Dan reminded me of some angry cartoon turtle at FTC. And for sure, he and Marty voted on straight strategy.

In the shoes of Chase or Sash, I'd rather risk it. Taking Dan is (should be?) a good way to have a no-vote chump in the F3, and you lose if Fabio gets there anyway, so what's the difference? If you boot Holly at F5, you still have to get Fabio out to win...but when he doesn't win the IC and you actually boot Fabio, you're now in the finals with two players you perceive to be weak players (I assume Sash and Chase each thought the other one would get shut out).

Me too. They might have been biased towards women though. I definately think these balance something with your arms for a long time are biased against women. (At least women who don't habitually lift 80 lb dogs and do P90X.)

Well, to be fair, why would he have to lie when he didn't even know what was going on?

I respected Sash's game until tonight, he's is just too predictable, like a poker lagtard who won't stop raising.

Or my favorite is how "I don't want to waste any time..." then they inevitably launch into a diatribe about being a fan that wastes 30 seconds

Cesternino just not-so-subtly plugged a possible Parvati podcast in January. Sweet.

I agree. He really surprised me during FTC. I honestly think he just super struggled with the cut throat part of the game when it came to axing the people he cared about. He dragged his feet and was awkward up until he was forced to vote out people he didn't want to vote out. Once, the deed was done, he seemed more at peace with it just being part of the game.

I'm curious how he would have handled being on the other end of the ax.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

No Rob/Russell announcement is meh, the show could really stumble if they cast another group with no passion or personality. Atleast Brenda looked good.

I like Fabio quite a bit more after his reunion show answers.

They are going for the Guatemala type of surprise during the premier (to stun the casual fan). Besides the rumors and hype can only help as an incentive to keep the surprise under wraps.

It will be made clear when each tribe starts out with 5 women and 4 men

Well, you are keeping someone who can't win immunity even if he tried, and he also has zero incentive to even try. So you eliminate someone who could potentially help you beat Fabio and make yourself 50/50 to go home if Fabio wins. Although, in hindsight, keeping Dan might have caused some vote spliting among the jurors who voted based on strategy. (That last bit was a joke.)

I don't like it. But we've covered that I'm an arrogant B who thinks she doesn't have to be up against little goats in order to win. So, natch, I'm getting no votes anyway and should just take who I'd like to see win a million. I'm not like Russell, just screwing my friends out of their shot for no personal gain.
