I agree on disliking the Final 3. I prefer the Final Two. Definately.

I prefer final two as well. Seems like forever since they've done it. I doubt they will go back.

My guess would be to prevent a landslide

one popular contestant vs one hated contestant?

but with 3, what would happen if say, Russell Hantz got 3 votes and the two other candidates each got 2 votes?

would he win with only 3 of 7 votes?

Yes he would.
What I am waiting for is Rob to get 3 votes, Grant to get 3 votes and Natalie to get 1 vote so we have a tie ( a scenario which can't happen with a final 2 and an odd numbered jury), and see how that is dealt with.

So how many folks are going to duel it out on Redemption Island?

Phillip, as wacky as he is, seems to know exactly whats going on...scary.

Rob was starting to get a bit cocky in his confessionals, thats usually a bad thing.

I had been liking Phil lately, but I went back to the Anti-Phil club after last night.

OK, cockier. He's always had a cocky/confident attitude, but last night it seemed to escalate.

I don't think it signals trouble for Rob, one way or the other. Phillip might try to oust him near the end, but I doubt it once he sees the resentment brewing against Rob.

Earlier in the season (like Episode Two, I believe), Rob talked about carrying Natalie on his shoulders to the end. Later, he talked about taking Natalie/Ashley, and now, Phillip/Natalie, of course. If Rob's Final Three comes to fruition, Natalie will become a millionaire. Most of Zapatera along with some wronged members of Ometepe (such as Matt), will be jealous/angry of Rob and refuse to give him the check. Basically, Natalie is the new Amber.

Natalie Votes: Ashley/Matt/Julie/Ralph/Mike/Steve/Andrea?
Rob Votes: David/Grant
Phillip Votes: none

Rob will have a fair shot at winning if the jury doesn't start until Final 10. If the two losers on Redemption Island are sent home, rather than to Ponderosa, then he stands a much better shot since two of those people are very unlikely to sign their name to his check.

Rob losing at all would make him the most wronged person in the history of the show. No question.

This will likely be a three person challenge which is completely unfair to David and a nice bit of luck for the other two.

That would be true against Nathalie.

But if Matt should somehow win RI and get back into the game and be in final 3, he deserves it every bit as mcuh as Rob, but for a different reason - physical survival and endurance against Rob's strategy.

Good grief, if Nathalie wins, oh my goodness, how absolutely horrible.

I think this scenario or one very close to it is highly likely.
Rob really will have to convince the jury that he deserves the million for being in control, but I see much of the likely jury to vote against him due to petty spite just like All Stars. Rob clearly should have won all stars, he dominated that season in most every aspect.

Here if he is in a final 3, he is likely deserving of the win again, and if he were a first time player, good chance he gets it. But since everyone knows he has played 4 times now, his chances of receiving the requisite jury votes are slim. Obviously he wants Phillip beside him, but is there another person he could take who he could beat? He needs someone (besides Phillip) to emerge as a major annoyance to everyone and have that person be the 3rd member of the final 3.
