First serious allies, fear, lightheartedness, and shrewd schemes. Who to observe, and who to take as an ally? Just like in Alfred Hitchcock’s movies, in “Agent – Stars” show it all starts with an earthquake, and then the suspense only continues to grow.
DAY 7 – CRUISE TO THE UNKNOWN
In the show it turns out that these women who look like princesses can surprise the men with their intuition and will for fighting. Nothing new – the popular detective, Sherlock Holmes said that “the impression of a woman may be more valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner”. 😉 When it comes to me, I can brag that I’ve been given a sixth sense when it comes to people. The friendships that I made on the first day of the show not only let me make it to the fourth episode, but also turned out to be valuable in my private life. I immediately started getting well with Maciek or Kamila (who had to leave the show last time) and we’re in touch up to now, and we can do everything with Tomek and Antek. No wonder that some – like Ewa and Sylwia immediately spotted a threat in our relations and tried to break our alliance with jealousy.. Despite what the girls think about us, we’re not a mutual admiration society, but a perfectly working alliance! 😉 I already said that it’s not a show for solo players, and I’ll say it once again. This time we were divided in two teams. Standing on two opposite shores of the Blyde river with the help of walkie-talkies and binoculars we had to navigate a ferry. Joasia and Monika, both blindfolded were behind the steering wheels. The girls, listening carefully to our tips were to get close to five boards with prices and take a picture of them. They had a camera, and as little as 14 shots, and they didn’t see what they were taking pictures of.
Everyone’s got their style: some look for allies and think of a strategy, some look for conspiracy, make mess, and do everything to disturb the rest.
We could have won 8 thousand zloty in this task. Of course there were some obstacles. Tomek, despite his perfect eyesight, navigated the camera operators’ boat for a while, instead of the ferry with Joasia and Monika. The other group’s biggest problem was whether the girls on the boat should turn left or right. 😉 Well, it wasn’t the agent’s problem for sure, as most of the pictures weren’t sharp, and neither of the groups managed to win the whole amount of money. Or maybe the title character was on the boat itself? It’s another time that I found Joasia’s behavior very suspicious – was it still bravado, or more deliberate actions? It’s really hard to believe that she took that many pointless pictures by accident. I have to take a closer look, as similar things happen definitely too many times around her. I’m also concerned about trying to make the others guilty and being jealous of pacts, with what some of the participants have stopped hiding. It’s very hard to keep calm and have everything under control in such situations. Luckily I managed to cool the negative moods in the team down – after all, it’s not time to philosophize, when your enemy is right behind you, right? 😉
DAY 8 – JUMP FOR THE MONEY
This time our task was to write down whom we trust most, and whom we trust the least from our group. I’m very happy that I earned the trust of so many people, but there’s no place for sentimental thinking in MY tactic. I really get along with the boys, and admire them for their input and everything, but only one person can win the show. The closest future will show whether my strategy is really working… Following my secret plan, I decided to vote for Monika, even though the truth is, that it’s Tomek and Antek whom I trust most. I feared that if I wrote one of their names on the piece of paper, I won’t be working with them in the second task. We were surprised so many times in the show… Luckily, nothing like that happened. Our task was to catch a bag with money while jumping on a rope into a precipice. The person who had to choose the ones who’d catch the bag for sure – the one whom the group trusts the least (leaves you with some thoughts, doesn’t it?) was Ewa. I was very surprised that she didn’t bet a penny on me, even though I have successfully completed all the previous missions on heights. I knew she did it on purpose, but I had no idea what the purpose was. Now I’m sure – she just tried to destroy my pact and do everything so that the others start suspecting me. Ewa, along with Sylwia, clearly chose the tactic of disturbing. Well, I say that all’s fair in love and war, and karma… ALWAYS comes back 😉
A glamour princess, a detective, or a fighter? In South Africa I proved that all these apply when it comes to me. What many find surprising, I track the Agent and jump into the precipice as efficiently as I create my looks.
Having watched the fourth episode, I’m especially happy that Tomek stood by me so strongly, and that I convinced him that I’m a fighter. Now not only does he appreciate my looks, but also thinks of me as of a dark horse of the show, and a real competitor 😀 I have to admit that I was also impressed by my determination while jumping to get the money sack. Especially that right after before I jumped the rope pulled me backwards (I was too light, so it looked as if I tripped), and had to push off the fence. Once again Hubert didn’t succeed in this mission. My woman’s intuition told me that his bad luck is only a pose, and I’m curious if it’s only temporary? And one more thing: just like Michał, I think that the real winners of this episode were Sylwia, Dominika and Maciek. They overcome their fears, and in the end it’s way more important than the money. I kept my fingers crossed for the girls, as sisterhood is more important than competition. Michał, our colorful bird, flew away in this episode. I’m gonna miss him, but I also am not forgetting about vigilance.
