Survivor: Gabon

He’s a Snake, But He’s My Snake

Original Air Date: Oct 23, 2008

Rachel – Two Cents Senior Staff Writer

What would you do for some pastries and coffee? And if you didn’t get it, would you cry? And if you cried and someone made fun of you, would you pop him in the nose? I sure would, but I had to settle for yelling at the TV “Randy, you are a jerk and I hate you!”

  1. The Top 13 Things I Learned About the Castaways of Survivor: Gabon

    1. Ace [Fang] has both Sugar and the Immunity Idol in his pocket. But not for the entire episode. Sugar took the Idol back and he was left wondering if he might be blindsided.
    2. Bob [Koto] is sick of Dan and his mammoth appetite. In fact, many in the Koto tribe are sick of Dan. See below.
    3. Charlie [Koto] didn’t do much to stand out in this episode, so I have nothing to write. Except that he didn’t do much to stand out in this episode.
    4. Corrine [Koto], also sick of Dan’s food-hogging tendencies, went as for as to say she is disgusted by him.
    5. Crystal [Fang] is wearing her emotions on her sleeve, which is not always a good thing in this game. She broke down in sheer frustration but then bounced right back to give Kelly a piece of her mind at Tribal Council. It was awesome.
    6. Dan [Koto] eats a lot. I mean, it’s like he is at an all-you-can-eat buffet in Vegas, but he’s not. He’s in the wilds of Africa with rationed food. I predict he’s first to go if Koto ever loses an Immunity Challenge.
    7. Sugar [Fang] got sent to Exile Island. Again. It was too much this time because she knows of the dire food situation back at camp. She feels guilty and thinks that the Koto tribe is just plain mean.
    8. Ken [Fang] doesn’t trust Ace and tried to put in motion a blindside at Tribal Council. That was shut down my Matty.
    9. Marcus [Koto] helped catch a poor turtle for dinner. Thankfully, the nice editors over in Survivor land opted to not show us the killing, cleaning, and cooking. Thank you!
    10. Matty [Fang] has more heart than all of Fang put together. The only problem: he has made a deal with the Devil (Ace) and will not go back on his word (“Not for 5 million dollars”)
    11. Randy [Koto] is a jerk. We knew this from the beginning. But when he said, upon seeing Crystal’s raw emotion at the Reward Challenge, “Waaa! Waaa!” he sunk to a new low. I’m still fuming. If I ever saw him on the street, I’d kick him in the shin.
    12. Susie [Koto] was “excited about the Turtle Gumbo.” Gross.
    13. Kelly [Fang] was riding on coat tails until she called Crystal “unstable” at Tribal Council. Then, to deflect Crystal’s wrath, she tried to throw Ace under the bus. That blew up in her face and if there were ever any question that she would be voted out, it was a stupid question. Bye-bye Kelly!

    What do YOU think? Could you kill a turtle? How cool was the elephant swimming while Ace was talking to the camera? Am I the only one who loathes Randy? Give us your Two Cents… We’ll use it to buy everyone some pastries and coffee.

  2. I wasn't a fan of the turtle killing. It was a bit rough to watch the poor thing swimming around and then see them all discussing how good it tasted. I don't get why this year it seems like the contestants didn't get the memo that there isn't much food to be had on Survivor. And a big YES, Randy is a jerk. I don't see why anyone would hire him to be their wedding videographer, before or after seeing him on Survivor. He's just a miserable jerk. I can't believe he's doing so well there.

    The thing that's driving me insane is Ace's "accent." It comes and goes worse than Kevin Costner's in Robin Hood.
