Yep, it happened. Before any challenge…just about right outta the gate. Drop those buffs and put on the brand spankin’ new black ones. Let the Festivities begin.
Well..first, let’s get up to date. Courtney and JR can’t stand each other. We know now James has both authentic hidden Immunity Idols. On the back of each is the message IDing it as an idol. James knocks loose the first one at Zhan Hu tribe (having already been given the one from the Zei Long tribe site prior to the switcheroo). It doesn’t have the ‘writing’ on it. He gets the other one down. The writing is there.
Jamie and Erik find the tossed unauthenticated one on the ground and of course go thru James’ stuff to see if there might be another one. We are left to wonder if they know the difference. This happens when James and PG are off together on the beach.
Now, to the Merge. The Survivors are treated to ceremonies, food, etc. JP warns them before they go that the ‘game does not stop’. Of course, we, the audience, knows what this means…as do some of the survivors.
Long story short. We get to see dancers, acrobatics and lots of color and flair.
It is a challenge based on observations of the festivities. Frosti figures he’s screwed since he says his memory is lousy. It gets down to Frosti and Jamie with the question as to what the female dancers were wearing on their feet. Frosti states no fair since he wasn’t looking at their feet. We’re getting to see Frosti’s personality come out finally. Cool!
Jamie’s answer details silk stockings with bells… Frosti’s response: Nothing. In that the dancers were bare footed.
Frosti is this season’s first Individual Immunity.
JR threatens Todd that if he (JR) is booted out, he will hold Todd personally responsible…rather than Amanda since JR considers Todd the mastermind with the influence. And JR states he will make damn sure Todd does not win since JR believes he has such grand influence on others (the upcoming jury members). Todd just agrees and rolls his eyes.
James was so cool. He and others get the picture. They know the game and feel Courtney is a loose cannon… not thinking about the game…. just her disgust with JR.
Of course Zhan Hu tribe members want the war between Courtney and JR to take roots and continue. Hoping to get JR voted out.
Jamie figures she will carry the ‘idol’ to tribal and use it in case she has the most votes against her.
A mishmash of arguments. JR trying to demonstrate why Courtney will be no threat in challenges and will make it to the finals. PG, etc. telling JR’s faults. And, I loved it when James says JR needs to just quit talking and get his head in the game.
Jamie asks Jeff P. a combo question/statement that she wants to present what she thinks is the hidden Immunity Idol. Jeff looks at it (giving no clue to what authenticates it) and states it is not an idol. Jeff tosses it in the fire.
Jamie and JP receive the votes and it’s bye bye Jamie.
