Wild: Night 12-Day 15" - October 21
Night 12: Rory gets his wish, but at what price?
The fire isn't the only
thing hot tonight, as Rory is pissed. But he elects to
hold his tongue until tomorrow morning. The ladies made
a grievous error in telling Rory that he was going to be
eliminated before Travis and his Bob Barker shirt went
bye-bye. He intends to play
sobbing-grandmother-with-bobbing-head for all its worth.
"I can't push these ladies too far. I just gotta balance
it and push them just far enough to get myself a little
bit of an opening." That he does. Scout's response:
"Wipe your ass and get over it."
Day 13: Tree mail!
YOU ARE LIKELY TO BECOME EXHAUSTED.
SO HERE'S TO MUD IN YOUR EYE.
IT'S ALL FOR CREATURE COMFORTS.
TO HELP IMPROVE YOUR STY.
So it's off to
challenge, where we have the opportunity to better
ourselves through the might sport of pig rasslin', so
that we can come together as... oh, hold on, Rory has to
go from pity pot to soap box here. "First off, my
apologies for the horrible things I said to you in my
mind last night. When I get angry, I tend to become
extraordinarily hurtful. I have come to you all with the
expectation that you all would give me a fair shot. And
I've done my damnedest to prove to you all where my
loyalties lie. At this point, I can't go back to Lopevi.
I can't! Because Bubba's gone. And what's going to be
their first thought? I sold Bubba out. So this is where
I'm at right now. Y'all's sty is my sty. But I will not
continue to slave around camp if I do not have a shot at
making it through Tribal Council."
Corny? Yes. Effective?
A Real Pig Pen (for steak and eggs; along with a skillet
and some ingredients)
First off, to any animal
rights advocates watching... Letters to GSNN are NOT
automatically forwarded to CBS. Pigs. They're valued on
Vanuatu. And they're valued today, as we have to catch
ten pigs in our color and corral them in our pen to win.
Scout keeps gates for our squad. Let's get dirrty....
Rory's the first with a
pig, and it's pig after pig after pig until... Eliza
screws it. Lopevi capitalizes and comes through with the
W, and the high-protein low-carb reward that comes with
Day 14: We know
you're sorry, Eliza. Now apologize.
After a thorough
scrub-down, the silent wind Leann chastises Eliza for
"not wanting to get dirty." She was the only one not to
get a pig, if you remember.
Rory's just bummed that
he didn't get a steak. Still winless, Rory points out
that if we lose Immunity tomorrow, he's going home. "And
you guys are sunk," even as Eliza is the weakest link,
The next scene: Eliza
says "I'm sorry." Lisa says "It's okay." Lather, rinse,
repeat, even as Lisa thinks as Rory, that Eliza is the
reason for the loss. Ami comforts Eliza upon plantains.
Eliza admits that though she likes Scout as a person,
she wishes she wasn't here. She thought she would make a
better gatekeeper. Ami counters that she's making
excuses and that she's not giving herself more credit
than she's due. "I'm not about to go down because
there's a bunch of muscles on the other team."
And yes, it's nice to
see that Ami's still, well, issuey.
Rory believes that Eliza
is signing Yasur's death warrant, having found a chink
in the armor of woman.
Day 15: I-CHALLENGE:
Okay, follow me here.
Four tribesmen will start on a floating island with
eight tiki pieces. Each tribesman will traverse two of
the pieces at a time through a line that threads itself
through an underwater obstacle course - around an
outrigger canoe, over a wall, through some hitching
posts, through a truss, and finally onto a trough. Once
all eight pieces are on the trough, start putting them
together. First team to do that wins Probst's Power Pole
and is guaranteed one more day in Vanuatu. Only one?!
Scout and Lisa, the best
friends they are, stay on shore to solve the puzzle. The
swimmers... have their work cut out for them. Chris and
Ami are first in the water, as Chris is first on the
beach. Rory vs. Sarge next, as Rory gains some serious
ground. Will Leann keep pace against Jules? Nope. She
loses the lead and leaves Eliza to anchor against John
K.... which will never happen. Lopevi has their tiki up
before Eliza can even hit the water.
Later that day: Loose
So who's next to go?
There are three on the bubble: Rory, by virtue of his
Y-chromosome, Eliza, by virtue of her foul-up, and
Leann, who believes that she should go because of HER
Uhh, make that four.
Lisa wants to go with Ami to get more manioc "to see
where it is just in case... you know." Woops! OR at
least Ami thinks it's a woops, because now she doesn't
trust Lisa. Scout and Ami talk about upcoming votes, as
Ami now pledges her vote for Lisa. Scout pledges to vote
for Eliza. Ami says that she trusts Eliza more than
Lisa. Lisa thinks that judgment upon one concern is
insulting. She swears to stay true to the end, even
though she's not going to swear to people who can't
trust her. "I'm not going to kiss Ami's butt to stay in
Scout fills Rory in on
the war between Ami and Lisa as he explains that Eliza
would be an ideal candidate to go. Not anymore, as he
has finally found a chink in the armor. And what do you
do with a chink? You keep pressing at it until,
eventually, it unravels. "Amazingly enough, my name is
not going to come up in Tribal today. All I want is for
somebody to leave the island other than me."
It's a knockout for the
kid, all right.
Night 15: Tribal
Scout says to Probst,
"We gotta quit meeting like this", as they haven't been
whooped yet. Leann feels a lot responsible for the loss.
Scout is voting for loyalty over strength. Eliza is sure
that people trust her, as Rory hasn't heard a word of
THAT. Lisa is sticking to her word. So is Ami. Rory is
in the hunt against... oh wait, another tender moment.
"I worked 110 percent since day one at Yasur. All I
asked for is a fair shake." Shake it off, Rory, because
it's time to vote.
Lisa: RORY :( - "I
really don't want to vote you off, but I want to prove
that my word is good with the ladies."
Ami: LISA (flower)
Scout: RORY - "This is not a vote against you. It's a
vote in support of our alliance. It's an honoring vote
for Lisa. I couldn't put her name down."
2-1 in Rory's favor. Rest of the votes:
Four to two, as Rory
gets his TKO. Lisa, THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN. So much for
