Could We Have A "Survivor" Winner?

OK, "Survivor" fans -- and I know you're out there -- let's talk about last night's show and UC student Michelle Yi, 23, the 2002 Turpin High School grad. We finally saw that she's definitely helping control the game in her Moto tribe. If you missed it, she was shown sneaking off in the morning with Earl, the influential tribe leader, while most of the others slept in.

I had assumed that she had clout, but this was a revelation two months into the show from Earl: "Michelle and I had our usualy morning meeting because I'm usually the first person up, and then she gets up pretty soon after. We always get up and she briefs me on what's happening, because she is my little spy."

Then Michelle explained that she and Earl, an advertising guy from Santa Monica, want to get rid of Stacy Kimball, 27, a web producer from Boulder, Colo.

This is setting something up, but I'm not quite sure. The promo for next week show everyone going to Exile Island -- could it be for a merge? What's your guess?

How far could Michelle go? Final 4? Final 2? Win it all? She's played a solid game so far, and CBS has kept her under the radar (maybe too much under the radar for a finalist, unless they're holding her emphasis back for future episodes down the line?). She's athletic and strong in challenges. She's smart. What do you think? How far will she go?
