This week, Matsing meets its final fate, Kalabaw finds itself jinxed, and fortune smiles upon Tandang. Guest Blogger Sarah Freeman looks at how the individual players handle their good and bad luck this week and puts in her two cents on Pete bromancing Malcolm, the strategy of the Kalabaw women and whether Dana quit or was med-evaced.
While Matsing are united in adversity, Kalabaw and Tandang are starting to fracture as they wait for their chance to actually play the game. The question of the week is can an individual player profit from sowing chaos so early, or is it better for the tribe as a whole to stay strong until the merge.
The Hidden Immunity Idol is a concept gone stale these past few seasons, and Guest Blogger Sarah Freeman has been arguing for getting rid of it... until now. What are the producers doing right for the idol to be an influence on all three tribes? Plus a total breakdown of the dynamics on Matsing and Tandang – and a partial breakdown of Kalabaw (a.k.a. Jonathan, Jeff and the young'uns).
