After watching the tape today, I am very, very, very disappointed with Larissa's choice. Not that I miss Todd, not one little bit. But she stated to Tony after they reached shore, that whoever was responsible was gone. And yet Beaver-Boy lives on another day. This jackass ends up apologizing for his sophomoric behavior every single episode. Which means he doesn't regret doing stuff, he just regrets getting caught. Grab a clue Larissa. If it had been me, there wouldn't even have been a speech at the elimination ceremony. Just a finger pointed at each Michael: you and you, outta here! OK, rant over.
I loved that Thomas beat a hunk, and suggested the hunks probably exchanged phone numbers with Michael Bergin. I loved Fredo's description of the second contest: we had to rescue a dummy, and it wasn't one of those guys. I loved that Brian W. would rather have had Larissa lie next to him on the beach than Brooke.
I hated Mike Klein's comment "I feel like I'm living with a bunch of females." I hated Mike C.'s facial expression after the eviction. Both surprised and pleased with himself, kind of like: Wow, I really dodged a bullet there!
I wouldn't read too much into Tony saving the painting. This is a girl who can jump off a cliff. And when he left the boat he was swimming backwards in order to keep an eye on her.
The date with Gil looked promising, but his preview from next week's 'Mama' encounter doesn't.
Maybe next week they can detonate Michael Cardamone.
