Tyrone was voted off of the new look Espada tribe last week, after lecturing his newer, younger tribemates about the rules at camp. He also opposed them cooking a chicken and in his exit interview stated: "It was perceived that I was the daddy." Wasn't it just a few weeks ago when Jimmy Johnson was voted out, and Marty claimed, "Let's see how the tribe does when they lose their daddy." Why is this season so hellbent on getting rid of daddies? They're really keepin' it "100" out there, with anyone who tries to be a leader.
If you missed my thoughts on last week's episode, check it out here... especially if you need an explanation on what "keepin' it 100" even means...
So after Tyrone's exit, and the tribal mix-up, it was an interesting week in the world of Survivor:
Full Episode Recap of last week's Episode 5: "Just when you think you have the game in your hand, that's normally when you can start packing... Marty's last humble statement has him saying, "It would take something extraordinary to disturb my plans." And wouldn't you know it, something extraordinary happens next.
Exit interview with Tyrone Davis: When asked if he felt relieved when Marty was switched to the La Flor Tribe, he resonded, "Not at all. The total opposite. I don't feel like Marty had control of the tribe. Marty probably made you think that, or that's how it's portrayed on TV. In my opinion, Marty didn't have control of the [Espada] Tribe, but I didn't ask for control myself either."
As reported at RobotCeleb.com, Tyrone made some more waves in other exit interviews, claiming allegations of racism. According to RobotCeleb: "Tyrone said in an interview this week that there are some heavy racial overtones running through the Espada tribe. He gave a few very pointed examples. In one example he said that he and Holly were laying next to each other in the shelter and she said to him, 'I’ve never slept next to a brother before.'"
On a lighter and much more comical note, former Survivor Rob Cesternino's Rob Has a Podcast featured Tyrone Davis as well as Deena Bennett, from Survivor: Amazon.
PopWatch: In a shorter-than-normal weekly installment of Jeff Probst's Blog, he plays a "Tell the Truth" game with readers... for example, he writes: "Tell the Truth... You’re a little glad the switch happened because now maybe the challenges will get a bit more aggressive… and oh yeah, the Medallion of Poooowwwer is gone!"
For those who can't get enough Survivor spoilers, as I reported last week, there have been some new rumors regarding Season 22 of Survivor. In what appears to be a Boston Rob vs. Russell season. SurvivorFever has more scoop and spoilers on other rumored castmates, including another known player outside of the world of Survivor...
Moving into tonight's episode, entitled "Worst Case Scenario," the CBS website reveals that it will be a "double tribal council," with each tribe voting someone out tonight. In addition, here's the episode synopsis from CBS:
"One of the game's most prominent masterminds targets two foes and sets a plan in motion to oust one of them, along with an immunity idol, in one of the most memorable tribal councils of the season."
More memorable than Shannon asking Sash if he's gay? More memorable than... well, I guess that was the only other memorable tribal this season... but still, more memorable than that??? Can't wait! Survivor airs tonight at 8:00 EST on CBS.
