There's one thing I hate in Survivor, and that's "love I hate it when two players supposedly form a strong physical connection/bond. I honestly can't explain why I hate it. Or let's put it this way: I hate the way they portrayed it this season with Erik and Jamie. It sort of appears out of nowhere, and it couldn't be more awkward.
The big twist this episode is that each tribe is able to choose the two strongest members from the opposing tribe and steal them. Of course, the move goes exactly the way you'd expect for Zhan Hu, and James and Aaron switch sides from Fei Long. As a result, they're outnumbered three-to-two and are immediately on the chopping block.
If thats not enough, Jamie and Peih Ge decide throwing the challenge is the best way to make sure both tribes have even numbers heading into the merge. Boy, I understand that strategy is a part of the game, and that Jamie and Peih Ge are simply pulling a manuever, but I feel James and Aaron's pain. You fight as hard as you can and your teammates throw the challenge to prepare for something that hasn't happened yet.
I think it'd be a whole different story if Jamie and Peih Gee weren't laughing the entire time. They treated it like a joke. It makes for fun television to see twists like that, but it also made me want to see them disappear from this game. They also pulled a slimy move by convincing Aaron that James was going, even though they were prepared to vote Aaron out that whole time (and James actually WANTED to go!) It's a weird episode, and one that wasn't really all that fun to watch.
