    Wow, how things change quickly in this game. Malcolm goes from the decimated Matsing tribe to Tandang, which has won almost every challenge. He manages to get into the majority alliance with Peter, who shares that they have an idol, and Malcolm has an idol in his pocket. What a reversal of fortune! The question remains will he remain loyal to Denise going forward when there's a merge.

    Denise went from a horrible situation to one that's only slightly better. Now Kalabaw is being exposed. They got beat by Tandang in almost every challenge, winning only the first one in a very close finish I do believe, but because they came in second out of three every other time, they still had immunity. Now there's nowhere to hide. Assuming there's a merge at 10 people remaining, if they don't win the next two immunity challenges, they'll be at a disadvantage entering the merge.

    This Wednesdays tribal was a great one, all the immunity idols are out in the open and neither had to be played. That was a great move waving it out there before the vote and then not playing it. :)

    It was a great move .. (not so) poor Jeff was so entrenched at getting a repeat player out of the game that he forgot about saving his own hide. Jeff had his chance to go far in the game last week and blew it as evidenced by this week.

    Boy I was really hoping that Penner would go the distance, it's really too bad that Abi won immunity but I give her credit for holding out in the food challenge to buy the advantage.

    Agreed on Penner

    And I really am starting to feel somewhat sad for Abi, she just don't get it, and most likely never will

    I was hoping for Penner, but he was in a corner. For him to have won, he would have had to dodge a thousand bullets and if he'd have pulled it off, I would have considered it one of the biggest coups ever in Survivor. I think the only one that would have been close is when Chris won despite being the lone male in the final 6 or 7 people may seasons back. I just think it's very unlikely to win without some sort of alliance to get you to the final 3 (or 4).

    At this point I'm going to have to hope for Malcolm. Denise is starting to grate on me a bit. She's smart but taking a holier than thou attitude. That being said, she's one tough cookie.

    I'm disappointed that Abi is still around, but I guess it makes for good TV - can't really have good without evil. :)

    I have a feeling he'll go soon, but I'm really pulling for Michael, he's the one true survivor of the series taking that pig out...

    And she's gone. Yay! I have to hope Michael or Malcolm wins this season, they are playing the best game.

    Interesting that nobody sees Lisa as a threat, was she playing sad little shy girl in the beginning so she could come on strong at the end or did she really just start figuring the game out after her brother left? She may be playing for an award instead of a million bucks. :)

    If memory serves me, Lisa mentioned on air that she had finally come to understand the game and that because of that, she would now implement a strategy. I'm thinking this came about a few weeks into the season and long before her brother came to visit. I think her "poor me" phase ended once she figured out the game.

    But I could be wrong... :p

    CBS really has to stop having the Season finale on the same night as an NFL double header. I forced myself to stay up and watch long enough to see who won but that was it, I'll have to catch the rest tonight.

    After the last immunity challenge was over it was pretty easy to see who was going to win.

    Chris also survived the first tribal council that season after being the goat in the first immunity challenge.

    Whomever survived that final vote, Denise or Malcolm, I knew was going to win, as Lisa and Skupin had no chance. Went from Matsing decimation to top dog. Well-played.

    I would love to be a contestant on this show, after 12 years I still dream about it each time the finale comes and they tease the next season.

    Just like I say each season, maybe next year. :)
