Last tribal council let Chrissy and Ryan know that Ben was playing them, so this episode opens with Chrissy trying to shame Ben for doing this to them. Chrissy is playing with her emotions, she’s not playing the game. She’s trying to shame people when they play the game. It’s not real life, it’s a game and you have to treat it that way.
Well, there’s a smart trick I’ve never seen before. I’ve seen people make fake immunity necklaces to sway a vote or to throw people off. I’ve never seen anyone hide a fake immunity necklace hoping someone else will find it and think they’re safe. That’s kind of genius, and a new move.
I agree with Lauren that Chrissy and Ben are both playing this very personally.
This is the kind of cool thing where you only get half the idol and you have to get the other half in front of everybody. Lauren had NO problem getting the other half of the idol – I guess it wouldn’t be too hard no one would think anything of her picking up a seashell on a beach.
She ends up giving Mike the shell once Ben blows up her game and tells everyone she has an idol and she has the secret advantage. She’s trying to garner trust – but, if what we saw was how she gave it to him, it didn’t seem like there was much thought behind it on her part. She just handed it to him in passing. There was no “meeting of the mind” so to speak.
That is a sucky way for Lauren to go home, but the look on her face when she realizes what’s going to happen is priceless.
Ben made the perfect move for his game, in this instance, but, Ben has a lot of work to do because everybody voted for him in this tribal. He used his Idol, so he’s completely exposed now, unless he wins challenges or maybe there might be another idol out there somewhere – this late in the game though, I don’t know. From here to the end unless he sways everybody to come to his side, finds an idol, an advantage, or wins all the challenges, I don’t think he’s too long for this game and Chrissy may yet be there past him. What a rise from the ashes for her!
Who do you think, at this point, will be there in the end? I am not sure Ben will make it, I don’t think Chrissy will either. I think Ryan may have a chance – and I’d love to see Dr. Mike win, I think.
