I read through your comments and I have to agree this is REALLY a boring Survivor season. I think it has to do with all the contestants seeming to get along and mostly just enjoying their days on the beach! I guess as the season gets further along, the contestants will realize what’s at stake and start playing for real.
Last night, we saw another challenge for reward. Was this a weird thing or what? The teams had to move a ball through mud to their side of the playing field to score points and thus win the challenge. However, from the very first, it became obvious (probably to the producers as well) that this wasn’t going to happen. The teams were so evenly matched that the ball just sat there in the middle of the mud with the contestants at standoffs. I was very impressed with Facts of Life Lisa’s strength display in her match-up with Denise. So the next thing you know the two teams are in negotiations. Tandang agrees to give the Reward to Kalabaw in exchange for all their rice. Huh? Tandang…have you lost your mind? You think a letter from home and some treats are more important than your rice? So that’s what goes down.
Kalabaw enjoys its reward (I guess). Jonathan swears that he can catch enough fish to keep the tribe’s tummies full. Of course, next scene shows Jonathan returning to shore with a little tiny bit of fish! LOL Editing? Probably…
The Immunity Challenge is relatively simple. One member of each tribe launches a ball. The other tribe members have nets. You get one point for each catch. Five points win the challenge. Malcolm outshines everyone in this challenge. He seems to be the one to beat this season. He helps Kalabaw win its second Immunity Challenge since the merge. Tandang once again must go to Tribal Council and eliminate a player. There is some talk (although I think forced) of them blindsiding Jonathan, but it’s pretty obvious that Katie won’t survive the night. She barely survived last week, so this week is pretty much a no brainer. Tandang is down to four players who are all in an alliance.
The tease of next week’s show mentions a “shake-up”. I assume that means the teams will once again change. I hope that Denise and Malcolm end up back on the same tribe. I love those two and am rooting for them! Have a great week all. Bloggergal
