When it comes to the fall Survivor season, a lot of people might be wondering about the spring season and what that will be like. SPOILER. Two contestants from this season will be on the next season. I can’t remember who at the moment, but I think that Zeke and Michaela are the two. That would be weird since that would mean neither of the returnees from this season would be from the gen x tribe. But I can’t remember if that’s right or not as I’m not looking up the information again until the season finale of this season happens. END SPOILER. There is a lot to wonder and know, but I feel that the less one knows, the better. The only thing I’d want to know is who would be in the cast, but only if there are returning players in the cast.
Before I had this blog, there was a time during Survivor: Vanuatu where I was away from home during Thanksgiving. It has been the only time thus far where I was not at home for any of Thanksgiving. Now things have been changing with the years regarding that holiday. The point is, I don’t know where I might be yet for Thanksgiving so I’m not sure when you will get the post of this blog for the episode from before Thanksgiving. Normally I have been able to do them to day they air, but I don’t think that I’ll be able to see it on time this year. We’ll see what happens for sure. Just have a heads up for that in case there’s a future missing blog post towards the end of November. But enough of my ramblings.
In the first segment of the show, we get back to the gen x tribe after their tribal council. Jessica tells Ken about her legacy advantage. The tribe then goes for an idol search party. Some people miss it while David finds it and waits until people are gone before getting it. Why are those who find idols so much more likely to find it? I guess that it’s because few other have their determination to find it. The tribes then go to a challenge and learn about a tribe swap.
In the second segment of the show, they learn of the third tribe being added. Now I finally have to learn the names of the tribes. It turns out that the extra member will go to the new tribe. Did I guess that? I meant to if I didn’t. Tiggy will still exist on their tribe. I miss who is on what new tribe. I’m never good at getting that. Turns out there was not actually a challenge. The new, green tribe immediately starts building a new shelter since they have to. Nice to see them work. Takali, the purple tribe, gets used to their new tribe arrangement. This is where friction between Tiggy starts to happen. Adam (not me) doesn’t like still being on a new tribe with them. He gets a bit cocky with the power he may or may not actually have.
In the third segment of the show, we finally see the Vanua (orange) tribe, but only on the next day. Michelle is worried that things are stacked against her and Zeke due to how the swap worked. Who are the Sooners? I’ve never heard of them before. Chris decides to talk to Zeke and they want to work together. Why is Chris so quick to change sides? Back on the green tribe, Jay is working with the flint but gives up. Michaela then does the flint instead and it able to help with the fire starting. What does this mean for her future? She gets emotional afterwards for reasons I don’t understand.
In the fourth segment of the show, we get to the immunity challenge. I’m guessing that the purple tribe will lose. Sunday costs her tribe time at the challenge. David fumbles a lot at the challenge which seems kind of humorous in a way. It kind of reminds me of how in the Popeye film, Harold Hamgravy was constantly stumbling after his hat in the opening sequence. The purple tribe is winning the challenge, but the green tribe quickly turns things around and they fight for first. They get around evenly matched for the shooting phase. The purple tribe wins first place leaving the green and orange tribes to battle out for second place. The orange tribe loses and has to go to tribal council.
There’s a bit of a storm going on around the area where I live so I hope that this doesn’t affect the show. This does mean that I’ll have to record something on VHS instead of my laptop since the stupid CW doesn’t care about important events being reasons not to air a repeat episode.
In the fifth segment of the show, Chris wants everyone to vote against CeCe, although David isn’t sure if this is what he wants to happen or not. David sure is up to all sorts of different sinister ways. It makes me wonder if he could actually win this whole thing. But doesn’t it seem a bit too obvious? We’ll see. I just wish that he could actually make the numbers flip on his own instead of just using another idol to his advantage. It is hard to tell what is going on at tribal council. David actually says at tribal council that he is with Chris. If I were him, I would just vote out CeCe and save the idol for another day. But I have no clue what is happening going into the vote. Nobody plays an idol. CeCe is voted out of the game.
On the next Survivor, Figgy is dumb in a way and yet another challenge causes medical problems. Why can’t they fix that? Don’t they know by now that these blindfold challenges are going to cause problems most of the time?
Total confessional count: Michaela- 12, Sunday- 3, Figgy- 7, Chris- 10, Adam- 9, Bret- 4, Jessica- 9, Ken- 10, Michelle- 4, Hannah- 5, Zeke- 10, Jay- 7, Taylor- 8, CeCe- 6, Will- 3, David- 18.
New confessionals this episode: David- 4, Michaela- 3, Sunday- 0, Figgy- 1, Chris- 2, Adam- 2, Bret- 1, Jessica- 1, Ken- 3, Michelle- 2, Hannah- 0, Zeke- 2, Jay- 2, Taylor- 2, CeCe- 2, Will- 0.
CeCe had two confessionals this episode, the same number as Michelle, Zeke, Jay, Taylor, Chris, and Adam. Then there are Ken, David, and Michaela who all had higher confessionals this episode with David at the highest with four. Hannah, Sunday, and Will all had no new confessionals this episode. CeCe had six total confessionals in the game, which is more than Michelle, Hannah, Sunday, Will, and Bret. The lowest in terms of the count are Sunday and Will with three a piece. David is still king with the highest count with eighteen total confessionals. Besides him, everyone else who is now in double digits with the total count is Ken, Zeke, Michaela, and Chris. I do wonder if I’m starting to like David. He might be a good player, but his moves could get the best of him. We’ll see what happens. For now, this is Adam Decker, signing off.
