It's hard to pick a final three for me, I like too many. My dream final three would include Cochran and Brenda, I think. Otherwise, Erik, Dawn, or Malcolm could take the final spot. But really, any of those five I'd be really happy with. Of course, it all depends on what good or bad moves happen over the next while. As of last week, I would have included Andrea, but not Erik, so it's changeable.
I was watching the "Survivor Know-it-alls" recap on YouTube (with Rob Cesternino and Stephen from Tocantins), and they were debating how good the move really was (they always have interesting discussions, it's a rather long video but I really enjoyed the analysis). Stephen was saying that it would have been better for Malcolm to not announce who they were voting for. That way it wouldn't give SRUs the easy way out, and they would have had to scramble more to make a decision about who to vote for. And Phillip may not have encouraged them to stick with the plan. But who knows what goes on in Phillip's mind.
There was some interesting debate about what the loss of Phillip means. Rob felt that he was the "glue holding SRUs together", and that the alliance is going to crumble without him, but Stephen didn't agree. I agree with Stephen on this one. As much as I like Malcolm, I feel like the 3 are back where they were before, just with Phillip out of the picture. No one really cared about Phillip anyway (in the sense that he was not a threat to win and was just a F3 goat), and the numbers are still uneven. I highly doubt that Sherri would join Reynold and Eddie, since she really doesn't seem to like them, and a few votes ago they (and Malcolm) all voted for her. And it's really hard to say what Erik will do.

Thank you, Endit! Those are priceless.
That second one of Cochran pretty much sums up the whole TC for me.
This isn’t the Sound of freaking Music we’re watching.......sdl
I hope you don't mind Endit but I've just got to give it a try.
It does pay to be part of the cool kids!
I can't believe Eddie never smiled that big for me.
Everybody is finally distracted enough for me to finally be able to scratch my pecans.
Forget Corinne, after that move, I'm now Malcolm's gay!
Why oh why do the cool kids have all the luck?!?
The best Tribal Council evaaaah and I'm a part of it!
Maaalcolm, Maaalcolm . . . read my miiind, don't plaaay the iiidol.
Oh no! I think I just swallowed my top plate!
Phillip/Brenda - Mmmmmm, I wonder if I can be stealth enough to lick her neck without her noticing?
Cochran: I can't figure out what he's thinking. Erik: Hmmmmm, what's a different way to write Phillip?
Must vote out Andrea so I"ll be the only one left that looks good in a bikini.
Never should have named Malcolm THE ENFORCER!
I can definitely see how a childhood experience like that would make these challenges extremely stressful---not as if you ever come across that situation again normally so you'd have had no practice at extinguishing the fear you'd experienced in the situation as a child--it would come right back as a panic attack, etc. Might have been quite unexpected for Phillip even, until he figured out what was setting it off.
One thing those pictures make clear is that people are not using whitening toothpaste! Eddie is definitely going to need a trip to the dental hygientist before the finale!
