…. And we’re back… at camp that is. Kass just flipped to help vote out Sarah and Spencer is being a little baby about not getting his way and saying goodbye to Jefra instead. He has some not so nice things to say to Kass as does later on, Morgan. I can see how dead do nothing weight could suck the fun out of this game, laying around expecting everyone else to serve them, and Morgan is about as dead weight as they come. Thinks it’s okay because she’s ‘cute’. I just want to hold her face in a shallow puddle somewhere. This rubs Kass the wrong way because she has this nutty idea that people should pull their own weight during the down times. Of course in Morgan’s eyes, Kass is just this bitter old woman and hates Morgan, because she’s pretty. Don’t worry Morgan… Soon you’ll be that old hag that all the young chicas are making fun of.. One day soon, you’ll wake up, your nipples will be bouncing off of your knees, Your boobs will look like mashed potatoes in a pair of tube socks, and you’ll wonder what the hell happened. It’s time to bring back the asshat pair designations.
Morgan, is on the far right of the right pic above and she is asshat1 this week. I suspect if I were spending any time with this chick, I would be bored silly in about half a heartbeat. Joining her as asshat2, is Spencer, bottom left center picture.
This week was more challenge play than anything else. Not really a lot of strategery going on because there were two challenges. One being a reward challenge that the episode gets into pretty quick, and then the immunity challenge. We’ll start of course with the reward challenge.
This is a multistep challenge where teams, are racing to put together a puzzle. They have to run across this obstacle course to the beach and drag a large crate and themselves up a steep incline. Once there tho of them can start working the puzzle. The crate contains the final piece and the crate cannot be opened until all of the other pieces are put together.
Teams are random draw and are, Orange – Jeremiah, Jefra, LJ, Morgan, and Spencer. Purple – Woo, Kass, Tony, Trish, and Tasha. It’s a pretty even run until Woo slips on one of the balance beams and has to start that part all over again, allowing the orange team to slip ahead. All 5 team members must complete each segment together, so, the purple team never really recovers and Orange wins the reward challenge. The reward is they are taken to an Outback type streak dinner with all the trimmings. Orange team goes off to enjoy that while Purple goes back to camp empty handed. LJ and Spencer did the puzzle for orange, Kass and Woo were working it for Purple. Doesn’t matter, you already know the result.
While back at camp, alone, a few of the purple team decide to go blindly look for that special power hidden idol. No one finds it of course but that doesn’t stop them from looking. Oh yes, Tony was trying to feel out where Kass stands after she previously flipped to his side to get rid of Sarah.. Tony, she doesn’t call herself Chaos Kass for no reason.. Take what you get, be happy with it, but watch your back. She’s there to play too. Meanwhile, at the lunch, Spencer decides he’s made a pig of himself and decides to use his napkin to clean up a bit. Out of the napkin falls a piece of paper. What ever could it be? Why yes, it’s a clue to that hidden idol which Spencer pockets immediately hiding it from his team mates.
It’s pouring rain and the reward winners come staggering and belching back to camp and almost immediately, Spencer goes off to read that idol clue and try to find it. Right away Woo figures out what’s going on and decides to stalk Spencer to see if He can find that idol. Spencer thinks he’s alone on this hunt but Woo has gone into Ninja Stealth mode, being all sneaky and stuff. He takes his pants off because he has to go into the water to find the idol, neatly folds them, withe clue safely tucked inside them, or so he thinks. Woo sees this, takes the clue, and tosses Spencer his pants after he realizes that Woo is there. As Woo hauls ass back to camp, Spencer realizes what has happened. Woo has the clue.
Woo gets back to camp with the clue and shares it with Tony. Now the mad dash is on to find that idol and all 10 players are looking for it. One of them says in TH interview that whoever finds it, everyone is going to know who has it because they’ll all be there when it happens. Spencer and Kass kind of make peace because they are standing right next to each other while looking for that idol. Spencer wishes she would just go away because he’s found it and doesn’t want her to see him grab it. He manages to get it however without her seeing it. So the idol is found but we don’t know yet what it’s magical powers are.
Back at camp, again, we are trying to figure out who to vote out. Team Tony is trying to figure what will happen if Spencer has that hidden idol. It doen’t really matter much because we haven’t done the immunity challenge yet.
There isn’t a lot of action to this one, just a bunch of people standing around and Probst doing his play by play bit. Within these frames, players are standing on a beam on their tip toes. Doing so while pressing a block of wood with their heads to the top of the frame. Last one standing, wins immunity for the night. This goes on for about 90 minutes. Kass was the first one out and eventually it dwindled down to Spencer and Tasha. All the while, all of these people were probably wishing Probst would STFU. I know I did.. This was Spencer’s night because he won the challenge after Tasha was eliminated.
So now Spencer not only has that idol, that we still don’t know what it’s for, he also has immunity from winning the challenge. That pisses away any notion of him playing that hidden idol. Previous to the challenge, they were hoping for a split vote in order to force something to happen.
Pre-Tribal and Tribal
Two names are floated at this point.. Spencer’s faction wants to get rid of the biggest threat, Tony. Kass’ faction, which for now, includes Tony, wants to get rid of the do nothing dead weight, Morgan. The players head off to Tribal and once there, it’s the usual setup.. Jury of one (Sarah) brought in and the Probsting begins. For me, the biggest thing that came out of this is that it’s still brains vs beauty. It seems everyone is sick of Morgan not pulling her weight around camp and she is called out for it.. Her biggest move right now is that if she’s pissed at someone they won’t get her vote so they may not want her on the jury (Kass). Someone likened her to an old sick dog that no one has the heart to do anything with so they keep her around out of sympathy.. Even Probst gets in on the act by suggesting that she doesn’t have to do much because she’s ‘cute’. Not the first time he’s gone there. She’s quite happy with the fact that she can wave the girls in someone’s face (LJ and Jerimiah) and be taken care of as she deserves to be.. Puke. Let’s vote and not waste anymore time with this girl.
They vote, Probst collects and organizes them for the reveal. He polls for the idol and of course, Spencer doesn’t play it. The votes are read and it comes to a 4:4 tie between Tony and Morgan.. A 9th vote is read for Morgan.. 10th vote read, Morgan. She’s the second member of the jury. Couldn’t have happened to a bigger bitch. Tony got the message he isn’t secure either.. In her exit interview Morgan was just as bitchy as she was during the entire episode. Below is the voting history..
See you next week – MTH
