Survivor: Micronesia - Fans Vs Favorites
The Sounds of Jungle Love

But over at the Malakal tribe, we're fishing and stuff. As Ozzy brings in a huge clam, Jonathan tells us again that he feels his tribe is in a good spot for the challenge. Cue the porn music. Ozzy tells us how much he's liking Amanda and how they need to stay away from each other or else everyone will notice. I'll give him this; he never was much of a strategic player. Dude, they noticed it five minutes in. Do you think they're stupid? Continuing on this theme, we see Parvati helping James get coconuts. She tells us that she started out flirting with James, because "he's just so cute." Blech! I think I just threw up in my mouth. Amanda tells us about the James and Parvati thing as well as her and Ozzy aligning with them. She says it's a good alliance but she doesn't want the couple-ness to mess up her game.
And while they all prepare to consummate their alliance, let's see how the Airal 3's new shelter is going. Well, color me impressed. They have a fantastic shelter constructed. So much so that the younger folks are checking it out and taking notes. Tracy, while pleased with her shelter, won't be happy til they have some fire. So the next wave of fire starting commences and it finally works. They found some big clams and with fire, the Fans are finally going to get full. And with the food and water, they seem to be getting along again. It's amazing what a good meal can do for you. And now that they're fed, we learn that Mikey B and Mary are now becoming a couple. Good lord, what the hell am I watching??? We get a confessional from Joel where he mentions that he sees the love connection and while he's keeping his eye on it, he's more concerned with keeping his tribe strong, which means Kathy, Tracy and Chet are in trouble.
Bow chicka wow wow! We come back to the show while most of the Favorites sleep. And while the majority sleeps, Ozzy and Amanda officially become Ozmanda. Thinking everyone's asleep, I'm sure they'll be surprised to know that Cirie and Jonathan are awake and very much aware of what's going on. To quote Cirie, "I think we'll be receiving birth announcements from Amanda on her little Oz-lets that she's about to have." She says it's a little more than just alliances and that's what makes it scary.
Real quick, I have to interject here how disappointed I am in this turn of events. I don't care that people may fall in love out on Survivor. The whole Romber thing doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is the getting hot and heavy physical with all the cameras rolling like that. Leave that shit to the jack-tards on Big Brother. This is Survivor. To me shows like Survivor and the Amazing Race should be above this stuff. Leave that for the MTV, VH1 and Fox reality shows. Try to stay classy from here on out, Survivor. Sorry about that...
