I was sad Kourtney had to leave like that. I was gonna root for her!
I was forcing myself to not have positively biased views on Christina because that's what I did for Edna last season, but she really is fierce and stands to defend herself the moment she feels something would be used as a reason to vote her out. Imo, she defended herself VERY well and I feel she completely owned Alicia, who I'm neutral with (I love that she's playing the game hard, reminds me of Tracy from Micronesia, only with more control). I also feel Kim and Sabrina will be strategic and strong players, especially Kim.
I dislike Michael, right from the moment he took the axe. I understand it's legal and is a good advantage, but I wouldn't do that. It'd definitely bite me back if I did. At least he's kinda smart enough to not say he did it (correct me if I'm wrong). I guess he just rubbed me the wrong way. I also feel Colton misrepresented himself (or maybe the edit). It looks like if any drama were to start in Manono, it's from him, which of course would be exciting. I don't know what to feel about Matt, it looks like he's just got a negative edit. The only man I feel from the premiere that would play the game to win in an effective way is Troyzan. I hope I'm not wrong.
Overall, the women imo have the better edit. I found myself rooting for the women more than the men. It definitely was interesting seeing the dynamics of the two tribes play out. It definitely looks similar to how the dynamics of *** play out in the real world. That's just from my observation.
I am rooting for: Christina, Leif, Matt, Kim, Sabrina.
