An "Insider" Look at Survivor: Cook Islands, Episode 3: You're Breakin' My HeartPage 2
View Printable version of this article
She doesn’t want to look like a manipulator… yet. Too late. They sent Candice because she would be safe, and she looked like the weakest link because she’s so scrawny. Kettle, meet pot. She says some of the women there are muscular. She’s glad they saved her. But she’s worried about her on Exile Island. She’s not sure if she can survive. But she’ll be fine, she’s a nature girl, she can build a fire. Condescend much?
Is there anyone left on this show I don’t hate?
Candice on Exile Island: Well, Candice is really hot, so we’ll see. She’s a little tired and thirsty. No one ever wants to be on Exile Island, but she’d rather be there than at Tribal Council. She’s really glad they sent her. She thinks her friends there were looking out for her. Yikes.
Her tribe is a lot younger, and she’s the youngest person. She was feeling a little out of the loop on her old tribe, so she’s glad they saved her. She’s not sure if she trusts her new tribe.
It feels really good to know that she still has friends there. She misses her best friends in the game, Parvati and Adam. Whoops. She felt like an outsider in her new tribe, she can’t wait to get back to her friends.
Her strategy is to keep her mouth shut and pull her weight, not to be an obvious threat. It’s easier when there are nine people, since other people tend to jump on jobs. She’ll lay low until she finds out who she can trust (the answer is, of course, NO ONE). Hopefully when she comes back they’ll still have the five on her side, and either Cecilia or Ozzy will go.
The worst thing that could happen is if Becky were voted out. If Jonathan were voted out, she and Jonathan supposedly have an alliance, but in her gut she doesn’t trust him. Becky is in control, doing most of the talking for the group. She connected with Yul, and Candice and Becky were drawn together. Becky is probably most solid for Candice, because Becky knows they’re together.
Becky Interview: Her first thought after the merge was to try to figure out who she could trust. She knew that Ozzy and Cecilia would be tight, and her first instinct was to trust Yul and Cao Boi. Then she was talking with Candice and found out that she was close to Jon. With her being close to Yul, they knew they had a solid four.
The other tribe does have a lot of brawn. They tried to compare the other tribe’s members to their tribe. They thought they could match up well.
They wanted to break up Ozzy and Cecilia, as they had a tight bond, and as a numbers thing. They wanted to cut down the Latino tribe’s numbers for the merge. Her alliance is looking at Cecilia, because she’s the leader and Ozzy is good at catching fish. Ozzy is pretty athletic and decisive, she likes that about him.
She hopes, obviously, that she doesn’t go home, but it’ll be interesting to see how many vote for Cecilia. She wonders if her name comes up, will Yul step up and save her? She questions using the idol this early in the game. She doesn’t give up, she’s going to fight as long as she can.
Tribal Council Votes: Did they do the right thing? Eh, who cares! An annoying person is gone, so huzzah.
Yul votes for Cecilia: “I’m really sorry to be sending you home. You seem like a wonderful person, I just haven’t gotten the chance to know you very well in the last 24 hours. The vote was either going to you or Becky, and between the two of you, my loyalty is to Becky because I’ve known her for longer and obviously we have a strong friendship and alliance.”
Cecilia votes for Becky: “Nothing personal, I think you’re amazing, and mumble.” After last week, I’m not bothering.
Sundra votes for Becky: “I’m only writing your name down because I know you’re not going home tonight.” Okay?
Becky votes for Cecilia: “Nothing personal, I’m just doing this as far as strategy to move forward in this game.”
Ozzy votes for Becky, after a long pause and resignation: “You haven’t made any effort to try to connect with me or get to know me.”
Cao Boi votes for Cecilia: “I’m sorry, but there’s a bigger picture, and we’re all in danger from the schemer. You’re the first sacrifice. Hopefully from here on, we can defeat the schemer and the good people may have a chance to play this game longer.”
Jonathan votes for Cecilia: “You’re a very classy lady, this is nothing personal. It’s just strategy.”
Jessica poutingly votes for Cecilia, and whispers how she’s sorry she has to vote for her like she’s exchanging spy codes or something.
And that seems like an appropriate way to end my tenure on the Survivor Insider. End, you say? That’s right, starting next episode Teeuwynn Woodruff has graciously agreed to step in for me. This article just takes too much time, and I don’t have any time to spare, as it was taking away from my editing duties as well as my home life. Thanks to everyone who read and enjoyed them over the years, and feel free to email your twist ideas. If I get enough of them, I’ll put them in a column.
As a great man once said: Excelsior!
