I am so sorry to let my gang down last week and not get a blog done. Would you believe I still haven’t found last week’s episode in full on the Internet? I started watching Survivor last week and received a phone call that I couldn’t ignore, so technically I “watched” Survivor but I didn’t hear a word of it. I did see “baby” Russell throw something in frustration when his tribe lost AGAIN. It reminded me of when my kids were little and they’d strike out in baseball and get all puffy mad to hide their feelings of failure. Oh well…bye, bye Russell. Maybe you should try Amazing Race next time?
To be honest, it is very difficult to blog this season of Survivor because there really isn’t much to say! Denise and Malcolm were the only two members of their tribe left so they were split up and put on the other two tribes. Denise ended up on Kalabaw and Malcolm is on Tandang.
Next was a reward challenge which involved one player from each tribe facing off and attempting to knock an idol of a pedestal. Reward was fattening sweets but also coffee and tea. Caffeine has to be a plus when being on Survivor. Tandang won the challenge and I couldn’t help but wonder if this is the way it would be for awhile now that Malcolm is on a new tribe. The man is a fierce competitor.
Dana couldn’t survive Survivor. She became very ill with dehydration, stomach pains, etc. The medic said that she was physically able to continue in the competition, but she opted out. I suppose it’s disappointing to realize that you don’t have what it takes to be a Survivor, but we all aren’t equal in physical and mental strength and stamina. Her tribe felt bad for her, but they are also upset about losing a player.
The Immunity Challenge involved racing through an obstacle course and eventually solving a puzzle. Since Kalabaw is down a player, Tandang had to sit out one of theirs. Once again Abi Maria does not compete in a challenge. Jeff asked her how many challenges she has competed in and she admits only two. Since Abi Maria showed up at the Big Brother rap party wearing a knee brace, it’s obvious that she’s hurt and won’t be much help in competitions anyway.
Kalabaw’s Katie has a difficult time on the obstacle course and slows her team down. They seem to eventually catch up, but Tandang pulls out the win. Kalabaw now must head to Tribal and lose another player. At first glance, it seems obvious that Katie should go since she was the reason they lost the competition anyway. Denise is now included in the male alliance bringing their numbers up to 4. The four, okay actually only the guys decide between Dawson and Katie. Denise has no choice but to follow their lead. In fact, Denise’s only chance is to hope she survives until the merge because those guys will turn on her quickly. Dawson is the one that knows that Jeff was a professional baseball player. From the tape edit, we see Dawson bringing up conversation about professional baseball just to see if Jeff squirms. This could have been her downfall because Jeff wants her out of there to keep his secret safe. Once again, I have to say…it’s all in the editing. Nonetheless, Dawson is voted off. She is very surprised as well she should be. Katie smirks which annoyed me to no end. I wonder why Dawson doesn’t turn around while leaving the area and yell back to Jeff that she knows he was a pro baseball player? Maybe, she isn’t allowed to? I sure would have.
So that’s it for this week. Have a happy, healthy, safe week. Bloggergal
