Well, quite a fantastic episode of Survivor tonight! Starts off with the Edge, Parvati & Sandra arrive. But, here's the thing. Sandra, the queen of Survivor knows she sucks at challenges. Heck, she has the sit out bench named after her. So, no doubt in her mind, she's pulling the flag and going home. She figures, why stay if she can never win a challenge? So, goodbye Sandra Diaz-Twine, the queen stays queen, adios, you legend. You may be out, but that doesn't change that you're the queen. Then at Sele, Yul spoke with Wendell, explaining how Wendell's actions were very poorly done and how he caused chaos when he didn't even need to. Wendell thanked him and appreciated his honesty. Though, the next day, Michele spoke with him about it and he was more aggressive in terms of his speech about it. Yet, she even gave him a token to confirm her trust afterwards but, something's off with Wendell. Yeah, he may have dug his own grave.
Wow! What an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice choice to the new Yara tribe. Taking out Boston Rob was absolutely the right move. He's a brilliant player, but he should've known that with returning winners, the "buddy system" is less likely to work as effectively, only adds negativity and hatred, as was shown when everyone voted him out. And now, Sophie & Sarah are running the show. And, seems Ben really wants to get with them while Adam, maybe a little left out, but, maybe not, who knows? Meanwhile at the Edge, The original power couple of Rob & Amber are reunited and now, a game of finding the advantage to sell. Everyone's gonna search to see if they can get their next fire token. They looked and looked, but ultimately, through some trickery and sneakiness, Tyson found an idol nullifier that he had to sell to someone and he sold it to someone that he figured would buy it, Parvati, and she did. And how did Tyson celebrate his one fire token? Buying and hiding some peanut butter from everyone to enjoy during his time on the Edge. Sneaky work, Tyson. But, more food than your compatriets will get and maybe, just maybe, it'll be enough calories to boost up your chances of winning that future challenge to get you back in the game.
Well, with all of this worrying about coronavirus, at least I still have one thing that keeps me happy, Survivor. And boy, what a great episode of this amazing season. First off, good work to Dakal on taking out Tyson. And now, Nick is a little more rich for it. But, with happiness somewhere, there's sadness somewhere else. While chatting with his tribemates, Yul remembers one of his tribemates from his original season, his buddy, Jonathan Penner. The thing with him now, is Penner's wife, Stacy has ALS. She can't move except for her eyes and there's no known cure. So, I really feel for them. We watch Survivor but people like Stacy are true Survivors. So, hopefully there'll one day be a cure and Stacy can move and be happy once again with her husband, Jonathan by her side.
On January 26, 2020, the world was really shaken up. My world was really shaken up. Kobe Bryant, a legendary NBA player, his daughter, Gianna and 7 others were tragically killed in a helicopter crash. I know, it seems like it's been so long already, but to me, I just can't keep my mind off of it. I grew up loving the Los Angeles Lakers, especially Kobe. How he played, what he and the Lakers represented, he was one of my heroes. I even went to a Lakers game for my 18th birthday. He wasn't there but his spirit certainly was. I could feel the Lakers energy in the room, even if Kobe wasn't playing that night. So, when the crash happened, something inside of me broke.
Wow! What an incredible episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice move to the 4 who blindsided Ethan. As sad it was, it was a brilliant move. And Adam, you have a lot of work to do, man. You definitely screwed up by telling Rob. As for Dakal, it's nice to celebrate the small things. Yul's right on point about that. Dakal is thriving, eating well and they made it a quarter through the game with 9 members still in tact. That's worth celebrating. And the Edge. The difficult task of moving 20 logs, one log at a time from the top of the hill to the camp, finished by sundown. Those four pushed through and did it. Natalie rocked it, Danni & Amber fought in second and Ethan, poor guy. He pushed himself to nearly fainting. Dude, I get you're a pro at this but it's okay to stop and breathe. I know you're a competitor but, calm down. Us fans would rather have you lose a fire token than have you lose your spot in the game due to a medevac. But, after medical did convince him, he took his breaks and he pulled it off, with Danni, Amber & Natalie all with him for support. Great job, Ethan. You beat cancer, you can beat the Edge of Extinction.
So, wow. What a great episode tonight! First off, it was probably the best move to take out Danni. But, it's still Survivor, there's still more to come. For instance, Rob woke up Adam with a leaf and then, Adam started talking his way into taking out Parvati, hoping to get closer to Ethan & Rob without having that worry of Parvati always being above him in terms of trust with Rob & Ethan. And the new schoolers seemed into it. But, Ben wants Rob out, but he seems OK with the Parv vote. However, Adam then decided to tell Ethan, hoping to not blindside him with the Parvati vote. The issue is, he knows that Parvati is pretty much his #1 in the game. So, Ethan will likely let his ally know that Adam is after her.
