This week, I found myself questioning just how smart the majority of these people are. I’d like to believe that only the strong and intelligent can play Survivor, but after this episode – I’m really starting to have my doubts.
The Malakal tribe returned from tribal council after voting off Ami, and it seemed as if the tribe had trouble getting over the guilt. Erik on the other hand, was thrilled to be the only remaining fan on the Malakal tribe after fighting so hard to get there. The tribe hoped that the next day would lead to a merge.
At the Airai camp, Jason and Eliza, both feeling like outsiders, began forming an alliance; they figured if they could get Ami on their side, they would be sitting pretty. Jason also told Eliza that he had the immunity idol. Eliza was happy but little did she know that two things would soon crash down on her. One: Ami had been voted out. Two: Jason had a fake immunity idol planted by Ozzy. Eliza also tried to strengthen her bonds with Parvati. However, Parvati was just more convinced that Eliza should go next.
I never liked Parvati. I didn’t like her when I saw her in Survivor; Cook Islands, and I certainly don’t like her now. At first it was because she was being stupid and using her looks to get by. This year, she’s pretty much doing the same thing, only she looks down on everyone else and assumes everyone should just jump to her. Let me tell you, it’s that kind of stuff that will kill you, sister. Even if she made it to the final two, so many people will dislike her that no one will vote for her.
The teams received tree mail, telling them to pack all the belongings they wanted to take with them to the merge. Now when they said all the belongings, they really took that seriously. They even packed the flags of their old tribes before finally leaving to meet the other tribe. At the beach, there was a feast waiting for them and everyone rejoiced. Some were excited to see friends; others were excited to make new alliances. Eliza was greatly disappointed to find it had been Ami, not Erik, who had been voted out. This had put a huge hole in her plan.
