Remember Billy from last season? Well, it seems from what we are shown on the show that Yau-man is nothing like Billy. He's just using his mind and his knowledge to get himself further. He seems to be very knowledgeable and if he can form alliances, he can go far.

So far I think he's just so cute! It's lucky for him that he ended up on the losing team. They need him there, big time.

Maybe Yau-man is a bigger threat than perceived. I believe he is the only one who even thought about the idol on exile... or at least he is the only one they showed.

I hope his little fake idols wreak havoc! hee heeee! I loved it during the reward challenge, Yau didn't look all that secure when it came time for him to throw -- Mookie, and some others from the other tribe were making fun of him... the BANG -- he hits the target! I know -- editing editing-- but the looks on those other guys faces was priceless!

Go Yau!

I'm having trouble figuring out why Boo said Yau was obviously the weakest when he was the ONLY one on their tribe to hit the target. And the other week he was the ONLY one on his tribe to knock his opponent off that muddy platform. I think he's a lot stronger then he appears.

"There's so many immunity idols running around."

lol, he really is a goofball. I hope he goes much further to final 3. The only one who would believe the fake immunity idol would be Boo. lol

Still annoying I had to take a shower after watching him lust all over that II. And of course he was the only one on his tribe to knock someone off he was fighting a girl

As for the fake II not very smart to use the paint that is there in the camp. DUH!!

I hope it bites him in the rear

I like him. I really like him.

He reminds me of the once-good side of Gollum.

Knows a lot.

Good eye.

Just needs a chance.

Found a Precious.

Willing to share.

Hey, faking it is always worth a try.

It doesn't matter who he was paired against - they were shooting at targets -- he was the only one from his team to hit the target -- period.

I know, with the blow-dart, the spear, and the arrow. Wow. Brains beats brawn any day... until the brawn figure out he's too smart for them and vote him out. I wouldn't mind seeing Yau win this entire thing!
