Parvati Shallow Breaks Down ‘Survivor: Second Chance': The Playing Field Is Evened Out


It’s protected to contend everybody is a bit relieved that challenge-dominating Joe is out of a game, and now a personification margin is some-more even. While we know many fans, myself included, are blank Joe’s fabulous, issuing mane, we have to acknowledge it will be some-more fun examination hurdles that anyone can win. 

So, let’s get to it. 

The prerogative defence is a repeat of one that Keith won in his prior season, and examination him fly by a ropes course, entertainment only adequate wire to give him space to finish a bag toss, we see only how astray this is. Not to minimize Keith’s ferocity in challenges, though it appears that a wire entertainment is a pretence to win this, and carrying competed and won this defence before gives Keith a ultimate advantage. 

After destroying everybody in a challenge, Keith chooses Kelley to join him on a many implausible prerogative of all time, a outing to Siem Reap to be sanctified by monks and to nap in a ancient temples. Now this is a prerogative value fighting for, and when Keith gets to select another actor to join him, I’m astounded that no one begs for it. Keith stares during a belligerent and picks Spencer. 

Jeff, with a pinnacle curiosity, contingency know what only went down in Keith’s mush-ball brain. In his try to assuage Jeff, Keith points to Jeremy and garbles about saying Val and afterwards looks during Tasha and totally blanks on her name, mumbling something about her cousin and how tough that was. 

Say what??

This deteriorate of Survivor is one of a best I’ve ever seen in regards to only how many these people are going through. we consider a fast-paced inlet of this game, and being beaten down by a elements and not eating enough, is unequivocally holding a toll. 

What happened to all those hulk clams that we were collecting in a beginning, Kimmi? Was Monica right in wanting to allotment a ocean’s annuity for a finish game? We haven’t seen them eating anything though rice for a past dual episodes, so we consider Kimmi might be woeful her choice to eat all a food adult front. We’ll never know what’s going on in Kimmi’s head, however, given she simply does not speak. Her large speak final week about pulling together an all-girls fondness has fizzled and is not even on a radar anymore. Sometimes we forget Kimmi’s even here — until we have a shock like Tasha’s near-death knowledge during a shield challenge. 

The shield defence is severe for everyone. Spencer, after his feast and a good night’s nap during a Angkor temples, is racing out front — until he face-plants into a side of a vessel and has to lapse to a start. I’m wincing any time we see Spencer take another digger in his unfortunate try to win. It all pays off in a finish when Spencer takes 15 seconds to vanquish this insanely formidable nonplus and win immunity. Seriously, we comprehend that we am no nonplus master, though we attempted that nonplus in San Juan Del Sur when we went down with press, and after 10 minutes, we still didn’t even come tighten to removing it. This is a outrageous feat for Spencer. He’s only proven himself a force to be reckoned with during challenges, and he’s warranted a pretension of Puzzle King of Cambodia. No one will kick Spencer during a nonplus from here on out. You symbol my words. 

While Spencer is creation discerning work of a puzzle, Tasha is still in a H2O — looking in need of critical assistance. The underwater reserve group rushes to her assist and drags her onto a height to asses her need for medical care. She’s visibly jarred and coughing adult a lot of water. This is scary. 

It’s a second time we’re saying clever contestants’ bodies give out during a challenge. Joe’s physique crumbled in final week’s shield challenge, and now Tasha’s physique is unwell from exhaustion. These people are giving all they have to this game. And, any one of them will give all to get to a end. 

While they’re all personification their hardest, not everybody has an equal shot during winning. Abi believes she’s unequivocally beefing adult her Survivor résumé, and notwithstanding meaningful that people wish to take her to a finish given they consider they can kick her, she thinks she’s got what it takes to win. This is crazy talk. we like Abi, though she has no shot during winning this game. She’s played erratically and done people uncomfortable. She did have some energy in a commencement of a game, though we haven’t seen her creation any vital moves given then. All of a strategizing credit contingency go to Kelley Wentworth for removing out Joe final week and saving Abi. 

So, for this genealogical council, will people be targeting Keith given he’s a defence threat, Abi given she’s a hazard to go to a finish or Tasha given she’s so tighten to Jeremy and Kimmi?

I have to give credit to these contestants. Just when we consider we know who’s parsimonious with whom and that approach a vote’s going to go, I’m surprised. Spencer and Jeremy start any morning off with a coffee travel and plan talk. They demeanour super close, though Spencer has incited on Jeremy and Jeremy has tricked Spencer’s trust. How can anyone know who’s truly infallible when they all seem so close? 

Which “we” will it be??

Trust is so nuanced in this game. Kelley and Keith trust Spencer given they only done a understanding with him on a prerogative to opinion out Tasha. But, when Tasha approaches Spencer with a defence to give a fans a best show, Spencer is sold. At this point, it’s reduction about trust and some-more about a bigger picture. What will a fans want? A boring, predicted final three? Or will Spencer give a people that voted him behind in a diversion what they wish — an sparkling final show?

With this argument, Tasha wins Spencer’s opinion for this genealogical council, promulgation Abi packing. 

Who knows what will occur subsequent week as we cruise into a final episodes of this pretentious season? One thing is certain, Kelley Wentworth will many positively have to play her idol, and we can design some some-more fireworks during genealogical council. 

Giddy up, Survivor!
