…and how many of you HONESTLY thought they would go all that way to the Brazilian highlands just to be eliminated in 5 minutes?
I knew they would not be cast off right away….but I find it interesting that they got to go straight to the camps. Kind of like Survivor’s version of a “Go To Jail” card in Monopoly. You know…”Go Directly To Jail. Do not Pass Go, Do not hike for hours to camp through Brazil.” or something like that. Very interesting twist to kick off the season. Looks like they tried to see if the game about getting along with people would be effected by such a twist.
The tribe, Jalapao, made the “old lady” an early target. Sandy was a little excited (ok…upset) about being sterotypically pointed out as the weakest link and “voted out”. At the imunity challenge she showed that she may be a little older but she is a strong woman and a huge competitor.
The other tribe, Timbira, targeted the skinny weak looking blonde girl. It probably did not help that she was feeling sick but Sierra was the first of her tribe to be voted out. She looked upset but to me a little relived. However, she just got a quick ride to camp. I thought she was SMART to build the shelter at camp. She is a keeper and there is more there than it seems. I look forward to her getting better as the season goes on.
The immunity challenge was a run far, get wood, get wet, get back, build steps and solve a puzzle to raise your flag. Another variation of an old theme. Timbira won in a come back.
Tribal….it looked like the tribe would vote the same way making the first Survivor voted out Sandy the bus driver…but then there was Carolina.
Carolina is hot. She has huge breasts and well has an even bigger mouth. She opened it, annoyed everyone and she is now history. (sorry fellas) She was the weakest link and may not have caused the loss but she did not help and as Jeff Probst always lets people know….you have to learn to get along. She though Sandy was a goner for sure….but instead it was bye bye sweet Carolina!
So what did you think? Was it worth watching? Are you excited to watch the rest of the season? Who looks strong? Who looks like they will go home shortly!
Glad your here…..I will post weekly….maybe 2 times….depending on how much time I can find.
