Survivor Samoa – Funniest Two Episodes Ever?
Oh my God what is happening to me I was barracking for Laura NOT to win the immunity challenge in episode one tonight, so Russell’s plan to eliminate her would occur. Also I was laughing so hard when I saw Russell found the immunity idol for a second time without reading a clue.
Seriously are the other players so lazy or dumb that they just don’t wonder where Russell is or what he is up to? The camp cannot be that big as he was searching most of it.
Also there is no way I would go to Mick the doctor for a diagnosis. He has shown he is absolutely incapable of doing puzzles. He fumbled around on the first episode’s immunity challenge when it was his for the taking. I am not seeing much signs of intelligence from him or law student Jaison.
So it was game on in the tribal council, Russell’s side was now voting for Kelly, and the Galu tribe were gunning for Russell and weren’t they floored when he pulled out the immunity idol out of his pocket again and said “I ain’t finished playing just yet”. And there I was cheering him on.
I must say I thought the editing of the pulling out of the votes was a bit suss. We all know they place them in the bucket in the order they want Jeff Probst to pull them out to create suspense. But the bucket was bought across, Russell pulled out the Idol, and then there were seven straight votes for him. So either Russell had worded up the producers he was going to use it, or they took the bucket away to rearrange the votes.
The looks on the Galu tribe faces were priceless, and Laura the Christian looked psychopathic. She said, “He just stirred up a whole lot of hell, that is what he did”.
It was one of the best tribal councils ever. Russell was gloating saying “this must be my best piece of work ever”.
Episode two saw Galu being extremely peeved and bitter. Also I am starting to like Natalie a lot, she is definitely pulling her weight what with killing a rat, and swinging around in the reward challenge picking up those flags like she was from Cirque De Soleil.
The immunity idol was AGAIN coming back into play, and Russell thought if he could get the clue that he could fine it for a third time. Oh and yes he did. He saw the size of the rock of the mobile they were plugging endlessly on the show, and he went back and told his mates the size and shape and they all started looking.
Jaison started picking up rocks the size of golf balls (RR rolls eyes at him again), hello he told you it was at least 20 cm long.
Anyway Dave was tailing Russell to see if he was going to find it, however Russell shook him off and ran back to a place he had previously been, and there it was Russell had found his third immunity idol. I must confess at this point I was laughing my head off.
So then there were all sorts of wheeling and dealings prior to tribal council, with the Galu members deciding to vote Natalie out, and the Foa Foa tribe plus Shambo were going to vote for Laura. This was going to make it a five all draw.
At this stage Galu started to strategise, and as John implied this is always a negative thing. Monica was trying to throw John under a bus, and then they told John they were going to throw him under a bus. Which he was not happy with and said he was “not going to take a punch for Laura”, and this basically signed her death warrant.
The deal was in the event of a tied tribal council, there is another vote, and if the deadlock is not broken, there is a random draw of rocks to see who is eliminated. But it did not get that far, as Russell had sealed a deal with John that if it was tied he would switch his vote to Laura.
The look on Laura’s face was shock when she realised what had happened. And Dave and Monica looked like they had seen a ghost. Laura’s fire was snuffed out and Shambo and Russell were still in the game.
