Anyway, Mick releases 19 coconuts in all, making the game much closer. "It's okay. You got two prayer warriors on your team," Natalie says to make him feel better. Or worse. It depends on his own personal feelings about religion, I suppose. Jaison goes next, and oops! He releases like a billion coconuts just by releasing the rope. The look on his face as they roll past him is pretty great. By the time Jaison has the rope pulled, he's dropped 48 coconuts and yellow's score is 77 to purple's 23. It looks certain that purple will win this, seeing as how Natalie is up next and she is a Prayer Warrior of the highest order. Probst says that Natalie has done well in this challenge so far. "God has taken care of me, for sure," she says. Don't talk back, Natalie. That's rude. "My prediction is 58," Shambo says to her team, who just look at her like "whatever." Whatever, indeed. We all know how crappy Shambo's psychic visions can be. Although those visions are from god, and yet, he is on Natalie's side because she asked first. WHOSE SELFISH ABUSE OF RELIGION WILL PREVAIL??
As it turns out, Shambo's. God forsakes the hell out of Natalie as she pulls the rope and coconuts drop for the next ten minutes. "Oh my word," Natalie says over and over again. She manages to release 58 coconuts, which was exactly Shambo's prediction. Wow, I guess she does have psychic powers after all. Although for someone who acted like seeing into the future was a regular thing for her, Shambo is shocked to be correct. And now the score is 77 for yellow and 81 for the prayer warriors. Wow, that was freaking horrible. I don't even know how it's possible to release that many coconuts by just pulling one string. Li'l Russell is up next. He studies the ropes carefully, no doubt looking for the one that has been marked by production just for him, and pulls. Zero coconuts are released. Isn't Li'l Russell just amazing. And then it's Brett's turn. The prayer warrior pulls the string ... and 23 coconuts fall. Li'l Russell, Jaison, and Shambo win the reward. Which means that our ambassadors to the Samoan village include Li'l Russell and Shambo. I hope you didn't have any plans to visit Samoa, because Americans are probably banned from it for all eternity now. Either that, or Li'l Russell has been hailed as a hero with god-like powers after going through their village and unearthing several ancient relics that were thought to be lost forever and a few no one knew existed in the first place.
