Jonathan must surely see by now that he may be in trouble with his tribe because he tells us it is MUY IMPORTANTE that they win the challenge today.
Speaking of the challenge, it’s time! Jeff takes back the immunity Turkey from Ave and then gets down to the rules for this challenge. One member from each tribe will launch balls (hehe he said balls) from a giant slingshot into the field where their tribemates are waiting. Said tribemates have to try and bag the balls in their handy dandy ball bagging nets. They do NOT have to only catch their own balls; any ball will score a point. First tribe to five points wins immunity, losers vote someone out at tribal.
Once again Tandang will have to sit out two people to make things even. Malcolm and Skupin play rock, paper, scissors to see which of them will sit out (Skupin) while Ave is the first one to announce that she’ll be sitting out.
Are you fucking kidding me?
No Jeff, she’s not. And while I think it’s pretty pathetic that she is sitting out again, once more I have to point out that it’s within the rules for her to do so. So Jeff getting all pissy about it is ridiculous. Maybe next year you should think about changing the whole sitting out of challenges rule.
I’d rather harass her now
We know, Jeffrey, we know.
Lisa and Denise will be the ball launchers while the rest of the tribes face off as follows: Malcolm vs. Carter, Juggs vs. Katie, Artis vs. Penner, and Pete vs. Jeff. On the first launch Penner catches a ball while the other goes uncaught. Kalabaw 1-Tandang 0.
The next launch brings catches for both Juggs and Pete, so now Tandang leads by one. The third launch results in misses all around, specifically Katie and Carter who were the closest to the balls and whose lack of ball connection Probst has no issue calling out.
Have I told you lately that Katie sucks? Well, Carter does too!
In the next three rounds Jeff is the only one able to catch balls so now Kalabaw leads with four balls to Tandang’s two. If they catch the next ball Kalabaw will win. Meanwhile, Jeff is barking at Katie to put her hand on the pole.
Ew, Jeff, I don’t want to touch your pole.
Skupin yells out to Lisa to launch the balls directly to Malcolm. (He knows Carter is no match for Captain Ponytail). Sure enough, this seems to do the trick and Malcolm catches the next two balls, tying up the game at four balls each while Jeff continues to call out Katie’s poor performance. I guess it doesn’t matter that plenty of other people are having ball trouble as well, right Jeffrey?
