First of all, I loved the credits "Introducing Tom and Smokey".
The evil side in me really wanted Dave to buck the system and send Alex home, everyone else be damned. Every time Alex would say something about he wanted Beau home, they would show a clip of him saying the exact opposite (Keith and Dave). Plus, Alex has already said he wanted to be the only "original" remaining. The guy's only out for himself and will backstab anyone he can. So I was kinda pulling for Dave to send Alex home anyway. Actually, I probably would have sent Tom home and taken the easy way out. Nobody could have argued with that decision.
I still can't figure out why Keith and Dave joined forces with their mortal enemies Alex and Kristin. The only explanation I can come up with is that they confronted Alex off-camera about them cheating in casino night (and I was sick when Kristin was laughing about how she "just stole $1000 in chips. Oh, so it's OK to steal as long as you don't cheat. I'll remember that when turning to a life of crime), and Alex agreed to give them his money (and put himself at risk of elimination) in exchange for them not pressing the cheating issue (and not eliminating him). That's the only scenario that makes sense to me.
Tara... was she pissed at Keith or what? Charla got the death look. She better sleep with one eye open next week or she might end up with a knife in her back. Two girls + one guy = trouble in Paradise. I've never liked Tara, and last night reinforced that. First her classless "leftover" comment to Tom, then the evil look to Charla and Keith.
I can't say I'm really that sorry to see Beau gone. He's steadily gone downhill ever since the Alex/Amanda episode WAYYY back. He put his trust in the wrong people (the Inner Circle) and he eventually got burned by it. I did have to like his parting shot at everyone, though. Plus he got a kiss from hostess Amanda.
