Survivor recap: Unprecedented amount of Survivors need medical attention

Survivor: Kao Rong: Brains vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, “Signed, Sealed and Delivered,” Season 32. Survivor recap episode 4 (original airdate March 9, 2016): In Survivor’s 32 seasons we’ve never, ever seen so many players collapse at one time. Jeff Probst was running from one player to the next during a reward challenge — calling on all medical personnel for an assist. It honestly was unsettling. And it was only Day 8, but the scorching heat and blazing sun combined with an exhausting challenge resulted in three players needing medical attention. After the Brains beat out the other two tribes to […]

Survivor recap Episode 3: Survivor: Kao Rong: Brains vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, “Circle of Life,” Season 32, Episode 3 (original airdate March 2, 2016): Brawn headed back to their camp following Tribal Council, with NBA Scot believing they made a bad move voting off Jennifer. He tells Blondie (aka Alecia) that he was the other person who wrote down her name, only because he told Jennifer he would never vote for him — he was being “loyal.” OK, Scot, she isn’t that stupid. Alecia doesn’t buy it and thinks Scot should be the next to go and she just may […]

Survivor recap Episode 2: Bromance, cray-cray Debbie and being out-dumbed

Survivor recap Episode 2: “Kindergarten Camp,” Season 32, Episode 2 (original airdate Feb. 24, 2016): The Brawn tribe was the first to lose a member last episode, they gave the boot to Darnell. It was a last-minute switcheroo, actually, as they were originally gunning for Alecia. Poor Alecia, she’s confused. She doesn’t know where she stands. Her tribe thinks she’s dumber than dumb. More on that later. Catching up with Beauty Tai got busted the last time he tried looking for an immunity idol, so he was a bit more careful when he started back at it again. This time […]

Survivor season finale recap episode 14: Who really deserved to win?

Survivor: Second Chance season finale recap “Lie, Cheat and Steal,” Season 31, Episode 14 (original airdate Dec. 16): It was the most unpredictable finale in Survivor history, one where you’d be OK with a couple of the finalists walking away with the million (as long as it wasn’t Abi). The episode starts with Tasha, Jeremy, Keith, Spencer, Wentworth and Kimmi vying for a spot in the final three. It’s been an amazing season filled with the best mix of talent, class and unusual drama (Terry’s emergency exit, Joe collapsing and Abi just being Abi). Here’s how things went down (note: […]

Survivor: Second Chance recap “Villains Have More Fun,” Season 31, Episode 13 (original airdate Dec. 9): It’s day 33 and only seven are left. Jeremy and Spencer voted with the gals last Tribal Council and took out Joe. While Joe warned them of a potentially all-girl alliance (Tasha, Abi, Kelley and Kimmi), they opted to get rid of the person who they thought was their biggest threat, Joe. Now, Spencer and Jeremy are second guessing that move. Abi sees Joe’s departure as “good riddance.” Kelley thinks it evens the playing field, believing they now all have an equal shot at […]

It’s day 30 and it’s time for the tearjerker episode — the one where loved ones visit the island and the castaways crumble. But first let’s refresh on the last Tribal Council, it’s the first time Spencer made a move and got Fishbach out. Now he’s mending fences with Jeremy, as Jeremy lost his main man (Fish) and is a bit unsettled. After finally losing an immunity challenge after four consecutive wins, Joe actually is still around!!! Unbelievable. […]

Survivor recap episode 10: double elimination shakes up the game

Survivor: Second Chance recap “Like Selling Your Soul to the Devil” Season 31, Episode 10 (original airdate Nov. 25): With Thanksgiving coming tomorrow, CBS graciously decided to treat us to a Survivor feast tonight with a two-hour episode that included two contestants going home. Rain, rain and more rain. Not only did it make it miserable for the contestants from a physical standpoint, but it made it more difficult from a mental and strategic standpoint because leaving the shelter was darn near impossible. Keith, whose feet were waterlogged, went on an epic rant: “People ask me if Survivor is fun. I […]

Survivor: Second Chance recap “Witches Coven,” Season 31, Episode 9 (original airdate Nov. 18): It’s day 21 and we’re down to 11. Kelley Wentworth is soaking up her victorious immunity idol shocker. She gloats: “I just idoled Andrew Savage out of Survivor: Second Chance!” Kimmi thinks it’s time to break up the witches coven: Wentworth, Ciera and Abi-Maria. She might be right as these gals definitely have brewed up a wicked good way to stay in this game. Reward Challenge It’s two teams of five, so someone has to sit this one out in a schoolyard pick. Looks like no […]
