After Jefra’s blatant honesty we head into tribal with two options:
1) Spencer plays his idol on himself and a NuSolana member goes home, likely Woo or
2) Spencer plays his idol on Jeremiah and Spencer goes home.
This is game changer territory!
Spencer kicks off by stating he, Tasha and Jeremiah are on the outside, another insightful ‘Brain’ comment.
Jefra tells Jeff that she has gone back to original alliance. Smart move for now and it may even gain her ‘truth’ points with the jury.
Everyone is a threat apparently, Spencer says he will vote for Tony if on jury, Tasha and Jeremiah echo the same sentiment. The problem with thesis they don’t do it with any class, it was threatening, brash and reactionary. (Cast your minds back to Blood vs Water, Hayden calmly caused Sienna to flip because he came across as sincere. Take another trip back to Phillipines; Penner politely and succinctly told Skupin and Lisa they would lose to Malcolm or Denise at FTC (shock horror he was right), they didn’t listen as they are two of the worst Survivors in history, however the approach was perfect) Kudos to Tony who looks noticeably upset over being thrown under the ‘best player’ bus yet he doesn’t snap and keeps his cool.
Spencer keeps throwing grenades at Jefra saying he doesn’t understand how she can’t see that she is last on the totem pole that is NuSolana. Surprisingly he didn’t bring up the numbers game… She could be 4 with them, or 5 with her current alliance. Perhaps she thinks Kass is 5?
Tony defends himself by saying he never broke any promises? Ummmm… Surely he must have to Trish, Kass & Jefra last tribal? Maybe he is getting a bit too technical.
Trish loyally sticks up for him and says he promised to end the crap. Funny how being disloyal one week has earned Tony extra loyalty points this week.
Woo makes an interesting statement that if Tony is to get there he will need their help. This could be an important comment come seasons end.
Can I just say that Spencer is finally showing his true colours… he is a jerk. Can’t recall a bigger whinging player in recent years. No social game whatsoever.
Before the votes are cast it looks like it is boiling down to Woo or Jeremiah? Just depends on where Spencer’s idol falls.
Spencer is a jerk to Woo in his confessional. By impersonating a stoned surfer. Shut up Spencer you tool! Just because you left the clue in your pants stupidly doesn’t excuse your jerkiness.
After the votes are cast Spencer steps up to play his idol… He remarks to Woo “you can steal all the clues you want but I’ve got the real thing”. In a true Cop stand-off T Bone pulls his out to call his bluff (this guy never stops thinking, he is always a step ahead) Spencer says its fake and then plays the idol on himself. You wouldn’t expect anything less of the sook, then again in fairness, you wouldn’t expect anything else of someone in the minority.
Jeff – Where’s the napkin?
Before Jeff opens the vote box Tony tells Jeff how amateur Spencer was by thinking his idol was real (it is!) causing him not to play it on Jeremy… Funnily this name error is more entertaining than anything Jeremiah has done, come to think of it this new Jeremy dude sounds like a barrel of fun compared to Jeremiah. Tony caps off his Oscar performance by referring to his idol as a fake. Brilliant Tony. Brilliant. Next tribal there will be doubt as to whether Tony has one or whether it is fake.
Tony admires his new ‘Butterfly’ super idol! “You will be called… Wing face”
The votes come out. Woo, Woo, Woooooooo……. Jeremiah! hahhahahaha suck it Spencer! You guessed wrong. Outplayed again! Ironically Spencer said in a earlier confessional that Tony was predictable, yet NuSolana predicted that Spencer had an idol and would play it on himself.
So long Wet Mop
The wet mop is booted. And Tasha and Spencer are now firmly entrenched at the bottom.
Tasha – “Why is he still on the island?” Spencer – “I’m not sure” Jeremiah – “You MA MA MA MAKE ME HAPPY!”
Things will no doubt change next week.
