Once again we return to the warm glow of the campfire flames and to the generally useless portion of the show called, “Jeff asks the Tribal Council tribe questions that mean nothing but since there’s less than 10 minutes left in the show I’ll watch anyway to see who gets booted.”
(As I stated in a prior article, these councils supposedly last much longer. If we were to see more of these exchanges so we can better learn about these people, they might be more than just the filler before we learn who gets booted.)
“Robb, straight scoop, what’s your guys’ impression of Chuay Gahn?” Happy people, getting along, good for them, man.
“You guys think you’re stronger than Chuay Gahn?” For sure. Without a doubt. Come on, bro.
“Come on bro? Who’s sitting at tribal council?” Yada yada.
“I’m just saying, you’re not kicking their ass!”
It’s clear that Robb considers a tribe’s strength to be based only on youth and physical capability and that strategy, intellect, and the ability to work as a team mean little to nothing. Then again, not one person from Chuay Gahn can compare to Shii Ann’s brains and to Ken’s athleticism, so if I were asked that question, I’d have responded the same way except that I would’ve added “dude” somewhere in there.
“Stephanie, you were sick the first couple of days, right? Are you contributing as much as anybody else?” She said, yeah she was sick but that now she’s contributing as much as everyone else. And then she said that she’s really proud of them ’cause they were kind of struggling at first because of their survivor mode. In the beginning they were spending so much time on the shelter but they’ve come a long way. They are doing a lot better…
If I’m not mistaken, Stephanie just raised herself up to “person who knows everything far greater than everyone else” and who feels it’s her place to reprimand or compliment them on their menial tasks as compared to hers. Everyone else sort of smiled to themselves and rolled their eyes, wondering how she could be so completely clueless.
He asked Shii Ann if she really thought about wanting to switch tribes. She very astutely lied and said how much she really likes her tribe and how comfortable she is with everyone. Wouldn’t it be fun if she actually spoke the truth? “These guys
suck. I wanted to switch but I knew that I’d probably be voted out if I did.
