Does Sherri remind anybody else of Sandra Bullock? I don’t just mean the physical resemblance.
Last week, Sherri pulled off The Blind Side, wresting control of the Fans tribe from the Cool Kids. This week, things have gotten Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
The problem is, Shamar’s a real Demolition Man. He shouts at Reynold and shouts at Eddie. He shouts at Matt, who’s just saved him. He shouts that he didn’t get the diving mask. He shouts that it’s raining.
Shamar may be a military veteran, but he acts like a child lashing out for negative attention. When people aren’t exclusively talking about Shamar, he threatens to quit.
Sherri does her best to play Miss Congeniality. But at this point, you have to wonder if the damage Shamar does to tribe cohesion outweighs his strategic and physical benefit. The Fans must guess there’s a swap coming soon. Staying strong against the Favorites is their only chance.
