I agree. I agree that this was teh perfect time for the move, but she should have made sure that it was all Cochran.

Never said she was evil, just that she made a bad call given everything that Brenda had helped her with.

I haven't really liked Dawn in either season. I don't think she is a good player and her crying (or whatever that is) is getting old.

The crying is really too much. I can't wait for the finale when she has to try to explain away her crazy. You know Jeff is going to ask her about the crying.

I know you didn't. But you replied to one of my posts, which began with me saying that I didn't think Dawn deserved all the hate she is getting. So while I know you aren't one of the ones bashing her or wishing her dead even jokingly, I began my "it's just a game" posts because of the Dawn hate posts so I was keeping my focus on that.

I think Dawn is an ok player. I don't think she can win unless she was in a final 3 of her, Sherry, and Phillip, but you could say that Boston Rob could only beat Phillip and a player who did nothing all game like Natalie so that's not the worst thing to say about a player. She knows how to get very far in the game and that's more than can be said of a lot of players. Brenda would win against almost anyone in a final tribal, but she doesn't know how to make people willing to go to the end with her. It's kind of a draw for me, but Dawn is going to end up with a bigger paycheck than Brenda* so there's that.

*I realize Brenda could win fan favorite and end up with more money, but I am counting game play paycheck.

I think Dawn deserves the bashing she's getting. Last night, it was like she'd totally lost her mind. I can understand tears because the wrongness of having to backstab people, when you normally don't act that way, is getting to you.

But clearly, that was not the reason she was crying. She was crying because SHE didn't get to spend time with her family. She was crying because Brenda got the glory, and she didn't. It was all about her. She never once said that she understood why Brenda would make that choice, she never thanked Brenda for wanting to pick her to accompany her on the reward, she just went on and on complaining about how unfair it was to her.

In fact, there was no emotion AT ALL from her when she backstabbed Brenda, her close friend. None whatsoever! Was this not the girl who rescued her dental implant when she was freaking out a few days back? Had she not said that she loved her and was so happy to have her there? Maybe they just didn't show it. But while before I thought she was just plain whiny . . . now I think she's whiny, heartless, and self-centered.

I don't think comparing her with Rob is a good comparison. Other than his first season, fans and players both liked Rob and he always was a good game player. Dawn isn't. She has only got this far because she was part of a big alliance.

Dawn's playing a game that we've seen before, and it's not going to end well for her. We've seen other seasons where very strategic men align themselves with more social women, and use them as the information gatherers. Dawn has built relationships with people that make them think she is on their side, she relays the information to Cochran, and they use it to stay one step ahead. That's everyone's mistake this year (Malcolm, Corinne, Brenda), they've all thought Dawn was on their side. Cochran is using her to play a game at arm's length, which is really smart.

I think that Dawn would have come across better if she had warned Brenda that she was going to get votes. I think it's the blindside of someone who was looking out for you, without you looking out for them in some way, that made it seem so bad. I really really hated that tribal. They were lying to her face. It's no wonder she was hurt so badly. At least we know from her Ponderosa film that she isn't all mad...just hurt. Brenda knows its a game.

Where can we vote for the fan favorite? I can't find it on the CBS website.

They're calling it "Player of the Season." Hope the link works

I cast my votes about an hour ago on CBS.com. You have to log on to vote. Brenda received all of my votes. Malcolm was my previous favorite, but after this last tribal, my choice changed.

I don't get why they don't try other areas as well. Its been about 95% in the South Pacific. With 2 in Africa, a few South America and 1 Australia. There are so many other places they could try. I've often wondered why not the obvious Caribbean Island? Seems that would be closer and cheaper for them to do. There are so many other places, the Galopagos Islands, Madagascar would be cool, the Canary Islands, you could go on and on.

While I felt badly for Brenda when she was voted out, there is no way IMO that she is Player of the Season.
