BEST. EPISODE. EVER. Usually the big moment comes when it is desperation time. FINALLY, a pre-emptive strike. AND THE NICE GUYS WIN! This REALLY means there is a good chance Tom or Ian will win. I am not sure that the women can beat either at ANY challenge the producers throw at them.
And so, the less anticipated, highly derivative RICH RANKINGS! (K or U for Tribe and Last Week’s Ranking in Parentheses).
FORGOT TO FILE A 1040- I guess you couldn’t outwit everyone!
Wanda,Jonathan,Jolanda, Ashlee,Jeff, Kim,Angie,(sniff) Willard, James, Ibrehem,Bobby Jon,Coby,Scope Mouthwash,Janu, Step (rawks)- Over heard at loser lodge, “Seriously James. Now that we are eliminated, you don’t have to wear the skirt that shows us your balls! And for the love a pete, take a shower!”
Gregg- (K/Rat)- From Rat to second rate, just like that. You showed your hand a little too much in the RC. You should have brought Tom on the cruise instead of Katie. You were a good player. This season was better because you were in the game. You just got outsmarted by better players.
EATING BEEF JERKY- You’re still playing, but you’re praying for a tribe scramble!
Jennifer- (K/Rat)- Sorry. Instead of a Rob and Amber style million dollar wedding, you will have to settle for a spot on a new reality series I am producing: White Trash Wedding Planner. It’s like Tristan and Ryan’s special, but you only get $87.42 for the whole affair. Brought to you by the fine people at “EVERYTHING’S A DOLLAR”… and Pringles.
WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT A MERGE?- Middle of the pack players, the lotta ya!
This started out as holding spot if a player’s status was unknown or in flux. We’re well past all that. At this point, either you are beef jerky or prime rib. No time for middle ground anymore.
HEY! LOOK AT HIS MOHAWK-You might make the merge, but you’re grimacing from the jury row!
Katie- (K/Mohawk)- Still the most likely person to sit second chair, but also the LEAST likely to take home the million dollars. And the meeting with Ian? Honey, that’s what they call a shakedown. You got SERVED! And don’t give me the shocked and hurt crap. You were plotting against them all the way! (but if it works for you, I’ll give you the courtesy bump up!) Shady Katie, indeed.
LOOKING FOR A BIG TOM TO ENGLISH DICTIONARY- Big Tom has spent more combined days on the show than anyone. But he didn’t quite grab the brass ring.
Caryn- (K/Big Tom)- Does she have the stones to go it alone and dump Tom? From the way Katie was attacking her in the previews, (while trying to convert her), I’d guess no. Bad move, too. The way I look at it, the only chance ANY of the females have is if the other person in the final TC is another of the females. But, I think Caryn will follow Tom off the cliff.
[sub](But, hey. Her acting WAS incredible!)[/sub]
ARE YOU A RAT OR A SNAKE?- Reserved for a MAXIMUM of two players. You have to be in the driver’s seat for this spot.
Ian-(K/Jerky),Tom-(K/Merge)- I know Tom and Ian can’t both be in the final two. They’ve all but admitted it. But for this week, I want to have them both here because I am about 90% certain one of them will win the million and the other will be genuinely proud of him. And I wanted to lump them in together. This is the best teamwork I have ever seen on Survivor. They sensed danger, pulled in the outsider, and put the screws to the most devious player, so she’d come along. All to take a pretty good player by surprise. This is beautiful play at its best. And because of these two, I love this show more than ever.
Final Four Prediction- Ian, Katie, Tom, Caryn
Winner- Tom over Katie (5-2)
The Jury Tracker:
Coby- (Favors: Katie, Dislikes: Tom)

Steph- (Favors: Ian, Dislikes: Possibly Caryn)
Gregg- (Favors: Jenn, but I don’t see him holding a grudge against anyone)
