Episode 11: When Miracles Do Happen


Once again it is proven that the exact things that you DON'T want or DO want to happen could happen, depending on whose perspective. It just did for Abi and the rest of the castaways in this truly "Upside Down" episode of Survivor Philippines.

Back at camp, Abi is somewhat looking for a shoulder to cry on after the "brutal" tribal council she has been through but it appears that Skupin is not the right person for her to lean on at this time.

Overhearing her sentiments, Denise could only mutter that Abi kept on with her negative self. Denise believes that it would take nothing short of a miracle if Abi wins the next immunity challenge but if she does, their next target most probably is Jonathan Penner.

Day 28

Malcolm and Abi are tasked to get the tree mail and find some envelopes with their names on them. They thought that it's another letter from the loved ones so Abi started tearing up. Malcolm tells Abi, "I wanted to give you a hug" after what happened at the tribal council. Malcolm embraces the tearful Abi.

Abi says that it was the worst day of her life to which Malcolm replies, "I'm sorry darlin'."

Malcolm feels that Abi was run over buy a bus that back up again to run her over again.

"Abi is so self-unaware. It's hard not to feel a little sympathy when she's breaking down. My heart goes out to her a little bit," Malcolm says.

The two then return to the camp. Jonathan already knows that the envelopes are for - they contain the money for the classic challenge - the Survivor Auction.

Knowing what the auction could entail, Abi is determined to wait for the right opportunity and make the most out of it.

"I'm the most disliked person here. I'm gonna sit tight and wait for the right opportunity. They are not gonna stop me now. I'm a fighter, I'm a Survivor," Abi says.

Episode 10: Tables Turned

The tables have clearly turned in this episode for the "baddies" of the formerly 'winning' Tandang tribe after the tribal council where Artis was eliminated and it's all because of Michael Skupin's decision to jump the ship. As Jeff Probst puts it, Abi and Pete ruled the game with iron fist but now, will they survive? 

After the last tribal council, the only remaining allies left from the original Tandang tribe, Abi and Pete (and the unpredictable Lisa) are reeling with the aftermath of Artis' elimination. Pete believes that Artis didn't see it coming. The two try to cook up with a new game plan to stay alive. Abi confesses that she was surprised with the result because she thought that Tandang would come out strong until the end.

Skupin, rightfully, takes the credit for his "first real big move" which was voting Artis out. But he also believes that it would take several big moves to win the game. And from then on, Skupin swears to play the game like the way he lives his life - on his own terms.
Day 26
The Breakup

It's another one-on-one talk with Lisa and Abi. The former child star, Lisa tells Abi that she has never wavered in their alliance before and she still hasn't. But Lisa is set to break-up with Abi telling her that she needs to be with people that would trust her. Lisa even tells Abi that the other group went out of their way to be kind to her and they encouraged her. To which Abi replies, "it's because they are smart and they need you to get the numbers." But Abi knows that Lisa has already made up her mind, saying "Clearly you have already aligned yourself with them, good luck."

Lisa confesses that she has never been good a break-ups and relates that she has continued with relationships way too long because she didn't want to hurt anybody. (On a side note, Lisa got divorced before joining Survivor. Close to home, right?)

Episode 9: The Aftermath

After a "historic" tribal council, it is time for the castaways to face the aftermath of what just transpired on their 22nd night on the islands of Caramoan.

But it appears that Michael Skupin most appreciated the events that unfolded during the tribal council. "It was the most amazing experience because Lisa made the big move to save me," Skupin said.  He is also pleased that one of the most adamant of getting rid of the veteran players (Jeff Kent) got voted off first saying, "having one of them go is a win-win for me either way."

Abi immediately accused Skupin of voting for her, to which the latter denied. But Jonathan Penner is more than willing to admit it, telling Abi, "I voted for you. I don't like being played like that."

Jonathan although safe for another three days admits that it was it the most incredible tribal council he became a part of saying, "I don't even know that the hell happened."

Later, Jonathan through Carter finds out that his vote for Abi instead of Pete, practically cost Jeff Kent the game. "The least I could do is tie it up, I'm a dead man walking anyway," Jonathan said.

However it was Lisa who is reeling from her move that could have been devastating. Malcolm approaches her and asks how she is feeling, to which Lisa replies, "It was terrible."

But Malcolm immediately tries to give her consolation, saying, "You were playing the game. I was playing the game."

Malcolm's reaction gives Lisa a sigh of relief. "I can't believe you are so full of grace and mercy. I am just so grateful. You are amazing," she said.

Lisa admits that she was trying to play a big move and play the game but she is all shaken up inside. "It's just not me. I lied, I have betrayed, I have broken promises," she said. "I love this game but it's too big for me. I think it' bigger than me."

Day 23

Jonathan knows that he is still on the chopping block, especially if he would fail to win immunity. But he has seen cracks on the alliance of original members of Tandang and he plans to capitalize on it to stay longer in the game.

"There are five original Tandang still life and if they vote together, I am done. I'll probably go home. But there's division, cracks. You have two parents who try to play the game straight up, almost Christian game - Lisa and Skupin. And there are three tight players who would play the bully game. My hope is to appeal to Lisa and Skupin's hearts," Jonathan said.

Heart-to-Heart

Jonathan and Lisa get to have a one-on-one talk. Penner somehow senses that Lisa is burdened by her actions during the tribal council. Jonathan expresses to Lisa her admiration for her.

"You explained yourself beautifully last night, maybe unprecedented in the history of Survivor. I certainly admire you, like you, maybe even love you (something to that effect)," Jonathan said.

Then Jonathan turns into a shrink and the two had some sort of a counselling session which Lisa. Jonathan described Lisa as someone who had to grow as a people-pleaser and a provider for the family. Lisa cries and tells Jonathan how much she appreciates their conversation.

Lisa admits that Penner struck a chord, an internal conflict. She relays that she has spent her entire life doing whatever it takes to do the right thing and be liked. 

"My whole life has been based on public perception. I've  lived my life on the stage since i was 7 years old... Can I survive, not being little miss perfect?" Lisa said.

Episode 8: Not so Hidden Immunities

The episode turned to be the best so far this season and the tribal council was as awesome and as mind-boggling and unprecedented. To get into the details, here's this week's recap.

Last week, Jonathan was clearly the majority's target, no thanks to Jeff Kent whose ultimate goal was to get rid of him along with Skupin, the two remaining returning players. Kent was successful at flushing out Jonathan's hidden immunity idol that saved the latter from being eliminated but not RC who becomes the first member of the jury. Jonathan is now out on his own and will do everything to win the immunity challenge.

Night 19

Ready to Die

At the merged tribe, Dangrayne (whatever that is), Jonathan confronted Kent, Carter and Denise after the tribal council. Kent tried to elude Jonathan's questioning telling them that "everybody was just wishy-washy.. " but they were aiming for him to use his idol and then get Pete.

Jonathan admitted that he felt hurt being betrayed and being talked about behind their backs. Denise told Jonathan upfront that she voted for him, following her own strategy and her own path. Jeff on the other hand believed that all they have to do is not let Jonathan win an individual immunity idol. However, he also knew that he have used the members of Tandang to go against their own the last time and he would try to keep that influence. Later, Skupin gave Jonathan some assurance by telling him to "wait for a crack to be exposed." Jonathan swore that he would do everything not to go home saying "I have no alliances, no allegiances. I don't care, everybody is equal they are all ready to die."

Day 20

Naive Lisa?

The next day, Lisa talked about how she wanted the succession of who's going to be voted off - Penner and then Skupin. She wanted Jeff, Carter, Malcolm and herself to join together in voting off Pete, Artis and Abi - the resident bullies of the island.

Lisa and Jeff then talked about what their plan is for the vote. Jeff thinks that Lisa is "so naive and soft and so nice" and he wants to use her to move forward with his own plans of breaking up the original Tandang trio baddies.

Episode 7: Not a Happy Family

Denise of the Kalabaw tribe is determined to get rid of what appears to be a curse because it's her sixth tribal council in a row. Meanwhile, at the winningest Tandang tribe, Skupin recalls that it was just about the same number of days in the island when he had been burned back in Australia, ten years ago. He says that he got evacuated right before the merge.

One Tribe

A boat arrives at the Tandang (yellow) camp, sending a message that they have already reached the merge and they got 10 minutes to gather and pack everything they have to bring in their new camp. Malcolm immediately secured his immunity idol that he buried when he became part of Tandang. He puts it inside his  bag with some of his clothes. The members of Kalabaw (red) tribe receive the same message and the boat will bring them to their new camp as well. Jonathan is confident that the merge would extend his life in the island and all they have to do is take one or two people from Tandang to go on their side. Meanwhile, Denise is eager to get reunited with her original alliance, Malcolm. 

At their new camp, the 11 castaways meet and enjoy a feast of fruits and wine. Jeff Kent, who has this goal of getting rid of the returning castaway Jonathan Penner, now worries that he has to get rid of Mike Skupin as well. Pete on the other hand, has always wanted to get rid of Skupin too, because he has no mind of his own and RC just tells him whatever he wants to do. Pete also shares how he doesn't like RC at all. Skupin, on the other hand is elated that he finally reached the merge. He observes that Pete and Abi have been a a little quiet during their stay at Tandang which leaves him and RC as free agents and they would just have to use two other castaways. RC says that hey haven't been one big happy family at Tandang for 17 days.
