Season 41, Episode 9 –

Immunity Challenge –

LOVE this endurance challenge because it’s more of a mental game than anything. I would absolutely LOVE to try + see how long I could endure being perched on a very narrow wooden bar w/ my arms up behind my head. Jeff described it as “pain management.”

Xander looks almost comfortable up there. just chillin.’ XANDER FTW!!!! SO impressed w/ him AGAIN. week after week, this kid finds new ways to blow us out of the mf water. he is making the entire season 41. awwww WE LOVE TO SEE IT (another Superfan winning on the show) “i’ve dreamed of this challenge, since this aired, like so many nights – this is made for me.”

He’s just so adorable lolol sue me – “I’m the prom king.” Rocking the immunity necklace like a mf champ. 💪🏻 and telling Jeff that he “completely undersold” the stew (food reward) hahaha – the only likable personality on this show FR.

Strategizing –

Would be freaking siiiick if Xander was able to take out Lianna. ESP after she’s been obsessed w/ + hating on him this ENTIRE game, even during the immunity challenge w/ blatant disrespect “i hate his face.”

then she has the AUDACITY to ask Xander to give her his idol to hold onto during Tribal. LOL girlwhaaaaat?! 😂

Erika/Heather then also have the audacity to ask Naseer if he’d play his idol for Heather….. are you f*%^% kidding me?!!?! what in the world are these players thinking…

I’m liking DeShawn much more now that he’s willing to go against his alliance + make a big move to take out Lianna….but I’m not sure if I fully buy it… betting things change by the time to vote.

Convinced Ricard is the only one w/ a working brain trying to take out Naseer w/ an idol > everyone else trying to take out Heather who has no advantage + no alliance other than Erika/one person. Unfortunately Shan is so preoccupied w/ what “vibes” she’s getting from people + making her voting decisions (Heather) based solely on that.

Tribal Council –

Naseer – pretty lame use of an extra vote advantage imo, but oh well. at least they made a move + took someone out who had an idol vs. a complete non-threat.

Evvie – I think Xander was smart to not use his idol for Evvie because she hasn’t really helped him that much in the game imo. and i think he kinda distrusted her from when it came out that she had told DeShawn about his idol way back earlier in the game. i think this was a good move for him to save his idol for himself bc he’s going to need it. using it on Evvie wouldn’t guarantee him anything. this way it at least buys him one more day in the game whenever he needs it.

Also, Evvie said at the final confessional “honestly not sure who flipped on me”… how ?! how does she not know about the shan/danny/deshawn/liana alliance…. interesting. 🤔

Season 41, Episode 8 –

ok… THIS is definitely the easiest rebus puzzle so far. C’MON. you could just guess it. 😒

Reward challenge –

Xander is so smart LFGGGGG. offered to switch spots with Erika who drew the grey rock to sit out. Xander keeps impressing me in this game. he’s THINKIN’, mfs. that boi is on fireeeee. (and not surprised with Erika accepting that offer. lol.) got SO excited watching Xander look all around/under the ‘sit out bench.’ i thought NO WAY he doesn’t get it. ugh.

not loving the whole Jeff talking to us/in the camera though…. i like not knowing if there’s something in the bench or if they just zoomed in on it. now it’s like we’re 5 years old in school + Jeff’s the teacher showing it to us straight up. booooo.

research + prep just might get you the win – survivor –– Eevie saying i knew that puzzle.

Xander double strategy on taking the bench – he said i like to be w/ the losers bc they’re raw/emotional + looking for someone to work w/ + he needs someone to work w/

Shan vs. Ricard b/c he won reward + got food/grilled cheese + Shan hungry + he had 1 bite of papaya. reminds me of the Clarence thing in Africa when he had 2 cherries while everyone else had 1 + he also opened a can of beans i think it was (?) supposedly for a sick tribe member but she + everyone else turned on him for that + never let it go.

Immunity challenge –

LOVE endurance challenges. stand on toes on wooden beam + balance a block vertically on the top of their head between their head and a top wooden beam. (record 1 hour 22 mins. – this time ended in like 3 mf minutes….)

twist – an individual can opt out of challenge for single portion of rice, multiple people can sit out for enough rice for everyone to eat for 3 days

negotiated # of ppl w/ jeff – ended at 5, xander says how bout 4? jeff says yes. Xander, Shan, Ricard, Naseer sit out. – Ricard it’s a GREAT move for him to repair his #1 alliance w/ Shan. 👏🏻

Eevie – unbelievable, shocked she won tbh, no offense lol. was thinking she should’ve looked over at the bench when she won the challenge, b/c she would’ve seen everyone’s faces + she’d know without a doubt she’s still very much on the bottom…. 😬

Xander made up my new favorite word – “betraydar”. LOL he know something’s up when they changed the lie from Naseer to Heather. good for him.

but these ppl really need to work together and take out Shan. she’s bossy, a threat, and obnoxious imo.

Tribal council –

Heather freaks out + tries to change vote to Naseer, then they all say let’s take Heather out + honestly i said hell yeah. she caused such a major issue here – mass confusion. you deserve to GOOOOO. i would’ve been PISSED if they voted Naseer, bc he could’ve won that immunity challenge + he only took a seat on the bench to get rice for Y’ALL ungrateful mf brats… anyway…

Danny gets pissed at Shan for not listening to his opinion. wish he would’ve just said fuck it let’s all vote Shan. didn’t lead to anything, but they showed 2 of these tense moments between them so guessing it’s going to come up again next episode.

& Ricard kept bugging Xander to play his idol – sneaky sneaky.. thank GOD he didn’t buy that + waste it. –– big question in my mind though is does he *GET* that they were trying SO hard to flush his idol???? he thanks them after the votes were read like they ‘saved’ him or something.. hm.

tiffany = voted out first member of jury. lame. what a messy tribal for a result equalling a whole lot of NOTHIN. predictable (again)…
