    I will not debate his thoughts on that as I disagree.

    But even if its true, he has an idol and it guarantees him a spot in the final 5. I would much rather be sitting at the final 5 next to Heather, Erick and 2 people of my choosing instead of still battling Ricard. It seems he has a good relationship with Ericka and could have used that to make a move now.

    I dont know, Ricard could win immunity this next time and then you are in a tough spot.

    Yeah I hear ya, it is easy to say all this on the outside but like Erika stated..it is totally different when you are in the game.

    I thought waiting a week for Ricard was the right move. It keeps Heather Erica and Xander stronger than Danny and Deshawn.

    If they took out Ricard and kept Liana it becomes 3vs3.

    Ricard winning immunity would throw a wrinkle into getting him out though.

    Xander going from the biggest target since day 1 to not even being in the conversation plus getting rid of the one player that has been gunning for you is a big flex for him

    also he’s a lock for top 4 since he still has his idol that he has to play by next week

    and he’s latching on to Erika and Heather because who the hell would vote for them if they made it to the finale

    people may call him dumb but not so sure about that

    I feel like the obvious play is to vote out Heather here. She's the least likely to beat Ricard in the final 5 immunity challenge.

    I stand by all of my statements after last week.

    They were idiots to not take out Ricard when they had the chance. Him winning immunity again proves that and he’s likely to win again.

    Ericka and Heather are fucking morons, they stand no chance against anyone that’s left in the game. In addition they have done nothing to try and take out Ricard or flush Xanders idol.

    They have done nothing to set themselves up.

    Agree about Ricard, but disagree about Ericka. Heather is just along for the ride. Everyone knows shes not winning and wants to bring her to the final tribal. Ericka has made some moves behind the scene. Other players have said she's a threat.

    No one is beating Ricard in a final tribal, but if they get him out of the game, I could see Ericka winning. Xander's only big move was playing his extra vote, and Im not sure the players even realized he did. He doesnt really leverage his idol at all. I can see that path for her
    If they find a way to get rid of Ricard, I could see any of them besides Heather winning

    Xander leveraged his idol a lot, he played Liana with it and also has strategically not played it several times in the face of him or an ally being voted out.

    Thinking more on it, I think Erika has better chance to win that I thought last night. But I still think that both Ricard or Xander would win over her.

    I think people will respect Ricards gameplay and he will gets votes for it, I am not so sure people will feel the same about Xander. Xander has a guaranted path to the final 4 with his idol, so it comes down to Deshawn, Erika and Ricard in the final immunity.

    Erika was a deserving winner. Im shocked Xander didnt get any votes. He played a great game but made a horrendous read on Erika and how the jury felt about her

    The season started off horribly but was great down the stretch. Overall pretty good season

    The women this season were pretty anti-man so I could have definitely seen them not vote for Xander. Especially Eevie, Liana, and Tiffany.

    She got lucky when no one liked her enough to invite her to the merge feast

    I agree with this with the caveat of Shan always wanting to target her. But the editing didn’t ever give a reason why.

    Disagree on Shan. She didn’t really due to much in challenges and allowed for herself to have a huge target socially by being so dominant. But agree on Ricard and Xander, and your other two.

    Ricard is clear #1 but Shan was too aggressive and overplayed her hand, DeShawn was too gossipy and never a physical threat. DeShawn was carried so far because he wasnt a threat.

    Best players were Ricard, then a group of Xander Danny and Erika

    This season was downright awful tbqh

    Ricard would be my vote for any future Survivor All Star seasons after this

    Xander was just too dumb and naive and Danny had no social game whatsoever

    also the producers forced too many bullshit advantages and pushed the diversity angle too much

    Danny voted for Deshawn

    I think Erica got a weird edit. Shan and others would always say we have to get Erika out she’s too smart….there was clearly portions we were not shown that formed thier opinions.


    Playing devil's advocate w Xander - all season I was wondering why they didnt even try to flush his idol. Perhaps they never viewed him as a threat for getting jury votes. They were happy to let him sit on the idol all season. That seems to be the case.

    It's easy to forget how much the editing shapes the viewers' perception. There could probably be an alternate cut that makes Erika out to be the obvious winner

    No way they were having a white male win this season

    You can shame me for saying it out loud and such but it was clear as day from the way everyone viewed Xander

    If Xander wasnt an idiot and brought Heather to the final, and Deshawn beat Erika in fire making, you really think he's losing?

    Everyone votes for Xander except Danny and Liana, only because she hates Xander. Mayyyybe Erika votes for Heather, but if not Xander. Shan might even talk Liana into Xander too

    the three tribe members that wanted him out since day 1 were on the jury (Tiff, Eevie, Liana)

    Ricard felt betrayed by Xander not giving him the idol but keeping Erika

    He wasn’t gonna have Danny’s vote as long as Deshawn was on there

    Shan was prob gonna vote with Liana

    the deck was stacked
