Vati (Green Tribe) Lydia, Mike, Daniel, Kai,
Yay! It is Survivor 42 recap night! Let’s see what new evil plans production has for this cast. Last week, in the most bizarre tribal ever, Jenny got sent home, and Daniel played himself and is probably on an island all by himself at this point.
It looks like we are going to get right to the Daniel situation. We begin with the Vati Tribe returning from tribal council. We they get back to camp, Daniel announces that it has been a very long night and he doesn’t want to discuss anything. He just wants to sleep. How convenient. But he does do a confessional and WAIT WHUT? He feels betrayed by his “#1” Chantelle? Dude, you literally screwed over everyone in your tribe in one tribal council! Then Chanelle says she wants to air her grievances to Daniel now. He accused her of blindsiding her. She didn’t do anything of the sort. She didn’t speak, let alone vote when he said that!
Then Chanetelle does blow up Daniel’s game even more. She says in front of everyone that Daniel told her that Mike has an idol and he doesn’t have a vote at tribal council. Kai feels blindsided by everyone except for Lydia. Kai rips Daniel apart in his confessional. So does Mike. Mike forms an alliance with Kai and Lydia. That leaves Daniel and Chantelle on the outs.
The Reward Challenge
Lo and behold, it’s a landlubber challenge. It’s one of those unravel a rope in a billion knots, pull a sleigh and then each team member needs to toss a basketball into a VERY high hoop. They are playing for ten fish. Once again, Jonathan is beasting this challenge and leading his team to victory. The guy is great at everything. Maryanne makes her basket right away! That’s my girl! Omar gets his. They all get their baskets very quickly and win all the fish. Drea complains that Jonathan led the whole thing an won it for them. What a poor loser. He’s on their team. Also, they each made their own baskets! So shut it!
Why do people have to be such sore losers. It’s not their fault they were only halfway through when they lost! Jeff asks about their win. Jonathan says they are a strong four. The other people are all insanely jealous of the Taku Tribe in general and Jonathan in particular. Jonathan is a force to be reckoned with. But, it’s all part of the game.
The fish are way bigger than they thought. The rest of the tribe is pissed that Jonathan said they were a strong group of four. They are worried that will bite them in the ass at the merge. I mean, come on, it’s kind of obvious. Jonathan does an interview talking about wanting to be on the show since he was eleven years old. And his dad was clearly a hard ass who basically required physical training all the time and pitted his sons against each other.
IKA (Blue) Tribe
Zach, Drea, Romeo, Rocksroy, Tori, Swati
Romeo builds a fire and Rock keep giving him directions. Rock is kind of a bully toward his tribemates. We seem to have forgotten about Tori for a few weeks. She is conspiring with Swati to get Drea out. They haven’t even been to the elimination challenge yet but the seem certain the are going to lose nonetheless. Drea has an extra vote. Swati tells Tori that everyone else wants Tori out. Tori tells Rock about Drea’s second vote. He didn’t know. But, Rock cant stand Tori. Now Drea is out for her too. Could it be time for Tori to leave? 🙂
Taku Tribe (orange) Taku (Orange)Tribe: Jonathan, Omar, Maryanne,
Marya, Jackson, Lindsay
The Immunity Challenge
My poor girl Maryanne keeps having to bring up “the classic tale of the bunny in the mailbox.” Sadly, no one else has a stupid phrase to say, so Maryanne has no vote yet again. But never fear, she has Jonathan on her team. Which is a good thing because Jeff is about to try and drown them all again. Two tribe members from each team have to swim through the ocean pulling a boat with two other tribe members in it. Good grief! Then they have to swim back and do a puzzle. This looks EXTREMELY hard. unless you get to ride in the boat! Jonathan and MaryAnne swim. But Jonathan once again does it all and Maryanne just hangs on to the boat.
Lydia can’t make the jump to get the key. Omar loses his key in the water and it is floating away. Vati is way behind because of the inability to get the keys. Taku AKA Team Johnathan is way in the front. Rock keeps trying to supervise the puzzle. Taku wins AGAIN! Vati pulls out a huge come from behind win for second place and safety! Ika is going to tribal council. Tori will probably go home but they need to send Rock home. He is a PITA. Tori is already thinking about playing her shot in the dark.
Tribal Council IKA (Blue) Tribe
Zach, Drea, Romeo, Rocksroy, Tori, Swati
Back at IKA Rocksroy is pissed. And he wants Tori gone. But, it is probably going to be Rocks. Romeo finds out that Swati told Tori that everyone wants to vote her out. But, Swati is telling everyone they are their number one. Romeo and Drea now want to work with Tori. Swati seems know people are conspiring against her, so she is trying to flip the plan. The tribe keeps flip flopping between Swati and Tori.
At Tribal Council, Jeff asks what the vibe of the tribe is. Basically, the vibe is off. Then, Swati throws Tori under the bus for trying to blindside Drea. Tori says it was Swati that wanted to blindside Drea. Romeo whisper to Drea to ask if she is using her extra vote. She says she doesn’t know. Rocks compliments Swati on her ability to open up despite her insecurities. Swati plays her shot in the dark but is still not safe. 🙁 Dammitall! Sweet Swati is voted out. These people suck at tribal councils. But, it make for a very interesting show!
