For anyone who didn't remember or never saw Penner before, how do you feel about him now?
Last night was a great example of why his fans love him. He's entertaining, smart, resourceful, and adorable. Even the way he left, left them smiling. He was disappointed but accepting about leaving. No bitterness, but disappointed in how he did in the game. Saying "that sucks" to Jeff when his torch was snuffed was great.
Plus the whistling & peeking back in at the end made me laugh.
One of my all time top 5 favorites.:biglove
Carter did however up his status in the tribe so unless Abi manages to really win another immunity he will end up at least in fifth. He played it far smarter.
I was even a Russell Swan fan from his season. He was different this season, or maybe just had more 'flaws' make it on air. :shrug
Penner was the only returnee that I actually didn't remember when their names were announced for this season, and I've seen every season. I did remember his face at the beginning of this season, but still nothing about his game in his prior season(s).
Penner has made me a fan this season. He's the total package. Fun, funny, smart, kind, strategic, all good things. I agree last night he had one of the best exits we've ever seen on this show. My only gripe is that now we won't get to see his FTC speech to the jury, which I'm sure would have been stellar.
You are correct, Lisa still had all her money when Abi bid. Abi was just faster to jump on it.
On to someone else. Darn it my beautiful Blue eyed Penner is gone. :( Can we just watch scenes from Pondrosa now???? :) and I was so looking forward to his final 3 speech at the final TC. I know it would have been a good one. :) Oh well, loved him yelling out Denise's name when he went to vote, even she laughed and his exit was the best I have ever watched, especially the peaking back around the corner whistling. Now he can go off and liven up that boring Pondrosa bunch!!
I have always adored Penner. He seems like a genuine nice, smart, friendly, and cute guy. He has a great attitude about the game and life.
I wish he could win fan favorite but i think that is going to be Malcolm (who I also love). Hope Penner at least is one of the finalists for favorite anyway!
Like I said - they made a mistake here - as most of those who got an advantage have won the II.
He had the best exit ever too - had fun with it and if you can leave Jeff Probst speechless like Penner did (I mean - I've never had him look at the final walk, turn to the tribe and shrug his shoulders).
