He's a Snake, But He's My Snake
October 23

Ding Dong GC is dead, but is Ace next. That is the question we are presented with as this episode of Survivor opens, but Ace, being his ever knowledgeable self is already thinking his way out of his predicament.

He knows that it’s likely he or Sugar next, so he has his eyes open looking for someone that he can turn into a “Benedict Arnold”

Enter Matty stage right. Matty thinks his position in this game is horrible and he is willing to listen and agree to any logical plan.

Ace offers him a deal where the two of them, Ken and Sugar become a 4 person alliance protecting each other into the merge. Matty swears on his girlfriend, Ace on his mother and an alliance is formed. All before the show open!

Other than the alliance forming, Fang is feeling better with GC out of the picture, Kelly can’t help but gush about the feeling of positivity that is running through the camp. Then she and the rest of the tribe take a look inside the rice sack. Positivity dead. They have 6 days of rice for what they presume is 9 days until the merge.

Unbelievably, even with winning 6 of 8 challenges thus far, there are food problems at Kota as well. Apparently Dan is taking way too much food (2-3 scoops more than everyone else.) While members of Kota seem to be aggravated by this no one really says anything.

Which is just fine because the teams will likely want to save their breath for the reward challenge.

But wait! We have one more act of random stupidity. At Fang, Ace tells Sugar that he is 90% sure that everyone knows she has the idol. Sugar then without being prompted offers to give the idol to Ace. He of course accepts and now Sugar ahs no protection whatsoever.

Challenge Time!

Each tribe will be tethered to a 200 lb fake snake that they will have to carry around an oval track. Each team will start at an opposite end of the track and the first team to tag the other team wins. A tribe member can drop out of the challenge at any time, but if they do, the rest of the tribe will have to carry the weight.

And what are we playing for? Danishes, Croissants, Tea and Coffee (Surprisingly not brought to you by Dunkin’ Donuts).

Ok, Do I really have to write this part…?

Corinne sits out for Kota and as the race begins, Fang actually is picking up steam quickly. Then they fall victim to their old ways and within minutes, Kelly, Ken, Sugar and Crystal all drop out. That leaves Matty and Ace carrying 100 lbs each and ladies and gentlemen, it’s all over.

Kota wins reward! They eat happily in front of Fang, send Sugar to exile (again…) and Crystal begins to cry. Randy loves this and thinks the only thing better than winning is seeing Fang losing. Some people would call him a bastard for that…

So with Sugar exiled to her shack (she feels guilty for eating so much fruit), Fang has very little to do before the immunity challenge.

Kelly is working her magic saying that Crystal has turned into GC being a total negative Nancy. Crystal goes and follows Kelly and Ace and confronts them and tells that that her crying is not a sign of weakness. Who cares, really? Fang is totally discombobulated.

Kota, on the other hand, channeled their inner “Shredder” and caught a ninja turtle! (Okay, so maybe not ninja). Turtle soup is served in the middle of Africa and Randy takes the meal as an opportunity to distance himself from Dan. He’s convinced that an association with Dan will hurt him, so he’s stepping away by poking at Dan’s overeating habits.

That said it’s back to the field for the Immunity Challenge.

Each team will race to assemble a flag pole by retrieving parts from and obstacle course. Tethered in teams of 2, the first pair will clear the first obstacle to retrieve the first pieces and bring them back. Then team 2, will go deeper through the obstacle course through 2 obstacles doing the same, and the final pairing will traverse the full course of 3 obstacles.

Some surprises during this challenge.

Sugar and Kelly actually beat Bob and Randy through the first obstacle.

Ace paired with Crystal rather than with Matty leaving Matty and Ken to run the final leg.

Those pairing were good decisions as Crystal and Ace actually worked decently together and Matty and Ken overtook Kota retrieving the final pieces.

Both teams started assembling the flag poles in a near dead heat

And now for the not so surprising occurrences.

Ace pushed everyone away from the pieces so that he could do the flagpole himself (whoops, wrong section)

As a result, Fang lost.

Kota wins Immunity! (Will someone please fix my damn Jeff Probst record!)

So UIong, I mean Fang, will be heading to yet another tribal council.

As the finger of blame (death) is pointed all throughout Fang camp, Crystal wants Ace out. Matty doesn’t agree, (understandably) and Matty tells Ken in private that the plan is to vote out Kelly. Lost Yet? Ken tells Matty that he doesn’t trust Ace and then Ken tells Sugar that he doesn’t trust Ace. Sugar then tells Ken that she gave Ace the Immunity Idol. WHAT!?

So, Sugar Survivor party foul aside, we have Crystal, Ace, and Kelly all fair game come tribal

At tribal, Jeff asks his usual question which at this point have become ridiculously rote (seriously, someone please fix my Jeff Probst Victrola. He didn’t win an Emmy for being a broken record that just says Seacrest Out!)

So shall we vote? Sure!

Ace dodges the vote completely, Crystal takes a hit and Kelly, the tribe has spoken.

So Kelly head off into the darkness, torch snuffed, as the victim of a landslide vote.

Can Fang turn this around? Doesn’t seem like they are going to have the chance as the previews for next week allude to both tribes having to vote someone out. Things will be shaken up on the next Survivor.
