Depends on the Pin-Up Girl
Dan and Suzie are the lone holdouts in a
united Kota tribe. Meanwhile, the Fang continue their downward spiral.
Ace, Matty & Sugar entered into an alliance, and they ended up voting
Day 19: "This is a tough game. We're
No rice on the Fang tribe, and no one's
more hopeless than Matty, especially after seeing Crystal trip over
their box of rice. Ever see a grown man cry over spilled rice? Sad,
ain't it? Not as sad as Crystal, who won't eat any of it. Matty & Ace
are going against Crystal. Ace says she's doing him a favor -- "She'll
be the next lamb to the slaughter."
Day 20: "People are going to think
Charlie, Marcus, and Corinne are looking
tighter than ever, as Dan points out. "It's weird when I'm not part of
the group. It makes me feel bad a little bit." Corinne says that that
makes him socially inept. He's seeking approval. Marcus says that Dan's
the ultimate paranoid human being.
R-CHALLENGE: Keep Away (for an
afternoon picnic and the right to send someone to Exile; Corinne &
Charlie sit out)
Three tribesmen will toss a breakable
ball trying to keep it away from an opposing tribesman who'll try to
break it, trying to force it to the ground. This'll be happening in two
rings. First tribesman to break the ball scores a point for their tribe.
First to three wins.
Round 1: Randy and Ace are the monkeys in
the middle. Kota scores, 1-0.
Round 2: Bob and Sugar attack. Bob's
scary. After a couple of takedowns... Kota scores again. 2-0.
Round 3: Dan can end it. Matty needs to
keep it alive. Kota wins!
Kota sends... Sugar to Exile. AGAIN.
At the reward, the Kota enjoy the lush
African scenery. Susie calls it "surreal."
At the Fang camp... a depreciated tribe
is licking its wounds... AGAIN. Matty's starting to get pissed. Matty
says that Ace needs to take out Sugar, promising to take him to the
merge whilst keeping his hands clean. Ace brings up that if Sugar has
the idol, then she can use it for our possession. Meanwhile, Kenny and
Crystal are trying to discern the nature of the conversation... and it
basically adds up to "She's next."
Back at the reward, a steward delivers
some special packages... letters from home. Nice.
And at Exile... Sugar's just wiling away
at the Sugar Shack. "What's funny is I'm pretty sure we're using each
other. I'm sticking with him because he's the strongest player. I hope
they're not all screwing me around."
The bad news... BOTH tribes are going to
Tribal Council tonight.
The good news... each of you will try for
It's a log roll, tribesman against
tribesman. Last one standing has the knack.
And there's one more twist.
- Dan vs. Ace... Ace wins.
- Charlie vs. Crystal... Charlie wins.
- Marcus vs. Matty... Marcus wins.
- Randy vs. Susie... Randy wins.
- Kenny vs. Sugar... Sugar wins.
- Bob vs. Corinne... After a bit of a pause... Bob wins. Bob was a
former lumberjack champ
- Charlie vs. Ace... Ace wins by THAT
- Marcus vs. Randy... Marcus wins.
- Sugar vs. Bob... Sugar wins by a hair.
- Ace vs. Marcus vs. Sugar. Sugar in the
water first... Ace second. Marcus wins immunity AND a note to read...
"You will now assign immunity to one member of the other tribe." That
person... Sugar. He's hoping that she'll lose one of the big power
players. Crystal says she's the most powerful person in this game.
Back at Fang camp, Matty & Ace want to
get rid of Crystal, and it all depends on how Kenny can play Sugar.
Kenny sings to Sugar like a canary. Sugar doesn't buy it. She doesn't
buy anything from anyone. Sugar wants to blindside Ace because of the
story Kenny says. Apparently, she's very smart. And Crystal's with them
Ace wants to borrow the Idol just in case
of a blindside. Sugar doesn't want to give it up this time. It's at this
junction where she starts to think that maybe Kenny's telling her the
truth. Crystal's supposed to go next, but maybe plans have changed.
Night 21: Tribal Council - Fang.
We're low on rice. Valuable rice. Crystal
is making an issue about it. Ace says that she made a mistake, and that
her making a big deal about it is her being delusional. The two go at it
some more. Sugar thinks it's just petty bullcrap. This is why we haven't
Crystal: ACE - "You're one of the snakes.
I have to get rid of you. Go home!"
Matty: CRYSTAL - "I've been waiting for this day for so long."
The Idol... is not played. The rest of
And the swing vote...
By a vote of 3 to 2, Ace, THE TRIBE HAS
The night is not over, however. Let's see
what happened over at Kota...
Day 21: Back to the afternoon...
Right now, it's a good time to vote Dan
out, he thinks. Randy, Charlie, Marcus, and Corinne ally up to the end.
As long as he keeps his end, he can make it to the end. They all think
Dan is a bumbling idiot and Susie is a strong ally. Charlie's hoping
that Dan crosses his fingers and Susie commits social suicide...
... and there she is doing just that, as
she and Corinne talk about voting Dan out and she lets its slip that she
was almost going to vote HER out. She goes to her alliance with that.
Randy says that Susie's vote can be bought, the problem with having no
game. Randy wants Susie to go home... soon.
Okay, so do you take the safe route and
vote for Dan, or take the risk and vote for Susie?
Back to Night 21: Tribal Council -
Marcus is basing his decision on what
happens over the next few days. Susie thinks that Corinne is the weakest
person on the tribe. Corinne doesn't agree. Corinne is picking up on
some of her tendencies to let loose. Randy doesn't have to pretend, and
people know where he stands most of the time. Dan tends to be a
worrywart. Charlie intends for the tribe to present a united front. His
vote is based on who he can trust going into the merge. Corinne hopes
that she is making the right decision.
Susie: DAN - "Sorry, guy."
Dan: The SUZE - "You have a great heart. I'm going to vote for how I
think the rest of the tribe is voting.
Marcus: SUZIE - "This is about Dan, not you."
The rest of the vote is...
By a four of 4 to 3, Dan, THE TRIBE HAS
