Episode 5: Survivor Fans v Faves
Tribal Shakeup!


Previously on Survivor: Chet's weak. Joel aligns with the weaker fans to oust Mikey B. Ozzy find the idol. Woo hoo.

Fans react to Mikey being gone. Shaggy Boy (um, what's his name?) is bummed that they lost a strong player for a weaker player.

On Favorites beach, Ozzy decides to tell no one about having found the hidden immunity idol. He hides it somewhere on the favorites' beach.

He immediately tells James. And Amanda. And Pavarti. Brilliant.

Reward Challenge: Playing for a feast ...

But first ...

DROP YOUR BUFFS! This is the time on Sprockets when we switch!!!

Ozzy is unhappy. Jonathan is accustomed to the old switcheroo.

They pick rocks. They do a schoolyard pick. Immediately, Ozzy and James are on different tribes. Then Amanda winds up on Ozzy's team. And Pavarti ends up on James'. Fan Joel "You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry" Banner is thrilled that Chet's on his team. (The skinny gayboy is always picked last, eh?)

And for a feast, you'll have to be tied to one another and run away from another tied team while you smack your heads into trees, pull your partners' knees into obstacles and pound your face into tree trunks. Fun!!!

Amanda gets a fat lip. Jonathan tears up his knee. Amy hurts hers as well. Chet is dragged around the course like tin cans tied to a limo and probably gets a concussion Ratings gold!

And there's blood! Whee!

The Whatzisname tribe (Ozzy and others on the former Favorites, or "Favorites", beach) is happy to have the cool digs, but is upset to have lost the challenge. (They don't show it, but you gotta know Ozzy's gotta be relieved he wasn't sent to the beach where he DIDN'T have the idol stashed!) The Whatever tribe (James and the others on the fans, or "Fans" beach) wins the challenge and has a feast. But since the fans were lazy little piggies and made their houses of straw, the tide washes away their fire. Who knows how they'd fare against the Big Bad Wolf?

A doctor tends to Jonathan and we get to see an extreme close up of his gaping wound and his stitches being sown. Thank goodness for HDTV! (Yeah, I know it's not on HD yet. Damn you, Marc Burnett!)

Immunity challenge: Break tiles. Grab puzzle pieces. Put together a puzzle led by a caller.

For team Whatzisname, The Incredible Joel breaks zero tiles with his amazing athleticism. Allison -- no, sorry, I am being told her name is Tracy -- manages to break three. When they finally get to the puzzle Joel keeps second guessing Chet and team Whatever wins immunity.

Back on the beach we are treated to long, lustful shots of a sleek and sinewy Chet sunning himself. Long, erotic visions of Chet communing with chickens. Sultry visions of Chet in his baggy, baggy shorts. Zexy.

Joel wants Chet out. And then Cirie and then Tracy.

Shaggy thinks it's a good idea as do Ozzy and Amanda. Cirie, sensing which way this is gonna go, gets going on ousting Truckasaurus, pointing out that he hasn't helped win squat and probably lost the game for them.

At tribal, Shaggy displays a sense of the artistic in writing Chet's name in outline letters and is again floored when a hunk is voted out.

Ozzy and Cirie write "Truck" on their parchment.

Joel's upset.

Next week: Jonathan's injury could lead to a life-threatening infection! Tune in to see if he has to choose between playing a game or death!

joel is a complete prick. there, i learned a fans name.

i can't imagine reward being worth 1/2 the team being injured for the immunity comp.

That kid is soo star-struck. I think he'd flip to Ozzy's side is a second.

Blogger Carolyn said...

mo - i hope so... lol.. i'd love to see the faves go to the merge with a nice lead

5:32 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Looove the triumphant, teamwork music. Too funny.

5:35 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

hmph to the immunity challenge.

we've seen it 12 times before...

but at least they made allowances for all the injuries.

5:38 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

YES! My thoughts exactly. So it looks like Chet's a goner (he's got that kinda edit).

5:41 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

ok, ozzy.. did you learn from your past experience or not? we'll know in the next 20 minutes.

5:42 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Ozzy and Amanda and the rest may have the physical prowess but they have NOTHING on Cirie. That's girl running laps around all of them and it's great to witness.

5:49 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

agreed, mo... i hope joel's toast

5:52 PM

I'm a Cirie fan after that. Good for her. She needs to be in the BB house and rock it.

5:55 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

Oooh, my Jonathan!!!! My sweet, sweet, sexy Jonathan!!

Can I nurse it and make it better?

Don't want him to have to leave! But I want him well and in one piece.

And what the heck is it with these challenges where people risk life and limb?!

In other matters ...

* Joel is indeed a prick. Good riddance.

* Does Amy speak?

* Re: Medical Care. Some things don't need close ups. Or did I sit on the remote and switch to Nip/Tuck?

* Re: Splayed Chet. Same as a above. To quote Valerie Cherish, "I didn't need to see that!

HILARIOUS! Cliff, well done. I don't know what was funnier... your quotes and commentary or Jeff telling the orange tribe (yeah, I don't know their name either) to stop their bitching! This was the funniest episode thus far. Joel's a prick, but the tribe is stupid anyway, in my opinion!

How cute that the (dare I use quotes?!) "couples" stayed together! ;)

Thanks! I was hoping someone would see it!

Joel is a jerk but Chet is soooooooo week I hope they know what they are doing.

Cirie is kick ass!

I don't remember her being like this last time. She sort of went with the flow. Now she's directing the flow.

If the "couples" are smart they will keep that a secret for now.

I'm here Mo. I bet Carolyn is wiped from the endurance comp last night. Read on bb blog that she just woke up from nap.

Glad you are here, I was kinda sad when I didn't see a new post.....

Cliff~ I bet your sad bout Jonathan, I know I am!

5:20 PM  
Blogger *~*melissa*~* said...

Oh and Cliff I enjoyed reading your blog last week. You did great!! Maybe you could do it again sometime if Carolyn needs ya?! You know I adore you and Carolyn and Mo and I won't Beth and Eric!

I went to a friends for survivor night last week, but I missed y'all, so later that night I had to come read the blog and comments.

I know we replayed Joel the truck dragging Chet bout 50 times. And the interaction after. I needed that laugh, but I did feel very, very bad for Chet.

Chet: I bumped my head back there.
Truck: I don't care.
Chet: I know.

I am so glad he got the boot. Mean mean man who thought he could run it all. Cirie rocked that vote! She can run it, thats for sure.

Poor Penner! I definitely liked him this time more than last. Then again, he didn't get far enough to the part where it gets ugly. Kathy is hilarious by the way. And batty as all get out!

It's hard to pick a favorite team, cuz I have faves on both sides.

5:39 PM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Team Ozzy! Always.

5:39 PM  
Blogger *~*melissa*~* said...

so they are making us think Cirie could possibly go? whose the second? What are u thinkin Mo?

5:41 PM  
Blogger *~*melissa*~* said...

I agree. I dig Ozzy. So I guess I'll just say I am on HIS team. But I do like Kathy and James on the other team.

5:44 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

sorry ladies... i'm a little slow on the uptake today... a post specific to ep 6 has just been opened

5:44 PM  
Blogger *~*melissa*~* said...

Hmmm...Ozzy is crackin me up.

NO don't even mention Ozzy. They better NOT go there!!

Ughhhh, this better just be CBS throwing me off.

5:48 PM  
Blogger *~*melissa*~* said...

If they get rid of Ozzy, they are F'd. They will NEVER win another challenge.
