Eat the Apple
James has two immunity
idols... the former Zhan Hus were on the block... Denise was pretty much
persona non grata... Peih-Gee was trying to lure some people into her
fold... but Courtney was the one with the necklace at the end of the
day. Jean Robert had an idea, but it turned on him and he was dealt a
Day 25: A narrow escape.
James dodged a bullet, and as a result,
couldn't sleep that night. And if he couldn't sleep... well, neither
would everyone else. But it turns out that Jean-Robert's ouster was
really a lifting experience for everyone involved. Courtney and Peih-Gee
notice that Denise was shooting daggers at them, and that leaving her
out of the loop could force crucial votes against them. Denise had the
opportunity to switch with the Zhan Hus, but she still gets backstabbed.
James tells her to hold it together for now.
Day 26: Well that was a
Cooking fish. James to Peih-Gee: "Yeah, you definitely on the outs." She
wants her fish REALLY REALLY hot. Todd watches and is quick to note that
now that Jean-Robert is gone, Peih-Gee is quick to take his place.
Elsewhere, Frosti and Courtney are flirting with each other, while Todd
is getting worried that he may be swayed by our stick figure princess..
An experience of a
In a truly magical place,
A feast of sights to feed your soul,
And you'll also feed your face.
Again you must divide to
You'd better be on the ball.
If you drum up some enthusiasm,
You might just win it all.
And Todd plays the bongo.
(for an overnight cruise of the Lee River)
Two teams of four play. Using four different
sized drums, you must keep a ball up in the air as you navigate a series
of obstacles. Drop the ball, you have to return to the start or to one
of two checkpoint gates. Bounce the ball into a bin to finish, then race
back to the start. First one to get three balls in win.
Amanda, Erik, Courtney
Back at camp, Peih-Gee gives new meaning to
the phrase "Sore Loser". She calls out James for having the unmitigated
gall to say that she throws a challenge when he couldn't get back to the
mat every dropped ball. James: "That's why y'all lose. You quick to
blame." Peih-Gee says that she's not blaming anyone. Well, sounds to us
that you are. If you ask Peih-Gee, then you may hear that she's pissed
off that she has NEVER won a reward challenge and is taking it out on
James. "I don't have a single ally here. I don't have anybody. And I
can't keep my mouth shut."
Denise doesn't like her attitude at all.
James says that Amanda and Courtney are going to fall in line. "There's
still human nature. It's right there. Just don't eat the damn apple. Be
naked. Be happy. Don't eat the damn apple."
Todd, though, is also freaking out. His
friends are all on boats.
On the Lee River...
"Cheers!" Erik: "It was spectacular." He
sees this as a good chance to develop a relationship with people.
Everyone has one person to talk about: Peih-Gee. Basically her making
poor decision after poor decision.
Courtney loves her Frosti. Frosti loves his
Also on the
river... Erik hits on goats. Dude, just stop. Amanda likes her some
comes, and on the menu: chicken and mashed potatoes. Frosti is worried
that Erik is becoming a threat.
Day 27: "Hey bitches! Welcome home!"
Amanda decides to short-change on the
details. Todd... not so much. He shares what he learned about Peih-Gee.
I-CHALLENGE: Take a Stab at It
Another memory test. This time involving
lists of zodiac symbols being stabbed with knives. Wrong answers
eliminate. Last one standing wins.
IF you are so confident that you will not be
going home tonight, you can opt out of the challenge... and eat burgers,
fries, drink, and all the fixin's.
Who's going to play... and
who's going to eat? Todd, Courtney, Denise and James are all going to
eat. For everyone else... it's game time.
Oh, by the way, the catch, you have until
this challenge ends to fill up.
Round 1: tiger, rabbit, rat, monkey, dog.
Erik is eliminated.
Round 2: rat, ram, dragon, rooster, ram. Amanda is eliminated. Frosti...
is ... right.
snake, rat, rabbit, tiger, rooster, ram. Peih-Gee wins immunity!
Frosti's upset that James, Denise, and
Courtney sat out. He really wanted Peih-Gee gone, and now Erik already
knows that he's going on the block tonight. Erik thinks that Frosti is
joining him on the block.
Frosti asks Todd to be
careful of Erik, because he's smooth with the ladies. "Tonight's vote is
killer," he says. "If Erik makes it to the end, he wins a million
dollars. It's a tossup." Todd wants Denise to try and pull Courtney in
to vote out Erik. Denise at least has an idea of who's voting for whom
tonight. Todd tells Courtney that it's either going to be Erik or Frosti.
She's worried that she may lose her friend. Does she go with the group
or not? "I don't know who I'll vote for." The thing about Courtney,
though, is that she can turn at any moment.
Night 27: Tribal Council.
Jeff was surprised that James would take a
chance to eat rather than play. "I ate seven of them." He was hungry.
Todd was the same way. "Fat kid came out and say 'Dude! Eat!'" Frosti
knows that being here always runs the chance of going home. Erik thinks
that he had to play the challenge in order to stay in the game. He's
somewhere on the bottom. Amanda thinks that the friendships and
strategic-relationships are tough when they butt heads. Denise expects a
little more loyalty out of someone she likes, but then again, there is
no loyalty in a game like this. Frosti believes that relationships from
the old tribe really helped. Sometimes in this game people get hurt.
Erik feels the same way.
Frosti: ERIC (sic) - "One of
us will be eating cheeseburgers before the other. Neither one will
Erik: FROSTI :( - "It's you or me tonight, bro. Nothing personal."
Amanda: (hidden) - "I think you're an amazing person. Sorry. I hope we
can be friends later."
And the rest...
Courtney: FROSTI :(

ability to adapt will be crucial to surviving the next 12 days. That
will be tested... right now. Jeff directs them to stay at the Tribal
Temple. "We have more business to attend to here."
