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 9 β€“

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. πŸ’ͺ🏻 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?! πŸ˜‚

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. πŸ€”

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! 😬

Birthday Buffs!

birthdays can be tough in quarantine, but NOT when you have amazing friends like this! s/o to my girl Taylor for the BEST surprise!! πŸ€―πŸ˜‡ I could not (and still can’t tbh!) believe that someone knows me like that + would do something so sweet!πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ» this means so much more to me than i can even say ❀️❀️❀️

Zodiac Signs

So I’m not like crazy into astrology by any means, but I’m not not into astrology at all + my curiosity got the best of me wondering if there were any trends in both/either the types of people who play Survivor (which I guess technically would really be more ‘types of people cast on Survivor’) and/or types of people who win Survivor.

🌎 Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn):

  • grounded, loyal, sensual, patient, practical, good at accumulating wealth + tend to appreciate the finer things in life
  • stubborn, inflexible, materialistic, sometimes lazy

πŸ”₯ Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius):

  • passionate, bold, charismatic, creative, charming, confident + can obtain fame/fortune through their well-channeled signature intensity
  • aggressive, selfish, vain, impulsive, quick-tempered + need to be the center of attention

πŸ’¨ Air Signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius):

  • sharp as a tack, highly rational, logical, terrific social skills + great communicators
  • fickle, aloof + cold/unemotional

🌊 Water Signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio):

  • sensitive, highly intuitive, deep, emotional, highly imaginative, very loyal + compassionate
  • easily-hurt/take things too personally, moody + highly suspicious

Commentary/random thoughts I had while looking all this up:

Richard Hatch being an Aries was probably the least surprising to me out of everyone included here.

Parvarti being a Virgo shocked me – would’ve guessed Libra 1000000% – but she is right before the cutoff technically, so IDK how all that works, but my theory is that that because she’s right on the Virgo/Libra cusp, she outwardly displays many more Libra qualities. (You don’t need to be any kind of expert to know Libras are the biggest flirts in the zodiac πŸ‘€πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚)

Tyson = Gemini – didn’t try to guess his before looking it up + I think this is fitting – very witty, extreme sarcasm, hard to read…

Jerry as a Virgo surprised me too – exactly the same as w/ Parv, would’ve also thought Libra 10000% because c’mon. lol.

Sarah Lacina – Libra (I would’ve guessed Aries… aggressive, v “take no sh*t” vibes)

Jeremy – Taurus (had a feeling he was for some reason) + Michelle – Taurus (felt like I saw this one coming a mile away too – maybe because this is my sign πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ) I would’ve bet $$$ on Yau Man being a Taurus too, but now that I think about it, he did give away a car… nvm πŸ˜…

Aras – I was like OK finally a Libra in the mix + also explains him being v cute. k, next.

Terry – Libra – this one I knew!!!! IDK, had a feeling. That charm. The smile. Idk. I knew. πŸ˜‰

End Results/What I Found: basically 🌎 Earth signs + specifically Capricorns DOMINATE.
