The title sounds like it came from Stephen. A JT and Stephen final two is expected, but I just wish for things to get shaken up. Like maybe, Erinn makes the final two! Alright, I'll just continue to dream.

I wonder if JT and Stephen turning on each other is as serious as it sounds. I do like both of them and I think they deserve to be the final two, but that'll be so predictable. What'll be great is Taj and Erinn in the final two! Wow. But nah, probably won't happen. I can only hope that it's at least a guy-girl final two.

CBS Sports live coverage of the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open on Sunday, 5/17 could delay start times for 60 Minutes (7pm ET) and Survivor Finale & Live Reunion Show (8pm ET).

If so, you'll receive a message on Sunday with exact details of revised start times.

Well if JT wins immunity........maybe..........just maybe he tells Taj about Stephen's plan from way back to keep the HII. Now that would really be a blindside.

This doesn't make sense. Let me put it out in a more layman's term.

After the F4 backstabs Taj/JT and vote her/him out, then voting out Erinn at F3.. Stephen and JT/Taj turn on each other at the jury tribal council.

Does that makes sense? Tell me which two do you see turning on each other? JT and Taj? JT and Erinn? Erinn and Taj? Taj and Stephen? Stephen and Erinn??

I could only see the possibility of JT and Stephen or Stephen and Taj.. because they are the only people with a true friendship/alliance.. from what we've seen..

So the thing is.. if there needs to be a shocking vote in the final 4... to be shocking.. it has to be Erinn staying until the F3. I would say Stephen backstabs JT (decent blindside) and goes with Taj and Erinn to the F3.

Then there has to be a decently constructed lie, which Stephen then tell both Taj and Erinn that he will bring both to the F2 and makes promises to them, and then don't win the challenge purposely, leaving Taj to win or Erinn to win. The winner (most prob Taj) brings Stephen because she has been in an alliance with him since early game.

Then when they turn on each other, that's where JT laid everything out about being in an alliance and Taj is disgusted that Stephen is such a constant liar and everything and they start turning on one another. And then the jury votes..

Brendan - Taj (obvious)
Sierra - Taj (obvious)
Debbie - Unknown (could vote for Stephen for being the smart player or Taj for being a fellow female who outplayed the rest)
Coach - Stephen (if he's such a ***ist, his vote will go to a male)
JT - Taj (Blindsided by Stephen)
Erinn - Unknown (might vote for Stephen because of the lie, or might vote for Taj for being a fellow female who outplayed the rest)

I still believe that it is impossible that JT and Stephen are in the final 2 because that would have been so BORING and obvious who will win.. how would that be a top 5 seasons? I still say and pray, hope for a miracle of Taj and Stephen F2 and Taj will then obviously win!!!!

Post by: Jobby on May 16, 2009, 07:56:21 AM
I believe only Taj or JT stands a chance of winning. Jeff said we will like the winner and will be satisfied with the results. An Erinn or Stephen win will not bring this season into the top 5 seasons i believe. And a JT win would have been so boring and expected, thus i really think Taj wins. Or it may be a wilful wishful thinking.

Lol, I guess that Stephen says it. A Stephen and Taj final two would be awesome, a Taj win would be even more awesome. But I don't know, somehow I only see Stephen and JT turning on each other. JT will probably win against Stephen, still having a likeable person win. But then again, if JT and Stephen were indeed the final two, I don't see why they'll turn on each other since all is well. So... Hoping that Taj makes the final two and wins!

I've been trying to figure this out.  Do you guys think the "one shocking vote" is when Stephen voted Coach out, or is the F4 vote the shocking vote?  The way it is phrased, it makes me think that the F4 vote is shocking.  And if it is the F4 vote, then I would think a vote for anyone but Erinn would be shocking.

It was stated that there are 3 tribal councils, thus it is after the F4 TC, leads to a carefully constructed lie before the F3 TC and then the F2 turning onto each other at the final TC with the jury.

I noticed Thursday at Tribal that Taj & Stephen both write the same. (Taj's is shown at 8:31, Stephen's at 8:47)  That said, my guess is the plan is for JT/S/T to vote Erinn out.  Erinn probably thinks they are voting Taj out.  Erinn votes out Taj.  JT & Stephen vote out Erinn.  Taj votes out JT.  She must realize that in order to go to F2 she needs to split the boys.  She can "plant a seed of doubt" in JT's mind about Stephen (1st he voted out Coach, now he is going after JT) the "well constructed lie" is to tell JT that Stephen was the one that voted for him, just like he voted for Coach.  We have Taj saying in the preview that she will backstab to win.
Just a theory.

It's a good theory but Survivor doesn't work that way. They only have the 3 of them left then, they are bound to come together and talk about the vote.. then JT will question Spencer about voting for him.. which he will deny.. and i don't think Taj will blatanly lie in front of the 2 of them? Because that's just dumb and easy to see through. But it's a really good theory.

And an Erinn vote off at the F4 is not a shocking vote to us, thus Erinn stays to a good F3 IMO.

That's the way i speculated as well. Because all of them probably realized they are not going to win against JT.. but how JT didn't win the F4 immunity when it's a physical challenge.. i don't know? Perhaps Steve won..

PS: Sorry i mixed Steven up with Spencer. LOL!

Yep I wondered what you meant there  :lol: Yeah I think Steve could pull through at the Puzzle like last time! And he and Taj decide they cannot win against J.T! Then Steve wins immunity and stays loyal to Taj by taking her through and hopefully the votes will go:

Erinn: Taj
J.T: Steve
Coach: Steve (***ist)
Deb: Taj
Sierra: Taj
Tyson: Steve (***ist)
Brendan: Taj

4-3

By the by if Erinn won I don't think the fave winner thing would hold true. Possibly same with Steve but J.T or Taj could be faves. But a J.T win would be soooooo predictable

Well I hope

4th: J.T
3rd: Erinn
2nd: Steve
1st: TAJ!

This is my hope!! (But I should say I want Erinn to win, not to jinx Taj!)

I'm glad to see other Taj supporters besides myself!  Praying she is not another blindside going home first tonight.  I would think that the fact the F2 "turn on each other" that one of them is Stephen, and Erinn is NOT one of them.  Stephen is close with both Taj and JT.
Maybe the seed of doubt has to do with Taj, Stephen and the HII.  Maybe JT tells Taj that Stephen wasn't backing her as much as she was backing him?

Just found this interview...

5 Questions with Jeff Probst- Inside TV Blog

1. What can we expect from the finale?
There's a pretty decent betrayal in the finale. I think it will shock a lot of people, and then for others they'll say "Doesn't surprise me at all." I like the final four ... It's been a pretty remarkable journey for them because there were these two tribes, this Timbira tribe that had the numbers, and all they had to do was pick off the Jalapao people and they would be sitting really pretty. But 'Survivor' has this great element to it and that is there's only one winner, and so no matter how strong your alliance is, somebody's always on the bottom of that alliance ... The thing you can count on is somebody [realizing], "I don't like being on the bottom, so I'm going to the other side," and then you have your twists and you're back in the game.

2. Some fans say you've become more pointed in your questioning at tribal council. What do you think?
I think as the game evolved, and the show evolved, it just became a natural part of the discourse for me to let my opinion out. And I always approach tribal council as though I am the audience -- what does the audience want to know right now? But I don't ever feel like I influence the game too much ... In 18 seasons, I've never had a Survivor say, "You're singling me out, and it's not fair." Because tribal council will last 45 minutes or an hour, and everybody gets asked a lot of questions. It's just that all that we use on the show are those five questions that make it appear as though I know everything.

3. Where does this season rank in 'Survivor' history?
Coming into this season, I thought it was going to crack our top five, possibly ... I think it's definitely a top 10 season, but it's hard to know until it's over and you have your winner. But I think everybody's going to be very satisfied with the way this season ends, and hands down we have had one of the biggest characters in the history of our 18 seasons in Coach.

4. Do you really think he could have his own reality show, like you wrote in your EW.com blog?
I really do. I'm not kidding. I think you could set up a situation in which you followed Coach around in his daily life and create scenarios for him to be a part of. Think of all the things you wonder about: Does Coach have a girlfriend? Does he actually go on dates and talk like the Dragon Slayer to his girlfriend? Who are his friends? Where is his family? Do they think he's crazy? And what does Coach's house looks like? I mean, I have endless questions about a guy like this [laughs].

5. But would you have been happy if Coach won?
Oh, I [would've been] through the roof if Coach won. If a guy like Coach -- as outrageous as he is, with all the stories he told -- could somehow make it to the end and then convince the jury that he was more worthy than the person he was sitting next to, that would probably be the greatest win since Richard Hatch. [In last night's episode] Coach has one of the greatest scenes ever, and I've watched it several times and I just marvel at it. In fact, Jenna Fischer from 'The Office' wrote me the other day and said, "Coach's speeches are Dwight. That's exactly something Dwight on 'The Office' would say." It's just so beautiful. I mean, nobody writes like that.

I love Taj! I'll be happy if she or J. T. win. I don't like Erinn or Stephen much, although to make it to the final 4 is a huge achievement.

I sincerely doubt that Taj does win or even gets to the final 3 because she is well liked, and with J. T. and Stephen in alliance with each other, I'd think they would rather have Erinn with them for the final 3. I could see that as a betrayal of Taj, but not unexpected so perhaps I'm wrong.

I could see that happening also.  But who would they consider to be better at IC?  I think Erinn is if it is a puzzle, and she may be better athletically also.  I think a lot depends on how close each of those girls come to winning the last IC.  If the boys are smart, they will get rid of the girl that comes closest to winning.

Shes a principal, she has to give that stern look. Not sure she might be the most pissed though. I think they might just feel the wrath of Taj.

I think Stephen might just have taken Erinn.

I wonder if Erinn will tell the jury that Stephen contemplated taking her instead of JT... Taj is hurt but in the end, even if it meant not taking her to the final 3 might have been the best move for JT. He showed he could be loyal and he didn't have to choose between her and Stephen.

I think Stephen would have taken Erinn as well.
Title: Re: S18: finale 'I Trust You But I Trust Me More'
Post by: puddin on May 17, 2009, 08:54:20 PM
Well JT most likely gets Brendans vote but we already knew that.

JT more or less says that Steve floated under the radar.

Erinn says that all of Steves alliances are on the jury, lol

JT prob gets Erinns vote as well

Deb all drama like

JT admits that he had to lie to get where he is

Deb does not like Steves answer who would be sitting next to him if he won IC and he answers I don't know but she tells him thats not an answer and he says prob Erinn.

JT has good answers for Coach as well

Steve more or less says that JT took the weasel way out by not voting Coach out even though JT knew and admits that he knew Coach was going.

Sierra says that JT's talk about taking the strongest to the end then why is he sitting next the weakest, steve?

Sierra says that his downfall might be that he did not take the strongest person

Sierra does not ever address Steve, lol

oh Taj is crushed and feels betrayed awwwwwwwwwww


She says that JT had a hard time putting Coachs name down but no problem with her.

Taj says that Steve changed in the last 3 days

OHH steve says that JT was wanting to take her out for awhile! LOL

JT says its not true at all that steve made it sound like hes the one thats been protecting her.

now JT/S going back and forth about who wanted to take Taj out

Steve says that JT has been slandering him all night

jury is done

they have to think about the vote

Theres no WAY JT does not win this but we already knew that

Post by: bag on May 18, 2009, 06:34:17 AM
I actually thought Stephen had his jury questions in the bag up until Taj. His opening statement was a mess, but he recovered and definitely shifted the 'blindside blame' onto JT, for a while, until Taj came up. Then he just started blabbering (remember the numbers challenge that he won? He was talking exactly the same way), and after a while I had no idea what he was getting at.

The best part though? The Reunion. How awesome was that. "I slay the dragon!" Best part of the Reunion, though: Samoa. Hopefully, TPTB will have learned their lesson and stop sending people who default to one strategic move (namely, butt-kissing). Can't wait for that!

before the final TC was shown, i want stephen to win, but hearing his opening statement, the way he answers the jury's question, and kinda backstabbing jt, i am really disappointed...

it sounds like he is so desperate for jury votes,,,, well scrambling for the votes.

too bad, he didn't won the Final IC, then he would have taken Erinn, and Erinn has a bigger chance to win over him....

overall, this is a great season,

Title: Re: S18: finale 'I Trust You But I Trust Me More'
Post by: Jobby on May 19, 2009, 03:11:36 AM
Okay i'm watching the episode now..

And it seems that i was right that either Taj or JT would be blindsided, but i was wrong about it being a "shocking" one, expecting JT's vote out to be a more shocking one than Taj..

Thus Erinn made the final 3 and was out.. and it's down to Steven and JT, which both i didn't like because i think they're both liars. (Look at the final TC, their lies.. turning on each other..) *rolleyes*

And so.. before i see the votes, i believe JT will win and the votes will go like this -

Erinn - Steven (sure)
Taj - Steven (woman of my word.. man the same way..) ???
Coach - JT (sure)
Debbie - JT (sure)
Sierra - Steven (sure)
Tyson - Steven (unsure)
Brendan - JT (unsure)

I think it will be a close one. There's 2 sure votes for JT and 3 for Steven as well.. we'll see where the last 2 votes go to.

JT received every single vote? WOW.

That is indeed shocking.

Anyway, i don't belong to the people who believe this is a good season and is one of those "top 5" seasons ever. Because it's so predictable and boring in some ways.. Gabon was wayyyy much better.. with classic scenes like the Crystal outburst and the bitchy Randy and Corrine as well as Sugar who turned the whole game. Every character in Gabon was colourful.. (jury).. unlike this season.

Boo to Jeff for believing and highly promoting this season as one of the best, because i clearly did not enjoy it.

It seemed like a better strategy for JT to take Stephen to the finals, because everyone would think that it was a very honest and bold move.  If he took Erinn, than he most likely wouldn't have gotten all of the votes.  (Taj)

But I think that would catering very specifically to Taj only. Coach clearly didn't like Erinn, neither did Tyson. I don't believe that Erinn would've had a very good jury performance, either, and that JT would have been able to succeed more, unless Erinn did a surprisingly well jury performance. If that were the case, here's what I think it would go down like.

BRENDAN: JT
TYSON: JT
SIERRA: Erinn
DEBBIE: JT
COACH: JT
TAJ: Erinn
STEPHEN: JT (obviously)

I think Erinn would've had a better jury performance than Stephen did, but I think that while Sierra and Taj would've voted Erinn, Debbie and Brendan would still probably have voted for J.T. as well as obviously Coach, Stephen and Tyson.

Yeah, I think the tribal loyalties would've still held, namely, the tribal hatred towards Erinn. (If it wasn't her, Candace would've been in the final 3 :P)

I certainly don't think this is one of the best seasons ever. The challenges were cool, the cast was pretty interesting, but the outcome was way too predictable. I guess the reason this season's great in Jeff's opinion is J.T.'s likeability. I'm surprised that J.T. got all the votes. Wow, even Erinn would've gotten at least a vote, from Taj. I don't consider J.T. one of the smartest and most interesting players, but what draws people to him is his sincerity, which I really felt during the final TC. I thought that Stephen was trying too hard to cover up, while J.T. was just very honest. I'm satisfied with the outcome, but it's really boring.

He made it different, but not better for Jeff to rank it among the top 5 seasons. *rolleyes* This season immediately falls behind more deserving winner such as Yul, Earl, Danni and Bob. Even Micronesia was fun because of the many funny moments (blindsides, Erik giving immunity necklace away lol)

Yes, but he didn't bring a good different. XD If anything, Taj stole the season.

I agree. Taj was underrated. She is in the league of Cirie and made the season so much more fun to watch.

I wholeheartedly agree with the different but not better comment. Coach was entertaining as a character, but by the end of his run I was sooooo tired of the extraordinary amounts of air time the editors were giving him.

The biggest problem I had with this season was the lack of strategy. Both tribes fell into the usual "vote the weakest or most annoying first" train of thought and no interesting alliances of any note were formed early on besides the ill-fated Exile alliance. So that leaves us with a first half of the season that played out quite ordinarily, especially without the benefit of a tribal switch or some other sort of twist. Once the merge came things got really good, really fast. If not for Joe's injury leading to an anti-climactic end, the first post-merge episode would have been amazing. Sadly, things didn't remain as great as the Stephen/JT/Taj trio rolled through the old Timbira tribe like a set of bowling pins. No one made any big moves after Tyson's blindside and everyone stuck to their guns, including Debbie and Coach, who's strategic guns were shooting blanks all season. I guess my point is that Tocantins sorely lacked all of the alliance-shifting and unexpectedness that the previous two seasons (I've only gotten back into Survivor in the past year) had. Micronesia had people playing the game from the moment they stepped on the island, and things never let up from that point on. Gabon started off typically, but pre-merge you had the tribal shake-up, the Ace/Sugar/Ken dynamic that followed, and then the post-merge game with Ken and Crystal coming into power while Sugar repeatedly made moves that shot everyone's plans all to hell. Tocantins....was considerably vanilla in comparison.

Sugar has to be back for Allstars. She alone made Gabon a blast and the whole season so much more interesting. From finding the idol, to sugar shack, to blindsiding Ace, to playing with Randy, to voting Crystal out, followed by Ken, then not voting Bob out, and a bitch fight with Corrine AND then letting Bob win. Like OMG, we wonder how she even did it and made it all the way to the end. lol.
