Ryan remains one of the stars of the show with 3 confessionals. He lost the challenge but has to stick to his great skill set of a great social game. Everyone has failure, just don't want it to be getting voted out. Then, he has one about being in the middle....the good news is he is in a position where they want to work with him, needs to tread lightly not to mess it up. Then, he gets the last confessional before TC...he's in the swing vote position, some one will hate him when it's over, but he has to do what's best to advance his game.
Ali also had 3 confessionals, and she set up how much she trusted Ryan...Ryan didn't do well in the challenge but I have to have his back, she's been with him the entire game, her trust is there. Then, the hustlers were a group of losers, but now she can start to build these personal relationships to further her game. Hopefully, with the bond with Roark, at the merge, she take her and then she will have numbers. Finally, she notes the main reason to get Chrissy out is that she didn't do well in the challenge, so she wants her out next.
Roark had 3 confessionals, in her boot episode. She's the lone healer, wants to dev'p trust with them, pre-going to water hole with Ali. It's good to receive some support from Ali, as she can give her numbers at the merge. Next, Chrissy struggled in the challenge today so she needs to go. Last, They are going to Tribal and this is the very first day that Chrissy chooses to talk to her...in her head, really? Chrissy needs to go.
Chrissy is steady with 2 confessionals: First one: I do not feel safe going into tribal, I am having a hard time trusting any one but I think that I am going to have to go there in order to move forward in this game. ...You always are nervous in this game and I feel if I am gonna play, I want to play big. Then, see Chrissy and Roark go off to talk together. Next confessional, Chrissy spins her plan: I wanted to work with Roark going forward but I canít believe a word she says. And, I wish that I could stop and say to her, you are not the smartest person here , but I donít want to ruin my game.
So, my plan is to create this imaginary girls alliance. If there is a girls alliance than clearly I would not be the one voted out, see JP chopping a coconut...and JP might think that he was the next to go, see a spider.... Chrissy's confessionals are interrupted by us seeing her in action....
Ashley also had 2 confessionals: At TC, when J decided to play the idol for himself, my entire face just dropped. Everythining in my whole world just stopped. I wouldnít say that I was like 100% team Alan, but he was the one hero on my tribe...Joe made himself a target on purpose, so he tricked us all! It was a scary one, heís getting crazier and crazier. But, right now, itís 2 vs. 2, so who knows whatís going to happen? see Joe bending over the shelter. Her next confessional was after the TC, she was nervous but now she has Devon, they are in this together.
Seven people had 1 confessional:
Jessica gets back to baseline with 1 confessional...When I first got here I felt that Cole, Mike and I were in control....see Cole dipping his fingers into the peanut butter....but, after seeing Cole tell secrets, I do believe that Mike is paranoid about Cole as a number. On the flip side of that, Mike can keep a secret. So, right now, it would be a benefit to my game to for more of a bond with Mike.
Lauren's confessional is narrational about the pig, Cole. He's gross, he's licking his fingers and scratching his crotch, others see it too.
Desi's is narrational as well...After winning the RC, they got the sweetest reward, first they were divided but now t's time to come together as a team.
Ben has the PTSD confessional....it's a Hell that they live with, his wife and kids saved him and now he's playing to show them all that the future will save you, the past will eat you alive.
Joe settles down and rehashes his play...I completely blindsided this entire tribe with the idol. I just wanted them to throw the votes to me so I had to play the nervous route, I didnít want anyone thinking I was over-confident. You know, I had the idol, I put my hands up, my head down, it was all an act. I had the idol, Iím not going home.
Devon's confessional was the reward was great but what's best for my game is getting rid of Joe.
MIke's confessional was about finding the idol, his kids will be proud and now he's trusting Jessica and he's okay with that.
This week a lot of people settle down.
Jessica has finished one story arc and is moving in a different direction with Mike. Good for her. Mike finds an idol and has formed a bond with Jessica, good for him.
Lauren and Desi are safe and narrating events. Devon drops down to 1, he's settled down, he's doing very well for his tribe in challenges.
OTOH, Ali and Ryan mirror each other this week, and last. They both begin a new story arc, will if be the final one for one of them? Joe dips down to one, and we heard how Devon wants him out. Ashley has 2 confessionals, as she did last week, is this her final story arc? Cole was consistent and now he's appearing negatively, and he falls below the radar and next week we see him pass out. JP, still under the radar.
Safe: Ryan, Jessica, Lauren, Ben, Chrissy, Devon, Mike.
At slight risk: Desi, she went from 3 to 1, but she's seen as a very strong competitor in challenges, and an asset.
At risk: Ali, she went from 1 to 3, and Ryan was her only ally, now Ryan has chosen Chrissy over her. If they go to TC, she could be toast.
Joe: He went from 3 to 1, and we heard that Devon wants him gone, and wants to get Desi with them.
Ashley: This could be her final arc, if Devon decides Desi won't budge, then he may leave Ashley in the dust.
Cole: He's a pig and they are noticing, and he's blabbed every secret. He passes out in the next episode, and Jessica isn't ready to play this game without him...misdirection or foreshadowing?
JP: If Ryan fights for both his allies and insists on JP....
