Survivor Africa - Epi 7
Two mixed-up tribes become one and pick a name they can't remember or pronounce. All the old alliances dissolve and Frank pretends he's an elephant. Definitely and interesting episode.
As Samburu comes home from Tribal Council and waits to see what's next, Brandon declares he's overjoyed Lindsey is finally gone. He was "sick of her whining." Maybe there was something wrong with my TV set last episode, but I could have sworn Brandon was bawling like a baby when Lindsey left. Musta been my TV...
Their first piece of Tree Mail indicates something to do with water and showers. It also sounds like an individual challenge (unless Survivor is into group showers now.) As they meet Jeff he announces that they are all one team now and that yes, this immunity challenge is a free-for-all.
The survivors have to stand on a stool with their hand tied to a bucket of water above their head. The person who manages to stay there the longest, without dumping the bucket, wins immunity. Sounds lame, but have you ever fallen asleep with your arm above your head and woken up thinking someone had cut it off? Same reaction here.
It ends up a draw between Teresa and Clarence. Eventually, when it was clear neither would budge and Clarence was fed-up, the two did the old rock, paper, scissors game. Clarence lost, so he dumped his bucket.
Back at the newly merged camp (they chose Boran's digs) the Tribe had to pick a new name. They were even given food for thought - a giant basket of crackers, cheese, fruit and wine. Some of 'em got a little tipsy. Frank chose not to bond and went off to collect firewood and mimic an elephant. This guy is weird with a capital W. As for the new name, they choose the Swahili words for fire and water and call themselves Moto Maji. Problem is no one can say it right - or even remember it.
After the booze buzz wears off, Lex takes it upon himself to tell Clarence "I thought you should know we're booting you." Somehow Lex seems to think this makes him a good guy. Yeah, Ri-ight.
Clarence does get the boot, but a couple people throw their vote Lex's way to prove his good guy routine isn't working on them. It'll be interesting to see the new bonds and backstabbing that happen in the Moto Maji tribe.
I think that Kim J. is going to win!
