Girl Is Like A Virus
The heroes overcame injuries to build
their camp. The villains didn't do much, and started to manipulate each
other. Meanwhile JT starts being villainous, while Rob makes like a
hero. In the end, James lashing out didn't put him in danger, but JT
turns on his alliance, voting out Stephenie. Now 18 remain.
NIGHT 6: "I just wanna win, y'all."
Tom wants to get the winds of war back on
track, while James just wants to win for once. It was a very nasty
Tribal... but we're trying to make it as pleasant as possible. JT
apologizes to Tom, though he does feel betrayed and with little option
than to trust him. All in all, the game is ugly. It's time for him to
play smarter, not harder.
Over at the Villains camp, Rob is
noticing that Parvati and Russell ... and Coach and Jerri... are
sleeping together. He doesn't trust him AT ALL.
DAY 7: "Our tribe hasn't been solid since we
met each other."
Rupert was hoping for rain, if only to
bring the tribe together. If they don't become a cohesive unit, they'll
continue to lose.
Meanwhile, the tribe works together to
retrieve a pair of chickens that literally flew the coop. More chicken
hi-jinks ensue at the Villains camp, where Coach calls Parvati the most
dangerous woman in the tribe, as she has no strategy, but lots of charm.
Rob tells Russell that she has a lot of friends on the other side.
Russell and Parvati have a moment to
themselves. She calls herself a sweet, innocent girl... Mmm-hmmm.
She doesn't trust anyone.
NIGHT 7: Throwing up...
While Coach is starting on a story and
Rob is complaining about it... Russell decides to start stuff by getting
rid of the machete. And Rob's Sox hat.
DAY 8: Way of the Warrior...
Coach starts the day in meditation mode,
while Randy finds a clam, offering it to his tribesmates. With no
machete to prop it open, Randy makes do with a rock. Randy's used to
eating what he can eat, because you never know where the next bit of
food is coming. Randy says that the only way you can get ahead in his
tribe is by schmoozing and charm, making Parvati the queen. Coach wants
to join up with Randy in voting her off, as she doesn't contribute to
the tribe in any way.
At the Heroes camp, Candice and JT talk,
JT scared of her game. JT goes to Cirie, saying Candice doesn't fully
trust her. Truth or BS? Who knows. Cirie goes to Candice, says that
she's hearing things. Candice starts asking around who said that Cirie
couldn't be trusted. Everyone denies it, calling Candice a nut.

Back at camp, the Villains, muddy and
humiliated, clean off and count their losses. Randy senses that his name
is on the block because he's the oldest person in the game AND the girls
are playing up the flirts. Coach tries to fend off Parvati's advances.
"That stuff doesn't work on me. I've been coaching women's soccer for 13
years. So out here with a million dollars on the line, I'm not going to
let it happen."
Rob and Tyson silently agree. Randy's
weak, but Parvati's a huge threat, because she has friends on the other
tribe. Jerri says that Parvati is like a virus. Sandra wants to figure
out where everybody lies before picking a side. Jerri is played up by
both sides of this quandary. But deep inside, Jerri wants to punch
Parvati in the face. The feeling is more than mutual.
Randy tells Coach that he's next, calling
this "Micronesia 2.0." Coach doesn't think anyone out there is
honorable, quoting MLK: "The greatest measure of a man is not in the way
he handles times of comfort, but in the way he rises with controversy
and challenge." The last thing he has is hope. He's hoping that Randy is
waking up in camp tomorrow.
NIGHT 8: Tribal
Sandra says that Parvati has a lot of
friends on the other tribe. Parvati defends her words, even though they
don't mean much. Russell says that it's a huge advantage that someone
might know a few people at the other side. Jerri says that she doesn't
want to lose another challenge. Past relationships should be a huge
factor. Sandra says that there's no clear leader unless someone's
working on stuff. Coach and Sandra argue this point... and Sandra brings
up that there's no machete. Russell says that it's a lot more fun on
this tribe than it was last time in Samoa. But there's a lack of
cohesiveness, something Rob doesn't think will affect the tribal
gameplay. He doesn't think being at Tribal will change things.
Time to vote...
Parvati: RANDY B. - "It was either you or
me tonight. I wasn't going to go down without a fight."
Randy votes for Rob... The others... vote
for Randy. By a vote of 9-1, Randy... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
