Survivor Blood V Water – A Walk Out And A Blindside
Colton had the biggest dummy spit ever seen on Survivor. As soon as he realised he had stuffed up by being a bully he knew he had chance of winning so he quit! Complete with going and sitting on his boyfriends lap.
At Redemption Island when Colton told him what he was doing, Jeff Probst was livid. He said you have quit the show twice now and that it was a selfish move. Also he said “We cast a quitter and he quit”. It appears Colton’s medical evacuation in his previous season was bollocks as Jeff also said Colton faked the appendicitis and Colton did mutter it was a bacterial infection.
You have to wonder if Jeff who is Executive Producer that he had been the one pushing for him to be cast when others were unsure.
Colton also moaned that he did not want to turn into that person he was when his back is against the wall. Tyson muttered “you were like that before you back was against the wall”. Jeff refused to let him throw is buff on the fire and with that Colton was gone.
That was not the only drama at Redemption Island.
Rachel who was the latest arrival on Redemption threw Brad Culpepper under a bus saying that he was just lining them all up. After lip from the Gulang tribe, Brad said to Gulang “that is easy for you to say you cheer when you win but you don’t have to vote anyone out.”
Marissa chimed in and said they should be voting out the weaker players in the tribe. Brad shrugged and said “It’s Survivor.” She then responded with a “Fuck you Brad Culpepper”.
Candice won the Redemption Island Challenge easily, with Rachel and Marissa struggling in the over 100 degree heat. Marissa ended up beating Rachel who was eliminated. Candice gave John another immunity challenge clue.
This time John shared it with Brad but said it is best you don’t come looking for it with me as they will know we are looking for it. Brad was not happy.
Tadhana lost the immunity challenge and it was a physical one where they had to push the other person off a pontoon. These combat challenges always see people get injured and low and behold Tyson popped his shoulder.
Sure the producers wanted this to have the drama of relatives literally fighing their family but they could have done something different.
Vytas was the only one enthusiastic about it but he ended up getting beaten by the golden boy brother Aras. Vytas who Aras calls a bit of a bully revealed he always felt inadequate around the golden boy Aras. Aras won a sports scholarship to a University and won a million dollars on Survivor and as he said he was a junkie.
Gervase and Culpepper went head to head first. Gervase won. John beat golden boy Aras.
Tina had to go head to head against her daughter but she did not back down and put her daughter in the water.
Unlike Tina, Cierra’s mother Laura, looked like she was only giving 50 percent effort but still managed to shove her daughter off.
It looked like Cierra was a certainty to be voted off the tribe, but Brad Culpepper was still miffed about the lack of immunity idol clue sharing and was telling the others John might have the idol.
Culpepper was trying to rig it that the others vote for John but he doesn’t so he can draw him back into the alliance later if he gets off Redemption Island.
Then at one stage it looked like there might be a double blindside with Culpepper but in the end John was voted out. What Culpepper and the others need to realise you bust up a solid alliance early it tends to fall apart. We will have to wait and see if this happens.
