Survivor Samoa – I Think The Last Chance To Get Rid Of Russell Was Tonight
Seriously the only one playing the game is Russell – the rest are just like lemmings falling in behind him. Jaison and Mike needed to make a play on tonight’s episodes and attempt to get rid of Russell in the one of the tribal councils.
Points to Monica for stirring the pot once she realised her head was on the chopping block, but two supposedly intelligent men Jaison, and Mick have done no strategising and just relying on Russell to take them to the final two. What I don’t get with all the yapping why Jaison and Mick have not compared what Russell is telling each of them. Also wouldn’t you want to take the control of the game out of his hands?
Also can’t any of them count once Monica and Brett are voted out and it is final five, then they would have to start voting each other out. Brett put a spanner in the plan by winning two immunity challenges in a row, so the alliance of four plus Shambo had to decide who to flick sooner than expected.
Jaison and Russell decided to vote out Shambo, Mick was looking a bit wary, but was not going around talking to people to ensure that this was what was really was going on. He even said in the episode “I know he is playing the game hard”.
I suspect now they are thinking that if they take Russell with them into the top two the jury won’t vote for him. However recent juries have shown they are more likely to vote for the person “playing the game”.
Anyway Mick is a complete dud as one of the supposed Alpha males out there. He is not strategising, he is not winning reward challenges, and yet again he could not complete a puzzle challenge.
I think Russell is going to have a hard time winning with any of the four that are left, as none of them have ruffled any feathers, whereas Shambo had pissed off all her old tribe mates. I thought it ironic in her exit interview she said that it “was great the Foa Foa tribe stuck together, as that is how it should be”. What was THAT all about considering her tribe was decimated because of her disloyalty.
Natalie is very sweet but I was not getting the prayer warrior chat particularly in the reward challenge where the prize was a village feast and sleepover. Now I know that people have different concepts of what God is, but is it right that a God is looking out for someone deliberately starving themselves for one million dollars? Though being a complete hypocrite I can neither confirm nor deny whether I may have said today “Dear God let me win the $30 million tonight in Oz Lotto”! To be honest I think there are worthier things to wish for in the world.
Survivor quote of the night goes to Jeff Probst when after Shambo had revealed she had had her mullet hair do since 1986 he said “Now that is dedication to a hair style.”
