Survivor: Fiji Episode 11 Thoughts

Let me just get this out of the way: Thank goodness Alex is still around. After this week's farce, I am looking forward to next week when Alex concocts another scheme, only to have it blow up in his face. Last week was the attempt to use the immunity idol, only to have Earl et al get rid of Edguardo. This week, they tried to blackmail Yau Man with revealing that he had the immunity idol. This was foiled by Yau Man...revealing to his team that he had the immunity idol and Alex and Mookie attempted to blackmail him with that knowledge. The fact that they went through Yau Man's bag to find it horrified the team, and the secret that Yau Man had the idol was overlooked. Not to mention that Alex took out the one person he could count on to vote for him should he make the final two. It's been a banner last two episodes for him.

So a hearty Huzzah! to Alex. Maybe this week he can come up with a plan of telling everybody that he wants to leave in an attempt to actually convince people to keep him. I'd imagine that this would work out as well as his other schemes.

I have to admit, after Boo went down and started to yell about his ACL, I thought we might see an injury removal. Instead Boo soldiered on, which is pretty impressive. I guess he's gone in two weeks though.

Meanwhile, the other immunity idol is officially out in the open, which means Yau Man can probably cruise into the final 6, when he might use it. At the same time, it seems as though Cassandra and Stacy were rather not shocked by this, and were more angry about Alex and Mookie's sneakiness. Maybe they won't even think about the idol going forward.

Who goes next week? Alex, of course. Even though we can remember the times when somebody needed to win immunity to stay on the island and did, more often than not they don't win and get the boot. So, sorry Alex.
