I don't understand the Tom/Terry comparisons. When did Terry say or give any indication that he was trying to be Tom? What's with thinking that Tom is smarter than Terry? Tom may understand people better, but I'm sure Terry is more intelligent. Terry needs to keep the HII for the gang-up-on-someone challenge that we all know and love(?).
Every season we talk about how annoyingly stupid it is that the contestants seem to have made no effort to prepare themselves for the show (ie: learn survival skills). Terry and Bruce seem to be the only two that were prepared and should be (if only grudgingly by some) given credit for that.
Cirie finally did something to make her at least temporarily likable. She pointed out at TC that Aras' RC strategy worked well for HIM, although he tried to pretend it was supposed to be good for the all women team too.
The only big mistake I attribute to Terry is hanging onto Dan's, "Space Ghost" dead weight too long.
