Old and New Bonds is the ninth episode of Survivor: Borneo.

StoryEdit

Previously On... Survivor: Food was scarce, rice was being rationed... And Rich was still the only one providing fish. 21 And so is Greg-- he cut his play-kitten Colleen loose. And made a move on Rich. The Reward Challenge brought videos from home... Except for Jenna. And at Tribal Council... Last week, Greg was voted off. Eight castaways remain. Who will be voted off tonight?

Jeff Probst


Day 25Edit

On day twenty-five, Richard and Sue celebrated their position in the game, whilst Kelly’s trust in the Tagi alliance started to waver. The remaining Pagongs felt disgusted for the lying incident at the previous night’s Tribal Council.

Outright lying is absolutely essential, especially when you have a host like Jeff, who's as bold as to ask "Well, so Sue, tell me, is there an alliance?" What a question.

Richard Hatch


You think I'm going to come out and say "Oh, yeah, we got four of us voting up against all you guys. We're going to knock you all down to the end." Come on.

Susan Hawk


Those people flat out lied in front of a national television audience. I mean, they want a million bucks and they're going to get it... And I loved Jeff's question "Is, uh, a deserving person going to win this money?" The answer to that question is "no."

Colleen Haskell


This whole alliance thing is getting too stupid and too crazy. If we stick with it, it's just like lining lambs to the slaughter. Who goes next? Who goes...? like, that's no fun. Yeah, I don't like it. I-I'm not happy playing the game that way. If I'm going to win, if I'm really going to be the last Survivor, if I'm really going to survive and really do this, then it has to be on my own.

Kelly Wiglesworth


Meanwhile, while Richard was away fishing, Rudy, Gervase and Sean started to notice that Richard may have a good position in the game by being the tribe’s provider. In a confessional, Sean realized that Richard might use his fishing skills as his crutch so that the tribe keeps him longer and don’t vote him out. But Richard rebutted in another confessional that his tribe provider position has nothing to do with the game, and he stressed that his strategic approach to the competition gets him by every day.

I love Rich, I really do. He's been a great asset to this camp, but he is a little immature in his motives at times. He's very protective about spearing fish and he brings it up at every Island Council: "I'm catching fish. Don't vote me off." It's an insecurity aspect to him.

Sean Kenniff


The last Island Tribal Council when I was talking about, um... "I'll be staying around here because I'm providing fish" was an outright blatant lie. I'm staying around here 'cause I'm bright. It has nothing to do with catching fish. Catching fish makes people happy, but that's not why they're voting me here. They're not voting me off because I'm not letting them.

Richard Hatch


Later, Colleen felt uncomfortable when Richard started to prepare the fish for cooking (i.e. scaling the fish and finally slaying the stingrays).

Do you see them bringing these stingrays and stuff in? They're, like, still flapping around and they take this dull knife, and chop off their head. It's disgusting. If I choose to watch my dinner that came from the sea be killed or not be killed, I would rather not watch it be killed.

Colleen Haskell


While cooking the fish, Richard got irritated when Rudy haplessly cooked their food, with most of the catch either became half-cooked or overcooked. And for revenge, Richard decided to stop fishing for a while so that his tribemates can fully appreciate his contributions to the camp.

When Rich came in with a fish, I said to Rudy, "I should go and stoke that fire up." And Rudy's, like, "Oh, no, no, no, that's good enough. It's hot enough," and it wasn't hot enough.

Susan Hawk


The fish is tough to cook because they cooked a little bit and then they cooled off and they had to start the fire back up and cook the fish again, so Rich is sort of irritated.

Susan Hawk


Rudy's clueless when it comes to fish, and, um, you know, really ruined it. Nobody knew what to do with cooking the fish and so it sits here and it sits half on the heat, and it sits over there and it gets turned over halfway and it doesn't, and so it's half-cooked and overcooked and undercooked and half of the fish, half of the three rays were wasted... and that infuriates me.

Richard Hatch


So I was sitting there, just pissed off, really frustrated. I don't want anybody around I don't want anybody near me when I'm frustrated, and people are sitting there, "What's wrong?" and that just makes it worse.

Richard Hatch


I probably won't get fish actually for a little while now, anyway, because they need to appreciate it. I'm bringing in too many right now. I brought in a bunch yesterday and a bunch today and so we need to take a break and let them kind of hunger for it again.

Richard Hatch


Colleen vented her feelings in a confessional, stating that Richard should stop being a know-it-all.

So many times Rich opens his mouth, and I just want to be, like, "Oh, be quiet over there in the corner. You're not making any sense, and you think you're so smart and you're... just go home, and go get your liposuction and go catch more fish, 'cause you're bugging me." You know, he thinks he's so above everybody and is full of baloney, really.

Colleen Haskell


With much of the fish wasted and Richard still bitter about the wasted fish, Jenna, Colleen, Sue and Kelly decided to catch fish on their own, and much to their surprise, they caught a huge one. Upon going back to camp, the guys (including Rich), were speechless about the women's feat.

The hardest part now is... (sighs) ...the food. We're hungry and Rich is the only one that can fish. We've gone fishing in the morning. We've gone in the afternoon... at night. We're not catching any fish. It bothers me that I can't get my own food, that I have to rely on someone else.

Kelly Wiglesworth


We caught a fish today, finally-- yes!-- and it feels so good. I feel so accomplished now.

Susan Hawk


I think, uh, it disappointed Rich that us girls kept these crab traps going and that we caught a fish.

Jenna Lewis


He's going to make a big point "Oh, that ain't a lot to feed you," but it's a point that we did catch it. So, I don't give a (expletive bleep) about how he's going to see it. We caught it; I feel accomplished. We've done it all now.

Susan Hawk


But, yeah, he's going to be... I think it might bother him. In a way, I hope it does. I hope it bugs him, 'cause now he can't say that no more, you know? 'Cause us girls caught this one.

Susan Hawk


Day 26Edit

Sean finds information at Tree Mail about their upcoming Reward Challenge.

I love getting mail and there was a log hanging above our mailbox. It looked an awful lot like part of the tree, but when I took it down, there was a sign on there a little a nursery rhyme, it says: (says 1st verse in front of the group) "then you'll be home free, (says 3rd verse in front of the group) then go climb a tree." I'm sure the game is anything but simple, just, like, just pick a rope and run.

Sean Kenniff


The remaining members of Rattana met Jeff Probst in the middle of the jungle for their next challenge, where Jeff first revealed the prize (a BBQ feast with letters from home) before the mechanics of the challenge itself.

I'm prepared to eat rice tonight... (chuckles) like every night.

Rudy Boesch


I want the letter from home more because I can go back and get rice, but I haven't seen or heard anything from my kids.

Jenna Lewis


That's it, I'm going big, going for all of it.

Kelly Wiglesworth


After a closely-contested challenge, Colleen ended up victorious. Jeff then revealed that she can choose one tribe mate to join her at the reward. And with no hesitation, she picked Jenna. After the challenge, Jenna and Colleen enjoyed the barbecue that Jeff cooked himself, while the scene was constantly changing from the barbecue feast and back at Rattana camp, where the other tribe members were eating rice. During their feast, Jenna and Colleen discussed about the mysterious four votes that eliminated their former Pagong comrades Greg and Gretchen. And after much deliberation, they decided to make a counter-alliance, named the Barbecue Alliance, by bringing Gervase and possibly the Tagi outsider Sean to potentially break Richard’s pact. After the feast, Jeff handed them their letters from home, making Jenna extremely happy since she hadn't received any news from them, adding up to the failure of having her own tape last episode. Jenna cried as she read the letters from her daughters aloud.

Day 27Edit

Back at Rattana camp, the remaining members greeted Richard for his 39th birthday. To celebrate, Richard decided to take all of his garments and walked around camp naked. Despite an outcry from Colleen and Jenna, Richard kept his promise and remained naked most of the morning.

Rich's birthday is today, and it's his 39th birthday and he celebrated immediately by taking off all of his clothes and celebrating in his birthday suit... which you never get used to seeing Richard naked.

Sean Kenniff


I'm 39 today and I had intended for quite a long time to celebrate my birthday naked.

Richard Hatch


And I'm sure he does love to be naked, and I'm glad for that and I thought I'd be okay with that, but sitting at the fire this morning and he comes just walking up and sits, like, two inches from me naked... I wanted to get away. It felt awkward sitting next to a naked gay man, and if he had, like, something to cover the butt crack area I'd be cool with that.

Jenna Lewis


When I go home, my wife asks me about-- "Well, who was with you?" I'll say, "A queer that ran around bare-ass half of the time," for one thing.

Rudy Boesch


Rich wanted to be naked for his birthday. Oh, fun. Show off a little more. I mean, he was doing it for shock value. It's goofy. Who walks around naked 24/7?

Colleen Haskell


Colleen was particularly uncomfortable with my nakedness and when she saw me naked, she just made a funny face and put her hands over her face and who knows what that's intended to signal?

Richard Hatch


I love that Rich gets annoyed with me-- that makes me happy-- and he really has in the past two days and it just makes me want to egg him on more.

Colleen Haskell


Colleen and Jenna then tried to persuade Gervase, and Sean to get rid of the Tagi alliance. Gervase was in to the plan, while Sean declared that he doesn't need it and he will stick to his "alphabet strategy." The girls also decided to convince Kelly (a member of the rumored Tagi pact), though Kelly was unsure.

It's crunch time now. It's getting down to the final wire and I'm amazed that I'm still here and I got 12 days left. It's not even a strategy. I'm just really focused now, on winning these challenges. I'm trying to think, "How did I lose yesterday and how can I stop that from happening again today?" 'Cause today is even bigger than the food when it comes down to it. You know, I'd rather not eat and get that Immunity Challenge every time.

Gervase Peterson


I think it adds a new dimension to the game of me going alphabetically.

Sean Kenniff


I'm going in alphabetical order-- Jenna is next. It would make me happy if Gervase does not win Immunity this time 'cause I had to skip him last time-- you know, I skipped him in the order-- and maybe Jenna will win it and get out of the order.

Sean Kenniff


Sean's going around telling everybody "Don't be in the alliance. Don't..." um... "vote your conscience." Meanwhile, he's going around preaching everyone to vote their conscience and he's, like, "Oh, okay, alphabetically."

Kelly Wiglesworth


Sean... I like Sean. Sean's a great guy, you know, but about Sean's alphabetical order. It's like my granddaddy used to say: "If you want to be seen, stand up, if you want to be heard, speak up, and if you want to be appreciated, shut up."

Gervase Peterson


At the first Survivor mental challenge, Rudy outsmarted everyone else, thus securing himself a spot in the final seven.

After the challenge Jenna, Colleen and Kelly were goofing around and the Tagi alliance were weary of Kelly's allegiance. The remaining Pagong members decided to vote together and see if this would change their fate in the game.

We had fun, you know? We had-- Pagong was a good, was a good place to live. Now we moved into the new neighborhood with the nasty neighbors. (laughs)

Colleen Haskell


The people who came in swinging were Rich and Sue. They knew. They're smart. They're very smart people... Although Rich is just a numskull. God! People are wishy-washy. They're conniving and they're stupid, and that's what's happening, and it's all out in the open for everybody to see. The decision that I feel I'm left with is do I interact with these people, have fun and just wait till my ticket comes up or do I try and strategize and try and make a difference?

Colleen Haskell


Yesterday, at the dinner, we had a whole conversation about forming a new alliance. We're going to vote the same and we figure that this puts us in jeopardy for the next one, but we were in jeopardy anyway, so...

Jenna Lewis


Well, we tried the "be nice, honor" way. It didn't work, so don't be stupid anymore. It's just, we're smarter now. We saw that that way didn't work, so we got to switch gears.

Gervase Peterson


Jenna and I were just, you know, goofing off and, uh, Kelly decided to join in. And, so I feel bad for Kelly because here she wants to play. And Rich is, like, "Something's happened to you since these girls came. I'm really worried about you," kind of putting her in her place and makes her feel a little self-conscious. By her being nervous and wishy-washy about where her loyalties lie, it's really making Sue and Rich nervous.

Colleen Haskell


Kelly's acting a little odd. She's dressing like the other two that are her age, and I'm hoping that Kelly hasn't, uh, shifted trust and-and joined forces with somebody else.

Richard Hatch


I thought about a female alliance and watching them, the way they walk around, hand in hand. I even thought about lesbianism, but, uh, maybe not. I don't know. And, uh, it could happen if they had any brains, but I don't think they got enough brains to do that.

Rudy Boesch


I probably will have the swing vote tonight. I'd said before, you know, alliance or no alliance, there's two people that I have in mind to vote off and they're two people that, um, are-are competition, but, um, they annoy me and... (chuckling) they're kind of sucky to live with.

Kelly Wiglesworth


I really don't know what's going to happen at Tribal Council tonight. I know I'm voting for Rich. I know Jenna's voting for Rich. I know Gervase is voting for Rich.

Colleen Haskell


As long as he's catching fish, people are gonna try to keep him around, so I say, get rid of Rich and we all starve together.

Gervase Peterson


The rest of my alliance, if that's what you want to call it? Yeah, we're all voting for Rich. He's ruthless and the fact that we're voting him out on his birthday-- it's not lost on me. We're giving him a birthday present.

Jenna Lewis


Today's Immunity Challenge saw wisdom and strategy outplay youth and strength. Tonight it's Rudy who's safe from the vote as the others contemplate their fate. But this is not the only vote on their mind. Beginning tonight with Greg, all members voted off the island will return to subsequent Tribal Councils as part of a Jury. They will gather information for a very important decision, because, ultimately, these seven will decide who, of the Final Two Survivors, leaves the island with the million-dollar prize.

Jeff Probst


At Tribal Council, Jeff greeted Rich for his birthday. Colleen’s alliance failed with only three votes (against Rich), while the three of the Tagi alliance members voted for Jenna (while Kelly on the other hand betrayed the Tagi alliance by voting for Sean.) In the end, It was Sean’s alphabetical voting strategy which became the deciding vote and with a 4-3-1 decision, Jenna Lewis became the 9th person voted off from Survivor, and the second Jury member

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

Kelly and Colleen’s confessionals are currently unavailable. Also, Richard’s confessionals is only available on DVD.

(voting for Richard) My vote's for Rich because the longer Rich is on this island, the bigger of a threat he becomes to me taking that million dollars, so I figure if I get rid of him now, everybody else will be cake, so, happy birthday, Rich.

Gervase Peterson


(voting for Jenna) I'm sorry, Jenna, but you're just way too wired for me to live with you any longer. Just your personality is way too zippo-zippo, and you whine too much."

Susan Hawk


(voting for Jenna) Eliminating a big mouth.

Rudy Boesch


(voting for Jenna) Hey, Jenna. I guess you were trying to form a competitive alliance. We don't want any of that.

Richard Hatch


(voting for Jenna) Continuing my alphabetic strategy, Jenna, you know I love you, no offense to this. I hope you don't get voted off. I don't think... you might have one vote or two votes or something like that but nothing major, I don't think. I hope.

Sean Kenniff


(voting for Richard) Fish or not, I think he's getting near the point, he's ready to go home. Even though it is his birthday.

Jenna Lewis



Final WordsEdit

Well, I had a good time. It was a great time on the island. I felt like I was targeted tonight because they knew that Sean would vote for me alphabetically, so they knew they'd get an easy off with me. They were more powerful because Pagong went into it a little naive, so, that's it. I had a really good time, and no hard feelings and nothing's taken personally.
