Previously on, Survivor – Hunahpu, having eaten all of their rice, traded almost everyone the tribe had won in exchange for a new bag of rice. The loss of their tarp was devastating for all when it began to rain, but Julie seemed unable to cope at all. However, Hunahpu again won immunity at the Challenge, and Coyopa, in a split tie between Dale and Keith, saw Dale and his fake immunity idol take the long walk home.

The Coyopa tribe thought they had everything in hand, with Keith next to leave. Despite Missy telling Keith that she was only doing what was necessary to keep daughter Baylor in...

Survivor 2014
Previously on, Survivor – the tribes switched up, leaving the Coyopa tribe with 3 pairs of loved ones and a single, while the new Hunahpu contained 5 couples and just one pair.

Over at the new Hunahpu camp, Jeremy jockeyed for position, while the lack of food remained a serious problem. Hunahpu asked Jeff Probst if he’d consider a trade in exchange for another bag of rice.

After Tribal Council, Dale was angered at the vote ejecting his daughter Kelley. His only hope to stay in the game is to pretend that the icon he found early in game is the Hidden Immunity Idol.

The Hunahpu’s nervous...

Since Day One, Blood vs Water has been a tale of two tribes heading in opposite directions. Coyopa couldn’t win a challenge, and they weren’t getting along. Hunahpu was unbeaten and living like kings, but even they couldn’t live in peace. To get rid of the ‘snakes’ on his tribe, Drew threw an Immunity Challenge, and found himself voted out of the game.

After Tribal Council, the Hunahpu tribe were shocked but glad to have Drew out of the game. Jon, as Drew’s friend, worried that he’d be the next to go. Jeremy felt like the right move had been made, and that he was now in the tribe's best po...

Survivor 2014
Last time on, Survivor: John Rocker and Jeremy made a pact while on Exile Island to protect each other’s loved ones. But Rocker, believing Val had a Hidden Immunity Idol for protection, led a vote against her, and Val was voted out of her tribe.

After Tribal Council, Baylor realized how tenuous her place was in the group, even with her supposed ally, Josh. She can’t trust anyone now. Meanwhile, Josh felt that John Rocker had lost credibility within the tribe.

With bad weather on the way, Drew rallies the Hunahpu tribe to firm up their shelter. The women organize weaving classes to get e...

Tyson Apolstol was crowned Sole Survivor
Previously on … Survivor.  Blood vs. Water began with 12 couples, who were quickly split up and turned into competitors. Last week, Ciera and Hayden tried but failed to get Monica’s support, and it was Hayden’s turn to go to Redemption Island.

This week, the final Redemption Island duel/truel pits Tina and Laura against Hayden, who thinks his chances are good against “a couple of grandmas.” Unfortunately, the challenge involves balancing a ceramic vase on a board, using only one foot, traditionally an easier task for women than men. The winner will rejoin the tribe, but the two losers are ...

Tina was overjoyed to see her daughter, but was aware that only one of them can get back into the game.

Previously on … Survivor.  After Laura M. was voted out, no couples were left, and the game was on. Caleb and Hayden saw a chance to blindside their biggest threat, Tyson, but after Ciera revealed their plan, Tyson was ready to fight fire with fire. Caleb and Hayden threw Ciera under the bus. Tyson played his Hidden Immunity Idol at Tribal Council, but in the end he didn’t need it. Caleb was sent to Redemption Island, in a close vote targeting both Caleb and Ciera.

Previously on … Survivor.  After 26 days, two things were certain; Katie was at the bottom of the group, and Laura and Ciera were the last ‘couple’ in the game. But Ciera chose her alliance over her mother, and Laura was sent to Redemption Island.

After Tribal Council, everyone apologized to Ciera for voting out her mother, but wondered at Ciera’s lack of loyalty. Some thought that Ciera’s cold-bloodedness indicated a lack of trustworthiness.

Vytas and Tina were shocked to see Laura at Redemption Island, and wondered why Tyson was still floating under the radar, while running the game.

Returning from Tribal Council, Katie felt defeated. The other seven players had a strong alliance, and she knew she could be next to go.

Laura M was delighted that they were the last surviving couple, but Ciera is very aware that their partnership makes them a target. She warns her mother to avoid any strategizing with anyone...

But he was angry, and wanted vengeance on those who sent his brother to exile. Tina was furious with Monica and Tyson, and told them that they had lost at least five jury votes for flipping.

After Tribal Council, Vytas assured the girls that he was on their side to the end. Tina let Monica know that she could be the next female to leave.  In a confessional, Vytas admitted that “true blue loyalty” is not the way he plays.

At Redemption Island, Laura B. was furious that the girls mistook her honesty for disloyalty. She felt that they women had made a huge mistake, pre-merge, as the men would now outnumber the women. John and Lau...

Survivor 2013: Blood vs. Water
Previously on Survivor.  The returning players were sweeping the challenges, until a tribal switch occurred. The shakeup left Vytas on Galang in an all-female tribe, and Ciera on Tadhana as the only female. Tina and Laura B.’s misunderstanding of the challenge rules led to a defeat for Galang, but it was Kat who was voted off the tribe at Tribal Council, when she turned on alliance member Monica instead of Vytas.

At Redemption Island, Kat woke up John and Laura M., and whined about being ousted. She had something bad to say about each of her tribe, and worried that boyfriend Hayden would d...

Previously on … Survivor.  Tadhana’s newbie tribe finally won a challenge, which meant Galang had to vote out one of their own returning players. Aras and Tyson manipulated the others into sending Laura M. off to battle against Brad at Redemption Island. After all, she might beat Brad, sending him home, and leaving Monica with only her own tribe to cling to.

After Tribal Council, Laura B. breathed a sigh of relief that she hadn’t been voted out. Aras worried that he might have been seen as the ring leader in ousting Laura M., since leaders are always a target. Sure enough, Tyson warns Gerv...

Survivor 2013: Blood vs. Water
Previously on … Survivor.  The returning players had the game in control, despite the decimation of their loved ones on the competing team. Brad Culpepper thought he had the Tadhana tribe in his pocket, but overplayed his hand, and found himself blindsided at the last Tribal Council. A shocking move by Caleb, Colton’s fiancé, found Brad exiled to Redemption Island, to compete in a ‘thruel’ (duel for three) against John and Candice.

Brad told John and Candice that it’s just business, and that his actions were not personal. His only alliance is to Monica, his wife.

This week, Tadhana’s Hayd...

Unable to stand being ignored, Colton burst into tears and quit the game for the second time, leaving in disgrace. John was blindsided, and sent to RI, where he was reunited with wife Candice.

This week, we begin with the Tadhana tribe, who are gloating over John’s shocking blindside. Brad boasts that he had John under his thumb from the beginning, and interviews that he’s got the game under his complete control. His long term plan is to reunite coupl...

Colton tried to stir up trouble amongst the returning players. But the Tadhana team lost at the Immunity Challenge, and Rachel was voted out, in hopes that Tyson, her boyfriend, would sacrifice himself for her.

This week, Colton continues to whine that no one wants to strategize with him, by which he means, stir up trouble amongst his Galang tribe mates. Since his entire team is made up of returning players, his attempts to goad the others i...

Survivor 2013: Blood vs. Water
Last week on … Survivor. Once more into the breach. And of course, it’s all about Rupert. You remember Rupert. We all do. He’s the good guy that can never catch a break, and sure enough, when he came on to play for the umpteenth time, this time with his wife, his wife was kicked out of the game before anyone could blink. But Rupert threw himself under that bus, to take wife Laura’s punishment, and to be her surrogate on Redemption Island.

On the newbies Galang beach, Brad Culpepper (Culpepper to Jeff Probst) began as he meant to go on, by organizing an alliance of males against females. At...

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' Review: Episode 'Rule In Chaos'

9/26/2013 12:48am EDT
One of the most consistent aspects of Survivor is the slow build. The first episodes of any given season are usually predictable, showing off who is going to leave through the editing. People don’t often betray their alliances or make bold moves until well into the season. So, when we’re teased with a thrilling twist that would allow the underdogs to take over a boring majority alliance, it’s an exciting prospect.

First, let’s start with Redemption Island. I really don’t like this concept because it is a tension killer. The episodes should lead up to the moment when somebody’s Survivor dre...

Survivor: Blood vs. Water
And so it begins. At first glance, I’m not at all happy with this season’s premise, but we’ll have to see how it plays out. This could either be fun, or a complete train wreck. Welcome to the 27th season of … Survivor.

We’ll be treated to returning players, along with newbies, and everyone’s significant others. And we’ve been promised a lot of twists. Twists can be good; I’ll keep an open mind.

But the thing that I’m not happy with, right off the top, is that the players will NOT be playing with their loved ones; rather, they will be competing against them. Returning players will be on th...

Survivor: Blood vs. Water
A lot of people don’t enjoy the recent trend in reality television of bringing back former players to compete again. They’ve had their chance already. Many people want to see a completely new group of characters try their hand at a game we love. However, I’m the opposite. I love when reality shows start to reuse past contestants. It allows us to go into the show already caring about the characters. Plus, since they already know about each other, they have to fight their preconceptions and past mistakes.

The newest season of Survivor (number 27!) is subtitled Blood versus Water. Former play...
