So far... we had a tribal
switch that resulted in Vytas with a lot of women, all
of whom want him out. But through no fault of his own,
two of them, Laura B and Kat, ended up being
short-changed. Now there's only Vytas and a few others,
but that may yet change after today.
HERE TO SEE THE GOINGS ON AT THE TADHANA TRIBE
DAY 18: "Well, thanks
for having my back, guys."
Vytas says that he and
the rest of the women are now a unit "and if it goes
down tomorrow, then that's a majority." Of course that's
not what he feels, but that's what he's saying. This is
called playing the game. Tina says that loyalty should
Oh, and Monica... you're
On Redemption Island,
Laura B arrives, thinking her vote-out was "ridiculous".
No good deed goes unpunished, and that goes double in
the game of Survivor. "And the merge should be tomorrow!
And the guys on the other tribe... they're going to take
out the girls!"
THE DAY IS HERE, DO OR DIE.
FOLLOWING TODAY'S DUEL, THE
WINNER WILL RE-ENTER THE GAME. THE LOSERS WILL LEAVE THE GAME FOR GOOD.
shovels and your head-lamps, because IT'S GOING DOWN.
REDEMPTION DUEL: Get a Grip
The winner of today's
duel will re-enter the game and get a second chance at
Hang on to a pole for as
long as you can. If any part of your body touches the
ground, you're OUT of the game. Last one hanging is BACK
Out first in 20
minutes.... JOHN CODY. Now it's all about the Lauras.
Out next... LAURA BONEHAM.
LAURA MORETT, you are back in the hunt.
One more bit of
business.... "DROP YOUR BUFFS. WE ARE MERGED!" The color
Oh yeah, and the hidden
Immunity Idol clue. Laura can keep this or... just...
throw... it... in the fire.
Aras' strategy: Galang
Strong. The original five plus Vytas and Katie. That's
seven. Will it hold?
Back at camp, the party
begins. All the while, Hayden is fearful of coupling
within the tribe among the families and loved ones. That
would be Laura/Ciera, Aras/Vytas, and Tina/Katie. But it
all hinges on Ciera. ... and Laura M, apparently.
Ciera thinks that,
because Laura M was voted out, it could hurt her game.
She admits to mom that she's in an alliance with Caleb,
Hayden, Tyson, and Gervase, and that Aras is next to go.
"Just don't play hard."
You got to act fast come
merge time. Tyson has all the info about the immunity
idol. He thinks that it's at the giant serpent tree at
the waterfall.... FOUND IT!
Aras & Vytas are talking
about going deep into the game with Tina, Katie, Monica,
and Gervase. And Tyson is #7. So we have two conflicting
plans. One of them is a lie. Aras doesn't trust Laura on
account of how scary she is. It would be an easy vote to
get rid of one of the bros right now. "Blood vs. Water
should be called, in the end, Vytas vs. Aras."
NIGHT 19: I Am Number Five
Monica and Tyson are
strategizing about how to get Aras out.... but she likes
to repeat the same idea over and over... Never mind that
it's a bad one. This goes against everything she learned
about Survivor... overtalking and overplaying. She is
not sure about anything right now.
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Jeff Says
Jeff will show you a
series of symbols. You will have to repeat those symbols
using your cube. Get it wrong, you're out. Last one
standing wins immunity.
Round 1 (six items):
Monica is out on the second item. Caleb and Katie are
out on the third item. Tyson and Tina are out on the
fourth item. Hayden is out on the fifth item.
Round 2 (seven items):
Laura is out on the second item. Ciera is out on the
third. Down to Aras, Vytas, and Gervase. Gervase is out
on the fifth. Down to the Super Baskauskas Brothers.
DAY 21: Mistakes made
Back at camp, we have the
new tribe name... KASAMA.
Vytas says that if you
need Immunity, it means that you made mistakes. The only
mistake he's made so far.... beating his brother. He's
planning on the boys voting for Laura M, while the girls
are voting for Ciera, who's worried that mom is having
too much to think again, particularly about why Aras is
so chill all of a sudden. Does HE have the Idol? Of
course not. We know Tyson has the Idol.
The plan with Tyson and
Gervase... Those two, plus Monica, Hayden, Ciera, Caleb,
and Laura M vote for Aras. But Gervase is not sure that
everyone is on the same page.
21: TRIBAL COUNCIL
So we have the original
tribe... the new tribe... and blood vs. water. Tyson
wishes he could work with his partner. Aras says that
there are 11 people, and six of them have to make a
decision tonight. Hayden notes that you often get voted
out again after you come from Redemption, and that any
pair is a swing. Katie says that she came into the merge
knowing who she's going to work with. That's a threat to
the five who have no loved ones. Laura's best play...
using her loved one. "Ciera is a great social player."
Ciera thought that as role reversal. Gervase thinks that
a lot will change after this vote for the dumber
TIME TO VOTE.
Katie: CIERA - "We've
been friends since the beginning. But I'm sorry."
Gervase: ARAS - "This is my power move in the game. I
love you like a brother, but that's just how it is."
Aras: LAURA - "I voted you out once. I might as well
vote you down twice."
Next question... does
Tyson play the hidden Idol tonight? No. So it's 1 for
Ciera, Aras, and Laura.
The rest... Laura...
Ciera... Aras... Aras.... Aras <3....and ARAS.
Blindsided. "Well played, guys. Well played."
Aras Baskauskas... THE
TRIBE HAS SPOKEN. But Redemption Island is still in
