Survivor 2015 saw another blindside last night as former white collar tribe member Joaquin Souberbielle’s torch was snuffed. Now he’s all cleaned up and fed and ready for his exit interview.
Fans everywhere are surely cringing as he likens Survivor to camping … as in he’s never been. OK, buddy. If that’s what you got out of Survivor then OK. So needless to say, he thinks he handled his first camping experience pretty well, considering the elements. His biggest downfalls were the people and his competition prowess, he says.
“You can’t even spend 24 hours for a week with your best friend because you want to kill each other by day 3 … you clash,” Joaquin said. “But that’s what makes this game perfect. All these different personalities living together trying to be unified. It’s really special. I learned a lot; A lot about people and a lot about myself.”
Joquain said if he ever gets the chance to return, he knows that he should lay a little lower and befriend everyone and not just a few people.
“My plan was terrible,” he admits. “I should have taken a couple of losses instead of being such a challenge beast. I’m extremely social. Maybe I was too social.”
Check out what else Joaquin has to say in his exit interview below.
Nothing like a good blindside on Survivor and it feels like an even bigger treat when it comes as the result of a thrown competition that actually worked out as planned. That was lucky for Mike Holloway who decided the new bromance between Joaquin Souberbielle and Rodney Lavoie needed to come to an end.
Perhaps Mike and his cohorts on Escameca are hoping that with Joaquin gone they’ll bring Rodney back in to their fold, but will he be too bitter to accept them again? They better figure that out quickly though because we’ve got ourselves a Tribe Merge ahead next week on Survivor 2015.

Another castaway was voted off Survivor last night when the two remaining tribes faced off in a pair of challenges for Reward and Immunity. Who went home this week on Survivor? Let’s find out.
Dynamics have shifted in a big way as the alliances were split and merged thanks to the Collar tribes coming to an end and the castaways scattered between a new blue and red tribe division. Red tribe came up short last week and with it was the end of Max’s game. Will the White Collars continue to get picked off as the weaker players or is it time to go after a big target?

First up we’ve got the Reward Challenge with an all new competition called Air Raid where the castaways take turns sending sandbags through the air at 6 targets 150 feet away thanks to more slingshots like last week.

The reward is pretty awesome and takes them out to watch a turtle egg hatching event where they’ll also feast on lots of tasty goodies.
Dan Foley sits out for Escameca as they tear up the challenge and are way ahead of Nagarote who is struggling to get all their players to the starting mat. Say goodbye to that big lead though as Rodney Lavoie is up first for Escameca and does what he does best in challenges: flails.
Things even up again at 2:2 before Sierra Thomas picks another one up for the Blue tribe and soon so does Mike Holloway. 4:2 for Blue when Carolyn Rivera makes up for Hali Ford’s failures and closes the gap.
It’s a memory based competition this week where the teams send one player at a time each to study a series of objects and then recreate the setting on the other side of the field.

Round 1: Rodney vs Carolyn – Carolyn gets the point for Red
Round 2: Sierra vs Hali – Hali gets another point for Red
Round 3: Joe vs Will – Joe gets first point for Blue
Round 4: Dan vs Shirin – Dan ties it up for Blue
Round 5: Mike vs Kelly – Mike whispers to Kelly that he’s throwing it to her…
The two tribes will face off with one player from each side at a time studying an arrangement of objects before racing back to the other side where they’ll have to recreate the design using lanterns, pots, and other various items. Yeah, I’d be terrible at this challenge.
Take a look at the sneak peek pictures below for this week’s Survivor Worlds Apart challenge and get ready to join us tonight at 8PM ET for our live coverage as another castaway is eliminated. We’ve also got an early look at the next Reward Challenge which is a lot bigger in scope and effort.
Which tribe do you think has the advantage in this week’s Immunity challenge?
Survivor 2015 returns to its regular one-hour run tonight on CBS at 8/7c when the remaining Season 30 Worlds Apart castaways face two new challenges on the field and plenty more back at camp as the new tribes settle in.
We’ve seen in this week’s preview that Rodney Lavoie and Joaquin Souberbielle have their new blue tribe, Escameca, worried over their budding bromance which crosses the divide of the former tribes which shuffled last week down to just two tribes. With just 13 castaways left on Survivor they’ll all be looking for any excuse to put the target on someone else’s back and a power couple is also good for Tribal Council cannon fodder.

Tonight’s Survivor 2015 episode is called “Odd Woman Out” and a preview clip says “one castaway struggles to fit in after a shocking tribal council” which I’d say points to Shirin Oskooi who just saw Max Dawson voted off thanks in part to Carolyn Rivera flipping on their tribe. If Nagarote heads back to Tribal Council tonight then I’d say Shirin is in a bad spot on Survivor.
Check out the sneak peek video clip below to watch the first minute of tonight’s Reward Challenge “Air Raid.”
