Survivor Blood V Water – The Merge
The merge was on last night on Survivor but before they could get their new buffs the three on Redemption Island had to battle it out for survival and a spot back in the game.
John must not have been happy when he saw it was not a puzzle this week but a clinging onto a totem pole challenge. Laura B looked like she was going to be a an early casualty but it was John who fell first and he was eliminated. Laura M barely moved and Laura B dropped to the ground.
The classic was that Ciera Laura M’s daughter said her mum could really ruin her game if she was going to return. Surprisingly Ciera is the like the little mouse she had been getting things done and had made a solid alliance with the other solo players. The mum and daughter had to decide whether to go with the other couples or the solo players. They chose the latter.
Survivor Blood V Water has certainly showed different tactics then the usual with the loved ones having to consider another person. See Brad Culpepper interview where he talks about this.
The previous winners of Survivor appear to be too confident. Tina told Monica she was her number five. Though getting to five as a solo player with two couples would guarantee you top three in theory. So Monica decided to stick with Tyson who is playing a masterful game.
He is very tight with Gervase helped by them pinching the coconut milk together. He has found the idol and was targeting Aras who he calls Sir Aras to the other other players to give the impression that Aras thinks he has all the players under his control.
At the immunity challenge which was a memory game it was down to brothers Vytas and Aras with Vytas looking pretty chuffed that he beat his brother to get the immunity necklace. He would probably be even happier after tribal council where Aras was blindsided and sent to Redemption Island. Aras had thought he and Gervase were still tight. This was not the case and his strategy of getting the girls to vote for Laura M and the boys for her daughter was just bizarre and illogical. As would have meant an alliance of five would have been able to vote out one of the six if a different vote pattern had occurred.
As Aras said Vytas will probably be joining him at the island next week, however everyone has been expecting Vytas to go for weeks….
Just in case let’s give them a bit of love with this interesting interview on EW with Vytas talking about the game thus far.
Trying to get gratuitous shots of Vytas and Aras up but for some reason my computer is borking maybe it can’t handle the heat!
For people who have not been watching Survivor there is going to be a marathon on GO channel this weekend kicking off 2.00pm Saturday. Highly recommended it is a great season and not just because of the eye candy.
