I'm Not A Good Villain
April 1

Last time, both tribes went to Tribal, and while it was a medical necessity to get rid of James, the villains' Achilles heel was exposed: a rift between old-school Boston Rob and new school Russell. Boston Rob made it clear that if you weren't with him, you were against him... and Tyson was definitely against everyone, leading to his eventual ouster when Russell used the immunity idol to save Parvati. Thirteen remain.

DAY 16: "For the first time, I was shocked."

Rob senses that something doesn't feel right after last night's Tribal. He thinks taht it's weird that three people have all the power while five others are runing scared, figuring that Russell's camp needs to be knocked out. Courtney meanwhile notices that Parvati has no problem flirting with "anything that walks".... Yep.

Or it could be that the joke is on Rob.

Later that day...

Jerri reports to Russell and Parvati about what is going on with Rob. Danielle says that if you have a tight alliance, you can get all the way to the end. Russell, on the other hand, is patting himself on the back for bringing Parvati and Jerri, two women that, by the very definition of "woman", hate each other, together for HIS benefit.

Parvati, on the other hand, thinks that Jerri is "noncommittal". She and Coach don't know where to go, but maybe she'll take a chance with Russell.

Over on the Heroes beach... everything sucks. Was voting James out the right decision? Right or wrong, strength is at a premium... and so are second chances so far as Colby is concerned.

R-CHALLENGE: Basketbrawl (for a picnic, Courtney, Sandra, and Parvati sit out)

Swim out, get a ball, pass it to a tribesman who'll shoot for goal. The other tribe will try and stop you any way they can. First tribe to three wins.

Round 1: MEN. Colby scores. (Heroes lead, 1-0)
Round 2: TWO WOMEN/MEN. Candice scores (Heroes lead, 2-0)
Round 3: MEN. Colby scores. (HEROES SWEEP, 3-0)

The Heroes set out for their Reward, something long overdue. But Candice spots something.. a note that said that there was another Immunity Idol hidden at the beach. You want to ignore the clue... You can't! All five players agree that if they find it, they find it as a tribe.

Back at the Villains Camp, Russell tries to sway Coach and Jerri. "You and Jerri, I want to take to the top 3." Coach picks up on the "pure line of gold", and Jerri's buying it. Coach is trustworthy, says Jerri. They're honor-bound, but the waters are so muddy that Coach doesn't think he has a choice. On the other hand, Rob is not trustworthy at all. Jerri thinks that Coach is naive, saying that Russell is in it to win it... and so is she. And in the grand scheme of things, Coach is too naive.

Day 18...

I-CHALLENGE: A Tangled Web (Jerri, Danielle, and Russell sit out)

Three members will relay up a platform and onto a net, then climb up a web to retrieve puzzle pieces. First tribe to put together their puzzle wins.

The Villains start on a slight lead that gets wider. Rupert makes up some time on the second pass. Candice, even more so. The Heroes take the lead. They start on the puzzle first... and don't look back. HEROES WIN!

Rob, Sandra, and Courtney... all pathetic. Russell tells Rob that they need to "weed out the weak", telling Sandra and Courtney point blank that one of them is going. Rob wants to keep his alliance strong. "I'm after him," Russell says. "And he's after me. And may the best man win."

Coach's plan... either blindside Parvati or get rid of Courtney and regroup the alliance. Is Parvati more of a threat than Russell, though? Coach wants Rob to be standing with him on the last day. Rob is basically putting Coach's reputation and loyalty on the line.

Russell's group want to blindside Rob. I wish I could make it any more drama filled, but There you go. Oh, but Coach wants Courtney out. So it's ability versus trust. And we feel that the merge is coming. And Coach is feeling like a heel, wanting to be true to Boston Rob, but knowing all too well what's coming.

Rob is at Jerri's mercy, with no leg to stand on. He's got no other choice but to trust Jerri's judgment. Oh, Rob.

The sun's going down... it's getting to be that time.

NIGHT 18: Tribal

Sandra thinks that everyone's all over the board. Coach thought that Tyson could've worked the cap, admitting that Jerri and he were floating. Everyone disagrees, with Russell says that getting rid of Tyson solidified the group. Russell could've blindsided anyone, but he made the best decision he could at the point. Everyone's so damn paranoid about alliances. Some people are thinking in terms of alliances instead of team. Russell uses Rob's own words against him. "I don't think you have the GUTS to do what I did. If you're gunning for me, you're not going to get what you want." Coach sees in Russell and Rob a Mexican standoff, but he begs (to deaf ears) to throw it aside for the tribe. Rob thinks that this vote will bring the tribe together.

Rob: RUSSELL - "Game over. It's either you or me."
Jerri: (Hidden) - "In hopes that this will be right for me at the end."

The rest of the vote...

Russell: ROB
Courtney: RUSSELL
Danielle: ROB
Parvati: ROB

And the final vote... from Jerri.... By a count of 4-3-1.... ROB, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
