No longer the "greatest," Rob Cesternino gets booted from 'Survivor: All-Stars'
By Reality TV World staff, 02/20/2004
Regardless of how else he fares, Richard Hatch can once again breath easy. After his completely unimpressive showing in Survivor: All-Stars, no longer will anyone be daring to claim that Rob Cesternino was the best strategist to ever play the game.. Charged with being both a threat to their future gameplay and a lazy contributor to camp life, Rob C. was unable to survive Chapera's first tribal council and was voted off unanimously by the rest of his tribe.
Faced with the "worst storm in Survivor history," life at all three camps was tough. While Saboga was washed out of their below ground level shelter, at Chapera, Amber Brkich and Robert Mariano used "body heat" to get through the night. Meanwhile, at Mogo Mogo, Richard used his fishing skills to quickly resuscitate both the Mogo tribe's spirits and bodies.
After winning the "matchmaker" Reward Challenge, Chapera enjoyed a nice bath while Survivor producer Mark Burnett enjoyed the benefit of airing footage of nice, clean, lithe young bodies (thankfully Richard's tribe didn't win the challenge.) Then, once Chapera managed to find their final hard-won reward key which enabled them to become the first tribe to obtain both rice and liquor (just what a person needs after living on an empty stomach for nearly two weeks) it was time for the Immunity Challenge.
Despite being the first tribe to properly retrieve all their puzzle pieces, the cerebrally-challenged Chapera tribe was unable to determine how to properly assemble their pieces, handing Immunity to first Saboga and then Mogo Mogo, and leaving Chapera to face its first tribal council session.
Episode 4's correct bootee prediction lifts our Survivor All-Stars prediction record to 4-0. In Spoiler Island fantasy game action, remarkably, all six of last week's first place players incorrectly picked one of this week's challenge winners, and as a result, we now have a new 24-way tie for first place. Congratulations to all. And if you haven't signed up yet, there's still time -- sign-up now.
So what happens next week? Do the tribes merge? Can't that ole country boy Tom hold his liquor? And who'll be the next survivor to go? Check out our Survivor spoilers forum for the latest details on these and many other hot topics!
