'Survivor: Nicaragua': What the heck just happened?
Tonight’s episode of Survivor: Nicaragua was turned upside down when not one, but two people threatened to quit the game. But who were they and did they actually go through with it? My full recap will be up at midnight (UPDATE: Click over to read Dalton’s full Survivor recap), but if you’ve already seen the episode and can’t wait to sound off, then read on after the jump for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Wednesday’s episode of Survivor: Nicaragua.]
After a reward challenge that also doubled as a promotional spot for a new Jack Black movie, NaOnka and Kelly both announced their intention to quit the game. Aware that this would severely compromise the rest of the episode, in addition to how the rest of the season would play out, host Jeff Probst convinced the two to at least wait it out until an impromptu Tribal Council that evening. However, not even a screening of Gulliver’s Travels or a pep talk from Holly could convince them to stay, and both NaOnka and Kelly quit at that night’s Tribal. But perhaps even more shocking than the quitting was Probst not tossing their torches into the fire. Not only that, but the two quitters were still allowed to join the jury and vote for the winner.
What do you think? Should Probst have even snuffed their torches? And should NaOnka and Purple Kelly be allowed to vote for a winner even though they quit? I say no way! What do you say? Hit the message boards and weigh in. And for a good laugh, check out my pre-game interviews with NaOnka and Kelly below, where they seem downright giddy about the experience that was about to do them in.
