My Recap of the Latest Episodes of ‘Survivor: Season 35’

I haven’t written any recaps on Survivor: Season 35 because the episodes, until last night, have been pretty predictable with lackluster endings but finally there was a switcheroo and I’m going to write my opinion on it. Enjoy.

Ben Gets An Immunity Idol

I loved how Ben ended up obtaining his immunity idol after the reward challenge in the first episode. He had gone to read his loved one’s letter up in the woods and fate led him to that clue for the immunity idol. That’s some classic Survivor stuff right there.

Judging from the way everything’s shaking out for Ben I’m predicting he’s going to get to the final three and he’s going to be the one to win this season of Survivor.

Destroying The Core Seven

One of my favorite things in Survivor is seeing comfortable people get the seat taken out from underneath them and that’s exactly what happened to Ryan, Chrissy, and J.P in the first episode. They were sitting pretty, completely confident, even though this is Survivor, that they’re pact to get to the final seven was going to happen. What were they thinking? They were utterly blinded by their power in the game and got an ultimate slap in the face by the new majority.

When J.P. went home I was beaming with joy at the shock on Ryan and Chrissy’s faces. It was a fantastic blindside and I enjoyed every moment of it.

The Second Episode

Unfortunately the next episode went right back to being boring like the others. There were interesting ideas thrown around in that episode, like the new core 5 possibly voting out Ben in what would’ve been the ultimate blindside. Unfortunately they didn’t and that was very disappointing.

I’m the type of Survivor fan who wants to see a season full of memorable players and bold moves. This season really doesn’t have that. The first big move was voting out J.P but why stop there? Don’t play safe. Make the season interesting and have two stunning blindsides happen in a row.

I was glad that there were two episodes of Survivor. I just wish they were a little better than they were.

I thank you for reading my recap and I hope you have a wonderful day.

My Overview of Episode 6 of Survivor: Season 35

This past episode of Survivor was full of surprising twists and turns and plotlines leading into the rest of the season and that is always an exciting thing. I dislike watching an episode of Survivor and just by looking at how the editors put the episode together I can figure out which tribe is going to lose and who is most likely going to go home. That wasn’t the case with this episode.

On the blue tribe, everyone was scared of Joe finding an idol. Devan was sticking to Joe like glue but…Joe is tricksy. He managed to get away from him and sure enough, he found a clue to yet another hidden immunity idol. Now, this was early in the episode and so I thought their tribe would end up losing and there would be another showdown at tribal council with Joe the Idol Man.

And then on the red tribe, you have Cole getting on everyone’s, including me, last nerve because he’s always so hungry. Now he did end up passing out so he really wasn’t playing when he said he needed to eat but this was yet another direction the episode could’ve headed towards the end at tribal council.

After the Immunity Challenge, however, the blue and red tribe won and that was surprising considering all of the situations that were being set up throughout the episode. That was an incredible Immunity Challenge by the way. At one point it got so intense towards the end of the challenge I closed my eyes in sheer suspense. That was one of the best challenges I have ever seen.

So anyway, the yellow tribe lost and that meant it was a showdown between Ali and J.P.


I have to say I was kind of shocked when she got kicked off. I mean I would’ve done the same thing if I was in Ryan and Chrissy’s shoes because is too strong of a strategic player. If she got to the merge she would be a force to be reckoned with. It was mainly stunning because just two tribal councils before the last one she was on top of the world and had complete control. It’s amazing how fast things began to spin out of control for her game. And to think she was only one day away from making it to the merge. That’s a bad way to go.

I’m excited to see what happens next week once everyone merges. Will there be epic showdowns, shocking betrayals, suspenseful immunity challenges, jaw-dropping blindsides? I guess we’ll find out next Wednesday.

I thank you for reading my overview and I hope you have a beautiful day.

Survivor: Season 35 Gets Its First Blindside

Survivor is notorious for its epic blindsides and this season finally has gotten its first major blindside. What I’m loving about this season is the fact that these players have really come to play the game of Survivor. Take Chrissy for example, she looks like a harmless old lady but she’s a lot smarter than people actually perceive her. When she planted the seeds in J.P and Ryan that Roark was trying to create an all-girls alliance it really worked because Chrissy was totally on the chopping block due to her slip up at the immunity challenge. That idea, that suspicion that Roark, a player that J.P and Ryan didn’t really know, would be diabolical enough to come up with an all-girls alliance sprouted in the men’s minds and Roark ended up getting the ultimate blindside.


I was stunned yet excited at the same time. Chrissy is one of the scariest players of the season. She’s quiet and under the radar but if she happens to make it to the merge she’ll be one to watch for. She knows the game of Survivor well and I wouldn’t be surprised to see her in the final three on the 39th day.

I thank you for reading my overview and IĀ hope you have a wonderful day.


A Surprise Change of Tribes Makes Survivor Worth Watching Again

The last three episodes of Season 35 of Survivor have been subpar. The tribal councils have been predictable, the situations have been boring, but this week changed all of that as soon as the three tribes had to switch teammates.

I loved the dynamics that the new tribes ended up having. The lovebirds, Jennifer and Cole, ended up still being on the same tribe. Ashley and Alan, ended up being tribemates which is hilarious considering the previous blowup Alan did in episodeĀ one when he exposed Ashley and J.P for supposedly having an idol. And Ryan and Chrissy ended up on the same tribe which is super convenient considering that Ryan was the one who gave her that special advantage in the first episode.

So, I loved the tribes’ shakeup and I was excited to see what new alliances would sprout from this switch up.

Survivor Underwhelms Yet Again

Last week’s episode of Survivor was pretty lackluster. It was totally predictable and not that exciting, at all. So I was hoping the third episode would be at least a little better. And for the most part, it was, slightly. It turns out Ashley and J.P on the Heroes tribe really would have ended up being a power couple if Alan hadn’t already nipped that in the bud. On the Healers tribe, the two lovebirds are getting closer by the second and because of that “Tarzan” told his new island girlfriend that Joe had the idol. Uh-oh. And the Hustlers were trying to recuperate after losing the last challenge. But besides that, there weren’t any juicy conversations or idol hunting. It was just a boring episode of Survivor that ended with the Hustlers losing yet again and the tribe had to decide whether they would stick with Patrick, the guy who literally lost them the immunity, or Lauren, who seems to always have a grumpy attitude. They decided, unsurprisingly, to get rid of Patrick and the episode was over.

Now I’m looking forward to next week because the three tribes will merge into two and that means new alliances will have to be made and maybe some old alliances will be broken. I’m excited to see what happens from the new twist and hopefully, it’ll liven up this season of Survivor at least a tad.

I thank you for reading my overview of this week’s episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers and I hope you have a wonderful day.


Is Season 35 of Survivor Already Turning Out To Be Boring?

After last week’s riveting, suspenseful episode I was thrilled to watch this latest episode of Survivor. And then it started and the episode kept going on and on and nothing really exciting happened, except for Joe finding that idol early in the hour.

There weren’t any surprising twists, there weren’t any shocking alliances being broken, it was just a lot of dialogue and no action. And then when Simone was kicked off it wasn’t a surprise in the slightest. It was, overall, a very underwhelming episode and it’s kind of got me thinking, is this season of Survivor going to be yet another lackluster season? And if so, that’s a real shame.

Survivor is a great show but when it starts relying on older, more experienced and, truthfully, exciting players to be in each of its seasons that’s when the show is going to be in a little bit of trouble. The last season I watched that I really enjoyed that didn’t involve having players like Boston Rob or Ozzy or even the legendary Sandra had to have been, I think it was Season 32. Since then, besides Survivor: Game Changers, the seasons have just been…a little underwhelming. I’m hoping that this was just a boring episode because this is early in the season but if it keeps going at this rate this is going to be a long, boring season of Survivor.

Well, that’s my overview of Survivor this week. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.

The New Season of Survivor Is Here!

35 seasons, seventeen years, and Survivor is still going as strong as ever. After last season I was a little skeptical that this new season wouldn’t be as good as Survivor: Game Changers, considering that Season 34 had so many huge personalities and incredible Survivor players. I was excited about this new dynamic however in terms of the three groups, Heroes, Healers, and Hustlers. Would these people really live up to their groups’ identities or would the titles just mainly boost their egos?

When Season 35 debuted its premiere last night I was ecstatic. One of my favorite shows is Survivor and so whenever there’s a new season I am so excited to see the new faces and new idols and new situations that Survivor never seems to disappoint on. And last night’s premiere was not an exception. Continue reading The New Season of Survivor Is Here!
