Survivor 2011 returns this week with its seventh episode of Redemption Island with “It Don’t Take A Smart One.” Matt will once again be fighting for his Survivor life in another duel on the Island, but does anyone think Stephanie could finally be the one to take him down?
Back at the camps it is Phillip who seems to share Matt’s invincibility despite his non-stop annoying ways, but until his team takes a beating he’ll continue to be safe, much to our at-home amusement. The preview video below would lead you to believe that it is Boston Rob on Ometepe who is in the real danger, but considering his position in the tribe I don’t think there’s a chance we’ll see him dueling Matt anytime soon.
Do you think Zapatera can pull out of their tailspin this week or will Ometepe continue to walk all over their weakening rivals?
Tonight was the night for continued domination on every level of Survivor 2011 Redemption Island. Winners remained winners while the losers stayed losers.
Matt faced yet another competitor on Redemption Island when Krista arrived following her elimination last week. After a quick dash at the start Krista took an early lead. When it came to close out the duel Matt did what he does best, “winning, duh.” (Are Charlie Sheen jokes too worn out already?) Krista was officially eliminated from this season of Survivor while Matt will wait around for his next battle.
Before the next challenge Stephanie did her best to work Zapatera to get back in their good graces while throwing Sarita under the bus. The tribe seems open to the idea, or at least they don’t seem to care too much for Sarita.
When it came time for the Immunity Challenge Ometepe dominated once again. The challenge was to be the first team to catch 5 slingshot balls. While Zapatera focused on tripping other players, falling down, and mostly missing every shot it was Ometepe who kept their eyes on the ball and came away with the win. Well, really it was Grant who caught 4 of the 5 while Rob picked up one other ball. Another losing round for Zapatera.
Tribal Council brought one heck of a close vote. Torn between whether to get out the dissenter or the weakest, Zapatera ended up with a 2-4 vote. Stephanie came out on the losing end of that equation while Sarita was sent back with her Tribe.
Did the right castaway get sent to Redemption Island? Will Matt be able to keep his streak alive against Stephanie? Whatcha think?
Survivor 2011 is back with the 6th Redemption Island episode, entitled “Red Headed Stepchild.” That would of course be referring to Phillip, no wonder he shaved his head (I kid, I kid!). Once again, with no surprise here, Phillip is picking fights with his tribemates and they just keep putting up with it.
This time around Phillip looks to be upset because the girls are treating themselves to a little relaxing in their bikinis. Wait, what? He wants them to stop hanging around in their bikinis? This man is nuts. Get him off this show immediately!
Back over at Redemption Island, Probst is teasing us that Matt may finally be in danger, but can Krista be the first to eliminate the seemingly unstoppable castaway? I’m guessing he’ll be okay, but you never know.
Check out the preview clip below and then let everyone know who you most want to see safe this week and who you want voted out.
In the fifth Survivor 2011 episode we watched as once again Matt faced a challenger on Redemption Island and Rob’s team continued to grow stronger.
Kristina, last week’s Tribal Council victim, arrived at Redemption Island and gave Matt a run for his money. Of course she didn’t run very fast as it turned out. Matt was able to rebuild the assorted puzzle pieces the quickest and clinched another victory. Sorry, Kristina, but you’ve been eliminated from the show. But before the Redemption show was over Krista and Stephanie offered up their loyalty to Boston Rob should they might when the tribes merge. Classy.
When it came time for the challenge we had a small-team effort waiting for us to watch. One castaway had to vocally lead another blindfolded castaway around a maze to find more puzzle pieces to put together. Stephanie faces off against Rob and comes up empty when he beats her to the punch. Are the cracks starting to spread in Zapatera’s ability to keep winning like they used to?
At Tribal Council, Krista pleads her case but it falls on deaf ears when she’s voted out 5-2. Stephanie can’t be far back on Zapatera’s list for elimination!
Well that whole “return of Russell” for Survivor 2011 kinda fell flat, huh? After being eliminated at Tribal Council during episode 3 we watched as Matt won his second Redemption Island duel and officially, wholly, and completely eliminated Russell Hantz from the season. No worries, I’m sure Russell took it very well…
So this week we’ll catch up with Kristina on her journey to try and knock Matt off his Redemption throne. Meanwhile, back at camp, we will see just how comfortable Boston Rob has become with his hands on an Immunity Idol of his own. The fun might really end up being found over at Ometepe though as the episode synopsis indicates their tribe is coming apart at the threads. Oh Russell’s ladies look ready to get some revenge!
Which Survivor Redemption Island castaway are you most anxious to see get eliminated this week? Have you finally come to peace with Phillip or is he a must-go for you by now?
