At La Mina... Sally realizes she is the odd woman out... She had no clue Misty was going... And she's worried (like they always are...) Meanwhile... Dan decides that they will need a fifth person in their alliance... and wants Ruth-Marie... He thinks she'll be more loyal after a merge... At the other camp... Bruce, Shane and Aras are gathering snails... but they get back to find a bunch of lazy-asses at the camp have let the fire die. People bitch at eachother... The alliance of idiots looks shaky... And Cirie couldn't be happier. REWARD CHALLENGE: PUZZLE PARANOIA Each tribe gets six floating puzzle pieces. One tribe member at a time will swim out, dive down, unclip a puzzle piece, and bring it back to the puzzle frame. Once the piece is placed in the puzzle frame, the next person can go out. When all six of the puzzle pieces have been collected, the tribe may start assembling the puzzle by matching corresponding symbols on each side of every piece. First tribe to get it together correctly wins the Reward: Casa de Charmin: a full-service bathroom courtesy of Charmin. Casaya wins the reward and gets the bathroom.... and gets to choose somebody to send to exile island.... They send Terry. La Mina falls apart without Terry's leadership.... *******Can I say something here- The last few Survivor seasons have just really killed my entertainment value with rewards like this. Why baby these people? A reward challenge should have been for just the toilet paper. or a couple of towels... Not a friggin bathroom, shower, and all the other stuff they got. That was ridiculous! Let's get back to playing Survivor- Not Vacation!******** At Casaya- they decide they should keep towels and firewood in their new bathroom to keep it dry... Bobby sees it as an opportunity to use it as what it was intended for... and christens it properly... Terry is on exile island and looks at the clues... and then heads straight over to where the immunty idol is buried. Gee... what punishment Casaya piled on him, eh? Back at Casya... Shane and Danielle argue over work ethic... Cirie is overjoyed... At La Mina- they are trying to fish. They are failing miserably, but they are trying. I bet Sally regrets dropping that spear more and more every day.... IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: SEA LEVEL TREE LEVEL One person is seated in a chair attached to a pulley, while another person is situated directly above them in a crow's nest, where an empty water drum hangs. The other four remaining tribe members are together in pairs, which will race across a balance beam carrying buckets. Once they reach the water, they must dip their bucket in, get water, race back and empty the water into a larger pail. The person in the crow's nest will pull that pail up and empty the water into the drum. As the drum takes on water, it will lower, but the person in the chair will rise until they're high enough to pull a pin releasing their tribe's flag. First tribe to release their flag wins Immunity. Casaya squeaks out the win due to Dan falling at one point, and then Austin pours like a little girl trying not to spill a drop... back to Tribal council for La Mina.... The guys decide that Dan was the only one who told Ruth Marie she would be coming with them.... the rest never said a word. So they decide to vote her off instead- keeping the spear dropper for her strength.... We'll have to wait and see how that works for them.... ************************************* Some of you who have been reading my blog for a long time may wonder why I'm not giving the play by play for American Idol. We have been watching it, but there are just too many people still in it right now for me to go thru them all. I will wait until we're down to the final 12 before I start. I can't say I'm dissapointed with the vote outs last night though... None of the folks who left had a shot anyway.
