  1. On one hand, it’s nice to see forward-thinking. On the other hand, the way it’s shown to us, it looks like she’s targeting someone due to some perceived slight, which is rather weird.

  2. I agree. The only thing Sunday did was talk to Bret about voting out Jessica. And even then they needed to get Chris’ permission to do anything. She talked to Jay only to tell him there was nothing she could do.

    What did she do? She doesn’t deserve this vote AT ALL.

    I voted for Adam. He had a lot of negative attention on him the past two episodes and he survived both TCs without even using his idol.

  3. So vote for her to win in a future episode after she does something about it. At this point you are voting for someone who is all talk and no action. She hasn’t done anything.

  4. I could agree with a vote for Jay. People may not like the choices he is making, but at least he is playing the game and making his own decisions.

    Sunday doesn’t do anything but talk to Bret, then Bret talks to Chris. Chris is the only one making decisions for the three of them.

  5. I think that Sunday deserves it. It is clear that she is in some kind of secret alliance with Jay to the point that Jay knew that he didn’t need to play his secret immunity idol. She is also in an alliance with Chris and Bret and realizes that Jessica needs to go sooner than later; as Sunday has the numbers now, but may not later down the road when Jessica comes gunning for her. People think that Sunday is playing an under the radar game, but I see her game play as very smart. An example of this is the vote against Paul. If you watch the extra video clips that Survivor puts out but doesn’t show on the actual episode, you will see the strategy that she talks about in the vote to get Paul out of the game, but Bret and Chris became quick allies with her again. On the other hand, they both became untrusting of Jessica; which may eventually cost Jessica the game.
