I didn't think the dive into the icy water was that bad. They were exposed for what . . . thirty seconds? A minute combined? My "go to" mission for danger through ice was BOTS1's endurance battle, where everybody sat on blocks of ice. Remember that? They had to keep their arms raised, and Melissa almost became a Melissicle. From what she posted on her blog, most of the players had bruises on their legs afterward. Even with CT rushing out of the van -- topless!!! -- to pull in Diem, I don't think it was that brutal. Now . . . sticking them overnight on the glacier? That's brutal, even with the accommodations.
Still not buying Mark's declaration of retirement. Even though I don't like him, it would have been nice if he & Robin had won the Dome and the season, since Robin is now 0-for-9 in Challenges. Even Katie won one, and she had the other team lifting her up to celebrate one of her dismal performances. She needs a more fulfilling life. Meanwhile, Mark breaking out his old school bandana was funny, as was the montage . . . though I'll always go back to BOTS2 and him essentially giving Eric Fucking Nies $60,000. I can't forgive him for that shit.
I'm rooting for CT & Diem. I don't think he's been as human as in this season, and she's finally gotten a clue. They can win the big money, go their separate ways, and never come back to the show again. Also, they are kinda sweet together.
ETA for amr: who the heck is Diana Scarwid?
