Wow! What a great episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice move taking out Karishma. Could've easily been Noura, but that's ok. Noura seems likely to be next to go by most people anyway considering how Dean destroyed her game. But, as revenge, Noura hid his shoes on top of the flag to signify that he could be next to go. The next morning, an idol hunt began. Dean and Elaine got up to search, knowing that they were big targets, possibly on their way out without the idol. But, Janet & Tommy also went looking and then, it happened. Janet found the idol, nice job Janet! So now, she & Tommy are in possession of it. But, Dean & Elaine caught them, so now they know that Janet has the idol.
Wow! What an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice job getting Elizabeth out and Karishma playing that idol, nice move. Also, nice way to start off an episode. Loved Ones Challenge. A truly iconic part of Survivor. We got to see each of the remaining castaways reunite with their loved ones in passionate, beautiful and tear filled reunions. Elaine and her girlfriend, Dean and his mom, Karishma and her husband, Janet and her husband, Noura and her sister, Tommy and his girlfriend, Lauren and her husband and Dan and his 13 year old son. All of these were wonderful moments to witness. Then, the challenge. The tribe divided into pairs to get through a small course and toss a bag onto a stand. And Jeff, being as kind as he is, knew how Noura's sister was visually impaired, so he let her go with him to watch the challenge with him, moving around so she can actually watch. Nice job, Jeff. Such a great human being. This and many other reasons are why Jeff is the best host ever. The pairs were Tommy & Janet, Dan & Noura, Dean & Elaine and Lauren & Karishma. And Noura's sister was even. It was a close fight but in the end, Tommy & Janet won time with their loved ones and they invited Dan & Lauren to join them on the reward. Obviously, Karishma wasn't happy. None of the people who weren't chosen were happy to not be picked.
Wow, what an amazing episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice blindsides. Aaron & Missy are now gone. They were too big threats so it was interesting to see them go. But also, now Elizabeth has to fight for her life. So, that'll be a challenge all on her own. Especially since after that, when Tommy & Lauren were reunited, they agreed on taking her out. But then Dean swooped in to see to that not happening. Dean's fear was that all of the "goats" in the game would team up and take out the strong players if Elizabeth went home. It made sense, but Tommy was still adamant on getting Elizabeth out. She voted him; he wants her gone.
Well, after such a controversial and big episode last week, entering into this episode is quite the experience. And wow, what an episode it was. First off, Jamal was voted out; decent move, though I did want to see Dan get booted after that whole thing. Anyway, back at camp, I'm proud that Janet didn't quit. I hope she wins it all. She is the strongest person in the game emotionally and it's great she didn't quit. Then, a rat crawled in Karishma's mouth, freaking her out. And then, she slept in and didn't do any work. Not a good move for someone on the outs. So, it seemed obvious that she'd get booted out. But then, she found an idol. Looks like she won't be gone anytime soon. But she showed up an hour later, only to fake sick to make the excuse. But, then Lauren, Tommy & Noura said they'd call over the doctor for her. But, she refused and said she felt better after drinking some water, though Noura was quick not to believe that. But for now, that doctor situation seemed to be avoided.
Wow! What an amazing double episode of Survivor tonight! First off, nice job on the blindside, Kellee & Dean. Great move, until Noura outed you after tribal. Then, there's damage control. Luckily, Janet believed Kellee, but Jamal didn't. But, Kellee then found the idol! So, Kellee isn't in that bad of a spot! Plus, THE MERGE! The tribes are all together into one! And now, it's a brand new game. Some want Vokai vs Lairo, some want mixed, but Tommy wants his own game. Kellee & Janet don't want to join up with Tommy and the new Vokai, then it's nine and they are at the bottom. They want all Vokai, take out all Lairo starting with the four Lairo from the new Vokai and Missy as the first vote. But, Tommy doesn't want that. So, it's a brand new game, who knows who will vote who.
Before I say anything about tonight's episode, I must acknowledge that there has been a tragic loss in the Survivor community. Survivor: Borneo castaway, Rudy Boesch, passed away on November 1. Incredibly tragic news, couldn't help but cry when I heard. He was one of the original castaways in Survivor, he always spoke his mind, he was part of the first Survivor alliance, he fought for our country, and still holds the record for oldest Survivor contestant, first playing at 72. He was definitely a real, original person who spoke his mind, went by how he wanted, is one of the most respectable and legendary Survivors of all time. Thank you, Rudy and you'll be missed.
