Ready to go, Ep4 IC
Somewhat less than pleased with his tribe's Ep4 IC performance
The new Raro tribe attends its first Tribal together
Perhaps not as wise to Jenny's hilarious plans as he should be
Attentive Raros, pre-Ep5 RC
Awaiting weight, Ep5 RC
What most of Probst's dreams look like
Raro wins for once!
Who are these people coming into our camp?
Listening to Probst, prior to the Ep5 IC
Thanks a lot, Rebecca
Angry Raros, post-Ep5 IC
Okay, THIS time we're actually gonna vote out Stephannie. I hope.
Looking forward to getting yanked off a pole, Ep6 RC
Apparently getting yanked off a pole wasn't all it's cracked up to be
Giving good but unheeded advice, Ep6
Raros, about to vote off Cristina
Happy to exchange a role in voting out Cristina for some lamb
Talking about writing down all the juicy gossip he's picking up
Listening to Flica complain about being out of the Aitu loop, Ep7
Forced to sit out the Ep7 RC AND listen to Flica cheering?
Well, at least I'm back at Raro now. Time to fish.
Raro dudes arguing over who has the longest pole, Ep7 IC
Raro wins immunity!
Ho hum. Another challenge (Ep9 RC). No big deal.
Oh. Hey. Our tribe just got bigger.
Watching new tribemate Candice lower herself into the barrel
Let's roll! Ep9 RC
We've made a huge mistake.
Not loving Penner
Go, extra-large team!
Ep9 tribal council
Ready to watch Raro lose the Ep10 RC
Or not watch, as the case may be
In camp with Rebecca on her last day, Ep10
Up against Ozzy in a swimming race. This should go well, Ep10 IC
It didn't, but at least they got a shiny bottle for their troubles
Well, I've voted against every one of the Hiki women, except Rebecca. Time to finish the set.
Vote someone else out? So we're not merging, then?
Oh, right. But we can still vote against Penner, at least
Yeah, Probst. There are five of us now, thanks a lot.
It's a merge! Everybody hug Yul!
A slightly better use of bottles
Happy to be back in camp with new guests. Also beer.
Broin' down with Ozzy
I don't like the looks of those poles, Ep11 IC
Not as comfortable as it looks, Ep11 IC
Still grabbing some pole
The end is nigh
It's cool Ozzy is safe, but we've gotta take out Yul
Right. Raro's camp has long been a site of excessive thinking
We're sticking to our tribal alliances, Jeff. No worries here.
Yul and Becky, sitting in a tree... ha ha!
Uh... can I take that back?
The end. Snuffed, Day 27 (Episode 11)
