“Early on in this game, I made myself the villain.”
– Phillip Sheppard, Survivor: Redemption Island
Oh lucky day! The Specialist has been neutralized!
In a way, all of us has a Phillip to face. For some, shyness might be their Phillip. For the Three Amigos, their Phillip is an overbearing former federal agent (?), who wants to vote them off Survivor.
But as sure as their names are Malcolm, Eddie and Reynold, on Wednesday the Amigos conquered their own personal Phillip – who also happened to be the actual Phillip!
Amigos, Amigos Everywhere
Wednesday night, we finally saw the Three Amigos as god intended them: no catty dominatrices, no 40-something New Yorkers. Just three handsome bros, winning challenges, finding idols and bro-ing down.
How amazing was that tribal council? When Stealth R Us was at their most overconfident, the Amigos took out their boss. First Reynold wins immunity; then Malcolm finds another idol; then at tribal council, he whips out BOTH idols?
Have we ever seen such chaos? Nobody even listened to Jeff as they tripped over themselves to formulate a plan.
