So far... ten familial pairs
were split into two tribes of all-stars and loved ones.
But it's been all loved-ones getting the shaft, from
Gervase's niece Marissa on Redemption Island to
Candice's hubby John at Tribal Council... until last
round, when Galang lost their first Immunity Challenge,
sending them to Tribal. It was an easy decision to send
Laura B to the Island, being on the outs, BUT Aras had
bigger idea. Will his ouster of Laura M prove wise?
HERE TO SEE THE GOINGS ON AT THE TADHANA TRIBE
NIGHT 13: "It wasn't me."
Laura B escapes with
another shot at the game, and she's thinking Rupert
would be so proud. Meanwhile, Aras remembers that look
that Laura M shot him just tonight. It was not a happy
look, as she realized that it was going to be her. Now
he's the ringleader, and he doesn't know how to get out
of that thumb.
DAY 14: How do you solve a
problem like Aras?
Tyson is thinking that if
Aras reunites with Vytas, they are a combined threat.
Gervase agrees. The question: when do you dethrone King
Aras? We may have ONE more challenge before the merge.
Gervase screwed up being the pawn last time he played.
He had better watch his step THIS time.
REDEMPTION DUEL: 1 vs. 100
Laura refuses any offer
to swap with Ciera.
Race across a balance
beam and collect numbered tiles. Put them in numerical
order from 1 to 100. The first two survive. The winner
gets a clue to Hidden Immunity. Please don't burn it;
the interns have worked so hard.
Laura has an early lead
after the guys fall on their heads and their... other...
heads. She DOES have this. EASY WIN! Now who gets
second? It's... JOHN! After 14 days, it's GAME OVER (and
a Judas kiss) for Brad Culpepper.
As the winner, Laura M
gets the honor of bestowing a clue to Hidden Immunity to
someone. She gives it to ... Vytas. And Vytas is giving
it up to the fire.
... ONE MORE PIECE OF
BUSINESS! TIME FOR A TRIBAL SWITCH! After a random draw
for new buffs... or as Tyson calls it.. fate...
Back at camp, Tina and
Katie are reuniting... and it feels so good... Tina's
been playing water, and now she can play blood. Vytas on
the other hand is coming from a place of power to a
place of no power.
Monica suggests to Tina,
Monica, and Kat to ally to the end, the original Galangs.
Kat tells her to shut it. Stop over-strategizing.
DAY 16: Dr. V and the Women
So it's Vytas... and five
women. Time to submissive up. "When I'm a little
vulnerable with women... I open up." Hopefully it will
buy him a few more days. And the ladies are lapping it
up. The stories Vytas tells are true, but he is playing
them HARD.... except for maybe Laura B.
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Cage
One pair from each tribe
will race to a cage, retrieve a fish trap, and come
back. Once you've released all the traps, use the pieces
to put together a puzzle. First one to do so wins.
Also, we have a picnic to
give away to the winner!
Tribes are even, everyone
plays. A big problem, as Laura B and Tina forget their
FIRST TRAP. Tadhana has a big lead.
Aras & Tyson begin the
puzzle, while the Galangs are still working on their
third cage. They get their trap, but they are going to
have to hustle.
Tadhana had a huge
lead... and then they blew it.. BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET!
The fish is still wrong. NOW? NO! Do it over!
... WINNERS: TADHANA!
Vytas needed to do
something, but he can't act out on it. Tina doesn't
blame anyone if it's her time tonight. Being a man in
the mix of women, he knows that he's slave to whatever
Kat wants to take out
Monica for her overstrategizing. Tina's "only thing":
"What if we get over there... and it's all guys?" She
questions her loyalty... and then rats to Monica on it.
You want to talk about loyalty? Monica's only loyal to
one person... Monica. Then there's Kat being a really
bad liar. Monica knows that something up. "Do unto
others BEFORE others do unto you." So now it's time to
... that's right, OVER STRATEGIZE!
Tina wants to stay with
the plan to vote Vytas out. But it's a coin toss,
because of Kat's plan to get rid of Monica.ill. So who
would be the best person to try and off Culpepper? This
question and tons more as we arrive to our first...
16: TRIBAL COUNCIL
Kat says that Monica and
her are not getting along. Monica... was talking about
the game and about trust and sticking together. Vytas
thinks that Kat is going to write his name down, saying
he has established some relationships here. Monica wants
to trust her. She really really does. Kat hopes she does
not go home tonight. So who should be? Vytas? Vytas? "It
doesn't matter if you have five strong if one person has
demonstrated that they can't be trusted." What does Tina
say? Having a loved one puts a new dynamic. She's
thinking about tonight AND the future. Vytas can only be
open and vulnerable.
And then Kat gets caught
in a lie.
Vytas: "KAT - I hope you enjoy the ambiance at
The other votes... are
for... KAT. By a vote of 5-1, KAT EDORSSON... THE TRIBE
HAS SPOKEN. Nice try, but you tried too hard.
