First, my trivia question. This week, the Aitu tribe got to sit in on Raro’s Tribal Council. Of course, this has happened before. This week’s trivia question is this: Who was the first ever to be allowed to sit in at another tribe’s Tribal Council?
Proceedings start off for real as Dalton reiterates that he hates when the winners of a challenge also have to vote off a tribe member. This season, Cao Boi was the unfortunate victim of that twist.
Oh heck, two bootees, let’s have a second question. The first time we saw this dopey twist (with the challenge-winning team also sending somebody out of the game), who was the unfortunate victim? As usual, the answers will be near the bottom of this article.
Cao Boi says he was only bummed for about five seconds after being booted out, explaining, “After that, let it go. Deal with it, then let it go. The next moment is a different moment.” He wanted to participate in the last challenge but with three other strong younger men on the team, he was outvoted by the others.
Dalton compares “Plan Voodoo” to Big Brother 5’s Nakomis’ “Six Fingered Plan.” Both hosts like the plan. Jenna likes the idea that it would either force the hidden idol to be played, or show where it is. Either way, everyone would be back on a level playing field.
Cao Boi says he asked Yul if he had the Idol, and he said “No.” Both hosts are surprised Yul pulled off the lie.
Dalton gives credit to Cristina for putting up a good fight in the challenge. It is appropriately called “Kicking and Screaming,” by the way. All agree that it got a bit dirty out there. Cristina says that afterward, Yul (from the other team) gave her water. However, her whole tribe didn’t even talk to her, not even saying “nice job” as she lay there, exhausted and choking. Cao Boi confirms that they just left her sitting there.
Jenna assumes Adam (an alpha male, one notes) is the one directing the anti-Cristina “Haterade.” Cristina says Adam and Jenny are the ones manipulating the tribe.
Today’s first caller is Sho, from New York. He asks what they learned from the game. Cao Boi says it’s not to naively trust people who haven’t proven they deserve it. Cristina pretty much agrees.
Dalton asks Cristina who she trusted that then betrayed her. After initially waffling she says, “Jenny said one thing and then did another.” She didn’t get along with Ozzy initially, but they got past it. She was never sure if J.P. and Cecilia were on her side or not. Later on, she got to know J.P. better and now realizes he is a great guy.
Dalton mentions that Jenny drew a shooting gun on the voting card as she voted out Cristina. Classy. Not. Cristina wasn’t sure if it was Parvati or Jenny who had done it until she saw the show. Asked her reaction, she says, “It was hurtful, it was disrespectful.”
Jenna points out that it is a bad move, in case Cristina comes back into the game. Well, since Cristina didn’t know for sure who did it, maybe not.
Cao Boi asks if they knew she was shot on the job and she says that she told them. She cannot be absolutely positive Jenny was there at the time, but she thinks so. More on this topic later.
The clip where Cao Boi outlines “Plan Voodoo” is run. Dalton likes that the plan because both the hidden idol holder and the original White tribe need to be attacked; both their positions in the game are too strong. With Candice sending unsubtle messages to Adam to Tribal Council, it’s apparent that bond is still strong. Cao Boi jokes that Candice probably DID send a come-on to Billy, too!
Andrew from L.A. asks Cao Boi if he told the rest of Aitu that they stumbled into Raro’s camp. They did, and they told the whole story truthfully. It took over an hour to row there and even more to come back, because of the wind and currents. Candice raised the idea of going back to raid the other island at night. However, when Cao Boi told her she’d be rowing this time, that was the end of that!
Cristina feels her tribe was inhospitable and rude to the visitors, however they did give them some tape off of their paddle. Cristina knew you might need these people as allies down the road. Jenna admits she wouldn’t be giving up anything that was edible, like the spices or cocoanuts.
Don from Toronto wants to know how they think they’d have done if, when the tribes were redrafted, they ended up on the other side. Cristina says she would have tried for an alliance with Yul and Becky. She’s not too sure that Jonathan, Ozzy, or Candice were trustworthy. She expects she would have gotten along with Flica and Cao Boi as well.
Cao Boi doesn’t answer but reminds us that every tribe had an “oddball” member. Jenna says that Flica referred to them as “alternative.” Dalton jokes that in Cao Boi’s case, “he’s an oddball.”
Cao Boi confirms that Jonathan also got the “bad wind” treatment. Dalton reminds us Jenna said she would get the treatment on the show. She says, “Maybe later.” Cao Boi says the red mark fades in five minutes if you aren’t actually sick with bad wind. Cristina relates that after her treatment she kept picking at the mark and now she has a permanent scar… but, the pain did go away!1 2 3 4 Next-->
