Survivor Samoa – Episode 2 – It Was All Foa Foa Tonight
Jeff Probst was making a big deal about Ben being the first Survivor contestant ever to be kicked out of a challenge, but has there been any other episode on Survivor where the whole episode was based on showing just one tribe?
If the whole episode was based in Foa Foa (yellow team) camp, the person who captured most of the air time was the psychotic Russell.
Russell who I wish I could say was deluded in bragging about controlling the whole tribe, but unfortunately he does. Yes he is more evil then Johnny Fairplay, who was at least amusing. Russell is a psychopathic bully, whose teammates are falling in behind him, and are not rocking the vote as they are seeing that they are the ones that are being voted out. It just reminds me a bit of real life where sometimes those bully boys or girls are the ones to prosper, because people are too scared to speak up.
What was even more galling was he found the immunity idol. I will give him props for looking everywhere for it.
Tonight there was a combined immunity and reward challenge, and it was a rough one. Three members of each tribe were put in the centre of the ring with the aim of getting the “balls” to their teamates up on platforms to try and shoot goals. Personally I thought the wrestling was far too physical, particularly when they combined the men and women in the ring.
It was like Rollerball without the rules, and in the end host Jeff Probst had to give a warning, Ben did not heed this and tripped someone and he was eliminated. This meant the purple team won easily.
The 30 seconds we did get of the purple team was Shambo using the newly acquired fishing gear to not catch any fish, and breaking the snorkel. To say she was not popular around her camp would be an understatement.
Betsey the police officer was a sitting duck, once Mike was eliminated because of dodgy low blood pressure. For the record he recovered within the hour back at Survivor base camp.
Betsey tried to whip up some coup against Ben, but even though he woke up everyone at camp with his hammering he was still safe and she was eliminated.
Here is an interview did with Betsey on Digital Spy
