I like this game more then most other because it really does a great job of exposing flaws, whether its character flaws or thought process flaws.

Hunger, fatigue and minor injuries over a long period of time with a bag of money at the end ups the paranoia and the risk versus reward decision making.

Zeke had every kind of advantage in this game including an incredible final story in front of a jury, and in the span of probably a few hours he threw it away. He became that guy that now makes your paranoia rise when he's around. It was a stupid stupid move by him and on all sides. He's now the guy that went a step too far in the game and he burned a ton of good will.

Plus his strategy exposure at tribal went too far in making him look like a cerebral threat.

Ozzy was probably the absolutely right vote though because sure he brings in the food, but he's the biggest physical threat. But if they knew that Tai was sitting on a bunch of idols they'd realize that he's smartly playing the good guy who's not a threat in the game and he's clearing the deck to the end with every week that he slides under the radar as the dupe.

I did really like the moment after Ozzy fell off of the pole, that just seemed to be a nice sportsman ship moment from a guy in Tai that honestly respects other players.

However when Andrea came off of that pole and hit the ground that way, my first thought when she first was sitting there that there was a serious ankle injury or knee injury.

Yeah Tai is in a great spot right now if he doesn't do anything stupid. He's got the idols, he's very likeable, he just needs to not get paranoid and do something foolish.

With the double episode sending home Hali and Ozzy, from Pool A we have Rhettzky and Yoho going them. From Pool B, Surferguy hits the bench.

That was was an interesting pair of episodes. I, too, wonder what it is about Hali. She is either getting an edit where we're seeing nothing about her, or she just goes on these for the 'tropical vacation' part of it, 'cause she doesn't seem to be capable of doing pretty much anything.

Seems like Zeke started playing too hard too soon again. We'll see how that works out for him.

I've been thinking that it's not a big surprise that Ozzy went home. If I was the sort of Survivor who watched other seasons, I'd be targeting Ozzy, Micheala and Tai. They are solo immunity challenge beasts, and you want to take every opportunity you can to get rid of them (if you haven't already, by that point.)

Also, sorry for the update delay. I missed this weeks episode on Wednesday, then nipped right out of town for the weekend, where I had no real access.

I read an interview where she admitted to being distracted by thoughts of home in her first season but she said this season was her playing Survivor. I don't think she should have been cast.
