Things in Life Aren't Easy
It seems like the Kotas could do no wrong
until a) Marcus got them to throw away an Immunity Idol, and b) a merge
took place. Marcus took a powder for that move, but Kenny got Randy to
believe that a fake immunity idol would pass muster with Jeff... It
didn't, and now he's gone.
Night 30: That was crazy!
Bob is pissed off at the tribe for
rubbing the fake idol in Randy's face. Sugar... of course... doesn't
feel a bit sorry for Randy. She and Corinne go at it about how to play
Survivor. It's hard for her to play it off, because she's in a "tribe of
Day 31: Look at this guy...
Kenny and Bob begin the day by catching
some fish, something that Kenny never pictured himself doing. They end
up catching the biggest fish in the season thus far. Kenny says that Bob
doesn't know how to play the game. He just builds things.
R-CHALLENGE: Getting in Gear (for a video
message from home with lunch).
Two teams of three will race out and grab
a set of puzzle pieces. Arrange them to create a gearbox to raise a
flag. First team to do that will square off in a slide puzzle. The
player who finishes first wins.
It'll be Crystal/Sugar/Bob vs. Susie/Matty/Kenny.
Corinne will not have any shot at it. Sorry.
It should be noted that Sugar gives her
all for this challenge... if you know what I'm saying. Winners: Sugar,
Crystal & Bob.
Final round... goes to Bob! Easy. He gets
lunch and a message from home.
Oh, and there's ONE MORE THING! Don't
look now, Bob, but Peggy, Bob's wife is right behind you. So now you
have someone to share lunch with.
Back at camp, Bob returns with Peggy...
and some of her friends... Namely all of the other loved ones. Talk
about spreading the love there...
Kenny talks to her sister about
blindsiding Matty. He says that if he makes final three, he wins.
Sugar is given some of her father's ashes
to throw into the river, giving her closure.
Meanwhile, Matty decides to face his
fears and grow up. He wants to make a commitment to Jamie, his
girlfriend right now. He proposes to her by the river... and survey
Day 33: Who wants to go get tree-mail?
Bob says that tonight will be the perfect
time to blindside Matty. Meanwhile, the other five decide to stick
together, but who'll they vote against? How about Bob, THEN Corinne?
Bob tells Corinne that Marcus kept the
Immunity Idol for himself. Is that legitimate? Of course not. But he had
Corinne going, right? He's going to make another fake idol. For that to
work, Corinne suggests that one will have to win immunity.
I-CHALLENGE: Who Wants to Be a Gaboniare?
Questions. Answers get the balls. Closest
to the bullseye wins.
1) TRUE or FALSE? Gorillas were first
discovered here in Gabon. TRUE. Sugar & Corinne are right.
2) Female elephant, a mare, doe, or cow? Correct: cow. Sugar, Susie,
Corinne & Bob are right.
3) TRUE or FALSE? The poisonous Gabonese viper is considered harmless to
humans. Correct: FALSE. Trick question.
4) TRUE or FALSE? The elephant's trunk serves as nose, arm, and mouth.
Correct: FALSE. Kenny, Matty, Sugar, Corinne, and Bob.
And the closest to the target? BOB! By a
This will throw the non-Onions' plans
into a tailspin. Is this the time to blindside Matty? Corinne and Bob
talk about the story to tell the others, and the strategy to have
Corinne hold onto it for now. "It'll be so awesome if this worked." The
others are five strong, and no one is flipping.
Corinne tells Kenny the "story", taking
out Matty. Kenny says that their best chance is to take Matty, thinking
that he might have to rescind on his promise not to flip. "It just shows
you the level of incompetence we're playing with."
Bob is giving Crystal one last chance to
join his team, and offering the "idol" to sweeten the deal. He promises
Crystal final four in exchange for Matty's ouster. She honestly thinks
that Matty's going home. Kenny's backup plan... flush out the idol
instead of withholding votes. This is Crystal's only chance to take
Matty out. Let's see what happens.
Night 33: Tribal.
On the jury: Marcus, Charlie, and Randy.
Susie thinks that the alliances you make
during the game will help you win. This is the first time Bob gets
paranoid. Corinne thinks that paranoia can be an advantage. The worst
part about paranoia on Sugar's game is believing lies and keeping
everyone in check. Crystal says that it becomes crazy to trust after a
while. The trick of the game is to figure out when to trust and when to
cut your ties. Kenny thinks that tonight's vote is very important.
Bob is keeping Immunity.
Kenny: MATTY - "This is clearly a
strategic move. I'm sorry to see you go, bro."
The rest of the votes...
And the tiebreaking vote...
By a vote of 4-3, Corinne's plan
backfires, and THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
