It’s interesting that Jenny has taken up belly dancing, as according to the CBS bios, Rebecca’s stepmother was a professional belly dancer. It was also odd that Jenny stumbled over describing the word game Scrabble.
Michael in Philly likes the twists that have played out in the last two weeks. He notes Nate was vocal about his dislike of Jonathan jumping tribes, yet hypocritically, three votes later Jonathan is still there. Rebecca says, “He tends to buckle under pressure, and majority rules, and he just went with the majority.” Jenna asks who the majority is, and Rebecca says, “Adam, Parvati, and Candice.” Dalton calls them “Team Whitey,” and Jenny says, “It’s safer for you to say that.”
Charlene in Toronto asks if Jenny felt the merge was coming after Rebecca was voted out. Yes.
As Dalton prepares to play the clip of Aitu celebrating reward, Jenna feigns disgust over his man-love for Yul. Luckily for her, there’s some Ozzy in there, too. All agree that this was one great reward to have won. Dalton tells us that while the clip was running, Jenna just talked about how cute Ozzy is. Jenna tells us, “I think I’ve even convinced Ethan that he has a crush on him, too.” Just shoot me.
The next caller is Jonathan from Chicago, who asks both guests what their most memorable moments were. He adds that he has additional questions for Jenny he’s going to post to her in MySpace, but Jenna interjects that Jenny cannot answer her MySpace questions until after the finale has aired. Jenny answers that it was just “the overall experience.” She really wanted the letters from home and was devastated when she didn’t get to see hers. In fact, she had a confessional where she couldn’t stop crying. As she now watches the show, it reminds her of many little things that happened, and it makes her feel nice. Rebecca says that for her it was “starting a fire and gutting a chicken.” She promises she won’t be gutting any more chickens in her life!
Dalton brings out the bottle with the secret message in it. It contains Jenna Morasca’s “Question of the Week,” which is, “What are you going to do now?” Both are returning to their jobs. No surprise there, as finishing in the middle of the pack doesn’t generate the cash to support a significant change in lifestyle. Rebecca adds that she wants to compete on Dancing With the Stars, even if she’s not a star.
Dalton asks the ladies reactions to being told the tribes were to be defined along ethnic lines. Jenny says initially she was a little bit uncomfortable, but she is used to representing Filipino-Americans at home and is proud of it. Rebecca was also taken aback initially and hoped that had it continued longer, it might help to break down some stereotypes. Dalton agrees; it ought to have gone on longer, but they find four tribes difficult to track. I find printing out RealityNewsOnline preview articles and keeping them handy is a wonderful aid to following the early rounds of all the shows we cover.
The final caller is Jenny’s friend Amy from Paylocity. There’s no question, just some girl-friendly love for Jenny.
The final piece of business is running the CBS promo. Jonathan hits a breaking point; at Aitu, Yul shares his secret; and things heat up between Adam and Candice.
Dalton apologizes to the many callers left on hold and reminds us again that although Survivor: Cook Islands will air at its regular time Thursday, the next episode of this show will be 2 p.m. Monday afternoon, not Friday. Jenna bottle-dances us out, and we are done!
CBS Website Clues:
This week’s question asks if there has even been an entire season when votes were recorded against only two players in every Tribal Council. Yup, twice actually… Survivor: Africa and Survivor: All-Stars.
