Get ready for the merge tonight on Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains and what is sure to be an explosive Tribal Council as not one but two idols are played.
The heroes and villains merge into black and become yin yang so it will be interesting to see how Russ handles JT and what happens when Parvati and Amanda meet back up. Will Parvati stay true to her alliance of Russell and Danielle or get swept back into her friendship with Amanda? Will Sandra get to Rupert when she tells him there is not an all girls alliance? Find out the answers tonight at 7C/8E.
Join us here for all pre and post show discussions.
This week on Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains we get to see The Merge. The Villains will relocate to the Heroe’s camp and both tribes should enjoy a feast in place of the reward challenge.
It looks like the spoilers are correct and the merge tribe is black so the tribe name is probably correct with yin – yang. The yin is the dark, negative feminine side and the yang is light, positive and masculine.
The Immunity Challenge has been used at least twice in the past and the players will now compete for individual immunity. The castaways will hang on totem poles to see who will last the longest. Blackwhale from sucks says “Someone asked about Candice in the totem pole challenge where you wrap your arms and legs around. She did well, and gave Parvati a run for her money, but Parvati still won. This is the first challenge after the merge. JT did pretty well too.” If only JT could have hung on a little longer.
Parvati makes the whole thing look easy and it must be for her since she wins immunity. She also has an idol and Russell has another one. I’ve seen spoilers that say Russ will hand off his idol to Parvati who then gives it to Jerri before the merge and I’ve seen spoilers that say Parvati has both idols and hand them both out in TC to Jerri and Sandra. Either way all the Villains are safe and JT will be sent to visit Coach and Courtney at the Ponderosa.
The heroes will be down by one and it should be fun to watch their jaws hit the floor when they find out they’ve been played by Russell.
Thanks to SP for vidcaps!
CBS PRESS RELEASE: A Hero takes a gamble and places his trust in one of the game’s most notorious villains, on Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains. Reunited on the merged tribe, two old friends rekindle an alliance but trust doesn’t come easily for this powerful pair. One castaway makes an unprecedented play, setting the stage for one of the most surprising tribal councils in survivor history.
Update: check out Killer K’s assessment of the hidden immunity idols at Reality Rewind.
Survivor 2010 begins with Sandra giving herself props for voting Coach out. I guess she is due for one especally after such an obvious move as that. Jerri however was blindsided and is worried she is next but is reassured she is not.
For the reward challenge the tribes have to label from strongest to weakest and that is who they will be paired against from the other side. Russell is going to sit out. The challenge is bracing yourself between two walls with your forearms while standing on a small foothold. After ten minutes you move down a step until the last one which is only a 1/4 inch wide where you stay as long as you can. The Villain women sweep it across the board and they will now enjoy a dinner and drinks from Outback Steakhouse. It looks like they are starting with a wallabe darned. I love those! And then move on to the salad where Parvati finds a clue to the HII hidden in her napkin. She only tells Danielle about it and they go searching for it and find it all behind Russell’s back. Parvati says she’ll tell Russ what he needs to know and right now he doesn’t need to know. She says Russ is not the king of Survivor but she is the queen and even the king does what the queen tells him to do. Sounds like Parv may be running things more than we think.
The Heroes are back at camp and JT comes up with the plan to pass off his HII to Russell with a note telling him to vote off Parvati. The entire tribe goes along with the idea but Amanda does seem a little skeptical. If JT had read the situation right it would have gone down as the best move in survivor history but not having seen Russ’s gameplay JT falls right into his hands.
At the immunity challenge Sandra sits out for the Villains. Each member stands on a platform in the water, when Jeff says go a member from each tribe races with a bag of puzzle pieces along a rope and go over and under obstaclesinthe water. When all five bags are at the start, they will make a totem pole and the first to complete it wins immunity. The Heroes easily defeat the Villains. Colby and Russ are the last two on the platform and Colby asks Russ if he is going home next. Russ says yes and Colby lets him know JT has something for him to use at TC and to get rid of Parvati. Russ is about as happy as a freaking clam. He can’t believe they are going to hand him an idol. He said I don’t even have to search for the idols, people just hand them to me. The whole time I’m thinking please don’t tell anyone Russ. Keep this to yourself.
Russ runs to Parv with the note and they get a good laugh at JT’s expense. Russ is a complete fool for telling Parvati and Danielle about the idol. I don’t know why he has such a big mouth and can’t keep anything to himself.
At TC, Courtney is voted out and even Sandra wrote her name down. Hmmm.
What did you think of this episode?
It’s Thursday so that means we get another hour of Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains! Should be a great show with JT pulling one of the dumbest moves in survivor history. Of course we won’t see how it all plays out until Episode 10.
The Villains win the reward tonight and finally get to eat. Parvati and Danielle will fin the clue to HII and not share it with the others. Pretty slick move since Russ has gone out of his way to help Parv stay in the competition. Goes to show she is just using him to advance his game. Will he take a back seat and let her control the game from here on out? I’m thinking not.
We will be around all day so join us for any pre show discussions and after the show as we break it all down.
