So, I surprised my husband with tickets for the spring training baseball game between the Phillies and the Yankees in Clearwater Florida. I was looking forward to some fun in the sun. Unfortunately, the sun was somewhere lost behind the rain clouds. We still had a good trip. We were lucky. The rain stopped and we were able to see the whole game. On the whole, the rain didn’t ruin the trip. However, as soon as I arrived home, I got sick. I’ve been in bed for the last three days. I watched Survivor, but I couldn’t get myself to type. That brings me to today, Saturday. Sorry this is so late, but I hope I hear from you!
The major drama at the Fan’s camp is Shamar’s anger. I don’t even know how to comment about this. I feel for this veteran that has probably seen and done a lot in his life. I’m confused as to what he’s doing on Survivor. Is Survivor taking advantage of him for TV ratings? Is he pretending to be a veteran with PTSD because if he’s really having issues, then seriously, he shouldn’t be on Survivor. That whole “I’m gonna quit because I’m not in a happy place” was all BS. Hey, it did take up a few minutes of air time though, didn’t it? I look forward to seeing him together with Philip “the Specialist” Sheppard. That should be interesting.
I’m always amused by the HII hunt. You would think that as soon as all contestants are placed in camp that the very first thing they would do is run off and look for the HII. Well, that doesn’t seem to happen. I use the word “seem” because what the heck do we know what’s really going on? After two weeks, we get a scene where Malcolm and Corinne are off hunting the HII and low and behold they find it. This puts Malcolm in a bit of a conundrum because he has to share this with Corinne. The other tribe members sense a closeness forming between the two and plan to target Corinne.
The Immunity Challenge once again involves swimming, diving, hauling and tossing. Fans and Favorites are neck and neck throughout the whole challenge. The toss is a bit of talent mixed with a lot of luck. Brandon pulls it off for the Favorites and they win Immunity for the second time in a row. Included with Immunity are comfort items–chairs, pillows, a blanket and a tarp.
The Fans are concerned about Reynold having the HII, so they decide to split the votes. The girls will vote for Hope and the guys will vote for Eddie. I’m not following their logic. Do they really think that Reynold will use the HII on someone other than himself? So anyway, at this point the vote will be tied three ways–Shamar, Hope and Eddie. Shamar hints to Hope that this is going to happen. If she had any smarts, she would realize what he was saying and vote off Eddie and save herself, but alas, she doesn’t get the hint. Instead, she goes back to camp and tells on Shamar. What an ass. For a second, it looks like Julia may convince Laura to jump ship and vote off Shamar, but it doesn’t happen. The vote comes back tied three ways. Everyone but the three re-vote and Hope is the next to have her torch extinguished. It’s really hard to feel sorry for her when she just sat around and let it happen.
Some quick comments:
The two “cool” guys on the Fans tribe actually converse about their gal getting voted off referring to it as “revenge of the nerds”. Really?
Sherri talks about how she is the owner of SEVERAL franchises and deals with a lot of employees under the age of 24. Am I correct that she used the word “brat”? I say every one of her franchise workers should call in sick on the same day.
Survivor continues to try to make Brandon out as a bad guy. He comments about his tribe going after him saying, “I’ll pee in the rice.” “I’ll pee in the beans.” “I’ll burn the shelter to the ground.” Oohh, those are some scary comments, but sorry, still not buying it Brandon.
It is interesting to see how words are misinterpreted. Hope says that Shamar told her she was 99% going, but what he really said was “It’s NOT 99%” You hear what you want to hear I guess. Since we don’t hear every single word, there is no way to tell if what the others are saying Shamar said is true.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Stay tuned…Bloggergal
