Episode Summary

EDIT
During the night on Fei Long, Jean-Robert addresses the feud between him and Courtney to the other tribemates. The next day on Zhan Hu, Peih-Gee wants James to trust her and the rest of the tribe. But while the others aren't looking, James goes straight for the second Immunity Idol and successfully finds it. Back on Fei Long, Todd and Courtney argue on Jean-Robert's presence in the tribe. Meanwhile on Zhan Hu, Jaime and Erik think they have found an Immunity Idol after James secretly removed and tossed away the incorrect plank of wood. Jaime keeps it in her bag just in case. Then at night, Jaime looks through James's bag and finds both Immunity Idols inside. The next morning, James realizes the other plank of wood is missing and predicts that the others have it thinking it's an Idol. Later that afternoon, both tribes meet and officially merge consisting of six original Fei Long members and four original Zhan Hu. The newly merged tribe then go on to enjoy Chinese culture and performances and a feast. After returning to camp they decide on the new tribe name, Hae Da Fung. Suddenly, Jeff shows up at the camp and leads the tribe to their first individual Immunity Challenge. In the time between the end of the challenge and Tribal Council, everyone on the tribe is scrambling and making plans as to who they are going to vote for and who will stick together as an alliance and who will play the Immunity Idol. At Tribal Council the vote is between Jaime and Jean-Robertmoreless

  • Ep 7: The tribes merge, and Jamie plays an

    8.5
    This episode deserves an 8.5 solely for the look on everyone's face as Jamie pulls out what she thinks is an Immunity Idol.







    Backing up a little bit: the tribes finally merge, and it's clear right off the bat that Fei Long still has absolute control. No matter how much the editors attempt to make us believe that people are wavering within the Fei Long tribe, it's clear Todd and Amanda have absolute control over everything. For one, James has both hidden idols, and as a result, is strengthening Todd and Amanda's standing in the game.







    At this point, the crux of the season's drama is on Courtney, and whether or not she'll stick with Fei Long. Todd wants to play Jean-Robert and keep him around only until the Zhan Hu members are gone. Jean-Robert threatens to withhold his vote for Todd if he makes the jury and Todd makes it to the end, but something tells me that Todd will find a way to place the blame on someone else's shoulder. Either that, or he really doesn't care.







    The best part of the episode comes down to Tribal Council. To recap: James has the two hidden idols, while Jamie has a piece of wood that she believes is an idol. We get a scene earlier in the episode with James laughing hysterically, wishing that Jamie will play the idol so she can be bamboozled. James gets his wish. As Jeff is about to read the votes, Jamie hands the wood to Jeff. Jeff looks at it, claims it isn't an idol, and throws it into the fire.







    Hilarious, and judging by some of the snickers from the players, they found it funny too. I wonder if Jamie kept her eyes on who was laughing, because she's officially the first member of the jury. A nice cap on a pretty interesting episode.moreless
  • This episode was too predictable and it focused way too much on Jaime's mistake

    7.9
    I didn't really like this episode. Mostly because Jaime was my favorite and it didn't paint her in a very positive light. The whole episode I wanted it to be some twist we didn't know about and for her to have some insight on there being another idol. I also felt like the producers choose to paint her out to be stupid. It was similiar to what James had and it made sense for her to try it. She was just being overly hopeful, what is the big deal. The episode was also predictable. I was pretty sure Jaime would go through out it. I did like Jeff's line about how they were always playing the game and it was cool to see them tested on if they were paying attention.moreless

    I tend to disfavor episode where a challenge is not presetned with the excuse of a merge, but the festive in this one was really good. When jeff said the game never stops i couldnt stop thinking about what he meant. For some reason I thought that the dragon in the center of the table may have been an immunity idol, but that was thrown out the second Jeff came at immunity. The challeneg itself wasnt all that amazing, but the mad scramble in the last part of the episode was fun to watch. Jamie becomes the first member of the jury playing a fake immunity idol, classic. James is going to have fun with the one. He now has 2 idols with 9 players left. He wins any physical challenege. Basically I see it as James need to lose 3 challeneges from here to the final four (5 episodes) I dont think its even possible for that to happen. Solid episode, about what you would expect from Survivor.moreless
  • You go James!

    9.5
    Since I like James, and have been thinking he's so close to being voted off, it's nice to see him protected for a while, and safe. I just loved that Jamie got voted off. Nothing personal really, I just really hated the past episode with her and the other girl throwing that challenge to get Aaron voted off (I liked him too), and then laughing about it, thinking they had everything in the bag when they merged. Well they did, and Frosti is in it for himselves and Sheari is gone, so they were alone. Should of zigged instead of zagging girls.moreless
  • James big secret!

    9.0
    It is really a good survivor that they had. As Jean-Robert who is really getting on everybody's nerves as well as Courtney's nerves rattling on everybody else. While we learn a big secret of James. That he has not just one but two idols. He seems safe until Jamie gets hold of one of the idols. As Jamie panics when he realizes that one of them is gone. And now, he is getting ticked off. Meanwhile, the tribes merge. Despite the hospitality and Chinese people giving them food despite the merge. Nobody is safe as Jeff says, the game goes on. Frosti wins the first immunity thing. Jamie goes home! Jean-Robert is spared. At least for now but Jamie becomes the first jury member!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • James: (imitating what would happen if she plays the plaque from the haifang that isn't the idol at Tribal Council) She'll pull it out and like, 'what you mean? That don't have no writin' on that!' You have to have somethin', how 'bout one of THEEEESE!?!?'

    • Jeff: (After Jamie handed him the fake hidden Immunity Idol) The rules of Survivor state that if a hidden Immunity Idol is played, any votes casted against that person will not count and the next person with thehighest votes will be sent home. That's in the case of a hidden Immunity Idol being played. This however is NOT the hidden Immunity Idol
      (Jeff tossed the fake idol into the fire while some of the members were smiling and laughing especially Jean-Robert who was relieved)

    • Todd: Wow, does she (Jaime) have to catch up. She's on the small bike in the back peddling as fast as she can.

    • Jeff Probst: This game never stops.

    • James: I feel that Jamie would be looking for but there is no way this dummy would grabbed the wrong one. It would have to say Immunity something on it. The thought of this woman having a blank one, I would not be able to take it. I would pass out in pure joy. (Began to cracked up)My head would explode! Please let that happen! Please! That would be the best thing ever. (Then he begin to imitate Jamie's reaction after she finds out that she took the wrong one during Tribal Council)

    • Todd: Right now I need my numbers and Jean-Robert is one of my numbers. Deal with it, bitch!

    • James: I'm on Survivor with two idols!

    • Jaime: I tried playing the Hidden Immunity Idol. It wasn't it, but it was worth a shot.
