P: actually — yes. I even managed not to fast forward either of the challenges. I thought the reward one was incredibly suspenseful and challenging this week and I played along with the immunity challenge. What does Brenda do for a living again?
J: Miami dolphins cheerleader slash bartender
Yes I agree this week was another good installment in a mediocre season
The challenges are getting more intense, like the MTV series the Challenge…those games are messed up
P: I don’t think its the survivor team’s fault though
J: Why on earth did chase choose the women?
P: this was a poorly cast season with a few fantasticos
Chase is a MORON
I thought at first it was a good strategy
because they had some numbers and he could coast with them for a while and eventually win immunity challenges on his own
but as Brenda said — he has no balls
or in other words perhaps
J: Brenda knew right away he was killing his social game with that decision. He was like Kurt choosing the Girls team in the sing-off.
Brenda is so smart I just wish she was more aggressive
she’s Parvati lite
P: ::but Kurt can do no wrong::
Brenda is playing a very strong game, but I’m still hoping for a Brenda/Sash blindside. They are too cocky
and I’m sick of hearing how they are in charge. I’m a Fabio fan all the way
J: Fabio this episode showed SOME gameplay this week. Some strategy
He was thinking
I was shocked
P: ha agreed. maybe he’s not so vapid afterall…
let’s talk about what did Marty in
I will miss his hair, but not his scheming
J: His plans never really made any sense to me. He played really transparently.
I can’t imagine any situation where I would give another person my idol in exchange for my life
NO SENSE!!! it worked but I still am so confused
P: well I think once the merge happened Marty was lost and had to scramble, with the older folks he was QUEEN BEE
but as soon as he was on the outs his strategies made no sense. (i was still sore about Jimmy Johnson too)
J: Jimmy Johnson was the smartest move he made. He was the first from his tribe to make an actual cutthroat move. He needed that to assert his leadership.
P: but I looooooooooooooved him. he was adorable.
fine. I’m thinking with my heart. that’s why i can’t make it on survivor. I’d be the female Erik Reichenbach (hopefully less stupid)
Marty was eventually done in by his mouth and Jane’s likeability
It was like he was calling a Carebear a Nazi
P: hahahaha he was right though, but poorly timed. Jane will win it if she makes it to the end. But I honestly don’t think they needed her out right now
let’s talk about the 2 bigger shockers.
1) DAN IS STILL IN THE GAME
2) NAONKA IS A REAL HUMAN BEING
J: 1) I get the Dan thing…
he’s a genuine nice guy,
P: I hate players like Dan. he had no business getting on the show
J: he ruffles no feathers
WELL THATS TRUE
P: nice guys don’t wear 1200 (?) dollar shoes in the jungle
J: how did casting allow that
P: no clue. (though I’m still in shock over jimmy t…seriously what was going on in casting this season)
J: I’m surprised they didn’t cast a Jersey Shore type
in the younger tribe
SO Has Kelly purple had one confessional yet?
WHO IS KELLY PURPLE!
this is whathisface from Samoa.. Brett
J: Wow. Her lack of screentime is shocking…like what could it be… is she that boring of a human being?
Brett at least talked in tribal sometimes.
P: it’s that Naonka is crazy
let’s break them down one by one
who is in the best position right now?
J: Brenda hands down. She has no enemies. Anyone gunning for her would take out Naonka or sash first
P: Naonka will likely make it far just for being a terrible person. It’s like Fabio is the only one who sees it. I don’t understand
how can anyone stand to be in her presence
J: I don’t get it. Is it racist to think it’s stupid that their alliance is based on race?
P: their alliance is based on race
J: I think everyone sees what Naonka is, they just realize she is GOLD to bring to the final three
P: they said so!
J: I know is it racist to say that that is STUPID!
P: I’d probably kill my vote and vote for her to win it. just so I don’t give it to the idiot who brought her along
P: I’d say Dan has less of a shot than Naonka. he has zero chance of winning a single immunity. Even with the mental games he has checked out
J: I think Dan’s gone nest week. Provided no one does anything annoying, he’s the easiest target.
Biggest threat to Brenda?
P: why bother — if they have the chance to get rid of a physical threat they should do it! benry and fabio would be the smartest take downs b/c of immunity win possibilities
J: but they are liked, and sometimes it’s easier on the tribe to make the easy decision for a week
P: this is an individual game now
J: but everyone is playing so passively
the PASSIVE option is Dan
P: if they are all about their racial melting pot alliance, they should play that way
I just hate to admit another boring week is in store
WHAT ABOUT THE PROMO
LETS TALK PROMO!!!!
J: Don’t think my DVR caught it…
P: I cant find it!!!
basically something terrible happens at the camp and they are all crying and freaking out
J: wait I’m looking on CBS
P: RIGHT!!! WHAT HAPPENS
J: I think Dan’s knee explodes
P: this is why we need to recap this show right away
I’m sure his knee does not explode
maybe a fire?
maybe a dead animal!?!?
J: Machete Accident?!?!
the possibilities are endless
J: So final questions: Who is Brenda’s biggest threat?
P: Sash – he can turn the guys against her
they have no clue what he’s up to
J: What’s up with Benry?
P: he’s a pig
but a good physical player for now.
not much has been done so far for strategy (that weve seen) but his convo with Fabio gave some good insight
J: Final three are Naonka Fabio and Holly WHO WINS?
but could be Naonka
Brenda and sash seem to actually like her
J: It makes no actual sense to me…Maybe she’s just getting the nastiest edit cause there’s no other actual characters…
P: u cant edit the words she’s said about Kelly B
she is TERRIBLE
I’d say Fabio wins it
He’s bothered no one.
Holly is a wildcard
Dan could vote for her on the condition she buys him new shoes
J: I STILL cant believe she did that… OH! Fabio did piss off someone.. NAONKA but … yeah….she’s kinda just the worst
P: Fabio didn’t’ piss off Naonka. he spoke, and she decided she doesn’t like his voice. therefore she decided he was an issue
J: I didn’t say it was for a good reason, i just said he pissed her off..
She’s a TEACHER
I laugh as I type
P: not for long I’m sure
J: well dems da breaks
P: at least she has practice stealing food for survival
