Tonight on Survivor 2013 the Galang and Tadhana tribes will end and one new tribe, Kasama, will be born. But before we can get to that we need to address that pesky Redemption Island twist. We’ve finally reached the end of those arena challenges and one of the last three there will get to join the new, merged tribe.
The last Tribal Council victim to be sent to Redemption Island this season was Laura B after a very entertaining blindside last week. Forget Blood Vs Water, they should have named this season Survivor: Blindside. Good times for all. Well, all minus one.
This week’s episode of Survivor will kick off with Laura B arriving at Redemption Island to join John and Laura M. Back at the camps we’ll see a very grateful Vytas who has now survived another elimination vote and has now made it to the merge. How many lives does that cat have left?
Let’s find out who will make it back in to the game tonight and which castaway gets voted off tonight on Survivor!
Jeff tells John and the Lauras that what they’ve done so far doesn’t matter. It’s all about what they do right now in this challenge and the winner will re-enter the game.
The challenge is simple: hang on. Last player still hanging on their telephone pole will win the duel and get back in the game. Laura B immediately starts slipping and drops down a ring. After just 20 mins they look like they’re struggling. John starts to slide and kicks off his shoes to help. Uh oh, that sounds like a bad idea!
Laura B has found her comfort spot. Laura M has not moved at all. Oops! There goes John. He slides to the bottom and is out. What did I say? Way too heavy. This sort of thing is tilted toward a smaller framed woman.
Laura B is just about to the very bottom while the other Laura hasn’t budged. This shouldn’t take too much longer. Yep, that’s it. Laura B drops and that leaves just Laura M. She’ll return to the game and join the new merged tribe, Kasama.
Jeff says goodbye to Laura B and John before announcing the tribe merge. Next up is the Immunity Idol clue that Laura won in the duel. She can give it to herself, says Jeff, but guess what she does with it? Yep. Straight in to the fire. Sheesh.
Survivor is back tonight on CBS and this is a big one in the storyline of the season. The tribes will merge as Redemption Island closes its doors and send one castaway back in to the game. Thankfully that means we can get back to focusing more time on players still in the game rather than competitions with a revolving door. Yeah, I’m not going to miss Redemption Island one bit. Bring on the extra luxury competitions instead.
Either John, Laura M, or Laura B will be back in the game by the end of tonight’s Survivor and I’m guessing it’ll be Laura M but that’s just speculation with no spoilers to back it up. Which castaway do you think has what it takes? This does not look like an easy challenge and it’s not like anything John’s be able to dominant in the past few weeks.
The tribes will merge and we’ve got spoilers on the new tribe name if you want to check that out. Once they get together there’s immediate action by Tyson to secure a new secret alliance and I’m thinking he’s going to do well with this one. Is it finally time to say goodbye to Vytas or Aras? Castaways having been craving a split on those two for awhile now.
The final Redemption Island challenge arrives this week on Survivor 2013 Blood Vs Water. Thank goodness! John, Laura M, and Laura B will face off for one final chance at getting back in to the game and only one will walk back to join the new camp while the other two will walk off the game.
We’ve seen this type of challenge before and I’m not envious of what they’re going to go through. Each castaway will straddle a telephone poll (of sorts) and hang on for as long as they can. This is a complete deviation from what we’ve seen the castaways tackle so far this season. There’s no puzzle or strategy, it’s just a pure endurance competition.
Considering the competition I’m going to put Laura B at a disadvantage compared to John and Laura M who appear more physically prepared for this sort of challenge. Then between John and Laura M I’d have to go with Laura on this one. We’ve seen these sorts of things over and over on Big Brother competitions and the smaller frame woman frequently wins out over the larger male. Of course that’s all just a guess and we could all be very surprised when the results are revealed.
Check out a clip below and the pictures above for a look at what the final Redemption Island castaways will face on Wednesday night.
Survivor 2013 Blood Vs Water – Final Redemption:
Drop your buffs! It’s time for the Tribe Merge.
At the conclusion of this week’s Survivor 2013 episode we got a glimpse of what was coming up next and we now know it’s time for the end of Galang and Tadhana. Starting next week the two tribes will come together and form one tribe. Read on for spoilers and more details on what happens.
The Survivor 2013 castaways might still be playing the game on TV, but in real life they’re back home enjoying things like getting out their Halloween costumes. Check out some of the Blood Vs Water cast’s costumes they shared last night online.
Hayden and Kat went as bumblebees, plus the bonus shots of her in a cat suit for this week’s After Show with Pavarti Shallow. Brad was dressed as some sort of Freddy-ish Tadhana player. Colton and Caleb were the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin. Gervase went as “Bruce LeeRoy.” Then you’ve got Ciera as a flapper.
Which Survivor castaway do you think pulled off the best costume for Halloween this year?
