Redemption Island Episode 12

Ometepe begins to eat its own, and RI brings the reward dilemma that we were craving. Unfortunately, both events fail to deliver the disruption in the status quo that we were hoping for. The family visit seemed to further cement the disparity between the Robfather's approach to the game and the remaining Ometepes. How is that he gets a new shirt from a loved one? Do you think he's getting special treatment? Did you worry for his safety in the immunity challenge?

What did you make of Mike's choice after winning the duel? Did it help or hurt his chances if he makes it back from RI? Are you buying Phillip's explanation of his grand strategy? Do you think anyone on the jury will? Did you ever think he would make it this far? Who are you hoping will return from RI? Of the remaining Ometepes, who stands the best chance of beating Rob at the final tribal council?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Murlonio:Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Andrea vs. Ralph vs. Matt vs. Mike

We both think that Phillip will get the boot next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 11

The total domination of Zapatera is almost complete. With all of the remaining members at Redemption Island, there is only one chance for a Zapatera to return to the game now. Given the divine intervention that Matt receives in the duels, that seems very unlikely. Be honest. Some of you are starting to think that Phillip has tapped into a higher power too, right? How else can you explain the manifestation of feathers and most importantly the vision that enabled him to find his shorts?

Now it gets interesting. Ometepe has to finally turn on each other. Do you think they will take the easy route and vote out Andrea? Will she accept that fate or go down fighting? If Matt makes it back from Redemption Island and into the final 3 against Rob, will he be able to beat him? What is your assessment of this group? Do you think we will have a jury that respects gameplay or will we see another classic bitter vote against the person that beat them? What is your guess for the vote out order of the remaining Ometepes?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Steve vs. Ralph vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Andrea will Rob's first target. Stacy thinks the ladies will demand that Phillip get the boot next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 10

We've seen race come up as in issue in previous seasons, most recently in Samoa, but this episode Phillip took things to a whole different level. As much as we enjoy all his goofy antics, it was really uncomfortable to watch him come unglued and attack Steve. Did you buy his explanation? Do you think he was justified in his outburst?

The Robfather appears to have an iron grip on the fate of the remaining Zapatera members. Is it safe enough for him to start voting out some of the Ometepe tribe now? Do you think Zapatera made the right call with the rice? Phillip appears to be really unstable. Can you think of a scenario where he could win the $1M? Do you think Matt or Mike really has a shot at winning if they return from Redemption Island?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Julie vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will continue the Zapatera death march and target Steve next. Stacy thinks they will finally get rid of Phillip now that the numbers advantage is so strong. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 9

Attention all Survivor students. The Robfather is running an advanced placement Survivor strategy clinic during season 22. There will be special sessions on managing sleeping quarters, scheduling feeding times, encouraging a sense of entitlement and outward displays of arrogance as well as tips on how to organize a buddy system to encourage your alliance to spy on each other.

Things look grim for the 2 1/2 remaining Zapatera members. Do you think there's any chance for Julie, Ralph and what's left of Steve to make it to the end? Grant showed a small amount of rebellion this week with the fish. Do you ever see him attempting to wrest control away from Rob? Will the original Ometepe members be able to keep it together until all the Zapateras are gone? Would you be happy with Rob's final 3? Who will you be cheering for at the Redemption Island duel?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Julie, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt vs. David vs.Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will want to make Julie pay for those zingers she landed in Tribal Council. Stacy thinks they will get rid of Ralph. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 8

 

Targeting flakey tribe members has a long history on Survivor. There is a classic example of it in episode 11 of Survivor Amazon. One of the great dilemmas of the game is that you can essentially trust no one but you are constantly required to choose between small temporary alliances bound by trust. The one surefire way to fail is to demonstrate that you can't be counted on for either choice. When you are viewed as incapable of committing, you make yourself the number one target. Matt clearly has more to learn about the game. Do you think he will figure out what the true lesson of Survivor is during his 2nd visit to RI?

Did Rob do Matt a favor and give him an easier path to final 5? Do you think Mike was sincere when he and Matt were reading the bible together? How do you think Grant will respond to getting five votes at Tribal Council? Will Andrea be able to recover from once again being associated too closely with Matt? With Matt out of the picture, what should be Mike's next move?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, David, Julie, Grant, Mike, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt

With Matt safely out of the way for now, we think Ometepe will shift their focus to the remaining Zapatera members and target Mike next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 7

 

It took them 7 episodes, but the last remnants of Russell's alliance has finally been eliminated from the game. Stephanie's mentor must have been proud to see her exact another round of revenge in her parting comments. Who do you think has demonstrated the greater apptitude for the game: the group on Ometepe that blindly follows Rob or the Zapatera 6 who threw a challenge in an effort to clean up their tribe?

If Matt returns, do you think Rob can welcome him back without risking a betrayal? Who do you think will be the first to flip on their tribe: Phillip, Andrea, David or Ralph? Does Rob have a strong enough alliance to protect him after the merge? Can you see any way for the outnumbered, remaining members of Zapatera to have a shot at winning this season? The merge is finally upon us. If you were playing, who would you want on your jury if you made it to the final tribal council?

Here are the tribes after episode 7.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Sarita vs. Matt

Jo Ann thinks Mike will be voted out. Stacy thinks Rob will have the majority alliance and will target David as his biggest threat. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 6

 

Stephanie's gameplay may be lacking, but she might just have a future as a weather girl. As she predicted, a storm has settled over Zapatera. The cracks in the Zapatera 6 appeared to widen this week. We were treated to a new view of Sarita as the weakest member of the tribe. Several of her tribemates mentioned that she was annoying and referred to her as a princess, an "uptown girl" and someone who was not really suited to the game. The gap between her and David widened even further as he actively lobbied to vote her out. Who will they turn on next now that they are down to six?

What did David gain from arguing to keep Stephanie? How do you think it affected his standing with his alliance? Do you think Andrea has given up on reuniting with Matt? Will sharing the HII clue with Phillip be Rob's undoing? Will evil Stephanie finally upset good Matt at Redemption Island?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph, Sarita and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Stephanie vs. Matt

Jo Ann's sticking with her prediction that Phillip will be voted out. Stacy thinks David is on the chopping block. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 5

 

The surprises just keep coming. Who would have guessed in the beginning of the season that the "Natalie White clone", who looked like she was hand picked to be in an alliance with Russell, had no social game? Stephanie's storm showed up, but she wasn't immune to it's effects. The bitterness that she and Krista cultivated seems to have ensured that they will not be long for the game. All told, Zapatera took quite the beating this week as almost everyone was shown to be flawed in some manner: Mike was a klutz and doused the fire, Julie dwells on karmic retribution, Sarita made a bad decision at the challenge by picking Stephanie instead of David, Stephanie failed to solve the puzzle, Ralph didn't know his left from his right, David is a hot head, Steve is unhealthy and unathletic. Do you think we might be witnessing the beginning of the end of the Zapatera tribe?

Can you see any way for Stephanie to survive? How long will Rob be able to hide the HII from his alliance? Do you think there is any chance that Matt and Andrea will reunite to get revenge on Ometepe? Does Krista stand a chance to upset Matt at Redemption Island?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Krista vs. Matt

We are speculating that the Ometepe win was a fluke, and predict that they will finally give Phillip the boot after they lose next week. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 4

 

That was the 1-2 punch, and he is finally down for the count. But just like a poisonous snake that's lethal even after you kill it, Russell found a way to strike one more time before he made his final exit. So much for Ralph keeping secrets. Wouldn't you have loved to see the Ometepe reaction when they found out that Zapatera threw the challenge?

How much damage do you think Ralph's slip up will cause them down the road? Do you think Rob will end up sharing the HII with his alliance? Why do you think we never see anyone else from Ometepe looking for it? We didn't see much from Andrea this week. What do you think is going on with her? Who do you think will win the next RI showdown?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Krista, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Kristina vs. Matt

We both think the decimation of Ometepe will continue. Jo Ann thinks Rob will send Andrea packing next. Stacy thinks it will be Phillip. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 3

 

The surprises just keep coming. Until this episode, Russell had never been voted out. This season he is so disliked by his own tribe that they risked their future in the game to send him packing, if only momentarily. How about that Ralph? How long has it been since we've seen someone keep a secret when it comes to the HII?

Do you think Ometepe's win will help them turn it around and shift the game in their favor? Do you think the Zapatera six knew that Russell would target Julie, or did she come up with the plan to scam him all by herself? Can you see a way for Stephanie to redeem herself? Who do you think will win the next RI showdown?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Kristina, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Krista, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Russell vs. Matt

Jo Ann thinks Kristina we'll go next. Stacy thinks it will be Andrea. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
