    So glad he is getting a second chance. Just remember, if you have immunity.....don't give it up. You are never safe.

    I don't care what that poll at the end of Heroes vs Villains said, I still believe he made the dumbest move in Survivor history...well at least until Colton convinced the other men to give up immunity. I'm happy to see him again though, I just hope he learned from his blunder the first time.

    Part of me hopes he breaks his own record for stupidest move ever with something new that we wouldn't have ever imagined.

    I liked him a lot on his season, and I never really thought he was stupid, just too trusting. And I will always prefer someone who trusts over any manipulative acehole.

    Didn't he list "Ice cream scooper" as his previous profession? So now he's a comic book artist? I wonder if that pays any better?

    Hope he is wiser this time around.

    I think if he gets eliminated, it'll be for being a threat. He was doing quite well on his first season up until he stupidly gave immunity away. I think if anybody who did a stupid move ever learned their lesson, it's this guy. I feel he'll at least be smart enough this time to never give up immunity.

    (Thanks waywyrd!!)

    I'm really impressed with Erik's game right now, for all kinds of reasons.

    First of all, choosing to not vote with the muscled boys was a great choice for him. Not only is he still part of the majority alliance right now, but he is far under the radar as an immunity threat.
    By choosing to not go in with those boys, he knows as long as one of them are still around, and he himself lies low, they will be the target.

    Secondly, not only will those guys be the target for being immunity threats, he himself should be. I think he could be doing better at challenges then we've seen lately... that's pretty smart on his part if it's the case.

    Also, I loved how he was the one who pointed out that the muscled boys may hold back an idol if they change their vote. That was great thinking in a pressure situation.

    So it's working great for Erik because every time a person from the majority alliance gets voted out, like Fillup did last week, and Malcolm, Reynold and Eddie are there, it puts Erik one step closer to the final three... by the time his own alliance sees Erik as an immunity threat, there may be only one or two immunities left, and that may be too late.

    Finally, he seems to fairly well liked among the people there. We haven't really heard if Malcolm's group is holding a grudge against him, but ultimately, they may respect him for this move.

    Right now, because of the strong playing of so many people in this game, I have a lot of people I'd love to see among the top three. Erik is right in there.

    He definitely seems to be playing a more strategic and thought-out game than his first season (let's face it, he had NO GAME the first time around). He was really smart to point out that the two guys had to actually play their idols, not just show them.
