CBS PRESS RELEASE:
TWO IMMUNITY CHALLENGES SEND THE MERGED TRIBE TO BACK-TO-BACK TRIBAL COUNCILS AND, WITH ALLIANCES TEETERING ON SHAKY GROUND, EVERYONE IS SCRAMBLING FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOL, ON “SURVIVOR: HEROES VS. VILLAINS”
The hunt is back on for another idol and we will find out if the king of idols will find it yet again. Surely his luck is about to run out in that regard but this is Russell so you can’t ever tell. Blackwhale said Russ plays an idol at Candice’s boot so if this is correct, he has to find it during this episode.
We have two immunity challenges and two eliminations this week so a lot to get to in only an hour. Our first challenge is When It Rains, It Pours. Survivors are chained with their arms up in the air to a water bucket; if they lower their arms the bucket tilts and pours down on their head. Players can choose to eat and not participate in this competition. Blackwhale has this to say: “At the top 8, with the Heroes down at a 5-3 deficit, the offer is made, as it has been in a few seasons, to either feast or compete for immunity. Candice, feeling assured by her deal with Russell, chooses to eat! The Villain girls, who are already suspicious of Russell’s connection with Candice, become upset when Candice flagrantly sits out of the challenge. After Parvati wins immunity at the top 8, she again asserts her authority over Russell and has the girls’ backing to eliminate Candice before Rupert. Though Candice may not have been able to defeat Parvati in the challenge, she still made a critical error in showing her hand and helping to get the wheels in the girls’ heads spinning.” Supposedly Parvati will win this challenge.
Here is Candice, so does she choose to eat after she is hanging up there or are the spoilers wrong? Missyae says Candice is the next to go so at least that spoiler is correct.
The next immunity challenge is a multi staged obsticle course. In the vidcaps by Survivor Phoenix, we see running, digging and a table maze.
According to blackwhale, it comes down to Parvati, Rupert and Russell with Parvati the winner. At tribal council we know Danielle is the next to go, here is what blackwhale had to say: “Danielle is especially upset because not long before her boot, Sandra tried to recruit her to vote with Rupert and Colby to take out Russell. Danielle declines the opportunity and is subsequently betrayed by Russell. Russell doesn’t like how she’s drifting away from him. She was drifting away to an extent but was still loyal. But she made herself look shady and gave him an excuse to vote her out. Danielle didn’t reconcile the perception of her gameplay with her actual gameplay too well. Since she LOOKED like she was drifting away, she should have just actually done it and possibly made it to the end.
