1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Looks like Cochran's advantage pretty much locked up Immunity for him.

I thought the same thing. I looked during the first voting, saw it was 8:52 and knew Malcolm was toast.

Very saddened that Erik and Sherri didn't punch their ticket to the final 5. Oh well. Malcolm should've just kept digging, or told Reynold and Eddie to look for it. Also, at camp, Andrea's not gonna stare at you all day. Sprint into the woods the second she looks elsewhere! But no biggie. I still have my two original favorites in, and they're looking good if the 6 start to turn on each other.

Same... and I don't know why he didn't wait to buy the advantage at the next Immunity Challenge.

If I were Erik and Sherri, I wouldn't flip too. If I flip, it's still 4 vs 4 the next week. And I wouldn't win with Malcolm either.. and I'll be seen as a backstabber and I won't win with the jury either.

Good for us watching at home, but bad for the person who flipped as a whole.

So... bye Malcolm! See you in the next Heroes VS Villians 2 or Allstars! <3 :<3

I really loved this episode. Andreagoddess and her showdown was something I will never forget! <33333333333333333 :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: But I really thought she was out. Glad that's not the case.

Dawn just became one of my favourite castaways of all-time, simply by using the word "arrogance" to describe the Three Amigos. I'm not the only one after all. :lol:

Can't believe the amount of screentime Erik and Brenda got. I think they were both seen more in this episode than the rest of the season combined. :o

And I'm really happy Malcolm is gone. Andrea's showdown worked. <3 :lol3:

I was just sad Andrea and Malcolm didn't suddenly decide to work together as they are such big threats... Andrea is going to regret it. :/

I would've liked a Corinne, Andrea, Malcolm power-group, but I don't think Andrea had any reason to flip at the time, being in the core of the alliance. That may change later on, but it wasn't a feasible option before.

I think it's the fact, that these Favourites are good players (only played twice all of them) and even if they think that Andrea is a huge threat, they didn't tell her at all. Andrea thinks she's tight with Dawn and Cochran.... BUT that's not the case at all.

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.

Most of your other comments make sense to varying extents, but I really don't agree with this part. He was clearly joking. He knows that nobody expected him to win. And he realises that it will quite possibly never happen again. He's just joking as though he's some sort of challenge god. He was laughing at himself more than anything else.

Did he take it too far? Maybe. I can understand that. But it's far from being cocky. Just because he said "I'm going to just win every challenge" doesn't make him cocky - you have to consider the context in which it was said. He was saying "I'm going to just win every challenge" while really hinting at "I don't know how this is happening and this will probably never happen again".

That's just the way I see it.

I really loved your first paragraph about how Malcolm could have gone looking for the idol! :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:
