Survivor: Kaoh Rong Episode 9

Irritated that they were being accused of forming an alliance, the women proceeded to do just that in Survivor: Kaoh Rong Episode 8 and joined together to eliminate Nick.

Scot has a plan to get even. Take away tools. His goal is to make people miserable. Jason is fully onboard with this. How unexpected to see the big bullies acting like big bullies. It’s not as if they can rely on their minds to come up with a way back into the game. Tai at least is above this.

The women figure out how to open a coconut without any tools. This makes Scot angry because it took them 20 minutes to outsmart him. So he dumps water on the fire, which they then rebuild.

For the reward challenge, they will work together to separate themselves from being tied together, then toss some bags to knock over targets. Reward is Chinese food. Joe volunteers to sit out. Tai, Jason, and Scot form their own team, and Julia offers to join them. As the odd man out, Joe votes for the girls to win, so he will either join them if they win or get nothing, a personal decision but perhaps not a smart one. The women fall behind on the rope task, and they never catch up.

Julia’s choice at the challenge is not lost on anyone. She may not have necessarily flipped, but she’s weighing her options. Seeing this, the other girls have a new target in mind.

Not to be outdone, that night Tai puts out the fire, too. He doesn’t get any blame for it, though. The women just assume it was Scot. After that, Debbie flat out refuses to vote for Julia and wants Scot gone instead.

The immunity challenge requires them to stack blocks like dominoes, spacing them just right so they can hit a gong on the other side. As most people fall apart around her, Michele is going slow and steady, but her stack stops a couple shy of the target. Then Debbie unsuccessfully tries. So does Jason. Debbie again. On her first attempt, Julia wins immunity.

That pretty much forces their hands. Like it or not, they can’t get rid of Julia now.

Debbie proposes a split vote. Aubry is afraid because she is saying this plan in front of Julia, which if she flips would cause whoever the others want to go home. Of course, Julia reveals this plan to the other side.

Because Debbie keeps talking without apparently thinking, Cydney and Aubry discuss getting rid of her instead. Joe refuses. Ironically, what they were so upset about is that Debbie was telling Julia her plan. So they tell her theirs. I do not understand how you arrive at this conclusion. Either you trust Julia to know information, or you don’t.

At Tribal Council, Scot reveals that Tai has an idol, and then Jason reveals his. Once again, this is all news to Julia, who thinks she is playing both sides, though neither side actually wants her for anything more than a temporary vote.

Following the vote, Jason hands his idol to Tai.

With 4 votes, Debbie has been voted off the island. I’m not sure whether that whole idol song and dance helped decide anything or not.
