Tribal Council really brings the crazy. We’re not talking about a lot of people, either. If you’ve seen it, you know what we mean. Wendy, who said earlier she didn’t think she was nervous, melts down as she becomes more and more convinced she may be the person going home. She becomes extremely defensive and combative, and when Probst tells them to go vote, she asks if she can have the floor for a moment. (This moment will feel like it lasts a million years.)
“I would also like to tell the group I think there’s a lot that I can bring through my strength, my leadership, heh. I could be very friendly, very honest, very funny, fun to be with, strong-willed, strong physically. People like to be my friend. People like to be with me. They trust me all the time. Trust is important. And…I don’t have any blisters on my feet, so that’s an asset. That will help. Just a little I thing I’d point out. I think that’s about it.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this person’s vote cancels out yours.
Do we even have to tell you who is voted out here? She’s so crazy that the person who was bound and determined to vote for Jimmy Johnson flips. She receives every vote except her own.
“Initially, the decision was tough, but after hearing you speak tonight, with your excuses, it became easy. Wendy Jo, you gotta go.” --Tyrone
Appearances can be deceiving after one episode, but we think it’s going to take a lot of producer meddling to keep these two sides balanced. Jimmy Johnson is already looking tired and a bit sick. Dan (who we haven’t even mentioned yet) is limping. The women on the team seemed unable to even ponder a solution to the puzzle. On the other hand, from the previews, the La Flor tribe seems fairly volatile and likely to fight amongst themselves at camp.
Next week promises one of the weirdest things we’ve seen. Holly, the swim coach, is filling Dan’s shoes with sand and throwing them in the water to exact some sort of revenge. That will learn him. At La Flor, NiOnka and Fabio are getting into it. Which blowup will be the bigger deal? Tune in next week to find out. Or read or recap. Either one works. But you should really read our recap.
