Reality sometimes gets in the way of Reality TV. I’ve been sick off and on for the last few weeks. In between being sick, my husband and I went on a great cruise to the Caribbean. Of course, when we arrived home, I could only see the holiday’s looming around the corner. Did I really invite all the women from my development to a Christmas Tea at my home on Sunday? Yikes! LOL
So last night, I finally caught up on Survivor. I never did get to see the week before though. As it gets closer and closer to the end, it becomes necessary for players to try to split off and form new alliances to make it to the end. This was the case for Hayden last week. He knows how strong Tyson and Gervase are in this game. If Tyson isn’t blindsided, he has a good chance of winning. So, he plays his Ace and tries to change things up. It’s him and Katie. He talks to Gervase who tells him if he can get Ciera to flip that he will flip also. Ciera is really in a tough spot. She’s last in each alliance no matter what. She has a hard decision to make.
Meanwhile, Miss Monica Culpepper is sliding into the winner’s circle. No one seems to realize how dangerous this woman is. She won THREE Immunity Challenges in a row. This week, she comes very close to winning again. Gervase pulls off this win and receives an ice cream treat. He has to pick two Survivors to enjoy the treat with him. He chooses Monica, stating that he is getting even for when she gave away her prize and then he chooses Tyson. The writing is on the wall. Gervase, Monica and Tyson are TIGHT. Hayden tries to use this to his advantage with Ciera.
Since last week, Tyson used the HII, there is another one out there somewhere. Ciera’s mom Laura won at Redemption Island, so Ciera gets the clue. Like an idiot, she shares it with her supposed alliance…Monica, Gervase and Tyson. Tyson finds his second HII. I sure hate when stuff like that happens.
So we arrive at tribal with Gervase safe and Tyson holding a HII. Hayden knows he is in big trouble so he plays hard to convince Ciera that she is bottom woman on the totem pole so switch sides. I didn’t think she was going to, but the vote comes out Hayden 3 votes and Monica 3 votes. They re-vote. Once again a tie. The rules state that at this point, they can either come up with a majority vote or the remaining players have to draw rocks. They can’t agree on a vote, so rocks it is. What this means is that Hayden, Monica and Gervase are safe. Katie, Ciera and Tyson have to draw rocks. The one who gets the white rock is on their way to Redemption Island. I so wanted it to be either Gervase or Tyson, but as luck will have it, Katie draws the white rock. Oh, crap.
So what we have now going into this week is a solid alliance of Gervase, Tyson and Monica. Hayden and Ciera are stuck out there by themselves. Tyson has the biggest advantage since he holds a HII. It comes down to winning those challenges Survivors.
I’ll be back tomorrow with an up-to-date post on this week’s Survivor episode. Stay tuned…Bloggergal
