Last week, JTia from brains was sent home, leaving that tribe as a 3 some. That night at camp, Spencer is thanking the other two women, Kass, and Tasha, for making the right choice. Choosing someone strong who could win challenges over future Loyalty (after a merge) in JTia. The woman dumped all their food, Didn’t sound very tribe loyal to me. The next day treemail, promises a brutal challenge with a sweet reward. Let’s get to it..
Drop your buffs everyone, it’s time to mix things up. If things keep going the way they are, the brains tribe will eat itself and disappear. Lets see if I have this straight.. LJ and Jefra from Beauty, are now teamed up with most of the brawn tribe, minus Mary (the female cop). She is sent to what is left of the brains and the other 3 beauties. Got that? Don’t worry if you don’t there’s a chart with vote counts and tribe colors at the end of this recap. There is some Probsting that goes on.. Sarah who was on Brawn but got stuck with most of the misfits (Brain and half of beauty) feels like she lost her entire tribe and now has to start over. That’s the point Sarah, to screw up your entire game. Don’t worry, you never had a real alliance anyway. Tasha feels lucky that now there are some real players with her tribe… Jefra on the other tribe is ecstatic that she’s now with the members of the winning tribe, Brawn. Cliff says it’s a game changer.. No shit Sherlock… Lets get to the other reason we’re here. The reward challenge..
First the reward… Check it out and get out your toothbrushes people.. Doughnuts, coffee, pastries, cookies, all kinds of goodies. The game.. One member from each team will wrap themselves around a pole and hold on for dear life while 2 members from the opposing team attempt to peel them off and drag them across the beach to a finish line. First team to do that twice, wins the cookies and stuff. Anyone watching this as I was probably couldn’t help wishing it was Carlton being drug on her bony ass across that beach.. No? Just me? Okay.. In the first round, Linsay and Tasha are the pole riders.. Peeling Linsay is Morgan and Sarah.. Peeling Tasha from the other pole, Jefra and Trish.. Tasha wouldn’t let go of her post so Jefra and Trish failed to drag her across the beach. I think Morgan and Sarah beat the hell out of Linsay getting her to break loose but they eventually did manage to get her across the beach to score a point. Next round Cliff is defending against Spencer and Jerimiah. Alexis is defending against LJ and Trish.. LJ rips Alexis off of her post and drags her across the beach. Cliff, dude is six foot fifteen inches.. Never gets pulled off by Spencer and Jerimiah.. Tied 1 to 1, next round decides it.. Same 3 with Cliff vs Spencer and Jerimiah.. They make a little more progress this time but not before, Tony and Linsay manhandle Sarah and drag her across the beach. I will say that Sarah put up a good fight. Solana wins reward, which is the team without the ‘brains’ (Careful how you interpret that).. Spencer says it’s nice to trade the moms for the hot chicks but it sucks to keep losing. The only ‘mom’ type, I’ve seen on that tribe ever, is Kass and she’s the only one worth anything, Spencer.
Back at the camps, it isn’t lost on me, the scene of Tony (the cop) eating doughnuts.. I am sure if the other team had won, I would be saying the same thing about Sarah. LJ and Jefra have noticed they aren’t part of the cool kids club in their new tribe. LJ has an idol but he doesn’t want to play it. He and Trish are both from Boston so she figures she’s tight with him.. She has a Mrs Robinson crush on the guy and even giggles like a 50 year old school girl. It’s really kind of sickening.. Sorry but every time I see her, I think of this character..Someone even mentioned the possibility of her twerking.. NOT something I care to see. Anyway, she wants Cliff gone so she’s hoping to split her own original tribe to try and make that happen.. Meanwhile at the other camp, The beauty, specifically Morgan is spilling all her original tribe’s secrets. Suddenly the Brainiacs feel superior as if they may actually have a chance in this game. Only one thing stands in their way at this point.. Immunity and Tribal council. Plus there is still the merge to get to so all these people that came from other tribes better be careful about what bridges they burn. Sarah is the odd one out in this particular tribe as everyone else, has somebody they’ve been with since the beginning.
Let’s get to the immunity challenge… The object of this game is to use a log as a battering ram to break through two wooden walls. It doesn’t really matter how they get through the walls, but they must be carrying the log when they go though. Once they do that, the log has a maze carved into it that they must solve to then use it to ring a gong. First to do that, wins immunity.. This is a 6vs6 challenge so each team has to sit out one. Clearly the odds are stacked in the Purple tribe’s favor because most of it is the Brawn tribe. It doesn’t quite go their way as the Orange tribe, the one that now carries the Brains, actually wins this challenge.. Purple (Solana) is going to council. Pre-tribal chatter is much like that of pre-game chatter.. Except now we learn that Tony, Woo, and Lindsey, are NOT on board with voting off one of their own, Cliff, but want to get rid of LJ. Cliff, just seems clueless. Completely confused yet? Good let’s get to council..
Tribal begins and Probst tells the members of the old brawn tribe to get their torches because they haven’t been there yet. LJ and Jefra have. Probsting begins and he leads them through the conversations they all had back at camp. Maybe it’s game experience, I don’t know but he always seems to know exactly what questions to ask and who to ask to flush out the actual plan. It comes down to both LJ and Cliff being thrown under the tribal fire, much to Cliffs’ surprise because he just thought he was safe. Once they vote however, it’s he thet is not. It takes a 4-3 vote minimum to vote someone out at this point. Cliff is voted out but remember, going into tribal, they didn’t have the numbers to dump Cliff. So who is the other tribe traitor? Mr Reliable himself, Tony the Jersey cop.
Next week, kids, Francis Robinson, Trish, has some sort of meltdown or something like that and ole Probst has to intervene.. Should be good for a laugh..
