Last night was family reunion time on Survivor. Each of the remaining six contestants were able to meet up and compete with a member of their family. Malcolm was teamed up with his younger brother. Skupin was teamed up with his oldest son. Abi Maria was teamed with her mother, who by the way hardly spoke a word of English. Lisa was teamed with her younger brother. Carter was teamed up with his mom. Denise was teamed up with her very tall husband. My husband was rolling his eyes when the families were introduced. You would think they hadn’t seen a family member in years instead of just 30+ days. Lisa was totally ridiculous in how she carried on. The only two that I think should have been so emotional was Denise and her husband. Do I think that Survivor makes them play this part up? Yup, I do!
The competition was a bit hard to watch since Abi-Maria’s mother was so out of her element. I’m not crazy about Abi but that was just silly. Of course Malcolm and his young strapping brother won. Prize was to spend the night with your family member at camp. Malcolm was able to pick two other contestants to do the same. Surprisingly, at least to me, Malcolm picked Lisa and Skupin. He says it was his way of thanking them for sticking by him last week at Tribal. I think he was totally unfair to his partner from the start Denise.
This almost backfired big time on Malcolm because Lisa’s brother convinced her to start playing the game like a..well like a gamer. He had her in agreement to blindside Malcolm at tribal. Fortunately for Malcolm, he won Individual Immunity. Teehee. I love Malcolm and am pulling for him. This left the choice of who would be voted off between Abi-Maria and Carter. Carter is the stronger player, but Abi-Maria is a royal pain in the butt. The players decide to play smartly and vote off Carter. Every single one of them knows that taking Abi-Maria to the finals will insure a win.
So, do you think it would have been better to get rid of one of the stronger players like Skupin or Denise instead of Carter? Tell me what you think!
Have a great rest of the week. Bloggergal
