I think you've got to understand that when you in a situation where you are out in a game like Survivor in the middle of nowhere with complete strangers starving, hungry, no contact with the outside world and feeling homesick... it would feel like you've been away two or three times as long. Especailly contestants like Dawn and Sherri who are mothers and have kids it's a big deal. This was probably the best family members epsiode to date, because it had the added emotional torture of giving up the prize and having to watch them all enjoying it from camp. One of the random moments was from Dawn back and camp when she said that she was mad that "I could SPIT!".
Still, only a week before they'll be home??? Anyway, I don't doubt that the emotion was sincere. I just don't get it. And given that it was sincere, how could Dawn be so two-faced as to be distraught at missing her loved ones but eliminate Brenda, who had dived and recovered her teeth when she was even more distraught? I don't mind people playing the game, but the way Brenda assisted Dawn had nothing to do with the game. It was just human kindness. I believed Brenda when she said she could have lasted longer in the challenge. It sounded like an excuse, but on past challenges Brenda was much stronger than Dawn and would have won if she was motivated. What a cold fish Dawn has turned out to be, and Brenda was sucked right in.
