I had a feeling that Abi would not be going home. And it seemed like the whole show was rigged that way to help her stay. Seriously, the whole season she has only participated in 3 challenges and she sucks at them. And they give her one that all she has to do is untie knots! Give me a break. Abi sees what everyone else is doing wrong, but she can’t see how she treated everyone for 20 something days before they told her how mean she was. She just can't understand why people don't like her. Hope she sees things differently after she is sitting at home watching the show. One can only hope.

I thought Penner was whistling the Survivor theme song. Now I wish I hadn't deleted it.

I can't stand the girl, BUT I will have to say, she played a good game this week. Holding onto her money knowing from past Survivor auctions there would be an advantage at some point, faking everyone out with the fake idol, reading the first message out of supposedly two messages on the note... really HATE to admit it, but great strategy there!

Again, GREAT strategy of Abi's! She jumped in as soon as the word "advantage" was out of Jeff's mouth, giving no one else a chance at bidding against her.

I too am very suspicious of that challenge. Seems like it was designed specifically for Abi to win, especially bc they didn't even use the big ropes for the knots - they used very thin cords easily undone by her tiny fingers (as opposed to a man's). Just reeks of interference by the producers.

OOOOOH! Good catch there!! I was wondering why he was so deliberate in whistling that tune. I need to go rewatch online! (I'm over 40 and loved that show - can't believe I didn't catch that!)

I thought the same thing.

So, I re-watched the end of the episode. I think Penner WAS whistling the Survivor theme song. I think The Facts of Life theme would have been funnier!

That's what I thought too. It sounded like the Survivor theme song.

I wouldn't stop at that point. Finally TC will be very entertaining if she's there.

I couldn't make it out, or what he was doing. Penner was making some kind of movement in the trees, making like he was leaving, then coming back, just dragging it out.

Abi-Maria is a [word I can't use here] and would not get any votes at FTC, so I can see the appeal of keeping someone like that around. If I were Lisa and Skupin, I'd be worried about a Carter immunity run (where the heck did he come from, and darn if he isn't really performing in these IC's) and ending up with a F3 of Skupin, Lisa and Carter. Carter likely wins that match up.

As awful as Abi-Maria is, it will be funny if she is out next week and has to spend time with the other jury members. The fireworks between her and RC would be awesome.

Anyone else spend the episodes simply enjoying the faces Carter makes? I mean seriously...looks like there isn't a thought at all in that head.

I am skeptical about the "reality" of Abi Maria winning immunity. Nevertheless, it would be a great strategy to bring her to the final.

I was amused that Jeff Probst cannot properly say the word potato. It was more like Buh-tay-tuh.

I say it like that sometimes - it's just a slangy way of saying potato. Maybe it's a regional dialect type of thing. I'm from the midwest and Jeff was born in Kansas.

Agreed - ditto for those who just jumped straight to $500 when they saw the food they wanted. Wasn't like you'd be able to eat 2 jumbo sandwiches, so just jump to $500 when you see what you want.

I agree. Anyone who can make it to final 3 with them to wins. No one will vote for Abi and I sure Jonathan will tell Kurt who Lisa is so those two will get no jury votes.
