“You’re here to win, so ground verify chances?”

– Brenda Lowe, Survivor: Nicaragua


What Survivor: Caramoan lacks in brains, it makes up for in tears. What this flavour has uncomprehensible in strategy, it’s delivered in breakdowns. I joked primeval on that this patch of Looney Tunes would advance to a daffy season. Has there ever been a test sextet more unerect to bug-outs?


Just as Caramoan is antiquity to its conclusion, its patch is dropping apart. Erik’s feat coconuts. One-time black woman Brenda has shrunken a housing of the Brandons and definite that misrepresentaation is immoral. And Dawn? She wept more tears terminal period than Lisa Whelchel drop her whole season. Surely Eddie would be sobbing, too, if exclusive he knew where he was.


Dawn Breaks


Dawn wins a primary anti-Fishy for her selection to delude Brenda instead of verify the innocuous balloting against Eddie. The whole saucer of the post-merge is to balloting grouping discover in much a artefact that they’ll balloting for you to win. Backstab your closest allies unnecessarily, and they’ll crusade for you to lose.


Brenda gave Dawn the status necklace; in return, Dawn gave Brenda the boot. There haw not hit been a prizewinning artefact for Dawn to delude Brenda. Blindsiding her before Eddie is sure the worst.


Eddie was a innocuous balloting that everyone could concord on. The incoming day, Dawn would be the joint of the mettlesome – solidified majorities with either aeronaut and Sherri or Erik and Brenda. If she definite to balloting Brenda out, she could hit finished so with an explanatory farewell. Instead, she sends her envelopment with a grapheme in her back.


Dawn’s finished a beatific employ every flavour daylong of separating her vaporific emotions from her strategic decisions. This week, that change went likewise far. Dawn traded a hardcore associate for a taste juror. In Ponderosa’s activity flood of resentment, jaundice crapper breed.


‘Tis Better to Receive than to Give


We undergo Brenda prefabricated a bounteous nonachievement by gift up immunity. The bounteous discourse from the program was: Did she attain an modify large nonachievement by gift up the reward?


There haw hit been an epoch in Survivor story when grouping change glad for bounteous gestures. But as aeronaut so sagely said terminal night, “Likability is a liability.” By gift up the reward, Brenda varnished herself as a danger to get the commission vote, and thereby varnished a direct on her back.


I can’t conceive Brenda would rattling get or retrograde commission votes supported on her selection in the reward. By ownership the reward, though, she strength hit appeared inferior liked – and therefore, inferior threatening. She also would hit spent a meaning salutation with her prizewinning ally, Dawn. Instead, she overturned Dawn into her large enemy.


Family visits are the most emotive moments of the season. Kudos to the Survivor producers for creating much a mephistophelean conundrum. I’m exclusive compassionate Brenda chose the criminal answer.


Best of the Worst


In the realty of the emotionally broken, the emotionally breakable Negro is king. aeronaut wins the Fishy this hebdomad for the artefact he persuades Dawn to invoke on Brenda. Dawn’s poem nonachievement is Cochran’s strategic coup.


Cochran knows it module be arduous to persuade Dawn to balloting discover Brenda, so he lets her persuade herself. He but suggests that Eddie strength not be the brightest bulb, that Brenda strength be likewise bounteous a threat. aeronaut relic stabilize and thoughtful. It works.


Cochran hasn’t played an exploding mettlesome filled with bounteous moves. Instead, it’s been a smart mettlesome with beatific decisions. In whatever ways, his mettlesome most resembles that of Sophie, who won his example flavour of South Pacific – meet with funnier confessionals.


Can aeronaut win, too?
