When they yelled for Julia and she stepped up it was like they snuck a new cast member into the tribe - Who is she, Where has she been all this time, Has she ever gotten a talking head? The invisible player!
Unless or until said invisible Julia steps up and we see what she's like I'm going to start cheering for Victoria and or Gavin just because. I also like Rick but he seems like a true long shot at this point.
Reem there is still not a single person out there who wants or needs you to be their "mommy". The fact that she's still not only going for that role but forcing it on others and that she thinks she's queen leader of EI beach proves she learned nothing from her initial game play and ouster. The only thing she's managed to do is sulk on how she was wronged and take a big dose of bitter pills. If she gets back in the game it won't even be entertaining chaos (that would be Wendy's role). And yes she "gave" that advantage to Kevin, how can she be unaware that saying hey look what is that will send people grabbing the item, especially Kevin, especially after he ran off to find the items from the first map - she's either completely clueless or doubles down when challenged because she just can't be wrong ever.
People always watch sitcoms that take outrageous things and inflate them for laughs and say "that would never happen in real life". The next time we have a hapless character who can't handle sports like Niles from Frasier or Howard from Big Bang when he was throwing out the first pitch and someone says that's so exaggerated, people don't throw like that in real life, that would never happen...........I'm going to show them a loop video of Wardog throwing those bolas about a foot in front of himself and straight into the ground like a three year old over and over (and over).
And, one last general Survivor rant - the complaining when players actually play; it happens season after season and I've never, ever understood it but there went Chris and, of course bitter entitled Reem again last night when Kevin ran off. Yes it's "fair", no he's not being "sneaky" and nobody is obligated to wait to go searching for anything. Can we remind these people it's a game and only one of them wins, looking for the idol is not sneaking off, getting a map and going for whatever it's leading you to is not screwing your beach mates. That is how the game is played. In general not just this season but over and over I'm tired of seeing and can not at all understand the mind set of the players that complain when someone actually tries to play the game by getting any advantages, immunity or information that they can. It's not a democracy, there's no voting to act as a group so if Kevin lost that vote he'd be compelled to sit at camp and wait and, most important, if you don't want people running off and getting things you want yourself how about not helping them. Rick was just as much at fault for giving away to the group how to fold the first map as Reem was in pointing out the box from the second map. Kevin wants to win, they gave him an opening and he took advantage, that's good game play or, to borrow a very old phrase, you snooze you lose.
