After the women get back and some amount of time has elapsed, we see Christy working hard to strip down branches for the shelter. The other women are, well, sitting around. It is quite obvious that she is annoyed. In case it's not, she privately tells us that this is the laziest group she's ever been around. Some are really slacking and it's pissing her off!
Deena claims Christy then went off on them for not working. She says it really set her off but rather than argue, she just walked away. Then Deena comes back with a bunch of branches and fronds, tosses them at Christy's feet, and says she should build away. Christy retorts that she's gonna go fishing instead. Ouch.
Again privately with Christy, she says she feels separate from the group. She notes that Jenna hasn't spoken to her in the five days they've been there.
She says she acted the way she did with the shelter because she didn't want to be the only one doing it. So then they decide they want to and she should just go according to their schedule? Like I said above, she's quite annoyed.
Deena tells the camera that if Christy gets voted out, it will be because of her personality, not her disability. Of course, what Deena doesn't seem to understand is that she doesn't feel like part of the group because of that disability and the way the others are treating her, which is why she is acting the way she is.
Janet feels that it will be her or Christy voted out tonight. She calls the group together to say that she knows it's gotten around that she was supposedly the one who brought the granola bar, and she says it wasn't her. She adds that if they want to vote her off, that's fine, but they shouldn't do it for that reason. Well said, Janet. She also adds privately that she will be voting for Jeanne because she knows Jeanne was the one who started pointing the finger at her.
Time for Tribal Council. Probst begins by asking Jan who has emerged as a leader type. Janet says that JoAnna is a strong woman and they really rely on her and Deena for a lot of the labor. Deena is asked about how they accomplish things like building a shelter. Deena responds that they don't really have a shelter - just a mish mash mess. JoAnna says they can't build all day 'cus they need fire and water. Probst basically sums it up by noting that they have no plan.
He turns next to Christy and asks if there are things not being done that she could do better. Yes - the shelter should have been built by now, she says. JoAnna, Christy's biggest fan, chimes in that somebody asked her to help with the shelter earlier and she said she was gonna go fishing. Christy points out that this happened today after an earlier discussion and she was pissed at the time. Indeed, JoAnna is either being a bitch again to bring this up as if it happened exactly the way she claimed, or she is working with incomplete information and doesn't know the whole story.
Probst stays with Christy and asks if she feels excluded. Yes. Because she's deaf? Yes. What signs has she gotten that this is the case? She says when something important is going on in camp, she never knows about it - they never bother to tell her. And when she does come around to find things out, they walk away. She works harder than any of them and yet she feels alone.
Jenna says she finds it insulting to say they exclude her on purpose. They are women living in a jungle so reactions are going to happen.
Um… what? I find it interesting the way Jenna phrased that - about excluding her "on purpose." She made a point of that. But to me what it says is, even if true, they have not made any effort to include her. And maybe they shouldn't - that's a piece of overall strategy and up to them. But then they shouldn't act all offended about it.
As far as Christy goes, I know why she's mad and don't claim to understand what she's going through, but I believe she's not handling it as well as she could. She should have stopped talking before she claimed to be doing more work than any of them. That was just not smart.
It's time to vote.
Heidi votes for Janet, saying she knows Janet wants out, she was sick at first and it's hard to catch up.
JoAnna votes for Christy, saying they need physical strength but her attitude stinks. (Hello, pot? This is kettle.)
Christy votes for Jenna. No explanation given.
Janet votes for Jeanne, saying she's incredibly strong but too aggressive.
The votes are counted. The ones we saw for Christy, Jenna, and Jeanne are the only ones cast for them. Everybody else targets Janet, though whether because she was sick or because they believed the granola bar story, we don't know. All we do know is that there is a lot of fracturing in this tribe.
Probst says he hopes tomorrow morning brings some much-needed change to the tribe. Yeah, well, that depends on if JoAnna preaches all night again.
Janet's last words are that it was amazing, but she is not an Amazon women. She advises other middle aged women who are having a mid-life crisis to get a new hairstyle instead of going on Survivor!
Well, in the first episode we found out how unlikable some of the men could be. In this one, we found out the same about the women (well, and more about Roger). What a fun bunch!
Next week: Jaburu can't get it together, and they have poor hygiene in camp. But then the show apparently turns into one of those sorority movies where everybody gets naked in the pond!
