Changed my picks back Coby as the biggest jury question at TC and Caryn to vote for Tom .
Read TDT FINAL FOUR IMMUNITY CHALLENGE/ "Tower of Domination" (Firestarting? Ziplines?) - Tom wins, Jenn booted
Wezzie posts a spoiler at Sucks: "The Final Four IC is said to involve firestarting." Wezzie later posted that the December 7th challenge was referred to as "Tower of Domination," which should be the F4 IC. The zipline challenge shown in the web/TV promo is probably this one.
Who wins? Vidcaps show the final four at tribal council, and Tom has the necklace on again. FINAL THREE IMMUNITY CHALLENGE/ Endurance - Tom wins, Ian departs
Wezzie posts another spoiler at Sucks: "The Final Three IC involves balance and endurance. One contestant lasted 8 hours. Another lasted 11 hours. The remaining contestant won immunity, of course." Later update: "You know... I'm going to take back that comment about 'standing'. I don't know if they're standing or not. All I heard was that their feet hurt. I imagined 'standing', but that isn't necessarily so."
The winner would, of course, be Tom. BOOTS/ F4-Jenn; F3-Ian; Tom beats Katie in jury vote
Final four boot: Jenn, thanks to Mersaydeez (the only remaining unassigned spot in Mer's boot order). Also fits the Butch/Darrah model of the invisible F4 boot. Since she can't penetrate the Tom-Ian-Katie trio, the only thing that could save her would be immunity, and she doesn't get it.
Final three boot: Ian. Tom takes Katie to the Final Two. Mersaydeez spoiled both people, Wezzie spoiled the F3 IC winner (above).
Jury vote predictions: Despite dire predictions of Tribal Council fireworks from Coby and Stephenie
, the end result should still be a win for Tom. This will be one of the oldest juries in Survivor history, and older jurors tend to favor work ethic and gamesmanship over other factors (i.e. friendship, as in Amazon). Both Tom and Katie are personable and have established friendships with the jury, so there are no major negatives there. Where there is personal friction (Coby), both have annoyed. See the Survivometer for our predicted jury votes. Caryn is bitter towards Katie ~Caryn's Early Show interview
"I knew I was on the chopping block," she says. "I knew that Katie could not be trusted
to keep her alliance with the women, that she was going to keep Ian on. She didn't have the guts to really send him packing, and I was going home and since I was going home, I wanted to lay the cards out."
