Another week down on Survivor 2015 and another elimination leaving us that much closer to the season finale, but before we get there it’s time for the Tribe Merge this week!
Joaquin was voted out last week when Escameca decided things could go smoother without the bromance of Rodney and Joaquin. The choice to keep a Blue Collar in Rodney could be a very smart move with the Merge arriving. They’ve still got the numbers over the former No Collars by one player, but can they hold it together and block vote?
Check out who is left as the pool narrows on which player will be the Sole Survivor and winner of Survivor Worlds Apart.
Escameca Tribe – Blue:
- Dan Foley
Joaquin Souberbielle– voted off last week
- Joe Anglim
- Mike Holloway
- Rodney Lavoie
- Sierra Thomas
- Tyler Fredrickson
Nagarote Tribe – Red:
We had only just met Nagarote and Escameca but they’re already coming to an end as we saw in the preview clip for next week’s Survivor 2015.
All the remaining castaways, twelve of them at this point, will settle in at one camp and battle it out with individual immunity challenges from now on.

The challenges might be individual, but let’s look at the old original tribes. White Collar will have just three of its members in the newly merged tribe. No Collar will have four of its original cast. Blue Collar comes out on top with five of its six when things come together. Blue has the most, but if White and No figure out they can bind together and overcome those numbers then we could have an interesting fight on our hands.
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.
