Last night’s Survivor gave us a lot to chew on with its double eliminations and surprise outcomes. Natalie’s plan looked solid, but that’s what’s great about Survivor in that almost anyone could pull out a win and secure their safety. Well, not Alec. He couldn’t win safety.
The first round of challenges and Tribal Council are featured in the pictures below from this week’s Survivor 2014 episode as Missy was handed the Reward Challenge and Keith locked down an Immunity win. Where did this challenge-killer in Keith come from? He nearly turned it in to a double feature for Immunity wins this week!
Check out photos from this week’s Survivor for new looks at what took place. Seems like Missy and her companions certainly enjoyed themselves on that little excursion to the resort there.
Reed Kelly was voted out of the tribe this week on Survivor after playing a strong and entertaining game, but what does he think about his time on the beach?
Reed says in his “Day After” interview that he’s actually very happy with the game he played. Yes, there are things he wishes he could go back and change (it’s so silly when eliminated players say they wouldn’t change anything), but Reed says he thoroughly enjoyed his experience.
He noted how complacent some of the other castaways became in their alliances and didn’t have to work as hard as Reed feels he did. Of course some of those players are probably still in the game, but I think his point is he didn’t coast and earned his place this far in to the season.
Watch Reed’s interview below and then get ready for his Ponderosa clip coming up soon.
Reed Kelly – Survivor ‘The Day After’ interview:
Last night on Survivor 2014 the Huyopa tribe faced two more Tribal Councils where a pair of castaways were eliminated from Blood Vs Water. Find out who won the challenges and who was voted off Survivor this week.
We live blogged the full episode recap here on the site too, but here are the highlights on who won challenges and who was eliminated on Survivor this week.
- Game ends early & Missy is given the win by other players
- Jon sent to Exile (volunteered)
- Baylor and Natalie selected to join Missy on overnight retreat
Hidden Immunity Idol:
- Jon receives a new clue & finds the Hidden Idol at Exile Island
- Baylor & Natalie reveal to Missy that they found an Idol
- Players must be the first to balance six balls on a paddle
- Keith wins Immunity by beating out Jon who was close behind
Tribal Council – Eliminated Castaway:
Get ready for double Survivor 2014 tonight with two episodes running back to back which is great timing for action-hungry fans like us after last week’s exciting turn of events. Let’s see what Survivor can offer up tonight.
Eight castaways remain and it’s only going to be more brutal as allies will be forced to turn on one another, but could that come as early as tonight? Preview clips have shown us tension between Jon and Jaclyn, but I think we all know she’ll have his back at vote-time. That might not be the case with everyone though.
With double episodes tonight I’ll be recapping both shows right here in one giant post. So with that let’s get ready as things start off with Huyopa’s return from Tribal Council where Wes was just eliminated and Reed and Alec should be in the hot seat for their failed coup attempt.
Arriving back at camp Jaclyn praises Natalie for convincing Jon to use the Idol as he would have otherwise been voted out. Jon tries to suggest he would have done it (yeah right), but no one there is buying his story either. This leads to an argument between the golden couple where Jon is upset that Jaclyn would give Natalie credit for smart game moves this close to Jury. She’s right that Natalie saved his butt, but he’s right that they should keep that to themselves. Could this disagreement cause them trouble? I doubt it.
This a big reward. Winners get to go on a horseback ride to a huge picnic and then stay the night at a resort before returning in the morning. Wow!
Players have to answer questions about the other players in the game to take a chop at other players’ ropes which are holding rocks over their “skulls.”
Reed is first to be eliminated, but there’s plenty of resentment to go around so this should be fun. Yep, there goes Alec, but Keith won’t be far behind. Sure enough, Keith is done.
Jeff doesn’t get too far with them when it’s just the five players who are all together. He sees this is going to be a friendly exchange so he ends things right there and it goes to Missy.
Missy then lets Jon volunteer to go to Exile Island and picks Baylor and Natalie to go with her. Jaclyn is left behind to be at camp with the three opposing guys.
We get a rough exchange between Baylor and Reed when Reed tells Baylor she’s being a brat. Missy gets pissed off and Reed stands by his statement and they continue to argue before the ladies quit and walk off to their reward.
Jeff is quick to note that Jaclyn has been left behind after Jon made the sacrifice for their alliance. Reed, Alec, and Keith reinforce Jaclyn’s resentment over this decision by saying how tight Missy, Baylor, and Natalie are in the game.
Jon gets a new clue at Exile for the next Hidden Immunity Idol that leads him out down the beach. Sure enough it doesn’t appear to take him long to get yet another Hidden Idol at Exile.
Missy, Baylor, and Natalie dig in to all the food at their reward. Baylor and Natalie tell Missy that they found a Hidden Idol.
Jaclyn is still upset about being left behind and the three guys look to capitalize on the opportunity Missy’s choice has created. They try to convince her that Missy, Baylor, and Natalie will turn on her and Jon to pave the way for their F3 deal. Hmm, will it work?
Today’s challenge is “Paddle Out” and requires castaways to balance six billiard balls on an oversized paddle. First to get them all in place will win Immunity. There’s not “out” in this comp, just one winner for the fastest to make it happen.
Not one, but two Immunity Challenges await us tonight on Survivor 2014 when back to back episodes take us down to just six castaways left on the San Juan Del Sur beach. Here’s what those remaining castaways will face in their fight for safety and the million dollars.
The first Immunity challenge will be “Paddle Out” and features six billiard balls that must be balanced, one at a time, on an oversized paddle which is itself balanced on a ball as well. In the video clip below it’s mentioned that this is a repeat challenge but with the added twist of a little bump on the paddle’s handle forcing the players to move around a bit more.
‘Paddle Out’ Immunity Challenge Preview:
But wait, there’s more! The remaining seven castaways after the first Tribal Council will have another challenge and this one looks way worse to me (not that the first looked good either).
