Finally, all the remaining Survivor contestants are on the same tribe. In essence the four remaining members of Kalabaw joined up with the still intact tribe Tandang. Immediately players began to scramble to have the merge be to their best advantage.
All new Survivor contestants are dead set against a former contestant winning this game. That puts a huge target on Jonathan and Michael. Since the tribe has figured out that Jonathan has a HII, they decide very early on to vote for him at the tribal council. The plan is to divide the votes between RJ and Jonathan. If Jonathan uses the HII, then RJ will be voted off. If he doesn’t, then it would Jonathan voted off.
Kind of up in the air about whose side they are on is Jeff and Carter. They realize that if they team up with the 4 from Kalabaw they will have a solid six. Jeff isn’t too sure about this because he doesn’t like the idea of playing with past Survivors over new contestants. Carter just sits there with his mouth hanging open most of the time!
The Immunity Challenge comes down to pure strength. Each member of the tribe must hold up a bucket that contains 25% of their body weight. There will be one female and one male winner. Denise wins for the women handily. The final two on the men’s side are Jeff and Carter. Jeff tells Carter that he will owe him one if he drops and vice versa. Carter agrees and says that he really wants Immunity, so Jeff drops. Since all the tribe is after either RJ or Jonathan, the main goal was not to have either of those win Immunity.
At Tribal Council, Abi-Maria is still carrying on about how RJ betrayed her. No one, but us knows that it was really Pete setting up RJ. I can’t wait to see Abi-Maria and Pete get ousted from this game. I do not like those two.
The vote comes down to three getting votes…Pete, RJ and Jonathan. Jonathan intelligently uses his HII and so his votes don’t count. RJ is voted off the tribe. I suppose this setup served a purpose because now Jonathan doesn’t have a HII anymore and he’s left out there dangling. I don’t really understand why they chose RJ as the one who would go home if Jonathan used the HII. I would think Skupin would have been a good choice?
That’s it for this week. Unfortunately, but actually really fortunate for me! I won’t be around next Thursday. We are taking a vacation! Hopefully BBBlogger will show up here to update you. Have a great week and I’ll talk to you soon…Bloggergal
