I think some people may see her as trying to be another Sandra Diaz-Twine, but the difference is Sandra didn't fool herself into thinking she was invincible and wasn't always flat out ugly to her tribe either time she was on. She helped work with people in the tribe, didn't declare anything other than her vote was up for grabs and yes told it like it was but none of the superiority (she got as good as she gave).
I wonder if she'll take over Hantz' reign as most vile contestant (well post his first season where IMHO he was indeed robbed of the win), ever. I mean, I think this will top Sue Hawk's snake/rats speech and Hantz' vile remarks to Brandon Hantz saying he was a loser and such at the reunion.Quote:
I have read the exit interview of the eliminated players and I have yet to hear anyone say anything nice about her...even those so called members of her alliance...Pete and Artis. Some have been more diplomatic than others, but none have praised her in any way. I will be curious to see how the audience reacts to her at the after...I have a feeling it will not be pretty.
Though I think she won't be as creative as Sue in her speech - just be flat out vile.
Malcolm played smart - had he given the HII away to Denise it'd show where his loyalties really lie and Lisa and Supkin would've switched their F3 vote to him sted of her because they stick to promises (well, most of the time).Quote:
Malcolm. I was rather disappointed with him tonight. I was hoping he would honour his agreement with Denise...at least up to this point...and give her that extra HI...just in case. So far, that is the only quibble I have about him and how he has played the game.
Lastly...I would have loved to be on that reward challenge! Swimming with that whale shark was beyond amazing. That is something they will never forget.
And the whale shark was wonderful. Can't believe Michael headbutted it though. They were worried about swimming with them but the shark is one of the most docile ones there - it eats krill and small marine life and ignores humans.
Personally I think both Malcolm and Denise need to win immunity next time or they are gone. If Lisa or Skupin wins I'm not sure what happens. I'm not sure that L & S can beat either D or M, votewise, so not sure what I'd do if I were them. Of course that assumes that we've been given a fair edit of their relationships. :)
I"m pretty sure Abi will never vote for Denise, and probably not for Lisa. I'm guessing RC might vote for the person she saw tell it to Abi, aka Denise. I don't think Jeff will vote for a woman. After that I'm not sure how anyone, including them, could guess where the votes might fall.
Denise may not have won a lot of IIs yet, but she was an excellent competitor in the team immunities. She,and Malcolm, were the only reason those races were even close. I would not count her out at all in this final II, and she can make a good argument that she kept her original team competitive.
I think that it is pretty much anyones game at this point. It will all depend on who wins the final immunity and how well they can argue their case to the jury. Malcolm and Denise, along with Lisa and Supkin have all played as pairs. They have all been very vocal about who they are playing with as pairs and as a foursome. They have all emphasized their loyalty. I think whoever of the pairs flips first and votes out their partner, loses with the jury. Right now that would be between Denise and Malcolm. They are the only ones who have been shown talking about voting out their partner. Lisa and Supkin have been tight throughout. My money is one of either Denise or Malcom going next. If he stays, I think Malcolm has a better chance of swaying the jury, but it will cost him. If Denise stays, I think she loses. I think Lisa and Supkin are in no matter what...baring a fire challenge or pulling rocks because of a tie. If that is the case, my money is on Supkin. He has won more challenges, hasn't ticked off anyone, has survived the target of being a returning player...and I think is generally more liked by the jury members than either Lisa or Denise. I can't wait for Sunday. I hope it will be a really good tribal council and the reunion show should be a blast.
