Krashing Down ‘Survivor One World’ Episode #9

Episode 9: “Go Out With a Bang”

Boy oh boy episode nine of Survivor One World made me want to blow a gasket!  How could the men have screwed up this badly?  They made so many million dollar mistakes in this game, and it reiterates my point on how huge numbers are.

You Play To Win The Game

After last week we seen Kim maneuver her way into disbanding Michael.  Following the departure of Michael it left Jay, Troyzan, Leif, and Tarzan left for the males.  Leif and Tarzan have no credibility in this game and are just people to take to the end.  Therefore you would THINK Jay would be like, “wow I’m the next to go.”  There was a small reward challenge in watch Tarzan basically won for his group.  Following the reward challenge the ball really got rolling.

Kim, the mastermind of this game, got her troops of girls together to plot a hit on Jay or Troyzan.  Basically it was one of those, “whoever doesn’t win immunity” situations.  With a hidden immunity idol still in play they had to be careful.  Chelsea felt very reserved making this vote, not wanting to be a liar.  If big moves hurt you, why did you sign up for this game Chelsea?  She is a prime example of how you can make it far in this game by aligning with the right people and doing nothing.  So we get to the immunity challenge and it is an endurance standing competition.  In true Survivor fashion Jeff had plenty of food items to lure the castaways down.  Slowly but surely all the girls were dropping out of the challenge for food.  With the girls having numbers and feeling confident, you’d think Jay HAS to win this.  Nope he jumps down, “trusting his girl alliance” for some chicken.  You seriously just gave up a million dollars for chicken?  Jay wins the idiot award for this season of Survivor.

Chelsea ends up winning the challenge as a way to prove herself worthy.  I suppose, every dog has its day.  I’m still not sold on her as a legit player.  The girls get together and decide the votes need to be split just in case an idol is played.  Troyzan and Jay should know that this is most likely happening and be ready.  Luckily for Troyzan he has an idol and is ready to play it.  Troyzan, a heady player, warns Jay that this is happening and he will play an idol tonight.  What does Jay do?  He IMMEDIATELY runs to Kim like she’s his mommy and tells her.  Really dude?  Really… They voted off Jonas, a likeable guy.  They voted off Michael a strong AND likeable guy.  So no way they will vote out you right?  This episode made me want to punch a hole in the wall.

An Uphill Battle

With Jay tipping off the girls, any play Troyzan had was defeated.  He wanted to rally people to vote for Kim but just didn’t have votes or time.  Five votes went to Jay instead of splitting it ensuring his exit.  They also snuffed an immunity idol as Troyzan played it.  The men sure have squandered everything in this game.  I take it back to win they decided to give up immunity and vote Bill off.  They were willing to sacrifice numbers, and essentially willing to give up a million dollars.  One man stands a chance to win this game, in the name of Troyzan.  He has to start searching for an immunity idol ASAP, assuming there is a new one.  He also has to keep winning immunity.  I think he can put a run together, and I hope he swings the game.  Kim’s reign may also be short lived.  I believe Sabrina is smart enough to know she has to axe Kim at some point in order to make the big move to win this game.  Next episode it’s Troyzan vs. everyone!  Can’t wait to see if he can pull a Fabio win streak from a few seasons back.

Feel Good Video of the Year: Caine’s Arcade

This is one of the most inspiring videos I’ve seen on the internet.  It’s about a little boy (Caine) who loves arcades.  He loves them so much that he built several games out of cardboard boxes at his dads auto parts store.  The games range from basketball to the claw machine.  As cleverly done as this was, it did not attract many customers.  That was until one guy stopped by and fell in love with Caine’s Arcade.  Through the power of a good heart, Facebook, and YouTube, Caine’s Arcade is gaining a lot of pub.  It always amazes me what one person who cares, is capable of doing.  Be sure to watch this video below!

Krashing Down ‘Survivor One World’ Episode #8

Episode 8: “Just Annihilate Them”

Episode eight was a swing episode for this season of Survivor.  Lines were drawn, enemies were made, and a lot of jury votes were probably lost.  Finding a medium for when to be aggressive and not to is a big topic of discussion for today.

Divisions Within Your Unit

I always say my strategy to win Survivor is to be in the middle of a three way alliance.  You want one person who appears to be more of a threat above you calling shots, and a loafer below you who doesn’t do much.  Eventually you can run the game.  However the game consists of making good moves within the 18 castaways you work with.  Troyzan, Michael, and Jay appeared to be a powerful trio.  Match them with the Salani girls and they had an all star lineup to go to the end.  The problem with this thinking is that Kim and Sabrina are very heady players.  The guys voted out another guy, giving the Salani girls numbers in two places.  Kim now appears to be the ring leader of this show.

The reward challenge was a fun slip n’ slide puzzle challenge.  The team of Leif, Michael, Christina, Kim, and Sabrina won a food reward.  Back at camp Troyzan and Jay seemed to be convinced it was Christina going home.  But any Survivor guru would tell you that’s a wasted vote.  Right after the merge is a PERFECT time to eliminate threatening players.  Luckily for Jay he won immunity sparing him any talk of being voted out.

Kim and her posse of females decided it was a good time to make their move in the game.  With Chelsea, Sabrina, and Kat closely following her side they have power.  Kim orchestrated a move to eliminate Michael.  By doing this she wanted to get Jay and Troyzan on her side by saying Michael is trying to get Troyzan out.  Troyzan went for the oldest trick in the book and believe her.  Why he would believe any power player like her is beyond me?  With eleven people, it went two votes Tarzan, two votes Christina, and seven votes to Michael.  Troyzan and Jay both decided to jump ship on the cause.  The two have shown they are afraid to make a move, and are willing to settle.

Risky Plays

Kim has been able to play multiple people, claim an immunity idol, and just about solidify herself a place at the end.  However with all the numbers on her side, people know who calls the shots.  Kim’s chances of winning this game will be minimal.  I could already say that she does not have Jonas’s or Michael’s vote.  I would also bet she won’t have Troyzan’s or Jay’s if the time comes.  By Kim calling all the shots she allows Sabrina to continue to be my pick to win this game.  Regardless Kim still orchestrated a hit on a strong male, and has a lot of people backing her.  There is only one prayer the guys may have right now.  Troyzan’s hidden immunity idol could be played to their benefit.  if Troyzan can figure out which guy is going home next he can give the idol to them.  Jay and Troyzan have to act like they are on board (if it’s not one of them).  They then rally all the guys together to use the idol as a team and eliminate Kim.  Troyzan and Jay have a decent shot to do damage in this game if they are willing to take risks.  They haven’t done so, so far and their time is running out.  It’s now or never guys!  As for Leif and Tarzan?  They are just pawns.  I’ll reluctantly give Kim player of the week this week.  She did a good job of rallying her troops, but she has made it obvious who’s running the game.  One of the girls may waiver soon, with Alicia and Kat being wild cards.  I hope to see some immunity idols played this coming week!  Till next time.
