Survivor Micronesia: Fans Vs. Favorites
He's a ball of goo!

Hello, good people, and welcome back to the BOP Survivor Recap. Previously on Survivor: the Favorites took control of the game, Ozzy found the hidden idol, Chet was useless, Tracy took a gamble, Joel bought it hook line and sinker and Mikey B took an early exit. One of the more stupid votes in Survivor history looks to be moot point as the tribes will mix up tonight. The previews also teased that Joel and Ozzy will end up on the same tribe, Amanda will wrestle a shark and Jonathan will need the medical team. Should be an exciting show, so let's get right to it.
We begin at the Fans tribe after the Mikey B boot and Jason is pretty bummed. He realizes that not only is his tribe even weaker than before, but he's also on the short side of the numbers. We then join Tracy and Chet talking about how Jason's next. And Chet just can't wait to see him go. Which can only mean that Chet has no desire to actually win a challenge while he's on this island. And these are supposedly "HUGE" fans of Survivor? Give me a break.
We come back from the opening credits to the Favorites tribe and attention turns to the chickens. Charlie the chicken is down to his last few minutes as Ozzy, James and Ami take care of Charlie and the cooking commences. As everyone heads out to get wood and stuff to take care of cooking Charlie, Ozzy breaks away and finds himself a nice hiding spot for the idol. Pretty smart move when you figure that a couple times people have gone through other player's stuff and found idols. But after taking so much care of the idol, he goes right out to tell James, Parvati and Amanda that he has it. Amanda tells us that this makes their little clique the powerhouse right now. Wow...maybe that was a poor time to mention that, because....
Probst sighting!! "Drop your buffs, we are switching tribes." He has everyone grab a rock out of a bag. The person that grabs the purple stone and the person that grabs the orange stone will be the captains. First off, let me just say that I'm a little annoyed by this for a couple reasons. The first is that the Fans won't have the chance to be completely screwed by their stupid vote. They basically scored a Get Out of Jail Free card here and that pisses me off. Second, since we're blending the tribes, I'm going to have to actually learn the tribe names. DOH!!! After the drawing, the captains are Natalie and Ozzy. Natalie will captain the Airai tribe and Ozzy the Malakal. And by the way...how funny would it have been for Ozzy to end up on the new Airai and have to lose his hidden idol? That would have been hilarious. Anyway, now it's time for the dreaded school yard pick 'em - which will certainly expose Chet, Kathy and Eliza as the weak links.
