Last night on “Survivor” viewers came to realize unfortunately that Tony is playing the smartest game of all, whether a fan of this loudmouth and annoying individual or not; credit must be given to how he has played the ultimate game of survival, manipulation and deceit. The reward challenge was played out and the winning team had Tasha, Spencer, Jeremiah, and Jefra, this last one found herself at odds with the ousting of LJ last week and felt she had no security in her old alliance, therefore, agreed to play with the three she just won reward with.
Then back at camp, Trish took Jefra aside and convinced her to remain in her old alliance, explaining that she, Jefra, has nothing to fear and along with Tony managed to have her switch sides once again. It is mind-boggling how lack of character drives a person to change loyalty in the blink of an eye. Now, as far as Tony is concerned is playing a game of deceit unlike anything seen before, but those who are going along with him might also see what viewers see on television, but they are not letting anyone know and are just waiting for the right moment to strike.
Tasha once again won immunity, however, she was not the target last night and based on the talk before tribal council, Spencer should have given Jeremiah his immunity idol, thus canceling out all votes against this and Woo would have gone home. But Spencer chose to use it to save himself and obviously there were no votes against him, he is a strong player as far as challenges are concerned, but he is not very good at strategizing and judging other players. It will not be surprising if Spencer is targeted next week, the numbers are on Tony’s side and so Spencer and Tasha aside from winning individual immunity are easy pickings.
“Survivor” runs on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS.
