Survivor Blood V Water – Each Week A Different Alliance Occurs
Jeff Probst needs to start enforcing some rules on Survivor last week he let Laura M just about do Tina’s puzzle for her and tonight he let a free fall all lobbying effort occur at tribal council. It is turning into a free for all.
But first Redemption Island. Tina has been having some luck in the challenges in Redemption Island. Unfortunately in real life this week Tina and her family have been struck by tragedy with her son being killed in a car accident.
Last week Laura M helped her with a puzzle when she was way behind which saw Vytas eliminated and tonight Caleb’s card tower collapsed just before the time limit for the building finished. Caleb was eliminated from the game and joined Aras and Vytas on the jury.
Hayden was scrambling tonight as he knew that he was next to go. He told the whole tribe including Tyson, that if they took Tyson to the final three he would be the one to win.
He tried to work on Gervase and Ciara to get them to vote with him and Katie to eliminate Tyson. He was telling Ciara she was number four in the Tyson, Gervase, Monica alliance. Also he told Gervase that he would be number two to Tyson.
Gervase was not swayed but clearly Ciera was. Ciera who has been playing a good game looked like she was in a solid alliance but now she was thinking of flipping. Interestingly if she had not dobbed on Caleb’s and Hayden’s plan to vote Tyson out last week she would not have been in this predicament.
At tribal council things went cray cray with Hayden lobbying Ciera telling her to vote with Katie and him to push it to a rock draw, and Tyson was saying vote with him.
Right before she voted Tyson leaned across and whispered in her ear “stick with me and Monica we can do this”.
In the end Ciera, Katie and Hayden voted for Monica to make it a three all vote. Then Monica and Hayden went head to head in a vote. It remained a tie. At that point Jeff said if they could make a unanimous decision that person would be eliminated. If not Hayden, Monica and Gervase were safe and Katie, Ciera and Katie would have to draw rocks. This is what they did. It was the second time ever in Survivor this has ever occurred.
Katie pulled the white rock and was sent to Redemption Island. The only winner tonight was Hayden who was now safe again for another week.
It was an interesting move particularly if they had knocked Tyson out however Katie as a swing vote once Hayden went could have kept her safe. Ciara has busted her rock solid alliance and Tyson is still there. However previews for next week indicate that Ciera starts chipping away at Monica who is paranoid. Also surely the person from Redemption Island has to come back into the game soon.
