Welcome to Survivor: Island of Idols. Its about to get crazy. Rob says what these new kids dont know is that he and Sandra are here to tell them how its done. Sandra says its about time the Queen taught someone else her tricks. They will serve as mentors, they will live on the Island of the Idols. They will not play, vote or win. 39 days, 20 people, 1 survivor. Day 1 Lairo: Karishma says she is so excited. The  boat lands on the beach and everyone hugs. Lairo is orange.

Janet is worried about being a vote off being an older woman, she wants to make an impact by making fire and she is a life guard. They have fire. Back at Lairo: Vince knows what he is doing with tools. Elaine, Tom and Vince hit it off right away. The rest of the tribe notice they have been gone for a while and make themselves a 10 vs 3 group. Easy to get the 3 out. 


Vakai camp: Jamal says they are doing well, they have fire, shelter, good will, they are chillin. Jason says its Island of the Idol and heads off to look for an HII. The tribe notices he is gone. Dan says Jason is done. 


Vokai, Jack finds a giant clam. Jack and Tommy connect. Noura says she feels she can trust Jason and she tells him that the others are after him cuz he disappeared. Lairo camp: Elaine says she uses humor to deflect ppl from her. Missy says she likes the girls, the seem like they are not subservient, they are self sufficient.


Day 2 Vokai: Dan gives massages. Kellee is a germaphobe and she doesn't like that Dan touches her all the time. Molly says Dan doesn't know personal space. Kellee tells him she is uncomfortable with his touching and he understands. Day 2 Lairo:Vokai, Jack finds a giant clam. Jack and Tommy connect. Noura says she feels she can trust Jason and she tells him that the others are after him cuz he dissappeared. Lairo camp: Elaine says she uses humor to deflect ppl from her. MIssy says she likes the girls, the seem like they are not subserviant, they are self sufficient. Elaine is not hungry yet, she has a lot of insulation. Ronnie says he watches and sees what they bring to the game. Lairo: Ronny and Elaine talk, she doesnt trust him. 


Day 3 Immunity challenge time. Jeff's first look at the tribes. Elaine tells him they were a little mad he didnt meet them on day 1. They have to race up and down an obstacle, drop a bridge, climb to the top of a tower then solve a massive village puzzle. They are playing for the Idol and flint. 


Ready...go! purple is first to the obstacle but both are moving quickly. Both are good and on to the next part. Purple hooks the rope and pulls to lower the bridge. Orange gets the rope and pulls. Purple making a human ladder to get to the tower and gets to the top and releases the rope. Orange is right behind. Orange takes the lead and starts on the puzzle. Purple right behind them. They have to build the village on piece at time, one hut at a time. Purple has 2 huts done, Orange has 1. Purple  wins immunity and reward. Lairo will go to TC. Jeff tells Lairo that one of them will be the first to experience Island of the Idols. Elaines draws Elizabeths name from the bag. Elizabeth will be the first to go to ioi but she will return for TC. Elizabeth is scared and not happy she will miss out on strategizing .


Day 3 at Island of the Idols (ioi) Elizabeth says its beautiful but she doesn't know what she is going to walk into. She sees huge statues of Boston Rob and Sandra. Rob and Sandra come walking out, she hugs both. The walk up to camp and Rob reads The Oath of the Idols. Think of this place as a Survivor Bootcamp. Rob teaches her to make fire. Sandra takes her away to try it on her own. She makes fire and comes back to Rob. Now she has will race Rob in making fire to win an HII, if she loses she loses her vote. Sandra tells us its a miss match but you never know. We dont see her decision. 

Lairo the tribe says its not on the puzzle makers. Tom, Chelsea, Vince and Elaine talk about voting Ronnie. Others talk about Elaine. Karishma says she is so torn right now. Vince doesn't want Elaine either, he trusts Elaine. Elaine says she knew it in her gut she is going home. Back to ioi: Elizabeth goes for it, she will race Rob in fire making. Rob says she took the first option not thinking he had something else in his back pocket. Elizabeth gets sparks first, Rob wins. Rob says Survivor is full of pit falls like this. Always trust your gut. Elizabeth loses her vote at TC tonight. Rob has her reach in a bag from the other tribe and pull out a name to be the next person to come to ioi...we dont get to see who it is.


Back at camp, Dan and Elaine talk, Dan says they don't have the numbers dont worry. Elaine tells them she will do anything that inst mean, she will vote anybody they want. Aaron tells her she is to personable. Aaron tells us it could be Vince or Elaine. Elizabeth tells camp that you go to ioi, there is a path that brings you to 3 urns, you break one and she got a card that says she loses, no game. Aaron tells Elizabeth that between her and him the vote is Vince. They all want her vote but she wont tell them she doesn't have one. She says her brain is scrambled eggs right now. 


Time for TC: They all grab a torch, dip it in and get fire. Rob and Sandra watch from behind the scenes. Chelsea says day 1 they walked onto the beach and wondered where Jeff was. Karishma says Yes Elaine is a in trouble because she is so likable. Ronnie says they need to keep the tribe strong or they wont win the next challenge. Elaine says she is devistated she may go home. She is crying, says its heartbreaking to think you wont make it. But it will also be the best thing that has happened to her. Ronnie says they lived similar lives, we all have our stories, this is a dream come true for all of us, its a heart breaker to get voted out in 3 days. Vince talks, Rob and Sandra like him. Rob asks Sandra if this is hard for her, she says .____ no. 


Time to vote. Time to tally the vote.  Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Vince, Ronny, Vince, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, First person voted out is Ronnie. He is surprised, Vince and Elaine grin. Jeff says wow, well the theme of tonight's tribal were how hard was it to vote someone out and yet the results was a devastating blindside. They get flint and head back to camp. 


Next time on Survivor: When there is a blindside and heartache you can go insane.

Episode 2


Lairo camp: They talk about the votes, Vince is worried about his votes. They tell him it was all about Ronnie. Aaron was mad. Missy says with a guy gone the girls are doing well. Aaron says their day will come. Day 4 Vokai, Noura is complaining. Molly says as each day goes by its harder to like Noura. Noura doesn't hold her tongue, she tells everyone what needs to be done or gathered when they are out and about. Noura says Molly is put together and charms people.


Noura says her and Jason are the underdogs and the others are the popular kids, its like HS all over again. Lairo camp tries to make fire, Chelsea makes a suggestion and they ask if she wants to make it...she succeeds in 2 min. Dan says it ruined his male ego for life. Chelsea says the girls can do anything the guys can do only better. Chelsea collects fire wood and finds an HII. Chelsea says she doesn't know where the guys heads are but the game has started and they are behind.


Vokai Day 5: They are on the beach doing yoga led by Noura. A boat comes in into shore with a note. They gather as group. Kellee needs to get on the boat and got to ioi, she is freaking out. They tell her to assume nothing and think outside the box


At ioi Kellee is nervious, she says maybe Cokcron will pop out of the bushes, out pop Boston Rob and Sandra. Rob reads her the Oath of rules. They chit chat for a few minutes. They bombard her with info and she starts to look confused. Rob tells her that her lesson started the minute she landed on the beach, paying attention to others and forming bonds and trust is important. How well was Kellee paying attention to them. If she answers 4 out of 5 questions right she gets an HII that is good for the next 2 TC, if she loses she loses her vote at the next TC. Rob sweetens the deal, only 3 out of 5 questions and the HII good for the next 3 TC. She agrees....Q1 is correct, Q2 is correct, Q3 is correct, she gets the HII and cries. Kellee picks the next person to come to ioi.


back at camp Kellee starts to cry. She tells them about the wooden statues and offers to strip down to see that she doesnt have anything but she hid it in her hair. They hug  her, patting her hair in the process.


Day 6 Immunity challenge, they have to swim out and release a ladder from the ocean floor, use it to retreave a bag of balls, lad the balls in 3 targets. First tribe to win receives Immunity and reward of a cooking kit and spices. Vokai sits out Lauren. Ready...Go!! Both find their ladder. Lairo gets their ladder first the Vokai but Vokai has trouble getting ladder to the bag. Lairo gets their bag and the loses it in the water, they find it. Vokai cant hold the ladder while Lairo gets ready to start putting the balls in the holes. Vokai gets their bag of balls. Lairo gets their first ball in the spot. Vokai gets to the ball part. Lairo gets 2, Vokai gets 1, Vokai gets 2, its tied. Vokai misses. Lairo wins immunity.  Tommy says it will be either Nouri or Jason, he feels bad for them, you can't put your neck out for somebody, you have to play for yourself.


Vokai day 6. Nouri tells Jamal and Jack that she knows its either her or Jason. They ask Jason if he has a HII and he says no. They will split the votes between the two. Nouri campaigns to stay. Molly says to have a good afternoon and not mess this up. Jamal takes a nap. The girls wonder about Molly, Janet says Molly has the guys in the palm of her hand. Lauren says she is not going to let Molly play her, she will play Molly, she wont be a sheep. Jason is excited to hear its going to be Molly but its sounds to good to be true, he tells Nouri who dances. Janet tells Tommy and he says its to early, the turmoil will be crazy. Its a tough decision, shuffle the deck and make a move or go with the cool kids. 


Time for TC: they grab a torch and get fire. Rob and Sandra go into their little hidy hut to watch TC. Jason says he noticed that everybody except him got along from the start, he has been in purgatory accused of looking for a HII. It could be an easy vote then lets start playing the game. Kellee says the group culture was to get camp started then look for a HII. Jason turns his bag upside down and shakes it showing has no HII. Noura says she sticks out but she doesn't like to stick in, she does her own thing, but what makes you happy is fitting in. She says some of the problems in actual life is reflected here. Molly says she will tread water until she drowns. Jamal says the pedal is not to the metal, Survivor is a slow burn. Jason says you didnt come to TC will a bag, Jamal says the game Jason is playing is not the game he has to play right now. 


Kellee says there are a lot of contradictions about how they feel about the vote, when they are gone the group will be gone forever. Time to vote: we see Jamal vote for Jason, Noura votes Molly. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use the HII? nope. Votes: Jason, Noura, Molly, Jason, Molly, Molly, Molly, second person voted is Molly. Sandra says Dang they played her a**. Molly says good luck guys. Jeff says there is a brutal but exhilarating true to every blind side, if it can happen to them it can happen to you. This tribe is definitely not in first gear. 


Next time on Survivor: In a game of manipulation there will be blood (one of the girls says I can see my bone as we see blood pour out of a hand) and an impossible mission.

Episode 3


Vokai Night 6: Jason says at TC Molly went home and he stayd, it was a total blindside. They all stand around not wanting to talk. Jack says he had no idea about the vote, he has a lot of work to do. Jack says that was amazing. Tommy says he has to do damage control with Jamal. Jamal says he is not happy, forgive but not forget. Lairo day 7. The girls are in the water and the guys are at camp. Kaishma is uncomforable with her lack of coverup but she has to make the girls feel strong about their alliance and if that means she is in her underwear so be it. Aaron says 5 girls/4 guys ...the guys ban together. Vince says ifthe girls have control of the game fine, he will work with the women. Vokai make fire. Dan says he wants a win win and thats Noura for the next vote. 


Dan says he thinks they can go 8-1 for Noura and no one will be upset. Jamal says this will be a nice unifying vote, but he reserves the right to go rough. Jamal says Dan has a car salesman vibe about him when he wants you to do something. Jamal talks to Janet about maybe getting Dan out. Tommy says Jamal is coming on to strong, do they consider Jamal? Maybe he is the best vote for Tommy's game. 


Karishma is shredding coconut and stabs the knife into her hand, she can see the bone. She is on the ground and no one comes to her aide. She says if she had cut her hand off no one would have helped her, everyone on the tribe is dead to her. 


Lairo: a boat shows up and they are slow getting to it. Vince is headed to ioi and will return in the morning. The tribe thinks he will come back with an HII and they need to flush it. Dean says split the vote and its silence...was everyone thinking it, yes...was any one going to say it...no. Vince gets to ioi, he is worried that ppl will make plans against him. Sandra and Rob come out to meet him. He is star struck and over come with emotion. Rob says its awesome that they were just playing the game and it made such an impact on ppl. 


Rob tells Vince that his lesson is staying calm under pressure, his test is to sneak into the other tribes camp and steal fire with this torch. If he does it he gets a HII that is for the next 2 TC, if he doesn't do it he loses his vote. He says he will take the test. Rob gives him a map of the other tribes camp. Sandra says its late at night, doesnt know the camp. They give him hints on how to succeed. Rob says Sandra takes it a step to far..as usual. Good luck Vince. Vince gets to Vokai and he says his shoes squeek, he heart is beating, some one is having a bad dream and wakes the camp. They settle down and Vince sneeks in and sees there is no fire, he is going to collect ash to show Rob and Sandra he tried. Tommy keeps looking around but rolls over....Vince gets out of there and back to the boat. Back on ioi...Sandra says he didnt get caught, Rob says he adapted, its a win he gets a HII.


Immunity Challenge time: one person will swim out to get a key, the rest will climb out onto a teeter totter while retrieving 2 bags of puzzle pieces then use the key to unlock the last bag, Put the puzzle together and win. Its also reward challenge for comfort items. Elizabeth and Janet will swim out for their tribes, Elizabeth is first to the net and gets the key. Lairo heads out to the teeter totter. Janet having trouble getting the key, she gets it finally. Lairo is almost to the first bag and drops it into the water. Vokai making up time, gets their first bag. Lairo gets both bags, and starts on the puzzle. Vokai gets to their puzzle (its a hanging fish puzzle) Vokai takes a big lead and Vokai wins immunity and reward. 


Lairo camp. Tom says ppl are mad they didnt win, they said Karishma messed up the comp but Vince probable has an HII they have to make sure the girls vote Vince. Missy says the girls have the vote why should they vote out Vince when he will be a vote with them. Do they shoot for Tom? Elizabeth says Dan is like their dad, she wants to vote out Vince. Karishma is worred its her. Vince tells us Karishma needs to give them a name, Vince tells her to vote Tom. Vince says he will play his HII if he feels the need. Chelsea says Tom? Vince? Karishma? The tribe is being run by the women and Vince is an ally of the girls. 


Time for TC: Rob and Sandra get in their little hidy hut. Tom says this had a difference sense to it then the first TC. Its frustrating, they are 2-0 with puzzles. Karishma says there is heat on her back, when push comes to shove and when it comes to her tribe she will push so hard, she can be a strong ally. Karishma says she feels like an audience member to the girls sorority. Dan says he came into this game with the idea of not losing a challenge and they have lost twice. Aaron says he is 100% with his tribe. Vince says dont let the paranoa kick in. Karishma gets up and starts whispering. Dan says he doesnt buy it, nothing has changed.


Time to vote. We see Vince for Tom, Dean votes for Karishma. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Tom, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Vince, Vince, Vince...tied....Vince, 3rd person voted out is Vince. Sandra is saying oh no. Rob says Vince was voted out with a HII in his pocket. 


Next time on Survivor: When romance blossoms, you must protect your secrets, while flying blind.

Episode 4


Lairo Night 8: tribe talks to Karishma about the vote, she says she understands but that she knows she is expendable. Dean and Chelsea snuggle up and Aaron says that is dangerous. Dean says he is super drawn to Chelsea. Missy says if Dean doesnt help in some way he needs to go, she is ready to make a big move. Aaron says Karishma will keep for later. Vokai day 9: They take the raft out for the first time, Jamal stays on shore and looks for the HII. Jamal says you have to be present in the here and now...he finds the HII


Vokai, Boats coming in.....one of them must come to ioi by a unanamous vote or draw from the bag. Noura voluteers to go. Noura meats Sandra and Rob on the beach. They offer her watermelon and she screams. Rob tells her her lesson is about the art of persuasion. Persuasion has to line up with what someone wants, different people need different types of persuasion, scare someone, or rumors, this for that. Rob offers her some insight in to the next Immunity Challenger...the caller is the most important person in that challenge, if she can persuade them to make her the caller she will be able to block the vote of another player, if she fails she loses her vote. She goes for it. Sandra says she didnt give it much thought, that is her mentality and it will get her in trouble. Rob says she is living in Noura world, is her perception reality?


Noura comes back to camp, she tells them she gets an advantage in the next immunity challenge for her and her tribe, she tells them that they have to unanamously make her role, she tells them if they all agree she gets to pick the part she plays she can tell them the game. They agree and she tells them she is the caller and they are blindfolded. Jamal asks what makes her the caller? Noura says she already the caller by their agreement. Kellee says its a bad lie. They practice, Lauren says Noura is not a good caller, if she insists on being the caller then she better follow thru or it will be her a**. 


Day 11 Immunity challenge time: A caller will lead them through a course collecting keys,use the keys to unlock puzzle pieces, the caller will then tell a still blindfolded member to put the puzzle together. The tribe votes Noura to sit out. Noura says this might blow up her game, its a friggin nightmare. Elizabeth calling for Lairo and Jason calling for Vokai. Both get their first keys, Vokai get their second. Vokai has all the keys. Lairo is having trouble. Vokai gets to the mat and heads out to the puzzle area. Lairo gets their third key. Kellee working on the puzzle. Elizabeth grabs her tribe by the hand and heads across the course to the puzzle area. Aaron starts on the puzzle for Lairo. Kelle and Jason almost have it. Lairo working quickly. very close......Lairo thinks they have it but no. Vokai thinks they have it and they do. Vokai wins immunity. Missy says she is going to keep Karishma in her pocket and use her vote.


Lairo day 11: Elizabeth says sorry, tribe says they put her in that possition. Karishma thinks she is at the bottom, she doesnt want to go home, not like this. Dean says Karishma's name has been around a while, it wont be a blindside. Chelsea says her relationship with Dean will take her far. Aaron says the game needs to blow up now he suggests Dean. Elizabeth and Missy are shocked. Dean helps out while Karishma takes a nap, she is not ready to see Dean go. Elaine says if Aaron is willing to cut the throat of his friend what will he do to her? Aaron says this koombya nonsense has got to go. Missy is her to play the game and kick some but, she needs a name that is not attached.....she talks to Elaine about Chelsea. Elaine says her ablilty to drop names like that scares her. This one is going to draw the line in the sand, it will be gut check time. 


Time for TC: Rob and Sandra go into their hidy hut. Sandra says they just love TC. Chelsea says that line hasnt been drawn in the sand yet maybe it will be tonight. Karishma says its the Survivor God that she is still there, no one will talk to her. Elaine says she is lost all the time. MIssy says if you say you can do something do it. Karishma says maybe chaos is a ladder and she can climb her way out. Dean says there is some sort of sorry in their and thanks for playing. MIssy wouldnt be shocked if it were her but she didnt hear her name out there today, but in a good blindside she wouldnt hear it. Rob says it could be anybody. 


Time to vote. Time to tally the votes.  Anyone want to use a HII? nope.  Votes: Karishma, Karishma, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, 4th person voted out is Chelsea.  Sandra says yup you wanted a blindside you got you one. Chelsea says good luck guys. Jeff says well I guess that was plan Z. 


Next time on Survivor: In a game of lies, new battle lines are drawn (drop your buffs).

#S39 Lairo, Day 12. Alone on the beach, Dean was completely blindsided at the previous night's TC. He feels left out and ostracized, he got got. He turned into Detective Kowalkski to learn who ordered the hit on Chelsea. Main suspects are Elizabeth, Elaine, Missy and Aaron. So I interrogate them.

#S39 Karishma tells Dean she was the last one to learn about the plan. No, Dean corrects her, I was. Dean tries to figure out where the idea originated but nobody confesses. Missy says it wasn't a hit but the showmance put Chelsea at risk. Dean tells her she's not making sense. It was in fact Missy's blindside and she tells us Dean shouldn't bite the hand that feeds him.

#S39 Vokai and Lairo arrive at the challenge site and Jeff tells them to drop their buffs, they're switching tribes. Castaways pick new buff bundles and on signal, they reveal their new buffs. Elizabeth, Missy, Aaron and Elain join Vokai (purple), while Jamal, Noura, Jack, Kelee and Janet join Lairo (orange). Vokai has a 4-4 split, while Lairo has a 5-4 former Vokai majority.

#S39 Time for Reward Challenge. Feet will be tied together, arms bound to the side, Castaways must slither through the sand across a series of obstacles then race to finish a puzzle in the shape of a fire flame. First tribe to get it done wins Applebees in Fiji -  Loaded Sizzling Fajitas and queso with all the fixings, spinach, artichoke dip, quesadillas, a Blue Ribbon Brownie and the Shark Bowl to drink.. 

#S39 This RC is a race between pairs of castaways from each tribe, linked by rope. First up are Elizabeth (Vokai) & Dan vs. Tom & Janet (Lairo). They have to slither over the hot sand over hills. After the first hill, Vokai tags Tom & Missy with an early lead. Luaren & Elaine are the final pair for Vokai. Jack & Dean tag in for Lairo. Vokai reaches the puzzle, Jason & Aaron.

#S39 Karishma and Noura are the final pair for Lairo while Jason & Aaron work the puzzle. Karishma struggles to get up the mound. Noura is pulling Karishma up the hill but will it be enough? They reach the mat and Jamal and Kellee start working the puzzle. They quickly get their first two pieces but Vokai only has 3 remaining. Vokai wins Reward!

#S39 Vokai heads out to their Applebees meal and Tom quickly tells us that it was Karishma's fault Lairo lost. Drinks greet the Vokai tribe mates at the Applebees hut as they dig into the steaming hot food. More Shark Bowls and beer are brought out. Jason tells us a 4-4 split is dangerous - there could be a TC tie - so they need to get someone from Vokai to join the former Lairo. Elaine isn't happy her other Lairo tribe mates are getting so friendly with the Vokai.

#S39 The former Vokai are impressed with the Lairo shelter and Karishma is already feeling the pressure to flip on Lairo. She spills the beans with Kellee as soon as the guys walk away. Tom is in the water, poisoning Karishma to the other Vokai. Dean and Kellee also get to know each other and discover that they have a mutual friend - a girl he dated for six years with whom Kellee went to business school.

#S39 Kellee tells us they are staying Vokai strong, so the three Lairo are at their mercy. Karishma reveals she had an arranged marriage and her parents met just 2 weeks before they were married. But after 4 years of marriage, she's now questioning her life decisions - they are more like roommates than spouses. Karishma thinks revealing her personal life will help her get in good with her new tribe.

#S39 Over in Vokai, it's a throw down as Missy and Elaine square off in a wrestling match. Elaine wins. Aaron sets out to make a connection with Tommy, talking about his purple socks with his son's picture woven in. They agree to have each other's back into merge. Someone's going to have to break the 4-4 tie but hopefully not either of them. Aaron tells Missy that Vokai won't flip. They agree that Orange is dead. 

#S39 Day 14, and it's time for an Immunity Challenge. Tribes are starting out on a floating platform, have to swim out to a ladder and leap off the top rung, then release 3 buoys from an underwater cage and maneuver them on a rope-held disc while walking across a set of floating balance beams, then throw the buoys into three floating net targets. First tribe to hit all three targets wins Immunity.

#S39 For Immunity, Survivors ready? Go! Everyone is in the water. Everyone must be on the platform before they can start going up the latter. Both tribes even, but Karishma is slow up the ladder, giving Elaine a chance to catch up. Lairo still has a slight lead. Dan laps Noura and Vokais the first to release their buoys. Jeff calls out Karishma again for being slow getting up onto the platform.

#S39 Vokai is halfway across the balance beams while Lairo struggles to get the buoys onto the disc. Vokai is through the middle part of the challenge and swims over to the final platform. Lairo drops a buoys in the water and has to start the middle part over. Missy gets the first target for Vokai. Lairo completes the middle stage. Missy misses two in a row. Lairo starts shooting. 

#S39 Tommy takes over for Vokai and scores a shot. Dean gets the first shot for Lairo. Tommy misses and is unable to bring Vokai a win. Dean nails his second shot and Lairo has tied Vokai. Dean tosses short. Tommy is short. Dean hits the rim and bounces off. Tommy wins Immunity for Vokai! Lairo is heading back to Tribal Council for the 4th time this season. Jeff confirms that nobody is going to the Island of the Idols. Jack says Karishma can't do challenges and he's ready for a W for Orange.

#S39 Dean tells his Lairo tribe mates he appreciates the positive vibes but he didn't make it happen. You stepped up, Janet says. Jack confesses to us that he's a Division I basketball player and he blew it, and he, Tom and Karishma are at the whim of the former Vokai. Dean tells Tom that he's probably safe - Vokai will probably either want to get a threat out or cut the fat. Tom says they have to rock the boat to make sure Karishma goes. 

#S39 Jamal walks up tells Tom and Dean that it is clear what they have to do to minimize the challenge damage. There's no case Karishma can make, he tells us. Karishma tells Jack she has no one at Lairo and wants to work with the former Vokai 150%. I'm not an athlete, she says, I know my weakness. Jamal tells us that voting out Karishma is not mean, just reality. Karishma tells Jamal, Jack and Janet that she'll write down Dean or Tom, whichever one they want.

#S39 Karishma tells us she assumes she's the target so she's playing up the social game. Janet talks to Tom and observes he's old school, with no hidden agenda. But he has more of a tribal mentality and would flip back to his old tribe after a merge. Kellee wants to work with Dean and says there's something about him that makes you want to trust him, but that makes her wary of him as well. He's not the right person to bring to the merge. 

#S39 Walking on the beach, Janet tells Kellee and Noura that Tom is with her. Kellee says she has Dean. And Karishma wants to work with all of them. They don't know who to vote out first, however. Noura reminds us that she lost her vote tonight at Island of the Idols, which puts the former Vokai at 4-3 against the original Lairo, but they still have the numbers. Do you get out weakness or threat? 

#S39 Time for Tribal Council. As the former Vokai light up their torches, Rob & Sandra (remember them?) sneak into the back door of their spy hut. Jeff says either Vokai stays strong, or the Lairo three find a crack. Tom says the Vokai tribe has been fantastic to them, open to talk, but no crack. Jack says everyone is open to a conversation, but whether that changes his mind, he doesn't know. Jeff says it's like a job interview with the Lairo three as the candidates. Karishma agrees, it's tell me how you can help me and then I'll decide if it's good enough. But the name of the game in the minority is self preservation.

#S39 Jeff asks Janet what is her purpose behind the vote? She says to avoid sitting here with you, and that means we need to win, and to do that, we have to be strong. Jeff starts to ask Noura a question and she starts laughing for no reason, so Jeff drills in on that. She says we don't know what challenges are coming up and some are more well-rounded than others - some are physical, young and great at shooting and some are older and can pull their weight around camp more. Jeff asks Karishma who she's talking about. Karishma says it's Dean (young) and Tom (old). Who's old, Tom asks. 

#S39 Jeff points out that Noura only mentioned the two guys. Karishma says she could already have been swept to the side and not worth considering. Tom says he's never had to plead to be in a group; you have show who you are, carry yourself a certain way, have character and leadership. Jeff asks Janet if Tom is confident because he's older. She says no, it's not an age thing. We are who we are. Dean says as a marketing person, he's used to pitching himself, both to the group and individually. Janet says he never spoke with her, but Tom and Karishma did. Dean says forced conversations feel awkward. But you made time with the others, Janet says.

#S39 In the hut, Rob says Dean is gone. Jamal says his criteria is connections to the other side; is it more of an advantage if they do or do not? Dean says he thought it was a unanimous vote for Karishma last TC and was blindsided, but someone brought Karishma in and flipped the tribe and now someone and Karishma are loyal together. There you go, Dean, Rob quietly cheers. Karishma says I don't even know who I owe.  Tom says it's not true that she got a whisper only a minute before Tribal. Karishma swears she doesn't know and doesn't care.

#S39 Jeff says the tension is permeating. Kellee says there can be many truths that exist simultaneously, everyone has their own truths and Survivor is about taking leaps of faith. It's time to vote. Tom is up first. Noura writes "No Vote :-(" on her parchment. 

#S39 It's time to tally the votes. No HII are played. First vote, Tom. Karishma. Karishma. Tom. Tied 2-2. 

#S39 Tom. That's 3 votes Tom, 2 votes Karishma. Tom.  Fifth voted out, Tom.  Karishma finds a way to survive another TC.

#S39 They're not going to win any challenges now, Rob whispers to Sandra. Sometimes, Jeff lectures, this game comes down to just surviving a moment, like tonight's Tribal. And if you can, tomorrow's another day. Grab your torches and head back to camp. The votes for Tom were Karishma, Janet, Jamal, Kellee and Jack, with Tom and Dean voting for Karishma.

#S39 Tom says I guess naively felt Karishma was the one going home because she was holding people back in the challenges, but there's all kinds of strategies to the game and they have a strategy for why they kept her. But I am totally proud of myself, the first Canadian to play, and if I take credit for that, I have to take credit for being the first Canadian voted out as well.

#S39 Next time on Survivor, if you step into the ring and put on the gloves, then you better be ready to fight.

Her lesson is about having the courage to be daring. Sandra uncorks a sand timer....if the sand runs out before she makes a dision to take Robs challenge...she takes it..before knowing what it is. She is here for the adventure. Rob says a "block a vote" will be hidden at next challenge, she needs to grab it w/o being seen, in the middle of a challenge. If she fails she will lose her vote. Big stakes. She takes a name from the bag for the next person to come to ioi. Sandra says Elaine came to play and if her tribemates arent careful she will be there at the end.


Lairo day 15. Jamal is tapping out a rythum on a cane pole and shows Kellee how to dance. Jack asks Jamal to use his durag to lift the pot. Jamal stands up and looks at him. Jack is sorry and feels bad he said it just as soon as he said it. Jamal says this character is so ingrained in our culture. They talk about things late into the night. Jack has a new perspective. Jack says he is very privilege, this talk brought them together more as friends. Jamal says Jacks apology has made up for alot of things, he will remember it the rest of his life. 


Vokai day 16. they dont know what chicken is the rooster. Elaine and Elizabeth talk about ioi. Elaine tells her about the advantage.

Elaine says the line is drawn in the sand. Jeff says it only takes one person to switch sides and it messes everything up. Tommy says if they switch they will be Vokai. Elaine says if one of her tribe goes home she has to suck it up buttercup and so would they. They all say they are willing to draw rocks. Elaine says she doesnt like rocks and she pulls the advantage out of her bra. She reads it out loud...she wants to block Jasons vote. Rob says just because she blocked his vote doesnt mean he is the target. They whisper to vote Elaine. Elaine gets a look on her face. Lauren cries. Dan would be disappointed to go home tonight.

Vokai, Night 16. Elaine says she blocked Jason's vote and Jason went home. She explains to her tribe that she had the opportunity and had to take it. Now they're shaking in their shoes, she tells us. Luaren says she, Tommy and Dan were on the outside which is a shame because she had built a good relationship with Missy. She feels she was lied to. 

Lairo, Night 16. It's pouring down rain and the castaways are miserable. The next day, they have to restart the fire. Jamal takes lead but usunsuccessful. Kellee offers to try it but Jamal starts telling her what to do so she walks off. She comes back and starts the fire. They have one scoop of rice left and an argument over how much rice they are eating breaks out, with Jamal the object of Noura's ire.

Noura decides to play the "woman" card and proposes playing their own game and voting out Jamal. Janet talks her down until after the merge and they agree on Dean instead. A boat arrives and Janet has been selected to go to the Island of the Gods, and Janet pretends to be distressed. 

Going to the Island of the Idols puts a target on your back, Janet tells us. Then her scowl turns into smiles when she meets Rob and Sandra. She tells Rob & Sandra she's in a good spot, her tribe trusts her. Rob says you have to think ahead. Today's lesson is about calculated risks - knowing why you are making moves in the game. The minute you stop analyzing situations is the minute you're gone. 

They play a Risk/Reward game. If she wins, she earns a safety without power advantage - protecting her from being voted out at one TC. She leaves TC before the vote and returns to camp alone. This can be used up to 7 players left in the game. But if she loses the Risk/Reward game, she loses her vote at the next TC. Do you want to play the game or play it safe? 

If I win and walk away before the vote, Janet muses, does that put a bigger target on me at the next TC? I could be screwing my alliance. But I could also be voted out. She decides to not play because it would put a bigger target on her. Rob is smiling because she understood the lesson, calculated the risk and made a decision. Sandra notes Janet is the first to just say no.  Janet returns to her tribe. Sandra says the winner this season will be a female. Rob says let's go make some rice.

As Janet's boat approaches Lairo camp, she decides to flash her tribe to confirm she has no idol with her. Kellee is worried Janet's story won't be consistent with hers. Janet explains her game choice and that she chose not to play, keeping to Kellee's decision to keep Rob and Sandra a secret. 

Vokai, Day 18. The talk in the morning is of how grabby Dan was in his sleep last night. Lauren tells us bonding is one thing but Dan does some uncomfortable things, if it comes to one of her, him and Tommy, her #1 is Tommy. There are still 3 chickens left. Tommy asks which one is Dan - he's the one that is going to get killed next. Lauren says the black feathered one like her can stay. It's Operation Save Lauren & Tommy, Lauren tells us.

Gathering water, Lauren tells Tommy that the others know the two of them are close so they have to put a plan into action to paint Dan as a flip flopper. Tommy is worried but Lauren tells him she won't let him go home before emerge. Time to lie, cheat and steal to make Dan look sneaky, Tommy tells us. He whispers to Aaron and Elaine separately that Dan is plotting against Aaron. To Missy he and Lauren says Dan goes back and forth and cannot be trusted. 

Missy tells us she sees what is going on - Lauren and Tommy want to get out Dan but the two are super tight. She tells Elizabeth that Dan is irrelevant - Tommy and Lauren are too close. She thinks Lauren can pull in the people she and Tommy are close to. Without Tommy, Lauren will be said she doesn't have a comfort blanket. We're doing this, Elizabeth says. Perhaps, Missy says. Without Tommy, Missy tells us, Lauren will have nowhere else to go.

Day 19 and it is time for a rain-drenched Immunity Challenge. Tribes will race to shoot coconuts into a basket, which will drop the puzzle pieces when heavy enough. Tribes must then solve a large and heavy block puzzle. First to finish wins Immunity. The rain has stopped. For immunity, Survivors ready?  Go!

There are three shooters from each tribe rotating to land coconuts. Lairo has 2 to Vokai's 1. It's the size of the coconut that matters. Vokai gets on a run as Lairo struggles. Vokai's bucket begins moving and gains momentum, releasing the puzzle pieces. Lairo releases their puzzle pieces, which have to be carried to the puzzle platform.

Vokai starts working on their puzzle with a lead. But which tribe can figure out where the heavy blocks go? It's the tribe mates who did not do the shooting that are working the puzzle. Lauren is barking out orders for Vokai but Lairo is making up time. Vokai is close to victory. Elaine says a piece is wrong but Lauren insists on having Jeff check. They do not have it.

Lairo gets a dose of adrenaline as Vokai tries to figure out there mistake. Lairo is sliding in their last piece but Vokai manages to swap their errant pieces just before. Vokai wins Immunity by one piece and just seconds.

Kellee says she has an Idol that's good for only one more TC and she feels pretty safe but it would be a shame for an idol to go to waste. Jamal tells us the plan is to unanimously vote out Dean. He's hard to read, smarmy and has people on edge. Karishma asks Jamal who it is and trusts him when he says Dean. Jamal tells us he brings his HII to every TC but this one should be the safest. That's what you can do when you're in the majority. He congratulates Noura for making it to the merge.

Jamal says this is not going to be an emotional vote - it makes no sense to deviate from Dean. Dean asks Jack if he's going home or voting out Noura and Jack says Noura is 100% who he's thinking. Jamal agrees that she's a loose cannon. Jack says the guys have to try to stick together. Jack tells us that they have been very fervent making Dean feel like one of the guys and pointing the finger on Noura. Dean tells us that unless these guys have really good poker faces, he feels OK.

Dean tells Kellee that she can backstab him after they get to the merge and she agrees, deal. She tell us she has her idol that has to be used tonight. She likes Dean, his GF is a mutual friend and she doesn't want her idol to go to waste. She has an inspiration - silence while she works it through in her head. If she gave Dean her idol, would he write down the name she wanted to go home - either Jack or Jamal? Jack is fun and empathetic and it's not smart to keep someone so connected in the game. And she doesn't trust Jamal at all.

Kellee's plan is to give Dean the idol right before DC, but convince Noura that she goes home if Dean has an idol, and then get her to write down Jack or Jamal's name. That would be brilliant, she tells us. It's a mitigated risk. She puts her plan in action, telling Dean he's Janet, Jack and Jamal's target. Kellee thinks giving Dean her idol will bond him to her for a little bit. She tells him about her idol and he asks if she wants to pull something crazy. I kind of do, Kellee grins.

Kellee thinks she could be setting off a string of dominoes with this move. Time for Tribal Council. Rob and Sandra sneak into their spy hut. Let the show begin, he tells her. Kellee agrees it's unlikely a Vokai member will suddenly shift sides to Lairo, bonds were made during the first 12 days. Dean adds that Vokai had so much success early on, that makes the bonds tighter. Noura says they are a group based on individual partnerships. But Dean can barely make eye contact with her, so why would he trust him?

Jeff says that's pretty clear. Dean says why would I go back to a tribe that blindsided me instead of someone who already brought up a fellow Vokai member, Jamal and Noura. It's apparent we're big personalities, Noura acknowledges of her and Jamal, and it's great for Dean to capitalize on that. But the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference. I can hate Jamal but that's weaker than being indifferent to Dean. Wow, says Karishma.

Jamal asks Noura, you have actually been trying to get me out? Is Dean right? Dean is trying to get in between us, Noura responds. That's not an answer, Jamal retorts. It's gone through my mind, Noura admits, but I put way more effort into being a cohesive unit and we shouldn't let someone we don't trust as well get in the way of that. I'm open and honest where I'm at. 

Jack says knowing Noura feels is great, but in a merge situation, if you're trying to keep a secret, it is marginally scary. As Kellee pointed out, we've developed more of a trust with Noura, so I think Noura benefits my game to have my back. Thanks, Jack, Noura says. Jamal says he's not convident he'll be here tomorrow let alone have a team in place when there's a merge. I'm very fearful of an all-girls alliance right now. I know the power of women when they get together and in this tribe, 4-3, guys are outnumbered. 

Kellee thinks the idea of a women's alliance is sexist. There is so much fear about a women's alliance outpacing how many times there's actually a women's alliance. And nobody ever talks about a men's alliance, nobody ever fears a men's alliance. It's a thing for 3 women to sit at the very end but nobody mentions it when it's 3 men. Why is this thing being split arbitrarily by gender? Jamal says while I back Kellee 100%, the key word is arbitrary. I don't think it is arbitrary. 

At Jamal's request, Jeff asks Noura if she's ever considered an all-women's alliance. Noura says it sounds cool, of course she has. We all think about many things. I'd be dumb to not think about it at some point. I believe in confident women who make things happen in the world. And that's why I'm afraid, Jamal says. You're allowed to be, Noura allows. 

Karishma says the seismic cultural in America towards women makes a women's alliance a bigger deal, with the #MeToo movement, women feeling empowered to speak up, it plays a part in how you play Survivor. Exactly, whispers Sandra. But it is arbitrary as Kellee said. This is the world that young girls know now, Jeff says. Janet says it is negative to assume women will bond based on gender, that puts women down, to say women can't think that maybe Jamal has something to offer. It's who you are, not your gender. You can't be a powerful woman without the backing of both men and women. You have to earn respect and dignity.

Jamal says he's passionate about this topic and appreciative of this Tribal conversation. But, Jeff reminds Jack, someone has to be voted out. Jack says just because I vote someone out does not mean I don't value our relationship. Kellee hopes it's true that you can have a bond with someone and still vote them out. It is time to vote.

Karishma says Dean took three shots at her and missed, so she's voting for him now. Jamal and Kellee vote. Jack, Janet, Dean and Noura vote. It's time to tally the votes.  

Dean tells Jeff he has a little something something, and Karishma has a look of shockon her face. Kellee pretends to not know what is going on as Noura gives Jack a look. Even Rob is taken by surprise in his spy shack. Just trying to make it to the merge, Dean says, handing Jeff an Immunity Idol. Why didn't he play it last time, Noura wonders. I don't know Kellee replies.

This is a HII, Jeff confirms, and all votes for Dean will not be counted. Noura smiles and Jack and Jamal look uncomfortable. Jamal says Jeff, hold on.  Holy blank, Sandra whispers to Rob, they got all kinds of idols! Jamal gives Jeff his HII and Karishma exclaims OMG! Jamal hands it to Jeff and says he's playing it for Noura. You are, she purrs. What just happened, Kellee wonders!

Jeff confirms it is a HII and any votes for Noura will not count. Rob tells Sandra that was a mistake. Jeff reads the votes. First vote: Dean.  Does not count. Dean. Dean. Dean. Dean. Jamal looks resigned while Karishma can't believe it. Jeff reads the next vote: Jack.

Janet has her eyes intently on Jeff. Karishma cannot believe Jack's name was just read. Jack looks like death has come to dinner. Woah, Sandra whispers from the spy shack. Kellee looks at the others with uncertainty. 

The seventh person voted out and first member of the jury, Jack!

Jamal tells Jack he tried. Janet says she's so sorry. Dang, Sandra says, they got his a$$. Jamal can't even look up as Jack takes his torch to Jeff, then stumbles as he hands it over. Jack, the tribe has spoken, as he quitly leaves the area. I'm sorry you wasted your idol on me, Noura tells Jamal. 

It's nights like tonight, Jeff concludes, that have kept Survivor relevant going on 20 years because you take a group of people, force them to make their own society, and that society is a reflection on the greater society. Then you've got to vote them out.

RIP Rudy Boesch, January 20, 1928 - November 1, 2019.  A survivor icon. An American hero.

Next time on Survivor, a milestone is hit (merge) and all hell breaks loose. Jack says I'm really sad I'm out of the game. Maybe Dean sees me as a threat, which is kind of cool, but everyone who was there tonight wanted me to be there except for one or two people (Kellee & Dean). Overall, this was way freakin' harder than I ever thought it would be. But I'm happy with how I did, I think I was able to show my true colors, and I'm freakin' pumped to be on the jury!

Episode 8 


Tonight its back to back episodes of Survivor. Lairo night 19. Dean says he had to play the card like he saved himself. Kellee saved his life. Noura says she was the other vote for Jack, she was adised to vote Jack. Jamal wants to know who advised her, she says it was Kellee. Kellee's jaw drops, tells Noura to stop talking and then asks  to see Janet and Jamal. Kellee denies telling Noura that right before TC.  Jamal says something about it doesnt add up. You never try to play an underground game with Noura. Lairo Day 20, everyone is looking for an HII. Kellee finds one. Tree mail: Time to merge. Both boats join on the beach for the merge feast. New buffs are blue. Dan talks to Janet, she tells him Jamal wants to work with him, Dan says why would he want to with Jamal.  Vokai 2.0s plan was to stay 7 strong then bring in Janet and Kellee. Tom discribes the plan to Kellee and Janet. Kellee says why would she take her good alliances and go to the bottom of the  new Vokai 9. 


Lumuwaku day 21, Kellee and Missy talk about Dan being inappropriate touching. You cant say anything about it, Missy says she is not an object. Kellee says its a pattern 5 of the girls dont like it. Kellee is crying over it, the camera guy says that if anything does happen to come to him. Tom tells Lauren that he is worried, he says vote Kellee. Lauren says can she trust Kellee as much as she thought she could. Kellee and Janet hug, Janet says she cant ignore your feelings. Janet says at first she thought Dan was just an old style touchy person but its hurting the girls. Elizabeth says if she can play up the Dan card she will. Kellee wants to vote Dan out but she is not going to make a game decision based on her feelings. 


Lauren talks to Missy about her 2 hr talk with Kellee. Lauren says she is being dead ass, she says they are coming after Missy. Missy says if Kellee thinks she is going to get Missy out first she will vote her out. We get a printed announcement from producers saying they talked to all players individually and as a group. They cautioned about personal boundaries and reminded that producers are available at all times. 


Sweat is poring from everyone. Elapsed time is 15 min. Missy is out. Down to 3. Elizabeth has 1 left. Aaron drops 1. Elizabeth is out. Down to Aaron and Jamal both with 2 balls left. Elapsed time 25 min. Jamal drops, falls off the platform and drops to the ground. Aaron asks if he is good and runs over to Jamal. Kellee says it to late in the game to work with Missy. 


Lumuwaku day 22, they congrat Aaron on his win.  MIssy is scared its going to be her. They want to go after Kellee. Lauren says that her and Tom are on the bottom and want to get out Kellee. The word goes around to get Kellee out. Jamal doesnt want to make personal votes, why would he keep Dan, will Noura vote with him? Noura says yes, she will vote Dan. Why wait just do it. Jamal talks to Janet and she changes her vote to Dan. Its hard for Janet, she likes Dan but its a moral decision, she will do what is best for the girls. Janet tells Elizabeth the vote will be Dan but she doesnt believe Janet. Elizabeth has felt safe this entire time. Elizabeth is writing down Kellee. Elizabeth tells Elaine who tells Dan. Dan says screw them.


Jamal goes to Karishma and Kellee to vote Dan. Kellee is now worried, Dan is way to calm, she is getting nervious. Kellee looks for an HII. Jamal asks Tom to vote for Dan. Tom says he knew merge was going to be nuts. Tom says the vote could go either way. No matter what happens tonight Tom is going to make a lot of people mad. Kellee finds an HII, she now has 2. She cant be voted out with 2 HII in her pocket, she may have to play 1 tonight.


Time for TC. Jack comes in, Rob and Sandra are in their hut. Dan says there is a weird vibe going on. Trust outways deception. Missy says trust is dope. Karishma agrees, you cant have the depection with out the trust first. Lauren says what is happening is terrifying, when you talk to 1 or 2 ppl alone its all suspicions. Kellee says it makes you present, if you aren't you probably aren't playing the game you should be. Kellee says its about trust. Tom says its been discussed that Vokai has more ppl. Janet says at time goes on tribal lines can be softened. Dean says he is looking to build some trust tonight. Dan says you are either going to be proven really wrong or really right but you want know until the votes are read. 


Time to vote. we see Kellee vote Dan. Dan votes for Kellee. Kellee asks Lauren if they are ok, she nods. Time to tally the votes. Commercial


Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Dan, Kellee, Dan Kellee...tied, Dan, Kellee, Dan, Kellee, still tied. Dan, Kellee, Kellee, 8th person voted out and 2nd jury is Kellee. Dan says yup put that torch down. Jeff says as much as  you want to believe in trust you gotta worry about deception. . Back at camp, Janet wonders what happened, nobody is talking. Janet says her info from the girls made her feel betrayed. Lauren says she was not comforable with the way things were going, Janet says she was trying to something good for them. Lauren says she wasnt comfortable with voting Dan out for those reasons. Janet talks to Dan about how inappropriate he has been and yet he came back from TC. Dan says he has never had a hint of this in his life. Janet says then she got played.


Dan talks to MIssy and Elizabeth that Janet he feels like his soul was ripped out, he says the only thing he can do is deeply apologize. They say they slept next to Dan in the bungalow every night. Elaine comes up and says it was taken and miss construed. Elizabeth says it was all game with her. Dan says that vote proved they want to keep playing this game wiht him. Janet comes to Dan, Dan says the girls said they never came to her, they have slept in the shelter every night with Dan. Janet goes to Missy and Liz. Dan wants it left alone, Janet asks them point blank and Missy says yes. Janet leaves and Liz says just know we are fine. Janet says sexual innuendos has no place anywhere. She sleeps apart. 


Aaron and Missy go for a walk and pass Janet as they go HII hunting. Janet follows them down the beach but loses them, she continues to look for an HII and finds one. 


Lumuwaku Day 23. A note hangs from a tree says you found me, I'm yours. Jamal and Karishma find it, Jamal grabs it. It says bring this with you to ioi, he gets on the boat. He gets to ioi and is so excited. Out come Rob and Sandra and he cant believe they are there. Jamal pulls out the note and opens it. You just learned a tough Survivor lesson, if its looks to good to be true it probably is. You just lost your vote. Rob says he got burned, there is nothing they can do about that. Does he want to get someone else? Sandra gives Jamal a blank piece of paper and a pencil. Rob says its opportunity, anything he wants it to be. What can he do with that paper and pencil? He rights a fake legacy advantage.....he tells them he risked his vote to play 50/50 chance, he wins but he has to give it to someone else. He gives it to Dean for his bday. Dean says you can barely read it, Jamal says he had to copy it down from a board. Dean says where did he get paper? where did he get a pencil. Dean tells us Jamal just put a huge target on Deans back. Aaron says now every single person knows that Dean has an advantage and thats a death sentence. Jamal has to go. 


Time for Immunity challenge. They have to hold on to a handle over the water, at regular intervals Jeff with put them closer the water. Last man and woman still holding on wins immunity. Everyone has their front to the water, Jeff cranks the handle lowering them towards the water. Lauren freaks out says hers is rolling, she drops, Dan is out too. Jamal drops, Elaine does a flip into the water she is out. Jeff cranks the handle again and they lean farther toward the water. Karishma drops, so does Janet, Dean also drops. Elapsed time 10 min. Jeff cranks them out again, 20 min in and Jeff cranks it again. Noura drops. Tom drops. Aaron wins for the guys. Elizabeth drops and Missy wins Immunity for the girls. 


Back at camp. Janet and Jamal meet on the beach. Jamal is worried he will go home tonight. Janet tells him she thinks it will be a split vote. At camp they decide the guys will vote Jamal and the girls will vote Karishma. Tom tells Janet she is safe and to vote for Jamal. Janet has to put her trust in ppl that were angry with her. 


Time for TC. Noura says there were a lot of upset ppl after last TC. Janet says there was a lot of miscommunication. Janet thought everbody was voting for Dan, Missy says hold on, what was your plan before that. Janet says to put Missy name down, Janet thought her plan was good for all concerned, she was wrong for getting involved. Aaron says it was a plan that went wrong and she is trying to spin it into something to hurt Dan. Jamal says if it was a real issue he would have heard about it, we are not intitled to know things just because we are men or in power. Aaron says this is not an issue he takes lightly. Dan says is the bottom line that we arent going to let this go? Jeff says let me put the context of what I am looking for. Everyone is talking around it and that creates more uncertainty about it. Dan says things were used that shouldnt have been used in this game, he doesnt want to ever be a part of anything that makes ppl feel bad. 


Jeff says there is a sensativity about this issue. Jamal says far be it for him to speak for woman, he can give advise about how he hears the issue, take a step back and look at it. Its hard for woman to bring it up, we have to listen to woman when they are ready to talk. Dan says since it wont be left go...Jeff say he wont let it go, they will be here till day 39. Dan says most of his clients and workers are woman and his person feeling is, if anyone ever felt uncomfortable with anything he has done he is sorry for it. It horrifies him and he is sorry, weither he know he did it or not, he is sorry. He feels it all turned into game play. Janet is trying to decide if she should stay in the game, never would she have wanted to do this, everyone hates her, they tell her they dont. Jeff says this is why its complicated to play, is she in? Yes she is. Jeff summarizes what happened.


Jeff says no matter what we all need to look at these things. You have this thing that will stay with you, can you seperate it? Lauren looks at Janet and says that there are ppl that thank her for what she did. Time to vote. We see Jamal write no vote. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? Janet plays her HII on herself. Votes: Janet, Janet, Kirishma, Kirishma, Kirishma, Jamal, Jamal, Jamal, its tied. Jamal, 9th person voted out and 3rd member of jury is Jamal. Jamal walks off with nothing to say to anyone. 


Next time on Survivor: When there is a twist of fate the game is one and the gloves come off.

Episode 9


Lumuwaku night 24: Janet says TC was hard, at one point she didnt know if she was going to stay in the game but she doesnt quit anything. Janet calls herself a free agent. Karishma is freaked out when a mouse runs across her face at night. Day 25, it rained hard all night Elizabeth got the worst of it, she is cold and wet. Noura says Karishma is lucky to be there, she does nothing, acts like an old person. Karishma says she is in trouble and has only herself to blame. Noura sends Karishma after coconuts. Karishma says she is a goat. Not only does Karishma find coconuts but also a HII. Karishma says she can finally make a name for herself. She has been gone from camp for an hour and found only 2 coconuts, she fakes being sick and camp wants to call medics. Karishma says she feels better after drinking some water. 


Day 27, it's Immunity challenge time. they will stand on a narrow beam while spinning a ball on a wooden track, at intervals they will step back on the beam. Let's make it more interesting....today they will be divided into each group, one person from each group will win immunity, each group will go to TC and each will vote someone out. In Orange its Missy, Tom, Elaine, Elizabeth and Karishma. In Purple its Dean, Dan, Lauren, Noura and Janet. Karishma is out. The last person standing not only wins Immunity but also PB&J for their group and they will go to TC last so they get to observe the first group. 


They move up on the beam. Elizabeth is out. Tom drops. Aaron drops, Dan drops, Lauren drops. Dean Lauren and Janet for purple and Missy and Elaine for Orange. Janet drops. Move down on the beam. Dean is out, Noura wins Immunity for purple, she drops before winning PB&J for her group. Orange wins PB&J. Missy drops. Elaine wins Immunity for Orange. Purple win go first at TC. Purple will go back to the old Liaro camp. 


Old Lairo camp looks so different. Aaron says he doesnt want to be there, it brings back bad memories. Aaron says with Karishma on one tribe and Janet on the other could be good for them. Noura says Aaron is a clear shot. Janet says woo hoo everybody wants to get rid of Aaron. Dan tells Janet she is someone he wants to play the game with. Dean says if Aaron goes home he will be the next big threat. Dean and Dan say Janet can with this game, she made fire, every ones momma. Dan says they could switch the vote back to Janet but is that good for his game? 


At Lumuwaku, they are enjoying their sandwiches. Missy says TC should be easy, Karishma right? wrong. Missy says pull Karishma with them,  vote out Tom and that opens up Lauren. Missy tells Karishma to talk to everyone one on one but dont give them a name. Karishma walks away, says Missy was talking AT her not TO her. She wont take that from anyone. Karishma talks to Elaine about it. Elaine says she is voting for Missy tonight. Elaine tells Tom about the plan to vote him out but Elaine and Karishma are voting for MIssy, Tom is on board for that. 


Missy says sorry to Karishma, Karishma plays along with her. Karishma says tonights vote has to be logical and not emotional. Karishma says getting rid of Tom has its points but she doesnt trust anyone, she will take her HII with her. Over at Liaro, Aaron says Janet is going home. Janet says its not rocket science this group is done with the meat chills like Aaron. 



Purple goes to TC. Dan says the biggest impact of the two groups is the teams seem to have scrambled in a way that things should go as planned before. Dean says when you dont have ppl you trust its concerning. Aaron says its his first time sitting at TC w/o a necklace, its an oppurtinity for his name to be written down. Noura says there are always suprises. (Sandra whispers she thinks its Janet).  Noura says there is a boundary between her and Janet. Time for purple to vote. We see Aaron vote Janet and Janet vote Aaron. Time to tally the votes. 


Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes: Janet, Aaron, Aaron, Aaron, 10 person voted out and 4th person to Jury is Aaron. (Rob says I told you it was Aaron) Aaron sits on Jury and Orange comes in, they are shocked. Elizabeth says her heart is beating hard, Aaron was one of her number ones, thats not how Jury is supposed to look. Elaine says you broke us up and things got switched. Missy brings up her and Karishma not having a good day.  Karishma says she likes to say her piece and walk away. Missy says when you call someone out, you say someone needs to go cuz they are threat not a bully. Missy says she knows who she is. (Sandra says there is not room for both of them) Tom says they both view things differently and will not get along. 


Missy says that she understand that Karishma doesnt want to be voted out so you lie but she has always said she want to work with Karishma. Elaine says the only way to squash it is to vote one out. MIssy says a few days ago two minorities wore immunity necklaces one the same day at the same time and it was not mentioned. Jeff says he didnt notice and doesnt know if he would have mentioned it. It is time to vote.  We see Tom vote for Missy and Missy vote for Tom. Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to play a HII? nope. Votes: Missy, Tom, Tom, Missy, 11th person voted out and 5th member of Jury is MIssy. Missy says wow who did it. Tom says you were coming after me. Elaine says it was me. (Rob says they are keeping Karishma for last) Missy tells Elizabeth to kill Elaine methodically and slowly. 


Jeff says they are 27 days into a 39 day game and the foot has not come off the pedal for nothing. Next time on Survivor: When animals attack, you'll need to tavel in a pack to reach the top of the food chain.

Episode 10


Lumukaku after 1st TC. Lauren is worried that Tom is gone, they get excited that Missy is gone. Karishma cant be happier, she finally has some options. Elizabeth feels stranded as 2 of her closest allies are gone. Day 28 Tom says last night was huge. They talk about getting Karishma out. Dean says they can not change votes again. Tom says Elizabeth may have to go next. A boat comes to the beach. Tom reads it, choose one person to come to ioi, must be unanimous or draw a name from the bag. Lauren wants to go, they all agree (not Karishma but she keeps her mouth closed)


At ioi a chicken bites Sandra's finger, Sandra drops her papaya and the chicken eats it. Lauren arrives and OMG OMG about seeing Rob and Sandra. Sandra wants to know how she is doing in the game. Lauren says she is a great social player. Rob says her lesson is about situational awareness. She will predict who wins the next Immunity, if she is right she gets an Idol good for 2 TC, if wrong she loses vote. Rob says then next immunity challenge they will be on little stands and hold a bar up to keep from dropping a ball, it will also have an eat or play component (Breakfast!) Lauren goes thru the castaways and eliminates several of them playing. Noura could win it, Elizabeth could win it. Rob sweetens the pot by letting her pick 2 people. Lauren picks Noura and Elizabeth. 


Sandra says if Lauren gets it right the idol will be under the big rock at tree mail. Back at camp: Dean asks Janet if the Jamal thing is real or fake, Janet says fake. Dean thinks its real. Dean makes a fake fake idol. Dean says its his turn to shake things up a bit. Lauren tells them that she knows what the challenge is and she got to make it an eat or play game, she tells them about breakfast foods. She will be honest with Tom, Tom says tell nobody. Tom will talk about breakfast all day long. Janet says it will be hard to smell that food and play. Elaine doesnt want to get voted out just for food. 


Noura says she will play. Lauren says bring on the bacon and bring on the immunity challenge. Immunity Challenge time: Jeff tells them what they have to do, then shows them breakfast. No reaction, Lauren tells Jeff about ioi. Sitting out are Tom, Dan, Dean, Lauren, Janet, Elaine. Karishma, Naura and Elizabeth will compete. Ready go. Karishma is out already. Lauren says yes yes yes. Karishma says she can handle it, smelling the food and feeling like a failure. Jeff says it could be 30 days of Survivor, it can to it to people. 


Elizabeth drops the ball. Naura wins immunity but she doesnt drop. She says she is playing for those eating. Jeff tells her it doesnt work that way to drop her ball. Janet says she chose to eat and it was probably one of the scariest things she has done. 


Back at camp Lauren gets her Idol and Tom says she doesnt need it tonight. Lauren says it should be Karishma but why not take the shot at Elizabeth while you can. Eliane says she would rather Karishma goes but Elizabeth is good. Elizabeth says its an easy opportunity for them to get rid of her. Noura tells Karishma to dring water, Noura scoops up Karishmas bag and goes thru it. Dan tells Karishma that the votes are split between Janet and Elizabeth. Karishma tells Elizabeth she has an Idol. Dan goes over after Lauren reads Karishmas lips. Karishma says she said Jan. Dan says Karishma is doing everything wrong, thats it for him. 


Dean agrees with everything Dan is saying about Karishma. Karishma says she would hate to lose Elizabeth but.... Karishma says she has a dilemma, using the HII and playing it correctly.


Time for TC, Night 30. Jury comes in. Jeff says today 6 ppl chose to eat. Elizabeth says she lost her main alliance so she had to win immunity. Karishma says had to win it, to challenge herself. Noura says she feels strongly that she has a good footing in the game, she chose to play so the others could eat. Dan says there is a trench and if someone is on the other side its hard to bring the over that trench. Tom says some needed that pit stop to eat. Dean says he has a differnt situation, he has legacy that everyone knows about. Lauren says everyone has their own adgenda and TC is not easy. Tom says trying to get 8 ppl to agree is tough. Elaine says you have to pick a core and roll with them. Elizabeth says she is loyal, you dont know where others fall. 


It is time to vote. Time to tally the votes. Anyonewant to use an HII? Dean stands up and hands Jeff his legacy. Jeff says it has no power. Karishma stands up and gives Jeff her HII. (Rob says yes!) Lauren stands up and gives Jeff her HII. Votes: Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Karishma, Janet, Elizabeth. Tied with Janet and Elizabeth. Revote, they can only vote for Janet or Elizabeth. Time to tally the votes. Votes: Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, 12 person voted out and 6th member of jury is Elizabeth. Rob says its all well and good until someone plays and idol. Jeff says well one thing for sure, it wasnt an easy vote. 


Next time on Survivor: IN and unpredicitable game theres no one to trust except family.

Go big or go home.

Episode 12


Lumukaku night 32. After TC, Tommy tells us if Dean hadnt asked where his vote was he would have gone home. Noura says she is sorry, she let the game get to her. Noura blames it all on Dean. Noura takes Deans shoes and put them at the top of the flag stand, he cant reach them there. Lumukaku day 33. Elaine and Dean go looking for a HII. Janet wakes Tommy up and go looking too. Janet finds one, she can use it until there are 5 ppl left in the game. She tells Tommy she  they it. Elaine and Dean see them and know that they found it. Dean says knowing that puts him in a good spot. 


Day 34 Elaine says Noura is a basket case but who doesnt love a crazy person. Elaine tells Lauren that Tommy will run with it, also that when they get down to 4 they will make Lauren make fire. Lauren now asks more questions. Tommy says he would love to have Janet, Lauren, Dean and him as F4. Tommy says here he gets to lie and he is good at it here. Dean, Tommy and Dan have a F3 and say that Lauren has to go. A boat comes to the beach...Draw a name from the bag to go to ioi. Dean will go to ioi. Dean says its crazy, this late it could be the last trip to ioi. Rob is fishing. He tells us that this feels like home. 


They feed Dean, Sandra asks him how his game is. Dean says he backed out of hte blindside because ...he pulls out the fake legacy. They can not claim or deny its real. Dean says how he thinks he will use it, Rob says never put votes on yourself. Rob tells him the lesson is about jury management. Can he tell a story to the jury that will make them give him the check. Sandra says you have to story tell, make your moves known. Dean will have a choice between 3 advantage...extra vote, idol nullifier or an idol that cant be played on himself. The game is a coin flip, he loses and he loses his vote at next TC. Dean leans towards the idol nullifier, why not. He risks it.....its.....yes, Dean wins the idol nullifier. Dean says he is this close to where he may have to manage a jury, he feels he has a clear plan to win over the jury.


Dean returns to camp, he tells them tells them he got to flip a coin that would get him an extra vote  or idol he could play on someone else, he says he lost. He then tells Dan, Tommy and Lauren he got the idol nullifier. Tommy is scared, he was understimimating Dean, he has got to go. 


Day 35, Immunity challenge time: they have to spin to unravel a coil of rope, then go over obstacles to gather a puzzle piece, then put a word puzzle together. First done wins. Ready, go. Tommy is whipping down the course, he done with the coil. Elaine, Dan, Elaine go down dizzy. they are across the netting and on to the beam. Noura has her piece, Dean has his, Lauren and Dan, Tommy, Elaine and Janet are all on the puzzle now. Everyone is looking around. Dean has it..This game will mess with your mind. Dean wins immunity. Elaine is upset she had it but couldn't get the top letters switched. 


Rob says Dean is doing stretching before the fight scene. Dean plays to the jury and Rob says it was a good lesson. Noura things are changing daily. Dean says when there are 7 ppl left it takes only 4 votes. Dan says you hope to build a foundation to withstand an earthquake, he hopes they dont have an earthquake toinght. Elaine says if she doesnt go tonight they should vote out Noura. Its better to go to Final with Elaine instead of Noura who is a wild card. Janet says everything Elaine is saying could also be said about Janet, Lauren agrees it could also be her. Elaine says the glass is half empty, nothing good ever happens to her, she came for the money but she is trying to put things into perspective, trying to work thru her mom passing 3 months ago, time is what she needs. Janet hugs her. Elaine says she has learned to not take anything for granted. 


Janet says having a few more days on this earth then most of them, she says there were times in her life where she couldnt understand the tragedy and pain but she always believe there was light on the other side, she turns to Elaine and tells her she will find her way thru this. They love Elaine. Elaine says time to vote. We see Noura vote Elaine, Dan vote Noura, , Dean vote Elaine, Elaine vote Noura. Time to tally the votes. Commerical....


Time to tally the votes. Anyone want to use a HII? nope. Votes. Elaine, Noura, Elaine, Noura, tied...Elaine, 14th person voted out is Elaine. She gets hugs, even one from Jeff. Jeff says its been 35 emotional draining days and if you think it gets easier you got another thing coming. Day 36..Jeff comes to camp. He has news...he spoke privately to Dan, Dan is gone, he wont be back to camp and wont be on jury. Tommy says the deck is recrambled, this game. There is a written message on screen "Dan was removed from the game after a report of another incident, which happened off-camera and did not involve a player."
