LAST EDITED ON 04-14-13 AT 02:41 PM (EST)
I'll start it this week:
1- Cochran: This is the guy we're supposed to root for? Yes, he is playing a smart game and it's funny to see him bumbling around but he's not a fascinating character. Just a nerd who was lucky enough to be picked up by casting and then finding a friendly camera.
2- Brenda: Now this is someone I would like to root for. Cute and perky but she must have turned down a few camera guys and they are paying her back. She wins the IC, scores a goal in the RC despite a bum leg, she's wiggled her way into the core alliance, she is in a great position to win and? Nothing. Survivor editors are shitty sometimes.
3- Dawn: She made another great move on Malcolm but saw it all thrown down the drain because Andrea couldn't control her libido. Now Dawn will have to live in the same shelter with two guys she betrayed. It will be 6 days at least before they can get rid of both. Not a healthy situation.
Jeff called them all savvy but, from my POV, the rest are idiots:
4- Phillip: In an episode I saw filled with tomfoolery, Phillip was the least foolish. His bluff at Tribal Council completely fooled Malcolm who burned some of his cards thinking he was toast. Unfortunately, he forgot one of BR's smartest rules: The Buddy System.
5- Eddie: I have to give it to him: He gets the girls and manages to stay safe week after week. I liked his answer to Sherri: I may be going home but I prefer playing my own game than being a puppet. If Malcolm gets 1 person out with his idol and then he and Reynold get the boot, that would mean Eddie is at F7 and would need only 4 challenge wins in a row to be in the F3. Not impossible.
6- Erik: He's in an even better position than Eddie but he stole his spot on the Favorites' team. He had nothing to say in his first season so why did they expect him to be entertaining this time?
7- Malcolm: For all his inability to read his former allies, the guy managed to keep his idol secret. That should give us one interesting Tribal Council because no one will expect he'll have one. But after that? What I'd really like to know is if he had his own idol at TC. Of course, he'll say he had it even in confessional because who would admit to being so stupid?
8- Andrea: She is fun to follow, cute and not a bad player but why did she have to flirt with Eddie. There are plenty of Survivor parties for that. If she doesn't get involved with Eddie then they can boot Malcolm without any drama.
9- Sherri: She thinks she'll be running the show after the next boot! Let me laugh at that. Why did she have to tell the Fans that she was looking for payback? They'll remember that if she ever needs their votes in the end.
10- Reynold: Why did he give his idol to Malcolm? I really wish we would have seen what would have happened if he had answered Malcolm's plea with: "Sorry buddy but I have to save my own skin."
Booted - Michael: At the start of the season, we thought he was a strategist but he did nothing noteworthy. A pawn from the start.
Ils sont fous, ces Romains!
