    Okay, she won Pearl Islands, now this?  I gotta hand it to her: like she said, she didn't hide behind an immunity necklace, she never won a challenge. She did it all by herself. I'm glad she won.

    As for Russell...he plays a good game. He's probablly the best player they've ever had. But his attitude toward others hurt him.  The winner is supposed to be voted on for being the most deserving. I didn't feel he was.

    I was surprised to see Jerri Manthey go so far, but happy to see her change in oulook.

    That's my take, for what it's worth. It's a psychological game anyway.

      Russell is definitely the best villain ever! lol I did root for him, but his fault is his people skills. And even at the reunion he refuses to see his own faults.

      What I sense from Russel(especially after tonight's show) is he is not just this person in the game but in real life. And that...is a sad situation for people around him. It was on the internet just last week about him being arrested for assault at a bar I think it was.

      I am also glad Sandra won, now!

        I'm not surprised at this. Well, he didn't look happy at either reunion show. Especially this one.

        Whatever, he IS the shrewdest player they've had. He just didn't have anyone who liked him. That's a bummer.

    I believe she won not so much because people voted for her, but because people voted against the other two who clearly outplayed them.

    There is no logic to emotion.  The burned people enacted their revenge by taking it out on the better players.

    I really don't like the jury rewarding the full award.  I agree with Russel that America should have a say as they invest in watching it.  And they should also implement a point system for those who win challenges.

    To just slide by on luck and staying off the radar isn't a strategy... it's just something that happens.  Not really a competition afterall.  The best players don't always win.

      You're right about this, true. But the game was originally designed to allow the competitors decide who stays & who goes. So if they want to keep somebody they like, then they can. I can think of several past winners that weren't well liked...like ole Richard Hatch!  Think about Jenna Morasca from Amazon.  She was not likable, but won for what?  She had close ties with several, but even those who hated her voted for her to win! Go figure.  Then there is good ole J.T., country boy. Won for being a good ole boy. Right?

      So any way you look at it, it's all about a bunch of social psychology thrown in a difficult situation to see where the drama may splatter.  Like watching lab rats in an experiment. Fascinating, human behavior!!
