I don't know why Malcolm didn't slip off to look for the idol while the majority of that group was reading their letters from home. I know it's all in the edit, but it would make sense that they were all so excited to read their letters that the only people that might have noticed he slipped away were Sherri and Dawn. Either that or (at the risk of sounding like Philip) he could have taken a page from the Boston Rob playbook and acted like he was going off to take care of some personal business, which no one in their right mind would want to hover over you and watch. In any event, if he really thought he was in the right place he should have kept digging. So what if Andrea saw him find it. He might have been better off if he did and everyone knew.
After watching last night's episode, I still don't think he was being arrogant at the previous tribal. It seemed like the other two amigos might have been a little cocky, but I didn't get that from Malcolm. Again it's all in the edit, but that's my take on it.
It's funny, every season of the Amazing Race I have a favorite team or two. In all the seasons of Survivor I've seen, there have only been one or two people that I wanted to see win. This season is no different, there are plenty of people I don't want to see win but I'm not rooting for anyone.
Sherri - I just don't get how she thinks she's a mastermind of anything. Maybe it's because of the edit, but would they really give her such a bland edit if she was doing anything. It's like when people complain about how bad the edit makes them look on (insert reality show). They can't show it if you didn't do it. Well, if you're not doing anything they can't show you doing something.
Cochran - comes off as cocky this season IMO. If anyone else acted the way he did after winning immunity people would say "what a jerk." I know he seems like such an unlikely person to win anything that people want to give him a pass, but if it's arrogant, cocky and annoying when one person does it, it's arrogant, cocky and annoying when anyone does it.
Dawn - really just rubs me the wrong way this season. I hate to say it because it seems mean considering the fact that she really seems to be becoming unglued, but even cutting her some slack I just don't care for her.
Brenda - seems likable enough. I suppose if I had to pick one, she's the one I'd like to see win.
Andrea - probably a close second to Brenda. I guess I wouldn't mind if either of them went to the end.
Eddie/Reynold - Eh, I can't even remember which one is which without seeing their name next to them. I think that's the problem with mixing old players and new players in a season. Unless they're outstanding or annoying, the newbies don't have much of a chance of being memorable.
