world better than her.

Ace/Dan both were unintentionally hilarious and I wanted to see more. Susie/Crystal have really nothing to offer us as viewers.

Really, the entire season is based on evil Randy & the very popular Sugar. Corinne may emerge as a larger than life character as well but that remains to be seen. Dan/Matty have had their moments as well, so it's definitely not a wash out of a cash. The scenery is gorgeous, the challenges are more innovative than they've been in recent seasons, and the gameplay still could have a few tricks for us.

And, as seen in next week's preview, naked Corinne.

Try outs allow for them to round out the cast with a couple uber-fans and game savvy people. That's how you get, say, a Charlie. Really, I get the feeling that most of the people applying are middle-aged viewers that are overweight like a lot of Middle America is...and really, there isn't much of a difference between one Joe Sixpack and another.
