Here we are again, Castways. 10 down, 7 to go before the winner is crowned. LJ was blindsided last week and it was all Tony’s fault. Back at camp following the vote, Jefra wants to know who flipped. I think this is the most she has said all season.She doesn’t trust Tony anymore, I’m not sure why she ever did. Trish understands why he did what he did and still trusts him.. Silly girl.. Spencer says he’s not upset because LJ being gone works to his advantage. Now though, in his mind, Tony has to go before Tony does it to him.
The next morning, Tony is worried that he pissed everyone off so he disappears to the water well to build himself a spy shack so he can sit and listen to what the others are saying. While he’s testing it out along come Jefra and Trish. Trish still trusts him but knows he’s playing his game. She believes that the 5 remaining in their aliance are tight. Jefra is upset that LJ is gone and feels like she can’t trust anything Tony says. Tony TH says that he trusts Trish, Kass, and Woo. Can’t trust Jefra because she doesn’t trust him.
Two teams of 4 are playing for an afternoon BBQ at the Callao Cave. They have to row a boat out to each of those 4 crates and collect 2 boat paddles from each. First they have to row out to the end and then collect the paddles on the way back. Another rule is all 4 players have to be in the boat before they can go to the next crate. The teams are, Orange – Woo, Trish, Kass, and Tony. Purple – Spencer, Jeremiah, Jefra, and Tasha. Once they have all 8 of their paddles, they can go back to their platform, begin unmasking their paddles to to solve their puzzle, to win the game. Purple wins. This is bad news for Tony because the time away will give the others a chance to strategize without him and Jefra is one of that team. Remember, she’s pissed about losing her bestie, LJ.
Back at camp, Tony wants to talk strategy too, and is promising Kass her spot in this alliance. Plus, kill me now, he’s begun taling in third person in his THs. Maybe he always has, I don’t know. Trish is more interested in the limes and papayas she has found. She and Woo go to collect some, and after he shakes some papayas from the tree, he falls out of it on his ass. Not to worry folks, he isn’t hurt too bad.. Meanwhile, Tony is looking for that special power hidden idol.
The others are off at their reward of their BBQ lunch. They do a little strategy talk of their own and Spencer tries to get some sort of read on Jefra. They also get letters from home with their lunch. Jefra’s is from her mother and it basically tells her to leave her honest self at home and play to win. At the end of this, they have all decided that Tony has got to go, and that Jefra is now part of the anti-Tony alliance. We’ve been here before kids…
After this lunch, we get right to the immunity challenge. Players will start at the top of these ramps balancing a ball on a stick. At 10 minute intervals, they will move down the ramp and also hold the stick at a lower point on the handle. If the ball falls off or if they fall off, they are out of the game. When it all shakes out, Tasha wins immunity and is safe from elimination.
Pre Tribal and Tribal
I’m going to wrap this up here. The one thing I didn’t want to see happen, happened. Tony found the special power idol. The special power is it is only good to the one who finds it AND (this is the big one), it can be used After the vote is read. I get the feeling Tony is going to really be insufferable from this point forward. Tribal wasn’t all that exciting this week, as the episode really wasn’t. Spencer, Tasha, and Jeremiah are clearly at the bottom. Voters vote, Spencer plays his idol and gets no votes #wastedidol, and it is Jeremiah who is voted out..
