Survivor: Gabon - Episode 6 Recap
On tonight’s episode of Survivor, two Fang players found themselves in terrible positions in the game. Matty and Ace knew that they both have had targets on their back since Day 1 so they did what any good player would do: they aligned with one another.  Meanwhile, over at Kota, Dan was rubbing his tribemates the wrong way by taking extra portions of food.  He claimed that because he weighed more, he deserved more, a comment Corinne neither appreciated nor agreed with.  Dan started out tonight with a big target on his back and he'd need his tribe to continue winning in order to keep his place in the game.

In today’s reward challenge, each tribe member will be tethered to a heavy 200 pound snake. Along the way, if a player gets tired, they can disconnect and opt out. One tribe must travel around the course until they catch the other. Tonight’s reward is: croissants, chocolate éclairs, fruit tarts, coffee, and tea. Sugar, Kenny, Kelly, and Crystal all drop for Fang when Kota begins catching up with them. The entire weight is left on Matty and Ace and Kota quickly and easily catches up with them, winning the reward and further strengthening their tribe.

For tonight’s immunity challenge, each tribe had to divide into 3 pairs and each pair was tethered together through a series of obstacles. At the end of each series were flagpole pieces. The first tribe to get all their pieces back and assemble their flagpole wins. Because Kota had an extra member, Susie decided to sit out of this one. Fang started out with the lead but quickly lost it to Kota. In the last leg, Matty and Kenny pass Dan and Marcus, and the two pairs get back to the mat at almost exactly the same time. Kota was still able to pull it together and grab another win.

At Tribal Council, Crystal gets defensive when Kelly calls her crying a sign of instability. When Ace tries to defend Crystal, Kelly says that his double talk is sickening and tells Jeff that she can’t even explain how much he is playing both sides.  In the end, Fang decides to drop a little more dead weight, voting out Kelly instead of a stronger player, like Ace.  Kelly will talk to BuddyTV in an exclusive interview tomorrow about her experiences in the game.
