I am so glad it is Thursday! We have a lot to look forward to tonight on Survivor Samoa. The castaways race off in search of the idol and the Galu’s make it no secret that they are not going to let Russell out of their sights. He doesn’t seem all that worried about finding it and looks pretty relaxed in the hammock so what does he have up his sleeve?
Hopefully the spoilers are true and one of the former members of Foa will win the immunity challenge. It has been a while since they have won anything and are definitely due. I’m wondering if they will have a reward challenge this episode. I’m pretty much pulling for the four Foa’s to win everything from here on out. I like them all and would be pleased with any of them winning the million.
Hopefully this episode will live up to the hype and it will be a GREAT show. Looking forward to tribal council. Who do you think breaks from their alliance and joins the other side? My bet is on John. Be sure to watch it all tonight and join us here after the show to talk it out.
Update: I just found this post by missyae on blows: “Let’s make this as generic as possible so nobody gets mad and thinks it is slanted to someone other than who they like. Immunity challenge is won by a Foa other than Russell Hantz. There is a tie vote at Tribal Council 5-5. There is another vote which does not result in a tie.Bye bye Laura!”
Hey guys! So I searched and searched for Survivor Samoa spoilers and came up with absolutely nothing! Things are being kept way on the down low for Thursday’s Survivor show so let’s see if we can break it down from the previews and title.
The day of reckoning means Retribution for one’s actions, so this brings to mind revenge and payback. The only question is who’s payback? Will Foa Foa get their time to shine in challenges this week? Will Galu get to vote off Russ? I’m going to speculate and please remember this is just my thoughts and not what is going to happen. I believe that Russell will indeed make it to the final 3 so he will be safe this week. I don’t think he finds the immunity idol but either wins the individual immunity challenge or manages to bring over another member of Galu to his side. We have seen the previews of him lying in the hammock saying “I don’t need it.” Is he talking about the idol? I don’t know. Let’s say he does not win the challenge and does not find the idol. Who would come over to his side? It definitely won’t be Laura since they clearly dislike each other. With Laura sticking with Galu, we can assume that Monica will stay with her. Dave is so pro Galu that he won’t switch which leaves us with Brett and John. John already had a deal with Russ and then turned on him last week and I know absolutely nothing about Brett so can’t even imagine what he will do. He and Kelly were close so maybe he thinks he is the next target of the Foa’s so he makes a secret deal.
I’m going to go way out on a limb and give you this scenario. CBS has said this will be the most dramatic tribal council ever and that one person switches alliances in order to save themself. Here is a possibility: Russell is going to vote with Galu and evict Jaison. That way he is safe another week and give himself time to find the idol.
Whatever happens, it is going to be such a great show! What do yall think? What’s going to happen on Thursday?
CBS Press Release: “Tempers flare and an alliance threatens to splinter apart at the most dramatic Tribal Council yet.” The Day of Reckoning: A clever castaway jeopardizes the success of a scheme to ensure their own safety in the game. So in episode 9 of Survivor Samoa we had the most memorable tribal council and this week we have the most dramatic. It just keeps getting better and better…
We know for a fact from Jeff Probst in the last tribal council that there is now a third hidden immunity idol in play. We all saw everyone scrounging around looking for it and following Russell’s every move. Can he beat the odds and find it again?? That is the big question on the minds of all Survivor fans! I would be surprised if he manages to uncover it with Galu on his heels but with Russ you never can tell. We know from past spoilers that he is probably going to be in the final 3 so he has to keep saving himself somehow.
The immunity challenge this week shows all ten contestants lined up and throwing something to try and break what looks like ceramic tiles and whomever breaks 3 moves on to the next round. They do have to break their own tiles and not that of their competitors so they need good aim. The second round entails shooting a crossbow at an archery board. From the pictures we know Brett advances to this round but it is not clear who joins him. I’m not even going to speculate right now on who wins the challenge.
Tribal council is going to be real interesting this week. First we have a possible tie with the 4 Foas and Shambo, making it 5-5. Russell will need to bring over 1 more member of the Galu tribe in order to save himself if he doesn’t have the idol or win the IC. In the promos, he is shown laying in the hammock smiling and saying he doesn’t need the idol this week so you have to assume he either wins immunity and makes another alliance. We are looking for the showdown between him and Laura so perhaps this is the week she goes. I would think in order to keep Shambo on their side the Foa’s will have to vote out Laura, that is unless she wins the IC yet again! Surely not 3 in a row. If she does then we have to face the possibility that either Monica or John will be leaving this episode.

Do yall think Russ finds the third idol and what do you think happens to make TC so dramatic?
Natalie kills the rat and purple wins the reward!Way to go girl! You were starving and you found yourself some meat and shared with three other tribe mates. She is such a likable person, I hope the rumors are true and she does win the game! She did not choose well for the reward challenge. She had to sit out and Jeff told her that if she chose the right team then she could partake and of course she chooses the team with all the Foa Foa members and they lose! Does she not remember their track record? While eating fried chicken and brownies the purple team read a note stating the immunity idol is in play and decide not to tell anyone from the Foa tribe. They also decide to take down Russell but Shambo is not ok with this plan.
Meanwhile back at camp…Russell strikes out on his own and finds the idol without any clues AGAIN!! Even if you don’t like the guy you have to admit when he wants something, he doesn’t stop until he gets it. I didn’t see anyone else looking for the idol. He says he is not going to tell anyone but of course what does he do?? He tells Shambo and Jaison! At least shambo is on his side and tells him what the others are planning which works out well for him. Jaison tells Mick and Natalie and the plan emerges for Russell to use the idol and to vote out Kelly.
Immunity ChallengeThe grappling hooks were used to snag two bags and the first three people to get both bags move on to the second part of the challenge. Mick gets both bags easily and Shambo follows. Laura and Russell both snag their second bag at the same time and Russ loses his right before the line and Laura moves on and finishes her puzzle well before Mick and Shambo and wins immunity for the second time. Gag! Really wanted Laura gone this week!
Tribal CouncilWhat an awesome TB and it was memorable! First Erik comes in staring down his former Galu tribe mates and totally redeemed himself to me when he showed actual happiness and in your face when Russell played his idol. When Russell stood up and said “I ain’t finished playing just yet” and the look on Galu’s faces was absolutely priceless! I about fell out of my chair. So no one predicted Kelly to be voted out tonight and I was shocked at the choice. Why not get rid of Dave or John who are much stronger competitors? Also, Shambo voted to evict Russ, what is up with that? Maybe just to save face with her former tribe? Looking forward to next week in the Russell vs. Laura showdown! It is going to be real interesting! They say tribal goes to tie 5-5! What did everyone think of the show tonight? Were you surprised at the decision to vote out Kelly and was it a smart move?
We have a lot to look forward to on Survivor tonight. Russell is the target and has to fight to stay in the game. If he doesn’t win the immunity challenge then he will have to pull some powerful strategic moves in order to continue on.
One of the ladies kills a rat to help out her tribemates so we will get to see who coined the title of tonight’s episode, “Tastes Like Chicken”. There is speculation on the web that they will not be allowed to eat it for health reasons but I believe this has happened before on the show. Does anyone remember contestants in the past eating a rat?
TV guide says that this tribal council will be one of the most memorable so I don’t have a clue what is in store for us in that regard but it will be interesting to find out. There are not many spoilers for this episode but we do know that there is a great possibility that either John of Laura will be gone to the jury.
What do you guys think? Can Russell save himself? What will go down at Tribal and who do you think eats a rat?
