When last we watched, Aras was blindsided and heading towards Redemption Island. After returning to camp, Tina went off on the group about it. Okay, really she went off on Tyson about it. Survivor rule #1…just keep your mouth shut. Go yell at a tree or the producer’s camera, but don’t reveal your feelings to the tribe. Just don’t.
My worst nightmare was the first Immunity Challenge. I don’t/can’t/won’t eat gross things. That’s what they had to do. First was some meal-worms…a LOT of meal worms. I think I heard Jeff say 40. I don’t know. I kept my eyes closed during the whole competition and just did sneak peaks here and there. I do know (my husband told me) that Vytas spit his out and then picked them off the ground to eat them and continue on in the competition. That takes some willpower. The second item was pig intestines. I looked at them. They were just gross looking. The third item was Gervase’s nightmare from his first round on Survivor…grubs…huge, round, fat suckers. Monica Culpepper deserves some props for this competition. She ate and ate and ate and won! Good for you Monica. If it were me, I would have just walked away. Not one little meal worm is ever going to cross my lips.
Monica has Immunity as we head into the first tribal council of the night. This woman is so paranoid that she’s wondering if she would have been sent packing if she didn’t have immunity. Vytas realizes that he is odd man out and lets loose at tribal. I think that would be what I would do. If you are going to get voted off anyway, you might as well have your say, right? Vytas joins his brother on Redemption Island. That means that once again the two will have to face off in a competition for survival.
We move on to the next Immunity Challenge. It involves balancing coins on a shield which is attached to a sword. Concentration is the key to this one. You must become one with the coins. Even though I found Tina’s cheering annoying, Katie manages to pull this one off. A good thing too because she was probably the next one out the door. Well, if it’s not her, then who? Yep, Tina is targeted. Once again, Monica’s unpredictability gets on everyone’s nerves and Tina is almost saved, but nope. Tina joins the brothers on Redemption Island.
Right now things are kinda ho-hum on Survivor. Once we get rid of the dead weight, I suppose the real competition will start. In other words when the core alliance has to face off against each other. In the meanwhile, I guess we have to just stay tuned…Bloggergal
