We’ve grown accustomed to Survivor having a final three, but this season it seems we may be going one step further before the final Cagayan Jury vote.
In an interview with Jeff Probst at EW.com, Jeff reveals there are still two more challenges ahead in the final episode:
As for the finale itself, still more surprises to come regarding how it finishes and two of the most exciting challenges of any finale.
With just four castaways left and two more challenges ahead, if they are both Immunity competitions then we’re looking at two more eliminations. That would send only two players to the Jury for their big decision.
We’ve heard rumors for awhile now that there’d be a F2 this season instead of a F3, but a lot of Survivor spoilers for Cagayan turned out to be wrong. Looks like this one could be true. What do you think?
Don’t forget, the Survivor 2014 finale is next Wednesday and not this Sunday night.
Update: In the latest Survivor promo from CBS it’s confirmed. Jeff announces “Four Castaways. Three Tribal Councils. Two Hours…” So yes, It’ll be a Final Two this season.
Thanks to reader JacinJax for the tip.
As soon as Trish left Tribal Council you could tell she was feeling better and ready to be out of the game. Meeting with the Survivor medical team we find out she’s lost just 10 pounds though she looks emaciated. She’s ready to be at Ponderosa and chowing down on some good food.
When Trish arrives at Ponderosa the rest of the Jury is less than thrilled to say hello. Then they hit her with a bombshell: Tony flipped. How did they figure that out?!
I couldn’t believe Tony flipped since he didn’t need to (Woo was the deciding vote), but I thought as long as Trish doesn’t realize because she didn’t see that last vote then Tony will keep her in his Survivor finale pocket. Maybe not.
Sarah says she could tell because he kept his eyes down after voting and they could hear him say his vote was strategic, not personal. Can the Jury always hear what the voters are saying? Yikes. Everyone agrees that Tony voted her out.
Once Trish realizes Tony voted her out she’s upset, but not terribly so. She’s more excited to have clean clothes, food, and a shower. Of course that just upsets LJ and Jeremiah who desperately wish they had a shot to get back in the game.
Watch Trish’s full Ponderosa video below and see what you think.
Last night on Survivor 2014 we found out the results of which four would make it through this week’s final five challenges ahead of next week’s finale. Find out who won the challenge and who was voted off Survivor this week.
We’re live blogging the full episode 12 recap here on the site tonight too, but these are just the highlights on who won challenges and who was voted off Survivor tonight.
- Players must fill their buckets with mud off their bodies
- Reward is a pizza lunch
- Tony wins by a landslide
- Tony selects Trish to join him
Hidden Immunity Idol:
- Tony reveals to Trish that he has both Idols
This is the second to last episode of Survivor Cagayan with just five players left and Tony holding two Hidden Idols. The game seems his to lose, but the other castaways might not let that happen so easily.
Picking up where we left off last week Tasha was eliminated from the tribe after a flop attempt by Kass and Woo to turn on Tony. Now Kass is in the hot seat with Tony for threatening to come after him and Trish is ready to come after Kass as well. This should be a fun night!
Back at camp Spencer is confused why Woo didn’t stick to the deal, but Woo explains he already has a final three deal. Turns out that might not be such a good deal. Tony tells us he isn’t going to keep Woo because it’d be too risky to take such a well-liked and strong player to the end.
Players must cover themselves in mud and load it all over themselves to fill a bucket. First to fill their bucket wins pizza. Yep.
It’s a timed event and they can not directly carry it. Ugh. This is nasty but funny. Time is up!
Jeff announces it’s not even close. Tony wins with an overflowing bucket and they don’t even bother weighing them it’s so far ahead.
Tony gets to pick one other person to join him for pizza and he goes with Trish. That can’t make Woo feel too good.
Back at camp while Trish and Tony are enjoying their pizze prize Tony reveals to her he has the Special Idol and the regular Hidden Idol. They both agree they need to get rid of Woo and will need Kass to make that happen. Ahh, I see where this is going. Kass is going to take that back to Woo, isn’t she?
Kass immediately goes back and tells Woo before she turns to Tony and asks what’s going on. Kass, Kass, Kass. I don’t know if this is such a great plan, but that’s okay.
While Tony and Trish head off to get water Kass and Spencer work on Woo. Seems like Woo is realizing that he’s being betrayed by Tony and is going to make a move. Kass is suggesting Trish might be a smart target for them, but Trish overhears Kass’s comment. This could be that issue we saw in the preview.
Immunity is up for grabs! Players must work through a rope puzzle, build a ladder and a staircase, then complete a shuffle puzzle.
Tony undoes the ropes first. Kass is just behind him and Trish. Now Spencer has his. Woo is in last place.
Tony is still leading and finishes his ladder first. He’s on to the stair steps. Spencer is now down with his ladder but way behind Tony. This is Tony’s to lose.
In the latest Survivor 2014 Cagayan preview from CBS it looks like Woo is ready to flip on Tony. Wait. This again?
There are just five players left on Survivor this season and that puts one of them in the pivot position with the choice of which way to turn. Seems like Woo might be that player.
Last week Woo decided to go with Kass and Spencer’s plan to turn on Tony and vote him out even though they didn’t know about his stockpile of Idols. At the last minute that plan was abandoned and Tony didn’t have to spend a dime on his safety.
Now we’re seeing what looks like Woo deciding again to go with Kass and Spencer’s side and vote against Tony or Trish with a 3-2 control. Considering they must know about Tony’s Idol I’m not sure how they’ll plan to go after him instead of Trish, but hopefully we’ll see this stupid Special Idol get used after all its fanfare so far.
What do you think of the possibility of Woo turning on Tony this far in to the game? Smart move or too little too late?
