On tonight’s Survivor Philippines, the tribes get down and dirty. OK, they get down and muddy.
In the weekly preview, we’re teased with a very messy challenge and the following announcement: “A dirty deal between returning players makes the castaways ready to clean house.”
It looks like Penner and Skupin might be making some sort of pre-merge alliance that doesn’t sit well with their fellow tribe mates. And it sounds like they could both be putting their heads on the chopping block (depending on who loses the challenge). We’ll have to tune in tonight to find out.

Last week on Survivor 2012, the Matsing Tribe fell apart so Malcom and Denise were separated and tossed into the other two tribes.
Denise ended up with the Kalabaw Tribe and Malcome with the Tandang. And Malcom’s addition has made that tribe happy. Especially Pete. He isn’t looking at him as a threat but as a strong ally.
“We’re like a team on steroids,” Pete says in the Secret Scene posted below. “No one can beat us.”
So it sounds like as long as Pete and Malcom team up, they could go far in the game. At least cording to Pete’s thoughts.
“Having Malcom here long term is beneficial,” Pete said. “We could work together. I’ll bring him to the top.”
Survivor Philippines is back Wednesday night at 8 PM ET on CBS. Be sure to check back later for the episode results and a full recap the following morning.

Last week we watched as three tribes became two on Survivor Philippines as the Matsing Tribe was disbanded. This week the Tandang and Kalabaw tribes are in an all-out war, according to the preview for this week’s episode.
“Everyone plays dirty,” show host Jeff Pobsts says in the preview. “The game gets personal.”
Jeff also calls something that comes up “unprecedented.” Of course that’s all we know as this week’s preview is quite the empty teaser. Maybe the dirty part Jeff is talking about is just referring to the fact that there’s clearly some mud wrestling going on. Ha.
Be sure to tune in Wednesday night to find out what goes down on Survivor Philippines and then check back here after for the full recap of this week’s episode.

Dawson became the latest person voted out of Survivor Philippines and the first voted out of the Kalabaw Tribe.
The day after her elimination, Dawson got herself cleaned up and stopped for her exit interview. So what did she think of her Survivor experience?
“It was such an authentic experience …” Dawson said. “It was surreal and vivid and passionate.”
What did she find the hardest part of playing the game?
“I can survivor anywhere,” she said. “I can eat anything. The harder thing is the social game. My social game was on pointe.”
Dawson says she is very proud of her game and that Survivor is a game she loves.
I’m not sure about the other things she said because it’s kind of a loopy interview and I was left scratching my head during most of it. You can watch the video below and if you can translate any of what she’s saying, please do so in our comments section.
This week’s Survivor Philippines was not without the drama. We got to see a tribe disbanded, a medical emergency and a blindside.
At the start of the episode, Denise and Malcom are left wondering what’s going to happen to them since Russell’s exit last week means that Matsing is down to only two members. They’re pretty sure they’re going to get tossed into the other tribes, so they do everything they can to find the immunity idol while they still can. Malcom finally finds the idol in the rice container.
At the reward challenge (finally!), Jeff confirms what Denise and Malcom figured. Matsing is over and they’re asked to draw new buffs. Malcom draws a Tandang buff and Denise draws a Kalabaw buff. They went from alliance members to opposing tribes. So far, Survivor 2012 has been the Matsing show. Maybe now I can finally learn who all of these other players are! On to the challenge. Malcom becomes an instant hero for his new tribe as he wins them coffee, muffins and cookies.
Malcom is on cloud nine as he went from a team that has lost everything week after week to the winning team.
