Despite Tyson's horrible table manners, I'm still liking him. He's playing the game hard, but definitely knows it is a game and seems to be keeping any personal feelings out of it. He was being a brat when eating though, that's for sure!
Caleb and Hayden had the right idea to target Tyson, they just chose the wrong girl to tell it to. Ciera will be gone soon enough though. There is no way Tyson will keep her around with all the potential jury votes and with her ability to backstab people (she wrote her mom's name down! ) and her sneakiness. Sure, she's a good little soldier now but he doesn't trust her and I predict a blindside is in her future.
I understand why Laura helped Tina, but at the time, watching it, it rubbed me the wrong way for some reason.
Now, Monica. I can't stand her, but I give her mad respect for what a strong challenge player she has turned out to be. I would probably give her more props, but just knowing her boneheaded husband is probably crowing to everyone who will listen about what a powerhouse his wife is, I just can't. Despite her wins, she's still not viewed as a potential threat to actually win, though. You can tell that Tyson can barely stand to be around her, and really, what strategically has she done?
I hope Tyson or Gervase win, but would prefer Gervase. It would be a great story to have someone from season 1 come back and win in season 27. He's somewhat flying under the radar but he's definitely helping to make the decisions. I hope he can charm the jury if he makes it to the end. I thought Aras and Vytas were shooting all the evil looks to Tyson, but didn't one of them mention Gervase at RI at some point, as having betrayed them? I can't remember, honestly.
I do wonder, though, how Gervase will feel about Tyson keeping the HII a secret from him. Remember BRob's ally (what was his name again?) who was extremely angry to have been kept out of Rob's loop when it came to the HII. It should be interesting to see how that plays out next week.
I'm enjoying the season more than I thought. Tyson dumping his bag out was hysterical.
