Survivor Live Recap: Season 38 Episode 5 – There’s Always A Twist

Previously On Survivor, there was a double eviction with Aubry and Wendy being voted off of the island. You can read all about what happened during the two-hour special episode right here.

It is Day 17. the day of the merge and everyone who has been voted out is back. They all had the choice to leave or stay and fight for another chance; each chose to stay and ended up on the Edge of Extinction. The details of what they have been through are theirs to share but Jeff reiterates they have fought extremely hard. They have earned advantages along the way to help them with their big challenge they will compete in. This is puzzle-like physical challenge I know I would fail; I am failing just watching it. Devens is the winner and will come back for the merge so now it is time for them to come up with a new tribe name. Devens is overly confident about winning people over and winning competitions while Aubry feels she got played but believes she grew up so much from being on the show. We are learning EOE was awful and it was such a mess; being there truly prepped the six to come back and it is not over. They all jave the chance to go back to Extinction for one more chance to return to Survivor Island. Everyone wants to ask Devens about the EOE but Kelley is not thrilled to see him back at all.

Julie gets a good vibe from him while chatting at the feast and is fearful of EOE, claiming she never wants to head there. Kelley and Lauren both have idles but they are in the minority so they are a little fearful, knowing they have to do what it takes. They talk to Joe, who is always in the majority, time to pitch him. He says he does not trust Kama after the way the voted out Aubry and the girls try to convince him he will get voted out. Back at camp, Devens opened his bag to find something but he cannot let anyone see it so he leaves so he walks away to figure out what it is exactly. It is an immunity idle which will only work if he stays in the game and makes it past tribal council. And it’s split so he must give one half of it to someone he trusts as a bargaining chip so he gives it to David. But, if either get voted out, it means nothing.

Time for the individual immunity challenge and Ron is the first out. It involves holding up a long stick with a statue but there is some wind to contend with. Oh, and they are on a beam so, again, I would be dunzo. Julie is the steadiest of them all as they have dropped like flies so it is down to her, Lauren, and Joe, who seems to drop on purpose. In the end, Julie is safe for the first individual immunity challenge so she must feel like a rock star, having wanted to be on the show for 18 years. Time for the manipulation to start so Devens is the first target and Julie goes to him and says everyone is going to vote him out. He runs to David, hands him his part of the idol, and tells him what Julie said. Now, Ron is chatting with Joe about what might happen at tribal and it is leaving him skeptical about Joe. So, Rob has to convince the Kama 6 to vote out Joe. It seems no one knows who to vote out as names are swirling and then it comes down to Joe and Kelley.

Tribal Council, night 19 and who knows who will be voted out. Reem, Chris, and Aubry are the only three who return as the jury because they are the ones who went back to EOE. Joe is hopeful the Kama tribe will stand by him but Ron is being kind of wishy washy. Time to vote! My money is on…oh, I am tired of all of  them.

Joe is the fourth member of the jury and has been officially voted out. I am not happy about this because I actually liked him but he could get back in if he plays with EOE and says this is the worst thing they could have done as he walks away. Next week, one player goes down and Devens believes he is the puppet master. You can catch it Wednesday at 8pm on CBS.
