In only the second week of the competition on "Survivor: One World" (Wed., 8 p.m. EST on CBS), the women's tribe continued to struggle with communication. At least they got their leadership situation taken care of by appointing high school teacher Sabrina. She proved a competent and capable leader around camp, but it still wasn't enough.
This season, fans were promised more challenges without Jeff overseeing them, and they got one in the reward challenge. While the women remained competitive in this one until the bitter end, the men once again pulled off a victory. They would continue their winning streak into the immunity challenge as well. This one had them having to squeeze past one another on a narrow balance beam.
While the men quickly figured out a strategy, the women couldn't quite figure it out. They resorted to blaming their boobs getting in the way, and on Kat jumping into the water needlessly twice, but it came down to a lack of leadership and communication. On this one, Monica had figured out a way for them to do it, but by the time anyone heard her it was too little too late. The women started getting themselves across the beam, but they couldn't catch up to the strong lead the men had established.
So it was back to tribal council for the women, though this time they had a pretty clear target going in. As the oldest member of the tribe, Nina had never quite fit in, and they decided she was a liability. Nina made a strong case for Kat simply because of her ditzy move at the challenge. The women's alliance openly admitted that they basically regretted some of their alliance choices, but they stayed true to the one they'd created and sent Nina packing. Down two, they need to get it together soon if they want to stay competitive in the game.
Find out who gets eliminated next on "Survivor: One World," Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
