What Happened:

  • Jay makes coffee – Tarzan asks for some but Jay tells him, “You didn’t win this.” Tarzan discovers some of the guys have joined in alliance with the women. He approaches Michael to have guys stick together and bring aboard Alicia. Michael tells him he is in, but in confessional says he doesn’t trust any of the remaining guys. Michael later talks about plan to Jonas, who has no idea about the plan.
  • Randomly selected split tribes compete for reward: Alicia, Jay, Sabrina, Chelsea, Christina, & Troyzan compete against Leif, Kat, Michael, Kim, Jonas, & Tarzan. Leif gets stuck in sand and causes his team to fall behind early but Michael makes it up.

  • Jonas an early candidate to be voted out even though he cooks and is well liked. Troyzan does not agree and lets Jonas know of the plan
  • Chelsea cleans clothes in water then boils them and Tarzan throws his dirty underwear in her pot, angering her. She then asks alliance to target Tarzan over Jonas. Jay wants to stick to the plan.
  • Jonas calls out Michael during Tribal Council as a bigger threat and tells his alliance then to do the same. Tarzan says he doesn’t respect what Jonas did and Jonas reveals Tarzan’s plan to vote out Kat. Tarzan says he’s lying and openly states that he will be voting for Jonas.

  • Given the lack of strong personalities in this game, I really wish we’d see more of the gamesmanship, particularly between Kim and Chelsea, a la JT & Stephen.
