    The title for Episode 4 is: "Persona Non Grata" ("an unwelcome person")


    Episode Description:


    One member of the Favorites tribe becomes so agitated by perceived slights that a rampage ensues in the camp area.


    I almost want to have us predict who this quote is directed at because then everyone would get points. We'll stick to the original form of guessing, though. To me, this sounds like Phillip wanting to express his diverse language skills in a confessional. What's everybody else's take on it?

    I'm tempted to say Cochran just to be different, but it really is a Phillip thing to say, haha. I'll go Phillip as well.

    The answer is likely Phillip but I just want to be different

    My vote will be for Dawn

    So now that we're in the Pre-Merge phase of the game, I'll update our guesses. Andrea, Brandon, Brenda,Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Julia, Michael, Reynold, and Sherrie are all predicted to be out before the merge by at least one user. Corinne appeared in 5 out of 6 lists, while Erik and Brandon are on 3. I'm actually pulling for Corinne to make the merge - I think Ponderosa and the Jury would be more entertaining with her around.


    Of the 5 castaways leftover, Malcolm, Eddie, and Cochran are the only 3 players expected to make it past the merge by everyone (Matt was a First Boot pick for amazing_race and Taylorg8; Phillip was for anthem47).


    I wish there was a little more information regarding the Survivor first that's being tauted around this next episode so we could include it in our game. I'm betting it involves Brandon's meltdown and the possibility of him being disqualified for ruining the tribe's food supply - isn't there a rule that says contestants can't tamper with other player's possessions? I know rice isn't necessarily a possession, but technically it's shared by the entire group.

    I have to go with PHILLIP as well. It just seems like a very Phillip thing to say. Cochran would be the only other possibility imo, but Phillip is most likely.

    Good goodness, what a strange episode that was! I wish the Favorites would have gone ahead with throwing the challenge instead of us having to endure Brandon's nonsensical outburst (although I'm sure his behavior at an actual Tribal Council would have been just as ridiculous). The psych counselors clearly looked the other way during his pre-show evaluation. I'm already dreading the requisite follow up at the reunion because I know Jeff loves pandering to the Hantz family - that shoulder rub was all kinds of creepy.


    Anyways, at least there's a silver lining to all this craziness. This week marks the most amount of points awarded for a quote yet (sorry AdaHui, hopefully Dawn will get her sound bite in the near future). In addition, Brandon's departure results in a 75 point bump for amazing_race, skbrettbug, and myself. The current rankings are as follows:


    1. Skbrettbug: 415 points (w/ possibility of 50 point category bonus) (+100 points from last week)


    2. Dfan46: 315 points (+100)


    3. Amazing_race: 210 points (+75)


    4. Taylorg8: 205 points (+25)


    5. Anthem47: 105 points (+25)


    6. AdaHui: 80 points (--)


    Looks like a tribe change-up is in store next week. I'm curious as to how it will all pan out - hopefully it isn't as severely lopsided as One World's pre-merge shuffle. I sympathize for the tribe that has to return to the current Gota camp, though.

    Got too busy last week and completely forgot to guess for the episode title! That is a shame, as I would have guessed Phillip.

    Well, amazing_race, judging from this week's Episode title, you may be in luck with your Phillip prediction. The title for Epiosde 6 is: Operation Thunder Dome


    Episode Description:


    Two castaways scheme to get their opposing number out of the game but a twist may foil one, or both, of their plans.


    Like I said, this one has Phillip written all over it. Unless it's someone mocking his strategic approach, this is coming from the mouth of The Specialist.


    There have been whisperings online about a potential romantic pairing this season and I think it'd be another fun component to include in our game. Other than the dry humping within the pretty people alliance on the Gota tribe, there haven't really been any sparks between the castaways yet so I have to believe there's a possibility that the mixing up of the tribes next week will bring us the hinted-at showmance. I could be wrong and it may not pop up until the merge or later but why don't we plan ahead and get our predictions in before the opportunity passes us by?


    Since this guess requires a combination of 2 castaways, here's how the points will work: if either of your predicted castaways are part of the relationship, you'll receive 15 points for a correct guess; get both players right and a 10 point bonus is yours (for a grand total of 40 points).


    I can definitely see Eddie being smitten with one of the younger Bikal women but for my prediction, I'm gonna go with Julia & Cochran. I think it would be really refreshing to see 2 intelligent people get together on the show (Probst stated Julia a super high IQ in his cast assessment) and while it may not necessarily be the smartest move in the game, I can't help but root for Cochran to find some island love this time.

    haha I so knew not picking Phillip was going to bite me in the ass. Damn you Phillip


    LOL Hmmm, romantic pairings. If they switch up the tribes, I can see Reynold trying to smooze one of the ladies but I think the ladies of Bikal would be too smart to let their games get messed up. So my next pick would be Julia as well......hmmm, Eric or Cochrane?


    Might as well go with gut and say Julia and Eric.



    Oops, and I predict Phillip will say the title (which of course means it'll be someone else like Malcolm hahah)

    Yeah I think I'll go Phillip for this title too.


    The romantic pairing is a bit trickier...been sitting here agonising for far too long, haha. After almost locking in Eddie and Andrea, I decided Andrea's a bit too switched on to find Eddie attractive, because he's a bit of a doofus. I'm set on Reynold then (because he's a playa, heh)...and Corinne. It's a bit crazy, but it just might work. Reynold and Corinne.


    (Although that Julia/Cochran pairing that was suggested would be awesome).

    I'll say Phillip for the quote and abstain from the romance. I have no idea what could happen. I'll say Reynold (no girl)hope for the best that he's right. Can I get 15 points for that?

    Yeah, that's perfectly fine skbrettbug. Considering you're schooling the rest of us in the boot off order I don't think anyone will object to this.

    I'll say PHILLIP for the episode title. The romance is so tricky. Julia and Sherri don't seem like likely showmance people and most of the Favorites women seem like they are too game focused to get caught up in that. I almost want to say no one but then again I want to say Andrea or Brenda and Eddie. So I guess I'll go NO SHOWMANCE despite the rumors.

    definitely Phillip for the episode title, although I believe this one could potentially be stated by more than one castaway. (e.g. Phillip created this operation and then other people are discussing it in their confessionals)


    No idea for this showmance thing but I'm gonna be different and just say Reynold & Brenda for no apparent reason.

    Alright, so the preview for this week basically reveals that there will indeed be a tribe switch-up. I won't post the new tribes on here in case any of you would rather wait to see how it pans out, but suffice it to say that the preview on CBS's website more or less gives away where each castaway will end up.


    If anyone would like to change their initial guesses about the romantic pairing based on how the tribes are shuffled you may do so before the episode airs on Wednesday. Again, this development may not appear until later but since there's new information available via the preview I wanted to notify everyone before the episode in case anyone wants to make a new prediction.


    [WARNING: MINOR SPOILER BELOW (2 CASTAWAYS WHO ARE ON THE SAME TRIBE)]




    As much as I'd like to see the Julia & Cochran power couple, I think an Andrea & Eddie pairing is more likely to happen so that will be my revised guess.

    Egads, the tribe shake up.....wowzers is what I got to say. Since my pair aren't on the same tribe, I guess I'll change my pick to....

    Reynold & Brenda

    For no other reason other than Reynold seems the type to latch on to some female right away and despite Brenda wanting to play the game different, I can see them hooking up

    Unfortunately the CBS site is blocked outside the US, so after dicking around with IP proxies without much luck, I resorted to carefully combing through the SurvivorSucks forums for a list, hehe. So if anyone has the same problem I had, this photo should do it: http://i1340.photobucket.com/albums/o722/bluejays961/Picture15_zps824dde81.png (Next episode spoilers of course, at your own risk!)


    And with that in mind, I'll change my vote back to Andrea and Eddie. I know I said Andrea seemed too smart for that but, well, love is blind!

    Thanks to amazing_race's better ears and quick response, I can now update the standings. I'm glad Phillip uttered the quote, otherwise this would have been an uneventful week for our game - Matt wasn't a pre-merge pick for any of us lol. Here's where everyone stands:


    1. skbrettbug: 440 points (+25 from last week)


    2. Dfan46: 340 points (+25)


    3. amazing_race: 235 points (+25)


    4. Taylorg8: 230 points (+25)


    5. anthem47: 130 points (+25)


    6. AdaHui: 105 points (+25)


    I'm a little bummed the showmance didn't present itself tonight but maybe it will be fodder for an episode in the near future. All I can say is I'm glad I switched my guess from Cochran & Julia because he had no problem wanting to give her the boot after she denied him a hug at the tribe switch.

    The title for Episode 7 is: "Tubby Lunchbox"


    Episode Description:


    Phillip's demeanor is starting to wear thin with his tribe. One castaway decides to share information with his fellow castaways that could change his future in the game and others.


    I'm betting this will be part of one of Corinne's zingers. I can totally see her saying this about Phillip if Bikal loses the challenge in the preview. Who do you guys think it will be?
