But really, the only big strategist in this game is Sugar. The next morning, Sugar whispers to Bob that Ken thinks he's in an alliance with her, while Susie thinks she's tight with Matty. Sugar says she'll just pretend she's still with Ken and Matty will pretend he's with Susie, and then Bob, Sugar, and Matty will take Ken and Susie out. "Is that cool with you?" she asks. "Yes, dear," Bob says. Sugar tells us that she wants to be in the Final Three with Bob and Matty because she apparently hates money. That means Ken and Susie have to go. She'll cozy up to Ken again and try to win back his trust after voting Crystal out. That's going to be difficult after publicly giving the idol to Matty, no?
Sugar and Ken go for a walk. She says if Bob doesn't win today, he's gone. If he does, then Susie's gone. Then it'll be Ken, Matty, and Sugar as the Final Three. Ken says he's determined Bob won't win today. They open the treemail to find some craft supplies and face paint and head back to camp. Ken tells us that he felt like Sugar blindsided him last night, but after talking to her today, he feels comfortable that she wants to take him to the Final Three. Was he not paying attention when she said "Matty take this cursed thing away" at the last Tribal Council? Does he not realize that that was a big old fuck you? How can people possibly underestimate Sugar this late in the game after everything she's done? And yet, they do. It's amazing.
Ken reads the clue. It rhymes, and the last four lines are:
An amazin' chance you've got
An amazin' trip you're on
An amazin' shot at a million bucks
If you conquer amazin' Gabon.
No, I don't know why they dropped the g from amazing. All I know is that "Gabon" is clearly supposed to rhyme with "on," but Ken pronounced it "Ga-bone." Dumbass.
Amazin'ly, we actually hear from Susie, who says it feels great to be in the Final Five. She adds that it's Day 37, and they have a challenge coming up. I guess I know why we don't hear much from Susie. But if the next challenge involves stating the obvious, she has a great chance to make it to the Final Four. Susie goes on to say that they were given face paint and beads and stuff in five different colors for them to use to dress themselves up as warriors. She says this with a great, "why are they making us do this cheesy bullshit?" expression on her face that is probably another reason why we don't hear much from her. Survivor takes itself too seriously for you to make fun of its sacred and meaningless ceremonies. Meanwhile, you know that no one's going to dress up at all since Bob has already stolen everything to make 750 fake idols.
