Last night on “Survivor”, the episode first of all was exhilarating since one of the most annoying and delusional players ever seen in this game was gone due to a beautiful blindside the previous week; yes, viewers no longer need to hear Debbie’s words of self-aggrandizement and unfounded belief in her superiority over the other players. Obviously, this was proven wrong when last week she was blindsided and sent packing. It was a delightful moment that shall be remembered for a long time and cherished for this woman didn’t just get on other player’s nerves, but also on those watching.
This game time after time has shown that when someone preaches about being secure, reality slaps them in the face and tells them loud and clear, it isn’t so…Nevertheless, there are always those who boast about being in control and safe because their alliance is, in their minds, tight and without any chance of blindside.
And there was Jason and Scott who included Tai in their bullying, but did not allow the latter to speak his mind, but rather shot down his comments. Aubry who is strong and intelligent noticed the discrepancy and sweetened Tai’s ear with an alliance that not only would disseminate the bullies, but most importantly taken them to the final tribal council.
But the suppose dynamic duo of Jason and Scott felt themselves invincible by having along with Tai an immunity idol that could be used after the votes were read, so upon Jason winning individual immunity felt assured that their trio would survive another council. And Jason along with Scott voiced their belief that either others join them, or see their way out. It was an outstanding tribal council, where no hint was given as to what was come.
There is also Julia who decided to betray her alliance and go along with Jason and Scott, but for all intents and purposes professed being solid with her original group. And then it was time for tribal council, Jason went on to voice his belief that his alliance was solid and not one of them was going home that night, as he handed Scott his half of the idol that along with Tai’s would form the one of a kind immunity that could be used upon all the votes being read.
And once the votes were read Scott wound up with the most votes, obviously he went ahead and asked Tai for his half of the powerful idol, but this shook his head stating he would not hand it over, and so another blindside took place as Scott was voted out and the supposed solid alliance was destroyed. It was a tribal council for the ages, hopefully in the future a group of contestants will exercise more self-control and rather than ostracize themselves from others, will instead manipulate in a subtle and quite manner, that has proven to be a winning combination.
