Survivor: One World Recap — Bad Players & Stupid Strategies

February 29, 2012 07:48 PM by Ryan Haidet

The close finish to the Immunity challenge was the best part of tonight’s episode of Survivor: One World, which wasn’t a very good one.  To be honest, I just wasn’t feeling anything with this episode.  It didn’t seem entertaining.  It didn’t feel fun.  It just didn’t deliver for me.  Maybe you feel differently, but this episode just wasn’t for me and I think it’s because of the stupidity many of these players exhibit.  How did everything go down and who was voted out?  Read on to find out!

The episode kicked off with a wicked storm sweeping in.  With a tarp for their shelter, Colton and Jonas offered to share their space with the women so they could stay dry and warm.  The women stubbornly refused and decided to stick it out.  What a mistake that turned out to be.  When morning came, the rain was still coming down and the women were absolutely soaked.  Their teeth were chattering and their morale was beaten down.  Suddenly, they decided they needed to use Manono’s fire and shelter to dry themselves out.  Smart.

After they asked Troy, he told them it was fine for them to use their space to get warmed up, but that choice left Matt pissed off.  When he came back from fishing, he was upset to see the women using his team’s shelter and fire to make themselves feel better.  He didn’t want to give the women anything for nothing in return.

Yes, Matt may seem like a jerk, but his points were actually starting to make some sense.  Why should his tribe constantly help the women with nothing in return.  It’s a game.

Boat Battle

The women won fishing supplies — including a canoe and paddles — after dominating the Reward challenge.  But their celebration was quickly flooded out when they returned to their waterlogged camp.  They had to fix their crummy shelter and somehow spark a new fire so they could finally get some warmth during the seemingly endless storm.  Not so shockingly, the women couldn’t start a fire and Monica once again asked the men to borrow another ember.  Instead of directly saying no, Jay offered up a deal.  He said they would give them an ember if the women would let them use the boat they had just won.  Monica said that she couldn’t cut that deal without negotiating with the rest of her tribe.  Somehow, after all that, she was given an ember anyway.

Moments later, Chelsea and Alicia came over to the men’s camp to warm up and dry out.  This is when Chelsea opened her mouth and stupidly told the men how cool the boat is.  D’oh!  What a mistake.  Her comment lit Jay up and he instantly told her they were going to be using the boat, too.  Alicia was stunned by that idea and said it wasn’t very reasonable.  Huh?  The men have let you all sit in their shelter numerous times, they have helped you with fire and you think their request to use your boat is unreasonable?!?!

As you might expect, the men were pretty upset.

Immunity challenge

Thank goodness for this Immunity challenge!  It was the only bright moment in this lackluster hour.  Bill and Sabrina were the callers for their respective tribes and shouted out orders to all of their blindfolded tribemates within a course.  At those orders, the blindfolded members had to find their way to five different stations and pull on a rope, which released colored water and a bag with puzzle pieces.  After all five bags were collected, the caller then had to work alone on the puzzle.

From the moment the challenge began, the men had a massive lead.  Bill was working on the puzzle several minutes before the women even arrived at that portion of the challenge.  But here’s where it got interesting.  Once Sabrina started her puzzle, she solved it much faster and found herself tied with Bill.  The tension was definitely thick as they both worked to place their final piece, but it was Sabrina who pulled through and brought victory to the women.  It was a massive comeback.  Massive.

Muscles & Average Guys

When the men returned to camp, it seemed the strategy started immediately.  Colton, was calling the shots with his alliance of Tarzan, Troy, Jonas and Leif.  Because he was annoyed with everything Bill was saying and doing, Colton told his group that he should be their first target.  In confessional he even called Bill “ghetto trash.” Here’s where I got very frustrated with Colton.  For somebody who claims to be a superfan, he’s playing such a miserable game.  To play based on personal feelings about somebody is an awful strategy.  It’s also sad to see somebody who was very emotional about not being accepted by either group for the first few days doing the exact same thing to other people.

Although Colton was pushing for Bill, his alliance — which wrapped Jay in before the vote — wound up voting against Matt’s arrogant ass.  I just hope Colton gets the boot soon so we can be spared his silly gameplay and nasty attitude.  Some superfan.  Colton, I’m not picking on you, but I can’t stand the way you’re playing this game.  I was rooting for you in the beginning, but tonight you are made it harder and harder for me to be on your side.  Can you prove me wrong?  Possibly, with a tribal swap, which I think is coming next week.

What did you think of tonight’s episode?  Do you think Colton is playing an amazing or an awful game?  Are you happy Matt was voted out?  Sound off and leave a comment below!

    Ugh these women are so STUPID this season… Just plain STUPID!!! These women are to stuck up and pi**ed off with the men that’s it’s going to come back to haunt them towards the end. It just showed on the next episode that the women are starting to fight and of course it’s a moronic strategy to vote all the men off and think all the clamoring women will work together. If these women were smart they would start siding with one of the guys and start making another team. These women need to quit thinking that they are all just going to all work together as a group. It’s like duh if they vote off all the men which women starts to go. This season is so stupid with such stupid strategies.
