Anyone think Ben and the others got a talking to prior to the challenge? He didn't seem as gung ho going after people in the water.

Loved how Jaison shut up evil Russell when it came time for evil Russell to defend Ben's ineffectiveness in challenges.

The rare times we see Galu, they bring some light-hearted fun that this season desperately needs. I think I would enjoy it a lot more if we didn't get 37 confessionals from Russell about how everybody else is an idiot and he's in charge every episode.

I'm just glad that evil little troll Russell didn't get his way this time....Ben was asking for it and deservedly so. Glad he's gone.

Jaison or Ben? I know that was not the two they were voting out but that is really came down to at the end. If Ben stayed Jaison was done and they need him more then they need Ben. I think we will see Russel this coming week shaking hands with Jaison and letting him know that he was glad they picked Ben to go. He a crafty dude.

WTF??? You pick pillows over a tarp and other supplies. Might be one of the worst things I have seen on this show.

I thought the same thing. I thought the tarp could have been marketted as comfort "look, now when it rains, we stay dry! ultimate comfort"
DUMB. The moment they get wet, the entire thing is toast. The pots were to me an equally important item.. the ability to boil up water? Priceless. My god, I just can't think of anything.. If comfort had included something like the candels were citronella or bug repellent. but instead you've just got nightlights that attract bugs. I have NO idea how to go with that...

The fact that they immediately edited in comments from him backpedaling on the choice makes me think this will definitely come into play for Russell down-the-road.

I can understand his decision. He was trying to be fair to
the women who would have given him a lot of shit if he
didn't pick comfort.

Women and guys think differently. The fact the women
are doing Yoga rather than collecting firewood is the
perfect example, me thinks.

Very true. The second he picked the "comfort" over "function" I told my (16yo) daughter the women on his tribe will be happy, and all the men will be pissed. Cut to the reaction shot and that's exactly what happened. However, as much as we might love our fluffy pillows, in a game like this neither of us would have picked the "comfort." We'd both have gone for the tarp & pots/pans. We figure we'll be far more comfortable if we're fed & dry than starving and wet w/a soggy pillow!

Was it only women doing yoga? I thought I remember seeing at least one guy there, but don't remember for sure and have already deleted it from the DVR. In any case, nothing wrong with yoga--as long as the work is already done.

Nah. There was one guy doing yoga (in black briefs).

Can't tell ya who he was, though, because we haven't spent enough time yet with the members of that particular tribe.

I think both Brett and Dave were doing yoga.

Shambo (who I'm not very fond of) definitely overreacted to that--her comments were the only indication that Galu is doing anything short of thriving (well, as much as you can on Survivor).

I think it's funny to hear Black Russell make threats in his high-pitched voice, plus Black Russell voted to boot Yaz as well.

Monica has really good facial features, and a nice, natural bikini bod.

Monica has a very beautiful body.

So happy that Yazmin was the first to go home from the
Galu tribe. Intellect level on the show should start inching
forward from this point forward.

I am kind of thinking that the person who is going to walk
away as the the Survivor is Erik. Guy has kept his cool,
is well liked, and finding the hidden idol isn't hurting his
chances either.

Speaking of which...is it getting that obvious these days
where they hide the idol? Two contestants this year
have found them both on their own --- although Erik did
have a clue.

Completely. The hiding places have obviously become too predictable and the simple fact that HIIs exist and that clues are being handed out has become way too predictable.

The producers are going to have to give this some careful thought and try to keep things "fresh" without making them "ridiculous" as they seem to have done with some of the challenges.

I remember the year that Yul found it. He wasn't the first one to try, people had spent hours and hours on exile island digging holes and had not found it. He went out there, read the clues, used some simple math, and found it right away. I'd prefer they go back to actually having to use something other than "find the spookey ole tree and look under it"

Compared to earlier seasons with the HII, it appears the producers are just giving it away. There was a time when you wouldn't be able to find it without three or four clues -- it was in Gabon when Sugar (!) found it with 2 clues that it was apparent they wanted to introduce the HII as early in the game as possible, and that trend has continued. I think the possibility of someone finding it without clues was in the back of their mind when they hid them.
