It couldn't have happened any better! Cocky, lazy jerk is gone. Its rare that you see a group make a smart decision, especially when the group is women. How many times have we watched from home and seen the women talk about how they should stick together, girl power, numbers game and all that and then they cave at the last minute? Not this time!!!

What Rejuv said, yeah.

Plus it looked as if a few guys saw the opportunity to oust one big alpha male and took it.

I guess JP was handed the machete he asked for...

Everyone seems to think that big muscle guys are great for challenges. It is true to an extent, but J.P.'s team lost two in a row, so muscle isnt everything in this game. The women saw that they had a chance to secure power for themselves. Evicting this slacker was probably a good mood. Only time will tell.

Being a large, muscled guy beyond a certain point can be a disadvantage as it takes more energy to do everything and I think they feel more affected by the lower calorie intake.

J.P. Calderon, Survivor: Cook Islands

On last week's Survivor: Cook Islands (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET on CBS), J.P. Calderon became the third straight member of the original Latino group to be snuffed out at tribal council. Some of his tribe mates said he was lazy, others found him too bossy, and some just pegged him as a threat, so they all banded together and voted him off, all the while letting him think they were going after Stephannie, the sacrificial lamb. TVGuide.com caught up with J.P.
