“The little witches’ coven.” Survivor Cambodia Second Chance November 18 2015 recap

19 Nov

Kimmi begins the episode determined to break up the “little witches’ coven” of Kelley Wentworth, Ciera, and Abi. Meanwhile, the revelation that there are indeed immunity idols in the game gets everyone interested in looking for one, and even though Jeremy has one, he decides he’d like to have a second since he lost one of the “shields” he was hiding behind, namely Andrew.

While some of the players are at a reward and others are busy around camp, Jeremy goes sneaking off to look for an idol. He finds a clue that says to get the idol, he needs to slyly sneak away from camp in the middle of the night. At that late hour, everyone happens to be staying up  much later than usual. Finally Jeremy just says he’s going to the bathroom and goes and gets the idol. This was way too easy for him!

Stephen observes that Joe and Kelly Wigglesworth have become pals in sort of a brother/sister or aunt/nephew relationship. This gets him to thinking.

The challenge is one that’s been done before with the players standing on what look like half-submerged floating doghouses, with their feet on small ledges on the sides of the “doghouse roof.” This time there’s added difficulty: it’s raining hard and freezing cold. Eight minutes in, Jeff Probst starts making some generalizations on how success in the game depends on making the right move at the right time. Suddenly he grabs a machete and chops a rope at his feet, and a row of little floating balls suddenly floats to the surface perhaps 15 yards from the players. Probst announces that the first person to touch the ball across from him wins an advantage in the game but is out of the immunity challenge. There’s a brief pause, and Stephen dives in, and a heartbeat later Spencer does the same. They swim furiously, and believe it or not Stephen touches his ball first to get the advantage! The two watch the rest of the challenge, which comes down to Joe and Abi, and finally Joe wins.

Back at camp Kimmi reiterates that she wants one of the girls out. Certainly nobody wants a repeat of last episode when the majority group inexplicably didn’t split the vote, so they opt to split between Kelley Wentworth and Ciera, with Kelley receiving the most.

Stephen opens his advantage message and it’s “beyond his wildest dreams”: an opportunity to steal a vote from another player and convert it to one of his own, in addition to casting his own vote. So it’s even more powerful than Dan’s double vote from the prior season. But Stephen immediately says he won’t use it at the upcoming tribal council but save it for later!

Stephen then goes to the “three witches” and proposes teaming with them to vote Kelly Wigglesworth out. With not much else in the way of options, they’re all for it. Now he needs to pitch it to Jeremy and Spencer. He tells them they need to make a move, they can’t keep playing from the bottom, though Spencer doesn’t think they’re on the bottom (note Stephen is the man who previously said nobody is on the bottom). Jeremy and Spencer see the wisdom in what Stephen is saying, but the part they don’t like is the idea of having to trust three people they don’t trust. Particularly since one of them is the unpredictable Abi!

At tribal council, it’s raining hard and everyone is shivering. This time as Kass walks in, she flips off the entire group.

Near the end, Probst asks which of the players are seriously worried they could be the one voted out tonight, and six people raise their hands. When it’s time to vote, Stephen looks incredibly grim-faced, as he appears to be contemplating using his advantage. But he votes normally.

The votes are read and … Kelly Wigglesworth is voted out! Stephen, Jeremy, and Spencer did join with the three women. By the way, Kelly is not one of the players who said she was worried tonight! She obviously should have been.

Favorites: Spencer, Joe, Jeremy, Stephen, Tasha, Kelley Wentworth, Ciera

No chance: Abi, Kimmi, Keith

Jury and who I think they’ll vote for: Kass (Spencer), Andrew (Joe), Kelly (Joe)
