    What undid the plan was Phillip falling on his sword. They announced that they'd be voting for Phillip with the idea that he'd want to stay in the game and thus the alliance would fracture as Phillip scrambled for another target. That would have worked if Phillip had any sense of self-preservation. But instead Phillip decided to force their hands for the idols, which sealed his own fate. I can only assume that he thought one of them wouldn't play the HII without realizing that instructing everyone to vote as agreed would virtually guarantee the idols' play. He seemed to believe that he was in a winning position (and it's likely he would have been taken to F3 again), but he gave that up in favor of others, which isn't something that Malcolm planned on him doing.

    Because Phillip put the alliance over himself (or because he thought it was really good odds that they were bluffing the HII's?) they're back where they were, but if Phillip had played with more self-interest it would have been a better outlook for the three.

    Reynold is apt to say it's about time that someone so attractive is picked to win. LOL
    Yeah I could see that.

    Will the others know that Erik voted for Phillip? I mean if he doesn't tell them? I think they only read 3 votes for Phillip and that was enough so they stopped reading votes, so it may be that people think it was just Reynold (male chauvinist pig extrodinare) Eddie and Malcolm.

    To be fair to Evande, I'm also looking forward to Ponderosa, and though I would dumbfounded if Fillup turned out to be nice/normal, I would love it if he was.

    Phillip's first Ponderosa video is up. Take the needle out of your arm, spock, he is nuts.

    Honestly? I think Erik thought about sticking with the original voting plan in order to force the amigos to play their idols. Phillip was more concerned with protecting his integrity than anything. I honestly think he fell on his own sword out of some grandiose idea of nobility, not any sense of game play whatsoever.

    Yes, if they think about it--at least Cochran, student of the game, will know. They know Jeff drags out the suspense as long as possible. If there had been 3 votes for Malcolm he would have read them, but there were apparently just two...which means there must have been 4 for Phillip.

    Actually that's not true. Only Malcolm is strategizing. Reynold's and Eddie's plan is to find the HII and win IC. I can't blame them, its 3 against 7 and Malcolm tried to get Erik and Sherri on board but they didn't go for it. I wonder what YOU would do if you were In their place. Glad that Philip is gone, he has become so delusional and arrogant that he even believes his own story.
