HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of our friends who follow this Survivor Blog! We are very thankful for each and everyone of you!!
One of my favorite things about this season of Survivor is Penner! He is by far one of the most entertaining, witty, funny guys to play the game. He started talking about Abi and how she is going home this week if she does not play the idol. He then made a comment about getting hit by a car when crossing the street…referring to the idea that ANYTHING could happen to anyone at anytime.
So with that I pictured Jeff Probst driving a golf cart around the island and running into people…made me laugh a little bit on this Thanksgiving Thursday!
***pausing to let that image sink in some!**
So let’s get to yesterdays episode. Reward challenge. Break up the 8 into 2 teams of 4. Younger vs Older is how it shook out and they played a game called flip the giant coin. 3 of them in 3 circles. Looked like a fun game and some of the castaways were confused and ended up flipping a coin at the wrong time or forgetting to flip their opponents coin. Basically…the younger team of Malcom, Abi, Pete and Carter prevailed. They won a spa day on a different island. Not sure which guy it was but he wiggled his fingers when he said he needed a pedicure. LOL…good thing he is a boy!
Spa time was nice…nice bath, clean hair, FOOD, all the things one could want.
When it was over, Abi was glowing and not just because she was clean…she wanted to share her experience with everyone…which made the old school people who did not get a spa day a little jealous.
On to the immunity challenge, which is a fun 3 part elimination race where the castaways needed to push a buoy on a rope. First round is through a complex maze and first 5 go to round 2. Penner, Carter, Malcom, Denise and Skupin. Now lets add some more difficulty to the challenge. Lets make sure we keep the people off of the ground. On the balance beam and pushing the buoy around it. Good stuff. Final 3 for the round is Carter, Skupin and Denise. (is it just me or is Denise rocking this challenge!)
Final leg is where we add water to the mix and in a close finish Carter gets by the last knot before Skupin and won individual immunity.
So with 2 hidden immunity idols in the mix and Abi and Pete looking like they are gonners there is one interesting idea.
Split vote, flush out Abi’s immunity idol, and maybe flip Skupin and get Malcom out and have him walk out with his idol in his pocket. But in the end, Skupin stayed loyal and Abi played her idol so Pete was eliminated.
Bye bye Pete! It was fun but your time is up….buh bye!
There was some awkwardness with Abi and it ended up almost coming off as mean toward Abi. I am still not sure what to make of it. Just left me with a weird feeling afterwards.
So will the final 4 alliance of Malcom, Skupin, Lisa and Denise stick? Will the final 6 keep Abi around for a little while longer?
