Survivor: Millennials vs Gen-X Blog Party - October 5
They're promising a huge twist in the game tonight. We'll be the judge of whether it's good or bad! Later on tonight, I'll be live-blogging the BBOTT CBS All Access show. My apologies for no BBOTT yesterday.
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be live-blogging with the major events. As always, the real party is in the comments area. Please feel free to join in on the fun!

Survivor fans ready? Eighteen are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
The Kids: Zeke and Adam try to make nicey-nice about them being left out of the blindside vote of Mari last night. Hannah tells them that Michelle told her to vote with the majority and she didn't know before Tribal. Hannah won't leave Zeke alone. Adam is worried about having to play up from the bottom. Zeke just wants Hannah to leave him alone for a while. I don't blame him.
Older Kids: David knows it's him, Ken and CeCe at the bottom. Of course, he does have an idol. Paul is feeling 100% once again. But he goes fishing as an expert and catches nothing but a wave.
Tree Mail -- They have to do a random draw of rocks. The Orange rock recipients Will, Figgy, Jay and Taylor get to go do "recon" on the other tribe at a Summit. CeCe, Paul, Chris and David go as the Older Kids. Paul started thinking the kids would love him as a father figure. David hopes he can use kids after the merge to get rid of Paul. David had a good talk with Taylor, but he promised to betray his own tribemates. Will that go over well? CeCe and David both talked to Figgy and Taylor about the perils of Paul.
Older Kids: Ken, who doesn't like to be called Ken Doll, goes fishing and (unlike Paul) catches fish. He talks to Jessica about Paul. But she thinks her commitment to the others is best for her own game.
Kids: Taylor feels all comfortable with his Figs. Adam is worried about his own status with the tribe. He tries to talk Michaela and Hannah into voting out either Figgy or Taylor next Tribal. Michaela, sort of like Jessica, prefers the idea of sitting in with the majority players at this point.
Immunity Challenge time! Carry heavy bags over and under obstacles, over a balance beam, knock down a puzzle with the coconuts from the bags, then put together the puzzle. Reward is comfort items.
The Kids -- Millennials -- win Immunity and Reward!
The Kids want to switch comfort for fishing gear. Gen-X don't want to switch. So the Millennials are stuck with comfort items.
CeCe's poor performance in the challenge might have put more of a target on her back. Paul is certain it will be unanimous (so it probably won't be). Bret agrees. So does Sunday. Hmm. While she did poorly, Paul wasn't any rock star in the comp! At least she carried her own bag. Ken, David and CeCe are thinking Paul should go.
Aha! Paul's own mouth got him in hot water. Lucy and Jessica are considering voting him out!
Tribal Council time with Probsting questions of the castaways. Paul feels little anxiety because of his six.
Paul, CeCe, Paul, CeCe, Paul, CeCe, Paul, Paul ... five, it's enough. They flipped the vote!
Paul is voted out!
