Matt was cocky, and kind of a jerk, but among Survivor jerks, he was pretty likable, all things considered. I mean, I wasn't sad to see him to (although I would have loved it if Colton had been sent off instead), but he was actually pretty reasonable and articulate a lot of the time, given his cockiness. Russell Hantz he was not.
Colton... is getting more distasteful by the episode. He's simply odious, but unfortunately I'm getting the feeling we're in line to see him all season. I mean, who *wouldn't* want to take him to the final tribal council? He's annoyed basically everyone, on both tribes, only a few days in. I don't see him redeeming himself.
At this point, I guess I'm rooting for Kim, Jonas, and Monica. I'm hoping that we've not seen a lot of them because they'll get their due farther on in the season, and not because they'll simply wither away without any storyline implications. I'd bet those chances are better for Kim and Jonas than Monica, though.
