If last night’s show didn’t turn you on to Lex as the man in the best position to win it all (at the very least, among the Mogos), you just aren’t thinking. Sure, Jerribitch is annoying, but she’s incredibly expendable, too, especially with the Merge looming large. And Lex knew this was his best chance to pull a swerve that he would be able to get away with, because the only person left to exact revenge is Ethan, who still wears the target of Former Champion. Jerribitch, who KNOWS she is a target, has no choice but to trust Lex or be sent packing, and with Kathy snuggling up with the Chapera gang, the only people bothering to think on Shii-Ann’s behalf are Lex and Jerribitch, because Colby thought he had a sufficient majority already. And the Merge looks very likely to happen next week, so Lex’s gambit was timed perfectly. Just brilliant. Colby in an individual competition situation was an extremely dangerous man.

So, let’s look at Chapera. Big, big win for them, obviously, for emotional reasons as much as anything…it always helps to be the tribe who won the last Immunity going into the Merge. (I am assuming the Merge IS happening next week, even though with twelve remaining that would be somewhat early. The preview for next week’s show damn well looked like it was gonna, anyhow, with Probst calling for ambassador’s from each tribe to meet and such.) And taking Kathy The Human Swing Vote along with them on the reward meant that either Jerribitch or Colby was going home, a win-win either way. And Chapera seems to be a pretty unified team, once Tom stops a) drinking and b) dancing. Boston Rob pretty much runs things over here, and since he finally forms the beast with two backs with Amber next week, and as far as we know has something going on (though not in the same way, I hope) with Rupert, he has a voting bloc that can pretty much only be killed if the remaining Mogos gang up and nail him as a unit NEXT week. If a Mogo goes next week, and tribe lines stay solid (and Kathy integrates into Chapera), the rest of them will simply be plucked off one at a time.

But I think (I HOPE) Lex is smart enough not to let that happen. We’ll know next week.

  • Go Lex! If he gets voted out, there is almost no reason to keep watching, because the only other one of them left that I like at all is Ethan. And he is a goner.

    But then again, I thought Ethan was a goner weeks ago, so you never know. Anyway, though, I think Lex should win it this time if he doesn’t go psycho.
