Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Showdown: Gino Is Voted Out
Gino, The Strategist, has been out-strategist to become the latest votee on Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Showdown. It was another blindside, following John's of the Volcano Rugby team. It was not a blindside for me since as we know the obvious votee is never the one, right editing monkeys?
KC and Gino thought they had it in the bag, but as always one of the many no-nos in Survivor is "huwag magpakakampante." True enough, the tandem of Arnold and Mara used the power of Mara's Immunity Bracelet to sway Betong and Mhaey to vote out Gino.
As usual, Stef Prescott continued to be the castaway who is the outcast in the tribe even if she is presumably working with Gino and the majority alliance to vote out Arnold. Stef voted for Arnold, while KC and Gino voted for Mara. This is what happens when players like Stef who are unstable, who appear to be wishy-washy to others. You can't trust these kind of players to vote with you always.
I hope Stef is kept out of the loop until she and her smug ass are voted out of the island. According to Stef, Arnold needs to be voted out because Arnold's character is slowly deteriorating as he advances deeper into the game (well, that's my take on Stef's reason last night). Duh! Is Survivor a test of character? Is it a game of charity? Blindsides, using your power of persuasion and anything at your disposal to
stay alive are par for the course in a game like Survivor.
I have reservations that Arnold, or even Mara, would be ruthless to the exclusion of all others outside the game. But I have no doubt that Stef Prescott is a BITCH and a CUNT of the first order inside and outside of Survivor. If words are knives, Arnold would already be bleeding.
Every time I watch Stef's talking heads I want to reach across the TV and slap her smug ass. And if she rolls her eyes one more time, I wish a bad wind passes through and giver her a permanent ceiling eyes.
I want Arnold or Mara to get away with the title and prizes since the duo have satisfied with their blindside of Carlo, the sanctimonious one, and the smart use of the Immunity bracelet. But since this is Survivor Philippines, the winner will the one who tugs the jury's hearts the most. It is almost never the one who outwits, outplays and outlasts.
