The second segment begins with Dalton asking Flica if she ever got to the point where she didn’t want to still be in the game. No. She says she doesn’t usually let people get to her that seriously. She still felt she was an asset to her tribe, wasn’t threatening, and enjoyed being out there.
Dalton says that pre-game, Flica said she was going to bring some “Roller Derby vibe” to Survivor and runs the clip of her talking some smack in the one challenge. Asked if she was serious, she says, “I was just being silly,” and, “Would you take something like that seriously? Come on now!”
Terry says he thought she would hold on longer. She admits that when she let her arm extend, she was done. Terry says that in a lot of the challenges, if you can find the right technique quickly, it makes it a lot easier.
Flica claims Parvati made an apparently invalid move, pulling the rope down using her entire body weight and not just her arm. Perhaps she should have been issued an “SPW” (“Stiff Probst Warning”), which seems to be the only penalty one gets for breaking the rules in a challenge this season.
Dalton says, if you’d had an arm free, you could have thrown the red challenge flag. Flica responds, “If I could get an elbow free, I’d have thrown her a roller derby elbow!”
The phone lines are messed up so a clip of the immunity challenge clip is run. The challenge was appropriately titled, “Stairway to Heaven”. While were at it, the similar reward challenge was called “Smash and Grab.” I’m not sure why people felt all that excessive motion would make them traverse a zip-line faster and Probst sure gave Parvati a hard time about walking instead of swimming, but at any rate this clip shows Raro’s dramatic come-from-behind victory.
Dalton asks what happened with the puzzle. Flica thought the other gals lost the challenge on purpose. She claims she was handing them the right pieces and Sundra and Becky kept handing them back to her. Back at camp, she confronted them and the girls said, “Really?” and claimed they were not aware that had happened.
The hosts are not sure, though Dalton wonders if Ozzy got to them. I suggest that if she wants to seek conspiracies, consider Jonathan so readily volunteering to sit out the challenge.
Dalton notes that on the other side, Brad caught a lot of flack from Nate for sitting out swimming stage in the reward challenge, yet Adam sat out swimming in the immunity challenge and that was not seen as an issue. It could be that Brad, Nate and Parvati are all superior swimmers to Adam, who was pressed into service when Nate was unavailable. Terry notes that Adam wasn’t doing much in the way of puzzle-solving either, but Jenny seemed to have an epiphany and he wasn’t needed.
Phone problems have been fixed and we finally hear from Don in Toronto. He calls Flica “honestly, a decent person, a really sweet person.” Don asks if she knew she was the one going home, because she didn’t seem upset at going.
Flica relates that she couldn’t get an honest answer from anyone when she tried to talk about the vote beforehand. She adds that even the ones she saw as her friends didn’t tell her, and she would have wanted to know. Dalton points out that you can’t spill the beans in this game or else things will flip around on you. When she did get an answer, it was Jonathan’s name that came up.
Chris from New Jersey is the next caller. He asks why Nate was chosen to be the one kidnapped in the previous Tribal Council. She says they knew he was strong in their tribe, and well liked. Conversely, she describes Adam as not as well liked and aggressive.
Terry suggests that maybe they saw that the women were going to vote off a guy and by removing Nate, this would force them to make a quick decision. This makes minimal sense to me, but Flica agrees in a manner so unconvincing that you know that either the idea is completely foreign to her, or she just didn’t understand it. So forget that one.
Dalton suggests perhaps it was to keep Nate out of the next reward challenge. I’m pretty sure she is again agreeing to a false reason. She then reveals that Candice and Jonathan wanted to pick Adam, but she didn’t want them to reconnect.
Okay, THAT one I buy. But the real answer is, she wasn’t part of the strategic plan behind the choice of Nate, and we must wait for another Aitu to appear on this show before we get the real story.
Flica did not compete in the reward challenge and she admits to rooting for hard-working Adam, and also Rebecca with her top off and too tired to fix it. Actually, she can’t even remember Rebecca’s name and Dalton has to provide it! Terry notes that Parvati swam very well in that challenge. Flica wants to box against her.
Eric from Atlanta compares Flica to Jennifer Tilly and Cyndi Lauper. He asks what she’s doing now. Well, go to Flicaflame.com for the details! She still fire dances on stilts and designs costumes. She also wants to set up challenges, video tape them and post them at YouTube. She’s been taking boxing lessons to get ready to challenge Parvati.
The nickname of Flica comes from rhyming with the Bic lighter; apparently she used to use a Bic to light up her equipment back in 2000, and it stuck with her.
Dalton next introduces “Probst’s Thoughts,” where Jeff Probst records a message to the departing player. Jeff calls her, “One of the most colorful and likable people on the show this season. She was frustrating to some because she wasn’t as into the game as others were.” She approached it as an adventure, and wouldn’t be bullied into voting. He adds that she is most likely to be remembered for losing the chickens and ends with, “Jessica, you were a delight.” He hopes she’ll be on a future edition of the show. Hmm! All-Stars #2?
She clarifies that there were, in fact, three chickens initially, and it was Candice who let the first one out. That wasn’t caught on camera, though. She also tells us no one ever caught a chicken on that island, but there were about a dozen hanging around and interrupting their sleep. However, on her (second) island, they caught all but one of the wild chickens.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
