NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE OF THE FIRST 27 DAYS IN SAMOA REVEALS HIDDEN SECRETS AND DEVIOUS PLANS, ON “SURVIVOR SAMOA”
In never before seen footage, one castaway reveals a guarded secret and the whole tribe suffers at the hands of Russell in the aftermath of the merge.
Generally I don’t like the recap episode but sometimes it can be entertaining. Hopefully, this is one of those times. Instead of making it the Russell show, maybe we can get a look at some of the contestants we know very little about. Brett has made it pretty far and yet played an insignificant role. With the exception of the leaked information about being acquainted with Laura, I know nothing about this fellow. He seems like a nice guy but who knows with the way all the editing has favored Russ.
Who do yall think discloses a guarded secret? Is it from the promo when Russ tells Mick he owns an oil company? And what shenaningans did he come up with after the merge?
It has come to my attention in the last couple of days by missyae that Laura and Brett were acquantainces prior to being on Survivor Samoa. Apparently they attend the same church in Salem, Oregon. I have a real problem with this. It puts a whole new perspective on the game for me because not only did CBS cast both of them but they put them on the same team. Can you say unfair advantage?? It is also possible that Dave knew both of them previously but this has not been confirmed. Now I totally understand why Brett and Dave were so ready to pick the stones and help Laura. I wonder if the other contestants knew about this? If I were on the show and found out later that they knew each other you can bet that I would be raising all kinds of hell. The only upside is that neither of them won or even made it to the final 3. I am not happy with this and hope in future seasons of Survivor we will not see this kind of underhanded bs by the production team.
What is everyone’s opinion on this and do you think it caused Laura and Brett to have an advantage over the other players?
I would say that Survivor Samoa episode definitely lived up to the hype! I laughed and cheered all the way through the show. So let’s break it down. First the reward challenge. My husband loved the fact that Nat’s boobs popped out and wanted to see an unedited version. Too bad there is not one out there. But it did look fun and the purple team kicked butt. I was happy to see Russ and Natalie get some food. The yellow team’s mistake was putting John in the sling. I know he has to weigh more than Monica so in my opinion it would have made more sense to let her grab the flags. Russell did get his clue and what did he do with? He ran away from Dave and found the idol again! Wow! How is that even possible? Even if you don’t like his tactics, he has to be one of the best to ever play the game. I am amazed and dumbfounded right now.
The Immunity Challenge: The best part of the show for me was when Laura missed the tiles and Shambo bursts out laughing and then says “Today is the day of reckoning.” I about fell off the couch. Could she be any more obvious? It was a good moment. And what about Brett breaking two tiles? That was great except he didn’t have as good of aim at the cross bow as Mick and finally Mick prevails and wins the immunity idol. Very happy for him and the former foa members. About time!
Tribal Council: Even though I knew what was going down, thanks to missyae, it was still exciting and I was on the edge of my seat. I was actually surprised to see Natalie as the Galu pick instead of one of the guys. I guess they didn’t see Jaison as a threat. When the vote went 5-5 I knew John had to flip but Monica kept looking down and for a minute I thought it might have been her who voted out Laura. I don’t blame John. Why would he keep Laura in the game and chance getting the stones? Granted it is a 1 in 8 chance but for a million dollars I would have sent her packing too. I thought it was a smart move on his part. What do yall think? Would you have chanced it and picked the rocks?
One more thing: The foa’s came into the merge with the odds stacked against them at 8-4. Look at them now! They convinced Galu to vote out Erik, they brought over Shambo, Russ played the idol and then found 2 more, sent Kelly home and tonight forced a tie that led to Laura getting evicted. What a comeback! It has to be the best ever in Survivor history. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t remember one.
Next episode: Russell is back to his old self and we see the return and the demise of the chicken. I didn’t know they still had the chicken. It is going to be good! :twisted:
