So. Here we are again, Gasmi. I’m really hoping that this week is a little more entertaining than last week’s episode because falling asleep in the middle of the show isn’t really productive for me!
Great. Now there’s drool all over the remote.
We pick up after last week’s tribal and Troyzan isn’t really happy that Jay got voted out. So he does what everyone this season seems to do when things aren’t going their way: he picks on Christina. Shockingly, Abitchia actually stands up for Christina! I know! I was shocked as well.
You know, when the season started I had dubbed him Douchezan. Then I sort of starting liking him so I stopped.
The return of the Douche.
It’s not that he’s mad, I get that. But picking on Christina is such a shit move, don’t you think? I mean, CRAP, how bad does it have to be for Abitchia to jump in and save the girl? We all know she hates her ass!! It’s really just sour grapes that the voting didn’t go his way. Go cry in our pillow, Douchezan.
This week’s reward challenge is a Survivor classic: the auction. YAY! I love the auction. I always think Jeff takes such sadistic pleasure in ending the auction before everyone has had a chance to get something. And you know with the rate that guys have been dropping, Jeff needs all the cheering up he can get!
Whoa Kim! I said CHEER him up, not GET him up!!!
Shhhhhh……mind your business
The ladies bid fast and loose, while Douchezan is holding out for something that’s going to help him in the game. Tarzan is saving his money to take home for car repairs. A round which brings letters from home up to the auction block has some surprising results. Well, I was surprised.
And then an advantage in the immunity challenge comes up to the block. It’s exactly what Douchezan has been waiting for. There’s only one person that has enough money to go against him at this point: Christina. Guess what? She wins it and single handedly ensures that his ass will be going home this week!
Yup. I’m a liar. That totally didn’t happen. Instead, she was completely wishy washy about the entire thing and basically let him walk away with it without putting up much of a fight. Was it to make up for letting him down in the last vote? That’s the first thing I thought of because REALLY? She coulda EASILY had it.
Anyway, the tribe is as annoyed as you’d expect them to be at the guy who they’re all gunning for gaining an advantage toward immunity. And he rubs it in big time. And now I sorta want to stop calling him Douchezan again. Even though he is sort of a dick. I don’t understand myself at all.
The immunity challenge involves knots, coconut beer pong, and coconutty tic tac toe. The winner isn’t much of a surprise, and I have got to give it up for the subsequent maneuvering afterward. Obviously I’ll wait for the full recap to go into all those gory details, but let’s just say, it was nice to see someone really playing the game.
Come join me in a couple of days and we’ll discuss the Douche/Troy phenomenon, why Christina is everyone’s whipping boy, and probability of a complete Jeff Probst break down in the next two weeks.
See you there!
