Survivor Gabon... Week... Uhhh... NINE!
Previously... on Survivor... Charlie... suffering in an unrequited BROMANCE was blindsided and voted out last week. Kenny seems to be running things.... and Bob has an awesome looking fake idol...
We arrive "LIVE" on the beach on Night 27... and there are some pretty tense individuals... Randy is surprised that he's still around...
Day 28 comes and Bob shows Sugar the fake idol and only her... Sugar is crazy cute and I am not sure if it is because she was able to eat for two more week's worth of time than the rest of the group.
We get to see an interaction between Randy and Corrinne -- the two absolutely least appealing people in this season -- and they show me that they are incredibly insane. (Annoying people make the show more fun though....)
Tree Mail arrives and we get a food auction! They start bidding on food and we are told... no pooling money and no sharing food. The first item is beer and peanuts and Randy pays $180 for it. Kenny buys a parchment... and it reads that he can send himself to Exile Island or send someone else and take their money. He sends Bob and takes his money. Sugar buys chocolate and peanut butter for $340. The next item is a hot bath and fresh clothes... sold to Susie for $340... and she bathes NOW!... blech. Burger and fries comes up... Matty wins for $40. (Susie steps out of the bath too early... and everyone thinks she is nuts. She is nuts.) For $280, Randy wins spaghetti and meatballs. The next item is a bottle with a clue for the next immunity challenge that Corrinne wins for $500 (It must be kept sealed until the challenge.) Randy buys a cookie for everyone... and Sugar refuses the cookie, but in the end takes one and gives it to Matty. Randy versus Sugar... interesting...
High Definition animals are awesome... we get back and Randy is a pissed off bastard... but he and Corrinne try and convince Matty to join them and Bob... who... we are reminded is on Exile Island. He chose Idol looking and realizes that his extra clue is irrelevant... sooo... thinking he will get voted off soon, he goes for a long walk around Africa and we all feel better about ourselves.. and thankfully... it is in high definition.
The other alliance of Kenny, Sugar, Crystal, Susie and Matty all start talking strategy. They all want to get rid of Randy, but Matty tries to convince them to get rid of Bob since he is the stronger player. Randy comes back to the hut...and dramatic music begins! ... then... commercial..
Day 29 begins... and Randy thinks that he is going to shake things up and plans to act really nasty to everyone and get the votes... He will then use the immunity idol that Bob "found". The next five minutes are Randy being an annoying fucking asshole... and then cut outs to each player telling the camera that he needs to go.
Immunity Challenge time! Bob returns... First round... walk across balance beams with a bag of blocks... twice... first two people make it to the final round. Second round is cool... they put their blocks on angles on another balance beam... Then... they must walk through some trip wires that will knock down the blocks... (hard to describe... but neat...) Corrinne reads her clue and she is exempt from the first round... Matty and Kenny win so the three go into the finals... It's a wacky challenge and the blocks must be set up so they will fall like dominoes... to knock down a Rube Goldberg thingy to get a flag up. Kenny tries and it doesn't work... Then... all three start about the same time and only Kenny's goes all the way... so he wins immunity.
How can it NOT be Randy going home?
We get to see the logic of Randy because he has made a complete ass of himself because he assumes that Bob has found the idol. Sugar convinces Bob to give Randy the fake idol. Bob sees no reason why he shouldn't... and he "convinces" Randy to take the idol. Randy offers his vote for Bob in the finals if he doesn't make it there. Randy has a newfound bit of confidence that is disgusting and annoying... I have a new found respect for Bob that is awesome.
Tribal Council arrives and we all know who is going home.... it's an interesting TC...
Crystal votes and her screaming can be heard back at the TC...a nd everyone is uncomfortable.
It's time to "tally the votes"...and the payoff when Randy plays the idol is worth it... even though we knew it was coming the whole time! Thank you Randy for being a complete moron... Thank you....
I don't mind losing him from my team... what a bonehead idiot joke.
Buh bye Randy!
