So far... we had loved ones
and all stars playing on separate tribes, BUT after a
switch, we have one tribe full of women... with one man,
Vytas, and one tribe with the opposite, Ciera being the
odd lady out. And after Kat kvetches about
overstrategizing, she overstrategized herself right to
Redemption Island... and we're back in.
HERE TO SEE THE GOINGS ON AT THE TADHANA TRIBE
DAY 17: "I don't think I
played the right way."
These are the words of
one Kat Edorsson. And now she's wondering how Hayden is
going to take it. If the measure of your relationship is
the way you play a game show on television, then you, my
dear, have bigger problems than your game play. I'd wish
you luck in the duel, but... yeah, like I care about you
at this point.
REDEMPTION DUEL: Fire
After an obviously
emotional reunion, we get to business. Hayden has said
that his relationship with Kat is more important than
this game. Jeff says... Put up or shut up. Kat wants to
Chop a bag of puzzle
pieces and put together a fire puzzle. First two are
Winner... JOHN! Also
alive... LAURA MORETT! Kat... should have sent Hayden to
play in her place. Kat Edorsson... OUT.
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, John
gets the honor of deciding who gets to burn another
clue... And it's Monica.
Meanwhile, the subject of
both camps' chatter... merge coming?
DAY 18: Another morning...
Tina's really starting to
like Vytas for his hard-knocks mentality. She could see
him with Katie... and maybe a few grandbabies.
Vytas remembers a story
about trusting a woman with $100. He thinks that women
like a bad boy... but even more than that, they love a
reformed bad boy. Yes, it's a bit underhanded, a bit
shady... "But it's working". Take notes, men.
On the other side of the
safety dance, Laura Boneham, who is coming to terms with
who she is and who she was both in the tribe and in
life. She will stick with the girls if it helps her game
As for what's coming in
the next Challenge, Vytas hopes that it is not physical,
because a tribe of five men and a woman will always beat
a tribe of the opposite. Laura is concerned that if they
DO lose, Vytas is going home. He's a marked man on BOTH
ends of the island.
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Chaingame
Four members of each
tribe will be chained at the ankles and rigged to a
spiral coil. Once all four have been freed, they will
have to traverse a course and grab balls & chains to use
as bolos to whip around a grid at the end of the course.
First to three wins.
Also.. to the winner...
go fried chicken and all the fixings.
What starts as a regular
race ends with a bit of a tangle in the course. They all
come to the end at the same time, though.
WINNER: Tadhana! Bad news
for anyone named Vytas.
At camp, Laura makes it
clear to everyone... Vytas is the next to go. In front
of everyone. Laura couldn't keep it held up inside. She
feels like her tribe is loyal to her. We'll see how
Meanwhile, Monica is
floored by Laura's announcement, feeling blindsided. She
thought she could trust her, but this "executive
decision" could leave HER out in the cold.
Tina suggests that Laura
could be on the block tonight. Vytas says he's done his
due diligence in building trust with the women, so this
should be an interesting vote. They need the alpha,
otherwise, there's no future. Katie thinks that it's
smart to get rid of Vytas, but at the same time, Laura
is the wild card. That could hit the fan back on the
tribe. "Whatever goes down, it's not going to be
pretty." That's putting it light, Katie.
18: TRIBAL COUNCIL
Laura confesses the
tribal plan to Jeff. Vytas thought it was discouraging
to get that kind of news. Monica would've appreciated a
word in edgewise. Tina agrees. After all, they are in an
alliance. Will Vytas convince a tribe of women to vote
against one of their own? He says he's been a good
member, and he suggests that it should be based on
trust, honesty, and sincerity. What will Aras think? "I
think Aras would be pretty bummed if I was gone". Laura
wants to vote Vytas off because of Aras. And what if it
is Laura? She's going to keep her head held high. What
will Rupert say? No matter what, Rupert will be proud of
Tina thought it was
horrible. She likes hearing both stories. Vytas says
that everyone's got a great story, but he's voting based
on who he can trust more.
Laura B: VYTAS
Vytas: LAURA B. - "That was a really sweet speech you
gave to me at camp. Should've been switched around,
So it's 1 to 1.
The other votes... are
for LAURA BONEHAM. So much for that alliance. THE TRIBE
HAS SPOKEN. Hope you do better than your husband.
