Really, it was the entire final 7 teams (since Bob & Joyce were duds - such nice people with a compelling story, but not good TV). Remember I rewatched TAR5 earlier this year.

Marshall and Lance were, well, pigs, but that is precisely what made them interesting. They also got into an epic fight with...
Mirna was such a bitch that you couldn't help but despise everything she did, allowing for her eventual comeuppance to be satisfying. Charla wasn't great, but by comparison she was at least tolerable.
Kami & Karli started out a bit pretentious but became likable after that. Two highly competitive, fun-loving girls that had gems like the flirting for cash in Dubai.
The Bowling Moms. THE BOWLING MOMS. Do I need to say any more?
Brandon and Nicole were fake Christians, sure, lying like crazy and then going God this, God that, but that's precisely what made them such compelling television.
Colin and Christie were explosive and were the single best thing for the season. The amount of arguments they got into with other teams, cab drivers, and each other was great, and it made their TAR31 return long, LONG overdue.
Chip and Kim were awesome. Just plain awesome, rootable, likable people.

The only issue I have with the season is there being no limit to Roadblocks. The cast was amazing, and this season had IT ALL. Wonderful locations, airport drama, memorable teams galore (Alison & Donny's OTTN5 exit was great, too), and a highly competitive Race that anyone could've won. It's a masterpiece of reality television for a reason.

Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!

So far I have rewatched 1-6, 22, 25, 27, 29, 30, and I'm counting 31 since it's so recent. Among those I have 8 dark greens, 1 green, two purples, and an orange. Unfortunately I know there are some stinkers coming up and very few seasons that I remember very fondly left (I kinda blew the load early by watching the good seasons from the 20s out of order. Oh well).

I kinda hate the notion that devout Christians can't play a game cutthroat. Chip & Kim were Christians too and they played really cutthroat too. It's the same thing with Pearl Islands and people criticizing Lill for lying while wearing her Scouts uniform. It's like, so what?

And before it gets brought up, yes, there is a difference between Christians/Boy Scouts doing the same lying/backstabbing as everyone else and a children's therapist bullying defenseless people and telling them that they are faking their anxiety.

There's a massive difference between Chip & Kim and Brandon & Nicole. Chip & Kim didn't bring their religion into their game. Brandon & Nicole did. My problem is not with Christians playing a cutthroat game - it's with their hypocrisy of talking frequently about how good of Christians they are.

Remember how Dan Gheesling didn't wear his cross whenever he was going to do something duplicitous? He didn't want to bring his religion into that, and it got jurors to like him more. Even Jerry, who called him "Judas."

wait you didn't see BB10

fix that

How do you not play an idol when you only have two chances and everyone is suspecting you the second you get back from literally Idol Island????

I don't think the women wanted him around either. They easily could've booted Tom if they wanted to keep Vince, and they didn't. Going to IotI was the death knell for him.

I feel like it was genuinely a "let's make sure everyone is on the same page" situation. No one was really gonna lose sleep if Vince got voted out, unfortunately.

Yeah, this was my thought, too. He spent a whole fucking day away from camp, of course they all talked about what he was doing and whether or not he got an idol. The fact that it was an overnight was quite telling that it was more than the lie Elizabeth and Kellee told.

He should have played it, and we'd be rid of Karishma. He only had two rounds to do so, and now he looks like as much of a jackass as Chris Noble, who had the same thing happen to him... only Chris wasn't away from camp for as long, so Vince was dumber. Nobody knew about Chris having an idol. Everybody knew Vince had one. Also, Chelsea's screwed, if that confessional about her looking at where things went wrong is any indication. Le ugh.

I think the hope here was for a unification of the girls and guys, in case there was a swap on Day 9 like I personally was expecting since Vince didn't draw a name. Could have easily been a 5-5-6-1 split. But there's no swap, and I couldn't be happier. Let's hope there isn't one until 14, and there's no merge until 12 or 11 (that wont' be the case though).

She is frustrating to watch. "I'm different" - well focus on your similarities. "I'm the victim here!" - that was so weird. Maybe your tribe just didn't know how bad the bleeding was? Multiple previous castaways have stated that their entire casts (except for Reem) would've run to check on her. And then bombing the puzzle. And then her backing farther up against the wall by not offering Vince a suggestion at someone else to target. And then the fucking whispering. She's nailing a lot of my pet peeves quickly, and is probably my least favorite on Lairo at this point.

YOU get taste.

Karishma has frustrating qualities, particularly for a lawyer, but shes still more interesting than any of the guys, or Elizabeth.

tbh you were the one I thought would grill me about not liking Karishma

And just because I don't like somebody doesn't mean I can't find them entertaining. Karishma has potential for that, but... I don't like the things she offered in this episode. I just don't.

I mean, I was getting frustrated by her in the same way I got frustrated by Natalie Cole by the time she got booted in DvG. Still entertaining, but teetering on that line of annoyance.

Karishma is fine, especially since Lairo is so boring otherwise. I don't get why Elaine dropped off the face of the Earth after the first episode when she's their most entertaining member.

This is one reason I watch it as soon as I can.

My Google News feed has spoiled things for me, including Australian Survivor winners, so yeah.

I haven't had any issues with the CBS video player for a while, but in years past it's been downright atrocious, and it sounds like it's back to being awful. Le sigh.

If you'd like another way... PM me.

Yeah the past year or so is when it went downhill. It was fine before. I did get it to play eventually though.

It's too bad I got spoiled, otherwise I would have thought Tom was going home in those finale seconds before voting. Heck, I actually did think I had been thrown a red herring.
