  1. I considered voting for David, but I’m not using your idol this early, on someone else, is a good idea. Adam on the other hand stayed back while most of the tribe went on a wild goat chase and found himself an idol, that got him my vote.

  2. Adam needs to win this!!! David had the big move, but it wasn’t a good move. Honestly no Gen X-ers deserve player of the week this week. Adam or Mikaela are the only deserving ones!

  3. Michaela proved her worth through the challenges and had another positive episode. Adam found the idol, and I was happy for him, but he’s still in a sticky position. David played his idol likely too early….Michaela POTW.

  4. David may have made a great move we don’t know how the tribe swap will go but he now has an ally in Jessica and I bet once she is gone he will get the legacy advantage

  5. Adam or Michaela. David should’ve kept his idol for himself since all he needed was to make it another round or three to a swap (if Jessica left, Cece was next). Now, if he’s down in the numbers and doesn’t turn on his tribe like he told Taylor he would, he’s screwed. He doesn’t know about the Legacy Advantage, so that doesn’t factor in. Adam had an epic idol find and Michaela was a total beast in both challenges. Both are great choices.

  6. At least we can probably all agree this Top 3 is correct. (And credit to Lucy in 4th place, even though it was a flop.) I think Michaela did some great work, but since her tribe didn’t even win and that’s all there was, not enough to qualify. I love Adam more, and was so happy for him. But I have to go with David. He made the right move. He eliminated a wildcard in Lucy and whether or not Jessica will be around long enough to make moves with him post-swap or post-merge, she’s enough of an ally to the other 3 and will be loyal. And like Chris said, I do believe that the Legacy Advantage will now be bequeathed to David (I once thought maybe Ken) as opposed to the other 3. That will be her gift for helping her last longer. (Or maybe she’ll last longer anyway, but most signs point to that being unlikely.) What a season. Can’t wait to see who’s with whom after the swap!
