Survivor Cagayan "Cops-R-Us" OAD 3-5-2014

I'm really happy the brains tribe didn't lose yet again. Kind of hated to see Bryce go, but would have hated to say goodbye to Morgan a whole lot more.

Tony is a guy I would get tired of quickly IRL. Gotta give him credit, though, he seems to be hustling in the right ways.

Shivering in the rain is the new sitting around starving. Seems like Survivor figured out years ago that starving people are boring. Are there no "tropical paradises" that live up to the name? I don't care if they stay in one place forever, but make it an interesting, pretty, place.

3 episodes in, I'd say this season is off to a solid start.

So how long has that guy actually been a cop? Paraphrasing here, but he said he'd been a cop for 13 years in a large city. Then he said he'd been a cop for seven hears and his wife eight. The only thing I can think is that "when we met" was edited out.

And how about... yeah, I threw the rice out and all, but I'm really hungry and I think we should cook what's left cause we'll be able to get more.

Can you imagine how bad Brains would have been had they not practiced? That was hilarious.

They all look so miserable in that rain. Pruned hands and toenails falling off is a little too much reality for me. Tarps were a really good reward. I hope it's an option for the Beauty team the next time they don't lose a challenge.

Morgan is hypnotic to look at but she is as dumb as she is hot. She is almost as bad as Garret was with saying the exact wrong thing while thinking she's strategic.

I'd like to see brawn lose next week, just to keep the tribes balanced. I'd like to see everyone down to 3 or 4 before the merge.

Sorry to see Brice go. He seemed like he could have been fun to watch. But of the available options, I'm glad they chose Brice over Alexis. I still want to get to know Alexis better even if she doesn't seem to be much of a player.

Jeremiah definitely made the right move. Much better to be part of a strong 4 at this point than being the swing vote to make it 3-3.

Glad Brains was able to come from behind. I didn't want to see them lose another player. Having the other teams have to sit out half their tribes in the next challenge would have sucked. But Brains actually got pretty lucky because even the "puzzle" part of this challenge didn't really require any brains to solve. It wasn't a puzzle. It was more about learning to work the ropes to turn the wheel just the right amount.

I was glad to see Brice go. His exit confessional (or whatever you'd call that thing) was exactly why I can't stand people like that - catty and entitled. Glad he's gone.

Also glad Brains didn't lose again for the reasons stated above.

On his exit from tribal council, Brice reminded me of the gay guy from Revenge of the Nerds.

He said he was a cop for 13 years, Sara responded that she was a cop for 7 years and then he said his wife was a cop for 8 years. He never said he was a cop for 7 years.

I just re-watched it on CBS.com. He asked her how she could tell. She said she just knew and she says "I've been a cop for 7 years". The confusion is probably because it was dark, they were whispering and the conversation was CC'd. You can clearly see she is the one talking though. The convo starts at about 4 minutes.

I think the real reason came out last night on why the Brains didn't vote out the crazy chick last week....The guy says "Rice is replaceable".

They know the producers are going to replace the rice she dumped so there really are no repricussions for her actions.

Why would they think the producers will replace the rice? I don't see that happening before they've suffered considerably.

The only time Jeff has EVER given extra rice to a tribe who was starving was when they had to trade something considerable for it...

And then, only after having them suffer considerably before offering it...

Survivor seems to have gotten softer over the years though... We'll see what happens... I don't see the massive weight loss of the past...and they seem to provide fire pretty quickly to the tribes...

Oh we won't hear about it but I would bet money that rice will be replaced. Survivor is not about starving anymore.

Regarding replacing the rice, Jeff said:

Quote:
The basic philosophy is we do nothing. We want to see them figure it out on their own. There are lots of ideas they could try before we would intervene. But if it got to where they truly had nothing and needed help — we’d give it to them, but it would come at a massive price.

And you shouldn't. He even said so multiple times in his confessionals. He said he doesn't trust Sarah, and she shouldn't trust him. Conversely, it sure seemed like Sarah was all in on trusting him.

When the Brains were doing the challenge, it seemed to me that the guy and the first girl were doing pretty well, and then rice girl would spill some and toss the rest wildly away. I would definitely get rid of her at the next opportunity, and in the meantime, I'd say her share of the rice is over there in the fire pit. She can quit if she's too hungry.

Yeah, I hope that Spencer can talk the two non-crazy girls into keeping him and getting rid of her.

I did love that they did "practice". It didn't seem to help them much but it was an idea that many fans have been throwing around for years. It's just that usually they don't know what the challenge will be.

I'm rooting for Her, but She better wake up or Her torch will be snuffed quickly... Morgan is my fav on the Beauty team although She's probably toast quickly and Spencer with the Brains, Kass is way too gabby...

This. I feel for Sarah. She's definitely all in with him as he's a fellow cop and is likely to get screwed over by him unless she can sniff it out like she sniffed out his occupation.

Yep, I agree. But, I like Tony. He's playing exactly how I would. Trust no one, but try and find common ground and get them to trust you. I am ALWAYS surprised how many people come into this game and put blind trust in someone, and then get really upset when that someone blindsides them.

It does seem like Tony is the only one on the brawn tribe who's watched the show before.

The Brawn team has to get beat in a challenge first. And by the time that happens, attitudes toward him could change significantly.

Or someone else can be the one annoying everyone by the time they get to Tribal Council. My guess is Trish will be the first one to go from Brawn, I think she's likely to get confrontational and talk herself off the show. Lindsey or Tony could also do that but are less likely to - I think Lindsey is less of a hot-head and Tony is smarter than Trish.

Tony does seem like the only Brawn tribe member actively playing, but I think Cliff is also thinking about the game and playing more of a passive game right now. Tony is right to be threatened by Cliff, but should not go too far trying to get him voted out first.

I think there's two good players on each tribe that would make a great merged tribe, IMO:

Tony and Cliff from Brawn. I like Woo better than Tony, but I think Tony is the better player.

Tasha and Spencer from Brains. The rest of this tribe has been a disaster from the start.

LJ and Morgan from Beauty. LJ is the only good player on Beauty IMO, so if I just pick one from the rest, I'll take Morgan. I remember hearing she is good friends with Colton IRL, so I'm waiting for her to reveal herself as a terrible person, but so far, while she hasn't been the smartest player, she hasn't done anything that would make me want her off my TV screen.

It seems like the longer survivor goes on, the earlier they start getting rid of people who are threats (I assume that's Cliff's issue). They used to try to keep tribes strong until the merge, but no more. I think you should have plenty of time to get rid of threats later--very few people can win every challenge for very long. In the meantime it would be nice to win a tribal immunity once in the while.
