While we’re used to seeing the advantage item at the Survivor auction that gives a castaway a leg up at the upcoming Immunity Challenge, this season there will be something new. Host Jeff Probst revealed to EW details on the adventure ahead.
This new mystery item will secretly give its holder the one time chance to vote twice at a Survivor Tribal Council of his or her choosing. As for the “secret” part, the power will not be announced and it will be up to the holder to decide when and how to make it known.
With Joe Anglim out of the race we’ll have to find a new “most likely to win” castaway on Survivor 2015. Who has a big shot at this one? They’ll need speed and agility. So we’re all thinking Will Sims and Dan Foley, right? Right??
Check out the pics below plus the video and then join us back here Wednesday night for Survivor 2015 as we live blog the new episode.
We finally said goodbye to Joe last week on Survivor 2015 after a very strong showing, leaving what many are calling some pretty weak players. Will any of the remaining nine really step up their game to game enough to earn respect of sole survivor?
Last week I decided to start doing the Power Rankings more on how the players played the previous week instead of who is safe and who is at risk of going. I think it’s more interesting that way. So let’s get to this week’s refreshed Power Rankings list.
1. Mike. I’m leaving Mike at the top, only because he has the hidden immunity idol and he’s been pretty much getting what he wants in the game. I think he will be targeted soon, but also won’t be going anywhere soon.
2. Tyler. He moves up a few spots this week after winning individual immunity and because he’s managed to work his way into the Blue Collar group as often a swing vote, which has managed to keep him safe. Unless something happens soon, though, he will be at the top of the pecking order when the Blue Collars are down to just them, Tyler and Carolyn.
3. Sierra. I think Sierra is staying in this position only because she’s been imprint in so many votes and preventing so many power shifts. What she might be helping make into boring TV has actually helped her game greatly.
Joe put up a great fight, but it wasn’t enough as he finally lost an individual Immunity challenge and saw his game slip away. Despite his best efforts with a fake Idol the controlling Blue Collars rallied and drew enough support to send him off to Ponderosa.
One of these remaining players will walk away with a million dollars and that’s kinda crazy since most of these are not players I would have expected to control the game as well as they’re doing. Check out who is left and guess who could pull off the big win.
Merged Tribe – Merica:
- Carolyn Rivera
- Dan Foley
- Jenn Brown
Joe Anglim– voted off last week
- Mike Holloway
- Rodney Lavoie
- Shirin Oskooi
- Sierra Thomas
- Tyler Fredrickson
- Will Sims
Who do you hope is the next to go on this week’s Tribal vote?
Despite his best efforts, including a Fake Idol, Joe Anglim was voted off Survivor 2015 this week. Next stop for the former No Collar player was Ponderosa where he’d settle in with Hali Ford as the first two Jury members.
Heading off in to the jungle Joe was feeling down as he repeated that he wasn’t ready to leave yet and had really hoped to see his father there. Arriving at the medical station Joe finds out he’s lost just over 17lbs during his time on Survivor. Not too bad.
The relief for Joe comes at Ponderosa when he’s greeted by Hali and a big hug. Joe says it felt like he could finally breath as he shed his Survivor skin and was able to relax, but he does admit to sadness and a feeling of defeat in the process.
As Joe settles in Hali makes him a crown so they could be the prince and princess of Ponderosa. She realizes Shirin was a potential ally and not their enemy. Joe explains that Hali was targeted because the power players were nervous about a girls alliance.
The next day Joe says he woke up crying after having a dream that he had made it to the family reunion where he had a chance to see his dad and hoped he was proud of him.
In his final thoughts Joe admits his strategy was terrible and he wishes he had laid low following the merge. Yeah, maybe winning week after week put a spotlight on his threat level. Well, maybe there’s another Survivor season out there for Joe Anglim.
