For the first time ever, I missed the first 20 minutes of Survivor. Not because I was busy doing something else. Trust me, I always make time for Survivor. It is my Wednesday 8 .m. priority. Instead, there was something far more serious happening that temporarily forced Survivor off my TV. My local CBS affiliated opted to preempt tonight’s episode as severe weather — with potentially tornadic activity — swept through my area. Yes, I get it. Safety tops Survivor. So, my recap will begin where Tony did his outrageous llama reenactment. But because my coverage of the first 20 minutes is missing, I have a fun favor to ask you readers. Jump on inside to check out my special twist for this episode’s recap!
Fans on multiple forums were pushing for Tasha Fox to win Survivor: Cagayan. Unfortunately, their hopes were dashed when she found herself on the bad side of the vote at the latest Tribal Council. In my interview with Tasha, she expressed her appreciation for all of the fan support, defended her decision to keep J’Tia in the game as long as she did and revealed why she didn’t align with Spencer earlier on. Plus, what does she think of Tony and Kass? Who does she think is playing the best at this point? All that and more inside this interview! Enjoy!
Chaos Kass? More like crazy Kass. Her bad hearing and fast assumptions sparked a fight with Tony on tonight’s Survivor: Cagayan. Although he wasn’t making any negative remarks about her whatsoever, Kass believed she overheard Tony call her a bitch while asking Spencer and Woo to vote her out next. It was a discussion that she obviously misheard. Instead of trying to determine what actually happened, Kass flipped her lid and went after Tony, declaring she was going to vote him out. ”You write my name down and you’re going home,” he argued before revealing to the entire tribe that he found the special Idol. It was another kooky episode with yet another big blindside.
Another beauty bit the dust when the final seven castaways booted Jefra Bland out of the game on the latest episode of Survivor: Cagayan. Instead of flipping alliances to join Spencer, Tasha and Jeremiah just a few days earlier, Jefra opted to stay true with her primary allies, leaving the question of: What if? What if she had swapped sides? Would it have been a better move? Would it have kept her longer in the game? These are questions she discussed in depth during our interview. But that’s not all… Jefra said she respects the game of Survivor too much to be a bitter jury member. Awesome! I totally respect somebody who votes based on strategies instead of hurt feelings. Jefra also weighed in on her personal Survivor story of beating cervical cancer and even told me where her name originated. There’s lots to soak up with this chat, so dive on in!
I have always loved the Survivor auction. I find it completely entertaining to watch the starving contestants impatiently spend hundreds of dollars on various foods instead of waiting for the expected advantage item. It’s also one of the most frustrating elements to see supposedly smart players waste their cash when they could ultimately bid on something that could help them last longer in the game. This season’s unpredictability continued as several castaways didn’t spend a dime and got into an interesting situation when the special advantage popped up. Damn! I love this season!
If you do a Google search for Jeremiah Wood, you get a mixed bag of results. First, there’s the obvious content about him competing on Survivor: Cagayan. Then, there’s a slew of pictures of him modeling clothes — or lack thereof — for various companies like Wrangler and Abercrombie. The 34-year-old castaway kept his successful modeling career a secret throughout his time on Survivor — up until the last moments before he was voted out of the game. He felt it was the appropriate time to reveal to his allies, Spencer and Tasha, that he was a fashion model. Shortly after he came clean, his entire game was done when Jeremiah found himself voted out of the game. I had the chance to chat with Jeremiah today where he expressed his feelings toward Tony, explained why he was so close to Spencer and ultimately revealed this season will end with a final two. Plus, he responds to the comment Brice dished out that labeled him as a cockroach. Plus, there’s plenty of pics for you ladies to enjoy inside this article!
It was back to the #SpyShack for Tony on Survivor: Cagayan as his allies were totally pissed he had flipped on them to vote out LJ. Going way back to the first episode, Tony piled up branches and leaves right next to the tribe’s water well to create Spy Shack 2.0. This makeshift shanty was built with one goal in mind: To secretly listen to the strategies of anybody trotting by. And it didn’t take long for his prey to fall into the shack trap.
It was another beautiful blindside. Tony Vlachos orchestrated a chaotic scheme to vote LJ McKanas, a horse trainer from Massachusetts, out of Survivor: Cagayan. His plan worked and LJ, the “horse whisperer,” found himself seated on the jury. Although LJ says he is bitter about Tony’s decision, he doesn’t hold it against him. Instead, LJ repeated multiple times in our interview that Tony is the only person truly playing the game. In our chat, LJ also revealed why he’s frustrated with Trish Hegarty, explains why he’s been in touch with casting about the possibility of playing the game again and reveals what “LJ” actually stands for.
Tony Vlachos is a name we will long be associating with Survivor. His big moves and big personality on Survivor: Cagayan will go down as one of the most memorable in the show’s history. Tonight’s episode centralized on Tony’s paranoia. No joke. The ENTIRE episode focused on what Tony’s next move would be. He was so paranoid that he found himself focused on targeting a member of his solid six-way alliance. Why? He didn’t like the fact he got votes at the previous Tribal Council and felt like it was time to make the move to boot LJ out of the game. Did his plan pan out?

Lazy. Queen. A dying dog. Definitely not the kindest of words, but these were all used to describe Morgan McLeod on Survivor: Cagayan by her fellow castaways. The self-described cutie took a lot of heat — especially in the latest episode — but was it all warranted? I spoke with Morgan about her apparent laziness and discussed her feelings toward Kass. Interestingly, she is also the second person I’ve interviewed this season who says Trish is playing the best game (?!?!). But my favorite nugget of info came when she talked about being selected for the show. Turns out she was friends with two former One World contestants who got her in touch with casting. As always, it’s all about who you know.
