My not so secret shame: Survivor Recap Ep.3

Episode 3: The case of the immunity idol and the bad liars...

Is it just me or does no one know the real names of the tribes... I don't...so I'm just going to stick with the whole Harry Potter House names...it's easier...and amazing.

We kick start with Gryffindor - The Blue Team, who do an amazing job of looking awesome in night vision mode. They discuss that Bianca got the boot and they are all good with that. I kind of wanted to see her sneaky investigative skills in full force, but thats ok. The magician is still there, I expect great things from him, some might say, 'magical' things. Kylie is pretty pissed because she thought they all had an agreement to send poor Pete on his way, but she got blindsided. This is the game man, you gotta check yo'self before you wreck yo'self...

How bloody beautiful is Samoa by the way? I have never been, but this show is doing a really awesome job of boosting my desire to travel over there and live in a hut...well by hut, I mean I'd a hotel...

Pete wants to leave and fair enough, it's a tough gig. Then he cries and my heart melts into many sad pieces. The poor guy isn't coping well but he does pull of a red suit remarkably well!! 10 points Gryffindor! Hot Sam gives him a cuddle and a pep talk, thats gotta make you feel better! Good on you Hot Sam! Kylie is stilled pissed...in the words of Elsa, "Let it goooo, let it goooo"...

The tribes receive Survivor mail, asking them to choose their wisest tribe member and a buddy to undertake some kind of quest. Pete is chosen as the wise wizard and Kylie is him 'Samwise Gamgee'. The young dude alliance realise their mistake of sending away two people on a quest, which may be to their benefit, without one of them to act as a spy. Snooze you lose buddies!! Coincidentally the quest has to do with honesty and deceit, very appropriate given Kylie's attitude towards being left out of the tribes voting schemes. If they pick honesty, they get a bag of beans for the tribe, if they choose deceit they get a bag of beans ONLY for the two of them, but they get a clue to a secret immunity idol which is hidden somewhere on the island. I'm assuming the immunity idol is not for the whole tribe, but an individual thing, so they can't get kicked out if the tribe is sent to tribal council. So the sneaky buggers go with deceit... I think Kylie was more doing it as payback to the others, but fair enough. I'd probably do it too, you aren't there to make friends are you?

Slytherin camp - Red Team: They receive the same mail and choose the 'model' Rohan (he is your wisest member?) and Phoebe is his buddy. They obviously go with deceit - they are Slytherin, would you expect honesty from them? The two of them don't even trust each other. They make up a sneaky plan to lie to the tribe about what they really found, they did a horrible job of lying to them but whatever...they tried. No one believes them, I wouldn't either. Like I said before...your wisest member? Evan is super suss and goes off to find evidence that they are up to something. Off he goes and what does he find? The bloody clue! Good one guys, I'd expect something like that from Hufflepuff...

Speaking of Hufflepuff - The Yellow Tribe, they send Nick and Tegan on their secret quest. They go with 'the lie thing', sneaky little survivors aren't they! Hopefully they come up with a better story than Slytherin to convince their tribe that everything is all find and dandy. Oh god, they made a fake poem. It's ok...they  aren't convincing their tribe but they get points for creativity. They send them on some half assed treasure hunt, but no one is buying it. Nick realises they that Craig and Jenna don't believe him and confesses, wow that lasted a good 10 minutes didn't it? They have successfully just put themselves on the chopping block if they are up at tribal council. Well played...well played...

Rohan and Phoebe lie in their hut, giggling away at their own dishonesty. They then realise the clue Rohan put in his pants is gone, not so funny anymore! Evan parades the clue around the camp, showing the tribe members that they have been lied to... He got little bit over excited, tried to cause some trouble but I don't think he realises no one really likes him. He then swears on his wife's life, so I'm assuming his wife doesn't like him much either...

The challenge: Anthony LaPaglia's brother has got some serious veins on those arms doesn't he? Basically the challenge is on a canoe, they have to float around and overcome some obstacles along the way, go back to shore and build a tower out of blocks - Sounds like a game I used to play in Primary school. The winning tribe gets a whole bunch of luxuries like pillows and comfy stuff. The losing tribe...just lose! Hufflepuff kick ass at these challenges don't they?! I should stop calling them Hufflepluff...oh well... Slytherin do not have very good canoe moving skills...
Watching tower building is actually a lot more stressful than I thought! But again, Hufflepuff dominate and win those beautifully sewn pillows... I personally would have wanted to win a Double Quarter Pounder meal at this point, but I'm sure the pillows will be great. Slytherin not only prove they can't use a canoe, but they also can't build with blocks! Next they will be crap at finger painting!

Let the scheming and backstabbing begin. Wait... before the scheming and backstabbing theres a nice moment where Hufflepuff get there cosy items (Barry makes a hammock look awesome) and Gryffindor eat some kind of weird Sea cucumber...kids these days... Anyway scheming and backstabbing... Slytherin are trying to figure out who the boss is, whose to blame for losing (again) and just really scheming and backstabbing. Evan wanders around in his undies trying to find this magical immunity idol because I think he is aware...he isn't safe.

The immunity challenge: They must take part in a relay race, running through an obstacle course one at a time and then they must use their ever growing puzzle skills to...do a puzzle... There's a lot of running back and fourth, getting bags and again Hufflepuff kick butt most of the way. Anthony Lapaglia's brother continues to point out the obvious. Floppy hat has been designated puzzle duty again... Is that a good idea considering the last puzzle she did, she failed miserably at it? Evan proves he shares the same skill level as floppy hat and literally has to be told how to put a puzzle together. The magician is pretty good, I was bit disappointed he didn't do it, like with his mind or something...maybe next time. Pete helps him...he is so cute, I actually love him! Hufflepuff win again!! I really make them out like they are useless, but maybe thats their game plan. Sneaky and successful! Slytherin lose, so off to tribal council they go...

Slytherin break up into little corners and scheme about who is next on the chopping block. Is it just me, or does Lee get more good looking every episode? So far its not looking good for Evan or Floppy hat. Evan has no bloody clue that no one has an alliance with him. He literally is in fairy land. Oh wait, he is using his awesome acting skills to "suck up to Rohan". It's not acting skills mate, you know you're in deep shit and you are desperate. The tribe is basically split 50/50 between Floppy hat and Evan, but until they write those names down you just don't know... So many games.

At tribal council, Anthony Lapaglia's brother is wearing a nice checkered shirt and Lee's tan is looking amazing. Three of them are wearing glasses all of a sudden which makes me think they aren't prescription. They establish that, no...Floppy hat is not good at puzzles. Floppy hat drops the bombshell that there is the "main four", Lee, Phoebe, Rohan and El. Evan is pissed, we all know he thinks he is part of the cool club. Poor love. In the end Evan is voted out and he makes some passive aggressive comment about the idol to Rohan. Always has to open his big mouth doesn't he? It looks like the foursome has dominated the tribe... I mean half their tribe is gone but still...they have done well.

Evan leaves us with words of wisdom, something about Lee and El realising in the future it was a mistake to vote him out. I don't think they will...but whatever helps you sleep at night mate. I'm sure your wife will be looking forward to seeing you now...*Insert awkward collar tug*

So that's our survivoroonies for now. 'Till next time!! Well tomorrow... the next time is tomorrow...
Amy OUT *mic drop*
