Survivor Heroes V Villains – A Blindside, And Some Bad Strategy
Coach needs to throw away all his self-help books, so he will stop spewing new age verbiage from his mouth. Having said that I am enjoying watching him and still cannot decide whether I like him or not. If I was on that island with him he would probably irritate the hell out of me.
He was having a slight nervous breakdown after last week’s tribal council, where Sandra accused him of not doing enough around camp. But a debrief with Tyson who told him to tone down the weirdness and a back slap from Boston Rob did the trick, and he was back to giving himself some self love. No not like that there are camera’s around.
Speaking of villain’s is Courtney anorexic? She is just so bony. Also she is doing a very good job of flying under the radar again. I am not a fan of hers.
The reward challenge was a mix of baby oil, slip and slide, and basketball. James looked like robocop all oiled up.
The villains won the baby oil challenge, and took home the rewards, or equipment to make life easier on the island courtesy of Sears.
It was hilarious when Russell nearly hyperventilated when he realised he had dropped an immunity idol clue in front of the whole tribe. The villain’s tribe made an agreement that anyone who went looking for it would be the first one voted out.
Of course an immunity idol to Russell is like smack to a junkie he could not resist. He said he was going for a walk, however he did not fool Rob, who sent Sandra out on a recce who busted him.
With the heroes tribe it was a different matter they all went looking for it, and Tom found it. He was not subtle enough and Amanda saw him put it in his sock.
When they lost the immunity challenge it was either Colby or Tom to go. Tom thought he had created a new alliance when he suggested Candice should go.
Cirie quickly slapped her alliance around to ensure the targets were still firmly on Colby and Tom’s backs.
Tom and Colby then stitched up a plan to play the idol and vote Cirie off all hinging on JT’s vote, and it worked. It was the show’s first blindside and Cirie was voted out.
Meanwhile Coach was forming a cult over on the villains tribe, indoctrinating his team mate with his dragonslayer chi.
Whilst this was going on Russell was looking for the immunity challenge, and he found it. “Here we go again” he crowed.
The reward challenge was interesting. James was dominating in collecting the “balls” until he did his knee in.
In fact I thought the heroes were the villains in this challenge with JT upending Coach nearly landing him on his head, and Rupert ramming Jerri’s head into the wood. I really don’t like these wrestling challenges as they are so unsafe.
The reward was a chocolate feast, I don’t think the male members of the team were as excited by it as the girls were.
Russell told Parvati about finding the immunity idols, who was pretty excited about it. He told her he would let her ride on his coat tails, she promptly said “I don’t ride anyone’s coat tails.” They then decided to rope Coach into their alliance, who is a such a douche. He was so honoured that they are trusting him to be loyal he played Sir Lancelot to Russell’s King Arthur, and bent down before him much to Russell’s enjoyment.
Another immunity challenge, another Heroe’s lead blown when they get into the puzzle part of the challenge. So it was off to tribal council again.
James was gunning for Tom, and Tom was going for James. TJ and Candice looked like they were going to back Tom, but chickened out in the end and voted Tom off.
I think the heroes have made a big blunder, because if James knee does not improve he will be a liability in the challenges.
Next week it looks like the inevitable Rob and Russell showdown is going to occur. As Rob said ” “Russell, he’s like a Hobbit on crack. Somebody like that, the thing to do is get rid of ‘em right away.” However, Russell has the immunity idol which does give him the advantage in this tussle.
