Survivor Cambodia RECAP: “Not an alliance, a voting block”

I haven’t posted about Survivor the last few weeks, but now I’m back to stay right until we have crowned a winner. While the pre-merge was so So (Kim), the early merge has been a success with more votes than ever being able to be used at ones advantage.

Unfortunately for Kass, at the final 13 no one was ready to make a move yet, and as a result her torch was snuffed. People like Jeremy, Keith, and Spencer were extremely lucky that the group didn’t start taking out big targets straight away. If this season had merged at 11 or 10, things would of been differently. Even being at 11 now why is Kimmi so hell bent on getting the three girls (three amigas or witches coven, whatever you prefer) out of the game? Does she realise she can’t win sitting next to Jeremy at the final tribal. He’s a nice guy who loves his wife, and everyone knows that. He isn’t going to leave a bad taste in people’s mouth after voting them out (aka Russell Hantz), so why let him stay in the game. The fact that he has two idols makes it even worse, but she has no way of knowing this.

Speaking of his two idols, let’s quickly talk about Jeremy’s edit. It’s just way to over the top. Without a doubt he is playing a good game, but he won’t be able to convince people to take him to the end. Jeremy’s edit reminds me of Tyson in Blood Vs Water, in this situation Tyson won, but thats only because people aligned with him, Gervase and Monica, knew that they would have even less of a shot going with anyone else. That isn’t the case in Cambodia. Stephen doesn’t want to have a repeat of his first season where he can’t get rid of “golden boy” JT, due to his immunity wins from the final 5 onwards. Once Stephen reaches his goal of sending out Joe, he will turn his attention onto his pal Jeremy, and he won’t wait until the final 5 to do so.

Stephen’s edit is also tricky. It’s been all over the place all season, that a win for him would be extraordinary. It’s possible, and I would love it, but it would be crazy. I sense that from what we are being shown of Kelley Wentworth that she has a good shot of being there at the end and winning.

At the same there are still big players left like Tasha, Spencer, and Ciera that could shake up the game and send it into a new direction.

I’m A Celeb AU RECAP – Episode 6 & 7

In the sixth installment of I’m A Celeb…Chrissie and Maureen worked harder that Laura did in the tucker trail (two out of ten stars), only to get ten pieces of chocolate, and in a shock exit Leisel Jones was the first two leave the jungle.

The next episode Joel and Lauren aren’t too happy that Leisel had to go over some less worth contestants *cough* Laura *cough*

Speaking off Laura, she knows she’s next, and Joel doesn’t even try to hard to convince her otherwise.

Today is Barry’s Birthday which is exciting for the celeb’s when they have nothing else to look forward to. they probably care more about the ice-cream cake then him.

And then we are introduced to our intruders. Tim and Anna for the first Australian Bachelor (not the one with Blake the flake), who do an amazing job to get eleven stars for the group. When the arrive, they don’t get the reception I was expecting, a few cold shoulders were given about the being a pair, but knowing they would be eating well because of them smoothed things over.
