So far... ten familial pairs
were split into two tribes of all-stars and loved ones.
One all-star, Rupert, took one loved-one, wife Laura's
place on Redemption Island, a move that proved to be his
downfall as he was the FIRST eliminated from the game.
Now joining Candice and Marissa (Gervase's niece),
Rachel (Tyson's girlfriend). But not everything is as it
seems as the game enters Day 7 with the new Colton
Cumbie falling down dead (that was quick) and making way
for the Bitch We All Know and Hate.
HERE TO SEE THE GOINGS ON AT THE TADHANA TRIBE
DAY 7: "You went to the
cupcake section at the gas station?".
The talk of the
morning... Tyson's belt buckle, a giant cupcake. The
joke: who wants to take a lick? Not Colton, who says
that these are NOT the same people he played with (and
against) in One World. "They all just want to sit around
and hear each other's life stories. I love the strategy
component of this game, and apparently that's
threatening to people." Colton wants to redefine how he
plays this game. Aras says that he doesn't get this
game, thinking that Colton's want for rampant chaos may
be his undoing.
And he may be right.
After all, Redemption Duels NEVER occur in the cold
ON REDEMPTION ISLAND
The tribes enter to watch
Candice, Marissa, and Rachel do battle. Tyson doesn't
call it a bad move... but will he take the bait? He
defers to Rachel... and she wants to play. So she will
play. "None of you have a chance in hell," Tyson says,
calling out Culpepper... who throws it back in his face.
Marissa takes up for herself AND Rachel saying that the
tribe voted out two strong people, and that's why they
lost. In so many words.... "(^_^) YOU, BRAD CULPEPPER!"
Watch the language.
And now Colton says he
wants out. "I don't want to be here. I can't do this."
..... AAAAAAND ROLL THE
Back to Colton...
quitting... again... and Probst riding his ass like a
Buick. "I don't care about this tribe." What about
numbers, Colton? "That's the best move for me.
Admittedly selfish, but may be the best for me." Probst
threw the first rage-quit back in his face (yeah, that
case of appendicitis? FAKE). "When my back is turned
against the wall in this game, I turn into the person I
was in One World, and I don't want to be that person!
I'm tired of being hated by everybody!"
"You turned into that
person before your back was against the wall." Points
and control of the board to Mr. Apostol. Tina echoes,
saying that he knows that they're not playing his game,
and as such, he can't win.
With that... COLTON
CUMBIE IS GONE. And don't even think that there's a
third invite in your mailbox, bucko. Get your stuff, and
"I don't care what y'all
say." Good! I don't care what you think about it! Grab
your stuff, get out of here, don't even think about
throwing your buff in the fire, because that's a spot of
BACK TO THE GAME.
REDEMPTION DUEL: Deadly
Candice, Marissa, and Rachel will stack a series of
blocks on an angled platform that is supported by
springs and connected to trip bars that can and will set
your chain reaction off early. The aim is to complete
your rally and set it off to set a ball rolling onto a
plate. First two are still alive. Last one... You throw
your buff into the fire.
WINNER: CANDICE! This is
her second Redemption win. In second... after 45 or so
minutes... and a race... MARISSA IS IN! Rachel,
unfortunately, is out. Tyson, take a moment and say your
winner of the Duel, Candice gets to determine who gets a
clue to a hidden Immunity Idol. Of course, she's giving
it to her husband John. This is not a repeat of last
camp, Tyson takes a moment to reflect on his loss. He
has to get to the end now, or else he will regret not
playing in Rachel's place. But we can't go by without
mentioning the 800-pound gay gorilla that is no longer
in the room. Especially thinking about Culpepper, who
honestly is building a giant target on his back thinking
he can play this game!
DAY 8: "Treemail!"
PUSHING, SHOVING, THRASHING,
THIS IS NO REGULAR PILLOW FIGHT.
KNOCK YOUR LOVED ONES IN THE DRINK,
OR YOU MAY JUST GO HOME TONIGHT.
LOVE to go up against Vytas. A little karmic revenge for
years of bullying, maybe?
Using padded bags, each tribesman will attempt to knock
an opponent off the pontoon. First tribe to five wins
As for a
reward, they are playing for... COMFORT (hammock,
pillows, etc) OR... FISHING GEAR.
out for Galang.
Gervase vs. Culpepper. WINNER: Culpepper (Tadhana leads,
Laura Boneham vs. Katie. WINNER: Laura (Tied at 1)
John vs. Aras. WINNER: John (Tadhana leads, 2-1)
Ciera vs. Kat. WINNER: Kat (Tied at 2)
Hayden vs. Tyson. WINNER: in one, Hayden (Tadhana leads,
And we have
an injury on the field. Tyson popped his shoulder a bit.
After a while, it becomes less painful. So he's out. But
only for this challenge. Challenge is back on.
Tina vs. her daughter Katie. WINNER: Tina (Tied at 3)
Aras vs. Vytas! The marquee matchup! Vytas takes a cheap
shot to Aras... and that was a clown move, bro. WINNER:
ARAS! (Galang leads, 4-3)
Laura Morett vs. Ciera. WINNER: LAURA!
GALANG! On FIRE! And because they have fishing gear,
already, they are locked into comfort and shelter. Not
that they're complaining.
So two women on Tadhana...
against an army of men. Maybe Culpepper will pay for his
comments on Redemption Island.
... or at Tribal
Or maybe when he was at
home talking to Monica...
... but it won't be
today. By a vote of 4-1 with two left over, John.. grab
your torch, head to Redemption Island.
