We’re down to the final two episodes of Survivor 2012 and tonight we’re getting a spoiler preview of the next immunity challenges the few remaining Philippines castaways will be facing.
This Survivor challenge is called “One Track Mind” and this looks fun. Well, fun for us, but maybe not for them. The players will first have to head across a rope bridge using two planks and leap frog each time by bringing the plank behind them around to the front. If they fall off they have to start over.
Next step requires them to assemble a ball maze puzzle and then navigate that puzzle. The first castaway to finish the challenge is guaranteed a spot in the final four! Watch the challenge tested out below:
Tonight on Survivor Philippines, we’ll be one step closer to find out who is going to win this thing during Sunday night’s finale.
In the preview posted below, Lisa continues to get a winners’ edit as it’s once again all about her.
“The power alliance is crumbling,” the announcer says. “And with just two episodes left, can sweet Lisa take out the biggest threat? ”
So that can only mean that Lisa wants to go to the end with Abi and not Malcolm because she knows who she can and cannot beat. So could we see a Malcolm elimination tonight? Let’s hope not, but it sure would make for some interesting television, right?
Be sure to tune into tonight for live coverage of the episode and the next morning for a full recap of the episode. And then we’ll be back on Sunday for the finale and the crowning of the 25th Survivor champion. And as always, we’ll be here for all of your Survivor 2012 news, results and recaps throughout the week. And you can always join us on Facebook and Twitter to get those sent right to you.
Survivor Philippines is down to the final five, but by this Sunday, we’ll have the 25th winner of the Survivor franchise.
On Wednesday, we get to watch the final five fight for those spots in the finale and then on Sunday, we will watch the latest winner be crowned.
So which of the final five — Malcolm, Lisa, Denise, Abi-Maria or Skupin — will go all the way? I have a few thoughts on that, but I want to hear what your think. Please share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
Host Jeff Probst teases the final two episodes to Entertainment Weekly:
We’re at the point in the show where who you vote out is as important as who you decide to keep. Abi is the wild card. Will she drive people nuts enough to vote her out or can she annoy her way to the final three? It’s a great ending — two more eps!
Be sure to check back here for live coverage of both episodes and stay tuned later for full recaps.
Last week on Survivor Philippines, we got to one of my personal favorite parts of the game: the visits from loved ones. And getting to see the loved ones play the game with the castaways was a nice change to a sometimes monotonous game.
In today’s Survivor 2012 Secret Scene, Skupin talks about what it was like to have his son Michael join the game for a day.
“Nothing was like this hug,” Skupin said of the moment he saw his son walk into sight. “I didn’t care what happened after that.”
What did happen after that was Skupin’s son helped him play the reward challenge, which Skupin now ranks as one of the best moments of his life.
“The dream was ‘dad I hope you get another shot at the million bucks’ … 23 seasons later, I’m playing Survivor with my son,” he said. Survivor is just a game and just a part of a moment in my life. But playing Survivor with my son will rank up there pretty darn high.”
Be sure to check back here Wednesday for the live coverage of Survivor Philippines and throughout the week for all of your Survivor 2012 news and highlights.
Set your calendars because CBS has just announced the Survivor 2013 premiere date. Survivor’s 26th season will debut on February 13th (Wednesday) at 8PM ET.
The latest Survivor castaways will find themselves washing ashore again in Caramoan in the Caramines Sur Province, the location used in Survivor Philippines. That should give us: Survivor Caramoan.
No word yet on any future seasons beyond the 26th as that was the last combo (25 & 26) we heard about over a year ago. Keep your fingers crossed for more Survivor!
Also no details on returning castaways, but considering Jeff Probst has said in interviews that they plan to do a lot of that I would fully expect to see another two or three familiar faces. I actually really enjoyed the three tribes this season so I wouldn’t mind having that come around again, but I’m tired of the retreads. What about you?
