Survivor Guatemala Update

Continuing off last week's episode, Judd can't stop talking and getting on people's nerves.

The reward challenge is rather interesting. The teams wrap themselves in straps, starting out with one person, then two people, then three and four. Once they are completely wrapped, they can reverse the process, unwrapping themselves one by one. Nukum has the lead at the halfway point, but they get tangled and eventually fall down. Yaxha stays calm and wins reward.

Which turns out to be a pretty good one. They get to glide down a wire atop the jungle. Looks like a terrific view. At the bottom is a chocolate feast, which would not exactly thrill me personally, but it's obviously a delight to the women.

Afterwards comes something of a surprise. The Yaxha tribe paddles across the lake and invites the Nukum members to a pool party. At first it seems unanimous that the Nukum members will not go, but when the mention of leftover chocolate comes up, the Nukum tribe hops into their own outrigger.

Jamie gets some of his first notice in this episode, but it's because he keeps quiet during the pool party to see what's going on with the other tribe. Foreshadowing by Burnett?

The Immunity Challenge is to dig pieces of a puzzle out of a pile of sand, then assemble the puzzle. Of course, I was yelling "Don't let Bobby Jon put the puzzle together!" and for once, they seem to have heard me. Unfortunately that was not enough to help them win, as Brandon spent a long time looking for the 11th (of 12) pieces and they never seemed to catch up after that.

The next segment is the usual misdirection. Of course Amy's going home, but they give us a hint that maybe it's Bobby Jon because he doesn't deserve it; he's had his chance. And in the end the person we thought was going home did.

One thing I am definitely getting tired of is the constant repetition by Probst. Every time there's a reward challenge, he has to ask the contestants, "Wanna know what you're playing for?" Couldn't they vary that just a teeny bit? When the teams come in for the reward, he says, "Nukum, getting their first look at the new Yaxha. Amy voted out at the last tribal council." And to whichever tribe loses the reward challenge, "I got nothing for you, head on back to camp." What's the story, Burnett? Can't you hire a few writers to liven Jeff's material up a bit?

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
