Survivor: Worlds Apart - May 6 Blog Party
Survivor fans ready?
While I'm not finding most of the castaways this season all that likable, recent happenings should provide interesting viewing for tonight. How will the others react to Mike's very public "save Shirin with my idol" bluff? Now, of course, they all know he has an idol. Thanks to Tyler's snooping, it's also known by some that Dan has two votes at a future tribal.
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
Sierra - Jennasmom
Tyler - Donna in Alabama, ORK Mommy
Will - Rbennie
Let's get started!
Mike is just a bit too smug. The others are having a big kerfuffle over the votes that were from their own camp. Dan knows Will and Tyler cast votes for him.
Tree Mail gives them the promise of food.
Reward Challenge time. Divided into two teams, a convoluted walk through net, catapult balls into target. The reward is that they deliver supplies to a nearby orphanage with a big barbeque. Someone must sit out as they have seven. Dan, Tyler and Rodney. Carolyn, Sierra and Mike. Will can't play.
Mike, Sierra and Carolyn win Reward. Rodney whines that it's his birthday and he hasn't been off the island. No one falls for it. "They just turned me into the psychotic person I am," Rodney tells us. Hmm. That would imply he was previously psychotic and they just triggered him.
Carolyn bonds a bit with Mike at the orphanage ... at least it might suit her game. Rodney continues to whine back at the camp.
Rodney tells the guys at camp he's going to act crazy and wants to go home. Then they blindside Mike who won't use his idol because Rodney is the target. Yeah, right. I'm sure that will work. @@
When the others return to camp to Rodney's whining they should all just write his name down. Mike sees right through it. Tyler knows that he's still a target for Mike and wonders if Carolyn will save him with her idol.
Immunity Challenge time. Balance over water on a small perch holding onto a rope with strategically placed knots. Every five minutes, they move their hands down a knot and increase the angle. Will is out, then Dan. Sierra out, then Rodney. Mike is down. Tyler is out. Carolyn wins Immunity again!
Carolyn suggests a split vote between Mike and Tyler. It will flush out Mike's idol. Will she use the idol on Tyler? Or will Dan go in a clever ruse? Carolyn is torn between her Tyler alliance or going with Mike. In talking to Tyler, she wants Dan ... or does she? She's worried about Dan's two vote advantage.
Tribal - Dan votes Mike, Mike votes Tyler.
Mike plays his idol.
The tally -- Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Tyler, Tyler.
Tyler is gonzo.
Jeff points out that everyone wants to take the weakest to the end.
For next season, we vote on returning castaways at CBS.com. Fun, fun, fun.
