    When they worried about losing their tarp, why didn't the take it down and hide it.
    Heyang, my thoughts exactly, why didn't they hide it and anything else that they wanted to keep? Andrew is by far not a good leader and I think he will pay for that in the end. In the treasure chest competition, why did he have Ryan S. go first, didn't seem like a good decision. Yup, they are not geling?

    Not at all surprised that Lil got the boot tonight. She wasn't making any friends out there at all. She may have gone into the game with a good work ethic but her boot speech left me wondering if she had watched Survivor before. Didn't she realize that Survivor is all about lying and deceit?

    I really hope that Jon from Drake goes next. He just comes off as a complete jerk.

    Osten may be ready to throw in the towel, but he showed a lot of heart tonight by lasting as long as he did in the Immunity Challenge. Considering the lack of food and sleep, I think he did a good job.

    I think Osten did one heck of a job on the immunity challenge. Being an athlete myself (albeit an old one), I know it takes a lot of guts to keep going and pushing his muscles like he did. I wish I had seen the reward challenge, but I had a late meeting .

    But - wow! What about Rupert? I'd like to see him go all the way - but when they get more towards the end, and individual immunity, I'll bet Rupert will become too much of a threat.

    Poor Lil

    Do you need special equipment to view the videos at the Survivor site? I click on them and nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Dee

    PS I was sorry to see Lil get the boot. Personally, I would have voted off Darrah. What does she do??? I would have voted her off just based on her voice.

    I think that the only thing you need is the latest RealPlayer if you want to see the videos. If you don't already have it go and download it for free.

    I think voting off Lill was a big mistake on their part. Sure she lost the last hook to catch fish, however she was putting forth the effort in the tribe, and was helping out way more than Darrah did. So what, Darrah was in a harness, sitting for a few hours during the challenge and maybe lasted longer as apose to if Lill was sitting up there, however they weren't looking for a person who had strength for that challenge, they were looking for the smallest and lightest person so that the two strongest would be able to hold them up.

    I personally think that the Morgan Team are just "stupid" I mean did you listen to their comments during tribal council? Jeff is just about laughing at them. They go off saying "oh in the next challenge I truly believe we are going to be the team to shine and be on top .." COME ON ... you said that last tribal council and look where you are this week?

    I've got to give Osten credit, he did one hell of a job during that challenge, but he still annoyes the hell out of me !!!

    I am rooting for Rubert ALL THE WAY ! He's my favorite thus far. I just hope he makes it to the end.

    I felt a bit bad for Osten last night. He really gave it his best and he held out a lot longer than most - especially with a lack of sleep and food. I'm really curious about the preview of him yelling for help...if I recall correctly, he's not a great swimmer.

    I'm not sure if I would've voted for Darrah or Lil. It's tough to judge because of editing. I think they voted Lil off because they want strength for the challenges. Since Lil lit the fire every day, we'll find out if that was the best decision for them next week.

    BTW, they did one smart thing in hiding the fishing net. I don't think Christa spotted it.

    I did not get the tribal council. Ryan-O says they have to stop doing things seperately. At council, they say they are working together. With the exception of fish net, I didn't see a new better shelter either.

    I can only assume that they showed Sandra's and Jon's screaming match to setup next week's conflict. Will Drake really throw a competition just to get rid of someone?

    I'm curious. If Morgan continues to dwindle, will the reconfiguration of teams happen early just to keep this season going? At the rate Morgan is losing, they might elimnate themselves.

    Well Burton deserved to go tonight. Even Shawn voted against him. Michelle (who I had really been liking) is in a bad spot right now since she was part of that alliance.

    Christa is getting better every week, I hope she goes far.

    God knows what's going to happen when Rupert comes back to the Drake tribe. I hope he doesn't get the boot.

    Jon is an [color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color] but he's entertaining to watch. As long as he's on the show he'll be the one everyone is hoping to see lose.

    Osten gets worse as the weeks go by. He literally loses entire challenges for his team by himself.

    Anyone else find Tijuana to be fake? There's something about her that seems so phony every week when she greets the Drake members who come to loot the camp. She took Jon out in the challenge tonight though so at least she's got that going for her.

    Is Andrew the most inept leader ever? He's gonna think he's all high and mighty after winning that IC. Too bad Drake handed the victory to Morgan.

    Even though Jon was drunk at TC I could still make out the words coming out of his mouth. Darrah, however, is completely incomprehensible.

    I hope we get to see more of Trish. She seems pretty cool so far.

    Sandra rocks. I hope her and Rupert make it the the F2.

    I missed the first 15 minutes of the show; why were they thinking about voting off Christa??

    I don't think they should have voted off Burton so soon. I want to slap Jon. Again, why would they vote off Burton vs Jon.

    I hope they don't keep Osten, what a cry baby. I couldn't believe that during a challenge two of his team mates have to go and save him.

    Jon is irritating! He was high as a kite because he thought he was the swing vote - which he wasn't - but I bet that's the last time he's got control. They're going to vote him off as soon as he's despensible, I'd guess (I hope!).

    I think Jeff was irritated by them at tribal council. They wouldn't give him anything. Although, I'm sure he knows what's going on -what everyone is plotting and planning, because I'm sure he watches the tapes.

    I wonder why they chose Christa? I like her and hope she does well.

    Why'd Shawn turn on Burton? Threat, maybe?

    I wonder how the producers decided to let the immunity winner take a member of the other tribe. Didn't seem fair to give that one person immunity over the rest of the tribe. Also, didn't allow him to participate in the direction his tribe was going.

    I think the producers watch what is going on in the tribes and combine that with how the tribes are doing at challenges and ammend the game based on that. I don't think they ever want it to get too lopsided - although, it has this time around. But, I do think they make ammendments as they go to retain a little control over the game. I highly doubt that when planning this season, they said 'Okay, 4th immunity challenge is not only for immunity, but also for the temporary use of another tribesperson.' I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

    Great season so far.

    Too funny Dee about Osten!!!

    Regarding Christa: She just seemed a bit whiny and not really clicking with everyone else. I don't know if you saw the part when Burton and Rupert were talking in the middle of the night. Burton approached Rupert about throwing the challenge so that they could vote off Christa or Trish. Then Rupert made the comment that in his mind he was calling Burton a traitor and that if this were a real pirate culture he would be gone.

    Burton was on the CBS Early Show this morning. He said that his conversation with Rupert lasted over 1 hour. He also said that other tribe mates had talked about throwing the challenge to get rid of someone, not specifying who. I'm sure that Sandra would have wanted to get rid of Jon. However, Burton and Rupert were definitely the biggest threats in the tribe and I'm sure if Rupert hadn't gone over to Morgan as part of winning immunity, he would have voted for Burton. It was also revealed (when Burton was saying his final words) that Shawn voted for Burton!!! Burton, Shawn, and Michelle were an alliance. But he also said that he would have voted off a strong player who was a threat as well.

    Burton on Jon: He was entertaining. I knew he would be a swing vote because it was either me or Christa. He was a brilliant player. I have nothing against him.

    Burton on Rupert: (about Rupert's comment that he was like the HS pretty boy jock) He's being a bit high schoolish. He isolated himself a lot from the tribe. -- which I have to kind of disagree with as Rupert seemed to be socializing with the women except for Michelle.

    I can't wait to see what happens next week!!

    As much as dislike Jon, he was the swing vote last night - I don't think Shawn would have voted for Burton if Jon hadn't. I think Jon told Shawn what was happening and he chose to go with the majority. And because of his illusions of grandeur, Burton was the correct person to vote out this episode - but if Drake is mart they will get rid of Jon fast now. I don't see that happening however.

    And Tijuana was equally responsible for that reward challenge disaster last night - WOW is she an idiot, running out there when Darrah was ready to go, with the mask on her head.

    I can't believe I have to wait another week for the next episode!

    Jon seems to be a Rob(from last Survivor)-wannabee. Only problem is that he's super-irritating. Rob didn't seem to get on the nerves of his tribemates as much as Jon. Hope he goes next.

    The producers promised twists this season - they have to do things like this to avoid letting the contestants know what's going to happen. This pirate theme rocks!!! The pillaging and taking captives (Rupert) make the competitions even more critical.

    I'm not sure it was good idea for Drake to throw the immunity challenge. They sure didn't expect to lose Rupert as a result. Based on the previews, it seems like Rupert will be doing well with Morgan - will it save him after a merge?

    BTW, I heard on interview with Lil on the radio. She said that Rupert is an honorable pirate because he didn't steal their sneakers at the marketplace. Also, she said that Osten was a really nice guy - they talked a lot and she said that Osten was just very much out of his element in the outdoors. She thought that he probably thought that his physical strength would help him manage being outside his element. My opinion, he probably never really watched Survivor if he didn't realize how much of a jungle it is.

    BTW, I'm finding Ryan O to be particularly annoying.

    Jeff was obviously annoyed with Jon at Tribal Council I think his commedian act is wearing thin. From the previews seems Rupert is bonding w/Morgan. They are just going to be so happy that he can catch some FISH for them. LOL Too bad Rupert couldn't bring his fish spear along too. Love his sewing skills too. His new skirt is DIVINE! LOL

    I agree that Osten must not have watched past Survivor Shows because he totally seems caught off guard about how bad it was going to be *roughing it*. Poor thing I do feel sorry for him having to wear his undies day in and out. However, dummy shouldn't have sold all his freakin clothes. LOL

    First of all This Survior is probably the BEST ONE YET *in my opinion* I absolutly LOVE the Pirate Theme of this show , and I just can't wait to see next week.

    Second of all - they really need to get rid of Osten. Sure he may be a nice guy and all, but come on, "I'm drowning" Give me a break. Ok I can understand, they haven't eaten, and with being in water like that, and being weak, I can understand how he might have felt that he needed the help to get back in. But "DUH" you've got goggles on your head, why not use them, he could have gotten one of those pieces of the puzzle the first time he dived in to try to get one. Osten in my eyes is weak.

    Thirdly, very nice twist they added, with Rupert going to the other tribe for the night. I am sure that Rupert is smart not to give too much information to the other tribes, because well he's playing the game right, and he's too smart to "goof" up and spill about what their tribe "plans" are etc... Its normally for his tribe to worry, not knowing what he is saying or doing.

    And MY GOSH I wanted to splap Jon right across the head. He is gettting VERY annoying to watch, and he isn't all that funny at all. He thinks he's all that, and King of the Island, with his stupid wreastling jokes are just too much. I feel bad for the other tribe members who have to listen to him day in and day out. If my memory serves me correctly, having watched an interview before Survivor started, I believe Jon was the one said in an interview that he wanted to be the first guy on Survivor to have "sex" on the Island. PPPLLLEEAAASSEE I wouldn't go near the guy, even if someone payed me a million dollars to do it. I really hope he's the next one to get the boot.
