"Big Ball, Big Mouth, Big Trouble: Days 15"
- October 20 |
Day 15: Calming those who calm the sick
Mosquitoes. They're small.
They're annoying... and they can kill you. No. They can
seriously kill you... if they don't annoy you to death. Case in
point: the Nakum tribe, who try to work on their chores when all
of a sudden... ambush. Cindy swears that she has never seen so
many of these blasted things in her life. And all because of a
little rainstorm. Stephenie whines, "Why do they have to bite
through my shirt?" Because they know where the money is,
The conditions have deteriorated
so bad that Margaret starts to pinch a hissy fit. "The six of us
get along really well and Margaret is just kind of fading out,"
says Rafe. Rebuttal from the nurse? "I used to be much higher on
the food chain than I am now, and I am sure Judd is waiting to
get me out."
Sure. Blame the doorman. Judd
notes that Margaret is miserable, and can't wait to vote her
out. "She brings the entire tribe down with her attitude. She is
sore that the old alliance is not coming back."
Oh well. Nothing you can do...
or is there?
R-CHALLENGE: Rollout (for a barbecue and
lunch... and immunity?!; Lydia sits out)
The tribesmen will split into
pairs for this one. The object: push a giant "boulder" across a
playing field. Get it across the end zone, it's worth a point.
First tribe to score three wins.
The good news: the winners get a
grill, burgers & dogs, root beer & beer beer.
The bad news... BOTH tribes are
going to Tribal Council TONIGHT.
The even better news: the
winning tribe will take part in an individual immunity
challenge. More on that later, but for now, let's rock.
Round 1: Amy/Danni vs.
Stephenie/Cindy. Winners: Amy/Danni. Yaxha lead, 1-0.
Round 2: Bobby Jon/Brandon vs.
Jamie/Judd. Winners: Jamie/Judd. Tie game, 1-1. Jamie and Bobby
Jon make like barking dogs at each other... Literally.
Round 3: Gary/Amy vs.
Stephenie/Judd. Winners: Steph/Judd. Nakum leads, 2-1. And we
have an injury on the field, as Amy's ankle is pinned under the
ball as she hobbles off the field to check in with Jeff.
Because, you know, he's trained in this sort of thing... only he
isn't. Amy'll try again.
Round 4: Amy/Danni vs.
Cindy/Margaret. Winner: Amy/Danni. Tie game!
The final round: Bobby Jon/Brian
vs. Jamie/Judd. Winner: Jamie/Judd! Nakum wins, 3-2!
So we get lunch, but it's not
The members of the Nakum must
collect three bags of letters and unscramble two words...
"Ancient Ruins". First person to do that wins immunity.
Judd can't untie his letters to
save his life (no pun intended), but he does get a look at
Rafe's letters as he raced with Margaret. He thought out loud
"ancient ruins" and boom. Rafe wins immunity and Judd learns a
lifelone lesson... Silence is golden.
Back at camp: Snaps!
As the Nakum celebrate their
victory over food and drink, Stephenie is pleased that their
losing streak is over. Judd wonders what happened between Jamie
and Bobby Jon. Steph lays it out for us: "He always does that."
Jamie's view: Southern people are crazy. My view: I've lived in
the South for 13 years and I can say.... yeah.
Meanwhile, the sweet smell of
victory is tainted by reality breaking wins. The Nakum is going
to Tribal Council tonight. Judd & Jamie agree to take out
Margaret, who, according to Jamie, isn't even fighting to stay.
"I am the big gun. I feel safe. I can do whatever I want."
Meanwhile, Cindy's beer is gone.
Dramma ensues. Someone drank one too many. That would, of
course, be Judd. Margaret notes that Judd always makes a big
deal out of nothing when he makes a mistake. Cue big deal.
"Whoever drank it is going home tonight." He hopes that said
person enjoyed it. "I drank the extra beer. So what? I deserved
But will his words come to
Night 15: Nakum Tribal
Steph loved the feast, as she
traded Judd one of her beers for a hamburger. "I would trade a
hamburger for a beer any time." Jamie, meanwhile, says that his
actions at the challenge (namely barking at Bobby Jon's face)
were out of hating loss. Margaret saw that Judd & Jamie are out
of control with their emotions. Judd begs to differ. He doesn't
think that he's a bad sport, but he's giving his all. He tells
Margaret to shut up because she's never played a sport in her
life. Margaret retaliated that Judd always steamrolls everyone
and barks about it. Cindy isn't happy with such negativity.
Chaos between Judd and everyone else ensues. Meanwhile, Jeff
asks if Rafe is intimidated by the big ass doorman. "Judd's been
nothing but nice to me." Margaret seems to think that Judd has
problems with his recall. Meanwhile, Judd thinks Margaret is
just mad because her alliance is done. Once the tribe takes up
sides, Cindy says that once the problem is done, there will be
less negativity in camp. You all know what you have to do.
And sure enough, it's time to do
Judd: MARGARET. "You leave this
jungle, you can't leave soon enough. Get out now!"
Margaret: JUDD. "You're a bully, you're self-righteous, you're
rude, you're profane. People like you don't deserve a million
And now, the rest of the
That does it. MARGARET, the
tribe has spoken. But are we done here? Not by a longshot, as
Rafe will now sit over on the Jury side for...
Night 15: Yaxha Tribal
After listening into the other
tribe's council, Rafe had an important decision to make. He must
now pass on his immunity to someone else IN SECRET. Whoever Rafe
had chosen would have his or her votes nullified. Rafe casts his
secret decision and then returns to camp.
The end result of the voting saw
Brian swept, 5-1. Will the Immunity envelope change that? Nope.
Rafe gave his immunity to Gary, and BOTH tribes have spoken in
favor of a Brian ouster.
And the kicker is? He didn't
even see it coming.
