Survivor recap: Worst Tribe Ever?

The Brains tribe sinks to a new low, losing to a tribe that was trying to lose to them

BRAINIACS OR LAMEIACS? Yes, they lost again. TWICE!

Which is exactly why Tasha and Kass cut her loose. Would they have made the same decision had they known a tribe mix-up was coming up next (as seen in next week’s preview)? Perhaps not. But you can’t assume that is happening and put all of your (or Alexis’) eggs in that basket. You have to play to win and win now. However, is it just me or did Spencer’s quote after the vote of “I’m going to show you you made the right decision. I’m with you one hundred percent” feel like a bit of ominous foreshadowing? We shall see.

At least my pick to win it all (Spencer) is still alive…barely. I knew I was taking a huge risk picking that dude seeing as he was the low man on the totem pole of such an awful tribe, but maybe he can now act as a swing vote in a newly formed tribe. Or maybe he’ll just be voted off. Either way, we have a whole new game with the switcheroo and the timing seems pretty good for it seeing as how otherwise, the next boots from each tribe were looking a little obvious (Morgan, Cliff, and Spencer).

But enough about next week. We’re not even done with this week. To complete your weekly training, start with the exclusive deleted scene from last night’s episode in the video player below. Once you’re done with that, also make sure to check out my weekly Q&A with Jeff Probst, as well as our exit interview with J’Tia, which will be up Thursday afternoon and is sure to be…interesting. And for non-stop Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.

But now it’s your turn: Would you have kept J’Tia or Spencer? Does throwing a challenge make you as insane as it makes me? And where does the Brains tribe rank on the list of worst tribes ever? Hit the message boards to let us know, and I’ll be back next week with another scoop of the crispy!
