We live blogged the full episode recap here on the site too, but here are the highlights on who won challenges and who was eliminated on Survivor this round.
- Yellow team: Alec, Baylor, Natalie, Jeremy, and Reed
- Red team: Wes, Keith, Missy, Jon, and Jaclyn
- Yellow wins 5-4
- Natalie & Jeremy give up their spots to Jon & Jaclyn
- Jeremy is selected for Exile Island
Hidden Immunity Idol:
- Jeremy sent to Exile to search for the Idol that Jon already found…
- Baylor edges out Reed to win Immunity
Tribal Council – Eliminated Castaway:
The Survivor castaways return from Tribal Council at the start of tonight’s Blood Vs Water episode following the not-so-surprising elimination of Josh Canfield, but what’s ahead promises to be very surprising. At least the target won’t see it coming.
CBS is billing this week’s elimination as the “Biggest Blindside Yet” and with the tribe’s tension set to eleven this should be a good one.
We’re about to see a sloppy Reward Challenge where some winners make another trade and one castaway goes digging for answers in another’s belongings. Think you know which castaways gets voted off tonight? Let’s find out!
Heading back to camp we hear from Reed who is worried about who he can trust meanwhile Jon is feeling good about jumping over to Jeremy’s alliance. The losing side of this split is realizing they’re set to be picked off one by one if they don’t do something fast. Keith might just have an idea on how to use his Idol to make something happen.
A luxury cruise and lunch are all up for grabs in this muddy, messy comp. The tribe is split in to two with Alec, Baylor, Reed, Jeremy, and Natalie on the Yellow team and Jon, Jaclyn, Keith, Wes, and Missy on the Red team. The goal is to knock your opponent off a wobbly balance beam and score a point.
First up we’ve got Wes vs Reed. Wes tries to push off Reed but falls in and loses the match. Now there’s Natalie vs Jaclyn with a lot of moving and shaking, but again Yellow takes the point.
Jon vs Jeremy here and this should be good. Jeremy leans in but Jon pushes him back and off. Red gets a point but Yellow comes back with Missy vs Baylor when Baylor pulls her mom in to win.
Alec vs Keith with plenty of bouncing before Alec loses his balance and Keith takes advantage to get a point. It’s 3-2 as we go back to Reed vs Wes as Wes gets redemption and a point.
Things are tied up 3-3 with Jaclyn vs Natalie with another failed attempt to force Natalie off the boards. Jeremy could win it all if he knocks Jon off the board… nope. Jon gets the point.
Final match is between Baylor and Missy with both hanging on very well. Neither want to make a foolish a move and both hold back but soon Missy goes in and Baylor pulls her off. Yellow wins reward.
Before Jeff sends off the winners Natalie speaks up and gives her spot to Jaclyn. Jeremy soon makes the same swap for Jon. This is a “thanks” to Jon & Jaclyn for their big move last week. Next is to choose who goes to Exile. Baylor announces it’ll be Jeremy and she tells us it’s because she thinks he can find the Hidden Idol to help them. She doesn’t know Jon found it last week.
Over at Exile Island Jeremy is out hunting for the Idol and starts to realize Jon hasn’t been too honest with him. We see Jon back at camp starting to worry about Jeremy figuring this all out. Yep. This could be fun.
The game is afoot this week. Actually, that’s the name of the challenge! The castaways will be playing this one using just their feet. They have to drop a bundle of blocks tethered above them then move the blocks over to make a three tiered cake of wood.
Keith, Jon, and Natalie have a very slight lead getting the wood blocks free. Now we’ve got Keith and Reed all the way up to the third row but a few other castaways start to catch up as others continue to drop and fall behind.
Tonight on Survivor 2014 we’ve got the “Biggest Blindside Yet” promises CBS as we continue through the backhalf of the Blood Vs Water season with just ten castaways left in the race.
Someone is about to get a serious blindside and Wes just hopes it won’t be him from what we’re seeing in this week’s Survivor 2014 clip below. I guess that rules him out of winning this week’s foot-fetish Immunity Challenge!
Last week Josh was eliminated and that didn’t really surprise anyone, so this should be fun to see what twists in Huyopa’s plans are heading our way. Can Jeremy regain control and keep pressing on to the end? Maybe Jon and Jaclyn’s power-couple status is put in to jeopardy? I can’t wait to find out!
Don’t miss our preview of one very messy looking Reward Challenge coming up where we’ve learned two of the winner’s will give up their spot at the prize to prove their loyalty. Hmm. So many mysterious ahead on Survivor this week.
Tonight on Survivor 2014 – Preview clip:
Immunity is back up for grabs in these Survivor spoilers featuring this week’s Individual Immunity Challenge, but no hands allowed to secure your safety this time.
I’m ready to watch the behind-the-scenes challenges clip from CBS on this Survivor competition because it sure seems like a weird one. (Update: Video added below.)
Every castaway has their own station, of course, and they’ll be using their feet to lower a bundle of blocks which appear to be transferred over to a basket in front of them. I don’t even know where to begin.
So are we starting to think of who might have the strongest toes or what here? Could be another up-in-the-air battle and with the promise of a huge blindside heading our way there may be an unlikely win.
Can’t wait to see this challenge play out on Survivor 2014 tonight. Check out the sneak peek pics below and see what you think of this weird looking comp.
Update: Jeff explains “The Game Is Afoot” is a brand new challenge for Survivor. Watch the video clip to see how it’s done. Yeah, this looks crazy hard. Good!
Things are about to get messy on Survivor 2014 this week when it comes time for the latest Reward luxury challenge. Very messy!
Ten castaways remain on Blood Vs Water which gives us a nice even split for reward this time around, but there won’t be anything nice about what happens next.
The teams will face off one at a time on Survivor 2014 over top a muddy pool that they’ll want to avoid in pursuit of this week’s prize. Looks like the castaways will each have a set position on a balance beam and have to knock the opposing player off their perch. None of this week’s sneak peek photos show any contact between the players so maybe it’ll be just a shake and rock mission to see who can hang on.
Here’s another surprise, according to a preview description from CBS, two of this week’s Reward winners will trade their win-spots to “prove their loyalty.” Interesting.
Castaways form teams consisting of Alec, Baylor, Jeremy, Natalie, and Reed on Red while Blue has Keith, Missy, Jaclyn, Jon, and Wes. Which group do you think has the best odds this week on Survivor?
