There’s more Survivor fun ahead for us tonight in Episode 9, “Sitting In My Spy Shack.” We can thank kuh-razy Tony for that title as he’s rebuilt his spy station upon a foundation of paranoia that his alliance is turning on him and his chances at the million dollar prize.
After last week’s blindside of LJ, a former close ally of Tony, we’ll have to see if another alliance member will fall or if they’ll turn their attention back to the few remaining members of the New Aparri.
Tonight’s Survivor picks up with Tony building his spy shack by the water well and listening in on Jefra and Trish as they talk about Tony. Uh oh, Tony is worried that Trish thinks he’s acting too well despite saying she thinks they should stick to their alliance with Tony. Go figure.
The castaways head off to the first challenge of the night, “Rove, Rove, Rove Your Boat.” The two teams will compete to collect paddles from floating stations and return to the beach to assemble a “cool Survivor phrase.” No idea what that could be. Ah, so that’s it. “Worth Playing For.” They’ll be competing to win a picnic lunch at a destination.
Orange: Kass, Trish, Tony, & Woo.
Purple: Tasha, Jefra, Spencer, & Jeremiah.
Teams are close as they collect all their paddles and arrive back at the beach. First to solve the puzzle phrase will get the lunch trip. Kass and Woo assembling for Orange. Spencer and Tasha playing for Purple. Neither team can figure it out. Ahh, now Spencer figures it out. Who will get there first?
Purple gets the Reward win! Kass, Trish, Tony, and Woo go back to camp empty. Well not entirely empty. Tony’s head is completely full of fear.
Back at camp Trish finds a fruit tree and sends Woo up to claim a few pieces. As he tries to come down Woo takes a nasty fall but is okay. He fell HARD!
Over at the reward lunch Spencer is ready to work hard on pulling Jefra over to their side. Jefra opens up that she’s worried and that she likes the idea of sending Tony to Ponderosa.
Just as things start to crank up on talks they get letters from home. Jefra is inspired to “jump ships” after reading her letter from home. They agree to form a Final Four. They need to win Immunity to secure this new alliance!
Immunity is back up for grabs. Castaways will stand on an angled plank and balance a ball atop a small plate attached to a poll. At set intervals the players will move down the plank and lower their grip making it all more difficult.
After just three minutes four players are already out. Jefra, Trish, Tony, and then Kass.
Remaining players move down to the next phase. Four remain. Wait, hold that though. Jeremiah drops. That leaves just Woo, Tasha, and Spencer.
Players are now down to the lowest, thinnest part of the plank. Three remain after twenty minutes: Woo, Tasha, and Spencer. One of them will win Immunity.
Survivor spoilers here for the Cagayan Week 9 Reward Challenge. Castaways will be split in to two teams for “Rove, Rove, Rove Your Boat.” See the pics & video below.
Eight Survivor castaways will form two teams of four and have to paddle out off the beach to collect more paddles along the way. Once they’ve collected the full set of paddles tethered to floating boxes they’ll come back to complete a puzzle.
The puzzle portion of the Survivor challenge features a catchphrase from the series written across the boards which they’ll need to correctly assemble and order to win. First team to complete the challenge gets a special treat for the day while the losers head back to camp empty handed.
Check out the pics from this week’s Survivor spoilers and get ready for tonight’s Cagayan episode!
Tonight on Survivor 2014 Tony is back with more paranoia attacks as the numbers dwindle and his fears grow over betrayal by the alliance he’s busily betraying. Good times.
This week’s Survivor episode, “Sitting In My Spy Shack,” is courtesy of Tony’s return to building a shelter and eavesdropping on his fellow tribemates. Last week his “set ‘em up & sell ‘em out” method was very effective on LJ, but how many times can he pull it off before he gets caught?
The Jury is building its numbers and someone else will join them tonight when the castaways compete in a two-team Reward Challenge and another individual Immunity Challenge. The latter will feature a balancing act for both themselves and a small ball on a wooden post.
We’ll be back here live tonight throughout the 8PM airtime on CBS for all the Survivor results and updates during the show. Join us and discuss the show live with other fans as it happens! See you then.
Join us tonight during the show for a live recap with Survivor results on who gets voted off this week.
Survivor 2014 is closing in on the Cagayan season finale in mid-May, but there are still eight castaways left in the game and plenty of opportunities for chaos, Kass-style and otherwise. This week will be no different.
Ahead this week on Survivor 2014 the castaways will receive letters from home (prepare for tears segment), Woo falls from a tree (but how hurt does he get?), and Tony goes full-blown nutso and builds his spy-shack once again. Finding out players are against you is one thing. Getting the entire tribe to bend to your will is another. Tony does the latter very well even if the former isn’t happening.
So far we’ve had a sneak peek at this week’s Immunity Challenge and after the floating balancing act comp we could actually see Tony give the others a run for their Survivor money. Check out the pics below and see this week’s preview video at the bottom.
Survivor spoilers here for this week’s individual Immunity Challenge on Cagayan and safe passage at Tribal Council will require a lot of patience and balance.
The remaining eight castaways on Survivor 2014 will be perched on a balance beam, holding a pole, and balancing a ball atop the small plate. In timed increments the castaways will walk down the plank to a more narrow section, making the challenge even more difficult.
In the last balancing act challenge we saw great performances from Spencer and Tasha. Can they do it again? They’ll need to as their numbers continue to be weaker than the new Solana. Then again, with Tony running the show over there they might just need to sit back and let the other side self-destruct on their own!
Check out all of the Survivor spoiler pics below and then we’ll add the Challenge preview as soon as CBS posts it.
