Jenna thinks the kissing is gross without having the opportunity to brush their teeth. Candice says they sort of brushed their teeth, using hibiscus bark. However, Jeff Probst was always telling them, “You guys stink!” so who knows how effective that was.
Jessie in Kansas City is also very young and also loves Ozzy. She asks Candice if she actually called Jonathan “a rat.” Candice is not positive, but is pretty sure that she did. I can confirm it; it was in the first clip Dalton aired at the top of this show. Dalton likes Sundra’s comment that Jonathan is “an obnoxious force.”
Dalton reiterates that he likes Jonathan’s game but he’s still not a subtle player. Jenna calls him “abrasive” again but follows that by saying, “He’s making a great show.” Dalton notes the irony that Candice, Adam, and Parvati were all over Jonathan for switching sides, but they had no problem with it at the time he flipped over to bolster Raro’s numbers.
Candice says she was surprised Jonathan stepped off the mat to mutiny, and that Sundra didn’t.
Candice says Jonathan is “a loud personality,” and you have to deal with all types of personalities out there. If you let it get to you, you’re limiting your options. Well said! Dalton jokes that he’s glad he doesn’t have to work with any loud personalities.
Dalton runs a clip that is the part of the auction where Candice is banished to Exile Island once again. In the studio, she laughs. Jenna thinks it’s funny that Yul pretended to be surprised that Candice was the one Becky banished. She calls Yul a puppet-master. No, there will never be better puppet-masters that initial winner Richard Hatch or Survivor: Thailand’s Brian Hediuk.
Dalton asks Candice how she dealt with being on Exile Island so often. Candice says she made fire out there to keep herself warm. Hey, that skill could have come in handy at a Tribal Council tiebreaker! Candice jokes that, at least this last time, she didn’t have to dig any more big holes. She says it was tough out there, like getting beat up over and over again. Jenna asks her if the mutiny was worth all the exiles, and Candice responds that at least she was still in the game.
Dalton asks Candice what it was like to be seen as one of the villains after the mutiny. Candice says it was weird seeing on TV that they became bad guys. It didn’t feel like that when they were out there. She suspects that had they won, the edit might have been different. Candice adds that in the ten seconds they had to think about it, the possibility of an extended backlash didn’t cross her mind.
Dalton asks her thoughts when Jonathan stepped out as well. She says it was, “Wow. Oh, goodness… we’re going to have some work to do!” Her immediate trashing of Jonathan was done on purpose, because she wanted them not to be seen as a threatening and solid twosome by the rest of Raro.
Jenna asks if Candice felt the rest of the tribe saw her and Adam as a threat. Candice says Adam had already spoken about her to the rest of Raro and she couldn’t deny their relationship. She also says that because Adam had already spilled it, they knew her move wasn’t “shady.”
In one of the longest question the show has ever had, it takes Michael in Atlanta ninety seconds to ask why they saw Jonathan as a rat. Candice says she wasn’t ready to vote Jonathan out right after the mutiny. She knew both of them were playing for themselves.
Jenna says Jonathan is “final two opponent gold” right now. She sees upcoming discussions over booting him as possibly the point where Aitu’s game turns ugly.
Dalton mentions the trio saying they would not vote for Yul if he didn’t get rid of Jonathan. He implies displeasure with that pronouncement. Candice says it was a ploy to try and change the vote, but doesn’t see anything wrong with it. Dalton thinks it’s fine as a bluff, but thinks it’s a poor reason to decide the winner of the game, bordering on classless. Jenna says the best player doesn’t always win, and Amber’s win of Survivor: All-Stars is implied.
Dalton next introduces the “Probst’s Thoughts” feature, where a message is played that Jeff Probst previously recorded about the departing player. He remembers Candice promised to manipulate the boys if she had to. He says she’s bright and would be a threat if she lasted, because she knows how to read people and was willing to make moves necessary to stay in the game.
Candice basically agrees with that assessment. She wanted to keep her options open in the game and not have just one strategy. She didn’t want to ride coattails and instead, be in control of her own fate. Dalton notes that all players seemed to liked her until she mutinied.
Starting the final segment as usual is the “minus 10” feature, where Dalton reads ten rapid-fire categories for the guest to comment on, each in ten words or less. Here’s how it went:
I must confess I don’t understand number three – does anyone remember a scene with a PDA? Did Candice have her PDA to help pass the time on Exile Island? Associate Editor’s Note: PDA stands for Public Displays of Affection!
Valerie in Texas asks Candice her opinion of her Raro tribemates after she mutinied. In Raro the mood was lighter, there was more laughing and joking, and it had a younger feel. On Aitu there was more thinking and strategizing but on Raro “that was more like their part-time job.” She didn’t get to spend a lot of time with those voted out before her on Raro, because of all her time on Exile Island.
Jeannie from New Jersey would like folks to leave Jonathan alone, because he’s playing a game and doing okay, and she’s concerned how this is perceived by his family and friends. Jenna says everyone has family and on this show, it’s their job to make and express their opinions based on game play. Dalton correctly says he hasn’t said anything bad about Jonathan except to critique his strategy moves. Jenna says he’s a big factor in the water cooler talk this season. Dalton feels controversial people like Jonathan, Shane, and Fairplay make the show interesting.
Shannon from California liked Candice initially but was “disappointed and shattered” over last night’s tirade against Jonathan. She feels she stepped over a line when it got personal and wonders if there are any regrets on Candice’s part. Candice says in the moment she felt hurt, and she knew she was hurting her chances in the game. That seems to contradict opening statements when she said she knew she was done for at the time of the tirade, but whatever. She says didn’t make any of it up because everyone else did say those things. Candice ends by saying she didn’t want it to get ugly and hurt anyone else’s feelings.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
