Since my friend Aruba doesn't seem to be around, I'll start this list but with Iltarion also MIA, I hope we can get some people to jump in and post their list.
1- Ralph: I really liked it when "Steel Wool" stepped in as leader of Zapatera's shelter building operation immediately after RussHell said he'd be the leader. Dangerous? Certainly. Funny? Even more so.
2- Phillip: What if the question mark wasn't about his occupation but whether or not he was retired? I know... but imagine he was acting as Rob's spy to infiltrate that small cell of terrorists that had a weapon of A$$ destruction! Either way, Phillip was hilarious and turned TC into the Phillip Sheppard show. Oooha!
3- David: He expressed what I've been saying about RussHell: "He hasnít won and itís no mystery why he hasnít won, itís the way he chose to play the game both times. Heís too aggressive; he wants the blood on his hands.Ē How can you not like such brilliance?
4- Andrea: She could have chopped off her foot but she was going to show the tribe she was a worker! How can you not like someone who does a little prayer to get Boston Rob as teammate instead of RussHell?!
5- Stephanie: Yes, she wanted to be with RussHell but I have hope that her words: "Of course I said yes" meant that she was leading Russell on. I'd like to see him getting outwitted by someone he trusts. Imagine her getting the idol from him but then going to David and Sarita to vote Russell out...Poetic justice.
6- Mike: He had it all in this episode: We got to know him, the players he likes and his plans. Only thing missing was a laugh or two.
7- Kristina: I was surprised to see that some people saw her negatively. She showed me a lot in determination in finding that idol and she quickly understood that Rob wasn't with her. Could she have tried harder to get in with him instead of targeting him? When somone tells you he doesn't know who he's voting for after an IC loss, that means he's voting against you.
8- Sarita: I'll need more but someone that keeps track of the players going off with RussHell knows something about this game. And I thought she looked really good.
9- Natalie: I'd like to think that Rob's words to her: "You know what you are doing" are prophetic. It would be quite a story to go from target in episode 1 to winner but it's a long road.
10- Rob: It was a pretty dry episode by Rob's standard but that deal at TC, trying to get the idol from Kristina was tyupical Robfadda: Scare them into doing what you want.
11- Ashley: Not much from her except she was really trying during that challenge.
12- Matthew: I think we were supposed to like Matthew but he didn't do much except having the nicely placed confessionals.
13- RussHell: The guy says he's a new man but he can't help falling into the same strategy as before. I don't think he's playing with Zombies this time.
14- Steve: He told us that Purple was powerful. He acted as a good worker bee so he hid his leadership tendencies. I hope the greeting he gave RussHell wasn't an indication of how he will vote.
15- Krista: Another worker bee, she didn't say a word so I can't really rate her.
16- Grant: We know he's the muscle in Rob's alliance but he didn't contribute anything to the episode.
17- Julie: Who? Even the camera couldn't find her.
All Alone: Fransaskatchewan: She had some good confessionals. We'll probably waste time with her on the island because she'll never sweep the challenges.
Ils sont fous, ces Romains!
