Inside Survivor’s choice for Player of the Week for Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance Episode 8 is…
Here is what the Inside Survivor contributors had to say about Kelley Wentworth after Episode 8:
Martin: Last week there was no obvious front-runner, which made it difficult to make a final pick for Player of the Week. That’s not the case this week, as can be seen by the overwhelming fan vote for Kelley Wentworth after this episode. Wentworth made the biggest move of the season so far with a perfectly executed idol play; negating a record-breaking nine votes against her. By keeping the idol secret and playing as if she was going home, Wentworth was able to sneak attack the dominant alliance and removed one of the solid Bayon Strong members, Andrew Savage, from the game. She may still be on the bottom going forward, but for this tribal council, she was in control.
Shawn: While some might have questioned why Kelley was voted back for a second chance, her moves in the last episode confirmed to everyone that she’s here to play. Kelley did a stellar job of convincing everyone that she did not have an idol while airing dirty laundry at tribal that showed a clear pecking order. While the three amigas aren’t out of the woods just yet, Wentworth’s bold moves this week gave them the necessary time to make moves. I guess Drew Christy wasn’t so dumb after all?
Jacob: Does… does anything else need to be said? Did you watch the episode?
Rob: What he said. ^
