Drop your buffs! It’s time for the Tribe Merge.
At the conclusion of this week’s Survivor 2013 episode we got a glimpse of what was coming up next and we now know it’s time for the end of Galang and Tadhana. Starting next week the two tribes will come together and form one tribe. Read on for spoilers and more details on what happens.
The Survivor 2013 castaways might still be playing the game on TV, but in real life they’re back home enjoying things like getting out their Halloween costumes. Check out some of the Blood Vs Water cast’s costumes they shared last night online.
Hayden and Kat went as bumblebees, plus the bonus shots of her in a cat suit for this week’s After Show with Pavarti Shallow. Brad was dressed as some sort of Freddy-ish Tadhana player. Colton and Caleb were the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin. Gervase went as “Bruce LeeRoy.” Then you’ve got Ciera as a flapper.
Which Survivor castaway do you think pulled off the best costume for Halloween this year?
Pavarti Shallow is back with this week’s Halloween-themed Survivor After Show featuring the latest Blood Vs Water eliminated castaway, Kat Edorsson.
Kat sits down with Pavarti to run through her experience returning to the Survivor battlefield and the challenges faced playing it with a loved one this time around. There’s a lot of discussion like we heard from Brad on how it’s that much harder playing with a loved one over a relative plus a big focus on Hayden and Kat’s long term plans. Kat still insists that Hayden would have swapped spots with her even though he was the one convincing her it was a bad idea.
There’s also an interesting discussion on how well off the Survivors were this season compared to past years. Pavarti is shocked at all the luxurious food options these castaways had at hand and thinks they had it way to easy. Kat says Hayden lost 20 pounds during his stay!
Watch the interview video below of Kat and Pavarti with the “After Show”:
Survivor After Show: Blood Vs Water – Episode 6
Kat Edorsson was eliminated this week on Survivor 2013 Blood Vs Water when she lost out at Redemption Island after a choked up plea to be saved by Hayden that went unanswered. Now that she’s out of the game Kat is back with her “The Day After” interview.
You’ll hear a lot of the same things we got from Brad on the impact of playing with a loved one instead of a relative. Kat says her game rotated around making decisions with Hayden in mind and that it held her back in what she could have done.
As for her hopes of trading with Hayden at Redemption Island, Kat thinks she grew bigger as a person for not making Hayden swap with her. I think that perspective sums up my thoughts on Kat. She thinks she did the biggest thing in her life by not making him give up his chance at the game so she could have a third shot at screwing up hers. Hayden was never going to swap with her, right? How does she not see that?
Anyway, if you have some sort of desire to hear Kat rambling on for five minutes then here’s her Survivor exit interview. “Cool beans.”
We’ve got your quick run down of Survivor results so you can find out who got voted off last night in case you missed the episode. There were lots of fun twists and turns along the way so this one is worth going back and watching at least the big segments.
Survivor 2013 – Episode 7 – Redemption Island:
Kat crumbles when she sees Hayden and Jeff puts him on the spot to swap places with her. Hayden definitely doesn’t want to but Kat keeps pleading that she’d switch. Finally Hayden convinces her that’s a terrible idea (it is) and the competition moves on.
John dominates that challenge where they have to untie a machete, hack a rope, and then build a puzzle. Kat flails around after squandering a solid second place and is knocked out when Laura M completes her puzzle. Kat is eliminated from Survivor.
Survivor 2013 – Episode 7 – Immunity Challenge:
Tadhana was riding their high of back to back wins so the pressure was on in this challenge. Both tribes played five castaways so Tadhana had Ciera sit out. The race was fairly even throughout as both teams had to escape an initial wire trap, navigate an obstacle course, and then build bolos to toss as a wooden rack.
There were many reductions from the original challenge that also had the players chained at the arms and then throwing six, not three, bolos to secure a win. I guess the Survivor challenge team decided it was just too much for this crew.
