  1. We’re back at the Mana camp and they are thanking Tai for staying loyal. He says it was hard to write down Caleb’s name, but he is here to play his game. Hali is hoping to ingratiate herself to Debbie and throw Tai under the bus and show she might be a better asset. Debbie says it’s too early to make Tai a target and Hali has no options. It’s time for reward challenge. Only two members for each tribe will run the challenge. The first member will run through a series of obstacles while balancing a ball on the end of a pole. At the end of each leg, you’ll add more pole making it more difficult. Once you reach the end, the next player will use that ball to release a key that will unlock a box. You’ll use the sandbags inside to knock down nine bamboo targets. First two tribes to finish win reward. First place gets everything they need to make coffee, including cups, sugar, iced tea, and chocolate chip cookies. Second place gets a thermos of ice coffee. Running for Nuku is JT carrying the ball and Malcolm throwing the sandbags. For Tavua Ozzy will carry the ball and Troyzan throwing sandbags. For Mana Tai will carry the ball and Culpepper will throw the sandbags. Jeff gives the go. JT and Tai drop at the first obstacle, but Ozzy makes it through the first section. JT makes it through the first section with Tai shortly behind. Ozzy is through the second section and is starting the third section. JT is just ahead of Tai. JT makes it through the second section. Ozzy drops his ball and has to go back. JT and Ozzy are both starting the third section. Tai is a little behind. Ozzie is through and Troyzan is unlocking the box. JT is through and he is unlocking the box. Troyzan hits his first target, then his second. Malcolm also hits two back to back. Tai drops his ball again and has to go back. Malcolm is in the lead with four and Troyzan ties again. Malcolm and Troyzan both have two left and Tai finally finishes the obstacle. Culpepper tries to catch up. Malcolm wins reward for Nuku. Culpepper is catching up and has three left. Troyzan has two left. Culpepper comes from behind and comes in second. Tavua walks away empty handed. Back at Tavua Ozzy says losing reward was ok with him because without him they wouldn’t survive in the game. We see Ozzy fishing and hear him talking about how much fish and protein he can provide that makes him valuable to his tribe. Ozzy comes back with a stingray and his tribe is excited. At Nuku, everyone is thanking JT and Malcolm. Sandra is telling us she is running the show and she has everything in line. JT and Malcolm go off and JT says Sandra is dangerous in the game and Malcolm agrees. JT says if they lose immunity he can make his move and get rid of Sandra. Immunity is back up for grabs! Here’s how today’s immunity challenge works: One person will be the caller and the rest of the tribe will be blind folded and tethered together in pairs. Using only verbal commands, the caller will guide their tribe through a series of obstacles to a tower. They’ll pull on a rope and dump the water along with a bag. Once you have all three bags, you’ll use the balls inside to maneuver them through a table maze. Your goal is to get all three balls in their final resting spot. Nuku has one extra person, they’ll sit out Sandra. Tavua will sit out Troyzan. The first, and only the first, will win immunity. Losers, BOTH tribes go to tribal council. Jeff gives the go! Varner, Culpepper, and Cirie are the callers. Nuku and Mana send all their pairs at once. Cirie sends one at a time. Ozzy and Zeke are the first to get their bag for Tavua. JT and Michaela get their first bag for Nuku. Sierra and Hali have the first bag for Mana. Ozzy and Zeke head back out. Malcolm and Aubrey have their second bag for Nuku. Andrea and Sarah got their second bag for Tavua. JT and Michaela have their third bag for Nuku and head back. Debbie and Tai have their second bag for Mana. Nuku is back with all three and they can start on their table puzzle. Malcolm falls while running to the table puzzle. Ozzy and Zeke have their third bag for Tavua and head back. Sierra and Hali have their third bag for Mana and head back. JT is working on the puzzle for Nuku. Tavua is heading towards the puzzle and Ozzy starts working on the table maze. Ozzy drops and has to start again. Sierra is the first on the table maze for Mana. JT has the first ball and Michaela comes in for the second ball. Sierra drops and trades off with Hali. Ozzy has Tavua’s first ball and Sarah steps in. Malcolm gets their second ball and Varner steps up. Hali struggles and Culpepper takes over. Sarah gets their second ball for Tavua. Andrea steps in for the third ball. Culpepper gets the first ball for Mana. Varner and Andrea are very close to finishing. Varner slides by and drops the ball. Andrea moving slowly and drops the third ball. Tavua wins immunity and is safe from tribal council. Nuku and Mana will go to tribal council as one group and will vote out one person. Back at Nuku, JT says we get to decide who goes home on their tribe. Sandra says that’s what she thought they said. Malcolm says they could do that, but it looks good on paper and you never know what Jeff will do. Sandra doesn’t not want anyone to flip. Sandra tosses out Sierra’s name because she thinks Sierra is the strongest female. JT thinks Tai is a better choice and he doesn’t think he has an idol. Malcolm asks who they think the other tribe will target and JT says Sandra. JT says he’s pretty sure that’s what Culpepper will do and he could be the swing vote and vote out Sandra. Over at Mana, Debbie says they need to convince them to take out Sandra. Culpepper says they have four voting the same way, but Hali is a wild card. He says if they can keep five unanimous that will speak volumes. Hali says she suddenly has options. Culpepper thinks JT will go Sandra but Sierra thinks they should go Malcolm. They think it’s stupid not to get Malcolm out. They realize it’s going to come down to JT. Tai goes to look for an idol. Tai finds the clue to an idol. He starts looking and begins digging and finds an idol. Tai tells them he found the idol and Sierra is excited but terrified. Jeff has whoever doesn’t have a torch get their fire, and that is JT. Jeff asks Malcolm about the twist and the feeling at camp. Malcolm says this is very different from a normal council and you have to go through every scenario to figure out how to play it. Jeff says it’s easy to see numbers 6 to 5, but everyone also has their own agenda. Culpepper says it’s what he calls a Mexican stand-off in his line of work where everyone has guns. But is one of their guns pointed at themselves and is one of his tribe’s guns pointed back at them. Sandra says all their guns are pointed at them. Jeff asks Debbie what the five of them could do to upset the six. Debbie says one of those 6 used to be really, really closed to four of them. Jeff asks who is that and Debbie says JT. Sandra says she said the magic words, “USED TO”. Jeff says JT, it really is a tough game to play because you started the game with one group and now on a tribe with different people changes your game. JT says people who expect me to do something to put myself at risk would be a shot in the dark for him to land in the right place. Culpepper says look at the big picture, there are a lot of threats out here and he thinks there are more threats on their team, like Malcolm and a two-time winner and that’s the biggest threat here. Jeff asks Sandra he’s not surprised that she’s clearly a threat. Sandra says she isn’t worried. She knows she’s not going home tonight, how about that? Jeff says Malcolm, Culpepper mentioned Sandra and he mentioned you. Malcolm says it sounds like the kind of thing you say when you’re scared. You’re trying to get the target off your back, but when these twists happen, it’s part of the game but if it sent him home, he’d be cussing his way down the ramp. Jeff asks Varner if there’s been much talk about idols. Varner says yeah, they talked about what could happen, what would happen, if each individual one of them had the idol and how that would go. They ran through everything. Sierra says as much as the other tribe looked at the big picture, they looked at the big picture too and it’s about evaluating who is best to go with tonight. Jeff asks Debbie what she’s thinking right now. Debbie says she has two big questions, does he flip and points to JT, or does she flip and points to Hali. Culpepper says for Hali, should she not stay with them, she’ll be public enemy number one. Hali says that’s not a good speech to groom her in and Varner says that’s true. Hali says they are in a potential throwing rocks situation and more information could avoid that. Sandra says they don’t have any concerns about their plan. Sierra says it sounds like they don’t need you Hali and Debbie says we need you and want you. Sierra says you stand with us Hali and Michaela says yeah, on the outside where they put you. Jeff says JT that got a reaction from you. Are you genuinely distressed and he says very much so and he’s had a lot of things going through his head. Sierra whispers to Hali she has to stay with them. Jeff says as JT is talking, Sierra and Hali are having a conversation that Malcolm is just eavesdropping on. Hali says she wants to say something and says she thinks this is a stupid time in the game to be thinking about anything other than physical threats. Sandra begins whispering to everyone on her tribe that Hali wants Culpepper out and Jeff says Culpepper, football term, there’s an audible. Potentially a change from their original plan. Culpepper says maybe even though they came in lock stock on their original plan. Sierra whispers that she thinks it’s her and Culpepper says no and Tai says stick with the plan. JT goes over to whisper to Brad that he loves him, but they want to vote Sierra out. Hali says if that’s what we’re going to do she gets up and goes to whisper to Sandra they have to vote Brad, it’s what’s best. Several players are getting up and whispering. Jeff is amazed. Culpepper tells his tribe it’s Sierra and there are conferences on both teams. Jeff asks what just happened? Aubrey says a bunch of carrier pigeons were going back and forth. Jeff says he’s never seen anything like it. JT whispers to Culpepper to vote for Sandra. Jeff asks if they’re ready to vote and they all say they’re ready. It’s time to vote. Jeff tells Hali it’s her turn and she says it’s not ready. There is a back and forth and Sandra tells Hali it’s ok to just vote. Jeff goes to tally the votes. If you have an immunity idol, now is the time to play it. Tai pulls out his idol and gives it to Sierra. Sierra gives it to Jeff. Jeff says this is a hidden immunity idol and any votes cast for Sierra will not count. First vote, Sierra, does not count. Sierra, does not count. Sierra, does not count. Sierra, does not count. Sierra, does not count. Sierra, does not count. Malcolm. Malcolm. Fourth person voted out of Survivor game changers, Malcolm. That’s enough bring me your torch. Jeff says tonight’s tribal council is a shining example of why Survivor is so entertaining and devastating. Because no matter how many times you play, no matter how certain you are, the game can still smack you in the face. Grab your torches, head back to camp.
  2. Night two of The Voice battle rounds starts now! The first pairing of the night from team Gwen is Johnny Gates vs Sammie Zonana. Gwen has chosen the song I Drove All Night by Celine Dion. They get a chance to practice the song before seeing their advisor. Gwen says they need to work the room a little bit. Celine says it’s so original and she is really thrilled. Gwen says Johnny has a lot of character in his voice and Sammie is so honest in her vocals. The battle begins now! Adam says it was nice to listen to a great song and they are both really unique. Adam would pick Johnny, but Sammie is awesome. Blake says he would also go with Johnny, but Sammie too. Alicia says she loved that Sammie was moving and had individuality. Alicia would also choose Johnny. Gwen says she is impressed they made the song their own. She says Sammie sang from her heart and it was the best she’d ever seen her. Gwen says Johnny has great stage presence and she doesn’t have anyone like that on her team. Gwen says the winner of the battle is…Johnny Gates. Team Alicia’s next pairing is Chris Blue vs RJ Collins. Alicia has given her team the song Adorn by Miguel. Alicia says tells them to stay focused the first half of the song and then they can add themselves into the song. DJ Khaled says he wants to see the two voices mesh together. He adds they have a lot of good energy. DJ Khaled says they have a New Edition sound or Jodeci. Let the battle begin! Gwen says she was mesmerized by Chris’s body and she had a hard time paying attention to RJ because she was distracted. Gwen says RJ’s voice was beautiful but she would pick Chris. Adam says they were both really comfortable and he really thought it ended up being super even. Blake says RJ’s stage presence is incredible, but Blake thinks Chris will be in the finale. Alicia say she was taken by RJ’s voice and his emotion. She says she’s proud of both of them. Alicia picks for her winner…Chris. From Team Adam, the pairing was Josh West vs Nala Price and they sang Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears. Adam chose Josh as the winner for that battle. From Gwen’s team, the pairing was Aaliyah Rose vs Savannah Leighton and they had the song Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes. Gwen picked the winner as Aaliyah. From team Blake the pairing was Andrea Thomas vs Micah Tryba and they sang What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts and Blake chose Andrea as the winner. Team Blake has the last pairing of the night and he has paired Aliyah Moulden vs Dawson Coyle. Blake has given them the song Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves. Blake tells Aliyah she was pitchy on the versus but spot on during the chorus. Blake tells Dawson to make sure he’s not flat and focus on getting to the note. Luke says if they start relaxing and having fun with the song it will be hard for anyone to let them go. Let the battle begin. Alicia says the chemistry was amazing. She says Aliyah had a presence and Dawson has a charisma. Alicia tells Blake she doesn’t know how to help him decide who to keep, but maybe she would choose Dawson. Gwen says she could tell Dawson was having fun with it but Aliyah was adorable. Gwen says she would hold on to Aliyah. Adam says they were both good but he would choose Dawson. Blake says Dawson was getting the girls to react and he says Aliyah was adorable. Blake says the winner of the battle is…Aliyah. Dawson is available to steal. Dawson tells Blake he pushed him to be a better vocalist. Alicia hits her button as Dawson goes to shake Blake’s hand. Alicia says she felt an energy that was pure and strong and he’ll have his own world and spot on her team.
  3. The blind auditions are over. Now the battle to win The Voice begins. Tonight helping our coaches to prepare their teams are four of the biggest names the show has ever had. Joining Team Adam is John Legend. Team Blake has Luke Bryan. Helping Team Alicia is DJ Khaled. And advising Team Gwen is Celine Dion. With advisors of this caliber, performances will reach new heights, coaches decisions will be more heartbreaking, and their steals more crucial. The battle to be named The Voice starts right now! Blake is kicking off his first battle of the season with Brennley Brown vs Lauren Duski. Blake has given them the song Better Man by Little Big Town. Blake advises Lauren to add a little anger to her verse and she says it’s an emotional song. Blake suggests Brennley to work on her diction. Luke likens Brennley to Taylor Swift and Lauren to Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town. He puts them on an even playing field. Let the battle begin! Alicia tells them it was so beautiful. She says Lauren has a strong, raspy thing going on. Alicia felt Brennley was clear about what she was delivering. Gwen says she loves Brennley’s confidence. Gwen says Lauren’s voice is rich and she has a such an ease on stage. Gwen would pick Brennley. Adam says Lauren seemed more comfortable and graceful, but Brennley seems a bit more real. Blake says he is deciding based on who he feels he can move forward with on his team. The winner of this battle is…Lauren. Carson reminds them Brennley is available to steal. Gwen immediately hits her button. Adam also pushes his button. Carson says congratulations to Brennley, she’s back on The Voice in a big way. Gwen says she wanted to work with Brennley as soon as she came out. She says it’s not just her voice, but her spirit and she really wants to work with her. Adam gets up to go to the stage and he sings Happy Birthday to Brennley with Carson singing along. Adam then says he had so many ideas of things he wanted to do musically with Brennley. Brennley’s new coach is…Gwen. Gwen’s first pairing for the battle rounds is JChosen vs Kenny P. The song Gwen gave them is I Was Made to Love Her by Stevie Wonder. Celine says she felt JChosen was a little restricted and to be good when it’s time. Gwen says JChosen is talented but she saw the nervous side she wasn’t expecting. Celine tells Kenny P to take his time and not to overkill the other singer. Gwen says she thinks the song is perfect because it has soul and rock and they have to figure out how to make it come together. Celine says they did an amazing job. This battle begins right now! Adam loves what JChosen does and he has an incredible way of performing. Adam tells Kenny P he was great and he thinks they were dead even. Blake says JChosen’s voice was so smooth and Kenny P has an edginess to his voice and he doesn’t know what he would do if he were Gwen right now. Alicia says she loved the high falsettos and their camaraderie on stage. Gwen says she feels like Kenny P is so natural and he knows who he is and what kind of music he wants to make. Gwen says she was looking for some of the nervousness in JChosen she seen in rehearsal, but it was all gone. The winner of the battle is…JChosen. Now let’s check in with Alicia and her first pair of the battle rounds. She has paired Anatalia Villaranda vs Missy Robertson because they both have powerful voices. Alicia has given them the song Tightrope by Janelle Monae featuring Big Boi. Alicia tells them not to do the second run so they can get back into the song. DJ Khaled says they took all their advice and added more is rare, but they did it. Alicia says Anatalia is working the rhythm and Missy has the flair. Let the battle begin! Gwen says she’s shocked because this tiny little doll is a firecracker. Gwen says Missy put some notes in she didn’t expect. Adam says it was like a whole two-hour concert packed into two minutes. Adam says Anatalia is amazing, but Missy is so good. Adam is more attracted to what Missy did. Blake says Anatalia is talented and flashy and he says Missy was undeniable. Alicia says it was so exciting and they are both really incredible. The winner of this battle is…Anatalia. Adam’s first battle pairing is Gaby Borromeo vs Mark Isaiah. Adam selected the song Pillowtalk by Zayn for his team. John Legend tells Gaby she might want to push herself to be a little raspier. Adam tells them to sing the song better than anything they’ve done their entire lives. Adam says they’re both exceptional, but they both need to work on their upper register to nail the song. John gives them advice how to fix the middle where there’s an awkward moment of silence. Adam says they are both harmonizing well. The battle starts right now. Blake says that was so good. Blake thinks Mark had a grasp on the syncopation and he’s leaning more towards Mark. Alicia says they both performed really well and it really depends on what Adam wants his for team. Gwen says Mark is really special and she’s a fan of him. Gwen tells Gaby her voice is so beautiful and she did great. Gwen is leaning towards Mark. Adam says they both had great chemistry. Adam says Mark is a really strong singer and Gaby is great too. Adam’s winner of the battle is…Mark. Alicia’s team is up with her next battle pairing of Felicia Temple vs Quizz Swanigan. Alicia has given them the song Titanium by David Guetta featuring Sia. Alicia says Felicia has a way of singing this song that is so emotional, but she wants to hear her joy. Alicia tells Quizz he needs to work on reach the notes he doesn’t think he can reach. DJ says Quizz is a great singer with potential and Felicia is an amazing singer. Alicia says they’ll have to work hard to figure out how to show their emotion over the noise. Let the battle begin! Gwen says Quizz has a unique tone to his voice, but Felicia’s voice and tone are so warm. Gwen would choose Quizz because he’s 13. Adam says the only thing Felicia doesn’t have going for her is she isn’t 13. He says in this moment he would go with Felicia. Blake says he can’t say enough about Felicia’s voice, that it’s more developed. He would go with Felicia just based on what he heard. Alicia says she thought Felicia let her shield down and exposed herself. She says Quizz took direction very well and they both succeeded in an incredible way. Alicia decides the winner of the battle is…Quizz. Carson reminds the judges Felicia is available to steal. Felicia says it was a privilege to perform for them. Blake hits his button and steals Felicia. Blake says there is no reason she can’t win this thing and he wanted to keep her in the competition. Blake’s final pairing of the night is Ashley Levin vs Casi Joy. Blake has given them the song How Blue by Reba McEntire. Luke says the front of the song is unbelievable. Blake tells them they need to give a performance the other coaches can’t live without. Blake advises Casi to turn down the growl because it comes off aggressive. Blake says this will be his toughest battle round. It’s time for the last battle of the night. The battle starts now! Alicia says Casi has a vivacious energy and Ashely is a bit more reserved but Alicia senses there is more. Gwen says Casi seems a little more seasoned but Ashley has a beautiful voice and maybe needs a touch more help on stage presence. Adam thinks Ashley might have taken it. Blake says he had to pair them because they needed to be out of each other’s lane and he hopes they both stay on the show. Blake decides the winner of the battle is…Casi. Carson reminds the coaches Ashely is available to steal. Ashley thanks Blake so much. Adam and Gwen both hit their buttons, then Alicia also hits hers. Carson says he can’t remember the last time all three coaches went all in for a steal. Adam points out he is the only person who though and said that Ashley won the battle. Gwen says she has a newfound love for country and she feels like she could help her learn how to work the stage. Alicia feels like Ashley showed her vocal prowess and she thinks she has so much more to say. Alicia says Adam was the only one who didn’t turn in the auditions and soul and country are close and she would love to be her coach. Ashley decides to go with team…Alicia.
  4. We start immediately with Jeff calling everyone in. Nuku gets their first look at the new Mana tribe with Tony getting voted out at the last tribal council. Jeff says let’s see how savvy you guys are as a group. He says what’s happening? Everyone waits and then Zeke says we’re about to swap and Jeff says you’re right. Everybody, drop your buffs. Sandra says he was leading the sheep to slaughter and she hopes she’s on the right side with the strongest people. Everyone doesn’t want to look and they all pick blind. There is a new tribe, a green buff, and they are going to three tribes. The new Mana tribe is Caleb, Hali, Culpepper, Tai, Sierra, and Debbie. The new Nuku tribe is Sandra, Michaela, JT, Malcolm, Aubrey, and Varner. Jeff asks Tai how it feels to be reunited with Caleb. Jeff also points out JT is the only one from his tribe to be on his beach with a new tribe. The new tribe is called Tavua and has Troyzan, Andrea, Zeke, Ozzy, Cirie, and Sarah. Jeff points out Troyzan is the odd man out on his new tribe. He gives the new tribe a map to their beach and flint. They are starting over. JT is showing everyone around his camp. Malcolm is excited they now have the tool kit and the chickens and he notices they decorated their shelter. Varner feels like the won a reward. JT says he was kind of happy about the swap. JT is going to take them snorkeling so he can get back to camp and start looking for an immunity idol. The rest of the tribe speculate what JT is doing and they think he might be looking for an idol. Over at Mana, Culpepper starts decorating their new camp. Culpepper says their four original Nuku will stick together and Hali thinks maybe with Caleb there she will be a less likely target. Culpepper wants to get rid of Caleb first because he played with Debbie and Tai. Tai talked to Caleb and told him he would be ok, but he may have to betray his friend or betray Culpepper. The new Tavua comes into their new camp and Zeke says everything is congenial for now, but he points out Troyzan is on the outs for obvious reasons. Ozzy says he feels like he has to take the lead and help them get started on building their camp. Zeke and Cirie talk and he assures Cirie she is safe. Cirie says she thinks Ozzy is still skittish with her and he’s trying to cultivate a relationship with him. Ozzy says originally he didn’t trust Cirie, but now he needs to try and trust her and Troyzan could be an easy first vote. Andrea also points out that Survivor is a numbers game so they are all trying to make Troyzan feel comfortable. Troyzan says he learned from his first experience and he begins looking for the idol. Back at camp the others don’t want him to get it. Troyzan sees a bottle stuck in the sand and he has found a clue to the hidden immunity idol which shows the location, which will be at the immunity challenge in the corner of a table. We are at Nuku and JT tells his new tribemates about the goats and they talk about catching them. JT and Malcolm begin trying to catch a goat. JT caught a goat and hands it to Sandra and goes to help Malcolm with a second goat. They caught two goats. Malcolm says they aren’t going to kill the goat, but they have to be careful with Sandra because she wants to eat it. Sandra doesn’t see anything wrong with killing and eating a goat. Malcolm says this is the goat version of Bambi. No one wants to kill the goat except Sandra. Varner says he wants to let them go. They decide instead to eat the chickens and they let the goats go. Immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge, three members of each tribe will be tied together. On Jeff’s go, they’ll work together to get through a series of obstacles. They’ll then grab a bucket, fill it with water, make their way over a giant teeter-totter transferring the water until they have enough to lower the gate. The three remaining tribe members will then work together to solve a puzzle. First two tribes to finish win immunity, safe from the vote. Losers go to tribal council where the third person will be voted out of the game. In addition, they are playing for reward which is a tarp for first place, plus their choice of pillows or seasonings and sauces, and second place gets whatever is left over. Troyzan will work on the puzzle and he’s nervous about grabbing the idol. Jeff gives the go to start. Michaela is dragging JT and Malcolm. Tavua is behind. Nuku has their bucket. Tavua now has their bucket shortly after. Nuku pours their first bucket and go back. Mana gets their bucket untied. Nuku makes their second trip and the gate drops. Nuku starts on their puzzle. Tavua is second to drop their gate with Mana immediately after. Nuku has their puzzle pieces untied. Mana has theirs untied. Jeff says Troyzan was the slowest, but he finally has his done. Everyone is on the puzzle. Nuku thinks they have it and they do. Tavua thinks they have it and they do not. They rearrange and they do have it this time. Nuku came in first and Tavua in second. Mana will go to tribal council. Troyzan goes to the table and kneels down likes he’s grateful for the win. He grabs the idol and slides it into his pants. Nuku wins the tarp and they choose the pillows and blankets for their reward. Tavua wins the spices and sauces. Debbie says in this game, it’s all about numbers and they will decide whether it will be Caleb or Hali and she thinks they’ll be rock solid sticking together. Mana comes back from camp and Hali says it will be a miracle if she makes it through the night. Caleb says this is the point last time where he was life lined out and he hopes they want to keep the tribe strong and give him new life. Sierra is concerned about an underlying alliance with Tai and Caleb. Culpepper tries to talk Tai into voting out Caleb. Culpepper says going into a merge with Caleb is very dangerous and he asks Tai who he’s playing for, himself or Caleb. Tai agrees but he feels bad. It’s time for Tribal Council and Jeff has those who haven’t been there yet to get fire. Jeff asks Debbie if it’s comforting that her, Tai, and Caleb are all there playing together or if it’s unnerving. Debbie says it’s unnerving because they are perceived to be a trio. Jeff asks Tai if he felt that and he says definitely. Jeff asks Caleb if he feels the pressure as well if they’re making assumptions. Caleb says yeah but we didn’t start the game together. Culpepper says they did bond pretty well on the Nuku tribe. Sierra says her and Hali had no relationship from their season, but it’s different than the other three. Jeff asks Tai how he’s weighing the decision and is it the next challenge, the merge, or the end game. Tai says that’s what he has to decide. It’s time to vote. Jeff goes to tally the votes. If anyone has an immunity idol and wants to play it, now is the time to do so. Jeff reads the votes. First vote, Caleb. Hali. Caleb. Caleb. Third person voted out is Caleb. Caleb gives Tai a kiss on the head and gets his torch. Jeff says every time you vote somebody out, you change the dynamics of the tribe and the question is always the same: Who does it benefit, who does it hurt?
  5. Tonight, the coaches will complete their teams. And we will get a special peek at the knockouts, with four of the biggest advisors we’ve ever had: John Legend, Luke Bryan, DJ Khaled, and Celine Dion. The biggest night of the season yet starts now! Our first artist of the night Vanessa Ferguson from Greensboro, NC. She sings Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers. Alicia and Gwen push their buttons. Blake pushes shortly after. Blake says when Vanessa stepped out there and held that note out he knew she had a great voice. Alicia says she loved the song voice and that Vanessa put her spin on it. Gwen says she felt like Vanessa had a lot of confidence and she wants to discover more about Vanessa. Vanessa selects team…Alicia. The next artist is Dawson Coyle from Williamstown, New Jersey. He has decided to sing the song Happiness by Need to Breathe. Blake presses his button at the end. Blake says his favorite thing about his voice is how much emotion he pours into the performance. Team Blake is full! The next artist to take the stage is Jozy Bernadette from Grand Forks, North Dakota. She has chosen the song American Woman by The Who. Adam presses his button towards the end and Gwen hits at the last second. Adam says Jozy has an incredible voice. Gwen says she thinks there are things they can work on to help her stand out and she’d love to help Jozy do that. Jozy picks as her coach…Gwen. Next up is Stephen Bores from Arlington, Illinois. For his audition he’s going to sing Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. He does not get any chairs to turn. Alicia says he has a beautiful attitude and she would have liked to have heard more tension. Adam thought he was good but it may have added pressure that he performed a song that is so iconic and means so much to people. Sheena Brook from Ft. Myers Beach, Florida is the next artist to perform. She is going to sing Baby Girl by Sugarland. Adam presses his button. Adam says he wants nothing more than to show Blake he can take a country singer to the top, and Sheena could very easily be the one. Team Adam is full! With only one spot left this season, Alicia is feeling the pressure to find the perfect singer to complete her team. These next artists weren’t quite what she was looking for. Meshale Akopian sang Me and Bobby McGee, Jacob Westfall sang Bad Blood, and Lyndsey Highlander sang Bring on the Rain. Let’s see if our next artist has what Alicia is looking for. Next to take the stage is Chris Blue from Knoxville, Tennessee. He has decided to sing The Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Alicia gladly hits her button. Alicia says she was looking for a male voice who was bluesy and soulful. Team Alicia is full! Team Blake has: Lauren Duski, Brennley Brown, Aliyah Moulden, Ashley Levin, Casi Joy, Micah Tryba, Josh Hoyer, Enid Ortiz, TSoul, Andrea Thomas, Valerie Ponzio, and Dawson Coyle.

  6. Tonight, the final week of blind auditions begins. Adam begins the night with 9 artists, Alicia and Gwen each have 8, and Blake has 8. There will be no rules, no mercy, and no limits as the judges fight to complete their teams. The final week of auditions kicks off right now! As our coaches head to their chairs, let’s meet our first artist Kenny P, who is from Cleveland, Ohio but moved to Nashville. He has chosen the song Hello, It’s Me by Todd Rundgren. Gwen hits her button over halfway through the song. Blake also hits his button towards the end. Blake says the way he’s able to attack those notes with so much power he didn’t need the microphone. Gwen asks why Nashville and Kenny says he was doing alright in Cleveland but wanted to go where the people were. He says he does more country music than he used to and Gwen says her too. She says there’s something theatrical about him and she’d love to work with him. Kenny chooses to go with team…Gwen. Let’s check in with our next artist, Enid Ortiz from Tampa, Florida. She is singing All I Ask by Adele. Blake hits his button at the last minute. The other judges are calling foul and Blake goes up to give Enid a hug. Blake says welcome to my team. We caught up with our next artist RJ Collins in Chicago, Illinois. He has chosen the song Purpose by Justin Bieber. Adam pushes his button very quickly. Alicia also pushes her button a little over halfway through the song. Adam says some voices you just know can take the world by storm and he can win the voice. Alicia says she’s been waiting because she’s wanted to feel something and his voice came through. It’s time for RJ to pick a coach and he picks…Alicia. Our next artist is Austin Tyler Jones from Columbia, Tennessee. He has selected the song Alison by Elvis Costello. He does not get any button pushes. Blake says he thought Austin was a really great singer, but the performance seemed a little laid back. Adam says it was good, but their teams are starting to fill up so they are being extra picky. The next artist to take the stage is TSoul from Richmond, Virginia. He is going to sing Take Me to the River by Al Green. Adam presses his button very quickly and Blake turns right after. Adam says TSoul is a special man and he can win this thing. Blake says TSoul’s voice is like a 50 year old and it has all the herbs and spices. TSould decides he’ll be a better fit on team…Blake. As the night went on Blake added a former Carrie Underwood back-up singer named Andrea Thomas who sang Baby, Now That I’ve Found You. Gwen added Davina Leone who sang Cheap Thrills by Sia. Let’s see if the next artist has what it takes to make a team. Her name is Hanna Eyre from Laguna Niguel, California. She has chosen the song Blank Space by Taylor Swift. Adam presses his button. Blake his button late in the song, followed by Gwen. Adam says the second he turned around she started smiling, but got it back together and finished strong. Adam says he is blown away. Gwen says Hanna is exactly what she was looking for and she wants to share her experiences with her. Blake says Hanna has an approach he hadn’t heard before and she has so much range. Hanna is decided to pick as her coach…Adam. Our next artist is Casey Jamerson from Pendleton, Indiana. She is singing Shadows of the Night by Pat Benatar. She did not get any chairs to turn. Adam says she had an amazing power to her voice. Gwen says she regrets not turning and wishes she could have seen the performance. Gwen tells her to come back. The next artist is Hunter Plake from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is going to sing Carry On by Fun. Gwen turns around quickly. Alicia hit her button towards the end. Alicia says she heard immediately from his tone, falsetto, and chest voice was unique and something she doesn’t have on her team. Gwen says he is so gifted and his voice connected emotionally and she’d love to work with him. Hunter selects as his coach…Alicia. The next artist to take the stage is Nala Price from Sebring, Florida. She has selected the song Send My Love (To Your New Lover) by Adele. Adam and Gwen both push early. Adam says when Nala did her falsetto it showed how much control she has. Gwen says she took it on her as her own and she understood the lyric of it. Nala decides she wants to be on team…Adam. Next up is Sammie Zonana from Austin, Texas. She sings a slower version of Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Gwen turns around. Adam says he heard so much Gwen in her voice. Alicia says there is a huskiness to her voice. Gwen says welcome to team Gwen. She loved that Sammie was so relaxed and emotion and she felt like she could relate to that. Our last artist of the night is Valerie Ponzio from El Paso, Texas. She has chosen a non-traditional version of the song Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. Gwen is the first to turn. Alicia turns about halfway through. Adam pushes towards the end and Blake hits right at the end. Adam says he heard a little of each coach in her voice and she is the most well rounded singer he’s ever heard. Gwen says she is obsessed with her and would love to work with her and gives her a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Alicia says she would love to help her and would love to be her coach. Blake says she has an incredible voice and he thinks he can help her. Valerie picks as her coach…Blake.
  7. 20 of the biggest game changers are back to battle it out in Fiji as Survivor kicks off its 500th episode. This is Survivor: Game Changers. 39 days, 20 people, 1 survivor! Jeff comes on to the ship with the 20 survivors and welcomes them to the 34th season. He says they were each hand-picked because they have proven they will make moves to change the game. He asks Ozzy how much time, when he’s not playing survivor, is spent thinking about the mistakes he’s made. He then asks JT if it matters there are a handful of winners there. JT points out Sandra is the only two-time winner. He asks Zeke if he feels pressure because he’s with a group of people who know how to play survivor. Those with an orange buff are Hali, Caleb, Troyzan, Sandra, Aubry, Tony, Michaela, Varner, Ciera, and Malcolm are the Mana tribe. Those with the blue buffs are Debbie, Tai, Andrea, Cirie, Culpepper, Sierra, Sarah, JT, Ozzy, and Zeke and are the Nuku tribe. This season maybe more than any other you’re going to have be more aware and be willing to do anything to anybody to move you forward in the game. The boat is loaded with supplies and they will want to grab everything they can to take with them. This is the way they started the very first season of Survivor. With one game changing twist. There is a life saver in the water. On either side of the ring there are two sets of color coded ropes. The first person to untie their knots, they will untie a massive tool kit for their tribe. It’s their first advantage in the game. Survivor: Game Changers is on! Ozzy is first in the water to go after the tool kit. Malcolm says Ozzy is here, no one is getting that tool kit. Andrea picks up a burlap bag and underneath is a secret advantage, but she doesn’t see it and steps over it. A few minutes later Sierra sees it and picks it up and hides it in her waist band. People are stealing items and Jeff says that’s what you can expect on a season called Game Changers. Ozzy gets the tool kit untied and everyone is getting in the water with their items. Jeff says this is a massive head start for one tribe. For one of them, it’s another chance at a million dollars. Good luck! We are with the Mana tribe and they are carrying their things in and hugging each other. Michaela thinks her best chance to win is to schmooze everyone. They start gathering bamboo and Tony says he’s out and going to look for the idol. Malcolm sends Caleb and Sandra to watch Tony so they at least know if he gets it. Tony can’t believe he isn’t being followed and he said he was going to say he was just joking with them. Sandra says it’s not smart to take Tony out so early. Caleb says he has high spirits and stirring up trouble, but that’s just Tony. We move to the Nuku tribe and them arriving at camp. Zeke says he has the greatest tribe ever with Cirie, Ozzy, and JT. Zeke wants to get his hands dirty and lather himself in the blood of his enemies. They see some goats and they are trying to figure out if they can get them. Sarah says she’s going to be the silent assassin. Sierra opens the advantage and it’s the legacy advantage. She’s guaranteed immunity but she can only use it when there are 13 people left in the game or 6 people left in the game and if she’s voted out she must will it to another player in any tribe. Culpepper wants people to come to him this time instead of playing aggressive. Sierra talks to Culpepper and then Ozzy. Ozzy says the competition is fierce and big moves always require big risks. Ozzy tells Sierra says he’s a little scared of Cirie because they played together and she helped get him out. He says this time around he needs to be the master of blindsides and Cirie is his first target. Cirie tells us she knew it was a problem when Ozzy was on her tribe. She asks him if they are good or if they are coming in with baggage. She says it felt like they were solid so maybe everyone will remain calm. Ozzy tells Tai and JT that Cirie is not a physical player. Tai says he likes Cirie and he doesn’t want to get caught in the middle. Tai talks to Cirie about Ozzy and tells her she needs to work it out with him. Cirie immediately questions Tai and realizes her and Ozzy don’t have a clean slate after all. Back at Mana Tony says he’s going to get water and asks if anyone needs water. Tony says they have all played before so while everyone is talking Tony goes to build himself a “bunker”. He says he has what it takes to win the game, adaptability. He says if they get fooled again, shame on then. Troyzan comes around and catches him digging and says Tony has a guilty face. Troyzan tells Malcolm he caught Tony digging and doesn’t know if he found something or not. The rumor quickly spreads to Hali and she shared it with some of the women. Ciera says she knows Tony played once and won and so he’s coming in arrogant and she can’t wait to teach him a lesson. She suggests they get rid of Tony first, or split the votes and get rid of Caleb. Varner says it might not be good to get rid of Caleb because they need him because he’s strong. Malcolm doesn’t want them to go at all, and he’s suspicious of Ciera because she’s the one tossing names out. It’s time for our first immunity challenge. For today’s challenge, they are going to race to a raft and row out to a platform. One person will then swim out to retrieve a set of keys. They will all then make their way over a series of obstacles back to the beach where they’ll dig up two bags of puzzle pieces. They’ll then use the keys to unlock a chest which will release a third bag of puzzle pieces. They’ll use the pieces inside the bag to solve a ship’s wheel puzzle. First tribe to solve their puzzle and raise their flag wins immunity. He reveals the immunity idol which looks like scuba headgear. There is another twist this season. If there is a tie at tribal council, there will be NO revote. They will immediately go to a tie breaker. That means if there is a tie there will be an open discussion in front of everybody. If they can unanimously agree which of the tribe members should go home, then they go home. But if they can’t unanimously agree, the members who received votes will become safe and everyone else draws rocks and someone else goes home. Jeff asks how that changes thing and Andrea says it makes splitting the vote much riskier. Alright, here we go for immunity and Jeff tells them to go. Both teams are close but Nuku is a shade ahead. Ozzy is the first in the water for Nuku and Hali is in the water for Mana. Ozzy gets his untied first and he heads back. Hali is not far behind. Ozzy gets back first and Nuku is the first to begin the obstacles. Hali gets back and Mana can begin their obstacles. Nuku is the first back to the beach and Culpepper and JT start digging. Mana is back and Tony and Malcolm are digging. JT found the first bag for Nuku and they find their second. Caleb found the first bag for Mana and Malcolm comes to help Tony and they find the second. Debbie is working on her lock and struggling. Varner unlocks two of their locks and passes Debbie. Debbie finally gets hers and gets them unlocked and Nuku is back in the lead. Cirie and Zeke are working on the puzzle for the Nuku. Varner quickly finishes his chest and Sierra and Sandra begin working on the puzzle for Mana. Both teams have their first section. Zeke and Cirie think they have it, but it doesn’t fit. Sandra and Sierra think they have it, but they aren’t done. Zeke and Cirie get the second part done. Sandra and Sierra don’t have it and Cirie and Zeke are done. Nuku has won immunity. Mana is back at camp and Varner says losing the first challenge is nothing new to him because it’s happened every time he’s played. Varner does not want to vote out Tony yet. Malcolm tells Tony and Caleb that Ciera has already thrown their names out. Varner says when you talk about game changers, Ciera has voted out her mom. Malcolm, Caleb, Tony, Varner, and Aubry are all at the water hole and talking when Ciera comes in. They suggest to Ciera to vote out Michaela out. Michaela asks Tony and Caleb who Ciera thinks is going home and Tony tells her it’s her. Michaela isn’t happy about that and she realizes she reacted wrong. Tony says she’s scary and he tells Malcolm Michaela is freaking out. Sandra says if push comes to shove they can take Ciera out any time. It’s time for tribal council and they all get their torches and get fire. Jeff asks Tony when they have a season called game changers, there’s a bit of expectation. Tony says yeah it is, and when he was racing around they all slowed him down. Jeff asks Malcolm if he seen that. Malcolm says yes, Tony was literally running around. Jeff asks Aubry asks how big a part impressions from the past will play in the game. Aubry says they look each other and try to decide if they’re the same they saw on TV or if they are a little different. Jeff says to Caleb that he’s in a different position strategically because he really didn’t get a chance to play and show them. Caleb says yeah honestly, it can help him because they don’t know what he’s capable of but on the other side it could frighten them a little bit. Jeff says Michaela what impression do you think they have of you out of the gate. She says she hopes she made a good impression, but she’s not playing with people who want to be her best friend and somebody’s got to go and it would be kind of punkish on a season called game changers to be too easy of one. Jeff says Sandra that is the kind of answer a very experienced player gives. Sandra says yes, Michaela has been a pleasure, the group loves her. Jeff says if it was going to be an easy vote wouldn’t you be the vote, a two-time winner? Sandra says everyone loves her, what can she say? She’s a perfect person to go to the end with because who will give her another million dollars and these people are playing for the second, third, and fourth time, how many times do they have to play to get the million dollars? She says if you’re going to do it, do it now and do it with Sandra. Everyone laughs. Jeff asks Varner what happened today when they got back from the immunity challenge. Varner says a group took off to the well to talk about what they wanted to do, and then someone comes along and then you see another group take off down the beach. He says it’s very unsettling. Jeff asks Hali what the criteria would be for tonight’s vote. Hali says tonight’s vote has two components. They have challenges and weakness they are concerned about and also people got their feather’s ruffled by talk that went around and loose lips sink ships and that’s part of it too. Jeff asks Ciera why the big reaction and she says she wasn’t sure if Hali was talking about her with the loose lips comment and she wonders if she’s in the majority, but she’s going to stick with the plan and vote what she believes is the majority. Jeff asks Michaela if she’s nervous that it might be her. Michaela says she’ll be surprised if she gets out of there without at least one vote against her. Jeff asks Sandra if she had to put a title on the first three days what would you call it. Sandra says the unknown. Jeff says alright, it is time to vote. We see Ciera write Michaela’s name and Michaela writes Ciera’s name. Jeff will tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and wants to play it now would be the time to do so. Time to read the votes. First vote, Michaela. Ciera. Cierra. Cierra. Ciera. Ciera. That’s five votes Ciera. First person voted out of Survivor: Game Changers is Ciera. Ciera the tribe has spoken. She wishes them luck. Jeff says well no matter how much the game evolves, one thing remains true: blindsides never goes out of style. The next day they are back at Mana camp. Tony says he’s bored and tired of sitting back and he wants to get into gear and he wants to make some moves. He talks to Aubry at the well. Aubry wants to play with people are threats. They think Malcolm and Caleb and Sandra. Tony has the same strategy to keep the threats. Sandra says the only way a winner can win is if they sit next to a winner in the finals. Tony pitches to Sandra and she’s in, because as long as it’s not her she doesn’t care who goes. We visit the Nuku tribe and they are getting up and we Tai taking care of the chickens. JT is scraping corn off a cob and Tai tells him not to get it all so they can feed the chickens the corn. JT says this is a game where everything you do could put a target on you. It’s night time at Mana and everyone is laying down…except Tony. Tony goes to finish his spy bunker so he can get control of the game. He digs and covers himself and he hides to listen as Sandra and Troyzan come up and start talking. Tony says he hears his name and he confront them and he catches them in a lie. Tony says he wanted to work with Sandra but if she’s going to sneak around then he will have to get rid of her. Sandra says she thought she was aligned with him but he questioned her like the fuzz do and she doesn’t want to do that again. She says Tony needs to go home. Back at Nuku they are laying around and chatting. JT and Ozzy are talking that they feel strong. Cirie sees them talking and she says knows Ozzy is coming for her. She needs to weed out who she can play with. Cirie talks to Sarah and tries to make an alliance but Sarah says her word is not her bond this time and if Cirie has to go then she’s ok with it. Cirie then talks to Zeke and wants to work with him but Zeke says he wants to work with her but Cirie is arguably the most dangerous player in the game. Cirie then talks to Debbie with the same pitch trying to get an alliance going. Debbie says she doesn’t trust Cirie and doesn’t think Cirie is being truthful for her. Sandra comes down to wash a pot and Hali is there and Sandra fills her in on Tony’s alliance of five. Sandra says you know the saying the king is only the king until the queen arrives? She says she’s here and she was born to play this game. Sandra also talks to Troyzan and he talks to Michaela. Troyzan says he thinks Varner is with them too. Varner says Sandra created an alliance of five in 15 minutes. He says that’s scary, she knows what she’s doing and she’s won twice for a reason. He says when two winners go at each other, it gets ugly fast. He can’t wait to see the fireworks. Aubry is talking to Tony and he fills her in on his mistrust of Sandra. Tony says he doesn’t like what’s brewing and he has to put a stop to it. Tony doesn’t mind snake, but weasels he’s not too fond of. Tony goes to talk to Malcolm and Malcolm says he’s all about strength and he doesn’t want Sandra to mobilize her forces. Tony talks to Caleb and he wants the tribe to stay strong too. Caleb says he can’t trust either Tony or Sandra, but he feels he can trust Tony more than Sandra. Caleb says playing with Tony is dangerous, but they have to keep the tribe strong. Nuku getting their first look at the Mana tribe. Immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge, six members of each tribe are going to race out into the ocean, across a balance beam, to a cage where they’ll crawl up and over the cage and untie a very long and very heavy snake. They’ll push it back up over the cage, race back to the shore, put the snake in its cradle where the three remaining tribe members will until tiles, which they’ll use to solve a combination lock that will release a series of rings they’ll attempt to land on a target which will flip up to spell immunity. The first tribe to spell immunity is immune and the loser will go to tribal council. They are also playing a fishing kit. Nuku is sitting Cirie out. Both tribes are neck and neck, but they can’t go over the cage until everyone is at the cage. Nuku is a shade ahead of Mana. Varner is hanging on to the cage and trying to direct the tribe. Nuku already has their snake untied. Nuku lifting the snake, and it’s very heavy. Jeff says it weighs 400 pounds. Nuku is working together to get the snake over. Mana is still trying to untie their snake. Nuku has their snake out and they all go over. Mana has their snake untied. Caleb and Tony working together to get the snake up and over. Varner is struggling, he says he doesn’t have the strength. Mana finally has their snake out. Nuku has their snake in the cradle. JT, Ciera, and Debbie have the number tiles for Nuku. Mana drops their snake in the water off the balance beam. Debbie has her number tiles and she’s working on the combination. Mana drops their snake again. Debbie releases the combination lock and has the rings. Sierra has the rings and has the first letter. Troyzan falls off the beam and has to go back. JT has the second and third letters. Sierra has the fourth letter. Mana is just now getting back with their snake and putting it on the cradle. Sandra, Michaela, and Malcolm are working on the knots and getting their numbered tiles. Malcolm is working on the combination lock. Sierra has the fifth letter. Malcolm has the chest unlocked and starts tossing and has the first letter. JT gets the sixth letter. Malcolm has the second and third letters. Malcolm then gets the fourth letter, fifth, and sixth letters. It’s tied six to six. JT gets the seventh letter. Michaela asks if Malcolm needs a break and he declines. JT hits the last letter and Nuku wins immunity. Back at camp they talk about the challenge and their struggles with the snake. Michaela says the challenge was deplorable and it’s frustrating because she’s a strong player. Tony leaves and as soon as he does Sandra says Tony has to go. Sandra is worried about an idol and is afraid they have to split votes. Hali and Troyzan and Sandra approach Caleb about voting Tony out. Tony comes up and Sandra throws Aubry’s name out. Tony says he doesn’t want that because Sandra will have numbers so he has to be a big move. Tony talks to Caleb and says she’s dangerous. Caleb realizes they need one more person to have numbers and Tony says go after Michaela and flip her. Caleb talks to Michaela and Varner and talks to them about keeping the tribe strong. Michaela knows Tony is a threat, but she doesn’t want to keep losing challenges. Varner says he’s in heaven seeing this going on. Time for tribal council. Jeff asks Tony about having back to back losses. Tony says they went into the challenge feeling strong, but they aren’t giving up. Jeff asks Malcolm if the strong people should feel safer. Malcolm says yes because if they don’t have strong people, they will have problems moving forward. Jeff asks Michaela what she was thinking when Malcolm threw ring after ring and she says she’s in the game because she’s a strong physical player. She says it doesn’t make sense to send strong physical players home right now. Sandra says now she is scared and Jeff asks what she means. Sandra says if they’re saying a weak player then maybe she should be afraid, but if you look back and put the strongest players in the right position, they could still come out behind. So what does it mean to be physical right now? Jeff says Troyzan it’s tricky and Troyzan says yeah we’ll be 50% less paranoid after the vote. Tony brings up to Jeff about the Sandra and Troyzan sneaking off. Jeff says going back to Sandra’s point in his season Tony lead the decisions and are they expecting him to be that guy. Tony says he doesn’t know about the leading part but he knows about the lying and the dishonesty, but that’s not the game he’s playing. Varner says he believes Tony. Caleb also believes him and Malcolm nods too. Jeff asks Varner what is his play right now and Varner says we are a round hole right now and it’s time to get rid of our square peg. Jeff says wow, Tony, what do you think that means. Tony says I’m not sure. Sandra says he hopes he’s not the square peg and they all chuckle. It’s time to vote. We see Sandra vote for Aubry. It’s time to tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and wants to play now is the time to do so. Time to read the votes. Aubry is the first vote. Tony, Aubry, Tony, Tony, Tony. Second person voted out of Survivor game changers is Tony. Tony says the sheep being lead to the slaughter. Sandra says that’s what you get for plotting against me. Tony, the tribe has spoken. Jeff says it’s interesting that both votes have been decided by the group which means it’s only a matter of time before the finger is pointed at you.

Lauryn has chosen the song Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. Gwen and Alicia push together, with Blake right after.

Alicia is off to a strong start with 5 artists, Adam picked up 4 artists, Blake landed 5 artists, and Gwen scored 4 artists. It all starts now! First up is Micah Tryba from Wheaton, Illinois. She has chosen the song I’m Every Woman by Chaka Khan. Blake is the first to push and Gwen considers then finally pushes. Blake says hopefully she’ll chose him and he can get her to the finale. Gwen says her intuition and control of her voice were sensitive and she’d love to work with Micah. Micah picks for her coach…Blake. Let’s meet our next artist, Troy Ramey from Sea Cliff, New York. He selected the song Wild World by Cat Stevens. Blake turns quickly. Adam turns as Troy goes into the chorus. Gwen also turns a few moments later. Alicia hits her button towards the end. Adam says he had naturally good temperament and he showed all of them he’s a major contender to win this thing. Gwen says what made her turn was his attention to lyric like it was his song. Alicia says he has lifetimes in his voice and it has all the greats rolled up into it at once and he’s super cool. Blake wants to meet Troy’s mom and he tells her that Troy is extremely talented. Blake says he sings like a man and he hit his button because of the strength of his voice. Troy decides for his coach…Gwen. The next artist to take the stage is Ericka Corban from Aberdeen, Washington. She is going to sing Wade in the Water by Eva Cassidy. She did not get a chair turn. Adam says there were some things control wise that made him think too much. Alicia says she was really special and she loved her lower register and she wish she had seen her upper register. Next is Jack Cassidy from Westlake Village, California. He’s from the Cassidy family, his uncles are David and Shaun Cassidy and his grandmother is Shirley Jones. He has chosen the song One of Us by Joan Osborne. Adam turns as he’s getting to the chorus. Alicia turns towards the end of the song. Adam says there is a passionate commitment to every word he sang. Alicia says it’s the first time she seen someone choose to just play the piano and sing. Jack selects…Alicia. Our next artist is Kawan DuBose from Miami, Florida. He’s going to sing Let’s Get it On by Marvin Gaye. Adam pushes with Blake not far behind. Gwen pushes a few moments later. Gwen says he is so gifted, amazing. Adam says Kawan rendered him speechless and the only person who has the same range and can go into falsetto like that is Prince. Adam says Kawan will be the number one priority on team Adam. Gwen thinks it would be fun to work together so she can share some of her experiences and collaborate together. Alicia says his voice his crazy and she concurs with Adam that there’s a special place on his team for Kawan. Blake says Kawan just lit the place up and it’s so much fun to watch how much personality he has on stage. Adam says he feels inspired by Kawan. Kawan decides to go with team…Adam. Next up is Taylor Alexander from Flowery Branch, Georgia. His song selection is Believe by Cher. Adam turned before he hits the chorus. Adam says that was the single craziest thing he ever heard.

  12. It’s time for Season 12 of The Voice. Taking the coach’s chairs this season, together for the first time is: Gwen Stefani, who is inspired and glad to be back; Adam Levine who says it’s an honor to be there; Alicia Keys who says it feels really good to be back and her inner competitive nature is alive and well; and Blake Shelton who says the other coaches will gang up on him because he’s a five time winner. Season 12 of The Voice starts right now! It's time for the blind auditions. Each artist will sing their song and hope one of the four coaches turns their chair. If one coach turns, the artist is on their team. However, if more than one coach turns, then the tables are turned and the real battle begins as the coaches fight for the artist to choose their team. There's no depth to which a coach will not descend to score the artist they think could win The Voice! The first artist of the season is Joshua Hunter from Albany, Georgia. His stage name is Jchosen, because feels like he was chosen to do music. He takes the stage and sings Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye. Adam quickly pushes his button and turns. Alicia turns a few seconds later. Gwen and Blake look at each other and Blake pushes the button with Gwen shortly behind. All coaches give a standing ovation and Adam goes up to give him a hug. Adam says if there is nothing he can say to unlock in Jchosen that he’s the coach for him, then he won’t be able to sleep tonight. Blake says every note is pitch perfect and he had Alicia embarrassed. Alicia says Marvin Gaye is in heaven giving a standing ovation and she congratulates him and says it’s a blessing. Gwen says what she heard was instinctual and it was true talent, and she’s excited for him whoever he chooses. Adam says if he gets chosen he can give a mans perspective as he navigates through the season. Gwen says she can give the perspective from both views, as a female and because she was in a band with male members. It’s time to select his coach. Jchosen selects…Gwen. Gwen is shocked that she was selected. As Jchosen heads to the back Gwen stops him and gives him a hat that says #TeamGwen. Season 12 is just getting started. The next artist is Lauren Duski from Gaylord, Mi. She comes from a family of dentists and no one in her family sings but her. She sings country but she would like to work with Gwen Stefani because it would broaden her scope of music. She’s going to sing You Were Meant For Me by Jewel. She sings a slightly slower version and gets a quick button push from Adam. Blake and Gwen push a minute later back to back. Adam says he never heard someone do that song on the show and she took it to a new place and he thinks it would be refreshing for someone like her to win. Gwen says she was blown away because she doesn’t often hear singers use every part of their voice. Blake says she’s somebody who can clearly win this thing and he wants to work with people who can go on to be a star. Adam asks her what she wants to do and she answers she has always done country but she sings anything that moves her. Adam asks her to keep him in mind when she makes her choice and Gwen talks about having done duets with Adam and Blake. Alicia asks who she picks as her coach. Lauren chooses…Blake. The next artist is a familiar face. It’s Johnny Hayes who auditioned last season and says he took away a lot of great advice. He works with his dad doing landscaping. He will be singing Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding. Adam and Gwen both turn quickly. Adam stands up before he finishes and is excited Alicia and Blake didn’t turn. Adam says singing Otis is not something you can get away with, but he did it right. Adam says don’t let Gwen use her thing with Blake to influence him. Blake says it didn’t take Gwen twice to hear him to push for him. Gwen says he delivered a performance from his heart and that’s what he cares about. Blake says he sees two people in the room who’ve made a comeback, one is Johnny and the other is Gwen. Alicia asks who he picks. Johnny decides…Adam is the coach for him. Let’s meet the next artist. Next is Skyler Harris from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She’s a police officer, but music is her dream. She thinks all the coaches are great, but if Alicia Keys turns for her she will lose it. She sings One and Only by Adele. Alicia looked like she wanted to turn, but none of the coaches pushed their button. Alicia says there is no denying she has an incredible voice and wants to know more about her. Alicia says she felt the power when Skyler sang, but she didn’t get to feel the vulnerability. Blake says she’s probably one that’s frustrated they didn’t turn for and he tells her to come back. Next is Anatalia Villaranda from Temecula, California. She’s very short and had been in a group that was close to a record, but they fell apart. She’s singing Runaway Baby by Bruno Mars. The coaches look at each other and Blake mouths “Wow”. Alicia and Blake finally hit together. Adam and Gwen both push at the end as well. Alicia says she has a big voice. Alicia says her family is amazing and Blake says he needs to see this and asks for them to come out. Blake says a lot of people turn that energy into a trainwreck, but she kept at it until someone turned around. Alicia says she’s more than just a voice, but an artist unafraid to express herself. Gwen says she relates to the energy to get everyone going and she feels passionate about her and her positivity. Adam says the greatness she has is something they can’t teach, but he believes she could win the entire thing. Anatalia picks as her coach…Alicia. Next is Stephanie Rice from Texarkana, Texas. She has a degree in biology and does research. She is going to sing Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson. Blake turns very quickly. Gwen pushes a few seconds later. Gwen says Stephanie, Stefani. She says she was moved by her and could hear how much pain was there. She says she feels like she was there to work with Stephanie and would love to work with her. Alicia says she feels like the passion coming from Gwen was so sincere and it was a beautiful moment. Adam says he noticed the same thing. Blake says it’s 3 against 1, but the way she sang that song was like she wrote it. Blake says he would love to work with her, but she probably already made his decision and he’s good with it. Blake says he’d freak out if she picked him. Stephanie chooses…Gwen. Let’s meet the next artist. Branden Martin is from Owingsville, Kentucky. He works on a farm and plays with a band. He sings Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) by Travis Tritt. None of the coaches turn. Adam says Branden is so country he makes Blake look like he’s not country. Blake says when he hit the growl, it was so good, but some of his pitch went sharp and it made him hesitate to hit his button. Adam says if he could have delivered with more conviction it would have made a difference and advised him to come back again. Next is Mark Isaiah from Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania. He sings Mercy by Shawn Mendes. Adam and Gwen push together. They give him a standing ovation. Gwen says he sounds very current and she would love to have him on her team. Alicia says his voice is great. Blake says he should be on Gwen’s team. Adam says he belongs in the current landscape of pop music and he’s the best choice for Mark. He selects for his coach…Adam. Up next is Brennley Brown from Apple Valley, California, and she is 14. She sings Stupid Boy by Keith Urban. Alicia and Blake both turn towards the end of the song. Alicia says she’s not afraid to fight. Blake tells Alicia who sang the song and then who wrote it and says he doesn’t see anyone else who can help her make her mark on country music. Alicia says she understands how hard it is as a young woman artist and she thinks of country and soul music as sisters. Alicia says she doesn’t want Brennley to be stuck in a box. Brennley picks as her coach…Blake. Shaun Chrisjohn is next from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He’s a caretaker for his grandmother. He sings You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne. He did not get a chair turn. Alicia says it was great and he has a beautiful voice. Blake says he was on the edge of his seat but some of his transitions kept him from pressing his button. Alicia says he was really good, but she was looking for a real emotional connection. Carson is on his way to visit Felicia Temple in Teaneck, New Jersey who is a registered nurse. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, but she’s free and clear now and she wants to start a new chapter and pursue her dream. She sings All I Could Do Was Cry by Etta James. Alicia pushes halfway through. Blake and Gwen both press at the end. Felicia says she was Felicia Keys because she played all of Alicia’s songs at the talent shows. Blake tells Gwen they should just turn back around. Gwen says she isn’t giving up. Adam wants to hear Alicia and Felicia do a duet together. They sing Alicia’s song Fallin’. Adam says Felicia who do you pick as your coach and Alicia says they didn’t get to say anything. Adam says they don’t need to, say it loud and say it proud. Felicia selects Alicia as her coach.
  13. Hello Survivor fans! They are live behind the scenes with the cast of Survivor 33. Jeff says they’ve given them a great season of game play, including great tribal councils and blind sides. They are going to show us what they are doing for the next season of Survivor and show us who will be playing. 6 people left, 3 millenials, 3 gen-x and any one of them could win. For 35 days, it has been a battle between clashing cultures, Millenials vs Gen-X. Two groups with two different approaches to life. It was clear this would be a season unlike any other. At tribal council, the game play was intense leading to an epic rock draw and a string of devastating blind sides. Only six remain, three Millenials and 3 Gen-X. Adam, this survivor superfan has won challenges, found an idol and a reward steal. The only thing left to do is win for his mom. Jay, since the merge he’s managed to avoid the vote. Now without an idol to protect him, he is vulnerable. Can he win his way to the end, or will he finally have his torch snuffed. Hannah, early in the game she suffered a panic attack merely watching a challenge, but she has matured into a dangerous player. If she makes it to the end will her resume be strong enough to convince a jury. Brett, the likeable Boston police sergeant. His game is focused on relationships and he has a lot of friends on the jury. If he could survive the last three votes, it could be worth one million dollars. Ken, a single father playing for his daughter and with the legacy advantage in his pocket, he has at least one edge on everyone else. Ken has never strayed from his alliance from David, but will being loyal pay off in the end. David, a self-described fearful neurotic oddball has transformed into a strategic powerhouse. Ironically, his impressive game play is now his biggest obstacle. Who will have what it takes to outwit, outlast, and outplay all the rest to win the million dollars and the title of sole survivor? We’re back after tribal council and they are talking about flushing out Jay’s idol. He says he has to go around tomorrow and search for a new one. Brett says tribal council was horrible and he can’t believe they didn’t take David out when they had the chance. Brett says he’s working with morons because Jay or David are going to win this thing if they don’t vote them out. David is surprised he survived another vote. He says he needs to create chaos and he’s been stealing beads and he’s making a fake immunity idol. He says he has to do everything he can to end up in the final three. He hides the fake idol in a coconut in hopes someone else will find it. Jay is out looking for an idol and Ken walks up with David. They are walking back and Jay sees the coconut and David is smiling and thinks Jay seen it. Jay goes back and finds the idol David hid. He says he had a train of losers following him and they didn’t even see it. Ken gets to open his legacy advantage. The advantage guarantees him immunity at the next tribal council. He is not going to tell anyone about until tribal council. We get to the immunity challenge and Jeff takes immunity back from Ken. Immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge they are going to race through a series of obstacles while collecting a bag of tiles. They’ll use the numbers inside to solve a combination lock that will release a key. They’ll cover their numbers, go under a net, up a wall, and use the key to unlock a set of puzzle pieces. They’ll then race to assemble a bat puzzle. First to finish wins immunity, guaranteeing themselves a 1 in 5 shot at winning the game. Losers tribal council where someone will become the 8th member of the jury. In addition, the first to finish wins reward. Want to know what you’re playing for? First to finish will get a big juicy steak waiting for them at camp with all the fixins. Jay has his tiles and is trying a combo. Everyone else is getting their tiles. Jay gets the combination and doesn’t cover his numbers. David goes to look at the combination and everyone else looks as well. David and Adam are dead last and Jay and Ken are in the lead. Everyone is now working on the puzzle. Jeff says Jay had a big lead but gave it up when he didn’t cover his combination. David and Jay are both battling for immunity. Jay drops his puzzle and loses everything and David calls Jeff over, he thinks he has it. David wins immunity. David gets to choose two people to have the steak dinner with him. But Jay pulls out his reward takeover and takes it over. He says he won’t take it away from David because he won and Jay chooses Adam since he gave him that reward takeover. David thanks Jay for not taking the reward from him. Jay says now he has to sit down with David and Adam and try and save himself. They have a table set up in the woods and go to enjoy their steak dinner. Jay makes his pitch saying he’s a bigger threat and he promises if he keeps winning he’ll take them to final three. Plus he points out Brett has friends on the jury. David says it’s very tempting because he’ll have a bigger shield in front of him. Jay is pitching Brett going home. Back at camp Brett is talking to Ken and Hannah and they talk about voting out Jay. David, Adam, and Hannah meet on the beach and talk about Brett or Jay. Adam wants Jay and Hannah talks about Brett because of his friends on the jury. Brett says it should be simple but he’s working with crazies. Hannah and David talk to Jay and say they’re down, but he has to get Adam on board. Jay makes his pitch to Adam and asks for one more shot. Adam says he and Jay have a weird relationship and he believes Jay would take him to final three, but could he beat him? Time for tribal council. Jeff asks about Jay stealing the reward and they talk about Jay’s pitch. They talk about friends on the jury and Brett says he hopes the others didn’t buy what Jay sold. Brett says he sees a lot of Jay’s friends on the jury too. Jeff asks Hannah about the choice and taking the wrong person to the end and Hannah says it’s tough because you have to be sure you read the jury correctly. Jeff asks about Jay forgetting to cover his combination and Jay says if he had just lifted the cover he’d be sitting there a champion. Ken says day 6 you remember to lift that cover, day 36 it’s not as easy. Jeff asks David about the advantage winning a reward is at this point in the game. Jeff asks Ken if there’s been talk of idols and if any will be played. Ken says anything is possible. Jeff asks Hannah what her take is on tonight’s vote. Hannah says there are six of us and every vote is a huge decision. Time to vote. Jeff goes to get the votes and says if anyone has an immunity idol, now is the time to play it. Jay pulls it out and everyone is dumbfounded. Jeff says this is NOT a hidden immunity idol. He says it is a work of art, but it has no value in this game. Jay is shocked. Ken gets up and asks if he can give something to Jeff. He pulls out the legacy advantage from his book and everyone is stunned. Jessica in the jury is shocked and says she hates the game. 15th person voted out and the 8th member of the jury is Jay. Jay says they’re all warriors and it was mad fun. He then says go ahead Jeffrey, snuff my torch. Jay walks away saying that was a million dollar lock combination. Jeff says and we’re down to five. Jay says you got me, it sucks to go out. He says it was a great experience and much love for everyone. Everyone voted for Jay. Day 37 and we’re at the immunity challenge. David is extraordinarily worried because Jay was his shield. He feels like he is going to be voted out next if he doesn’t win. Jeff takes the idol back and David says why did it have to be water Jeff? Immunity is back up for grabs. For today’s challenge, they’re going to maneuver a buoy through a series of obstacles. They’ll then use two handles to transport puzzle pieces across a teeter totter. Once they have all the pieces they’ll use the pieces to solve a word puzzle. First to finish win immunity and a spot in the final four. Everyone is very close at the first obstacle. Ken is first to finish, then Brett, then David, then Adam, and Hannah is last after the first obstacle. Jeff talks about David’s struggles in the water. Ken is through the second obstacle and on the beach. Brett and Adam are right behind. David is through. Hannah is last out of the water. Ken takes a lot of tiles and drops them and has to start over. Brett is going with fewer tiles and makes it. Ken drops the tiles again and Brett is going with his second set. Adam is going with his set and Ken goes again and they have their first. David is going with his and he barely makes it with his first set. Hannah drops on her first attempt and has to start over. Ken quickly has his second set and David and Adam behind. Brett has his last tiles and he is the first to start working on the puzzle. Ken is next, then Adam, then David. Everyone is on the word puzzle except Hannah. They are all struggling to finish the puzzle and Hannah catches up so everyone is now on the puzzle. Ken thinks he has it and the answer is not a participation trophy. Ken wins immunity. Brett congratulates Ken and says he won’t lie he wanted that one. Adam says the fact that David didn’t win is huge for his game because he needs David to go home tonight. Adam is looking for an idol just to make sure if there is one, it is not in David’s pocket. David, Hannah, and Ken are talking and David pitches Adam as the person to go. Hannah asks why Adam vs Brett. David says he has to get Adam before Adam gets him. Adam finds the immunity idol and says two idols for you mom. David pitches to Brett about voting Adam out and Brett tells Adam. Adam shows Brett the idol. Adam says he has total power over tonight’s vote. Adam tells Hannah about his idol and tells her to vote out David. Hannah says the guys don’t even realize she is the one with the power. Hannah says her vote is based on who she thinks will help her get to the end. Tribal council time. Jeff says Ken gets another win and asks Hannah how long before people scurry into the jungle. She says people want to talk and look for idols and Adam says he was the first to take off. Jeff says they often talk about Survivor is a marathon of sprints and asks David what part of the game they’re at. David says it’s about the final three at this point and Jeff asks Brett about that. Brett says he isn’t thinking about final three, he’s just trying to get to tomorrow and he’ll think about tomorrow, tomorrow. Jeff asks Hannah if there’s any way Brett isn’t thinking about final three combinations and Hannah says she definitely thinks he’s thinking about final three and how he gets there. She says they all are. Jeff asks who the biggest threats are right now to Hannah. Hannah says we’ve heard over and over that David is a threat. Brett pointed at David and David says he thinks Brett would be hard to sit next to. Jeff says David if I felt your pulse would it be racing. David says he thinks he might be going tonight, but you have to just rely on the people you trust and rely on their loyalty and hope it does mean something. Jeff says if it is the end tonight, what is the end of your story. David says he really, really wants to be the sole survivor but he wants to take from the game and apply it to his real life. Adam says that’s why he’s such a threat because he’s a great guy and he’s got a great story. Jeff asks Brett how much pressure there is when you realize you’re this close to winning the money. Brett says you don’t want it to end and if it’s him he will be devastated. Jeff says Hannah the last woman standing and the youngest, are you nervous about the vote. Hannah says yeah, we’re all nervous, because we all think we have a game plan and one of us is wrong. Time to vote. Jeff gets the votes and says if you have an immunity idol, now would be the time to play it. Adam pulls it out and says he really, really wants to make final four and he thinks a few bullets are coming his way. Jeff says this IS a hidden immunity idol and votes cast for Adam will not count. Dave, Brett, Dave, Brett, and the 16th person voted out and the 9th member of the jury is Brett. Brett says the flipper flips again. Adam looks at Hannah in shock. Brett tells David congratulations and the rest just lost a million dollars. Jeff says there is only one reason to continue to blind side people and that’s because you all are a legitimate threat to win the game. Brett says it sucks going out of the game. He says if those two people had some sort of a brain they would realize David is going to eat them alive and voted him out. But it’s a great game, it brought him out of his shell, and he’s lucky to have been a part of survivor after being a fan for so many years. Adam says he didn’t realize loyalty ran so deep in the game. Dave says Ken and Hannah saved him. Adam tells Hannah he can’t imagine what she could possibly say to justify her making a mistake. Jay says they put David one challenge away from the final tribal council. Jeff takes back immunity. For today’s challenge, they’re going to use a long pole to maneuver a bowl through a channel. When you get to the top, you’ll place the bowl and head back for the next one. The entire structure sits on a spring which means if they hit it too hard, it will wobble and the bowls drop they have to start over. The first person to stack 13 bowls or the person with the most bowls at the end of 30 minutes wins immunity and a guaranteed spot at the final tribal council. Adam drops the first bowl, David and Ken place their first bowls. Hannah and Adam still working on their first. David has his second and Hannah has her first. Jay has his first. Ken has his second. Adam, Ken, and Hannah are tied with 10. David hit his and has to start over. Ken has 11 and Hannah hits her structure and loses everything. Adam stops and watches Ken and hopes Ken’s falls over. Adam stops thinking he won and the wind carried his structure and everyone has now lost everything. Hannah is now in the lead. 2 minutes left and Hannah is in the lead with 10. Ken is trying to catch her. Adam has 8 and watching. Ken and Hannah have 10, Adam has 8, and David has lost all of his again. Ken and Hannah are tied. They will have a showdown. It's a 5 minute showdown. Whoever has the most bowls win, or the first to 13. Ken is aggressive and Hannah is slow and steady. Ken is in the lead and the wind is blowing so Ken waits. Hannah ties Ken with 4 but Ken places his 5th. Hannah places her fifth and Ken has 6. Hannah is right behind and there is 30 seconds left. Ken placed his sixth bowl and runs back for one more. Hannah has her sixth bowl. Ken places the seventh bowl and wins immunity. Everyone congratulates Ken on his immunity win. David has faith in Ken and he’s glad if he didn’t win, it was Ken. David says he doesn’t mind going to a fire making challenge against Adam. Adam talks to Hannah to make sure she will vote out David. Hannah says she set up David for the kill with the last council but they have to get Ken or they go to a fire challenge against the guy who’s made fire the whole time. Ken tells Hannah how close he and David is and asks Hannah to have faith in him. Hannah says it’s frustrating because Ken works by a different code, even when it’s not the smartest game move. David tells Adam it might be smarter for him and Hannah to go after each other and Adam says absolutely not. Adam says no way because if David doesn’t go home, then Adam can’t win anyway. Adam goes to practice making fire because he’s so nervous. David and Ken talk and David says he’s vote out Adam and he trusts him 100%. Ken says he can vote out his closest friend or they can make fire and see who comes out on top. Tribal council. Jeff says the penultimate tribal council. It’s not the last but the most important. Jeff says let’s start with one of the most dramatic challenges he ever seen. Jeff says the first tribal council Hannah took forever to vote and he thought she got lost, and now she marches up with authority, she also almost passed out watching a challenge, but today she almost took out Ken. She said it was crushing to be taken out that way, but they fought it out. Jeff says Adam so when it came to sudden death he couldn’t do anything but watch. Adam says he put himself in that position. His only goal was to make sure Dave didn’t win immunity. David says Adam is a good player but Adam realizes it played a better game all along. Adam says he’s been way at the top and everyone realized it but they just fell short of taking out David. Jeff says Ken you’re the only one who’s guaranteed to be here tomorrow. Ken says yeah they all wanted to talk but he wanted to be himself and he went out and fished. Jeff says David what was your pitch and David says loyalty and they made a final three since day 3. Adam says there is only so much you can do to get people to the end and try to win the game for their family. Hannah says any of the three of us could be going and Hannah says they seen truth at the last tribal council when Brett congratulated one person. Jeff says Ken you’re nodding as each of the three talk as if you agree with everything they’re saying. Ken says every one of their points if valid and these people are bright and none have had an easy game and they’ve all grown. Ken says at the end of the day you have to figure out what is most important and how that affects your decisions. Time to vote. Jeff goes to get the votes. First vote is for Dave. Second vote Adam. Third vote David. One vote left. 17th person voted out and the final member of our jury, David. Jeff congratulates the final three. David says obviously he wanted to be the sole survivor, he wanted to win the million dollars. But he had so much personal growth and he’s going to walk out of the game a new man and that’s worth more than a million dollars so in a way, he really did win. Hannah is talking about being on the beach on the last day. Then we see Ken and he says he’s tired of that generation because they don’t know how to be quiet and just appreciate what they’ve done. He says he’s played an old school type of game. He says he has to win to give him and his daughter a better life. They go to get tree meal and they get their breakfast baskets. Hannah says she started the game with the millennial stereotype and neurotic but she’s grown into the player she is. She says the final council will be a test for her because she believes she played a better game than Ken and Adam. Adam thinks he’s played a good game and he’s won challenges and found idols and he’s done it in a way where he hasn’t been a target. He wants to do everything he can to win for his mom. Jeff welcomes them to tribal and explains the power has shifted. He gives them a minute to collect their thoughts. Time to begin final tribal council. Taylor is first. Taylor says he’s one of the more spontaneous millennials and his vote isn’t set. He wants them to make their pitch to him. Hannah says she hopes everyone is as open as he is. She says her game wasn’t as flashy, but she played strategic and put every one of them on the jury the same way Adam and Ken did. Ken talks about loyalty and he thinks that deserves some credit. Adam says he feels he played the best game and he kept his alliance safe and was never in a target position. Sunday is next. Sunday says they talked a lot between the millennials and the gen-xers. She wants to know if they played more like a millennial or a gen-xer and how adaptable they were. Ken says he was rigid and as adaptable as others who might be called a flipper. Adam says you had a gen-xer who wasn’t movable and then you had someone who’s allies didn’t know what they were going to do at tribal council and then there’s me a combination of both. Hannah says for a point of clarification Adam just said she was unpredictable, but Hannah tells Sunday it was her that thought Sunday and Brett were a dangerous pair. So to them it might feel unpredictable and Adam as usual went along with me. Adam says those were two times she actually went rogue. Hannah says I made a decision I felt was right at the time. Adam says we talked about those two times later and he felt they were bad strategic moves and Hannah says she believes they were the right ones and that’s why she made them. Jessica is next. Ken you came into this game putting yourself on a pedestal based on being loyal and honest and I’m shocked at the decision you made on day 38, to take out David. The one person that you promised on day 2 you would bring to the end. Ken says the decision he made on day 38 was the hardest thing in this game. David, you were my number 2 alliance, number 1 is my daughter. That’s the only reason. Jessica says thank you, I appreciate the honesty.
  14. 5:00 PM BBT We have a final recap of the final 4 and see the competition between Justin and Morgan and Justin being sent home. Now, after a season of fun, cheers, tears, and confrontations, it all comes down to this. Only one will win the quarter of a million dollars. Who did America choose to win, Jason, Kryssie, or Morgan? Find out right now on Big Brother: Over the Top. 5:06 PM BBT Good evening! I’m Julie Chen! Welcome to the live season finale of Big Brother: Over the Top. 65 days ago we embarked on a historic journey launching a completely new version of Big Brother, and it has definitely been over the top, giving you America more access and more opportunities to influence the game. America’s Care Package, America’s nominee, and America’s eviction vote allowed you to impact the game and forced the houseguests to play like never before. But your biggest move has yet to be made. For more than 24 hours you at home have been voting on who you want to win BBOTT. So, who do you think is worthy of the grand prize? We’ll find out soon enough. But first, Jason, Kryssie, and Morgan, three very different houseguests, played three very different games. 5:07 PM BBT First up, Jason. He beat out Jozea in a viewer vote to get a second shot at playing this game. Now, just Kryssie and Morgan stand in his way of winning it all. Jason says his journey in this house has been a very steep mountain. He was voted in by America and he was the only veteran in the house making him an immediate target for the first HOH, Monte. But he won the first veto competition securing his safety. Quickly, the house became very divided and he found himself with Kryssie, Shane, Danielle, Neeley, and Justin and they called themselves the Late Night Jamboree. In week 2, his girl Kryssie won the care package, and she does the smart thing and saves me. The house was totally divided, and me and Shelby were majorly divided. And guess what, I was not afraid to tell her. Week by week, every side started to dwindle in numbers and when Shelby won HOH, I knew she was going to do one of two things and target me or target someone in my alliance. But America’s Care Package came to the rescue again. And as co-HOH, I got out one of Shelby’s closest allies, Alex. 5:10 PM BBT At the final six, I was nominated with my girl Danielle. But I got Kryssie and Justin on board to cut her loose. This final veto was so important, one of the sides was going to lose a number, and I did what I had to do and won that veto. So when I won the veto, it gave us the power to vote out my archnemesis, Shelby. With everything on the line I won the final HOH and I decided to bring Kryssie into the final three with me. She’s been pretty loyal but when it comes down to it, I think I can beat her. Here I am, a superfan who lives in their mom’s basement, but I could potentially be the first winner of BBOTT. 5:11 PM BBT Next up, Kryssie. She stayed true to her alliance all season long, and her closest ally Jason rewarded her with a spot in the final three. When I first walked into the Big Brother house the only thing on my mind was 250 g’s. I definitely didn’t think I’d walk into such a kick ass group of friends. But, just like high school if you pal around with all the weird kids, the popular kids don’t know what to make of you. And lo and behold, I’m on the block the first three weeks of the game. But I survived and after three weeks in a row of sitting on the nomination couch, I was over it. I was ready to take that HOH key. I was ready to smash whatever the next competition was. My alliance was definitely out for Alex’s blood that week, but she was safe with a safety servant care package. So the professional waitress had a servant all week. Thanks Alex. With Alex off the table, it came with a green light to go after Alex’s right hand Scott, with Morgan as a pawn. But America must have seen something that I didn’t and they nominated Neeley, one of my trusted allies, and she went home on my HOH. Thankfully, the tides changed for the Jamboree and we stayed in power and kept me off the block week after week. But as the game progressed, numbers dwindled and I had to make a deal with the other side of the house, even if that meant jumping into an alliance with a really stupid name. Obviously, the Jambalaya gang was as dumb as I thought it was because Morgan won HOH and put me on the block. After a crazy week full of surprises Shelby ended up next to me on the block. But I knew my fellas wouldn’t send me home. I may not have won that final HOH, but Jason did and he chose me to go to the final three with him. So, here it is America. The girl who thought she was going home week one is sitting her at the end of the first BBOTT. I really hope that’s enough to earn me to 250 g’s. 5:14 PM BBT And finally, Morgan. She played the game with her sister Alex, but now she stands alone as the only one left from the other side of the house. When I first walked in to the BB house, I had no idea how I was going to play this game. Then things got even more complicated when a familiar face walked in the door and, surprise, my sister Alex is in the house playing the game with me. Things really started off on the right foot when my friend Monte won the first HOH. And then my sister Alex was the next HOH, and then Scott. Even though my friends were in power, America nominated my allies, and they went home. And then I formed the ball smashers and it was us versus them. We set our sights on taking out the other side of the house starting with Shane and Neeley. But then things started to go downhill a little bit. I was nominated week 4 and had to win the veto to pull myself off. Then we started to notice our alliance member Whitney started to get a little too close with some of the people on the other side of the house. All of these events led to Alex walking out the door at the beginning of the double eviction. I felt hopeless going into this double eviction, but America awarded with me a care package. I was awarded the veto and was ultimately able to keep me and Shelby safe that night and Whitney went packing. That’s what she gets for jumping ship. When it was only me and Shelby left in the house, we formed an alliance with the other side of the house called the Jambalaya gang, but in the end they weren’t loyal and it just fell through. But even when my last alliance member, Shelby, won HOH that week, America threw me a curve ball and I was America’s nominee. But then Shelby came through and pulled me off the block. I think the biggest turning point for me in the game, honestly was winning HOH. I wanted so bad to return the favor and help Shelby out. But then Jason won the veto and I had no other choice but to nominate Shelby. I knew I was truly alone in this game when I had to watch Shelby, my best friend, walk out that door. With my back against the wall, me and Justin went head to head and I came out the big winner. This money would be huge, winning would mean the world to me. 5:19 PM BBT So, Kryssie, Jason, or Morgan. One of them will leave the house tonight as the first winner of BBOTT. But all three had to beat out some formidable opponents to make it to finale night. Please welcome back, Cornbread, Monte, Shane, Neeley, Scott, Alex, Whitney, Danielle, Shelby, and the most recent evictee Justin. Welcome back, hello everyone. Well, you ten were evicted and your dream of being the first winner of BBOTT was cut short. However, Kryssie, Jason, and Morgan are still in the game and before we do anything we need to reunite the ten of you with the three of them. Hello final three! Now I am here with all of the evicted HG and as you know everything played out live for our viewers at home and that means all the evicted HG are caught up on what went down inside the house, so I’m sure they have a lot to say. Are you three ready? They answer yes. Julie asks if you ten can hear them and they respond yes. 5:21 PM BBT Let’s get started. Neeley, you were the fourth person evicted from the BB house, I’m curious, if after watching from home if your opinion of anyone changed? Neeley responds, Absolutely. Being in the mix, of course I was aligned with one side of the house, but going forward after my eviction, I was very impressed with Danielle’s game play. Like, she just really kicked it into high gear and I was impressed with her and how she was playing the game. 5:22 PM BBT Scott, I want to turn to you because after you were evicted I told you that two members of your alliance were sisters, Alex and Morgan, and you were shocked. Dumbfounded. Was that the most shocking thing to you this season? That was really surprising Julie, but I got to say I think Shelby’s secret caught me for a little bit more of a surprise. I mean, to know that she’s a lawyer, that’s so impressive finishing a year early. I was impressed with all the ladies in my alliance and how well they kept their secrets. Julie says she told everyone she was a waitress and you believed her and Scott says of course. 5:22 PM BBT Well someone who didn’t believe that the two sisters were sisters was you Kryssie. I want to turn to you, you were in denial. Read my lips, Alex and Morgan are full blooded sisters. They show a picture of Alex and Morgan to the HG. We’re not pulling your leg, this is not a twist, why didn’t you believe Morgan when she told you, Kryssie? Kryssie says you know, this whole experience was designed to make you not trust anyone, ever. So when it came to Morgan, she had already kind of lied to my face before, and I made peace with the fact that Morgan was never going to tell me the truth again. Even after she told the house, I was like there’s no way. She’s lying, there’s no way they are sisters and the more she talked about it I was like oh, I’m dumb. I believe it now. Julie says so you’re with us now? Kryssie says yes. 5:23 PM BBT Monte, I want to turn to you because you were close with Morgan in the house and she didn’t reveal the secret to you. Is there anything you would like to say to Morgan? Monte says First of all that was a good twist, I had no idea, that’s hilarious. Just overall, congratulations, I’m very proud of you. I’m happy you were number one alliance and you’re in the final three, good choice. You got great family and friends all supporting you no matter what. You got a great character, a good person, everyone loves you. Best of luck! Julie says very nice. 5:24 PM BBT Julie says well there was another secret in the house. Whitney, were you surprised to find out that your alliance member, Shelby, was a law school graduate and not a waitress? Whitney says I definitely did not see that coming. But I always thought that Shelby was so smart, a lot smarter than she led people to believe and so it really didn’t shock me that much that she just graduated law school. But she hid it very well. Julie says and for the record, clearly there are so many brilliant waiters and waitresses out there. Kryssie’s sitting in the final three, she’s a waitress also a singer so let’s put that out there. 5:25 PM BBT There was another twist this season when a previous HG came back this season to play with all you newbies, of course that person is sitting in the final three, Jason. Jason, why do you think you made it so much farther this season than you did the last time you played this game? Jason says I don’t know Julie, that’s a good question. I am such a fan of this show, I was sort of blinded last time I was here by the glittering lights of being in here and making friends, but this season I was just totally more serious and unfortunately to some of the people you’re sitting with, I do love them as friends, but I was like it’s time for you to go, I’m here for some money. Julie says that’s the name of the game I guess. 5:25 PM BBT Julie turns to Alex. You are a gamer, you love this game, you love all games, you talked early on we got to get this guy Jason out, he knows the game, he has a following, but yet, your housemates chose to keep him so far he made it to the final three. Why do you think that was? Alex says you look at week one when Monte targeted Jason and then he was nominated by America and sent home. My alliance and me were scared to touch Jason. We were uncomfortable targeting him and we didn’t want to go home because of that so it was let’s wait until America’s power ends and get him out then, but it was too late to do that. Julie says so you feel like if we target him, America will hate us. Alex says yeah I feel like he was protected by America. 5:26 PM BBT Julie turns to Morgan. We all you know you played the game with your sister, Alex. Do you think having her in the house helped you get to the end? Morgan says well I am sitting her at the end, so I’m going to say yes it did help me some. We came into the game and we thought we were going to be in separate alliances, I don’t want to work with her, let’s divide and conquer. But it just happened we clicked with the same people, like hey Shelby, hey Whitney, we just connected with them. Honestly, I think having Alex here did help me because she was the only one I could fully trust, and you know I learned a lot from her and she’s a super hard gamer. I picked up some things from her that I probably wouldn’t have if she wasn’t in the house with me so hey Alex, I miss you. Julie asks Alex if she’s proud of how Morgan did. Alex says I am so proud of her, she’s really impressed me with how well she’s composed herself this season and she made the final three, so props to her. 5:27 PM BBT Julie asks Alex if as a result of BB, the two of them were not close when they moved in, do you think you will be close now? Alex says oh absolutely, we have stuff to talk about for a lifetime now. So I can’t wait to hang out with Morgan outside the house and reminisce over all this great stuff. Julie asks Morgan what she has to say. Morgan definitely thinks they are going to be way closer after this. You know, we lived in a house for like 43 days together and we didn’t like kill each other and we really didn’t argue that much, I think I put her in a headlock once in the storage room. But that was it! It was such a good experience, we really bonded, it made a great experience even better by having her here with me. 5:28 PM BBT Julie turns to Shelby and says a unique element of this season was that everyone had a chance to address America directly in the diary room, the diary room sessions. Do you think this helped your game, or hurt your game? Shelby thinks it helped her game, she had a lot of fun in those DR sessions and I also think they helped eliminate revisionist history, you have to reveal your plan to America before whatever competition happens so you couldn’t go back in the DR and say well I meant for that to happen. It made everyone a lot more honest and they were a lot of fun. 5:28 PM BBT Well, the DR was the place to get away from the rest of the HG and have some alone time, if you will, with America. And it was pretty funny to watch. We thought it would be fun to share some of those DR highlights. Let’s all take a look. 5:31 PM BBT Julie says now some of you have very dirty mouths. Potty mouth, potty mouth, that would never make it on the broadcast version, but that’s the beauty of the internet. You can say what you want, then she says sh*t. Parents, I am sorry, Kids, that was a joke. Cursing is bad, let’s move on. 5:32 PM BBT Julie turns to Justin and says you’ve had your own very unique moments, for example we saw your pizza song and dance. Well, here’s another one that shows your love of salsa dancing. We see the clip of him dancing. Julie asks was that strategy to win over America or is that really just who you are? Or both? Justin says honestly, it wasn’t to win over America. I just zoned out and was in my own little world most of the time in the house. It was just me being me. That’s me 24/7. Julie says ok. 5:34 PM BBT Julie turns to Shane and says when you were evicted you were sitting on the block side by side with Danielle, your girlfriend in the house, and it looked like you sacrificed your game for Danielle who you had just met a few weeks earlier. Looking back, any regrets? Shane says no, everything I did I would do it again. I came into the house to have fun, he had a strategy but when he met Danielle it went out the door. Julie says by the way your hair looks great. Julie says to Danielle I want to know what you think. When Shane came out of the house he professed his love for you, so what is the status of your relationship now? Danielle says well he finally made it official. I said it was just a showmance because he didn’t ask me to be his girlfriend but he did and we came home. We are in a relationship. When I came out of the house I was worried he wasn’t going to like me anymore, but when I watched his interview and he said he fell in love with me I was really excited to tell him those exact same things before he left the house, but I kind of chickened out. So yeah, I definitely fell in love with him in the house and we’re doing good! I’m definitely making a trip to North Carolina soon. 5:35 PM BBT Final question is to you Cornbread. Between Jason, Kryssie, and Morgan who are you most surprised to see sitting in the final three? Cornbread says Kryssie. He gave her a pep talk in the first week and didn’t think she’d make it another couple of days, but look at her now. He’s just blown away. Kryssie says me too. Cornbread says then I went out the door two days later, so thank you. Julie says now are you like blown away impressed or blown away like why are you there? Cornbread says I’m not negatively blown away, I’m happy for her. They all three deserve to be up there, they worked hard, and it is what it is. 5:36 PM BBT Julie says as we know America has been voting, and since they’ve been home they got to vote too. By a show of hands, who voted for Jason? Whitney, Shane, Danielle, and Neeley all raise their hands. No one raised their hands for Kryssie. Julie says raise your hand if you voted for Morgan to win? Alex, Shelby, Scott, Monte, and Cornbread all raise their hands. Julie says Justin you didn’t vote? Julie says we didn’t even let you sign in to anything to vote? Justin says he didn’t even have an opportunity to. Julie says if you could vote, who would you vote for? Justin says all three of them! Julie says it will be interesting to see who America agreed with. 5:37 PM BBT Julie replays the pleas from the final three. You can check it out here: http://www.tvfanforums.net/index.php?/topic/108799-wednesday-november-30-2016-big-brother-ott-live-feed-updates/#comment-870225. 5:46 PM BBT Julie says the votes are closed and have been tallied. Julie says the winner will get a quarter of a million dollars, second place will get $25,000, and the third place person will be evicted and walk out empty handed. Julie reads the third place person is…Kryssie. 5:47 PM BBT Julie asks Kryssie if she wants the envelope that says her name and she says yeah! Julie says you said when I said your name that you saw that coming. Why did you say that? Kryssie says she elected to throw comps and she was embarrassed to admit it and she flew under the radar. Julie asks how she feels and Kryssie says she’s stoked, she’s so happy. Julie asks why she thinks Jason and Morgan got more votes? Kryssie says she won exactly one competition and they pulled out win after win when they needed to and she never really had to win and she was more interested in the social aspect. Julie asks who she thinks should win and Kryssie says Jason. Julie says because he deserves it or because he was her ride or die? Kryssie says a little bit of both and he’s been fighting since week one too. He says Big Brother means the world to him. Kryssie says she never thought of turning on Jason. Julie says early in the game it looked like she wanted to throw in the towel. Kryssie says she was super homesick and she’s not good at change and she has anxiety. Kryssie says the longer she was there the more she realized it meant to her, but mostly she was homesick. Julie says so you’re happy you did it? Kryssie says oh yeah. Julie talks about the fight between Justin and Kryssie and her saying he was only in the final 4 because of her. Kryssie says it was true because on D/E Danielle and Jason were ready to cut him and she cried. Julie asks if she will be friends with anyone in the house. Kryssie says Whitney and Danielle and Neeley, and obviously Jason. Kryssie tells Justin she loves him to bits but she was mad at him on Thanksgiving and you too Shane. Julie tells her it’s time for her to join the other evictees. 5:54 PM BBT Jason and Morgan, it’s down to you two. Morgan representing the ball smashers and Jason representing the Late Night Jamboree. Julie says they survived the game and all the twists and turns and it’s not time to find out who America chose as the winner. In a game that was so divided, it seems the fans were divided as well. It has been one of the closest votes in the history of the game and less than 20,000 votes separated them. The first winner of Big Brother Over the Top is…congratulations Morgan, you are the winner of BBOTT. 5:56 PM BBT Julie congratulates both Morgan and Jason. Julie asks Morgan how it feels to be the first winner of BBOTT? Morgan says her mind is blown. Julie asks if she thought Jason one and Morgan says yes, 100%. She looked at him and said Jason I didn’t win and Jason said yes you did. Julie said wait! Jason, you thought she won and not you? Jason said he was hoping he won, but Julie said her name not his. Julie congratulates Jason and everyone. Julie wants to thank all the viewers and wants to remind everyone the regular season will return for its 19th season this summer. 5:57PM BBT From outside the Big Brother OTT house, I'm JC. Good night.
  15. 5:38 PM BBT In this competition, you must match the photos of the 9 evicted HG to the correct clues in order to solve the puzzle. You will begin at the start mat. When the air horn sounds, you may look at the clues on the game board, race through the metal fencing and over the hay bales to retrieve a HG photo. Once you have a photo, return back through the obstacles and race back to the puzzle board to place the HG photo above the clue that you think is a match. You will repeat this process, retrieving only one photo at a time until you think you have the HG’s photo matched to the correct clues. Be warned! Some of the clues may match multiple HG, but there is only one correct solution to the puzzle. When your puzzle is complete, run through the obstacles and hit your button to see if you’re right. If you hear a buzzer, you must continue playing until you figure out where you went wrong. The first player to correctly place all 9 HG photos on the puzzle board and hit their button will guarantee their spot in the final 3 and a shot at the $250,000 grand prize. Unfortunately for the loser, you are evicted and you will have just a few moments to collect your belongings, say your good-byes, and head out the door. The stakes have never been higher. Are you ready to play End of the Road? 5:40 PM BBT Additional rules: You must run through the metal fencing each time in both directions. You must not go over or around. You must go over the tiered hay bale obstacles in both directions, you can’t go around it. You may retrieve one photo at a time. You must stay in your designated play area. You may not go around the wall and look at the other player’s game board. 5:41 PM BBT The clues are: Evicted with 10 votes, 5th HOH, Not infected, Won HOH Day 15, Lost “Not Fitting In”, Only on the Block 2 times, Evicted day 43, Taken off the block, only won 2 competitions. 5:41 PM BBT Justin places Alex’s and Cornbread’s photo on the board. Morgan is going to get the photos and bringing them back and putting them on the ground. Justin gets Danielle’s photo and places it on the board. Morgan comes back and places Cornbread’s photo on the board immediately. Jason telling them both good job and to keep going. Justin is a touch behind, but has Monte on the board. Morgan has placed Danielle’s photo on the board. 5:45 PM BBT Justin is slowing down and wheezing. Morgan is still keeping up a steady pace. Justin has placed Neeley and Scott on the board. Morgan has added Scott to her board. Justin has placed 6 photos and Morgan has placed 3. However, Morgan has more photos by her board to work with. 5:48 PM BBT Justin places Shane on his board. Morgan is placing more photos on her board. Morgan now has all of her photos placed and Justin still has 2 to go. Morgan finished first and secured her spot in the Final Three. She finished in 7 minutes. Justin still had 2 more to go. 5:52 PM BBT They all head inside and Justin says his good-byes and says he loves them all. He gets his inhaler so he can say good-bye again. Everyone tells him he did a good job and he should be proud. Jason, Kryssie, and Morgan have a group hug. Justin exits the house and the F3 watch his photo turn grey. 5:55PM The HG assemble in the LR and Morgan put's Monty's arm around her shoulder. JC comes on the screen and says hello F3. For almost 10 weeks you've been playing BBOTT and America has been watching. They will soon cast their votes for who they want to win BB OTT. But we thought we'd give each of you a chance in a formal setting to tell them why you should get their vote. Wednesday night at 7pm ET (4pm BBT), you will make your live pleas to America. This is your opportunity to plead your case to your viewers and explain why you should win over the 2 HG sitting next to you. Think hard about what you what you want to say - it could be a speech worth a quarter of a million dollars! Good luck, HG! 5:59PM BBT The F3 get champagne and sit in the LR to talk about the comp, the game and stuff. Monty is not drinking.
