Survivor Micronesia: Lost Puppy Dog

Survivor Micronesia

When we last left , the Malakal tribe was having a hard time winning any of the Immunity Challenges, camp life at Airai was horrible, the Fans were getting picked off one-by-one and Ami kept confusing her fellow tribe mates (and the audience) with her constant waffling.  Let me assure you, not much changed this week.

After knocking off Tracy at the last Tribal Council, Erik – and surprisingly, Ozzy – were both feeling a bit unsettled.  Since he was the only Fan remaining at Malakal, the ice cream man figured he had a very short shelf life in the competition.  Meanwhile, Ozzy was feeling incredibly frustrated by the recent turn of events.  Since Tracy nastily called him the ‘leader’ of their group (a title he refused to accept), he knew that he might now have a large target on his back.

Survivor Micronesia: Like a Wide-Eyed Kid in the Candy Store!

Survivor Micronesia

On tonight’s episode of , the castaways were really starting to feel the effects of their long stay on the island.  After over two weeks in the game, the survivors were starting to grate on each other’s nerves.  The miserable weather was also taking a toll on their psyches.  Who was able to power through – and who just had to throw up their arms and quit?

Frustrated by the lack of eggs they were receiving, a hungry Tracy suggested killing off one of Malakal’s three resident chickens.  If they weren’t going to put out, she was going to cut them up.  Ozzy, knowing that he could always fish for more food, thought that this was a ridiculous idea.  The birds were still producing, just not as many as she would like.  Why would she get rid of a renewable source?  Ozzy’s bossiness, of course, frustrated underdog Tracy because he was acting like a “kingpin”.  Not only was he the retriever of the food, he was also the decision-maker on when they would eat it as well.

Survivor Micronesia: It Hit Everyone Pretty Hard!

Survivor Micronesia

Tonight’s episode of really gave us an idea of how the game can take a toll on competitors physically.  It also shone a light on the survivors’ true characters.  How badly did they want to win the million dollars?  What were their breaking points?  How fairly did they like to see their fellow challengers treated?

Although most of the Malakal tribal members were happy with Joel’s elimination, Erik was left stunned by the events at Tribal Council.  He finally realized that the Favorites were not ones to be trusted and knew that it was important to make a move soon.  Even though she was integral in the firefighter’s dismissal, Tracy was still bothered by her status in the game.  Keeping Chet around really didn’t help with the numbers; the Fans were still down 3 to 4.

This Week on TV (3/10-3/16)

The Real Housewives of New York City

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/10)
  • The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? (ABC, 8pm):  “Highlights from past seasons include segments catching up with past bachelors (Andrew Firestone and Aaron Buerge) and former contestants.”  So the whole point of the show is to say there is no point to this show.  Look at how successful it’s been!
  • Canterbury’s Law (FOX, 8pm):  Series premiere.  “Julianna Margulies stars as a maverick defense lawyer who plays by her own rules to help the falsely accused.”  I’m guessing will still be on long after this program goes off the air.
  • New Amsterdam (FOX, 9pm):  Regular day and time.  If you didn’t watch last Tuesday or Thursday, I’m sure you won’t tonight either.
  • October Road (ABC, 9pm):  Special time.  In the season (series?) finale, “Eddie’s ex-girlfriend shows up to reconnect with him, causing problems in his relationship with Janet.”  Since we may never get a satisfactory resolution from this ratings-starved show, let’s just pretend Janet kicks her ass.

Survivor Micronesia: He’s a Ball of Goo!

Survivor Micronesia, Chet

In the fifth week of , the hits just kept on coming.  During last night’s episode we saw hits that affected alliances, strategies, bodies and overall team morale.

Not surprisingly, there was a wide mix of emotions at Airai’s camp after Mikey B’s surprise elimination last week.  Chet – a bit cocky because he had somehow managed to live another day – was now setting his sights on Jason.  Meanwhile, the gymnastics instructor was still reeling from his team’s idiotic decision.  With the beefy writer now gone, Jason was in a tribe he no longer wanted to be a part of.

Thursday Ratings: Lost Continues to Slide

Maybe last night’s episode was a bit too confusing?  Whatever the reason, Lost is returning to old ways and starting to see declining numbers.  (Not that it would have been able to stop FOX anyway.)

Survivor Micronesia: That’s Baked, Barbecued and Fried!

Survivor Micronesia

Wow – the decisions made by this year’s crop of players never cease to amaze me.  We’re already four weeks in now, and I’m not quite yet sure whether boasts the stupidest or the cleverest cast of characters yet.

The strange choice to eliminate Yau-Man continued to have aftershocks long after the Tribal Council.  Ami apologized to Cirie for surprisingly writing her name down, but said she only did it because she didn’t like how Cirie was going back and forth.  Later, Jonathan had his own exchange with the swing vote – but that conversation was far less cordial.  He accused her of being far more manipulative and devious than he.

Survivor Micronesia: I Should Be Carried on the Chariot-Type Thing

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Survivor,

Survivor Micronesia

The first two weeks of have given us several head-shaking Tribal Councils in a row.  Let me assure you, Week 3 was no different.

Mikey B. – who was completely blindsided by Mary’s elimination last week – quickly figured out that Joel was behind the whole plan.  Unfortunately, he just couldn’t figure out why the firefighter did it.  “I don’t blame the move as long as the move wasn’t you trying to take that whole crew.”  (Uhh, what other reason would he have?)  Mikey felt Mary’s dismissal was a completely wasted move.  Instead of getting rid of the weak links on their team, he thought Joel was far too focused on the long game.
