After last week’s crazy Tribal Council, could Survivor: Cagayan get any better? In one word: YES! A pair of awesome challenges, former allies clashed and there was the wildest hunt for a hidden Immunit Idol ever seen. With just six weeks left until the big finale (Wednesday, May 21), this epic season is edging closer to declaring the winner — and I’m on the edge of my seat!!!
Fans are gushing praise for this week’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan after a wild Tribal Council brought two hidden Immunity Idols into play before a big blindside. Sarah Lacina, the castaway on the bad end of the blindside, discussed that shocking moment with us in an interview Thursday. While saying she doesn’t hate Kass McQuillen for switching sides and voting against her, she did declare that the two of them will never have a friendship outside of the game. She also weighed in on Tony and revealed which castaway she believes is playing the best game (it just might surprise you).
The commercials for this week’s episode were promising a shocking Tribal Council on Survivor: Cagayan. So many times before, the “shocking” promises don’t deliver. But tonight, it was literally another jaw-dropping hour of television. This season of Survivor is proving to be one of the best with great characters, big strategy and incredible blindsides! If you missed this episode, you really did miss out on several exciting moments.
You read that headline right. Alexis Maxwell, one of the funniest, most bubbly castaways I’ve ever interviewed, says she landed her spot on Survivor: Cagayan for her twerking ability. Strangely, she and her father actually applied to be on the show together even before CBS decided to do Survivor: Blood Vs. Water. Alexis also admits she could forsee the exact days the tribal swap and merge were coming. How? These are just a few of the fun factoids Alexis, who openly admits her numerous game mistakes, dished out when we talked today. I think you’re really going to appreciate this one. Enjoy!
Does she regretting quitting Survivor: Cagayan? ”Hell no!” Despite her desire to stay in the competition, Lindsey Ogle, a hairstylist from Indiana, opted to remove herself from the game to prevent a possible physical showdown with her arch enemy, Trish Hegarty. From the first day, the two never seemed to gel and it all ignited in an argument at Solana beach when Lindsey’s ally, Cliff, was voted out. To escape the war of words, Lindsey walked away and sat in the sand away from camp. When Jeff Probst arrived, she was ready to pull herself out of the game. Today, I got to chat with Lindsey about her decision at length. She stands by her move and became emotional at one point when discussing her daughter. Although she did ultimately wish Trish the best in life, it didn’t stop Lindsey from dishing her true opinions of the woman she was moments away from scrapping with. Plus, Lindsey also weighed in on a goofy YouTube video — see it for yourself inside this article — that’s circulating online that mimics Trish’s scratchy laugh. Enjoy!
The twist of Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty may have dissolved on Survivor: Cagayan, but a new battle has brewed — Lindsey vs. Trish. As soon as the Aparri tribe returned to camp after Cliff was voted out of the game, the spat started. Trish immediately started prodding Lindsey about having nowhere to turn in the game now that her alliance was dead. Lindsey snapped back saying everything about Trish is annoying — including her laugh, teeth and face. Sure, arguments happen all the time on Survivor. It’s what happened next that got Jeff Probst involved.
After getting a later-than-usual premiere, Survivor: Cagayan will have a later-than-usual finale date. But there’s an even bigger change. For the first time since the original season, the finale will be held on a Wednesday night. CBS made the announcement today without offering any reason for the finale shift. When is the finale slated to take place? Find out inside this article!
His presence was unmistakable. Cliff Robinson was a towering force on Survivor: Cagayan. Because of his strength and imposing size, Cliff became an instant target. Hell, his own tribe even tried to purposely lose a challenge earlier this season just so they could vote him off. Once the battle of Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty was dissolved into two new tribes, Cliff found himself on the bad end of the vote as his new Solana tribemates sent him packing — primarily at the hands of Tony and his lies. What does Cliff have to say about Tony today? Was he truly blindsided or did he have a clue that he was about to be voted off? Check out all those answers and more inside.
“Drop your Buffs.” Jeff Probst uttered those famous words as the three tribes on Survivor: Cagayan — Brains, Brawn, Beauty — were dissolved into two new divisions. While many fans seemed happy with this twist already popping up, I’m bummed out. I wanted to go another one or two episodes with the triple tribe competition. It would have been fun to watch the Brains tribe battle the others without J’Tia Taylor‘s worthlessness around. Would it have made a difference? Could Spencer overcome another vote? All questions that will remained unanswered forever. Oh well. To see how the new tribes shuffled out and for more pictures from the episode, check out full details inside.
Oh, J’Tia Taylor. Being a nuclear engineer, it was fitting that she was placed on the Brains tribe of Survivor: Cagayan. But some of her decisions, like dumping out nearly all of her tribe’s rice on Day 6, left some fans wondering how the hell this supposed brainiac was able to survive this long. In my interview with her, J’Tia explained her reasoning behind dumping out the rice and responded to David’s post-game comments in which he called her useless. Plus, J’Tia revealed why she believes she could have won the game. Jump inside this story for the full interview and to see loads of pictures from the show.
