Next Time On… Survivor is a little blog I’m doing here on Inside Survivor, predicting the events of the next episode based on hints from the previous one as well as the preview trailers and commercials.
100-percent spoiler free speculation! Let’s do it!
Part 1: Previously On… Survivor
Let’s see how I did with my predictions last week.
1. Someone on the Brawn tribe, I’m thinking Alecia, will obtain a hidden immunity idol. The Brawn tribe will also win immunity. Finally.
Grade: I was close! Alecia stumbled upon the first piece of this insanely complicated idol-containment contraption but gave away her information. A little more patience and she could have figured it out. Brawn did win immunity, though! I’ll give myself a C- overall for the Brawns.
2. The Beauty tribe will also win immunity. The hidden immunity idol will remain in that tree.
Grade: Again, right about immunity, wrong about the idol. I am beyond impressed with Tai the tree whisperer. A lot of people, including myself, thought that cooperation between tribemates would be necessary to get the key out of the tree tube, but we underestimated Tai’s ingenuity. I’ll give myself a D for not having enough faith in Mr. Trang.
3. The Brains tribe will go to Tribal Council and Liz will be voted out.
Grade: Don’t mess with Debbie. I give myself an A.
4. Julia will be discovered to be a panda bear.
Grade: Y’know, it wasn’t proven, but it wasn’t disproven either. I’m leaving this one open for now.
Part 2: Let’s get this out of the way
I hate medical evacuations. Regardless of how much I love or despise a player, I want to see the gameplay out for each castaway. Even in One World, I wanted Colton to get what was coming to him. Some people think it adds to the drama of the show where I believe it’s just a momentary burst of adrenaline followed by a rather empty feeling. Of course, I realize that these unfortunate events cannot be controlled – if they happen, they happen – but man, they are a huge bummer to me.
So, let’s get this out of the way: I know who next week’s medically evacuated castaway is, but I am not going to tell you. I’m sure many of you have figured it out anyways, but I view revealing this information the same way as spoiling a boot. Normally I would make educated guesses, but this wouldn’t be a guess.
The teaser at the end of episode three was deceptive, but it only takes a handful of pauses to figure it out. The commercial spot gives even more information, revealing that three different players go down during a single challenge, but only showing medical supporting two of them.
Part 3: Wrap-Up
-There will be no Tribal Council in the next episode.
-Someone on the Brains, I’m thinking Peter, will begin to figure out how to get the hidden immunity idol.
-Nick will say 20 words, tops.
That’s all for this week, but feel free to tweet me @JacobDerwin if you want to tell me how wrong I am. Thanks for reading!
