Survivor 2022 Recap: Season 43 Episode 2 – Lovable Curmudgeon

Last week on Survivor 43, we watched as Coco and Vesi both earned a win during the Immunity Challenge which sent Baka to the first Tribal Council of the season. We watched as the Survivor 2022 castaways voted Morriah Young out and this week, they hope to redeem themselves. Join me right here for all the details of tonight’s challenges and Tribal Council with my Survivor live recap!

Keep refreshing this page for all your Reward and Immunity Challenge results and Tribal Council votes throughout the night.

We started tonight’s episode off with Baka returning to camp after the Tribal Council. Owen expressed his gratitude to his tribemates for keeping him around after hearing that his name had been thrown around. Then we watched as the castaways are hammered by a wild thunderstorm. They all decide that they have to rebuild and reinforce the roof of their shelter in case they are faced with another storm like this one.

Meanwhile, we see Dwight and Jesse go off looking for Immunity Idols and Advantages. Jesse is working on building a relationship with Dwight since Dwight doesn’t seem to have any other allies within the Tribe. Jesse seems to trust Dwight and Dwight is happy to have Jesse to talk to.

Immunity Challenge:

In this week’s Immunity Challenge, the castaways will have to dive off a platform and get a giant snake out of a cage. On the snake there are pockets that are tied closed, inside the pockets, there are number tiles that make up a combination for a lock. The lock opens a box with puzzle pieces to a giant Survivor puzzle. They will also be playing for Reward. The first tribe to finish this competition will win a complete fishing set and the second tribe to finish will win a smaller fishing set.

Because Vesi and Coco have more people one person from each tribe will have to sit out. Noelle from Vesi and Karla from Coco choose to sit out. The losing tribe will get nothing except for a date with Jeff at Tribal Council. The losing tribe will also lose their flint, meanwhile, Baka is hoping to earn theirs back by winning tonight’s challenge.

Immunity Challenge winners: Baka (complete fishing set) and Coco (smaller fishing set)

That means that Vesi will be heading to Tribal Council and will lose their flint until the next Immunity Challenge.

Tribal Council Results:

Before the Tribal Council, Cody found a Hidden Immunity Idol with a twist attached. For this idol to have any power, Cody has to convince each of his tribemates to give him the bead attached to their bag. They have to be willingly given to him, he can’t just take them. Until the Idol has power, Cody has no vote. He was able to get everyone’s beads which allowed him to vote. Quick reminder, Dwight also has no vote because he lost it at last week’s Prisoner’s Dilemma.

Here is how the votes landed:

  • Justine – Nneka
  • Nneka – Noelle
  • Cody – Justine
  • Justine – Jesse
  • Justine – Cody

Five out of 3-1-1, Justine who’s voted off the island.
