Survivor: One World Recap
Just Annihilate Them

There is a consensus among the women that girls vs. boys should definitely be in play. To further their cause, Kim says that she will approach Troyzan and tell him that Michael has started suggesting that Troyzan should be the next person voted out. There’s no truth to this statement, but it might play into some of Troyzan’s insecurities.
Back at camp, the losers are discussing who should be next to go, and although Troyzan and Jay think Christina is the best option, they are quickly shot down by Kat, who points out that Christina is no threat, and that Michael should be the next target. Needless to say, this alarms Jay some, as he’s realized that the women’s numbers advantage has become a problem. He totally recognizes that the situation is precarious for both him and his penis-y friends, and he even tries to point out to Troyzan that they should be concerned.
Jay’s problem throughout this season of Survivor has been the fact that he can totally see what’s coming, but he can’t rally anyone around him to do anything about it. He’s always aligned with the worst possible set of teammates because he just doesn’t have any better options.
You’ll never guess what the winning group brings the losing group. Mountain Dew! No, wait. It’s a lesser beverage. And we’re tired of talking about it.
And now it’s that time in Survivor when Tarzan annoys the crap out of everyone. In order to guarantee he makes the final vote, he has developed the Philip tactic of alienating everyone. This time, he strips a support piece of their shelter to use as firewood. When challenged, he denies having done so, which irks Chelsea to no end. There seems to be a rift between the power alliance. Kim, Sabrina and Kat feel like he’s useful and almost surely believe he’s beatable at a final tribal council. Chelsea, on the other hand, wants him gone yesterday. Unfortunately, her voice just isn’t being heard within that core group of women.
“It seems that Chelsea has been sort of, uh, subliminally harassing me.” – Tarzan
Some medical school is denying they gave him a degree. He’s too weird for Nip/Tuck.
Tarzan approaches Chelsea, and says, “I sense an aggravation with me. And I don’t know if it’s because you’ve had surgery, and I’m a plastic surgeon, and you don’t like your plastic surgeon, or something. But you’ve been negative towards me since I’ve come into contact with you.”
“I can’t believe he’s talking about my boob job.” --Chelsea
Unfortunately, despite the fact that she can’t stand him for non-boob related reasons, she sees him as no threat and everybody else wants him as a patsy at the final vote.
Kim goes and works some voodoo on Troyzan, telling him that Michael has suggested that Troy should be next to go. She’s feeding his long-standing insecurities that have existed from the first day in the game, and she does so masterfully. Troyzan gets very upset and talks about how much he hates Mike and thinks he’s a lazy idiot. Thus, the seeds have been planted, and even though the story is fabricated, Kim has done a remarkable job of finding Troyzan’s weak spot and subtly attacked it.
