So far... all-stars and
family members were split into two, then mixed around,
and now... we have ourselves a family reunion... which
of course can only mean one thing. A good old fashioned
blindside. Aras is now at Redemption Island waiting for
someone to join him. Meanwhile, Tyson has found the
Hidden Idol. Will he use it? HOW will he use it?
NIGHT 21: "Aras did not see that
coming... and neither did I."
Vytas has one thing on
his mind... revenge. It was a bold move and it worked.
Tina believes that Monica and Tyson won the battle, but
not the war.
Tyson believes that
Survivor broke his heart twice before... He was never
taken to the end, and he knew that Aras was never going
to do that either. But between then and now he fell in
love again. He's thinking: "Tina, if everyone played the
game like you do, I would win 100 percent of the time."
DAY 22: Tina gets told...
Tina made her bed with
the wrong bedfellows, and now she's getting ready for
the possibility that she may take Katie down with her.
Katie says that she needs to build her own alliance. How
do you sell yourself when your mother is a piss-poor
player who lucked herself into the million the first
Answer? TIME TO THROW
MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN.
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Lunch
It's a Survivor classic,
the SECOND Immunity Challenge ever played... reimagined.
Gervase, you're not stranger to this.
The object, partake on
Round 1: you will eat...
40 mealworms! First three to get all of them down will
Winner... Tyson, Monica,
and Vytas, after having dropped a few on the ground.
Round 2: you guys will
eat the same thing. And Tina's are making a break for
it. Gervase is jumping and Ciera is gagging.
Winner... Hayden, Gervase,
and Caleb (Tina and Ciera forfeit)
Round 3: You will partake

"chitterlings" ... FINE, CHITLINS. TWO will advance.
Winners... Monica... and
FINAL ROUND: For
dessert... TWO grubs! Remember 13 years ago, Gervase
could not stomach ONE!
BACK AT CAMP... Oh, did
we mention that Tribal Council is tonight? The plan on
Laura's side of the world: four votes for Vytas, three
for Katie. Will Tyson tell Laura of the Idol, or will he
keep it to himself so as to protect himself? Vytas knows
he's a target... and makes it a point to ask around if
he is indeed the one to go tonight. The answer: "Either
you or Katie."
Katie, meanwhile, needs
to figure out a different game plan, one that does not
involve Tina. Monica, meanwhile, notes that there are a
lot of scrambles going on given the seven votes that are
seemingly locked. Laura: "What the hell do you care? You
got a necklace!" It shows how paranoid she is.
Vytas continues to make
to Tyson a few valid points about pairs still in the
game AND promising a jury vote, all he has left. Tyson's
main concern: an all-girl alliance could form. Sending a
girl home would keep the numbers in his favor, so he
would like to see Katie go home to help his game. He
doesn't want to be seen as the kingpin, though. He's got
to be careful tonight.
NIGHT 22: TRIBAL COUNCIL
Well this was a quick
Tina notes that she
called Tyson and Monica when she should've kept her
mouth shut. Vytas says that he is his brother's keeper
and if Aras gets voted out, you are next. Gervase
understands where Vytas is coming from. Seniments that
Monica "fell for" right away. Monica throws it back into
his face by accusing Vytas of flopping on Brad when he
was in the tribe. Vytas... accuses Monica of breaking
trust. Katie says that it's safe to assume that it's
her, Tina, or Vytas tonight. Vytas says that the power
lies with Tyson and Gervase. He's playing ALL of the
TIME TO VOTE.
Monica: VYTAS - "What up,
One vote for Vytas. One
for Katie. One for Tyson... And the rest of them are
going to VYTAS. VYTAS BASKAUSKAS... THE TRIBE HAS
SPOKEN. You can join Aras in Redemption Island.
BACK AT CAMP... Monica
was told to vote for Katie... BUT with the reaming she
got, she changed her vote. Gervase notes that if
anything happened because of that, he would've lost it.
Don't rock the vote. One more move like that, and
Gervase will target HER.
DAY 23: REDEMPTION BROTHERS
Vytas and Aras... two
brothers... both guilty by association with each other.
Aras would be just as happy to get out of redemption as
if Vytas was... Vytas... can't say he says the same
IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: Sword vs.
Another Survivor Classic
reimagined. Stack coins on the hilt of a sword. Last one
Monica is the first to
drop her coin... followed by Ciera... Tina... Gervase...
Laura... Caleb... Then Tyson and Hayden.
Katie is safe from the
vote, which buys her enough time to pull an alliance out
of her ass. Tyson is going to see what Tina is doing
taking off into the forest. Answer: looking for an Idol
that isn't there. She's quick. We'll give her that.
That's all Tyson will give her. And that's all Tyson
will give anyone. Tina was RIGHT THERE at the RIGHT
SPOT... but Tyson was there first.
Tina decides to stay at
the location for a while, just to throw off anyone who
believes that she may not have the Idol.
Back at camp, Monica is
trying the whole vote split thing again. But between
who? It could be her! Tyson says they can't split the
vote, because Monica would feel on the bottom, and she's
too wild a wild card to be on the bottom. "Loose cannons
will always shoot off," Gervase agrees, "and nine times
out of ten, they're gonna sink something you're riding
in." So now Monica is on the outs, which seems to be an
24: TRIBAL COUNCIL PART 2: ELECTORAL BOOGALOO
We've gone from a clear
alliance of seven to Tina in trouble. All she could do
is try to find the Idol... with some stalkers looking
onward. She had free time from her captors... "Twice
today." TMI. Her other avenue: finding the crack in the
wall. She calls out Monica: "Lady, you're on the
bottom." Monica doesn't feel that way. Monica responds
by outing EVERY PAIR IN THE GAME!
There's your crack.
Hayden thinks that if
Tina has the idol, then someone out of the seven is
going home. Monica says that it's a silly plan, because
she is extremely trustworthy. Tina says that Monica is
not crucial to numbers. "The only way to ensure there
would be a blindside is that if I found the Idol."
TIME TO VOTE.
Monica: TINA - "Wonderful inspiration. Thanks for the
Tina... DID NOT find the
Idol. ... she's going to find the exit. With five votes,
TINA WESSON... THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
Next week, it's Tina,
Aras, and Vytas for another shot at Redemption.
