It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Wentworth family on Survivor 2014, but now they can settle in and watch the season play out like the rest of us.
Last night on Survivor we saw some pretty good action with what was definitely a tough mental challenge in the Exile Island arena and a surprisingly unsurprising result at the Immunity Challenge. Does Coyopa translate to incompetent? I just don’t get it. Even after the Shuffle it’s still going on, but at least that ends next week with the Merge!
Gotta love how Jeremy resisted the rice trade at the Hunahpu camp. I don’t blame him for wanting to tough it out, but then again I’m not sure if I’d rather be starving or drenched from the rain. Not fun either way, right?

The latest castaway to be voted off Survivor sat down on the beach for his “Day After” interview and shares reflections on the season and accomplishments that kept him moving in the game.
Dale Wentworth came out on the losing side of a 3-2 vote in this week’s Tribal Council after Coyopa failed once again to secure their safety (good grief), but he took the loss in stride and had a very positive attitude about his experience.
Ranking himself on a 1-10 scale Dale says he’d give himself a 7 for his performance on the tribe by proving his worth with shelter and especially making fire. Dale says he knew “there’s no way” he could have secured enough votes to stay, but he’s proud with how hard he worked to save his butt. His last day and a half were his hardest working days and from what we saw with his fake Idol moves I’m not surprised.
The experience was especially exciting for Dale because of how he got to spend the time with his daughter Kelley, who was voted out last week. He says this gave him a chance to see what a strong and capable person she has become in a way that you’d never get to witness elsewhere.
Watch Dale’s full interview in the video below for lots of interesting details from his time on Survivor 2014.
Last night on Survivor 2014 the tribes continued to adapt to their new members while one tribe was forced to sacrifice for food and another faced confronted with a fake Idol. Find out who won the comps and who was voted off Survivor this week.
We live blogged the full episode recap here on the site too, but these are just the highlights on who won challenges and who was eliminated on Survivor this round.
Exile Island Challenge:
- Reed and Baylor face off in the arena
- Reed wins luxury of food for Hunahpu
- Baylor sent to Exile & Natalie volunteers to go with her
- Julie sits out for Hunahpu
- Hunahpu wins after Coyopa throws away a huge lead
Tribal Council – Eliminated Castaway:
Tonight on Survivor the Hunahpu tribe is looking pretty hungry, but are they willing to make a significant trade to Jeff in exchange for some food?
We’re kicking tonight off with Coyopa returning from Tribal Council where Dale watched his daughter Kelley head off in to the jungle with her snuffed torch. Time for him to make some bold moves, but we’ll have to wait and see if they’re smart moves or stupid ones.
Dale flashes the token he took off the well and tells Jon he’s got a real deal elimination protection right there. Seems like Jon believes him, but the rest of the tribe hasn’t heard his story yet and they may not believe.
Hunahpu has its own issues as I mentioned above and Jeff is heading their way with a bag of rice but he won’t be giving it to them free of charge. It’s time for a “stiff penalty,” explains Jeff. Yikes. Jeff says this is only the second time he can recall that a tribe has needed to have their food replenished. Jeff points out it’s only Day 14!
Jeff says the penalty must be “just” since Coyopa has been playing smart and likely losing for it. He demands everything but the machete, one pot, and one flint. They’re starting over and it’s making Jeremy very unhappy.
Exile Island Challenge:
Jeff reveals the luxury prize this week is a bbq afternoon of food. Yum. Also since pairs are shuffled around each tribe gets to simply nominate a player. Hunahpu puts in Reed while Coyopa goes with Baylor. Players must assemble a puzzle blindfolded.
Baylor and Reed keep hitting in to the obstacles around them and that can’t be fun. Baylor is collecting all the bags first before she goes to study but Reed is taking him time to study between each round of collecting puzzle pieces. They’re pretty even as both start assembling the mystery before them.
Reed is making great progress while Baylor struggles. Yep, he’s got it and the luxury for his tribe. Baylor got whooped and she’s off to Exile. Now Reed has to pick someone from Hunahpu to go with Baylor. Reed moves to pick Julie, but Natalie volunteers and off she goes.
Back at camp Jon tells Missy and Jaclyn that Dale has an Idol and they all seem to believe it. They consider a new plan to target Keith and use Dale to make that happen.
Life isn’t good at Hunahpu as they’ve given up their tarp and the rain is setting in heavy. It’s a long night of raining and that has Julie very worked up that she’s not sure she can keep doing it. Jeremy wonders if he can push her out of the tribe before he becomes a target if she’s considering leaving any way.
Julie sits out for Hunahpu to even out the tribes. Remaining castaways must move as a group as they scale a wall, roll a giant wood frame, and collecting bags of puzzle pieces. Once they get all the bags two players must assemble a flag with the pieces.
Immunity is back up for grabs on Survivor tonight when the remaining castaways face off in “Flip, Flops, & Flags” that’ll leave the players race to be the first to complete a puzzle and secure their safety for the week.
Both tribes will gather at a starting point before racing to the first obstacle in a giant wall. Once everyone is over the wall they’ll heave an eight foot cube down the beach to a series of stations where they’ll collect bags of flag pieces. Once all pieces have been gathered two players will identify the correct order of their flag and assemble it on the frame. First tribe to finish wins a stinky fish. Just checking if you’re still reading.
Since Hunahpu has one more player they’ll have to sit someone out and that looks to be Julie McGee this week. She’ll be on the sidelines as the other six fight for safety.
I can’t help but think Hunahpu will pull this off just because of Coyopa’s seemingly cursed streak of comps despite the tribe changes last week. Check out the pics and video below to see what you think.
