Tonight’s Survivor Philippines 2012 episode looks like it could get quite interesting! It looks like Jonathan Penner is doing some conniving to find the Immunity Idle on Survivor 2012 Philippines and Lisa Whelchel, the teen star, is not being accepted by her tribe and is about to lose it on Survivor Season 25, but who was voted off Survivor Philippines?
Last week on Survivor Philippines 2012 we saw the new castaways form three new tribes: the Purple Tribe (Matsing Tribe), the Red Tribe (Kalabaw Tribe) and the Yellow Tribe (Tandang Tribe). I will be referring to them by their colors, because honestly there colors are easier to see then remember the spelling of those tribes! The Purple Tribe lost the Immunity Challenge and was sent to Tribal Council on Survivor 25. Zane was a hot mess the minute he got to camp and formed alliances with everyone and then sucked it up in the challenge. As much as the Purple Tribe wanted to send home Russell Shaw, they opted to send Zane home. Do you think that will hurt them as time goes on on Survivor Philippines 2012?
Tonight it looks like more rain, which it seemed to do a lot during the first episode, and we have a breakdown by Lisa Whelchel and Jonathan is caught in the act of searching for the Idle. Not sure how things will go tonight on Survivor 2012 Philippines, but these first few days on the island are crucial for forming alliances and making a name for yourself in your own tribe. Who has done that so far to you on Survivor Season 25?
The Purple Tribe comes back and Russell Shaw comes back and he says, yet again, he is going to take a step back and not be a leader. Didn’t he say that before and then he took over the tribe??? We shall see how long that one goes! Meanwhile, Angie and Malcolm cuddle during the night because “it is so cold.” Angie said it is nothing more than trying to stay warm and Malcolm agrees, but he admits he is attracted to her! Roxy is worried about them and thinks they need to be split up…agree?
RC is worried about the rice getting soggy because of the weather for the Yellow Tribe and as she checks it, she finds a clue for the Immunity Idle. However, Lisa Whelchel is standing right above her, but doesn’t see it. RC immediately heads over and gets Abi to work with her and hiding the clue from Lisa. Abi appreciates her telling her about the clue, but she doesn’t trust RC at all. She thinks RC and Mike are working together and whispering. RC denies it, but who knows.
On the Red Tribe, Jeff Kent hurt his knee when they were gathering their supplies right off the boat and now he is worried about being strong for the competition. Jonathan is worried about the Immunity Idle, but because of the constant rain no one is leaving the camp. They finally leave and he gets a chance to look, but he is not successful in finding it. He keeps thinking and thinking about it, until it pops in his mind…it is is in the rice bucket. He goes and takes off the top on the bucket and by golly, it is the Hidden Immunity Idle. It took him three tries, but he has the Idle and is so happy. Will it keep him in the game longer???
It is now day five on Survivor Philippines 2012 and Malcolm and Angie wake up cuddling again. Roxy is concerned and she tries to get Russell on board to break that up. Russell agrees, as Survivor couples aren’t a good thing. Roxy goes and talks with Denise about them, but Denise is in an alliance with Malcolm and she is concerned about a target being on his back now! Keep it in your pants, Malcolm!
Back to the Yellow Tribe and Lisa said she is an introvert and does not do chit chat very well. She sneaks off a lot and the tribe is worried she is looking for the Immunity Idle. Lisa heads out into the woods and has a moment of crying. She has been on her own since she was 12, so she doesn’t trust people. She said it is hard being on the outside and maybe she is not made to play Survivor 25. Do you think she can make it?
With the rain coming down constantly, Russell said the most important thing to do is keep the fire going. Malcolm and Denise are keeping the shelter safe, but Malcolm feels that Roxy is a weak link and not doing anything. Roxy has a little breakdown as well and is not in her comfort zone. Is anyone in there comfort zone on a show like this? The sun finally comes out and they are all feeling better and Roxy does some praying, which Denise thinks is crazy. She is not asking God to help her with the challenge, but she needs to dig deep. What do you think of those comments on Survivor 25?
It is time for the next Immunity Challenge: two members from each tribe will pull a sled out to three bundles of puzzle pieces. They will grab one stack and bring them back and then the next pair will go. Once all the pieces are collected, one person will serve as their caller and they will try and help two other members solve the puzzle. The first two tribes win Immunity and the losing tribe will head to Tribal Council. The first tribe to finish wins blankets, pillows and tarp. The second tribe to finish wins a tarp. The Yellow Tribe and Red Tribe each will sit someone out and it is Abi for the Yellow and Dawson for the Red.
The tribes try to figure out who will go twice with the sled and Roxy said she has been drinking less water, so it doesn’t make sense for her to go twice which shocks her tribe. The tribes get started and the Yellow Tribe gets out to an early lead and the Purple Tribe is in last place. The Red Tribe passes the Yellow in the second set of pieces and Roxy and Malcolm catch up for the Purple Tribe. Jeff is moving fine on that knee for the Red Tribe.
The Red Tribe gets their pieces back first and get started. The Yellow Tribe comes in second and the Purple Tribe is back late and they don’t want to lose again. The Yellow Tribe has their first puzzle completed and then the Purple Tribe follows right after on Survivor Season 25. The Yellow Tribe has their second puzzle done and working on the final puzzle and the Purple Tribe is right behind them. The Red Tribe gets their second puzzle done and they are all down to the final puzzle. The Yellow Tribe completes their puzzles and wins the challenge. It is a battle between Red and Purple, but the Red Tribe completes it first and the Purple Tribe loses yet again! Who do you think will go home for the Purple Tribe? I think it might be Roxy.
The Purple Tribe heads back to camp and Russell is pissed that Roxy and Angie didn’t want to do things for the challenge, even though he struggled with the sled. Russell thinks Roxy has been a target, but he needs her on the tribe. Roxy and Russell talk for a while in the water and it looks like they are going Angie. Then Malcolm and Angie talk and Malcolm thought it was a bad thing with him and Angie snuggling at night and he is worried. It all comes down to Denise. She is torn between her alliance with Malcolm, even though she would be on the bottom with them snuggling. Then she doesn’t trust Roxy fully, but it all comes down to Denise.
Time for Tribal Council on Survivor 2012 Philippines. When asked if she could change one thing about the tribe, Angie said cookies. WHAT??? Jeff Probst asked Malcolm what he thought about that response and he said it was okay and he can understand it. That is funny…get out of her pants Malcolm! The claws come out, as Roxy calls their relationship out. Malcolm said it is more like a friendship and he thinks of her as a little sister.
The fighting is done and time to vote for the Purple Tribe on Survivor 25. Jeff tallies the votes and comes back. No one plays the Immunity Idle…time for the votes. With only four votes cast, the second person voted out of Survivor Philippines 2012 is…Roxy! That means they all voted for her, including Russell. Good move or bad move? Will Angie and Malcolm hurt them in the future?
