With that, it’s time to vote. Jonathan votes for “Cowboy,” saying he has to take out the wildcard. Jessica votes for Jonathan, saying sorry but she lost her trust in him. Cao Boi votes for Candice, saying he hopes people stick with the plan.
Probst tallies and reads the votes: Cao Boi, Candice, Jonathan, Cao Boi, Cao Boi (uh oh, I think that pretty well ruins Plan Voodoo), Cao Boi. So he puts down the immunity idol (the big one, not the individual one) and gets his torch snuffed. Plan Voodoo got a big pin stuck in its head.
The hard part for Aitu is over. Now it’s time to eat and listen. They all move to the jury section as Raro is brought in.
In his final words, meanwhile, Cao Boi tells us it was a wonderful experience, though he didn’t make it as far as he planned. He did learn he is most vulnerable among the Asian community – people who are like her. He should have known better than to trust them. And for the record, the only people who stuck to Plan Voodoo were Cao Boi and Jessica. That doesn’t bode well for the roller girl.
Before Raro gets grilled, the food is brought out for Aitu. Oh, and Candice blows Adam a kiss. Raro looks on jealously as Aitu digs in.
But Adam says he doesn’t really like lamb or apple cider, and they have plenty of food at camp, so he’s fine. Nate says it smells good even though they did have a good octopus dinner. He says he gave the challenge all he had, but they didn’t have enough as a team.
How frustrating is it to have lost 2/3 of the challenges? Adam says it’s frustrating, but Candice set the tone by getting a good lead for the other team while wearing out the women on Raro. He smiles at Candice.
Probst notes that Raro always prided itself on physical strength. But today it didn’t work that way. Brad says maybe Aitu has a stronger team, but it’s not about one particular challenge. They really need to look at the bigger picture of who is working hard at camp and getting along with everyone.
Does Cristina have a feeling of a sinking ship with loss after loss? She says no, sometimes it just happens. They still have a chance and need to hold their heads high.
Did Brad feel badly due to the criticism Cristina took at the previous Tribal Council? He did, because everybody deserves the benefit of the doubt and sometimes things are better left unsaid.
When they got back to camp, what happened? Jenny says Cristina was angry that somebody would flat-out say she’s annoying. Aitu notices that particular statement! Jenny says it’s embarrassing.
Cristina admits it bothered her because she considered them friends and she let her guard down a bit. She doesn’t want to beat a dead horse, but it’s definitely a blow to her.
Did Adam feel like Cristina was a unified part of the tribe? He thinks so, and says she’s always been contributing – that was never an issue. It’s more that her personality “clashes with ours.” So apparently, he now speaks for the whole tribe, and the rest of the tribe has a single personality. “That’s just the way she is.”
At what point will people have to look out for themselves? Nate says it’s survival mode. But for now, they still want to come back and smoke the other tribe.
Before they vote, time for the twist. Aitu gets to kidnap one member from Raro. They will be immune from Tribal Council, will get a plate of food, sit with Aitu, and return to camp with Aitu – being a part of their tribe through the next reward challenge. Interesting.
Aitu confers among themselves and decide on… Nate. Really? I would have gone with Cristina, just to throw a wrench into their plans. But Nate is sent over to Aitu.
With that, it’s time to vote. Adam unsurprisingly votes against Cristina, saying she’s nice but the tribe is stronger without her. Brad votes Jenny, as does Cristina.
Probst tallies the votes. But before he reads them, Aitu is dismissed back to camp. Now for the reading: Jenny, Cristina, Jenny, Cristina, Cristina, Cristina. Not exactly a huge surprise there. Again, that’s why I would have saved her instead, had I been on Aitu.
In her final words, Cristina says she really enjoyed being there and is disappointed she got voted off so soon. She says she feels she got taken advantage of, which I don’t really understand (note to self: ask her about it in my interview with her). She met some really good people and some really awful people, but that’s just part of the game. Overall, it was a great experience.
Next week: Nate causes stress for Aitu as there are strategy discussions held in front of him. Ozzy’s stock skyrockets as he gets food from the trees as well as the water. And one player on Exile Island takes a beating in a nasty storm.
We’ll be back next week to find out more. Of course, before then we’ll have plenty of other coverage, including two planned interviews, two looks at why people lost, etc. So be sure to check back to RealityNewsOnline regularly.
