Survivor: Nicaragua Episode 4

The old tribe voted out their leader in Survivor: Nicaragua Episode 3, sending Jimmy Johnson packing.

Jimmy T considers this time to celebrate, and hence annoy his fellow castaways with his loudness.

They find the water and mud washing up on them, as the beach proceeds to disappear following the rains.

NaOnka and Brenda still haven’t figured out that hidden immunity idol clue. After thinking about it overnight, Brenda has decided that it’s probably near treemail. Their combined lack of having a clue does not help, but they ultimately do find the idol. NaOnka wants to make one thing clear. Although Brenda is the reason they have the idol, NaOnka considers it hers and nobody else’s.

Alina and Kelly B hope to find the idol as well. Too late for that. NaOnka uses this as an opportunity to tell Kelly B she doesn’t like her. Yeah, this is news. This chick doesn’t like anybody. For sure, Kelly B won’t vote for her if she makes it on the jury, and by the way, she should keep her leg away from the fire.

Jimmy T has been nominated as Espada’s leader, but for all his talk, he does not want the leadership role. Now Jimmy T doesn’t like Marty either. Seems the only thing they had going was their dislike/jealousy for Jimmy J. Marty has decided that Jimmy T is delusional and paranoid.

For today’s challenge, one person will be the caller. The rest of the tribe will be blindfolded and paired up, and they will be directed to gather up 10 paired items, then one pair will be guided to get a set of keys to unlock a chest. The winning tribe will get immunity and a choice between a bunch of items, such as a tool kit, tarp, rope, knives, or a complete fishing kit. La Flor uses the medallion of power. Daniel sits out for Espada. The Kellys sit out for La Flor. Brenda and Tyrone are the callers. La Flor starts with 2 of the 10 items already collected, or about 18% of the way done. Not the most advantageous of times to use the power. The younger tribe quickly jumps up 5-0. I don’t think we even need to wait for this to finish. With a huge advantage that doesn’t fade throuhgout, La Flor wins immunity and reward. They choose their three reward items: the fishing gear, tarp, and cooking supplies.

When they get back to camp, Jimmy T asks for an opportunity to contribute more. So is there something he could have done to change the outcome? Probably not. Somebody stop this guy from running his mouth already.

Chase spots the clue, hides it, and stashes it. He, too, shares it with Brenda. Unlike the two chicks who took overnight to figure it out, he immediately knows where it is. But wait. No need to bother looking… NaOnka already has the idol. At least Brenda doesn’t send him on a wild goose chase, hoping to prove their trust to each other.

Marty chooses to eat a couple of sea urchins, rather than contributing to the community pot. Jimmy T calls him out for doing this. Marty considers this the way to be sent home. Ironically, eating food that should be shared has historically been far more fatal. It’s personal for Marty. He doesn’t want to get rid of the weak link. Rather, he wants to get rid of this guy who he just doesn’t like.

On the other side of the argument, Dan’s still limping, which again makes him a target, particularly of Jimmy J’s allies. How much more can they take of him sitting out every challenge?

Jimmy T is starting to realize that him continuing to open his mouth is probably not making him any friends. Nonetheless, he will keep doing so. After they focus on this at tribal council, he says he’s going to be a worker bee. So no more whining about how he wants to be the leader then?

The old people believe they could have won without the disadvantage from the power. Probst tells them to get real.

With Marty firmly in control of the tribe and making it personal, Jimmy T has been voted off the island. Can’t say I’ll miss him, but I’m not real impressed with Marty either.
