Cecilia agrees that the other team is more physical (with J.P., Adam, Nate, and also Brad) and calls them “the Beefcake Tribe.” By comparison, Aitu does have Yul but they also have the two older men, Jonathan and Cao Boi. She adds that Ozzy is “super-athletic, but weighs about a buck 50.” Jenna tries to make the point that big doesn’t necessarily mean strong, but Cecilia is pretty sure this challenge was about raw power. I have to agree with Cecilia.
Jenna must be back to liking Ozzy; she’s anxious to have the challenge clip run so she can look at Ozzy some more. Dalton is as exasperated with her as I, but he runs the clip. Rebecca was the last woman standing. I’m surprised Flica didn’t last longer.
Cecilia says they tried to run at the start, but that was a bad idea. She informs us the challenge only lasted about 15 minutes, and that luckily it was overcast, so it wasn’t unbearably hot.
Kane from Ohio asks if anything was not shown in the episode that might explain her boot. Cecilia says she and Ozzy were talking to Cao Boi and Flica, and Jonathan came up to them. She spilled it that Becky was their choice to go. She regrets that she blurted it out; she shouldn’t have revealed the plan. She adds that there was no big reason for Becky to be the one they picked on; she hadn’t done anything wrong, it was just a “not me” thing.
Dalton discusses Jenna’s Haterade. Last week it was over the “frat boy mentality” of J.P. and Ozzy. This week, Ozzy is cute again and Jonathan’s aggression is her target. Jenna doesn’t like they way he was getting into Flica’s face. Dalton says, “But you know what? It worked.”
Discussing Jonathan, Cecilia says, “He seems to have no qualms about doing whatever it takes. Maybe it wasn’t the best place for me to be, in a reality show that is a contest, but I have a real life to go back to. I don’t want to embarrass myself. I’m going to see these people again and I don’t want it to be all bad, I want it to be positive and good.” Jenna explains, “See, you have to be ready to embarrass yourself on this show.”
I’m thinking Cecilia is right; she had no place being on this show, and those of us who are lucky will all forget her quickly. If you can’t “outwit, outplay, outlast,” then you shouldn’t be taking a spot that tens of thousands others covet.
Thankfully, moving to our next caller finds Kellen from Kansas. Most of his multi-part question gets ignored, but they do address why Sundra’s name never came up in the boot discussions. Cecilia says Sundra was on her and Ozzy’s side. I think you’d need to ask the five who voted Cecilia out that question.
Dalton remembers that Jonathan stole Yul’s chickens, and it’s odd they are now allies.
Cecilia again says that Yul and Jonathan probably explained their version of the game to Cao Boi and Flica better than she did. Cecilia saw Flica’s laid-back attitude and thought not pushing her was a better idea. Obviously, that was an error.
The caller (Kellen) also mentions that Dalton talked about Cecilia’s socks. Her boyfriend is a ball player and she was “representing with the baseball socks.” Also, she wore the one sock to protect her knee and a badly scraped shin that still has a scar on it. A still from the show shows Flica with two green knee socks pulled up high and Cecilia with one up, one down.
Dalton next introduces “Probst’s Thoughts,” where Jeff Probst records a message to the departing player. He starts out hesitantly, choosing his words very carefully. Probst wonders if Cecilia was using sexuality in the game. He thinks Cecilia didn’t realize she had that effect and was playing “a very cagey game.”
Cecilia doesn’t know what Jeff is talking about. She admits to flirting with J.P., but it was “innocent and cute.” She adds that Ozzy has a girlfriend. Dalton mentions that Billy is available, but Cecilia wrinkles up her nose and says, “I may take a pass on that.”
Jenna mentions Parvati’s flirting, but the jury’s out on its effectiveness. Cecilia mentions how it didn’t work for Misty last season. Jenna says, “It’s never worked since my season.” Jenna adds that she didn’t go into the game planning to flirt, it just developed.
Greg from Oakland asks if Cecilia is single (yes, but dating) and if there’s any behind-the-scenes romancing going on (no, just J.P. and her).
The third segment always begins with the new “minus ten” feature, where Dalton reads ten categories and Cecilia comments on each in less than ten words. Here’s how it plays out:
Number eight generates some charming conversation about Survivor potty arrangements. Jenna wonders if anyone still digs a latrine on this show. Cecilia says they didn’t; they were told to just go in the jungle and “mark your hole. You don’t want to dig up somebody else’s surprises.”
Katherine from Connecticut asks if it’s ironic that the people Cecilia chose for her team ended up sending her home. Specifically, Cecilia chose Flica with her pick, but Flica voted her out. She wishes she’d ended up on “the Beefcake Tribe.”
Dalton says Cao Boi is no conformist, and was surprised he flipped his vote so readily. Cecilia says Jonathan may not have convinced him, but Yul had more influence with him.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
