Um, why is Russell one of the three choices for the Product Placement Player of the Week? Since when was it good Survivor strategy to work way too hard around camp and not drink water for five days and then take on an intensely physical challenge unnecessarily? And yet, I still think he did a better job this week than the other two choices, who are John, who was invisible, and Li'l Russell, who ate a banana. I really don't understand that Player of the Week thing.
After the break, a shark swims casually up to a school of fish and eats one. Well, that fish had it coming. When a shark swims up to you, you get the hell out of there. My god, this episode must be boring (except for the part where Russell kind of died) if I've resorted to recapping the fish.
We slowly transition to Camp Foa Foa, where Liz says her tribe was "close to winning" when "Big Russell had his medical accident." Oh, Liz, just stop talking. You constantly sound like a moron, and I'm like 75% sure you are not a moron. She says that the win didn't matter much anyway, since they have to vote someone out no matter what, something she finds "surprising" and "a little upsetting." I'll say -- it means Foa Foa is down to four people (maximum) going into a merge. So, they're screwed. Liz and Natalie eat some mini-bananas and discuss the vote. They realize they're both voting for each other and high-five about it. Liz says it only makes sense to vote a woman off tonight because they need the guys to win challenges. Because those guys have done such a great job of winning so far. Why does Liz hate women so much? If she hadn't rallied so hard to vote women off before, she wouldn't be in such a bad position now. Li'l Russell meets with Natalie on the beach and tells her to vote for Liz. He says he's voting for her and he's sure Mick will do whatever he asks. He probably thinks that Natalie is only voting for Liz because he told her to. Meanwhile, we saw her make that decision before. But I'm sure the previously segment next week will tell us all how Li'l Russell engineered Liz's ouster right after he single-handedly caused Galu's Russell to collapse from dehydration.
