Season 41, Episode 11 β€“

Opening –

“DeShawn’s game is confusing to me – he’s very emotional and all over the place.” – laughed out loud at this Ricard commentary. πŸ˜‚

Deshawn’s mad Shan called him a “snake” on his way out + told Ricard he has her vote for a million dollars…..which doesn’t make sense to me, b/c on the surface it may sound like only an insult to Deshawn’s game, but telling Ricard she’ll vote for him is actually a much worse hit – if anyone’s still awake in this game/strategizing at all, they’d realize Ricard is the bigger threat as he is the only player w/ a guaranteed vote for him in the end. πŸ‘

Survivor ‘Do or Die’ Twist –

The first person out of the challenge will have to participate in a second separate challenge at tribal council – if you don’t complete it, you’re out of the game. You could also choose whether or not to participate at all. I don’t know yet how I feel about this twist, but initially I do like that this forces each player to strategize + think about a lot of different factors in the game (i.e. who else is going to either participate/not, their own personal risk level of going home, how likely they are to be able to at least outlast past the first fail/drop in this particular immunity challenge, how confident they are that they can complete this mystery challenge, etc.).

Xander – Ricard – Danny (final 3 challenge showdown) *Xander/Ricard drop within .5 second of each other*

Tribal Council –

Very disappointed that the overhyped ‘Do or Die’ challenge turns out to just be “pick 1 of 3 boxes”…… REALLY, SURVIVOR? πŸ™„πŸ˜© Literally just leaves it up to chance – only 33% it goes in your favor.

I actually think that voting out Liana was a great move, because having watched many, many seasons of Survivor, she may seem like a non-physical threat that you can easily take out of the game later, but much too often this person you’re not worried about ends up going on a challenge winning streak and/or gets lucky just enough times to end up making it to the end. Plus, you know Xander’s my mf boyyy … so it’s a smart strategy to keep a bigger threat in the game as a shield.

Season 41, Episode 4 β€“

Danny:

  • Loooooooved how he responded to Heather crying + feeling like she let everyone down after struggling + losing the reward challenge. 😍 (‘you can’t win ’em all, that’s not how it works.’ – ‘you gotta get outta that (negativity mindset)’ – ‘nothing to apologize for. you went out there + gave it all you got’)
  • Really disappointed w/ him for agreeing to go along w/ DeShon’s plan to throw the immunity challenge – especially after saying: ‘as a professional athlete, it would be a SIN.’ πŸ˜‘πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
  • TBH, it was pretty humorous that while Blue was trying SO hard to lose, yellow just sucks SO much that they were still in last place for the most part. Luckily Naseer is a mf BADASS + stepped up to the mf PLATE + won the ring toss challenge for blue because…. IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO THROW A CHALLENGE. HAVE THESE PEOPLE **EVER** WATCHED THE SHOW??!!?!?!?! C’mon!

Other:

  • not a big fan of Shan…read on Twitter someone had said she’s getting a v obvious winner’s edit on the show + i’d have to agree….. hope that outcome’s not accurate. she showed limited knowledge of the show saying that this season is the most ‘Survivor’ + that they have to work for everything out there – like having a Fijian local show them how to survive in nature was new… this has 100% been done before…
  • NGL, got my hopes up that the ‘knowledgable visitor’ was gonna be Ozzy… πŸ₯Ί
  • Erika = seems to only speak in clichΓ©s… πŸ™„
  • Absolutely LOST it seeing Boston Rob’s face pop up on my tv screen…. but then much less excited to see he was only introducing a sneak peek of ‘Tough As Nails.’
  • WWCD – if Ricard is smart, he’ll now work w/ Genie to get Shan out (v dangerous esp. after the big move she pulled off in getting J.D.’s advantage + voting him out).

Critical mistake:

J.D., self-proclaimed Superfan… SMDH –– Why, why, why, why, WHY did you not even think for a SECOND that Shan might steal your extra vote advantage + vote you out of the game??????????? Welcome to the Dumbest Moves in Survivor History club, bud! 😬
