Last week we saw Jeremy and Val compete in the rope and hook challenge, but this one might be even tougher. The competing castaways, a pair between the two tribes, will have to carry balls on a paddle across an obstacle course before rolling them up a ramp to secure them in holes at the top.
The premise is simple, but when it comes to balancing anything it never turns out to be easy. I’m guessing there will be a lot of start-overs involved with this one.
Check out the photos below from CBS showing the arena challenge layout and the tribes arriving to witness the next competition.
This week on Survivor 2014, the Coyopa tribe is looking for its first win after a double round of victories by Hunahpu, but it’s still early with just one week in to the season so far.
Last week Dale may have bought himself some extra time in the tribe when he used his glasses to start fire, but how long will that goodwill last? Maybe the guys will band together with their numbers advantage now with Nadiya voted out. Should Hunahpu find themselves across from Jeff this week they’ll have to decide if it’s best to keep Natalie with her sister eliminated or if that just frees her up to be voted off next.
Who is left on Survivor 2014 Blood Vs Water? Here’s a rundown of the remaining castaways on each of the two tribes:
- Val Collins
- Baylor Wilson
- Jaclyn Schultz
- Alec Christy
Nadiya Anderson– eliminated last week
- Josh Canfield
- Wesley Nale
- Dale Wentworth
- John Rocker
- Jeremy Collins
- Missy Payne
- Jon Misch
- Drew Christy
- Natalie Anderson
- Reed Kelly
- Keith Nale
- Kelley Wenworth
- Julie McGee
We’ll soon find out if it’s Hunahpu’s turn at Tribal or if Coyopa is heading right back with this week’s Sumo wrestling challenge.
Next time on Survivor the Coyopa tribe has to start playing catch up on Blood Vs Water after two straight losses and Nadiya Anderson’s elimination.
Hunahpu pulled off a come-from-behind victory in the last Immunity Challenge, but with the Sumo/knock-out competition ahead this week we could see a shift. At the end of this week’s Survivor Live episode there was a sneak peek at the next Immunity comp and it looks like John Rocker might be Coyopa’s Goliath for this one. Well, unless Hunahpu’s Jon can pull off a David here.
The preview clip at the end of the first episode was more of a “this season on Survivor” than “next time on” set of clips. There’s hype that someone might be quitting the show and while that seems to happen a lot it doesn’t annoy me any less. I’m hoping it was just a bit of misleading head fake as CBS loves to pull in their promos, but it wouldn’t be surprising.
There’s also some drama coming up when a tribe loses their flint and makes a bargain with Jeff at the Exile arena when they all come together. That’ll also be where Natalie finds out her sister was voted off in Coyopa’s first Tribal Council. Nadiya hopes it’ll put a fire under Natalie’s feet, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
The Survivor “After Show” is back this season but this time around it’s going to be “Survivor Live” hosted by Big Brother alum Jeff Schroeder.
The first castaway voted off Survivor Blood Vs Water 2014 was Nadiya Anderson after her tribe decided her Amazing Race background and experience could spell trouble for them later. After being voted out with five votes against her, Nadiya sat down with Jeff to discuss her albeit brief experience on the season.
Interestingly Nadiya says she and her sister decided to not openly reveal the fact that they twice played on TAR. We saw in the premiere that it was immediately discussed and they were the ones to do it, but perhaps someone else identified them before that conversation with Jeff happened.
Nadiya also says that while they weren’t told it was a Blood Vs Water theme they suspected it would be because of the two of them being invited together. The alternative, she suggested, would have been a season entirely comprised of twins, but she knew that wasn’t going to happen.
Check out Nadiya Anderson’s full “Survivor Live” interview with Jeff below.
Survivor Live – Nadiya Anderson interview:
It was a busy start to the Survivor season this week when the eighteen castaways kicked off Blood Vs Water with an immediate Exile Island challenge and ran all the way through a surprise Tribal Council.
Nadiya ended up being targeted likely for her Amazing Race background. Will her sister earn the same fate on the other tribe? We’ll have to see if Coyopa can pull off a win next week and make that a possibility.
Check out all the pics from last night’s show and get ready for the brand new season to roll on. We’ve got about three more months of new Survivor episodes to enjoy with the return of the Blood Vs Water twist.
