OK I found it.  It's basically Jonas (the chef) eating and talking about food.  He sounds like Boston Rob but more of a foodie Tounge1.gif

I was very surprised at who they voted out. Jonas was a good provider and they could have used that a few more. I though Leif was the more physical threat of that tribe but guessing behind the scenes Jonas must have been a bigger strategic threat. Cause I never really saw him coming up with strategy orw
Working people. Jonas kept quietly following Colton and that kind of bugged me.

How crazy is Tarzan? He should go soon because he cannot be trusted to keep anything a secret, he blurts it all out at tribal.

Of the people on the chopping block I think either Leif or Jonas would have been fair game.  They were in what seems to be a fairly tight alliance and the rest of that tribe were not really allied at all.  Despite what we might think of Leif I can see that the other team would be seeing him as less of a threat than Jonas purely due to his size, just like Survivors always seem to assume older = deadweight in challenges even when they prove themselves more physically able than some of the younger ones.  Now that Jonas is gone Leif is likely to go next unless somehow the guys manage to pull together a guy alliance but given that Tarzan is, well, Tarzan I can't see that happening.  Even though he's probably completely annoying to live with he's a great person to keep around for an easy choice to vote out later down the track.

It looks like the girls are going to pull together next ep too, so I reckon the boys could all be on the chopping block soon.

Finally, we get a season that is actually enjoyable biggrin.gif

That was good. This really is a season with some strategy (and some stupid play by Chelsea) with a few people who seem to know what they are doing. Tarzan though, that guy is a complete space cadet.

Interesting to see Leif knew who to vote out, we really don't get to see much of him so he probably isn't going much further but he's gotten a lot further than I expected when he was first introduced.  Next week it looks like Kim's been found out as the person calling the shots so it could get very dirty from here on out.

Wouldn't you love to have him as your surgeon?  I can't imagine that doing this will do him any favours professionally, there is no way I would want him touching me.  

This is the best season we have had for ages, the are really playing the game.  I agree about Leif, he is a non player in terms of how much camera time he gets but clearly in involved enough to know what is really going on.

Smart move from the women to band together, they have some power now and if they fall for the guys tricks next ep they are just silly, although it looks like are targeting Cat so that could be a slam dunk for them

What did you think of the slide??  How much fun would that have been.

Excellent the girl's came together, although not all of them.  Christina and Alicia voted for Tarzan.  It is good to see some strategy definitely this season.

Jen, that slide looked so steep, I would have been a bit scared going down that one!!

BUMP!

Go the girls, I wonder wether any of the boys will be able to swing them away from the all girls alliance or not.  I see that Tarzan seems to be in with the girls too, I am guessing that they have realised that it would be a smart move to drag him along to the finale as he most likely wouldn't ice up votes from the jury.

Jen

#62 Cheryl_v

Posted 14 April 2012 - 07:21 PM

Yeah I think Tarzan is totally this season's goat. I think he's just there for votes until F4 to help them get rid of Alicia, Christina and Cat so the final 3 can be Chelsea/Kim/Sabrina.  He's smart enough to know they are using him but conceited enough to think it's for a different reason.

Really, if Kim doesn't win the editing is all wrong.  The people being voted out seem overall likely to congratulate good play rather than take it super personally and the stuff with Chelsea today looks like foreshadowing that she won't win because she made promises she had to break.

#63 Scootaloo

Posted 14 April 2012 - 07:30 PM

I agree Cheryl, Kim is my pick for the win at this stage too.  She is, so far, showing to be a very smart player.

Ponderosa 1
Ponderosa 2

There can't be much happening at Ponderosa, only 2 eps for the last two weeks and all they seem to do is talk about food.  One thing I noticed is that Jay reminds me a lot of JT, they have fairly similar accents.  It's just that Jay's social game wasn't as strong as JT's and of course he didn't have a Stephen to help him.

#65 Scootaloo

Posted 19 April 2012 - 02:21 PM

Oh goodness Troy (I refuse to call him Troyzan) is losing it, the producers must be loving him this season.

I think there was a chance tonight to make quite a power play and change the game completely and Christina and Alicia should have gone with the remaining men.  If they played along to Troy's plan they could have gotten to the end with him and you can guarantee that no one on the jury would vote for him as they all seem to hate him.  He even had issues with the  guys already voted out.  But silly girls will realise too late that they do sit at the bottom when it is too late.

Nice to see the Survivor auction back, we haven't had it for a few seasons, I wonder if Sprint are not sponsors anymore as the message from home usually come via a sprint phone.

I don't think it was entirely Alicia and Christina's fault, I think Tarzan would have been a large part of why the votes didn't go the way Troy wanted them to.  The editors' storyline for this season is quite dull, there are really no surprises in any episode and they haven't managed to find a really good narrator for the season either.  I suspect that's because the best narrator would be Kim but if she's going to win they can't have her narrating.  If Colton hadn't had Bill voted off he would have made a really good narrator.

Overall I would have to say this is a better season than the last two have been but it's still not a great season.  They have to do better in casting than this.

Posted 23 April 2012 - 12:38 PM

How stupid is Tarzan!? Its obvious there is a girl alliance who are voting off the guys one by one and he votes for leif!? They could have voted kim out with just 3 votes! Well it would have been a draw. He doesn't seem to care whether he gets voted off or not.

I don't think it's that Tarzan doesn't care if he gets voted off, I think he's trying to be the literal last man standing and hoping the other guys on the jury vote for him for that reason.  It worked for Chris in Survivor Vanuatu after all.  The difference is that other people like Chris, no-one seems to really like or respect Tarzan.

I think it depends on the location, my guess is that they do the best the can depending on how remote the location is. Some areas may not have a local hotel etc that they can utilise, so it has to be tents.  Some seasons do get a pretty good ride though, don't they?

Tarzan is miscalculating - nobody is going to vote for an annoying plastic surgeon to win $1 million. If they don't like the final 3 much it almost always turns into biggest sob story wins. "Help me I'm a plastic surgeon" isn't going to cut it.

Possibly, but he hasn't really done much to protect himself.. if Troy goes next, then he will be after him. But all he has to do is start working Christina & Alicia. Because after the guys go, those two will be gone next. And they would have to be stupid to not realise that. This season has been pretty disappointing as there haven't been any really street wise, savvy players. You look at someone like Russell or Rob, those guys were working 24/7 on developing solid alliances, constantly adapting their game plan as people got voted off. This season, there are no strong players, no real solid alliances.

Yeah good point. I don't think he really cares about winning, he seems as though he just wanted to appear on Survivor. You get some contestants that appear like they are fighting for their lives, just to avoid getting voted off, he's really ambivalent as are quite a few others.

yup, I feel the same. I think part of the problem, is the way in which the producers of the show choose the contestants. Rather than going for interesting people, people that will entertain, compete, extroverts etc they have chosen people because they are attractive, their occupation or whatever. I mean would Lief have made the show if he wasn't a dwarf? He's as dull as dishwater! And hardly any of them seem competitive, remember players like Rob, Ozzy etc they were so determined in challenges, half the players are just ... meh... Troy being the exception. Even Jay, when his head was on the chopping block, opted out of the challenge so he could have beer n pizza, then got voted off.... would Ozzy have done that!?
