Okay, I'll put this message into two parts, so that shakes can read the first part and ignore the second part.
The previews from last week had us believing that a) the mission failed, b) Whitlow was a goner, and c) that Wolf was coming with her. In that a) the mission succeeded, b) Whitlow won immunity, and c) Wolf survived, the producers did a wonderful job hiding the truth from us.
However, they OVERdid it in the show. All we saw was Wolf. Wolf in the jeep. Wolf schmoozing with Whitlow. Wolf being interviewed again. Wolf in his barracks. Wolf saying he didn't feel obligated to tell Morettiii that he (Wolf) voted for him (Moretti). (DUH!!!!)
I don't mind being surprised (see: Mitchell on Survivor, Colby voting out Keith on Survivor, Tina winning on Survivor, nobody picking Megan for the final date on Temptation Island, etc.), but to be so totally blindsided as this show does is not really much fun. Give us SOMETHING to look out for, to watch for, guys!
To my surprise, it looked like Morettiii was flagging badly on both the obstacle course and the mission. He seemed to be running out of steam.
These contestants have shown throughout the game that they are unable to play it effectively. They continued with this show. The mission succeeding, when the smart play would be to fail it? Voting to keep Wolf in the game when a) everyone was telling the camera how much they hated him and b) he's the biggest threat to win the gauntlet (this one is especially for Whitlow, what WAS she thinking Blu????).
Did these bozos (sorry, shakes) look plain stupid in the Ritz Carlton with all that camoflage and BDUs on? Er, guys, relax, kick your feet back, enjoy the evening. I bet Recruit Blu just loved when D.I. McSweeney came out from behind that curtain and started ripping those recruits! They almost fainted when they were told they weren't getting any supper, just their MREs.
P.S. MREs are not THAT bad, folks, and I say this from LOTS of experience.
*** shakes can stop reading now, oderwise he will just be irritated ***
I think showing up the producers for fixing the game is good spoilage, even if shakes doesn't want to read about it. So from here on out discusses that.
I should've said it in my vote message that whoever gets voted out is taking a member of the opposite gender. The producers clearly wanted a male/female finale. Nothing wrong with that except that the producers have manipulated the game to be even throughout and it has not played out naturally. So were we surprised that Moretti took Moretty? Nope. By rights, Moretti should've taken Wolf, who backstabbed the hell out of him. But, since Whitlow had immunity, there was only Moretty to take, and Moretti did indeed pick her.
Also, if you need further proof that this program is fixed/scripted, here is another piece: WHY does Moretti keep referring to Moretty as "Moretty with a 'y'"??? There's no need for HIM to do that! (Same for her when talking about him). Yes, you can say they have to talk in the 3d person, but I noticed on Dismissal Hill that Moretti kept saying "Moretty with a 'y'" when he clearly didn't need to. Some of you might read nothing into this, but to me it just smacked of scripting. You make your own judgement.
