We have our final four. Another player was voted off tonight on Survivor: Cagayan. My full recap will be up at midnight [UPDATE: Dalton's Survivor recap is now live!] , but to find out or sound off about the episode and who was sent home, read on for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan.]
I always feel so sorry for the person that is voted out of Survivor just before the finale. It’s like, they were so close to making it to the final episode. Poor guy. Or gal. This time it was a gal, as Trish was betrayed by Tony and Woo and sent to the jury. Her big crime? Being a more likeable alternative to Kass and thereby more of a threat to siphon votes in the finals. So they got rid of her.
That means our final four heading into next Wednesday’s finale will be Tony, Spencer, Woo, and Kass. You have to figure if Spencer makes the finals the game is his. If he doesn’t, things become a little murky. No way in a million years Kass wins this game, but would a jury reward Tony for playing the game a million miles an hour, or reward Woo because they simply like him more? At this point, that’s a hypothetical situation, but one which very much could come to pass.
As for tonight’s episode, Tony won the reward challenge after transporting the most amount of mud into his overflowing bucket. He and Trish then enjoyed a pizza feast that shockingly had no corporate sponsorship attached. Apparently, the pizza must have affected him somehow because the next thing we knew, Tony was yelling at Kass…in llama.
With his game on the line, Spencer came from way behind to defeat Tony in the immunity challenge after the jersey cop/phony baloney construction worker could not figure out a slide puzzle. With Spencer safe, the rest turned on Trish and voted her out. (But not before Tony started impersonating a llama yet again at Tribal Council. Did he have a traumatic petting zoo experience at some point?)
