Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 6: Being on the Bottom

Peter, the bottom of the Brain tribe, has been removed from the game.  I thought his fight with Joe would just be a  red herring, but I was wrong.  It was foreshadowing and it helped make Aubry switch.  His problems were his inability to stop scheming in a season where everyone is trying to play a more laid back game.

He made an alliance with Liz deeming her the only other strategist.  This pitted more forceful strategists against the laid back trio of Neal, Aubry, and Debbie.  By always strategizing they could not make friends well and pit them against each other or recruit Joe.  A key part of strategizing is making friends.  Russell is known for having no social game, but he definetly made people want to work with him by finding those whom no one else wanted to work with and making them feel like he was irreplaceable.  Peter could not do that.

How did he come off as so untrustworthy.  He earlier got mad at Tai before the swap, and that him memorable for being angry.  Thus, the beauty and Brawn tribes did not want to work with him.  He also seemed to view everyone but Liz as a paw, and seemed to make it clear he thought he was the best strategist, as a result everyone correctly assumed he was waiting to blindside them.

Did Aubry or Joe make the right choice?  Having five brains i a tribe of 11 (especially if one is untrustorthy is very risky, but it also has the potential to take control early, but no tribe in a three tribe season has been able to do that.  Thus I think this was a good move to eliminate Peter.  Joe always called Peter “Pete.”  He confirmed in an exit interview that he thought Joe voted him out instead, and I think Aubry did that on purpose.

My big winners are

  1.  Scot for potentially making a beauty and brawn alliance.
  2. Aubry for removing a wild card.
  3. Julia for doing what Anna could not do.

The most likely to go next are (assuming no medical evacuation and Nick wins the next  challenge we saw photos of)

  1.  Debbie- No idol and a strategist.
  2. Jason- Blindsided with idol.
  3. Aubry as a physical threat and maybe Joe turning on her.

Survivor Kaoh Rong Episode 3: Brain tribe Analysis

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.
