Swoop In For The Kill



So long.....

....Kat and good riddance! The thing I can't stand about her was front and center once she was at Redemption Island and that was the moment she tried to 'guilt' her boyfriend into replacing her in the challenge. It was funny watching her boyfriend asking Kat what she wanted to do as you can clearly see on his face which read something like "why the f*ck are you trying to get me to switch with you? I want to play my own damn game. Man up and swallow you pill!". In the end, I could sense that Kat only relented because she knew she would be ripped by public opinion had they switched.

As for Laura B., I did a face-palm when she told Vytas that the "group" were going to vote him out. What the hell. So far, the entire season she has "played" a really odd game. She doesn't look comfortable out there and it's clear that she doesn't have people skills at all. Everything that comes out of her mouth seems forced and scripted. She is definitely out of her element. I don't really see her surviving Redemption Island because she has been a huge liability in the team challenges so far.

Skin Of My Teeth




So long....


.....John and Laura B. Since this was the final Redemption Island before the merge, that meant that two of the final 3 would be going home for good. I knew that Laura B. would in fact be one of them. What I didn't see coming is that she would outlast John, who was the first to fail....big time. So, that left Laura M. to return to the game that this is where things really got interesting.

On one side you have Aras and Vytas working in harmony trying to do make smart decsions with input from both brothers as to what is good and what is bad. On the other side of the equation you have Laura M and Ciera jockeying for power. Ciera has her alliance and now she has to contend with her Mother trying to control the votes. Maybe that is the plan on their part because in the end, I can see that the merge Tribe would look at how well the brothers are playing and working together. In the end, Aras was sent packing, heading back to Redemption Island.

I was uncertain of Redemption Island was officially closed at the merge. Apparently not. I'm okay with this part of the game continuing on as it does had a lot more variety to what can and can't happen vote wise. Very fun episode to watch tonight.

My Brother's Keeper



So long....

....Vytas and Tina! Not so fast. No one actually went home tonight. They had two Tribal Councils and both were sent to Redemption Island. So, we gotta wait till next week to see who is gonna prevail. My money is on Tina going home. But then again, it could be a puzzle type challenge. If it's a physical challenge, that's gonna make it more of an uphill battle for her for sure. Really not much else went down in this episode except the Food Challenge. I miss this challenge. They use to do it all the time in the earlier seasons. But somehwere along the way, they all but disappeared. Only recently have they started to make somewhat of a comeback.

This one was something special given the fact that it was the Food Challenge in Season 1 that solidified my loyalty to the show and more to the point, it was Gervase reaction of having to eat a grub that did it. Ironically enough, he managed to make it into the Top 2 in tonight's challenge and wouldn't you know it, in front of him were in fact...Grubs. And he had a similar reaction as well. Somehow Monica won it. Looked like she was gonna hurl for sure.

Big Bad Wolf




So long...

...Aras. He just got beat by Tina of all people! But then again, she was mere inches of beating him and Vytas. Coming in first right now doesn't matter. It's just surviving to make it to the next challenge. So, THIS was the episode we have all been waiting for since the announced this seasons format. Who would in fact vote out one of their love ones. It all came down to Ciera and Laura M. Ciera did make a compelling rationale as to why she had to vote out her mom. When it comes to numbers and odds, it really was the only move to make. Sure, it's not gonna make it any less gut wrenching to have to write down a love ones name, but the change at a huge payday at the end will make some of that sting go away. I actually think that Ciera has a hell of a shot of winning it all if she can make it to the Final Three.

Gloves Come Off



So long...

...Vytas. He just got beat by the two Moms (Tina and Laura M). Well, to be fair, they both "cheated" in an effort to get him out at any cost. Well, I shouldn't say 'cheated' since nothing was said in the rules about helping out anyone. So with Laura easily finishing the puzzle in record time, she basically fed Tina the information she needed to complete the puzzle before Vytas did. The rest as they say is history. Now if there are more puzzles coming in future Redemption Island challenges, I wouldn't be surprise to see them teaming up again and Caleb better watch out because he is the next one on the chopping block.

Watching Ciera playing the game is impressive. She is making good moves and it looks like she has Tyson and Gervase in her back pocket. She can claim loyalty to make them feel safe and then drop the bomb at her choosing to take out either one. My money would be to get rid of Gervase because I think he is more likable with the jury and you want to keep the one who may rub people the wrong way and that's Tyson. But we are a long way off from the Final 3, so both of those guys may not even be around that long anyway. And a new serious threat has emerge with Monica winning her 3rd Immunity Necklace. Pretty damn impressive to say the least.

Rustle Feathers



So long...

....Caleb. Man, talk about making a boneheaded play on his part. There was absolutely no reason for him to try and stack his cards as high as he went. If I were in the same situation, I would have surveyed the the opposition to see how far along they were and how much time was left to complete it. Add to the fact that his stack was completely misaligned, you knew the risk of it toppling over was there. Sure enough, it went.....and Tina sneaks in to the next round.

The episode as a whole was kind of ho-hum because everything was kind of laid out as to how Tribal Council would go. Um, not so fast. Tribal Council got very interesting, very fast and was totally unpredictable. I get why Ciera decided to flip on her alliance, but it will most likely prove fatal because the plan backfired as Katie was the one sent off to Redemption Island. How is Ciera going to get back in with her alliance now that she has betrayed them? Whatever happens, I was that f*cktard Hayden gone. What a meathead. TOOL!

Out On A Limb




So long...

...Katie. I was 100% positive that Tina would throw the match to allow Katie to advance to the next round. But Katie was and is just too far out of her element and I think it would have looked bad for both of them had Tina held back. Nothing against Katie, but she never really did much in the game. She was always near the bottom during team and individual challenges. So, I'm guessing that prior to the Redemption Island Challenge, she probably told her Mom to go all out because she knew that people still left in the game, as well as Survivor fans, would have eaten her alive had she backed into the next round. So, it's better that it played out the way it did.

Damn entertaining episode that saw Hayden getting sent to RI. Yay! Can't stand this knucklehead. How he has managed to last this long in the game of Survivor is a mystery. Moving on. I really don't see how Monica can win the game if she makes it into the final 3. The pattern for Survivor is that there is always someone on the Jury that will ask one or all three...."what Big Move did you make in the game that makes you deserving of my vote?". This could have been that 'Big Move' for her had she voted Gervase out. She didn't. Now she will be looked at as more as Tyson's lap dog because she is playing HIS game and not HERS.

Why aren't you watching a real reality show like Naked and Afraid

I've watched a couple of episodes. You get past the nekkid part real quick and get into the reality of surviving. I'd be dead the first 6 hours. I'm just saying.

I watched the first episode when it premiered and I did not like it one bit. It's not even a game if you think about it. There is no strategy involved. It's just basically...survive the elements and try not to play with yourself in front of your "teammate". Not liking it might have to do with the two "contestants" in the premiere episode, but I prefer Survivor's game-play over anything else. Having said that, if Naked has gotten better and you think it's worth giving it another shot, give me an episode that you liked and I'll try again.
