Day 4 and Holly appears to be breaking under the pressure of being isolated in the jungle. The Espada tribe decides to rework their shelter. Jimmy J. seems to leading the group and handing out assignments. Jimmy T. is miffed that he wasn’t given an assignment and starts to head out to go fishing. Not much of a rift in the tribe after evicting Wendy.
A few people are eating snails they had caught and were in a pot. Holly, while watching them decides they’re not edible because of the faces being made while they eat them. For no reason she decides to dump them out because she thinks they aren’t edible. Everyone wonder what’s going on with her. Holly gets mad at Dan and decides to get even with him. She takes his alligator shoes (why he wore those into the jungle is beyond be me) and proceeds to fill them with sand and sink them in the water along the beach. Holly really looks like she is getting ready to give up on the game and quit. She talks to Jimmy J and he convinces her to stick it out awhile longer.
Sash and Naonka are talking about becoming an alliance. They think they have some things in common. Naonka says she doesn’t like Kelly B because of her artificial leg. Naonka can’t find one of her socks which she said were in her shoes and makes an accusation that someone has taken it. After wandering around she steals a pair of Fabio’s socks. After someone tells him what she has done he goes to confront her about it. She starts giving him some mumbo jumbo that he has it out for her. I personally believe she is the biggest “BITCH” in the game this year. However, Fabio does seem to have a few screws loose in his brain. Lots of gossip and rumors start to float about everyone and it seems the Young Guns are showing signs of trouble.
At the Immunity Challenge the game looks interesting. They must crawl thru a mud pit and then dig thru a pile of hay to find a ball. Four members of each tribe must do this until they get four balls to the next member on a mat. After all four balls are found, the next person must unravel a ribbon from the balls before they can be passed on to the next group who must pass them from one to the next person by catching them on a small wake board looking thing. The last person must try to get it into a barrel. The first team with four balls in the barrel wins immunity. The Espada tribe still has the MOP and decides to use it. Naonka sits out for La Flor because they have an extra person. Dan gets to sit out because of the MOP advantage that the Espada tribe gets. It gives them the advantage of 1 ball already in the barrel. This means they only have to use 3 people in the mud pit and only have to get three balls into the barrel.
Both teams get off to a good start and are even for awhile. Holly has trouble finding the third ball and La Flor gets all four of theirs to the mat first. La Flor gets their first ball unwrapped and start passing it when Holly finds the third ball. La Flor gets a big lead by getting two balls in the barrel before Espada can get their second one. Benry then starts having trouble getting the third ball in the barrel. Tyrone is able to catch and pass the La Flor team when his third ball is made. Benry again has trouble with his third ball. Tyrone puts in the fourth ball just after Benry finally puts in his third. Espada wins immunity and reward.
They get their choice of fishing gear or tarp w/rope. They decide to take the fishing gear and head back to camp. La Flor must go to TC and evict their first member.
Back at camp the Espada tribe discovers the clue to their HII. They don’t decipher it correctly and are looking all over the place. A little while later Jill rereads the clue and discovers the last part of the clue means tree mail. She goes to Marty and tells him what she learned. Dan is there and he hears it also. They go to the tree mail site and start looking. Dan and Marty move apart while searching and Jill helps out Marty. They find it without Dan seeing it and decide to share it. The clue was tuff but it didn’t seem to have been buried very deep.
Over at La Flor the wheels seem to be coming of their finely tuned wagon when they start talking about who needs to be evicted. Two sides are working different angles on who to evict and Brenda and Shannon are being mentioned for eviction and it looks like it might be a 5 to 5 vote at TC.
At TC Jeff asks Shannon what is going on. Shannon proceeds to tell all about the divisions forming in the tribe and that Chase is breaking his alliance. Chase admits he had an alliance with Chase and Brenda and was divided on who he was going to vote out. Shannon went way overboard with his comments and started a rift in the tribe which might endanger it further down the line. Jeff remarks that in 21 episodes that it’s the first time that an opening question has opened such a big case of whup ass! After the voting the results are 7 to 3 and Shannon gets evicted.
It seems after the past 3 days that the Espada may becoming together and stronger and the La Flor are starting to self destruct. What do y’all think? Can La Flor recover and mend their mental wounds or will the “The Antique Road Show” get some gumption and start kicking some but. Will the girls in the La Flor tribe look for help to solve the HII clue? The MOP has been transferred to La Flor. Will they use it in the next challenge? Many, many questions are starting to develop they can change things in a hurry.
Can’t wait till next week. Seems Naonka is getting even madder at someone!
