Pete just sits back and watches all this go down, telling us that he’s actually the one that went and got the clue and planted by Juggs’ bag. His goal is to create chaos in the tribe. Looks like it’s working so far! In the minicap I was toying with idea of switching my season crush from Malcolm to Pete, but after your advice and further reflection, I’ve decided to stick with Malcolm.
I can tell that this is devastating to Pete.
I think it was just the joy of seeing someone try to something out there that got me going. I’m just so sick of the Boobs/Booty alliance of crazy and manshakes and losers that the excitement may have gone to my head a little!
Meanwhile at Kalabaw, Jeff has decided that Penner is worthy of a manshake after all. It helps that Penner has the idol. For Penner’s part, he knows that Jeff is in good with others in the tribe and that for now it makes sense for them to work together to get further in the game.
Holy crap! I was beginning to think that Carter was a mute!! It’s also been driving me nuts trying to figure out who the dude looks like and this episode it finally clicked that he reminds of Spicoli. I feel so much better now that that’s figured out!
So Spicoli has decided that he’d like to align with Penner as well. Looks like he’s figured out that Penner and Jeff are teaming up and he thinks he has a better chance going with the guys than aligning with the girls. Penner welcomes him to the boy’s club.
While this is going on, the ladies are having a little pow wow of their own. Dawson is fairly certain that the guys are teaming up, and Dana says that their tribe used to be a democracy, but now the guys are trying to call all the shots.
Dana says they should team up against the guys and then after the merge get ALL the ladies together against the men. Dana thinks they don’t need the guys and women naturally feel more comfortable around each other. Suuuuure….that’s why all girl alliances ALWAYS work out, right?
At Matsing, Russell tells Denise and Malcolm that he would be really disappointed to go home before the merge. He thinks it sucks that half their tribe is gone, but also thinks it’s not a HUGE deal because those people weren’t helping much anyway. Ummm……does he not remember his abysmal performance? Malcolm thinks that Russell lacks self-awareness and the only reason he’s still around is because they’ve sucked so much and they need muscle mass right now.
Russell knows he’s probably in trouble given the fact that neither Denise nor Malcolm has talked strategy with him lately. So he decides to look for the hidden immunity idol. He looks and he looks and he looks. And he doesn’t find it. He says that the frustrating part of the whole thing is that he has a feeling he’s already walked by it about a million times.
