Wednesday night on CBS’ “Survivor: Nicaragua”, the tribe tried to make sense of last week’s actions by Naonka and Kelly, who both quit the show with just 11 days left to go. And the two alliances each became tighter. Or did they?
Who went home this week on “Survivor?” Hint: No one quit.
With Naonka and Kelly out, the alliances this week are clear: Chase Holly and Jane; Benry, Fabio and Dan. What was also clear was that Sash was the swing vote- and his vote would go to the highest bidder.
For this week’s reward it is a re-do some past (and messy) challenges. From racing through mud pits to digging through hay, the final winner gets a night at a resort that includes a feast, a shower and a good night’s sleep on an actual bed.
Chase wins the challenge and is given the choice to take two people with him, He easily chooses Holly- no brainer, as she gave up her hotdog movie feast last week so the whole tribe would get supplies instead. But Chase’s second choice- Jane- could come back to haunt him.
He later regrets bringing Jane to reward with him because now Sash- everyone’s favorite swing vote- is left back at camp with the other alliance. He approaches Sash when he gets back and apologizes for not taking him.
Meanwhile, Jane holds a vigil for her beloved chicken- nicknamed Kelly Nay (“Because they’re both chickens”). Yeah, the guy tribe offed Kelly Nay and feasted on her while Janey was at the resort. Not cool.
Later it’s time for the Immunity Challenge and the worst case scenario (for both alliances) happens: Sash wins immunity.
And at tribal, the votes are all over the place. But while Fabio and Benry are neck in neck to be voted out, it’s Benry who is blindsided and voted off of “Survivor”. Indeed, alliances are made to be broken.
