Go Out With a Bang
In the last round, Kim and
Sabrina turn a reward into a new plan... get rid of Mike. The end
result, the biggest blindside of the season... but not the last by a
longshot. Now 10 remain.
DAY 23: WHO RUNS ONE WORLD?
Four guys... six girls...
Now the Tarzan boys are trying to group together to form a counter
attack to the apparent rise of the gynocracy. Troy names names: Kim,
Chelsea, Sabrina, and Kat. And all it takes is one Idol to ruin their
day. If they can pull Christina into the fold, then the game is back on.
TREEMAIL! With a blackboard!
All of it is to be carried back to camp, while none of it is to be
revealed until all of the tribe is together.
.... so let's get the family
together... It's the season's first Do-It-Your-Damn-Self...
R-CHALLENGE: BOLADDER (for a
local barbecue picnic on a secluded island)
It's a variation on the old
game of ladder toss, in which two teams will throw a bola onto a ladder
rung. Most points wins.
It's Alicia, Jay, Kat,
Tarzan, and Troyzan (aka The REDS) vs. Sabrina, Chelsea, Kim, Leif,
Christina (aka the BLACKS).
Scores... to Kat (REDS lead,
2-0)... Tarzan (REDS leads, 6-0)... Christina (REDS lead, 6-1)... and a
chance to win it with Sabrina... NO SCORE! CHALLENGE, RED TEAM!
And Tarzan? Stick to
surgery. You suck as host.
This boat ride brought to
you by coconut rum. It's exactly what you think it is!
What's on Jay's mind? He
didn't really want to send Mike home before Christina or Alicia. He just
wants to make sure Kat is on the same mindset, even though that he's a
little more than a bit suspicious.
DAY 24: WIN WIN
Women are in the majority...
and Mike's gone. Kim's calling all the shots and laying low doing so.
Meanwhile, the rest of the women are secretly plotting to get rid of the
rest of the men.... and Chelsea doesn't want to know much about it.
She's looked both Troy and Jay in the eyes and said, "You can trust me."
She's going to have to lie to one of them or BOTH of them eventually.
HELLO, IT'S SURVIVOR! THIS
IS WHAT YOU SIGNED UP FOR.
Jay and Troy have a heart to
heart about their own plan, being very wary to let in only a select few.
Alicia needs to go before Christina. Jay doesn't trust her. He thinks
that Troy is dangerous, but Troy thinks that Jay's tight. He'll let him
keep thinking that.
He's trying to get into
Kat's head, saying that Kat needs to move forward. Kat says that she
needs to think with her head in order to win the game. Jay lets the
other women in on the plan... a mistake that I'm sure he'll come to
DAY 25: WOMEN ON TOP
Kim lets Alicia know right
up that no woman will win against a guy, telling Alicia to stay calm.
It's time to draw the line, time to let the guys know where the women
Jay and Troy talk about
Alicia and Christina, thinking that the women will pull a fast one. Troy
thinks it's going to happen. Jay doesn't think so. Again... Mistake #2.
it's anybody's bet.
One will get
The rest will just get wet.
I-CHALLENGE: STAY DRY
A Survivor classic. Feet on
perch. Hand tethered to a bucket of water. Any twitch will set it off.
Last one dry takes home hardware.
Challenge is on... and
challenge is off for Tarzan... and Christina.
First temptation... milk &
cookies. Sabrina wants out.
cupcakes.... Kim and Kat want out.
Next... Alicia wants it
sight unseen, and she gets... chocolate.
Forty-five minutes later...
Troyzan is out. Next item... immunity or... Chicken wings and beer?
Final bribe... burgers,
chips, and beer... Leif checks to see if Chelsea was true to her word,
that Leif would be less of a threat if he stepped off. She is... Leif's
off. CHALLENGE, CHELSEA!
Chelsea is still beating
herself up over having to choose between voting out one or the other.
"But I love money." And that makes it okay, apparently. Right now, she
thinks that Troy is the smartest person to take out. Meanwhile, she and
Kim devise a plot to split the vote between the two in case one plays an
The girls tell Jay that he's
got nothing to worry about. The girls tell Troy that he's got nothing to
worry about. The word "blindside" gets thrown around. A lot. Troy may
decide to play the fish hook tonight. No bones about it. He's not about
to let someone play him. He tries to get Jay to refocus... to no avail.
He STILL seems to think Alicia's going home. Jay thinks that Troyzan is
going to play the idol, so Jay decides to rustle a few votes for
Alicia... smoke out the idol... and get him next time. Kim... has the
fear of God put into her by this turn of events.
NIGHT 25: TRIBAL COUNCIL
Two Tribals, two guys.
Troyzan thinks that it's still men vs. women. Tarzan thinks that the men
have lost their will. Jay is with Troy on this... and he doesn't think
he is as safe as he once was. Kim... Jay... and Troyzan are the only
ones worried. Paranoia can wreak havoc on a plan. Chelsea says that as
much as this game makes you dishonest, you really have to go with your
gut and hope that people are being honest. Troyzan says that it's "mixed
up like hell", especially after the challenge. He thinks that his
teammates are not exactly on his side. Chelsea is keeping mum about who
has the Immunity Idol. Alicia notices that Troyzan... is wearing cargo
pants. Tarzan thinks that the alliance he knows of is going to
strengthen IF people say they're going to do what they said they were
going to do.
Jay: ALICIA - "I told you
not to step down."
Troyzan: KIM - "Sorry, but you're the strongest player. Had to see you
Kat: TROY :( - "I really don't wanna do this... but I don't have a
choice. I love you, lucky man."
.... Troyzan plays his Idol!
Votes against Troyzan do not count.
And the rest... are for JAY.
By a vote of 5-2-1... Jay, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
