Did Ozzy's Big Gamble Last Week Pay Off on 'Survivor: South Pacific'? (VIDEO)

'Survivor: South Pacific'Last week, Ozzy made a potentially huge move on 'Survivor: South Pacific' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS). He sacrificed himself to Redemption Island with hopes of eliminating Christine so that Savaii could come in 6-6 against Upolu when the merge hit. They needed him to win and the merge to happen for the first part of the plan to work.


If Ozzy was seeking his own sort of redemption with this plan, he certainly got it. He handily defeated Christine, who seemed frazzled by the heightened competition. It's interesting to speculate if you think Cochran could have beaten her. The thing is, though, Christine would have surely sided with Savaii anyway upon her return.

Maybe sending Cochran there and letting him get beaten would have worked out better. Because even though Ozzy won and the merge happened, their little ploy to trick Upolu into thinking Cochran had played the Idol against Ozzy failed.

The only thing they did believe was that Cochran was on the outs with his tribe. It's one of the key rules of 'Survivor.' If you want people to have your back going into a merge, you need to treat them well no matter what you think of them. Savaii treated Cochran like crap and so he flipped on them, and then they continued dumping on him.

It should make for an interesting few weeks, as we'll see whether Cochran continues siding with Upolu and picks off his former tribe. Of course, then he'll really need to do some fancy maneuvering, looking for fractures within Savaii, if he doesn't want to play for seventh place.

Ozzy overplayed his hand at Redemption and then the bullies continually picked on Cochran.
