Last week on Survivor 2013 Caramoan, we were treated to a very interesting Tribal Council. One of the best parts was Malcolm convincing Reynold to give him his Immunity Idol, even though he was sitting on his own.
Survivor host Jeff Probst talked about the Tribal Council to Entertainment Weekly this week.
“Brilliant. This is one of the big differences between Malcolm and Ozzy, with whom he is often compared,” Jeff said. “He learned a lot from playing the first time and he’s putting it to use. I don’t think it says anything negative about Reynold. Reynold, Malcolm and Eddie are scrambling, and from Reynold’s point of view it was a risky but worthy move.”
Oh, and we get a nice little hint from Jeff that things might get crazy again this season.
“I love it when Tribal gets crazy,” Jeff said. “This isn’t the last crazy Tribal Council we’ll have!”
We’ll see you back here for Survivor 2013 Caramoan on Wednesday night with out live coverage of this week’s episode.
This week on Survivor 2013 Caramoan, Michael was voted out and became the first member of the Season 26 jury. And like every other contestant, he sat down for his exit interview the day after. And we’ve got that for you now.
Michael’s interview is all over the place. It’s so all over the place I can barely pull out many coherent quotes, so you’re just going to have to watch the video and decipher it for yourselves.
What I can tell you is that Michael made some great memories.
“Survivor was adveture, struggle, a lot of laughter,” he said. I”t’s going to be a whole slew of amazing memories.”
And what was his best moment? “When I actually did achieve a challenge with the guys,” he said. “We were so thrilled.”
Find out what else Michael had to say in his exit video below and we’ll see him again next week when he sits in on Tribal Council.
This week’s episode of Survivor 2013 Caramoan is being called one of the best in years because of what went down during Tribal Council. I’m just going to award it the most confusing episode ever.
At the start of the episode, we get a Phillip and Sherri scene that was just creepy and uncomfortable. Thankfully we get right to the reward challenge.
The tribe meets up with Jeff Probst. He tells him they’ll divide into two teams of five. It’s sort of a game of soccer only there’s water involved and they can use their hands.
The winning team will repell down a waterfall for a picnic lunch. Sweet.
Purple: Eddie, Erik, Reynold, Michael and Cochran
Orange: Brenda, Andrea, Dawn, Phillip and Malcolm.
Sherri was not picked.
Purple wins. Duh. The only surprise there was that Malcolm was not on the purple team.
We’re back on Survivor 2013 with ‘The Phillip Show’ featuring everyone’s crazy special agent. He’s bent on controlling the game and he just might do it as the Favorites continue to dominate the game and decimate the Fans. Let’s find out if tonight’s Survivor keeps that theme alive.
First challenge of the night is for the luxury of traveling to a waterfall, rappel down it, and then enjoy a lunch at the bottom. Sounds like a mission for a special agent.
Teams are split 5-5 and feature four players throwing balls at a net protected by the 5th member of the other tribe. First team to four points wins the reward.
Purple team: Reynold, Erik, Eddie, Cochran, and Michael.
Orange team: Dawn, Phillip, Andrea, Brenda, and Malcolm.
Brenda scores the first point for Orange. Erik ties with a score for Purple. Andrea keeps it going for Orange with a second score and they lead 2-1.
Cochran ties it up with a score for Purple after a series of Orange misses. It doesn’t last long though as Phillip puts Orange back in the lead. Eddie keeps it close by scoring and makes it 3-3. Next point wins it.
Just ahead of tonight’s show we’ve got some Survivor spoilers for you with tonight’s immunity challenge, “Last Gasp.” This one looks pretty great because it’s simple yet difficult. No complicated sets and elaborate mechanisms, just a castaway and their breath.
The Survivor Caramoan players position themselves below a grate during low tide and see who can overcome waves and fear to remain at their spot the longest as the water rises and the pressure mounts.
This week John Kirhoffer, the Survivor Challenge Producer, joins in to compete with the Dream Team so you’ll have to watch and see how he does.
