Immunity Challenge: Recollection
This is the week’s immunity challenge. Adam does surprisingly well at this mental challenge, beating the rest of the tribe to immunity and getting himself a few more days on the island. I can’t help but wonder if Yul and Becky were feeling confident enough to go ahead and throw this one given their numbers and Yul’s possession of the idol.
Parvati Speaks Out
This clip takes place after the infamous food conflict. Parvati sits with the Aitu alliance. Jonathan asks her what she, Adam, and Candice were doing in the shelter while the others were all working on the meal. Parvati says that Candice is their friend and they wanted to talk to her before she left. They were reminiscing and Parvati feels hurt that they treated the three like that. She’s especially hurt because Yul is all about heart and caring and respecting everyone. She wants to know, “Where was that?” She thinks if this had happened to Yul, he would have felt really hurt. Yul does look like he feels really bad about the whole thing and Parvati seems genuinely sad.
Candice sounds pretty down in this brief interview. She notes that she lost immunity and it looks like there’s a strong probability she’s going home. She’s pretty mad. There’s a brief scene of the three amigos – Parvati, Candice, and Adam – strategizing about trying a last-ditch attempt to target Jonathan. Candice doesn’t look like she thinks it will work, but she notes that Jonathan seems to annoy everyone, so they’ll try. But she acknowledges that it’s unlikely the others will agree to vote him out. And she’s right.
Candice & Sundra
In this clip it is raining. Sundra tries to hug Candice, but she’s too upset. Candice is crying while Sundra looks on sympathetically. Candice says its hurtful to think that someone like Jonathan, who is a rat and screwed over everyone, and played dirty all the way around... when she doesn’t feel like she has... Candice trails off and then says she knows it’s going to be her tonight. Methinks Candice isn’t being entirely honest with herself here. I wonder if Sundra wanted to say, “Hey, blondie, you mutinied your ass right out of our alliance first!”
The tribe is clearly divided in their voting, but not in the dramatically tense way they were last week.
Ozzy votes for Candice. “Been wanting to vote you out for a long, long time. You just eat a lot. You betrayed us and you don’t deserve to win. So, see you later.”
Sundra votes for Candice. “Hey, Candice, of course you know this has never been personal. It’s all a strategy. You know I know you had to tell me a couple of lies as part of your strategy to get me over to you, but I hope our closeness wasn’t just strategy and I hope we can still be friends after this because there’s more than the game. And I really mean that. I hope it’s the same on your part.”
Jonathan votes for Candice. “It was never personal. We always planned to go all the way together and I did plan on that. When we jumped ship, the opportunity came around for me to go the other way. Mathematically, it made complete sense, and I’m not going to sacrifice myself for you. Tonight, you showed me your true colors. I never trusted Parvati or Nate. I’m sorry. I know I hurt your feelings. I never meant to.”
Becky votes for Candice. “Hmmm… Girl, you know that it’s nothing personal. I love you. If only you hadn’t jumped ship and changed sides.”
Adam votes for Jonathan. “I hope everyone else finally sees your true colors.”
Candice votes for Jonathan. “Jonathan, this vote is for you tonight. You know, when I think about you, I said it tonight, and, uh... Wow. Piece of work.”
Parvati votes for Jonathan. “Clearly, Jonathan. You’re a big meanie and a bully and I think everyone would be better off if you went home tonight.”
Yul votes for Candice. “Candice, I have a ton of respect for you as a competitor. I really wish you had never stepped off that mat, because if you hadn’t, I sincerely believe that we would be working together right now, on our way to the final four. It would have been an honor. But you did step off that mat and set in motion a sequence of events such that tonight I have to vote you off. Wish you the best.”
