I'm in an Alliance Ok, yes I think Sierra is a smart cookie, but she was clueless that she had joined an alliance with Brenden and Taj. The Chance of her picking Taj to go with her was few and far between. ended up being a great move, but it could have been a disaster. Now the key is, will they be able to hold the alliance in what I think will be a shake up next week? Taj vs. Sampson I must say I was very impressed by Taj and Debra in the challenge. Especially after Taj was out on Exile for as long as she was. She is just solid. Like Sands Through the Hour Glass As I mentioned in week one. "Sandy will only be around for 3 more weeks" Did I hit the nail on the head or what. Mama-type personalities just do not bode well in a group. Especially when there are younger people who really are trying to still become independant from their parents. Wow this was short! This will probably be my shortest review all year. The main reason is that this episode just was not one that i walked away thinking "That was Awesome". It happens, sometimes the episode just does not deliver. This was oneo f those episodes. Final 4 I am not going to spend a lot of time discussing this. I feel I still can stick with these 4. Here is the list in no particular order Sierra Brenden Taj Tyson (I know most of do not like him, but he is still keeping his cockiness to himself. That counts for something.)

I love the cross tribal alliance. It was smart that Taj decided to open up and tell Sierra about it and trusting that Brenden just didn't have the chance to talk to her. It certainly was luck that Sierra picked Taj to go with her. Now Taj and Brenden will both have the idols. Impressive move on their part.

If played right those idols will take those 2 to the final 4. They have to be able to watch and listen to see if someone is being blindsided though. It is perfect. (Until someone else goes to Exile and finds that they already have the idols)

At first I was worried when Sierra picked Taj cause I thought that maybee she(Taj) would think that Brenden backed out on there deal or maybee Stephen would think that Taj mis-spoke to him but i guess i was being parnoid for nothing as it all worked out. Coach whining and complaning at the beging about how bad he wants to be the leader and how hurt he was that the tribe picked Brenden over him made me want to throw something at him. If he was sooooooooooo strong and wanted to prove what a leader he is why didn't he step up and show how physically strong he is at the reward challenge? I bet he hoped Brenden would be the first to drop out. The ladies did really well in that challenge. I can't wait for this week. I hope Taj doesn't screw herself up.

Yes, coach does have a way of making someone dislike him. 2 weeks ago he was saying "Let's not go off in our little groups and tear anyone apart" then he goes off with Tyson and starts ripping people apart. He can't even come close to competeing. One of my thoughts is that he may be holding back until the merge. That is a good stradegy but I think the real reason is that he is ALL TALK!

hey dbly, First of all Tyson will let his cockiness show sooner or later. Cocky people can only hide it so long. As for Sandy, I'm really surprised she made it as long as she did. But that often happens when they have people they want to be rid of and figure sooner is better than later. Sandy was just given a reprive until they could get rid of people they felt would be harder to get rid of later. Taj is a tough lady and isn't a threat yet but I'm concerned that she may hit the radar soon. Brenden and her are going to have to be much more careful about picking each other for exile. At first I was afraid that Taj might not confide in Sierra because Brenden hadn't talked to her. She took a risk and it paid off. I think that it is because she trusts Brenden's opinion of Sierra. I'm going to stay with Sierra, Brenden and Taj but I'm not sure if Stephen will make it to the end. So #4 will have to come later. It's not because I'm afraid to stick my neck out, it's because I just haven't seen anyone I like yet. I'll let you know soon. leenie

Thanks leenie, I agree about the Taj and brenden being more careful. My biggest fear is that Taj will become over confident and do something stupid. Tyson...I don't know. He is cocky, but at the same time he seems VERY much in control of his emotions and intentions in the group. I don't think Stephen will go to the final 4. I think that at sometime he will have to choose JT or Taj and he will make a mistake.

doubleloveyou, My views: Taj I must admit that Taj is really a true sport. Her walking over and giving Debra a hug with a good word is both admirable and commendable. So, is her cheering on the sidelines during the immunity challenge. Tyson Quite an intersting character I must say especially with his loin cloth revival. Woongah! Woogah! I am hoping that he makes it to the final 4 but I haven't seen some wit at his end yet. Sandy She is just outspoken in every wrong sense and just did not like her when she went about looking for the hidden immunity on the first day. Real short sighted and narrow minded and I just shook my head that she could oblivious and claiming that she fits in. Wow! She is just playing for her head to come off on the council's chopping board. Farting beans? Huh! Cheers.

I agree Taj is a true sport. I think that is her natural personality, but it will definately help as they move closer to the merge. Tyson is a GREAT player. He is letting coach take all the credit while he can still manipulate. If you think about it he has a way of convince coach that he is the one making the plans. Yes, Sandy was too annoying for me to handle.
