Survivor Gabon -- Week 8

Previously on Survivor... Ken is a weenie... Randy is a tough guy... Marcus was smug and got booted. Jeff said... "Blindside" in a totally creepy kid toucher sort of way.

Night 24... Kenny is bragging about how awesome he is... and he is all bravado about how Bob is going home. Nice edittig... that has to mean that Kenny is at risk... right?

Tree mail comes on Day 25 and they are going to play some sort of slingshot golf. They practice a little bit and Marcus is identified as the one who was booted. Corrinne opens her big mouth and so does Charlie claiming that Marcus didn't desrve to leave the game. Kenny rightfully calls them on it and it gets awkward.

They play slingshot golf. Whatever team gets it into the "sand" hole in the least amount of tries wins the hole. Best two out of three. Corrinne is forced to sit.

First Hole
Kota is up first and Fang is up second. Both drives are pretty good and Bob has a great second shot... while Matty's (Fang) shot goes off. Kota wins the hole with Kenny's awesome shot.

Second Hole
Bob kicks ass for Kota and Matty succeeds for Fang. Fang's second shot lands 6 inches from the hole while Kota is thirty feet. They need to get it in. Nope. Fnag ties it up on the easy shot.

Third Hole
Matty & Bob launch incredible shots. Second shots are in decent shape. Kota shoots third first with Kenny "just" missing. Fang shoots short and lands within an inch. Kenny just overshoots. For Fang, Randy, Charlie and Matty all argue like assholes with a ton of bravado. They all suck. Randy is such a prick and gets nuts.

Bob is sent to Exile Island...

Fang gets to go to an African village and experience a pretty cool reward. This is Matty's first reward and he kind of earns it! They are treated well. Now... they all mourn the loss of Marcus... Dammit Charlie... think for yourself for once.

We return to Kota and watch Kenny navigate his rowboat while stuck... literally... going around in circles and circles. He catches some fish and thinks that he is a provider. How can they NOT boot him with all this crazy editting around his confidence.

Bob decides to look for the idol instead of taking comfort. He thinks he is the next one to get booted. He can't find the idol so makes a fake idol and what he makes is a pretty damn good looking fake idol.

Immunity Challenge is going to be all about making fire fast. They can't figure out if it will be individual or team and we get to see a lot of venom from Randy towards Crystal that just seems wrong and over the top. They arrive and it is now a MERGED tribe. Individual immunity is what they will seek. (This is a new lease on life for Bob.)

It's a basic challenge and they gotta light a fire and burn a string with flint, knife, and rope.... throw some kindling and a fire will eventually burn. Susie takes the early lead... with Sugar right behind. Susie's fire is just plain awesome... while Sugar is the only other one with fire. The rest of them are just plain pathetic... Susie wins in an incredibly anti-climatic event.

They are to go back to the old Fang which is a brand new tribe... all things were moved there. Randy declares that he can't live with Crystal and it will be one of the two of them going home.

They return to camp and everyone is joyous... strategy started pretty much right away. There seems to be two solid alliances and Sugar is the swing vote. Corrinne is a complete asshole in the way she speaks about Sugar. Matty, Kenny, Crystal, and Susie all start to focus on Charlie. Randy, Corrinne, Charlie, and Bob are all leaning towards Crystal. Ken shows his strength. Sugar can't decide... and drives me nuts with her "thinking."

Tribal Council comes and Marcus looks handsome in the jury. It starts and Crystal and Randy have a verbal bashing and it isn't fun to watch especially because Crystal talks in the third person. The rest of it bores me and no one is allowed to vote for Susie. I get the feeling that Charlie is going home. We see Randy votes for Crystal and Kenny votes for Charlie. Charlie votes for Crystal... Sugar is crying and we see that she starts writing a "C" name... then cries a whole bunch.

Jeff will tally up the votes...


Bye Bye Charlie... Lucy pulled the football out from you.

is it just me or are there some of the DUMBEST players this time around. Please don't let Crystal, Kenny, Susie, or Corrine win. I want Bob! Or Matt. Or Sugar (although se is a bit of a dingbat)
