Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Jenna Bowman and Michael Yerger

It was two-for-the-price-of-one on Survivor: Ghost Island this week, when a game twist sent the remaining 10 contestants scrambling. In the end, two more Malolo bit the dust, one who was a fan-favorite and the other whom just couldn’t seem to catch a break.

Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 11 Recap: Double Trouble

There was two-times the fun on this week’s episode of Survivor, when we got to witness two Immunity Necklaces, two Tribal Councils, and even a contestant who got to cast two votes. This wasn’t the usual late-season case of “let’s-mash-two-tribal-councils-into-one-episode-because-the-votes-are-so-predictable.” Instead, it was a pretty cool game twist that added new, exciting and complex layers to a game that already has several of them.

But before we dive in, 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 11 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.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Desi Afuye: ‘My True Plan Was To Get The Guys Out’

It was no surprise to learn that the majority Naviti alliance was going to turn on one another, it was more a question of when. Well, we received an answer to that question this week on Survivor, when Desi Afuye took the first shot at trying to dethrone those currently in power.

Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 10 Recap: The Perfect Crime

Post-merge Survivor is always exciting because the closer the players get to the end, the more they realize their position in the game. This usually leads to those who are on the bottom trying to make big moves to shake things up, and for those in control to try to desperately maintain their foothold. What this means for viewers is we get more exciting episodes like we did tonight, where we finally saw the majority Naviti alliance crumble under its own weight, while those on the bottom gained a little more power.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Libby Vincek: ‘I Knew I Was A Goner’

For those wondering if Libby Vincek will be OK after getting voted off of Survivor: Ghost Island, please rest assured that she’s fine. Billed as a “social media strategist” in the cast release this season, it may come as no surprise to you that Libby is also a model, and was not one of the “super-fans” picked for the show this season. She wasn’t available for the normal round of press phone interviews this past week due to being on a modeling shoot in London, but Libby was kind enough to reply to some of my questions via email even while overseas.

Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 9 Recap: Casualties Of War

Sadly, there was no rapping on Survivor this week, but that didn’t mean there weren’t battles to be had. Entering Wednesday’s episode, we were down to just 12 contestants left this season, and at last count I believe roughly 286 hidden Idols…give or take. For the newest member of this season’s Survivor jury, it had to be a frustrating end, since the person just couldn’t quite figure out what was making him/her a target. The larva grubs (or whatever the hell they were) weren’t the only things that were tough to swallow this week.

But before we dive in, 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 9 of Survivor: Ghost Island, so if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later!

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Chris Noble:

Each season of Survivor, we expect to see a new batch of “Survivor firsts,” even as we find ourselves over halfway through Season 36. But I think it’s safe to say that nobody – and I mean nobody – could have predicted this Survivor first: That following a merge episode – typically the best and most exciting episode of each season – a rap video starring the first member of the Survivor jury would outshine and overshadow all of the episode’s main events. Well my friends, it has happened. A Survivor first indeed.

Despite pleading with Chris Noble to set down his pen – or at least use his eraser – Wendell tried to do us all a favor when, while casting his vote, called Chris “trash…at rapping,” and urged him to give up his budding career. But if there’s anything we’ve learned about Chris during his time on Survivor, it’s that he’s going to march to the beat-box of his own drum.

Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 8 Recap: And That’s A Rap

Curses! No, for real. Yes curses and the ongoing attempts to reverse them has been the dominating theme this season on Survivor, but sometimes its not an item or a relic that will bring you bad luck…it’s the choices that you make. If good luck – as the saying goes – is when opportunity meets preparation, then it could be said that the person eliminated tonight was neither prepared, nor did they seize their opportunity to avoid getting voted out.

Tonight was the famed “merge episode” and it gave us everything we could have hoped for: Scrambling, strategy, drama and more than a few laughs. And speaking of laughs, there is a video that came out of the result of tonight’s episode that you simply HAVE to see to believe.

But before we dive in, 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 8 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.
