'Chaos Will Reign': Mat Rogers Is Ready To Make His Move On Vakama's Alliance
In an exclusive preview of Monday's episode, Mat Rogers pleads with his tribe to work with him.
Things haven't been great for the Godfather since the tribe swap earlier in the week. Being dragged onto a tribe and completely cut-off from his alliance of Mo, Jacqui and Tarzan -- Mat's been using every trick in the book to keep himself afloat at Vakama.
Unfortunately, one of his greatest advantages, his idol, was flushed during the last tribal council which saw John's torch snuffed.
During the tribal council, Mat had the plan to get a few of the other castaways onside to blindside Locky, using his idol to knock Vakama's top dog off his pedestal.
"Man, I thought Harry was a player and he played me, unfortunately," Mat says in the clip.
"If Flick, Harry and Shonee had just voted with me, I play my idol: Locky goes home, we own the tribe!"
But his efforts were thwarted, leaving him in the most vulnerable position in the tribe. Idol-less and completely on the oust from the alliance.
"It was on a platter. It's like, God, have some guts! Stop sitting there and doing nothing. I feel like Locky, Brooke, AK and Flick have won this little battle and they've been able to win over Shonee and Harry and the alliance rolls on..."
After attempting to enlist the help of two-thirds of the Little Rascals -- Shonee and Henry -- Mat's attention seems to have shifted to the kingpin himself, attempting to sway Locky into voting with him.
It looks like Mat shifts his focus to the ol' "keep the tribe strong" strategy, putting the pressure on Locky to re-evaluate what voting Mat (who is a beast in challenges) would do to Vakama's future challenge performances.
When Mat asks Locky how he thinks Vakama will fare in the next immunity challenge if they vote him out, Locky admits it'll be "terrible". Just as the Godfather had hoped.
"If I'm going to go down, I'm going to go down swinging. I'm not going to sit at the bottom of an alliance and just wait to be picked off."
We can't wait to see where this goes next.
