    I agree that there is a pirate-y thing happening, but I was thinking more along the classic Errol Flynn (he played a pirate once right?) than Johnny Depp. NO one comes near Captain Jack!


    Flynn played a pirate more than once. And Rob Mariano looks nothing like Flynn did.

    Love him. Interesting to hear how he's adapted his game play. Kelli was funny, so true "that's why your are going home"...haha

    I can't stand Captain Jack Sparrow ... Rob wins. (my opinion, of course. )

    Yeah, looked it up. Rob doesn't so much, not anymore than Johnny Depp anyhow.

    Yeah, the coloring and the voice is completely different, and somehow, I don't think Rob could carry off the period costuming the way Flynn did.

    Rob finally won, but it was an ugly win. I've heard in college football the phrase "a W is a W". If Rob were a football team, he just won against the saddest, sorriest, most ill equipped opposition possible. I'm very fond of Rob, and have seen everything he's done, because I'll watch anything he does. But he completely lucked out this time around, and it took away from the pleasure of seeing him finally win, for me anyway.

    Can't stand him. Glad he has his own show that I can surf right past. I hope it keeps him way too busy to even think about going back on Survivor or The Amazing Race.

    Great job Rob. Best of luck to you and yours in the future.
    I have to agree! I just caught the Jimmy Fallon episode from a few weeks ago w/the final three on it. Rob mentioned that he was leaving the studio that evening and directly going to start shooting his new show. Sounds like he's welcoming the shift from contestant to hosting a show.

    Howie Mandel also sat in on their "Tribal Council" set, and was typically funny. He asked Rob what he'd be doing w/the money and Rob said his wife would be getting all of it - Howie assumed that meant she left him and is getting all his money b/c of a divorce or something! Rob said NO, he's happily married, but his wife would be spending the money - and that he's just happy to have the title.

    He told Jimmy he loved the manipulations of the game, and said it's kind of like what Jimmy does every evening: sometimes you don't particularly like someone on the show, but you have to play the game. Howie got indignant - looked like, Hey! and asked if he was about to get voted off the island! He admitted he'd never be able to make it onto the island, and that all that filth out there would bother him - that maybe he was sitting too close to Rob even.
