Survivor: Worlds Apart - April 29 Blog Party
Survivor fans ready?
When I checked the listing for tonight's show, it mentioned something to the effect of a "confrontational Tribal Council." Huh. Really? It seems like that's the norm rather than the exception!
As the show airs here, I'll update this post with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to "see" you there!
Before we get into the show, here are the latest blog pool standings from that Rockin' Lifeguard Laurie:
Carolyn - Jackie, TerryinTX
Dan - Brian, CherylinNC
Mike - meb, Nickelpeed
Rodney - Margo
Shirin - NanaintheNW
Sierra - Jennasmom
Tyler - Donna in Alabama, ORK Mommy
Will - Rbennie
Let's get started!
Dan pretends to sympathize with Shirin, then turns around and tells us how horrible he thinks she is. Pot/kettle/black in my opinion.
Reward Challenge time -- divided into two teams, transport tribe members with planks and barrels and such across field. The reward is a catamaran trip with burgers and pie. Woot woot. It's a schoolyard pick. Blue is Rodney, Mike, Shirin and Sierra. Red is Tyler, Dan, Will, Carolyn. Red wins!
The four remaining at camp killed off the last chicken. Rodney reminds us he hasn't won not one reward. Too bad, so sad.
Sierra thinks they should get Tyler out, keep Shirin because no one would ever vote for her to win the million. Meanwhile, Rodney thinks he himself is the biggest threat and is sure to win. @@
Dan considers his group on Reward are his allies. We'll see if that sticks.
Immunity Challenge time -- hold onto a rope handle attached to 25% of body weight, eventually weaken, drop water bucket on head. Last man and last woman both win Immunity.
Sierra out, Tyler out, Will out, Dan out, Shirin out. Carolyn wins for the women. Rodney out. Mike wins Immunity (second time in a row) for the men.
The plan is to take Shirin out tonight. She tells Dan they're all incredibly stupid to vote her out. What an approach! She pushes her vote Tyler out agenda. Meanwhile, Tyler snags Dan's bag to see what's inside. Tyler tells Carolyn about Dan's extra vote advantage. Tyler's worried.
Mike knows the vote is leaning towards Shirin. He tells us he could shake up the whole game by giving her his idol. Hmm.
It's Tribal Council time once again. Back to the Will attack on Shirin during the last tribal. Shirin tries telling them that not voting out Tyler would lose them a million dollars as he's the biggest threat and she's no threat.
Mike pulls out the idol before the vote and says he'll use it on Shirin. Is it a bluff? Shirin will vote Tyler and he will randomly vote. Jeff calls it Survivor Roulette.
He does NOT play the idol.
Tyler, Shirin, Dan, Tyler, Shirin, Dan, Shirin, Shirin.
Well played, guys. I didn't think he'd waste the idol on her when he needs it. Now they know he has it.
