I judge I must sight a doctor. Not a Sex Doctor, mind you. Moderately, I desire a doctor for matters above the belt — the neck, namely. Because I am suffering from some valuable Survivor whiplash. And I’m guessing I am removed from alone. We could additionally merely must assume some salvage of class action lawsuit against Label Burnett, CBS, and the Survivor Leisure Neighborhood (sure, there is one of these ingredient) for the excessive-mosey to and fro that went down in essentially the hottest episode.
Discover must it is doubtless you’ll maybe conform to this: Devon, Lauren, and Ashley seem prepared to vote Chrissy off. But then Ben overhears his name in the mix, so he will get Mike and Ryan on board to vote out Lauren. Handiest arena is, vengeance-making an are trying to search out Chrissy refuses to switch along and insists on vote casting Ben out. So then Mike goes motivate to Lauren and squeals on Ben, so now all of them plan to vote for Ben. Then, at Tribal Council, Ryan and Mike resolve to vote for Lauren. Chrissy then has the same opinion to that. But then Mike says to Chrissy to vote for Ben, and now after earlier refusing to vote for Lauren and insisting on vote casting for Ben, Chrissy refuses to vote for Ben and insists on vote casting for Lauren. BUT THEN SHE VOTES FOR BEN! Divulge what?!?!? But Ben does no longer trudge home on myth of he plays an idol. So Lauren goes home even though no person but Ben ended up vote casting for her. And a parrrrrrrrrrrtridge in a pear tree!
You presumably came right here for me to accomplish sense of all of this, but I will’t. (We did discover Chrissy and Ryan asking Mike to be dauntless and vote for Lauren like minded sooner than the vote, so I boom he declined and they fell in line and joined him in making an are trying to oust Ben.) Truly, all of it could maybe no longer luxuriate in labored out better for either them or us. For viewers, we bought to peek levels upon levels of formulation and gamesmanship. For avid gamers, they generous burned Ben’s idol (which they clearly did no longer even know he had) plus Lauren’s extra vote and idol, striking all people in the game motivate on equal footing.
The accurate one who came out a loser in this complete place is Lauren, and she can be able to chalk up that defeat to 2 haunting choices. First off, she urged all people about her extra vote. That, coupled with the idol she procured, made her a target. Data is vitality, and she gave away device too a lot knowledge in this game. Her 2nd error changed into as soon as making a present of 1/2 of her immunity to Mike, rendering the 1/2 she saved needless. “It falls into these stupidest strikes ever in Survivor history,” acknowledged Mike. “And the pleasant request is, pause the Survivor gods accomplish her pay for it or no longer?” They did.

Search, I get what Lauren changed into as soon as making an are trying to pause right here. I assign she changed into as soon as making an are trying to develop some belief with Mike and changed into as soon as making an are trying to accomplish herself much less of a target by giving that away. But right here’s the ingredient: It is doubtless you’ll maybe presumably additionally’t develop belief with a man you generous doubly duped by no longer telling him Ben changed into as soon as a glance and additionally no longer utilizing your double vote at the old TC devour you promised. Mike is executed trusting any individual. That belief ship has sailed and escape correct into a mountainous iceberg — and I’m sorry to reveal that if that plank of wooden floating in the water is no longer huge ample to protect each and every Kate and Leo, then it surely isn’t immense ample to protect the each and every of you.
And as a ways as making yourself much less of a target, that’s no longer the formulation you get rid of an idol. The easiest device you get rid of an idol is by playing it — that device you mute protect some safety and can’t be voted out, but then it is doubtless you’ll maybe additionally very well be no longer a target transferring forward after that.
So yeah, Lauren screwed up, and I’m definite she’s no longer contented about it. Nonetheless, is Lauren contented about something? Did we ever even discover her crack a smile in 33 days? I’m no longer asserting she wished to be a charter member of The Coconuts, however the lady never gave the impression to be having any fun in the market. And Survivor luxuriate in to be fun — even though I boom Keith Nale would disagree. But even Mr. “Survivor Ain’t Relaxing” gave the impression to be playing himself in the market, devour when he stole the tuk-tuk. With out reference to her lack of a definite joie de vivre, Lauren changed into a fan accepted attributable to her no-nonsense fashion. And I’m very odd to sight how that translates to her glossy aim as a member of the jury. But that’s taking a seek device too a ways ahead. Let’s buckle up and recap the the leisure of this S.O.B.
The episode begins with the aftermath of Gorgeous Leer Ben finally being revealed, and the minority is licking its collective wounds. “I generous contain people as soon as they present me something,” laments the Sex Doctor. “I changed into as soon as generous duped…I had no idea.… I’m in an unpleasant situation like minded now,” says Ryan. Chrissy, however, goes on the offensive. “What you did tonight in fact confirmed your like minded colors,” she tells the wannabe Daniel Day-Lewis. “You’re one of these jerk, Ben.”
Right here’s the most most principal (but removed from final) hypocritical picking at Ben for deceiving by other folks who luxuriate in executed hundreds of deceiving on their very hang. Deception is portion of Survivor and I don’t luxuriate in time for people that celebrate as soon as they’re on the giving pause of it but say and get holier than thou when on the receiving pause. Have to it is doubtless you’ll maybe’t take care of being lied to, DON’T PLAY SURVIVOR!!! (And I insist this as any individual who in fact likes Chrissy.)
Okay, ample ranting. Let’s trudge peek people rupture down and yowl for 10 minutes. Sure, it’s the family confer with! I dig the family confer with. Not on myth of I am so moved by these huge-emotional shows of affection. You all know me better than that. No, I dig it on myth of you discover contestants at their most vulnerable. I dig it on myth of there are repeatedly one or two zany family you more or much less must develop a sitcom around. And I dig it on myth of you get to listen to Jeff Probst suppose huge-awkward issues devour “Ashley, let’s get you some devour,” and “Chrissy and Keith, you’re responsible of devour!” (Accountable of devour? Does that mean Chrissy and her husband generous changed into island pimps or something?) (Recap continues on subsequent page)
