I made a few recent mistakes. I recently re-watched some challenges and Jason has been much better at challenges than I remembered. Many things I thought Scot did were actually done by Jason. It also turns out CBS have been misspelling “Aubry” as “Aubrey.” Our mistake.
The Brains tribe had the clear distinctions of Neal and Aubry on one side. Based on the videos they were the main providers. They are both strategic but very quiet about it and want to avoid being voted out early. Peter and Liz were according to Debbie the laziest two around camp. They started out likable but slowly got more and more arrogant and demanded to be in control. At least they wanted to make big moves, but that social failing is how to get voted out early. Debbie and Joe were obvious older targets but considered to not be threats down the road.
In an interview Liz said they were given no rice, but they had hordes of shellfish. She is allergic to shellfish and was barely eating. It makes me wonder if they sent her home because she was probably the most Hungary.
It s really hard to rate them as challenge competitors, but they do seem to have good strength all the way down. They are also very fun to watch competitors, which is why they had such a great episode.
Edit wise I doubt Peter could pull a Spencer. He has not been show strategizing much or shown to have Spencer’s inner humility that rarely gets out. Debbie will likely last deep. Joe will probably be gone soon. Neal is getting a fine edit with decent strategy each time. I really think Aubry is getting a winner’s edit. She had the great episode one story about overcoming her problems to win the first challenge. They showed Debbie cheering on her and only her specifically. They showed her suggesting they vote out Peter instead of Liz. In Caramoan they showed Cochran making a plan like that, which did not happen when they ultimately voted out Malcolm. They are showing her being strategic as both a red herring and to likely make sure the audience remembers her.
My big winners are 1) Caleb for infiltrating an alliance, having a close ally finding an idol, and being great in the challenge. 2) Jason for getting an idol. 3) Debbie. She was instrumental in this episode, but I do not know if it really will help her in the end that much, and based on a few secret scenes and interviews Neal and Aubry already knew about Peter and Liz’s plan.
Most likely to go next is the medical evacuation. It looks to be either Caleb or Joe.
