'Survivor 2013: Blood Vs. Water': Monica's Swing Vote Cuts Hayden Loose
Gervase is starting to get a little worried about Monica, who’s been a loose cannon throughout the game. But he’s well aware that he and Tyson need her on their side to make it to the Final Three.
Monica interviews that she loves both Gervase and Tyson, but she’s playing for herself, not them.
Ciera and Hayden make a plan to feed Monica’s paranoia. They’ll tell her that the others are mocking her, and that Tyson boasts that he’s leading her along like a puppy on a leash. Hopefully she’ll flip on her alliance and vote with them instead.
Come on in for the Immunity Challenge! Probst outlines this week’s task. They’ll dive into the water and push a buoy along a rope, through obstacles. Once they reach the shore, they’ll untie bags full of letter tiles, and use the tiles to solve a classic Survivor phrase. There will also be a Reward - a chance to order from a Survivor menu, and have food prepared especially for them, delivered to camp. Choices of entree include steak, lobster, burgers and pizza. Survivors ready?
Hayden and Tyson are quick to take the lead, with Monica right behind. Gervase, notoriously unhappy in the water, lags behind, but Ciera is impossibly outclassed. When Tyson begins working on his puzzle, Ciera is dead last.
Everyone is working frantically on their puzzles when Ciera finally arrives. The answer is an eight word phrase. Tyson, Gervase and Monica try various word combinations, but Ciera moves quickly, and has the answer before anyone else. “You Are Going To Have To Dig Deep.” Ciera wins Immunity!
She’s ecstatic, high fiving the others. Allowed to choose one person to join her for lunch, she chooses Hayden. She and Hayden will enjoy a wonderful meal, which they cannot share with the others.
Ciera gloatingly interviews that she’s proud of her win. She boasts “in your face!” to anyone who thought she made a stupid decision to go against Tyson. And if her mom makes it back into the game, there will be two Morett’s to worry about, not just one.
With so many food choices, Hayden opts for pizza, and Ciera orders a hamburger. During their feast, they discuss strategy. Hayden says that it’s time to shake Monica up. Ciera is sent to tell her that Tyson is calling her his puppy dog, who does what she’s told to do. Monica is teary, feeling like she’s been gut punched. She’s angry, and agrees when Ciera tells to vote against Gervase.
