Liar. Liarliarliarliarliarliar. Liarliar.
Seriously, since when
is making strategic moves and alliances dishonest and makes you unlikeable? Sierra can't force anyone to vote anyone else out. Her alliance screwed her over, basically, but finally wised up and realized that Tyson would be likely going to final 4 if he stayed. (Unfortunately, next week they'll dumb down and decide to go for Sierra. Hello, Coach, you've entirely forgotten Jalapao+Erinn hates her).
Tyson going? A bit obvious, although I was nervous for a second when Sierra lost (Thank you, Debbie, for winning something
). I thought it was funny when he said, "Now I know what Brendan feels like!" No way
JT has now gotten over puppy status and has risen above - into scheming backstabber, the highest position in Survivor you can possibly have. I don't like him much at all anymore, because his ego has inflated to Coach-size proportions. Stephen has now taken Tyson's place as tribe weasel. Taj is floating more than Erinn and Debbie combined if that's even possible. So as for the Jalapao 3, well, they'll probably make their way into the final 3, but I only think Taj is tolerable. Tajerable.
The music that they were playing when Coach was doing anything (meditating, having weird conversations with Sierra) was, er, interesting. I think he should change his nickname to 'Zeus' after this. Or maybe 'Seppuku'. And the reward challenge? That seemed more fake than Miracle Whip. Really, why was everybody wearing the same clothes? I mean, that couldn't just have been coincedince so at the very least TPTB was changing that. And ironically, too, there's an interesting cycle of reality TV going around. TAR2 - The detour requires teams to find the Girl from Impanema. America's Next Top Model, Cycle 12, this week's episode - Teams had to find the girl from Impanema and had a challenge involving capoeria. Survivor: Tocantins? Capoeria. I find that unique. And thank you, Erinn, for comparing your upset stomach to a kid in a ball pen.
I think Debbie has a shot of winning this now for some reason. I think Debbie is very likeable, even if she has her head stuck up Coach's butt and is kind of a whack job (she needs real food more often).
Plus I think if anything the remaining castaways are going to take out Coach before they will Debbie. (Although, again, they're going to take out Sierra because she's A) a liar B) a hypocrite C) annoying [apparently]).
And now for the new power group collectively, something I'd like to call the Reactionary Alliance. Does Timbira seem ominous over your tribe? Side with
Timbira, save your butt and vote out Brendan. Are you still worried? Vote out Sierra? Still worried? Well, you're in power now so it doesn't matter. Coach honestly thought that his Warrior Alliance could last all the way (although, really, this isn't Survivor: Cuddlebuddies. You can't take 7 people into the final 3). Tyson didn't, but he still went along with it. Why did the Reactionaries buy into this? Tyson, Coach, and Debbie were at a disadvantage from the start because Erinn flips sides more often than a presidential campaign, but still, They all looked happy when Tyson said he loved everybody (and Sierra is still a liar!). They should've been tipped off at "I love Coach." He might as well have said, "Are you that stupid to believe in me?". They, though, now have control of the game, a scary concept in my opinion. And that is NOT going to change. As much as I'd love to believe it, Sierra does NOT have control of this game. Coach doesn't. Debbie doesn't. Erinn doesn't. Taj doesn't. Stephen and JT do, although mostly because of this stupid 'battle' idea relating to tribal power floating around. In the end, both warriors will die anyway.
And as for next week? I'm just about ready now to believe next week that the remaining castaways can take hypocrisy to a new level. I hope I'm wrong. I pray I'm wrong. I'm right.
