Scuba Steve- Great minds think alike! I said to my husband the other night.."close your eyes and listen to Jonathan talk. Doesn't he sound like Alan Alda?"!

This guy is one shrewd dude! I can't believe he got crazy "cowboy" and dreadslady to switch their vote. Amazing.

This guy reminds me of Eric (crappy, midget, hot-headed ass from bb6). He obviously knows the game, but he gets angry too easily when things aren't going his way. boo-hoo-hoo Please let him be gone soon.

And on TV, Eric wasn't as bad as he was on the live feeds.... I wish survivor and the amazing race would put up taped feeds that would play from the previous tribal council up until the next tribal council and replay that about twice on the website.

Will we get a garry hogeboom rerun this season with this guy. Will he not mention that hes rich and if he does will people vote him off thinking he dosnt need the money? There are some other actors on this show you think someone would recognize him? I respect his gameplay so far, but he is a little bit too crude for my taste. I like Yuls approach. I think though Yul will be jonathans wing man and jonathan will get all the drama away from Yul.

While dealing with flicka might get annyone annoyed I thought Jonathan was a bit arrogant in his anitiol conversation with her.

I do find it intresting that given the industry that he works for that he has drama around himself. He seems to have a great attention span but and is able to stay calm when talking to some people.

I dont know im on the fence with this guy. Hopefully hell prove me wrong in the coming weeks.
