'Survivor' Play-by-Play: First Blindside, First Quitter, First Injury
Without fail, you can always count on these three things happening on a season of "Survivor": someone getting blindsided, someone trying to quit, and someone getting injured.
It's just a matter of when, how, and whom. On this week's episode of "Blood vs. Water," all three coincide — and all three are surprises.
Let's find out what happened on to the play-by-play:
0:01: At Galang, Tyson has a cupcake belt. Seriously, a belt with a CUPCAKE on it. Can we get the name of that store, please? "Who wants to take a lick?" he says to everybody's delight. Well, except Colton, who's still being a sourpuss. "Nobody wants to talk about strategy," he whines. Sigh … Colton. Don't you realize this is totally ruining your chances of winning the game? Well, apparently, he does, but chooses not to change his behavior.
0:03: Both tribes troop to Redemption Island to watch the duel. Tyson is upset that Tadhana voted out Rachel, but doesn't switch with her — which throws the whole "vote out the strong person's loved one" strategy out the door. Both Tyson and Marissa choose to yell at Brad, as well they should.
0:06: Oh, gawd. Colton is crying. Again. He doesn't want to be there. He "can't do this." Jeff Probst asks if he wants to quit. The first time, he pretended to have appendicitis, and didn't. Colton just pouts more. What?! You came back a second time to wuss out AGAIN?!
0:11: Colton claims he's tired of being "the hated person." Well, gee, there's a solution to that — stop being a whiny, uh, witch. Tina calls him out and says he's just annoyed because they aren't playing the game his way and he can't win.
Colton rushes over to hug Caleb, then tells a thoroughly disapproving Probst he's definitely quitting. And without another word, Colton leaves. Wow! Why did he come back only to quit a few days in?
Caleb reacts to Colton leaving:
0:13: Alright, back to the business at hand. The duel involves stacking domino-like blocks, then triggering them to break a tile. Candice (who we will now call The Machine) sets hers up first. The dominoes work, and she wins.
0:17: Marissa and Rachel have some trouble with their dominoes, but eventually give it another go. Marissa's line works; Rachel doesn't. So, Rachel is out. She hugs Tyson, throws her buff into the fire, and leaves.
