Dalton introduces a “Probst’s Thoughts” segment, where series host Jeff Probst records a message to the departing player. This message is for Cao Boi. Jeff says, “If we could have a guy like you on every season, I promise you, we would.” Jeff goes on to say he likes his sense of humor, even his pushing the envelope by making ethnic jokes within his Asian tribe and insisting it was appropriate. Perhaps everyone didn’t agree, but Cao Boi stood his ground. Jeff ends by saying, “You brought a lot of entertainment to the show with you funky ways and it was very fun to have you on.”
Expressing his thoughts on the initial ethnic tribal split, Cao Boi wonders how five people could represent the millions of Asians. He insists you can only represent yourself. Jenna comments that some stereotypes came out (like Africa-Americans not doing well in the water), but most of the jokes were made within their own original tribes.
Cristina doesn’t necessarily agree with all Cao Boi is saying. I’m not clear if she’s addressing him in particular or talking about folks in general, but she cautions that one needs to be careful what they say and consider how it may be interpreted. I get the feeling Cao Boi gets and ignores that particular bit of advice at least one a week!
Segment two begins with a call from Mike in Boston, who asks if they all saw Candice blowing kisses to Adam at Tribal council. Cristina says she was a little more concerned about getting voted off. Jenna suspects watching people eat held little attraction for her, either. Cao Boi reminds us he is a vegetarian, so he didn’t miss the feast.
Jenna’s dad told her that as a show of solidarity, Nate should have announced he was not going to partake in the feast. Cao Boi likes the idea because it shows loyalty to your tribe. Jenna says she wouldn’t miss out on a feast. Dalton says it’s a delicate balance; you don’t want to offend future possible merge-mates on Aitu.
Jim in Texas asks Cao Boi about the Aitu tribe’s distrust of Jonathan. He says Jonathan’s eyes roll when he talks and he constantly goes back and forth to people, so you know he’s working them. He’s aggressive and makes people feel uncomfortable. The hosts like that Jonathan’s playing hard but say it has to be done in a more subtle way.
Still pictures of both Ethan and Ozzy are shown. The resemblance, to my eye, is very slight. When prompted by Dalton, Jenna says Ethan is the cuter one. Just. Shoot. Me.
Dalton says he’s waited long enough, he wants to see the challenge clip run, complete with choking. Post clip, Dalton says the only thing missing was handcuffs. He asks what rules the players were given. Cristina replies, “No choking, pressure points, no control holds, no kicking.” No hair pulling, either, I guess. I think every one of those rules was violated, but rule enforcement was non-existent.
They all agree that Candice set the tone with her high level of resistance in the first leg. I can testify that Parvati and Rebecca had nothing left when it was time to pry Sundra away from her perch!
Dalton asks Cristina about the decision to send Candice to Exile Island several episodes ago. Cristina didn’t think it mattered, and Adam was very vocal about it. She now realizes the other white tribe members may indeed have been trying to protect Candice.
Brett from North Carolina wonders if their opinions of their tribe mates changed after watching the show. Cristina initially thought everyone was nice, but then found them “very rude, conniving, and very disrespectful. It wasn’t a game any more, it was more of a personal thing with me, and about me being a cop. It got out of hand and I had to say something around the campfire. I knew it was a risk but I had to say what I had to say.”
Cao Boi says, “I have no hard feelings. You gotta take people the way they are and accept them the way they are. If you don’t like them, then keep them out of your life. Surround yourself with as many good people as you can.” Dalton comments on Cao Boi’s “inner calm” that he (Dalton) noticed back in the pre-show interviews.
Jenna says his tribe may have been too young to truly understand him. Cao Boi says that as Asians growing up in America, they all have issues from suppressing their true feelings because it’s how they were brought up.
Dalton asks Cristina about throwing a challenge, noting the “karma chameleon” is still in effect (except for self-evicting Stephannie, a Latino has gone every week). She says initially, she was not in agreement with the decision but really couldn’t do much about it.
Some new information comes out next. Cristina voted Billy off because, although it was not shown, he was sick (up-chucking and dehydrated), and not drinking the water. “He was not going to be able to help us later on,” she says.
Rich from Long Island is a retired New York police officer and knows former winner Tom Westman. He thinks Jenny has transformed from a background character to the series villain. He is outraged at Jenny’s classless voting card. In fact, he’s pretty pissed about doing that to a cop and hopes Cristina gets back at Jenny at the Reunion Show. When he calls Jenny the “lowest of the low,” Dalton mercifully cuts him off before he says something too wrong… or too slanderous.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
