    I wonder if Jeff said that because of the comments Marcus made on the episode he was kicked off. He did seem especially pleased with himself that day when he said that he was responsible for convincing nine people to throw away the idol and no one in the history of Survivor had done that. And throwing away an immunity idol in and of itself is an arrogant move, even if the situation in which it was presented to them made it difficult for anyone to keep without putting a target on his/her back.

    I agree, Jeff's comments had to be based on the eppy Marcus left. But I take it as him playing the game, no more or less arrogant than most of the others.. I also don't see Corinne as ubernasty, maybe a little bratty. What is Jeff doing to us??

    Randy, now he was the arrogant one, but funny to watch self-implode..

    Yes, I think you nailed it. Jeff was shocked and disgusted they tossed that II. That is probably the reason for his comment.

    I didn't see anything else they could have done. It was useless to anyone who had it. Everyone knew and would have forced it out at the next TC.

    I don't think it was necessarily useless to Sugar. The HII she already has serves as kind of a buffer.

    Nor would it have been useless to Marcus who would have been saved for the merge, but the point is whoever grabbed it would be a target. And really they would have been a target for two reasons - (1) because people would want to smoke out the idol and (2) because they grabbed the idol from everyone else, which looks like kind of a selfish/jerk move, so it would hurt their social game.

    We need to remember that the Onion Alliance thought they had merged with the strongest numbers and had no need of the HII. It wasn't until after the ocean burial that they found out that they were splitting into 2 teams and Marcus was on a team where he should have been safe, but his arrogance and shortsightedness got him blindsided instead.

    Yes, I think we all remember that. What we were discussing was the awkwardness of the situation in which the HII was presented to them, making it impossible to get the idol without hurting one's social game.
    I don't think Marcus could said to be the most arrogant player in Survivor history for trusting Crystal when he didn't need to; that was just kind of stupid.

    I can see why people thought Marcus was arrogant, but the most arrogant player ever? No way.

    I agree. We have seen arrogant people over the seasons and Marcus was certainly not the worst. Same with Corinne - sure she is a b*tch but the worst??? haven't seen that yet. If she was as bad as Jeff has said you would have thought they would have voted her off already. You would think they would be showing us more of this side of her. Why edit someone as a b*tch if you edit them as a superb*tch?
