'Survivor: Cagayan' – Chaos Kass Blindsides Sarah

4/3/2014 4:50pm EDT
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 ...

'Survivor: Cagayan' – Lindsey Quits And Alexis Splits

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?

After T...

'Survivor: Cagayan' – BOOM! Cliff Gets Blind Sided

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...

'Survivor: Cagayan' - Brains Tribe Snatch Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory

3/13/2014 1:35pm EDT
Brains Tribe
Previously on, Survivor: On the Brawn Beach, paranoid Tony developed several alliances within his tribe, although he had no intention of actually working with others. The Brains tribe was slowly imploding, as Tasha formed a girls’ alliance with the useless J’Tia and wishy-washy Kass. Team Beauty’s Jeremiah found himself stuck between two alliances when they lost their first challenge and sent Brice home.

After Tribal Council, Jeremiah told Morgan that Brice’s social game was so good that it scared him, which was why he voted against him. As the tribe snuggled in for the night, Morgan apolo...

'Survivor: Cagayan' Recap: 'He Definitely Kind Of Betrayed My Trust'

3/6/2014 1:57pm EST
Previously on Survivor: the 18 new castaways were divided into three tribes: brawn, brains and beauty. On the Beauty tribe, Morgan and Brice recruited Jeremiah for their alliance. On Brawn’s beach, Tony’s paranoia is building, despite having a fellow cop on his tribe. The Brain tribe has lost the first two challenges in a row, leaving the four remaining members depressed. And hungry, thanks to J’Tia’s temper tantrum, when she threw almost all of their rice into the fire.

The Brains team is certainly misnamed, as each of the members admit that they should have sent J’Tia home, but chose Gar...

'Survivor Cagayan' - The Survivor Gods Are Speaking
39 days, 18 people – ONE SURVIVOR. And so it begins.

The players arrive, once again in the Philippines, already sorted into three groups - Brains, Beauty and Brawn. The Brains tribe is Luzon (David, Garrett, J’Tia, Kassandra, Latasha, and Spencer,) and they arrive by helicopter. The Beauty tribe – Solana -(Jefra, Alexis, Bryce, Jeremiah, LJ and Morgan) sail in by boat, and the Brawn tribe Aparri, consisting of Cliff, Sarah, Tony, Lindsey, Trish, and Woo ride in on a truck, before everyone meets up in a field.

Jeff Probst welcomes the teams, and explaines how the three divisions have been ...

'Survivor 2013: Blood Vs. Water' – And The Winner Is… Tyson!

12/16/2013 4:11pm EST
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 ...

Hayden Moss
Previously on … Survivor.  Tyson was cruising through the game, with a strong alliance, and the second immunity idol. At Tribal Council, Ciera flipped on her alliance, and for the second time in Survivor history, rocks were drawn to break a tie. Katie was sent to Redemption Island. Tina was overjoyed to see her daughter, but was aware that only one of them can get back into the game.

At Kasama, everyone was still reeling from the Tribal Council proceedings. Tyson took an aggressive/defensive stance against Hayden, saying that you should never let a “crazy person” know that they’re on the b...

Jeff Probst extinguishes Katie Collins's flame at Tribal Council
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. Only six players now remain in the game.

Back at Kasama, Hayden couldn’t help but congratulate Tyson on his game play. He had ...

Survivor 2013: Blood vs. Water – Mom Power! Monica Wins 3rd Immunity!

Survivor: Blood vs. Water
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.
