Oh How the Mighty have Fallen In seeing the previews I would have assumed that Russell had hurt himself. But it was quite the surprise to see how he went down. He was a fierce competitor and hard worker. Truly Galu may have lost the driving force that could have brought them victory. You have to admit though, he went down giving it ALL that he had. Russell…I salute you! To Strengthen My Resolve I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that this could be the turning point in this game. Both teams now have made bold statements. On one side you have Foa Foa who are really down to what I believe are 5 of the strongest players in the game. On the other side you have Galu who has a score to settle after their tie/loss to Foa Foa. It will be very interesting on who stands up to dominate this part of the game. A Second Wind Foa Foa, I believe, may have found a second win. But in order to make it to the merge they have to win the next few immunity challenges. And with Russell S gone that is a very good possibility. I do not believe that Galu has the organization and the motivation without Russell. A Sidewinder Although the focus was not on Russell H this week, I do see that he is still slithering through the grass and according to previews for this week, will be making a move on the other side. This is how a man that has nothing to lose plays the game. He is able to take risks without worrying about the outcome of those risks. Final Four As we get closer to the impending merge I have seen a little clearer of how things are falling. Therefore here are this weeks Final Four picks. Russell H Dave Erik Natalie Pastor G

Pastor G., I agree, Russell S. was the driving force and people listened to him, though not always agreed with him. I think Erik might have the potential to be a good new leader. I'm holding my opinion till I see him in action. Shambo would be good except no one would listen to her. With the snake trying to lure Laura into an alliance may be the big mistake of his game. Galu is a tight group with the exception of Shambo and I can see Laura going back to her tribe with the info. I do want to say that Russell S. used his heart and not enough of his head to make some vital decisions. Aside from the obvious, he should not have played that last challenge. But he was so determined that he had to do it and that no one else could help the tribe win, he took himself and the tribe down. It was so obvious that he should not have played, but he refused to listen to anyone including his own body. He has a big heart but as we have seen over the years, big hearts don't win. Sorry if I sound too critical. OK, Final 4.... Mick Erik Jaison Dave I think Russell has in mind to get rid of Natalie next. Weak link as he calls them. I could be wrong!! Leenie

No, I think Russell will get rid of Liz next. BUT...I do not think they will have to vote. I think Foa Foa will win immunity. I think they really do have the momentum and Galu, aside from their talk, has lost a strong person and great motivator. I would love to see Jaison in the final 4, but he has a long way to go and he is still a whiner. Their will be some double eliminations. They will have to inorder to get the numbers down quicker. They are in week 6 and still have 13 people playing. That put them at the half way mark where with 16 to start they would have been down to 9 or 8. I think Russell can pull off the final 4. We will soon see.

doubleloveyou, I must admit that this series is indeed like a television serial drama with that Russell character. I do not know about Foa Foa getting a second wind as they are quite depleted in numbers. It is sad to see Russell (Galu) to go down like that without a challenge. But watching what he did, I just felt that it will be about time the elements will catch up with him. Survival is not to be trivial and we should never try to challenge the elements. I am also quite surprised why they did such a poor job with the shelters. I see your final 4 except for Russell where I am quite sure he will be caught red handed at some point of time. (Confident) Cheers.

I think it will be a combination of Foa Foa having a near win, Galu loosing Russell which may allow Foa Foa a chance to get the upper hand. From what it looked like Russell was the motivator in the camp and with out him their may not be the unity they need to stay on top. We'll just have to see. On Russell H, I believe that if he can make it to the merge he can make it to the final 4.
