    Why do you think the entire house is backing them?

    Fear of standing up to bullies.

    That makes sense, but one would think that if enough people were united, the bully could be contained. Actually, the trainers could do a better job of controlling the situation.

    Bob calls them bullies in one of the article where he is interviewed. I wonder how much the trainers are really around. 2 hours here and there and at the weigh in?
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Bob is 46??? I had no idea! {picks self up off of floor}

    Anyway, I didn't like either Daphne or Conda much in this week's episode. I have at times had some sympathy for Daphne, but she was just as much of a brat this week as Conda has been. She took Dolvett away from Conda to punish Conda for being involved in voting off her brother? Is that it? And she was happy about "getting even?" Did anyone tell her it's a game and people will be voted off? Or anything else useful to being successful on the show and at the game? Ugh. And as much as I have hated a person on a TV show (which is to say, not really hated but I'd be happy if she were not on the TV), I hate Conda. And I think Kimmi is evil, too. Ugh.

    I will keep watching, but I fast forward through the annoying or boring parts. Okay, so mostly I watch the parts where Bob is working with or talking to his team. And laugh at him rolling his eyes at Dolvett.

    I think part of her reasoning was that if the black team lost a weigh-in, Conda would be the 'new person' in the team, rather than Daphne herself, and Conda would be voted out. I think little did she know (from coming into the game later) that there's a few teams that are controlling the entire house, namely the original green team and the original gray team, and to an extent the original purple team. If she really wanted to do some damage, she should have put those 6 individuals on a single team and everybody else on the other. That'd have forced them to break themselves apart if they ever lost a weigh-in.

    I believe it was Daphne, and he said something was making her look like a liar, as opposed to calling her a liar outright. IIRC.

    Fridge_Break, Thanks for the info. Maybe Daphne thought more people disliked Conda. But what a risk, since it really made it likely the Black team would lose the weigh-in. I wonder if Daphne gave up and gained weight on purpose, or if her body just reacted to having lost so much weight last week.

    I'm running out of people to root for. Everyone on Black Team who deliberately threw that weigh-in is an asshole and, if they did so at the suggestion of Conda, they are stupid as well. Did they not realize that significantly increased Daphne's chances of getting immunity for the week? Or were they seriously pinning all their hopes on Chris the entire time? (Who would have most likely ended up being the boot if Daphne had gotten Biggest Loser.) They ended up getting the result they wanted, but they lucked out big time in getting it.

    Daphne could have won biggest loser of the week and stayed on, but she had enough of the constant bullying from her "team" and her opponents. She threw the weighin so she could get the Hell out of the house.

    Conda smirked her way through another elimination and even took the opportunity to try to create more drama at the sendoff.
    But Daphne showed she has a measure of grace and self respect and left about the only way left to her.

    Yes she miscalculated with switching Conda and Jeremy. She miscalculated with lying to cover it up. But really I think she had no moves from the get go to avoid her fate.

    What I saw was that Conda manipulated her team mates and her buddies on the red team to ensure Daphne went home. But at what cost? Some of the black team members were ashamed of themselves and realised they failed to be true to themselves.

    Conda made them feel bad about themselves. She made them lose less weight than they could have on a show all about weight loss. She ****ed them. And they don't want to feel that way again. They will resent her for that.

    After Chris gets voted off the black team the rubber hits the road. No more easy pickin's. That's when we get our long awaited pleasure. Watching the arch skank Conda eat shit and die.

    I just realized that Daphne's switch-up meant that Conda got the unique experience of directly voting out each member of the Aqua team. I'm guessing that wasn't Daphne's original intention.

    Wow, Shay is looking good! I had wondered what happened to her, she weighed in the finale following her season and then they challenged her to run a marathon and we hadn't heard anything since. Good to see that she's looking so great.

    Also, additional info regarding the spoiler above...

    I'm super interested in all of the juicy gossip that has been swirling over this recently, but I'm still not going to watch the show. I'll spend my 2 hours doing more productive things. But I'll be following along week by week online

    I do feel kind of bad that I've skipped out on other seasons but this is the season I can't miss.

    Unless your name is Conda, you are not getting that much airtime. It took me about 4 weeks in to realize there was a player named Megan on there.

    Who's Megan?


    What's a shame is that I really like Emily, and I bet some of the others are kinda interesting too. Kim seems so determined, but she had let herself get pulled down to Conda's level of (im)maturity.

    Of course, starting off the season with 2 people who quit (at least one of them waited until the vote) was probably a bad sign. Most of these people just don't want to be there.

    I still think that splitting the teams up was a bad idea and contributed a lot to this. I don't think there would be all of this endless drama if they were playing the couples format and you don't get an entire team full of complete strangers. These people came onto the show thinking they were going to have the support from their partner, and when that was ripped out of their hands, they didn't have much else to turn to.

    That being said, Conda would bring on the drama and bullying regardless of the format or who was on her team. There's no getting around that.

    Also something interesting I read on Survivor Sucks? Someone noticed that no one has lost 100 lbs yet and they've had 8 weigh-ins. The closest is Buddy and he's at like 87 or so. In previous recent seasons, we've had contestants busting through the 100 barrier in as little as 6 weigh-ins. Now, the time in between each of them might be different for each season, and also I realize that a lot of the bigger guys got booted (or quit) early on, so that might be a factor as well, but it really seems like this group is losing weight at a lot slower pace than seasons' past. Probably because none of them are there for the right reasons anymore.

    All I say is, too bad it wasn't Conda. I'll leave it at that.
