and before getting into the presence of the bootee being in press images a majority of the time, we move to the Immunity Challenge. The Angry Chair.
With a little linked help...
First, the Outline of the Challenge. Which has Chris, Ken and David for GenX and Michelle, Figgy and Michaela for Millenials, being hoisted into the air upon a chair, to get a series of numbered bags.
Here's a Closer Inspection of Number Placement
Then reassemble the lettered plaques within the bags into a phrase of five words in length.
Here's a Closer Inspection of Available Letters
And some photos (of dreamteamers) to help you out, if you want to figure it out before the castaways do.
28 Letters Visible: A B D EEEE F G HH I LL MM NN OOO R SSS TT Y _ _
From the looks of the Press Images and Caps at the IC it's clear, to me, that GenX takes a lead at the end of the hoisting...
Notice the ladies peering over at GenX's progress...
Then Ken puts up barriers...
But ultimately GenX suffers some setbacks that MAY result in Millenials figuring out the phrase before GenX do.
Besides, the VO mentions that GenX is...
and the Millenials...
and that all you really need to succeed are the...
And even though the all-powerful tatas are revealed in the RC, their power will appear at the IC.
The old guys will lose out to the young gals, sending GenX BACK to Tribal Council.
Now comes the difficult part. And perhaps the moment every week where I should just leave well enough alone and stop typing.
But I can't.
Back at GenX, the rift between the underdogs, the witches and the bigguys will become even more convuluted.
Bret and Chris are feeling revengeful.
Lucy has assumed the tyrant position.
Cici is STILL a challenge deficit.
David has an idol that NO ONE (other than Ken and Cici) know about.
Jessica has a legacy she is desperate to hold on to.
Add to all of this, the title for NEXT week...
"Idol Search Party"
It seems to be leading to the illusion that one of the tribes will become idol focused.
Is it because David uses his idol?
My thought is the plots for revenge are somewhat misdirection.
Chris and Brett may be mad at the ladies, but it's in the ladies best interest to try and mend those alliance ties. Lucy is probably talking David and Ken into dumping Cici this round, maybe with the promise that next round they'll dump Chris or Brett.
Will this backfire on Lucy?
But what I keep leaning back on is the simple statistic that states one of the pictured castaways will be the bootee. Leaving my choices as: Chris, David or Jessica.
Both Chris and David are being shoved down our throats. David because he actually is near the epicenter of the weekly action, Chris because he seems to be the favored member of Gen X, to the producers. And with an idol and many other targets, I see them both as VERY safe.
Whereas, Jessica is the only other castmember seen in @Camp Press Images.
... will have to pass on her legacy.
Kinda like the torch hand off about to take place...
Yup, I can't do next week's SOTS. Is anybody up for the task?
It's totally phun, I promise.
And you can be wrong and everyone will still focus on your good points.
bullet-list of tribe's best guesses:
* RC Winners: Gen X
* IC Winners: Millenials
* TC: Gen X
* Vote Spread:
* Idol Use: Yes
