Survivor Gabon: Earth's Last Eden
The Brains Behind Everything

Jeff starts out Tribal by asking Randy about the reward challenge. He asks about all the tension. Randy basically says that no one was listening to him, so that made him mad. Whatever, let's move on, k? Jeff asks Randy about how he has been pretty clear that he didn't miss any of his original Fang tribemates. Before he can answer, Crystal jumps in and wants to know why he has such a big problem with her. Here we go. This should be good. He says that she made Fang a living hell. She said she and GC were arrogant and caused the division in their tribe and she was the reason why they lost. Jeff asks Crystal if she regrets any of her emotions coming out. She says not at all. Jeff asks Charlie if he thinks Crystal or Randy should be concerned about being so vocal. He says he definitely thinks so.
Jeff moves on to Ken and asks him if opinions start to change as the tribe gets together. Ken says that he has a different opinion of Charlie now as he's realized that he's a nice guy. Charlie says his opinion of Ken hasn't changed a bit as he thought he was a great guy from the outset. He asks Randy if his opinion of anyone has changed. He says that Ken has grown up quite a bit. He's not the same Kenny he met weeks ago. Jeff asks Sugar if it was an advantage to be on Exile as much as she was. She says that it gives them more of a chance to talk about her. She feels confident that she wouldn't be bothering anyone as she doesn't talk about people behind their backs and that she pretty well knows who everyone is. Next up is whether or not Susie wants to give up the immunity necklace. She says no. And with that, it's time to vote.
We see Randy's vote for Crystal (C.C.) with one word, "Bitch." We see Ken's vote for Charlie saying, "Sorry Charlie." Next up we see Charlie's vote for Crystal saying that she got rid of Marcus and that makes him really mad. Then Sugar steps up and they show us the "C" as she starts off and after some crying and several seconds she finally casts her vote and we're ready to tally the votes. No one plays a hidden idol and we'll read the votes. First and second votes are for Crystal. Third and fourth votes are for Crystal. As Randy and Corinne get a little excited, the next four votes come up Charlie and we're dead even. Now it all comes down to Sugar. And she went with the evil empire and voted out Charlie. Seriously, if I have to see the smug little smiles on Ken's and Crystal's faces again, I just may puke. Over the last three weeks, this season has taken a dramatic turn toward the dark side and I just can't stand it. Now, I have no love for Corinne or Randy, but I find Crystal so vile I can't even stand to see her face and Ken is without a doubt the biggest liar to ever play the game. While I know that lying and deception are part of the game, I can't recall any player ever just straight up lying dead in the faces of the other players like this. Jonny Fairplay is the closest I can come up with, but I don't think the dead grandma can even compare with the whoppers Ken is telling to get people dumped. Oh well, another Survivor season that appears destined to have less than favorable results. *Sigh*
Next time on Survivor: Randy goes loco. He is determined to stir up as much trouble as he can. Looks like he's starting with Matty, telling him that the final three is obviously Ken, Crystal and Susie and he needs to do something about it. Corinne then tells us that they have to get this right. Whatever that means. Anyway, I know I'll be back next week and every week keeping alive my hopes that Crystal and Ken meet their end in this game. 'Til next Thursday, take care!
