What has the Dawn and Brenda controversy taught us about how people define "friendship" in an individual game?
Finale Week is upon us, Loyal Blog Readers! We’ve weathered the Caramoan storms of Hurricane Brandon and Tropical Storm Phillip. Our Survivor winner is emerging from its cocoon of mystery. In just 48 hours, someone will be getting that million dollar check. The future is bright, Loyal Blog Readers. The Survivor machine just keeps humming away.
Now that the power players have turned on each other, who’s leading the race to the final three? Survivor Caramoan Episode 12
It’s becoming quite evident why Jeff likes this season. The openness and the candor displayed during tribal Council is turning it into the anti-Guatemala, a season he detested.
Jeff reminded us that, although Stealth-R-Us have been in control of the game, they are far from a well-oiled machine. Dawn has struggled to control her emotions, Andrea has been courting the enemy and Phillip’s leadership style has worn thin amongst his rivals and allies. We heard Sherri saying it was all crazy. At the […]
Now we've had a chance to recover from the insanity, just how evil is Malcolm and how good is this cast in general?
In an episode where loyalty and flipping became the main topics of conversation, the players that shined were the loyal ones, the ones that didn’t think of turning against their previous alliance.
The recap started at the immunity challenge where Jeff noted Reynold’s heroics but the Fans lost their 3rd immunity challenge in a row. For the Favorites, winning wasn’t the problem: The majority alliance was targeting one of their own – Corinne. And Brandon had a series of emotional outbursts. The entire tribe was left wondering […]
Most viewers must be expecting to see Bikal’s domination continue, but the editors showed so much of Gota’s troubles that a reversal of situation has to be expected. Before the season even started, viewers were saying that the returning players had an unfair advantage over the newbies so we’d expect the editors trying to show some difficulties over at Bikal. The hurricane had to hit both camps, a Favorite or two had to have a bad night, but we didn’t see any of that. All the plagues of Egypt have befallen on Gota so one of their own must emerge out of this, no? If not, what’s the story? The Favorites had no opposition and won? I don’t see a best-seller there.
Is the Hidden Immunity Idol a good idea, or not? And, more importantly, does it work in the game as it was intended?
The recap reminded us that the Fans’ camp was filled with disorder. The only thing coming together was the couples’ alliance. The Favorites had a clear division: Phillip’s alliance, Stealth-R-Us, was calling the shots, leaving Brandon, Erik and Brenda on the outside, looking in. Brandon: “He is treating people like garbage and I don’t like that… Inspector Gadget thought he could pull his special agent tricks but you don’t want to fight with me.”
This week we see that the social game on both tribes has not so much cracks but gaping fissures. What's wrong with Bikal besides Brandon, who's playing the best game on Gota, and when did we start failing the Bechdel Test? The lesson we should be taking away from this week's episode of Survivor is that the social game is harder than you think it is.
