Survivor: Game Changers Episode 11

In one of the dumbest moves of the game, Sierra made the mistake in Survivor: Game Changers Episode 10 of not only telling Sarah that she had a secret advantage but also that she would give it to her if she were eliminated. This was immediately followed by Sierra’s elimination.

In her attempt to convince Sierra that she wasn’t one of the people flipping, Sarah acted confused at Tribal Council. This is not lost on the others.

For the immunity challenge, they will steady a balancing board with one hand while building a stack of cards with the other. Whatever else is going on with everybody losing their stacks doesn’t make a difference. The one to watch is Aubry, who sets a record of 6 minutes (the previous best was 17 minutes). The most interesting part of this is that 33 days in we get to see that there is someone named Aubry on the island.

Andrea is pushing for the Sarah elimination, but nobody is biting. In turn, Cirie proposes to Sarah that they turn on Andrea.

They all keep bringing up each others’ names, but Brad is a massive target, even if they wouldn’t have anyone to fish for them like Michaela is insisting he do now before they get rid of him.

With 5 votes, Andrea has been voted in the island, leaving Aubry as the odd woman out.

For the next immunity challenge, they will stand on a tower, raise a bucket of water to fill a chute, swim to shore with a key, and unlock and solve a puzzle. I thought this would take a while, but they seem to be filling these rather quickly, meaning that most of the challenge is the puzzle. Michaela, Troyzan, Aubry, and Brad are first to the beach. Sarah comes from out of nowhere to take the lead, but she is not correct. Brad follows suit. Then Michaela kicks her puzzle. Brad tries again and wins immunity.

If there were one result they did not want, that was it. Brad was the easy vote as a challenge threat who apparently even does puzzles. They had the chance to get rid of him, but they’re stuck with him for another vote.

Tai and Aubry are discussing the thought that got Andrea into trouble. Sarah needs to go next. Except Aubry, who has done nothing, decides that her big resume building move would be to get rid of Tai. Why?

Aubry tells Cirie the plan, who in turn tells Sarah, who doesn’t believe Aubry over Tai. I’m not sure she can really believe either of them. Following this conversation, to prove her loyalty, Sarah gives her steal a vote advantage to Cirie to hold just in case.

Cirie’s plan is to steal Sarah’s vote with her own advantage. Then she warns Tai that he is in danger but that she’s going to save him. Yeah, warn the guy with two idols.

As promised, Cirie uses the advantage to steal Sarah’s vote. Sarah and Jeff suggest she read the advantage. There is an important rule that Cirie did not catch. It is non-transferrable and cannot be stolen. That’s not going to work then. Giving her the advantage is nothing more than symbolic because the only person who can actually use it is Sarah.

Then Sarah gets up and whispers in Tai’s ear, and so begins another whisperfest. Cirie hopes to convince Sarah of the truth that she was just trying to save her by at the same time trying to screw her over.

Now Sarah, as the only person who can use her advantage, decides to use it for herself. She will steal Tai’s vote.

Despite all the drama, Tai still doesn’t use a hidden immunity idol.

With 4 votes, Michaela has been voted off the island. How did Michaela’s name get thrown into this? The Aubry vote came from Cirie, while Aubry and Michaela stuck to the plan of getting rid of Tai. So Sarah pretty much just went to the enemy to determine the vote, to the extent that she actually has any enemies.
