Then Billy breaks out with a statement that his prize is not even the million dollars, but love at first sight – “her name is Candice.” This gives us a great “what the heck?!” shot of Probst almost jumping out of his seat and Cristina and Cecilia bursting out laughing. Probst asks, “Candice? From Raro tribe?” Yup. Because after the last challenge, they mouthed the words, “I love you,” to each other. Oh my. Has he ever misread that situation! It’s hard to describe without you having seen it, but no way Candice was declaring her true love for him. It was just an off the cuff remark on her part, and I can only imagine how embarrassed Billy will be watching it.
Probst says he’s never heard anything that surprised him more than what Billy just said. And remember, this is Probst’s 13th season of doing this! Probst says he wants to be respectful because he doesn’t know what happened, but what would Candice base such a feeling on? Billy says it’s just love at first sight. Billy assures us that he is “dead serious.” J.P. obviously can’t believe what he’s hearing. And Cristina, if she made a deal with Billy, has to be thinking, “Oh my, I hooked my wagon to a nutball.”
Probst asks Ozzy if he’s noticed anything between Candice and Billy. No, but he says he’s not looking for it and it’s news to him just like it was news to Probst. What’s J.P.’s take? He says from the beginning, Billy was shady. So if J.P. seems insensitive to it, “it’s just random.” He can’t figure out what to make of it.
Cristina says anything’s possible, but she feels very leery for Billy. She doesn’t want him to get hurt. On that note, it’s time to vote.
Not surprisingly, J.P. votes against Billy, saying if he can’t trust him now, he won’t be able to later on. And Billy, of course, votes against Ozzy, saying he is the best player in the Aitu tribe.
Probst tallies and reads the votes: Billy, Ozzy, Billy, and Billy. Billy hugs Cristina (watch it, Candice will be jealous!) and gets up to have his torch snuffed before walking away.
Probst tells the remaining four that two issues emerged – work ethic and trust. It sounds like they dealt with the first, but what about the second? With that, he sends them back to camp.
In his last words, Billy says he came in wanting to play the game of Survivor and got to live that dream. He thinks it’s kind of cool that the heavy metal guy got eliminated by a guy named Ozzy. His biggest regret is that he didn’t play the way he wishes he would have and didn’t represent himself well in the beginning. But he won’t regret anything because he got to live the dream. He ends by saying it’s too bad there wasn’t a heavy metal tribe because he would have fit in well there.
And, for the record, the entire tribe, Cristina included, voted against Billy.
Next week: Mother Nature bites back, as an octopus doesn’t like being speared. Parvati works her womanly charms on Adam (it’s like a love quadrangle – Adam and Candice and Billy and Parvati!). And Cao Boi turns up the volume. I guess it goes to 11.
Well, that was an… interesting episode. I still can’t believe what Billy said and how badly he misinterpreted the situation. Probst’s reaction was absolutely hysterical, and I hope they make it one of the pictures available on the CBS website. Classic. It’s only too bad he wasn’t drinking something so he could have done a spit-take.
Anyway, the throwing of the challenge worked… for now. We’ll see what happens in later episodes. I still don’t think it was a very good idea.
