Survivor Recap: Nice Guys Finish Last

“I’d rather see him happy than me miserable because I ate too much,” she says with a smile. Michele and Sophie take on Nick and Jeremy in the puzzle, but Sophie and Michele win out. Later, Sarah tells her there was no gameplay in her decision. They, along with Kim, Sarah and Ben are in for quite a feast, until Sarah gives her reward to Nick for his birthday. Michele is glad her ex is gone, but she’s not glad about being blindsided by it. Adam thinks Probst is hiding a live immunity idol in his tribal council podium. Denise quips, “Goodness of her heart, my ass.” Jeremy also knows from experience. Parvati and Danni then find the advantage in the same spot Aubry Bracco found it two seasons ago. She did it on a human level. Nick is equally peeved. Tony’s upset she gave up the food and gave in to her emotions. She even calls them dingbats… dingbats! He gave up a reward once and was voted out. Adam doesn’t trust it… or her. Based on her Game Changers win, he knows she’s a threat, and thinks her giveaway just makes her that much bigger of a target. “Just as a world, we can be nicer to each other,” she tells the camera. I’m ready for some revenge,” he says. That’s just crazy enough to be true… or Adam’s about to look like a damn fool! THE EDGE | The cast-offs get a clue telling them they need to step back and assess, and that history may repeat itself. “There’s gonna be bloodshed and I’m gonna like it,” says Nick, who fears his name might come up next. Where did the castaways find an advantage on the last Edge season? Then Danni has a genius thought. Talk about a game-changer! The advantage allows a player to flip a coin, giving them a 50/50 chance at instant immunity. Either way, if he acts on that impulse, it’s going to be a great moment. She then jokes that she hopes he’ll be miserable. REWARD CHALLENGE | The players all compete for Chinese takeout, diving into the water to collect fish-shaped puzzle pieces. Will this innocent spur-of-the-moment decision cost Sarah her game? They all go hunting, searching in the same spots tokens were found before. “I feel like it is now my duty to take all of these people out who have crossed me.

This is the stuff the Survivor gods dream of! What is even happening!? Nick talks to Tony, while Ben and Adam quibble! While Jeff questions Adam, the whispering kicks into high gear. Nick tells Tyson that Sophie is saying his name, but Adam wants to write Sarah down instead. STRATEGY SESH’ | Kim and her crew talk about splitting the vote between Adam and Nick, but Ben throws out Michele’s name. THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN | Sarah tells Jeff about the chaos that endured on the beach, while Jeremy adds that it’s unlike anything he’s seen in the three seasons he’s played. Tyson uses the confusion as a chance to keep stirring the pot, planting false info in everyone’s ears. (Maybe if it was sung by Survivor superfan Sia, I’d be able to get down with it. And that water is looking chop-py! Michele finds the 50/50 advantage in her bag, but it’s got a hefty price tag: four fire tokens. Michele defers to her fortune cookies and makes the gutsy move of buying the advantage. Denise says she aged a few years in one day. IMMUNITY IS NOW UP FOR GRABS | It’s a classic endurance challenge where players must balance on a triangular platform with their feet perched on increasingly narrower footholds. As we know, you can’t win Survivor unless you swing for the fences, and this is a big, and expensive, swing. Week after week, we’ve been getting this over-produced pop track that’s all cheese. It’s absolute anarchy and the editing of this clusterf— is brilliant! I could literally watch this mania for hours. No one seems to have any idea what’s about to go down, but Nick worries it’s him. Accusations are thrown left and right! He leaves his fire token in Denise’s custody. THEM. The show then plays its signature season-long song, and I really just wish it’d stop. Jeff sits back smiling, as four separate conversations happen simultaneously. Ben and Adam have an exhausting and annoying conversation (OVER. BOTH.) and in sum, everyone says everybody else’s names. It’s a great time to be a Survivor fan, my friends. Nick and Adam figure out that they were both told to vote each other. In Round 2, Tyson eats it right before Jeremy plunges into the water. Michele and Denise are the first to fall out of it. What he thought was an idol was not one, and Adam is then sent to the Edge. Michele whispers to Jeremy! A hundred thousand million bajillion percent (or something), he says. Jeff goes to tally the votes, but Adam stands up and tries to demolish Jeff’s podium. In Sia, we stan.) While I gripe about the soundtrack, Kim beats Ben and snatches that W.

Last week’s jam-packed merge/Edge of Extinction extravaganza considered, I think it’s safe to say that we need more Survivor! Let’s find out who. Sixty minutes just isn’t enough for all the scheming, double-dealing and Probst-ian catchphrases! But someone’s about to join him on the Edge. Imagine a supersized season with 90- or (dare we say it) 120-minute episodes, or at the very least, some Ponderosa-style webisodes. So, Wendell was kicked to the curb, and to be honest, it was all starting to feel pretty Ex on the Beach anyway. With all of the insanity in play, there’s bound to be enough footage to double, or heck, triple the Survivor glory! Dude was getting a rough edit, though in his defense, kickin’ it on an island with a former flame must’ve been a tough hand to play. Water under the well, I suppose.
