NEXT TIME on Survivor:

Albert tries to make a big move (securing both the Savaii votes) but Coach is on to him
Albert shown placing chess/checkers?

I wouldn't mind seeing Albert leave. I've never really been into him.

But the way CBS is pushing Ozzy does not bode well. :groan:

 :lol: I know right! Last season we NEVER got RI scenes, except the duels/when they arrive during the ending credits. Then all of the sudden we get Ozzy being fisher boy and all :res:

I hope hope hope Keith can win the duels and re-enter, and Whitney can win immunity to keep herself safe, she was shockingly good at the challenges. Though if she wins.. I wonder if Coach will vote out Albert. However I haven't seen the spoilers yet, but I don't think Albert will leave, like last season they give us false hope :res:

Does the title "Running the Show" simply infer that nothing special will happen in this episode? (Savaii members get eliminated one by one?)

This season has been ruined by Cochran. I really wished to see Jim, Ozzy, Keith, Whitney team up against him but no it all went backwards.

This season has been pretty awful. I am not a big Dawn fan but why is she going home? Poor Whitney!

I don't see his game as good.

He's just upset because some of his tribe members made him upset. He would have no power if he wasn't a rat which is he is.

I think people are upset because he didn't sit back and let the "pretty people" tell him what to do. He took the game into his own hands and felt ostracized. Even if I had a 1 in 8 shot at going home, I'd flip. I'd rather stay then have a 1 in 8 shot at going due to the Purple Rock.

Agreed. It was Savaii's stupidity to cause them to be Pagonged. All they had to do was make Cochran feel part of the tribe, and he wouldn't have flipped...

I think Cochran has played a stupid game, he could have made himself more likable around camp, he could have tried harder in the challenges, but the biggie for me, he should have volunteered to go to Redemption Island and manned up. He would have earned some respect in camp. Who besides Brandon has an ounce of trust in Cochran?  :torche

Hello everyone, this is my first post in a very long time.

I believe the biggest mistake Savaii made was voting out Elyse.  :(  She may have been close to Ozzy, but she was way more trustworthy than cochran!!!  :tup:

I think the main problem with Cochran is that he is a nerd on a tribe where most of the people can do well in challenges, and two of the most important people of that tribe were classic "jocks".  Ozzy, especially, is one who prefers challenges to a lot of strategy.  I doubt any nerd would do well on such a tribe.

And actually, I think the Nicaragua season was worse!  I despised Na'Onka and wanted her gone, not Kelly B!  Once Kelly B. was gone, I had little interest in that season.   :groan:

Anyone could tell Upolu is a big happy love tribe, and Cochran should be smart enough to know he is last on the totem pole still, this time he dropped down a place. Its not rocket science to know that 6th place is better than 7th place :lol: I see his move as a personal move, not strategic. He did not fit in, so he saw this at the chance to get back at his old tribemates. Unless he can wins the Final 7 Immunity Challenge, which hes proven to be bad at, he is most probably out. To add on top of it, various Savaii members HAVE helped Cochran get to where he is, IE,

Ozzy- He sacrificed his own life! Over Cochran, and even trusted him with the idol. Not to forget he made him stay over Semhar & Papa Bear.
Jim- He made sure Semhar went over him, made sure Papa Bear went over him, and devised the plan to save him and vote out Elyse!
Keith-Was part of the Elyse Plan.
Whitney- Was part of the Elyse Plan.
Dawn- Was with Cochran all along, and is getting axed by him.

so I can see why people hate Cochran yes, I am saying his move was more personal and not "I'm a strategy genius!" thing.

I find Cochran's case of "I'm not going to let the stones decide my fate at the tribal council" lame. If Ozzy were to give him the idea to ensure that he does not flip and does not have to pick a stone, he will flip too. He just doesn't like the tribe and it was a PERSONAL move for sure. It didn't seem like a strategic move at all. It just makes him lose his votes. Maybe he sees it as a case to get to the final 3 because people would want to vote for him, but seriously, I think that's just naive thinking. Things don't happen this way in Survivor... you don't just want to advance further in the game. He needs to WIN VOTES from the jury. By going against his tribe, that's like at least 5 votes he threw away from the jury, okay maybe not Dawn's... but IMO, I think he's playing as bad as a game as Brandon. No wonder they are like good friends. They like to piss the jury off and not win. :lol:

If I'm in the game, I'll make sure they are in the F3 with me. I'll win with a landslide vote. :lol:

Okay I watched the episode anyway. I have a feeling we're going to see Dawn in the next allstars. Just a feeling.

Cochran was so rude to Dawn. Does he not think he is next? Good job, idiot. You managed to remove your whole team and you're next!

That was so boring, to have the entire Savaii wiped out. Save Cochran, that is. But since he's already flipped to Upolu, he's out of the picture. I really wished that Albert, Sophie and Cochran had carried their plan through. That'd flip the game up so much. I really enjoyed this season, but it's not getting predictable and boring again.

I do feel that Cochran will not be gone at 7th. In fact, I feel that he could actually make it to the end, but of course not win. Gosh, all I hope for now is that Upolu will do something to shake things up. Otherwise, Coach is winning.

Please, no...

I actually think that Sophie and Albert not flipping is an excellent choice. Of course as a Dawn supporter, I would have WISHED for them to do so, but strategically it's just not a smart move. You see, while you save Whitney and Dawn, which probably gives you the probability of 2 votes at tribal council, you screw over Edna who won't be voting for you. But the fact is, you screw people like Brandon and Coach, who... "deems LOYALTY" so much (Although I think they're just bullcrapping) and will probably find reasons/ways to get you out even BEFORE Whitney and Dawn if they did stay over Edna. Strategically, it makes ABSOLUTE no sense to go with Dawn and Whitney, since Albert and Sophie are definitely not at the bottom of the totem pole.

What would make more strategical sense would be for Edna, Rick and Cochran, who're definitely not running/playing/in danger of moving even further than F6, to work with Whitney and Dawn to make sure they make the FINAL 3. You see, with the power of 2 from old Savaii, the 3 can join forces and then vote out the other players who seemed to be "running the tribe" and has a shot of winning.

BUT, that probably won't happen because they are simply not playing the game. Which results to... us... viewers... watching... a...boring.... season. Yep.

And going with Whitney and Dawn, helping them to move a step further, by screwing Edna... but with NO intention to bring them further than the F6, doesn't necessarily win you their votes as well.

Look at how Sugar screwed her own game by simply going with whoever she wants to in Gabon. :lol:

The episode was sad ( Dawn  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( ) but I think Sophie/Albert not flipping was their best option. If they had made it to the Final 5 with Dawn/Whitney/Cochran, Dawn/Whitney/Cochran would just take out Albert at the Final 5 and Sophie at the Final 4. Still rooting for Cochran because he's the only person besides Sophie that isn't on Redemption who I'd like to win. Ideally, Dawn would come back, but I'm not gonna hold my breath about it.

Albert, Coach and Sophie made Cochran a Final 4 deal, which apparently was more than Cochran ever got on Savaii.  So in Cochran's eyes, he's got a Final 4 deal.  It might be fake (and probably is), but he's probably willing to take the chance that it's real.

Curious, but how was Cochran ever rude to Dawn???

Yea.. I never had the impression Cochran was rude to Dawn. :duno: Maybe he/she meant giving her false hope and lip service.

I totally agree, Ruth; the game has approached ho hum and boredom.  No bold moves, no risks, just knocking off one tribe one member at a time. So predictable, the only benefit of watching tonight was a nap!!

Ozzy is showing himself to be the true Survivor though, just as Rob did last season.  His abilities and instincts are right in line with being a winner.  I initially liked Coach but he has now worn thin.
