With the season finale of Survivor: Nicaragua just hours away, let’s kick off the countdown with the Final Faces of Jane:

Remember what we said about last week being creepy?
We’re just wanted to throw up a quick post in preparation for Sunday’s finale, so here are some very quick thoughts, with maybe some more substantial analysis to come tomorrow.
First off, Benry proved to us, once and for all, that he’s a douche. Completely against our better judgement, we’ve been developing an affinity for Benry over the last few weeks, mostly because he was aligned with our current favorite Fabio, as well as with Dan, who’s won us over despite being physically incapacitated. Also, compared to the sorry group of players left in stock – Sash, Jane, Holly, Chase – Benry looked great by comparison. The lesser of several evils. However, by so easily agreeing to sell out Fabio for his own advancement (in a move that would have only gotten him one, maybe two Tribal Councils further), Benry proved who he really is. A club promoter. Yes, he was honest about that from the start, so shame on us for even giving him the benefit of the doubt. But, to reiterate: DOUCHE.
New Surivor in less than an hour!
Boy, it’s really getting rough out there in Nicaragua, ain’t it? Gone are the halcyon days of last week when everyone basically agreed to vote out Alina. No, there are fractures in this group, and as Jeff astutely notes after Tribal Council, they are clearly a “Libertad” divided.
After Marty called out Jane at Tribal Council last week (well, not so much called her out as pointed out how much of a threat she is), it was clear that the battle lines were drawn, with Jane now obsessed with not just beating Marty, but humiliating him (for example, she calls him “Farty” now. GOTCHA, MARTY!). Jane, relax.

With the new episode just hours away, very quick thoughts on last week’s merge-centric episode of Survivor: Nicaragua:
- We’re becoming very concerned that as the show continues we’re going to end up with the least likable players, as well as some of the weakest. There turned out to be some dunderheads in All-Stars, but at least there were always some Survivors that we enjoyed watching. If this season ends up being Brenda, Sash, NaOnka, Purple Kelly, we’re not sure how entertaining that’s going to be.
- Speaking of NaOnka and terrible people, she threw a hissy fit and stole half of the supplies. Like they wouldn’t notice. And before that she did this:
‘Survivor Nicaragua’ Unless You’re Bill Parcells, How Could You Think You’re a Better Coach Than Jimmy Johnson? AKA The Final Faces of Jimmy Johnson; Plus: Player by Player Odds!
Well, Survivor: Nicaragua just became a little tougher to watch every week. While we were initially skeptical of the inclusion of former NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson’s in the cast, we were quickly won over by his charm and gung-ho attitude. We still think it was a questionable decision by the producers, big picture-wise, but it enabled us to enjoy his positivity, humor and variety of faces every week. That is, until the Espada tribe made the curious (aka egregious, outrageous) decision to cut Coach Johnson, engineered by Jimmy T and Marty’s testosterone-driven need to prove that they can be a better leader (than a Super Bowl winning NFL head coach). Why Jimmy T felt threatened by Jimmy Johnson, or why he desired to usurp the leadership role when it makes more sense to let Jimmy J maintain the mantle and thus the pressure, is beyond us. And why Marty feels compelled to “accelerate” the game is even more baffling. Now they’ve put themselves both in the cross-hairs, while they could have let the bullseye rest on Coach Johnson. It was way to early for a power grab, and completely unnecessary, and they’ll likely realize this sooner rather than later. At least vote out the dude who can’t even walk (Danny).
But, for now, the damage is done and Jimmy J is gone. In his honor, our (perhaps) final Faces of Jimmy Johnson:
