Interesting edit last night. When Malcolm wins the reward challenge, his hair is down. In the next shot, as Jeff calls him over, his hair is tied back. It's a small thing, but I usually find the editing much smoother, do that you're not as aware of the passage of time.

Anyone notice how well Skupin did physically in the challenges against a much younger Malcolm? Could make things interesting at the end. I also think it bodes well for my theory that he could have taken Colby out 12 years ago had he not fallen into the fire & gone into the merge up 6-4.

Didn't he say on the rewards challenge that he hasn't had a soda in like thirty years or something? I can't even imagine! I would bet he's a very healthy eater, which definitely plays into the great shape he's in....

Yeah, 30 years. There was a time when I wouldn't go more than 30 minutes without one

The final challenge is often an endurance or mental one. So being a physical threat may not mean as much. I'd say based on past final challenges, Denise probably has the best shot. I also think they have several challenges available and trot out the one likely to result in the most interesting win.

Agree with all this. The next one is likely to the the physical one & then the balance thing at the end.

I almost got the feeling that Malcolm may not have been giving 100% trying to win that reward challenge. Choosing only 2 people from the 3 in your alliance puts you in a pretty tough position. Might have been a strategic decision on his part... or might be wishful thinking on my part. LOL

I'm a Malcolm fan and I'm afraid he'll be in big trouble if he doesn't win the final immunity challenge, so maybe that theory is just grasping at straws so I can go on thinking he can win whatever challenge they throw at him next.

Even if I'm right Skupin did beat the ladies pretty handily though, so I give him props on that. Of course I think Denise is the biggest physical threat among them, and since she was dealing with some kind of toxin in her body, she certainly wasn't at 100%.

I don't have any experience dealing with millipede/centipede bites, which from the secret scene interview with Denise is what they think it was, but I've been stung by nasty AZ bark scorpions a few times and I can guarantee I wouldn't have been able to do my best on a physical challenge that soon after being stung, even with adrenaline pumping.

Looking forward to the finale on Sunday!

I think Malcolm did just enough in that challenge to make a good showing but he wanted someone else to win and have to pick who was going on the reward. With the possible exception of Abi winning the challenge, he was probably going on the reward.

I always wondered why nobody takes the easy out. If it were me, I'd tell everyone to go back to the game and finish it, then take second and third place with me.

Lisa is annoying but "light" compared to Abi. After being called Moron, stupid etc on National TV I would be dancing too

Plus after facts she got married and left acting behind

So the only ones who had a chance of knowing who she was did but chose not to out her
First, it's still in reruns and always has been afaik.

Second though, there are a lot of players old enough to have known who didn't - Denise, for one, Artis, that other returning jerk, Jeff, etc.

Penner and Skupin know she is Blair Warner but the facts of life was a second tier 80's sitcom that had character names and a theme song that was memorable than any of the actual people. if the facts of life is still in reruns i'd like to know which channel it's on because i watch tv land and nick at nite all the time and i have never seen it.

You must have a lot more channels than me LOL. I haven't seen it in years. Russell was the other returning player and yes they all should have known who she was.
