Oh Kass, now you totally and completely screwed everyone, including yourself. But mostly, you screwed me by forcing me to be stuck with several more episodes of Tony and Trish. This totally sucks. Before Sarah leaves, Spencer does suggest that Kass now has a 0% chance of winning the game. Honestly, though, I don't think she cares. I think there were two motivations for a vote like this. The first is that it was personal. Kass wanted to be calling the shots and her tribe wasn't letting her. So she took her ball over to Solana.
The other motivation, I'll call it the "Malcolm motivation", is the desire to make a "big shocking move" for no reason other than the shock value at Tribal. Malcolm played two idols for other people because he couldn't resist how awesome it would be, even though it destroyed his game. Kass's motivation could have been the same here. Forget what it does for her game or for anyone else's game, everyone will be talking about #ChaosKass now.
While Kass completely screwed herself, for the many reasons I've listed above... Tasha is ultimately to blame for this. If she had stroked Kass' ego just a little bit instead of seeming to take Sarah's side, this vote could have been different. She didn't and now it seems as though she may pay the ultimate price. And by having to watch another several weeks of Trish, I'll be paying that price with her. Thanks, Tasha. Thanks, Kass. Thanks a lot. This sucks! Oh yeah...and that whole "Tony's comeuppance will be so sweet" thing from earlier? Dammit. DammitDammitDammit!
Next time on Survivor: Kass and Morgan seem to have words. Oddly enough, Kass seems surprised that people might be angry with her. Also, EVERYone is searching for hidden idols now and Woo breaks out some ninja skills! Make sure to check back here early next week for the Power Rankings, which I'll write through gritted teeth and then check out the recap later in the week. Same bat time, same bat channel. I would love to hear your thoughts about the show, the strategy and the recap. Just follow and Tweet me @vannestjc! ‘Til next week, take care!
