What a...boring...episode. Fabio was next on the line, the writing was on the wall, but he won immunity! Thank God, the only person left that actually is worth rooting for wasn't going home. But before we get into what was the most interesting Tribal of the season, there are some things I need to complain about to the producers of Survivor. The Reward Challenge was predictable. Family members come running out of the woods for the big reunion hug, lots of tears, then a challenge where they help try to win an immediate trip to someplace beautiful. The winner also gets to take two other Survivors with them, and usually the left out people get hurt and cry back at camp. Is there another way to do this producers? Your show has become SO predictable sometimes. The only thing unpredictable about this season is when the power play going to come? The closest thing to a power play was Sash and Chase voting Brenda off. This season is boring if that's all we got.
So Chase wins reward, and after promising Fabio he would take him, spurns him for Holly. I definitely saw that coming, as Chase is stupid and not playing for Jury votes (assuming he makes it to the final 3). He continually promises people that he will take them on rewards and never takes them. He is a bigger liar than anyone ever on Survivor, and it's not because he's ruthless. It's because he's stupid. Of course, rightfully so, Jane and Fabio were both pissed. The perplexing thing was Dan. Nobody cares about him, so why was he upset Chase didn't pick him? Dan is just a body that no one will ever vote for because he is the corpse they drag along as a vote/easy loser of a million. All things aside, Fabio turns his anger and frustration into an immunity win, and things are better for fans of the show. The best part was when Jane joined the power 3, and they told her they were voting her off. She then became a little 4 year old and throws water on the fire. I laughed so hard, and couldn't believe how the tide had turned. Two episodes ago, Sash was the power person out of the final 3. Seriously Chase, you change your mind way too much. The true Sole Survivor has a plan, and sticks with it. I have never seen the person with the most power make so many changes and for no other reason than he's wishy-washy.
Tribal comes around, and (of course this would happen after I praise his skills a week earlier) Jeff TOTALLY tries to change the game. He basically told Jane, Fabio and Dan that if they forced a tie they might break up the big 3 that is going to the final 3. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! I have never seen Jeff basically tell people how to vote. It was unreal, and I think he is as bored with this season as I am. But of course, in keeping with the theme of this season, Dan and Fabio are too dumb to make any kind of move and Jane gets voted off. My analysis of the recently eliminated Jane and the final 5.
Jane - I honestly am glad she's gone. Now I don't have to listen to her talk anymore. Although I have to be honest, I thought she could've made her plea to Fabio and the corpse a little a) sooner and b) more desperately. Now that she's gone, we don't have to deal with her drawl anymore...phew!
Dan - AKA The Corpse. Somehow he's still here. Oh, and his kid looked NOTHING like him. Lucky kid. Whatever Dan is doing it's working, but I get the feeling it's being incompetent, lazy and unathletic. He's the least likely person of the season to make it this far. Probably not just for this season, but in the history of Survivor he's the worst final 5 member.
Fabio - Still my favorite player left, he had the chance to earn some votes, kick off Holly, and make a move to solidify a probable final 3 spot. Now the only way he makes it to the final group is winning 2 more immunity challenges. Here's to him becoming Australia's Colby, but with how good Chase is at challenges I doubt that happens.
Chase - I know that I said he's the most powerful player left, and I will clarify. While I think Sash is calling the shots, Chase is more powerful because of his athleticism and challenge success. He won't win though, because no one on the jury thinks he is a good player, and I agree. He wouldn't have lasted this long any other season, but with the idiots that are on this season he is still around.
Sash - The only smart person left. And I say smart loosely. I still don't know what to think of him, but I am pretty sure he is your Nicaragua winner. Holly is his only competition for the win left. They both have played the best game this season, and he has been in the power alliance this whole game. But he did have to switch to get into the newest power alliance, making the right decision I guess. I don't know, this season just hasn't been that good.
Holly - The only woman left, and probably the second most likely to win. She has stayed in her alliance and made the decisions to get them to the most powerful. She made the right decision to vote Jane off, and didn't really break any promises to her like Chase, not really burning any jury votes. I am pretty sure she has the most jury votes outside of Sash. This is, of course, assuming the power 3 make it to the final.
Ok, my predictions for the finale tonight. Fabio doesn't win the first immunity, gets voted off. Dan then gets voted off without a fight. Wow, I just put Dan in the final four...ouch... The final three then does the long walk reflecting on all the other stupid people from this season, then we get to the jury vote. What will Nay say? How harsh will Jane be? What will Marty and Brenda say to Chase and Sash? Can't wait for the jury time, but I don't care who wins. If I had to guess (and I do since this is my "predictions section"), Sash wins in a 5-3-1 vote over Holly and Chase respectively. Then everyone quits watching, as no one cares about a reunion show, and looks forward to next season with less idiots and hopefully a less predictable sequence of events.
