There’s no one quite like Christian Hubicki. The robotics scientist and professor from Tallahassee, Florida started off as one of the more – shall we say – “unique” members of the David tribe. He quickly became a rare Survivor sensation: the sort of player that is considered one of the most well-liked contestants ever to play the game. We’re talking Rupert Boneham or Joe Anglim-level love. And that’s just from the perspective of mass popularity. He is also is one of the smartest, most intellectual players we’ve ever seen. He’s in the category with John Cochran or Stephen Fishbach.
For those mourning the loss of Christian from the game, don’t fret…he will be back on Survivor at some point. Mark my words. Because it wasn’t just that he was the ideal strategic player, or that he was just funny (and he was down-right hilarious), but he also perfectly encapsulated the spirit of the quintessential David, the under-dog worth rooting for. And yes, I used the big 14-letter-word “quintessential” to impress Christian himself, should he be reading this.

There may be no crying in baseball, but when it comes to Survivor, let those tears loose, child. This week we said goodbye to Gabby. I think it’s fair to say has worn her emotions on her sleeve. And even though her platonic relationship with Christian has been one of the main themes of this season, this week she finally sought to make a big move against him in an attempt to bolster her “Survivor resume.” It back-fired, in glorious fashion.

It was a double-dose of Survivor this week. That means not one but two players were sent to jury. Alec’s exit was fairly straight-forward. In contrast, Carl became the first blindsided member of the beloved David alliance. This set the stage for the rest of the season (just two episodes left before the two-hour Finale on Dec. 19th!).

As we all still manage to digest the turkey, pumpkin pie and leftovers from this past week, we’re also trying to digest the crazy-epic blindside we witnessed on Thanksgiving Eve. Of course, I’m talking about last Wednesday’s episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath. This season, by all accounts, has been amazing. It begs many of us to ask the question the non-Survivor-watchers. What the heck are you doing if not watching Survivor this season? Do you not like great television? Or in the words of Russell Crowe: Are you not entertained???
It was a Thanksgiving treat that came early, maybe for all but Dan Rengering, the Goliath who seemed to be in the absolute best position…until he wasn’t. It was one for the ages and included a second-straight “Hall of Fame” caliber Tribal Council the likes of which we have – literally – never seen. And if you missed any of the action?

Talk about a knock-out blow! Pro-wrestler and self-appointed “Mayor of SlamTown” John Hennigan saw his torch snuffed at the culmination of this season’s best episode of Survivor yet. The best (and worst) part was, he – nor the audience – ever saw it coming.

Survivor is tough enough as it is, without people referring to you as “weak.” It’s an assumption based on appearance, withouth knowing anything at all about Lyrsa Torres. As we saw on this week’s episode, Lyrsa is anything but weak, but in the game of Survivor, it’s often the strong ones that are sent home first.

It definitely was the first “#blindside” of the season, if you’re not counting that wave that blindsided Pat Cusack last week. Two episodes in, and we finally got to Tribal Council, but for Jessica Peet – the youngest contestant this season at age 19 – fire didn’t represent life, it represented a quick exit from the game just six days in.
