  4. Episode 5 October 24, 2018 Previously on Survivor: The buffs were dropped and Goliaths had the advantage on all 3 tribes. Carl went to EI and found an advantage. At TC Natalia went home. Vuku camp, Carl meets his new tribemates. Over at Tiva day 12 they enjoy the sun, clouds and sea. They think a grey cloud will blow over...nope it hits them hard. Nick says they cant make a fire or cook rice, this is the real deal. At Vuku it also hits hard...tree mail...a massive storm will hit in the next several hours, they will be evacuated from the island. Jabiti day 14, they return to camp after the cyclone. It looks like a bomb went off in all the camps. All tribe start to rebuild. Time for reward challenge: they will use poles to knock sand bags from an over the head net, then they will use a giant sling shot to hit 2 targets.

Purple gets their first shot. Orange wins the big reward. Green gets their first shot..tied one to one. Purple wins smaller reward. Gabby says if they had been that over confident before an immunity challenge her but could be on the line. Kara tells us she has no choice but to throw Alec under the bus, she will turn on the charm and out charm Alec. Kara tells Elizabeth she trusts her more then Alec, Elizabeth says she doesn't trust Kara. Elizabeth huts Kara but tells us Kara needs to go home. Angelina cant wait for the eggs. Natalie wants to cook and eat all the eggs today, she thinks the eggs will spoil. Lyrsa went to culinary school and the eggs wont spoil. They all talk about getting Natalie out. Day 15 Tiva ...the Has? the brochachos? The guys talk about Gabby going but Dan wants to protect Gabby with the HII, he still has his but they are at a new camp. Dan goes looking for a new HII. He has scoured the island and hasn't found it. And then he finds a clue....at the next immunity challenge there is an ball that has to be untied, its under that area. He says the old Dan would be proud of what he has done. Immunity time: They have to race up and over and obstacle, lift a ladder, use a rope to race a bridge, over the bridge to a ball (with HII under it) and use the ball in a maze. Lets do it!! Its tied as they go over the first obstacle and on to the second then third. Green is over the bridge first. Orange next and orange next. All of them have their ball. Dan steps back to the ball stand and pulls the HII out and shoves it down his shorts. Orange drops the ball, Green also drops. Purple about half way through. The higher they move on the maze the skinnier it gets. Green makes a nice move. Orange is higher and Purple falls behind. All at the top..who will get their first? Orange wins Immunity. Green also wins Immunity. Jabiti (purple) will go to TC for the first time. Lyrsa says she is voting for Natalie cuz she cant stand her. Maybe outside the game Natalie is a nice person but not in the game. Jebiti camp. Nick says he is sorry. Natalie says they are 3 Goliaths vs 2 Davids. Goliaths decides on Lyrsa. Angelina says she wants Lyrsa jacket, Natalie asks Nick to get the jacket. He refuses to steal it. Natalie asks for him to give up his jacket, he says no.

Night 15, TC: Jeff asks Angelina how but will the Galiath vs David numbers effect the game, she says they are Goliath strong. Lyrsa says Natalia went home they don't know the Goliath is over there. Natalie says she is layed back on the game. The others raise their eye brows. Natalie says she has had no issues with Angelina. Nick says Natalie just wants the jacket, Natalie says she is in sales, it wasn't bullying. Angelina says Natalie was doing that out of love for her.

  5. ok so here is my take on tonights show.....holy hell!! She didn't see that coming and I bet Alec is happy she wont be on Jury. Bitter much. I do feel bad for Bi but I think she made the right choice.

Bi says she has to say a sad announcement...she tore her ACL yesterday and has decided to leave the game. The David tribes says this will just make them better. Bi says they are amazing human beings and she is proud to know them. She goes to the waters edge to await a boat. Jeff tells them to drop their buffs. 3 colors: Green, yellow and purple. If you don't have a buff you don't have a tribe..Carl doesn't have one. Orange is Vuku is Natalia, Kara, Alec, Davie and Elizabeth. Green is Tiva is John, Dan, Allison, Chris and Gabby. Purple is Jabiti is Natalie, Mike, Angelina, Lyrsa and Nick. And Carl will go to EI, he will go to the tribe that goes to TC. Tiva will start over at a whole new camp. All the Davids say they need to befriend the Goliaths. They are all get acquainted. Elizabeth and Kara talk horses and get real close, Natalia is a bit nervous about it. At EI, Carl says he is used to being alone but he usually has a phone to talk to ppl. He finds a pole with a note on it, it says he will find something near the ocean but it could be washed away, he starts looking at cocoa nuts...tons of cocoa nuts. He starts tossing them up on shore. He finds it and gets an advantage, an Idol nullifier, he will play it in secret at TC, he has to write down the name of who he thinks will play an HII and it will cancel the HII.

Over at Tiva, Chris decides to stay away from John when he swings the machete. Chris says its time to bring about the charm, he asks John about Slamtime. Gabby says Chris has bonded with the boys and she has a little self doubt. Chris tells Gabby they are doing ok, she tells him its hard for her to open up like he has. She says she doesn't do well around Goliaths and he says the Goliaths have their vulnerabilities too. She is scared of going home. Day 11, time for Immunity challenge. Two tribes will win immunity. One person will be the caller and will sit on a cart that is pushed around by 2 blind folded members. They will retrieve a ball along the way, the caller will then have two more blindfolded members guide the ball thru a maze. Only the first tribe to get it also get donuts and coffee. Ready....Go!!

Orange ties it up in the last section....Purple gets it and wins immunity. Orange will go to TC. Vuku camp. Elizabeth and Davie go look for the HII, she doesn't know that Davie already has it. Davie says he doesn't want to use it this early in the game. Davie tells Natalia and Kara that Elizabeth wants one of them out. Elizabeth talks to Alec, she wants to flip him. He says its hard. She suggest getting out Davie. Elizabeth says she doesn't know what he is thinking. The girls tell Alec that Elizabeth is a bigger threat. Alec feels Natalia doesn't trust him. Natalia tells Davie if he is voting with them. Davie and Alec talk about maybe Natalia. Alec doesn't know, it could blow up his game. He will decide on the spot at TC. Night 11 at TC: Carl comes in, he will listen then go to camp with them. Jeff asks if it was Davids vs Goliaths, yes, its going to either Davie or Elizabeth. Both are nervous. Natalia says the game has started, she is excited to play the game. If she goes home tonight guns blazing she will be happy. Elizabeth says you got to be willing to have some balls and make some moves. Natalia says making big moves is the game. Alec gets up and whispers in Elizabeth's ear. Natalia doesn't like it at all. Alec whispers to Kara that its still the same he was just making waves. No one whispers to Davie. Time to Vote. We see Natalia vote for Elizabeth. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Elizabeth, Davie, Natalia, Natalia, 5th person voted out of Survivor is Natalia. Natalia says she knew it, she knew she couldn't trust Alec.

Next time on Survivor: There's no where to run, no where to hide because the storm is coming.
  7. Episode 3 Oct 10, 2018 Previously on Survivor: Natalie had no filter and Jeremy had no boundaries. A plan was set to get Lyrsa out but at TC Jessica went home. 18 are left, who will be voted out tonight. David tribe: Davie says here was tension after TC but there was good game play. Nick says Mason/Dixon just pulled the best move ever. They have broken the game apart. Nick says if they lose again Mason/Dixon will choose who will go again. Carl tears up over Jessica being gone, she was like a daughter to him. He feels alone, but he has always came from the bottom and worked for every thing. He has to turn it up a notch.

John is a bit worried about Natalie. Mike and Jeremy bond. Jeremy says his dad has Alzheimer's and he misses fishing with him the most. Jeremy says as he got older he realized how his dad influenced him. He tears up talking about him. Mike says that by Jeremy sneaking around finding HII in others stuff makes him wonder how he will be later, he doesn't want to get caught up in Jeremy down the road. Day 8, David tribe. Chris cant wait to hear what Slamtown is all about. Gabby says Chris is her number 1 ally in the game. On the boat Nick and Bi discuss Gabby. Jeremy says he saw so many side convos he is concerned. Kara tells us that no is strategizing because they aren't going to TC. Jeremy tells the tribe that there is no reason to talk about getting ppl out cuz there is no TC. Angelian says she still thinks they should get rid of Natalie. Jeremy says his second play would be to get Dan out to flush out the HII. Jeremy tells John that he found an HII in Dans pocket.

John hooks the sled, Elizabeth had her sled, still neck and neck at the puzzle part of the challenge. Both tribes still working on the pyramid puzzle. Davids win immunity stunning Goliath tribe. Bi will have medical look at her knee. Goliath thinks Natalie was the reason they lost the puzzle, this isn't the place for her. Davids are excited to have chairs and immunity.

Jeremy tells us you can only do what you can do. Alison says Natalie has been digging her own grave since day one. Agelina says Jeremy would be the right person to go first then Natalie. Alison is on the fence, Jeremy is a manipulator. Alison campaigns for Jeremy to go. Mike isn't happy with the talk going to Jeremy, he thinks its a simple answer and Natalie is that answer. The tribe talks about how they feel that at a tribe swap Natalie will talk bad about all of them. Natalie asks to talk to some of them when Jeremy sits down, she asks to talk to them with out him there. Jeremy and Natalie have words while Kara stands beside them. (she looks like she is watching a tennis match) Natalie walks way saying, its all about you Jeremy so cut it short. Night 9, time for TC. Goliath comes in, grab a torch and gets fire. Mike says his standards have lowered when a turn of a basket pillow can make him happy. Natalie says Jeremy has made her his target. Jeremy wonders how Natalie has reached 57 years old w/o being able to talk to ppl. Natalie says this is the kind of mentality she is talking about, this is how he speaks to ppl. Jeff asks Dan if this is just 2 different styles. Dan says yes. The tribe tries to justify Natalie. Natalie says she is impressed that half of this TC is about her. Natalie says she is 57 years old. Jeremy says she is old and in a tribe swap she will turn on them. Natalie says she will always be Goliath strong. John says its all about keeping the tribe strong and that means how ill they take down Davids next. Time to vote. We see Natalie vote for Jeremy. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Natalie, Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy, 3rd person voted out of Survivor is Jeremy. No one says a word. Jeff snuffs his torch and he walks off.

  9. Lots of older castaways this season.
  10. Age: 47Hometown: San DiegoCurrent residence: Los AngelesOccupation: Filmmaker Hobbies: Travel, wine enthusiast, and water sports. Pet peeves: I'm impatient with bigots. Three words to describe you: Curious/ funny, dynamic, and imaginative. What's your personal claim to fame? I've accomplished a lot in my career and was able to make a lot of movies. Who or what is your inspiration in life? I think of George Plimpton, a great writer who also wanted to experience the things he was writing about. He was fearless, inquisitive and enlightened. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? An eye mask to sleep. A good book; something fat. A SeaBob for the ocean! Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Johnathan Penner was a good storyteller and Rob from Amazon had a good read on people. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation is playing the game. I've always, always wanted to play and see how I would do. Secondary is the absurd challenge of it all. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have the desire. I know the game. I am a student of human psychology, like what people say and how they behave. cbs.com
  11. Age: 27Hometown: Williamsburg, KentuckyCurrent residence: Williamsburg, KentuckyOccupation: Public Defender Hobbies: Boating on the lake, four-wheeler riding, and tailgating football games and Keeneland horse races. Pet peeves: People getting offended over every little thing and know-it-alls. Three words to describe you: Charming, outgoing, and intelligent. What's your personal claim to fame? Becoming a Redneck Lawyer! I am a first generation college student and the first in my family to get a bachelor degree. I am also proud of myself for being a public defender to help people instead of chasing money—especially because money and the thought of being rich motivated me in school. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Mamaw Joan—my grandma. She is the most selfless person I've ever met. When my mom and dad got divorced she raised me and my four siblings while we stayed with my dad. She taught me life-changing lessons like the value of hard work and the importance of helping others. She also taught me how to enjoy a beer and some bluegrass music. Work hard, play hard, love hard. Her favorite quote was, "If you don't use it, you lose it!" If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A cooler, beer, and a radio. Nothing beats being outdoors and putting a few back. As great as it is at a tailgate, on the lake, or at a bonfire, I bet it would be even more enjoyable on the beaches of Fiji. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? J.T. from Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains, and Game Changers. I've got that Southern charm. I can be hard headed when in the heat of a competition. I'll either win or get myself sent home with a massive swing for the fences. No regrets! What's your reason for being on Survivor? I think there are three reasons people play Survivor: adventure, money, and fame. My primary motivation is the experience and adventure! It has been my dream to play this game since I was a little kid. I want to push myself even further in life then I already have and test myself. My secondary motivation is the money. If I had a million dollars, I could pay off my student loans, which would open up my career options a little more. Money is not my primary motivation, because I anticipate I will make a million dollars in my career at some point. I do not care about fame. These days, Survivor contestants are only famous for about six months, anyways. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I know I could be the final Survivor because I am the total package for this game, First, I am an adamant, hard-working son of a gun. I have chased my dreams my whole life and achieved those, despite humble beginnings. Second, I am a likeable, social guy. Third, I am physically fit and stronger than I look. I will do great in the challenges—tribal and individual, physical and puzzle. Fourth, I am very smart and it is hidden well behind my accent and appreciation for small town life. I will definitely be underestimated. Finally, I am a Survivor strategy expert. I am a super fan who has analyzed every season and every move. As I said, I am the Survivor total package. cbs.com

Pet peeves: I can't stand a dirty kitchen, people that won't stop talking about themselves, and unnecessary continuous noises. Three words to describe you: Overachiever, funny, and resourceful. What's your personal claim to fame? Going back to school and making it to grad school. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My hero is my mom, but please don't tell her! She went back to college after 40 years, completed her undergrad with a dual concentration and graduated Cum Laude way before I did. I saw her overcoming her fears and school struggles. She never gave up and we even took classes together! If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? My sketch book with a pencil for drawing and writing. The book 100 Years of Solitude because it's one of my favorites. My kickboxing gloves to practice. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Probably Sandra. Her first two seasons with the "as long as it's not me' and playing low key until the end was good. I would also have eaten that goat if possible on Game Changers. It's food! What's your reason for being on Survivor? I want to prove to myself and my friends that I can do this. I've been a fan of the show since the first season, although sometimes I forget some details. My friends think that just because I don't go camping, I can't do it. This is also a social game, not just physical, and I think I can outwit and outlast just being me and using my brains. I also have student loans and a Ph.D to pay. I would also like to win the game for parents and friends. After Hurricane Maria, things got very hectic back home in Puerto Rico, and I would love to be able to help them. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I might not be a physical threat, although I have been doing kickboxing for about four months, but I think studying other contestants, using their weaknesses to my advantage and keeping a good social game, I would win. I am mostly relying on my social game. I will vote off people but my relationships with them would be real. I am a very loyal, honest person, so I would try not to backstab people, but it's a game and I want to win. cbs.com
  13. Age: 30Hometown: Orangeburg, South CarolinaCurrent residence: AtlantaOccupation: Social Media Manager Hobbies: Swimming, hiking, biking, fishing—basically any outdoor activity that involves my huskies. Playing Scrabble, cosplaying, and memes! Pet peeves: I don't like people making decisions for me, especially without asking my opinion. Never expect a free ride with me if I see you being complacent. I will push you to get up and show initiative. There's nothing that bothers me more than a lazy person who acts privileged around those who've had to work for things their entire life. Oh, and calling me Dave or David instead of Davie, my momma named me that! Three words to describe you: Uncommon, adventurous, and calculating. What's your personal claim to fame? My online presence. I've always prided myself on my social media presence via various platforms. I wear my pages on my sleeve so to say that anything a person wants to know about me they can find on my multiple accounts. I've been proclaimed "the social media guru" among my closest friends because I know every trick and trinket to the game. Examples: Posting at peak hours to maximize the amount of "likes" you receive, guaranteed responses from females via Direct Messages (how to slide into them DMs), not to mention providing Grade A entertainment via video stories regularly. I've often also been told that my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook is "my favorite" from friends and even been called by my Instagram handle in public quite frequently (@iHateDavie) by strangers. Social media is also the reason I became employed with the top agency in the world for Public Health. I can say with confidence that it is my expertise and claim to fame undeniably. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Rick Grimes is my hero, though he is a fictional character. I have learned so much from him, from leadership skills to dealing with new people and new surroundings. The lead character in The Walking Dead, Rick leads a group of average individuals who become stronger because of his teachings and experiences. He defeats all of his enemies in a strategic and calculating way. Rick is dedicated to the title that his group has given him and is a provider for his family and friends, like myself. He has good days and bad days but never gives up. I channel Rick in a crisis and it helps me stable my mind, while having a little fun in the process. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? My harmonica. I believe in therapy and relaxation and making my own music will do just that. When I am stressed in the game, I can create this escape mentally and physically and maybe even look for idols in the process or entertain a few people and make friends along the way. My Davy Crockett hat. It's my lucky hat. I have worn it to tests and passed and I have worn it on dates and gotten lucky. When I wear this hat, I channel my best self. My Bible. I believe that Christ strengthens my being and it's important that I review his teachings, especially in times of chaos and struggle. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Jeremy Collins. He was genuinely a good guy that knew when to speak and knew when to observe, that's my Obama! Also, Tony Vlachos, in that he was an innovative thinker to the game. Finally, Adam Klein in that he's a family man with a giddy sense of humor. They are all winners and so am I! What's your reason for being on Survivor? I want to prove to myself that I can do this. I was always teased for not playing popular sports like my friends so this would be my ultimate competition. I'm the middle child so almost the black sheep of the family. Both of my brothers are so accomplished so I want to have my own unique medal of self-accomplishment. My secondary motivation is my pack, my huskies. Recently, my beta wolf Luna Moon was hit by a car. I thought she was dead but we were able to save her. However, not without me being in debt. With my winnings, I want to create an insurance company for pet owners so that when things like this happen to us, we won't be faced with the hardest decision of our lives (putting a pet down). Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I understand how packs work. As a Siberian husky breeder, I know that in order to gain the trust of my pups, I have to feed them. I'm a skilled fisherman so as soon as I can get in the water to catch fish for my tribe, I will earn their trust. I also build doghouses and construct kennels for my pups and with my tribe, this would be no different. Creating new innovative, comforting types of shelter will show me as an asset. Lastly, with my pack, I have to be stern with them. I will mingle with the entire tribe, not just a few to show my sociability while also being assertive with them when it's time to put my foot down. cbs.com
  14. Age: 27Hometown: Lake Butler, FloridaCurrent Residence: Gainesville, FloridaOccupation: S.W.A.T. Officer Hobbies: Working out in the gym, running at the stadium, or running the S.W.A.T. obstacle course, playing video games, and having date nights with my daughters. Pet peeves: I can't stand people that are lazy. Go out and get what you want! Don't complain about it and do nothing and expect it to happen. I also hate when people cut me off while I'm talking. Please let me finish what I have to say, it may be important. Three words to describe you: Determined, athletic, and competitive. What's your personal claim to fame? I am extremely proud of making our S.W.A.T. team. I had to work extremely hard to lose a ton of weight to be physically able to even try out, much less do well enough to make the team. I was one of the youngest and least experienced people to ever make our S.W.A.T. team. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My hero is my stepfather, Tim. Tim met my mother shortly after my parents separated. My whole life he has always been a steady father figure and an amazing role model. He taught me the value of hard work and how to be a humble man. When I met Tim at seven years old, he had nothing. My mother and him worked diligently and started a company from nothing and now want for nothing. Don't get me wrong, they aren't billionaires, but they pretty much do what they want when they want. Tim works many long hours and long nights to provide an amazing life to our family. The best part about him is you will never hear him brag about it. There is a song written by Brad Paisley that makes me think of him and brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. It's called "He Didn't Have to Be." It talks about how his stepfather was a great father to him and he hoped that he can be half the dad that he didn't have to be. That describes how I feel about Tim. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? A picture of my kids because I will miss them terribly. A Kindle with lots of books for entertainment. A hammock so I can have somewhere comfortable to sleep. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I feel like I can relate to Malcolm from Season 25 the most. I feel like I'm young and athletic like he is and that I could do well in the challenges, making me an asset to my team in the beginning. I also feel like I can play the game strategically like he did, helping me run deep in the game. I work in a profession that requires me to be able to talk to any type of person through all walks of life and be able to relate and convince them to do things that I may need them to do. Malcolm was such a likeable person that he was voted off because three other contestants knew they wouldn't beat him in the final vote. I feel like I'm a very likeable person. I am able to make friends and relate to people anywhere I go. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation for being on the show is to win. A million dollars would be a great way for me to provide a great life for my children that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise. My secondary motivation is my desire to compete. I love competing and I love winning. I haven't been able to compete at a high level since I played college football and I would love to be able to compete against other gifted men and women. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I believe that I could be the winner for multiple reasons. I have a strong desire to win. I always want to win at absolutely everything I do. Whether it be checkers with my girls or just trying to be the first one to a call for service at work. I always want to be first. I have a strong work ethic. When I put my mind on something and decide that's what I want, I go and get it. Prime examples would be making our S.W.A.T. team. Prior to trying out, I was a very overweight guy. I decided that I wanted to be more than just a regularly everyday beat cop and I did whatever it took to do it. I changed my diet drastically, I worked out every single day, and I went to the track and ran sprints 2-3 times a week. Lastly, I'm very good with people. My career requires me to be able to talk to people all day. Everything I do at work requires interaction with people, and more importantly people who are typically either angry or distressed. I am very good at talking to people and convincing them to do things that they typically wouldn't want to do. I am quite skilled at calming people down when they are upset or angry. cbs.com
  15. Age: 28Hometown: Leawood, KansasCurrent residence: Chapel Hill, North CarolinaOccupation: Physician Hobbies: Getting to the bottom of bottomless breadsticks at Olive Garden. Working out in any capacity—typically swimming, circuit training, running or hiking. Playing medical "would you rather" with friends. Pet peeves: A sense of entitlement, when someone eats the last bite of a meal after I have been carefully constructing the perfect final bite, and slow drivers in the left hand lane. Three words to describe you: Hero, healer, and hustler. What's your personal claim to fame? Got fifth place in my grade school spelling bee. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My parents taught me about work ethic, industry, and perseverance. They made so many sacrifices so that my siblings and I would have every opportunity possible. They pushed me to be the best version of myself. They also demonstrated daily how to lead a purposeful life guided by integrity and morality. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? To quote Dwight K. Schrute, "Physician's desk reference. Hollowed out. Inside, waterproof matches, iodine tablets, beet seeds, protein bars and a NASA blanket." The reason seems obvious here. Also, face wash. I appreciate a good skincare regimen. And a Costco pack of Orbitz bubblemint gum for that minty fresh taste. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Andrea Boehlke, a fellow Midwesterner, who is tough in challenges, hardworking around camp, strategic, and a fierce competitor. What's your reason for being on Survivor? I want to win a million dollars so that I may thank my parents for the endless opportunities that they have given me through the years. I also feel like I have lived an extraordinary life, but I am looking for new, unparalleled adventure. I have been on this well-defined path for ten years, pursuing medicine, and now is the perfect opportunity for me to deviate from the expected and do something totally unpredictable. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? The stakes are higher for me than most as I am acutely aware of what I am giving up (in stepping away from my patients and my program for two months), so I will not be afraid to make big moves. I will fight until the very end, and then when sitting across from the jury at the final Tribal Council, they will all commend the brilliant, strategic game I played. cbs.com
