Here comes the merge. Gota is picked up in a boat and taken over to the Bikal camp and beach. Reynold points out it was nice to have a warm welcome considering they were battling as groups the day before. The newly formed group gets their color, green, and sets on a name “Enil Edam.” It’s Malcolm’s suggestion and turns out to be his mother’s name backwards, Madeline. Andrea thinks it means “new beginnings.” Sure.
It’s time for tonight’s Immunity Challenge. The castaways will be competing in an eating challenge. Eating disgusting stuff, that is. Just like we saw in this week’s spoiler of the challenge preview they’re about to eat some awful looking things.
Beetle larvae is the first tasty treat. Six castaways with the first three done will move on. Andrea, Malcolm, and Eddie is in. The rest tried that bug for nothing. Now we get the next group and Dawn can’t wait to eat hers whole. Ugh. Cochran nails it with no delay. Phillip and Michael join him to move on.
Next round… “ship worms” which aren’t really worms. Jeff says they’re like termites of the ocean. I don’t think I’d want those in my tummy. Malcolm, Eddie, and Cochran move on with Andrea just barely missing the chance to move on.
Round three… here are those duck embryos. I want to puke just watching this much less having to eat it. Cochran is the first to finish. Nice! Eddie starts to vomit while Malcolm struggles but comes out clean.
Last round… brains! Pig brains are the last “treat” of the challenge and earns either Malcolm or Cochran immunity. Wow!! That was so close. So close that I’d guess him simply standing closer earned him the win.
Heading in to tonight’s Tribal Council things seem scattered to say the least. There are so many plans to vote out that it’s hard to tell which will take shape. The main options appear to be Corinne and Sherri.
Jeff tallies the votes and reveals the results… Sherri has 5 votes before they all start turning against Corinne and we have a tie with two votes left to go. The ninth person voted off Survivor 2013 is Corinne. Wow, she really shot herself in the foot by trying to go for Phillip so soon, but this will hurt the Favorites in their numbers advantage.
Did the tribe make the right choice tonight on Survivor Caramoan?
