Dalton brings up the family visit, and segues to a clip of the reward challenge, “Pass the Bucket”. Jenna likes the family visits because it reminds her of when her dad came to see her on Survivor Amazon. I note Jeff Probst felt the need to give away the strategy of wringing out your shirt to family members too clueless to figure it out for themselves. Jeff, play fair. It didn’t matter this time, I say but let the players play the games and do their own thinking.
Jonathan tells Dalton that he was sure he was the one going to Exile Island if Parvati or Adam won, and whoever went at that point was probably going home. Jonathan thinks if someone else had won, Adam or Parvati would have been the one banished. Jenna likes it that they got to hug, which wasn’t allowed in her season.
Heather in Montreal had her question stolen, so she asks if the way he remembers interacting with the others is the same as how we see it on TV. Jonathan says Becky and Sundra are more active in the game that what we see. He confirms for Jenna that no one is riding coattails at his point. He says on Raro, he saw people who were not pulling their weight.
Joel from New York is irked that Parvati, Adam, and Candice are so self-righteous and morally superior about their game. Parvati is a flirt, Adam too, and Candice was first to mutiny and only hangs out with her clique.
Jonathan takes the high road. He says it’s self-righteous of him to evaluate their game, because anything you do to get to the next day in the game is fair. He says he would not revert to the name-calling that they did, but after all, they are still in the game.
Jenna is dying to get a word in, and can’t. Dalton wonders how much of what they say is planned and how much is anger and nastiness. I’m seeing anger, primarily. Jonathan says, “They didn’t see him as a good guy, because I’m not playing the game the same way.”
Jenna finally gets the floor. She says, “I did what they did. It’s like, we can do it to you, but when you do it to us, we’re pissed. I was the same.” I’m glad to see she’s gained the maturity to see how hypocritical that is.
Jonathan says it hurts them more because they thought they were in the driver’s seat, were lording it over him, and then the tables turned. He repeats, “They were playing a very emotional game, and not a particularly strategic one.”
It’s time for Jenna Morasca’s “Question of the Week.” “What are you going to do now?” Jonathan says he doesn’t act much anymore; he’s more of a writer/producer now. He and his wife have a few potential deals out there now (not with CBS), but nothing firm he can report on.
The final piece of business is the running of the CBS promo. Parvati and Adam plan; Ozzy is playing to win; Becky and Yul consider turning on Ozzy.
Jenna talks about the final three (as versus, final two). She says, “I would be LIVID about!” Dalton sees his pre-season pick of Yul is still looking good. Because the promos indicate Ozzy is in trouble, he thinks that’s a false lead. Jenna thinks a female will be in the final two. She fears the million will be decided by fire-making.
Dalton predicts Yul-Ozzy-Becky in the final three. Jenna wants to make a different pick, but cannot.
Although Yul made an incredibly poor decision to boot Jonathan one episode too soon, I still feel he’s still the most obvious, early-definable winner since Brian in Survivor: Thailand. But I could be wrong, it happens often enough…
And that’s all the time there is. Having never used the word “aggressive” this week, Jenna mini-dances us out and we are done.
CBS Website Clues:
The first one is obviously Parvati and Adam, and we saw in the promo that the third one is Becky and Yul discussing Ozzy. The second one promises some slopping about in the mud.
The fourth one, I’ll let you guys tell me your opinions – I’ll share my own uneducated guess with anyone who sends in a reasoned interpretation of that clue.
Brian lives in Toronto where he can be reached at Uncle_bto@rogers.com. He’d like to hear your opinions and promises to respond to all serious email!
