[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.]
For people that don’t seem to be particularly savvy game players, Jon & Jaclyn sure have had a lot of power in Survivor: San Juan del Sur. First they got to play the part of pivotal swing votes in the battle between Missy/Baylor and Dale/Kelley. And ever since the merge, they have been the key components in a power struggle between Jeremy and Josh. Initially, they sided with the firefighter. Then they switched to join up with the Broadway actor. But after Jon was sent away to Exile Island and the other men in that alliance at best ignored Jaclyn and at worst started farting all over camp, she convinced Jon to switch yet again to vote Josh out of the game. And that is exactly what they did.
Was it the right move for them? Considering the other alliance’s seeming non-interest in Jaclyn and how tight the other five dudes were with other, probably. However, only time will tell. Either way, it means the end of the line for Josh, who had proven to be one of the few strong players this season.
In other news, Jon used an absurdly easy clue to find a hidden immunity idol, Wes decided to go both double meat and double cheese on his taco reward and paid for it later (as did everyone else that has to live with him and enjoy his violent bodily reaction), and Jeremy won immunity in a memory challenge that proved how difficult it is to remember goofy little symbols after 21 days with little food, sleep, or shelter.
My full recap will be up later [UPDATE: Dalton’s Survivor recap is now live], but you can sound off now on what went down. Also enjoy our pre-game interview with Reed and the dearly-departed Josh in the video player below, and for more Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
