Survivor All-Stars Notes - Ep #15

[Complete set of my Survivor All Star Notes]

Posted after Ep #15, May 6, 2004. This post, and its comments, may contain spoilers....

Notes written while watching the episode:

>> Storm clouds at the beginning

>> Pickup Truck/Night at the Movies Reward Challenge

Jeff: "In seasons 1-7, the person who won the car has never won Survivor."

Round One: balance walks - Rupert eliminated first

Round Two: belly crawl/puzzle - Jenna eliminated

Again, Rob is good at puzzles.

Round Three: catapult into basket - Big Tom eliminated

Rob and Amber into the final round. Is this the first time we've ever seen these two go head to head? (no pun intended... heh heh)

Round Four: rope climb/rope walk/cable slide...

Rob didn't appear to hold back at all to let Amber keep up.

Boston Rob wins the car. He picks Amber to go along with him. Big surprise.

Rob seems SO HAPPY to have won the car.

>> The movie is "Lord of the Flies". Harsh.

>> Oh, and by the way. Amber gets a car too.

Rob: "What do we have behind door #3 Jeff?"

>> Later, Amber reveals to group that she won a car. That could be a big mistake.

>> Rob and Amber brought back candy, but then took a share!!!

>> Rupert trying to organize Tom-Jenna-himself against Rob. Rob knows this, so he instigates a fight between Rupert and Tom. Rob is a genius! As I recall, Rob was good at this in the Marquesas too. He would get people fighting with each other. He was very good at sowing FUD, Fear-Uncertainty-Doubt. (Maybe afterward he can get a job at Microsoft.)

>> Immunity Word Scramble

Remember, Rob has shown himself to be good at puzzles.

Amber takes lead, but can't figure the final solution... Rob comes from behind to figure out the puzzle.

Rob wins Immunity. He's guaranteed Final Four.

>> Rob-Amber romancing Tom... Tom: "I'm just a pawn. I'll vote however you tell me"... Tom insists that he's with them, and they agree to vote for Jenna...

>> Tribal Council

Cathy cleans up real nice.

Amber repeats what she said earlier, "I can smell the money." Lex and ShiiAnn roll their eyes.

Big Tom voted out! Big surprise! Amber and Rob betrayed Tom. Tom turns, and stares back, to give Rob (?) a last look.

I'll see the votes in a moment, but right now I'm thinking that maybe, after all that, Jenna voted with R&J. Let's see.

Both Jenna AND Rupert voted with R&J. The big four alliance held together.

In retrospect it seems that the whole thing, with R&J getting Tom to say that he'd vote with them, was probably a ploy to distract Tom from the fact that he was being set up. And Rob setting Tom and Rupert at each other's throats made it possible for Rupert to vote for Tom.

>> The coming attraction for next week said, "A surprise so big it will stun everyone. We guarantee it."

>> So that's the Final Four. Rob-Amber-Rupert-Jenna.

Yay Rupert!... Rupert has come a long way since the underground hut...

The last of the original final fours is gone... original finish of the FF: 6-8-8-10... Rob was the poorest finisher of the FF... Two men, two women...

>> Don't forget, the finale and reunion show is on SUNDAY night.
