I heard an interview with Phil on the radio a few weeks ago and he said that people will come up to him and say things like "I can speak seven languages, I would be great on that show." Phil said their response to that is they don't want that kind of person on the show. They want people who will struggle on the show, who maybe have never been outside of the country, or have a difficult time with changing their routine. He said that is what makes the show interesting.

So, how do you think our little Barnstable High student is doing on the show? I'm such a pathetic texter, but I've been doing my part in voting for her.

Bummed?? Why?? 'Cause Cirie is gone? She's another of those people that I never understood why she was so popular.

Personally, I'm soooooooo glad it wasn't Tom!! I just don't understand why it wasn't Candice. No one seems to care for her.

I loved Cirie, but it was definitely the smart move to make. They might win a couple of challenges by keeping Tom/Colby, and those two don't have a dangerous social game.

Of course, I don't know if anyone is really getting that with Cirie gone, JT is the biggest social threat they have.

Well, I would say that the new immunity idol threw a wrench into everything. Sounds like Russell is sure to go next time the Villians lose. And I think it changed the thinking on the Heroes side too. It was funny how that came to be that everyone got to see the clue. Funny, ha ha, not strange.

I am SO glad they got rid of Cirie. She was already playing the individual game, voting out the strong players - when the heroes can't win a challenge. You need to keep the strong dudes around, sweetheart, or the heroes team is going to dwindle to nothing before the merge. So I was glad they sent her packing. Not to mention that to a middle-aged woman, Tom and Colby are both WAY better eye candy than she is.

I was surprised how clues to the Idol were revealed. Russell does seem to be in a little bit of trouble now. Can't wait until next week!

Russell is so smart and shifty. He's definitely not going anywhere for a while. But it doesn't look good for Tom next week. He seems to be the next going home with that target on his back. There are just too many people against him and he doesn't have the numbers.

About finding the clue to the hidden immunity idol - does that mean the Heroes had it in their coffee from the previous week and only just managed to find it? Dur.....

I thought it was interesting that the Villains all decided that the immunity idol wasn't "fair" and all promised to punish any individual who pursued it. Does that mean that Russell is the only true villain? While in the so-called Heroes camp, they all selfishly rushed out to find the idol for themselves, immediately.

Amen UM! Cirie was definitely a threat---and this time she got called out and caught. DANG. She was one of my picks.

JT is definitely the biggest social threat.

Oh man, the one detective not knowing how to do a grid search!

I know I'm late on this one, but...
I thought the detectives were off to a good start when the one started drawing a little map in the dirt. He read the clues and tried to figure out where he would end up after each part. Forget walking it out, just go straight to the end. How many letterboxers haven't tried that trick a time or two? Too bad it didn't work.

Anybody else doing their warmup stretches for Dancing With the Stars? I can't wait for another season of DWTS! As usual, there are a few folks I've never heard of, and some whose careers have, shall we say, cooled significantly. Then there's Kate Gosselin. I hope she stinks so she gets sent packing soon - I think she was a terrible choice for the cast. Looking forward to seeing another Olympic gold medalist on the dance floor - Evan Lysacek should be interesting to watch. Everybody rhumba!

I didn't like her at first, but got used to her by the end.

But, we always had to laugh when she'd ask a really long question of one of the stars, and then cut the person off as he or she was trying to answer. That seemed to be her specialty.

I thought she did even better tonight with House of the Rising Sun. She's really coming into her own. She'll be getting my votes for you ;-) Tonight is really important. Only one more week until the top 10. Must get her on tour! 1-866-436-5702 for March 9.

Can I just say that I am hoping Evan on DWTS will ease my post-Olympics depression. I do think, though, that ice skaters might have an unfair advantage since they are used to doing set routines.
