Survivor Africa - Epi 6

The slack-off at Samburu continues, Lindsey's past is revealed and Boran's chickens aren't exactly egg-laying machines. That's this week's Survivor Africa in a nutshell... err... eggshell.

Instead of being smart little slackers and trying to bond with their new members, Samburu tribemates Brandon, Lindsey and Kim P. are still blowing off the other members, and any chores. When they meet Boran for the Reward Challenge, the slackers realize that their leader, Silas, has been given the boot.

The Reward Challenge is a mental exercise. The teams have to sit on the top row of some bleachers and answer questions about Africa. Every time they get one right, they move down a row. The first team to hit the ground, hits the buffet table - stacked with sandwiches, cookies and Mountain Dew. Samburu wins the chow - but that isn't their only reward. The older members catch some hand signals from Boran. A big "L" and four fingers. No, Boran isn't making obscene gestures - they are trying to let Samburu newbies know that Lindsey (the big "L") has four votes against her. Sneaky huh? Kelly and Lex get it all confused and think it's Brandon that has the votes.

The Immunity Challenge involves archery - an old Survivor tradition, just like Mountain Dew. Each team must hit a bunch of targets with flaming arrows. The first team to hit all their targets wins immunity. This challenge is amusing - especially when Brandon drops the flaming arrow near his foot and sqeauls like a rabid mouse. It also made me giggle when that drill-sergeant know-it-all Frank couldn't hit a target. It's cool to see Kim J. hit a target. Nice can only take you so far, and this chick needed to start performing.

So it's Samburu's turn to boot someone - and you know it's gonna end in a tie. The key is whether Tom, Kelly and Lex will figure out who in Samburu has votes against them. They basically tell Brandon they will vote for him - to which he barely bats an eyelash. His lack of concern, and maybe even Lindsay's sudden butt-kissing/side-switching, are probably what makes them smarten up and vote for Lindsey afterall.

The tie is between Lindsey and Tom. Immediately Lindsey tries to give Jeff her torch. If there was ever any doubt in their head that she maybe isn't the one with the votes, she clears it up right then. In the end, the vote remains deadlocked and Lindsey, with four previous votes, gets her torch snuffed. The funniest part is when Tom and Lindsey were supposed to make a plea to change people's minds. Lindsey says it 's okay if she gets booted, cuz she'd be leaving with her pride. Umm... Sorry Lins, but no, actually you lost that a couple episodes back when you were freakin' on everybody's head.

    Boot Someone from Samburu - Vote!

    • I'd boot Brandon - he's a wimp.
    • I'd boot Kim P. - She's a slacker.
    • I'd boot Tom - he's annoying.
    • I'd boot Lex - his tattoos scare me.
