What a GREAT episode!  This was the best one yet!  From the nasty reward challenge to the pouring down rain in the immunity challenge, to the eviction of Ashley, we are closing in on the merge. 

I was very impressed with Monica in the reward challenge.  I thought she would wuss out and either puke or quit like Ashley but she downed that drink like a pro.  And what about Ashley?  She had one more gulp and Foa Foa would have sent it to tie breaker.  WHAT WAS SHE THINKING??  She totally let her team down when they desperately could have used the nourishment.   I think Shambo got the shaft and I didn’t care for Russell S. saying the playing field was even because she lost a chicken.  Hell, he can’t even make fire.  I understand they need the chickens and they want eggs but how many eggs can two chickens produce anyway?  I know most of you don’t like her, but I think she is great.  She is a hard worker and takes on any task that is asked of her, including taking care of the chickens.  She downed her drink in one gulp and I believe she should have gotten to partake in the reward. 

How about those coconuts?  Russell H. did his best to hold on to his net for as long as possible.  Why couldn’t foa foa make any shots?  I mean, come on!  Jaison and Mick look athletic and for that matter, Jaison is an athlete.  They couldn’t get them in the nets and of course Galu was making the shot every time.  John kicked butt, making two at a time so I know it wasn’t hard.  Not taking anything away from my guy but he is more the brainy type.  I was totally disappointed in foa foa.  The merge should be coming up in what, 2 weeks?  It is looking like there will only be 4 left out of team foa foa. 

Who do you want to win it all?  My favorites are Russell H., Shambo, John and Mick.  I like all of them and think they are all strong competitors.  It looked like Shambo hurt her hand but they never showed it however she couldn’t participate in the challenge.  I didn’t see what happened so if anyone knows please enlighten me.  What did you think about episode 5 and did foa foa make the right decision evicting Ashley?
