Previously On... Survivor: After Reed watched the majority alliance turn on one of their own, he saw an opportunity to flip the game using everyone on the bottom. Reed convinced the majority alliance to split their votes, but his real plan was to vote out Jon, teaming up with Alec, Wes, and Keith. But at Tribal Council, nothing went right. Keith gave away their plan. Two Idols were played and Keith's son Wes was voted out. Eight are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
Jon keeps saying that he knew he was going to play the Idol which is total bullcrap. He wasn't going to play it and I convinced him to play it but Jon is so concerned with looking like he's the mastermind of everything he does but he's really not at all.
I was so mad when he took credit for something that I helped him do. That he was like, "Stop saying you helped and Natalie helped. It was my decision." I was like, "Screw you, I'm going to the top three then."
I'm excited to be back at Exile because there were two Idols played last night and there was going to be a new clue for a new Idol. So finding this Idol is something that's definitely going to help me. Having a lot of time on Exile gives you a lot of time to think. And right now, my fear in this game is that I've become the biggest threat. And that's scary because people try to get out the largest threats so I'm not going to stop until I find the damn thing. I'm looking around and I see cliffs all over the place and there's trees hanging off of them just shooting out. Saw a bunch of sideways trees and started to seeing a lot of cracks and crevices. Started thinking "You know, this looks like the perfect place to hide an Idol."
Riding horses was amazing. We got to see, like, Nicaragua from another view. We weren't stuck on a beach anymore and we were just taking it all in. It was absolutely magnificent. I don't think I'll ever forget, you know, the experience.
To have Baylor and me together was fantastic and then to have Natalie along, who really adores my daughter as a big-sister kind of type. She'll be like a daughter to me forever. I couldn't have gone on that Reward with anybody else and have that same experience.
This was the most amazing Reward but it's hard to have a good time because we're nervous that Jaclyn, being back at camp with these three guys she could easily be swayed and told things that would change her mind about how she feels about my mom, me and Natalie.
Final 3 with me, Baylor, and Missy would be a hand-picked team for me to go to Final 3 with. I would be a sure win, in my head. I mean, anything can happen but I would be completely comfortable going into Final 3 with them.
It's just so funny that Missy would pick Natalie. Like I don't know if that was a smartest move on Missy's part. And maybe it's just me being hot-headed and mad because I didn't get to go horseback riding but that was dumb!
Naturally the goal is still to make Jaclyn see the logic in what happened today. Missy, Baylor, and Natalie will go to the Top 3 and they will take out Jon and Jaclyn in the process. Hopefully this illuminates that for her and um, I'm hoping to be able to capitalize on that moving forward.
Alec, Red, and Keith are all like up on me now and being super nice and it's so funny. It's like "Really, guys?!" And I want to say "Stop, like stop being fake!" But at the same time, I'm interested to see how tonight plays out with the guys and what they try and pitch to me.
And it's not the first time Jon has came back from Exile and I was like "Hold the phone, we're flipping again!" And we're in the middle again! It's so funny. I don't understand why this keeps happening.
We get back to camp from the Reward this morning and my fear for Jaclyn is that Reed was going to bend her ear so it's important to keep an eye up. I have to keep nurturing Jaclyn to make sure that she knows that she's still got me because I think Reed works fast and who knows what Alec says.
Jaclyn is a cool chick. I like Jaclyn a lot so it was a smart move and making her feel as comfortable as she can and that doesn't mean she's going to vote with us but it's not going to hurt anybody. It's just kind of like cream cheese. You know, cream cheese, you can't hurt many things with putting cream cheese on it.
Looking at Alec and Jaclyn, I'm thinking "Why is Jaclyn flirting with him?" Jon's been gone two days and Alec's and her body language is just really inappropriate. If I had a boyfriend here, I wouldn't be acting like that with Alec.
It made me definitely feel suspicious that Jaclyn is working with Alec more closely than I thought. My concern is definitely that Jaclyn will be swayed by Alec and the other guys. And if she swayed then Jon swayed because Jaclyn and Jon do everything together. So Jaclyn and Alec flirting and talking about the game is just not OK.
After not winning Immunity today, it might be dead man walking at this point. But Jon may hear something from Jaclyn that spooks him and maybe I could take out Missy tonight. So essentially my whole plan, again hinges on Jon and Jaclyn.
So tonight at Tribal, the options are go with Reed and vote out Missy tonight, and then, you know, there's the option with Missy in our alliance to vote out Reed tonight. I'm gonna be like "OK, Jon, you don't know that this happened but we're in the middle again and we have another big decision to make."
When I got back, after my two day Exile, all I wanted to do was spend time with her. I missed her so much. Like, the only other thing that I did while I was on Exile, I got paranoid and I missed Jaclyn. And the first thing, have Jaclyn throw all this paranoia back on me. It was almost like "I thought this was done!"
So Jaclyn is mad at me now. I guess in voicing my frustration, I think Jaclyn took it as me like not being appreciative of her giving me information which that's not the case. I mean, I just want to be with my girlfriend.
I don't think he realized what he was doing when he snapped. But if he thinks he's, you know, that he's got it... (sniffles) He didn't need my help. It didn't matter what happened in the two days that he was gone... (sniffles) He'll figure it out for himself. So you know, if he's got that attitude, screw him.
I was kind of in the middle of doing this pitch when Natalie walks up and sits down. And Jon starts winking at me. (winks) He's going "That's why I can't trust you and that's why I just can't work with you, Reed. It just doesn't make any sense." And that was actually encouraging because if he's willing to go out on a limb and do, you know, a kind of wink thing between us, then maybe he's considering it a little more than he wants to let on. I think Jaclyn got a little confused because I don't think she necessarily saw the wink happen and she was still stewing about, I think being blown up at by Jon. Which I'm kinda like (groans) "That makes me nervous."
After our argument, the only person I would expect Jon to talk to would be Missy because he looks to his mom for advice in real life and I think that Missy has taken on that role on the island. And it made me mad that he talked to her for like half-hour and didn't come talk to me at all. That made me even more mad. Like "You're not fighting with Missy, you're fighting with me."
My fears are that Jon and Jaclyn are not as attached to the hip as they seem to be and they do have a lot of friction when it comes to how to play this game. At the end of the day, I want Jon and Jaclyn fine for tonight. I don't want any, I can't do any more surprises at Tribal.
I'm getting the silent treatment right now from Jaclyn. And it's the most frustrating thing that she does. There's no point. Talk it out. Let's talk. Definitely my only chance to talk before Tribal and Jaclyn is over there flirting with Alec. So what do we do? Vote for Reed or vote for Missy?
My whole plan hinges on Jon and Jaclyn and she's furious. She's stomping around camp and not talking to him. My life hinges on those two talking with each other and figuring out do they want to go with this alliance or that alliance?
Challenge:Crush Jeff Probst will ask the castaways a series of questions about the people in this game. If they answer a question correctly, they get to chop another person's rope. Once a person's rope has been chopped three times, that person is out of the game. The last person left standing wins reward. Reward: A horseback ride through Nicaragua along with dinner, dessert, and a overnight stay at the house. Winner:Missy Payne (shared withBaylor WilsonandNatalie Anderson) (exiledJon Misch)
Each person will balance an oversized paddle on a stand. They will each roll a ball down the paddle and attempt to land it in a hole. The first person to get one ball in each of the six holes wins Immunity. Winner:Keith Nale
This experience has been the most amazing-slash-terrifying experience I think I've ever had in my life. This has brought Josh and I even closer with both being such super nerds about this show but being able to share this together has been so incredible. So um, Probst snuffed my torch tonight, which in an odd way is a dream come true too.
