Episode Summary

EDIT
As the tribe wakes up, James realizes he had a close call at Tribal last night and reveals that he now plans to bring the Immunity Idol to every Tribal Council to be safe. Courtney is happy to wake up with no Jean-Robert at camp. Meanwhile, Denise continues to feel left out of the alliance since she was the only one to vote for Peih-Gee at the last Tribal Council. James thinks Courtney has become annoying and unstable in the alliance as she is always flirting with "Frosti".

"Frosti", Amanda, Erik and Courtney win the reward of a cruise down the Li River and enjoy a meal. After the Reward Challenge loss, Peih-Gee takes it out on James and their argument creates tension at camp. On the reward cruise, relationships spark and the castaways enjoy themselves. When everyone is back at camp, Todd reveals how Peih-Gee hasn't been getting along with the others.

At the Immunity Challenge, Jeff tempts the contestants and offers food instead of participating in the challenge, everyone except Peih-Gee, Amanda, "Frosti" and Erik go for the meal. After Peih-Gee's immunity win, Erik feels he is the next to go. But after James and Todd discuss things with Denise, "Frosti" and Courtney were put on the chopping block.moreless

  • Ep 9: Courtney flirts, Peih Gee wins when it matters

    7.0
    I think the reason why Exile Island was the last back-to-front great season I remember watching (through the first 15, at least) is because the last several episodes was not just one alliance running over everyone else in the game. Sure, there was a solid alliance of five that were together, but Terry Deitz acted as a spoiler and forced players to turn on one another.







    For the last few seasons, we've had some pretty boring "Final fives" or "Final Just look at this season. Todd's alliance has such a strong hold on the game at this point that the only question is in what order will the rest of the original Zhan Hu tribe be eliminated? That makes Todd an interesting player to watch, but sort of pulls any of the fun out of the whole thing.







    That being said, I definitely wasn't expecting Frosti to go this early. I thought Erik was gone, but Todd convinces everyone else that Frosti is the biggest threat and the most likely to turn Courtney towards the Zhan Hu side. In an Immunity Challenge that finds Frosti and Peih-Gee playing for their lives (Peih-Gee is an almost guarantee to be going home in the event that she doesn't win), Peih-Gee pulls out the win and Frosti assumes that Erik is going home.







    I'm pretty sure that even Erik thought he was going home at that Tribal Council. It's just a good example of how good Todd is at getting his way, but also an example of how little surprise there will be when Todd gets down to the final four. I seriously so no way in which he doesn't make it there, unless his whole alliance mutinies.moreless
  • They have some interesting challenges but Todd and his alliance continue to control the game.

    This episode irritated me because everyone was just letting Todd, James, and Amanda control the game. I can not believe no one even mentioned going against them. Besides that I liked the challenges. The ball bouncing thing was cool. I liked watching the reward challenge and seeing a bit of flirting between Courtney and Frosti. I also liked how they gave them food if they sat out the immunity challenge. I can not believe so many people wanted food, so of course Pei-gee ended up winning. It was interesting to see who Todd would decide to vote out now that Pei-gee was no longer a chance. I was starting to like Frosti and I am disapointed that he is gone. Jeff left us hanging in the end and I can not wait to see what happens next.moreless
  • ok episode...

    The survivors are still stuck in China...whoop. Nothing major happened in this episode. Frosti got voted off because he was seen as more of a threat than Erik was. Courtney as hitting on Frosti. James and Phei-gee have an argument over the reward challenge. Basically, it just was not a very good episode. It was very average. No big upsets or turnovers occured, just the normal survivor stuff. I really think that everyone needs to vote Todd out because he's the leader. Then they need to vote out James. These survivors arn't thinking ahead. Oh well. Overall, nothing really happened in this episode.moreless
  • 7 Survivors Remain...

    James is now 0/3 in Immunity challeneges and is still in the game with 2 hidden immunity idols and only three more tribal councils left in which he can use them. I never would have imagined that this would be happening. If I were Todd I would be voting for James right now. The thing about James is Im not sure how he is going to fair against many of the six that are left. I think he would loss to Todd, Denise, and Courtney, all of which are left in the game and in the part of his alliance right now. Other then my favorite character this years status, the episode was pretty solid. This is about an avaerage, typical, nothing amazing but nothing bad kind of episode coming from Survivor. The reward challenege had the potential to be amazing, but the 3-0 blowout by Frosties team kind of made that a little average to say the least. Also kind of surprise James was the first pick here in this challenege, I would have gone Frostie / Eric back to back number one picks. The immunity challenege was interesting to see who choose to do what, but other then that the challenege wasnt really pulse pounding. Tribal Council went as expected, with Frostie getting the boot this time around. 7 survivors remain, I fail to see how James doesnt make it to at least 4, but he is 0/3 in challeneges right now.moreless
  • Frosti goes bye bye

    Just Don't eat the Apple was a great episode of Survivor. As usual i enjoyed watching every second of this episode just wonder what was going to happen who was going to get voted out. I thought that both of the challanges were great but i ws disappointed that Peih-Gee won the immunity challage so she was not able to be voted out. I thought that she deserved to go home seeing how she blew up at James after the reward challange saying it was his fault they lost when she threw challange just to vote someone out. I can not believe that Courtney helped vote out Frosti.moreless
