Gilligan's Island, Part 1" - December 21
We started with 14 castaways, each representing one
player from "Gilligan's Island." We then whittled it
down to the final seven stranded castaways. Then a
hurricane hit, and after all the backbiting and smooth
talking, we're down to the final five: Gilligan Chris,
Mary Ann Kate, the Millionaires Glenn & Mindy, and
We begin with Skipper
making a tiki to keep him protected against "bad (^_^)."
Chris believes he made the right decision in voting for
Mindy, because he's always made his own decision. "Why
should I change now?" Meanwhile, Mindy doesn't sleep
well, as Glenn can't stop strategizing. As of now, they
have three options: get Kate to vote off the Skip, get
the Skip to vote off Kate, or get Chris to vote off the
Skip. Either way, the Skip is pretty much toasted. No
matter which way they go, they agree that they have to
cover their own asses. At least that's how Mindy sees
it, as if Glenn goes, then all she has is Kate.
Kate was surprised to
see her doll pulled last night, as she suspects that
Chris is voting like crazy. We later catch her... with
no top on. Glenn reassures her that she is safe so long
as she plays ball with the alliance.
Attention castaways! Time to report to the picnic table
for the next reward challenge!"
"Dead men walking."
Are we going to eat
anything? Yep... a real meal! Their favorite meal! The
catch... Scott brings out the Cuisinart. And if you
remember BB5 earlier this year, you know what's coming.
Each player will have to drink their favorite meals
together. If you finish, you get the solid version
tonight for dinner. The Skip gets surf and turf with
potatoes, Kate gets a burger and fries, Chris gets
tortellini, Mindy gets... something, and Glenn gets
shrimp. After everyone pours their drinks in, we get a
nice smoothie concoction... that looks like crap. You
have to keep that down in five minutes... Good luck.
Chris tries holding his
nose, while Mindy got Glenn's shrimp. Jim wanted to chew
it down and experience it. "It was pretty good."
Everyone's done in the five minutes, so everyone eats.
That night at dinner, we
actually EAT our favorite meals. Glenn wonders out loud
about tomorrow while Jim accidentally eats candle wax.
Woops. TBS... VERY FUNNY. Kate made mention of being a
very good actress, which put Glenn off a little bit. As
much as she cares for these people, Kate has to look out
Glenn & Mindy strategize
some more, thinking that the order is Skip, Chris, and
then one of them. Chris & Kate talk about kicking the
Skip. Chris thinks that Kate needs to start thinking on
her own. Chris convinces her to make her own decision.
And he stops it there. The decision that benefits her
the most, though, would be to break up the Stearnses.
The next morning, it's
time for fishing... minus Chris, as he is sleeping...
per usual. Glenn hopes that Mindy'll take some island
ways back home. Mindy says... no such luck.
Attention castaways! Sometimes keeping your head above
water isn't enough. Please report to the lagoon for your
next safety competition."
What do we have to do in
order to secure final four? It's just your usual
elimination/observation challenge. Scattered through the
lagoon are several items. Scott sends each castaway to
look for an item. There are not enough for everyone, so
whoever comes back empty is out. Last one standing wins
the lifesaver. After the starfish round... Jim is
eliminated. After the treasure chest round... Kate is
eliminated. After the bottle ship round... Glenn is
eliminated. It all comes down to Chris and Mindy. Who'll
come back with a ship's wheel? It's Mindy! So the
Millionaires win... again.
There may be a
possibility that Chris and Jim will vote for Glenn, as
Chris tries to talk some sense into Kate, who realizes
that she is now the swing in tonight's vote. Meanwhile,
Glenn practices his swing. Symbolism?
Glenn makes sure that
Chris gets the facts up front about the alliance. "I
built companies around teams, which makes sense." Chris
understands... he just doesn't agree. Chris is still
talking about voting Glenn off, which would get him far
in the game. Meanwhile, Jim calls Glenn's tactic out.
Heading into Voodoo
Village... Mindy votes for the Skipper. "Your good looks
and charm has gotten you this far. But now it's time to
go back to your boat."
Skip votes for Mr.
Stearns. "There's been some team activity on your part.
I prefer to win this on an individual basis."
Chris votes for Mr.
Stearns, because he's the biggest competition.
Glenn votes for the
Skipper. "It's just your time right now. Sorry, buddy."
Who will Kate vote for. She votes... for the Skipper.
He's eliminated with these words: "Gilligan Chris and
Mary Ann Kate are still growing. They may still be at a
disadvantage with someone that's twice their age and has
been in the business world. That's going to hurt them,
but if they get taken advantage of, maybe they deserve
Foreshadowing? It's the prelude to the rescue...
