Survivor: Gabon - Episode 5 Live Thoughts
Last week's Survivor provided fans with a great twist when Jeff Probst pulled a tribe switcheroo.  Just to remind everyone, here are the new tribes.  The Kota tribe is now: Marcus, Dan, Charlie, Randy, Corinne, Susie, and Bob. The Fang tribe is now: Matty, Ace, Crystal, Sugar, Ken, Kelly, and GC.  Sugar spent the last few days on Exile Island and has no idea that she'll be joining the Fang tribe, who voted out Jacquie last week.  Jacquie was sent home because players were worried that she was in an alliance with Ace and Sugar, which means there are huge targets on their backs.  I'm expecting Kota to do well tonight as they seem to have the stronger tribe (and a few of my favorite players).  I'll be here all hour and I hear one Survivor almost quits when hunger gets the best of them.  My money's on a female from Fang.  Keep refreshing and post your thoughts, too!

Ace is hoping to pull a coup de grace.  I hate people that use the phrase "coup de grace".  I'll only allow it because he's not a pretentious American.  He's a pretentious Brit but the accent makes me forgive him a little.  What can I say?  I'm a sucker for accents! 

Crystal's looking to get rid of Sugar, feeling that she has the idol.  Honestly, if Sugar COULDN'T find the idol in all the time that she was out there, then she's an idiot and if the players don't believe that she has the idol, then they're idiots. 

Holy crap!  There's a giant elephant near the Fang camp.  I would be so scared!  Ace and Matty go looking for it!  WHAT ARE THEY DOING?!

Today's reward is an herb garden.  That's awesome.  There's a whole lotta fruit throwing and smashing in this challenge.  Fang is ahead right now - who woulda thought?  As usual, Kota wins, coming from behind and decides to send Sugar again.  So mean, Kota.  So mean.

Ah, I was right.  A female Fang tribe member is caving under the pressure: GC.  Get a grip, dude.  He is now missing minutes before an immunity challenge.  Ugh, what a baby.  They found him.  That was a lot of excitement over nothing for a minute.

For immunity, balls are rolled down a giant hill while blindfolded players from the opposing tribe try to stop them from going into the goals.  The tribes are even until the very last throw and Kota wins again.  Man, Fang is in trouble!!

GC wants to leave.  I'd be shocked if Fang didn't vote him out tonight.  Look at that cheshire cat smile on Ace's face!  He just won 3 more days in the game.  Thanks, GC. 

Uh oh... seriously, some players are so dirty.  You shouldn't go through someone else's bag.  Fang just found Sugar's idol when she wasn't looking and now they want to blindside her. 

At tribal council, Sugar doesn't play the idol.  Here are the votes: GC, GC, Kelly, GC, GC.  That's enough.  GC is the 5th person voted out of the game and tomorrow, he'll talk to BuddyTV about his experiences on Survivor!
