Survivor was back this week and even though some folks find watching the execution of Upolu's disciplined game plan a bit too predictable, there was still plenty of action to get us talking! Coach continues to make significant progress in the game, but many folks acknowledge it begrudgingly. His hyperbolic explanations and supposedly learned, but often incorrect references which are crafted with the intent of impressing us continue to backfire. It often seems like he is so busy patting himself on the back that there is little room left for us to cheer for him. Sophie continues to be a front runner too when it comes to predicting who will make it to the final tribal council, but there is not a lot of hard data one can point to by way of explanation. Unlike Coach, we are left with the impression that she is intelligent and coldly logical, but the comparisons to Andrea and Ashley from last season that a couple fans made this week may be closer to the mark than we would like to believe. A few folks are forcibly optimistic for John Cochran's future, but most believe that Ozzy has already crossed him off his hit list.
For each new episode, we provide 3 podcasts: an episode recap, an interview with the castoff, and a chance for Survivor fans like yourself to sound off on what you saw and how you think the castaways are fairing in the game. Twenty fans shared their thoughts on episode 12 and predictions for what we'll see next.
