It’s been a very long and exhausting day here, so my brain is a bit more friend than usual. It seems like the last episode was a month ago, but nope that was just last week. It’s been a long week too, it seems. But, I’m looking forward to this weeks Survivor 42 recap. So, let me rub some old lady cream on my back and get going!
Taku Tribe (orange) Taku (Orange)Tribe: Jonathan, Omar, Maryanne,
Marya, Jackson, Lindsay
Taku is down to four members after sending Marya home last week. Maryanne finds an idol. However, until the idol finders from all three tribes say their secret phrase, she can’t vote at tribal. Hopefully, this tribe will not be back at tribal this week.
Vati (Green Tribe) Lydia, Mike, Daniel, Kai, Jenny, Chantelle
Over on Vati, Mike has found the idol for his tribe, but Daniel is trying to convince him not to play it. Mike wants to read the idol in private so Mike stupidly gives it to him. However, when Daniel rereads the clue he realizes that if all the phrases are not shared at an immunity challenge, before the merge, the idols have no power, but they will get their vote back. So much for Mike and Chantelle’s plan to vote out Mike! Daniel lost the idol but quickly found it. That was shady.
Since losing the immunity, (See Below) this team is headed to tribal counsel. It’s either going to be Lydia or Jenny. I think Jenny one of the smartest players in the game. So it would benefit them to get her out. But I hope she stays. Daniel is a squirrely player and Mike doesn’t have a vote. But sides think Chanelle is on their side.
IKA (Blue) Tribe
Zach, Drea, Romeo, Rocksroy, Tori, Swati
This tribal camp was only showing in the challenges this week. What does that mean? I was hoping this was Tori’s week. 🙁
The Immunity Challenge
Jonathon is beasting this underwater diving challenge and is carrying the load to Taku. He’s even swimming them out to the buoy! Now he is basically doing a water rescue on each his team mates to get them back to the shore. The water is super rough! This looks so dangerous! Taku wins and the other two teams are getting killed by the waves! Mike is drowning! So are a couple of other people. Jeff pulls both teams out the water. He’s just going to give the last two teams the keys to the final part. It all came down to the last bag. Drea kept them out of tribal council. Chantelle and Omar were chosen by the winning tribe to go on an adventure. That was shocking. I had to watch it three times.
Chanelle and Omar, both seem to agree not to screw the other over. Chanelle says she cannot risk losing a vote tonight because of tribal council. It sounds like they both might risk their vote. Omar risks his vote. I think she did too. And in that case, they BOTH lost their vote.
At Tribal Council
Daniel is playing both sides. No idea what he is going to do. That’s kind of what you are supposed to do in this game. Daniel is running his mouth too much. He may be going. These tribals are so confusing. Chanelle does in fact lose her vote. Does Jenny have an extra vote? This is too suspeseful to recap. There are still fifteen minutes left in the show, so something weird is going to happen. Ah! The votes are tied. So they are going to vote again and hope someone jumps ship. Mike and Chanelle both are not allowed to vote so there were only two votes for the tiebreaker. Are you confused about what is about to happen? The rest of the tribe is.
Daniel starts making this super different. Hai refuses to change his vote to Lydia. Daniel is lying his face off. The only person who believes that Daniel is telling the truth is Lydia. With no way out of his lies, he votes out Jenny. He alienated himself from the entire tribe tonight.
