For those who saw Survivor last night, you know what my feelings are about last night’s episode. Let’s just say, the results were frustrating in my opinion.
The newly merged Dabu tribe returned from voting Eliza out. Everyone found it humorous Eliza had played a fake immunity idol; however Ozzy the Fishman and Cirie realized the danger Ozzy faced now that everyone knew he had the immunity idol.
The next day they went straight to the challenge, no morning drama, no strategizing. The tribe mates would be separated into two teams and would race against each other through a net maze. Once they got across, they’d have to remember a pattern with Micronesian symbols. The tribe mates would then have to go back through the maze and put together a puzzle and form the same pattern. The first tribe that did this won a reward. The winning tribe would go to Yap, a Micronesian village, and enjoy a feast and tribal dancing. They would spend the night there and return to tribe in the morning.
Jeff went on to say they would be divided into two teams of four. That didn’t make much sense considering there were nine tribe mates. Jeff then revealed that there would be a schoolyard pick and the person not picked would go to Exile Island.
The teams were Jason, Ozzy, Erik, and Amanda verses Parvati, Alexis, Natalie, and James, with Cirie being sent to Exile Island.
It was obvious that the team of Jason, Ozzy, Erik, and Amanda was going to win. Ozzy, the Fishman and Jason were both the leading competitors, and Erik and Amanda fared well in challenges. Though James was good at physical challenges, he was far from Ozzy and Jason. However, in the end it was Amanda’s memory that sealed the win.
Jason, Ozzy, Erik, and Amanda went to the village and enjoyed a feast. There was dancing by the local children, which Erik enjoyed thoroughly. In fact, Erik seemed to enjoy the experience the most. He tried to learn the dance from a Micronesian teenager and enjoyed something called betel nut, which he later threw up. Overall, the experience looked like fun. I always like reading about different cultures and this one looked especially interesting.
