After voting Figgy out of the game last week Adam needed to do some explaining to Taylor but I thought he went a bit overboard. He kept saying that he knows he screwed Taylor over and that he made his game much harder. Yeah, he did for sure but it’s the game of Survivor. Adam is not the first or last person to do this. Settle down.
Meanwhile Taylor is talking politics with Ken and Jess and oddly enough he seems to be winning them over. At least Taylor is not sitting in a corner being a baby about Figgy being gone. I kinda thought he would curl up in a ball and forget there was a game to be played.
Food was up for grabs at the reward challenge. The first place winner had a personal chef at their camp cooking lunch for them and second place received kabobs to cook at camp themselves.
I was kinda surprised at Michaela’s comments when they arrived at the reward challenge to find that Figgy was voted out. She made some harsh remarks that Figgy needed to be voted out. I don’t know why she says stuff like that. I was unnecessary and could put a target on her back. Why would Taylor want to work with her after those comments. At least he said, “No comment” when Jeff asked him for a response.
Ken struggled a little bit at the end to get the balls on the beam and their tribe came in last. Michelle and Zeke were a great team getting the balls through the net and Chris did a quick job of getting the balls on the beam. They came in first place. Hannah and Will did a terrible job getting the balls through the net but thanks to Michaela they were able to catch up and secure second place.
Back at camp the Vanlia tribe was greeted by their chef and they ate and ate and ate! Zeke’s commentary is so funny. I really like him. The three guys burped and farted on and on. Michelle was so patient but she had to be grossing out.
Just look at Zeke!
At the immunity challenge Michaela’s tribe struggled and lost the challenge. The tribe literally sat on a log in silence. I guess pondering what to do.
Of course Sunny and Bret figured it would be one of them. Michaela gathered the Millennials together and used shells and rocks to demonstrate the strategy moving forward. I know her strategy was good because she seems very smart and very strong. I think she was so focused on winning and the end game that she didn’t realize that she was coming on too strong and letting people know how much she was thinking it through. Interesting though, earlier in the show when she was talking to the cameras she was very aware of not wanting to seem to strong and look like a threat. Hannah didn’t think anything of it because clearly she is a follower but Jay and Will decided that Michaela was too smart and too much of a threat to stay in the game. Also, it was very wise of Jay and Will not to tell Hannah. She is one second away from a freak out at all times so it was smart not to include her.
Tribal council was one for the books as you will see in the following photos. I love that Jay stood his ground and stood up to Michaela and owned his bold strategic move. Good for him for not backing down from the stare down she gave him.
Look at everyone’s faces! Bret is still not sure that he read the card right and is still eyeing Jeff for the votes. Sunday is like, “What the hell?” Jay is owning it! Will feels bad and Hannah is again clueless.
Still staring! Own it Jay!! Hannah is acting so shocked and almost apologetic. No need Hannah…Michaela is not on the Jury so you are good and again you weren’t involved. My patience is running thin for Hannah. I’m over her and would like her off my TV screen.
This shit storm continues.
An hour later and Hannah is still gathering her thoughts. Michaela was a super strong player and seems very smart but the way she exited the show by hitting the trees and talking trash was no good in my opinion.
My favorite players are: Jay, Zeke and Ken
I still think Michelle will be great strategically. Chris and Taylor are very strong. It will be interesting to see what happens, it looks like they merge next week.
