RIP season 24. Kidding, but I am severely depressed on the events that transpired on this past episode. Colton ran this game and it was a sad night seeing him get medically evacuated. Whether you liked him or hated him, he had a unique skill set on how to manipulate people. Example, This is a secret scene on how Colton manipulated the new tribe by being the “baby” to the women. His strategy is to appear weak and have the women nurture him while he gains their trust and gathers information.
This episode started with the mean kids, Alicia and Colton, picking on Christina. Christina is clearly going home next and Colton is making it clear as day on her future dismissal. Honorably, Christina doesn’t sink down to their level and keeps her head in the game to persevere.
The reward challenge had the tribes use their throwing skills. The tribes had to throw a coconut to a spring to hit 5 different targets. Shocking, the Manono tribe fared decent against Salani. However, Salani won 5-3 and won the reward of an ice cream parlor day.
Back at Manono camp, Colton is back to his ways by humiliating Christina on going home. While Colton, Tarzan, and Alicia go off to talk strategy, Christina optimizes the moment swaying Leif and Jonas to not vote her out. Christina mentions that Alicia is a part of the 5-member women’s alliance and she will rejoin the ladies once the tribes merge. This makes Jonas re-evaluate keeping Alicia over Christina. Alicia is now back at camp and overheard Christina throw her under the bus. Alicia starts yelling at Christina saying she is going home soon so it doesn’t matter what she says.
Later that night, Colton has a head ache and he has problems going to sleep. Out of all the people to help Colton feel better, Christina takes on the nurturing role. Note: less than 12 hours ago, she was his emotional punching bag. See here on this CBS exclusive clip.
The next day, Colton is not feeling any better and he has the biggest downfall of mankind. If Colton was seriously not in pain, he could win the Emmy for his performance. Survivor medics and Jeff Probst (wearing flip flops in the jungle???) came to assess the situation. The medics ruled Colton has appendicitis and that he can no longer participate in the game. Colton said his farewells to his tribe and kept the immunity idol as his souvenir instead of helping his former tribe or ally Alicia.
A tree mail message sent both tribes to tribal council where eventually the tribes merged. Before that, the Salani tribe was informed on Colton’s appendicitis. Kat was shocked how someone could get it and was scared she might get appendicitis. Oh, how adorable can a blond get? Colton is the 6th person eliminated on this season of Survivor.
Colton was the villain of this season, but, he was the villain that I actually enjoyed. Now, I am rooting for Sabrina, Christina, or Jay. However, it all doesn’t matter due to the winner’s edit for Kim. Colton may have won in the end because he is sure to be a producer’s pick on another all-stars or Heroes vs. Villains season. This is not the last for Colton Cumbie.To rewatch this past episode click here. Also, If you have any other points or discussion about this past episode just leave a comment.
