Hi, guys. I’m going to ask for forgiveness in advance. Today’s blog is lacking a little bit but only because it was a really busy week for me and I just didn’t have time to sit down and allocate the time I normally do to sharing insight and finding new places to say the word “holllllla!” I will do my best to be back in strong force next week and thanks for understanding.

EP 5 SURVIVOR: NICARAGUA:  TELL THE TRUTH

TELL THE TRUTH
You knew the tribe switch was coming when Marty said: “It would take something extraordinary, off the charts and completely whacked out to destroy my plan.” Marty, did you forget what game you’re playing? This is Survivor. We invented the “twist.” The only thing you can count on with Survivor is to never count on anything.

TELL THE TRUTH
You’re a little glad the switch happened because now maybe the challenges will get a bit more aggressive… and oh yeah, the Medallion of Poooowwwer is gone!

TELL THE TRUTH
You shook your head in amazement when Tyrone started bossing his new tribemates around. Another unaware Survivor making a critical mistake.

TELL THE TRUTH
You were annoyed when Marty and Jill started explaining the “protocol” at their old camp, hoping to influence the youngsters.

TELL THE TRUTH
You yelled at your tv and jumped up and down in frustration when Naonka talked about how things have “changed’ between her and Alina, and that they are now tight.

TELL THE TRUTH
You turned to the person you were watching with and said “What is he doing?” when Marty admitted to having the Immunity Idol.

TELL THE TRUTH
You grew to like Brenda a little bit more when she gave a no holds barred lowdown on Marty’s idiotic move to reveal to the tribe that he had the idol.

TELL THE TRUTH
You first laughed… and then after a moment, had a touch of sadness, followed by another fit of laughter when Naonka cried to her new best friend, Alina, about how tough it was to be out in the rain.

TELL THE TRUTH
Initially, you wished Chase would have stayed quiet and not tried to talk Naonka into staying in the game. “Let her quit” you yelled at the screen.

TELL THE TRUTH
Once you heard Chase’s story about his father, you forgot about Naonka and thought about your own dad and your family and those you love, and you liked Chase a little bit more afterward.

TELL THE TRUTH
When Naonka said, “I’m not a quitter… I think I’m done” you jumped for joy and said, “Oh I hope she quits!”

TELL THE TRUTH
You knew Tyrone was in trouble when the tribe said they wanted to kill the chicken and Tyrone said, “So we going with that?” But when he then followed it up with “I think we should keep it,” you knew he would get votes. But when he said “just be conscious of your neighbor” and then took the biggest piece of chicken, you knew he was done.

TELL THE TRUTH
Thus far, this isn’t your favorite of all the blogs I’ve written.

TELL THE TRUTH
Guys: From the Espada tribe, who do you find the most attractive? Alina? Yve? Naonka?
Women: Is it Benri? Chase? Dan?

TELL THE TRUTH
The last question was pretty pathetic.

TELL THE TRUTH
When Naonka shared her story of divorce, you had a moment of thinking “Hmm.. she does have a conscience. Maybe she’s not as bad as I thought.”

TELL THE TRUTH
When Naonka said “there was not twenty-four hours in that day…it was like twenty-six, but it felt like forty-eight.” You laughed out loud, because that is a funny line.

TELL THE TRUTH
The moment of the night was when Benri knocked over the bell at the voting booth after proclaiming “Benri’s here baby.” Instant classic.

TELL THE TRUTH
You won’t really miss Tyrone. You’re glad Naonka is still around… and… you’re asking, “why didn’t you include Brenda in your “attractive” question?

Sorry so short, it was a busy week and now it’s late. I really do hope you are enjoying this season of Survivor!
