    If his head is not on the chopping block next week I will be surprised. I couldn't live with someone like that.

    Yet he said as a Republican, he didn't believe in handouts. But when it suited him, he begged and groveled for a handout from the women, the idol.

    I felt bad for him initially, but after last week's incredible events, he revealed himself to be a privileged, spoiled brat and bully. I hope he gets blindsided holding that idol.

    Also lets not forget he is sucking off his parents. If he doesn't take handouts why doesn't he have a JOB.

    Talk about karma. What a contrast between tribes. The misfits vs the Greek Gods (as Colton put it). Watching Leif getting thrown aside in the immunity challenge was hilarious!

    At first I thought the new tribe breakdown looked good for the remaining women, but after thinking about it, I think the men will have the upper hand. Assuming Colton's tribe keeps losing, they will likely vote out their 2 remaining women, which would leave only the 4 women in the other tribe to go up against the 7 total remaining men. Of course I don't know how it will play out, but that's my take on it.

    Can't believe all these people follow Colton... guy was a complete outcast at the beginning of the season now they all follow him like sheep...

    Agreed.

    There must be a lot they're not showing on TV.

    Season after season, teams vote off their strongest members way before the merge. Makes no sense, as they'll just continue to lose challenges. I hope they lose everything going forward and get booted one by one.

    I think it's what I call the "car wreck principle". You know, that simple fender bender you saw on the way to work last week. Nothing major at all, but you had to look, and you had to say something about it to at least one co-worker when you got in......

    I sorta feel bad that the "one world" aspect of Survivor is history. I liked the dynamic of having male vs. female tribes on the same beach. It was different. Now, it's just like any other Survivor, which isn't necessarily bad; it's just that I was enjoying the other format. From a game play standpoint, I was sad to see Monica go. She was clearly passionate about the game and just had the bad luck of being on the wrong side of the numbers and appearing to be too much of a threat. From a real-world standpoint, she's the wife of a former football player, so she's clearly not hurting financially. I would rather see someone like the "struggling stand-up comic" win the million. Of course, he's gone, too, thanks to Colton the bully. He's in a powerful position right now, holding the idol and everyone buying his B.S. Unless the misfit tribe wins immunity next week, Christina is next, and then the women would be at a huge disadvantage, although if there's a medical evacuation next week, that could throw everything off.

    Exactly, I think he is good to keep people watching the show also. I have a feeling production had something to do with him getting the idol... Find it strange that it was found so fast and the girl could give it to a guy but couldn't use it herself... Then she doesn't continue looking for the womens.

    How's she to know there's another idol or that she'd have to give it away, too? A guy could have found it and had to share it with a female... remember they're sharing the area. The idol wasn't gender specific & said what to do if either sex found it.

    I usually feel bad when someone gets taken out of the game for a medical issue, but not this time. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. If only they had voted Alicia out, then this could have been the best episode of Survivor ever. Like Jonas said - karma!

    I'd thought every adult in the US has heard of appendicitis. Guess not.

    Took the words out of my mouth! I could not believe the sense of entitlement Alicia and Colton felt, nor could I believe the lack of grace they displayed as the "rulers" of their tribe. In the past, other leaders (Coach, for example) would be honest and tell the odd-man-out they were going next, but those other leaders would be fair and say it's the nature of the game, etc. They didn't sugar-coat it, but also weren't mean and petty to the degree Colton and Alicia were. I am so glad he's gone, but really hoped to see Alicia voted out of their small tribe tonight...

    I don't know what was better, Colton getting appendicitis or Katt not knowing what it was. :D

    Exactly .. It's one thing to be in the game, but there really does come a point when it's just being mean

    That being said, neither Alicia nor Colton was going to win the Million. OK, if Colton took Alicia and Leif then MAYBE he would have won, but Leif probably would have won in that case as an "I'm not giving it to either Alicia or Colton vote."

    So, in retrospect, I think it's actually a good thing for us viewers that Colton is now gone.

    If you're going to discuss episodes other than the one in the thread title please start a new thread.

    Since the thread was started for the first episode of the season, I think that it is valid to discuss all the episodes of the season. If the discussion on this thread continued into next season, you have a valid point.
