The next feature is Dalton’s “minus 10,” where he reads ten rapid-fire categories for the guest to comment on, each in ten words or less. Here’s how it went:
Dalton asks about Adam stroking her leg while he was kissing Candice. She says, “He was a flirty guy who was throwing it right back at me.”
The next caller is David from North Carolina. He asks if she ever tried to form a girl’s alliance. They did form one for one vote (to oust J.P.) but felt they weren’t strong enough to survive as a group of girls.
Dalton reminds her that in two previous seasons, (Amazon and Vanuatu) there were all-female tribes. I can add that we also saw gender-based tribes to open the Survivor: Exile Island season, albeit far too briefly. Parvati says they had “a lot of little girls” and many of the challenges were strength-oriented.
Matt from Maryland wins a “Blast” for sucking up to Jenna. Dalton vetoes it, but then he gets it back for also sucking up to Parvati. He wants to know, if she could eliminate one of the remaining players, who would it be? Parvati says she respects all who are left, but would pick Sundra because she is the least competitive and not pulling her weight, strategy-wise or in competitions.
Dalton runs the clip of “Hat-gate.” The hosts don’t understand why Yul added the last part of his explanation; saying that part of the reason he did it was to win Jonathan’s vote.
Dalton asks if Yul deserves the grief he’s getting, being called the puppetmaster. Parvati says he tries to play it down that he’s pulling the strings.
Jenna says Yul says too much. Her advice is, “Just play the game, don’t try to explain it.” She thinks he’s setting himself up for a tough final Tribal Council by insisting he’s playing with integrity.
She adds, “He’s trying to be so honest, it’s almost getting ridiculous.” Dalton adds, “It’s not a lie if you don’t say it.” Parvati says Yul wanted it to be known that he was playing with integrity and honesty.
Brendan from Boston flirts with the women as well, but I think Jenna is out of games. He asks if Becky was as invisible in camp as she appears to be on TV. Parvati says, “Becky doesn’t get enough credit.” Becky was very supportive when Parvati cut her finger, and also, is definitely a big part of the strategy decisions with Yul. She calls Yul “the face of their alliance.”
Introduced by a longer fanfare than usual, it’s time for Jenna Morasca’s “Question of the Week,” “What are you going to do now?” Parvati would like to host an adventure-travel show. Currently she is training for a half-iron-man. She also does volunteer work for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
The final piece of business is the running of the CBS promo. The finalists are identified as Yul, the brain; Ozzy the dominator; Becky, the crafty one; Adam, the outsider; and Sundra, the heart. There will be three Tribal Councils. Adam says, “I would like to get the idol out of Yul’s hand” and we are promised, “The biggest surprise yet.”
The surprise is, of course, that there is a final three, not two. It’s noted that Jeff gave a hint of that to the Survivors by mentioning the number of days left in the game. Dalton is pretty sure they didn’t pick up on it, though.
Dalton asks Jenna who she wants to win, and who she thinks will win. She names Ozzy, because she thinks Yul is overplaying himself and the jury will pick on Yul over honesty issues, and she thinks he’ll stumble.
Dalton chooses Yul, because he is the one who shaped and controlled the game. Jenna reminds him that this jury may lean towards the emotional side. Dalton remembers that although Tom Westman won, an equally-deserving Boston Rob did not.
Asked to name his final three, Dalton selects Yul and Becky, and adds Ozzy if he wins the final challenge, otherwise, Sundra.
Parvati is excited about the upcoming Reunion show, and the following party. Jenna is sure Jeff Probst will ask some good questions. “Oh, it will be dramatic,” promises Parvati.
And that’s all the time there is. Jenna dances us out, and mercifully, we are done. Ouch, that was painful. I felt sorry for Dalton today.
