The tribe swap is one of those exciting moments each season in Survivor, where the course of the game completely shifts. For some, it’s a lifeline that saves them from having been in a terrible position on their old tribe. For others, it’s a not-so-subtle reminder of how much luck is needed to get far into the game, as by the luck-of-the-draw, some players are knocked from their position of power and are left trying to figure out their next move on the bottom of their new tribe.
One thing is for sure though: Somebody gets voted-out after every tribe swap, meaning that the tribe swap always claims a victim. This season, that victim was 29-year-old marine animal trainer, Morgan Ricke, who pretty much nobody thought was in any danger this week.
If you missed any of the action, you can catch up with our Episode 3 Recap, as well as checking out the Podcast below.
Brandi Glanville has been busy doing press this week, as she just ended a stint on Big Brother Celebrity edition and is now also promoting her newest reality endeavor, a family edition of Marriage Boot Camp that she filmed with her dad, Guy. She was spotted at SiriusXM studios with Renee Graziano ahead of the show’s premiere tomorrow night.
Even though Dorit called Camille a “c**t” for no reason, told Camille that she would give her a strap-on, and gave Erika Girardipanties as a gag gift last season, Dorit did not find it at all funny when Camille gave her a ball gag during the last episode. Apparently those who dish it out, cannot take it.
You’ve got to love the bluntness of Survivor: Ghost Island contestant Kellyn Bechtold. During tonight’s episode, which featured a surprise tribe swap, she compared seeing her new terrible camp to how it feels when you visit someone’s baby who is just plain ugly…despite the mother going on and on about how it’s their pride and joy, all you are thinking is, man, that’s one ugly baby.
And while her honesty was on full display during that interview segment, this after all, is Survivor. Honesty is not necessarily a virtue out there in the game, and tonight’s episode featured very little of it as the remaining 18 players jockeyed for position after seeing their tribes switched up.
As I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Episode 3 of Survivor: Ghost Island, so if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add too that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap, and is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Normally when Jennifer Lawrence shows up for Watch What Happens Live, she says hilarious things that the Bravolebrities find flattering and repost on social media.
Referring to Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent as a “cunt” was not one of those times. Jennifer Lawrence may be an A-list actress, but I still can’t believe she messed with Lala. Then again Lala deleted her responses to the episode, so clearly the actress was a formidable opponent.
As loyal as I am (and have always been) to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I cannot help wondering where the show goes from here. Season 6 (with those twins and Amber Marchese) was the worst ever. Then they took a break in filming Season 7 since there’s no way they could have done a season of this show while Teresa Giudicewas in prison. Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga made up after years of feuding during that season and turned their one-liners against Jacqueline Laurita. Other than that, the season was just OK. I was expecting so much more after waiting forever and a half for it, but I obviously watched every single episode (many times over).
Jacqueline was out for Season 8 and we watched Siggy Flickerand Margaret Josephs go at it for most of the season. Conversely, Teresa experienced her first season where she was on good terms with every cast member- including her former enemy Danielle Staub. With Siggy off the show, we are only left with some second-rate tension between Dolores Catania and “Friends of the Housewives” Danielle to sustain us. Is this the beginning of the end?
Maybe time does heal all wounds. She even made her way to the clubhouse for an episode of Watch What Happens Live. They did not actually discuss the possibility of bringing Brandi back as a Real Housewife, I’m still hoping for it since she makes a point to be up to date on all of the latest drama in Beverly Hills.
