Survivor: Africa Episode 7

They had to be bit in the butt with the fact that Lindsey had votes against her, but Lex, Tom, and Kelly finally got a clue and voted her out in Survivor: Africa Episode 6, done in by a combination of big mouths from Frank and Brandon.

As happy as Frank probably is that Lindsey is gone, Brandon is, likewise, celebrating. He couldn’t take her any more. Not that this whole being outnumbered 3-2 thing works to his advantage. His plan is to distance himself from Kim P since one of them has to be the first to go.

Clarence goes to do his business now that he’s done digesting that chicken from the night before. Up comes a herd of elephants. Getting trampled by them now would be a bad way to die, but they leave him in peace. He might consider being more careful next time.

The question in the minds of Boran is whether it’s merger day, like they originally assumed. Merging with two chickens and a rooster left. What a waste if they can’t take them with them.

Brandon is looking forward to the merge and an individual game. He pretty much just hates his tribe.

Speaking of hating people on the tribe, Kelly has decided that she wants to vote out Lex because he’s trying too hard to win and is a totally weird person. But she can’t because it’s not a good time. What a different game it would have made for if she did flip sides in the last vote.

When they arrive at the challenge, they’re told it’s the merger. They are without name, but their new color is green. They just need one camp to live at, so everybody will return to Boran.

The immunity challenge is to stand on a log with one arm raised and connected to a rope connected to a bucket. Last one dry wins. Kelly is the first one out at 14 minutes, and Kim J is right behind her. They use this time to talk. They’re surprised by how much and how willingly Frank and Teresa gave away information. By the way, Frank hates women and doesn’t want a woman to win, so it’d probably be best to not have him on the jury. Brandon is out at 18 minutes. Kim J follows at 36 minutes and then Big Tom at 44 minutes. Frank is out at 55 minutes, and the others poorly try to hide their excitement. At 1 hour and 14 minutes, Teresa begins singing Tomorrow from Annie (badly), as the tough guys remaining show signs of pain. An hour later, they’re all still standing, though. Can Jeff tempt them with a burger? Nobody interested, so the eliminated players get it. At 2 hours 48 minutes, Ethan asks Clarence if he’d step down for a whole pizza. At 3 hours 10 minutes, Probst returns. Yeah, it’s pizza, but still no takers. The eliminated players again get themselves a meal. 8 minutes later, Lex is out, with no food to show for it. Ethan drops at 3 hours 38 minutes. That leaves Clarence up against Teresa. Nobody wants to see Clarence win. He’d like to make a deal, but she’s not willing because she’s too outnumbered. At 4 and a half hours, Probst offers some chicken, salad, corn on the cob, rice, beer, and Mountain Dew. Clarence knows they want him gone, too. He looks over to his tribe for some assurance about either himself or Teresa. They don’t care. At 6 hours, he offers rock, paper, scissors again. Paper covers rock. Teresa wins immunity.

Everybody’s happy to return to camp and have a feast. Frank doesn’t want to participate. He goes off on his own and gathers wood but does return eventually without any great deal of enthusiasm (and in a hurry to go off and get more wood). Kelly would like for him to take some prescription drugs to counteract his antisocial nature. Perhaps also something to cure himself of believing he’s an elephant.

Maji is water, moto is fire, so they combine them together to form a tribe name of Moto Maji. They all agree on the name, although nobody can seem to remember it the next day.

Now that that’s out of the way, who’s the target? According to Lex, it’s Clarence. Lex reveals to him that this is the plan. In Lex’s mind, revealing this to him at the last possible minute after keeping it from him all day makes him the ethical player. Kelly likes Clarence now, but she doesn’t like either Lex or Frank. Neither Kim J nor Big Tom are enthusiastic about getting rid of one of their own when there are still three members on the other tribe, but they’re not putting up much of a fight to go against it. Teresa will honor her word to not vote for Clarence.
