Let me first say that I believe Survivor to be a very elaborate gameshow and like all gameshows, winning money is the object of the game. That said,
Brenda's reunion with her father, and what she said to him, had me in a puddle. I echoed Jeff's sentiment when sharing that this was his first
experience becoming emotional during the family-reunion segment. I admired her so much for saying that to her father, and I can't begin to imagine
how proud he must have felt when, despite her obvious affection for her family, she proffered supplemental reunions for 2/3 of the remaining survivors
at the behest of her own needs.
Voting her off was, well, heartbreaking. My heart broke for that sweet girl who, without a moment of hesitation, weighed the numbers of people
reuniting, and upon determining she was in the minority, handed the fruits of her labor to the majority. I sincerely hope that, given time, she heals
from this social experiment. By the same token, I hope she gives Dawn a nervous breakdown with her feedback during the jury questioning session. She
dove trying to locate that moron's teeth! She counselled her through not one, not two, but three freaking fits rivalled only by Chucky himself. I
have it in for Dawn. This is another Survivor first for me. Next episode, she better lose those fake teeth again.
Did any of the players voting her out consider how this move could hurt the way in which they would be perceived at the final tribal? I was in a bit
of shock, and can't recall what the jury looked like after that vote. Brenda was well-liked, and hadn't offended anyone. Her ousting may very well
unite the jury against all but Eddie. They better pray that Eddie doesn't get immunity. It will be their deathknell.
