I love Survivor. I don't think I'm going to ever forget this special tribal. I think that's what makes Survivor so much more relatable for me more than Amazing Race now. I can travel the world, pay my own flights as an adult now, and I don't need Amazing Race to bring me any special experiences. The unique part of Survivor is that the jury stays together and votes for a winner, and only once in a while we have a bitter jury who cannot work together and come to a common logical consensus to give the more deserving winner the money. But The Amazing Race is different, you have people of different ability to go on the show, and normally, it really takes a lot of luck to have a strong, plus good team with good character to win the game. But it's different for Survivor. Usually, it's the more deserving player who wins, and that makes people happy.
Today, I got to see how people can stand up for their rights to protect a stranger they've barely known for two weeks. People clearly know what's right or what's wrong. And I'm just shocked that while I know from the many scenes and screentime that Varner may not be the nicest person, he is willing to throw people under the bus just to stay alive. Three times, and three times non-jury. The third game, he's finally memorable. I think some people are just meant to play Survivor, while some people are just not. Varner puts in way too much emotions into these game and he's never ever going to win this game, even if you give him a million chances.
Thank God for Jeff for standing up for Zeke and putting Varner in his place as well. And I am so thankful that Sarah, Andrea, Debbie and Tai spoke up for Zeke. Notice that Ozzy has been quiet (maybe it was edited away...??). And the irony that Zeke was the one to tell Varner that it's all going to be okay.
Why isn't this episode titled Metamorphosis?
