Survivor: Australian Outback: Episode Seven

After the excitement of watching a man's skin peeling off his hands, last night's episode had a lot to live up to. Would that it had been worthy. Have you noticed that none of these people have anything interesting to say? Any dialogue we hear is all about the game, and so far, it seems like Colby is the only one who knows what the hell is going on. Has Amber even said more than ten words? I've seen Sly Stallone movies with more dialogue.
Please, Mark Burnett, no more footage of these idiots hiking through the bush, okay? Then there was the pole-standing challenge, which is about as visually exciting as a PBS fundraising drive. I have to give props to Keith for standing up there for ten hours, although now that I think about it, I'll bet they had breaks, like five minutes every hour. Ten hours straight? What if they had to whizz?
Now that Jeff is history, the scramble begins. The vote went along old tribal lines this time, but I get the feeling that this was a one-time only event. Future tribal councils will involve cross-tribal alliances, because otherwise the next four shows will be boring and predictable, and CBS doesn't want that.
