    I checked that out too, Lil_Cutie . As for the question, I think these teams looked very even pre-show. Morgan may have even had more strength and Drake was the team with all the negative buzz about Christa and Jon. But you can't predict the chemistry, and Drake seems like a "family". It's similar to why I rooted for the older teams in Africa and Thailand. They may have not been as fast or strong, but they were unified and that's what mattered.

    I agree with whoever said (can't remember) that they would be evenly split if Morgan would get their stuff together. They are a strong team, both immunity challenges showed that. They just need to figure out how to work as a team. Not that I want that to happen, I am rooting for Drake not Morgan.

    The only inequality at the start was Drake having Sandra, a Spanish speaker. I would have preferred each tribe having one Spanish-speaking member, or none at all.

    In everything else, the two tribes were pretty equal.

    I would say the weakest tribes ever in Survivor are (with pretty colors):

    Samburu (Africa)
    Maraamu (Marquesas)
    Sook Jai (Thailand)

    and now...

    Morgan (Pearl Islands)

    I wouldnt say samburu or sook jai were weak... it was just because the people working together didn't cooperate. Sook jai and Samburu won equal number of challenges...

    The same could be said of Morgan. They aren't a weak team, they just aren't cooperating very well.

    That's what I thought, too when I read the bios. Morgan seemed like the better 'physical fit' team. Nicole, Darrah, and Tijuana looked like they were stronger physically than the women of Drake, plus they had Lil the Scout Master.

    These two teams are more than even, imo. Morgan still has a chance to get back on the winning track if they start to organize themselves better and the leaders start stepping it up a notch.


    Oh, and it would be nice if a poster is given credit when their post is used to create a new thread, and especially since it was copied verbatim.

    On paper I think Morgan looks like the stronger tribe. It is just the way that they are acting under this situation that is just tearing them up. Before the show who would have thought Osten would be scared of everything and afriad of getting sick. Everyone esle is in the same situation and they aren't complaining as much.

    And I hope that Morgan can't get their act together because Drake deserves it win.
