It’s time for the Survivor results with our live blog of tonight’s Blood Vs Water episode. The castaways are nearly down to the finish line with just five members of Kasama left and one set to return from Redemption Island. Newbies are on the ropes as the Vets look ready to knock them out. Let’s see what happens when Ciera and Hayden try to make a move and flip the numbers against Tyson and Gervase.
Tonight’s show kicks off with the tribe returning to camp after having just drawn rocks to decide the last elimination. Katie come up empty and was sent to join her mom at Redemption Island. The odds were with the Vets over the Newbies, but I imagine Tyson was still sweating that one a little.
Over at Redemption Island Tina is facing a decision. If it comes down to her and Katie, will she let her daughter win? Based on what we saw earlier on the latest arena challenge it might be a choice she’ll be forced to make.
This week’s Redemption Island challenge requires the three castaways to build sticks long enough to grab keys and unlock their gate. As soon as it starts Tina is shouting help to Katie.
Laura is moving very fast and has her first key as Tina and Katie still work on their poking sticks. Laura gets all three keys quickly and is done before Tina even gets her first key. That means Laura gets the clue to give to Ciera tonight.
Either Tina or Katie will be eliminated and this won’t be easy for them. Both are fighting for their second key as Katie drops hers in the sand. Dang.
Katie struggles to recover her dropped key as Tina catches up and gets all her keys. Now she asks Katie if she’s okay with it. Katie, continuing to work on her stick, says its okay. Neither pauses as they both fight to survive.
Tina steps through her gate, eliminating Katie from Survivor. It was the right move. You don’t come here to quit (Colton). I’m glad she didn’t throw the comp.
Five castaways face off on Survivor Blood Vs Water tonight and we’ve got your spoilers on this week’s Immunity Challenge.
After rounds of advantage to the lighter, more nimble players this week’s Challenge favors the faster and stronger. Each player will have to thread a buoy from offshore back to the beach. Yep, that means swimming is involved and while that may have been a problem for Week 1 Gervase it may not be any longer. Gervase had a much stronger swimming presence in a recent event and if he can do it again then he should be alright.
Once the player returns his or her buoy to the beach they’ll be on to the second round of the challenge which looks to be a puzzle. So they’ll need strength and speed in the water plus quick hands and a clear mind to navigate the land portion.
Check out the pictures below and see which castaway you think has what it takes to win safety from a vote-out at tonight’s Tribal Council. I’m going to place my chips on Hayden Moss for this week’s win. What about you?
Five remain on Kasama as we head in to tonight’s Survivor 2013 episode just ahead of the season finale. The Vets have the advantage both on the tribe and in Redemption Island. Now it’s a race to see which one can pull off the win.
We have two opportunities for some Survivor drama tonight when Ciera tries to convince Monica to flip and when Katie faces off against her mother at Redemption Island. CBS has teased this will be a wild Tribal Council which makes me think Ciera gets under Monica’s skin with her comments about Tyson and Gervase misusing her. I do not expect her to flip the vote though.
Over at Redemption Island we’ve already seen the Survivor spoilers for what the three castaways will face and once again I’d expect Laura to have a strong showing. Now that CBS has released the start of that challenge it seems like Tina and Katie will have to decide which of them has the best shot at a million dollar victory or at least besting Laura in a later round.
We’ve got a preview of tonight’s Immunity Challenge coming up later this morning so check back in for that. It’s going to be critical for one of the Newbies to win it to insure their safety. This could be Hayden’s chance at winning a physical competition if he’s going to make a move.
Survivor 2013 Blood Vs Water Episode 13 Preview:
This week on Survivor Blood Vs Water the Redemption Island castaways will face a familiar challenge revealed in these Surivor spoilers but that certainly won’t make this one any easier.
Tina, Laura, and Katie are set to arrive at the arena with three keys in between them and a chance to stay alive in the game and even a shot at getting back in to the main circle.
Each player will start with a set of sticks and twine which they must combine to create a poking stick long enough to reach out and snag three rings holding keys. Once they get those keys back they can unlock the three locks on their gate to stay on Survivor.
The concept is simple, but the execution is not. If they build out the sticks too flimsy then it’ll fall apart during the reach or be unable to hold the weight of the key ring.
Perhaps the bigger unknown here is what will happen between Tina and Katie. In this week’s preview we heard Tina tell Katie she’d take a dive for her. If Laura continues to perform as well as she has then we might see something interesting happen between the mother/daughter pair.
Would you throw a competition and chance at a million dollars for a loved one?
There are just five castaways left on Kasama, well that’s before one more return, and the odds are tilting toward one group: the Vets. They’ve had the built-in experience advantage all season and have shown that even when they’re down they’re not out. Well now it seems like they’ve got everything running in their favor.
Hayden and Ciera are all that remain of the Newbies and after this week I’d expect it to be just one of them left. Meanwhile the Vets have Monica, Tyson, and Gervase. They’ve stuck together this long and if they’re smarter than Ciera then they know not to turn on their own. That gives the Vets a 3-2 advantage in the vote this week. Even if Hayden or Ciera won Immunity they could vote out the other. This should be an easy week for them.
In this week’s preview we see Hayden and Ciera devising a plan to split the Vets apart. Ciera goes to Monica with the lie that Tyson and Gervase have been boasting of her as their lap dog. I wouldn’t expect this to work at all, but according to CBS it’s going to be an explosive Tribal Council so maybe Monica takes the bait. No matter if she does or not, I still don’t buy it that she’ll turn on either of her guys. They need each other and are so close to the end at this point it’d be crazy to risk it.
What do you expect to see happen this week on Survivor? Should Monica jump ship and work with the Newbies instead or could it cost her the game?
