Survivor: Redemption Island - 4/27 Episode Blog Party
The show will be starting in about five minutes here on the East Coast. As it airs, I'll update this post with major news while sharing some opinions on what I see both here and in comments. Of course, the comments area is where the real party is! Everyone is welcome to join in, the water's fine! Oh. And bring snacks. Snacks are always good.
Remember to bring your drinks for SAM events -- every mention Phillip makes about being a SAM (special agent man), we drink. Even if it's close. I hope everyone has their designated drivers with them!
Phillip found his shorts and SAM! Three SAMs in the first ten minutes.
Matt's in rough shape out on RI.
Duel time -- Phillip showed off his shorts to Julie. Survivor shuffleboard. Matt is about as unenthusiastic as it gets. Apparently he thinks God's work is done. Whoops! God's not through with him -- Matt stays on Redemption Island. Mike stays with him, Julie goes to the jury.
Andrea feels bad about playing Matt. Grant wants her out, even before Steve and Ralph.
Immunity challenge - log roll. Reward is chocolate cake and milk. There's a "twist package" to be awarded, too.
Rob and Grant -- Grant wins
Andrea and Ashley -- Ashley wins
Ralph and Steve -- Ralph wins
Natalie and Phillip -- Phillip wins
Next round --
Grant and Ashley -- Grant wins
Ralph and Phillip -- Ralph wins
Grant against Ralph -- Grant wins Immunity!
Grant chose Rob then Andrea to share the cake.
The twist will be opened at Tribal.
Rob wants Ralph out next. Grant still wants Andrea, the cake treat was just political.
Rob has his minions thinking if the twist is two players out -- Ralph, then Andrea. Steve is trying to work it against Rob and "Nimrod." They ran to Rob. Now he's thinking Steve should go.
The tally - Rob, Rob, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph, Ralph ... bye-bye, Ralph! Redemption Island for him.
The twist -- a second immunity challenge NOW and another voted off!
Series of symbols on cards. Rob wins! The vote is on. Andrea voted Steve.
The tally -- Grant, Steve, Steve, Steve, Steve.
Now the slaughter will begin. Steve is gone to Redemption. No more Zapeteras left.
