    Survivor Vanuatu

    Well, so far, the men are just STUPID. Seems to me that this early on, you get rid of your weakest link (Chris) instead of one of your strongest. This was a case of a group of flabby guys being threatened by someone who was actually in shape. I hope the women just keep kicking their butts until they wake up.

    I think Chad played the Artificial Leg card entirely too early; if it'd been me I'd've waited at least another few days if I could have, just to really maximize the shock value if nothing else; plus it'd give me a few extra days to make alliances, etc. It was too early IMO to know how the revelation would go over.

    Among the women, I like Scout and Leanne, and I think Twila is going to be QUITE SOMETHING. It always kills me (and a variation of this happens every time) when these chickie-boos are down by the lagoon lounging around doing their Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue thing and then turning around and complaining that the others are SHOWING THEM UP and TRYING TO MAKE POINTS by ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING LIKE BUILDING SHELTER. I think it would be interesting if the people who were actually interested in doing any work, made their own shelters, and the ones who wanted to treat this like a South Pacific vacation can just lounge around and sleep on the beach and get themselves rained on.

    What I think will be most interesting about this edition is that it might turn out to be more about young vs. "old" than male vs. female. I say, "Go old folks!!" :D :D

    Thanks Jonny for starting the thread. We have our elimination game going on at work. (I dare not say pool because that's a form of gambling, not allowed at work) Anyhow, I have Leann so I am hoping that she gets somewhere in the game. We have $90 for the final person, $50 for runner-up, $10 for 2nd runner-up, $10 for 1st person on jury and $20 for 1st person voted off. We have a good time with the game and then we all gather for the finale with food and drinks.

    So far...um...YAWN! No real standout personalities to me yet. I also think Chad played the one leg thing too soon, but who knows how hot it is there...maybe he just needed to be in shorts! The gals, yeah, I think Twila is pretty cool! lol Not so sure about the little barbie nitwits....No one just leapt out at me that I just instantly like or dislike so far (Like Rupert or Bawstin Wab!)

    I missed last week (stupid VCR!), but had read all sorts of recaps - I was mostly surprised that Eliza wasn't anywhere near as annoying as I'd heard. But maybe she just didn't get much airtime. I was really pleased at the turnaround to vote off Dolly. The look on Mia's face as the votes came out was priceless. So far Mia and Julie I don't like, Ami seems the shrewdest (she very deftly fed Leann and Eliza the info to engineer Dolly's ouster), I like Twila, Scout's days are numbered unless she gets good at something real fast.

    On the boys' team, I have a harder time figuring our what's going on yet. I don't really like or dislike anyone yet - but Rory is clearly ostracizing himself from the team. He's got a huge target on his back.

    I bet the producers loved getting to film the gals sidle past each other on that balance beam - I thought seeing how obviously uncomfortable the men were getting that close to each other was hilarious.

    The guys were so close getting fire on their own - I was rooting for them!

    So far I like Ami and Mia from Yasur, and Lea and Travis from Lopevi.

    Rory is just plain annoying and needs to go.

    Does Lisa do anything but smile and show off her fake rack?

    Scout is useless.

    I was kind of hoping that the guys would have gone just far enough in the balance beam challenge to the point where we could have seen Bubba and Sarge try to get past each other with those oversized bellies of theirs -- that would have made for some serious comedy! I notice they had Chris at the very end so he wouldn't have to walk by anybody!

    I was little nervous last night about Leann. Glad she got to stay.

    Great strategizing by Leann. Hopefully, she can convince the young girls that she did the right thing. Dolly was the weak link for the alliances. They couldn't allow her to swing between groups from week to week.

    Leann's going to have a tough sell though. I don't know if she made any promises to the older women - maybe she only made a deal for that tribal council. She's going to have to convince both groups that she's capable of keeping her word.

    I think Scout will be 'safe' since she's playing the mother role. They showed a lot of clips of her fussing over the younger women. Twila's probably the one that most find abrasive. They only went ofter the other one because Dolly moved them in that direction due to her alliance with Twila.

    Definitely not sure how this game is going.....

    First of all -- John K. -- ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. At first I thought he was gonna do the standard "man thang" and give immunity to the woman he thought was the hottest, but WOW. Getting to the root of why they got rid of Dolly was smart, but giving the immunity to Ami and letting things progress as they would have anyway? BRILLIANT. One of the smartest things I've ever seen on this show.

    I am really starting to like Twila; she absolutely cracks me up. SO glad they got rid of Mia; she was truly obnoxious and had she stayed around long enough she would have given Jeri Manthey a good run for her money for Ultimate Survivor B****. Like Twila said, the only reason she was offended by the remark about the labor distribution was because it was true. I WOULD like to know who flipped their vote, tho; I was expecting a 4-4 split. So who besides Leanne, Scout, Twila, and Ami voted for Mia as well? I missed the section where the votes were shown. This means Eliza is probably history now, which is fine with me. As for the men, who KNOWS who's gonna be the next one to go? I'm still trying to figure out what all is going on with them. I understand they want to get rid of the "threats" but first of all, if they're gonna do that they need a better understanding of who the threats actually are -- Brady, Chad, and now as it turns out John K. are all more threatening IMO than the two they've gotten rid of, and not one single vote has gone down against any of those three. What they're gonna end up doing at this rate is getting rid of all their strong players and losing to the women. Sarge and his mouth can only carry that team so far, and I'm expecting a backlash against that whole routine, quite honestly. Also, Chris and Travis are IMO virtually worthless and should be gone by now.

    I'm not very happy that Mia and John are gone simply because they were two of the more entertaining people out there. Scout and Rory on the other hand....zzz.

    Lisa is the one who flipped her vote.

    I had thought that maybe she was going to try to blame it on Eliza, the known vote-switcher (indicating some devious strategy), but according to the Survivor Insider, when she cast her vote, Lisa said something like "I'm only voting for you because I'm sure you won't be going home"...... [color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color][color=red]*[/color]?!?

    John K was great, I was also hugely relieved he didn't just give immunity to a hottie, but I have to say that the men's team is kind of a big snooze to me. I can only identify Sarge, Rory and Chad by sight.

    I am sooooo glad that Mia is gone. I'm pretty sure that Twila's misspelling was an accident, but I think "ME-a" is a good description of her

    Well this is only the second season I've watched Surivior, like most shows of that type it's cut throat and backstabing. But then that must be the only way to get ahead in the game. No favorite player as of yet, let the best game player win.

    Well, the men just get STUPIDER and STUPIDER. Wouldn't it make more sense to at least keep a COUPLE of athletic, intelligent players on your team so you don't get your butts kicked on every challenge between now and the merge? I think it's an amazingly chauvinistic attitude to think that you don't seem to need anyone athletic and intelligent because you're just competing against a bunch of girls anyway. [Plus I'm extra annoyed because Brady was hot!! :D Not that you'd especially have to be to be the best looking one in THAT bunch anyway....] I guess we can see why Sarge is a DRILL sargeant and not a COMBAT sargeant because this kind of strategy would have gotten him blown up a long time ago! Chris is useless, Travis is useless, and Rory has now taken INEPT to a whole new level. Plus they're ALL annoying, except for John K. Apparently the tribes are going to be mixed up next week and I'm rather annoyed about that because I wanted to see the women kick more butt for a couple more weeks. Though at least it might help get rid of some of the stupid dynamics currently going on on the men's side. However, it might keep Eliza around longer than she deserves to be, because every edition has to feature some Cute Young Thing who makes it to the final 4 or almost just because she's a Cute Young Thing; I was hoping we'd be spared that this time around.

    [I'm pretty sure I misspelled "sargeant" but apparently I'm so far off I can't even find it in my handy-dandy spelling dictionary; if anyone knows the correct spelling, please let me know...... ; Ggranny, have you been watching this thread at all?? ]

    I agree with your whole post, JonnyCoop. Rory and Sarge are quite annoying and the two of them together nearly unbearable!
    Eliza annoys me, too, because she just can't seem to shut up.
    I did enjoy how the women behaved while Mas(the native man) was with them...they seemed to get along for awhile and they really respected him(as they should).
