Survivor Fiji: Blackmail or Betrayal
As we begin, Dreamz has some splaining to do but he does a rather ham-handed job of rationalizing what happened to the whole Four Horsemen alliance. I'm not quite sure what he said but he is certainly proud of his scheming. Maybe he thinks they believe him because he believed the other alliance members when they explained why he was the only one who voted for Mookie.
Tonight's reward challenge was an invitation to injury. An invitation Boo readily responded to. Has anyone notice that since the end of Luxury Moto, Boo's gotten majorly cranky? His natural tendency to being accident prone is exacerbated without a soft hammock to recuperate in. Life's hard without a couch.
It's a also delight for Stacy fans tonight because they get to see her in the shower, plugging the Olay shower gel and giving Earl a generous look at all of her assets. At the reward Alex, Stacy, Dreamz and Earl have an awkward meal. Alex seems to hold everyone else in such disdain that can't even let the game go for a minute. Always thinking is one thing, always thinking about a way to screw over your fellow man is another.
When they return, Mookie, who truly has had the worst luck of this entire season is angry and decides to go on an idol hunt. His first stop, Yau-Man's bag. Armed with that knowledge, they start scheming and dreaming of going out "Scarface" style. They'll tell Yau-Man they know about the idol. And he'll do what exactly? Answer, not much.
They confront Yau-Man who is a bit nonplussed by the whole situation. Aw, Stacy says "her heart is hurting right now" when she hears that Alex and Mookie went through his things and tried to strong arm him. Nice move, jackasses.
Tonight's challenge involves a rather fun game of battleship. It's not really much of a skills game. Sure there is some memory involved but it is basically luck for most folks. Stacy is victorious.
At tribal, Jeff is on fire tonight, chiding Alex and Mookie for the idol raid but also cautioning Yau-Man on his bravado. And then we have Dreamz, who never thinks before speaking but I don't think that anyone is really listening. Alex turns Nostradamus saying that past actions can foretell the future. But what kind of action is it when Alex votes for Mookie? Apparently it's the kind of action that gets Mookie voted off. Ouch.
Next week: Is there anything Alex can do to forestall the inevitable? Get the old Moto alliance back on track perhaps?
Another solid 5 for this week. I'm taking off points for the totally random immunity challenge. I think the challenges should have been reversed. Immunity should be more about skill or endurance or strength than reward should be in my opinion.
