Survivor: Borneo Episode 8

Following the merger, the alliance of four proved they had control of the game when they voted out Gretchen, while every other person in the tribe voted for every other person in the tribe in Survivor: Borneo Episode 7.

Is Jenna being paranoid, or was the Tagi tribe smarter than the incredibly dumb Pagong tribe?

Rudy wanted to get rid of Gretchen because he felt she was going to be their next leader. Sean doesn’t like that people are playing the game. Greg doesn’t either. As for Gervase, he won’t believe there’s an alliance until it happens again and they’re completely outnumbered.

Jenna’s plan is to bond with the women, like she did over on Pagong. Sue likes Jenna better than she thought she would. She doesn’t drive her at all crazy. However, she has no plan to turn on her alliance and form an all woman alliance.

They only have two days worth of rice at the rate they’re eating. Might be time to start rationing. Regardless, Rich is bringing back a shark for them to eat. He’s wondering who voted for him. They all raise their hands. He thinks it may have been Greg, but the correct answer is Colleen.

Jenna sees Greg as devious. Is he trying to ally with the other side? Speaking of devious, he’s getting ready to snap Colleen’s neck. Since Rich finds Greg attractive, Greg plans to use that to his advantage.

Reward sounds like it’s going to be something from home. Everybody knows Jenna wants this the most. They get to practice with some bows and arrows the day before the challenge. When Jeff arrives, he brings a TV with him. He will show short clips of videos from home, and the winner will get to see the whole thing. There’s a but coming. The other videos have all arrived, but Jenna doesn’t get one. Her family didn’t return the video. If she wins the challenge, she will be allowed to make a tape to send to her family, which is part of the reward, in addition to seeing the entire video. Greg shoots first. Jenna misses his mark. Rudy misses everything. Sean follows suit but at least gets in the right neighborhood. Sue’s still behind Greg, as is Kelly. Colleen misses completely. Gervase hits the target but not close enough. Hatch has the last shot, but it’s not close enough, which the others seem to indicate was on purpose. Greg wins reward. The others watch the video with him, while Jenna practices hitting the bullseye.

When they return to camp, it’s looking like Jenna may be wanting to leave. Gervase views her as a threat because he’s a parent, a role she may well be playing better than he can. Gervase’s strategy remains to do nothing.

The immunity challenge is a rope course designed to be confusing. They must be attached to the rope at all times while trying to avoid dead ends. Gervase is off to an early lead. Jenna and Sean are behind him. Greg is lost. Gervase is still in the lead and first to station 5. This didn’t look too confusing. Gervase didn’t seem to have much trouble with the course at all, nor did the two people following him, and Gervase wins immunity.

The alliance still knows they’re not invincible. Their hope is that the rest of the players continue to be idiots.

At tribal, Jeff asks Colleen if she would do whatever it takes to win the money. No. That answer about sums up where their fate is heading.

All of Jenna’s tribemates voted against her, presumably due to her homesickness (although Greg says he did it because his ear infection is clearing up). Well, at least they’re working somewhat together now. With the assistance of the alphabetical vote, however, the alliance remains in control, as Greg has been voted off the island.
