    I hope Penner gets the $100K.

    If Lisa wins, will Tootie be on next season? Will this show become a path to revitalize your career?

    I know you're joking, but this isn't a case of stunt casting. She apparently applied, having been a long time Survivor fan. Sure, she's got some added benefits, but I bet there have been many, many more celebrities/athletes who have applied in the hopes of getting some air time and building their careers without making it through to the show.

    The being said, I'm certain this isn't the last we've heard of Lisa. She's already guest-hosted a couple of times on a daytime talk show, and it would not surprise me at all if she's getting sitcom offers now for next season. Bet she shows up as a guest on something before this season's out to test the waters.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. Meh, I am still not rooting for her to win.

    I usually prefer guys with shorter hair - but I love Malcolm with longer hair - if that picture is him.

    Just watched last week's episode in preparation for tonight.

    I think Malcolm is going to wish he had sealed Denise's trust by giving her the idol so she KNEW she wasn't going home. He's first up to get knocked out the second he doesn't win immunity, and he could use having Denise absolutely loyal to him.

    Frankly, when you look at the four that are left and how it's a 2-2 tie, Malcom/Denise are already at a disadvantage just because Malcolm is such a threat. IF they were serious about sticking together (we know Malcolm isn't, but still), it would have served them well to off Skupin or Lisa before their numbers became even. Anyhow.

    Looking forward to seeing their reaction to it being a F2. (It IS a F2, right? No other reason for the final episode to be the final four; it's usually a final five so you get three tribal councils, plus the jury is uneven).

    Agree with you there. And that he had a stupid reason for not giving it to her. Because really it was not a sure thing that Lisa/Michael would not have gone with Abbie to vote out Denise, unless there was much more conversation we did not see. I was prepared for a Denise blindside once Malcolm didn't give her the idol. Now I don't want him to win because he didn't give it to her. :lol:

    The Steelers game ran over and from what I understood, 60 minutes would be shown in its entirety, so I would say it's going to be closer to 9 before we get Survivor.

    So I am guessing that's why on my Canadian channels I've got some stupid "comedy"? Drats. Guess that means that once the winner is announced, I won't be hanging around. Haven't been getting enough sleep lately.

    And, now President Obama's speech is being carried live. I wonder if we are even going to get to see Survivor tonight?

    Is he being televised on Canadian channels? Why on earth would we have to him put up with him on our screens?

    Dunno. Guess well see.

    I feel like a horrible person for wanting to watch survivor, especially since I still have tears in my eyes, but I can only take so much of babies being killed. :(

    As I watch the challenge it struck me - the most mature people are in the final (except Penner. :(. )

    Some surprises from the jury - RC was a lot more mature and less bitter than I expected after Ponderosa, whereas Malcolm's reaction to Denise was more bitter than I thought he'd be, since he's been so understanding of this being a game all along.

    Lisa is doing a much better job than I would have guessed of making her case. I'd give it to her I were voting, but I don't really know which way the jury will go.

    My love of Penner is gone. Bitter and what he did to Lisa! But love her response.
    Skupin is delusional.
    Really have to winder on Edit of Denise. I just don't see it

    Wow -- Penner just lost all my respect. What a jackass thing to do to Lisa. Sore loser.

    I wonder why Denise didn't bring up how she originally came to Malcolm and was willing to tie the vote and that it was his own fault for forcing her to make other plans

    Wow Penner is bitter! Not really surprised he outed Lisa, but I loved her oomment back, "what did you do when you were 12?".

    did penner tell everyone he was nominated for an oscar? he had the opportunity to be F3 w/ blair and skupin, he should be angry with himself more than them.

    I was disappointed in Penner too and impressed with Lisa's response. Don't think she'll get it, but she had one of the best final tribals ever in my opinion.

    Denise and Lisa both look great! Nice to see that they are tastefully cleaned up and not overly made up like the women usually are. Not a big surprise that Denise won, but I found I was really pulling for Lisa after the past couple of episodes. Although I am glad that Malcolm saw past his bitterness and voted for her...probably the only vote that was really FOR Denise vs against Skupin/Lisa.

    After the FTC I am a little surprised Denise won. Wonder if Penner swayed votes?
    Not that Denise doesn't deserve the win. She does
    And Lisa probably has revived her career so she still wins.I think Skupin did not deserve to win

    So even Abi voted for Denise?? That's surprising.

    Happy with the results

    Yeah, that one shocked me! I thought Abi might have voted for Lisa, given how well Lisa tolerated Abi's bullshit.

    This is the one season that I really don't know what way the fan vote is going to swing. Usually it's a landslide victory, but I think it can go any way between Denise, Skupin, Penner, Lisa, and Malcolm.

    i've been expecting denise to win for a long time if she could get to the finale. except for nutjob abi and malcolm, no one else with an axe to grind against her made it to the jury. everyone else had real or imagined reasons to dislike blair and skupin.

    Not surprised Denise won. The Tandang people were bitter, Lisa had never won a challenge, and Mike was a returning player. No matter who they took with them, they were going to be 2 & 3.

    Penner really was a bitter ass at final TC. Abi was so shiny I got distracted from what she was saying.

    :lol: @ the Skupin bandage reel.
