We get started tonight on Survivor 2010 with what I thought was going to be an epic fight between Russell and Parvati but once again he disappoints me and just lets it go.
Russell talks to Candice and gets her to flip to the villain’s side and Rupert talks to Sandra and she wants to take out Russell. Candice lets Russ know that Sandra is planning on voting him out with the heroes but when Russ confronts Sandra she says otherwise.
Reward Challenge: Survivor Shuffle Board – 3 groups of 3 consist of team 1 – Candice, Parvati and Jerri. Team two is Rupert, Russell and Sandra and team 3 is Danielle, Colby and Amanda. Each person takes a turn to shove a puck towards an X on the board. Whomever’s puck is closest win reward for their team. Sandra is by far the worst once again and even Jeff tells her she wastes a shot. Russell and Rupert both get their pucks the closest so it’s up to Colby to win it for his team and he shoots and lands right on the X. The reward is going to the house owned by Robert Lewis Stevenson which is now a museum and spend the night there and watch Treasure Island and eat popcorn. Too bad they didn’t let them take a shower as well before sleeping in that nice bed. Danielle finds the clue to the next HII and slips it down and puts it under the bed. Amanda jumps up and goes to her side and grabs it. The two go at it and Colby finally tells Amanda that Danielle found it so it is hers so Amanda gives it back. I will say that if I had been Amanda there is no way in hell Danielle would have gotten that clue back. I would have torn it in a million pieces before giving it back to her.
Danielle shares the clue with the rest of her clique and she and Russ go on a search and Russ finds it but decides to hide it from her and Parvati since they did it to him last week. He does decide to tell Candice so she would know to trust him. Russ runs his mouth way too much. I understand why he showed Candice the idol but then he tells Sandra one of the heroes has flipped to their side. Later he tells Sandra that Candice let it slip that they were voting him out with Sandra leading the pack. Sandra and Candice have a little chat and Candice lets her know she wants Amanda gone.
Amanda doesn’t seem like herself this go around. She doesn’t say much and acts depressed when the cameras are on her. Perhaps she is sad that she is not working with Parv? I don’t know what it is.
Immunity Challenge is House of Cards and each person receives 150 tiles they use to make a stack up to 10 feet. Russ and Jerri bury everyone and Jerri wins her first immunity necklace just seconds before Russ. A really good effort by Russell.
At Tribal Council Russell lets it be known that he will take a risk all day long to further himself in the game and that’s why I like Russ. Win or lose, he makes things interesting with his bold moves. Russ plays the idol to be on the safe side and when Parvati’s name is written down he is upset with himself but it didn’t matter because Amanda was sent to Ponderosa for the first time. She will no longer have more days than anyone. Parvati tells Russ he wasted the idol. At the end we see that both Candice and Sandra wrote down Amanda’s name.
Next week we will see who wins when Parvati targets Russell’s new friend Candice.
Thursday is finally here so let’s get ready for some Heroes vs. Villains tonight on Survivor 2010. Can’t wait to see what goes down when Sandra tries to vote out Russell cause you know he’s not going to take that $hit lying down!
There seems to be a lot of confusion on who wins the immunity challenge and from what I’ve read it’s either going to be Jerri or Parvati. Blackwhale has said a couple of different things. One was Amanda gets voted out in a 6-3 vote with Jerri getting the three votes but then he/she said Jerri wins immunity. Jerri can’t have three votes against her if she wins immunity so it’s anybodies guess as to who wins.
Also, since both idols got played last week get ready for another clue and yes, another idol. It may not be this week when someone finds it but it will be soon because there should be another 3 or 4 played this season. Damn, that’s a lot of idols for one season.
Be sure to join us here for all pre and post show discussions!
CBS PRESS RELEASE: “IN THE WAKE OF A GAME-CHANGING TRIBAL COUNCIL, EVERYONE STRUGGLES TO FIND THEIR PLACE IN THE NEWLY MERGED TRIBE, AND SOME PANICKED PLAYERS CONSIDER MAKING NEW ALLIES
“Jumping Ship” – With two swing votes hanging in the balance, no one can be sure of their safety heading into Tribal Council, and even the most formidable villain in the game makes a potential miscalculation.”
We’ve seen Russell take down the almighty Boston Rob and pick off his alliances one by one. We have seen him pass off not one buy two idols to Parvati. We’ve even seen him hide his tribe’s machete and burn their socks but the one thing we haven’t seen that we weren’t expecting was him lose control to a girl. Could this be the week when Russell loses all control to Parvati and Sandra?
This is not the face of a very happy Russell. He and Parvati will have their conversation first thing Thursday evening. The two will begin to one up each other and even though they will work together, it won’t be the same.
Immunity Challenge is House of Cards from Gabon. Basically you need to have the tallest stack of cards before time runs out.
This callenge doesn’t look easy. According to blackwhale Parvati Jerri wins immunity but he/she said that last week as well so take it with a grain of salt.
The reward challenge is shuffleboard. The will compete in teams of 3 for movies and popcorn and Blackwhale says Amanda, Colby and Danielle are victorious. In the popcorn is a clue to the HII and Danielle and Amanda will wrestle for it with Danielle the winner. Back at camp she is stalked by the heroes who follow her every move.
Amanda will go to Ponderosa at TC. Why do you think they choose to vote out Amanda and how does Russell escape possible eviction from Sandra?
Thanks to SP for the vidcaps!
Update: Russell Hantz arrested details at Reality Rewind.
JT was played big time by Russell on this episode of Survivor 2010. He had JT eating out of his hand and even when Sandra tried to tell Rupert the truth, the whole heroes tribe with the exception of Rupert still believe the little troll.
The teams merge tonight and the Villains are given a map to the Heroe’s camp. The Heroe’s receive a locked trunk and Villains receive the key so when they merge the trunk is opened and we get the new black buffs and a lot of food. Food is going to be an issue because the Heroe’s don’t like the Villains eating so much but the Villains don’t really care as we find out later at the TC.
Parvati is basically ostracized when they arrive at camp. She knows the Heroes want her gone so she sticks to herself and lets Russell finagle all the deals. She does take a couple of walks with Amanda and Parvati tells her she has an idol. Not sure why she does this, maybe to test Amanda and to get the heat off herself? On their second chat Amanda tells her she needs to play the idol at TC and Parvati can tell she is lying.
Sandra gets a moment alone with Rupert and tries to tell him that Rupert that Russell is the kingpin but her strategy doesn’t work and she realizes she needs to work with Russ this week to get out JT. Smart move on her part to wait. The Heroes come up with a plan to tell Russ to vote out Parvati while they all vote out either Sandra or Jerri. They want to test his loyalty. Unfortunately their plan doesn’t work out too well.
At the immunity challenge which is everyone hanging onto poles until the fall off, Colby and Sandra are down in less than a minute followed by Russ then Rupert. Amanda and JT step down next with JT right behind. Candice decides to get out on her own even though she could stay up a while and Jeff questions why she does this. I don’t understand why Candice does this. Doesn’t she know it will make things harder on the Villains if one of them doesn’t win immunity? Now it comes down to Danielle and Parvati and Danielle tells her that she wants the necklace because Parv has the idol. Parv drops and Danielle wins individual immunity.
At Tribal Council Rupert says that camp life has been an adjustment. They all get in a little tiff over bananas. Rupert wants them to wait until there ripe to eat them. Gnome lets it be known that there are still two tribes. I almost wish we could have seen a tie tonight. That would have been fun. After the vote, Parv takes out her idol and hands it to Sandra. The heroes are snickering because they all voted for Jerri oh but hold your laughter, she then takes out another idol and hands it off to Jerri. With all the Villains voting for JT, he becomes the third member of the jury.
Russ looks at Parv and says, “You’ve got some explaining to do.” Things don’t look good Russ next week. Parv gains control over him and Sandra hooks up with the Heroes. How in the world does she save herself from getting the boot? This chick has 9 lives.
