I completely missed last weeks episode because American Idol. I could've watched it on the CBS website, but I didn't really feel like it since I found out that Sandy got the boot.
For this episode, I loved all the challenges. The only small gripe was Jeff Probst didn't announce the letters from home as a reward prize (unless I missed it). I think it could have given Timbira some more motivation, but oh well. With the whole Exile thing, I'm soooo glad that Stephen didn't tell anyone about the secret alliance. I had my doubts, and I was worried ... on a side note, Jeff Probst confirmed something about the hidden immunity idol (hii) on a blog that he writes for EW.
Here's the exert:
... INSIGHT: Within the rules of Survivor, Taj has absolutely zero claim to the idol. If you give the idol to someone for "safe keeping" you better trust them because the person who possesses it owns it. Period. The only exception is theft -you cannot steal the idol from someone.
So the moment Taj handed that idol to Stephen she gave away the single most powerful thing in the game and trust me, Stephen is aware of this stroke of luck. Even if she had put conditions on it, such as "you have to give it to me if I need it" - doesn't matter. Remember Dreams and Yau-Man and the car negotiation for a vote that never materialized. Same thing. A Survivor agreement is only as good as the word of the person on the other end of the negotiation. ...
When Timbira won the immunity challenge, I was soooo happy because I wanted Sierra, Brendan, and Erinn safe since they are my favs. Erinn has grown on my because her confessionals about Coach. They got me laughing each time! I hope she stays around long because she's entertaining. At Jalapao, I still have the name problem. I only know
three two peoples names. I really liked both people that were chosen by that one dude to get voted out. Unless I missed it last week, what does the blond even do on that tribe ... anything?
It looks like March Madness will takes its usual Spring toll on Survivor. There is no show next week. Then, the week after is a Wednesday recrap show (March 25th). Has there even been enough episodes one of these, yet?!? Anyway, we have to wait until, I think, April 2nd for a new episode ... ugh!
