Survivor: Cook Islands
People You Like Want To See You Suffer

Hello, good people, and welcome back to the BOP Survivor Recap. Previously on Survivor, Candice proved to be a mutinous beyotch and her manservant Jonathan followed her to the Raro tribe. What ensued was an ass kicking of huge proportions as Yul and Ozzy flay out refused to lose either challenge. And before the emails get started, Sundra and Becky were there too, but let's face it; they spent most of one challenge rolling around in a barrel. Candice quickly fit in with her new tribe despite the traitorous move she put on Aitu. Jonathan, however, was viewed as a traitor and left on the outside. Ah...the power of the boobies. Jonathan's plan to work real hard around camp paid off for him as Raro decided to use his hard work for a little while longer and got rid of tribal malcontent Brad in what had to be the least suspenseful Tribal Council of the season.
This week, we've been promised that Candice and Adam get freaky and that a mysterious message in a bottle will turn the game upside down. Why do I get the feeling that the big twist is gonna suck? Anyway, without further ado:
We begin at Raro, and guess what? Jonathan's working. Jonathan talks about how much he regrets jumping tribes. He's a "wandering Jew without a tribe." Jenny is feeling pretty worried about Candice and Adam hooking up and that he'll leave their alliance. Now, if you'll excuse me while I puke. Adam is kissing all of Candice's faux injuries and I'm already more tired of them than I was of Romber in the All-Stars.
Over at Aitu, Ozzy's out fishing. And he's telling us about the hole his tribe is in and he's totally happy to be the underdog. Sundra comes back with Tree Mail, but it's not a note. It's a code. I could be wrong, but with Yul on this tribe this seemingly intellectual challenge should be in the bag.
Probst sighting! As the tribes get together, Jeff drops the bomb on Aitu that Brad became the first member of the jury. To quote Yul, "Whoa." Today's reward challenge will be a treasure hunt. There will be coordinates, compasses, treasure chests and nautical flags. The tribes will follow the coordinates and dig out treasure chests. Each chest will contain flags, and once they have all four chests, they'll take all the flags out and they'll spell victory. Of course, they only win if they put in the order of the code that was left in tree mail. Wanna know what they're playing for? They're playing for a chance to be taken away to a native feast with all the trimmings, including some sweet home brew.
Parvati, Nate and Rebecca sit out for Raro. As the challenge begins, Raro gets off on the wrong foot right off the bat. Yul and Sundra don't. As all the other challenges have gone, Aitu is back with all four chests before Raro gets back with number three. As Raro looks on in disbelief, Candice is moaning about going to Exile Island. Heh heh...you deserve it, you traitorous bitch. And with ease, Aitu comes out victorious again. And going to Exile Island, shocker...Candice.
