This week on Survivor Philippines, R.C. became the first person voted off the island following the merge that formed the Dangrayne Tribe.
So, like every week, the eliminated player paused for the exit interview. So RC, all cleaned up, sat down to talk about her Survivor experience and what she learned about herself while playing the game.
“It was such an amazing experience to be able to learn about yourself and how far you really can push yourself,” RC said. “I’m really proud of myself because this experience really breaks you down and shows your true colors I can be proud walking away from this game knowing I played with integrity.
And while it’s a complete bummer to be out of the game that she loves so much, she’s not being too hard on herself.
“You win some, you lose some,” RC said. “It’s just the way the cookie crumbled.”
Find out what else RC had to say in the post-elimination video below. Survivor Philippines airs again on Wednesday night. See you there!
It was merge night on Survivor Philippines, which means that the original Tandang Tribe finally had to go to Tribal Council and Denise had to go to the seventh one in a row.
At the start of the episode, the Tandang Tribe spies a boat and once it approaches shore, they’re given the message that the tribes are merging and they have 10 minutes to get their stuff, board the boat and head to their new home. Kalabaw gets the same deal and everyone is on their way to their new home as the Dangrayne Tribe.
Some of the players are just meeting each other for the first time, which always seems odd. I mean they’ve played challenges together but never really talked, so it’s so strange. So everyone is getting acquainted and sizing one another up and Lisa is playing mom and decides to do hang up everyone’s clothing to dry out and she finds Malcom’s hidden immunity idol.
Malcom quickly realizes that she may be onto him, so he pulls her aside to discuss it. Lisa promises she was not looking for anything, but was just trying to be helpful. He believes her and lets her know that only the two of them and Denise know about the idol. They strike up a little deal and Lisa agrees to keep his secret.
Tonight on Survivor 2012 Philippines we’re about to see what everyone is expecting but may end up a surprise for anyone who didn’t read our Survivor spoilers from the other day. A boat heads in to Tandang’s cove and delivers a letter revealing the tribes are merging. The castaways scramble to grab their gear and head aboard to find their new camp location and meet their new tribe members.
The castaways, now as the new tribe Dangrayne, head in to the first challenge of the night with a chance of individual immunity for a woman and a man. The players have to hold a reel hooked to a rope to a bucket holding 25% of their body weight. Mike is out first with Pete shortly behind. Penner drops next and Jeff points out he’s in trouble at tonight’s tribal council. Lisa is the first lady to drop her bucket just before Malcolm lets his slip away. RC is voted out of Survivor Philippines.
Denise wins immunity for the women when RC and Abi drop out. It comes down to Carter and Jeff after Artis falls out. Jeff offers a deal to Carter and then drops leaving the immunity for Carter. Everyone but Denise and Carter has something to fear at tonight’s council.
The players gather at tribal council and discussion is heated, big surprise, but the fun starts when Penner decides to play his immunity idol. Looks like Penner made a good choice when a lot of votes stack up against him. RC hits four votes against Pete’s two and she’s gone.
The Survivor Philippines castaways are in for a game-changing twist tonight, according to this week’s preview. And unless you’ve been living on an island yourself for the past 20 years, then you know that can pretty much mean one thing. So there are no more spoiler alerts. I’m just going to say it.
It’s time for the merge. TV Guide spilled the beans in it’s weekly show description, so it’s not much of a secret. Plus, the photo above is pretty telling itself.

Last week on Survivor Philippines, Artis made it no secret that he was unhappy with Skupin cutting a deal with Penner, which resulted in the Kalabaw Tribe getting the reward and the Tandang Tribe ending up with a little bit of extra rice.
“Well-played Penner,” Artis says in the secret scene posted below. “He played us like a freaking fiddle. It was just brutal.”
Artis was very upset that his team didn’t play out the endurance a bit longer. He sounds a lot like he wish he wouldn’t have had to sit out the game and that the outcome would have been different. He’s also happy he kept his cool even if he did want to stomp Skupin into the ground.
“It’s a hard pill to swallow and I’m glad I didn’t explode,” he said. “It might have been my demise had I blow up like that. I will say Mike needs to stay far, far, far away from me. He shouldn’t even speak to me.”
Survivor Philippines airs again Wednesday night and this week there’s a twist!
