If you didn’t agree with me last week when I said Survivor: One World is filled with stupid players, there’s no way in hell you’ll disagree with me tonight. What happened on tonight’s episode is truly one of the most shocking things I’ve ever seen in all 24 season. If you missed the episode and don’t want any spoilers, turn back now! For those of you still reading, what the hell just happened?!?! To volunteer to go to Tribal Council after winning Immunity is absolutely stunning. Even worse, Colton was thrilled with the entire experience and let us know several times that he is the person controlling the game. How on earth could anybody listen to any strategy Colton has to offer? I’m truly stunned. Read on for more about tonight’s mess!
Before we get to all the insanity, there were a few other highlights from tonight’s episode. The women won the Reward challenge, which gave them to choice to pick their reward from three options: 1) pillows, blankets and a mattress; 2) tarp; 3) doughnuts and coffee. They chose the tarp. The other funny thing about this challenge is that Tarzan repeatedly called Jonas by the name Jason several times — even after he was corrected.
While sitting on the beach with Bill at camp, Leif spilled the original plan for the last elimination: Colton was campaigning to get Bill out of the game. Bill was truly stunned by the news. “The gloves are off and it’s anybody’s game,” he said. Having witnessed the discussion from a distance, Michael told Colton about it, which brought this response: “That little Munchkin is about to get knocked back to Oz.” Seriously, Colton? Even in Survivor, that isn’t a very funny remark. So, naturally, Colton summoned Leif to question if he did tell Bill was an actual target. After initially denying it, Leif eventually admitted that he had slipped and told Bill the plan that had formed against him. Colton was clearly angry with Leif and told him that he just dug his own grave.
The men easily won the Immunity challenge, which left the women upset they were faced with going to Tribal Council. But those feelings were pushed to the side because Colton came up with a crazy idea when talking with Troy and Colton about his feelings with Bill. “Maybe I should go to those girls and say, ‘Do y’all wanna trade and we’ll go to Tribal Council tonight? Because we have a lot more to deal with than y’all.’” He wanted to get rid of Bill so badly that he was able to convince the rest of his tribe to go to Tribal Council voluntarily. “I absolutely hate Bill,” Colton said in confessional. “I hate his voice. I hate his jokes. He’s not funny. ‘I’m a stand-up comedian.’ Shut up. Get a real job. You are disgusting. I hate him. I want his head on a platter.”
The episode then took an odd twist with Tarzan chastising Leif for telling Bill that their alliance was aiming to vote him off in the previous elimination. “You should not have done that. That was bad.” It was almost like Tarzan was talking to a child. It was even more shocking that Leif didn’t try to stand up for himself a little more. Tarzan said that volunteering to go to this Tribal Council would rid them of Leif — the person who betrayed them.
When it came time for Tribal Council the men showed up to a very stunned Jeff Probst. The look on his face is one we have never seen before. He shook his head and really seemed at a loss for words. “24 seasons, some 400 Tribal Councils, never had a tribe arrive at Tribal Council after winning Immunity.” When fingers started pointing at Leif, he said he plays the game with his heart on his sleeve and really messed up. Moments later, Probst asked Jay a great question: Why not just wait until the next time they lose to vote out the person they wanted out? Jay said it seemed goofy to voluntarily attend Tribal Council, but agreed to go with the majority decision out of fear that he could be the next to go.
But here’s where it got really nutty. After Probst had some banter with Bill, the chatter turned to Colton. He didn’t hold anything back by saying he doesn’t like Bill because “he’s obnoxious, loud and a struggling stand-up comic.” Colton said he needs to get a real job. Bill, I’m glad to say, stood up for himself and told Colton his back story about being poor with tears in his eyes.
It wasn’t long before race came up and Colton said he has African American people in his life — his housekeeper. Wow, Colton. Wow. You are going down rough territory and nobody is going to like you outside of the show. After Bill offered a few heated words in Colton’s spoiled-brat direction, Tarzan interjected and said he is tired of people blaming race. He also argued that Colton was being painted negatively as a rich kid who doesn’t have to work. Uh… That’s because he is! Colton has proven he’s nothing but a spoiled brat. He acts like everybody in the game owes him the world. I wonder if he’s embarrassed to be on national television acting like such a child. I have a feeling Colton was hoping his villainous role would earn him respect from fans like it did for Russell Hantz. Trouble is, Russell wasn’t so hateful. Russell was actually fun to watch. When Colton is on the screen I can’t wait for him to be off. I really was feeling bad for Colton at the beginning of the game, but now I can’t wait for him to be voted off next. I just don’t understand how he is in charge of the group. It is shocking that anybody would value Colton’s strategy or opinions.
When the votes were tallied, the Manono tribe wound up voting against Bill and sent him packing. Damn. What a mess.
