Quote of the Week: "She wouldn't even know how to talk. She might even say, 'Oh, he's right, give it all to him.' She's so sweet, I love it." - The Russell speaking about his alliance with Natalie and the final voting. Looks like Natalie won the "Dumb Blonde Alliance Challenge" with The Russell.
This week's episode was the typical Thanksgiving recap episode. Not much to report on, but we did get a look at some extra footage from the season. Some of that footage turned out be curiously entertaining.
The Russell and Ben made an interesting first impression by wearing the weirdest and grossest boxer briefs to date. Recently The Russell has upgraded to a nice swimsuit, but he rocked the thin, gray undies for about five weeks. How he even competed in half the challenges without using up CBS's blurring budget is a mystery to me. Meanwhile, Ben made an interesting choice with short, short yellow shorts that apparently causes whoever wears them to act like a jackass and get voted off early. I'm still waiting for that person on a season to wear like four outfits underneath whatever they are wearing when Probst makes them jump in the water, get off a wagon, etc, to start the game.
Funny scene after the first reward/immunity challenge. Jaison must have gotten picked on by the senior rocket scientist when he was a freshman on the water polo team. Old wounds don't heal I guess....
The Russell rakes over a million per year?!? Seriously? Where can you get paid that much to hunt down hidden jewelry in south Texas? As of now I don't believe him, but if he does, it could hurt him later.
Dave says he wants to get Shambo out of his hair. Could she hide in your hair? That fancy mullet would be hard to cover with anything. But I guess if Dave let his flowing locks down, he might be able to do it. I guess he could always flip it over to make up for what's missing in the front. In fact, if Dave let his hair out, he might have a mullet to rival Shambo's. Here's hoping this season tie breaker is a good ol' fashion mullet-off. (whatever the hell that is.)
OMG...Laura..seriously? I'm sooo glad she's off the show. I'm not a huge Shambo fan but I definitely hadn't guess that Laura had a black piece of dirt where her heart is supposed to be. "Where's our sun?" What a winner. (Honestly though, I thought she seemed nice, so I was either dead wrong or CBS pays it editing department more than The Russell makes)
Nothing noteworthy as far as the outcome of the game goes was shown. I guess I'll be sticking with my predictions from last week. Check it out if you missed it.
