Hey! That’s different! Jeff Probst starts the finale and reunion show in the CBS Studio Centre in Los Angeles, instead of getting right to our “Previously on, Survivor.” Jeff tells us that we can relax, kick back, snack and tweet with him throughout the next few hours. Get cozy ... for the next three hours, Jeff will control the vertical and the horizontal!

Survivor is the biggest social experiment on television, but this season it was taken to another level when the 18 players were divided into three groups, based on personality traits they used most in their daily lives; Brains, Brawn an...

May 15th, 2014 3:52pm EDT
Survivor: Cagayan
Previously on, Survivor ... for 30 days, Spencer and Tony have been on opposite paths. For Tony, everything has gone right, even up to finding two idols, including one with ‘special powers,’ without a clue. But for Spencer, it’s been a different story. His life in the game has been a constant struggle. He wasted his only idol, and his allies have been picked off one by one.

But things have started to turn around – he won Immunity and the majority alliance was turning on each other. And he even made a Final Three pact with Kass and Woo, and targeted Tony. But at Tribal Council, it fell apa...

Survivor Cagayan
Previously on, Survivor: In order to get rid of LJ, Tony had to blindside his own alliance, but at the next tribal council, the alliance of 5 regrouped to take out Jeremiah, leaving Tasha and Spencer on the bottom.

Survivor Cagayan
Previously on, Survivor: When Tony blindsided LJ, he also blindsided his own alliance. And no one felt more betrayed than Jefra. Tony needed a backup plan, and he found one, in the form of the Super Idol. Jefra aligned with the minority alliance to take out Tony, but then reneged. In the end it was Jeremiah who was voted out.

Seven are left; who will be voted out tonight?

After Tribal Council, the seven returned to their camp. Kass said that she knew Spencer had an idol by the way he’d been acting, which is why they voted for Jeremiah instead of him. Tony and Kass gloated that their plan ...

Previously on, Survivor: Tony gave his idol to LJ, and LJ reciprocated, knocking two idols out of the game. When Kass flipped, the power shifted to Tony and LJ’s alliance. A new ‘special’ idol was hidden in camp, but the Hidden Immunity Idol Spencer found was just an ordinary one.

At Tribal Council, Morgan was the next voted off the island. Nine are left – who will be voted out tonight?

After Tribal Council, the remaining Survivors returned to camp. When Tony leaned his torch against a tree, he knocked over all the other torches, but walked away without picking them up. He was angry that...

 Jeff Probst extinguishes Morgan McLeod's torch
Previously on, Survivor: Aparri and Solana finally merged, and became Solarrion. And a new Idol with different powers was put in play. But the real struggle for power was between two alliances, and Sarah was playing both sides.

After Tribal, the remaining players tried to regroup. Spencer felt that Kass had played fro...

SURVIVOR: CAGAYAN
Previously on, Survivor: The two cops, Tony and Sarah, made a pact to stay together. But a surprise twist pulled them apart. Sarah found herself the only original Brawn in a tribe of three Brains, and three Beautys.

While Sarah’s new tribe, Aparri, had clear divisions, Tony’s new tribe (Solana) was filled with everything Survivor had to offer; two idols, a blind side and one of their tribe members quitting the game.

But despite everything, Solana won the last immunity challenge, and it was Aparri again heading for Tribal Council, where Alexis was voted out. Eleven are left … who will be ...

Jeff Probst talks with Lindsey Ogle during the fifth episode of
Previously on, Survivor: After a surprise switch, Brawn, Brains and Beauty were no more. They were divided into two tribes; the new Solana tribe and the new Aparri tribe.

On Aparri, the former Beauty tribe began to turn on itself, and the former Brain tribe used that to gain control. At Solana, the former Brawn tribe had a 5 to 2 advantage, with just LJ and Jefra of the former Beauty tribe still at the beach.

In the last immunity challenge, Solana lost, and though LJ was considered, the tribe blindsided former NBA all-star Cliff. Thirteen are left – who will be voted out tonight?

Survivor: Cagayan
Previously on, Survivor: Morgan lost her only ally, Brice, when the Beauty tribe voted him out. The Brawn tribe could do no wrong, winning every challenge. But the Brains tribe failed time after time, finally voting out J’Tia, leaving themselves with only three players.

Although Spencer was delighted to live another day, the vote left him with team mates Kass and Tash, neither of whom had much game. Kass has no particular loyalty to anyone, considering her team the “crap for brains tribe… just a rolling logjam mess with a couple of nerds on top.”

This week on, Survivor: the Brains tribe h...
