Back to Jenna and Butch. Jenna would probably like to see Rob go because neither Butch nor Matt have ever done anything to her – only Rob has screwed her. Butch is excited at the thought of a youngest-oldest alliance, but nothing appears to be set in stone.
At the other twosome, Rob is pleading with Matt not to screw him over. Matt says he’ll do his best to keep Rob around. He notes that Rob doesn’t have a good relationship with Jenna and has no relationship with Butch. So Matt know he is the only one who can keep Rob in the game.
So now it’s Matt’s turn to talk to Jenna. He says he knows Rob has screwed her and Butch never screwed anyone, but then he never really did anything. Rob has betrayed people but he’s playing the game. So, how does she feel about a secret alliance based on a shared voting strategy that evening. Then, whoever wins the last immunity challenge will select the other to go into the final two. They agree. Jenna says it’s a strategic move on her part but Matt could still lie. However, he has to remember that she will be on the jury. Matt says privately that he will either honor that agreement or do some backstabbing.
So, it’s Tribal Council. Host Jeff Probst asks Butch if he’s exhausted. Butch replied that it’s a wonderful feeling to be there and he’s accomplished more than he’s ever dreamed about. So, how did you do it? Butch says he didn’t make lot of loud and noisy comments, didn’t put anybody down, and looked for the good in everybody. What about Matt? He says he had a multifaceted strategy based on honesty and versatility (this answer gets a look from Alex like “What?!”). Rob answers the same question by saying he’s been asking himself that question. He says he’s been fortunate. When he zigs, he should have zigged; when he zags, he should have zagged. He’s very very lucky, and he’s taken risks that have mostly paid off.
Probst moves to Jenna and says at times he thought she would just say she’s had enough. But she’s in final four with immunity. Jenna says she’s had some really high highs and some really low lows. She wanted to quit but knew she would have kicked herself for doing so.
Rob is asked how important immunity was? Pretty damn important! Probst moves back to Jenna and asks if it was an interesting time after she got immunity. Did all the guys approach her? Yes, she talked to them all. She says she was probably the next to go, so it’s a big switch. It’s different to have bit of control considering that in the last three or so days she had none.
Butch is asked what he will base his vote on. He flat-out says strategy to stay in game. He hustled today to try to stay in. (Where was all that hustle and strategy before, Butch?!) Rob is asked what kind of maneuvering he has done? He says he tried to make her lunch, told her she looked beautiful, etc. (This all gets an evil look from Heidi in the jury.) Seriously, he says there is nothing they do now to change her mind. It has to do with what they did before she had that power. (This is something both Jenna and Heidi found out when they were trying to get Christy to vote their way.)
We see Rob vote for Butch, saying, “I don’t think all the firewood in the forest is going to keep our torch lit tonight, buddy. Nice game.” Butch votes for Rob, wishing him the very best and saying he’s a good kid.
The votes are read: Butch, Rob, Butch, Butch. Butch leaves, saying goodbye and wishing them luck. And you know with Butch, he really means it. Matt looks devastated by the vote – a nice show for the jury, I think.
Butch provides us with his final words: He just experienced the adventure of a lifetime. He will never forget the past 37 days. He feels that he played hard and well. The sign he brought about believing in yourself – he meant it. You can do it if you have goals. Look at him, I made it thru Survivor! Anyway, if you want to read about why Butch lost, make sure to check out the article by that very name: Why Butch Lost.
With Butch gone, the final three head back to camp. And it’s the attack of the killer moths! This is particularly strange because Rob says they hadn’t seen a single moth in 37 days. Alright, enough of that. Moving on.
Day 38. They’re having a big breakfast. These folks really know how to party! It’s 16 to 17 manioc patties for ‘em. Woohoo! Jenna says it’s the best day of her life, with nuts out the ass and all the manioc. If she stripped for peanut butter and cookies earlier and she’s this happy about nuts and manioc, imagine what she would do for some good food now!
Their final treemail comes, and it’s a scale. The producers couldn’t even spring for one that measures in pounds. The message on it says they can “see what’s left of you.” Jenna says she looked off to the left. Rob asks if somebody says to her, “that’s right,” does she turn to the right? Heh.
So they weigh themselves and convert to pounds. Matt lost 28 pounds, Rob says his body has deteriorated and he’s lost almost a pound a day. Jenna weighs 99 pounds, down from 118. She says it’s not good to lose that much, but it will be very fun to gain it all back. Wonder if she’ll have to strip every time she eats a peanut butter sandwich while she’s gaining back the weight…
Probst shows up to visit them in camp and has big news. They get a seaplane ride to take in all the sights of the Amazon from above. Oooh. Ahhh. You just don’t quite get the scenery from a recap, I’m afraid. Anyway, then they are dropped off at a new, smaller canoe, and have to follow a map to their next destination. There they find beads, paints, feathers, and one headdress each. They are to adorn their bodies like Amazon warriors did for battle.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 Next-->
