The working title to S26 was “Hardcore Fans (who think Survivor premiered in 2008) and
Semi-recognizable Favorites of the last 5 years.
Welcome to the Caramoan Express everyone! Our host (now free from the taint of daytime talk show hell) Jiffy!
Looking a little worse for wear too.
Really we're here to review and bash the goings on, I'm running late already (sorry kircon) so let's get to it.
Opening with a space shuttle shot of the tropical and tasty Macaroon Islands where we zoom down to get a look at the Goatas, the future cast of Fans vs Favorites III as they cruise into Port Jiffy on “Vincent”, named after the painter who chopped off his ear or the dog on Lost. What? No jump out of the boat grabbing coconuts and chickens fun swim? How disappointing.
Just to show the Nufans who is important and who isn't, the Favorites arrive like the ratings gold they are in a pair of luxury whirlybirds, complete with staff and publicists. Much fan fare ensues while Jiffy jogs the memory of the Nufans and the viewers that haven't changed the channel to Duck Dynasty already.
The Flavor-Faves are welcomed with oohs & ahhs from the adoring Nufans. Actually I think most of us would have felt our odds for that million went way up after seeing the Nufavorites. Yay! No competition woot!
Jiffy wastes no time in getting right to the business of Survivor (lest we switch over to Duck Dynasty again) and barks out that everyone take off your clothes we're going to play a little game for flint & beans.
The Reward Challenge of ring toss is a go and the only thing I remember is Malcolm forgetting he lost a little weight over the summer and losing his suit. Blur, how disappointing. The Nufavorites take the Nufans to school and get their reward. Off to their boats and their little slices of paradise.
At the Goata camp
says he's the prettiest.
notes that there are 10 people there.
races to the conclusion that they're really there.
and get into it over fire and housing.
At the Flavor-Fave camp
thinks she's on dinosaur island,
singlehandedly won beans & flint and is too a favorite.
thinks he's at Iwo Jima with his father.
annoys us greatly. : Spoiler alert: Firstcesca eats rocks.
blows the season cliffhanger and announces that
is pregnant for the love of Jiffy!
I would have thought it was
and Reynold was the baby daddy.
You know the rest they plot, strategize and tattle on each other. How disappointing!
Immunity Challenge The Great Wall of Survivor:
Race, climb, toss crates, gather the sand bags and toss them into targets. Will Malcolm score big or lose his shorts. Will the Fans prevail. Actually they all do pretty well so I'll be nice and leave the rest alone. The Fans prevail on some pretty deadly bag tossing by Reynold.
I just can't follow the logic and alliances and conversations it appears that Phil & Fran are in terrible Danger of going home First(cesca). Even the monkey having a nosh thinks so. Then Brandon has a bout of his “girls are evil” and targets Andrea because she threatens him.
Nothing changes and I'm betting Lil Hantz's fuze is lit and he's not long for the Caramoan Islands.
Players of the week says Sprint: Erik – Malcolm – Reynold. How disappointing...
On to Babble Council
Jiffy calls on Lil Hantz who tells us that “Nobody's going to get done like they did the last time”. Words of wizdumb from the oracle of Texas. Jiffy just loves the irony and moves on to Firstcesca to address her and Phillip's Redmption Island history. Sniff-sniff I smell toast burning. Jiffy pulls the plug on TC and we get to the vote.
Yes Firstcesca, someone is out to get you, it's your tribe. Good bye and into the history books you go.
Ta ta my friends and thank you for spending some time with me.
