I wonder why they decided to leave Cindy out of the loop? If she makes it to the final 2 she'll at least have Judd's vote.
have fun with FG Maggie!! Hope the drive wasn't too bad, tis a bit snowy right now.
I love that they aren't sticking to alliances... it's awesome. I bet next week Rafe picks off Steph. Go RAFE!
Since we never see Cindy strategizing, I can't be sure, but I think that Cindy is sticking to that original alliance like a barnacle. Any talk of switching things up, she might go tattling to Judd or something. Although it looks like in the previews she's nervous next week, and she should be. I'd like to see more of her playing the game.
I wonder how Steph would do in the final two. She's got the fact that this is her 'second chance' at the game going against her, plus she appears to be 'in control' of the game right now (although Rafe is just as in control, but no one seems to really notice), so whenever someone gets booted, it's her they're mad at.
A Rafe and Danni final two would be great.
I think Stephenie made a huge tactical error last night. Judd was with her until at least the final 3 and she knew it. There really wasn't a reason to go after Judd at this point. Rafe would have been the smarter move, he has always been just outside of the group and has been kicking ass in challenges. I was just shocked at the lack of thought that had gone into the votes from the side that HAD the numbers.
I would imagine that Steph is the next to go, no one trusts her now and Rafe has Lydia and Danni sewn up as voting partners. She needs immunity and she is too spazzy to win it. I think Steph is out next week followed by Cindy and then its going to be a Danni/Rafe final two. (lydia is the Rudy/Scout this year)
A Rafe and Danni final 2 would be hard to choose between. Rafe has done such a good job at eliminating people from his alliance, yet still remaining in good standing in terms of being trustworthy.
Danni on the other hand has been bullseyed for a while now but is gaining a firm standing. The poor girl just needs some food to stick to her ribs.
Also, I think the fact that Judd compared seeing his wife to having 25 white castle cheeseburgers was quite possibly the greatest thing to ever happen on my television.
My guess is Steph targeted Judd instead of Rafe because she knew Danni would go along with it. Danni probably wouldn't have been as quick to go after Rafe (although I'm sure she'd have gone after anyone if she wasn't wearing the immunity idol).
Judd, Jughead... it's not that far of a stretch
I would love a Rafe-Danni final two! I agree with Todd that Steph made a bad move last night. I think it was a mistake for her because going up against Judd in the final two could have been a surefire win for her. Now, I'm not sure she can win against anyone left. Mabye Lydia. Of course, Steph has never proven herself to be particularly smart strategy-wise.
With all that being said, I am glad that Judd is gone because he annoyed me.
I started out last night hoping Judd would be eliminated. I ended up hoping they would switch to Lydia. Judd says things like "Everyone wants someone to go home tonight, no hard feelings" and then when he's voted out calls them all scumbags with great passion and sincerity and adds that he never lied to anyone, despite having been outed a few times. Lydia can not approach him in entertainment value, for the above and for comparing his wife to White Castles. Steph did mess up. Anyone left in the final 2 with Judd would have had an advantage.
Scumbag! Did you see Probst get all manly for a split second, in case Judd refused to leave?
Does anyone notice that Judd's ouster makes Rafe the only man left? Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he bites the dust next week just to make an all-female final four.
I don't watch the show, but I'm glad Judd's gone. At least, the villain of the season is off, so all's well for the other Survivors.
I too am glad Judd is gone but was hoping they would get smart and vote Steph off, Eithr way--I have to hand it to Rafe--he is playing well and so is Danni.
I hope it is a Danni/Rafe final two.
Steph? What can I say--use to like her but she just annoys me to no end.
Bubbi, how does Stephenie annoy you? And more so than Cindy or Lydia?
Oh Judd - what a classy loser. Such a gentleman. And he never lied once. It's an outrage he got voted off.
I had been worrying that the "Juddinator" (why?) was going to end up being the unpopular person who'd gets kept around to be in the final 2, so I'm glad he's gone. Back to opening doors for rich people again Judd. Oh well. That line from Shakespeare about "a poor player, that struts and frets his hour on the stage and then is heard no more" suddenly seems to be very applicable here.
