As the Espada tribe returned from last weeks Tribal Council, discussions about Jimmy T’s eviction were the main topic. Jane and Holly were surprised he was voted out! C’mon ladies, didn’t you realize know one discussed keeping him with y’all. Marty’s running the show as supreme Emperor. He controls with his magic wisdom of game play. WHAT, wisdom from a man who openly displayed the HII! In the past, if you showed everyone you had the idol, you were immediately put at the head of the list for eviction at the next TC. At the least, Dan’s deadbeat butt should have been sent home. Jimmy T should have been kept for his strength, and then told to shut his trap and just play the game.
Ok, daylight brings a fresh day. The tribes meet Jeff for todays challenge but there is a surprise in the waiting. Standing and waiting to start the game, Jeff says “Drop your buffs”. They drop their colors and must draw aw colored rocks. After drawing and exposing the rocks they picked, Holly and Brenda will be temporary captains and have to pick players for the new teams.
Holly is to pick 4 players from the La Flor tribe and Brenda is to pick 3 people from Espada to make up the new teams. Holly chooses, Alina, Benry, Chase and NaOnka to go with Tyrone, Dan and Yve to become the new Espada tribe. Brenda takes Jane, Jill and Marty to go along with Fabio, Kelly B, Kelly Purple and Sash to complete the new La Flor tribe.
The MOP is also gone from the game as Jeff collects it from the Espada tribe.
Jeff asks if anyone has a comment on the new tribes and Marty says he is glad to be part of a winning tribe and he feels good about who is on his team.
Proceeding into the challenge, is now revealed that it’s a reward challenge. Two hens and a rooster are up for grabs. I wonder if they’ll lose them like last season?
The challenge is a giant “Plinko” game. The tribes will throw balls up a ramp and 2 players from the other team must catch them before they drop off the board. The challenge begins and the balls are bouncing crazily down the Plinko side with players jumping around waiting to catch them.
Espada takes the early lead as La Flor drops the first ball. The game is to three points. La Flor makes a comeback as Espada drops the next two; however there is no need to fear, Marty’s here. Mr. Macho just manages to drop the next two and Espada wins the challenge and the chickens. What was that comment about “I’m on the winning tribe”? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, better watch your back Marty.
Back at camp, Jane lets everyone in La Flor to keep an eye on Marty and Jill because they are as tight as ticks! Mr. Macho then announces he has an immunity idol. What, WHAT, he did what?? The man is a fool and is looked at as a complete idiot (which he is). Brenda makes the comment that he’s an arrogant fool.
Later that night in the La Flor camp in the cold, windy, rainy weather, NaOnka Donk is crying because she is cold. What’s wrong girl, all that big and bad homey talk that you been spouting has suddenly disappeared. And you’re ready to go home to mama, my, my, my!!!
The next day at the Immunity Challenge ……. YESSSS. Look at the neat game, I loved it!
Let’s see, we’ll strap three people this big wheel, we’ll have three people spin the wheel. As the people on the wheel get spun around they get dunked into a tub of water where they must take a mouthful of water and when they get to the top must spit it into a funnel, and the water fills a tube with a ball in it. After filling the tube the ball is released and two members must use the ball to break five plates to win the game.
The game starts evenly but suddenly the Espada tribe realizes they need to go slow so their players can hit the funnel with more of the water that gets spit out. With that plan they fill the tube and get the ball first. They break the first plate just as La Flor fills their tube and begin throwing at their plates. Even with that advantage, Espada falls under the “kiss of death spell” and end up losing another immunity challenge.
Back at camp, Espada is deflated about another loss, but they are also HUNGRY! Tyrone says they need t save the chickens so they will get eggs to eat. Hunger wins out and the rest of the tribe decides to cook and eat one. While cooking the chicken Tyrone makes the comment to “be aware” of your neighbor when you eat. When it’s cooked, everyone begins to chow down except Tyrone who sits back while hey eat. Finally he gets up and gets some chicken. Chase proceeds to comment that Tyrone took the biggest piece of chicken and the editing department shows cleaning his chicken down to the bone!
At TC comments are made that Tyrone was bossy when they how tribe had been operating and everyone thought he was laying down the law! Therefore, bossy and overeating gets you evicted. Oh well, lets see what happens next week!
Looks like everyone thinks NaOnka Donk will quit soon. Let’s take a poll and see who thinks she goes before or after the merge of the tribes.
Will Kelly B. take off her leg and give N.D. a beat down?
Will Marty be blind sided and not use the HII?
What’s the new twist going to be?
