Has the storm passed on Survivor 2013 Caramoan or will the aftershocks of Brandon’s meltdown continue to rattle the remaining castaways?
Tonight’s episode picks right back up as Bikal, the Favorites, return to camp and assess the damage their former teammate inflicted on everyone there. But enough of the whining and complaining, this is Survivor after all, where stress and horrible conditions are standard fare.
Reynold is hoping for a big shift in the game as we head in to tonight’s Luxury Challenge and boy could Gota use that tide change. Let’s see if he gets that wish.
Tribe switch! Jeff tells the castaways to drop their buffs and grab an eye filled with paint. Here are our new tribes.
Survivor 2013 Caramoan – New Tribes:
After last week’s disaster on Survivor 2013 thanks to Brandon’s self-implosion we’re back for another attempt at using the “Crate Outdoors” immunity challenge.
The Caramoan castaways will operate in two teams of course and must bring back giant wooden crates in pairs. Once they’ve retrieved all the crates they’ll position them along steps to form the correct phrase, “Fans Vs. Favorites.” First team to finish will win Immunity tonight on Survivor and dodge the Tribal Council bullet. Considering no one else is likely to be a stupid as Hantz, we probably won’t see another on-the-fly council held on the challenge field.
Tonight on Survivor 2013 Caramoan, a new dramatic force replaces Brandon Hantz. And that’s a tribe shake-up
We’ve got a 2:09 sneak peek at Episode 6 where Jeff Probst tells the contestants that things are about to change.
“Drop your buffs. We are switching tribes,” Jeff says before the sneak peek cuts off. So that’s all we really get as far as that goes. But what we get is a lot of Brandon talk.
Of course must of the promo is everyone talking about Brandon and what happened last week with his meltdown. Hopefully that won’t dominate tonight’s episode.
What would you like to see tonight? What kind of tribe scenario would you like to see if the tribes are getting mixed up?

“Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier …” the announcer says for the preview of this week’s Survivor 2013 Caramoan.
Let me translate that for you. What it really says is “Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more predictable, we decided to switch things up so that new alliances would form and the show would continue to be interesting.” Ha.
Yes, they’re switching tribes on this week’s Survivor. We’re not sure what all the switch entails, but according to Jeff Probst, the game basically resets. And according to the show synopsis below, makes it sound like the power isn’t fairly balanced.
A shake-up with the Tribes creates chaos and new alliances. Meanwhile, the game is thrown off-balance when one Tribe’s change results in a strength disparity between Gota and Bikal on the next episode of Survivor. — CBS

We all watched (uncomfortably) last week as Survivor 2013 Caramoan returning player Brandon Hantz suffered a meltdown that led to him being voted out of the game.
And every since, many fans have been wondering if Survivor producers took his emotional stability into account before putting him back in the game. Jeff Probst says they absolutely did and that Brandon passed a psych evaluation, just like all the other contestants.
“Regardless whether you are a new player or a returning player, every contestant on Survivor undergoes an evaluation from our show psychologist each time they play,” Jeff told Entertainment Weekly. “We never let anybody on the show who can’t pass the psych test. Brandon passed. He was also great in our interviews before the show began.”
Jeff said he and other producers were also ready and excited to see Brandon play the game this time around.
“We were actually very excited because he had a new approach to the game,” Jeff said. “He said he wasn’t going to be as emotionally reactive and felt that after playing once he was better prepared for the 39 day adventure. We felt Brandon had the potential for a true underdog story of a young man who was overwhelmed the first time he played and was seeking redemption.”
It’s unfortunate that Brandon didn’t stick to his word. It would have made for a great story, just like Jeff said.
