“Tito, get me a tissue…”
That’s right, folks, it looks like we’re in for an emotional night. The HUGE Loved Ones visit is tonight, and everyone’s guessing just who in the hell will be devastated when Adam steals their Reward. He is going to steal the Reward, right?
To be fair, it’s almost not right to call it an “advantage,” since it really packs more of a negative impact than a positive one, if you consider the target that it’ll put on his back. Let’s see how he figures that one out (at least he’s not screaming anymore).
But first, massive thanks for all the wonderful comments sent in this week. THAT is the interaction I’ve been craving since season 31, having skipped last season and this season’s mailbag being relatively quiet. Props to those of you who do write in often – Rick, Kate, Erica – and a warm welcome to the new commenters. If you haven’t already, please register through WordPress so you can send in a comment. Don’t worry, it won’t bite… And neither will I, no matter the content of your comment.
I even learned this week about Hannah’s girl boner and her dirty face, which evidently are both perfectly normal physical conditions (thanks, avital!). I don’t need to explain what they are, because, A) you can read avital’s comment below, and B) I just don’t like that Larry’s on this season. And as Bobby Brown once said…
“It’s my prerogative…”
Thankfully, we’ve got a normal 60-minute episode tonight, so I’m praying I won’t be writing until 3 am. Fish has a J.O.B. now, so he needs to put his tired head to bed eventually. But let’s knock back a few highballs until midnight and see what evil lurks in the crevices of my mind. To the beach!
Jeff reminds us…
-Players drew rocks, and Jessica had her battleship sunk…
…willing her Legacy Advantage to Ken
That’s it? That’s all we get, Jeff? Heck, I guess this means the Legacy Advantage is the only important thing that’s happening tonight, and not all of that emotional baggage of the Loved Ones visit. Phew! I thought I was going to have to grab a box of Kleenex. And please don’t ask me why it’s next to my side of the bed…
We head over to the Vinaka camp (Night 30) and David is hanging upside down cleaning his wings. Oh, wait, that’s a fruit bat, never mind. Players stagger in and appear overwhelmed at having just drawn rocks. Everyone throws down their torch while Will plays Life Coach to Hannah, reminding her,
“You’re still here. I’m still here. We’re all still here…”
Uh, no, genius, everyone is not still here. You just got rid of Jessica, don’t you remember that? Of course not, you selfish Millennial! But Hannah is feeling awful for being the reason Jessica was sent home, and once again proves she should never have been cast (have I made it perfectly clear how I feel about her yet…?)
Her whimpering continues with Sunday and David, who both need to point out that it’s not “All Hannah’s Fault” for Jessica’s departure. I’m sorry, she knows how this game works, right? She’s seen the show before?
More importantly – and at this point, ANYTHING is more important than how much Hannah knows about the game – David is pissed he burned his idol on Ken at Tribal, which has now left him vulnerable, in a minority, and in desperate need of finding a crack in the other alliance, which holds a 5-4 advantage. Otherwise,
“The 5 is just going to pick us off, one by one…starting with me.”
