I've discovered there's a sound type button on my clicker that can get rid of that surround sound effect with the music, makes the speech clearer....or there's always closed captioning!
Re Francie being a threat...I think Andrea was aligning with Phillip and she was a threat to him. Andrea was also seen as a threat as she was seen talking to everyone. But basically I think that "you are being voted out because you are a threat" is, at this point, mostly a sop to the ego of the departed person. Not as if she were Malcolm at the F4 from last season.
So Brandon, Brenda and Erik are now the "out group". Poor Erik. Never guesses right. At least Malcolm did. And yes, if his pants were so easily pulled off, by an enemy or the weight of the water, at this point what will happen a few weeks in?
I urge viewers to hang in a bit...rumor has it there is some exciting drama coming up... and until then you can enjoy watching Malcolm if you missed his season, or one of the many blondes this season if your taste runs that way.
