Do you all agree with me that Survivor is starting to get good? I was away last week, but I did sit and watch the show. I can’t decide if Lisa just keeps playing the innocent card and is really a shark or whether she’s genuine. You just never know on Survivor!
This week’s reward challenge pitted Denise, Malcolm, Penner and Carter against Artis, Skupin, Lisa and Pete. Penner really gave his team an advantage when he dug out all four bags that were buried in the mud so that his teammates didn’t have to search. They received reward which included bringing gifts to the village children and sharing a huge feast with the village. It was really a nice touch to involve the locals and have the Survivors give instead of always just taking. Hopefully this will become a regular part of the game.
Did you ever notice that we rarely see how teams are picked? Evidently for the reward challenge one player was picked to be in charge and then they chose the other players on their team. Actually, I’m assuming this is what went down because Jeff mentioned that Abi-Maria was “not picked to compete”. Let’s face it Penner’s team was stacked. Denise is an amazing competitor and my newest idol! I wish I could be in that condition <sigh>.
The Individual Immunity challenge involved balancing balls on a paddle and getting them to sit in slots. The first one to get all six of their balls in the slots on their paddle wins. Skupin kicked butt on this challenge and was quickly in the lead. His only competition was Pete, but I think Pete started feeling the pressure and before you know it his balls fell. <s> Skupin won Individual Immunity.
Of course, this scared the crap out of Penner. He doesn’t have a HII anymore and he knows it could be him going to jury this week. He starts working on Skupin and Lisa to get them to switch over to his side. Lisa is wishy-washy because she doesn’t want to go against her word and her alliance. However, Skupin doesn’t have a problem switching sides. The decision is to blindside Artis and by the look on his face when the votes were read…that they did! Penner, Denise, Malcolm, Carter and Skupin vote to oust Artis. Abi-Maria and Pete are sitting ducks. I personally think they should have blindsided Abi-Maria to flush out or eliminate the HII. I know that everyone wants to keep her because they see her as absolutely no competition in the Finals. She really is a PIA, isn’t she?
That’s it gang! Unfortunately, I won’t be around next Wednesday again. I’m going to Las Vegas for a family reunion for Thanksgiving. I’ll ask BBBlogger to fill in. Hopefully, he will have time.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving! xxoo Bloggergal
