This Isn't a We
TO READ THE HAPPENINGS AT KALABAW AND
The long hunt for the Idol paid off for Penner,
but a snuggle leads Roxy to try and break up a "couple" before they become a
couple... leading Matsing to their SECOND Tribal Council in a row and leading
Roxy out after the tribe decided to sweep her off of the game. Sixteen remain.
NIGHT 6: "That was fun."
It was fun, it was interesting, and Roxy did what
she had to do... all of which was unnecessary. Her strategy: throw Angie and
Malcolm under the bus. The rest of the tribe know that Angie and Malcolm are
just friends... or do they. Russell just needs one more to help his cause out.
Could that one more be Denise? Let's find out... A new round begins.
DAY 7: ... Where's our raft?
A new day begins... with a bit of disaster. The
raft, which Malcolm had above the tide line, is floating in the middle of the
Malcolm believes that if they go back to Tribal,
it'll be either Angie or Malcolm. There's no clear cut decision at all. There's
such a focus on Angie & Malcolm, says Denise, but she's still holding onto hope
that Angie will be the next to go per her agreement with Malcolm.
DAY 8: REWARD/IMMUNITY CHALLENGE:
DEEP IN THOUGHT
One by one, the tribesmen will dive
down and release nuts with letters on them that spell "TREASURE".
First two tribes to get it right win...
WIN: Complete fishing kit with canoe and immunity.
PLACE: Basic fishing kit and immunity.
SHOW: A trip to Tribal Council.
And Skupin dives head first into the line containing the nuts,
opening up a nasty gash. But once again, it's Matsing that are in
DEAD LAST. They manage to catch up... but KALABAW wins! In second...
TANDANG. For the third straight time in a row, Matsing are going to
see Jeff in Tribal.
It's tragic that Malcolm is on the goon squad that he's on, but
thank goodness for Denise. Angie couldn't compete, and Russell can't
climb a ladder. Angie doesn't want everyone to think that she's a
weak link, saying that she never said that "she can't". Denise
thinks that it would be ridiculous to keep Angie at this juncture,
but she wonders how she can get Malcolm to swing her way.
"Everyone has their weaknesses, I showed mine," says Russell.
"Diving 10 feet down, that's just not my thing. It's really hard to
see a clear path forward." He could see himself go home. He doesn't
know if this is all of a greater plan. "I am down.. but I am not
DAY 8: "I would have gone again."
Angie and Malcolm are on the beach, assessing the situation. It's
between Russ and Angie for Malcolm. Russ has not spoken to him since
day one, while Angie is not a physical threat. Angie trusts Malcolm,
and she knows that they will vote out Russell. She says she's here
to win and she'll do whatever it takes.
"To not continue to fight would be to spit in the face of all those
people who endured so much more than I will ever endure in my life
and definitely in this damn game." Well put, Russell...
NIGHT 8: TRIBAL
We'll be down to three after tonight's vote. Denise sacrificed
family and income to play the game. Malcolm was a lifelong loyal
friend and true, being between tears and screaming for the past
eight days. "It's heartbreaking." He says that people stepped up and
people didn't pull their weight. The people that can do it need to
step up. Angie is concerned that it could be her tonight. She
doesn't think it would be fair to vote her out tonight; she's a
fighter. Russell gave up, something he called "a strategic
decision." But he says that Angie is not ready for the long game.
She begs to differ. Russ recalls the entire challenge, calling
Angie's account "revisionist history". That drives Angie to tears.
It is hard to compete with him. Malcolm says that Angie is doing
things right now that no other little girl in this game had to. What
happens when strength and loyalty clash? How important is loyalty is
to winning? Malcolm says that it's paramount. But do the tribesmen
go with strength or loyalty?
Russell: ANGIE - "Sorry I made you cry, but that's the way this game
seems to be played. I have to go hard... or go home."
Angie: RUSS - "One thing about me is that I never give up."
The other two votes.... are for ANGIE. Hate to see you go, but in a
unanimous decision, Angie Layton... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
