Had I not been biased, this would have been one of my favorite episodes, especially the RC catfight. But sad, sad, sad.
I know it's bad to complain too much when there are pros in the cons, but I feel expressive.
CANDICE - Oh my gosh, Russell really knows how to work these 'dumbass' girl alliances. I felt Candice wasn't convinced how untrustworthy Russell is, though, so that might be a part of the gap. But still, she would've gone a lot farther with the Heroes than with the Villains!! Why, oh why?? -_-
COLBY - Oh my goodness, seriously Colby?!? When in confessionals you talked about how 'this may potentially change the game's direction', you have decided to give up the clue for silence??? Worse is the fact your position is vulnerable and unknown?!? I know how he likes to have 'no-game' times in rewards, but he just wasted the chance to make this episode more exciting!! Why?? -_-
And to think, they both are Heroes, shows how they are not so strategic (especially Colby, Candice might be an exception, she was just a victim of 'HII means trust' strategy).
I am so sad Amanda is voted off. This week has been terrible for me in terms of reality shows (except Apprentice), my favorites out, my least faves not out. BUT, the good thing is, she went off as a fighter, a strategist, a threat. Never had anyone tried to get the clue off someone's hands. Oh how things might have changed, though, if COLBY and/or Amanda has suggested to read the clue aloud at the reward. It's a fair compromisation, and the best solution if they want to have the possible benefit without being too aggressive.
All in all, though, other than appreciating how this episode went down, and complaining about specific people, I'd say almost every one of them got surprised or tricked. Russell, Candice, Colby, Rupert, Danielle, Parvati, Amanda. All names there except Jerri and Sandra, and those are who I'm rooting for now, Parvati in third. (<Weird how one episode made me switch from rooting for Heroes to rooting for Villains)
