Survivor Samoa – Episode 3 and 4 – Russell Is Still Having It All His Own Way
One little niggle I have with this very good season of Survivor is the editing in tonight’s two episodes. I thought the way the beginning of the the episode’s were cut indicated who was going to be going to tribal council.
If all you see all episode is Foa Foa, it is a fair indication they will be having to vote, and same again for the Gula tribe in the other episode.
Tonight was the usual scenes of Russel saying how he was the controlling the tribe, and the only one playing the game. Now Ben as meant to be an evil prick but we barely got to see anything of his behaviour. Another thing I have noticed this season is the combining of the reward and the immunity challenges, instead of having two challenges per episode.
Anyway Foa Foa lost the first immunity challenge which involved swimming and wrestling. I loved the way each tribe was delivered swim suits, is this a new sponsor for the show?
Foa Foa lost their third challenge in a row, and Jaison was wanting Ben out because of his racial comments, whereas Russell wanted to keep him in, and vote out Ashley the Spa Sales person.
Russell who is forming alliances with everyone was trying to convince the doctor to vote out Ashley before Ben. In the end Russell decided to go with the pack and not stick his neck out and Ben was turfed.
The following episode it was a refreshing change to see the Gula tribe. What did we learn? That they have not formed any alliances yet, and that Shambo lost a chicken. This chick is likeable but cursed, she broke the snorkel last week. When they lost the immunity challenge they had to decide whether to vote for the lazy around camp (Yasmine) or not fabulous at challenges.
They voted out Yasmine who was surprised she was a target.
Here is an exit interview with Ben.
And here is an exit interview with Yasmin.
And finally Russell picking a few cushions over a tarp, that decision is going to come back and bit him on the proverbial.
