Survivor Guatemala: Brianna Voted Off
Tonight on Survivor, the Nakum (Team Bobby Jon) tribe continued to kick ass. Despite a truly obnoxious howler monkey making its home around camp, Nakum trounced Yaxha (Team Steph) in both the reward and immunity challenge.
That's fine by me, as Yaxha is all touchy-feely and Nakum is funny and tough. Nakum is also brave, as they tried to beat the extreme heat of Guatemala by taking dips in the croc-infested waters. At this rate I don't know when Nakum will go to Tribal Council, but it looks like when they do Margaret might be a target. Sure, she saved their butts at the start, but now the strong men of the tribe resent her for being too bossy. I'd like to see a Survivor where a woman can win as the strong leader of a tribe, like Tom did last year. I won't hold my breath.
In one of the most entertaining immunity challenges ever, teams played a Mayan ball game that was pretty much just a variation on three-on-three basketball. The Yaxha men did a good job against Nakum and scored a couple of baskets, but the Nakum women ruled, particularly after Yaxha's Amy sprained an ankle.
Brianna, in particular, was useless. She basically stood away from the ball and made sure to not get involved in the action. She was so the girl who stands in right field at a baseball game and prays that no one hits the ball her way. While you might be able to hide on a baseball diamond, it's awful hard to do so on Survivor. At the end, both Lydia and Brianna incurred the wrath of Stephenie when they didn't know how to run a pick. Personally, I think Steph was being a bit unreasonable. That's not exactly common knowledge.

|Since this was my first recap of the season, here's who I like:
Judd: tough, no-nonsense great at challenges and he has a short fuse which makes him entertaining
Brandon: my pre-show and now during the show favorite. funny, funny guy
Bobby Jon: didn't watch last season until the end, so this is my first exposure to him. I loved how he grabbed his teammates and lifted them into the air after Nakum won the reward challenge
Brooke: level-headed and totally non-annoying in the reward challenge
that's really about it. on Yaxha, I guess Brian might be okay because he's actually thinking about winning Survivor rather than just winning the next challenge.
