What Goes Around, Comes
HERE TO READ THE HAPPENINGS AT LA FLOR
NIGHT 15: DAN THE LOVE(D) MAN
Everyone seems to hug Dan
when they return to Camp Espada, happy he's still around. He compares
himself to the "Teflon Don" John Gotti (apparantly forgetting Gotti
actually got CAUGHT eventually). Chase wants NaOnka and Holly to
concentrate on booting out Alina next...unless Dan SNAFUs the next
challenge, that is. The ChaNaHol Alliance agrees: the smart,
hard-working Alina has GOT to go!
REWARD CHALLENGE: SURVIVOR WORLD
Challenge Beach and Uncle
Jeff awaits us as La Flor sees us without Yve (much to Marty's joy I'm
sure). The Challenge: one defender stands on a perch in a pool. The
other tribe members run off a "dock" to try to get a ball past the
defender and into a goal. First tribe to five gets Reward. And the
Reward...is pretty unique, to say the least: a Nicaraguan "farm
experience". On Day 17, the winning tribe will go to a farm for some
horseback riding and a fresh breakfast of eggs, cheese, tortillas and
milk straight from the cow (milked by them, of course). Jane will sit
this one out for La Flor to even things out. The Defenders...are NOT
Belushi and O'Connell in this case (pretty good show, BTW; you should
check it out)...but Fabio for La Flor and Chase for Espada.
Espada WON the Jan-ken-pon
this time...and our first attacker is NaOnka. She
runs...jumps...throws...over Fabio's head...GOOOOOL! ESP 1-0 LAF. Chase
on the podium facing Jill. Run...jump...toss...LOB...over Chase...GOOOOL!
ESP 1-1 LAF.
Round 2: Benry is next.
Run...jump...Fabio leans one way...Benry dekes and tosses the other way
into the wide-open net! GOOOOOL! ESP 2-1 LAF. "Remember that one," says
Fabio to La Flor. Marty up to try to tie. Run...jump...toss...TOO low,
hits Chase in the "little Espadas". ESP 2-1 LAF.
Round 3: Holly up for a
commanding lead. Run...jump...toss...deflected by Fabio's fingers and he
ALMOST stays on the podium. Still ESP 2-1 LAF. Kelly S. for La Flor.
Run, jump, HIGH lob...Chase can't jump that high...and it's a GOOOOOOL!
ESP 2-2 LAF.
Round 4: Dan vs. Fabio. The
slow run...the weak throw...the EASY block by Fabio...not that it was
legal since Dan didn't jump...oh, dear. If Dan wants to stay, he's NOT
helping his cause. Sash up for La Flor. Run, jump, throw...past
Chase...but HITS THE TOP POST! No score this round!
Round 5: Alina's turn to
face "Jud". Another lob...another GOOOOOL! ESP 3-2 LAF. Brenda vs. Chase
for the tie. Another lob...but this one hits the BOTTOM post! ESP 3-2
Round 6: Back to NaOnka...but
NOT before Fabio pees in the pool "Grown-Ups" style. It's gross...but
NaOnka seems up to the task anyway. Hard throw over Fabio's head...GOOOOOL!
ESP 4-2 LAF. Jill back up...will she lob again? Nope, she leaps right
and throws JUST before she hits the water. Chase can't react...GOOOOOL!
ESP 4-3 LAF.
Round 7: It comes down to
Benry. If he gets it past Fabio, we get reward. Run...jump...right AT
Fabio, it seems. Dekeing until JUST before he hits, he fakes Fabio out
greatly and slips the ball into the net! GOOOOOOOL! ESPADA WINS REWARD,
So we got THAT to look
forward to...which is nice.
DAY 17: GIT ALONG, LI'L
We arrive and are quickly
placed on horses for a nice trot to the farm. Chase is loving it, having
grown up with horses until his father died and they had to get rid of
them. To ride one now...it's like a piece of Mr. Rice is with Chase in
spirit. When they arrive, the farmer shows them how to milk a cow and we
get to it. Dan has fun with it...but NaOnka can't get the milk out
without help. Hey, at least she can now say she touched a cow's nipple.
And then came the food.
Eggs, cheese, rice, watermelon, cow milk...Holly was practically
SHAKING, she was so happy. And the fact that the six of them were
sitting down for a meal TOGETHER...it was quite emotional Alina and
Holly. NaOnka...not so much. She's been warming up to Alina...but it's
all the better for NaOnka when Alina's torch is snuffed!
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: CANNONBALL
Uncle Jeff re-reveals the
Tribal Immunity Idol for today's challenge while taking back the
Individual Immunity Necklaces from Holly and Jill. Two tribe members
will roll colored cannonballs down a long, steep chute whilst four
others use ropes to aim the bottom of the chute towards a sand pit
covered with five long ceramic tiles of the opposing tribe's color.
First time to smash all five tiles gets to sit out tonight's Tribal
Council. When asked who would sit out for La Flor, Sash said it would be
him...which confused the HELL outta Espada. Still, Benry and Alina will
roll the balls for us while Brenda and Kelly S. bombs for La Flor.
Oh,...forgot...the balls come in two sizes and can be dropped from one
of three different levels.
First for Espada, Benry
launches a small one from the lowest position...but it lands between
tiles. Kelly drops a small from high...and BANG! it connects. Alina
fires a big one from on high. It GRAZES one tile but it DOES break it so
we're tied. Bombs away goes Brenda on high...and it overshoots
After some consideration
from La Flor on positioning, Benry lets one fly...and NAILS the furthest
one. Kelly's misses, though, giving us a 2-1 lead. As positioning goes,
Benry bonks his head into Alina's chin...but she's cool. She drops from
the middle level...and connects! After arguing with Fabio, Brenda drops
from the top...and JUST misses. 3-1, Espada.
With a small ball, Benry
lines up from the middle level. He rolls...and it hits dead CENTER on
the closest one. Brenda rolls again...but they can't seem to hit it.
With Espada up 4-1, they'd better pray Alina misses her shot. As the
tribe pulls the ropes, Benry has a good feeling from her dropping from
the middle. She releases...it rolls...and it JUST misses the nose of the
tile! Kelly takes a big ball and drops from the lower...CRASH! It's 4-2,
Benry and Alina decide to
keep the chute where it is and go for a big ball, hoping the momentum
will be enough to take out the final one. Benry gets the ball...he drops
it...it flies...CRASH! ESPADA (FINALLY) WINS IMMUNITY! Alina
feels GREAT as they take the conquistador bust and head for home.
