HA! That was so great! Tyson definitely deserved that. An asshole even in his parting words.
I’m really worried that Coach will work his manipulative magic on Sierra next week. He uses her low self esteem to make her seek his approval. I’ve always hated that kind of “coaching.” Breaking someone down and then building them back up really means: destroy their sense of self worth so that they will be emotionally dependent on you.
The only downside to sending Coach home next week is that it would be so much more fun if he was totally blindsided.
Most satisfying Tribal Council ever. The shots of Sierra’s face as the results dawned on her intercut with the shots of Coach and Tyson feeling victory slip away were awesome television. “Survivor” at its best.
And Probst’s digs at Coach and his ‘life experiences’, just icing on the cake.
That really was awesome. I can’t wait for Coach to get all huffy with JT about giving his word as a “Warrior”. Eat it, Coach.
And, Jesus, some of these people are just hateful, horrible people. I thought Tyson would start searching for a puppy to kick after his talk with Sierra.
I agee – I don’t recall her comment, but it seemed like she voted for Tyson because he was being a dick to her in TC, and she thought her vote was inconsequential, so what the hell, she voted for him. It would have been delicious if JT had not voted for Coach, and Sierra’s impulse-vote for Tyson had been put Tyson over the top. Well, probably not – it would have been a tie, and Sierra and Tyson would compete to make fire, and Tyson would have whooped her, then beaten her senseless with a puppy. So this result was probably okay. EDIT: wait, it was 5/8 for Tyson, so if Sierra’s vote put them over the top and it was impulse… well hell, I don’t believe that now, the other players wouldn’t have risked that.
It was awesome when Jeff started after Coach about his “life experiences,” obviously tweaking him as a liar.
I love to hate Coach. He’s the biggest, most self-righteous asshole that’s ever been on Survivor. Coach, I hope you’re reading this.
I really wanted to see him voted out early on, but now I’m so happy that he’s still in. Twice now, two times in a row, I’ve had the gleeful joy of seeing Coach-butthole lose out on a reward challenge that you could see he was just salivating over. First he doesn’t get to go rafting, now he doesn’t get to see a martial arts exhibition. Take that, Coach-doofus, and that!
And then the icing on the cake, a blindside. Not on Coach himself, but perhaps better, on his little head-up-his-ass “warrior” alliance. I am going to so enjoy watching Coach-brainless get all huffy next week. Take that, ya moron. Maybe it’s not a thousand cuts, but three is a good start.
They didn’t need Sierra’s vote. If she voted for someone else, it still would have been four for Tyson, three for Sierra, and one for someone else. J.T. said something about not telling Sierra. It generally seems that Sierra is getting the “Sugar” edit, because it seems like no one likes her, for whatever reason.
What really annoyed me about Coach/Tyson this episode was the fact that they kept saying that they were getting rid of Sierra because she voted for Coach. Except they had put this plan into motion three episodes ago and had three people vote for Sierra just in case Brendan used the Idol. All that complaining about Sierra not owning up to her decision and they wouldn’t own up to theirs.
Gah, my bad. I still think Tyson would have beaten her up with a puppy, if need be.
Yeah, I was somewhat surprised by JT’s “she’s a lying bitch” comment, I’m not sure where his animosity came from. And, yeah, it seems everybody hates Sierra, but not enough to take her to the end to be a beanbag for the jury. Maybe she should kick a puppy or something.
