Survivor 39.9 “Two For The Price Of One”

Last night’s episode of Survivor saw not one but two people leaving the game and joining the jury.  Those two people were Aaron and Missy and, quite frankly, it couldn’t have happened to two more deserving people.  After the debacle of last week’s episode, there was something very satisfying about watching both of these arrogant bullies get blindsided.

We jumped straight into the immunity challenge last night.  The tribe was randomly divided into two teams.  One person from each team won immunity and then each team went to a tribal council.  Because it was an endurance challenge (the survivors had to balance on a beam while spinning a ball), the last person standing would not only win one of the two immunities but would also win peanut butter sandwiches for their team.

The Purple team consisted of Aaron, Dan, Dean, Janet, Lauren, and Noura.  Noura won the immunity but also jumped off the beam as soon as she won, which led to the Purple Team losing the reward portion of the challenge.  Aaron snapped at Noura about that, which was probably a mistake on his part, considering how Noura later voted at tribal council.

The orange team consisted of Elaine, Elizabeth, Karishma, Missy, and Tommy.  On that team, Elaine won immunity.  Missy seemed pretty upset about that but she was nowhere near as upset as she would be by the end of the day.

At the Purple Team’s tribal, there was nothing shocking.  Aaron tried to convince everyone to vote out Janet but everyone instead of voted for Aaron because Aaron was viewed as being a physical threat and just kind of a jerk in general.  At trial, Aaron cast his vote for Janet.  5 other votes were cast for Aaron.  Aaron was sent to tribal and it was very satisfying.

(Less satisfying was Janet and Dan apparently forming an alliance but oh well.)

The orange team was a bit more complicated.  Missy was determined to get out Tommy and basically just ordered everyone to vote for him.  Elizabeth, of course, was okay with this but Elaine and Tommy thought Missy was a bigger threat.  Missy made a huge mistake of trying to boss around Karishma.  Karishma didn’t appreciate that and she cast the deciding vote.  By a vote of 3-2, Missy joined the jury.

It was satisfying to see.  After spending a whole season watching Aaron and Missy barking orders at people, last night felt like karma.

In other news, Karishma found the hidden immunity idol.  We’ll have to see if she’s smarter with it than some of her tribemates have been.

    It was so satisfying watching Aaron and Missy go in one episode. I will say Aaron handled it better than I expected. Missy reacted exactly how I thought she would. I’m sure it will drive Missy crazy that Karishma was the deciding vote and Karishma is still in the game while Missy is on the jury.

    I really enjoyed last night’s episode, even through Missy brought up the race card! It was so satisfying to see both Aaron and Missy go in one episode. I have no idea what Missy was thinking when she was bullying Karishma, although I have no love for Karishma either. I hope they don’t keep her around much longer or decide to take her to the end! I am still reeling over Kellee being evicted last week and I hope Tommy the snake pays the price for this next week!

    I couldn’t blame Janet for warming up to Dan, after all just about everyone had turned on her. She just did what she had to do to stay in the game.

    Thanks for another excellent write up Lisa Marie. Hope you have a great week!

    Last night’s episode should have been titled KARMA. Lol. The only thing better would be if Elizabeth went with Aaron and Missi.
    I didn’t like seeing Janet and Dan back together but whatever.
    I was happy to see Karishma stick up for herself but I’d like her, Dan, and Elizabeth be the next to go. I’m rooting for Janet who I doubt will make it to final 3 and Elaine. I love Elaine!
