   Very crafty gamesmanship. Not sure Ben will survive the next vote after that trick though.

   I thought the fake idol concept was pretty slick idea too.

Very well played by Ben and one huge mistake by a strong player.

Ben has as much chance for immunity as anyone next time. What a good game this time.

Last night proved 2 rules of survivor. (At least in my play book).
1.  Never tell anyone you have an idol.
2.  Never give up an idol except in rare cases.  (Real rare).  Last night was an example of just throwing one away.
Another rule to remember is that no one playing survivor is your friend.  They are always out for them selves.  You use other players and they use you.  Mutual benefit may occur from time to time, but is always fleeting.
Last night was sure fun.  Lauren left with grace as she was kicking herself for lapse of judgement.
Also showed how homesick and lonely some players are.  Very touching.

Second dumbest move in Survivor History.  And, I had her picked to make the final.  Up to that point, she was a cagey player, then she lost her mind.

Ben is playing the game to win but of course they all are.  He has saved his own skin twice, but who knows what twists lie ahead.

I wouldn't have shown that idol until vote time, then I would have picked the one to be on the jury!

I believe that if Ben makes it to the final he will win, at least he should.

Here are my thoughts on why Ben showed his idol early.  If he waited until the vote was made then he would have looked like the kingmaker and all of them would have disliked him even more.  By playing the idol first he put the monkey of choosing who goes home on the other five.  He already picked Lauren to be on the jury and she may resent that enough to vote for someone rather than Ben if he makes it to the final three.
Ryan looks like a shoe in for the final three because he hasn't played much of a game.
I think this is one of the better seasons.  I appreciate when they leave in a classy manner.

Even though he has made some mistakes, i.e. getting rid of Lauren too early and hanging himself out to dry, he has been a good player.  I would vote for him to win if he gets into the final three, which I believe he won't.

   I agree with Cedarman on Ben's rationale. This way he spreads the animosity around. Honestly if had been me I'd have done same as last week and then knocked off the guy on his left (I forgot his name) who also seemed like a jerk.

   What's the chance Ben can find another hidden immunity idol before the next vote?

I hated to see Ashley go home last night because she has been a great competitor this season. I also agree with Ben's idea of playing the idol early and forcing the others to choose instead. I think it was a epic move and I personally hope he finds a way into the final three. He's really got his work cut out for himself though.
I also agree with Jeff's post in that Chrissy's true colors are starting to show through.

What I don't understand is Mike and his failure to make a big move last night. What part of number 4 or 5 does he not understand?

Right now I would choose Ben first then probably Devon second choice as someone I would want to win.

Down to the final THREE now!

Still pulling for Ben!

He's been the under-dog for so long and for what it's worth, I'd like to see him win it!
