"Jellyfish 'N Chips: Days 13-15" - March 23
Day 13: After a stew...
After Willard leaves, no
one breathes a word about the loss. Instead, we're talking more
about the stew that happened afterwards. It was a
very-much-needed boost of energy according to Ian. "It's just
another day in paradise."
Tom notes that everyone
is full of energy today so they have decided to work on various
projects to save themselves work down the road. So while he and
the others go about their merry way, Katie is... weaving
necklaces. Quoth Coby: "It was craft day at Koror. While
everyone was working, Katie made necklaces. God love her."
And you know that people
are getting a bit too cocky when someone says "I thought
Survivor was going to be harder than this." Enter Katie, who
followed with "I'm sure there are tough times ahead and I'm
ready for them."
Meanwhile, she entertains
the troops with a puppet show. If you thought that Wanda Shirk's
singing was off... Here's Caryn's impersonation of Simon Cowell:
"All Katie does is entertain people. Beyond that, nobody is sure
what her role at camp is."
Later, Angie is mourned
as someone puts on a show about her longing for some Koror Stew.
And then there's Katie again with the "I am Bobby Jon. I love
everyone and look like Jesus Christ."
And while everyone's
laughing, Jenn wants badly another win.
Psyche up for the Crate Mail! With a chip.
Ready, aim, fire!
You'll each get a shot
Make sure it's a good one
You'll be bummed if it's not.
No strength required
A steady hand to compete
See the wonders of these islands
And give your taste buds a treat.
R-CHALLENGE: Boom Sticks (for mai-tais and Pringles with a swim with
jellyfish; Katie, Jenn, Ian, and Janu sit out)
Coby: *rolled eyes* Oh well. This is after hearing that his buddy Angie is
neither hide nor blurred boob in the tribe anymore.
Let's play with automatic weapons! Each tribe is given eight targets and a
.50-caliber combat rifle. First tribe to shoot all of their eight targets wins.
Who goes first? Rock paper scissors SHOOT (heh, no pun intended)! Bobby Jon
gets the honor and takes out the first Ulong tile. James, with all of his gun-totin'
experience... misses every time. Coby ties it. The ties continue (surprisingly,
Jenn either has gun experience or unresolved nanny issues) until James steps up
for the winning run... and no surprise... he misses. That gives Coby the tie. So
now it's up to Steph. Bam! ]
Just when you think it's over... it isn't. Caryn with the tying shot for
Koror... If she gets it, we go to a tiebreaker. If not, then it's all about
Ulong. She... flubs. It's over, and Ulong wins (jelly) fish & chips!
Night 13: Before a stew...
With powerful winds and rain, a typhoon drenches the camp. Many Koror huddle
together and cover themselves in tarps. Ian is sure the shelter will hold up
against Mother Nature's assault. Tom figures the winds must be clocking in at 40
knots per hour.
Day 14: After another stew.
Janu lays in the hammock and cries. She has never felt so alone or vulnerable.
Tom sits down beside her. Tom reassures her. "Hang in there. I feel so far away from my family
too." Janu sobs about how it is such a horrible day. Tom says, "Let today be a bad
day." Janu says/cries, "It is so hard." Tom tells Janu that she is going to make the merge
and be on the jury. If they don't watch out, she might be one of the finalists.
Janu shrugs it off and tells Tom, "I don't have the strength." Tom
rebutes, "I agree. You don't have it today but
you do have it."
Katie weighs in: "Janu is always in a tizzy. I thought I was the
drama queen, apparently not."
Maybe so, but it's the first dramatics from Janu I've seen.
And after all that, MAIL!
THIS FLAG AND BOX BELONG TO
YOUR ENEMY. STOP.
YOUR ENEMY HAS YOUR FLAG AND BOX ALSO. STOP.
YOU MUST SECURE THE FLAG INSIDE THIS BOX USING ONLY THE
ROPE PROVIDED. STOP.
MAKE THIS BOX IMPENETRABLE. STOP.
BRING THE BOX TO THE CHALLENGE. STOP.
I-CHALLENGE: Probst's Box (Caryn,
Coby, Tom and Gregg sit out)
After being instructed to knot
up a box, the tribes bring the boxes to Immunity. That was only
the first part.
Out in the water there are piles of lumber. The tribes must retrieve the lumber
and build fortresses around their crate. They will have 20 minutes to do so. At
the end of that phase, they switch sides and attempt to retrieve their flag from
the crate. First tribe to raise their flag wins.
As Katie and Janu secure their crate with more knots, James stands around
and tries to secure the toga he is wearing. Sitting next to Caryn, Coby provides
the running commentary. How Ulong thinks they are ahead but they are not and how
Koror didn't tie enough knots. Coby: "This is so nerve-wracking."
But in the end, James'
"impenetrable" knot... isn't. Box is open, flag is up, GAME
And for the sixth-straight time,
Ulong is sending someone home! Man... we're beginning to forget
what losing feels like.
