    But I like them both, what does that make me?

    James' dumb move was during "Survivor: China" - his first and admittedly the best season he played.

    I found his dodging the question as to why such the prissy behavior this season rather interesting. Then again - that was the start of the Heroes' fall: Keeping him for three more miserable days instead of keeping Tom. As much as I like Sandra and respect Parvati (game play for sure and some of her strategy), had they made the right choice to keep Tom, the results of this season could've been quite different.

    Natalie may have been guilty of this... but Sandra? No way. She was working the game form the beginning, very keenly NOT stepping on people's toes. I'm thrilled she won... she's feisty as hell and fun to watch.

The mere fact that he thinks the rules of the game so that he can win is infuriating.

    There is and always will be a social aspect to the game. Russell has come up with a strategy that ignores that. It doesn't work. And watching him beat his stubborn head into a wall over and over isn't my idea of entertainment.
    Well, then I guess Russell is lucky that the majority of voting viewers don't hold your view, but instead like him and want to reward him.

    I think it's entertaining watching Russ lose. lol If he gets 100k for me being able to laugh at him getting 0 votes it's all good.

    I liked how Probst called Amanda out on defending James. I think both of them were lousy to be cast a 3rd time. I felt for Tom, and in the beginning Colby (until he got to be such a freaking dud). Tom would have been much better to keep around and I agree, definitely wouldn't have let JT pull the idol move and probably listened to Sandra.

    I don't like Parvati but the girl's got game. I don't remember her doing much of anything her first season, but am glad she got a game plan and stayed in the loop with everything. I'll give her this, her last two seasons she was an early target to leave, and made it to the end both times.

    Was Russell drunk at the reunion show? He was like a posturing little peacock. He sure was furious that Sandra won, when he was convinced she wouldn't get a single vote. Tee hee.

    Rupert as runner up for player of the game? Should have been Parvati, and she should have won it.

    Tyson's hair looked silly, and Erik the ice cream scooper's hair just looked stupid.

    Loved, loved, loved seeing Rob's gorgeous little Lucia in the audience. He seems so happy, it's great to see. And yes, Russell, he played to win the game even though he didn't. You didn't win either, if memory serves me correctly. At least Rob married a winner.

    Way to go, Sandra. Way to show that little troll that there are other ways to win this game. Twice. She's won twice. He's lost twice. There's some karma there. Just wish he didn't win the hundred grand, but I understand the entertainment appeal, so I get why he won.

    See, to me it's him playing the game 100%. It's all he cares about. It may be his downfall, but I respect him for playing like that.

    The thing I wonder about is what would have happened if Russell had time to see his first season and truly absorb what went wrong with his game play (primarily too much open betrayal and complete lack of self-awareness in my opinion). If he really is the great player he thinks he is, he would probably have won this time by adjusting a bit. If he really is pretty much an ass-hat like he comes across in the show, then frankly its amazing to me he makes it so far each season.

    As for Sandra winning, I can't complain about someone who has won the game twice now. That's impressive by any measure. I personally think Pav is more deserving, but I am biased toward stronger participants.

    I think worst move ever that wasn't on the list was Sean in season one using and discussing his alphabet voting strategy. It completely compromised that season, and frankly they are lucky Hatch and Hawk were so compelling for ratings or it all could have ended right there in Borneo.

    Well he did get the most votes... but likely not a majority.
