Survivor: One World Roundtable Predictions Update, Episode 8 – Blown Away!Page 2

Well David, how about it?
My dark rage cannot be soothed until I properly predict a winner again.
To which I just heard William reply:
Or until the Cubs win the pennant.Yikes! We could be in for a long, long wait. Er, hold on, David the Cub-fan seems to have one more thing to add:
Now you have both incurred an extra dose of my rage!Yikes! You’d think predicting the winner six times previously (spoiler-free, I might add) would be enough for our editor. Not to mention winning last season.
It only makes me hungry for more!Don’t be surprised to see me stay out of David’s path for the time being. Anyway, back to the countdown. Jeffrey, Jenn, and William are all tied for second place. In Jeffrey’s case, he gets a point despite thinking Mike would be a pre-jury boot. How do you feel about this Jeffrey?
I'll take any point I can get. Besides, at this point I'm looking ahead to the non-winner finalists everybody selected.
At this point, almost all of us are. William, you were the only one to pick Jonas for the jury, and this week, you got Mike right as well.
I'll take the point, even though it means I'm guaranteed to get at least two more wrong later on. What really pisses me off is that I still haven't gotten one right in my prediction column! I've had dry spells before, but not like this. And the freaking Survivor editors lied again. The exact words in the promo were that this would be "the biggest shocker" of the season and that "a major player is about to get played." Can someone tell me in what universe Mike qualified as a major player? In what way is getting rid of the biggest physical threat a shocker? Yes, he was blindsided, but the editors are supposed to be priming the audience, not the players who did this stuff months ago. I feel cheated!Um, no. Yes William, I realize Colton was your projected winner. But I don’t care how boring the season gets, Hurricane Colton already inflicted enough damage to this season, as far as I’m concerned, and I was never so happy to see someone leave the game. If he lasted much longer, I might’ve been reduced to only reading the recaps just so I wouldn’t have to watch the way he treated people. Do you really think he would’ve gotten any better once he ousted Christina (or Alicia, as he claims was his plan)?
But I digress. Also tied with Jeffrey and William is Jenn, who made all her picks thanks to a randomizer. Don’t laugh: Before Jonas left, she was the only one of us who had all three finalists left.
So who is in first place this week? None other than Stinger, the only writer to have his winner still in the game. If the curse holds, next week we’ll see Troyzan, Stinger’s winner, leave the game. But Troyzan doesn’t appear to be next in the pecking order, and even if he were, he has an idol, so the curse may just take a week off.
Stinger’s rise to the top has been nothing short of phenomenal. Just four weeks into the season, Stinger was 0-4 and in last place. But since then he has reeled off four straight wins.
Incidentally, if the curse holds and all the projected finalists are knocked out, the only ones left at the end will be Chelsea, Tarzan, and Sabrina. They’re the only three left who didn’t have anyone predict them to make the finals. And if that actually happens, will David’s curse serve his purpose, or will someone else benefit? Hmmm… We’ll save that info for later. Meanwhile, it looks like the guys could be in real trouble. We’ll find out for sure Wednesday.
