I thought it was the first really entertaining episode of the season, even if most of the entertainment was derived from terrible, daft gameplay.
I will never understand why contestants like Erika start playing hard when there is absolutely no need for it! She decided to target Sydney because she was…bored? Girl, be bored! It’s a million fucking dollars! All she had to do this week was sit around and win another challenge but instead…
…she inspired her own tribe to throw a challenge. It’s like…the stupidity was infectious this week. Deshawn and Danny’s plot was completely illogical. Like, keep what you know about Erika and use it against her when it suits you. Don’t rush headlong into an unnecessary tribal. Are they really that confident of their grip on the game?
Cocksucker of the week has to go to J.D though. I was waiting for a twist because his unthinking submission to Shan seemed…too easy? Like who trusts like that on fucking Survivor?! Happy to see him go - bad at gameplay, bad at challenges, bad at picking previous contestants to model himself on - but I can’t help wondering if it would have served Shan better to get rid of Genie and keep J.D in her pocket? I just hope she has some kind of security heading into the merge/a tribe switch.
