It’s back! I love when Survivor starts in the Fall. Time to get cozy and settle into a new season of glorious television watching! What could be better than a warm, spiked drink and Jeff Probst?
Heeeere we go!
This year, unlike any other, they will let the fans vote for all 20 second-timers! Off to Cambodia…
Some people I am happy to see, #JOE, #woo. and #Shirin (yes she won my heart last time around). Some people not so much #Ciera and #Cass.
Did I mention Joe?
They arrive by boat, then switch to a ship and then must hop on rafts. They are split into two tribes. Of course they have to grab supplies and have only a certain amount of time. There is also an extra bag of food for whoever can swim out further. They scrambled much the same as seasons before.
Ta Keo Tribe (woo, kelly, kelley, peih-gee, vytas, shirin, jeff, terry, spencer, abi-marie- not a complete list) –
Abi Marie losses her purse first thing and starts freaking out, here we go with this girl. She is even trying to play it cool this season so I do wonder if someone is testing her. LoL.
Most of the older people on the tribe, Vytas, PeihGee, Kelly, Woo and a few others, start working on a shelter. Shirin and Spencer grab Jeff and start talking strategy. Jeff can’t believe it but he is on board.
Shirin is gunning for Vytas, she is afraid that he is too popular and has too many ties to others playing that he is a threat.
Over at Bayon (kass, savage, tasha, kimmy, ciera, stephen?, keith, not a complete list) they are all working on making fire and gathering stuff. Joe gets the fire going with items he finds on the island, that is super hot and Varner thinks so too. He does say he is in awe. They seem to be bonding and making friends with each other. Much more relaxed vibe.
Here is a cute baby monkey to look at, thanks Survivor!
Kelley sneaks away from Ta Keo to look for the idol, she uses the guise of collecting palm fronds and coconuts to look around.
She finds a clue to the idol. WOW! Turns out the idol will be hidden at the Immunity Challenge, so she will have to try to snag it with everyone around! Cool!
The first Immunity Challenge!
They have to hop in the water and light every torch back towards the beach, then they must construct a pole out of sticks and try to retrieve a key to unlock a cage.
On the beach, Kelley starts scoping the idol and knows she does not want to blow it. She is careful and waits…
Wiglesworth has the tribes attention…
She snags it!! Imagine the adrenaline!
Meanwhile, Joe wins Immunity for his tribe, Ta Keo.
Jeff then announces a huge surprise, Bayon is heading to Tribal Council that very minute! No time plot or discuss!
Looks like they listened to Shirin and Spencer, Vytas is the first person voted off of Survivor Second Chance.
