Immunity Challenge winner: Woo
Voted Out: Sarah – Wow! This was one of the most unpredictable and exciting Tribal Council votes we’ve ever seen in this game. Sarah’s inability to get along with Kass and get over her constant hurt feelings was her downfall. This is a game of egos, but it’s hard to recall a time in this game when two people who have the same interests and ultimately the same goal couldn’t get it accomplished because they couldn’t et over themselves and coexist long enough to do what they needed to do. Sarah’s ego was over-inflated by her position as the deciding vote between two alliances, and when Kass didn’t kowtow to her and she couldn’t just let it go it blew up in her face. It’s like Kass and Sarah were having a race to see who could fall apart mentally first.
But it was Kass whose ego was the most over the top ridiculous. She wanted the same thing as Sarah, and if she could’ve just played along and let Sarah think she was the queen that she thought she was she could’ve removed the enemy and been rid of Sarah in a few days anyway. Nobody in that game thought that Kass’s position as the leader of their alliance was usurped by Sarah because she wasn’t the leader of their alliance. And was Kass so stupid as to think that Sarah had replaced her in her alliance with Spencer and Tasha? Because that was the alliance that really mattered; that was the alliance in charge of the larger alliance in charge of the game. She had complete control of the game and probably threw it away all because she thought someone had become bigger than her. How can Kass have faith that everything will work out because there’s still a lot of game to play when she has done literally nothing of strategic value up to this point, she has completely alienated her alliance, and now sits at the very bottom of her new alliance?
Forget Chaos Kass and her deluded belief that she holds any kind of sway in this game right now. Tony is the only person with any semblance of control or power. Look at LJ, Spencer, Jeremiah – they are all looking over their shoulder and playing scared while Tony is doing anything he has to do to get ahead of them. And it’s working; he’s completely in charge and having a blast.
Trish is also playing with her brain and proved that Sarah had no idea what was going on in the game. As Sarah was dismissing Trish for having no strategy, Trish was watching the riff between Sarah and Kass grow and formulated a plan for getting Kass to jump – something completely unthinkable three days earlier.
Jefra‘s display at Tribal Council was sad and showed that she neither has nor deserves any kind of significant status in this game. Thanking someone for not voting you out is completely pathetic and makes you subservient to them. The right move is to cut their legs out from under them the first chance you get for even making you question their loyalty in the first place. Move aside, Jefra, and make way for people who actually want to take control of their destiny in this game.
