Dang! Super excited when I saw the announcement of the new season back in December! Especially knowing that Rupert and Boston Rob will be back!
Episode 01 got me cheering in my own bedroom while the sister and mother are out there cleaning the sister’s room 😡 And yes, I have yet to start on mine.
The first reward challenge was for flint!
The Challenge: 2 members from each tribe will race to a designated box in a race course. They will then dig for a black pouch and prevent the other tribe from getting the pouch back to their placemat.
Casualty: Both from Heroes tribe. One got a dislocated shoulders, the other got a broken toe! OUCH!
Me thinks: Survivor sort of remind me of camps. Especially the PSL camp where we had to protect our candles while trying snuff out the candles from the other teams.
Here’s the thing. For this challenge, you need stamina – a) to run to the box, b) to dig for the pouch, c) to tackle whoever that has the pouch and d) to run back to your placemat with the pouch.
I think the Villains realised that so towards the end, they only sent one person to dig while the other wait. But I was thinking, a little more tricking might work.
Get all two to dig, when one found the pouch, signal to the other. The other can then fake that he found the pouch. By which time, the opposing team will be on the player who supposedly “found” the pouch. So while they are distracted, it buys the person some time to dig out the pouch in peace and run.
Yes, the team members watching at the sideline might alert the others. But by the time they realised it, the players from the opposing team would have been worn out from tackling the fake one. So might just work!
That’s my theory! 😛
Who won: The Heroes! WHEEEE~
Sidenote: Dang! Watching girls fighting girls is actually quite interesting. Meoooww!
*off to clean the room. will watch the rest of the episode tonight!*
