Dalton asks Parvati about being portrayed as “the bad guys” of the season. Parvati says this was strange for her, because they had been losing and she thought they were the underdogs. It’s her opinion that Candice wanted to be with her and Adam and have more fun. That isn’t what Candice told us last week, but I guess the topic of game strategies never came up at Loser Lodge?
Discussing the mutiny, Parvati wishes everyone had stepped off the mat and effectively made a merge, or else waited for the real merge that had to be just a few days out. She figures it fueled Aitu’s fire and made them tougher in the challenges.
Parvati isn’t sure why the Raro tribe was so reviled. The hosts explain it to her as people always root for the underdog and Raro had such an overwhelming numerical advantage. Jenna adds the additional factor, having Jonathan on your team.
Paul in New York has multiple questions. He wants to know why they passed up three chances to eliminate Jonathan. That one doesn’t get addressed. He also wonders who would she most like to have kept, and how would that have affected the game?
Parvati quickly says she’d have kept Jenny, because she feels Jenny would have stayed loyal to Raro. She’s sure Jenny would have stayed loyal and that would have changed the whole game. She calls Jenny “My little partner,” and, “very mischievous, very cute.”
The next discussion concerns the vote that followed the opening of the glass bottle at Tribal Council, which led to Jenny being voted out. Noting that Jonathan got the second most votes in the first round (after Rebecca) Jenna wonders why Jenny’s name came up next. She asks if they had a signal to cue the second vote. No. Parvati reiterates what she said before about their day one alliance and that she placed Jonathan above Jenny in the pecking order.
Parvati says she is a trusting person and that was her weakness. She says, “Jonathan is very manipulative, but in a way that doesn’t make you feel like you’re being manipulated.” Jenna says that his stealing chickens in episode one, “was a little bit of a sign.”
Madeline from Malibu is confused by Parvati. She says Parvati is much-maligned on the message boards and was portrayed on the show as “very lazy, and bitter, and somewhat of a sleazy contestant.” Parvati grimaces. Madeline asks, “Do you think you received a fair edit, or is that exactly how you are?” “Ouch!” replies Parvati.
She says her edit as a lazy person was “unmerited.” She tells us only Jonathan called them lazy. She says before he came to Raro, she was “the hunter,” getting crabs and shellfish. Adam, too, and in fact everyone, pitched in. She says that when they are edited as lazy, they are easier for the public to dislike.
Dalton points out that the Aitu four withheld food from them, so it wasn’t only Jonathan who thought they were lazy. Parvati thinks Jonathan was the ringleader of that event. Parvati says Jonathan and Ozzy were providing food, but not Yul or the others. Parvati says Jonathan was playing up to the Aitu foursome, so he wouldn’t have criticized their work levels. I think I’m mostly with Dalton here.
Parvati says most decisions were made as a group among the Aitu four, so it would be harder for the jury to single any one person out as wholly responsible.
Another clip is run, and it’s muddy people on a plane flight, and then in a hot tub. Dalton notes that when the great Cook Islands humpback whale reared its ugly head, Yul couldn’t get away fast enough. He notes Yul wasn’t drinking. Jenna likes that hot tub banter, and when Parvati says she would vomit on Jonathan.
Parvati doesn’t understand why her flirting was portrayed as such a negative. Dalton says if the guys are dumb enough to fall for it, why not use that tactic? Jenna adds, “And, it works.”
Christie from New York had her question stolen, so she asks about Parvati being perceived as a bigger threat than Adam. Parvati says, “I was kind of flattered by that, being a stronger threat than Adam, but I think they were right.”
Dalton says Jeff Probst is a stronger threat than Adam at this point. Parvati points out that Adam did win the recent math challenge. Jenna says she doesn’t think Adam has a prayer, and Dalton heartily agrees.
Bob from Bama is Parvati’s uncle. Jenna gives him a “Blast” game. He asks about her dad coming out in the family visit. She says that after chopping her finger, she was at her lowest point and seeing him made her an emotional wreck. She confesses to being “a daddy’s girl.” She admits she was freaking out when it fell to dad to pick those who would share her reward, fearing that Adam might not be chosen.
Parvati shares that although it wasn’t shown, the family members spent the night with them as well. Her dad loved it.
Dalton shifts focus to the “Probst’s Thoughts” feature, where a message is played that Jeff Probst previously recorded about the departing player. He starts by saying that he remembers Parvati promised to use her sexuality to get further on the show. He is aware that he didn’t pronounce her name properly, but insists he was trying hard to get it right. He says, “Parvati was underestimated from the intelligence side.” Jenna blames Jeff for her own mispronunciation of Parvati’s name at the beginning of the season.
Parvati likes Jeff. She says no one gets away with anything where Jeff is involved.
Mark in New York sucks up to Jenna and wins a game as well. He asks if they considered voting for Yul to force the hidden idol to be played. Parvati says they worked that angle, especially with Sundra, but had no success.
Jenna says it looks like Sundra is doing the least amount of strategizing in the four, and asks Parvati if that’s true. Parvati says, “Sundra was part of the Yul-Becky alliance, so she felt comfortable. She didn’t have to make decisions. She flew way under the radar.”
Dalton says she was on her way out on original Aitu but stayed out of the spotlight and let others get themselves booted out first. Now, however, there may be some coattail-riding going on.
The final segment begins with the hosts laughing about something Jenna said during the break. Dalton says, “Jenna has water in her eye, and it’s making her cry. Things that come out of her mouth are making me cry.”<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
