Creatures & Horrible Setbacks: Days 7-8" - March 3
DAY 7: CAT FIGHT!!!
We start the day with rain. as the Koror seek selter
under their shower... oh, I'm sorry. that's an actual
living space. Tom takes issue with it. "We're getting
rained on at night, and we need a better shelter." So
Coby of the speedo knows the path... and makes it a
journey. Coby is disappointed that in order to keep the
advantage and the numbers up, you have to retain people
who are incredibly annoying. The classic Survivor
conundrum. You have nine strong, but you can't get rid
of any of them unless you lose immunity.
Caryn barks out orders
while Katie just scoffs. Or is it Katie ordering while
Caryn scoffs? They look alike. Katie is driving Caryn
nuts. She has something to say about everything and the
behavior is driving her insane. One gets the feeling
Caryn isn't happy unless she is complaining about
something. Irritated, Caryn went at Katie with her
grievances. She is talking to Katie alone about the
annoyance because she doesn't want to drag other people
into it. Katie laughs. Don't tell me what to do any
more. Get off me! Caryn stomps off in a huff.
Katie observed, "She's
crazy. She completely lost it."
Caryn decides that Katie won't talk. Oh well. Her loss.
R-CHALLENGE: On Any Given Day 7... (for a
swing kit with fabric; )
See Jeff. See Jeff
release life ring from ocean floor. See tribemates swim
to be the first to ring the life ring. It's no holds
barred, as you can do anything short of damaging and
intentional physical contact (i.e. Unnecessary
roughness) to get the ring to your station. First tribe
to three wins reward.
Not much to say as the
Ulong go one, two, three to win the reward. A pathetic
showing by all. Jeff gets #1 over Tom. Stephenie
wrestles #2 against Jen, and Bobby Jon & Angie teamed to
give Gregg & Janu all sorts of high hell for the third
Back at camp...
So how desperate are we
for food? Well, we hear that venomous snakes are full of
protein. Let's go look for those! Ian, Gregg, and Tom go
on said snake hunt, as they a) pin the snake, and b) lop
off its head. If they fail, according to Gregg...
"Cardiac arrest... Coma... Death."
Ian lops off the head of
snake #1, which Katie calls cute, if only because Ian
did it so apologetically. "I did feel bad," said the
Tom is glad to have
hooked up with like-minded knuckleheads with a sense of
Three snakes later, you
would think that they'd be ready for dinner... You WOULD
think that, wouldn't you? Instead, the carcasses are
hung by the sea in hopes of getting a shark. Even trade?
Not today. Quoth Tom: "If I saw a shark out at Jones
Beach on Long Island, we would be running out of the
water. We see a shark here, everybody's running into the
water with sticks in their hand." He knew the survival
part was going to be hard but he never believed it would
be this real. Back home they would run out of the water
if anyone spied a shark.
The shark isn't that
happy to see you either. Oh well. Today's defeat is only
tomorrow's task... "We're gonna get a shark."
DAY 8: MORE MAIL!
The weight of the weak
Lay on the Shoulders of the strong
Today's Challenge will
Where in the tribe you belong
"Can I go any further?"
You may have reasonable doubt
But let your tribe down today
Tonight your torch could go out!
I-CHALLENGE: Walk This Way... (Janu & Jenn
The tribe's members are tied together with a
rope. Each must carry a 20 pound pack on their back. The key is to try and catch
the other team on the course. A player can opt out at any time and give their
weight to a tribe mate. The first tribe to catch the other wins Immunity.
Immediately, Jeff of Ulong drops his sack after
an injury the night prior. From what I hear, a coconut. Then Caryn drops hers
and Willard follows her, leaving Ian, Gregg, Coby, Katie, Willard, and Tommy.
Katie and Coby drop out, leaving the rest of the four carrying 140 pounds of
dead weight. Oh, did we mention that the tide was coming in?
In the end, Tom ends up with 60 pounds on his
back. Koror makes up ground a little at a time and eventually Ian touches
Ibrehem. Game over, and Koror is immune for a third straight round.
As for Ulong, an injury of any kind is instant
death, as Jeff expects to be snuffed today.
