Hello, good people, and welcome to a March Madness Wednesday edition of the BOP Survivor Recap. With college basketball taking center stage on our usual Thursday night, I sure hope you all found Survivor on its temporary night. Of course, if you didn't, that's what I'm here for. Previously on Survivor: Jonathan had an owie, Malakal lost ANOTHER challenge, Jonathan got med evac'd, Malakal lost ANOTHER challenge, Ami talked about joining the fans and Chet begged to be sent home (and got his wish.) Tonight's episode promises a lot of Kathy crying. Please tell me there's more to it than that. There just has to be, right?
We begin the show at the Malakal beach the day after the Chet vote. Once again, Survivor is having a chicken issue. Tracy is complaining that the chickens are not laying enough eggs and that they should just kill them. Ozzy refuses to do that. He says they lay eggs every day, and why get rid of an every day resource? Tracy then tells us how Ozzy is the kingpin of the tribe and he tells them what to do, when to do it, what to eat and that he will win this game if they don't do something about him soon.
We come back from the credits to see what Airai is up to. James is working, as usual. The rest of the tribe is hiding in the cave because it's raining. Kathy is whining up a storm. James is getting annoyed listening to the girls complain. He mentions that they're playing a game called "Survivor." Kathy then tells us how terrible her day is. She's been thinking of home a lot and she's getting very homesick.
Back at the happy camp that is Malakal, Ozzy has a stalker. Ozzy has a stalker. Erik is just in awe of Ozzy. But, I don't think he wants to be like Ozzy. I think he wants to Mark David Chapman him and become Ozzy. We get a scene of Erik climbing a coconut tree and Cirie making fun of them. She suggests that if Ozzy were to propose marriage, Erik would probably say okay. So, Ozzy gets the bright idea to move the boat to the other side of the island, because there's more fish back there. So naturally, he asks Cirie, because she loves the water so much. So Ozzy, Erik, Amanda and Cirie head out to sea. Cirie tells us that Ozzy is all about Ozzy and no one else.
Probst sighting!! Today's challenge is for four people to be blindfolded as they push a giant money stone through a jungle course. The other two people will guide them. As they go, they must roll through four puzzle stations, break a ceramic tile and free two smaller money stones. Once they have all four sets of stones, the final two people will put them together on a puzzle board. Wanna know what they're playing for? They're playing for sponsor plug, sponsor plug** Herbal Essence Great Escape Spa. All kinds of cleaning products and some food. Natalie will sit out the challenge for Airai, and we're on.
