Survivor: The Price of Rice

blue tribe

The sad, wet, hungry blue tribe.


Don’t mind me. I’m just laughing over the blue tribe having to trade all their comfort items for rice this week, only a few days before merging with a tribe that has rice.

Don’t get me wrong – I would’ve made the trade. Sustenance is more important than comfort. And all those people wouldn’t be able to live off one tribe’s rice supply forever. But still. It’s funny.

Jeremy didn’t agree, though – wow, was he ever against making that trade! Is there food on that island that only he knows about? They’re not getting fish, but is there a secret plantain supply somewhere? He seemed too comfortable with the idea of just getting by off Reward Challenge wins.

Let’s talk about Reed and Josh. They are well on their way to becoming the biggest threats, and targets, in this game. Reed handily won the Reward Challenge this week. Then he and Josh made an incredible comeback during the Immunity Challenge, winning that as well. They’re in love and they’re on the same tribe. They’re dangerous, but I’m rooting for them.

Over at the other tribe, the one that can’t catch a break, Dale was trying everything he could to stay in the game. I love when people try to craft fake Hidden Immunity Idols! Jon fell for it hook, line and sinker – but that wasn’t enough. The alliance simply split their votes, and Dale was sent packing.

This is a short blog post because it was a pretty boring episode. We saw very little of Baylor and Natalie at Exile, and the vote was predictable. But that’s OK – things will heat up next week when the tribes are merged and all the loved ones are reunited. I hope Josh and Reed manage to both stay in for as long as possible.
