Episode 10: Smooth Criminal

Debbie thinks she is the best player to ever play. Sarah says that lines in the sand can get washed away by the shore… prophetic! Where Debbie thinks the line has been drawn in concrete. Stinks of foreshadowing that line, let’s see how it plays out.

Eleven is an intriguing number. Stick to the six or get funky with the five.

So Debbie takes out Ozzy, and here comes the cockiness that we have seen before. Andrea being pissed at Zeke unleashes the beast. She has been quite for most of the game so far. But being targeted has lit the fire. YES GIRL. I am loving Sarah’s approach to playing where she wants, no lines in the sand, and voting for her own game. Not sticking to numbers and “Being comfortable”.


Teams will be split in five… umm but Jeffy boy that’ll mean someone misses out you sadistic genius! Michaela draws the short straw, staggered by this, she is a challenge beast. Don’t feel too sorry for her though as underneath her sit out seat is A SECRET ADVANTAGE, it even has that written all over it. Surely she picks it up?


You said it Michaela!

Cirie is competing in a water challenge so we all know her team will lose. What happens throughout though is compelling viewing. She just can’t get it done, Sarah after chastising her swims out to help her finish, then when they lose by a landslide the whole tribe swims out! Never underestimate that people do actually care for each other out there, despite the cutthroat nature. Jeff gives Cirie the opportunity of finishing the balance beam even though it’s all over.

One small step for Cirie, one giant leap for Survivor kind…

She does! Completing the challenge and almost leading me to tears! Almost!


Me on the couch watching Cirie

As they go to board a boat out Michaela leaves without noticing the advantage, Sarah does because she is a cop… because no one else could possibly see an item that has in bold writing on it SECRET ADVANTAGE. I think they should have had written on it OBVIOUS ADVANTAGE or GET THE OUTSIDER THAT NO ONE LIKES BACK IN THE GAME ADVANTAGE . However, Super Cop or Shady Criminal Sarah gets it. Well done! Winner edit screaming at us now.


“I’m a Cop you idiot!” – Sarah in her confessional

OK The reward. HAAHAHAHHAHAH Michaela u silly bitch. Luv her sass, but cleary it played againts her this time. To pissed and bitchy to pick up that Secret Advantage. If she never found out about it, i believe her face during this episode would be priceless. Even putting her shoes on right beside it. AND to not notice Sarah swimming over. WTF

THEN SARAH! How she got around the not getting in the boat and swimming over and grabbing the advantage without anyone questioning or noticing? Luv it.

Much luv for my Queen Cirie, never been a challenge beast. Very heart felt moment. LUV. She is the social player and to go from a target in the beginning to not be on anyones radar. She is getting a great amount of screen time now. I hope its not due to an upcoming, possibly big blindside. Im hoping its going to be more towards someones decision about her and their battle due to what we have seen in their decision.


Sarah unwraps her advantage, steal a vote from another player. Wow they are really going for it this season with idols and advantages.


Lying, Cheating, Vote Stealing

Craig Confession

Secret Advantages. Attention to detail Sarah? Ok, pretty sure if anyone looked at Michaela’s platform properly you would have noticed that massive bloody wrapped up gift.

And here comes the Cockiness. The belief that a game is going to go how you want when your? Half way. You are playing with returnees, who wont go lightly or without a fight. Well maybe Hali. But if you think these people wont turn around and fight the majority? PALLEEAASSEEE. Sierra Dawn Thomas and Culpepper, im looking at you.

You get cocky, you make mistakes. Why loose the social aspect of the game? Debbie you suck at this. At least SDT Does her bitching behind backs and doesnt walk up and piss down peoples legs. Honestly, Cockiness for me is a beeline for – Bye bitch bye.

Well this really is a “Sarah” episode isn’t it. She can go both ways and I have no idea what she is going to do.


I always describe this challenge as the ropey dopey balance word stacker competition. Contestants have to spell immunity with building blocks whilst holding a rope that keeps the blocks steady. The catch is getting the blocks from one side to the other and not tipping the apple cart. Andrea takes an early lead, Tai surprisingly sucks, Ozzy is in Ponderosa having a psychic fit knowing he’d dominate this and out of nowhere TROYZAN WINS IMMUNITY!


Easy Chewie


It’s a simple equation but I have no idea what the hell is going on for some reason, well done editors. Is Sierra going? Is Debbie going? Is Michaela going? Will Sarah flip like she did in Cagayan?


Come to the Dark Side


At tribal it appears as if it is a foregone conclusion that the strong 6 will stick together a vote out Andrea or Michaeala. Troyzan finally makes sense, just get to six then turn on each other. I actually agree with him, flipping now seems silly considering if the six of Sierra, Brad, Tai, Troyzan, Debbie and Sarah get to the end there will be cracks everywhere to expose. Then Debbie starts talking how it is soooooo straight forward the vote and Sarah does a horrendous acting job backing her up. Uh oh. Debbie… like a horror film I am screaming LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU!


The audience watching Debbie blissfully unaware of what is transpiring around her

Votes are read… Debbie is toast. Culpepper is confused. Sarah has gone bang bang and still has her vote stealing advantage up her sleeve.


TV Gold. Thanks for the ride.

Craig Confession

BOOM YES – Bye Debbie. Thank gosh. Luv her, but as a fan, episode went the way i wanted. And the look on Culpepper and Sierra Dawn Thomas faces HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH “omg whhaattt? how could that happen? we were amazing? i dont understand? we had it in the bag! hahhahahahahahahahahahahaha

PS Everyone else just played their roles perfectly, giving nothing away and going the majority.

How to waste an advantage…

Take a look back to this game changing advantage that Debbie had and ultimately wasted due to her ego.
