Dude, there is still almost 40 minutes left in this episode. This feels like the longest episode ever, and it's only the first one. Enough with the idiots running around in the rain! I want to see a challenge!
Tangdang is the first back from the cargo net with the paddles, and Matsing next, although Russell literally has to pull Zane with him. The girls from Kalabaw are significantly behind, but Jeff (and someone else) catch up during the paddling portion. Tangdang maintains their lead through the swimming and into the puzzle portion, but Kalabaw ekes out a victory at the end, with Tangdang second.
Matsing is going to tribal council, and I predict Russell is going home because he's done nothing but tell people what to do, all the while saying he doesn't want to be the leader.
And back at camp, Russell is still trying to tell people what to do, and how they need to be better at challenges. Ooh, wait, Zane is crumbling. He says he's not physically strong enough to play. But it's just a ruse? I think he's over thinking, well, everything, He says he's playing chess the only way he knows how; I have feeling he's not a very good chess player.
But Russell may still go home, because he's pissed everyone off. And Angie is telling Zane he needs to stay. I can't figure out whether Zane is crazy, or crazy like a fox.
Tribal Council time! Zane continues his theme of not making any sense at all, while still being entertaining. If Russell wants to stay around, he needs to stop talking. It may be too late already.
But no! Zane is just plain crazy, and it's him who is going home. I guess the fun guy who sucks at challenges isn't as valuable as the strong guy who is annoying. I think Zane also screwed himself trying to go all reverse psychology on his teammates when he didn't have to.
Next week: Jonathon goes nuts, and Lisa is playing the unpopular girl on this show.
Credits: Zane completely messed up, and essentially took himself out of the game when he didn't want to go.
