Hey, everyone. Lisa’s on vacation so I’ll be covering Survivor this week and next.
At first, I thought last night’s episode of Survivor was going to be so easy to write about. Nick found an idol and, at the end of the hour, the whole tribe voted out Alec because they thought he was too big of a challenge threat. Alec knew he had to win immunity to stay but he didn’t because he ate so much at the reward challenge that he made himself sick and then Christian started telling one of his stories and Alec gave up. Jeff snuffed Alec’s torch and he walked away.
But, after Alec left, the show didn’t end. Instead, it kept going.
That’s when I discovered that last night’s episode was going to be two hours!
The second hour was all about the downfall of Carl. Ever since using his nullifier to blindside Dan, Carl had been feeling pretty proud of himself. He decided that he was the tribe’s “godfather” and that he was the one who would say who should be voted out next. It worked when he wanted to target threats like Dan and Alec. But then Carl decided that his next target would be Alison, it backfired on him.
After Davie won immunity, Carl thought he had a clear shot at Alison. The problem is that Kara didn’t want to vote out Alison and both Christian and Gabby were tired of Carl acting like he was in charge. Angelina, Davie, and Nick all voted for Alison but Alison, Kara, Christian, and Gabby voted for Carl. The swing vote came down to Mike and he decided to vote with the second group, so Carl ended up joining Elizabeth, John, Dan, and Alec on the jury.
Next episode, it looks like Gabby may finally be ready to turn against Christian and start playing for herself. The same Gabby who can’t go a day without crying is planning on blindsiding the only person who has been keeping her in the game? I wonder how that will work out for her?
We’ll find out next week!
