Ep 13 – “He’s amazing”
There was something about this week’s episode (and previous episodes, too) that made me think that the winner of this season will be either Ben or Chrissy.
In the beginning of the episode we saw everyone come back from Tribal all shocked and amazed at how things went. Ryan looked like he just couldn’t believe what had happened. Like Ben just became he’s new Survivor idol, he was just staring and then went: “he’s amazing” when everyone else was talking about definitely voting him out next. It was so funny.
The reward challenge was great this week, I mean, the reward was amazing. Another thing that made me go “wow” in that challenge was when Devon didn’t choose Ashley to go with them on the reward. He didn’t even mention his name, Chrissy said Ryan and Devon just agreed. Or at least we didn’t see that he tried to pitch Ashley’s name. Ashley was so hurt and I don’t blame her, I could just hear her heart break the moment they said Ryan’s name. And I bet that at that moment Ashley also knew that hers and Devon’s alliance was done for. I was shocked again when, at the reward, Devon was so quick to jump ship over to Chrissy and Ryan. I was pretty much shouting at my screen, going: “No! No, don’t you dare!” In a way I can see the strategy behind it, but I still felt like he should’ve stayed with Ashley because they were friends. I could never play Survivor because I even watch it with my heart, not my head. Like I said, I understand the strategy behind the decisions but I’m still hurt on behalf of the people they betray. I can’t see it as just a game, I feel like if you’ve developed a friendship as well as an alliance, then you should stick to it. Otherwise you’re basically a horrible person 😀
What I couldn’t believe was how no-one followed Ben at camp. They let him go off by himself, obviously looking for the idol, and none of them went after him!? He already blindsided everyone with one idol that no-one knew about, you would think they wouldn’t want that to happen again. Even Ben said it himself, that they are crazy for not following him! I just don’t get it how they did not do that! Although, I guess it didn’t really matter since they all decided to go against Ashley.
In a way this episode was a bit boring again because as soon as Devon made the alliance with Chrissy and Ryan, you knew Ashley would be going home. Especially when Ben found the idol again. And you knew he would find it because they showed him looking for it. There was no surprise element to the Tribal this week, even though I was still shocked that Devon actually voted for Ashley. And I was a tad annoyed with Ben’s cockyness. He was being annoying. It almost feels like they are all taking things very personal and that’s why they are arguing so much.
Even though this season has been quite up and down for me, I still can’t wait to see the final episode and see who wins. My money would be on Chrissy or Ben. But who knows, maybe we’ll all be surprised and Mike will win the whole thing! That would be something, wouldn’t it! I most likely won’t be writing about the finale because I will already be on my way to spend the holidays with family when the episode is out and as much as I love Survivor, I love my family more. I won’t be spending the little time I have with them on the computer watching and writing about Survivor. I might just have to go read spoilers in the facebook group to see who won and then watch it episode later after the holidays.
It’s been fun! Happy holidays everyone! xKx
