Wow, I am loving this season! Love the anticipation of which "villian" will prevail! It's strange, I could not stand Rob and Amber on their seasons, couldn't stand them even more on the all stars season, was sick to death of them on The Amazing Race, yet on this season I find myself rooting for Rob over Russell! Maybe it was that rare moment of vulnerability when he passed out and cried!
I was sorry to see Tyson go. He is so funny, I was hoping to see more antics from him. Would LOVE to see him and Coach on AR!

yeah, you're right, I didn't think of that! it would be pretty obvious! That makes it all the more amazing that Russell found it so many times on his season- or that the other players were that oblivious that they didn't notice!

The fact that Russell gave her the idol at TC was masterful. He could have just as easily quietly given it to her earlier in the day, and no one would have known that he had it in the first place. It would have been a safer move, but I think he gets a lot more mileage out of it this way.
Oooooh, good points! It's amazing how they come up with these elaborate plans, and think through every little detail like that, how their actions will affect their standing with each member of the tribe! But, what else do they have to do but think.
