Two Days late & Still a Million $$ Short: Episode 11 #Survivor

This week, though it was a double episode, I've just got one question - WHY didn't anybody talk about voting out Jaclyn? As soon as Jon won immunity, it was like Jac became invisible. If Natalie was willing to show her hand by voting Alec, why didn't she take it a step further and actually accomplish something by voting Jac, thus weakining her prime target?

As I typed that, I had a thought about a possible reason. Nat knows Jon has a hidden idol...right? Is it possible she thought he might be spooked enough from tribal last week to give it to Jac? She wouldn't have had enough support to split the vote between Jac & Kieth or Jac & Alec, so maybe she didn't want to take that chance??

I give a salute to Reed for playing hard till the bitter end. And dammit, I'm back on the Keith train. He does't have any idea how to do subtle, but he does his best to get into peoples' heads, and he's kicking bum at the challenges against all those young 'uns. If he makes it to the final tribal, I'd give him my vote over anybody else still in the game.

I thought the same thing about Jaclyn! Voting her out would have been a huge power move for Nat. And I'm with you on Keith. :)

YES! I thought the same thing! Vote Jaclyn out! Couldn't she have gotten Baylor, Keith, and Alec on board with that?

I'm not a Baylor fan, but I actually liked her better after she softened toward Alec and was willing to vote for Jon behind her mom's back; she's smart enough to know that woman's follies with men. Which is why I was like, "Jeff, do you hear yourself?" at the challenge when he asked Baylor what it was like to see her mom be the more vulnerable of the two when it's supposed to be the opposite. Uh, it sounds like she's seen that her entire life, making Jeff's emotional rhetoric a bit of a slap in the face. Not that I wouldn't like to slap Missy myself...

I actually liked Jon and Jaclyn better when they were fighting, but now I'm ready for them to go again. My poor Reed. My picks keep dropping like flies, so I'm finding myself pulling for Keith now, too.

It is strange that no one thinks of her as someone to vote off.

I'm not sure who I'm rooting for anymore. Maybe Natalie. I think starving makes one intelligent bits wonky. Every season seems to prove it.

Looking forward to the mayhem tonight. :D

Heh. I love reading these, because I have no idea what you're talking about, and I can just make up all sorts of weird stories to match your review. Yes, I can totally entertain myself ;)

As a reformed Survivor addict, I thoroughly enjoyed this post. I was tempted a couple of seasons ago to jump back into the game but got pulled in another direction. Not sure if that was good or bad as it is a fun show!

I think I watched a couple of Survivors in the early years--I did try to watch the one with Blair from Facts of Life but it just isn't my thing. Too much "roughing it!" I did watch a great Hallmark movie Blair from Facts of Life just did, so it looks like Survivor got her work. (Or maybe DIVORCE made her have to start working again!)

Now if you cover Big Brother next summer, I'm your woman. I'm the world's biggest Big Brother fan, I think! I've watched every episode--most seasons I've watched all the way through three times. (They're on YouTube--as are all the Survivor seasons, at least last time I checked...)
