Despite the promise of potential excitement in last week’s previews, this episode of Survivor limps into the merge with a fairly predictable thud. But there was at least one notable element: Dale actually executed the plan we proposed last week! And did it work flawlessly, like we said it would? Of course it did, because we are never wrong.
Once again, we “play the rice card” by talking about whether the payment Jeff demanded was reasonable. Did Jeff lose this negotiation? Should future Survivor players abandon the concept of rationing? And hey, did you guys notice how frequently and casually Survivor was showing affection between gay guys? We discuss all of these things, and also go into a brief discussion on the best player in this episode and the best player of the season. Andy makes a bold (read: wrong) case for the season’s best player.
The Zero Percent Club doesn’t get the busload of new members that it got last week, but there’s only so much room left in the land of Zero Percent. And Quit Club seems to be down to one option, which is definitely the player we’ve been suggesting all along (note: do not go back and try to verify this). For the first time this season, John’s prediction on who was going home turned out to be correct. Will that streak hold next week? And in this relatively short episode, does Robot Andy have time to get a few words in? You bet he does.
