So far... ten familial pairs
were split into two tribes of all-stars and loved ones.
So far, it's been all about the all-stars as the Tadhana
tribe has been the only ones to go to Tribal Council. In
the last Tribal Council, we had us a good old-fashioned
blindside, as John was voted out almost unanimously. Now
the question remains... in the mother of all Awkward
Turtle moments, how will Candice react to seeing her
husband on Redemption Island?

DAY 9: REDEMPTION DUEL: A
Bridge Too Far
Candice seeing John come
to RI last night? "I was really upset... Upset all." She
was hoping to go up against someone she hates, like Brad
Culpepper. Her words.
After the rest of the
cast gives Culpepper the business for being Culpepper...
and masterminding EVERY SINGLE VOTE OUT UP TO AND
INCLUDING THIS POINT...
The three dead will
maneuver a football with a key across a bridge of
blades. At the end, they'll use the key to unlock a bag
of puzzle pieces. Use the pieces to solve a complex box
puzzle. First one to do so wins another hint to
Immunity. Second one will be safe. Third one... boat
back to civilization.
John is the first to free
his bag of puzzle pieces. Marissa is the second,
followed by Candice. Now we're working on the puzzle...
Candice is maneuvering this slowly and carefully. John,
on the other hand, is pulling away. Marissa is hot on
... and then Culpepper
decides to help John out. Might've worked. JOHN wins!
Marissa is getting
frustrated, while Candice's slow and steady may yet win
this race... and it DOES! Candice survives, and Marissa
Peterson are going home.
As the winner, John gets
to give away a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol. Candice
suggests giving it to Monica. After some ribbing from
Jeff... John complies. And Monica does what SHE'S told
as well, when Culpepper tells her to "walk it down and
put it in the fire."
... meanwhile, we'll
leave the two lovebirds alone. Bow chicka wow wow. And
by that, I mean the honeymoon that they never had.
DAY 9: The Ultimate Sacrifice
Monica is trying to
explain Brad's leadership "role" on the other side of
the island. She wonders if there will ever be a duel
where her husband is not verbally accosted.
Let's pause. There's a
difference between looking at someone through game eyes
and looking at someone through the eyes of love. Monica
is looking at Culpepper and not seeing a player, but
someone with which she shares a life, a home, and a
family. We look at Culpepper and we see a guy who by all
measures is playing the game WAY. TOO. HARD. WAY. TOO.
EARLY. And not giving a crap about the consequences.
Many a player have fallen on that sword. And Monica is
too blinded by love to see that. Right now.
Gervase is looking at
this through game eyes, saying he's playing the game.
Good for him! FUN FACT: Gervase has the word "Pagong"
tattooed up his left bicep, a tribute to his earlier
DAY 10: Tyson's Shoulder: The
Tyson is trying to do
things with his arm... but it's still in a sling. It's
still getting better, but he likes to play it up only
for the breaks it gets him. Gervase & him like to sneak
off and go get some coconut juice (#coconutbandits). The
rest of the tribe notices the little cuts on said
coconuts.... and by the tribe, I mean Laura Boneham.
Gervase is quick to panic about being discovered. Until
Monica suggests a crab did it. Thanks, Monica!
Tyson and Gervase are now
sworn to secrecy. They will die with this secret...
until this episode airs. Oh, sorry.
Meanwhile, Tyson and
Gervase are also sworn to each other. And they're hoping
Vytas makes it to the merge to work with Aras and Laura.
That'll be five. That'll be an alliance. That'll be near
The Crate Escape
Paddle to a series of crates, releasing as you go. Once
you have five, paddle back and build a staircase. Then
solve a puzzle to reveal a combination to a lock. Use
the lock to unlock a key, use the key to release a flag,
raise the flag to achieve victory.
As for a
reward, they are playing for... tea & coffee... OR
Tina & Kat sit
out for Galang. Tyson will play on his injury.
starts out with a sizable lead...until their crates fall
in the water. Galang takes the opportunity and gets into
the lead... and they are not looking back.
GALANG! On FIRE! And because they have fishing gear,
already, they are locked into tea and coffee and
croissants... NOT that there's anything wrong with that.
Ciera sucks at puzzles.
Culpepper says his getting called out at Redemption
sucks, suggesting that someone without a loved one
should be next to go.
How about someone WITH a
loved one. Culpepper, the master of the blindside, is
HIMSELF blindsided. Hey, live by the sword, my friend.
