Episode 9


Previously on Survivor...A strong alliance of 7 was calling the shots, at TC accusations were made, Lauren saved her vote for later and Desi went home. 10 are left, who will be voted out tonight? Mike says again who he voted for didn't go home. He needs to throw some names out there, he talks about Cole. Lauren feels confident her secret advantage is in play. Lauren and Ben say they will have to rethink things when it gets down to 7. Ryan tells Devon he had an HII.


Day 22...Reward challenge time.. divided into two teams, swim out to a platform dive down to retrieve a key, use the key to unlock balls, use the balls to throw into a basket. First team to get 5 baskets. They will tour on a yacht, with sandwiches, cold beer, red wine and chocolate cake. Blue is Ben, Devon Ashley, Ryan and Lauren. Red is Cole Chrissy, JP, Joe and Mike. Go!!   Blue out first but red is right behind. Red gets first key, blue right behind. Red takes the lead with 2 keys. Blue catching up. Both teams on last key with red in the lead. Red starts using the keys to unlock the chest with the balls. Blue right behind. Red starts shooting for the baskets. Red gets 1 and 2 , 3. Blue gets 1, 2 and 3...its tied up. Red gets 4 and 5....Red wins Reward!! Boat comes in to take them off to the yacht. Blue goes back to camp.


On the yacht they watch dolphins jump. They eat the food with gusto. Cole says he has only lost 1 comp. Its good to have food. Joe cuts into the cake looking for a clue, he searches the boat too. The yacht passes camp and blows the horn, the others at camp give the yachters a quartet of full  moons. At camp Ryan tells Ben he has the HII. Ben is ecstatic. Ben says this 7 has to stick together. Day 23. they guys see a sea snake while Joe searches under the flag for the HII.


Joe says he is going to ppl so upset at him they will keep him around cuz they can get rid of him at any time. At camp Joe says Ashely will make it to F3 being a goat. Joe says he doesn't care, he didn't come here for friends or adventure. Ashley tells us she will be talking about Joe going before Cole at the next round table.


 Ben and Devon take a walk. Devon says he and Ben are set for F7. Ben says he wants to sit next to Devon. Ben says Devon has a good heart. Ben says Devon will find out secrets about the 7. Ben tells Devon about Ryan's HII. Devon tells us this game just got complicated, Ryan has been telling Devon he was the only one to know about HII....Devon and Ben make a pact for F2.


Time for immunity challenge...They will have bars on their shoulders causing them to be in a squatting position, if they go too low their flag will go up if they go too high their urn will drop. Go!! Ashley is the first to drop. There is no wiggle room in this challenge. Mike drops. JP wiggling. The wind is blowing. JP is out. Devon looks down to look at Chrissy's form and is out. Joe is out too. Ben is out. Chrissy, Cole, Lauren and Ryan are left.  20 minutes into the challenge. Chrissy gives out and her flag raises, she is out. Ryan is out. Its Cole and Lauren in a showdown. Lauren says it looks like Coles thing is leaning a bit. Both are wiggling. Cole is out. Lauren wins immunity. Cole tells us its disappointing to not win, he has a target on his but they all don't like Joe so hopefully they will take Joe out.


Day 24, they congratulate Lauren on her win. Ben suggests they split the vote 4 Cole and 3 Mike. Ashely is PO'd its Mike and not Joe. Lauren says Joe is not a threat, now is the time to get out Cole. Ashley annoyed, she is going to try to get ppl to vote out Joe. Mike asks Ben who to vote for, Ben says Cole. Mike says he cant trust Ben, he has to do something to send a big threat home. Mike goes to Joe with the suggestion of getting Ben out. Mike says he will play his HII...but for whom? Chrissy questions Ben why Mike not Joe. Ben says he doesn't want to be a dictator, Chrissy says ppl are starting feel steamrolled by Ben.


Chrissy says there is no more strategic threat then Joe. Time for TC. Desi comes in as Jury. Joe says the game is lost, he isn't part of the round table. Mike LOL says he is a jester. Cole says he and Joe are first on the chopping block. Chrissy says the vibe at camp is bad. Mike says he is disappointed with his tribe. Painting Joe as a pariah and not voting him out is not playing this game with character. Lauren rubs her forehead. Lauren says she agrees with Mike if they weren't playing Survivor.  Chrissy says they have to vote tonight so they can be successful at the next TC. Joe says they all live in a fantasy world. Ashley says you can count numbers but you cant figure in alliances and relationships. Ben says relationships will get you to the end. Joe has no relationship. They say they are ready to vote.


Time to vote. Time to tally the votes...anyone want to play the HII? Mike puts it out of his pocket and gives it to Jeff says he is playing it for Mike. Any votes cast for Mike do not count. Votes: Ben, Mike, Mike, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole, 9th person voted out and second person in jury is Cole. He says good luck, have fun out there. Jeff says alliances are the cornerstone of survivor, but as ppl dwindle those on the bottom get desperate and its harder to keep alliances together.


Next time on Survivor: The alliance of 7 seem set in stone but they start to crumble from the inside.

Previously on Survivor...After the merge cracks began to form. Mike caused chaos at TC,  played an HII and Cole was sent home. 9 are left, who will be voted out tonight. At camp Mike says he had to spice it up a bit. Mike tells us he had to play his HII for 2 reasons, one, he wasn't going to be one that goes home with an HII and there was a chance they would vote Joe. Joe says Mike messed up by playing it. Mike tells us he has to play his game and that's to make the 7 crack.


 Time for reward challenge. They will use their feet only, they have to drop some blocks from a stack, then they have to stack the block and plant a flag. Reward is an aural tour of Figi, cheeseburgers, French fries and ice cold beer. Goooo. All have their blocks released and starting to build a strong foundation. Lauren on second level, Mike on her tail. Mike on his third level with Lauren right behind him. Ashley on her third level. Mike, Lauren, Ashley and Chrissy in the lead. Mike places his last piece on the top and only needs to plant his flag...he hits a piece and it drops. He needs to set the flag down and redo the piece. Lauren working on her flag.  Lauren carefully tries her flag...and she gets it. Lauren wins reward. Lauren can bring someone with her, she picks Devon and Ben and one more....Ashley. Mike agrees with Ashley's choices. Lauren says she picked them for strategic reasons...they are not a strong group of 7, its about to blow up.


The sea plane flies past the camp and Joe moons it. Mike says its a day for he and Joe to stir things up. Mike and Joe will call their table the Coconuts. Ryan says making things easy to keep the 7. Ryan and Chrissy talk getting ppl out. Ben will be the first of the 7 out. At the reward Chrissy says she dropped mustard on the pants then figures she hasn't had a bath in 20 some days why bother about it. Lauren says JP, Chrissy and Ryan are to comfortable.. what do they know and lets figure out what to do. They don't like Ryan has an HII. Lauren tells about her secret advantage. Ashley likes Laurens plan to break from the 7 early.


 Lauren says Joe and Mike need to stick around for a while. Ben is on board and will ride with them to the F4. Devon likes it and is happy Lauren is on his side. They reach for more burger buns and find letters from home. Lauren gets a letter from her daughter. They thank Lauren. Devon says this is really bonding.


 Day 27. Ben reads his letter from his wife and kids. His wife saved his life. His family gave him the gas and fuel to play the game. Ben also finds a clue to a HII. He walks passed it hanging in a tree, he sees it and does a dance. He gets the HII. He isn't going to tell anyone cuz nobody can keep a secret.


Immunity challenge time...They have to balance on a triangular platform in the water. They will move up the triangle at intervals. If their hands touch the platform or they fall off they are out. Jeff makes them an offer....instead of pain they can pleasure...they can feast on peanut butter and chocolate. Devon, Ben and Lauren decide to sit it out and enjoy the feast. Mike, Ashely, Joe, JP, Ryan, Chrissy will compete. There is some water movement, they are struggling. Ben offers Jeff some peanut butter and chocolate, he declines. JP falls and is out. 20 minutes into the challenge and they move to the top of the triangle. Chrissy is out. Joe struggling and is out. Ryan is out. Ashley and Mike are only ones left. Mike falls. Ashely wins immunity. Ben likes stuff off his fingers. Time to head back to camp.


Day 27, the congrat Ashley. Ryan is surprised the ones didn't compete. The 7 talk about getting out Joe or Mike. Guys will vote Mike, girls vote Joe. Devon says things need to change. The reward challenge group talk about taking out flush the HII and get rid of Ryan. Devon goes to Ben and Chrissy and suggests Ben votes Mike but don't let anyone know. Ben is going to pretend he is not with them. Ben says he is down with it.  Lauren talks to Mike and Joe. Mike is excited about the 7 breaking up. Lauren says 4th of July is going to come early tonight.


Time for TC. Jury comes in. Mike says it looked like he was crazy at last TC. Because he is a doctor ppl will believe him. Mike and Joe are giving them a show all day long. Ryan says its a package deal....buy one get one free. He give them credit for trying. Joe says he doesn't have to line up with everyone just someone. Lauren says it looks like its going to be the perfect storm. Joe says they are like the two kids in the neighborhood that no one wants to play with.   Ryan says its happening when you don't know its happening. Devon says you have to find someone you trust, they are your eyes and ears. Ben says finding trust in a game of distrust is the hard part. Time to vote. Anyone want to use an HII? nope. Votes: Mike, Joe, Mike, Mike, JP, JP, JP, JP (they are all looking around) 10 person voted out and third person in jury is JP. JP walks away saying Damn they got me good.


Back at camp they wonder what happened. Chrissy is upset by how the 5 treated the other 3. Ryan says he is infuriated but not showing it. Ben says Mike and Joe are in the dark about him working with Devon and Lauren. Ben says he should get a reward for his role with being on the outs. Lauren says it reversed the roles of Ryan and Chrissy. Devon tells Ryan he had to do it. Ryan has giving Devon every piece of info he had. Ryan tells Devon he never wavered in his trust. Devon has his own plan to win the million and Ryan is no longer a part of that.


Day 28. Devon says his game has been cloudy but not its getting clear. Devon wants to keep Joe over Chrissy, he thinks Chrissy is a challenge threat.


It's reward challenge time. Two teams of 4, they will swim out to a boat, paddle to shore collecting 3 bags of logs, use the logs to push puzzle pieces thru a tunnel, put the puzzle together. Reward is spa day with food. Red team is Lauren, Ryan, Mike and Chrissy. Blue is Joe, Devon ,Ben, Ashely. Goooo. Blue has an early lead. Blue on their way to second bag of logs. both on their last bag, its dead even. Blue has all 3 bags up the beach first and start to shove logs thru the tunnel. Blue extending their lead. Red starts to push the logs thru but Blue has all their puzzle pieces out. Red starts on their puzzle now. Blue has a huge head start. Red making progress. Blue has something wrong, they fix it and win reward. Joe, Ben, Ashley and Devon will head off to the spa. Joe says the tables have turned, its time to eat and get a massage.

Spa time. Devon says its like hitting the reset button. Ben still acting it up to Joe. Joe says Ben has been the leader but now he is at the bottom. Joe says now Ben knows how Joe felt. Ashley says Ben is selling it. Ashley and Devon are happy. Back at camp, Ryan and Mike talk, Ryan is trying to find info from Mike. Mike gives up nothing. Mike says he gave Ryan so many opportunities to work together and Ryan said no. Ryan is a buck later and a dollar short. Lauren and Chrissy talk, Lauren just nods and ahummmmms. Lauren says she jumped ship once she wont do it again. They make a tree swing.


Day 29. Its raining. Chrissy is having a survivor day. She is cold, hungry and having a pitty party.


Day 30. Immunity challenge time: they have to use a driving wheel to take key thru and obstacle course, that key will unlock some puzzle pieces, first person to complete the word puzzle wins immunity. Ashley drops her key urn and has to go back. Lauren, Mike have to go back. Ben, Devon, Joe and Chrissy on the second obstacle. Ben unlocks his pieces and carries the pieces to a bin, there are many pieces to transport to the bin. Devon in the lead followed by Ben. Ashley takes 8 blocks at once. Devon has all his pieces in the bin. Devon, Ashley and Ben at working on their puzzle. Lauren and Chrissy have all their pieces now. Chrissy changing pieces around. Devon changing pieces. Chrissy pulls it out and wins immunity with the word "Invulnerable" As she gets the necklace she says she has been waiting for this for 16 years.


Day 30. Devon says he doesn't have a 12 letter word in his vocabulary. Lauren, Ben, Devon and Ashley agree to vote out Joe. Devon says they will tell Joe and Mike Lauren will use her extra vote tonight but she wont. They tell Joe and Mike that the vote will be 3/3 then in revote they will vote Ben. Joe is ecstatic. Mike is happy Ben will be going. Chrissy, Ben and Ryan talk. Ryan says he might play his HII, Ben says do it. Lauren tells us it could be the time to get Ben out. Ashley is with Lauren, Ben could go home tonight. Ashley talks to Devon about it. Devon says this vote is a hard one.


 Time for TC: Jury comes in. Mike says he is loving it, he is living a dream. Chrissy says you cant help but be joyful for playing her dream. Joe says at TC you really test alliances. Ben thinks he is going home tonight. Joe says Ben was never King Ben he was King Ben with kings and queens around him. Mike says you can say he and Joe are at the bottom but it doesn't mean they are not in it. Ryan says now its a group of 5 not 7. Mike says just cuz you didn't do it right doesn't mean they wont.


Ashley says the ups and downs are constant. Chrissy says even if an alliance is strong you still look for the cracks. Joe feels comfortable for the first time. Ben says just like them every comfortable alliance gets blindsided. Time to vote: Tally the votes: anyone want to use an HII? Ryan gives Jeff his HII and is using it on himself. Votes: Ryan, Ryan, Ashley, Ashley, Joe, Joe, Joe, 11th person voted out and 4th member of jury is Joe. Jury says wow.


Next time on Survivor: Love brings everyone together but it's every man for themselves.

Previously on Survivor: 11th person voted out was Joe....7 are left, who will be voted out tonight? Night 30. Mike says he got blindsided again, he will get thru it he just doesn't know how. Ryan is in an awful spot right now. Ben tells Ryan and Chrissy that he had his plan and it didn't align with theirs. Chrissy is not happy. Chrissy will do this for her family.


 Day 31: Reward challenge time. They will be running in pairs with their loved ones. Hugs, tears and love all around. They draw a marble from a bag, if it matches family members marble they go back to camp for BBQ, and go on to the next round, if not they are out. Lauren and sister do not match, Mike and wife do not match, Ryan and Dad do not match, Ben and wife match. Chrissy and husband match. Ashley and dad do not match. Devon and mom do not match. Ben and Chrissy redraw. Ben and Wife do not match. Chrissy and husband match and they win Love. Chrissy picks Ryan, Mike and Ashely with their loved ones to go back to camp for BBQ.


 Back at camp the BBQ is amazing. Chrissy says she picked Ashley cuz she feels that Ashley would be easiest to break and pull over to their side. They talk about getting rid of Ben. Ashley wonders if that is the right way to go. Away from camp Ben makes a fake HII so others will look for it while he looks for the real one. Lauren finds 1/5 of the HII with a clue to the other 1/2 that will be at the next immunity challenge.


Day 33. Immunity challenge time. they will have their arms stretched out with fingertips on two discs if their discs drop they are out. Goo. Jeff tells them  it will hurt. Ryan says will? it already does. The discs have chimes attached. 15 min in and Ryan and Ben fidget. Lots of struggling. Ben recovers well. And Ben is the first one out, Chrissy drops, Ryan drops. Devon, Ashley, Mike and Lauren left. Lauren puts her discs down says her shoulders hurt bad. 30 min in...Ashley wiggles, Devon does the hula. Mike drops. Devon asks Ashley if they want to fight it? They are good friends. Devon drops his discs after making an agreement with Ashley that the winner gets shoulder massages. While Lauren was sitting down waiting for the winner, she picked up the other 1/2 of the HII. So Ashley wins immunity and Lauren gets HII.


Day 33, they congrat Ashley. Ashley talks to Lauren and Devon about getting rid of Ben. Devon says Chrissy. Ben sneaks up on them talking and they stop talking. They say its Chrissy going but Ben doesn't believe them. Ben goes to Ryan and they talk, Ben tells Ryan that Lauren has the HII and an extra vote. They talk about getting rid of Lauren. Ben tries to talk to Chrissy and she blows him off. They go off to talk....Chrissy is still not happy, Ben tells Chrissy about Laurens HII and extra vote. Chrissy isn't sure she can trust him. Mike talks to Chrissy about Lauren but have a plan B. Mike goes to Ashley and Devon about what Ben said.  Devon tells Lauren that Ben is trying to blindside her. Lauren gives the second half of the HII to Mike as a sign of her trust. Mike wonders if the survivor gods make her pay for it or not.


 Time  for TC. Jury comes in. (Devon got the shoulder massage from Ashley for giving up immunity.) Lauren asks Ben what part of the game was him telling ppl about her HII. Ben says he was gunning for Lauren, Lauren says she hopes he has a lot of ammunition. Lauren says she cant use the advantage tonight, she left it at camp and she has to have it with her. Ben says he took the fake HII out of play. Mike gets up and says he has waited 15 years to do this and he pitches the real HII into the fire pit.


Jeff asks Mike what the reasoning is for that and Mike replies that its a blessing and a curse. Ben says ppl at home are saying don't reveal you have an HII. Devon says Lauren with and extra vote is not as dangerous as Ben saying all kinds of things. Mike gets up and talks to Mike about getting rid of Ben. There are little groups talking about who to get out. They are ready to vote.


Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use the HII? Ben gets up and gives Jeff the real HII on himself. Votes: Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben...12th person voted out is Lauren. She says good luck guys. Devon says that was crazy. Jeff says it was a TC where everything was out in the open yet the thing that had the most power was the only secret.


Next time on Survivor: Bens big move breeds fear, but when all hope is lost a nemesis can turn the tide.

 Previously on Survivor: Ben's alliance was turning against him, at TC Ben causes chaos and Ben plays his HII sending Lauren to jury. After TC they say it was a crazy TC. Ben can't believe it he had the only vote. After Ben goes after water they all say Ben has to go, no one knew he had an HII.  Devon says if there is a Survivor God then that was a move by the Survivor Devil. Ben says he has a long hard road ahead of him. Day 34: Some are sleeping under the cover and some in the open on the beach. Ben gets up early, makes a fire and goes looking for a new HII as he gathers wood. As camp wakes up they figure out Ben is out searching for the HII.


Reward time: Divided into pairs and attached to a rope that goes thru obstacles then have to land 5 rings on a target. Playing for chopper ride to resort with lamb, chicken, lobster, cocktails, spend the night and sleep in a bed. Ben with Ashley, Chrissy with Devon and Devon with Mike. Goooo. Over and under wood...its pretty even with Ashly and Ben with a tiny lead. Ashley and Ben have an early lead. Chrissy and Devon right behind. Ashley and Ben onto the third section, they get tangled up. Ashley and Ben make it to the ring toss, Devon and Chrissy start on the ring toss. Mike and Ryan right behind. Devon gets second ring, Ben has 3, Devon has 3, Ryan gets 2, Devon gets 4. Devon makes 5...Devon and Chrissy win reward. They can pick one other person to join them...they pick Ryan. Ashley is shocked. Ben, Ashley and Mike head back to camp. Ben says this is perfect for him, he can look for HII and stir stuff up.


Day 34 camp. Mike is so pissed that they didn't take him on the trip. Ben uses the anger to his advantage. Ben tells Mike and Ashley that if they can use his vote to their advantage go for it. Ben doesn't get far with Ashley so he keeps looking for the HII. Mike says he has searched and cant find the HII, so there is no reason to follow Ben around.


 Ryan says the trip is one of the best moments in his life. They discuss getting Ben out next then Mike. Chrissy says they could be the F3. Devon says he feels like this is the perfect time to make a move, he would love to work with them and go to F3. Ryan would LOVE to go to F3 with them. Chrissy tells us that having Devon on F3 with her lets her get rid of the Ashley/Devon team. She says maybe good to get rid of Ashley first then Ben. She isn't sure.


Day 36, Immunity challenge time: Obstacle course to a sack of sand bags to release some ladder rungs, use balls to release more ladder rungs and raise their flag. Up and over the ladder/net wall. Everyone going all out. Chrissy brings up the rear at the first bag. Everyone hit their baskets and up the ladder. On to the second ladder and Devon is last. Everyone working on cog puzzle that will raise their flag. There are more spokes then they need to use but they will need to use every cog.


 All working carefully, they pick up the pace. Chrissy thinks she has it and she does. Chrissy wins...guaranteed a spot in the F5. Chrissy now has to decide who to vote out first...Ben or Ashley.


Back at camp...they call Chrissy the puzzle master. Mike says it was his fav challenge so far. Ben is upset he didn't win, he goes after water..aka...HII. The rest want to go to TC now and vote Ben. Ashley suggests splitting votes between Ben and Mike. Chrissy really wants Ashley out, convince Ben he is going so he will use the HII if he finds it but vote for Ashley. Chrissy will make a decision at TC. Ben finds a HII clue ....the HII is tied to the underside of the shelter. Good luck getting it.


Camp is talking about bagels, Ben is nervous about getting the HII. The sun is going down and its time for TC. Jury comes in. Ben says he is still the #1 target. Mike says Ben is the biggest threat but not the only threat. Devon says he has a F3, Ryan also has a F3...5 of them have a F3. Ben says they are at a point in the game where you have to make big moves. Devon and Ben have a small argument. Ben says lets get to the point and he pulls a HII out of his boot. He uses his hands and makes chrrrr sound. Devon says just because its around his neck doesn't mean he will play it. Ben asks Ashley if she wants to go back to camp with him and points to Mike. Ben had the HII to Jeff early.


 Mike says its just whose plan just got messed up. Ben says he just turned the 5 against themselves, mission accomplished. Time to vote: Time to tally the vote: anyone else want to play an HII? nope Vote: Mike, Ashley, Ashley, Ashley, 13 person voted out and 6th person in jury is Ashley. Chrissy has a happy look on her face. Ashley says good luck guys. Jeff congrats them on F5, making it to F3 will be even harder.


 Next time on the season finale of Survivor: Only 5 are left, who will out last all the rest and claim the title of sole survivor.
