Wars... And It's Getting Ugly: Night 21-Day 24" -
Night 21: The game is on...
Ami brags about her
happiness for being in the game, to which Chris replies,
"You're happy? What about me?". To which Ami mentally
replies, "What ABOUT you?" "We shocked the shiznit out
of them!" Okay, so it's appropriate to say shiznit on
the TV. Chris is shocked that Lopevi's alliance didn't
hold true "for the first time". It was a surprise and a
wake-up call at the same time. They put too much trust
in them. They got burned for it. The feeling's mutual,
as she can't trust the guys. She did to them what she
felt they were going to do to her. She feels bad about
And where are Julie and
Twila? In the grand scheme of things: in the middle. In
the interim: in bed.
Day 22: "I thought
Twila was sincere."
Sarge is beginning to
piece the women alliance together with "despisal and
remorse. It's awkward talking to any of them!" And
Skull and Quizbones (for a helicopter ride and lunch)
A quiz on Vanuatu
culture meets the traditional pecking order challenge,
with three skulls for each person. Correct answer earns
you a free burn of one of them. All three lit, you're
gonzo. Last person not fully lit wins reward.
The word "Vanuatu"
means... land eternal - Chad, Scout, Sarge lit.
The archipelago of Vanuatu consists of... 83 islands -
Chris twice, Sarge twice, Julie twice, Ami, Chad twice;
Sarge & Chad out.
According to Vanuatu culture, large curved pig tusks are
a sign of a person's... wealth - Chris, Julie, Leann
lit; Chris out.
True or false: local sorcerers often participate in "Magne"
in which a small cup of lava is consumed in order to
exorcise spirits and demons. FALSE; if you drink lava,
you would die - Twila, Eliza twice and out.
True or false: Vanuatu has the highest concentration of
different languages per capita than any country in the
world. TRUE - Scout, Julie out, Ami lit.
The tam tam is a unique indigenous version of a... drum
- Scout and Ami out.
The national dish of Vanuatu... laplap. Leann knocks out
Twila to win.
Of course, no fun going
alone... Julie goes with.
Chopper ride: Julie
Leann and Julie board a
chopper that takes them through the jungle before
arriving at their location, the top of a dormant
volcano, Mt. Mara. Leann selected Julie because she
wasn't quite sure where her loyalties were in the game.
They rip on Eliza for not doing anything about camp and
Scout for expecting too much out of them.
Back at camp... Eliza
(and the men for that matter, less so, though) is still
breathing fire over how she was eliminated. Scout, after
saying "Get over it, it's a game", tries to calm the
flame, insisting that Eliza was targeted because she is
smart. Does she buy it? She'd too smart for that...
Unless, of course, she isn't. Both players have had
their fill of each other.
Chris reveals what we already know to be true: The
challenge exposed a vulnerability in the Yasur Alliance
in the pecking order. Now what to do with that
knowledge. "Scout will burn Eliza. We've got to take
Eliza out." Chris thinks it would be a great idea to
make Yasur believe that Eliza is gonna jump ship to
their alliance. That'd be an easy out for her. "Try to
convince the women that Eliza is no good, that Eliza
feels vulnerable, that she doesn't trust her position,
that she's unhappy when she was selected in that
challenge and that possibly, she's been talking to us."
Julie and Leann return to camp with some of the chicken
wings strapped to Julie's leg... shouldn't that hurt?
Meanwhile, while the guys are boating, the ladies make
off with all the chicken, leaving the guys with... well,
NOTHING! You thought Johnny Fairplay was low? This is
downright evil. At this point, I'm ready to curse the
Yasur tribe to whatever unholy fate awaited them,
because they sure as hell deserved it.
Day 23: Tree mail...
and a pig?!
Yep. A pig. And Eliza is
all by herself to tame it. Not having any luck, she
enlists Chris. Squeal, piggy...
Twila and Sarge are
machetes at the ready for some pork chops, but Eliza
isn't having it. Sarge: "I wanted to eat the pig so bad
that I could taste his fat back cooked up with my
Now to tree mail...
Health, wealth, a status symbol,
with this pig, you can have it made.
Feed him, clean him, take good care,
give him shelter in the shade.
Soon enough some of you will learn the value of this
Keep him happy, healthy, in your camp; soon he could
pay off big.
Sarge calls it the
biggest letdown since Estrogen City moved into Lopevi.
But at least it's his for now...
Jeff will reveal one
flippy puzzle. The players will have to memorize it,
then take one minute to replicate the pattern. If they
can't, they're eliminated. Last person standing wins
immunity. After five configs, Ami wins the coveted
Immunity Talisman, to which I say... boo.
Day 24: Twila's an
Ami tells us she isn't
sure she should have tried to win the challenge, but she
can't let herself lose. Target: Sarge. He is a physical
threat, and is vulnerable. Sarge echoes that thought,
but thinks that Eliza may go home in a twist.
Chris, Chad and Scout chat about Eliza. Scout admits
that Eliza drives her "nutty". Walking together, Ami
tells Eliza, who is completely paranoid she finds it
puzzling that Scout is talking so much with Chris. Eliza
thinks Scout would write her name in a heartbeat. The
feeling is more than mutual. Eliza is aware Scout
has a strong dislike of her. Again, mutual.
Twila and Sarge have a heart to heart about the last
vote. Sarge is still upset with Twila. He had her back.
He gave his word. There was no reason for her to turn on
him and the other guys. She feels like she let
them down. After learning why Twila had betrayed him,
Sarge mended the fence by convincing Twila that she was
lied to by Julie and not by his Lopevi alliance. They
talk with Chad about Eliza, as they think the numbers
are with them once Julie joins up.
But the game isn't over.
"The ladies are a tight-knit group, and if you want to
stay, you gotta please'em!"
Night 24: Tribal.
Eliza admits it. She was
pissed about the Reward Challenge. It's her nature, and
even as she's certain of her place, she still has her
bag packed. about the Reward Challenge. Sarge explains
Lopevi's deal with Twila and Julie. He points the finger
at Julie as the one who lied to Twila, who feels stuck
in the middle now. Leann feels badly for Twila about the
last tribal, as she took the heat. Chris says duplicity
is part of the game. And speaking of number, it's all
about the jury now... Voting...
Chris: SARGE - "Just
let'em open the door. This is for you, not against you."
Whatever that means...
Now the reveal.
The phrase snowball's
chance in hell comes to mind, but for now, Sarge, the
ladies have spoken. Dis-MISSED!
