SurvivorCI (Cook Islands)

Survivor, in this early stage, is a bit tricky when it comes to inspiring commentary. It's the nature of the show. It takes a while to get to know the contestants, and for relationships/conflicts/strategies to develop. Put simply, it's hard to care about, much less root for people you have yet to understand, and it's too early in the game to know who's Who, who's What and who's I Don't Know.

Aitutaki (Hispanic-American Tribe)
Rarotonga (Caucasian-American Tribe)
Manihiki (African-American Tribe)
Puka Puka (Asian-American Tribe)


- I do feel bad for Manihiki. Not because they lost, but because in addition to playing Survivor, they've taken on the additional burden of representing their race. Too much pressure if you ask me.

- I note the tribes with 3 men and 2 women came in first and second, and the tribes with 3 women and 2 men came in third and fourth. Of the two tribes with 3 men, 2 women, Puka Puka's men seem stronger as a whole. So, I pick Puka Puka to make it to the merge with the most members...»
