I was baffled at first why Sarah would even give it to Cirie in the first place. I was like "No!! What are you doing?!?". I had forgotten

about the non-transferable part, although after hearing it I do remember it being read at the time.

So the assumption now is that Sarah knew exactly what she was doing and purposely played Cirie, I guess. I'm still not 100% sure since editing never gave us a clue that that's what Sarah was planning. It was a potentially brilliant move, although it could have (and still could) backfire on her. Cirie could have (should have) read the fine print and seen that Sarah was (presumably) trying to pull a fast one over on her. I wonder when she actually gave her the paper? Was it just seconds before TC, hoping she wouldn't see the fine print that way?

It could also poison the jury if Sarah now has an enemy in Cirie for having played her like that.

But it does seem like the advantages outweigh the risks, especially since it worked so beautifully. You're right -- it's quite the game cred to dupe one of the great dupers of the game. Made Cirie look like a fool, presumably dropping her in the eyes of the jury and raising Sarah's cred in the process. It made for great (albeit confusing) TV too. Especially after Cirie boasted to the camera just before TC with her "Could I really pull this move off?" line. Hehe.

* That's called thinking outside the box. Sarah is genius. Instead of just using her huge advantage to make a big move, she uses the fine print to

xx * While Sarah has had a good season i think she's given too much credit here.
05/18/17 03:35 PM
xx * No, seems to me you're going out of your way not to give Sarah deserved credit. Wasn't the plan that if Cirie could prove that Sarah was wrong about
05/18/17 05:11 PM
xx * I'm not going out of my way to take credit from Sarah, i gave her credit for having a good season so far and said i was impressed by other things
05/18/17 05:24 PM
xx * No, Cirie decided to use the advantage later, after she had talked to Sarah. I don't recall Sarah ever telling her to use it. NT
05/18/17 05:21 PM
xx * No way could Sarah predict that Cirie didn't know what "non-transferable" means. NT
05/18/17 03:39 PM
xx * There are so many possibilities as to what happened with all that that it's just guesswork until we hear more. I have a hard time buying that
05/18/17 03:48 PM
xx * It seems like Sarah went over the note with Cirie, not mentioning the non-transferable part and then maybe did hand it over at the last minute.
05/18/17 04:01 PM
xx * If Sarah gave it to her moments before Tribal not giving her a chance to read it that does present certain possibilities.
05/18/17 03:59 PM
xx * Yep. It's a shame this happened on what was effectively a half hour episode. They needed to show us a LOT more. I certainly believe that
05/18/17 04:28 PM
xx * That announcement moment i felt like Sarah reacted being surprised Cirie even used the advantage and confused what she was doing and perhaps
05/18/17 04:46 PM
xx * That was just editing to get the viewer in the mindset that Sarah is being betrayed. They led us to that point with all of the Cirie strategic
05/18/17 05:20 PM
xx * On rewatching the scene, I think Sarah was surprised but not upset. Rather she was amused. NT
05/18/17 05:38 PM
xx * Well, if that was the case it's why i dislike having to rely on editing. I'm not entertained by being tricked i want to see what actually happens.
05/18/17 05:29 PM
xx * Sarah may have done a confessional that didn't air just to keep the audience in suspense. NT
05/18/17 04:03 PM
xx * I have a feeling that was not Sarah's plan at all...I believe Sarah at the time she gave the advantage to Cerie forgot it was non transferable. NT
05/18/17 03:15 PM
xx * Sarah was questioning why Cirie was believing in Aubry. Sarah gave Cirie the advantage as a way to prove her loyalty to Cirie. NT

xx * I was baffled at first why Sarah would even give it to Cirie in the first place. I was like "No!! What are you doing?!?". I had forgotten
05/18/17 10:57 AM
xx * I think it's obvious why the editing didn't show Sarah revealing the fine print part. It wouldn't have made for as good of TV if most of us weren't
05/18/17 11:15 AM
xx * I actually think it would have made for better TV to know whether Sarah was actually testing Cirie, or truly didn't know it was non-transferable
05/18/17 04:33 PM
xx * Yes I think you're right NT
05/18/17 03:43 PM
xx * In the episode where Sarah found the advantage she read it all out. We knew weeks ago it could not be stolen and that it was nontransferable. NT
05/18/17 01:15 PM
xx * Yes, I realized it was exposed. And ifyou remembered it, and thought it could play this big of part in the game and knew that Sarah was going to take
05/18/17 01:27 PM
xx * Sarah reading out the full rules seemed important to me but I never expected to see what happened last night. That was beyond crazy. NT
05/18/17 02:14 PM
xx * Sarah has been showing emotion, like when she told Sierra "I love you, like on a real level" right before she stabbed her in the back. NT
05/18/17 12:11 PM
xx * She even told Sierra that she was her "It" girl. No way Sierra cannot vote for her after that. NT
05/18/17 01:17 PM
xx * IMO she burned another bridge there. People don't take kindly to have their emotions played like that NT
05/18/17 03:44 PM
xx * So far everyone but Debbie has mentioned what a great game Sarah is playing when they arrive at Ponderosa. No one has been mad at her which can't be
05/18/17 06:28 PM
xx * But last night IIRC Cirie Aubrey and Michaela realized that Sarah was faking being shocked @ Sierra being voted out. I wonder if Mich will let Sierra
05/18/17 06:33 PM
xx * She didn't let her know in her Ponderosa clip but she could if they start talking game and Sierra tells her about the LA. Didn't Sierra tell someone
05/18/17 06:39 PM
xx * Well Played By Sarah. I Also Wont Forget That Move! Epic! NT
