Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains


by Gina Scarpa


Last night, on Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains, Boston Rob started to get the feeling that something wasn't right following tribal council. That something is named Russell Hantz. Because Tyson basically voted himself out of the game, Rob is left wondering who betrayed his alliance and if that person is still sharing a tent with him. Oh yes, paranoia has most certainly set in at the villains' camp.


Going into the reward challenge, Colby knows he needs to step it up big time. There have been three tribal councils where he should have been the one going home but somehow, he was spared. Considering the heroes voted out James over him, they must believe that good ol' Colby still has some gas left in the tank.


In the challenge, teams faced off, three on three. They'd have to retrieve a ball and throw it into their basket, while the opposing team tried to stop them. When the villains were told they had to sit a few players, guess who had no problem taking a spot on the bench? You guessed it - Courtney! She will go down in history as the player who made it the farthest without doing a damn thing. The heroes dominate, scoring all three points in a row, and Colby responsible for two of them. Yeah, Superman! You show them that it's not just a fat suit!


For their reward, the heroes are taken to a waterfall, where the enjoy a meal that consists of more than just chocolate (and nutritionists everywhere breathed a sigh of relief). A note during their meal revealed that another hidden immunity idol has been placed back at their camp. Wait a minute... if there's an idol there... then there's an idol at the other camp which means... yup, Russell's somehow going to find it. The heroes agree to find the idol together and use it at the merge against the other tribe. Smart people.


Over at the villains' camp, Russell is working overtime to pull Jerri and Coach into his alliance full-time. He has Parvati and Danielle, Rob has Sandra and Courtney. Coach and Jerri are just sitting in the middle and suddenly find themselves the most important people in the tribe. Russell spins Jerri and she buys it hook, line, and sinker while Coach struggles with the fact that he gave his word to both Rob and Russell. How does a man of honor keep his word to two sworn enemies?


At the immunity challenge, teams will race, one at a time, across a net to retrieve a bag of puzzle pieces. Once six bags have been retrieved, two members must solve it in order to win. You better believe Rob and Sandra are solving that puzzle for the villains, with JT and Amanda going against them. Basically, everyone puts on a good show in retrieving the pieces, with the exception of Courtney, who was forced to participate because the rules of Survivor state that you can't sit out of a challenge twice in a row. The heroes got a head start on their puzzle and never looked back. They win immunity and the villains lose both challenges.


Back at camp, Rob tells Jerri that she needs to do what's best for her and she knows what's right. Does she? Coach tries to push some attention on Courtney, who is the weakest physical player but everyone is just concerned with getting one of the big guns out. Fair enough. If you're Rob or Russell, you don't want the other one getting to the merge.


At tribal council, Russell digs at Rob, saying he wouldn't have had the guys to give his idol up to a fellow alliance member the way he did. There's a debate about loyalty and what it means to everyone. Of course, everyone swears that they're really the loyal ones.


When the votes are read, Courtney is thrown a vote (thanks Coach) and with four votes, Boston Rob is sent out of this game. My all-time favorite player has left and I'm heartbroken!


Probst posed a question to the villains as they were about to head out: Will voting Rob out unite your team or destroy it? Ten bucks says it's the latter.
