Ah, Fang. Fang, Fang, Fang. After an elephant sighting provides the show with some filler time, the teams go to a fruit-throwing reward challenge where Kota wins a crappy herb garden and sends Sugar back to Exile "Island." And when they get back to camp, Dan goes on and on about how Fang is the "empire of evil," which doesn't do much to make the original Kota Kids think he's completely loyal to them now.
Back with the Fang Failures, GC gets all hot and bothered when Crystal jokes around with him to eat his rice and he accuses her of telling him what to do. He throws a temper tantrum and goes off in the kayak, which means when it's time to leave for the immunity challenge he's nowhere to be found. I was wondering what would happen if a contestant just didn't go to an immunity challenge, but I guess I'll never know because GC shows up at the last second and Fang goes to the challenge intact. There, they lose again because Ace doesn't know the difference between Randy and Sugar's voices. Sigh. Also, he got hit on the nose in both challenges this week and acted like a baby about it both times, so that was funny.
Back at camp, GC decides that he's done with this game and says he wants to be voted out. That's fine with everyone else … until they remember that Sugar could have the idol. When she leaves her bag unattended, they search it and find the idol and start to plan to blindside her by voting for her tonight instead of GC the Quitter. At Tribal Council, Probst basically tells Sugar that the rest of the tribe searched her bag, but she still doesn't play the idol and it ends up working out just fine for her, as the tribe votes out GC without even at least trying to flush out the idol.
Check back for the full recap on Wednesday. Until then, watch some video about where they should have the next Survivor.
Okay, so, Probst is out of control on this week's "previously on" segment. First he starts off by going all the way back to the beginning of the freaking season, and then he's off crapping on Fang again, saying the amazing Kota tribe "systematically devoured the weak and struggling" Fang. He does not see fit to mention Fang's two wins, but instead skips to last week's tribe switch. Now he focuses his rage on Kelly, as he says Fang had the chance during the switch to "improve themselves," only to "foolishly" pick "weak players" like Kelly over strong ones like Bob, the confused old man. Then Fang lost the immunity challenge and were at "an all-time low," as somehow demonstrated by Ace's weird quote about legless chickens and sleek weasels. At Tribal Council, they had a choice to vote for the "strong player" Jacquie or the "weak" Kelly and "as though they had a death wish," they voted out Jacquie. Death wish, my ass! That was strategy. All they have to do is keep voting out the old Kota tribe members and then they'll have the numbers in the merge. They may have to lose challenges to do that, but it's worth losing a few battles to win the war. Although I'm not so sure Fang is seeing it like that. In fact, I think they might just be sucking. But at least they're sucking with a big majority alliance!
Fang returns to camp and GC immediately sets to making rice, because it's not like they're running low on it or anything. He asks Ken if he wants some, and Ken half-heartedly says yes. I can't wait for their rice to run out. It's gonna be hilarious. Ace points out that Sugar will be starving when she arrives, since she hasn't eaten in three days. Ha! Sugar is full. Girlfriend partied it up at Exile "Island." Looking worried for once, Ace says that with Jacquie now gone, he knows things aren't looking good for him. He says he'll have to pull off a "coup de grâce once again." When did he pull off his first one, exactly? As Sugar arrives at Fang (they made her walk over in the middle of the night? Mean), Ace says she has the immunity idol up her sleeve, and he thinks he has Sugar in his pocket. That's a lot of clothes for the idol to be hiding in. Fang greets Sugar and Kelly is all fake smiles. Sugar quickly figures out that Jacquie got the boot. "That sucks," she says. She tells us she was expecting to see Jacquie and Ace there, not Kelly. She hopes that it was dark enough out so Kelly didn't see her incredible disappointment. Yeah ... it would have to be very dark indeed for Kelly not to hear you say "that sucks."
