Elaine calling the challenge a Redneck challenge cracked me up. I really hope she wins. Karishma seems really unpleasant, I won't be sad to see the back of her, but she's the unpopular one being carried to the final 3 as it stands ugh.

Haven’t watched last night’s episode so I’m not sure on the temperature in the room now, but I thought I’d throw some fuel into the fire of last week’s discussion. Apparently the viewership ratings for Survivor last night went UP. I suppose this means the general audience was not nearly so sickened as some of us and other Survivor fans who publicly considered quitting the season or show.

It also means CBS is likely to take this as a positive sign.

:(

I did not watch last night and I'm going to continue sitting the rest of this season out, I think.

CMAs were on last week and diverted viewership, per Dalton's twitter, so that was actually expected. Ratings were still down from two weeks ago though.

The "everyone who doesn't join your boycott is a terrible person" thing that's been popping up lately w/ this and other stuff really isn't cool. You can be upset by how things went down and still be willing to watch the show. If you're not a Nielsen family it literally doesn't matter for ratings.

The best moment of the episode tbh was Noura stopping once she won immunity and preventing her team from winning the reward.

I'd probably do the same thing just because your caught up in the excitement of winning, but it feels like such a Noura thing to do.

Reminded me of Leeroy Jenkins. "DAMNIT NOURA!!"

I also loved Elaine calling Tommy "Big Red".

Karishma and Dean outlasting all their other tribemates who kept doing idiotic blindsides for the sake of blindsides would be perfect karma.

Rewatched the last tribal and the only thing more satisfying than the look of despair on Elizabeth’s face at seeing Aaron on the jury was the even bigger look of despair on Elizabeth’s face when Missy got voted out. So good.

It's so interesting how different communities respond to different characters. Karishma is the meme queen of the season on Reddit. I think she's hilarious.

Last night was pretty satisfying in terms of getting some losers out. Now just need Dan and Elizabeth to peace out too.

you're so focused on winning that I think its an easy mistake to make

Dean will be kicked off. (Dean... could technically be 2nd Goat)

Karishma will be in the finale. #GOAT

they'd be crazy to kick her out.

She's a meme because people are laughing at her.

I love Karishma. Her making it to the end ahead of all of the terrible people would be a wonderful antidote for all of the ugliness.

Dean's idea would be genius if it were real lol

This breakfast segment is hilarious

edit: Aw, Noura trying to make up for her error last time.

It's still super scummy that they allow players to go through their private property as long as they don't steal anything.

That was a great tribal, and nice to see Karishma use the HII correctly after Kellee went home with two.

For a second there, I thought she was going to give that idol to Elizabeth. Thank god she did the right thing.

Liked that shocked look on stupid Dan's face.

I've seen most seasons but I can't remember a season with so many goats, they really knocked the strong players out of the game and it's getting boring

The fire making bullshit at F4 is contributing to this. Because you can't gamble on axing a threat at F4 a la MvGX, people are taking them out ASAP. You saw this in DvG too.
Who could have foreseen that in trying to protect big players, people would just accelerate their timelines for taking them out.

Hype as hell! Also this reminds me that while I stopped watching current Survivor, I never got around to watching Season 4 of Australian Survivor.
