Survivor Micronesia: Episode 7, "Like a Wide-Eyed Kid in the Candy Store" Recap
Silly NCAA Tournament.  Because of basketball, Survivor had to air on a special night tonight which meant that I couldn't watch it live because of Top Model.  When this is over, I still have Idol and Big Brother eliminations to catch up on.  It's a very busy Wednesday night, to say the least.   Moving on...

Tonight's episode of Survivor kicked off with the idiotic Malakal tribe members discussing killing a chicken.  Chicken gives them protein, they say.  Yeah, so do eggs.  Ozzy tries to make an executive decision to keep the chickens alive but that just tips Tracy off to the fact that he's the leader and he probably needs to go.  That target on his back keeps getting bigger every day, doesn't it?

For tonight's reward challenge, four tribe members were blindfolded while two other members used verbal directions to guide them as they pushed money stones through a course.  Along the way, they had to crush tiles that had smaller money stones in it.  The stones would then solve a rotating cog puzzle.  The winners would receive a (product placement alert) Herbal Essence Great Escape Spa trip.  Cirie and Tracy guided the Malakal tribe to a victory.  They sent Jason back to Exile Island as well as Tracy from their own tribe.  She had to miss out on the reward challenge.

While the Malakal members basked in all the glory of soap and fresh sruit, Kathy started to slowly unravel back at the Airai camp.  The harsh conditions were too much for her and she told her fellow tribemates that she needed to go home.  Jeff Probst showed up soon after and tried to talk things out with her but there was no changing her mind.  She tearfully said goodbye to everyone and boarded a boat to head home.

At the immunity challenge, one member of each tribe had to race across a floating bridge carrying one end of a piece of rope.  At the platform, they clipped the rope to a large puzzle piece and hang on as the rest of the tribe cranked them back to shore.  Once all 5 pieces were collected, they had to form a puzzle in the form of a perfect square.  For the third time in a row, and again thanks to Eliza, Airai won immunity, sending Malakal to tribal council.

At the Malakal camp, it came down to Erik and Ozzy for elimination.  The women were divided.  While Cirie and Tracy seemed sure that Ozzy was the one to cut, Amanda and Ami weren't totally sold on turning out their ally.  At tribal council, Ozzy was not thrilled with the fact that Tracy called him the leader of the tribe.  He didn't want to be seen as the person that held the power but that basically is what he has been around camp.  In the end, it was Tracy who was voted out and sent home. 

Tomorrow, Tracy will talk to BuddyTV in an exclusive interview.  Don't miss it!
