Comfort or immunity, which will prove to be more
important to our survivors?
Survivor Fiji Rundown: Episode #4
When Ravu returns from Tribal Council, Earl feels
they should talk about ‘issues’. Rocky immediately begins going
off on Anthony. He accuses him of whining and basically being a girl. Anthony
admits he has never had much self-esteem, but is determined he will not
give up. He says they will have to push him off the island.
At Moto, Lisi, Boo, Stacy, Alex and Edgardo have formed a bond. They are
all getting along well. Meanwhile, Papa Smurf is still having trouble breathing
and reports his head is spinning so much he feels like throwing up. His
legs are covered in bites. He quips being in Vietnam was much better than
this. May I ask why the producers continue to pick contestants that are
a huge physical liability to their tribe?
The tribes arrive at the beach for the reward challenge. Each tribe is to
line up side by side on a balance beam. They will walk around or over their
tribe mates and onto a finish platform. This must be done without touching
more than one tribe member at a time. If you fall off into the water they
are required to start over. The reward will be fish, rice, spices, pillows,
blankets and a king size bed back at camp. The winning tribe will also send
a member of the losing tribe to Exile Island, but this person will not be
immune from tribal council. Moto is sitting out Papa Smurf – what
a surprise and Cassandra. Michelle is the first to get across and Yau-Man
is not far behind. Ravu seems to have this one all dialed in. Moto is really
having trouble for a change. But as in challenges past, Ravu begins to falter.
Anthony is not doing well. Moto ties it up and takes the lead. What a shock
- Moto wins the challenge. They send Yau-Man to Exile Island.
Back at Moto, Alex chides, “We kicked the crap out of Ravu once again”.
The tribe is enjoying the food and is closer than ever.
Rocky is furious. Ravu is in deep doo doo. Rocky is wailing, “We might
as well call Jeff and say let’s have tribal council now”. Anthony
tells Earl he knows he’s the target. Rocky is making such a spectacle
Anthony thinks if he can just lay low, maybe the tribe will choose to get
rid of Rocky.
On Exile Island, Yau-Man reads all four clues.
He now knows exactly where the immunity idol is, but is wondering how to
dig for it in secret. (See episode 3 for idol location.)
Liliana is ‘working’ the guys at Moto. She is giving them messages
on the new king size bed. The other girls are not liking this. They do not
want her to get in with the guys and ruin their plans.
The medical team arrives at Moto to check on Papa Smurf. His vital signs
are fine. They tell him there really isn’t anything else they can
do for him. He chooses to be evacuated from camp thus leaving the game.
Is this the only way for Moto to lose tribe members?
Tree mail arrives with news of the immunity challenge. Rocky walks over
to Michelle naked. She will not look at him. Why would he be walking around
camp that way with Earl and Anthony there? You know where I’m going
with this. Rocky decides to mix things up a little and puts on one of the
girls’ bra tops complete with coconut shell boobs. As they arrive
for the challenge Jeff compliments Rocky on his look. Yao-Man returns for
Four of the tribe members are locked in floating cages. When their cage
is opened they must walk across ‘lily pads’ to the next cage
and open it. After all four are released, the last person paddles back in
a boat and picks them up. When they return to shore they form a pyramid.
One person climbs up the pyramid and unlocks the final cage holding the
last tribe member. The winning team will have a note in a bottle to read.
(Remember the double elimination from Survivor 13?) Moto is in the lead
from the beginning, but Stacy is having trouble opening the last cage. Ravu
sticks with it and is catching up. In the closest challenge yet, Moto wins.
The note in the bottle gives the tribe the choice between comfort and immunity.
If they choose to remain in the comfy camp they must go to tribal council
and vote out their first member. Since Papa Smurf left earlier, this would
make the tribes even at 7. Moto decides unanimously to
go to tribal council. Are you nuts?
Dreamz wants everyone to be on the up and up and decide out in the open
who they are going to send home. He doesn’t want them to become snakes.
He shares the only two people they could afford to lose are Lisi or Cassandra.
He is right - they are the two weakest players on the tribe. But if he isn’t
careful he may as well paint a target in his back. The ‘team of five’;
Stacy, Alex, Edgardo, Lisi and Boo huddle to discuss their strategy. The
guys want to vote out Cassandra and the girls want to eliminate Liliana.
They don’t want her to be able to flirt her way into their alliance.
At tribal council, Dreamz laments how much he misses Papa Smurf and how
he feels invisible to the rest of the tribe. Jeff asks what would be best
for the tribe moving forward. In a bit of reverse psychology Cassandra says
how strong Liliana is and how far she will get in the game. Liliana receives
4 votes, Cassandra 1 and Lisi 1. When Jeff snuffs out her torch Liliana
says, “Wow I’m so shocked. If they didn’t get me out now
I was going to beat them”. Right.
Will Moto remain one big happy family after their first trip to tribal council?
Will Yao-man have enough alone time to dig for the idol? Will Rocky become
so volatile he is too much of a liability to keep around? Now with 14 survivors
left who will Outwit-Outplay-Outlast?
