My not so secret shame: Survivor Recap Ep.4

Episode 4: The one wear Rohan wears a life jacket and the legend of Pistol Pete...

Is it just me, or do they show a lot of clips of crabs on this show?

We start the episode in camp Slytherin (Red tribe). They do the obligatory, "I feel so bad about ___ leaving". You can't say you aren't pleased Evan left? He was annoying to watch, let alone live with.

Over to the Gryffindor camp (Blue tribe). Poor Pete is really struggling. His body isn't coping with life on the island, but on the positive side he really pulls off a bright red suit! He wants to leave, but the tribe won't vote him off. He thinks it's nice they all want to be friends, but you can tell he is running out of nice ways to say, "I want to f*cking leave this hellhole!"

At Hufflepuff (Yellow tribe), Craig is having a whinge about Nick and Tegan and their horrible attempt at lying about finding a clue of the whereabouts of the secret immunity idol... Survivors worst kept secret. Nick tries again to give them information about the idol, was he lying again? I have no idea because he was talking the biggest load of rambles! No one else seemed to believe a word he was saying. Sue is awesome, she doesn't take his bullshit...I love her spunk and they should show more of her! He tries to convince them all that he did lie, but now he isn't lying anymore...coz you would believe him right? Don't know about that one buddy...

Back to Slytherin. Rohan and Phoebe are on a mission to find the immunity idol. They make a deal that if they find it, Phoebe will get it, no matter who finds it. Speaking of Phoebe, I just want to take this opportunity to say she is playing the game SO WELL!! Super sneaky, she has built two separate alliances which means she has an alliance with majority of the tribe. She is wheeling and dealing, breakin' necks and casino' cheques... You go girlfriend!! Her only mistake was trusting Rohan with their agreement - he found the idol and surprise surprise, he kept it for himself. Big mistake dude...she owns your tribe.

Gryffindor camp are very busy breaking sticks and banging coconuts on rocks... very caveman-eske... Kylie and Pete are struggling to venture off to find the immunity idol as the young dude alliance are on to them. They are watching them at all times and rarely leave them alone. Nothing gets past anyone on this show. Kylie is pretty desperate to find it because she isn't in with the cool kids and knows she will be one of the next to go. Pete doesn't want it...he just wants to be free...

At the Hufflepuff Camp, Craig is busy making sure the hammock doesn't disappear and they are all having a grumble because they haven't had fire for 3 days. You have waited 3 days to go, "maybe we should do something about the fire situation?" The intense hunger and dehydration wasn't enough to give you an inkling that maybe you need it? All of a sudden, there are all these people who I have never seen before...they don't really show many members of this tribe. Kate, (I didn't know there was a Kate), tells her story about her horrific accident she was in which left her in a coma. Total respect for powering on and getting your life back from something like that! But seriously... Who are you?

Phoebe is on a mission to bring down Rohan in the Slytherin camp. A fully fledged 'get rid of Rohan',  attack is about to take place. Watch your back Rohan...

The immunity challenge is up and Hufflepuff is the tribe to beat. The challenge involves tribe members swimming out to a cage in the ocean. The must pull up a treasure chest and drag it back to shore. All the chests need to be collected and then they must complete another puzzle. They reallllly love these puzzles don't they? I'm sorry but I would not be swimming that far out in the ocean to a cage, I'm from Australia, I KNOW there are sharks out there!! This challenge is great for the guys to show off those muscles and do a slow motion run through the water, holding a treasure chest above their heads like Baywatch Pirates! I would also like to point out, that Anthony LaPaglia's brother yells out everything they do...in detail...all the time. If he followed me around doing that, I'd be kinda freaked out... Hufflepuff aren't going to well with this challenge but they always seem to find a way to beat everyone. They do struggle but it's ok, we get to the puzzle bit and we all know how Slytherin are with puzzles. Guess what!? Smytherin lose...again...because they can't do puzzles. Learn from your mistakes, practise your puzzle skills kids! Gryffindor win and Hufflepuff want to make a deal with Anthony LaPaglia's brother. They want to make a wager about getting a new flint to start their fire, in return he tells them they must return EVERYTHING they have won so far. Maybe just, I don't know...try harder to make a fire? I mean the hammock does need to be looked after but you could always just try?

So Slytherin are pretty pissed they lost again. I would be more embarrassed than anything. They continue their:
"Who should we vote out?"
"Let's get rid of Floppy hat"
"No, Rohan is annoying"...
(Not direct quotes)

Phoebe has her eyes on Rohan and he does nothing to help reduce that giant target sign on his back. Phoebe knows she has power, Rohan knows this too and you can see the slight panic in his eyes when she flat out threatens him that he will go. She is RUTHLESS! It's like 'The Godfather' or something and he's going to wake up with a crab head on his pillow. One by one, Phoebe gathers her minions and sets their sights on Rohan, at the same time convincing him everyone is voting for Floppy Hat. She's good, you can't fault her! So off they wander to Tribal council...

Meanwhile at Gryffindor, some heartbreaking news is occurring. Pete isn't coping anymore. He has a sit down chat with Anthony Lapaglia's brother and explains how he became ill just before Survivor started and he can feel his body worsening everyday. Although he would love to continue his time on the island, he owes it to his family to regain his health and heal. Good on you man!!! He hasn't eaten in 12 days, if that were me I would have gone on a hangry rampage and murdered half the tribe by now. He is so damn sweet and I will miss those red pants, but you have to do whats right for your body. It's quite sad, because the Magician is really cut up about it all and it just pulls at the heartstrings little bit. Kylie is freaking out...her one buddy is now gone and she has no immunity idol. You better get hunting girlfriend!

Over at Tribal council Rohan has decided to wear a lifejacket. Is that like some cool thing that models do? They all have a chat about life, who they think hates them, do they trust people...just the usual tribal banter... Tension rises as it comes time to vote, the music gets really loud (I had to turn it down coz I have a sleeping baby) and then...*dramatic pause* Anthony Lapaglia's brother drops the bombshell that, Pete from Gryffindor has chosen to leave Survivor and therefore no one will be leaving tonight. You are so lucky Rohan...you don't even realise!

So much drama, so much game playing, so many crabs...
Until next time...which thanks for Channel Ten putting it on 3 nights a week, now will be tomorrow...
Later Gaters...
