Tony’s decision on Survivor 2014 Cagayan to vote out Trish last week left a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering why he’d do such a thing. Now we get to hear directly from Tony on his decision.
The choice to vote someone out is going to come down to whether this person could help or hurt your game. Trish was a very close ally to Tony and would likely have never turned on him. Keeping her in the game would be a smart move as it’s one less person to stab him in the back. But with just five people left in the game it’s time to start thinking about the Survivor Jury.
In a Secret Scene clip from CBS, Tony explains his Survivor strategy for voting out Trish. Tony knows that Trish is a locked vote for him as would be Woo. On the other hand, he does not think Kass would ever vote for him nor would Spencer vote for Kass. Considering the flow of votes Tony decided his best endgame move would be to send a locked vote to the Jury.
Considering the timing of this clip (before the latest Immunity Challenge), it seems Tony was ready to send Woo or Trish out last week and it came down to Trish since he became aware the others were moving in that direction. Too bad he didn’t decide to just roll with their votes and keep his in support of Trish to avoid her figuring it out, like she did at Ponderosa. Listen to his explanation in the clip below.
Tony explains his flip-vote on Survivor Cagayan:
For the first time since the debut season of Survivor we’ll be getting the big finale event on Wednesday. Perhaps emboldened by the season’s strong ratings CBS decided to ditch the Sunday finale format and keep the season conclusion on its regular night.
That means Survivor will go up against American Idol for its finale show on Wednesday from 8-10PM ET/PT.
We’ll be here watching and live blogging the whole show so be sure to join us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates as we head toward the Survivor 2014 season finale this Wednesday on CBS!
Survivor Cagayan Finale:
Next time on Survivor 2014, the Cagayan season finale has arrived. One of the final four castaways will be crowned the Sole Survivor and walk away with a million dollar prize.
We just saw Trish, Tony’s closest ally, sent to Ponderosa which could leave him in a vulnerable state. His Idols have run out and he’ll have to get past this next hurdle on his own. Wait, make that possibly two more hurdles.
From comments Jeff made this week in an interview it sounds like there will be two more Immunity challenges leaving us with a Final Two instead of the typical three facing off at Jury.
Jeff confirmed that Tony’s Special Idol no longer works, but as EW pointed out, Jeff didn’t confirm that to the rest of the players, so Tony’s lie could work a little longer.
Who do you hope to see make it to the Jury vote in the Survivor 2014 season finale of Cagayan next Wednesday? Yes, next Wednesday and not this Sunday!
We’ve grown accustomed to Survivor having a final three, but this season it seems we may be going one step further before the final Cagayan Jury vote.
In an interview with Jeff Probst at EW.com, Jeff reveals there are still two more challenges ahead in the final episode:
As for the finale itself, still more surprises to come regarding how it finishes and two of the most exciting challenges of any finale.
With just four castaways left and two more challenges ahead, if they are both Immunity competitions then we’re looking at two more eliminations. That would send only two players to the Jury for their big decision.
We’ve heard rumors for awhile now that there’d be a F2 this season instead of a F3, but a lot of Survivor spoilers for Cagayan turned out to be wrong. Looks like this one could be true. What do you think?
Don’t forget, the Survivor 2014 finale is next Wednesday and not this Sunday night.
Update: In the latest Survivor promo from CBS it’s confirmed. Jeff announces “Four Castaways. Three Tribal Councils. Two Hours…” So yes, It’ll be a Final Two this season.
Thanks to reader JacinJax for the tip.
As soon as Trish left Tribal Council you could tell she was feeling better and ready to be out of the game. Meeting with the Survivor medical team we find out she’s lost just 10 pounds though she looks emaciated. She’s ready to be at Ponderosa and chowing down on some good food.
When Trish arrives at Ponderosa the rest of the Jury is less than thrilled to say hello. Then they hit her with a bombshell: Tony flipped. How did they figure that out?!
I couldn’t believe Tony flipped since he didn’t need to (Woo was the deciding vote), but I thought as long as Trish doesn’t realize because she didn’t see that last vote then Tony will keep her in his Survivor finale pocket. Maybe not.
Sarah says she could tell because he kept his eyes down after voting and they could hear him say his vote was strategic, not personal. Can the Jury always hear what the voters are saying? Yikes. Everyone agrees that Tony voted her out.
Once Trish realizes Tony voted her out she’s upset, but not terribly so. She’s more excited to have clean clothes, food, and a shower. Of course that just upsets LJ and Jeremiah who desperately wish they had a shot to get back in the game.
