Sierra was an eleventh hour addition to the Game Changers castSIERRA DIDN’T PROVE TO BE MUCH OF A SHERIFF

In the two hours of Survivor tonight we saw the tribes merge, but then Jeff gave them the bad news.  No one would feast until one member from each tribe gave up the merge reward.  Tai and Culpepper stepped up to the plate and were banished from the banquet area; however they were close by, as soon we saw Debbie mooning Tai.  She seems to be trying desperately hard to be liked by everyone, but in my opinion, it doesn’t seem to be working.  SMH  I will give Debbie kudos for taking Cochran’s advise and apologizing to Culpepper.  Frankly, I didn’t think she would do it.

In the reward challenge the survivors were spit into two groups, with Culpepper, Sierra, Cirie, Sara, Aubry, and Michaela in one group and Andrea, Debbie, Troyzan, Zeke, Tai and Ozzy in the other.  Each group had to dive and untangle ropes to free a net, which was filled with large puzzle pieces in the shape of fish, then drag the net to shore and place them on hooks.  Once this was accomplished they had to place the fish in a certain order to complete a puzzle.  Andrea’s group finish first and they all went off to a Luxury camp to be pampered for the day, along with hamburgers and cold drinks.  I am sure they all appreciated having a shower and something good to eat.  I was happy to see Tai on the winning team after sacrificing himself from the merge banquet.

The first immunity challenge everyone had to stand on their toes on a platform with a rectangular box on their head.  It didn’t seem to be a very long challenge, as people were dropping off the platform within seconds and in the end Andrea won the challenge and Jeff placed the immunity necklace around her neck.

Back at camp Culpepper was rallying the troops to vote out Michaela, but Cirie foolishly told Michaela about the plan to evict her, then Cirie went on on a mission to save Michaela.  Soon rumors began about Hali having an idol, so everyone decided to split the votes between Michaela and Hali and in the end Hali was eliminated, becoming the first member of the jury.

You didn’t do anything wrong

The second immunity involved the pole challenge, which Ozzy had won twice before, however this time he couldn’t outlast Tai and Tai walked away with the immunity necklace.

After the challenge they returned to camp to decide who should be evicted next. Andrea, who won the first immunity challenge, seemed to be on a power-high and told her alliance of Zeke, Aubry, Cirie, Ozzy, Sara and Michaela, they should all vote out Sierra or Culpepper at Tribal Council, but Zeke didn’t think this was a good idea, so he told the other side of Andrea’s plan.  This put Zeke in a very bad position, as it didn’t take long for word to get back to Andrea about his betrayal and then poor Zeke was put on the chopping block!  Sierra was upset when she heard Andrea wanted her out and discussed the situation with Debbie, while swinging in the hammock.  You could see the anger in Sierra’s face and there was no doubt she wanted Andrea out!  Debbie then came up with a plan and suggested they get rid of Ozzy.  Oh no!!  Here I thought dear Ozzy was under the radar for awhile, but it sure didn’t last long.   At Tribal the votes were cast and poor Ozzy was out, with the help of Debbie using her extra vote.

So sad to see you go

I have never been a fan of Andrea’s and I think she has put herself in a very precarious position.  Cirie and Michaela will probably stand by her, but Sara sided with the other side and voted out Michaela and Aubry, will be iffy, as she really has no one and seems to blow in the direction of power.  It looks like Andrea’s fate could be doomed.

Condolences go out to Keri and Snakebit this week.

Don’t forget tomorrow ‘The Amazing Race’ will be on for two hours.

Have a great week!
