Survivor 37.12 “Are You Feeling Lucky?”

Hi, everyone!

I’m back from my vacation!  Thank you, Erin, for the great work you did filling in for me while I was gone!

Last night, I returned just in time to …. see Christian voted out.


Oh well.  I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.  It seems like almost every season features one castaway who comes out of nowhere, captures everyone’s heart, and then ends up getting voted out right before the finale.  It sucks but it makes sense.  Nobody wants to go to the end with someone who would be unbeatable.

Last night’s episode was kind of a strange one.  After a massive build-up, the plots to take out either Nick or Davie didn’t really go anywhere.  Nick confessed to Davie that he had made a fake immunity idol and, as soon as he did that, Davie abandoned his plan to vote out Nick.  Mike tried to get Nick to vote out Davie by acting like a little snitch and telling Nick that Davie had been throwing his name around.  But, ultimately, Nick didn’t take the bait.  Instead, Nick joined with Kara and Angelina to vote out Christian.

Davie wouldn’t have been voted out even if Nick had come after him.  Davie had a one-time only immunity idol so he was safe at tribal council.  Nick allowed his paranoia to get the better of him and he also played his immunity idol.  So, now, all of the immunity idols have been played and Christian has been voted out.  Next week’s finale should be …. well, I won’t say wild.  But it might be interesting.

Here’s your final six players, in alphabetical order:

Alison — For some reason, Alison is viewed as being some sort of a threat.  I guess she is, in that she hasn’t really gotten anyone mad at her.  She’s pretty much just kept her head down and kept out of everyone’s way.  I guess she has a chance of winning if she makes it to the final three but an Alison victory would be a boring conclusion to an otherwise interesting season.

Angelina — Angelina has somehow survived to reach the final six, despite not really doing much.  Her strategy, so far, has been to beg people to let her win stuff.  If she makes it to the final three, expect to hear her talk about how she got rice for the camp.

Davie — If Davie wins, it would be a great story.  By his own admission, he doesn’t have much outdoor experience and yet, he’s thrived in this game.  Davie’s going to have to win some immunity challenges to make it to the end, though.  I get the feeling he’s going to be everyone’s target.

Kara — Who?  I always forget that Kara’s out there.

Mike — Considering how much I loved Mike on The Amazing Race, it’s amazing how little I think of him on Survivor.  Of course, on the Amazing Race, he was working with his father.  On Survivor, he’s on his own and his game can best be described as passive-aggressive.

Nick — Nick is not always the most likable person on the beach but I do think he deserves to make it to the final three.  At the start of this season, it was easy to make fun of Nick’s obsession with forming alliances and giving them cutesy names but those alliances have pretty much shaped the entire game.

So, I guess my ideal final three would be Davie, Nick, and …. I guess, Alison.  And, out of those three, I’d want Davie to win but I’d still be happy if Nick won.

If the final three turns out to be Angelina, Kara, and Mike, I will throw something at the TV.

We’ll see what happens!

    Welcome back! Hope you had a good vacay.

    I’m with you, Davie for the win. Or maybe Nick. The rest, not so much. And if Angelina, Mike, and Kara are the final three; whelp, that would suck. I was sorry to see Christian go. Too bad there’s no America’s Favorite Player – he’d be a shoo-in.

    Wow, don’t even say that, Lisa. Your poor TV. But Bob may be right as, Davie and Nick are on the radar, and it looks like Mike and the girls would team up. Of those, he is the one really doing the thinking. I enjoyed all the plotting.

    Getting Christian out was the right move. He will be missed. Have you seen the Ponderosa video yet, it’s pretty funny. They are doing a fine job this year showcasing the Jury and the little entertainment bits they are doing are hilarious.

    Welcome back and hope you had a good time. The other Bowman Sister did a fine job holding things together here.

    OMG! I’m in total agreement with your final 3 choices and throwing something at the tv. I didn’t know who Davie even was until about 3 weeks ago. He is my fave to win it right now. Next would be Nick but he has angered me. I have no clue who Kara is. I can not even picture her with anyone else in the game. Next show I can see I will be focused on finding her. I agree with your summation about Allison also. She is a strong woman but I don’t see her as a threat. Mike. OMG! I loved him at first. I wanted him to win. He has greatly disappointed me with his game play. He started out really smart and then I have no clue what happened. Was it greed or paranoia? Too weird. I hope Nick realizes that Mike told him that Christian was going against him but that he didn’t get any votes. Maybe that will help him go against Mike. Doubtful. Still hate Angelina. Her whining and self centeredness is grating on my nerves. Every last one of them. I really wish she was voted out the episode where she got them the rice. That’s it. That’s the end of my whining rant. =0)

      Angelina really is too much. Does she seriously believe that the producers of the show would just let them all starve to death? So, Survivor just turns into a big snuff film, with tribe mates dying left and right of starvation, and that’s okey doke? Sure, right, CBS would be fine with that. Thank God she was there to save the day!!
