This Survivor 42 Recap will probably be brief. I am mentally exhausted by the RHOC Reunion recap. Thank God that season is over. And sadly Survivor gets very little love on this site and the people who do come have seen the episode. So forgive me for being a little short on the recap if that is how it works out.
We start right at the end of tribal council. Romeo is pissed because he had three votes. He tells everyone there are no hard feelings. But, he has hard feelings. Can we PUHLEASE get rid of Tori this week? Hai is also pissed because someone voted for him. Dude. Calm down. Take a page from Romeo’s book and simmer down! I like Hai and want him to stay! He seem to know it was Romeo. The Bros alliance, Hai, Rocksroy, Jonathan and Mike meet up and Hai says he wants Romeo gone next. Rocksroy complains to the camera that the bros are literally feeding everyone and that has put a target on them. Not really. These are four strong players that the rest of them need to get out ASAP. They were fools for not getting rid of Jonathan when they had the chance.
The Bros Alliance
The four bros want to bring Omar and Romeo into a full on male alliance and send home all the girls. I’m not sure that Omar and Romeo will be down with that. HOWEVER, Romeo and Omar and the four remaining girls could pick off the other four guys. And neither Omar or Romeo want to join the Bros. We go straight to the Immunity Challenge. Is there no reward this week? These people need food! It looks like another attempt to drown the remaining ten. They have to balance on a triangular platform with very little room to balance. Smaller than most of their big twos. Two people will win immunity and two people will go home! They will be divided into two teams. One person on each team gets immunity. One person on each team goes home in two different immunity challenges. The last one standing wins food for their team.
I don’t think this will be Jonathan’s challenge. The blue team is Drea, Tori, Jonathan, Maryanne and Lindsey. I think Tori could win this and they could vote Jonathan out. The orange team is Mike, Rocksroy, Omar, Romeo and Hai. So a guy is totally going home tonight. When the game starts, Maryanne falls, Rocksroy falls, Omar falls, and Mike falls in like the first five seconds. So the Orange Team is down to just Romeo and Hai. The ocean is so rough this challenge is almost over in the first minute. Romeo touches the float so he is out and Hai has immunity for team Orange. But he needs to keep fighting for food for his team. The blue team is down to Lindsey and Jonathan. Lindsey falls. Jonathan has immunity. But Jonathan and Hai still battle it out for food. Hai falls and Jonathan wins the food. Mike wants to send Romeo packing. But, my money is on Rocksroy leaving. No one gets along with him really.
The Two Teams Discuss Who Needs To Go
The teams go back to different camps. That will certainly make it more interesting. The orange team is all male. Romeo is sure he is going home. But I still feel like it will be Rocksroy. He’s abrasive. Omar and Romeo want to send home Rocksroy. Hai is the swing vote. Romeo is really worried. Hai is worried that he will lose his alliance with Mike if he votes out Rocks without telling him. So he goes to talk to him. Mike thinks getting Rocks out tonight will make them look not loyal to the bros. But Hai is Mike’s number one. So we shall see.
Meanwhile over on the blue team they are munching down on the kebabs they won and deciding who needs to go. Suddenly, Jonathan is being nice to Maryanne again even though he offered her up on a silver platter a few days ago. He tells her he wants to get rid of an idol. Not hers but Drea’s. Drea has FOUR ADVANTAGES though. So I hope she uses some of them at his tribal. Jonathan says that the two of plus Lindsey can get Drea out. But then he says they are going to have Drea vote for MaryAnne. Oh HAIL to the no! I do not trust this guy. Maryanne is all the way over Jonathan now. YAY! I hope the girls team up to vote out Tori and Jonathan is the hinky vote for Maryanne.
Jonathan Is Kind Of A Dick
Then Jonathan tells Drea to vote out Maryanne and she seems to agree. It’s too bad he has immunity in this game. Then he tells Tori that the plan is for the three of them to vote out Drea. But, Tori points out that if they vote out Drea, and she plays her idol then their “alliance” would lose Maryanne’s idol and an extra vote. Now Jonathan is confused. Jonathan is treating all the girls like children. So Maryanne and Lindsay talk about sticking together with Drea because Maryanne and Drea both have idols and advantages. They all want to vote Tori out. YAY! But no one has talked to Drea yet other than Jonathan? Jonathan THINKS he is running the show, but he is not.
It’s Time For TWO Tribal Councils
Up first is Mike, Rocksroy, Omar, Romeo and Hai. It really will all come down to who Hai votes for. Either Hai are Rocksroy. Rocksroy says there were no conversations to amongst the guys about who to vote out. OUCH! Whenever you think that on Survivor, It’s you dude! Rocks votes for Romeo. Everyone else votes for him. When he goes to the jury he says to Chanelle, “Hai and Romeo got together and did this. I hope they freeze.
Now the other tribe is brought in. All of their jaws drop to see Rocks sitting in the jury. They all can’t believe it. Maryanne looks like she might cry. She is shaking like a leaf. Then, she starts talking too much. Drea says it is unfortunate that there were four black players and not it seems like they are all being voted out. Then, she says, she is playing her idol tonight so she can stay in this game. Clearly she is not going to vote out Maryanne. So YAY! Goodbye Tori! Then Jonathan whisper to her and asks her what she wants to do. She says she wants Tori out. Jonathan whispers to Maryanne, but we are not told what he said. I do not trust this guy. But, Maryanne nods in agreement. Then Jonathan whispers to Lindsey that Drea wants Tori out and tells her to tell tells her to tell Tori it is still Drea. Again, I do not trust this guy. Then Maryanne tells the other girls she cannot write Drea’s name down.
This Is Hearbreaking!
Then Maryanne says it out loud in front of everybody. This is such a simple tribal. VOTE OUT TORI! Now I am worried for Maryanne. Then Jonathan has to open his big dumb mouth and argue with Drea and Maryanne about whether or not it is racist sending the black people home one after another. Know when to shut the fuck up Jonathan and just be glad you have immunity. Because you are also a misogynist. Then he basically calls Drea and angry black woman. Oh Lord. Drea cries. This is so heartbreaking. I hate this still happens in our world. Maryanne says she is going to play her idol in unity with Drea because if they don’t the viewers will say the played the race card. She’s right. I think that is a strong move and Drea has more advantages she can share. I think Maryanne also has and extra vote.
Maryanne gives an amazing speech. Jeff asks if going upstairs to vote will be traumatic and they could all do it right there. Jonathan asked if they would turn in their idols first. What a prick he turned out to be. They both get up immediately and play their idols. So now it is down to Tori or Lindsey. This should be an easy vote. Everyone is going to vote for Tori so she is going to play her shot in the dark. That’s not exactly how it works. But whatever. Nothing is going according to plan tonight. If Tori gets her shot in the dark, then Lindsay is going home. Please God let Tori go home. YAY! TORI IS GONE! Is there a Ponderosa this season? Because I need to know what is going on over there. But first I need to go watch Beyond the Edge. I’m an emotional wreck at this point.
