We’ve got chickens on the menu tonight with separate Reward and Immunity challenges and from the preview clip below I’m guessing Blue Collar comes up empty on the egg-laying prizes. But as a consolation prize Kelly Remington does take a hard hit to the head that leaves her bloodied. Yeah, I’d rather have chickens too.
Then there’s just one more Tribal Council with the three original tribes in tact before we head to a Tribe shuffle tonight on Survivor 2015. Could that mean No Collars lose again and their numbers are half that of Blue Collar which forces the remix of castaways?
We don’t have as much details on the second episode as CBS is working to hide who is missing from those challenges. Good idea. We’ll find out soon enough though who goes home and who gets themselves a nice chicken dinner. See you back here at 8PM for our live coverage of tonight’s back to back episodes.
This week on Survivor 2015 we’ve got not only a double dose of episodes but we also get a doubling up of Challenges with both Reward and Immunity this time around.
First up on Survivor Worlds Apart will be the Reward Challenge and I’m thinking there’s some chickens involved with the title “Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner” and an image of Jeff holding out a plate of eggs to the castaways. We’ll have to wait and see for sure what reward items are under that sheet.
This Survivor challenge puts four players in the field for each tribe. One player is up on the stand while three more move around the course and bring back items. Those three down below are all in the dark with a blindfold while the tower player shouts commands and directions. Castaways will have to bring back a collection of items and then lift it up the player above. First to finish wins reward.
As for who wins, I’m thinking it isn’t the Blue Collar tribe. In this preview video Mike Holloway is discussing their lack of food and says “we’re not getting chickens, obviously.” So they’re probably out of the running. Which tribe do you think will pull off the win?

Hyped during last week’s “Next Time on Survivor” promo we saw Jeff call for the challenge to halt but we hadn’t seen much more. Now we know it’s Kelly who takes the hit and just how it happens.
Sierra Thomas is working on the raised level and pulling up the lift platform when one side drops and it all crashes down on Lindsey and Kelly beneath it. Wait, did Dan Foley let go of his side of the rope? The heavy wood platform knocks in to Kelly’s head hard enough to leave blood running down her Buff and hand. Despite all that Kelly doesn’t fall to the ground or even stop to pull off her blindfold. Dedication!
Jeff calls a stop to the challenge and the preview stops there but it’s safe to say the medical team would have jumped to her assistance. I’m guessing one of the two guys would have stepped in to help her as Mike Hollyway and Rodney Lavoie were the sit-outs for Blue Collar in this week’s challenge.
No word if Kelly has to leave Survivor, but I’m guessing she pulls through and sticks it out. We’ll see more on Wednesday’s double episode night of Survivor 2015.
So let’s take a look back at last week with the third Survivor Worlds Apart Power Rankings.
Blue Collar Tribe
The Blue Collars continue to show just how strong their work ethic is. Even if there are internal personality struggles, they still get the job done when they have to.
1. Kelly Remington. This Blue Tribe is a tough one to rank because they’re all so stubborn and feel that they don’t necessarily need each other to survive. So I think Kelly just sitting back and taking it all in and not stirring up trouble puts her in the best spot.
2. Rodney Lavoie Jr. I think the fact that Rodney is taking on Mike is doing wonders for his game. The others are seeing that they might need Rodney around to take out the big threat.
3. Sierra Thomas. Luckily for everyone hating on Mike Sierra and Lindsey get to move up on the list.
4. Lindsey Cascaddan. See above.
5. Dan Foley. Dan is a tricky one. Everyone seems to hate him, but he had a good showing in the past couple of challenges, so his worth has improved. But he does keep running his mouth and making everyone mad, so he’s going to stay close to the bottom here this week.
6. Mike Holloway. I thought Mike was on top of this tribe, but things changed a lot this week. His my way or the highway thinking has really alienated himself from the tribe. And since they all think they’re their own boss and can handle everything on their own, Mike’s strengths mean little to them.
White Collar Tribe
Who knew this group could overcome that week one loss and actually work together to keep themselves away from Tribal Council.
1. Tyler Fredrickson. I think Tyler’s wits and people skills coupled with his physical attributes are keeping him at the top of his tribe.
2. Carolyn Rivera. She’s got the idol and she has so little to worry about, she’s not making herself a threat at all. She’s sitting pretty right now.
Fifteen of the Survivor Worlds Apart castaways are still in the game, but two more will be eliminated this week during the double episode night on Wednesday. Then by this time next week we’ll be looking at two new tribes following the pending tribe shuffle.
