Survivor Caramoan – Episode Three – There Is Some Weird Strategy Going On
Who was eliminated last night held little tension but there was some interesting things occurring in both tribes.
But first I need viewers to help me out on one thing that is confusing me. The main alliance in the Fan’s tribe had decided to flush out Reynold’s immunity idol. Three votes were going to Hope, three to Reynold, and Shamar would also get three votes. This would mean there would have to be another vote with Hope probably eliminated.
What happened was they did vote three, three, three, but it was Eddie’s the other person in the hunk alliance whose name was written down, which resulted after the re vote in Hope being voted off.
It was the perfect opportunity to flush out the idol or get Reynold off. Now I know they want to keep him because he is strong in challenges and you need it to win them, but is he that much stronger than Eddie?
Or did Shamar blabbing to Hope make them worried? Obviously the vote for Eddie was on at that stage as Shamar hinted to her she should vote for Eddie to save herself. Which at the time I thought was strange. He was obviously worried about the three, three, three split or he has the hots for her. However Shamar strategising is a bit of joke he kind of muddled in and nearly stuffed it up for his alliance.
Laura was freaking out as she had performed so badly in the challenge that she considered swapping alliances to vote for Shamar as for some reason she thought Shamar was going to vote with his mortal enemy Reynold. Like that would happen.
Sherri who is desperate to keep Shamar in the alliance thinks she can control him as she is used to working with people like him.
She is a Fast Food Franchisee, which I thought what she was hinting at that she was used to working with not so bright people and probably from minority demographics. [Ed’s note: Fast food chains in the US employ a high percentage of Black and Hispanic people, I’m not turning all MKR on you.]
However she did clarify she that it was dealing with unmotivated adolescents.
I suspect if a Shamar type was working for her she would sack him pretty quickly. He admitted after that after his return from Iraq, he was a marine, that he had issues with alcohol and anger. It appears he still has issues with anger. This was confirmed by Allie in an interview (see a previous blog post). He even had some insight and said he did not want to be the angry black man on Survivor.
Over on the Favourites tribe Andrea appeared to be over scheming. She thought Corrine was too close to Malcolm and wanted her removed from the alliance and to bring Brandon Hantz. Did she not see the season Brandon was on he was all over the place with his alliances and could not keep his mouth shut. The reason he stayed in was because he was a threat to no one.
As usual Brandon oscillates in his view about it all thinking it gave him a part of a strong alliance, and then his paranoia set in and he was muttering about not trusting them. It is going to be interesting if Brandon, Special Agent Phil and Shamar make it to the merge. It could become the most unbearable camp ever.
Cochran appears to be going along with Andrea as he said he is not used to being surrounded by pretty girls in their underwear. However I think Andrea is stupid playing around so early with a solid alliance and she might find the knifes out for her.
