After a slightly lethargic past few episodes, this one really shifted into high gear, IMO. The deception! The switching! The battle of wits! This episode was all over the place tonight, and I thought it was quite exciting. Sad to see Joe goe like that though, it was really a shame.
Joab, I agree with you - Erinn is the key to getting rid of Coach. If Brendan can sway back Taj and Stephen and get Erinn on his side, he'll have all the votes needed to get rid of Coach. However, I don't think Coach is the greatest threat right now. If Brendan wants to see his alliance thrive, he's got to get rid of Tyson first. Coach, if he gets the numbers, will be easy to rid of. Tyson is going to be a lot harder to win support to remove though. (By the way, Tyson, please get off my television screen and don't come back, you hypocrite).
Why does it feel like that Stephen is holding a ridiculously high amount of power in this game? I can't be the only one who's wary of him. Granted, he needs to backstab as many people as he can if he wants to stay in now (let's face it, the only reason he's still here is because he's a pawn), but, well, it just doesn't feel right.
Now too, I can see why Jalapao lost all those challenges. They were pitiful in that IIC. I mean, seriously, Debbie is apparently one of the biggest physical players left. (I'm kidding, there probably just wasn't much of her to hold up on that pole).
Finally, thank you survivors for not picking a dumb name for the new tribe (Nobag, I'm looking at you).
