Survivor 36: Ghost Island show recaps

Recommended Posts

February 28

Episode 1


Welcome to Survivor: Ghost Island. We see clips of past castaways making some big mistakes. The new cast of 20 will face the same challenges that will change their lives. This season there is a twist...the grave yard for bad Survivor decisions. This time for the first time ever they are bringing back the actual idols and advantages that were misplayed in previous season. They must find a way to remove the curse or they will have the same fate as it had before.  


Two boats land on a sandy beach. Survivor requires tough decisions every day, one bad decisions can haunt you forever. Kellyn says one of her worst fears is making the worst decisions in the game. Orange buffs select one person to represent their tribe. Brendon volunteers. Purple puffs choose Chris. They have to pick one person to run and unknown challenge. Brandon chooses Michael and Laurel to do the puzzle part. Chris chooses Sabastian and Desiree for the puzzle part.


Challenge time: They have to run thru an obstacle course looking for keys, when they have all 3 keys the puzzle solver will use them to unlock pieces and put a puzzle together. Reward is.... For the losing tribe, a pot, a machete, rice (only a little bit) and fishing stuff. For the winning tribe they also gets shelter making kit, eggs, and flint. They have the options to forfeit the challenge but will lose the shelter kit. Ready......Goooooo


Both guys have first key. Purple in a slight lead, orange takes the lead. Both guys slowing down. Both have their last key but are having trouble getting thru the course. Purple gets their puzzle unlocked first. Its a slider puzzle. A timer started where they have to decide if they forfeit or continue with the puzzle. Purple pulls the lever to forfeit, they will get fishing gear but no shelter stuff. Orange will get shelter kit, eggs and flint. Chris says its better to get some then a tiny amount.


Domenick is not happy with Chris' choice to pull the lever. At Malolo: they introduce themselves, Michael says he is 23 but tells us he is only 18. They get right to work making shelter. Stephanie says call her Gonzalez. Donathan is so excited to be playing Survivor (he has subtitles) At Naviti they introduce themselves and get right to work on shelter. Sabastian is renamed Sea Bass. Chris and Sea Bass agree to go to merge together. They suggest Dom goes first.


Day 2 Malolo: Jacob loses his shoes to the tide. Jacob is afraid he or Donathan will go out first. Jacob goes looking for the HII. At camp they all know he is going for it. Camp decides he can go first. Jacob pours the rice into a sock looking for the HII, its not there. Naviti day 2: Wendell is a furniture designing and he makes a crab net. Wendell goes to Dom to tell him his name is being bounced around.


Day 3, Immunity Challenge time: they will race across a net bridge and work together to pull a sledge carrying puzzle pieces, put the puzzle together and win immunity. Naviti is also playing for fire. Losing tribe will send someone to Ghost Island. they are neck and neck getting across the net and getting the ropes down to pull the sledge. Purple has a slight lead. Orange loses the pieces out of the sledge and have to put them back in. The sledge can only hold 3 pieces at a time. Both tribes working on getting their second set of pieces to the end of the line. Purple has a slight lead.


Orange catches up and both are working to put the puzzle together. Both are getting close to finishing. Purple thinks they got it and they do! Naviti gets flint and the idol. Jacob (Malolo) says they are the best tribe of all time. Purple sends Jacob from Orange tribe to Ghost Island, he will not go to TC and can not be voted out.


Jacob takes a boat ride to GI. There are a lot of original survivor relics, he discovers that they are the sniffers. There is sign that says break the urn, he gets a clue that says Follow the fire. He follows it to a sign that says "I'll wager a secret advantage if you'll wager your next vote. If you win, you'll have power in the game. If you lose, you will not vote next tribal." There are 3 tubes, one with a lock on it. If he picks the tube with the key he gets the advantage. He take the one on the left and gets the key, opens the lock and sees "This is the authentic legacy advantage. Sierra found this advantage on day one and kept it a secret." Sierra reads it for us, guaranteed immunity but only where there are 13 or 6 ppl left. Sierra told about it and Sarah voted her out. The advantage goes on..."but you can restore its power by willing it to someone else on the other tribe. Choose wisely and this could be the beginning of a new alliance. Choose poorly and you could end up like Sierra." Jacob choose to give it to Morgan.


Malolo Day 3, they talk about the puzzle. Donathan puts Gonzalez' name out there. Gonzalez throws Donathans name out. The girls weigh the pros and cons for each. The first vote is huge.


Time for TC. They all grab a torch and get their fire. Jeff asks Stephanie why she is smiling. She says she is on Survivor. They talk about Jacob. They want to keep the tribe strong. Donathan feels the heat. Stephanie say there is physical strength and social strength. Michael says alliances haven't been formed yet. Gonzalez says you can miss out on one convo and things change. She stands up and talks the guys, they are all whispering accept to Donathan.


Time to vote. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use an HII? nope. Votes: Donathan, Gonzalez, Gonzalez, Gonzalez, Gonzalez, first person voted out of Survivor: Ghost Island is Stephanie Gonzalez. She says sad.


At Naviti camp they are sleeping but Dom is awake, he has a bad feeling so he goes looking for an HII. He is here to play, we'll sleep when we're dead. He finds an HII (in the dark). He waits till daylight to read it. "this is the authentic HII that Andrea was voted out with in Survivor's 26th season. On day 33 Andrea had a HII and what she thought was a trustworthy alliance. But she was wrong. Andrea became the first girl to be voted out with an idol in her pocket. This tainted the idol and has been haunted for five years but still retains its original power. Can you reverse the curse?" He puts the HII in his bag and buries the paper


Purple supposes there are HII at GI so they have to be careful who they send. Morgan looks in her bag and finds the Advantage from Jacob. Morgan says she has a really big mouth and will need a staple gun to keep it quiet. At GI Jacob decides he will bend the truth some to tell the tribe. He is making a fake HII. He is not lying, he is basically telling the truth.


Malolo Day 4. They eat sea cucumbers when Jacob comes back. He notices that someone is missing. Gonzalez. He tells them about finding the urns and then shows them his fake HII. He says he is going to play it at the next TC, he doesn't want to be an HII hoarder. He feels he should be ok. Chris doesn't believe him, there is no way he (Jacob) left the note that came with the HII at GI. Stephanie says she as big a super fan as Jacob is and she will use him to get far in the game.


At Naviti. Dom shows off his weight lifting technique. Dom wants to play the game with Chris. Chris says alright. Chris asks if he found an HII, he says no one has looked for it yet. Dom decides to make a fake HII and wrap it up with the paper from the real one, he shows it to Chris and says he wants to take him to the end. Chris doesn't trust him.


Day 6, immunity challenge time: They will race so a seres of obstacles (in the water) and release buoys with balls, shoot the balls into a hoop, first to fill the hoop wins. winner also gets chairs and cleaning supplies. Purple in the lead, Orange slightly behind. Purple has the second set of buoys. James struggles to go down 8 feet to the next buoys. Purple starts to shoot. James pops up again and asks Donathan to try it, he says he cant. Donathan dives in and gives it a try. Purple has one ball in the hoop. Donathan lets loose the buoys for Orange. Purple gets second ball, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh. Orange starts shooting. Purple shoots and gets 8th ball in to win Immunity and Reward.


Donathan says never in his wildest dreams did he think he could do that. Purple sends Donathan to GI. Jacob was hoping he would go back, he is going to use his fake HII to take control of the game.


GI: Donathan takes a look around and finds the sniffers and the urns to smash, it says "Nope not today, no game for you." He says its a chance for him to prove himself to himself. He makes fire and cooks rice. He came out here to win.


Malolo Day 6, James says sorry, its all on him, he choked. They talk about how James couldn't go down 3 feet in the water, they also talk about Jacob. If they can make Jacob feel rock solid he will hold on to the HII they can get him out. Stephanie flirts a bit with Jacob and then talks about Michael being a threat.


Jacob trusts Stephanie and tells her the HII is fake and that he gave the advantage to Morgan. Jacob wants to get rid of Michael. Stephanie goes to Laurel about Jacob wanting to vote out Michael. Laurel thinks about it.


Time for TC. Jacob gets his torch. James says today he did one of the worst things an athlete could do, he let his team down. Jacob says he told them everything about GI. He showed the HII he found. James says Jacob lessened the information imbalance about GI. Jacob says he is a neurotic indoor kid, he has a dream to get to the end of the game and to do that he needs to face his fears. Jacob says this game is starting to be about alliances and friends. Brandon says he doesn't think its all about strength anymore.


Time to vote, there is a bit of whispering. We see Jacob vote for Michael. Time to tally the votes. Any want to use HII? nope. Votes: Michael, James, Jacob, James, Jacob, Jacob, second person voted out is Jacob. Jacob says Oh, boy oh boy. Jeff says they are 2 for 2 and down 2, something has to give in Survivors greatest tribe.


Next time on Survivor: A surprise twist catches everyone off guard (as Jeff tells them to drop their buffs) and GI is back in play.

He has to bury this tears around camp, he thinks of his mom (she has MS) and it makes him stronger. He lets out all his negative energy and reboots himself.

Angela says she also stepped out and felt pressured, she will do what's right for her.  Jeff says you don't know what to trust at TC. Libby is asked how do you know when someone is lying to you. Libby says its just a game. Everyone is lying, has lied or will lie at some time, its part of the game

Orange gets a point (2-1 Naviti). Girls are up next and its a battle for the ring. Naviti inches their way towards the pole. Jeff says watch the neck. The girls are really going at it. Naviti almost touches...nope. They got it that time. Naviti wins rewards. Naviti chooses to go to rocks for who to send to GI....Kellyn gets the white rock and will go to GI. Kellyn says she is scared but this is where she was meant to be.


At GI Kellyn breaks an urn and gets Game on...follow the fire. She is scared. She decides to not wager her vote against a chance at an advantage. She has been blindsided in real life so many times, if she hadn't trusted her gut she wouldn't be on Survivor today. At Naviti they eat PBJ sandwiches. Chris asks what happened to get Morgan out. Chris jumps in with the Malolo to go against Dom. Donathan talks with Laurel and she says she wants to keep Wendell. Dom tells Laurel he does have an HII. They all talk about getting rid of Chris.

First tribe to get all 5 in wins. Go! Orange is to the cage first, and the get up and over, get the door open while Purple takes a lot of time on getting the door open. Purple gets it open as Orange makes it to shore with the crate.


 Purple makes it shore and closes the gap. Orange gets the crate to their platform while Purple gets hung up. Orange has started tossing the balls up onto the skinny trench. Orange gets 2 then 3 balls. Purple finally gets to their platform. Orange knocks a ball off and then makes it back up there again. Purple gets one ball. Orange gets their 4th, 2 for Purple.

 Previously on Survivor: Malolo went to TC where Michael bluffed about his HII. Michael played it wrong causing Brendon to go home. 16 are left, who will be voted out tonight. Malolo night 12, Bradley felt he was toast at TC. Michael apologizes to them and hopes there are no hard feelings.


Day 13. Time for reward challenge, they have to leap over tables, dismantle a pile of sandbags showing a lever, the lever will release small sandbags they have to throw a spinning things, the spinners will release a flag, first to get all 3 flags up win coffee and pastries. Go! teams are neck and neck over the tables, big guys on both teams dismantle the big sandbags. Orange pull lever first, Purple right behind. Both teams tossing bags to the bin beside where they will get to shoot.


Purple starts to toss bags at the spinners.  Purple gest first flag up and the get their second flag. Chris is shooting for Purple and gets all three flags up. Malolo wins reward. Chris tells everyone he used to pitch baseball in college. They choose to have Naviti pick rocks....Steph gets the white rock, she will return to camp for next immunity challenge. Chris tells us he is a diamond in the rough.


At GI Steph is at the very bottom in her tribe and she is worried about being separated from her tribe. She breaks and urn and gets Nope not today. Steph says she will take a deep breath and reconnect to herself. She believes in herself. Day 13, Malolo camp, they eat their pastries and coffee. Donathan is sadden as this reminds him of his grandma. He tells us he takes care of his grandma, she had two strokes, her care is now on his disabled mom while he is here. Laurel gives him a hug. Chris knows how it is as his mom is now in an assisted living home.


 Donathan now feels pulled in the middle as he has a new bond with Chris.


Day 14, Immunity Challenge time. They will race across a floating bridge carrying a body board attached to a rope, when they get across the bridge they will grab a bahg and have the reset of the tribe pull them back to shore. Tey have to get 3 bags, in the bags are numbered tiles, they use the numbers to unlock a key to unlock a slide puzzle. First tribe to finish their puzzle wins. Purple has slight lead and gets their first bag. Purple pulls Wendell back to shore. Chelsea for Orange is on shore and both teams have their next person on the bridge.


 Orange makes up a lot of time but then loses it when Desi falls off the board. Its back to neck and neck. Purple takes the lead again and has their third bag, Chelsea for Orange falls off the bridge. Purple gets their 3rd bag back to shore and can start work on the combination lock. Chelsea falls off the body board but makes it back on. Both tribes working the locks, Purple gets the key out first and opens the puzzle. Orange is right behind them. Both working on puzzle.


Both tribes getting hints from peanut gallery. Purple thinks they have it and they do. Naviti wins Immunity. Malolo will go to TC. Kellyn is crying, she feels like she let everyone down. Kellyn says either Steph, Michael or Jenna are home.


Malolo camp: Michael is bummed, he says its every man for themselves, he doesn't want to see one of the girls go but he is willing to write eithers name down. The 5 Naviti (on Malolo) have the advantage. Jenna tries to work her way in to Sebatian by offering to braid his hair. Stephs name is tossed back and forth. Steph talks to Bradley and promises not to throw him under the bus at TC. Bradley goes back to camp and suggests Michael and people agree. Michael tells Bradley he is loyal.


 Michael cries to us, he wants to accomplish things as young as he can, he really wants it. The Naviti 5 talk about Steph again,  Desi looks thru Stephs bag and finds no HII or clues.


Time for TC. Jeff asks Kellyn if its still the feeling that one of the Maloto 3 original and she says yes. Bradley says there is some concern that Steph got an advantage at GI. Sebastian says they have to get rid of one of the 3. Michael says he can help win challenges. Kellyn says there are a lot of ways to look at strength. Steph says this survivor journey is about this being her dream and wanting to live this out for so many years. She wants to keep having this experience, she feels she is playing this for her kids, she fears letting them down.


Jenna says she has always had this face up, its hard to make alliances, she is letting people in and wants to get better at it. Sebastian says it sucks to write anyone's name down. Michael says he is trying to show loyalty and hopes he can go far. Desi says tonight they have a good reason to vote out one of the 3 and it will show.


Time to vote. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use and HII? Nope. Votes: Desi, Steph, Steph, Steph, Steph, 5th person voted out is Stephanie. Jenna tears up. Steph says bye guys.


Next time on Survivor: The battle lines are drawn, the targets are clear, but a bomb goes off (we hear Jeff say...drop your buffs.)

Previously on Survivor, at the Naviti tribe there was a war between Chris and Dominique and the original Naviti were turning on each other. The Malolo tribe was facing tribal council and the original Naviti were a united front against Jenna, Michael, and Stephanie. At tribal council, the Naviti alliance stayed strong leaving Michael and Jenna fighting to stay alive. 15 are left, who will be voted out tonight?


Jeff calls both tribes in and Naviti gets the first look at the new Malolo tribe. Naviti has been on a winning streak and Malolo on a losing streak, let’s see what happens now. Everyone drop your buffs, we are switching tribes. Jeff asks Michael how he feels right now and he says from a game point of view it’s his saving grace. He says maybe it’s a bright light at the end of the tunnel for him and Jenna.


Jeff asks James what’s happening right now from a game point of view. James says they’ve survived this first phase of the game and it’s a race to the merge and beyond and based on what happens today could be critical in everyone’s game play. Jeff hands out the new buffs.


They open their buffs and they discover there is a third color. They are switching from two tribes to three tribes. Orange and Purple are still in play, but now there is a green tribe. The tribes head to their new mats and introductions are going around. Dom says Chris was still after him so getting away from him is such a relief and the ball is in his court and he can decide which way the game goes now.


Jeff says what a flip flop! There are now three original Naviti and two original Malolo on all three tribes. Jeff says Bradley at this point it’s really tough to rely on purple or orange because now there’s been enough inter-connecting between people that you don’t really know where anybody stands. Bradley says yeah, do the original divisions stand or are there new things happening? He looks forward to finding out and seeing where everything stands.


Jeff asks Donathon if this is good for him or bad or neutral? Donathon laughs and says he doesn’t know. He’s never met two of them before and he looks forward to seeing what they are all about. He just doesn’t know what’s going to happen.


Jeff says one of the things that comes with a new tribe is a new beach Sebastian? Sebastian says yeah, you have to start over but they have some strength on their team and he doesn’t think it will be a problem.


Jeff says here’s the facts: Turning points are where the strong players shine and the weak players fade. Regardless how you’re feeling right now, your odds of getting to the end with only 15 people left are better now than they were when the game started. Brand new start to Survivor Ghost Island. The game has changed again.


The green tribe reaches their new team flag and they are called Yanuya. The green tribe is Sebastian, Chris, Jenna, Wendell, and Laurel.  They have fishing gear, rice, and a pot. They talk about they have skills in every category. Jenna says it’s a bit of a shock knowing they are going to start from scratch, but she’s ready to be on a tribe where she can win a reward.


Wendell hands a shell to Sebastian and he gives him a hug and thanks him. Sebastian says he collects reminders and Wendell brought it back with him and he loves him for that. Sebastian says he wasn’t very close with Wendell because Wendell was working with Dom and Sebastian was working with Chris, but he has been that buddy who was never his buddy.


Chris goes up to Wendell and says he’s glad to be off that island and Wendell was just next to the wrong person. Wendell says he was so ready to drop his buff because he was tired of managing two dominant egos. He was disappointed to be separated from Dom, but he was excited to be with Chris because of his winning track record, but he doesn’t look forward to Chris bragging about himself.


Sebastian is talking Laurel and says she used to be a volleyball player? She says yeah, she used to be and Sebastian says he has played sand box on the beach and Chris says he’s played volleyball too. Chris talks about playing in a few places and his team won a tournament in Chicago. Chris tells us when you have an athletic and charismatic guy like him, it’s exhausting. Some people can chill and sit around and let the game evolve where he is thinking ahead and developing bonds because he has an X on his back since day 1.


Chris and Laurel are talking and Chris says he looks at himself as an entrepreneur. Even though he’s not investing in a million things right now, he sees himself investing in him. Laurel tells him she could see him being a motivational speaker. Laurel tells us she’s having a hard time biting her tongue around Chris. He’s a guy that likes to hear himself talk but she’s trying to find a way to fit in and get along with them.


Chris says he models and he hasn’t told anyone except Livi. Chris says he hasn’t told anyone because people think models are self-absorbed and dumb, things that might not be “beneficiary” to him in a tribe setting. He doesn’t tell people, but he’s singed in Chicago, Miami, and New York. Laurel says it’s nice to have him because he’s such a competitor, but the tribe is starting to get rubbed the wrong way by him. Jenna and Laurel are talking about it getting old. Laurel says they are ok with Chris just digging his own grave and as long as they win great. But if they do lose, Laurel thinks Chris will be in a world of trouble.


We’re at Malolo with Michael, James, Desiree, Angela, and Kellyn. Michael says he is happy with this five and James says he thinks they have a mix of all different skill sets. Desiree says switching up the tribes again is crazy. But it’s all good. At their old tribe the Naviti were sticking together and voting Malolo out one by one, and now it’s her, Ang, and Kellyn still have the numbers. The only question mark is Angela because she’s been on the same tribe with James for a while now.


Angela lays out the battle between Chris and Dominique and James supports her and they basically give the struggle on the old tribe between the two sides. Kellyn says it turns out Dom and Chris couldn’t just take a deep breath and get along for a few votes and keep Naviti strong and instead they tried to vote out Angela. Kellyn gets a feeling in the pit of her stomach this could be trouble. Angela tells what happened after the vote and how mad she was. Michael says he thought it was just him and James and they were going to be in trouble, but now he finds out Angela got stabbed in the back by her own tribe and she’s angry. Michael says this is huge, there are cracks in the Naviti group and maybe him and James can work with her.


Michael and James talk and he says he was in the hot seat. James asks what he thinks about Kellyn and Desiree and Michael says they are unbreakable and you will not believe how tight the five are. James says not only is he back on the bottom and he’s not that close with Michael, but he thinks they are still on the same page because they are the only two Malolo. James says they saved her that tribal council when Morgan got voted out and hopefully she’ll feel indebted to them, but they’ll have their work cut out for them.


At the Naviti camp, we have Donathon, Dominic, Bradley, Livi, and Chelsea. Bradley says coming back to the Naviti beach is like going to a resort after living in a slum. Bradley from a game standpoint Dom is a good ally and Chelsea has been voting with him so old Naviti has the advantage, but there are a lot of unknowns coming in. Chelsea is getting emotional because she says it feels like home. Chelsea talks about being drained after losing four challenges in a row.


Dom says he’s having a moment of relief because he doesn’t have Chris on his tail now. He says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders. Dom says he doesn’t have to play defense anymore and he feels like he’s in control because there are three original Naviti and he feels safe with them but they could play him. Dom says no more training wheels out here, time to get dirty.


Dom says Livi is a devil in an angel’s body and he knows what game she is playing. Dom says she has to go almost as bad as Chris has to go. Dom talks to Bradley about Livi. Dom calls her Parvati 2.0. Bradley says Dom warned him that Livi is dangerous, so if they go to tribal she is the better option to get rid of. Bradley says they have Chelsea. Bradley feels like he’s better than he thought he was, or at least as good as he thought because he’s fantastic and playing an A+ game.


Immunity is back up for grabs! We now have two idols for the two tribes safe from the vote. For today’s challenge, one person will be your caller and the rest of the tribe will be blindfolded. Using only verbal commands, the caller will lead the blindfolded pairs to retrieve three bags of puzzle pieces. Once you have all three bags, the caller will then lead one pair of blindfolded tribe members to solve the puzzle. The first two tribes to get their puzzle finished will win immunity.


Callers will be: Desiree for Malolo, Wendell for Yanuya, and Dom for Naviti. All tribes are on their way. Wendell has guided Laurel and her partner to the first bag and they start working on it. Kellyn is working on her first bag as well. Desiree is screaming at Michael and. Kellyn has released the first bag and Donathon and Chelsea are working on the wrong bag. Chelsea and Michael are fighting over the bag and Michael gets it because it’s their bag.


Dom is yelling directions to Donathon and Chelsea. Naviti still does not have a bag, Malolo has two bags, and Yanuya have one bag. Malolo are in the lead and they have all three bags. Desiree is leading them to the puzzle tables. Naviti is working on their third bag. Malolo has a huge lead and they are at the puzzle table. Yanuya has all three bags and Wendell leads their tribe out. Chelsea and Donathon are on their way back and Chelsea hits a post hard. Dom is now leading Naviti to the puzzle tables.


When they get to the puzzle tables Wendell has forgotten a bag at the start and has to run all the way back to get it. Dom is guiding his tribe to start their puzzle. Jeff notes that Malolo has made no progress on their puzzle. Wendell is quickly making up time as he has their puzzle started. Desiree who couldn’t get the puzzle done on day one is now leading the puzzle on day 13. Yanuya is back in it and they are in the lead.


Naviti is competing against Malolo now. Malolo has gotten some momentum. Jeff says it has come down to communication. Wendell has Yanuya close to winning the challenge and they have it. It’s down to Naviti and Malolo. Naviti is getting closer and so is Malolo as both are down to two pieces. Desiree is yelling frantically and Dom is yelling as well and they think they have it. Naviti has the puzzle and they win immunity. Malolo has lost and is going back to tribal council.


Michael says that challenge was a complete and utter failure and he’s going to his fifth of six tribal councils. He says this season is about erasing curses, not creating new ones.


At the Malolo camp it’s a somber mood and Desiree apologizes. Kellyn is emotional and Angela shakes her head. Desiree says the challenge today is the worst moment of her life. She feels like she failed and she feels like the biggest loser. Kellyn talks to Angela and Desiree about voting out James. Desiree says it’s either James or her. Desiree says because of her one of them is going home, but she’s still a player in this game. Desiree says no one has a connection to James and even though she feels like it should be her, James is going home.


James and Michael are talking and James says Desiree choked. Michael agrees that it wasn’t Kellyn, it was all Des. James needs to talk to Angela. James says they are in a tough spot, but sometimes you’re dealt a bad hand and you have to make it work. James talks to Angela and she says it seems maybe Malolo is cursed. James tells us they moved to South Korea when he was 2 and when he turned 16 he chose to come back to the U.S. and he had to adapt to a new life, a new language, and learn how to connect with people and that prepared him for this moment.


Angela tells James that Kellyn and Desiree do have a close relationship and she’s probably on the bottom. She says look what happened last time. James says if she works with him he promises she will not be on the bottom of anything. Angela says she does trust James and this game is all about relationships. She talks about her military experience and her personal struggles and being alone. She was raised to focus on everyone else’s happiness and now she’s focused on her. She asks if he and Michael are on the same line and James says yes. Angela says they definitely have to move forward with strength. Angela would like to stay loyal to Naviti, but she has to look out for her first and decide what will get her further in the game.


Angela and Kellyn are talking and Kellyn says when they were together with the old Naviti on the Malolo tribe they stuck together and there was no question about it. Angela says what are your thoughts now and Kellyn says she’s hoping she wants to work with her. Kellyn thought Angela would be willing to work with her and Desiree and that makes her super nervous. She could see Angela wanting to save James and come after her or Desiree.  Kellyn says they have been together the whole time and she knows her and Des will vote together and she’d love Angela to work with them. Kellyn feels more uncomfortable going into this tribal than she has the whole game.


Kellyn tells us she has never 100% trusted Angela because she’s all over the place and she doesn’t know if Angela understands what’s going on in her own head. Someone like that is just dangerous. She prays to God this works out and tonight will tell her if Naviti has finally broken down, if it’s about orange and purple or if everything has turned brown.


Time for tribal council. Jeff says we all know the headline, Malolo may be one of the worst tribes in terms of challenge performance. They may never win a survivor challenge as a tribe. He asks Desiree how it feels inside when you’re down and going to tribal after tribal after tribal. Desiree says when things aren’t great you get an opportunity to reflect who you are and she feels like today was her responsibility. She says what makes a winner is how you get back up after you fall.


Jeff says James felt responsibility for a loss and he got votes and he felt he deserved them. Is it fair to vote someone out for blowing an immunity challenge? James says that’s tough because he was given a second chance and it depends what people prioritize their vote on.


Jeff asks Kellyn the ability to win has to go through their head when making these decisions, because if you don’t win then you won’t make the merge. Kellyn says it just feels awful and it’s coming into all of their minds and she thinks they all want to win.


Jeff asks Angela where she weighs in on this because no one wants to criticize someone who is giving their best. Angela says absolutely, and if you have that strength great. But if you step up to the plate you can’t strike out because they are expecting you to hit a home run.


Jeff says Desiree, it can’t feel good to hear that. Desiree says it doesn’t feel good, but if they are thinking ahead and the future and strength is not something they want to go up against in individual challenges.


Jeff tells James Desiree is throwing it right back to the group and saying maybe you need strength, but it’s a long game and there are a lot of layers to it. What do you read into that? James says Desiree has a point, but they feel like they are so close to the merge and they know how to get there.


Jeff notes that Michael is nodding and says does he think they should just get to the merge and then decide who to vote out for strength? Michael says of course, you have to have the big picture in mind but if you don’t get close then what’s the point anyway? He wants to win and he knows everyone here wants to win and to get to the merge you have to keep the tribe strong.


Kellyn cuts in and says the other part of this, which is crazy they made it this far into tribal council and it hasn’t come up is there are three original Naviti members and two original Malolo members. You start to play the game in your head and you look at the math and it’s not lost on her that long term relationships are just as important as brute strength.


Jeff asks James how concerned is he that old tribal alliances are what flips the vote tonight? James says it looks dangerous for him and Michael, but when it comes to those old tribe lines, which are random anyway, you can’t be so myopic. You have to look at different types of bonds with different people. James says crossing the aisles to the other side is pretty critical he thinks.


Jeff says Angela, that’s really interesting what James said that the tribes were random and they don’t bleed Naviti or Malolo, it’s just a buff, it opens up when and how you can make a relationship that could last. It doesn’t have to be day one. Angela says absolutely. Her being on Naviti was just a chance and every one of her original tribe voted against her. Malolo didn’t directly save her, but indirectly that’s the reason she is sitting here today.


Jeff says curious. Just a question for all of you with a quick answer. In life typically, do you lead with your head or your heart? Angela answers head. Michael says heart. Desiree says head. James says head. Kellyn says to her, her gut is the perfect mix of her head and her heart. When you find and follow what your gut is telling you, it’s because you let your head speak a little bit and your heart speak a little bit. Find where that settles in and make your decision from there. Jeff says 36 seasons into Survivor and he’s still being taught how the game is played by the players and he loves it. It’s time to vote!


Jeff will tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol now is the time to play it. No one moves. Time to read the votes. First vote: James. Desire. One vote each. James. Sixth person voted out of Ghost Island…James. That’s enough. James is stunned and looks down at Angela. He looks back and says great blindside and it’s been a true pleasure playing with them and best of luck.


Well, your head, your heart, and ultimately your gut led you to vote out one of the strongest members of this tribe. Time will tell if you made the right call.


Next time on Survivor: There's fire at Malolo. We see Desiree say they should burn the Malolo flag because it's bad juju and Michael says he could be the next to go but there could be light at the end of the tunnel. And fury at Naviti. We see Bradley say the test for him is to not be a total jerk and then we see Dom saying he's a nasty son of a gun. Donathon says the fire in his body was raging!

Previously on Survivor: Malolo lost their 5th immunity challenge and sent James home. 14 are left, who will be voted out tonight? Malolo tribe, Michael thinks he could be next to he goes looking for an HII. The girls know he is looking...and he finds Ozzy's authentic fake HII. The only 3 players to  touch the fake HII have been voted out but no knows that all this time the fake HII has been growing power on GI and is now a real HII.


Reward challenge time: they have to pull on a rope that suspends a disc, they have to stack blocks on the disc to spell reward. Reward is Steak, cab bobs and grill, second winner gets chicken cab bobs. The winners get to send one from either losing tribe to GI. Green takes the lead and Purple drops their blocks after placing the R. Green is down to their R...and loses them all. Orange is now in the lead...and lose it. Purple is now in the lead.


 Green in the lead now, Orange ties it up. Purple only has to get back and they get it...they get steak. Green puts their last block on. Orange drops their block. Green also wins reward. Malolo loses once again. Naviti has to choose someone to go to GI. They send Kellyn to GI, she will return in time for the immunity challenge.


 Day 18 GI: Kellyn walks in and breaks an urn...game on, follow the fire. She follows the fire and finds the game of chance, 2 of the 3 containers hold something. She says she has to risk it for the biscuit. She takes the left one and gets an advantage, she gets Sarah' steal a vote she used to get Michaela out. It no longer holds the power to steal a vote but she can use it as an extra vote.


Malolo is proud of their tribe for winning. Brad gets frustrated while trying to make fire. The others get together and talk about getting rid of Brad. Yanuya is also proud to win and they work together to get their ca bobs going. They sing Happy Birthday to Wendell's GF Nicole. Wendell goes looking for firewood and the HII. Wendell finds a clue to an HII, goes looking and finds a huge necklace. The necklace that Eric gave away to Natalie and then got voted out...however it has been on GI and is now a full HII.


Malolo Day 19. They are starving. Desi is upset they are losing so much, they feel cursed they cut down the flag and burn it in half. Immunity time: Malolo tells Jeff they burned the flag to get rid of the curse. Jeff takes back the 2 halves of the Idol. For the challenge they will race out to floating platform, jump off and retrieve some rings, they will then toss the rings onto poles, first to 6 wins. Green out to a quick lead. Green and purple have their first set of rings. Green out to get their second set of rings.


Purple is in second followed quickly by Orange. Green headed out to the platform where they will toss the rings. Purple right behind them, Orange right behind. Green gets one ring on, Purple gets a ring, Green gets 2 and 3, 4, 5. Orange gets 1, Purple gets 2 and 3. Purple gets 3 and 4. Green wins! Orange comes in second with Naviti losing. Naviti will go to TC. Libby tells us that Brad has been disrespecting everyone on the tribe and he needs to be voted out now.


Day 19 at Navitit they all tell us that they don't like Brad. Brad talks about getting rid of Libby. Libby is afraid she will be voted out even tho everyone is saying get rid of Brad. Chelsea is up in the air about which one. Dom is now up in the air too.


Time for TC. Dom says the original tribe are still a factor to an extent but they may all work together. Brad says you wouldn't know there was a divide they get along so well. Donathan says they are not really one big happy family. Dom says it still stings about Morgan going home. Libby says it felt right and still feels right. Brad says he will argue about the color of the sky, its who he is. He feels he isn't being argumentative around camp. Chelsea says you always have to be aware of your behavior.


 Time to vote. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use an HII? Nope. Votes: Libby, Brad,  Brad, 7th person voted out...Brad. He says good luck in the rest of the game. He walks off in disbelief. Jeff says based on tonight tribal bonds ar3e weakening and with only 4 people it could be interesting.


Next time on Survivor: Three tribes come together (its Merge time) but a war rages on.

Previously on Survivor: Dom is in control of the vote and at TC Brad was sent home. 13 are left who will be going home tonight. We see the castaways on two boats headed to the merge. They get the merge celebration. New black buffs. Dom says he cherishes the new relationships he has built and hopes to strengthen the old ones. Dom still wants to get Chris out. Chris says he ate so much, he is laying in the shelter fixing his buff and it feels funny, he finds a tag that's says shh. He follows the directions to a clue. The HII is on GI, a boat will come for him in the night to take him there. He worries a bit about getting caught.


 Malolo talk about getting rid of a Naviti. Dom comes to Chris and Wendell, Dom says he would like to work with them temporarily and later they can destroy each other. Wendell points to 3 people on the beach and Chris cant respond. Wendell say then they cant trust him. Chris leaves and Dom/Wendell say Chris is the next out.


Lavita Night 20. All are sleeping when Chris quietly sneaks away from camp and meets the boat for GI. At GI  he gets a torch and follows the fire trail. He finds JT's authentic HII, JT left the HII at camp and was voted out w/o it. This HII has lost some of its potency and only good at the next TC.....however if he is willing to wager his vote at next TC he can increase its power, choose the correct bamboo ((he has 10 bamboos) each time and he could increase it by one TC each time (up to 5 TC's). He goes for it.....1st one, he gets (2 TC's) Next bamboo he gets a no vote but he can still use the HII at one of the next 2 TC's.


 Day 21 Dom says Chris is cranky and tired and it irks Dom. Chris tells some others that Dom has an HII. Desi says the only way to get rid of it is to blindside Dom. Laurel says the beach is not big enough for Chris and Dom. Jenna and Libby say that Chris doesn't lie to them.


Day 22: Immunity challenge time. Jeff unveils the new individual immunity necklace. They have to balance a statue on a vertical pole on their head while balancing on a beam. Last one to drop wins. Jenna and Donathan is out, Desi is out. Angela is out. Time to move down the beam, its getting smaller. Sebastian drops. 20 minutes into comp and they move to the final smallest part of the beam. Dom is out, Michael and Chris out, Laurel is out, Wendell is out. None of them made the transition to the small part. Chelsea is out, its Kellyn vs Libby now. Wind picks up a bit. Libby is out. Kellyn wins first individual immunity. Kellyn is still nervous about the vote, this will be the vote where lines are truly drawn in the sand.


Back at camp....they congrat Kellyn and Chris has to make a plan. He all but Dom and Wendell to the well for a powwow. Desi says split the vote. Chris's plan is if Dom uses the HII then Wendell goes home, if the doesn't then Dom goes home. Dom and Wendell notice everyone is gone and will try to get everyone lined up against Chris. Wendell tells Dom he has an HII too. Donathan talks to Dom and Laurel about voting Chris. Libby says there is a war going on and people need to pick a side. The Naviti girls talk about getting rid of Libby.  Dom says this is the night to take Chris out. Dom can also play his advantage tonight. Chris says there is blood in the water lets go for the kill.


Time for TC. Chris gets his fire for the first time. (its his first time at TC) Donathan says he finally got to meet everyone. Sebastian says a lot of things are based on gut. Dom tells Jeff about this and Chris's relationship from day one. Dom pulls out the fake HII and puts it on to show Chris he has it. Chris says Dom says he did show him the HII but they tried to vote his alliance. Wendell pipes up. Chris says its a show down and he is fine with that. Wendell tells Jeff about the mass water talk that he and Dom were not invited to.


Dom says he is scared tonight. Kellyn says the first merge vote is crazy and she is so glad her name wont come out of that jar tonight. Chris says trusting your gut instant is it. Time to vote. Chris plays his no vote. Dom votes for Chris. Wendell votes for Chris.


Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use and HII? Dom stand up and gives Jeff his advantage where he gets to play immunity, he is playing it on himself. Votes: Chris, Chris, Libby, Libby, Chris, Chris, Chris, Chris, 8th person voted out and first person in jury is Chris. He and Dom shake hands and hug, they say its all good and good luck. Chris forgets his torch and goes back for it. Jeff snuffs it. Jeff tells the tribe that if this TC is any indication of how the back half of this game is going to go everybody better come to play very moment of every single day.


 Next time on Survivor: When your left in the dark and not sure who to trust, you've got to keep your eyes on the prize. (as we see them eating Survivor delicacies)

Previously on Survivor: After the merge the war between Dom and Chris erupted, at TC Dom bluffed with a fake HII and played his Legacy Advantage thus sending Chris home. 12 are left, who will be voted out tonight. Back at Camp Libby wonders why her name has come up 3 TC in a row. She says she needs to keep her eye out for some help. Dom says he has a lot of respect for Chris but not sorry to see him leave. Dom says he needs to sit back and not call shots for a few days.


 Laviti Day 20. Wendell is making a kitchen. Wendell says his plan is to stick to the 4 no body knows about...Wendell, Dom, Laurel and Donathan. Wendell talks to Laurel to make her feel more secure. Wendell tells her Dom has a real HII. Laurel says she is with him a thousand percent. Wendell tells her he also has an HII. Laurel tells us she doesn't like not being told things. she says Wendell has shown she cant trust him 100%. Laurel tells us she needs to shake things up.


Reward challenge: they will divide into 2 teams, race across a floating bridge, use sand bags to knock down targets, first to 6 wins. Reward is the Survivor Taco Hut. Teams are: Orange: Dom, Kellyn, Jenna, Seb, Desi and Michael. Purple: Angela,  Laurel, Wendell, Libby, Chelsea and Donathan. Ready....Go. Purple gets one target down first. Orange gets one. Purple has 2. Orange goes over the target. Donathan up for Purple and has trouble with the slingshot. Purple using up their weaker players so their stronger players can take over.


 Orange gets another target down. Its tied. Orange uses Purple strategy. Purple gets another one, and a 4th one. 4 to 2 Purple. Orange gets one and so does Purple. Purple has one left. Orange gets another one. Orange misses, Purple shoots and .....gets it. Purple wins reward. Purple has Orange choose rocks to see who goes to GI...Jenna will go. She will return to camp tomorrow morning.


Jenna arrives at GI and breaks an urn. Not today it says. She tells us her positive attitude has gone down the drain today. Taco bar!!!! They are so excited. Wendell would risk immunity for guaco. Libby asks why her name was written down and they tell her its prob cuz its an easy name. Back at camp Day 24. They are glad Chris is not there anymore. But now its more of every man for himself.  Wendell finds out Michael has been stirring the pot, maybe its time for Michael to go.  


Immunity time: Survivor Classic food eating comp. Last person left standing wind immunity. Jeff says don't let something as simple as mind over matter prevent them from winning it all. First food is fish eyes. First 3 to get both down and show Jeff a clean mouth go on to the next round. Michael, Desi, Laurel make it through, now for the next set of survivor.....Wendel cant even get them to his mouth. Chelsea spits them up. Angela, Seb and Dom move on. Round two...beatle larva. Michael, Seb and Angela move on. Round three...sea slug. first two to the 2 of them down move on. Angela swallows one whole. Michael and Angela move on. Final round...Mother of pearl meat. Both shoving it down. Angela dances it down. Michael is gagging but gets it down. Angela gets hers down and wins immunity. Michael comes back to finish the piece he didn't get down. He says he will prob play Survivor once and wants to do it right. Michael says its disappointing to lose immunity but he is feeling good about getting Wendell out.


Day 23. At camp they congrat Angela on her win. Angela feels like she has a little bit of power right now. Desi throws Michaels name out. They worry Michael has an HII so they should split the vote, 5 votes on Michael 4 votes on Libby. Michael suggests Wendell. Laurel says it would be a big move for her to vote Wendell, this could make her future in the game. Donathan says they should stay with Malolo. Libby says if she votes for Michael it would be voting against a former member. Malolo is trying to stay strong and stick together.


Wendell wants to not play her HII but you never know.


Time for TC Night 25: Jury comes in. Jeff says Angela looked like a different person. She says she knew she had to win and take over her own game. Donathan says alliances are being formed and its not Naviti or Malolo anymore. Desi says its all about how it breaks down for you at the end of the day. Wendell says you see a big dog in the jury, its scary. Dom says at this point in the game you know you are getting BSed and someone is going to make the jump. Angela says its time to draw the lines in the sand.


Michael says everyone has to think about the right time to make their move. Time to vote. Time to tally the vote. Anyone want to use a HII? Michael pulls out Ozzy's fake HII and says this one is for Ozzy. Jeff says it is a real HII, any votes cast for Michael wont count. Votes: Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael, Wendell, Libby, Libby 9th person voted out is Libby. She says good luck guys. Michael pats Wendell on the shoulder and says well played sir. Jeff says Survivor is often compared to a roller coaster ride and this ride is far from over.


 Next time on Survivor: There's hope for Malolo, when they are given the ammo that could blow the game wide open.
