So Michael — my Fan pick to win it all — got the boot, which means it’s now up to my Favorites pick of Dawn to prove me smart. I have picked runner-ups in each of the last two seasons (Chelsea in One World and Skupin in Philippines), which is pretty good, but I’m tired of being a bridesmaid. For his part, Michael had a fun exit, giving the tribe the finger while making a farting sound and calling them all “turkeys.” If only he had stuck the word “jive” in front of it.
So another excellent episode of moves and countermoves as Survivor: Caramoan finally begins to gain some steam while lending some much-needed credibility to Probst’s prediction of a great season. Why, it’s enough to make someone cry tears of joy. Someone like, say…Dawn! Judging from the preview for next week, the tears are back in full effect, but if she does in fact pull herself from the game, I WILL NEVER FORGIVE HER! And neither will my buddy Janae.
And you will never forgive yourself if you do not read my weekly Q&A with Jeff Probst, who adds his two cents on Malcolm's crazy Tribal Council move. And you will never forgive yourself if you do not check out the exclusive deleted scene in the video player below. You will totally forgive yourself for not following me on Twitter, but if you want Survivor scoop sent right to you, you can do that as well @DaltonRoss. Now it’s your turn. Did you dig tonight’s episode? Who are you rooting for and against at this point? And how badass was that immunity challenge? Hit the message boards to let us know. One last note: I’ll be off on vacation next week so your scoop of the crispy will be cooked up by none other than super-sub Jessica Shaw. Have a good one and I’ll be back in two weeks!
