kim confesses to troy: posted ITT. Kim tells Troy Jay outed his idol within moments of Troy telling him he had it. Troy is flabbergasted that 'Mr. Christian Guy' ran right to Kim and told her about Troy's plan to blindside her. I assume that means Troy sees himself as the metaphorical God and Kim as the metaphorical Satan (which is probably apt, but Jay didn't know that). I mean, Jay thought he was in an alliance with Troy AND Kim. What is Mr. Christian Guy supposed to do when one alliance member is telling him he is going to target another alliance member? Meanwhile, that other alliance member is telling him they are targeting someone NOT in their alliance. Poor Jay didn't know who was telling him the truth.
it could be me tonight (kim): Kim very afraid of Troy. He's a very convincing guy. She can see the end, but here's Troyzan. He's all over her case and she doesn't know why, but he's right and it's frustrating. She goes thru all the scenarios of what could go wrong and end up in her being sent home. (Appears she was more concerned than she showed at TC.)
i probably should have waited (Sab): Sabrina regrets jumping the gun on the food because she wanted her letter...then the clue. (Personally, I think Troy would have probably made it through without the challenge help.) Sab doesn't really care for Christina, but she was glad she was trying to outbid him for the challenge advantage. Also, no sympathy for Troy feeling all alone.
i needed this (troy): He had food envy, but saved his money for the challenge advantage. Was annoyed Christina bid him up. Was annoyed other people encouraged Christina to bid him up. Was not smart enough to insta-bid $500 to make sure he got the clue. (Also, probably didn't need the advantage. He IS competitive after all.)
I'm mad about that (Kim): It sucks that Troy had the advantage today. She agrees with me that Troy probably would have won the challenge anyway. (Albert definitely would have needed to skip the knots though.) She is totally in favor of the post challenge drama which ensued. Common nemesis and all. "It's us against Troyzan" Kim is amused by it all. Troy is acting crazy, she doesn't blame him...she thinks it might be part of his game, but it's possible he just lost his mind.
a piece of home (Alicia): Alicia's favorite thing is a wallet full of money. Homegirl can spend some money. She planned on NOT spending her money (she was mentally spending it back at home). Then, she lost her mind and snap bid $500 for her letters. She didn't regret it. She's not the same person that jumped off the truck in the beginning of the game. She wants to be the best person she can be. Loves her family. These letters can take her to the end. Teary eyed. Feels badly about bidding so much that other people couldn't afford their letters, but glad she got her piece of home.
a lot in common (Alicia): Alicia and Tarzan are both tough skinned, they don't wear their emotions on their sleeves...they are cold as ice when it comes to showing their emotions. Both planned not to spend their money, then broke down and bought their letters. (She forgot to mention how tactless they both are.)
letter from my soul mate (Tarzan): Planned on starving and buying some shocks with his $500. Was thinking how stupid these people were for paying $400 for peanut butter. Then, Jeff brought out the letters and Alicia snap bid $500 and Tarzan thought he had missed his chance. He broke down while Alicia was reading her letter, and was surprised when Jeff decided to offer the rest of the letters for $500 each. He jumped at it with no remorse. He and his wife are always together. He chose to read his letter in private out of respect for his wife, Tweety.
$400 for chips (Sab): Never would have believed she would have paid $400 for chips and guac.
why I didn't outbid Troyzan (Christina): She didn't want to get Troy upset at her, also the clue is not a guaranteed win. blah blah
she could have made a big move (kat): Christina could have made a big move. Does Kat thinks she's an idiot? She's thought she was an idiot since day one. (Pretty sure if she watched Christina's secret scene she would think she was an idiot. But at least Christina didn't attempt to bid $30.) "What a jerk! She could definitely have pulled something out for the tribe right there." Kat thinks it was Christina's duty to light $500 on fire. Kat would have done it, but she had paid like $200 for some donuts or some $#!%.
secret scene leif 1: Leif losing his mind about not getting his letter once they got back to camp. Trying to get people to give him money so he can afford to buy his letter. Sabrina giving him the crazy eyes and telling him the auction is over.
made out like a bandit (kim): Regretted the $240 peanut butter. She only got a couple bites before she started feeling sick. Slightly remorseful about the challenge advantage and the letters, but...whatever.
one crazy night (troy): Troy still insisting this is his island. He is trying to instill fear in their hearts. He's still having a ball.
tarzan meets the rhino beetle:
proud of myself (tarzan): Proud of himself for doing well in the challenge. Had we (the coalition) won that, Troy would have been going home. He (Tarzan) is one of the ones who isn't in the nucleus of the four. Tonight he will be at the mercy of the others...how they see him and if they want to keep him a bit longer.
leif the day after: This was one of the most number one experiences of his entire life. (Crimeny.) This was really...something else...that is so hard to explain with words (touche). We should cherish every moment on this earth and so forth. Oh...I hope he doesn't hurt himself trying to think about what he could have done differently. He thinks if he voted for Tarzan and forced a tie, he might have gotten Troy's vote on a revote and still have been in the game--as if the others are still going to split their vote on the revote.
Bless his heart. Very sweet. He had no chance.
Tearful on the way out. His wife and baby will be very proud of him. He gave it his all. Dr. Liza (the Survivor psychologist) is patting his back in the car as he sobs. Leif lost 15 lbs. He is shocked he made it this far...to the jury. "I guess all those girls really lied to me."
Mike says 'come to papa,' picks Leif up and gives him a bear hug...then hands him to Jay. LOL. (I'm crying over here.)
Jay: The ladies are mean. I came into this game not trustin' em. I left the game not trustin' em. Hopefully somebody else can figure it out before it's too late.
Jonas: As usual, Tarzan has no clue what he's doing and he just screws it up for everyone else.
Mike: The girls have control of the game. Pretty soon they will have to start eating each other.
It's going to be fun to watch. Tribal's fun. I like watching Troy squirm a little bit. He was my arch enemy out there, but now he has nothing left. He has to win every immunity.
(Not surprisingly, they are having to fill up Leif's
Ponderosa with scenes from the other players.)
They gave Jonas a fish. He's making sushi. They are having to fight flies for their fish. I'm taken aback.
Jonas is taking over Simon's kitchen. Jonas playing guitar. He seems to have all the skills. Jonas is killing ponderosa.
Troy temperature seems a little chillier than I expected. Not sure if it's because they are all resigned to the women dominating and they don't want to entertain futile hopes. Perhaps they have 'still in the game' envy. Perhaps they blame Troy for their own demise.
The Leif footage is super awkward.
