Survivor Caramoan – That Was One Of The Cruelest Eliminations Ever
Poor Brenda really did have reason to be sobbing in her post-elimination interview, it was one of the cruelest eliminations ever.
Not only did her core alliance turn against her including Dawn the woman who had basically pledged her life to her after she had rescued her retainer from the pond. But she had also sacrificed a meal with her father and sister so four of her other tribemates could spend time with their loved ones and gorge themselves. This is no small sacrifice when you are starving and isolated.
Maybe Dawn was a little bit bitter that she missed out on it as well. After the reunion with the loved one, there was the usual challenge with them with Brenda and her father winning. She was asked to pick one person to take with her and she selected Dawn and her husband.
However there was a twist. After it was revealed their second love one was also out there she was told she could go or she could send the other four to the BBQ with their loved ones. She sent them.
Dawn howled and howled and then she realised Brenda had probably gained enormous good will from the others because of this manoeuvre as of course did Cochran. This pair are really playing strategy. By the way how have Dawn’s teeth remained so white out there.
What was interesting was in the immunity challenge Dawn and Brenda were the only two left hanging on, and Dawn tried to cut a deal that Eddie would be voted out and Brenda should give up so Dawn “I have never won one” would know what it felt like. Brenda declined but ended up losing anyway. Quite frankly there was not much in the deal for her anyway.
In the end their fear of her winning won out over common decency and they voted Brenda out of the game.
The highlight of the episode was when Jeff Probst announced to the contestant’s and loved ones they would be doing a challenge together, Cochran’s mum looked over and mouthed “Sorry”.
Survivor fans will be happy to know the finale is being fast tracked from the US and will screen on GO channel on Monday night at 8.30pm. Kudos to NINE and GO Channel for how they have screened Survivor this season.
