    We'll miss you Jenny but I totally understand giving the Philip show a pass. He doesn't bother me at all so I'm actually enjoying this season alot. Doesn't hurt that I have loved seeing Reynold & Eddie's alliance of cool kids completely fall apart the past few weeks. Its amusing that neither has a clue how to play this game yet are called "fans"!

    I barely noticed Phillip in this week's episode. I thought it was the Reynold show. I'd really like an episode without him throwing things.

    Philip is just one factor for me. It's more a general pissedoffedness that they are presenting this sham as "favourites" rather than going with new players (and maybe 1-2 returnees), which has been interesting the past few seasons. I just couldn't get excited about it, and tuning in last night didn't spark my interest at all sadly. Plus, I have enough tv on the go, especially w BB Canada on three nights a week!

    But do carry on - I'm not watching the Bachelor either, but enjoying that thread nonetheless

    Yes, and everyone knows that everyone else is in and has a codename. I loved Andrea getting mad that Phillip was giving names to outsiders.

    how long has it been since we've had a season with ALL new players?

    never mind - it was just a couple seasons ago (One World). it just feels like we've had an endless parade of "favorites" shoved down our throats.

    It makes for "better" and "more exciting" seasons, according to Jeff & Co. The unfortunate coincidence that One World sucked while it being the only season out of the past 5 to not have returning players doesn't bode well for an entirely new cast at some point down the road.

    I liked One World But I guess seeing a competent, sane person strategize her way to victory isn't for everyone (and doesn't make for high ratings).

    The big negative for One World is that it included a hateful crazy, and once he was mercifully gone the season got a bit boring (although Kim was great). I don't need non-stop drama, but a great player/strategist basically owning the season isn't very memorable, unfortunately. Just wish it weren't hard to find maybe two great strategists/players in a season.

    Reynold might be a bigger idiot than Eddie. Eddie's docile, so there's no expectations. Reynold you can see has some intelligence, but he remains antagonistic. As soon as it was clear he was in a minority, he should have distance himself from his group. He should have sucked up to whoever would have let him and found where the weakness in the main alliance was and worked his way in there. He hasn't tried to make a connection with anyone. He remains only because of his physical strength. Other than that, he means absolutely nothing to anyone. And he's doing nothing to change that.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    He keeps saying that he has no respect for anyone else there. Um, ok. How do you think they feel about that, genius?

    AKA, with my delusional personality, I will get my arse handed to me by a badly botoxed and Bullock-lipped aging Barbie, and somehow still believe that I can control the game, even when hanging on by my jock (and I don't mean underwear, I mean Eddie)

    A few musings after finally getting a chance to watch this ep...

    You would think it would be impossible to have worse tats that Matt, but Lil' Hantz' new ones are horrific

    Reynold is clueless. You don't get the vote you wanted, then you go back to camp and all out all the others, saying you didn't like any of them. Seems to me if you are down to two in your alliance, you are going to need someone from the other group. Dont alienate them. He got lucky this week since Laura was so inept in challenges, but dude, at some point you will need them. Weren't you supposed to have watched the show before????

    And this really has morphed into the Phillip show. He's not a crazy this time around, but sheesh it's really getting boring this time.

    BTW, does anyone know if Colton was asked back for this show? I'd hate him, but he'd be at least entertaining, unlike these "Favorites".

    And finally, evidently Probst is getting hammered on social media for this season. Not be a good few months for Jeff, with his talk show being cancelled and this boring ep of Survivor.

    I know everybody is probably watching Worlds at the moment, so I'm not expecting much conversation about tonight's ep, but...

    Brandon is such a little piece of shit. I seriously hope that with his out-of-control psychopath tirade, and his uncle Willie's violence stint on Big Brother, that this is the last time we will EVER have a Hantz on a reality competition show. Brandon's behavior almost makes me wish that Russell was brought back for this season instead (I can't believe I just said that) -- at least he was just a terrible social player, he didn't go on with verbal attacks and get so out of control.

    Whoa that behavior was awful! Just like why'd he even get on again? So he could do that! Of course.

    That was a whole lot of crazy and one of the most bizarre episodes in Survivor history. Brandon's behavior was very disturbing. I, too, hope it's the last we see of any member of the Hantz family.
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    Yes, such a strange and sad episode. During the impromptu TC - I was watching the other Favs and their reactions.
    Corinne - have not seen much of her this season, but the one we knew from the past seems to have shown herself.
    I felt really bad for Dawn and Andrea - they seemed genuinely upset and concerned for Brandon. And Brenda (how little we have seen of her) was upset and knew it was not good. Every fav seemed rattled, but Corinne and Phillip were strange.
    Corrine seemed to be both upset and enjoying it a little. Just strange. Also Reynold seemed to be entertained.
    I find it strange for someone to be so entertained when someone else is breaking down.

    Philliip - seemed quite controlled for someone that seems unstable during Brandon's rants. Phillip is also quite capable in challenges. We are seeing 2 Phillips.
    I hope they show some of the aftermatch conversations.
    I found it interesting how the tribe handled it - instead of throwing a challenge - just forfeit openly.
    I think Jeff handled it very well, getting Brandon to stand by him, keeping him separate and massaging his shoulders, trying to calm him down.
    I felt like I should not have watched, but part of me is thinking - it can't be this bad, why are they letting this be on tv. Have they gone too far?
    Wonder what the fallout will be. Hope no more Hantzs - Jeff is right - something in their blood. Brandon sounded like Russell at times.
