This season starts out with two surprises. Well, not really, but two changes to the game. The first thing is that the two tribes will be living in the same camp. The other thing is that it’s men vs women, kind of like on The Apprentice. Good or bad? In my opinion, it’s mostly good. A bunch of women together is a recipe for disaster. They will immediately start bickering, infighting and just making things go wrong. This is what happens with the ladies.
I don’t really know what’s going on with the producers of this show. They separate the tribes and then decide to mix them up and in this episode, they merge everyone back. What is going on? Well, karma is a bitch and Colton gets what he deserves, one of the most painful things that can happen: an almost ruptured appendix. It’s kind of pandemonium after Colton left. Alysa is trying to find her place, while the women are organizing themselves, and the men being none the wiser.
Warning: spoilers ahead.

Everyone voted for Monica except for Christina. Back at camp, Alysha and Colton are laughing about it. Colton tells Christina that she’s going home next. Then Colton calls her a cockroach. If she makes it to the merge, Colton says that Christina will be the first one out.
Shoot, maybe I am an idiot.
Later that night, Alicia and Christina bicker because Alysha won’t make room for her.
Alysha killed me in a dream at the mall.
The tribes get tree mail and it implies that they are playing for something sweet. The challenge is a game that kids play in backyards.
One at a time, they will race to the top of a stack of crates. They will throw a coconut, bounce it off a trampoline and try to hit a target. First tribe to 5 wins. The reward is a trip to an ice cream parlor.
Sabrina sits this challenge out for Salani. The first two pairs of survivors miss the targets completely. The missing streak continues. Kim finally connects. Tarzan takes his time getting up the crates, but he connects. Leif gets the next target. Manano leads 2-1. Colton throws it back to himself. Chelsea connects. It’s tied 2-2. Christina isn’t running back, this makes Colton incredibly mad.
Jay connects one of the furthest targets. Tarzan has trouble getting up, but he connects. It’s 3-3. Kat connects. 4-3. Troyzan connects and wins for Salani.
Salani pigs out on ice cream.
Back at Manano, Colton and Alysha continue to be mean to Christina. While she tries to talk strategy with Jonas and Leif, Alicia sneaks up on her and starts verbally abusing her.
Later, Colton has got a headache. For some reason, Christina is cradling the bastard’s head. What the f*ck is wrong with this girl? Well, at least it helped with her strategy. Colton despises her a bit less now.
Tarzan and Jonas go hunting for some fruits. Then, Tarzan tells Colton that he’s dehydrated. Colton doesn’t care about this.
Colton goes off and lies on the ground for a little cry. Naturally, Christina finds him and gets him back to camp. Jeff arrives with medical. When Dr. Ramona touches him and presses in, Colton’s heart rate doubles. It’s appendicitis.
Karma is a bitch. On top of that, Colton decides to keep the immunity idol as a souvenir. WTF. Alicia is pissed. Colton is out of the game.
Both tribes are heading to tribal tonight.
I don’t have any fingernails. All of the dirt is in my mount right now. It was nutritious but it was disgusting.
Speculation is rife about what will happen.
Jonas, and his annoying fake swear
Alicia asks Tarzan if he will be her friend. He says that he’ll be her daddy and his wife will be her mommy. WTF? Christina asks something similar, and Tarzan says that she would never be his friend.
I do respect you Katrina.
Tarzan to Christina
Christina lets Leif and Jonas know that she’s voting with them for Alicia.
Tarzan tells Leif that Christina is a sycophant. He’s trying to get Leif to vote for Christina.
Both tribes go to tribal. Jeff tells them that Colton was medically evacuated.
OMG, what is that?
Kat about appendicitis
Alysha tells Sabrina that Colton took the idol with him as a souvenir.
I’m more worried about the appendix thing and how to not get mine hurt. Everyone has got theirs out.
Jeff tells them to drop their buffs. The tribes are merged. WTF. The new buffs are black.
