Episode 1
I'm a Mental Giant

So long...

....Darnell. I've watched every single episode of every single season and there is always one dumb player that willing tells the other people on their tribe that they can do "such and such". There were actually a few players that did that tonight and it left me questioning their ability to even play the game. Have they never watched any previous seasons? Why the hell do new players continue to do this? Why build yourself up in the eyes of your tribe mates, building up expectations? You paint a target on your back when you inevitably fail. Dumb. That's exactly why Darnell is gone and rightly so. New season, first episode and already the majority of the players annoy me. A lot of hot chicks, but Alicia, as cute as she is, better change her game because she will be the next one voted out with arrogant attitude.

Episode 2
Kindergarten Camp

So long...

...Jenny. WTF Jen, wtf!!! Seriously, what the f*ck would compel you to open your mouth at Tribal Council and tell your alliance that "things are up in the air". She walked into the trap that Jeff Probst lays out in each and every Tribal Council. For any fan of the show, you should and would know this is what Jeff does. Best thing to do is answer Jeff with as little  as possible. If I were on the show and I was asked anything from him, I would just find one word to answer his question and then shut up. Actually, I wouldn't say anything. Period.

Episode 3
The Circle Of Life

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)



So long...

...Liz. Sigh. Back to back weeks in voting off hot chicks, the hottest being Liz. With a bunch of uggo's running around the island, having some eye candy helps get through the pains of the first few weeks of the new season. And with the hotness dwindling away, it's going to make this even harder to get through. Right now, I'm not digging this season at all. Hate pretty much everyone on the Island right now.

Episode 4
Signed, Sealed and Delivered

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

.....Caleb and Alicia. Good riddance to Alicia! She should have been voted out in Week 1. She was and is awful at both the game and with people. Talk about a person with sh*tty social skills. Glad to see her gone. With that out of the way, the story for this episode happens in the first 30 minutes with the Reward Challenge that ends up dropping not one, not two, but three players at once. I've never seen this happen on Survivor with so many going down at once. All 3 suffering from severe heat stroke. Debbie was the first, followed by Caleb and then Cydney. Caleb was the only one that couldn't recover and was promptly evacuated and it was the right call. He looked lifeless, which was scary to see.

Episode 5
The Devils We Know

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)



So long...

...Anna. Sigh. Another hot chicks kicked off the Island. Man, without some eye candy for me, this is going to be even harder to get through this season because right now it's one of the worst. Boring ass players that don't know their ass from their elbows. Stupid and dumb sums it up. Hopefully once they get to the merge, things will pick up.

Episode 6
Play or Go Home

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)



So long...

...Peter. Yay, finally they saved a hot (cute) chick and got rid a useless player that had no game. At least I get to watch Julia for one more week, if not longer. With that said, I don't understand how these people are playing the game. They are clueless. Why are they allowing themselves to be brow beaten by Joe, an old, retired Ex-FBI agent? Why are they following his lead, the absolute worst player in the game right now. Baffling.

Episode 7
It's Merge Time

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)



So long...

...Neal. So, we make it to the merge and this is where things usually pick up because now it's every man (and woman) for themselves. This is where strategy really starts to take root. It's separates the good players from the bad. Everything was going along swell and then.....Pfftt. No Tribal Council because the Island Doctor felt the need to pull Neal from the game because of a huge.....or don't know what to call it. Boil? The one on his back was nasty, but the one on his knee was cut open and oozing. Yuck. I didn't think Neal was much of a player, but he had a Hidden Immunity Idol and that always makes things on Survivor unpredictable, which is a good thing.

Episode 8
The Jocks Vs. The Pretty People

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)



So long...

...Nick. Beyond the satisfaction of seeing him happy face morph into "oh f*ck me" at the knowledge of getting voted off, the episode itself was just blah. Worst group of players ever.

Episode 9
It's Psychological Warfare

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Debbie. Finally, a decent and entertaining episode that really had nothing to do with game play, but everything to do with the tribe of 3 looking to sabotage their camp by hiding machetes and axes and dousing the fire with water just so that they could get an advantage in the game. Even better was watching everyone f*cking up the Immunity Challenge during the "Domino's" game. Funny stuff watching people knocking their sh*t over at the most critical time. Tribal Council was also funny with the whole Super Idol show they were putting on.

Episode 10
II'm Not Here to Make Good Friends

So long...

...Scot. It's about f*cking time! I hate this guy. Never heard of him playing for the NBA until the start of the season, but I'm sure that if I knew of him from that, I would also hate him. They guy sucks at this game. His ego is what got him booted and rightly so. I wasn't sure of Tai had the balls to actually make a massive play that was needed. He has a kind soul and I had him pegged as someone that wouldn't be able to say 'No' to Scot, especially with the entire world watching. Intimidation is real and he could have easily succumbed to it. It was awesome seeing the look on Scot's face when he realized that he just got f*cked, not once, but twice in the span of 3 seconds. Karma. Haha.

Episode 11
It's A Me Game, Not A We Game

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Julia. Hate to see her go. She's cute and easy on the eyes. But I knew she wasn't long for the game because she wasn't subtle in how she was playing both sides, the easiest way to p*ss off everyone and she couldn't be trusted. The game is really starting to get interesting now and I thought that Jason did a great job of planting seeds of doubt in everyone's mind during the Tribal Council. If I were sitting on the council and having to listen to Jason spin everything, I would have been super paranoid myself.

Episode 12
Now's the Time to Start Scheming

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Jason. I'm really trying to understand what makes Tai tick. The most unassuming player ever, or so we think, turns out to be his own worst enemy. I think there is some insecurity issues he is dealing with because it's the only explanation as to why he feels the need to reveal so much of his game at the most inopportune time ever. What's makes it all the more insane is that he chooses to do it during Tribal Council. Talk about a man completely unaware of what he is doing. It cost him his "Advantage" which he basically threw away for nothing.

Episode 13
With Me or Not With Me

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Joe. Man, it's gotta suck big time being this close to the end and realizing that your shot at winning a cool million comes to an end because of constipation. I'm surprised that he even made it this far given that he was 71. Very impressed. So, 3 players have been pulled from the game this season, making this a first for Survivor. I've seen brutal conditions before, more than what I saw this season. But it's the small things that really crippled the players. Season Finale next week. I don't have a clue who even has the inside track to winning it all, so I'll just go with Aubrey.

Episode 14 & 15
Not Going Down Without a Fight / Reunion Show

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


And the winner is....

....Michelle. Ya know, last week I said it would be Aubrey. But as soon as Michelle won the Immunity Necklace, I knew she had it locked up based on how she came on in the later half of the game. It's not how you start, it's how you finish and no one could match her dominance, winning 4 Immunity's is a hard thing to overtake from a player. Also, she had a great story in how she was perceived to be a "lesser" player because she was on the Beauty Tribe to start the game. Yes, she looks great, but she was a fierce player and made the adjustments she needed to make. As popular as Tai was for the fans of the show, I knew he wouldn't get any votes at the end.

Speaking of Tai, how popular was in on the show? Popular enough to make Sia (the singer) show up on the Reunion Show just to commend him for how he treated animals and all living things. She donated a cool $50k to him and another $50k to his Animal Charity of his choice. That's a nice way to end things. Overall, this season started off horribly. One of the worst starts ever. But it finished strong. It got better over time and the players that ended up in the Final 3 were good.
