Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hiki tribe return from Tribal Council and right away feel the extra pressure, but celebrate when they finally get fire. At the other tribes, chickens seem to all be on the menu as tribes are able to catch and cook chickens. On Aitu, the other tribemates feel Billy is not pulling his own weight and decide maybe to throw the challenge to get someone out. Meanwhile on Puka, Cao-Boi once again cures the headaches of his tribemates. At the Reward/Immunity Challenge, Raro, Hiki and Puka all win immunity. When Aitu returns to camp, Ozzy reveals they lost on purpose to get Billy out. On Exile Island, Yul is able to find the hidden Immunity Idol after reading the clues. At Tribal Council, Billy confesses his love for Candice but also argues with J.P., in the end Billy can't save himself from the vote.moreless

  • Hmm, what to say...

    10
    Throwing a challenge - it is plain stupid if you ask me. No circumstances justify doing that from my point of view, and ozzy is not a player I like at all. I've seen Ozzy in two future seasons as well and I can't stand him in any of the three. He's a very arrogant person.



    I wish Billy had stayed, but after the challenge was thrown, the outcome was kinda obvious. The drama with the Candice thing - I can't believe that! Poor guy...



    Also I'm really loving Candice & Adam o n the blue tribe!



    Looking forward to more!moreless
  • It seems the lazy guys are voted off first...

    5.0
    ...and that's understandable. Last week it was Sekou and this week Billy. And I totally understand each tribe. I would have been furious if I was on an island and some people just lie around expecting me to provide for them like it was some bloody roomservice. Really, how do these people think, when they apply to the show? That it is a sunny vacation on a beach??

    Throwing the challenge was perhaps an extreme strategy, but I would probably have done the same, leeches just makes me cringe.

    Good riddance. Out with the fat deadweight. Done.moreless
  • One of the four tribes does the unthinkable!

    8.8
    In this, the second of the Cook Islands season, things start to get interesting with the tribes with people butting heads and such. Jonathan returns from Exile Island to a warm response but almost immediately butts heads with one of the younger tribemates over the shelter's make-up. This could make for some interesting eps down the line....



    However, two things dominate this episode overall. First, Yul , upon his arrival at Exile Island, deciphers the clues and finds the Hidden Immunity Idol! Hopefully, he'll keep this discovery to himself or at least use it at some point this year.



    The other item that dominated this episode is the decision by Aitu to <b>throw</b> an immunity challenge so they can vote out Billy. This was done in such an obvious manner during the challenge that it even looked like they were trying to shake the rope bridge they were on to make Billy fall off! Pretty nasty stuff, to say the least.....



    All in all, a very strong episode for early in the season. This reviewer hopes things stay this good as the season unfolds.moreless
  • Survivor: Season 13, Episode 2 : How dumb is Ozzy?

    8.8
    I can't believe Ozzy talked everyone into throwing the challenge just so they could get rid of Billy. Ok, so the guy was a slacker but to throw the challenge to get rid of him was just stupid. Shame on everyone else for not voting Ozzy off. Throwing the challenge made it unfair. Ozzy will not win because he'll do something stupid all on his own and he'll be gone.



    I give Ozzy a big PFFFFTT for his stupidity.moreless
  • "I love you!"

    8.6
    I gave this episode such a high rating, despite the lack of action and only one challenge (what is up with another combo reward/immunity challenge?) because of the fact that during trial council, Jeff Probst pretty much laughed in Billy's face. Yes, for all of you who saw it, this may have been one of the top ten moments in "Survivor" history. Poor, disillusioned Billy somehow thought that he and Candace fell in love at first sight after she said, "We love you," to Billy after his tribe lost the challenge. Billy, in turn said, "I love you," to Candace. Stress the word "I." Other than the great tribal council moment, I was happy to see Yul find the hidden immunity idol. He did a great job of interpreting the two clues and now he's protected for one vote until the final four. Unlike Terry last season, I think that Yul will have to use the hidden immunity idol this season because everyone in the game has realized that he's a threat so they'll try to take him out as soon as possible.moreless
