BRICE ICED — The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Cagayan Episode 2

BRICE ICED -- The Unofficial Guide to Survivor: Cagayan Episode 2

Here’s everything you need to know about what happened in Survivor: Cagayan Episode 2 — “Cops-R-Us” – who won the challenges, who was voted of, who played well, and who is on the outs. Feel free to add your notes, thoughts, and questions.

Aired March 5, 2014, covering night 6 through night 8

Immunity/Reward Challenge winner:  Appari (Brawn) (1st) (blankets, pillows, mosquito net, & tarp), Luzon (Brains) (2nd) (tarp only)

Voted Out: Brice - Brice is going to get credit for being strategic and a social threat, but in reality it was nothing more than getting rid of the guy that didn’t fit in. It’s hard to believe that there was any substance with Brice as far as the game goes, but it would have been more fun to find out than to be bored by Alexis any longer.

Player Notes:

Sarah

What’s worse – Sarah for so fully buying into the cop bond, or Tony for being willing to use it to manipulate her? Sarah should definitely know better than to put all of her trust into one person and not try to corroborate Tony’s claims with someone else.

Is Morgan the villain of Survivor: Cagayan? Those faces she was making in Tribal Council were downright evil, and we saw her cleverly crafted lie on day one (even though LJ seems to have seen through it). If she is, she needs to use her self-professed charms on Jeremiah and help him get rid of LJ, because barring an epic self-destruct sequence from anyone else in the tribe she’s likely next to go home.

Morgan, Alexis, & Jefra

Alexis looked like a deer in headlights at Tribal Council. She had no rebuttal for Brice’s assertion that she did nothing at camp, and she is certainly no strategist. If Jeremiah cared anything about ratings he would have kept his word with Brice and voted Alexis.

Jefra doesn’t seem like she’s got the foggiest idea of what’s going on, either. Considering also her inability to cope with the wet weather, it’s hard to see her making any kind of mark on this game.

Jeremiah

Did Jeremiah improve his position in the tribe and move a step closer toward controlling the tribe like he wanted by backstabbing Brice? Probably. Being tight with LJ can’t hurt, Morgan basically has no one, and Alexis and Jefra have no idea what’s going on. Aligning with Morgan and making a move on LJ is the next logical move for him if he wants to cement his leadership in the tribe, but it’s hard to see him having the guts to do so.

LJ‘s discovery of the Hidden Immunity Idol was impressive. Jeremiah seems to have fallen in line, Morgan is all alone,  and Alexis/Jefra have no brain of their own, so LJ is sitting real pretty in this tribe of pretty faces.

Tasha is lucky that J’Tia is a borderline psycho and Spencer has no friends, because her annoying judgmentalism and hideous performance in the Immunity Challenge should have painted a gigantic target on her back. She talks and offers this level-headed insight then turns around and rolls her eyes at her tribe mates behind their backs and bombs in the challenge she directed practice on. Her attitude perfectly represents what is wrong with this tribe, to the point that it’s completely fair to blame her for their position as much as J’Tia or Garrett.
