    I'm thinking Orange Team for Reward and Andrea for Immunity.


    I love Andrea. Going to put all my eggs in her basket!

    I have to say that episode might've topped last week for me. Not only did it continue with kicking the strategy into high gear, but it also marks the most points awarded yet! Michael's farewell earns anthem47, skbrettbug, and Taylorg8 60 points each. In addition, anthem, skbrett, and myself win 30 points for correctly guessing the Purple Team would prevail in the Reward Challenge. Also, since the quote was a complete giveaway this week, everyone gets a 25 point bump! Here's where everyone stands:


    1. skbrettbug: 655 points (+115 from last week)


    2. Dfan46: 595 points (+95)*


    3. Taylorg8: 415 points (+85)


    4. anthem47: 410 points (+155!)*


    5. amazing_race: 335 points (+25)


    6. AdaHui: 230 points (+25)


    *Anthem47 -Since it's unlikely that another showmance will present itself later this season, I credited both you and I with the full 40 points for guessing Andrea and Eddie as the romantic pairing. I gotta admit, I expected it to be a genuine relationship but it seems to be more of a strategy ploy for both players involved. It'll be interesting to see how it pans out at the reunion show.


    Looks like Dawn might be unraveling even further next week - she seems determined to steal the #SURVIVORBREAKDOWN Twitter tag from Lisa Whelchel.

    Awesome, knocked out of one pool but jackpot in the other, hehe. And yeah that Andrea/Eddie pairing is quite low key but I think that's a good sign (for them anyway). There did seem to be genuine chemistry there, as genuine as you can be with a camera in your face anyway, it seemed like they were smart enough to think "let's not shove this in people's faces for now, and chase it up later".


    My final three prediction of Dawn, Cochran and Erik is seeming more and more unlikely though, especially given the preview for the next episode!

    The title for Episode 10 is: "Zipping Over the Cuckoo's Nest"


    I can see a couple different players saying this but for my guess I'll go with Cochran uttering it in reference to Dawn's breakdown.


    It looks like there will be an Immunity & Reward Challenge again this week so we can continue with our predictions for both. Judging from the pics online, the Reward Challenge is another team one so I'll post the teams below. The challenge looks almost identical to the Reward Challenge from last season where the players had to slide down into a mud pit and then tunnel through a sand/rice box.


    Orange Team: Eddie, Malcolm, Sherri, Andrea, Brenda


    Purple Team: Reynold, Erik, Dawn, Phillip, Cochran


    I'll go with the Orange Team since it's basically a reduced form of the New Gota.


    As for the Immunity Challenge, it looks like the players will be retrieving rings underneath a platform in the water. I don't recognize it as a challenge from a previous season but it looks similar to the first leg of the second immunity challenge where Erik, Andrea, and Brenda dominated. For that reason, I'll throw my vote toward Erik.

    Is there any reason that I didn't receive points for having Michael as a Merge/Jury person? Feel free to let m know that I'm interpreting the update incorrectly, as it is 2am here and I probably am misreading something!


    Anyway, I'm guessing Orange Team to win the Reward and Andrea for Immunity! Sticking with the same idea from last time - it almost worked!

    Aw, shoot! I was hoping to go the entire season without making an error. Sorry about that amazing_race! You're more perceptive at 2 AM than I am during the day lol. Here's the corrected point totals:


    1. skbrettbug: 655 points (+115)


    2. Dfan46: 595 points (+95)


    3. Taylorg8: 415 points (+85)

    Hmm, for the quote I'll have to agree and go with Cochran as well. For the reward challenge, the Orange team. For the immunity...hmm, tough one! I might go Brenda, maybe she's on a roll.

    That's OK, Dfan! I think I'd make a whole lot more mistakes if I was doing this!


    Oh, and I realised I forgot to try a guess for the quote. For some Reason I think Malcolm for this one. Sticking with Orange Team for Reward and Andrea for Immunity.

    hmmm... Quote will go to COCHRAN for me, reward will be ORANGE TEAM, and Immunity will be ANDREA. It's tough to say but I think Brenda has a leg injury that might harm her chances in the challenge and Erik is a close second.

    I'm with with you on that, skbrettbug. I hate to admit this, but I found myself doing an reenactment of Cochran's Immunity dance when Phillip got the boot. Praise the Gods, the crazies are gone! AdaHui, amazing_race, Taylorg8, and I get 60 points for predicting The Specialist's exit. For the quote, anthem47, Taylorg8, and I get 25 points for guessing Cochran would reiterate his One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest reference. Here are the new totals:


    1. Dfan46: 680 points (+85 from last week)


    2. skbrettbug: 655 points (--)


    3. Taylorg8: 500 points (+85)


    4. amazing_race: 455 points (+60)


    5. anthem47: 435 points (+25)


    6. AdaHui: 290 points (+60)


    As much as I appreciate The Three Amigos move tonight, I don't know if it will result in a complete turnaround in the game. The majority alliance is still in power, and I doubt they can replicate such a clever maneuver at the next Tribal Council.

    The title for Episode 11 is: "Come Over to the Dark Side"


    It's between the Three Amigos for me, so I'll go with Reynold for the quote.


    Since the Food Auction will appear in this episode instead of a Reward Challenge, let's make a prediction for who will buy the advantage in the Immunity Challenge. I know this is a weird guess, but based on what we've seen from the preview I'm betting Cochran is holding out for the advantage and that's why Sherri let him lick her finger (that sounds wrong in so many ways).


    As for the Immunity Challenge, it's the good ol' hold a long log with a rope until it breaks your tile/tiki face from Samoa. I'm thinking Malcolm is desperate for an Immunity Challenge win at this point, so my vote will be for him.


    Just a quick observation: There are still 9 castaways left and only 4 more episodes to air until the finale on May 12th. Me thinks there will be another evacuation and/or quitter in the game, possibly even two.

    Quote: Reynold - it just doesn't sound like something Eddie would say and they seem to be the only likely ones that would make a comment like that.

    Food Advantage - Dawn

    Immunity - Malcolm

    Well, pretty average episode IMO. I knew it would pale in comparison to last week but just about every new development felt telegraphed (Cochran's immunity win via Eddie's confessional, the beginning of the end for the Three Amigos). Anthem47 is on a roll with the quote and challenge predictions and Taylorg8 scored big as well this week. Here are the latest standings:


    1. Dfan46: 770 points (+90 from last week)


    2. skbrettbug: 685 points (+30)


    3. Taylorg8: 615 points (+115)


    4. anthem47: 550 points (+115)


    5. amazing_race: 515 points (+60)


    6. AdaHui: 290 points (--)


    With Malcolm out of the picture, it definitely looks like Reynold and Eddie's days are numbered. I wouldn't be surprised if two people are voted out at the next Tribal Council a la South Pacific - it'd be fun to see the Favorites and Sherri scramble again if one of the amigos wins immunity and gets to hold on to it during a trivia challenge.

    Oh well, I missed it. I would have guessed Reynold would have had the quote and I wouldn't have picked Cochran for anything, so no harm done!
