Create a Little Chaos (Tandang)
October 10



To quote Supertramp's last Top Twenty hit, "It's raining again...oh, Lord, it's raining again." Despite the tarp the Tribe won three days ago, the roof of the shelter STILL leaks. Lisa's thinking the rain is wearing the tribe down since there's next-to-nothing to do while it rains...and it rains a LOT here. Pete is feeling both bummed and good. Bummed at the weather, GOOD that he has quasi-control over the 3I that Abi-Maria found yesterday.

Speaking of, what's that slip of paper under the blankets? Why, it's the 3I clue! Now EVERYBODY knows that the 3I is "right under their nose". Or...it WOULD be if it wasn't taken and hidden. Abi thinks RC brought it out of hiding...though wether it was by accident or on purpose she doesn't quite know yet. But the fact that RC took the clue out of hiding in the FIRST place proves to Abi that RC has not been 100% honest with her at all. RC, however, doesn't know HOW the clue got out. Truth be told, it was Pete who stuck it there. See, his plan is to play a non-lethal version of the Joker in "The Dark Knight" and cause some chaos in camp. More specifically, he causes chaos beneficial to himself and his secondary alliance with Abi (and, hopefully, Artis as well). He doesn't want ANYBODY to play their own game. Well,...no telling if this chaos is "fair" like the Joker claimed...but, in this game, more-or-less everything IS fair so...


At least the sun's out and Tandang is able to cook something. Though Michael tries to patch things between RC and Abi, it's clear that they're no speaking to each other after the fiasco of yesterday. This is just the way Pete likes it. RC is a problem according to Pete and any discomfort he can cause her is good for him. RC does attempt to talk with Abi, but Abi's quick with the "not gonna talk" talk. She just refuses to listen to RC claiming she didn't know. Pete plays dumb, Lisa thinks this'll flame out...and, as usual, Artis is nowhere to be found in this mess.


Challenge Clearing...Uncle Jeef...strange-looking obstacle course-like setup...Matsing sans Angie...Tribal Immunity Idols back up for grabs...Uncle Jeff explains:

One at a time, a Tribe member will take two jars of rice and, using a bamboo pole, carry them through an obstacle course and place them on poles. After six jars are on poles, the Tribe will then use a "wrecking ball" to smash said jars. First two Tribes to smash all six jars gets to relax again as the third goes to Tribal tonight. And, of course, there's Reward to be had as well. First to smash the jars gets steak and veggies to barbecue back at camp and get some much-needed protein. Second gets a wok and some veggies to spice up whatever they have back at camp. In addition, if a winning Tribe wants to trade the food for a tarp, they can do that. As Matsing is down to THREE, Kalabaw and Tandang will have to run only half their Tribes. Both tribes choose to run with just the men.

"Survivors ready...GO!"

The starters for Kalabaw, Tandang and Matsing repsectively are Carter, Michael and Malcolm. Carter hooks his pole on a stand and breaks a pot, necessitating another be loaded before continuing. So, for ONCE, Matsing takes the LEAD with Tandang on their tail. Michael's a little slow...but Carter's even SLOWER, slipping on the muddy ground under the bamboo obstacle. Once Malcolm and Michael get their pots in a row, they crawl UNDER the obstacles to get back to their Tribe. They return as Carter finally gets to the end. Russell starts off for Matsing and Artis for Tandang.

Russell moves carefully through the obstacles...and Artis even MORE so. When Russell gets his pots up, Artis is barely halfway through and Carter tags in Jonathan. But the places remain the same: Matsing, Tandang and Kalabaw. Last runners are Denise, Pete and Jeff. Due to the OBVIOUS mismatch, Pete takes a slight lead over Denise...and Jeff, bum leg and all, is closing ground. Tandang is the first to return to base and then run to start the wrecking, crawling back under the obstacles. Matsing is close behind and Kalabaw has almost made up the time lost by Carter.

All three members of Matsing and Tandang reach the mats. Malcolm and Artis swing the balls and start smashing away. Artis is a smashing machine, one time nailing several pots in one swing. Both are awfully close when Kalabaw finally hits the mat and Jeff starts to swinging. It's 5 for Tandang, 4 for Matsing and 2 for Kalabaw when Artis lines up... pushes hard...smashes the final pot! TANDANG WINS IMMUNITY AND STEAK DINNER!!!

It ain't over yet, though. Kalabaw gets up to 4 before Matsing gets #5. Jeff bowls over #5 as well...and it gets down to the last swings...

Malcolm misses...

Jeff misses...

Malcolm...misses again...

Jeff...tips the pot over...

...and the ball SMASHES the pot on the way back!! KALABAW WINS IMMUNITY AND VEGGIES (which they will trade for the tarp)!!

Sonova...for the fourth straight time, the red and yellow Tribes take home Immunity and Reward...and the blue tribe is left with NOTHING but a trip to Tribal Council and the Pagoda of Doom! And Russell is PISSED, smashing the pot himself and shouting, "Same old crap!" He then shouts up to the heavens wondering what the Lord is DOING to him. When Uncle Jeff tells Russell that he's "just a man", he goes on a rant about how he's "perfect" and supposed to be "surrounded by excellence". But, though he's pissed, he CLAIMS that he understands. Well,...see what THAT gets ya at Tribal Council, Rus.

(P.S. I think the only GOOD news is that, at THIS time the LAST time there were three Tribes, it was condensed to two...so the two left in Matsing will PROBABLY be in different Tribes come next episode...we can only hope.)

(P.P.S. I'd feel for ya, Chico,...if I didn't go through this same @#$% against you back in Palau.)
