This week on Survivor 2013 Caramoan we said goodbye to Phillip and his Stealths R Us “alliance” when he became the second member of the Season 26 jury.
And like all eliminated players, Phillip got cleaned up and sat down for an elimination interview the day after. And surprisingly, Phillip comes off way less crazy in his interview than he has the past couple weeks in the game.
I feel so blessed to be voted back as a fan favorite,” Phillip said of his time in the Survivor 2013 game. “And to play with such a great group of fan favorites. I’m so happy that I got the opportunity to come back out here and play again.”
So what did Phillip learn about Phillip?
“I learned that, Phillp, you can actually come into a game …” he said, “and have an impact. If Malcolm had not found that second Idol, I might still be in the game. I wouldn’t change one single thing about the way I played.”
In what people are calling the BEST TRIBAL COUNCIL ever (and by people, I mean me), this week’s Survivor 2013 Caramoan left not many people without their jaws on the floor. More on that later.
This week’s episode picks up right after the last Tribal Council. Stealths R Us, which is everyone (beyond their control) except for Malcolm, Reynold and Eddie, excuse themselves to talk about the other three. And they’re very obvious about it.
Phillip and company are talking about what they’re going to do next to get one of those three out. And at this point, Cochran is the only one as embarrassed by Phillip’s stupid alliance as I am.
The next day we get right into the Dawn insanity/breakdown. Everyone can hear her just throwing a complete crying fit. What we didn’t know during all the previews was that Dawn had a partial denture that she lost in the water. And she is so self-conscious about it she threatens to pull herself from the game.
But Brenda goes scuba diving and finds her fake teeth. So crisis averted. Embarrassment, however, was not averted.
Welcome back to Survivor 2013 with your host tonight, Drama Dawn. Things kick right off when we learn why Dawn threatened to quit the game. Her teeth. Dawn dropped her retainer in the water and lost it. Yep. They fixed that one quickly.
Let’s get to the real game with tonight’s Reward Challenge. Teams are split in to two sets of five. Orange team: Malcolm, Eddie, Sherri, Andrea, and Brenda. Purple: Reynold, Erik, Dawn, Cochran, and Phillip. They have to run along beams, down a slide, find a bag of balls under mud, then lastly through a rice pit. Once they get to the other side they have to toss them all in a basket to win.
Malcolm leads off and tries to find all the bags in the mud pit first but he takes forever. Purple has a strong lead in the race after Malcolm’s delay and Sherri’s slow progress on the beams. Purple is there and throwing the balls before Orange gets their fourth person to the end.
Survivor 2013 is back tonight with Caramoan’s episode 10 and we’ve got another preview look at the action with promo photos released by CBS.
We’re anticipating the big breakdown by Dawn, plus CBS is teasing “An accident threatens one castaway’s future in the game, and in one of the most shocking Tribal Councils, a huge revelation forces an alliance to scramble and potentially turn on each other.” Sounds like fun.
Check out the images from episode 10 below and then join us tonight for a live blog of the results. Time to find out if Malcolm and his shrinking alliance can survive the insanity of Team Phillip.
We’re ready to see Dawn’s big breakdown based on this week’s Survivor 2013 Caramoan preview, but what about the fallout of that crazy Tribal Council from last week? That’s what we all really want to see.
We’re in luck. In the sneak peek below, we get the first look at the tribe following last week’s crazy Tribal Council.
Malcolm, Eddie and Reynold are clearly on their own as the rest of the tribe break off to talk about what just happened and what needs to happen next. I haven’t seen such an obvious divide in a long time. It’s actually kind of hilarious and crazy. I think I’m going to jump on Team Cochran because he’s the only one who thinks the big Phillip alliance (or whatever it is) is crazy.
Check out the scene below and we’ll see how it all plays out tonight when the episode airs. Speaking of which, be sure to navigate your way back here tonight for live coverage of episode 10 and again tomorrow morning for a full recap of tonight’s show.
