Update: Survivor 2010 and 2011 will be filmed in Nicaragua on Big Corn Island off the Eastern Coast.
It looks like we are going to have separate reward and immunity challenges this week on Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains. In the this challenge we are in the water for some basketball. Three members of each tribe race through the water to grab a ball and try to shoot it into their basket while the other tribe attempts to stop them. I hope someone doesn’t drown!
Why is Russ trying to baptize Rupert in the second picture lol?
For the next challenge we are climbing a rope in a web looking contraction. One at a time the team members must climb a rope and cross a net to grap an item and bring it back. The first to get all their items in the basket wins. Colby needs to step it up for the Heroes because they pretty much laid it all on the line for him.
We all know the Heroes win because we watch the final showdown between Rob and Russell where Jerri is the deciding vote to send Rob packing. According to blackwhale this is the final storyline for Russ and by Episode 8 Parvati will emerge as running things for the Villains. I can’t wait to see if this spoiler is correct but I’m betting it is. For some reason Russ is totally smitten with this chick.
Vidcaps from Survivor Phoenix.
How do you think all this will play out?
REELING FROM A SHOCKING TRIBAL COUNCIL, THE VILLAINS SEEK TO REGROUP BUT WITH TWO SOLID ALLIANCES OF THREE PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER; ONE LUCKY PAIR FINDS THE FATE OF THE TRIBE IN THEIR HANDS, ON “SURVIVOR 2010: HEROES VS. VILLAINS”
Two solid alliances of three would be Russ, Parvati and Danielle against possibly Rob, Sandra and Courtney and with Coach and Jerri as the deciding factor in the Russell vs. Rob showdown. Jerri isn’t over her last encounter with Boston Rob so Rob will learn the hardway that old grudges die hard.
From Blackwhale: Coach does not vote against Rob or Russell because he has told both of them he would not write their names down. He votes for Courtney and Jerri is the one who votes out Rob because of what he did to her in All Stars.
Because Coach put down Courtney’s name, this leads to his demise and by Episode 8 we will see Parvati emerge as the power player and she is not concerned with Russ’s welfare. So it could possibly be who Parvati takes to the end and not who Russ takes. Should be interesting to see this all play out.
Who coined the phrase I’m not a good villain?
The old Russell Hanz from Survivor Samoa is back on Survivor 2010 with his strategic game play and he schooled Boston Rob on exactly what he can do. Our first look at the Villain’s tribe in this episode is Rob and Russ as the only ones awake and Russ tries to make Rob think he’s not coming after him. Rob runs his mouth about Russ looking for the idol. What the hell was Russ suppose to do? The villains were idiots for not looking for it themselves so it is 100% their fault Russ found it.
On the Heroes’ tribe Colby knows his time is coming and he pretty much gives up hope. I’m really feeling sorry for him about this time because I do like him and he is one of the great players of all times. Even James gives him props on that.
It is time for the Immunity/Reward Challenge. Jeff lets everyone know they will be playing as individuals and not as a team and the winner from each tribe will face off for a tribal reward. We start the rope challenge with the Heroes and James does very well and probably would have won if it hadn’t been for his knee but Candice comes up the victor. (kudos to skotie68 for figuring that out). The Villains are up next and Rob takes the lead with Tyson and Russell right behind. Tyson won this challenge in his previous season but he is no match for Rob and Rob easily wins. He and Candice face off in the reward showdown and once again Rob wins reward for his team.
The reward is a feast of hotdogs and soda while watching the Heroes at Tribal Council. Did I mention this is a double boot?
Rob comes up with the plan to vote out Parvati but convince Russ they are voting him out. Rob didn’t read Russ too well and even though he had never seen Russ play he is on the Villain side. He should have known Russ wouldn’t back down. Rob is in a big position of power with his immunity necklace so the majority of the camp are following him. Russ figures out what they are doing and considers giving his idol to Parvati. Rob then comes up with the plan to split the votes as 3 to Russ, 3 to Parv and their 3 to Tyson. (Their being Russ, Parv and Danielle). BUT Russ once again figures this out and puts his own plan in motion. He convinces Tyson that he was going to vote out Parvati so Tyson changes his vote. How great is that? You gotta love Russ because if it wasn’t for him last season would have been doomed and we wouldn’t have anyone to cheer for this season.
At Tribal Council Sandra runs her mouth like she always does and tells Russ if you don’t have the idol you best look for it. Can’t stand floaters and that is all Sandra is. In fact you can pretty much call the last year on reality tv the year of the floaters. SUCKS! It is now down to the vote and all is seemingly going as planned until Russ plays the idol for Parvati and the look on Rob’s face when Tyson is eliminated is just what I was waiting for.
Back on the Heroe’s Tribe Colby tells them not to go scrambling behind his back that he knows he is going home and blah blah blah. James is disappointed to see Colby give up like that. The rest of the team is talking about getting rid of James instead and Amanda lets James know they want to see him run and that he needs to quit stealing banana’s lol. James is a big boy and I bet he has to eat a lot of freaking bananas to get full. Who can blame him? Hell he’s hungry. James and JT race and JT easily beats him. At tribal the Villains eat their hot dogs in front of the Heroe’s and watch as Jeff questions the team. The Villains leave before the vote and James is sent packing and says he will be drunk in about 5 minutes lol. I think James was relieved to get his knee seen about.
What are your thoughts on the episode tonight?
A new week with a new time so don’t forget to set your DVR’s if you are unable to watch episode 6 of Survivor 2010 Heroes vs. Villains.
We’ve got a lot to get in to the 1 hour show including the double boot that will send Tyson and James packing. Missyae thinks the James boot is for sympathy and the feeling is mutual between him and the tribe. This would explain why Rupert and Amanda vote him out. Rob should win individual immunity and with Russell having the idol and passing it off to Parvati we will say goodbye to Tyson.
Lots of idols coming into play with people passing them around to each other so things should get pretty confusing in the upcoming episodes. JT will find one and then give it to Russell before the merge. Russell will use it against him after the merge to get him out. Should be some great stuff coming up. I know we aren’t fans of the idols but you got to admit, it’s going to get real interesting.
Check in with us later as we break down the show and join the pre show discussions on the site.
This week is the double boot episode for Survivor 2010: Heroes vs. Villains and in the previews we get some great shots of the challenge where each tribe will play for individual immunity.
Survivor Phoenix had a great layout of the challenge:
This challenge is called “Rope a Dope” and each player is tied to a rope and must manouver themselves in, over and through the fence through the ropes to the end. First one to complete it wins individual immunity. It is speculated that the two winners will play each other for a tribal reward. I’m guessing Rob and maybe Colby win immunity as they would be my first guess to get voted out.
As you can see the immunity necklace is pictured beside Jeff. Who do you think will win immunity this week?
