I’m gonna say it… alliances SUCK... This week has shown some series game play. How do any of the younger teams stand a chance in making it through this competition with the oldies ganging up on them?
The target in particular this week was the little cutie Hamish. He certainly didn’t feel loved at Camp. With his sweetheart out bush, Hamish had to face the other teams alone. He was given a serve by Margie in the Quarry Challenge this week, then slapped with a penalty of losing Shannan for the rest of the week. He was ganged up against in Temptation to ensure he didn’t take it and finally, when a light at the end of the tunnel appeared with Michelle coming back, he fell straight below the Yellow Line – was voted out, and had to leave Camp Biggest Loser. But not before a quick kiss from his girlfriend…
This meant a farewell to Shannan as well – with all four Blue Team members now out of the competition (and so early in the competition!!!) I think Shan was dealt a pretty hard blow this year – with James (who took the cash and bailed), Ryan – who really didn’t seem to take the competition seriously, Luke – who was a massive threat – but was later expelled from the competition for breaking the rules, then Hamish – who gave it a good crack - but was ganged up on and given the flick as soon as he dropped below the Yellow Line. Something tells me though, this won’t be the last of Shannan we will see this season!
With the teams now split into the “Old Dogs” and “Young Pups”, the alliances were clearly divided (with the exception of Margie). But being placed on the “Pups” this week didn’t hold Margie back – she made sure that alliance was still firm in place by helping the Old Dogs win the challenge this week.
I have to admit though, alliances aside – the oldies are really dominating the competition this year. They are taking out all the Challenges and Contests (and in turn taking out all the advantages). Although – I don’t know if I would really want to have the knowledge Lydia now has about The Bunker. With Lydia being a control freak in the competition – she now has the ultimate control. I’m thinking the alliances could be broken in the weeks to come – with conversations being now listened to, I think Lydia is going to hear some things about herself and her team mates that she won’t like. Secretly I’m pumped to hear some backstabbing!
The week ended with some competitive cooking followed closely by some competitive flirting. The Old Dogs took out the cooking – but Michelle took out the prize for the best charmer in the competition (don’t worry Hamish – she only has eyes for you!!!) I’m sure he knows that now though, as I’m pretty sure she got to tell him that face to face in their romantic rendezvous at a beautiful restaurant in Manly. Nawwwww.
Until next week lovelies,
