Last week on “Survivor: Kaoh Rong,” Deb saw her torch get snuffed after a crazy Tribal that featured some theatrics from Jason, Scot and Tai. During the Tribal, Tai and Jason both pulled out their Idols, threatening the others with the idea that they may just combine them to form the “Super Idol,” which gives them the power to save someone AFTER the votes have been read. They ended up not needing to use either Idol, and Deb was sent home. So where does that leave the remaining eight contestants?
Well it isn’t going to slow down any, judging by this week’s preview (video above). There is apparently another big blindside coming tonight, and according to the official episode synopsis from CBS, there may be a game advantage that comes into play much sooner. Here it is:
Episode 10 – “I’m Not Here to Make Good Friends” – A surprising turn of events at tribal council sends shock waves through the entire tribe. Also, castaways must choose between food, love or an advantage in the game, on SURVIVOR,Wednesday, April 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Analysis. With Deb out of the game, Jason, Scot and Tai dodges some serious missiles last week to remain intact and in control. Their sabotage strategy will surely undo them in the end (who would vote for Jason or Scot after what they did at camp?), but their demise may come much sooner if Tai’s conscience wins out. If he were to jump away from the bullies, he would still have an Idol and would break up the chance of the “Super Idol” ever happening. If Tai blindsided the boys at Tribal, well, wow…that could be the most shocking scenario that could take place tonight.
Is it in Tai’s best interest to blindside Jason and/or Scot? It may be his only path. But on the other hand, if he can maneuver to the end of the game with both Jason and Scot by his side, he is most assuredly going to win the game. The problem with that though, is will Jason and Scot really want to go with Tai to the end? It’s complicated, but Tai may be instrumental in what goes down at Tribal.
It seems that the likes of Joe and Aubry are probably safe tonight, since who would consider either of their exits as a “surprising turn of events”? Still, much can happen, especially when there is a mystery “advantage” that may come into play tonight.
So who will go home blindside-style? Will Tai turn on Jason and Scot? Will the Super Idol come into play?
