Would you believe, I forgot to write the blog this morning? Yes, I was busy and all, but I think that Survivor just didn’t “do” it for me last night. However, it was GREAT to see the other tribe win a competition wasn’t it? It’s about time!
Brad Culpepper arrives at Redemption Island and tries to make nice-nice with John and Candice. Candice, especially does not like him, but she is thrilled to see him on RI. The competition wasn’t really weighed towards men…at least I didn’t think so. The competitors had to take apart a box of planks and then make a bridge with those same planks. Next they had to take the bridge apart and complete a puzzle with those same planks. The returning players root “big time” for Brad. What’s that about? John finishes first, but Brad eeks out the win against Candice. Candice’s buff is a goner. I thought she had spunk, oh well. John once again has a clue to give out and he once again gives it to Monica. She once again throws it in the fire. This CANNOT be making Survivor producers happy. Teehee.
Side note: Once again this whole show goes by with NO ONE looking for the HII. WTH?
We see footage of what the players are enduring while on the show. I liked this part because I think we sometimes forget that these players are out in the wild with very little comfort. The bug bites and Katie’s toes were…ouch! You wonder how they are able to compete at all.
The Immunity Challenge is pretty straightforward. Slide down a giant slide, pick up a tube, throw it on a post. You are in competition with one player from the other tribe. First tribe with five points wins. It really is mostly luck and good aim. The newbies finally pull off a win. They have a choice between immediate gratification with steaks, etc. or fishing supplies. They take the steaks. I’m not sure if they are able to fish without equipment so I don’t know if this is a good choice. They don’t seem to be complaining about not eating or at least we aren’t seeing that.
You would think that Rupert’s wife Laura B, as the outsider will be the easy vote at Tribal, but that’s not what happens. The alliance of Aras, Monica, Tyson, Tina and Gervase will make this call. Okay, so maybe Aras made the call. He wants to vote Laura M. off. His theory is that he thinks Laura M will beat Brad at RI and with Brad gone, Monica will be vulnerable and easily controlled. Monica is smart enough to realize that this could do her husband in, but what choice does she have really? At Tribal, the camera takes in Kat’s face a number of times. She rolls her eyes repeatedly when Laura B talks. She hides her face when Laura M is voted off. Does she realize she is on the outside looking in?
Coming attractions for next week show Jeff telling us that everything is about to change. Yay! I love change! LOL See you then, stay tuned…Bloggergal
