Every time I sit down to write Survivor 42 recap it feels like 42 years since the last one. Also I just this second realized that The Thing About Pam didn’t tape last night. 🙁 I love that show! Anyway, the tribes have completely merged and things are getting interesting and I can’t wait for tonight’s episode.
The Reward Challenge
Back at the newly merged tribe, Mike tells us that the tribe is mostly working together except for Tori, Maryanne (don’t you come for my girl) Romeo and Chanelle. Even Drea is over Romeo. What did he do? Maryanne is crying alone in the dark because she knows she is in the bottom and it reminds her of being ignored by the cool kids in school all over again. She is going to be surprised by how much she is loved when the game is over. Omar and Mike are bonding and Mike has taken an interest in Omar’s religion with an open mind.
At the reward challenge since there was an uneven number of players, they drew rocks to see who would sit out and it was Maryanne. That’s not what she needs right now. Then, Drea offers to switch because the reward is PB&J and she doesn’t like that. She’s literally starving and is giving away a sandwich? I’m happy for my girl Maryanne though. Oh Drea gets the spot on the bench where a BEWARE advantage is hidden. Yay! Wow Lindsay is running and swimming against Jonathan and holding her own! Drea spots the advantage and quietly shoves it in her shorts. Once again Jonathan’s team wins the challenge basically on his own. After all of that they have to swim back to shore? The PBJ sandwich is ENOURMOUS.
Caught Red Handed
When Drea follows the clue to lead her to her advantage it’s in a hole filled with blood, or maybe red paint. So, she has to try to get it off before returning to camp. Drea now has one idol and three advantages! Tori realizes that Drea has something in her pants. At the immunity challenge, Lindsey, Maryanne, Omar and Drea forfeit playing for a bag of rice that will feed the whole tribe for four days. It’s a balance beam challenge where they have to balance buoy with two sticks. Hai falls immediately. Next to fall is Rocks, then Mike, then Romeo then Chanelle. It’s down to Tori and Jonathan. Tori wins her second back to back immunity. DAMMIT!
So Maryanne, Romeo and Chanelle are in danger of going home. It seems like everyone has beef with Chanelle. Romeo heard his name and was “causing chaos” AKA just asking around the camp if he was in trouble. Mike is still fighting for Chanelle. It looks like Maryanne is probably going to live to die another day, but you can’t be too sure. They sent Chanelle home. There was a strange vote for Hai, probably from Romeo. The rest were for Romeo.
Next week there are two immunity idols and two people going home. Also the bros decide to make an all male alliance because they outnumber the women. However, between Maryanne and Drea alone there are six advantages.
