After last week’s Tribal, Abi-Maria realizes that her days on Survivor are numbered. Everyone is expecting her to be the next voted off, so of course that’s not what happens, right?
This week featured the Survivor auction. Each contestant receives $500 to use to bid on items that Jeff presents. Denise uses her whole $500 on a complete breakfast. Malcolm gets a plate of donuts and iced coffee. Skupin buys a plate of cheese and wine. Penner wins a covered item…fried chicken and fries. Carter wins another covered item. This one is a baked potato with all the fixings, but he is given the option to trade it for rice and beans for the whole tribe. Carter unselfishly trades. Lisa wins a covered dish which turns out to be a gigantic sandwich and soda. Carter once again wins and this time gets veal shanks. The whole tribe gets to share, but only for sixty seconds. This is truly a caveman/woman moment. Abi Maria has been sitting quietly throughout this whole ordeal. When Jeff asks her why she isn’t bidding, she says that since she will be voted off soon, she will get to eat then. This girl has such a ‘tude, but doesn’t seem to realize it. Well, she bids her whole $500 when Jeff says the item up for auction is an “advantage” in the game. Those donuts aren’t looking so good now are they, Malcolm?
When she gets time alone, Abi realizes that she has received a move directly to the finals in the next Immunity Challenge. She tries to put one over on the tribe by saying she has another Hidden Immunity Idol, but I’m not sure if the others believe her or not. The Immunity Challenge involves untying knots and climbing through an obstacle course. The finals come down to Carter, Penner and Abi. Did anyone else notice that the knots in the third round were all small–like in perfect for a girls fingers? Abi wins the Immunity Challenge sending the tribe into a tailspin because now they must vote out one of the “final six”.
Abi has Carter and Penner voting against Denise. Malcolm and Denise are planning on voting for Penner. Up for grabs are the twosome of Lisa and Skupin. Lisa is still playing the “I can play this game with morals” card and tells Penner that since she made an agreement with Malcolm and Denise to go to the end that she is voting Penner off. This leaves Skupin who seems to be up in the air about which way he should vote. Personally, I think he should have voted off Denise because she is such a strong, strong player. However, he sticks to his final four deal and votes off Penner. Penner puts on a bit of show as he exits.
This leaves us with Abi hanging out there with no true alliances. Malcolm and Denise are as solid as ever and still in an alliance with Skupin and Lisa who are also a tight-twosome. Carter has to realize that he’s in a bit of trouble, especially since he voted against Denise.
