And Another Surprise!: Night 27-Day 30" - November 25
NIGHT 27: Who's the Narc?!
Chris has seen two of his
mates go by the wayside thanks to the gurl alliance, yet
Eliza is still here... and still as annoying as ever. So
it's no surprise that Chris outs Twila and Scout as the
master gamers behind the moves to eliminate Ami and
Eliza. Doesn't this just change everything, doesn't it?
But then again, it would also benefit Chris to an
DAY 28: Who's the
Leann goes to Twila,
"the panic player" about the plan. "She didn't
completely confirm the story, but she did tell me that
it was all Scout's idea. If they were going to go
through with their plan, they should've stuck with it,
because now they're screwed."
Played Out (for one hour chat with a loved one from
Standard quiz on the
game thus far. The Survivors get a little tease of the
prize to be won: one minute with a loved one from
home. We have a satellite and a computer (Apple)
uplink. Twila has zero computer sense, so to make it
easier, Jeff tosses in a webcam. Heeey... Twila talks
with her son James, Leann talks with her best mate
Teri, Eliza talks with her mommy Susan (so the big
eyes are in her father's side), Julie talks with best
friend Justin (or just says "Dude" all the time),
Scout talks with partner Annie, Ami talks with
girlfriend Chrissy, and Chris talks with his woman
Now to the challenge.
The players are going to be asked five questions based
on past challenges. The person who gets the most
correct will get a one-hour chat with their loved one.
To give them a taste of what's to come, each Survivor
is permitted a one minute chat.
1) In the seventh Immunity Challenge, who broke the
most tiles overall? Answer: Rory. Everyone right.
2) In the Great Escape challenge, who was the first
man to begin assembling his ladder? Answer: Chad.
3) In the second Immunity Challenge, who sat out?
Answer: Dolly. Everyone but Twila and Chris in right.
4) In the fourth Immunity Challenge, there were four
different symbols. Name them. Answer: volcano, pig,
palm tree, skull.
5) In the first Reward Challenge, which Survivor fell
into the water most? Answer: John K.
Julie and Eliza are
tied at 7. Tiebreaker: in the 3rd Reward Challenge:
name the matching pairs of items gathered by the
tribes. Julie is blanked, while Eliza knows exactly
what's going on. She wins the challenge and the visit
But rather than have
an online chat, how about an IRL chat overnight? You
see, the loved ones were only a few feet away in a
makeshift studio. Awwboatrideoff.
STILL DAY 28:
Eliza's mom has got it going on...
"I was worried about
the parasites. I was worried about Ebola. I was
worried that she wasn't flossing every day. I was
worried about the things in the sea that bite," says
Eliza's Mom. That's really all we see of her as she
chows on Alinta stew, which is nothing more than
leftover trail mix. Whether or not she shares stories
of Ken Jennings, we don't know.
So while Eliza was
talking someone else's ear off, Leann cornered Scout
about where her loyalties truly lied. She said that
she wanted to play with honor, but "have now come to
the lie, cheat, and steal" part. Then Ami says
something about not saying anything about Final Four.
Scout asks Leann directly if her final four spot has
been given to Julie. Leann confirms that it has.
"Vengeance is mine sayeth the jury." Waxing poetic
will get you somewhere...
DAY 29: Shirtless
Susan rides again
It's almost time for
Eliza's mom to bid farewell, so the girls rustle up
some half-arsed gift ideas... for everyone else. And
what does Susan do in kind? She takes her shirt off,
gives it to Eliza, and leaves the island in a bra. "I
know it might be wrong, but I'm in love with Eliza's
Twila, Ami and Leann go
back to scheming, as Twila admits that many players have
sought to make deals with her. Ami claims that if one of
the men tried to bring her on board she would send him
running back to his buddies by saying they have nothing
to talk about. She isn't sure that Twila has the
alliance's best interest in mind. She can't seem to tell
right from wrong.
Twila on the other hand,
swears on her son's life that she will not stray, "but
maybe if I won a million dollars, God'll forgive me."
DAY 30: Bug: HAPPY
THANKSGIVING from all of us at CBS
"I'm going to win
immunity." So sayeth the last man on earth, Chris. He
also sayeth that Julie was his mole, informing that the
girls've become GURLS again and that Chris is next on
the hit list.
your own skin, you'll need more than just will,
Brains and brawn, determination and skill.
Yes it's a race, so you must hurry.
Only one will be safe, and one more joins the jury.
Love is Blind
Today's challenge will
be run in pairs? WTF? Well, in a move taken from Mole
2, the loved ones (allegedly back on their way to the
states) are back in play, as they must find
(blindfolded) three puzzle piece bags from on a grid,
as directed by the Survivors. The pairs must then put
together their puzzle. First to do so wins immunity
and a one-in-six shot at a million bucks.
Amy & Crissy are the
first ones to start on the puzzle, with Chris & Laurie
right behind. It's a race between the two camps as...
Ami & Crissy win the Immunity Talisman!
But for now, it's time
to say goodbye again... Awwwboatrideoff... Chris
thinks he'll see Laurie sooner rather than later.
Laurie, "I am sorry we didn't win. Are you going home
tonight?" Chris, "Yeah, I am."
Change of Heart
Without Eliza and
Chris, the rest of Alinta gathers to discuss the vote.
Plan A is to vote Chris off. Leann, thinking that
Chris deserves to stay, objects to that, putting up
Eliza instead. Ami believes Chris should go next but
is willing to sacrifice Eliza if Leann feels so
strongly about keeping Chris around. She hopes
Yasur hasn't made the wrong decision.
Julie gives Chris the good news (not involving car
insurance), that he is not going home. People feel he
deserves to stay more than Eliza. Chris can't believe
what he is hearing. "I don't even have to do
anything to change the tide of the game."
But the game changes
yet again, as Twila admits to Chris that she's had it
with Leann and Ami. It is about time things got
shuffled. "The last few days, you've held the key and
you haven't realized it." She proposes a new alliance
between her, Scout, Eliza and Chris. Chris
enthusiastically jumps on board. "Damn right, I'll do
it! I'll turn the tide, I'll take the risk right now."
He gives his word. He will chat with Eliza and bring
her into the fold.
So now that we have a final four favorite that DOESN'T
include Ami, it's time to show someone the door. Chris
and Eliza discuss things, but Eliza is not sure if she
can trust Scout or Twila. Scout and Twila could be
playing them. Chris says there is nothing he can do to
prove how serious Twila and Scout are but he is not
lying. "Please, take this risk."
NIGHT 30: The
Tribal That Changes Everything... Unless of course, it
Having gotten to the
conjugal visit, Eliza realizes how far she's come to
the end. Chris knew that Laurie was giving her all and
then some. Leann and Teri were just goofing off right
then, even as she wanted to win. Leann didn't think it
was life or death. Eliza brought her bag again,
thinking that she'll just eke by if she stays again.
Chris notes tension among the women.
Now the matter of the
vote. Ami is immune.
Julie: Eliza - "It's
what everyone agreed, but you are like a little
Ami: elyza(sp) - "Sorry, but I have to stick with the
team. I guess it's your time to go."
Two votes for Eliza...
Three votes for Eliza (Leann)... But, one of my
favorite phrases... Just when you think it's over...
By a vote of 4-3,
Leann, the tide is turned, and THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
Chris and Eliza are pleased. Chad and Sarge are
elated. Ami and Julie are flushed.
And Wolvie, I'll take
you up on that offer... Hell, I'll PAY for it :)
