Also, I secretly love Parvati.
She's one of my favorites. Between the completely obvious hitting on Nate and the "Now we're the United States! We're a melting pot!", she cracks me up.
Glad Flicka made it to the merge, she seems like one of those insipid people who yearns to let everyone know that she feels their "struggle." Let the awkwardness begin!
Heh. When she called referred to Sundra a "sister", I half-expected her to be like, "What, a white girl can't say 'sister'? Dude, it's totally cool; one of my neighbors is black. He gives me really good vibrations." During that scene, I also noticed that most of the people didn't know the others' names. So they couldn't have all spent too
much time together, which makes Billy's love confession all the more bizarre.
I couldn't figure out why they all sent Candace either, I figured that they would've sent Cao Boi to make sure he sticks around to annoy the team. Not saying it's a good or bad move, just curious how they all reached that consensus so quickly.
That's what I was thinking, too. I thought for sure Jenny and Brad would be like, "He's on his way out... let's keep him safe so he can continue to annoy the shit out of everyone." Candice seemed like a pretty random person to call out; I wonder if Adam and Parvati were pulling the strings on that, just to protect their friend.
I like that they're already merging -- it makes it easier to "get to know" people, since there are only two tribes to split up screen time, as opposed to four. I like that they started with the smaller tribes because it makes it easier to distinguish people (although with the hyperdiversity this season, it happened much less than usual -- Rebecca and Sundra are the only ones who give me problems, so I'm really glad they were split up) but now that I more or less have everyone straight, I'm glad they mixed it up.
I thought it was weird how much Yul and Becky seemed to trust each other already. I get that they have a lot in common, but their tribe hadn't been to Tribal Council yet, so how could they know the other was really trustworthy? None of the old Pukas (or Raros, for that matter) have had a chance to do anything shady yet. In other Aitu news, Jonathan bugs the shit out of me. But whatever, I don't really care what happens with them because I'm much more into the Raro tribe. Most of my early favorites ended up over there... while I'm pretty indifferent to Jenny, JP is the only one I can't stand. So far, I genuinely like seven of the nine; this has to be some kind of personal "liking people" record.
Aw, I liked Cecilia. Beautiful, too. Did she remind anyone else of Jennifer Lopez... you know, 10 years ago, before she started raiding the closets of various whorehouses throughout Nevada?
