Worst Case Scenario (Espada)
HERE TO READ THE HAPPENINGS AT LA FLOR
DAY 15: PACK IT UP, PACK IT
Dan sees a another storm on
the clouds and let's Holly know. He ALSO let's Holly know that...well,
he's thinking of quitting. He claims he can't take another 3 1/2 weeks
of the weather. Holly knows, though, that quitting is not an option once
you've signed up for this game; you either stay the course...or you
should've never come in the first place.
Yve talks with Holly about
the blind-siding of Tyrone. Holly THOUGHT Yve was in an alliance with Ty...but
Yve venemently denies it. Holly ALSO makes the mistake of telling Yve
about Dan wanting out. Damn. Yve says it right: ya gotta do what ya
gotta do to stay alive in this game.
REWARD/IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: RINGS
IN THE SAND
We meet Uncle Jeff on
Challenge Beach and he takes the Immunity Idol back from La Flor (who
sees us sans Tyrone, making their elders whisper "Awesome"). He then
tells us, "Tribal Immunity is NOT what you're playing for today". He
then shows two INDIVIDUAL Immunity Idols that they will be playing for.
Ut oh...it's the dreaded double Tribal Council day, isn't it?
Here's how it works. Each
tribe will have its tribemates digging in sand pits for rope rings with
an oar. They then use the oar rto place it in a basket strapped to their
waist over their cabooses. Once the ring's in the basket, the player
runs back to the starting point and puts it on a stand. First tribe
member to get three rings on their stand gets Individual Immunity at
their Tribal Council that night.
But that's not all! The ones
who get Immunity will then face-off in a rope ring toss, the object to
get the three rope rings on the hooks. Toss all the rings, run to pick
up any misses, go back to the starting point and toss again. First to do
so wins REWARD for their tribe! The BAD news: the winning tribe goes
FIRST at Tribal to vote someone out. The GOOD news: they stick around to
watch the losing tribe's Council...while feasting on chicken and beef
Espada loses the roshambo
contest so the seven members of the once-older tribe go first.
"Survivors, ready...GO!" We run...we sift...we find the rings. But
getting them in the basket...not so easy. Holly is the first to do so
and takes the lead, Alina and Yve close behind. Holly nails her second
without hitch. Dan struggles with his FIRST ring (needless to say he's
got zero chance). Benry catches up quick, being the third with two rings
behind Holly and Alina. The girls each find their final ring and
toss...but Alina's slips off the rim! Holly's is caught ON the rim and,
with a bootiy-shake, slips it in. Run back, hang it up...
HOLLY WIN IMMUNITY!
Now we watch La Flor fight
over each other for the other necklace...and, much to the anger of
others, it's Jill who wins. So...two elders will face off for the feast.
Immune Survivors ready...GO!
Takes a while (and severaly
re-gathering of rings) before Holly hangs one up. But, right after that,
Jill nails TWO in a row! Holly manages to tie it up. It's
toss-gather-toss-gather-toss-gather...who will hang it first?!
It's Jill! LA FLUR WINS
REWARD! They get to feast while we stew! Oh,...and they vote someone out
AFTERNOON 15: DAN DAMNED...OR
YVE OF DESTRUCTION?
Holly apologizes for not
getting the tribe a feast and they're cool with that. She's scared of
the numbers game, though; without Ty, the younguns outnumber the
original Espadas four-to-three. Best to go with the majority, she
First she talks with
Dan...who doesn't know what do. He doesn't NEED the money, but now he
doesn't want to lay his torch down. The young Espadas are leaning
towards ousting Yve, wanting to go to the merge (whenever THAT is) with
the strong Dan than the smart Yve. But Chase only trusts NaOnka and
thinks the best thing for HIM might be to ditch Dan. He talks with
NaOnka about it, and SHE wants Dan gone due to (what else?) his bum
Yve tells NaOnka and Alina
about Dan wanting out (way to go, Holly) and tries to convince them to
give him his earlier wish. Alina's argument is that Yve plays harder
than Dan...and, thus, she's the bigger threat to the tribe. Chase talks
to Holly later on about that very subject. "You've gotta tell me what to
think," begs Holly. NaOnka pushes for Dan's boot-out but wants to be
kept in the loop about who's voting for whom. The debate continues
between "weakest link" and "biggest threat" until the sun sets.
TRIBAL COUNCIL: WHO'S GETTING
HERE TO READ WHAT HAPPENED IN DETAIL WITH LA FLUR AT THEIR TRIBAL
After La Flor boots out
Kelly B. after a very heated debate and a tie-breaker vote, we march
into the Church of Doom and watch with severe droolage as the other
tribe munches on meat and sips on beer and soda. They can't talk; they
can only munch and observe...and that seems fine by them.
Oh, yeah, it's hard to watch
them feasting. NaOnka ain't even LOOKING. Holly would've given up her
Immunity to let the tribes trade places. Dan's not bothered with the ice
clinking: "If it's not a martini, it doesn't bother me." Only thing that
WOULD bother Dan is being voted out. Yve tells Uncle Jeff about Dan not
wanting to stay...and the debate begins. Dan says its not enjoyable but
he does it, Yve says they need more "positive energy" within the tribe.
Dan says he IS a liability in Challenges but he's in there swinging, Yve
says she is swinging as well but DOESN'T feel like a liability. Dan says
there's animosity between them and Yve DOES feel the heat. Dan thinks
Yve is arrogant and Yve says it's not HER talking about all HER money
and cars and houses.
Hey, hey...there are five
other opinions here. Benry says Dan's a liability but he ain't stupid.
Alina clearly says the choice tonight is between Dan and Yve.
Before the vote, La Flor
takes a hike (and Marty whispers, "Good luck, man" to Dan while trailing
behind). Holly remains immune. We see Yve's vote for Dan...and
vice-versa (only Dan writes "Eve"). Holly takes some time to write her
vote. Once she does, Uncle Jeff tallies and reads 'em out:
Another unanimous vote...and
Yve is outta here..
Based on the vote, Uncle
Jeff thinks Espada is unified. Based on what was HEARD, though...not so
much. We think about that heading back home.
